BRUSSELS (By Mall). Iu a for-
mal note addressed to the Belgian;
government, the Belgian Federation j
ot Contractors charges Germany j
with perfecting a gigantic system of
dumping. This la declared to be at)4.
formidable that no Industry outside
of Germany can fight against It un
less determined and rapid action il
taken al once.
It la further charged that the
whole financial power of the German
Btato hag hmi uiaced at the disposal
of German industry, enabling fler
jnan firms to grant the most liberal
kind of terms in the wuy of long
time credits. This Is protection the
Belgian contractors declare.
This Incident arose between the
Belgian government and the Belgian
Federation of Contractors, when the
government recently acoepted a Ger
man proposal to' supply rolling stock
for the Belgian State Railways.
Incorporated In the protest is a de
nunciation of governmental policy la

ent saving of 18,000,000 franc when,
it is declared, Belgium will lu' the
long run stand to lose 21,000,000
francs by reason of unemployment
and so forth
The protest declares It Is a false
policy to consider solely and wholly
the mere question of lowness nf price
and quickness of delivery and makes
a plea for governmental assistance
for strictly national industries, now
suffering from scarcity of foreign
orders, thereby making local busl-
ness afl the more valuable.
By awarding governmental orders
to a foreign cotintry, the protest
points out, Belgium is deprived nf a
valuable source of revenue at a time
when it is badly needed.
