STRONG EiOG TO FORCE PEA Says Hindenburg, But Must Beware of Allied Propaganda Amsterdam, Sept. 7.-Field Marshal Hindenburg's manifesto to the German people declaring the enemy, in addition to the armed offensive, is conducting an offensive by printed matter containing most insane rumors, is published prominently in all the German newspapers. The proclamation says that along with tho battle against the German armies, the enemy is waging war against the German spirit. "We should not treat lightly this plan of the enemy," he says. "What are the facts?" asks Von Hindenburg. "In the east we have forced peace and in the iwest we are also strong enough to do so, despite the Americans. But we must be strong and -united." The manifesto says that the allies are trying to force neutral nations to fight against Germany, "because we are a match for them. Why does the enemy incite colored people against the Germans? Because he wants to annihilate us." Referring to a pamphlet advising the Germans to fight against the Hohenzollerns and capitalism and to help the entente give Germany a better constitution, the proclamation' aays: "The enemy knows what strength resides in our state and empire and endeavors to opfen wounds in the German body politic with leaflets and rumor.s. He endeavors to sow dissension and distrust among the federal states. "There always have been traitors to the fatherland, willing and unwilling. They mostly dwell In neutral countries in order not to be obliged to share our battles and deprivations." The manifesto concludes: "Be on your guard, German army."

He said he did not believe the necessary outcome to the extension of tlfe franchise would be parliamentariza-tion of the government. The appointment of ministers was the privilege of the crown, he declared, and would remain s'o. Rev.
