Cologne, November 16. The editorial board of the Kölnische Zeitung in its issue of November 16 describes itself brilliantly as follows:

“In our wavering between fear of anarchy today and fear of reaction tomorrow one is forcibly reminded of Luther’s words: ‘Man is like a drunken peasant; if he mounts a horse on one side, he fails off on the other.'”

Fear is the emotion of the Kölnische Zeitung.
