HUNS FEÄ8 NEGROES Offer Reward for Each Colored Soldier Captured. Now Attract Great Attention in Occu pied Sections of Germany. With the American Army of Occu pation.—Wherever American negroes have appeared in the area occupied by the Americans they have attracted great attention among the civilians. In Treves, Coblenz and other places, during tne early days ot the occupa tion, crowds assembled wherever any negro soldiers stopped in the streets, and it was necessary for the military police to enforce the orders prohibit ing gatherings in the public thorough fares. Even yet in Coblenz and Treves, where there are a number of negro soldiers, the negroes attract crowds of German children every time they ap pear in the streets. The German soldier also regards the negro with great curiosity. According to a discharged German soldier in Rengsdorf, the German array, early in the war, offered a reward of 400 marks for the capture alive of each negro. The discharged German soldier said that throughout the war German soldiers lived in great fear, and even terror, of the negroes, and it was in order to overcome this fear that re wards were offered. One evening on the front a scouting party, consisting of ten Germans, in cluding the discharged soldier, encoun tered two French negroes. In a fight which followed one of the negroes es caped, the other being taken prisoner. In the fight two of the Germans left their comrades and ran to the protec tion of their own trenches, but these, It was explained, were young soldiers and unttalned. The reward of 400 marks subsequently was divided among the remaining six Germans for capturing the French negro. Kills Big Eagle.
