Germany's guilt for the war was
emphasized from a new angle In the
publication at Paris by the French
foreign office of the secret documents
pertaining to the secret alliance be
tween France and Russia.
Quotations from the publication,
known as the yellow book of the
Franco-Russian alliance, were cabled
to the French embassy here today.
For Defense Oaly.
The work shows that the alliance
was strictly of a defensive character.
and the armed forces of the two pow
ers made mutually available by the
military convention of 1892 to pre
serve the integrity of the countries.
The point is Indicated that the entente
military agreement was the direct
result of the danger to European
peace through the formation of the
Terms of Treaty.
The alliance provided that "If
France It attacked by Germany or by
Italy supported by Germany, Russia
will employ all of her forces In at
tacking Germany, and If Russia is
attacked by Germany, or by Austria
supported by Germany, France will
employ all her forces In fighting Ger
many." It was also provided that In the
event of the mobilization of any
power of the triple alliance, both
France and Russia would mobilize.
France's strength was estimated at
1.300,000 men and Russia's at 700.000
men when the treaty was negotiated.
