Amsterdam, Holland, May Handelsblad, commenting on the Lu- sitania, says "The torpedoing of the Lusitania has caused a profound impression here. A people such as ours, which always has been a seafaring people, has the right and it is its duty to express its indignation at the barbar- ous manner of German warfare ou the sea, which violates that which always has been respected. "Recently the Germans sunk more than 20 "defenseless fishing boats. Now, without warning, they :have sunk a big mail steamer, the Lusi- tania. This'act is ppposeu TO every law and every sentiment of hUman- ity. We raise our voice, however po'werless it may be, in protest. A seafaring people which has any sell- respect does not- make a" war upon defenseless people."
