(Continued from First Page.) te allies means actual participation in the war, , while agreement to the re quest of the central powers implies merely friendly neutrality, expressed in permitting the shipment through Bulgaria of arms and other war sup plies for the Turks. Although it has been established rather definitely r that London has no part in the intimation of informal peace discussions, it is plain that Official circles, are. Interested keenly in the news of, activity in this direction. There are straws in the wind' which indicate that what are designated as "proper peace overtures" on the part of Germany would meet with con sideration. However, the general public, not so well informed as is the government, probably would re gard such overtures as premature. While diplomats are seeking to en large the sphere of the war, and while talk of peace is in the air, the great struggle continues along all fronts without interruption.

"To the con trary, the German positions in the west are more secure and favorable than was the case several months ago. It is evident that rumors of this na ture are being spread by agents of Germany's enemies in an attempt to influence public sentiment. Turks Claim Victories.
