Berlin Paper Says Neutrality Laws
Work to Disadvantage of Germany
BBRIJN (Via liondon). Dec. l.-The
statement of the American ainliassador,
James W. Gerard, regarding contra
band la generally reprmted In the ( ter
ms, n press. The Krsuse Zeltung says
that no objection ran be raised to the
standpoint taken, which Is thoroughly
objective and comprehensive.
Count Ernest von Reventlbw, In the
Tages Keltung. finds the American stand
point technically correct, but argues that
such shipments whereby only the allies
benefit and which constantly strengthen
the military effort directed against Ger
many actually work out in practice as
a support of one belligerent to the detri
ment of another and in a way are con
trary to the spirit of neutrality, lie
make the suggestion that the American
government use the weight ef its au
thority In Iondon to Insure the delivery
of such supplies to Orrmany and Its al
lies. He klso says that the United States
will be able to demonstrate by such a
practical policy Indubitably that Its' neu
trality Is loysl.
WASHINGTON. Dec. l.-In reply to
Count von Reventlow's contention that
the American position on the declaration
of London was in a way contrary to the
spirit of neutrality and actually worked
to the benefit of the allies. State depart
ment officials take the view that no
other way seemed to be open to the
United Stslea in Its efforts to observe
neutrality than to take the stand It did,
as outlined in Ambassador Gerard" offi
cial statement, which declared that the
United SUtes "will Insist that Its rights
and duties and those of Its rltlsens In
the present war be defined by the ei lut
ing rules of international law and the
trestles of the United mates With the
belligerents Independently of the declara
tion of liondon."
If the stand of the United States works
as Count von It vent low argues, to
strengthen the allies. State department
officials point out that Is due solely to
Germany's position, which makes It dif
ficult for it to benefit from shipments
from the United States.
