(Copyrighted, 1S39, by Associated Press)
BERLIN, 4t. .-Th outbreak of
war In the Trnnsvaai la regarded here
as a question of a few days or at the
most of a week. The whole press
devotes considerable space to the mat
ter. Neither the attitude of the people
nor of th. press has changed material
ly. Without exception they disapprove
of such war and blame Great Hiltaln
for badgering the Transvaal beyond
The liberal press also blames the
Transvaal for Its Illogical stand In first
sanctioning Great Britain's attempts
at Interference In Its Internal arrairs
and then rejecting such attempts and
making of them a casus belli.
