The terms which the dealers now get from packers and job

as this advancement in prices has also caused a stringency in
the money market, it make it impossible to do business on the

EARLY WAR NEWS.
GERMANY PAVING WAY FOR
WASHINGTON, Sept. 18. Germany
lias suggested informally that the
United States should undertake to
elicit from Great Britain, France and
Russia a statement of the terms un
der which the allies would make
The suggestion was made by tlie
Imperial Chancellor, Von Bethmann-
Hollweg, to Ambassador Gerard at
Berlin, as a result of an inquiry sent
by the American Government to
learn whether Emperor William was
desirous of discussing peace, as
Count Von "Bernstorff, the- German
Ambassador, and Oscar Straus re
cently had reported.
No reply was made by Emperor
William himself nor did the Imperial
Chancellor indicate whether or not he
spoke on behalf of his monarch. Am
bassador Gerard cabled President
Wilson the Chancellor's remarks from
recollection, which was substantially
"Germany was appreciative of the
American Government's interest and
offer of services in trying to make
peace. Germany did not want war,
but had it forced on her. Even if she
defeats France, she must likewise
vanish Great Britain and Russia, as
all three have made an agreement not
,to make peace except by common con
"Similarly, England has announced
through Premier Asquith and her
diplomatists and newspapers that she
intended to fight to the limit of her
endurance. In view of that determin
ation on the part of Great Britain,
the United States ought to get pro
posals of peace from the allies.
"Germany could accept only a last
ing peace, one that would make her
people secure against future attacks.
To accept mediation now would be in
terpreted by the allies as a sign of
weakness on the part of Germany and
would be misunderstood by the Ger
man people, who, having made great
sacrifices, had the right to demand
guarantees of security."
The above is all that Ambassador
Gerard communicated as to his con
versation. He added only the brief
comment that he, himself, thought
the way might possibly be opened to
President Wilson referred to the
Chancellor's conversation' as non
commital and incidental to the ac
knowledgment of the American Gov
ernment's inquiry. The President in
dicated that he rather expected a re
ply to the inquiry to be sent event
ually from the Emperor himself,
though he realized that the Imperial
Chancellor may have consulted his
monarch by telegraph before talking
informally with the American Ambas
sador. President Wilson took no action as
a result of the message, waiting to
hear from Ambassador Gerard wheth
er anything of a more formal char
acter could be obtained by him which
the United States might communicate
to Great Britain, France and Russia.
It was understood that neither the
British or French Ambassadors, who
are in Washington, were informed
officiallay or unofficially by Secretary
Bryan of the conversation between
the Imperial German Chancellor and
WILSON SEES LITTLE HOPE FOR
WASHINGTON, Sept. 18. Presi
dent Wilson sees little prospect of
peace in Europe reflected in the un
official exchanges which American
Ambassadors have been conducting
with Germany, Great Britain, France
This was leared to-day at the White
House following a careful study of
the message which Ambassador Ger
ard cabled giving his recollections of
an informal conversation with the
Imperial German Chancellor.

more definite in the way of overtures
comes from the belligerants the Pres
ident feels that his hands are virtual

by Mrs. Rosika Schwimmer, of Hun

presented "by Senator Thomas.
Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt accom
panied Mrs. Schwimmer.
The total of those for whom the ap
peal was made was not less than, 1,-
000,000 women of thirteen countries.
"The President told me he was
thinking day and night about the pos
sibility of peace in Europe," declared
Mme. Schwimmer after her interview
with Mr. Wilson. "He seemed to be
deeply interested in the movement
and said that he would lose no op
portunity of taking practical steps
to end the war."
President Wilson was to-day re
quested by a delegation ' represent
ing the General Conference of
Friends to initiate plans for the call
ing of a meeting of the nations for
the formation of a world parliament
for settlement of the war.
WILSON REFUSES TO RECEIVE
PROTEST OF GERMAN- AMER
WASHINGTON, Sept. 18. Presi
dent Wilson to-day declined to receive
Horace L. Brand, of Chicago, who
come to present messages from sev
eral German-American organizations
protesting against the charges of
atrocities made by the Belgian com
mission against the German armies.
The President took the position
that he had already refused to per
mit natives of other belligerent coun
tries living in the United States to
discuss the war with him and that
the messages of the German-Americans
were not of the same nature as
those brought by the Belgian com
missioners. He planned to write a
letter to Mr. Brand explaining that
his recent statement on neutrality
addressed to the American people
should apply equally to all living in
The President is understood to be
deeply disappointed over what he
feels is disregard of his neutrality
statement. He is determined to
check, as far as possible, continued
efforts of natives of European coun
tries living in America to take sides
on the question. He does- not believe
such citizens should publicly take

WILSON REPLIES TO PROTEST
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16. Presi
dent Wilson to-day replied to the
message recently received from Em
peror William protesting against the
alleged use by the allied armies of
dum-dum bullets. He said that he
had read the communication with the
gravest concern, but that it would be
unwise and premature for the Unit
ed States to express any final judg
ment in the controversy.
The message was almost identical
with the speech made by the Presi
dent to the Belgian commission which
protested against alleged German
