PEACE PLAN RUMORED
Prince von Bnolow to Confer
With "Blnck Pope,"
Special Cablt DeifatcK (oTm Scv.
Home, via London, June 28. Prince
Bernhard von Huelow, the former Im
perial German Chancellor, whoso visit io
America was abandoned. It Is reported
here, because of I'resldent Wilson's re
fusal to collaborate with him on behalf
of peace. Is expected to go soon to
Switzerland from Berlin. There he will
meet, It Is said, Father Vladimir Lcdo
(howskl. the "Black Pope," head of the
Order of Jesuits, who was expelled from
Italy In May, 1915. because of alleged
Father Ledochowskl, though n Russian
Pole, Is known to sympathize with Ger
many. His Influence toward peace Is
believed to be considerable In neutral
countries as well as In Italy, where h-i
organized a peace campaign.
Prince von Buelow's plan, It Is said,
consists of uniting the Italian Jesuits'
efforts in behalf of peace wjth those of
the official Socialists, who are casting
aside their antl-clerlcaltsm and pralslmc
the Pope's efforts for peace. The Social
ists have even advocated the Pope's par
ticipation In the prospective peace con
gress, considering It necessary, owing to
th. purifying Idealism the pontiff's pres
ence would Inject Into the conferences.
Austria and Germany are reported to
be organizing all elements and Influenced,
lest when they sue for peace the Allien
Insist upon continuing the war.

low'a brother-in-law, alluding to peace,
"Even admitting that Autria and Ger
many provoked the war. their responsi
bility will be less than that of the Allies
if the latter Insist upon prolonging It.
All pacifists here are repeating the
same refrain, which Is said to be Inspired
by Prince von Buclow.
