This statement aroused a storm of applause from all of the members, Re ferring to the Flemish question. King Albert said: ?The necessity of a fruitful union demands, the sincere collaboration of all citizens of the same country with out distinction of origin or language. In this domain of language the strict est equality and the most absolute jus tice will preside over the elaboration of projects which the government will submit to the national representa tatives. ...

Germany may be on the verge of a great revolution and such government as it has would be powerless to main tain or restore order if It had no ' armed forces at its disposal, if then what is left of the German army still possesses cohesion and discipline it : may do Germany and the world a serv ice in preserving a territory Inhabited ; by 70,000,000 from anarchy.
