Lewis "and the method of payment art

many from getting aid from any country
other than her creditors thus keeping
Germany in increasing 6bt to the Eu-

added are seeking "to trick the United

mercial ships sufficient to driva America

powerful enough to prevent America re-

Colonel X began: 'The Irish republi-
can army dots the entire country. Our
plan is to account for every district
either by battalions or companies; every
foot of ground is being surveyed and
studied with reference to the most prom-
ising spots for ambushes and with re-
gard to the disposition of the cron
forces. The siae of our forces varies
according to the natnre of the country
and the number and character of the in-
habitants. County Heath for instance

"The tendency though." he continued
"is to operate in smaller units in areas
like Ulster where certain districts are
either too thinly peopled or the popula-
tion is hostile. We have only small
group engaged in reconnaissance and in-
telligence work. In some areas where
conditions are wholly favorable the com-
panies are formed . into battalions and
brigades. This is our regular army. The
men on the run are somewhat similarly
organised but in small units. They work
in conjunction with the 'rigs' and are
kept well armed clothed and equipped.
But the vast bulk of our men are not on
the run; they are available for operations
in the daylight others at night time."
Questioned as to who directed the at
tacks. Colonel X replied: "If it be an
operation requiring a large number of t

It ia alto asserted that because of the
restrictions placed upon Germany from
whom the allies 'have already collected
$4000000000 of indemnity it should be
infintely easier for the allies to meet
their debt to America than for Germany
to pay the allies claims against her. It
ia estimated tbat if iiermany is actually
required to pay the indemnity prescribed
pins tbe 12 per cent export tax to the
allies the total amount of Germany's in-
demnity in 42 years will exceed 500000-
000.000 gold marks. It is deemed ridic-
ulous gauging the allies' capacity to pay
by tbeir expectation based on their esti-
mates of Germany's meeting the allies'
claims that England or any other of the
allied nations should appeal on economic
or any other grounds to this country to
cancel their debta to the United States.
It is the. opinion of experts here that
it would not be as difficult for England
alone to liquidate all the allies' debts to
the United States as it would be for Ger-
many to meet the claims of the allies
against her. Tbe allies' total indebted-
ness to America it is pointed out is
about one-third of the amount of tbe in-
demnity they are demanding from Ger-
many exclusive of the 12 per cent ex-
