By th* Associated Press  STRASSBOURG, Wee!., Oct. 22.— The conspiracy for a revolt in Alsace-Lorraine, having for its object the establishment of a republic here, is assuming greater proportions than at first anticipated.

The    funds    were    sent to  him    from Baden-Baden, it    is said.  Acting as intermediary between the Berlin foreign office and the conspirators here, according to Koess-ler’s revelations, was a relative of former Imperial Chancellor Von Bethmann-Hollweg. Literature siezed at Koessler’8    home    was    for the  “New Republic of Alsace-Lorraine" and called upon the population of the two provinces to separate from France as well as Germany.
