Country Is Aroused Because of Attack
on Steamer by Torpedo Boat—News
paper Asks What the British Fleet
Is Doing
The Hague, Feb. 5.—Dutch newspapers, both pro
German and anti-German, are unanimous in demanding
from Germany prompt explanation and reparation for tor
pedoing of the Dutch tank steamer Artemis by a German
torpedo boat in the North sea. The newspapers call for
the punishment of the German commander responsible
for what is described as violation of law and an unjusti
fiable act of war against The Netherlands.
The Yanderland recalls previous German errors and
dwells on the danger of further incidents of this nature.
Incidentally, it asks what the British fleet is doing while
the conspicuously concealed German torpedo boat flotilla j
»etwoen the Hook of Holland and!
is calmlv
eI'll 1 SI Ilg
Noordhinder Lightship.
The Nieuwe Courant treats the case as a breakdown of
the vaunted German organization and discipline, which it.
says seems urgently in need of improvement, especially
from the viewpoint of the safety of lives and property of
lient nils.
