NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 March 1915
NEWS AND NOTES. NEuTRALLIT.-Neutrals are always at *a certain disadvantage in comparison with belligerents, and the more power ful the latter, the greater the difficul ties of neutral nations. It might be thought that their liberty to trade with the nations at war would remain unimpaired, and, so far as their bound aries are conterminons, this is to a large extent, the case. But the question of !' contraband of war" comes in. If, for instance, Holland were to sell guns and ammunition to Germany, she would be regarded as an ally of the latter country, and her re lations with the Allies would be seri ously compromised. For their own makes, therefore, neutral nations have to forbid the supply, by their subjects of war material to any of the nations actually at war. It is a rule, however, which is not enforced with any degree of stringency, except when the nation which would be aggrieved by the transaction is viligilant and deter mined, and has the power to shut down on any such traffic...
