England justified in declaring: war on Germany? Mr. Beck holds that Eng laud WHS not only abundantly justl lied, but was in honor bound to do so for Germany's action in regard-to Bel whose neutrality England was solemnly pledged to protect, was "the negation of all that civilization slant for." A Supreme Court, he declares could have no. ground for doubt or hesitation on this point. Its Judg- ment, would bo speedy and inexorable. Germany's evidence on this point, he points out, is in fact a plea of .before the, whole'world. In the spring of 1913, the German. Secre- tary of State, Herr Von Jagow. stated In the Reichstag: "The neutrality of Belgium is by 'international con- 'ventions, and Germany is resolv- ed to respect thoso conventions." To" confirm this solemn assurance, the Minister of War added in the same debate: "Belgium does not play any part in the justification of the German scheme of military re- organization. The scheme is jus- .tifled. by, the possibility of mat-" -ters in the East Germany will not lose sight of the fact that Bel- gium neutrality is guaranteed by interaalional treaties." A year.-later the German Minister of Brussels, Her Von Bulow, person- ally assured the Belgian government .hat the policy set forth by Herr Von Jagow last year still reflected the'at- itnde of the German government to- wards Belgian. the neutrality weuld be respected fay Ger- many. Yet on August V the Chan- cellor-of-the-German Empire, in his speech in the Reichstag said: "Our "troops have occupied Lux- ensbourg, and perhaps are already on Belgian soil.

The lawyer selected TTM 'James M. Beck, formerly At? Attorney General of the United States 'and a leader of the New, York Bar, who has argued many of the ;moat before the Supreme Mr. Beck sifts the official evidence as though this was the record filed -in a Supreme Court of Civilization, .and occupies two whole pages of the newspaper m a masterly analysis'and He holds that this evi- dence shows that in a time of pro- found peace Austria and Germany" liecretly concerted together to im- pose their will on Europe, and that their- whole course of conduct sug gests the possibility of their intention to (precipitate a general European war. vThey made war almost Inevitable by Issuing a grrviily un reasonable ulti- matum and in giving Servia and Eur ope Insufficient time- to consider the fights and obligations of all interest nations.
