Washington The Allies reply to the Central powers through Wil

of the liberties of their people and are faithful in the engngeinent not
to lay down arms separately, Thev have resolved to reply collective
ly to the pretended propositions of peace. They protest two assertions
in the note of their enemies, one being the charge that the Allies were
responsible for the war and the other that the Centrals proclaim vic
tory. Such affirmations, doubtly inexact, cannot be submitted to,

Then follows a long review of the events leading up to the war,
of the efforts of the Allies to avoid a clash, ot the refusal of Germany
to heed reason, of the invasion of Belgium, etc.
The Allies are forced again to assert for all time that no peace is
possible without reparation for the violated rights of nations and peo
ples; recognition of the prin iples of nationality and free existence of
small states, and an end to the materialistic forces which have for a
long time constituted a menace to the peace of nations.
The unofficial opinion in Washington is that some means will yet
be found for a further exchange of views between the warring powers
should present negotiations prove a complete failure.

The Daily Wireless the other day)
carried the information that Judge
Yaughan, of the United States dis
trict court, had rendered an opinion
that Filipinos are inelligiblo to be
come American citi7ens. The rul
ing is of particular interest for (ho
first reason that Ju Igo demons had
previously ruled to the contrary,
and, moreover, for the reason that
most of the mem tiers of tho Nation
al Guard are Filipinos and if they
cannot become citizens they canno' ,
of course, belong to the Guard. The
matter will doubtless be taken to
tho 17. S. Supremo Court for a final
ruling. A Honolulu paper has the
following to say of tho decision :
Natives of the Phillipines, not
being white persons or persons of
African descent or nativity, are not
eligible to citizenship under the na
tura'ization laws o f tho United
This is the summary of a decision
handed down today by Federal
Judge Horace W. Yaughan in the
ease of Alfred FloresOcampo, police
oflicei and detective and native of
tho Phillipin.-'s, a petitioner for na
turalization as an American citizen.
The decision is in direct disagree
ment with one handed down some
months ago by Federal Judge C. F.
demons, in wlij.i the latter hold
that Filipinos were eligible for na
turalization. Since the filing of that
decision three Filipinos have been
admitted to citizenship in the local
Judge Yaughan holds that Sec
tion 30 of the act of June 2!), lt)0G,
authorizes tho naturalization of the
class of persons specified thorein by
applying to them all tho applicable
provisions of the laws providing for
the naturalization of aliens, and
relieving them from tho necessity
of renouncing foreign allegiance.
That one does not come within
the classes of persons designated in
Section 210!) of tho revised statutes,
which, the decision holds, was not
repealed by tho act of June 29, ''to
establish a uniform rule of naturali
zation," does not make it inappli
cable to him, says Judge Vaughan.
It applies and forbids his naturali
zation unless ho does come within
one of the classes specified, he adds.
"It is no answer to say that the
section applies to aliens, mo ueei
sion continues, 'and that the ap
plicant is not an alien. It is by
virtue of the provisions of the laws
for tho naturalization of aliens that
ho must be admitted if at all."
It is further pointed out that Sec
tion 30 applies all of tho provisions
of the naturalization law, including
Section 21(51) of the lev'iFod statutes,
to the persons specified therein. A
