P- ARTHUR BALFOUR SENDS NOTE
P TO AMPLIFY ENTENTE REPLY.
8 Why Peace is impossible at Present
r is Explained.
e Washington-The Entente Allies,
Iin a note addressed by Arthur Bal
four, British Foreign Minister, to Am
bassadlor Spring-Rice, and delivered to
R the State Department, amplify their
T reply to President Wilson's peace
note, by explaining in detail why they
believe it impossible at present to at
tamn a peace which will assure them
such guarantees as they consider es
sential. The note also explains why
the Allies demand the expulsion of
Turkey from Europe, restoration of
r Alsac-eLorraine to France, of Italia
I rredenta to Italy, and the other ter
ritorial changes set forth. Those
nwho think the future of the world may
be insured by international treaties
and international laws, the note says,
hiave ill-learned the lessons taught by
recent history. After charging that
German influence in Turkey had re
Isulted in conditions as barbarous and
smore aggressive than were known
d unmder Sultan Abdul Hanmid, and that
it had been shown Germany eannot
n-be expectedl to respect treaty obliga
k(1 tions, Mr. Balfour says:
"So long as Germany remains the
Germany~ wvhich, without a shadow of
r- justifieation, overran arnd barbarously
ill-treated a country it was pledged
to dlefend,. no state can regard its
lrights as secure if they have no better
pr'otection than a solemn treaty."

Washington.-Admiral Dewey, the

officer of the wvorld,died at his home 11
here in his eightieth year. He had not
been cosol ous since the day before
wvhen hie lapsed into coma, still be- a

A general breakdown, accompanied
by a-terio sclerosis Incident to old
age, was the cause of death. The dis- 11
ease had been, gradually spreading Its 0
hold upon the powerful body for a 11
year and a half, but the admiral, proud V
of his physical vigor, had fought it off'
and even kept its existence a secret |
from most .of his intimate friends.
Mrs. Dewey and the admiral's only '
son, George, were at the bedside. They
had known there was no hope.
The admiral died at 5:56 o'clock.
President Wilson and Secretary Dan.
iels were notified at once and the news
was flashed by wireless to American I
naval vessels and stations all over the
world. The message carried orders
that all flags be put at half-mast.
The president will confer with Sec
retary Daniels and Rear Admiral
Badger and arrange for the funeral
which takes place Saturday. The body
will be buried at Arlington National
Cemetery, on the Virginia shore of the
Potomac river, where many of Admi
ral Dewey's former comrades have
been laid to rest.
Only other two men--Farragut andl
Porter-have held the rank of the
admiral of the American navy, and
since Civil War days, no military fig.
uire has held such a place as Dewey
in the affections and admiration of the
American. people. Hius death ended 62
years of active service. His -"baptism
of fire" came in the Civil War,
through which he served with dis-I
inetion. Promotion followed promo
