There was no Intimation in the speech cither ot the resumption of the sub- marine warfare. The chancellor scathingly arraigned England as Germany's relentless and unscrupulous foe, and declared that statesmen who refrained from using nil possible and suitable weapons ngainst such an enemy, owing to sen- timents ot consideration or a desire to keep oifen basis for a future under- standing. deserved to be hanged. The chancellor announced In his perora- tion his firm determination to carry through inner reforms iu state organ- ization which the great masses by thoir conduct in the war had earned and deserved. Referring to .the actual conditions on the war fronts the chancellor said attacks made by the central powers In the southeastern theatre had frus- trated the great plan of the entente to sever connections of Germany .with the Orient by. the separate conquest of ia-Hun- Suliii.

But what our enemies hoped :j.qaccom break through 'grand scale and roll .up-onrlTfositiqns has not been "The battle of the Sdnime wiil'cost further sacrifices. Still another trench and another village may be lost but they will not get through.' In regard to the eastern front where, the chancellor said, the Rus were, sians had renewed with heavy attacks, hot predicted the same result. yeaTwnrave'ragTless than the enor-i tow ropes to the -mous crop, the farmers ot Lake will not admit it.
