Arthur Brisbane, whose editorials reached upto 20 million people, describes the spread of the influenza from Spain to Germany and now England. He calls it a democratic epidemic, and hopes it spreads to the Kaiser and his family. Brisbane also relates that President Wilson will not allow the telegraph strike to proceed.
