The German government's v>-ord on any;t is worth nothing unletia un-conlradieted. in this case it ,is contradicted by the testimony of eyewitnesses of the eight Spanish pallors laken frofn the Grnviua and of two prisonor.s of war. It will be assumed by everybody that the eight Spaniards and the tM'o prisoners of war are telling the truth, especially as ilieir stories all agree, and that the German government is lolling as natch truth as it did when it officially assured the i)resident of the United States that its submarine did not sink the Sussex." ^ICE-FIXIi FMEINGEiliy Washington.
