Anruln? on this .basis the ctTancol-
lor entered Into a long discussion of
the question to prove that the burden
of responsibility sksted dn Germany's
foes. T
The chancellor's statement regard
ing the question of a peace leaguo fol
lows: Cry for Peace.
"If at and after the end of the war
the world will only become fully con
scious of the horrifying destruction
of life and property, then through tho
whole of humanity there will Ting out
a cry for peaceful arrangements and
understandings whloh, as far as It Is
within human power, will avoid tho
return of such a monstrous catastro

so Justllled that it must lead to some
"Germany will honestly co-operate

laborate for Its possible realization.
This all the more If tho war, as wo
ezpoct and trust, shall Create political
conditions that do full justice to the
free development of all nations, of
small as well us great nations.
'Then the principle of justice and
free development, not only on the
Continent but also on the seas, must
be made valid. This, to be sure. Lord
Grey did not mention."
Peculiar Character.
The chancellor pointed out that
Viscount Grey'B Ideas In regard to
International guarantees of peace
seemed to posxess pe'cullar charac
ter. In that thev took into considera
tion only British wants. Neutrals,
which during the war -d to acceot in
silence British domination of tho
neas, were to form a union after the
war, when, England hopes, she will
have conquered Germanv In order to
guarantee that the British plans will
prevail under the new conditions.
The Chancellor said It was known
on reliable authority that in 1915
Great Britain and France nromlned to
Ilussla dictatorial domination of Con
stantinople, the Bosporus and the
west shore of, the Dardanelles, with
the hinterland, and that Aijta Minor
should be divided among the entente
These plans, he continued, probably
wero of Interest for neutrals, who
were expected to iruarantee this or
der of things. The British government,
lie asserted, had kept silent in regard
to these plans. In spite of questions
asked In Parliament.
