A leading paper of this class Is the "New Yorker Staats Zeltung." On the fourth anniversary of the war, In a review of tho war It asked what Carman? had achieved in the four faers. In answer It found that Germany has taken possession of nearly all of Belgium and a part of northern France; that she has taken rich booty and many prisoners; that she has enslaved the Poles, Russians, Roumanians, Serbians, Montenegrins; that he has helped Bulgaria and Turkey to increase their territory and encouraged the massacre of over a million Armenians; that sho has sunk millions of tona of shipping and destroyed proporty worth billions, "allowing no regard for the lives of non-combatants, not eveu for those of women ami children."
