WARSAW, Dec. IG-r^Via Vienna.- (By the Associated. Press)--The government of Poland has been recognized by all the allied powers in o/der to deal with the situation in ^Poland, Gen. Joseph Pilsudski, the military head of the present government, told the correspondent today. Gen. Pilsudski is opposed by some groups on the ground that he is a Socialist, b'at he says't'bat he is a Democrat. -Whan .only .19 j years old he was arrested at Vtina,, on his birthday and sent to Siberia and his persecutions by the Russians has endeared him to many p-)le^. His ancestors belonged to tho noiiitity,' but bis long association with those; who opposed Russia has  caused r-some Poles to declare that he k unsife to conduct the government. Gen. Pilsudski, -while he is the. military head ot the government, signs all government decrees and is cousldored the civil head also. - -. The Polish leader is a slightly built, nervous man, bent wijth ill-health, but keeps to his post for long hours,-One month after he returned-from,solitary confinement in a German prison, he' was able to expel the German governor-general. ;^ , "We need an army,'V-.he"said, "to avoid the danger of civil -war and to-guarantee the frontiers agatosfc.Bolshe-. ,^Tiki over the Infiljerktlon, of GJermah: troops and particularly of the army of Gen.

' ' \ "There .? are s several ; cOBiplaints-kgaihst "Gen. 'Hoffmann's iai'ihy. The; .first is that the German* prevented four officer^snd; troops from" crossing Vthe frontier arid orgaiiizing the Poles 'at Vilna, Minsk:and,elseiwhere'against; ! growing disorders. In the second place the Germans are selling and-'gi-viiig I arms to dangerous elementB. It is even declared that the Geri&ains ha-ve delivered their territory otTsMinsk to the Bolsheviki in return for � 40,000 roubles. This has resulted In much �suffering for the Polish ^population there and the burning of-houses-and chateaux. * ' ' ' "f the army ot Gen. Hoffmailn breaks up there is danger that tb'e 200,000 men-in it will drift over du^ frontiers, robbing and causing disorders. 'The Germans are inciting antagonistic.elements in Poland and are , creating trouble in Posen, (Germaii Poland). Their troops- of occupation, in; Iceland are taking an offensive attitude toward the population,;.-\yith the ^ result ihat I have been compelled to send ttroops to various places. "It is necessary ' tHat'qiir govern-, ment be. recognized by tjie-: allie?.. At present there are certain' difficulties. The Polish committee, in Paris -represents parties not in accord with' the others here, but this 'Internal matter is being arranged. Personally I desire a compromise. It was my intention to go to Prance.when I '^s arrested by the Germans in July, 1917. At;that fflme I foresaw that Russia- -was sure to break up and that, Augtrla would follow."
