Viscount Grey in his speech said that before the war Germany had forced the pace in armaments "She led the way up the hill," he said, "and she must lead the way down. There can be no talk of disarmament until Germany, the great armorer, has disarmed. Beyond that, the league of nations must insist upon each government giving fullest information ql the armaments of each country, whether manufactured for itself of for other conntries. If any forcing of the pace occurs the league can consider the application of the economic question before things have gone too far. But regulations cannot completely dispose of the question of armaments for even it all armaments disappear, coxamer __________ . cial ships and commercial airplanes blatt. while Stating that it is not re-' still be potential weapons and these it will be impossible to limit Morality is the one thing that is I Tfte Quick Way to % Stop a Cough , ^ This home-msde rmp does tbe �> work In � hurrj-.

To Influence Opinion London, Oct. 12.-German military power already has been placed under civil control in a complete and permanent fashion, so far as politics is con cerned, according to an interview with Mathias E-rzberger, the Ceutrlst leader of the reicbstag, sent out ty the German government wireless service. This interview Is being published with the evident intention of influencing public opinion abrdad. Thus, Gei^ Von Stein, the Prussian war minister, had to be elimlnjited, because he had always wovked against a peace by understanding, the interview says. G�ii.

Two commanding generals, Von Vletlnghof and Von Haehmlret, ^have been renioved because they 'were coasldorea the embodiment of militarism. All decisions of commanding generals in the interior of Germany concerning .administrative functions are made dependent upon the approval of presidents of provinces, with an appeal to Gen. Scheuch and finally to the chancellor, who Is legally responsible, according to Brzbergor.

"We must not find a pretext lor excluding Germany from the league of nations. On the other hand, every na tion in the league must represent free people and bo determined to carry out the objects of the league In all sincerity. President Wilson has re peatedly said that a government which doe's come with credentials must come with the confidence of the people be hind It and is responsible I'o the peo pie and no one else can be trusted. "The league should have authority Over an international force by which It might deal, for Instance, 'with cases where small and backward na tions are refused redress for a wrong done by a stronger nation. ^ The arousing of suspicions thus could" "be averted.
