tlik-oeo Tribune ruble. C'opjrleht 1MJ.
Berlin, Jan. 31. Germany's value
in gold is 330,000. 000.0(H) marks. The
allies demand 38,000,000,000 ,gold
marks as war indemnity. Accord
ing to -Berlin financial experts this
action means national confiscation.
It is pointed out that Germany has
lost one-seventh of her population
through the Versailles treaty terms
and also, putting France's wealth at
210,000,000.000 gold marks, the
perts declare that should France' ob
tain 55 per cent of the indemnity
this would equal three-fifths of that
nation's national wealth.
Berlin had expected that a sum
running into billions of gold marks
but the amount set by the supreme
council is considered so high as to
be ridiculous.
Official circles have received the
news with little comment, but the'
general opinion is that the amount is
beyond sane discussion and means
that Germany will not pay anything.
The Catholic organ, Germania,
said in an editorial: . .
"Germany will never pay because
she cannot. We have only paper
mon'fy of which the allies demand
2,000,000.000 marks worth."
The Kreutz Zietung declares:
'"The figures are beyond discus
sion. The amount .is higher than
the whole German national property
and all possessions, both personal
and public-."
