WORLD PLAN TO IE OPINIO1 Acquired Control Newspapers In Neutral Countries to Further Propaganda A persistent feature of the German propagandist literature earlier in the war was'the reiterated statement that Germany . was. .fighting against lies. Germans were so hysterical about "the lie"' that It was some time before it became'clear what they meant. What they did mean was that on the outbreak of, war Britain had very naturally cut the'cables'to'America,''so that it was no longer possible for Germany to send out to her agents by cable either secret instructions or her own account of events; her statements had to be sent by wireless in face of the world. It was a matter which showed the enormous importance attached by GermanB to their own propaganda, to the network of agencies whereby their own version of events and motives was to be spread throughout the world. Some of the steps taken by Germany in 'this behalf are pretty well known; in particular, the organization of the Press I .Bureau of tho German Foreign office, under the notorious Dr. Hammann, for Influencing the foreign press and the large secret service fund at the disposal of the foreign office for subsidizing papers abroad. {Secured Neutral Newspapers The most characteristic German device was that whereby Germany acquired tho ownership or control of one or more papers in some neutral country, which outwardly retained tho air of newspapers of that country; these published articles in the Ger-Xiiin interest, which were then quoted In the German press at home as proof of neutral opinion-a form of fraud which has now, perhaps lost its utility, but which has been very useful to pro-German pacifists. A much more comprehensive German scheme, however, for influencing the press abroad became known to the British government early in 1914 and was published by them (Blue Book No. 9, of 1914, cd. 7595,. It is not, we fancy, as well known as it deserves to be, and an outline of it may be of interest". Apart from the information received by the British government, details of the scheme were published in the Deutsche Export Revue, of June 5, ,1914; German official quarters found this publicity ' extremely inopportune and embarrassing, and orders were issued that the article was not to bo reproduced or referred to in any way. The scheme originated in the German belief that in certain foreign countries Germany could not obtain a fair hearing in the press. Various plans were taken in hand to meet this, among thein one lo Htart a German-American Economic society. Heir Ballin, of the Hamburg-American line, was approached as to this, and ho consented to take the matter up, but endeavored to get the idea of a world society (Weltverein) substituted in jts place. Differences, however arose; Ballin dropped his largor scheme, and the'plan of a Cierman-Amerlka society was revived. Ballin, however, had only accepted defeat In appearance; what had really happened was that at tho request of very, highly-placed personB,; his interest had been transferred to another mere delicate and more or less secret organization, devised to undertake those duties of the Weltverein which concerned the German reputation abroad. Leading Men In Scheme In February, 1914, a meeting was held at the German foreign office, at which Dr, Hammann and the foreign secretary met representatives of most of the leading business concerns of Germany-north German Lloyd, Ham-burg-Amerika, Deutsche bank, Dia-conto Gesellschaft, AUgarrte'ino Elect vlcltatsgeselleschaft, Siemens & lialske, Schuckert-Slemens, Krupp, etc. At thi3 meeting a private company was formed with tho purposo of "furthering German  Industrial pros-tige abroad." The directorate consisted of Privy Councillor von Borslg; Landrath noetger (retired); and Herr Sohaeht, a director or the Deutsche bank; and there waB a strong administrative board, consisting largely of representatives of well known business undertakings. The monjborB were to subscribe �12,500 a year, which was in fact subscribed twice over, the government were to add �12,500 from the uecrot service fund. HON.

Ho created tho organization fur this purpose with great labor, and In face of gront obstacles.

It Is well to be clear that after the war wo shall probably have again to reckon with the activities of this organization. Amsterdam, July 5.-The Jordan of Amsterdam, the Telegraf reports, was invaded yeuterday by 300 women from tho Kattonburg district armed 'with bayonets, revolvers and stones. A collision with tho police took place at the Keizorschracht, a woman firing a shot but missing tho murk. Another collision occurred in tho Jowlsh quarter between the strikers and the police. It is reportod that a boy was wounded and died in a hospital. Largo quantities of potatoes aro arriving, the curs being guarded by police and soldiers. The garrison has boon reinforced by strong detachments of cavalry and infantry. Tho rioting in Amsterdam has been chiefly due to tho scarcity of potatoes and export to England, which the government is committed under agreements to preserve its trade relations with both the Entente and Germans. Four persons were reported killed And nineteen injured Tuesday night, when a mob which wnB pillaging shops was fired upon. Rioting occurrod yesterday in tho Kattonburg area, a market district. INDIAN TR00P8 PUNISH RAIDING FRONTIER CLAN3 London, July 1.-The return of a punitivo expedition from tho district of Wuziristan, in the northwest frontier province on the border between .India.and Afghanistan, is roported in an official, �ta,te,ment issued tonight. The, ;Htaf,ementI; reads; "On June'25 the force in Wuziristan returned to lspana'Jtaghza, currying out punitive measures en route. The opposition encounterod was negligible Our airplanes raided Makln and Mar-obi with considerable offoct." Alohmand tribesmen who lived in northwest India gave tho British government much trouble early In 1915 and in November, 1915, by breaking through the hills on raids into tho northwest frontier province On each occasion the British dispersed the boa-tile forces. 15 :H 08 ;
