(Ar j tide 227 'publicly arraigns Willian II, j i of Germany, for a supreme offense ! against international morality and the ; sanctity of treaties; and declares the ' allied and associated power will ad-1 i dress a request to The Netherlands' government for his surrender in order ' that he may be placed on .trial'). Demand Is Official ' "Consequently the powers address to the government of The Netherlands l an official demand to deliver into their hands William of Hohenzollern, for ' mer emperor of Germany, in order j that he may be judged. "Individuals residing in Germany ; against whom the allied and associat ' cd powers have brought charges are to be delivered to them under article - 228 of the peace treaty and the former emperor, if he had remained in Ger many, would ha've been delivered un ' der the same conditions by the Ger man government. V Crimes Are Known "The Netherlands' government is conversant with the Incontrovertible reasons and imperious act that pre ' meditated violations of international ' ' codes as well as systematic disregard $ ' of the most sacred rules and rights of tuitions should receive as regards everyone, including the highest placed ?. personalities, special punishment pro- vided by the peace congress. The .; powers "briefly recall, among so many crimes, the cynical violation of Hie neutrality of Belgium and Luxemburg. I the barbarous and pitiless system of j hostages, deportation en masse, t lie j carrying off of young girls from the' i city of Lille who were torn from I their families and delivered defense less to the worst promiscuity; the sy-' ;- tematic devastation of entire regions : without military utility; the submar : ine war without restriction, including inhuman abandonment of victims on the high seas and innumerable acts against non-combatants, committed by German authority in violation of the laws of war. j Kaiser Responsible I . "Responsibility at least moral for all 9gf these acts reaches up to the supreme C head who ordered them, or made abus ive use of his full powers to infringe ; or to allow infringement upon the 1 ; most sacred regulations of human con j - science. ' i ; 'The powers cannot conceive that the government of The Netherlands can regard with less reprobation than ; themselves the immense responsibility : ..of the former emperor. i "Holland would not fulfill her inter i national duty if she refused to asso 1 clattf herself with other nationals as ! far as her means nllow in undertak ing, or at least not. hindering, chastize ment of the crimes committed. I "In addressing this demand to the ' Duch government, the powers delieve , It their duty to emphasize Its special character. It is their duty to insure the execution of article 227 without ! allowing themselves to be stopped by arguments, because it is not a ques- lion of a public accusation with jurldi ' cial character as regards its basis, but an an act of high international policv imposed by tho universal con- science, in which legal forms have i beea nrovIled solely to assure to the S accused such guarantees as were 1 never beforo recognized in public laws. jr Praise of Holland f "The powers are convinced Holland, ji ' 9 6 & 4 NEW WORLD REPUBLICS TALK FINANCE I New French Cabinet Chosen : : PREMIER MILLERMD REliESOWTl FORMER MUSTERS Captain Andre Tardieu Refus es to Retain Portfolio In New Body i CLEMENCEAU RETIRES TO PRIVATE LIFE President Poincare Will Sign Decree of Nomination Today It Is Expevted PARIS.
