Chancellor of the German Reich, Count Hertling

Berlin, 24th September. 
At today's meeting of the main committee of the Reichstag, the Chancellor of the German Reich, Count Hertling, said in a long speech: 
"The stubborn attempts of the enemy to break through will fail. Our generals, Hindenburg and Ludendorff, will show themselves to be equal to each other as well as to
the present situation, and the premature victory of the enemies will soon abate again. We led the war from the first day as a defensive war. For our own defense, we
have arrived in Belgium. When we intervened in Belgium, we violated the written law, but there is, as for the individual, as well as for the States another right, that
is the right of self-defense and self-defense. Subsequently, we have seen from the Belgian archives, how questionable it had been long before the outbreak of war over
Belgian neutrality. For our defense alone, it has been in all the further battles. And in France, which has now become the principal theater of war, we have never made
a secret of the fact that we have no thought of conquest. The situation is serious, but it gives no cause for profound misunderstanding. The iron wall on the Western
Front will not be breached, and the submarine war is slowly but surely doing its job. The hour will come, because it must come, where even the enemies will come to
their senses and find themselves ready to put an end to the war. In the meantime, it applies cold-blooded and confident, united and firmly together. The government
wants to work only with the people and for the people. The state government is determined to adopt the Prussian electoral reform bill and will not shy away from any
means available to it in constitutional terms."

Count Hertling concluded: 
"In principle, in my Reichstag speech of February 25, I agreed that a general peace could be discussed on such a basis, but Mr. Wilson did not take notice of it then
or later. I take no hesitancy in commenting on this question again today and pointing briefly to the goal and basis of such an association. It is a call for universal,
gradual and gradual disarmament, for the establishment of compulsory courts of arbitration, for the freedom of the seas, for the protection of small nations. As far as
the first point is concerned, I have already Citing earlier declarations, called the idea of an arms limitation quite debatable, adding that the financial position of
all post-war European countries would lend the most effective support to a satisfactory solution to this question. If it were possible to reach an international
understanding that disputed legal questions between different states should always be submitted to an arbitral tribunal and made binding on the members of the League
of Nations, this would undoubtedly be a significant step towards the maintenance of general peace. I have already commented on the freedom of the seas; It is a
necessary condition for the unrestricted traffic of states and peoples. But here, of course not on our side, the greatest difficulties will be made. When I touched on
this point at the time and pointed out the conferences that would demand honest implementation, that is, unrestricted access for all nations to the inland seas, no
supremacy of England in Gibraltar and Malta, as on the Suez Canal, an English newspaper has described this as impudence. Finally the protection of small nations. Here
we can immediately and unconditionally state that we have a clear conscience."
