"I found In Dcrlln the cold, metallic,

Germany Superior to Britain ir
Care of Prisoners.
Unheated Shelters, Bad Sanitary An
rangements and Insufficient Food
Found In England All Treat
ed Alike In Germany.
Frankfort. A Gorman recently re
leased from tho British prison camp
at Newbury, whero he was Interned
for three months, hns been Investigat
ing German camps. Ho compares
conditions as ho found them in New
bury with conditions In tho typical
German camp at Ituhlebont near Ber
lin. In nrrangementB for shelter, ex
ercise, sanitation and tho food supply
ho found the German camps superior
to tho British. Ills-report 1b published
In tho Frankfort Gazette, as follows:
In tho Gorman camp at Ruhleben
there 1b ample space for tho prisoners
to movo nbout. Tho.cnmp is located
on a former raco course, and tho
Bpaco bohlnd tho main pavilion and
tho Btnblcs is at tho freo disposal of
tho interned. They aro allowed to
tnko their exercises on the course It-
Belf for a couple of hours a day.
In tho British camp at Nowbury
there aro about 4,000 prisoners In
terned. Two-thirds woro sholtored In
tents, tho remainder in tho small
stablcB of the hurdlo race. Only In
tho spneo between tho tents or tho
stables was exerclao permitted. Tho
wallB of tho stablea cut off all view
of the pleasant Burroundlng country.
Always wo had tho same picture bo
foro our oyes hundreds of people
grown dull and apathetic by tho un
certainty of their fate, moving around
in tho samo small circle.
When rain or fog set In, as It does
almost dally during tho English win-
tor, It wa8 impossible to leavo the
tonta and stables. Tho clay soil was
soaked through, and tho dirt was sev
eral Inches .deep. Great pools of wa
ter caused noxious mlasmaa. Some
times theao poola wero so largo that
thoy barred tho passago entirely. j
When Prime. Minister Asqulth and
Mrs. Asqulth paid a visit to tho camp
a Bailor put a stick In tho mlro bear
ing a placard, "FiBhlng Prohibited
Here." Then ho sat on a bench he
had constructed and waited, holding
an improvised fishing rod in his hand,
until tho primo minister passed tho
spot. Mr. Aaquith shot a furtlvo
glance at tho commandant of tho
camp, who accompanied him. Next
morning tho fisherman was removed
to tho Islo of Man.
Day by day tho administration
sought to Improve tho systora of drain
ngo, but overy tlmo tho thick mlro
choked it again.
On tho contrary, ,tho cleanliness In
tho Gorman camp at Ruhleben is
worth emphasizing. Tho samo room
that serves for nlno or ton people In
tho EnglUh campB Bervea for five or
bIx neoplo at Ituhlobon. Not a slnglo
tablo nor a single chair waa provided
by tho EngllBh government during tho
tlmo of my internment. Trunks were
used na seats; other pieces of luggage
served as tables. Two things havo
boon arranged at Ituhleben which
woro entirely lacking in tho English
campB covered alloys whero tho
prisoners can stay when tho weather
la bad and Bteam heating In all tho
Tho food which 1b given to tho pris
oners In England ia not bad. Tho
allowance however, Is not sufficient
for adulta.
Tho food In tho German campB can
bo called ample. Tho treatment of all
prlsonora at tho German camp 1b tho
Bamo. Tho EnglUh mllllonalro haa no
moro right then tho negro. Prlvato
food la allowed, but only in oxcoptlon
al cases.
In tho English camps money Is tho
moBt Important thing. Ho who la
fortunnto onough to havo mouoy can
got whatever ho IUcob it ho la on good
tenna with tho sergeant major, tho
representative of tho commandant.
Thla official Is particularly fond of
good clgara and English pounds. Ev

amiable man would havo all tho money
