War Aims of

Accord With Policies

Four Nations Answer Plans
of English Workers and
Agree to Programme i
N'OKTHAMPTON, July 13.- Arthur'
Henderson, labor leader and former?
member of the British War Cabinet,,
speaking to-day at a labor conference !
(.?re, said the British Labor party last
month had succeeded in petting its;
statement of war aims into the hands
of the Socialists of enejny countries!
und that four replies thus far had been
"The first reply came from the Bui-1
carian Socialists, who accepted practi-;
cally all the general points of our,
memorandum, reserving some unim-,
portant points regarding Macedonia,"
"The second reply came from the
Hungarian workers, who have submit?
ted to the Stockholm committee a state?
ment of policy much on the lines of
"The third reply came from the Au?- ?
trian Socialists, who accepted the prin?
ciples of the inter-Allied memorandum
as a basis for discussion. They in?
dorsed our conception of a federal sys?
tem for Austria-Hungary and a similar j
system for the Balkan states.
"They declared that they had always
repudiated the Brest-Litovsk peace
treaty; and they agreed that Alsace
Lorraine and Italian. Polish and colo?
nial questions must be solved in ac
cordance with the desires of the peo-j
"The fourth reply came from the
German minority Socialists, who sub?
mitted a statement to the Stockholm
committee on the lines of the inter
"The fifth, and the most significant,
reply came from the German majority
Socialist?, who endeavored to send it by
Troclstra. but the action of the Allies
in refusing passports to Troelstra pre?
vented the written document from
reaching us. Nevertheless, we received
a summary which shows that the Ger?
man majority Socialists declared their
willingness to take part in an inter?
national conversation on the basis of
the proposals made by the neutral So?
"It also seems clear that the German
majority Socialists accept virtually all
the principals of the inter-Allied mom- '.
orandum. They are ready to discuss
even the question of the responsibility
for the war, although they think that
no good purpose would be served there?
by. They are ready to discuss Belgium
and Alsace-Lorraine and believe that
an amicable solution can be found.
They agree to a complete restoration of
Belgium independence. They urge that
an international conference would be
very useful at this time and, finally,
they declare themselves in favor of "a
league of nations to prevent aggression
by one power upon another."

Baker Gets Baseball
"Work or Fight" Case
(Special Dispatch to The Tribune)
WASHINGTON', July 13.?The case
of Eddie Ainsmith, catcher of the j
Washington American League foam,
now before Secretary of War Baker for
consideration, is the first "work or
fight" test of professional baseball
players presented to the War Depart?
Secretary Baker said to-day he had
not, investigated the contention of j
Catcher Ainsmith for deferred classiti- !
cation and was not prepared to indicate ,
whether men in the baseball fraternity *
would be affected in the regulations.
While Secretary of War Baker is ;
known to entertain a high regard for i
baseball as a sport, and regrets that,
the militar>- requirements of the coun- [
try must include the thousands of
players who are of draft age. be has
said that each case will be considered [
solely on its merits and will not bo in- i
fluenced by any opinion held by him.
He will consider the case of ball play?
ers, not only from the standpoint of
the player himself, but will also seek?
to ascertain if the drafting of players
will cause serious interruption of the
sport and result in financial loss to
It is maintained by owners of ball
clubs that baseball should be consid- i
cred in the same category as the the- I
atrical profession, and that the govern- j
ment should not lose sight of the fact. j
that thousands of dollars annually go j
to the government through war tax on !
tickets, and that clubs endeavor to as?
sist the Red Cross and other patriotic
enterprises in their campaign for funds.
It also will be advanced that ball
players in off seasons are to a large ex?
tent engaged in useful occupations and
their draft into the service will be un?
just. One way out of the difficulty that
is believed to be entertained by the
War Department is the suggestion that
the players of draft age be allowed to
continue the sport during the playing
season of 1918 and at its termination
take their places with other men sub?
ject to military service, on the basis
of their winter occupation.

Britain to Give
In Peace Pact
"God of Brute Force Must
Be Broken," Lloyd
LONDON, July U. The govern?
ments of the British dominions will
have a voice in determining the terms
of peace, according to Mr. Lloyd
George. The Prime Minister made
this statement in a speech at a dinner
given in honor of the Canadian editors
who are visiting England, at which
Lord Bcavcrbrook was the host.
"This is a war in which we engaged
the emnire," said the Premier, "when
we had no time to consult the domin?
ions as to policy, and it is perfectly
true that the policy which we adopted
to protect small nations in Europe was
a policy embarked upon without any
consultation with the dominions. But
you approved of it. Hencefortn you
have the right to be consulted as to
the policy beforehand, and this is the
change which has been effected as a
result of the war.
"The contributions which you have
made to enforce these treaties have
given you the undeniable right to a
voice in fashioning the policy which
may commit you, and for that reason
an imperial war cabinet is a reality.
"Another point in which you must
have a voice is the scttlemenf of the
conditions of peace. We have discussed
war aims and the conditions under
which we are prepared to make peace
at the War Cabinet. We arrived at. an
agreement on the subject last year with
the representatives of the Dominions
and we shall reconsider the same prob?
lems in the light of events which have
occurred since?and we shall recon?
sider the whole of these problems, I
have no doubt, in the course of the next

land, yes, and Newfoundland-they
have all contributed their share of
sacrifice and they arc entitled to an
equal voice with the representatives of
these islands?will determine the con?
ditions under which we are prepared to
make peace. Unless I am mistaken, we
aro pretty well in'1 agreement upon
"We in this country, who have, lost
hundreds of thousands and have had
millions maimed, and you in Canada,
whose casualties have amounted to
scores of thousands, and Australia,
who has also played her share in these
things?we are not making these sac
; rifices in order to establish a fraud
on this earth, and anything less than
1 a real peace will be defrauding not.
this generation, but the next genera?
tion; it will be defrauding humanity.
"There must be no hugger-mugger
peace. It must be a real peace. We
j arc not waging war for the sake of
; killing or of being killed, but. for the
! sake of establishing a just and durable
i peace for the world. You cannot make
; peace unless it is both just and likely
1 to endure.
"Germany has waged three wars, and
each time she has added through
I those wars to her strength, to her
; power, to her guidance, to her influ
i encc, and each successive war she has
i waged has inevitably encouraged her
? on to the next. If she had had one
check she would not have had this
war. If this war succeeds in adding
one square yard to her territory, of
adding one cubit, to her stature, of
adding a single iota to her strength,
it will simply raise their idea of mili?
tarism, for which the world is being
sacrificed at the present time.

time forever be brogen and burnt in

Belgium Held as Pawn Only
Hertling Told Reichstag
Copenhagen, July 13.?A German
? ?flicial telegram received here to-day
s a y s :
"With regard to the statements made
on Thursday by the Imperial Chancel?
lor in the main committee of the Reich?
stag regarding Belgium, a view has
spread among the public which may
give rise to misunderstanding. We are,
therefore, giving in full that part of
the Chancellor's speech. He said:
" 'The present possession of Belgium
?inly means we have a pawn for future
[negotiations. We have no intention to
keep Belgium in any form watever.'
"By the expression pawn is meant
that one docs not intend to keep what
one has in one's hand as a pawn if
negotiations bring a favorable result."
One More Such Peace
Treaty and We Are Lost,
Says Reichstag Leader
AMSTERDAM, July 13.- "One or two
more such peace treaties and we are
lost," exclaims Herr von Graefe, a
Conservative member of the Reichstag,
in a tierce indictment, of former For?
eign Secretary von Kuehlmann's "no
indemnity, no annexations" peace
treaty of Bucharest. The article, which
is published in the pan-German
"Deutsche Zeitung," devel ?ped four
points, as follows:
"1. Austria-Hungary has received by
frontier rectifications the lion's share
of the most valuable Rumanian terri?
tory, and not our ?nemies, but we have
to shoulder our billions of war debt.
"2. The petroleum agreement is an
absolute swindle. By it the banks
profit, but not the German people, who
will have to pay dearly for their oil.
"I!. We get Rumanian grain, but at
usury prices, of which the Rumanian
treasury is sure to grab the main part
by way of export duties; so it is we
who pay an indemnity to Rumania.
"4. The dynastic question and the
position of Jews in Rumania are dealt
w-ith on the basis of the Berlin treaty
of 1878, when self-determination and
rights and non-interference in internal
affairs of conquered states had not

Of Hertling Speech
AMSTERDAM, July 13. ? Reforc
Count von Hertling, the imperial Chan?
cellor, delivered his address in the
Reichstau on Thursday, Herr von
Payer, the Vice-Chancellor, said that
a portion of the ChanceUor'a statement |
would be confidential. Such parts of |
it as he declared to be confidential i
should be treated as such, Herr von
Payer insisted, and not ?-ft into the.
press as on former occasions.
The Main Committee pave its con?
sent to this.
After the Chancellor's speech had
been delivered a general discussion
took place. Deputy Fischbeck, a Pro?
gressive, said it mus be made clear
that the resignation of Dr. von Kue.hl
mann as Foreign Secretary was not the
result of pro-German intriques and
that the appointment of his successor
was not made at the request of those
: circles and not in the furtherance of
I their policy.
The Deputy said that the Chancellor's
1 announcement of adherence to his pol-1
I icy was satisfactory and that if he!
I carried out the promises he had mad a I

j new Foreign Secretary, Admiral von j

Count von Westarp, Conservative '
member of the Reichstag, said:
"The reasons given for Foreign Sec-1
rctary von Kuehlmann's retirement
were decisive. The. unfavorable effect |
i of his speech was created more from |
I what, he refrained from paying than by
] what he said. Now, as before. I can- |
? not approve of the Chancellor's internal i
! policy. The reply to the Papal note1
was only a diplomatic act and had j
I no place, in the government's pro-j
"Of course we must all respond to
i every serious suggestion of peace ne-|

j Count von Westarp denied that he?
: and his friends had boomed tho candi- :
j dacy of Admiral von Hintze to succeed j
: von Kuehlmann, and said:
"We have no prejudice, cither good
i or bad, with regard to the new State
! Secretary and we shall await his policy.,
! It is desirable that Admiral von Hintze
' should in the main have the closest
cooperation with the supreme army
command, a point on which the Chan?
cellor lays such emphasis."
Adolf Groeber, one of the Centre
leaders in the Reichstag, said:
"Serious peace proposals from the
; enemy must be seriously examined.
; We cannot, however, again and again
j manifest; our readiness for peace and

Philipp Scheidemann, Socialist
