WARMLY PRAISES THE VIRTUES OF THE AMERICANS IN FRANC! The Premier Expresses Heartfelt Thanks for the Glorious Way in Which the United States Had Come to the Rescue of the Civ ilized World and Had Shed Blood to Save Democracy. Paris, Feb. 9. (By Associated PPress). Premier Clemen ceau in an interview with the Associated Press today declared: "While I have said the war has been won, it would perhaps bo more accurate to say there is a lull in the storm. "Although Germany has been beaten in a military way and largely disarmed, there still remains," the premier pointed out, "The chaotic, but fruitful Russia, from which groat help may be drawn by the Teutons. In the Society of Nations, the premier said, each nation must be willing to renounce traditional aloofness, and employ force out side their own country. The premier pointed out the difficulty of Prance in meeting debts owed abroad, when her creditors. Amer ica and Russia, had stopped payment. Premier Clemenceau warmly praised the help tha American troops had gi.rcn in winning the war for democracy, and ex pdesscd his disbelief that there was a man in the American army of ricc'Tt:on, who regretted he had "f outfit on the side of free dom," because he had found more creature comforts in Germany than in France. There would be danger, he thought, of "reopening a military debate, but for the assurance President Wilson had v :'" I recent ly that whenever France or any other free people wa menaced. the whole world would be ready to vindicate its liberty." I Clemenceau continued, "Recent disclosures have enabled us to ' look deeper into the purposes'of the enemy than we could hereto fore. It was not purely a dream of military domination on.the part of Prussia, it was a definite, calculated conspiracy to exterminate France industrially and commercially as well as in a military sense. In these efforts, German bankers and manufacturers joined their general staff. The exposures of Dr. Muchlon, of the Krupp works, and of Kurteisner, at the Berne socialist conference, make this clear. This fact explains many activities of the German army, which we were not able to understand. We can now see why they stole machinery from our factories, why they destroyed the coal mines of Lens, why there wa3 all the wanton devastation of French ter- ritory, even when they were in Paris Feb. 0. (Havas). The supreme war council is report ed to have reached a decision at yesterday's meeting, finding it necessary to impose more severe conditions on Germany for a re newal of the armistice because of Germany's attitude towards the fulfillment of its obligations. Decisions are also said to have been reached for the conditions .governing German demobilization, and the production of plants, formerly engaged in making war material. (By The Associated Press.) Paris, Feb. 9- "Tho most im portant part of the preliminary work cf establishing a society of nations has been concluded," said Professor Ferdinand Larnaude, dean of the law faculty of the University of Paris, and with Leon Bourgeois, French delegate on the commission on a society of nations, in discussing the work of the commission today. "We have reached the fourteenth article," he continued, "and we expect to conclude preliminary dis cussions early next week. The ar ticles which have been adopted deal with the desire of the society to prevent future wars. What re mains to be investigated concerns international transportation, com merce and financial affairs, and we expect the delegates to agree promptly." When asked if the departure of President Wilson, Premier Lloyd George, and Premier Orlando would affect the continuance of the commission's work. Professor Larnaude replied: "No, the work will go on. Colonel House will, represent America on the commit (ion, Lord Robert Cecil will ap pear for Great Britain and Pro fessor Uhilloga will tak the place of Premier Orlando of Italy."
