Report Allies Tell Wilson
He Turns Aside Own Policy
lirn.NOH AIHI.S, Wednesdny, l-'eb, IS.- A siimmnry of the main
points in tho allied reply to President Wilsons Adtlatlc noti. eabli'd by
tho Home correspondent of l-u Naclon, illscloses that President Wilson
threatened to withdraw his signature from tho llrltlsh Kreneh American
treaty establishing security for Prance, to which the nllles reply that
such action would destroy absolutely tho "new l'reneh policy " for
which President Wilson Invited protection. Tho fundamental points of
the reply to Picsfdent Wilson, according to tho correspondent, am:
I'lrst. The allies answer thn necnsatlon of hsvlng prepared n conven
tion fur lite nnnexntlon or Plume to llaly. which pre supposes bad faith
mi the part of IUIn, by saying thai President Wllaoii la unitblo to
Second. The Italian petition for ihe establishment of territorial con
tiguity with Plume Is a very small thing rtimpufed with tho cession of
Dalmatla, uhlch tho whole world Is able to prove by merely examining
thn map of Kutope. ,
vThlrd. Tin- nllles observe that tjin project of President Wilson which
comprehends the mention of a buffer state, lines been reji-otod by thn
Jugo-Slas and the allied nations luivo been nimble tit Insist upon It.
l-'oltrth. The strip of territory nncessury to establish tho nnutlKUlty
of Plume with Italy hits nut sufficient value in Justify ptoerastlnatlon In
re-estiihllshlng thn peace of Kurnpn.
Plfth Italy enteiod thn war Inspired by Ideals at a moment nt least
ns critical as Unit when the I'tilted States entered. Hhei suffered sacri
fices In blond and money Incomparably mqro serious than thoso of the
I lulled States,
Sixth. Tim president, In threatening to withdraw his slRiinturo from
thn treaty of Versailles, which established the security of Prnnco,
gravely Injures thn aery new Pronrh pulley for which lm Invited pro

In drawing up his notes, A Naclon's correspondent says, tho Itrltlsh
delegates prepared the technical form hi collaboration with thn Kalians,
while the political sense ot thn doxiimont Is that of thn Prottch dole
