Organised Maaaarre of t llllan.
The most important findings of the
committee are summed up In the follow
ing conclusion nt the ciose of the report:
It is seen that the committee have come
to a definite conclusion upon each of
the head under which the evidence has
I cen elassilieo: (
It is proved:
First, that there were In many narts of
1 elglum deliberate and systematically
organized massacres of the civil popula
tion, accompanied by many Isolated
murderer and other outrages.
Second, that In the conduct of the war
generally Innocent cIvlllHnF, both men and
v.omen,' were murdered In largo num
bers, women violated and children
Third, that lootitiR. house burning and
I ne wanton destruction of property were
nidered and countenamed by the of
licers of the German army that elabor
ate provision had ln-en mad- ?i: system
atic Incendiarism at. the very outbreak
of the war, and that the burning and
destruction were f reipicntly where no
military necessity could be alleged, be
ing Indeed part of a system of general
ti i rorizatlon.
Fourth, that the rules and usages of
war were frequently broken, particularly
I v the using of civilians, including;
women and children, as a shield for ad
vancing forces exposed to fire, to a less
degree by killing the wounded and
prisoners, ami In the frequent abuse of
the Red 'Cross and the white flag.
I'nrqnalled for Centuries.
"Sensible as they are of the gravity of
these conclusions, the committee con
ceive that they would be doing less than
their duty if they failed to record them
as fully established t.v the evidence.
Murder, lust and pillage prevailed over
many parts of Belgium on a scale un
paralleled in any war between civilized
nations during l.e last three centuries.
"Our function Is ended when e have
stated what the evidence establishes, but
we may be permitted to express our be
lief that these disclosures Will noE'hav
been made in vain if they touch and
rouse the conscience of mankind, and -we
venture to hope that ' soon as the
present war is over, the nations of the
world In council will consider what means
ran be provided and sanctions devised
to prevent the recurrence of such horrors
as our generation la now witnessing."
Evidence Is Conclusive.
The report makes an official document
of sixty-ono printed page, or upward
of 30.000 words, accompanied by maps,
showing the various ro'tfes of the. army
and the - chief scenes of desolation. It
states at the outset Jfoat 1.200 -witnesses
have been examined,' the depositions be
ing taken by examiners of legal knowl
edge and experience, though without
authority to administer an oath. The
examiners were instructed not to ,,lead"
the w itnessesrfind' to seek to bring out
the truth by ' cross-examination and
otherwise. The committee also submit
extracts ffom a number of diaries taken
from the -'German dead, chiefly. German
soldiers, and in some cases officers.
"Wc began the ;nqulty with doubts
whether a positive result would be ob
tained," says the rcptrt. "But the
further we went and the more evidence
we examined, so much the more was our
skepticism reduced. Therj might be somo
exaggeration ir one witness, possible de
lusion in another, inaccuracies in a third.
When, . however, we found that things
which at first seemed improbable were
testified to by many witness coming from
different plates, the points In which they
all agreed became" mere and more
evidently true. When thlu concurreuce of
testimony showed itself in hundreds of
Depositions, the truth of the broad facts
stood out beyond queV.l-m. The force of
ll.o evidence is cumuluuve."
Numerous ' Murder in Villages.
The committae states that It has re
ceived a greal mass of evidence on
"scenes of chronic, outrage" in liic ter
ritory bounded b the towns of Aershot,
Mallnes, Vilvoroe and l.ouvain. It states
the the total number of outrages Is so
gieat that the committee tann.it refer
to them all. The report states that the
battle of Malines was the occasion later
of "numerous murders committed by the
German army In retreating through the
villages, and In the second place it led
to the massacres, plunderinga and burn
ings at Louvan." The report adus:

A firing squad was prepared and five or
six prisoners were put up, but were not
shot. This taking of the Inhab
itants in groups and marching them to
various places must evidently have been
done under the direction of a higher mili
tary authority. The ill-treatment of the

in diarlcB which reveal a genuine pity
for the population and disgust at the
conduct of the army. It appears that a
German noncommissioned officer stated
definitely that ho 'was acting under or

willingness.' A commissioned officer on
being asked at Louvaln by a witness, a
highly edircated man, about the horrible
acta committed by the soldiers, said 'he

"We are driven to the conclusion that
the harrying of the villages In the dis

vain, the massacres there, the marching
out of the prisoners, and the transport to
Cologne, (all done without inquiry aa to
whether the particular persons seized or
killed had committed any acr, were due
to a calculated policy, carried out scien
tifically and deliberately, not merely with
the sanction,' but under the direction of
higher military authorities, and were not
due to any provocation or resistance by
the civilian population."
Dlarlea of German Quoted.
A division of the report is given to
diaries of German soldiers. The entry of
a sergeant of the First Guards regiment,
who received the Iron Cross, says under
date of -August 10: "A transport of 3
Belgians came through Dulsburg in the
morning-. Of these, eighty. Including the
oberburgomaster, were shot, according
to martial law." The diary of a member
of the Fourth company of Jagers, says,
under date of August 23: "About 120 In
habitants and the village were burnt. Ar
tillery la continuously shooting. Just
now, the crossing of the Meuse begins
near Dlnant. All villages, chateaux and
houses are burnt down during the night.
It Is a beautiful sight to see the fires all
round us In the distance." Another diary,
by a member of the Second Mounted
battery. First Kurhesslan Field Artillery
regiment. No. H, records an incident
which happened In French territory near
Lille on October 11:
"We had no fight, but we caught about
twenty men and shot them."
The committee says of this laat diary:
"By this time killing not In a fight would
seem to have passed into a habit."
Tho report adds that the most im
portant entry Is contained In diary No.
19. This contains no name and address,
but names referred to In the diary Indi
cate that entries were made by an of
ficer of the First regiment of Foot
Guards. The entry, made at Bermeton
on August 24. says: "We took about
1.000 prisoners: at least 600 were shot.
The village was burnt because the In
habitants had also shot. Two civilian
were shot at once."

The conclusions of the committee, as

"We must now sum up and endeavor
to explain tho character and significance
of the wrongful acts done by the Ger

or greatest intensity. Ther Is a certain
significance In the fact timt the outrages
around Llcgo coincide with the unex
pected resistance of the Belgian army in
that district, and that the slaughter
which reigned from August 1 to the end
of the month Is contemporaneous with
the period when the German army' need
for a quick passage through Belgian at
ail coMs was deemed Imperative.
"Here let a distinction e drawn be
tween two Classen of outrages.

Cltizens of neutral states who visited
Belgium ln IVcemher and January report
I hat the German authorities do not deny
that non-combatants were systematically
killed In large numbers during the first
weeks of the Invasion, and this, so far as
wo know, has never been offllcally de
nied. If It were, denied, the flight and
continued voluntary exile of thousands
of Belgian refugees would go far to con
tradict a denial, for there Is no historical
parallel In modern times for the flight
of a large part of a nation before an
Oefelise by f.rritiany.
"The German government has, how
ever, sought to Justify their severities on
the grounds of military necessity and
have excused them as retaliation for
cases ln which civilians fired on German
troops. There mr.y have been cases In
which such firing occurred, but no proof
has ever been given, or, to our knowl
edge, attempted to be given, of such
cases; nor of the stories of shocking out
rages perpetrated by Belgian men and
wonien on German soldiers."
Referring to a statement by the chan
cellor of the German empire on Septem
ber i, last, that Belgians had committed
outrages on the German soldiers, the
"No evidence whatever seems to have
been adduced to prove this, and though
there may be cases in which individual
Belgians fired on the Germans, the state
ment that 'the whole civilian population
of Belgian was called out' , is utterly op
posed to tho fact.
"An invading army may be entitled to
shoot at sight. a civilian caught red
handed, or anyone who, though not
caught red-handed, is proved guilty on
Inquiry-. But this was not the practice
followed by the German troops. They do
not seem to have made any Inquiry. They
seized the civilians of the village Indis
criminately and killed them, or such as
they selected from among them, without
the least regard to guilt or innocence.
The mere crime, 'clvlllsten haben ges
chossen,' was enough to hand over a
whole village or district, and even out
lying places, to ruthless slaughter.
"We gladly record the Instances where
the evidence shows that humanity has
not wholly disappeared from some mem
bers of tho German army and that they
realized that the responsible heads of
that organization were employing them,
not In war, but In butchery; 'I am merely
executing orders, and I should be shot If
I did not execute them,' said an officer
to a witness at Louvain. At Brussels an
other officer said: "I have not done one
hundredth part of what we have been
ordered to do by th high German mili
Committee at First Incredulous.
"That these acts should have been
perpetrated on the peaceful population of
an unoffending country which was not
at war with Its Invaders, but merely de
fending its own neutrality, guaranteed
by the invading power, may excite amaze
ment and even Incredulity. It was with
amazement and almost with Incredulity
that the committee first read the deposi
tions relating to such acts. But when
the eviaence regarding Aersehot, lou
vain, Andenne, I'lnant and the other
towns and villages, the cumulative effect
of BUch a mass of concurrent testimony
became Irresistible, and we were driven
to the conclusion thut the things de
scribed had really happened. The ques
tion then arose how they could have hap
pened. Not mere military license, for
the discipline of tho German army Is
proverbially stringent, and its oliedience
explicit. Not from any special ferocity
of the troops, for whoever has traveled
among the German peasantry knows that
they are as kindly and good-natured as
any people In Kurope, and those who
can recall tho war or IS70 will remember
that no chargea resembling those proved
by these desposltions were then estab
lished. The excesses recently com
mitted In Belgium were, moreover, too
widespread and too uniform In their
character to bo mere sporadic outbursts
of passion or rapacity.
"The explanation seems to be that these
excesses were committed ln some cases
