Berlin, Nov. 30. (Via London)The
war situation was reviewed before the
Reichstag today by Count George F.
von'Hertlingr, the new imperial Geri
man chancellor. ' He declared that
Germany was ready to enter into
peace negotiations zi soon as the
Russian government sent representa
tives having full -powers to Berlin.
The chancellor said he hoped and
wished that the present efforts would
take definite shape and "bring us
German arms, the chancellor said,
have been uniformly successful and
the submarine warfare will reach the
aim intended fo.- it. He sard that the
ships sunk will exceed that of those
newly constructed. He praised the
army and navy and eulogized the
home population for its patience and
endurance under great privations. Po
litical reforms would be carried out,
hut the fundamental principles, of the
imperial constitution cannot and shall
not be changed. He said in part:
German Arms. Triumphant.
"We are approaching the end of the
year that has been full of far-reaching
and decisive events in many theaters
of theAvar. I am proud and thankful
to say that the arms of Germany and
her allies have been successful on al
most every occasion and everywhere."
- He retailed that the Flanders battle
had continued almost without inter
ruption since July and that the Brit
ish army was superior in number, and
that several French divisions had
taken fcart in the fight. Notwithstand
ing the loss of some village? and
farms, the German front there re
mained unshaken and the enemy 'was
as far as ever from his object of
reaching the Flemish coast to destroy
German U-boat bases. He added:
"Recognizing the failure .of, their
attacks in Flanders, the British are
now seeking near Cambrai a decisive
resultThe hope which Great Britain
placed upon the , wholesale, use
of tanks has not been fulfilled. They
lie1 destroyed on the battlefield by
successful German counter measures.
The initial British success was par
ried by the entrance of our reserves.
"The French also have had local
successes northeast of Soissons and
be'ore Verdun, but every strategical
exploitation of these has been pre
vented by the German army com
mand. Everyone remembers the
events in the east which led to the!
conquset of Riga and Jacobstadt
1 Iai Crushed Italy.
"The glorious advance of the arm
ies of the central powers in Italy
holds the world in suspense even to
day. Overwhelmingly difficult : tasks
have been accomplished there by the
fighting strength of the German and
Austro-Hungarian troops in their sur
prisingly rapid attack and penetration
of rough mountain territory,' Italy's
aamy has lost a considerable part of
its forces and half of its total war
ma'ter.'al. It also has lost stretches
of land which provided it with rich
supplies, It,has not yet been possi
ble t collect all the booty, calculated
in money value at thousands of mil
lions, of marks, which liar fallen into
o t hands.
"Further, the success of our victor
ies from the Isonzo to the Fiave is an
effective relief to our own western
front. In the same way this victory
also makes itself felt.it) Macedonia,
as the enemy now appears to be giv
ing voluntarily the slight success
which he obtained west of Lake

From the Sinai oeninsula the Brit-
isbarc operating against the Turkish
troops in Palestine! and have been
able to achieve certain initial suc
cesses there. These, however, have
no influence on the general war sit
uation from a military standpoint. In
the theater of war in Asia Minor and
in Irak the situation is unchanged."

war fleet had thoroughly fulfilled the

hopes and expectations placed in it,
the chancellor continued:
The hich seas fleet, whose con-
slant activity often has been veiled
from the public view, deserves the
thanks of the country. It has since
its glorious days of the Skaggcrak,
lately showp anew, after a long inter
val, in the capture of the islands of
Oesel, Dago and Moon, in typical
co-operation with the army, and in
its lately successful fight in the Ger
man bight in the 'North Sea against
a considerable superiority of forces,
its constant readiness for battle. As
a support and reserve it stands be
hind our submarine oats, .it protects
their places of support and opens out
a way for them into the open sea." '
Submarine Campaign. -.
The chancellor then ' reviewed the
submarine campaign, which, he said,
is the. only effective way of battling
the power of Germany's enemy and
the economic war forced on it. He
was hopeful of its success and said
that the allies were unable to, make
progress against it by their com
mandeering neutral ships or building
new ones. . .
Count von Hertlingr expressed the
wish that the territories formerly un
der Russian sway PoUnd, Lithuania
and Courland couldhave the right
of choosing their own governments
and could obtain that political form
which corresponds to their conditions
and culture.- He said that affairs in
this direction were still completely in
a state of uncertainty and that re
ports in the press tndicating that a
definite agreement' had" been reached
on one point were premature.
Papal Peace Note.
He refc.ed to G-ermany and its al
lies as having placed themselves on
the foundation of the papal peace note
ot last August and said that every
ground had been removed. for the
"foolish argument" that the object jf
its enemies vwas, to destroy German
militarism, which, was destroying the
peace of nations. He said , ..
"It has been shown where, in truth,
the peace-destroiing militarism can
be sought. The Italian ministen, Son
nino, Hn his speech, on. October. 26
expressly waived the thought of gen
eral disarmament and Premier Clem
enceau goes so far in cynicism as to
expressly shut, out. Germany and Austria-Hungary
from, tho peaceful com
munity of nations of the future when
right shall take the place of armed
force. Premier Lloyd George has de
clared distinctly that the aim of the
war is the destruction . of German
commerce and that the war must be
continued until this end is reached.
Indeed, the lust of conquest falsely
attributed to us is now placed before
the world through the publication of
secret treaties by the Kussian gov
ernment. , . . v.. v
"Our war aim from" the first day
was the defense of the fatherland and
the. inviolability of its territory, free
dom and ' independence of its eco
nomic life. On that account we could
greet joyfully the pope's peace ap
peal. The Bpirit in which the answer
to the pupal note was given still is
alive today, but so much the enemy
must admit this answer signifies no
license for the criminal lengthening
of the war.
"For the continuation of the terri
ble slaughter and the destruction of
irreplacable works of civilization and
for the mad, self-mangling of Europe
the' enemy alone bears the responsi
bility and will also have to bear the
consequences. This applies especially
to ionnino (Baron sonnino, Italian
minister of foreign affairs). If the
Italian authorities who drove into the
war unfortunate population of a beau
tiful land bound to us by thousand
fold memories had taken the hand of
peace held out by the pope the fright
ful defeat of their atfhies with all its
associated consequences would not
have taken place.
"May Italy's friends accept this a
a warning and lend an ear at last t -the
voice of reason and humanity."
In conclusion the 'chancellor sa!
that Germany's watchword must bv
"Wait! i Endure 1 1 Hold out I" The
speech was received with applause
from almost the whole house, only the
extreme . right and the extreme left

U.S. NEEDS SACRIFICE
SAYS SEC. WILSON
Refutes Charge of Capitalists'
Struggle; He Says That Em
ploye and Employer Have
Portland, Ore., Nov. 30. William
P. Wilson, secre'.ary of labor, in an
address before a large audience last
night emphasized the need of sacrifice
as the greatest need of the country in
the world war.
"If I were to compress into a single
sentence my belief of the greatest
need of our country, I would say that
it is the spirit of self-sacrifice for the
common good a sacrifice of our
pride, sacrifice of our prejudices, sac
rifice ot our suspicions against each
other, sacrifice of our material com
forts, sacrifice of our lives if need
be, in order that the democratic in
stitutions handed down to us by our
forefathers may be continued, unim
paired to our children, so that they
may work out their own destiny as
we haye been working out ours, unim
peded by the autocratic powers of
Europe, said Mr.,. Wilson.
Secretary "Wilson emphatically re
futed the' charge from unfriendly
sources that the war is a capitalists'
war and pointed out that the employer
and employe have a common inter
est in the conflict.
Because of this common interest,
he. urged .the. abandonment of indus
trial disputes until the war can be
brought to a successful termination.-
Secretary' Wilson and the members
of the federal mediation commission
will leave Friday morning for Puget
Sound. . . . , -; .
