NEW YORK, Oct. 10—Dr. von Be thmann-Holhveg, the German Chan cellor, early in September made a for mal statement to The Associated Press. The existence of the statement was known but it failed to reach Am erica by either mail or cable, and its text has become available through a copy of the North German Gazette, just received here. The Chancellor’s statement follows: “General Headquarters, Sept. 2—I do not know what is thought of this war in America. I assume there have been published in America the tele grams exchanged between the German Emperor, the Emperor of Russia and the King of England, containing the history of the events that preceeded the outbreak of the war and which bears irrefutable testimony of how the Emperor until the last moment strove hard to preserve the peace.” “These efforts had to be futile, as Russia under all circumstances had re-, solved upon war, and as England, which for decades had encouraged the anti-German nationalism in Russia and France did not avail herself of the splendid opportunity offered her to prove her often emphasized love of peace, otherwise the war between Ger many and France and England could have been averted. When once the archives are opened the world will learn how. often Ger many extended to England her friend' ly hand, but England did not desire | the friendship of Germany. Jealous of the development of Germany and feeling that by German efficiency and German industry she has been _S’ir- j passed in some fields she had the de-, sire to crush Germany by brute force, as sh« in former times subdued Spain, Holland and France. She believed the moment had arrived and therefore the entry of German troops into Belgium gave her a welcome pretext to take part in the war.” “Germany, however was forced to enter Belgium because she had to forestall the planned French advance and Belgium only awaited this ad vance to join Franee. That only a pre text was involved as far as England is concerned is proven by the fact that already on the afternoon of August 2, that is, prior to the violation of Bel-1 gium neutrality by Germany, Sir Ed ward Grey assured the French Am bassador unconditionally of the help of England in case the German fleet attacked the French coast.
