FOR REFUGEES IN BELGIUM Newspaper of Doubtful Value

From Our Own Correspondent ANTWLRP.

A man named Williams, hailing apparently from the U.S.A.—and most probably a Jew—has resuscitated a weekly newspaper that once was the organ in Belgium of the British and American residents.

It is expensively got up, well printed. Outwardly it attacks Germany. Its matter is commonplace, even scurrilous. Couched in the vilest pungent New York slang, Mr. Williams narrates his crossing to Belgium from New York, his arrival at Antwerp, and an " adventure " he had the same evening in a dark street, when a lady he followed resisted his overtures and gave him two lovely black eyes, with which he returned to his Antwerp hotel and began to unpack his bag.

The publicity and advertisements are suggestive and low. Base propositions for marriage, business affairs, and such things as obtaining University degrees for a modest fee.

This periodical is apparently to serve the crowds of Jewish refugees overflowing into Belgium, in a common language, English. The same newspaper will suit for Rotterdam, and other Continental ports where there are refugees. The general matter will be the same, only the local news changing.
