Count Czernln, Minister of Foreign Affairs, submitted a confidential report to Emperor Charles on April 12. This report was to bo sent to German headquarters.

Military successes achieved during tho following weeks restored confidence at Vienna, at least to a certain extent" Bethinann-IIollweg, then Chancellor, denies having sent Erzberger to Vienna at that time "in order to stiffen the Austrian Emperor's backbone"," but says Count von Wedel, Erzberger made sev eral trips to Vienna on his own respon sibility. Before departing he would visit the Foreign Office at Berlin, have a talk with Ministers of State and then create the1 impression In his talks with foreign niters that he was an emis sary of tho German Government. Erz berjer reported back to Berlin that Em peror Charles had told him that peace proposals would have to be made by the Central Powers within three or four months. In the meantime this plan lrould have to' bo kept secret. About three months later the German Reichs tag adopted Its resolution for a con ciliatory peace without annexations. 1 "At that time It was known that Erz berger knew something, .about Count Ciernln's confidential report" continues Count von Wedel. ''Later It became Mown that Erzbirger' had had aoopy of Czemln's report An Investigation waj undertaken at Vienna to find out how Erzberger had obtained the report The Investigation showed that there had not been any breach of confidence on the part of any Austrian official, but that Erzberger liad obtained the report in Austria (from the Emperor him eelfl), 'The Berlin Government was dis agreeably surprised when a Rhenish newspaper quite unconcernedly dls- tuswd the Czemln report It was noted that Erzberarer himself discussed the report at a mass meeting at Frank- lort. Thus the secret found Its way. to Paris. The 'secret ranort was discussed by a Paris papcrI" think the Tamp with apparent gratification.
