Rule Means To
Systematic Exploitation Of Belgium
Under The Rathcr.au Tlan Is
Told In Official Taper
Washington, D. C. May 1 The sys
tematic exploitation ofV Helium by
the Germans under flip so-called
"Hathenau Plan" is revealed for the
first time to the American people in
the latest publication of the Commit
tee on Public Information, issued to
day, entitled "Gennan Treatment of
Conquered Territory." It is based
upon unpublished reports to our De
patment of State, and other sources
as yet little known in this country,
and presents an appallinp record of
calculated German greed and brutal
ity. Much of the most, damninjr ev
idence is derived from the oOicial or
ders and other utterances of the Ger
The Rathenau plan was suggested
early In August, 1911, by Dr. Walter
Itathcnau, president of the General
Electric Company of Germany. It
consisted essentially in the formation,
under his direction, of a bureau to
procure an unfailing supply of
eftsential raw materials for the war,
fiuch as rubber, saltpetre, metals, etc.,
both by purchase in neutrals markets
and by seizure in occupied territories.
Secretly a more dastardly purpose
was pursued. "The plan aimed not
merely at making war support war
by contributions and requisitions forc
ed from the conquered peoples. It
also sought to destroy the industries
among the subject peoples so that it
might not be possible to build them
up again for some years, if at all. In
the meantime, the German authorities
counted upon their ability to capture
the markets of the world for their
As an example of the deliberate
crushing of Belgian competition, the
case of the glass industry Is cited.
This was one of the most flourishing
industries of Belgium before the war,
and German glass manufacturers
could not compete with it in the ex
port trade. In tho words of the head
of the German organization of glass
manufacturers, "It became vital to
the German manufacturers of glass
wares that the Belgian manufacturers
should be stopped from going to
neutral markets." Accordingly, the
German administration in Belgium
was appealed to, and it promulgated
"an order stopping importation, tran
sit, and exportation" of these goods.
Seizure of Belgian trade secrets was
another feature of this typically Ger
The extent to which Belgium has
been denuded of its wealth, war ma
terials, machinery, means of trans
port and man power under this iniq
uitous plan is almost unbelievable.
"All crude materials indispensable for
Belgian industries," reported Brand
Whitlock, our Minister to Belgium, as
early as August 2, 1915, "were re
quisitioned and sent to Germany
leather, hides, copper, wool, flax, etc.
Furthermore, if not the entire stock,
at least the greatest number possible
of machinery parts were shipped to
Germany, to be used, according to
German statements, in making muni
tions which Belgian factories had re
fused to produce." Belgian draft
horses, the best in the world, were
seized and sent to Germany to be sold
to German farmers. A long list com
piled from the German official ordin
ances is given of the articles ordered
seized in Belgium. It comprises some
300 separate items, listed under such
headings as minerals and metals,
chemicals, machinery, food clothing,
textiles, household articles, old ma
terial, oils and explosives, metal prod
ucts for industrial establishments,
medical supplies, etc. The articles
range from tungsten steel to ground
slag, from electric condensers and
conductors to printer's slugs and
matrices, from all grains for bread
making to oat straw, from bath tubs
to stair-carpet rods and door-knobs,
from old rags to tho skins, horns,
feet, bones and carcasses of horses,
calves, goats, rabbits, and dogs. Noth
ing apparently is overlooked or for
gotten in this ruthless robbery of the
quivering victim. It is German effi
ciency joined to German unscru
pulousness and disregard of all rights
on the part of those not able to de
Other chapters In this publications,
which may be obtained free by writ
ing to 8 Jackson Place, Washington,
D. C, are devoted to pillage and arson
as practiced by German officers and
troops; to the deliberate burning of
the rich city of Louvain, on tho false
charge that the citizens had fired on
German troops; and to the wanton
destruction of houses, orchards, and
every work of man carried out last
sping in northern Fance when Hinden
burg was forced to fall back from the
region of the Somme.
Professor Dana C. Munro, of Prince
ton University, is the compiler, assist
ed by George C. Sellery, of the Uni
versity of Wisconsin, and August C.
Krey, of the University of Minnesota.
Tho pamphlet is part two of "Ger
man War Practices," the first part
of which, by the same authors, was
issued several months ago.
"In some respects the materials In
this part," write the authors in tho
introduction, "which deals with the
treatment of conquered territory,
seems at first of a less brutal and re
volting chaacter, as injury to property
is always less serious than murder
and enslavement of people. But
when the treatment of conquered
territory Is studied carefully it is
clear that the system shows itself
here in an even more brutal form,
because the systematic exploitation
and wanton destruction would inevi
tably lead to starvation of the popula-
Puunene Falls Down
Before Wailuku Men
(Continued from rage One.)
with two men down, Mahrr having
opted the gani" by striking out the
first man up, Bal knocked a homer
an;l brought Akion home ahead of
him. With the score tied, both teams
settled down to playing baseball, re
tiring each other in the regulation
oji( two, three, order.
Hut the sixth inning proved highly
disastrous to Tuunene. Errors on
their part, hits and good base running
by Wailuku allowed four scores to
tally. Jupiter Pluvius also scored an
assist in this inning.
In tho 7th, Maher took first base,
and Wicke took his place, but It was
impossible to cage the Wailuku Tigers
after they had once tasted blood.
Mahor showed that he was not a
stranger to this position; a long
stretch assisted in making a put-out
when Sylva, the Wailuku speed-merchant,
was about to beat out a bunt.
The first game wag a sort of swat
fest, with the Cubs emerging on the
long end by the narrow margin of
one run. What the Juniors lack in
practise they have In spirit and en
thusiasm. Both teams fought to the
bitter end, or rather to the seventh,
when the game was called to make
way for the "big boys." The Orien
tals used throe pitchers, and of these,
Alo, with his slow twister made the
best showing for he had the Cubs
guessing for a long time until they
learned to wait.

opening ho was a little wild, but he
became better, with the assistance of
Pomho, as his confidence in his sup
Tho next engagement is between
those rivals of old, Paia and Wailuku.
History tells us that there will be
something doing, for if Wailuku wins
she will be still in the lead, with two

makes it even all around, a three

May Be Made At Fair
Recently the Maui committees for
the food conservation exhibit at the
coming Honolulu fair were in a dilem
ma about samples of .food that would
become perishable during transit to
Honolulu. A new rule adopted by Ho
nolulu authorities solves the problem
most satisfactorily. "Non-residents
of Oahu wishing to exhibit in any of
the classes on the official list may
send the recipe for one article In any
class to Mrs. James Russel, Y. W. C.
A., Honolulu, with sufficient money to
cover cost of ingredients, and the
article, made strictly in accordance
with the recipe, will be prepared and
exhibited as the exhibit, of the person
sending the recipe."
Law Of Compensation
"I just saw Suburbs after his being
snowed in for a week."
"How'd he feel?''
"Happy as a lark. He said that he
just got a cook out there on the after
noon that the big blows started and
she couldn't get back to town, either."
tion, especially of the aged, feeble,
and the children, and to the forced
enslavement of the able-bodied work
ers. Furthermore, the results of
these evils will not end with the war,
but will be perpetuated. The con
quered lands, even after they regain
their freedom, will suffer long and
grievously from the enfeeblement of
the population caused by the misery
during the occupation of tho countries
by the Germans."

Went via Hana And Kohala
When Major Clark left Kahului on
Thursday afternoon, after the un
eventful flight from Honolulu in the
morning, it was 3 o'clock. He had
expected to get away earlier, but
difficulty in starting the motor caused
over an hour's delay. He had an
nounced his intention of taking a
route that would have carried him
around tho west side of Haleakala,
over Ulupalakua and Makena, but he
evidently changed his mind after
starting, for the machine flew east

Nahiku, Hana and Kipahulu. It was
seen plainly at most of these points.

especially those which contain a high
