TRY MRS. HIRSCH
FOR BLACKMAIL
(Continued From Page 1.)
Amsterdam, Wednesday March 14.
Some sections of ths German press are
becoming uneasy over developments in
the far esst.
The Frankfurter Zeltung considers
that the breaking up of Russia Into a
number of Independent states is a bad
policy for Germany, and urges that the
greatest tact and prudence be used in
dealing with th border states so that
they will not "in the future sigh for a
reunion with Russia and become so
many thorns in Germany's side." The
newapaper adds: .
"Clearly the entente policy Is to use
th Japanese alliance to shove Ger
many out of Asiatic markets forever.
Germany played their game by break
ing up Russia. Germany now has no
more hope than ever of being able to
conduct a far eastern policy, except in
conjunction with Great Britain ana
Russia, That is why a weak Russia
will not contribute to Germany's ulti
mate walfare."
' Not Most Profitabl Way,
Capt. Von Salzmann, the military
crltio of the Vosslsche Zeltung, writes:
"Germany too late began to realise
that the time might come when the
United States and Japan would see
that war Is not always the most profit
able way of settling differences. Ger
many's Russian policy has played the
game brilliantly for Great Britain and
the United States. In the ame wsy
Germany has Increased Holland's debt
of gratitude to Great Britain.
"It should have been Germany s
game to earn Holland's gratitude by
guaranteeing her the safe possession
of her East Indian colonies, but instead
of this she cementea me Angio-jap-anese
alliance and delivered tha Dutch
colonies from Japanese pressure south
ward by opening the door to Japanese
enterprises in Russia.
Sses No Advantage.
"Only the most limited Intelligence
can believe that the break-up of Rus
sia will be t Germany's advantage.
The true results of Germany's Russian
policy already are patent in the lessen
ing of th Anglo-Japanese alliance and
the consequent security of th Anglo
Indian and Australian colonial posses7
8lons, as well as the Dutch and French
colonies in southeast Asia. The conse
quences are that Germany again finds
herself without friends in th world,
while Great Britain laughs In the back
ground." SWISS FEDERAL COUNCIL
DISCUSSES NEUTRALITY
Report of American Troops on
Frontier Made to the
Assembly.
Berne, Tuesday, March 12. Th
Swiss federal counoil at a meeting last
night discussed a report on measures
of neutrality which dealt with th rec
ognition of Swiss neutrality by bellig
erent powers, Th report statsd that
th declaration mad by th United
State should b called for by th
council, which has learned of th
presence of American troops on th
Swiss frontier. Switierland, it is
added, attaches th highest ImpoKane
to its neutrality being recognized un
conditionally. ,
The Swiss mission to th United
States and its fortunate results also
were mentioned in the report.
President Callonder said hs was sur
prised at the declaration concerning
Swiss neutrality made by the United
States, France and Great Britain. He
said thnt the federal council In Its re
ply had formally protested, insisting
that if the neutrality . of Switierland
were violated It would b the duty of
Switzerland to defend It, and such was
the only conception in conformity with
Swiss treaties.
On Friendliest Trm.
"We refuse," said the president "to
be under the protection of powers
which guarantee our neutrality. We
wish, In case of Invasion, to freely con
clude an alliance with them, and If the
case arises, to call to our help the
powers which signed th treaties of

"We have every reason to bellev
that their declaration was not Intended
materially to Injure our neutrality and

them." . .
