y PLAYING WITH FIRE. German Dilly-Dally. "A CRIMINAL GAME" I VERSAILLES, Thursday. I The whole day yesterday the German delegation was in telegraphic communica- tion with the Government in Berlin, and kept informed of the difficulties encoun- tered by Premier Bauer, who summoned both the present and former members of the Cabinet, as well as members of Count Biockdorff-liantzau's mission, in order to appoint a delegation to sign the Treaty. After three meetings three persons con- sented to be included in the delegation. At 6 p.m., however, a wireless message was received stating that the delegation had not been completed. A CRIMINAL GAME." I Prussian Socialist's Protest and I Warning. Berlin, Wednesday (received Thursday). —Interpellating the Prussian Govern- ment in the Prussian National Assembly on its opposition to the signing of the Peace Treaty, the Independent Socialist, Adlof Hoffmann, made a violent attack on the Government in connection with its general policy. lie said, incidentally, that it was a criminal game which was being played in the East, for a collision in the East would be regarded by the Entente as a breach of the Peace Treaty and then the people would have to bear the consequences. You are playing with fire," the De- puty exclaimed. The proletariat and the majority of the people object to the dictatorship of this Government. Do not wonder if it now itself desires to assume the dictatorship so as to bring about rider." The speaker read extracts from numer- ou. leaflets with the object of showing that an attempt was being made to estab- lish a military dictatorship. Replying to this attack the Premier, Herr Hirsch, termed Hoffmann's charges as gross exaggerations and declared that while he -was at first on his return from Weimar resolved to propose the resigna- tion of the entire Cabinet, this interpel- lation had made him change his mind, and the Ministry's further decision would depend on the result of the present de- bate HINDENBURG'S FAREWELL. Copenhagen, Wednesday (received Thursday).—A telegram from Holberg (Pomerania says that, resigning the sup- reme oommand, Field Mar6hal Von Hin- dc-nburg has issued a farewell message to le troops, expressing his thank's to all officers and men, and admonishing to fur- ther united labour for the welfare of the German Fatherland. G#»eral Groner, wjbg lafcqtn t^dored his resignation as CniBf of the General Staff, in consequence of the unconditional aooeptiance of the Peace Treaty, has de- clared his readiness to remain at his post until matters in the East are settled. WHO WILL SIGN? Berlin, Wednesday.—The Berliner Tageblatt" learns that Herr Hermann Mueller, the new Minister for Foreign Affairs, has declined to go to Versailles to sign the Peace Treaty. The Cabinet, the journal adds, will this afternoon try to find suitable persons willing to undertake the task. Herr Erzberger, it is stated, does not wish-, to undertake the njission.-Reuter. [Mueller has good reason to hesitate. At the end of July, 1914, he made a special journey to France to assure the French Socialists that the Social Democrat De puties in the Reichstag would not vote war credits. That promise was broken a week later.] SPECIAL TRAIN. I delegation Probably Settled I Atready. PARIS, Thursday. I Writing, in Le Matin," M. St. Borice says:— Abeix p.m. yesterday Von Lefden had an interview with Col. Henry, in which the latter gave instructions for the special train with which the German Delegation will arrive. We have, there- fore, reason to suppose that the composi- tion of the delegation has already been decided upon, but that it will be kept secret until the conference h," been officially notified.-Exchange. TO RECEIVE THE NAMES. PARIS, Thursday. M. Buasta will come to Versailles at mid-day to-day to get a reply from the German Government regarding the com- position of the German delegation which 1 yiU sign the Peace Treaty.—Exchange.
