GERMANY WILL COM
FOH FREE SEA III FUTURE
Will Never Relinquish Belgium Until
Guaranteed Access to
All Ports.
LETTER FROM 1)R. DERX11URQ
Also Urges Joint Ownership of Cables
and World Mall System?Regard
ed as Kaiser's Demands for
Peace.
TSpecial to The Tlmes-Dlspntch. ]
PORTLAND, ME., April 17.?Ger
many will never relinquish Belgium
until she Is guaranteed a free ?ea and
fro? access to nil Belgian ports. So
declared Dr. Bernhard Dornburg. term
or Colonial Secretary of the German
empire, 1n a letter rend at a nmss
meetlng here to-night.
The letter, apparently inspired, puts
forth what may be taken ns Germany's
demands in order that pence may bo
restored.
Dr. Dernburg nlso urgos Joint owner
ship of cables and a world mall ayBtem,
ns logical outgrowths of a free sea.
He goes so far ns to recommend the
neutralization of the waters of the
seven seas and tho nnrrows theroof.
His letter reads:
"I can with full authority disclaim
any ambition for my country for world
dominion. Slu> is much too modest, on
the one hand, and too experienced, on
the other, not to know that such a
state will never bo tolerated by tho
rest. Tho aim of Oermnny Is to have
the seas as well as the narrows kept
permanently open for the free use of
all nations, In tlmos of war as well as
in times of peace. I personally would
oven go as far as to neutralize all
the peas and nnrrows permanently by
a common and effective agreement,
guaranteed by all tho powers.
"A free eea Is useless, except oom
blned with freedom of cable and mail
communication. I should like to seo
all the cables Jointly owned by the
interested nations, and a world mall
system over sea established by com
mon consent.
"Tho only alternative to an open
son and free intercourse policy would
he a Chinese wall around each coun
try. If there Is no freo Intercourse,
every country must become self-suf
ficient. Germany has proved that it
can bo done. But this policy would
mean very high customs barriers, dis
crimination. unbounded egotism and a
world bristling in arms.
"Germany does not strive for terri
torial aggrandizement In Eurojw; s-lie
does not believe in conquering and
subjugating unwilling nations. Bel
gium commands the main outlet of
western Gorman, trade, is tho natural
foreland ol the empire, and has been
conquered with untold sacrllice of
blood and treasure. It offers to Ger
man trade the only outlet to an open
sea, and has l>o? n politically estab
lished. maintained and defended by
Kngland in order t<> keep these natural
advantages from Gerinany
"Tho love for small peoples that
Kngland heralds now will never stand
Investigation, as shown by the destruc
tion of the small lloer republics.
"So Belgium cannot be given up.
However, these considerations could be
disregarded if all lite other ilurnian
demands, especially a guaranteed free
sea, were fully complied '.villi, and the
natural commercial relat'<>ns of llel
giurn to Germany were considered in
a Just and workable form. In this
case, Germany will not fail when the
time comes to help rebuild the coun
try. in fact, she is doing so now.
"A permanent peace will mean that
German activity nilist ?ret a wide scope
without Infringement upon the rights
of others."

What the People Say
Dr. Joa. A. White:
"While my bill for gas, it is true, is not large,
yet I have interest enough In the gas subject to
earnestly favor any proposition made to the city
which will tend to the city's advantage. If the
offers made by the Southern Gas and Electric
Corporation to the City Council to lease the gas
plant mean better service and would be to the
city's general financial advantage to accept one
of these propositions, T am heartily in favor of it.
I think it ia the general opinion that the gas
works are utilized too much in city politics, and
it would be a good thing if it were entirely di
vorced from politics. If the propositions made
by the Southern Gas and Electric Corporation
are sound, there is no reason why (he voters
should not accept one or the other of them."
T. G. WALKER:
"Something ought to be done at once to rem
edy gas conditions in Richmond. The Gas and
Water Departments seem to be permeated with
grafters, and it would be a good thing to get rid
of them. We cannot reasonably expect any im
provement under the present system. I am
heartily in favor of accepting the offer of the
Southern Gas and Electric Corporation. We
only use gas for cooking at our home.
"Pets are sometimes expensive, but we like
them so we can fondle them ourselves without
others butting in? You have done us good in
many ways, and I would be in favor of donating
or paying all your expenses in this fight. It will
be worth the cost?but to give up our pet never."
