Paris, Dec. 13, 9 53 a. m. A dis

"According to semi-official sources
a definite solution of the questions
pending between Greece and the en
tente powers has been nearly reached.
Colonel Phallis (of the Greek army)
after an interview with General Sar

that negotiations were proceeding sat
isfactorily.. "The entente allies' retreat is pro
ceeding slowly but normally and in
security. The French and British are
taking timo to destroy tunnels and
bridges in order to prevent the enemy

risks which the Greek army may run
as the result of interruption of com
munication by rail with western Mac

Message Sent to Vienna Con
cerning Ancona Disaster
DEMANDS ARE JUSTIFIED
Germany "Let Down Easy"
While Woe Follows in Foot
steps of Her Ally.
London. Dec 13, 4 a. m Contrast
ing the tone of the note sent to tho
Austrian government by tho United
States with the noto sent to Germany
after the Lusitanla disaster, the Daily
Express concludes that "tho note
would have been more Impressive if
it had been addressed to the power
capable of injuring tho United States
instead of to its ally from which the
United States has nothing to fear."
Continuing, the Express says:
"It was a monstrous and cruel act,
but not a whit more criminal than
tho sinking of the Lusitanla, The
note sent to Vienna, however, is di
rect and almost bereft of compli
ments. Germany may sin with prac
tical impunity, but woo betide Austria
If she follows in her friond's foot
steps." Tho Daily Chronicle, in an editorial,
"Both President Wilson's descrip
tion of the outrage and his demands
are perfectly justified, but would not
both have boon evon more justified
in the Lusitania caso? However, we
may congratulate the president on his
. novel vigor. His demand for the pun
ishment of the captain of the subma
rine may cause a seml-huraorous com
plication behind tho scenes should it
turn out that he was a Gorman offi
cer commanding a German submarine."
WAR'S EFFECT ON
National Foreign Trade Coun

When Conflict Ends.
MUST OFFSET LOSS
World's Decreased Million'
Tons by Shipping Already
Sunk by Belligerents.
New York, Dec 13. The war's effect-on
sea transportation and the
"prospects of a break in irelght rates
after the war is ended, are summar
ized In a statement issued today by
the National Foreign Trade Council,
composed of representatives of large
manufacturing commercial Interests.
James A. Farrell. president of the
United States Steel corporations Is
chairman of the council.
"The main question," says the state
ment. "Is how soon the break in the
freight market will take placo follow
ing the cessation of hostilities. Some
shipping people hold that the break
will be sharp and sudden, others that
tho very slight additions through re
construction now being made to the
tonnage of the world will tend to ward
off any tendency to a sudden decline
when tho war is concluded.
"It is said in support of the latter
contention that though some fivo mil
lion tons of German and Austrian
shipping now immobilized will be re
leased, tho shipping already sunk will
decrease tho world's fleets by a mil
lion tons, while the 2,000,000 tons of
new shipping at present in construc
tion throughout the world Is not ex
pected at once to offset the losses duo
to the war.
Huge Movement of Materials.
"For several years to come the wast
age due to the great war may cause

will provide permanent employment
for a very largo share of the world's

have readjusted themselves and trade
