The German propaganda is operatedi
in a score of ways, but the chief meth-
od is the presentation of the German,
viewpoint and German news in the
papers, but because it is clumsy it
is vastly less effective than the out-
lay should warrant. In brief, Ger-
many has tried and is trying to in-
fluence Swiss public opinion as if
the Swiss people could - clearly under-
stand the German way of thinking. ;
Germans Acquire Papers;
As the basis of its propaganda work
here, Germany acquired a number ofj
newspapers in Switzerland-several in
the German language and one pub-
lished in French, the latter now un-
der suspension. Similarly, the "Swiss"
papers in the German language area
quite as obviously German as the Ber-
lin Lokal Anzeiger or the Cologne Ga-
zette except that they are immeasura-
bly less able.
Then the Germans acquired or start-
ed a whole series of news agencies
through which to distribute their
news. Soon, however, these. agen-
cies added another and vastly more
important function, that of collecting
and transmitting news from countries
at war with Germany-news, however,
carefully colored if not actually dis-'
torted. It was in this direction that
the German propaganda began to be
"Swiss" Agencies Give Colored News
While German newspaper men them-
selves could only roost along the Ital-
ian border at Lugano, and the French
at Geneva, and transmit colored news
from Italian and French newspapers
to Germany, the neutral Swiss corre-
spondents of the so-called "Swiss"
agencies had free access to Italy and
France. They carefully chose all the
misleading, even though technically
accurate, news they could squeeze by
of the censor. If a sensational and
uninfluential deputy in the French or
Italian chamber makes an attack on
the government, it is faithfully flash-
ed to Switzerland; if a score of women
in Rome throw stones during a pro-
test meeting. Switzerland hears of
the "rioting" that is gravely menacing
the established order in Italy.
With America's entry into the war
the agencies went a step farther and
rendered another important vervice to
Germany, for some of them began to
send, both to Switzerland and to Ger-
many, distorted news from the United
States. Again and again the reliable,
the genuinely Swiss journals, issued
denials or published the correct news,
The first effect was not to be corrected
by later stories.

tained by the navy department from
Captain Haldor Smith of the American
schooner R. C. Slade, and three other
mariners who landed at Tutuila in an
open boat, Sept. 29, after being ma-
rooned on Mopeha Island by the mas-
ter of the Seeadler when the raider
grounded and was abandoned.
The Seeadler, formerly the Ameri-
can ship Pass of Balmaha, belonged to
the Boston Lumber company and was
in the Nova Scotia trade before the
war. After the war broke out, she
was put under the American flag. She
was captured by the British and a
prize officer was put aboard her with
instructions to take her to Kirkwall,
Scotland. On the way, she was cap-
tured by a German submarine and sent
to , Bremen, where she was fitted out
as a raider. A picked crew was placed
aboard, some of whom spoke Norwe-
gian, and the vessel was sent out in-
to the Atlantic under the guise of a
Seeadler Stopped By British
The ruse worked so well that, after
leaving Bremen on Dec. 21, 1916, the
Seeadler was held up by the British
auxiliary cruiser, Highland Scot, ex-
amined and passed. 'Sailors' identifi-
cation books issued by the Norwegian
government were furnished the men,
alhtough they probab ywere taken
from captured Norwegian vessels and
given to men who seemed to ft the
descriptions given. These, together
with pictures of Norwegian kings and
queens gave hte ship the appearance
of a Norwegian.
Captain Smith learned that, while
cruising in the Atlantic, 13 ships valued
by the Germans at 60,000,000 marks
were captured, and also four in the
Pacific, the R. C. Slade, the American
schooner, A. B. Johnson, the American
schooner Manila, and the French

"I left Sydney on April 24, 1917, and
proceeded without any incident until
the evening of June 17, when I was in
latitude about two north and longitude
150 west. On the evening of June 17,
about 5 o'clock, the second mate re-
about 5 o'clock, the second mate report-
I went on deck and looked aft, and in-
stantly, as I came on deck, they fired
again, and I saw the shell fall short
about two miles. She was about eight
miles off. There was a heavy squall
starting to eastward-wind favorable
to this time-and, as I thought it pos-
sible to get away, I kept holding on.
But she kept firing on me at inter-
vals of about five to- 10 minutes, and
was coming up on me fast.
Ninth Shot Comes Close
"The ninth shot, fired about six o'-
clock, struck very close, passing the
poop and splashing the water on the
ship. Then I concluded that there
wasn't any use, and I lowered down
spanker, clewed down topsail, hoisted
the American flag, and hove to. About
seven o'clock the raider was up along-
side and asked what ship. I told him
what it was, and he told me to lower
down sails, and stand by, and that he
would send an officer aboard me.
Shortly after, the prize officer came
aboard with a doctor and 10 men.
These officers were in uniform. They
told me to leave the ship and to go
on board the raider, and that they
would give me time in tfhe morning
to pack my clothes.
"They took all our men aboard the
raider except the cok. Next morning
I went back on board with all my
men and packed up. We left the ship
with our belongings, June 18. We were
put on board the raider again. Short-
ly after I saw from the raider that
they had cut holes in the masts, plac-
ed dynamite bombs in each mast, pu
fire to both ends of the ship, and lefi
her. I saw the masts go over the side
and the ship was burning from end te
end, as the raider steamed away."
