THE WASHINGTON TBIES. SUNDAY, OCTOBFK 13, 1918 (LLS GERMANY'S WORD WORTHLESS " IZ - "" Hev, Look Out Where You're Walking Copyright, 1118. tr th "Wheeler Syndicate. Inc. By Goldberg The allies .are exhorted to exact specific and rigorous guarantees from Germany by the authbr of "I Accuse" and 'The Crime." two books which have attracted much attention by the writer's treatment of the war. The author, himself a German oem oerat, la quoted at length by a cor Tespondent or the Petit Parlslen. ac cording to a dispatch yesterday to the French embassy. This Is what he says: The violation of Belgian neutrality, acknowledged by Bethmann Hollweg and lately by Hertllng. and the odious accusations against Belgium that she failed in her duty as a neutral are the things which weigh terribly on Ger many. As success did not cover her. crimes, the Germans have lost the con fidence of the world. Obstacle t Peace. "It appears to me, though, as an In surmountable obstacle to peace. There Is perhaps one way of removing this obstacle the humble and sincere con fession of our faults an act of con trition with no mental reservations. But none of the authorities have ever had the least comprehension of this duty. "Germany a harmless victim. Ger many falsely accused. Germany on whom war was Imposed. Germany fighting for her existence this Is all they have talked about, and kept re peating." The German writer then mentions all the crimes of Imperialistic Ger many, and warns the Allies of her maneuvres. He further says: "How could any one trust such vil lains, coming with a white flag to say to those they have attacked, to those who have suffered violence at their hands. "Trust us, let us be friends!" Kot Kaslly Restored. "No," he concludes, "confidence Is not so easily restored. It cannot be really exist unless It Is spontaneous.

This was the assertion today or Congressman Keating, of Colorado, who has charge In the House of the bill for a pension and retirement system for Government employes In the classified service. Mr. .Keating believes .the bill now pending, which was presented by hltn In the House and by Senator McKel lar in the Senate, will become a law at this session of Congress. Looks For Passage. "I look to see the Senate pass the bill within a few days." said Mr. Keating. "I expect to eee It taken up after that by the House and pass ed soon after election I have no doubt it has a majority in the nuuic . Congressman Keating and Senator McKellar will noiu uic.

The purpose will be to explain details of the measure to the Presl-.-.. ... itr hlit endorsement of the details, as well as his support in hastening the bill to enactment.
