    Highlight: On the Continent Calvinistic Hollandnd divided, the triumphs of Louis XIV. and the treachery of Austria had cast a wide despondency. In numerous reformed cities along the Rhine the Romish faith had been once more made prepon- derant by the overwhelming influence of France. At the treaty of Nimeguen the Protestants had been shameftlly betrayed by the emperor, and oppressed by the haughty and unscrupulous Louis. Holland alone, still rich and progress- ive, interposed between Northern Germany and France, and by its desperate valor had shut out from Hanover and Brandenburg the brilliant soldiers who, under Conde or Turenne, migh

    Highlight: It is improbable that there could ever have been any- thing like our golf links in Hollandem would be the dunes which protect the west coast from the sea, such as those of Zandvoort, or of Domburg in Walcheren; but these do not appear on inspection to be suitable. The grass is too sparse and too coarse, the sur- face of the ground too hummocky. They would provide admirable bunkers, it is true, but nothing else. Then, the inland parts of Holland are given over to grain-growing and fat pasture-laud, and were probably always too valu- able for golfing purposes, even had they been suitable. Holland, indeed, might be described as a vast cow-park, protected from the sen by a line of bunkers and Hants — two necessary accompaniments of golf, but not in them- selves

    Highlight: "The Master is on our side!" [TO Ut OONTINtnca.] Concerning Golf in Holland . By James Cunningham I WAS working my way through the Dutch pictures in the Rotterdam gallery, steering my course by the stars in Baedeker. and I arrived at No. 363, by "Jan Steen (1636-79 a.d.), Feast of St. Nicolas”— a family group. This picture I was doggedly examining when I was surprised lo notice in The centre of the canvas the figure of a little boy who holds in his hand tin undoubted golf-club. Now Jan Steen is not an artist who deals in broad effects; when, for example, he paints you the graceful curves of a potato peeling, there can be no doubt in your mind as to what sort of vegetable the peeling belongs to. There is the same perfect fidelity about this drawing of a golf- club. It is a boy's driver, wit

England was very worried that the League would gain other members, because her blockade of France and Spain required neutral ships voluntarily to accede to British inspection on the high seas (Betts-584). Holland wavered for a time but her ultimate decision to join the League late that year led England to declare war against Holland in December, 1780. Then followed a series of sea battles culminating in Doggersbank (Betts-589 is the nicest). The first Dutch loan to America was made in November, 1781 .

    Highlight: 533 There were no usury laws in Holland. Luckily we are not left to infer from general principles, however well established, the many advantages that would result from a repeal of the laws limiting the rate of interest. The case of Holland furnishes a practical and striking proof of the correctness of the theory we have been endeavoring to establish. It is an undoubted fact, that the rate of interest has been, for a very long period, lower in Holland, than in any other country in Europe ; and yet Hollandown, where capitalists are allowed to demand, and borrowers to pay any rate of interest. Strictly speaking, this applies only to the state of Holland previously to the Revolution in 1795. The enactments of the Code Napoleon were

    Annual Report of the Director of the Mint to the Secretary of the Treasury for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 1883

    30/6/1883

    Highlight: The monetary situation iu Holland in 1879 was highly satisfactory; gold was abun- dant in the country, and on the last of September of the same year the bank held 37,348,000 florins of Holland coins and 71,306,000 florins in bars and foreign coins. On the other hand, the circulation was estimated at 31,000,000 florins, which, added to the above figures, give a general total of 140,000,000 florins ($56,280,000). Holland has, then, lost during the last three years about 115,000,000 florins in gold. In regard to silver, it is necessary to take into consideration the circulation in the colonies, which is quite considerable. The situation iu the Dutch possessions, par- ticularly Java, is very peculiar. In 1877, with the view of regulating the monetary system of the Dutch East Indies, a law was

We have no statement of the value of the sugar im- ported into Rotterdam in 1840 ; but in 1841, it was £259,720. From this it may be inferred that the importation of sugar into Holland centres in these two ports. One-half of the sugar annually imported into Hol- land would appear to be drawn from its own colonies. Of this portion, 15.000 tons are drawn from Surinam, f the rest from Java.

    Highlight: the society is to transport it into Hollandxed price ; this price was, in 1839, twenty-eight centimes per kilogramme of coffee, and twenty-three centimes per kilogramme of sugar. The Dutch government would increase its revenue one third by selling the produce of Java in Java, but then the aim would not be attained. Dutch navigation must be kept up by the transport of the produce, and the produce must be brought to Holland, in' order that Holland may remain the great market. The result of this arrangement has answered the largeness of those views which die- tated them. When the society was established, the Dutch flag only trans- ported half the produce of their Indies, and now it transports all. “ In the year 1838 alone, the society freighted upwards of 140 vessels, of

    Highlight: Holland tells us with confidence what he has accomplished: “ I have written the tragedy of a generation which is nearing its end. I have sought to conceal neither its vices nor its virtues, its profound sadness, its chaotic pride, its heroic efforts, its despondency be- neath the overw’heiming and suiwrhuman task, the burden of the whole world, the reconstruction of the W'orld’s morality, its esthetic principles, its faith, the forcing a new humanity. Such we have been.” Those who speak in this large way are perfectly safe from refutation. Any writer may confidently ex- pose an entire generation, for an entire generation never answers back. It is a rule well known to con- temporary writers, and one that they have most lucra- tively observed, that the broader their generalizations the safer

    Highlight: King of Holland, more inter- ested in the immediate pecuniary prosperity of his subjects than in the political views of his brother, neglected to enforce the Imperial Decree against English trade. Consequently immense importations of English merchandise took place in the ports of Holland, and from thence were smuggled throughout Europe. Napoleon de- termined to put an end to a state of things so entirely subversive of the effectual yet bloodless warfare he was now waging. He considered that he had a right to demand the co-operation of all those new popular governments which his voice had called into being, and which were en- tirely dependent upon France for support against surrounding enemies. The overthrow of pop- ular institutions in France would whelm them all in common ruin. And in

Christians risked their lives daily to hide Jews, and when the Nazis forced the Jews to wear a yellow Star of David many gentiles followed suit. Ultimately, 110,000 Jews were deported to the death camps from the Westerbork concentration camp. Only 6,000 Dutch Jews survived. Today there are 20,000 Jews in Holland. Because of their deep roots in the country's economic, social, cultural, and political life, they have made an astonishing recovery.

Having made some money, Mr. Wester- man returned to Holland in 1899 and became a member of the staff of the Incasso Bank, a very thriving institution in Amsterdam. Some years later he was offered the op- portunity of joining in the management of the Rotterdamsche Bank, of Rotterdam, cui secretary, and two years later, in 19(14, be- came a managing director of that institu- tion. At that time the Rotterdamsche Bank was a fifty-year-old, very conservative in- stitution of high standing in the country, and was also internationally well known.

During 1921, German competition was severe. It was a large factor in accen- tuating the industrial crisis in Holland. This vear, however, German competition in the export markets of Holland has been much less felt, and stabilization of raw materials, prices and deflation of wages in Hollandbasis, which has re- sulted in giving to foreign investors the op- portunity to buy Dutch securities on an at- tractive basis.
