accepting the proposal for
evacuation of occupied territories, the
German government lias started from'
the assumption that the procedure of
this evacuation und of
tions of an armistice should be left t
the judgment of the military advisers
and that the actual standard of
on both sides in the field has to form
the basis for arrangements
guarding this standard.
"The German government

German government protests
against the reproach of Illegal and in

against the .German people,
covering of a retreat destructions will
always be necessary, and they are car
ried out In so far as is permitted by
international law. The German troops
are under most strict instructions to
spare private property and to exercise
cure for the population to the best of
their ability. Where transgressions
occur In spite of these Instructions the
guilty are being punished.
"The German government further
denies that the German navy In sink
ing ships has ever purposely destroyed
lifeboats with their passengers. The
German government proposes with re
gard to all those charges that the facts
be cleared up by neutral commissions.
"In order to avoid anything that
might hamper the work of peaee the
German government has caused or
ders to be dispatched to all submarine
commanders precluding the torpedo
ing of passenger ships without, how
ever, for technical reasons, being able
to guarantee that these orders will
reach every single submarine at sen
before Its return.
"As a fundamental condition for
peace, the president prescribes the des
truction of evepy arbitrary power that
can separately, secretly and of its own
single choice disturb the peace of the
world. To this the German government
replies : *
"Hitherto the representation of the
people in the German empire has not
been endowed with an influence on the
formation of the government.
"The constitution did not provide
for a concurrence of representation of
the people of decisions In peace and
war. These conditions have just now
undergone a fundamental change. A
new government has been formed in
complete accordance with the wishes
(principle) of the representation of the
people, based on equal, universal, se
cret, direct franchise.
"The leaders of the great parties of
the reichstug are members of this gov
ernment. In the future no government
can take or continue in office without
possessing the confidence of a majority
^<>f the reichstag.
"The responsibility of the chancellor
vof the empire to the representation of
the people Is being legally developed
and safeguarded. The first net of the
new government has been to lay before

stltutlon of the empire so that the con

'The permanence of the new system
is. however, guaranteed not only by
constitutional safeguards, hut also by
the unshakable determination of the
German people whose vast majority
stands behind these reforms and de
mand their /merge-tlc continuance.
'The question of the president—with
whom he and the governments asso
ciated against Germany are dealing—
■ is, therefore, answered in a clear, un
equivocal manner by the statement
that the offer of peace and an armis
tice lias come from a government which
Is free from any arbitrary and Irres

approval of an overwhelming majority
of the German people.
