question '.bout the balloon.
, Karly Thurrday morning a man
came '.nto the office, of the Intolll

a oalloon about forty yards from bis
house Wednesday morning, bearing a
tag which called for a three months

the man's name was Maslc Johnson,,
and that he lived on Mr. Daniels' place
tbre? miles from Anderson. He got
a pair of $2.00 chi ld red's shoes toe

A negro .man, who failed to give

no formal violation of ' neutral*?/1
Germany, therefore, did pot complain
Of any formal violation of neutrality,
bul the German government, in view
of complete evidence before it, can
not help pointing out that it, togeth
er with the entire public opinion of
Germany, feels itself to be. peverely
prejudiced by the fact that neutrals
In safeguarding their righten legits

cording to international law have, up
?*?. tim prCwC?t,- ???hi?i"3^ ? ii?, or osiy'l
insignificant, results, while they are.
making unlimited use of their right
by carrying on contraband traffic with
Great Britain and eur other enemies.
"If it ia a formal right of neutrals
to take no steps to protect their legi
timate trade with Germany, and even
to allow themselves to be Influenced
in the direction ot the conscious and
wilful restriction of their trade, oh the]
other bund, they ha Ve the perfect
right, which they unfortunately do not
exercise, to cease contraband trade/
especially i narm-, with Germany's
Using Some Method.
"In view ot this situation Germany,

Germany, summons hunger as an ally,

Britain dangers arise which threaten
all trade within the war zone, without
distinction. This -Js a neutral result
of mute warfare, which even under the
strictest observance of the limits of
International law endangers every
Ship approaching the mine area. The
German government considers itself
entitled to hope that all neutrals will
acquiesce in these measures as they
have done in the case of the grievous
.amaices inflicted upon them by Brit
Ish measures, all the more so as Ger
many bs received, for the protection
of neutral shipping, tven in the naval

"In view of the fact that Germany
gave the fir?t proof of her good will
in fixing a time limit of not less than
fourteen days' before the execution
of said measures, so that neutral ship
ping might have an opportunity of
making arrangements to avoid threat
ening danger, this can most surely be
achieved by remaining away from the
naval war tone. Neutral vessels,
Witch, despite this ample notice which
greatly affects the achievement of our
alma In our war against Great Britain,
enter these closed waters will them
selves bear the responsibility for any
unfortunate accidents that may occur,
Germany disclaims all responsibility
for such accidents and consequence*
"Germany,has further expressly an
nounced the destruction of all enemj
merchant vjassels found within the wai
zone, but not the destruction of al'
merchant vessels, as the United Statei
seems erroneously to have understood
This restriction which Germany 1m
poses upon Itself is prejudicial to th?
aim of our warfare, especially as ii
the application of the conception o
contraband practiced by Great Brltati
towards Germany-which presuroptioi
will not also be similarly interprete*
by Germany-the presumption will
be that neutral ships have contrabani
aboard. Germany naturally is un
willing to renounce its rights to as
certain the presence of contraband ii
neutral vessels, sr J in certain case

point out that'all its effort* in thl
