The treaty of peace with Germany contains many novel features. One of them is that which provides for a special tribunal to try the ex-Emperor for a "supreme offense against international morality and the sanctity of treaties." This, of course, is a very different thing from a proceeding against a nation to penalize it for disregard of its international obligations, or to enforce against its will the provisions of a treaty. The former Emperor is to be prosecuted simply as a wrong doer.
