By Associated Press to The Review Washington, D. C, Feb. 1—General Pershing in an official telegram to Secretary Baker today characterized the sensation reports ln French newspapers of assaults and burglaries having been committed ln Paris by American soldiers as "gross exaggerations." The number of crimes committed by American soldiers, he said, was almost negligible considering the large number of men ln the vicinity. He recommended that a full refutation of the charges be put before the American public. Since the conclusion of the armistice the report added, Paris bas offered attraction to men mischievious- ly and criminally Inclined and this has arisen ln minor disturbances but the American police organization ls excellent and disorders are kept at a minimum. Oeneral Pershing's cablegram was made public by the department: It follows: "Reference your telegram No. 2.- 570, a personal knowledge of conditions and investigation since receipt of your telegram shows that sensational reports as to assaults and burglaries by American soldiers are gross exaggerations. Crimes by American soldiers ln Paris are almost negligible, considering large numbers of men in the vicinity. The same may be said as to conditions throughout France. "Since tbe conclusion of .the armistice I'aris offers attraction to men mischievously and criminally Inclined. Naturally there are minor disturbances ln Paris, but the American military police organisation is excellent and these disorders are kept at a minimum. "None of these are traceable In any way to faulty pay system. No penniless soldiers are found ln Paris. There are individual cases of delayed payment due to a change in pay system which took place during hostilities. The new pay system enables a soldier to get pay from paymaster when money ls due him. Generally speaking the pay has been almost always correct. The pay department has been sending officers to find casuals at our expenses and elsewhere with directions to pay men whose records are entirely lost. "Full refutation of the charges made regarding crimes and disorders in Paris cannot be put too strongly before the American public." 56,592 Major Casualties In U. S. Army, Tabulation Shows Gen.

In view of the fact that Count Von Bernstorff is one of the men entrusted with tlie working out of the details of Germany's participation In the peace conference and wlll. with the foreign minister, be a German delegate, tne statement may be regarded as oliici-l. lt waa written In —aiglish as follows: — •'The question what would Germany consider a peace ol right and Justice, may briefly be answered In this way: — "That we would regard as such a settlement, by which the terms of pence laid down in President Wilson's address prepared to pay for all damage done to to Congress, January 8, 1918. and the the Belgian civil population nnd their ~?rty as far a-r will be proven to quent'addresses, are carried out In true j have accordance with the high-minded and - far-seeing spirit in which they were conceived.

Is to be attributed to point number fourteen, providing for the constitution of a League f Nations, which Mr. Wilson said iirlncinles of settlement in his subse- property as rar • - • i> - been perpetrated by German aggression. The same applies to point number eight, relative to damage done civilians und their property In northern Krance. As fur Alsace-Lorraine, we could not consider It "righting a wrong" If through the pence settlement a new wrong shuuld he permitted. That, however, would be thu case If Germans were compelled to become French against their will.
