UNPROVED ACCUSATIONS

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir,—Don't yon think that there should be a limit to the blackening of the character of our enemies? Are you justified in publishing any idle rumor to their detriment? Those of us who know what excellent men and women there are in the German medical and nursing professions will have been pained to read the suggestion contained in a troopers letter: that the German medical staff were guilty of purloining the bedding and instruments belonging to the hospital in Samoa. It is stated that when a watch was kept the disappearance of the appliances ceased. Now, is it not much more probable that the thieving was the work of the natives, who are notorious thieves, and who would tako advantage of the “ new chums ” win were in charge, and presumably did not keep the same surveillance as their lat German masters? Your paragraph close: with the remark: “ The incident shows traces of the same spirit that animates the German soldier in Europe, and that lias resulted in the atrocities that have startled the civilised world " Is it possible that some of these " atrocities ” which have harrowed our feelings rest upon no better foundation Ilian the above accusation?— I am, etc., Justitia. November 7.
