Foreign Minister
Has Idea Chivalry
Should Be Given
Recognition As a
First Preliminary
AMSTKRDAM. June 26
(Associated Press) Scout
ing the idea of any military vic
tory for the Allies and claiming
that Austria has just won a
triumph in Italy, von Kuehltnan,
( ierm;iiiv's foreign minister, made
a statement of ("lermany's war
aims in the rcichstag yesterday.
These aims, as laid down by the
foreign minister, arc based on the
' ierman faith in final military
ictor. but are not to be looked
u son, lie e.lained, as the full
rnits of such a victory.
A significant feature of the ad
dress of the foreign minister was
'lis shifting of the blame for the
war from the shoulders of (ireat
Hritain, which has been the in
ariablc (ierman claim so far, anl
ilacing it uion Russia. The scc
"iil featue of his announcement
,is his declaration that Germany
oiild not pledge herself in ad
ance to the restoration of 1 lei -;;ium.
MORE VICTORY COMING
Speaking of the military situa
'.son. von Kuehlman said that the
cent (mmiiiiiii victories hint given
hat country the initiative of action in
.'ranee. "We can hope that this Hum
mer inn) autumn will bring new sue
i'sc to our arms," he declared. He
iinrad completely the fact that tl.o
list rian army had been overwhelmed
in its offensive in Italy, Baying that
he recent activities of the Austrian
urmy hud resulted in a notable success.
"Tho result of this year's military
..cfivtics have shown that the Alii'
idea, of obtaining a victory is only nil
idle dream," he concluded.
WILSON DIDN'T BITE
The statement of the foreign minis
ler was followed by another by von
ilei tling. the imperial chancellor. "I
Miiil in a previous address to you that
tlie statement of the war aims of the
I'nited States by President Wilson
; resented four points which might form
the basis of pence,'' he told the reich
sta' members. "Hut," ho continued,
'tiyre follower! no utterance '.from
l',Mi'lent Wilson that ho desired to
.I How up my suggestion anil I can see
ii object in spinning further threads
I him those which I have started. Still
li ss i there an object in so doing after
the statements which since then have
tcached ns, especially from America.
These later statements make clear to
'is wlut is to bo understood in tho
j hni'-c 'a peace league of peoples', or
league of peoples for the main
: i name of freedom and justico'."
GERMAN WAR AIMS
In his statement, von Kuehlman told
ie leirhsta;,' that Uermnny could not
'i.l herself to any pledges regarding
Belgium. liegaiiliiig the war aims of
i iei ma ny lie said :
" We wish a tree, strong and inde
j i.' in 1 1-ii r existence yvithin the boun-la-ies
drawn for us by history. Y c
'lesire overseas possessions correspoud-
ii g to our greatness and wealth. We
' esire the freedom of the sens for the
inrrving of our trade to all parts of
li;r world."
The blame for the war, he said, rests
oiiiofly with Kussia, which instigated
the conflict. Krance is next in lino of
culpability and tireat Hritain neit.
(Quoting from the speech mado by
sipnth on May I'i, when the former
Butish premier said that (ireat Hri
lani wouhi not turn a deaf ear to peace
m "portals if they come couched in
t' -rnis that are not ambiguous, tho
foreign minister said:

WASHINGTON PAYS NO
HEED TO VON KUEHLMAN
WASHINGTON, June 26 (Associated Press) The statement mart In
the reichrtag yesterday by Foreign Minister von Kuehlman regarding Oct
many'! war alma and her readiness to listen to pence proposal from the
Allies la regarded here as only another phase of the regular Oerman cy le of
first a military drire and then a pear offenslre, iiKh aa have rogu'.ar y oc
curred. The effort of the German statesman to fasten the chief blame for the
outbreak of the war upon Russia Is the only new feature of the state
ment, as all previous statements in Germany agreed upon p'lU'Uig the chief
blame upon Great Britain.
It Is believed that the main purpose of the German foreign minister Is
to invite peace proposals from the western Allies, an effort that it Is gen
erally agreed will be fruitless.
