Promise Not Enough. I "How could the government of France have been satisfied with the German promise to withdraw the troops when order had been restored? (Neither for reparations nor for the delivery of the war-guilty, nor for coal, have the allies received the stipulated satisfaction. "The question could be asked when the British government,- which no douty has not measured the danger of these systematic violations, would step in the path of concessions. France, in any case, was obliged to say: 'That Is enough.' Need for Unity. "The French government is no less convinced than the English govern ment of the essential necessity of the maintaing unity of the allies for the application of the treaty with Ger many. This close concert of Franco and England appears to France equal ly Indispensable for the equitable so lution of the vast problems -which are presented at this moment in the world in Russia, the Baltic, Asia Mi nor and all the Balkans." The note closes with assurance that the French government, for the pro-1 motion of these ends declares itself1 entirely disposed, before acting, to be1 assured of the consent of the allies in all inter-allied questions which the execution of the treaty raises. 1 I Situation Better. 1 LONDON.
