Midwelis Says Allies Are Seek*lag Conquest and. CzerninDrgesNonorable End of War


Statements Blaming Centlnaanet. of War on Entanta Desire for

Conquest—French 8scr*tDebate.

Berlin.—For the first time In rafnyweeks the Imperial German Chancel-lor and (he Autlro-Hungarian ForeignMinister summoned the newspapercorrespondent* and each spoke free-ly and at lenctb on Uielr conceptionof tbe alms' of the Entente Alliesand the alms of MM Central Powersregarding the termination of tbe war.

It-la an Incident of striking signifi-cance that these Interviews are .givenpublicity simultaneously and that they

' agree In tbe statements that the Cen-tral Powers will consent to a peacewithout conquest, but otherwise willtight to the last.

Dr. George Mlcbsells, the GermanImperial Chancellor, made the follow-

' Ing declaration: •"The speech of David Lloyd George,

• the British Premier, at Queens, Hall.London, and the recent debate In theBritish House of Commons'-again«a?e proved with Indisputable clear-ness that Great Britain does not"do-

'sire peace by agreement and under-standing,'imt only a conclusion of.the.war which the enslavement of Ger-many to 'the arbitrary violence olour enemies.'


London.—According to a fteuterdespatch from Zurich, Msthlas En-

Peace On/y When 'f-^'^V-' t Germany is Beaten

WASHINOTON.—"When Germany, acknowledging - Us . militarybroken, asks tbe Entente and the United States for their

peace terms the peace talk from Berlin and Vienna will be given arespectful hearing, fio long; as Berlin speaks of peace terms sheIs forced to accept the discussion of peace' will not be permitted toenter Into the councils of the United States and the Entente,"

This statement summarises, authoritatively the present positionof the nations championing the cause of democracy against Prus-sian militarism. It is not subject to change.

Interviews given'out by the German Imperial Chancellor andby the Austro-Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs advocating invague terms peace by understanding, and accusing' the EntenteAllies of-intending to prosecute a war of conquest are regarded bytbe Administration simply In the light of another familiar diplomatictrick by the Teutonic Powers. Tbe State Department refuses flatlyto plsce the slightest faltb In this peace propaganda, and refuses

^ tv* accept the bait which Germany offers. The view's- held in En- .5 tente capitals harmonize with thjo views in; Washington,"' ' •* Secretary Lansing's - speech is' taken as a complete answer In .

stating that peace can come only when the united force of theworld's democracies bas overthrown the German military system.

The cardinal fact that Germany wants peace and needs peace ]bsdly Is admitted, but It is realized. tbst Berlin Is only Interested ;

r In a peace "made In-Gtrmany." so far as its terms are concerned."• Realizing that-such terms never will be entertslned by tbe Entente

and the. United States, the German Government Is- seeking simplyto use vsgue talk of peace as a means of quieting Its people at homeand causing If possible dissension .In the allied countries of the

-Entente, especially Russia.



Lustre-Germans Win Way Across theRiver Zbrocx and Pass ' GallelsnFrontier and Invade Bukowlna.

London.—Apparently the turn In thetide of retroat by tho Russians In EaBtGallcla Is beginning. On several sec-tors tho loyal troop's have halted andnow aro facing'the AustroOermanBand offorlng resistance na best theycan with their badly depleted forces

teUIll JtLOnot been successful In holding

to tbe Zuricher Nachrlchten:"If I could talk with Llovd Oeor—

(the British Prime Minister) or Mr.Balfoar (British Foreign Secretary) wecould In a few. hours reach an understanding which would enable officialpeace negotiations to commence."

Herr Erzberger. who bas taken" aprominent part with respect' to peacedaring the last months, asserts thatDr. Mlrhaells. the Imperial' GermanChancellor, la. a peace Chancellor.


Washington.—It Is Tory apparent' toobservers In Washington that theworld is in for another discussion of

' peace between the warring nations.Evidence Is accumulating that the agi-tation in Washington for .greater par-

'llamentary {freedom has stirred allthe well-knoSwn advocates' of bringingtbe war to,an end without delay, andgot them again to- hoping for an end-Ing of hostilities.

. Officials here -have become con-vinced that Germany now knows Itis- useless to ask her enemies to dis-cuss a peace that admits no punish-ment for German outrages againsthumanity, and will seek on every oc-casion to create tbe impression thatthe Allies.are bent on a war of con-quest, hoping by this means to keep

d i li

pserve to ehow that the spirit of loyaltyIs still alive In many or the men ofGeneral Kornlloff's contingents, andthat It Is not their purpose to sun-en-der further, terrain without a contest.

One of the main attempts of the Ruaslans to hold back the enemy has beenon the heights eaat of the RiverZbrocx, which flows along tba borderbetween Gallcla anddespite the resistance

Russia, butoffered they

qpeace discussion alive.

The staknents of Count Czernln.who speaks for Emperor Charles, carrythe impression that Austria-Hungaryis sincerely anxious to bring ahout aneadlr; or the war. on an; terms H canobtain from the Entente.

A Mysterious Absence.Before' we left Dresden, however, I

met the crown princess in one of thecorridors. It was nine o'clock In themorning. She wore her riding-habit,having just come In from her morningcanter. °

-"Well, count 1" she laughed. "Soyon are leaving us unexpectedly 1 Ishall be coming to pay another visit toPotsdam soon. . The emperor Invited*e-ta»t-nIght-Au-revolrl?__

. An Arlgry Emperor.Three days later an Incident occur-

red which cuysed me,a good deal ofthought, nnd, truth to tell, mystifiedme. considerably. . -

That somewhat Indiscreet.Journal,the Milltacr Wochenbtntt had pub-lished, a statement to the effect thatFriedrlch-August of Saxony and. thehandsome Louisa had had a violentquarrel, a fact which caused a greatdeal of gossip throughout court cir-cles. ' ' . - ' . . '• '•' :

Old Vqn Donaus'tauf, who et thattime,was master of the ceremonies atthe emperor's court, busied himself byspreading strange scandals regarding.the Crown Princess Louisa. There-fore,'in the circ*mstances. It struckme as strange that her highness shouldhave been invited to the puritanicaland hypocritical circle at Potsdam. .

That afternoon, soon" after theguard had been changed, I chanced tobe writing In my room,-which over-looked the. big central courtyard^wbenI beard the guard suddenly turn outin great commotion,.by which I knewthat his majesty had - suddenly re-turned from Hubertusstock.

Ten minutes later my telephonerang, and, passing the sentries, I wentby order to bis majesty's study, thatchamber of plots and. secrets, bungwith its faded green silk damask,-Itsfurniture covered with the same mate-rial, and its net curtains at the win-dows threaded with ribbons of thesame shade. - '

The moment I entered the emperor'scountenance showed me that he'waij

I velopos used by the emperor for hisI private correspondence. I saw It hud

been sealed In black by his own hand.Then,> as. he handed it to me, he said:

"Go to Dresden as quickly as pos-sible and obtain a reply to-this."

I clicked" my heels together,' and,saluting, left upon roy secret missionto tbe Saxon court.

The letter was addressed to BaronGeorg von Mettsch at Dresden.

Next day^wjienj presented i t to thelClIiln controller of tbe household.

promised visit to tbe empress at theNeues Palais in July.

At the. time of her arrival the em-peror had left suddenly and gone awayto Huoertusstock. When anything un-usual upset him he always went there.I overheard him the day before his de-parture shouting to Lohleln as I passedalong one of the corridors. The, Judi-cial councilor seemed to be trying topacify him, but apparently entirelywithout avail.

"You* are as sly as all the rest I"I beard thCepperor declare in thatshrill, high-pitched tone which alwaysdenotes his anger. "I'll bear none ofUT-HO excuses. I want'no fawning,no Jew-Juggling^'•' J_ <"•=*, The next \ heard was that the kaiserbad. left.for.'tiat.lonely retreat.to

him, and stood watching the emperoras .the latter impatiently paced theroom." • " - . . - . . .

I saluted, awaiting orders In silence,but so preoccupied was bis majestythat he. did not notice my presence,but continued his outburst of furiouswrath. "Only see what Von Hoens-broech has reported!" he cried. "Iam being made a laughing-stock—andyou know It,'Lohleln I It has beensaid o f us that a woman, a whim, ora word will today raise any personto high rank, in our empire!

Suddenly he realized that I waspresent and hesitated. Neit1 secondboth his tone and his manner changed.

"Heltzendorff—I—I—wish you to goto. Dresden and take a private letter..It will be ready in half on hour. -Saynothing to anyone concerning your de-parture, but report to me here at fouro'clock.'A Secret Mission to ths Saxon Court

As commanded, I reported, but thekaiser was with the empress, who. Inone of her^ private apartments, washolding petit cercle, the .PrincessLouisa being present Indeed, a s 1 en-tered that seml-drcular. salon thekaiser was. standing astride 'before.Louisa's chair, laughing goyly withher.

The Crown Princes* Calls.Next day we were f II back at the

Berlin Sehloss. I During'the mornlngihis majesty Inspected the; Berlin gar-rison In the Tempelhofer Feld, andthe Princess Louisa rode with him.That same afternoon, while I was{busy' writing In the long room al-lotted to me In tbe Berlin Sehloss, herimperJaLhlkhriess. tomy.surprise, en-tered,-closing the^door quietly afterher. ^

"Why do you not admit It?" sheasked quickly.

"Princess, If the emperor gives meorders to preserve secrecy, then.lt ismy duty .to obey," I said.' 1 know," she answered, and then Irealized how upset and nervous sheseemed. "But Von Metzsch hates me,and has put about all sorts of scandal-bus, reports concerning me. Ah Icount," she sighed, "you do not knowhow very unhappy I am—bow I am

And I knew' that the Unfortunateprincess was defending her reputation,'which her enemies at the court ofSaxony had torn to shreds.

"No woman ever admits the truth,of'course," sneered the emperor. "Iconsider you a disgrace to the Dresdencourt- '

"So this Is the manner In which youopenly Insult your guests I" was theprincess' retort' "You, who believeyourself .the Idol of jour .people*, now-|exhibit yourself Ini your true light as**i9 trffdjiwr of » rfafeniiniMMjromani^

| unfortunately the latter refuses to ad-mit any affection for Louisa. Gironungrily declared his Intention to leaveDresden, bemuse of Von FriUch'J aug-*gestton.

She has done >o,but to no avail, and Olron left forBrussels tonight May I be permittedto come to discuss with your majestya furthpr elaboration of the plans?—:Von Metmch."-

The emperor read tbe secret mes-sage twice.

'•We go to Erfurt tomorrow, do wenot?" bo said. "Telegraph In cipherto Von Metzsch to meet-us there to-morrow evening at seven. And -de-stroy that message," he added.

I obeyed his orders, and afterwardcontinued, to deal with the state pa-pers, much enlightened by the newstransmitted by the emperor's creature.

I confess that I felt the. deepestsympathy for the helpless victim. ' Attho Sehloss,;high above the old-worldtown of Erfurt, Von Metzsch had. along conference with the emperor, butI was unable to overbear any'word ofIt. All I know Is that the controllerof the Saxon household left Erfurt forDresden by special train at midnight

"But your Imperial highness has. alsomany friends, of whom, I hope I may.be permitted to number myself."

**Aht It is extremely good of youto say that—very good. If you reallyare my friend, then you can help me.Ton are In a position' to watch anddiscover what is In progress^-the rea-son the emperor exchanges those con-stant confidences with Von Metzsch,the man who twisted my husbandaround his little finger,'and who has,,with my lady-of-the-bedcbamber, Frauvon Fritsch, already poisoned'his mindagainst me. Ah I you have no, Ideabow. much 1 have suffered 1"

She seemed on the verge of a nerv-ous crisis, for. I saw that In her fineeyes stood the light of unshed tears,and I confess I was much'puzzled,for I bad certainly believed, up to thatmoment, that she was on excellentterms with her husband.

"But surely bis highness, the crownprince of Saxony, does not believe anyof those wicked reportar I said.

"AhI Then.you have beard. Of

"No, no. Calm yourself, princess!"I urged, sympathetically. "I am atleast your friend, and wULect as such,should occasion arise." J?

"Ah I" she exclaimed In a low voice."I fear I shall require the assistanceof a friend very soon. Do you recol-lect my broken pearlsT*

"Bosh I Ton say that because; youknow that.tho statements are true I"

"You lie I" she cried fiercely. "Theyare not true. You icannot prove them,"

''Very well," answered the emperorln.Uiat tdne of cold determination thatI knew too well. "I will prove thecharges "to my entire satisfaction."Words That tha Kalsar Would Nsvtr

Forgive.I was startled at the manner In

which the princess had dared to callthe emperor, a liar. . Surely nobodyhad ever done so before.

I drew a long breath, for as I creptnway unseen I recollected the kaiser'sunrelenting vindlctlveness.

Poor princess! I knew that the redtalons of tbe Hohenzollern eagle wouldsooner or later be laid heavily uponher.

She left Berlin t w hours later, buthalf an hour before her departure Ifound a hurriedly scribbled note uponmy table explaining that she bod had"a few unpleasant words With the em-peror," and that she was leaving forDresden a day earlier than bad beenarranged. ,

A fortnight passed. Twice Baronvon Metzsch came to Potsdam, andwas on each occasion alosely closetedwith the- emperorr ar weH-as-bavlngfrequent consultations with JudicialCouncilor Lohleln. I. had strong sus-picion that the oonsplracy against thelively daughter of the Hapsburgs wasstill'in progress, for I felt assured thatthe kaiser would .never forgive thosewords of defiance from a woman's lips,and that his vengeance, slow and sub-tle-, would assuredly fall upon her.

I did not know at the time—not, In-deed, until fully three years latcjyhow the actions dr Von Metzsch,.whowas a creature of the kaiser, bad fromthe first been Instigated by.the all-highest, who, from the very day of theprincess' marriage had, notwithstand-ing his .'apparent gracionsness towardher, determined that a : Hapsburgshould never become queen of Saxony.

For that reason, namely, becausethe emperor In his overweening vanitybelieved himself to be the heaven-sentruler of the destinies of the German em-pire, was much opposed to/an Austrianprincess as a potential queen at Dres-den,"and had set himself the task to ruinthe poor woman's life and love and toarouse such a scandal cohcerningJher.

A'fresh light however, was thrownupon' what I afterward realized to bean astounding conspiracy by the re-ceipt of a cipher message bite one No-vember, night at Potsdam, I was atwork alone with the emperor In thepale green upstairs room, reading andplacing before him a. number of statedocuments <o which he scrawled hisscrlbbly signature,.when,the telegramwas brought ,

Tbe princess had left Dresden! ' ''Three days later, on December 0,

She was, no-doubt In deadly fearof being sent to a living tomb, so thather mouth should be closed forever.And seeing herself surrounded by ene-mies and spies on every hand—foreven' her .brother Leopold, with whomshe had traveled to Switzerland, nowrefused to assist her—she adopted theonly-method.of further escape that atthe moment presented Itself..

but wasn't overwhelmed at all as hehad been by the'other.

"It's not quite so much your style,is It? Not drive enough?"

"It Isn't for me," said Rose. "It'sfor'Edna Larson to wear In that 'AllAlone' number for the sextette."

Rose unpinned her veil and, to-hissurprise, because, of course she. wasgoing In a minute, put it Into her ulsterpocket'.
