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. Roessler, the man alleged to be the arch conspirator, and who has been placed under arrest, has, according to the military authorities, made a confession admitting that he received! 500,000 francs from Germany since last May. 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.
