GERMANY DEMANDS HER COLONIES The colonial question is again in the forefront, ivith Germany demandirrth' return of the colonic taken from her at the conclu .ion of the World war. The conte ntion i made that President Wilson's fifth point, accepted along with I 3 other, as the famous Four teen Points preliminary to a trealy of peace, guaranteed "a free open minded and absolutely impartial adjustment of all colonia' claims. ' When the war began Germany possessed a colonial empire o' 1.137.894 wuare mile., with a population of 13.051.900 persons Located in the tropic and unsuited for European settlement. th colonies had only 24,400 white inhabitants, including Germans and aliens. Her imperialists, not aatisf.ed with it, demanded a "place in the ran" but at the end of the f.-hting the entire empire was d.s tributed to various administrations. The intrinsic value of the colonies to Germany was very small. Their total trade, in 1913. the year before the war amounted to $86,000.00. or about cne-fifth cf I per cent of the world total of $41,838,000,000. Only sfohtly more than a third of the colonies trade was with Germany and it amounted to only six -tenth, of 1 per cent of the total trade of Germany. Notwithstanding these facts ihe Germany of today wants its colonies returned, more as a matter of prestige than anything else Recently, Dr. Hialmer Schacht, minister of economics, declared tha' "the future of European peace" depends upon satisfying the demanc for the return of the overseas porsessions. The report from Parr was that, under certain circumstarces, France might consider hand ing back the h?re of Togoland and Cameroon, approximating one fourth of the lost empire. While Dr. Schacht insists that Germany's economic existence depend, upon colonies there i. nothing in the past to indicate am such importance attache, to the issue. However, it work, to create discontent in Germany where privation, are explained by the lack of the former colonia empire. company. . . .
