The flrBt movo of the German staff when entering a town was to proceed to the city hall and announce to tho burgomaster that for resisting the advance of, the Emperor William's armies his city or town had been fined so many thousand or million francs, as the case might be. When the burgomaster would remonstrate, Uhlans -and Death's Head Hussars wonid covort Innocenty lu city hail squoro or the burgomaster would be token prisoner. in one Injstanco In tho Province of Licjje the German commander of the company entering the town informed the Burgomaster that a war contribution of 100,000 francs would have to be forthcoming within two hours. The Burgomaster demurred. Never in the, history "-of the llttlo town had there been so much money In the city treasury. At the present moment, there was only a little over thruu thousand francs in the strong box. •'Well, wo'll take that," calmly responded the German. More Than 2dO,000,000 Francs. More than 20,000,000 francs were thus levied between August and -November, 1.914. Then Field Marshal Baron von der Goltz-Pasha decreed that Belgium would have to pay a monthly contribution of 40,000,000 francs during one year and It would not be increased and that it wCuld be renewed. The Pasha's decree, however, proved to be hut another scrap of paper. In November 1915, Baron von Pissing called upon the councils of the nine Belgian provinces tq meet and informed them that the promise of his predecessor had been made In good faith but with the implied condition that war would be ended within the year and that he saw-no alternative but than to renew the monthly contribution of 40,000,000-francs for another year. On the 20th of November, 1910, instead of abolishing the. onerous tax on Belgium, von Hissing decided that, owing to the duration of the war, the inereaso in prices—lilght cost of big—he Would have to increase lh« ni'onihly 'payments to 50,000.000. Ho added ominously, "temporarily." It proved to be so, Indeed, for, on the 21st of May. 191", the contribution was further raised to CO,000,000 francs. .'The flow, of francs into the coffers of the "War Lord" was too s .iiat! to satisfy the gargantuan appetites ot tho military men however, and on the 12lh of September, 1910, they "seized - ' 430,000,000 million marks, constituting all the deposits in German bills of. the Banque Nationals and the Societe Gcnerale do Ilolgifiue, the two largest I banks in Belgium, When one of the Directors of the'Sochto General'' refused to divulge that part of the cum. bination of the vaults which he alone i kuew and without which the vaults j could not bo opened, the Gor- nMins said that they wculd' 'luow them open with high explosives, j The director rather than have tliej vaults f of the institution wrecked de-] cided to acquiesce.
