EXPECT LLOYD-GEORGE TO BE
BRITISH PREMIER
London, Dec. 6. Announcement
of the appointment and acceptance
by David Lloyd-George to form new
British ministry was expected mo
mentarily this afternoon.
The war minister was summoned
to Buckingham palace By King
George immediately after the king
had held a conference with Andrew
Bonar Law, who 'declined to accept
the premiership. s
Lloyd-George's visit to the royal
palace also followed a conference be
tween the" war minister and Bonar
Law.
It was officially stated that Bonar
Law formally informed the king, dur
ing his conference at Buckingham,
that .he would not attempt to form a
new cabinet.
L King George summoned coalition
cabinet members in council to dis
cuss the present situation.
Lloyd-George's uncompromising
attitude of past few days, an attitude
in which he was cordially supported
by such of his former political op
ponents as Andrew Bonar Law and
Sir Edward Carson, was simply con
crete expression of popular resent
ment at the ineptitude of Asquith
coalition regime. It represented pro
found and country-wide conviction
that an entirely new deal was neces
sary if the war was to be prosecuted
intelligently, energetically and effi
ciently. In addition to the denial from. Sir
Edward Carson that any, plan was
afoot whereby Ireland. would be giv
en home rule in exchange for accep
tance of conscription, John Red
mond, Irish nationalist leader, also
disavowed any such proceeding.

Forces of the central powers are
"within six miles of the city and its
fall is imminent.
The goal, it appears, is not Bucha
rest alone. Capture of Rumanian
capital will be merely incidental to
Germany's plans, which calls first for
the destruction of the Rumanian
army preparatory to a march toward
Russia, with perhaps Odessa as the
