man Socialists have failed in an ef-
fort to negotiate a deal with the Nor-
wegian Socialists to supply them with
40,000 tons oPd German coal as pay-
ment for distribution of German prop-
aganda in Norway. The Germans de-
manded also that the Socialistic fac-
tion of the Storthing, seek to modify
the agreement for exporting of Nor-
wegian fish to Great 'Britain so as to
increase the amount of fish sent to
A plan similar to this was success-
fully negotiated by the German So-
cialists in Denmark and, it is claimed,
that the Germans induced in that way
they Danish Socialists, their press and
representative in the Danish cabinet
to take a pro-German attitude. ;
Wilhelm Jansson, leader of a So-,
cialistic press bureau in Berlin was
sent to Norway to put the deal
through here. The Norwegian Social-
istia leaders rejected the proposition
although the German agent made re-
peated efforts to bring them to his
terms. It is claimed that Jansson rep-
resented the Imperial German author-
ities in attempting to .obtain social-
istic support for Germany in Norway.
