PARIS. Feb. 10. Stephen I'ichon.
the French forden minister. In hi.-
wttkly talk to the foreign newspaper
correspondents, spoke mainly of
Russia, particularly on the situation
resulting from the Moscow soviet
government's acceptance of the invi
tation to the Princes' Islands con
ference. Pichon discouraged the idea
that such a conference will really be
held. He pointed out that the iues
sase from the soviet government had
not replied to the imitation.
It was not the undeistandin.tr. h?
said, that the representatives of the
entente should do more than this to
hrini; the Russians, together and he
declared that thtr was no purpose
of entering into negotiations with
the bolshevik government.
To do so, M. pichon said, would
be to duourape the bolsheviki to
declare to their people that the allien
were completely beaten and at their
mercy. An attempt to secure an
agreement to recognize the outstand
ing Russian foreipn debt, M. Cichon
contended wouhl be heralded as es
tablishing the truth of the soviet
claim that the allies were moved on
ly by capitalism at first.
Only One Itiiviun Taction.
French members of the Prinki
pomm had been named it was true.
Now it appeared there was no other
Russian faition but that of Moscow
that had expected an invitation to
attend th" conference by, Feb. ir.
the date originally set for the meet
ing. It would !. 1'ctttr. he s.i 1. not to
po at all. The latente commission
would not willingly confer alone
with the Soviets.
Concerning the possibility that
the soviet povernment mUnt asree
to pay its foreign .lebt, M. pichon
said that of al the ?roernments it
was the least able t undertake this
task, which would require the en
tire energy anil strength of an or
ganized Russian government operat
ing in peare time.
In conclusion the minister -air,
that he did not rfgan'. the newly cre-
ated supreme tconcmic council a?
limiting Marshal Fcn.h authority. He
thought it woulj constitute an in
valuable aid to the war council in
relieving it of a Oc-a of non-military
PARIS. Feb. 10. That the Ger
mans, while apparently defeated,
have come out of the war far better
off commercially than France, the
apparent victor, is the declaration of
Georces Clemenceau. the French
premier, in an interview today. In
the Interview he siys that the pur
pose of the enemy "was not purely
a dream of military domination on
the part of Germany. It was a defi
nite, calculated conspiracy to ex
terminate France, as well industrial
ly and commercially, as in a mili
After pointing out how the nature
f the war loans and the industrial
situation differed in France and
Germany, the premier went on,
"Industrially and commercially, as
between France and Prussia for the
present, the victory is with the
Although Germany has been beat
en militarily and had been larpely
disarmed, there still remained, the
pre mier pointed out, "a chaotic but
fruitful Russia from which great
help may be drawn by the Teutons."
There would be danprer, he thought,
of a "reopening of the military de
bate, if it were not for the assurance
Pres't Wilson had voiced recently
that whenever France or any other
free people was menaced the whole
world would be ready to vindicate
In the society of nations, said the
premier, each nation must be will
ing to renounce its traditional aloof
ness and be willing to employ the
national strength outside its, own
country, both in war and peace.
PHAISKS IIIXP OF
Premier Clemenceau warmly
praised the help the American troops
had given In winning the war for
democracy and expressed disbelief
that there was a man in the Ameri
can army of occupation who regret
ted that he had "fough on the side
of the freedom" because he had
found more creature comforts in
Germany than in France.
"I lived in the United States in
my young and formative days," said
remier Clemenceau. "Perhaps I
may be indulged to say a few words
to our allies on the other side of the
Atlantic. Not by way of advice or
propaganda, but frankly, as friend
"The friendship between our peo
ples which has subsisted for a cen
tury and a half, i a very beautiful
thing. The like of it has never ex
isted for the. same length of time
between any other two peoples. This
cordially cemented by our contact
during the war, must endure in
closer measure hereafter. To this
end our minds must meet.
A M I : H I CVS I : TI t. X CK
"The entrance of America into the
great war was full of dramatic in
terest. The application of national
wide conscription without the slight
est disturbance, the universal self
denial to supply us with food and
all our requirements, the unity of
purpose and the amazing energy of
110.000.0nn of peopleof so varying
and complex a character, challenged
our admiration ami gratitude In
such fashion as no one but our
selves can know.
"And the way the Americans
fouerht' Nothing could have been
finer, inspired by the holiest ideal.
I may say transfigured, they entered
upon their task with all the deter
mination, all the fervor, all the
spiritual purpose of the edd time
crusaders. They did work.
"And now the war is won. The
world H made safe for democracy,
for life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness, as Jefferson s:id in the
American Declaration of Independ
ence, and the future Is before.
What bis it In stor?
INFLATIONS WITH AKMV
"Throuch the war our relations
with the American army have been
most cordial and your treasury of
ficials will assure you. I am sure, that
there has always been a spirit of
generosity on both sides. Any sug
gestion that we have asked payment
for trenches or the bnrial places of
your brave soldiers is atrocious. For
all future ages the graves of Ameri
can soldiers will he in the tender
and sacred keeping1 of our rrateful
people. I have s.aid that the war is
won. It would perhaps be more ac
curate to say that there is a lull In
the storm. At least it is as well to
face squarelv all the possibilities.
"Recent disclosures have enabled
us to look deeper into the purposes
of the enemy than we could hereto
fore. Tt was not p irely a ttream of
military domination on the part of
Germany. It was a definite, calcu
lated conspiracy to exterminate
France, as well industrially and
commercially as in a military sense.
Tn thi effort the German mankers
and manufacturers joined their gen
eral staff. Th exposures of Dr.
Muehlon of the Krupp works and
of Kurt Eisner at the Derne social
ist conference make this clear.

"And this fact explains many of
the activities of the German army as
we were not able to understand. We
can now see why they stole the machinery-
from our factories, why they
destroyed the coa! mines of IV-ns.
why th're w.n all the wanton de
vastation of French territory, even
when they were in retreat It was
thought to be a part of their tactics
of military fr'.trhtfulness. Instead.
we can se now that it was- a pan. of
their deliberate commercial design.
"And in this phase of their war
making effort they have not been
a lthogther unsuccessful. The in
dustrial lif'- of France has been so
wrecked that it resusiivitlon is most
difficult, while by reason of her mil
itary surrender Germany has been
able to save her factories, intact ?.nd

Ion), the (itrman war debt is al
most wholly a debt to her own peo
ple, easily repudiated, while the
debt of France is one which must b?
paid. Here again the war has
proved something like a pyrrhic vic
tory for France.
"The French fortune invested
abroad betöre the war was large.
Some fifty or sixy billions (francs)
of French tock. What has become
of that financially? The best we can
hope for is that payments on about
two-thirds of It may be considered
as simply eleferred; that the im
mense sum accumulated by French
thrift and loaned abroad will be col
"If our national debts were duo
only to our own people the problems
would not be so dRhcult, because we
would not the n have to consider the
sending out of the country of great
sums at a disadvantageous rate of
exchange. The money collected
from the French people for interests
on the national loans would be dis
tributed among the French people
unequally perhaps, but nevertheless
the interest payments would remain
in the country to be used partly for
reconstruction and as capital for
the jevelopment of our industrial
"Even as to the military trlumps
over Germany there is a situation
not altogether without disquieting
features for France. It is quite
true that the allies have taken the
German navy and in large measure
have disarmed the enemy. Out
there remains a chaotic yet fruitful
Russia from which rreat help may
he drawn by the Teutons.
