her fact that Austria would have agreed to
pacific settlement ot nat.fcnal disputes, lhey addressed unprecedented
tl declared war without reference to Hague
conditions. Following ultimatum, both rejected all attempts to bring
peaceful solution. Gernlany transgressed all efforts of Allies to avert
conllagation in Europe. Dnstead, long trained troops ruthlessly invaded
Belgian neutrality, with which country Germany had a solemn compact
to protect. This invading power now asks to discuss peace. They
hotly proclaimed that treaties were mere scrap and that necessity knew
no laws. At present shame offers are based on war map which Ger
many imagines permanent, and on which peace must be talked. Map
represents nothing than a superficial passing phase of a great situation.
Allies are prepared and present military positions do not represent real
strength. No peace on such terms, wholly to advantage of agressor
who after two years finds (himself battered and unable to reach the
goal he fancied to be able to reach in two months. Allies forced to
assert again and for all time that no peace is possible until they have
secured reparation fit the violated rights of nations and the free
existence of small st.A-'S. Xo peace possible so long as Allies have not

That Wilson sefit supplemental circular became known yesterday at
first intimation of -ply from Spain. Reference to second communica
tion directed to vaijuius powers asking for co-operation to secure under
standing amongst lelligerents to bring war to a conclusion. Unofficial
opinions between Marring powers, if present negotations fail. General
opinions between f waring powers, if present negotations fail. General
opinion is that Alies replied much as expected and in so doing played
their strongest card.
