As in 1870, the more impor tant of the Emperor's advisers went to the front with him. The party included Chancellor von Bethmann- Hollwegg, Secretary of State von Jagow, War Minister von Falkenhayn and other high governmental and army officials. The plan of campaign is that thought ont many years ago and never since departed from, to bend all energies at the very out set to the smashing of Germany's western neighbor. Russia is to be left to Austria until France shall have been disposed of.
