GERMANY WONT SURRENDER
ALSACE-LORRAINE IN PEACE
Berlin, via Wireless to Sayville,
L. I., Deo. 9. The Imperial German
chancellor, Voh Bethmann-Hollweg,
today refused to state possible terms
of peace, in reply to demand made by
the German Socialists. Instead, he
made it plain to a great gathering
in the reichstag that any peace pro
posals must come from Germany's
"For the German nation," said the
chancellor, "this war has always re
mained what it was at the beginning
a war of defense for the German
nation and her future."
He indicated, too, that Germany
would not consider as one of the pos
sible terms of peace the surrender
to Prance of Alsace and Lorraine."
He met the French claims on Alsace-Lorraine
on the "nationality
basis," with the statement that 87
per cent of the Alsace inhabitants
speak German. And he taunted Eng
land by inquiring what would hap
pen if the same "nationality" test
were applied in the British posses
sions of India and Egypt.
Dr. Philip Scheidemann, the So
cialist leader whose interpolation re
sulted in today's peace discussion, re
minded the reichstag that at the be
ginning of the war the Socialists ap
proved the attitude of the German
government. "A glance at the map,"
said Scheidemann, "will show that
Germany is conscious of her strength
and her successes. Germany can
now speak for peace without risking
being considered weak-heated or dis
pirited. "The question of peace is now up
permost in all the countries at war,
only the statesmen do not know how
to begin negotiations because they
consider such a step would be a con
fession of weakness."
