NAILING THE LIES. II GERMAN FABLES I REPLIED TO. I I THROWING IT BACK TO THEM. | R L -1" 11 j Renter s Agency is authorised from a wiii- informed British iuuree to state that the followin may be regarded as the view taken of the latest German and Austrian otes to neutrals. Theie are certain joints in the state- ments of the German Government which it will perhaps be well to take the oppor- tun it y of contradicting at the earliest pos- Fible moment. The Germans once again attempt to throw upon the Entente Powers the re- spomnhJllty for the starting of the war. The facts are so well known that it seems unnecessary to do more than point out that during the- crisis of July. 1914, it was the Allies who proposed a conference, and it was Germany who rejected it. As for Russia, the Czar suggested in vain a re- jfeience to the Hague Tribunal, but Ger- many would have none of it. The proposal for a conference was made on July 26th, ..914, and was it-fti.,ed by Germany cm July 61th. 1914. while :t v-as not until July olst that orders were given for the general mubih?at!on of Russia. I ?hoi the German Secretar"v of State I I Tefused to entertain the idea of a- con- fere.I'cP he ?d that ii Ru?ia mobiiised agamst Germany the i.a?r wouJd have i-o I iollow siut. as when he refused the Con- j tercnoe he referred to the possibility at Hussian niobihsation. It cannot now be maintained the reason for the rafusal was the fact thrit Russia, "as mobilising. The Germa]? state the propoM? ?f the A!? as to rights of ?ma?I nationaHties ack sincerity in view of the treatment o? the Ir?h people and the Boer Republic, of the? siibjectMn of.Northern Africa by Eng- land, France, .?nd Ital?- of the 'ifppre?ion of foreign iidtkiialitics in Russia, and of the 1 treatment of Greece. I As for Ireland and South Africa, their sons j1,ne ?ho?-n on many a'"battle- Hcid in ih? p?e:? war, as the Germane 1 knew to their c?t.th?t whatever diSer- enee^ there may hjve been between, those countries and Great Britain,■ tley u Hi ted with the resst <JI the Empne in re- pelling German aggression, As for Northern Africa-, at the begin- ning of this war had not the Germans two great colonies in Afrkvr? Did th-py not I attain tllo,c colonies -by means similar to I those which have .placed the French. Italians, and British in control in Northern Africa? As for Russia, iL is strange in a country which the Germans describe as the land of t-Ile Of small nationalities the whole nation should be absolutely united against the con)mon foe. With regard to Greece, the Allies have done no more than exact, in their capacity of a protecting" Power, the guarantees to which they are entitled aigainst German intrigue to proted the ?zafety-of their own armies. The Germans maintain the AHics wpre hr?t to ou 111 me nee violation of the laws of war at sea. What are the fads? From i-.e be- ginning of the war the Germans sowed mines indiscriminately on trade routes :n Defiance of all International Law and with a total disrespect of the righto and lives of the neutrals. The Getmar.s further maintain that aN blockade is con- trary to international law. This is entirely f?e. The right of cutting off supplier of the enemy is a well-recognised beMigerent ri?ht practised by all nations. The avowed purposes at the submarine measures of Germany were to cut off all supplie from these island. This c?mpai?n has been carried out ruthlessly with a total disregard "f the rights of neutrals and their lives. I Even the Germans cannot pretend to ex- (-use such crimes as those of the Lusitania, Ara bic, the Sussex and many others. The Germans profess to regard as in- human the employment of starvation as a weapon. Were thev of the same opinion in 1870 I When they starved the City of Paris? The Germans attempt once more tc justify their, violation of Belgium and their treatment of that country. Have they forgotten that at the beginning of the war their own Chancellor admitted that the violation of Belgian territory was wrong, but claimed that it was Justified by military necessity," a truly German contention which is suffi- cient to typify the policy against which the Allies are fighting.
