CHANGE CONSTITUTION TO END GERMAN AUTOCRACY Can the kaiser decree a change in the German government that will meet President Wilson's terms? Can he then abdicate and make the change effective? These questions were put by the World to Daniel Blumenthal. formerly mem ler of the reichstag and senator from Alsace-Lorraine. He gave the follow ing explanation : "Abdication can accomplish nothing. The kaiser may abdicate as king of Prussia and thus cease to be emperor, but under the laws of Prussia the crown prince would become king and emperor. If the crown prince should also quit his eldest son would succeed. "The constitution, adopted April 16, 1871, by the reichstag, and the federal council, merged the twenty-five Ger man states into a federation. The hereditary king of Prussia was named president and so head of the German empire, and was vested with autocratic power in respect to foreign relations and m other respects. j "The only way for Germany to end the autocracy would be to change the con stitution, which may be done by the reichstag and federal council by joint two-thirds vote. "One clause of the constitution reads: 'He (the emperor) shall represent the empire in all international relations, having sole power to declare war and to make peace in the name of the em pire.' "Erasure of that clause and substi tution of one providing that the im perial government shall be responsible to the reichstag would be a means of giving power to the people."
