GERMANY NOT READY
TO PROPOSE PEACE
ENTENTE MUST BE FIRST TO SEEK
END OF WAR,
Twmerial Chancellor Declares Central
Powers' Economic /Condition Equal j
of Military Achievements.
Berlin, Dec. 9.?So long as uncontrolled
hatred of Germany and the
belief that Germany is approaching a j
col-lapse continue to be the dominant j
idea of the enemy countries, it would :
be folly for Germany to take the initiative
in proposing terms of peace.
Germany, however, is ready at any
time to consider a peace suggestion
from the countries "with which she is
at war; does not wish a continuation
of the war; and dissociates herself,
jmder these circumstances, from any I
responsibility for its prolongation.
This is the substances of the Gen-1
man imperial chancellor's reply in the j
reichstag to day to the Socialist inter- j
pellation on peace, in which he painted
a picture of Germany's triumphant
on all sides and supplied with everything,
even if not in abundance, necessary
to the continuation of the war.
The interpellation was introduced
by Dr. Scheidemann in the following
"Is the imperial chancellor ready to j
give information as to the conditions ;
under "which he would be willing to;
enter into peace negotiations?''
Ready to Bisccss Them.
"If our enemies make peace proposals
compatible with Germany's dig- !
nity and safety," ssaid Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg,
"then we shall always
be ready to discuss them. So long as
in the course of our enemies the guilt
and ignorance of statesmen are entangled
with confusion of public opinion
it would be folly for Germany to
make peace proposals, which would not
shorten, but would lengthen the war.'
Only two Socialists spoke on the interpellation,
all the non-Socialists parties
uniting in a short declaration op-1
posing discussion at this moment. The ;

iThe imperial chancellor in his first
speech, lasting half an hour, explained
the military situation on ail the fronts
and declared emphatically that Germany
could not be starved out. The
country had enough food, if properly
distributed. Germany's enemies, he
said, were suffering more than the Germans,
and paying higher prices for

At the conclusion of the imperial
chancellor's first speech Dr. Kaempf,
president of the chamber, read the interpretation
and put the formal question
as to whether the government was
prepared to reply.
"We are ready to reply immediately,"
replied Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg.
The reichstag presented the typical
appearance of a momentous day, there
being not even standing room in the I
galleries. The American ambassador,
James W. Gerard, was among the diplomats
present. The great audience
also included the Duke of Mecklenburg.
