GERMAN HE-JEM-ON-E.

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Whether German hegemony is to rule Europe is problematical, but a line or two about its meaning (with results) from an economic point may be permissible. It embraces influence, direction, and authority. A manufacturer in Germany obtains an order—from anywhere—for a line of goods. This order is taken to his banker, and without any further trouble he obtains an advance of 60 per cent. This is how German hegemony influences their export trade to the enormous extent ft has done, doubling in 10 years. We cannot compete against tabs credit system of German banking. The despotism of German hegemony under authority is too repulsive, unthinkable, to ask space for, but I crave a line to cheer up old bluejackets tor the loss of so many of their comrades. This is a struggle of the “ Tom Sayers ” school: The harder you’re thrown, the higher you bounce— Be proud of your blackened eye. It is not the fact that you’re rammed that counts, But how did you fight, and why. It is worth being rammed for the future historian to answer the " why.”—l am, etc., JEM.
