Germany dreamed not only
military but also commercial world
supremacy. XJjenshe wakes up to
what has realgpened she may
wish she had die to her sleep.
Before the war she controlled the
dye market, the potash supply.
treat exportatlons of sugar and coal
and of drugs and glass and fine
steel products. She possessed min
ing Interests in Australia and Amer
ica whence came much of the raw
material needed, for .the, manulae-
tures which were so important a
part of her foreign trade. . She own
ed factories, land and dock space ot
enormous value in the United States
Now where does she stand? She
has lost the dye market, and Ameri
ca not only makes her own dyes but
supplies Germany's former custo
mers. We make our own glass and
drugs. Potash - fields have been
found here, while the source of Ger
man supply in Alsace-Lorraine will
revert to France. Teuton-owned
property interests in this and other
countries have been confiscated and
sold. Probably the most cruel blow
to Germany Is the loss of the North
German Lloyd and Hamburg-American
docks in the United States, for
dock space In our Atlantic ports Is al
most unobtainable, and now Ger
many's cherished holdings are sold
to her competitors.
When Germany tries to re-enter
the commercial world, she will find
herself hated, her foreign holdings
Cone, the demand for her wares
greatly diminished and raw mater:
lals difficult to obtain. Countries
not otherwise averse to trading with
Iter will hesitate to do business on
anything but a cash basis, being sus
picious of her credit; and Germany,
addled with debts and war indem
altles, will not have much cash.
Truly a rude awakening from her
dream of empire, to appear a beggar
and despised when she had thought
to rule, but Germany had it coming.
