GREAT TROUBLE WIT
French Premier in an Interview With the Associataed Press For
sces War With the Headless Masses of the Stricken Nation
and Says War Is Over Only for Breathing Spell.
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
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.

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
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."
