Dutch Do Not Much
Like German Idea
Of Fair Treatment
Amsterdam, July 6 Ast. Tress)
An imaginary dialogue between a
Dutchman and a German, published
in the Telegraaf, shows the state of
public opinion over the German refus
al to permit Dutch ships to sail for
America to bring wheat for Holland.
"Why are you always pestering me?
Why don't you hold your tongue? the
"Hut why can't I have wheat for
my hread?" asked the Dutchman.
"What do I care ahout that? Don't
I send you coal?"
"Yes, but "
"None of your impudence", retorts
the German. "And what do you Fend
me in exchange?"
"Vegetables, cheese and milk. Also
meat, and a little of every thing bc-f-ides.
And I give you credit for it,
too", replies the Hollander.
"What are you complaining about,
then? lie thankful that I still allow
you to trade with me. I might have
taken everything I wanted of you
without giving you a scrap in return."
"Have you the right to do so?"
"Right? I make my own right", is
the German response.
"Itnt my wheat ?"
"Why should you have wheat? Have
we any wheat?"
"At least allow us to give tonnage
to America in exchange for wheat."
"Certainly not. If you give tonnage
you strengthen the enemy, and lie
who does that is my enemy also."
"And what do you do to your en
emy?" "I club him to death and take all
"Then if I give up tonnage you
club me to death, and if don't, I starve
"I don't object", says the German.
"Do I ask you to keep alive? It is
we who must live; you don't matter."

The small, but brave little British
