She is forced to wear a gas mask to protect her from the death giving fumes. Aside from the fact that she Is part of
the gigantic war machinery ob France a bit of sentiment finds expression in the flowers whfth she wears pinned to
her working dress. They were given to her by a "poilu" who had Just left for the front. In all of the principal coun

GERMANY HAS WON,
(Continued From Page One) '
Rpfprrine- to the actual conditions
on the war fronts, the chancellor said
that the attacks made by the central
nnwera in the southeastern theatre
had frustrated the great plan of' the
entente to sever the connection or
Germany with the Orient by the sep
arate conquest of Turkey. Bulgaria
"On the whole, therefore," he said,
"we see isolated successes of our ene
mies on the Somme which cannot In
fluence the general situation. On the
other hand, we have the successful
repulse of all enemy attacks and the
frustration of the enemy's intentions
in the Balkans and the failure of his
plans. Thus the gigantic war is pro-p.eefllne-.
The war aims of our ene
mies are announced without disguise
nrt ran allow of no misinterpreation.
Their purpose is territorial coveteous-
ness and our destruction. ' They pro
pose to give ConstanUnople to the
Russians, Alsace-Lorraine to the
French. Trentino to the Italians and
Transvlvania to the Rumanians.
"Since the first day of the war we
have sought nothing but the defense
of our rights, our existence ana our
freedom. Therefore, we are able.
first and alone, toclare our readl

on Feb. 9, 1915, and repeatedly after

r.t -Premier Rriand's declaration that
the conclusion of peace today would
be a sign of weakness or that memory-
was dead? The entente continues
th war because it hopes to be able
to attain Utopian war aims. The lust
of conquest of our enemies Is respon
sible for the daily heaping mountains
The chancellor appealed to Pre
mier Briand to remember ' that the
last hopes of France were perishing
on- the "battlefield and Indignantly de
nied that the .German Emperor exer
cised his influence over the Russian
Emperor to prevent the development
of the Russians in the direction of
freedom. He denounced Great Brit

"The British leave no doubt," he
said, "as to what they wish to make
of trermany. Our existence as a na
tion is to be crushed. ' Militarily de
fenseless, economically crushed, boy
cotted -fry the world and condemned to
lasting sickliness that is the Germany
which England wants to see at ner
feet. Then, -when there is no more
German competition to be feared.
when France has been bled to death,
when all her allies are financially and
economically doing " slave work for
England, when the neutral European
world must submit to every British
order, every British blacklist, then.
upon an impotent Germany, the dream
of British world supremacy is to be
come a realty."
The chancellor said that he realized
the troubles of the people coincident
with the war and that he shared the
deep sorrow for the . fallen and mutilated.
I bow my head," he went on, "be

and men without distinction of rank
or class bear their sacrifices, united in
an ardent love for the" fatherland. Still

and brothers in the field withstand
the violent assaults of the enemy who.
superior in numbers, are fljrhtlng with
the utmost bravery. World history
human history has never 'before seen
The chancellor declared that ; the
German people again had an opportu
nity to show their appreciation of the
heroism of the army by subscribing to
t" a new war loans.- He asserted that
the nation firmly believed In sacrifice.
"I know we can also rely on the
fighters behind the front," he said, "to '
give all their available money to sup
port the gigantic work of our fighters
in the field. With clenched fists but
open hearts re will stand behlr '. them,
one man and one people.".
