cerptiil from them reort of atroci
ties under the title "Letter of tho
Hun." Many of the lender In thu
rclchktnj; felt very keenly the brutality
of the emperor' speech. The obnox
ious word "IIiiiih" bud excited nlmost
universal couilemmitlon. When Hm
relchslnif met, In November, the speech
wn openly discussed. Ilerr I.leber of
the center (Ctilholle pnrty), nfter quot
ItiK the "no mercy" Hirtlon of tho
peirh, lidded, "There nre, nln. In Ocr
many Krotip ciioukIi who have regard
ed the atrocities told In thu letter
which have been published n the duti
ful response of soldier nddrcncl
and cnrouniKcd." The lender of the
Kinl demncrnt. Ilerr Itebel, pokc
even more pointedly. Toward tho end
of it t uo-hour nddre on the atrocities
committed by Hm Herman soldier In
China nnd on the speech of tho cm
furor, he snld :
"If Oertnnny wishes to be tho bearer
of cIvlllKfltlon to the world, we will
follow without contradiction. Hut the

which It hn been defined by the em

the wny to preserve the world position

The consequence of Hm emperor'
speech llebel nptly described:
"Ily It the nIkiiiiI wn kIvcii. curbed
In the lilKhest authority of the Herman
empire, which must have most weighty
consequences, not only for the troop
who went to China but also for thono
who stayed nt home. An expedition
nf revenue so burhnrnu it thl ha
never occurred In the Inst hundred
year and not orten in history; nt

pened In history, either done by Hm
IIiiiih, by the Vandals, by OciikIiI
Khun, by Tumerhine, or even by Tilly
when lie sacked MiiKdchuri;."
Atrocities In China.
These atrocities In Clilnn or "Letters
of Dm IIiiiih" continued to bo published
In Hm Vorwaert for several year and
appeared Intermittently In the debutes
of Hm relchstiiK as late as 1IHM, At
that tliiio tho socialist, Ilerr Kunert,
reviewing the procedure In u trial of
which he bad been the victim In the
prelous summer, stated that ho had
offered to provo "that (leriumi soldier
In China had cupiKcd In wanton und
hriitul ruvuKlnu; Hint plunder, pIIIiiko,
extortion, robbery, un well as rape und
sexual abuses of tho worst kind, hud
occurred on u very lurRO ncnlo uud that
Oermaii soldiers hud participated In
them." He had not been kIvcii tin op
portunity to prove III ullcKUtlniis, but
hud been sentenced to prison for three
months for iissnlllnc the honor of the
"whole Oennun nnny." Tho out
rnireousues of thl sentence wn mmle
clear by tho revelations, mmle In the
