UNPROVED ACCUSATIONS.

He lays: "Is it possible that some ot these atrocities which have harrowed our feelings rest upon no better foundation than the accusation made by a. trooper against the Germ&tt medical staff at Samoa of purloining the bedding and medical instruments belonging to the hospital?" ".lustitia" must know, along with the rest ot the reading public throughout tho world, that the German officers have themselves committed and permitted the rank and filo of the army to commit unnameable crimes. Yet, forsooth, because "Justitia" happens to belong to a class who have eaten and drunken with cultured Germans, he now not only holds a briof for them, but would have us utterly discount and disbelieve a statement made by one of our own boys at Samoa, and discredit the cabled reports of Ilia friends' inhuman atrocities. May I ask "Justitia" what motive would inspire or constrain a colonial trooper to make an unproved accusation against a German who had been veneered with culture according to Nietzsche. I consider that whilst these evil days are upon us every newspaper correspondent desirous of publishing an excuse for Germany or Germans should sign his or her name, so that we may bo able, to distinguish friend from toe.—l am, etc..
