Calls on Heaven. "Ho up above knows my, sense of responsibility. Repeatedly durng the past monUis tho responsible leaders of tho Imperial Government have unambiguously given to understand to every one who wished lo understand that we are ready at all times to offer tho hand of peace." The emperor declared the answer of 'Germany's enemy was iho outspoken will to destruction, tho disintegration, Iho crushing of Germany. "To make peace," he added, "two are necessary. If either is unwilling, the other cannot, presuming that he does not overthrow the other. Thus we are confronted with the enemy's absolute will to destruction.

"Our death-defying navy also has proved that. It beat the enemy-at the Skuggerruck, despite Ills great superiority. Our U-boats, like a consuming worm, gnaw at the enemy 's vitals more than our enemies will admit. "Even though, in the opinion of many among you, it is lasting too long, every German man and and every German woman must, in witnessing these. Incomparable heroic deeds or our aimy and our navy, be aware that we are fighting and struggling for existence and that we must make the utmost effort lo defend ourselves. victoriously, .not only through the work but as regards the thoughts of our people. "Many among you have often asked themselves during this long war: llow did such a thing happen? Why did we have to undergo such a thing after forty years of peace?' I think It is a question well woclli of on r answer and which must be answpred for the future—for our children and our grandchildren." "1 have thought long on the matter, and have come to the following answer: 'In Uils world good clashes with evil. That iB how things have been, ordered from on high —the yes and the no; the no of the doubling mind against the yeB of the creative mind; the no of the pessimist against the yes of the optimist; the'no of the unbeliever against the yes of the champion of fallh; the yes of -Heaven against the no of Hell. Says He's Right. "You will acknowledge lhat I am right In describing this war as the product of a great negation. And do you ask what negation of it is? It is the negation of tho German people's right to existence. It is negation of all our _ kulture, a negation of our achleve- i-uients, of ail onr work. "The German people are ""Industrious, meditative, assiduous, imaginative in all domains. It worked with body nnd soul. .But there were people who did not wish to work, but to rest on their laurels. Theso were our enemies. Wo got close to them through our profitable work and the development of our Industry, science and art; through our popular education and social legislation. Thereby, our people throve, and then came envy. How the War Started. "Envy Induced our enemies' to fight, and war came upon us.

"Hatred manifests itself only among peoples who feel themselves beaten. If, therefore, such terrlblo hatred exists among our onomlus it owes its origin to Ihe fact that their calculations have, been wrong. Every one who knows tho character of the Anglo-Saxons knows what It means to fight them—how tenoulous thoy are. We do not know when the struggle will end, but one thing ""wo do know, namely, that wo must fight tho battle through. At Moscow. "And now, my friends, let mo draw your atentlon towmcthing mare. You have read what recently happened In Moscow — tho mighty conspiracy against the present government.

The emperor then referred to the German empress, "who, by God's assistance, again Is on the road to eovery." Quoted fcom Bible. •He recalled the passages i n Ihe bin: "Cast thy burden upon the lord and He shall sustain thee," and "But seek ye first Ills kingdom and His righteousness and all these thing shall be added unto you." The emperor then added: "How can we please God and soften his heart? "Doing Our Duty." "lty doing our duty. In making our Fatherland Tree! "Consequently, it is onr duty lohold out with ail'our strength In the fight against our enw.. ies.

The nation from which such a hymn originated must be invincible! "My request; my demand of you and through you to all'the workers who have proved themselves so admirable and capable and through you again to the entire German people is this: For inc mid for my relations to my people, my words of Auwusl 4, 1911. hold good. 1 know no party; 1 know only Germans, ft is : no ! ltme for factions.

"Now promise me on behalf of tho entire Gcrninn labor: "We intend to right and to hold out to the last, so help us God.' Whoever intends, let him answer 'yes'," Theasseuibly loudly chorused "yes" and the emperor continued: "I 'thauk you. With this 'yes' 1 now go on to the field marshal.

Another step in the development of the peace offensive in Germany Is noted In the rocent denunciation of Samuel Gompers by Carl Rudolph legion, president of tho German Federation of Trade Unions.
