The recent discovery of Spanish
newspapers which contained German
propaganda and were addressed to
an alien enemy on Kauai, but which
were surpressed by the post office
department brings to mind an article
which was published in the Review
of Reviews for June and which tells
of the German influence in Spain.
It is as follows:
The uninterupted propaganda car
ried on by the Germans in favor of
the cause of the Central Powers and
of the Spanish neutrality has always
found an echo with the Spanish peo
ple and it cannot be denied that the
Germans have displayed much great
er practical sense In this activity
than have the Entente Powers.
From the very beginning of the
war, they organized in Spain a num
ber of active committees, not only
for propaganda work but also for
those who were eufferng from the
effects of the war, and this has earn
ed for them the sympathies of thou
sands of Spaniards. '
Germany has not hesitated to
spend money freely; her propaganda
In Spain is said to have cost her
$60,000,000. Not only this, but she
has Bent her best diplomatic agents
her best military attaches, and Bpies
of all orders.
Given the neglect of Spain by the
Allies, and the prejudices and mis
understandings that already existed,
nothing short of an equally active
counter propaganda could have over
come the German influence. But the
Entente Powers, placing their de
pendence upon the personal sympath
ies of the King and Queen, have only
spent about $20,000 in opposition to
the $60,000,000 of the Teuton money.
France alone, which was the first
nation to understand the necessity
for effort in this direction, sent into
Spain thousands of copies of propa
ganda literature, composed to suit the
Spanish trend of thought. 'As almost
all Spaniards are professing Catho
lics, they were Inclined to look upon
republican France as a land of Jac
obins and libertines, a land that had
fallen prey to an anarchy and was
therefore destined to a sad downfall.
In vew of this hostile attitude of the
Spanish people, the phamplets Issued
by the French treated the war from
a strictly religious standpoint. Thus
Mon8ignor Baudrillart, who has re
cently been publicly congratulated
for his propaganda work by the
French government, wrote a pam
phlet entitled "The German War and
Catholicism," which had a large cir
culation in Spain, as had also the
theological study by the Archbishop
of Nice, "France and Germany and
the Christian Doctrine Regarding
War." But ihcse publications have
had little lasting effect.
The Spanish press, with the excep
tion of certain liberal organs, has
been favorable to the Central Pow
ers from the outset of the war. A
country like Spain, exhausted by the
struggls of the past century, and
longing for peace, for a regenerating
peace, offered a splendid field for
the German propaganda and the Ger
mans have not failed to utilize the
opportunity given them by the neg
lect of this land on the part of the
It must not be forgotten that Spain
always looks with longing eyes at
Gibraltar, and can neither forget or
forgive its loss. This was brought
out in an address delivered by Vas
quez de Mella, the spokesman of the
Spanish Carlists. He declared that
the recovery of Gibraltar would
make Spain the ruler of the Strait,
would lead to a federation with Por
tugal and the political unity of the
Peninsula. "Then," he said, "We can
take our stand on this extrems point
of Europe, and looking toward the
peoples of America, we can exclaim:
'We have created you from our flesh
and blood. You are the product of
our civilization. Let us then form
together the United States of South

The Part that Civilians
Play in the Great War
Seperated by 3,000 miles of ocean
and protected by our,Navy, our civ
ilian population can during this war
continue to live In the same secur
ity as in peace times. The Hun In
vaders are not In our midst.. We are
spared the agony that came to the
women and children and old men of
Belgium, France and Serbia and oth
er over-run countries. While thus se
cure from harm we must not forget
that the civilian populations of these
desolated countries are as much our
allies as are there fighting men.. Let
us realize more deeply their traged
ies. Read this testimony of Brand Whit
lock, who as our minister to Belgium
knows what it means for a land to be
occupied by German troops.
"Tamlnes is a little mining town on
the Sarabre. The little church stands
on the village green overlooking the
river, Its facade all splotched where
the bullets and grapeshot spattered
against it. And In tho little graveyard
beside the church' there are hundreds
of hew made graves, long rows of
them, each with Its small wooden
cross and Its bit of flowers. The cross
es stand in serried rows, bo closely
that they make a little thicket, with
scarcely room to walk between them.
They were all new, of painted wood,
alike except for the names and the
ages thirteen to eighty-four. But
they all bore the same sinBter date
August 22, 1914.
'The Germans began to pillage and
burn the houses, 676 of them, then
they turned all the inhabitants Into
the street, promiscuously marching
them about. It went on for long hours;
they were given no food or drink.
During a halt they forced them to lie
beneath the machine guns, then they
lined tnem up against the church wall
and performed a mock exeoution
About 600 men were massed In St.
Martin's Square, on the river bank,
and their wives, mothers, daughters
were assembled by the soldiers to wit
ness the scene.
"They lined up their victims in
three rows along the Sambre and
tumbled 150 of them head over heels
Into the river, shoving back with their
bayonets those who attemped to clmg
to the bank. Only four or five es
caped by swimming. During this first
execution the machine guns were
trained on the. remaining lines. When
the firing had ceased that night, there
were more than 400 dead; their bodies
lying there, women, too, and children.
And the graves are there near by, In
the cemetery, and the ages given are
from 13 to 84." .
The part that these civilians played
in the war was to bring to the civilzed
world the realization of what it would
mean for German arms to conquor,
In playing their part they gave their
lives in the most cruel way a beaBtly
enemy could devise.
What part will our civilian popula
tion play in the war? Will It go along
living as it did before the war, or will
it glory In the opportunity to serve In
the tremendous task of defeatng civili
zation's enemy? Each individual must
decide that question. He can prolong
the world's agony or he can save
save and sacrifice to the utmost of
his ability and with his savings buy

be more money, labor, and materials
