GERMAN CITIZENS
AID SPIES, CHARGE
die Pennsylvania nnd New Jersey, In
hts talk on "Pro-Germanism" before this1
week's luncheon of tho notary Club, to
day nt the Adelphla Hotel.
"It Is the Oernian alien," he told the
Ilotarlans, "that Is mostly spreading
this false propaganda. For more than
forty years Oermany has had her spies
In every country of the world. Within
Jour neighborhood, or near your work-
, lag place. If you hear a German or
' alien enemy make a pro-German re-
mark, or a disloyal statement against
mm ivunu), miw n i may no
i your friend, report him to mo and we
. will take care of him.
. "We have a strong army and navy
and we are going to keep It strong, ho
It can go to France and then straight
to Berlin. Any saloonkeeper or boot
legger that is intentionally wiling liquor
to a man In uniform is doing a pro
German act, And It Is our duty to re
port and take care of such."
"You will wonder why the Department
or Justice does not Intern alien enemies.
We are not a nation of barbarians, We
want to leave a mark upon this world
that we are fighting a war for hu
manity, Therefore, If any enemy alien
maintaining a neutral attitude, there
ls no reason for his Internment. If
Germany will ask us why we Interned
Fischer, our answer Is that we 'got the
goods' on him."
