German Foreign Office, carries
the title, "The conduct by the
Belgians of a National War

and comprises {j2 quarto pages,
or about 140 newspaper columns
The report isdivided into five
neatly separated rubrics. First
and this is the real -ist of the
work -comes a generalized pro-
nouncement <>f the German
point of view, which is that the
Belgians invariably sinned
against the rules of the Geneva
Convention of July 6, 1906, by
carrying on a deliberately
planned guerrilla warfare,
.jjfl'his fust part of the German
JWci;i\ reply is translated fully

serves no other comment than to
have its earnest ntSS mentioned,
But no fewer than forty pag< s
11I individual depositions follow
this first partthe sworn and
[officially recorded statements of
regimental commanders before
la variety of German tribunals,
[civil, criminal, and military.
So much for the fn>l part of
the German official report. The
four other sections contain an
anthology of the best of ihede
positions which make for the
cause ol Teutonic innocency
while Germany's interminable

Insurrection m Lowen, from

Each one of these rubrics is
pieceded by a "comprehensive
survey" of the issues involved.
Then come long records of the

struggles against the German
troops were participated in by
the Belgian civilian population
of every condition and ape and
of hotli sexes.
"These conflicts showed the
greatest bitterness and fury. An
overwhelming mass of evidence
is at hand to establish the proof
of this material gained from
official investigations, especial-
ly based upon sworn testimony
before a court or upon reports j
l ived from the front. A .
Iectiou from this material is pre
sented in five append ii es i nd
embraces only tlie more impoi
taut occurrences, l>ut tins evi-l
dence can at any time be in-
creased by further examples.

"According to this appended
material, the Belgian civil pop- i

"German troops were shot at in
districts fiom which the Belgian

treated. These shots came from
houses and gardens, from roof
tops and cellars, from fields and
U mm|s.
"In tin se battles materials

"After all is said and done,
thereis no doubt that in Belgium
the insurrection was carried on
not only by individual civilians
but by direct masses of the pop.

"The waging of war by the
Belgian civilian population a-
entirely incompatible with the
universally recognized rules of
international law, as they have
found expression in Articles i
