Germany's Reply to Wilson Simply a
ltd Maneuvers
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"

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-
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
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

until the complete exhaustion of
