"Intellectuals" Get Busy When
Amsterdam, July 5. Greatest inter
est is manifest in the scheduled meet
ing of the German reichstag today
throughout Germany. First Berlin dis
patches reported that Imperial Chan
cellor Von Bethmann-Hollweg might
seUe the occasion to make formal re
ply to British Premier Lloyd-George's
recent Glasgow speech amplifying on
the British war aims and asserting that
there can be no peace without a victory.
Of scarcely less interest throughout
the country was the report of the con
stitution committee expected to be sub
mittcd at the opening Besison of the
German parliamentary body and the
action to be taken on it. .Back in May,
the constitution committee, headed by
the majority socialist, Philip Seheide-
mann, made several recommendations
for changes in Germany's governmental
system. Its work at that time was hail
ed as immediate accomplishment of the
kaiser's commands to Bethmann-Holl- j
wcg urging a readjustment of certain j
inequalities in the government. Short-1
ly after, however, a certain class of
German radical socialists of the Lede
bour, Haaso and Liebknecht type, dis
covered that the "reforms" suggested
by the committee were mere shams.
Committee Killed It
The committee recommended that the
imperial chancellor be made responsible
to the reichstag in his actions. The
move was hailed throughout Germany
as a great reform step. But the com
mittee promptly vitiated this by for
mally voting that the reichstag had no
power to remove the chancellor for
any act of his. Power of appointment
of the chancellor and of his dismissal
was retained, as always, with the kais
er. The committee, however, did recom
mend a complete redisricting and re
apportionment plan for representation
in the reichstag. Exactly how this is to
bo achieved is to be decided at meet
ings of the committee, which are to
be held this month.
Germany s present system of repre
sentation in the reichstag is that which
was devised in 1871. It does not permit
of minority representation. The consti
tution committee has announced it will
change this scheme on the basis of
equal suffrage of all men.
The German stato of Prussia holds
the balance of power in Germany and
neither the reichstag nor the constitu
tion coinmitteo can make reforms there
without action by the Prussian reich
stag. Today's meeting of the reichstag was
for a scheduled Bession of two weeks.
The original plan was for a silting of
only three or four days but it was be
lieved that this win oe prolonged.
Made Formal Demands

Berlin, via London, July 5. Coinci
