ARRESTED AS SPY WHILE BERLIN. Robertson Paul Marched Throu Streets Escorted by the Military. During his stay in Berlin just ter the outbreak of hostilities John Robertsou 'Paul, of Chariest who is a Rhodes scholar at Oxfo was arrested on suspicion of bei a spy and marched through i streets of the German capital w military escort. .Mr. Paul convint the military and police authorit that he was an American, taking 1 dak pictures for his pleasure, a was released after considera time. Mt. Paul has written of t and other incidents falling under personal observation in the folic ing very interesting article: By this time it is probable tl American publications will have be adequately supplied with descr tions of the characteristic street a traveling scenes occuring just af the outbreak of hostilities in the i portant centres of the countries n eneaeed in the eeneral Europe war. I shall accordingly not det; you by repetitions of them, but v refer as briefly as I may to my o impressions of the state of the pi lie feeling of Germany and to c experience of my own in that coi try. Germans Realize the Cost, It has been argued that the nu of German people were decidec averse to war. and that they w< only forced into it by the lead< of the military class. It is undou edlv true that the German nati was deeply depressed by the reali: tion that they were facing the m< terrible war of history. But I there ever been a country whose p< pie welcomed the coming of the finite tragedies inevitably attends upon war? Every German fam realized only too truly just how : tally doomed was the happiness their individual household. War the concrete could mean little but si row and financial ruin to the gn body of the German population. T1 much is true. But rightly or wror ly?for it would be futfle to atten to review here the causes which i tions advance to justify their par cipation in this war?Germany convinced of the greatness of t cause. The general public of Berlin 1 lieves in all sincerity that the pri ^ ent war, was as far as the Fath< land was concerned, absolutely inev able. The kaiser, it was stated, h done all in his power to prevent by yielding to the "peace" telegrai v -Of the Czar, and prohibiting G< many from any active movemc looking to war up to the very n ment when it became evident fr( Russia's mobilizing her army agaii the German frontier that the Ri sian bear, after approaching I: very threshold beneath the wh mantle of pretended peace had last thrown off its ill-becoming d guise and was even now scowling war threats at her doors. France, it was known, has e\ since the last war been longing i the opportunity to fight her unf< given foe of 1870. The two nes neighbors of Austria and Germai France and Russia, were her deac enemies and were now attempti to crush the fine old Teutonic ra and civilization between the horc of the Slavs and the efficient mi . tary machine of the Celts. Serv which Germany rightfully or wror fully regarded as the mere catsp. and pretext for Russia, and Montei gro, were of course, allied to t Slav combination, and Belgiu caught between the mighty forces the opposing powers, declared w in self-defence against the first a gressor, which happened to be G< many. Then, too, England and ? pan unexpectedly joined the for< of her enemies, nroducing as hetei geneous a racial combination as * ever known to history?all, felt G< many, for a share of the spoils. Whatever we may think of t causes?and it is a sad comments upon Europe's fondness or even : spect for the truth, that every i tion proves not only to man but a. to the Almighty that there is on < nying that its cause is just a praiseworthy and its enemies fa and execrable?still, surely, the ta before the German was of such : palling magnitude as to stir his T( tonic soul to its depths and to aroi an enthusiasm that was in a fi sense heroic. Every German fam might be heart-broken, but eve German individual was burning w: eagerness to do his or her share 1 their country's sake. System works hauitiessiv. / The manner with which this s; tern of patriotism was practically ; plied was simply perfect. Ambas: dor Gerard, speaking in the to hall of Berlin, said that he had he amazed by the spectacle of a srr< nation sending her armies forth war against seven powers with 1< / nc ! confusion than had attended the W suing of passports in his own offic ! But. aga'n, an adequate descripti ! cannot be attempted in these f j words. Suffice it to say that eve: I where there was large bodies igh! troops being moved without t lightest delay or confusion; tl everywhere mat i traveled i pass long trains of supplies of artille of Red Cross apparatus, in short ; every requirement of a great army ! all in absolute order down to t on, I , 1 most minute detail: and that eve ' man, woman or child in the count :he seen-e(* intent on the intelligent pi ith Iorniance oi some service for t ^ benefit of the common cause. Ies It cannot leave the subject of t state of the public feeling of G< :o- , nd many without expressing a heartf ble appreciation of the kindness a his C0UrtesJ" universally extended . . Americans who happened to be nis that country at the outbreak of t >wwar. I am aware that the constri tat tion put upon in EnSland is it was for "political purposes onl: k0n . Having found the English a genuii ^ lv fair-minded nation in sport a t having a real respect for their spi of fair play in athletics, I must z mmit that I cannot believe them s; ow cere in this criticism of their enen !aD Surely both England and Germa im ,.jj clearly understand that Americi position is one of absolute neutral; wn . . and that we are not quite such fo< in as to rush blindly into Europe's cai age and grope with her history o\ tragedy's prejudice merely becau a few of us have been kindly terate "But," say the English, "though t iss Germans didn't actually expect alliance, they at least were strivi ire to gain your friendship." Granti 5rs that they were, why are we ever cc k*" siderate of other nations? First, 1 on cause of sincere human kindne za~ and second, because any se'If-respe* 351 ing people desire that others shou ias have a proper regard for them f?" which I must confess I consider m" perfectly legitimate motive. int Befriended by Countess. This latter was the probable re fason for the government propagan in favor of Americans in Germar ln but the generous attentions whi 3r~ we received at the hands of the pa pie everywhere must be attribut 31S to even more disinterested feelinj Lg" Upon arrival in Berlin an Austri; widow guessing our dilemma, dire* l*~ ed us to a delightful stopping pla< _ where everything possible was do 1S for us. A German countess to who ier she introduced us was more th; kind to us, even to the point of wr )e" ing our letters in German (as w 3S~ required by the government.) l interesting Russian case came und lt_ our notice here, ad A professor of the University n Petersburg and his son were stc ms ping at the same place. The fath sr" was left entirely unmolested, but t int son was taken off to be detained f l0~ a time as a prisoner, as he was jii )m of fighting age. . The father w lst greatly distressed, as the son w IS" qu'.te unwell and, in fact, had cor lei to Berlin for treatment. As soi ifp as the countess learned the fac a she at once wrote a letter to the a |s_ thorities in his behalf. The son w lts examined by German army phvi cians. The statements of the pr ,er fessor were found to be quite tr or and his boy was at once set at li 5r" erty. From German Yie\vi>oint. 1J' These are mere incidents of whi llv * I might relate any number. In vu ng of the fact that one never reads an ice thing but unkindness, nay even br 'es tality. of Germany in the newspape of her enemies, and that I nev 4r% ' saw or experienced anything but t lg~ reverse in Germany, for^the sake IV> our sense of cosmopolitan fair pig ie~ perhaps this reference may not out of place. I must, of course, lin m' the applications of these remarks of as not to include the actual fightii ar zone, as of this I am not qualified lg~ speak. er~ I candidly do not believe that t fa" thinking part of the English peop :es give credence to the extravaganc ro" which flood their press. In any evei o g at a time when seven powers we er- . . denouncing uermany as me euei. of the human race," when she w hp desperately busy with the tern Lrj task before her; when, in short, o re" might naturally expect a display ia" only the rougher and less de'lica lso feelings, during all this time, t great heart of her friendly peop nd could still beat in sympathy with t *se Americans who were- so unfortuna sk as to be caught there in time of wj ip~ Germany, on the eve of inexpressit 'u~ suffering, could find time to lame ICO our momentary inconvenience ai ne in the midst of infinite labor to pi ilv vide for our every want. This, ;r-v consider an honor to a nation's cht acter and an attitude which I con :0r not conscientiously pass by wit'no reference. Under Suspicion. ys- The one personal experience of r ip- own which may be of some passi sa- interest is the occasion of my am wn under suspicion as a spy ir.

As usual, I had my kodak with me on j for there were of course, some inter ew esting views to be gotten. SJudden ry-1 ly I was accosted by two soldier of j and thereupon ensued a prolonge< he! linguistic effort, conducted withou latj singular enlightenment of either par ;ed ty principally by means of the hand ry,! and shoulders. A German officer canu of j up, and stating that he could speal ? I any of the European languages he j kindly offered to arrange matter fry i for me. Whereupon I explainei try ] that 1 was "just a little more at honn er-! in English than the other lan be j guages," and promptly replied tha t I was averse to accepting his help, he When, however, it appeared tha sr- I had no passports, for the embass; eH had been so crowded during tin nd morning that I had decided to returi to for them in the late afternoon, h< in at once informed me that all hi he could offer me was sympathy, fo jc- naturally he had no power to removi lat any one without passports from th< military authorities. I was thei ie- marched between soldiers to a guar< nd room at Brandenbureer Thor. whjcl rit is in the heart of the German capi id- tal.
