Germany's Reply to Wilson Simply a ltd Maneuvers Continuation ot Hvnocr Regarding German peace maneuvers ' General P. M. G. Malleterre, the noted French military expert, under date of 1 October 26th, cabled the New York World from Paris as follows: Germany's reply to President Wilson ' was only a continuation, in hypocritical ' tone, of the maneuver to save her : armies in distress. I don't see how one can keep talking a1out it. There arc only two solutions: Either Ger ' many owns herself vanquished and she lis willing to capitulate and trust to the discretion of the Allies, or she is able to continue the struggle. In the latter case it is a matter of 'letting the cannon complete its work. We can come out of all this only by ithe complete disarmament of Germany, which is a matter of a very short time, I lclieve. In order to see the situation dearly, it will be well to compare the past with the present. Premier Clem- nnceau's declarations following the lib eration of Lille and of Flanders have been posted in France. Why should not the conditions of peace which the (Germans would have imposed on the -.vanquished, had conditions been revers 'cd. be posted in all the Allied countries? We cannot have any doubt of the fate which a victorious Germany would have meted out to France and her al lies had Germany been able to subjugate the world. I recall a version of the pro gram which Germany had arranged. There was to be annexation of Belgium. and occupation of our northern anL J eastern French provinces was to have been completed by the exile "en masse" . -11 1. 1 : -11 . i an me r 1 eiicii-speaKing lniiauuanis. i They were to be replaced by German: 1 soldierv. and bv "priori" Oprman fnmf-cl ies. That was to lie the most expedi tious way of Germanizing occupied ter- itory. In this program Germany was to lwe served by the repetition of the Alsace- Lorraine experience. Hence, in order to determine the con ditions of an armistice which Germanv requests, and to assure a peace which may carry guarantees for the future, we must not forcet the terms under which we French would have suffered in the event of German conquest in 1914. Now, more is wanTed. We must guard against all sentimentality. Justice must be implacable. Let us think of the dead; let us think of the ruins ; let us think of the necessary ex piations; let us think of the avoidance of the return of such murder of hu- ; which had defended the ccjast, ;has been pushed across the Dutjih -frontier and has allowed itself to be itsterned. We can only regret that Holland has considered it advisable to maintain the neutrality of the mouth of the Scheldt. England could have opposed this in 1914, for the treaties did not. authorize Holland thus to favor tfce siege of Ant werp, to the detriment of .Belgium and fl of the Allies. Jt is to be toped that a rectification of the frontier wj.ll shortly occur. German armies in Belgium apjK'.ar to be preparing for the evacuation oi ?.hat country. They still resist along fi,e Scheldt, but the Allied pressure be comes heavier steadily, and Ludendorff is obliged to send troops to the danger ous eastern sector. The battle around the Meuse is still a hard one. It will be equally hard in Lorraine. Strong opposition must be faced by the valiant American troops. But there is a big margin yet. and we may hope something will change very sfxm along the Lorraine front. The Germans are .expecting a blow. Reverting to the subject with which I began" this article, if it were for he German people to decide, I believe a complete downfall would be near. If the military chiefs hold the upper hand, one may expect that . the upper hand, one may expect that the war will con tinue, for the sake of German honor, until the complete exhaustion of strength and munitions.
