on Return from Visit to
Paris, Dec. 1. "The I'nited .Slates

Gen. Taufflleb, who has Just returned
from America, Jn his report to the
senate committee on foreign affair
ha tells of his warm welcome In oil
parte of tho country, "even in Mil
waukee," to quote the general.
(Jen. Taufflieb is senator from the
Has Khin. He regrets having found
the I'nited States In complete Ignor
ance of the situation in France. Ik
was pained to find that the neds of
the devastated regions and the finan
cial state of France are known to
".""ranee's militarism is greatly crit
icized. There is no permanent mili
tary system in America," continues
the general, "and It is certain that
the Washington conference has left
a bad impression.
"All this has been used against
us by Herman propagandists, and
there is no propaganda, service main
tained by France In America. The German-Americans
have joined with the
Irish. The result is a strong cam
paign in favor of the Independence of
Alsace and Lorraine. My presence as
senator from Alsace and my hearty
protests against such propaganda had
made a good impression.
"Tehere is but one tiling to do to
counteract this situation, and that is
the founding of a bureau of propa
ganda in the Culled States. The of
fice should be accurately Informed
that it may anwr officially all iues
tions asked. There should also be a
semi official office for the information
of the press."

London, Dec. !.- (Hy A. P.b-The
Germans are actively planning a war
of revenge, chiefly against France,
for which purpose they have con
cluded a secret military agreement
with Itussla, Is the main point of a
"memorandum by a t"'fon In close
touch with tho best Informed German
circles in Ib-rlln and Munich," com
municated to tho Dally Mall, which
display It under big headlines.
The paper claims to have made ex
haustive inquiries in Germany, Lon

accuracy, with the result, the, Mall
says, that It has been very largely

The memorandum particularize
with respect to alleged arrangements
to enable Germany to utilize Russia'
resources, Including complete Internal
reorganization, which will make Una
la capable of supporting both Itself
and Germany, so that Germany may
Ignore any sea blockade.
It say that German armament firms
will establish factories In Russia,
whose armies will be equipped thereby,
and submarine and mine layers will
be built In Russian dockyard under
German guidance and manned by Kus

Poland is to be crushed and annexed

The Mall claJms that It inquiries
regarding the memorandum have
elicited the fact that 600 German of
ficer are now In Moscow carrying out
tho conditions of the secret agreement;
that many engineer from Krupps
have begun the reorganization of Rus
sian munitions works, while German
engineers are also reconditioning the
Russian railroads to the Polish front.
Proof, says the Mail, has been ob
