I NO MERCY. I a I GERMAN ADMIRAL CALLS FOR RECKLESS I BtTAUAflOX. | I TOO HUMANE ? AMSTERDAM, Dec. 24. I In support of the idea of employing sub- marines to sink British merchant vessels now being advocated in the German press, J ftear-Adnural Sc-lilieper contributes a re- markable article to the "Berliner Loka- I-eiger," in which the following sea- tencee are of special interest. He states that the German has always been the loser with regard to England. as he never could overcome a certain sentimental i'tel- ing of justice and delicacy, which ia es- pecially peculiar to him even in cases' where other feelings would have been! more suitable. "We waste too much time on purely humane things, which torment and torture us, while our adversaries seize the opportunity and recklessly do us harm whenever and wherever that can be done. So, too, now England is waging a business war against us, and hopes to be able to crush us economically. We have been contented till now with occa- sional parrying. We must, without doubt, return tit for tat, and begin a system- atical and reckless war of retaliation against British commerce. No Mercy." For this we a most efficient tool in our submarines. Here we have a new weapon in our hands, which, though (only recently and carefully developed by us- has already proved a splendid suc- cess. It has shown results which have not remained unnoticed byt neutral Powers, and which have done much to I m the alleged supremacy of Great Britain on the 6ea. One must strike while the iron is hot, and, natur- 1 ally, this new weapon must not merely be employed against hostile battle-I ships, but against all ships under the enemy's nag approaching the English coast. We can announce our standpoint to all neutral Powers, but then, no mercy, j Oh, those German barbarians,' we already hear honest Englishmen say. Towards an enemy like England, who I knows no leniency where the question of reaching her aim is concerned, and who, with tho greatest want of principle, dis- owns the white race and fights shoulder to shoulder with coloured peoples— towards such enemy we need know no leniency. England means to crush, and for that purpose sbe will not allow her- self to be turned either by treaties or I agreements. Unprecedented Audacity. I She also displays unprecedented I audacity in the harm she does to neutral l States, all with the one purpose of crush- ing us, Have we, then, any reason for answering with special delicacy ? f The German submarine has caused widespread terror. Why not at those places where supplies are brought to England ? The idea of destroying the enemy's commerce and troopships is something convincing, and produces agreeable fel- ings. In this weapon Germany has an advantage which must be used quicldy and with all determination. Anyone under the enemy's flag who thinks this barbarous or inhuman may do so, but our advice must be up and at them.'
