The paper contends that such transfer of tonnage by neutrals is tantamount to indirect participation by neutrals In economic war against Germany and involves serious danger of complications as already shown in the history of the United States during the present war. It adds that participation by neutrals in such negotiations Is an act hardly consonant with neutrality.
