Meantime, I hear 'he C.crmnn Am? bassador at Washington continues to flood the American Tress with his news "made in Germany"; or made in Wash ington. as the ease may be. An l-'n? lishman who is a friend of ours and in s position to act with effect came to mr yesterday to ask whether it would be advisable to set tin some kind of :t?i KiiKlish agency in the United States to counteract the German I begged him to do nothing of the kind; believing as 1 ?lo that the American public estimates these German fairy tales at their true value. I told him the best service he could do us in America would he to reduce his Censors here in London to order and to Common sense, line us tin- real news; we ask no more: the news not of what is going to happen, or. id:.. rennt Bernatorfrs, of what hai happened, bat of what has actually happened; the news of accomplished events. On those we think ourselves m America quite competent lo torn an opinion. Moreover, the English Gov? ernment hns at last woke np, m part, und is beginning to send and will con? tinue to semi to the Embassies ?broad nil official news 1 presume the Tress Bureau, even though reinforced by Mr. McEenna, will no' censure the die patches of us own Government t?> its own Amha.-sador. .l'y 1 'old my friend 1 had JUSI received n letter from Newport which might help him to? judge of the real position and influence of the Cern?an Ambassador in America.

I dwell on the Censorship because it 'is you all nearly in America. And it has now to be said that wheth? er for better or worse it has become a Government Department in charge of i.

Accounts come by cable ->f attempts a* peace-mongering in America by amiable enthusiasts like Mr. Oscar Straus, and b; Count Bernstorff. to whose name 1 prefix no epithet, and by ?he inevitable Mr. Bryan. Nobody here thinks them of importance. It is the settled opinion ol England and of her Allies that this is a contest which must be fought once for ail and fought to the end. But there are people who would really like to know what our invaluable Secretary ?if State now t!.i".k> of the Mr. Bryan who depicted Indu as tile oppressed of England, ii,ii her nat.vc rulers and people as hi ting their oppressor. i if tho^e native rulers Too have now i themselves and their troops and their resources to England for the war. In view of this fact, does Mr. Bryan th.' Secretarj of State now agree with Mr. Bryan the itinerant journalist.

BRITAIN INSINCERE, GERMANS ASSERT Berlin Declares Violation of Neutrality Did Not CauseWar. _ | PACT WITH FRANCE HAD LONG EXISTED Foreign Office Also Says There Was Agreement with Russia for Transport Landings. Berlin, Sept 4. Nobody in Germany is ?silling to admit the sincerity of Great Britain in basing in declrrr.tinn of war upon Germany's violation of the territory of Belgium and Luxemburg. and much alleged evidenM h produced in newspaper and magazines ?.o jirov? that Great Britain haci already mad" up its mind to join France and Hu**?? orevious to Germany's advance upon Belgian territory. In the high?-?t circles of the German I government it i? claimed that the For i eign Office ha? evidence that Great ? Britain was negotiating with Russia several months before the war broke ' out to furnish ships for a descent of I Russian troops on the coaut of Pome rania, which lies on the Baltic Sea, to ' the north of Berlin, but it appears that I nothing came of these negotiations. Another curious and timely piece of evidence is presented in the shape of an item purporting to be from the Parie "Gil Bias" of February H, 1918. That paper on this ?bite is said to have published the following: "A newspaper of Lastern Prance has levealed a highly interesting piece of, ? news. In military circles there it is related that large stocks of British i , ammunition have for several weeks been brought into Maubeuge, near the northeastern frontier of Prance, on the railway line from Tans to Cologne. The City of Maubeuge is of great mili? tary importance It is designated in the Fren? h Genera! Staff's plan of campaign as the concentration point ; for the allied troops, which ?.?'ill he t commanded, in case of a war, by the English field marshal, Sir.loi.:. French,] under General J offre, as commander in einer". Ii is well known that British cannon tire a different projectiie from those of France. The two govern? ments, how?-ver. have reached an agreement to accumulate on French. territory in time of peace th?? neces? sary war supplies of ammunition for the British artillery." France Promised Support. That Sir Edward Gr? y, th? Bi Foreign Secretary, had substantially agree?! to give France military support in the event of a war with Germany is also regarded in German circles as proved by the notes of the French and | British Foreign Minister* which were read in the British Parliament and in the French Embassy about the middle of August. Dispatches announcing that (?rea* i Britain had held up neutral Nether? lands ships and taken from them Ger | man reserves, and that she had also taken German mails, from neutral ships have caused much bitter comment in , Germany. In respect to the arrest and detention Of the 400 German reserves who were on their way home from New | York on the Dutch liner Noordam, it is i asserted here that Great Britain's act is a flagrant violation of the Declara? tion of London. Seizure of Mail Alleged. In regard to the seizure of German mails, it is also contended that this was contrary to the Hague Convention of 1907, which declares that the mails of a belligerent state carried on neutral vessels are inviolable. But this does not end the chapter of complaints against Great Britain. Still another grievance is that on August 1, ? three days before Great Britain's dec? laration of war, the British authorities , at Port Said detained the German steamer Dufrlinger and removed parts ? of her machinery, so that she could not proceed; in some case-, too. *he wire? less apparatus of German -hips was re? moved and sent ashore. All this oc? curred. German officials point out. con? trary to the neutral character of the | Suez (anal, stipulated in treaties, and j on which Great Britain largely baaed i its action in the Panama Canal nego? tiations with the United States.
