Recognizing that the safety of tho fatherland necessitates most decisive measures, the ministers resolved to accomplish the task in full accord and solidarity with all the honest elements devoted to the country. It was decided at the cabinet meeting to convoke in Moscow soon a con* feronce of the principal ' representatives of the Russian social organisations and to .place before it the (acta In the tfiuntry as they actually art. Berlin-, July 29, via- Copenhagen.- Dr. George Michaelis,the German chancellor, 'on Saturday summoned a large number of newspaper men, to whom among other things he declared "It would be of the greatest importance for the enlightenment of the whole world regarding the true reasons for the continuation of the sanguinary massacre of nations tor it to be known that written proofs of our enemies' greed for conquest have since fallen into our hands. I refer to reports,of the secret debate on June 2 In the French chamber of deputies. "I ask the French government this question: "Does it deny that ex-Premier Brland and Premier Rlbot in that secret sitting, at which were present Deputies and Mbutet and Cocchin who had Just returned from Petrograd, were forced to admit that Franpe shortly before the Russian revolution had come to an agreement having in view vain plans of conquest with a government which Premier Lloyd George described in his last speech us a corrupt and narrow autocracy." I ask if it is true that the French ambassador at Petrograd in response to a request sent by.him to Paris received instructions to Bign a treaty prepared in advance by M. Doumergue (ex-premier and foreign minister) after negotiations with the Russian emperor. "Is it true or not that the'French President at the instance of Gen. Ber-tholet, head of the French military mission to Rumania, formally entrusted him with a mandate and that M. Briand afterward sanctioned. This treaty assured to France her frontiers, but amended on lines of previous wars the conquest of 1870 to include besides Alsace-Lorraine, Saarbruecken and vast territorial modifications on the left bank ot the Rhine as desired by France. When M. Tereschtonko (Russian foreign minuter) took office', the Russian government protested against the French aims of conquest, which also Included that of Syria and declared that New Russia no longer would be willing to take part in the struggle if it learned of these French war aims. "Wasn't it the principal object of Albert Thomas (Premier-of tho French war council) on his journey to Russia to-overcome his remorse of H. Teros-chtonko? France must confess that M. Brland was the object of stormy attacks during the secret session, that Premier Rlbot was obliged to produce the secret treaty in response tp the demand of M. Rtftrap, leader df the majority socialists In the Froncu chamber and alio that Crland declared that" revolutionary jftusata was obliged to carry eitt *aat Imperial (From Our Own Correspondent) Foremost, July 28.-Foremost Liberals held a couple of meetings with the view of organizing a Liberal Association in Foremost.
