LAKE 6ARDA
IS UNDER WAY

ITALY BRINGING
PEACE NEARER
WASHINGTON, May 29.? One of
the best known military authorities
at Washington says that peace is
brought appreciably nearer by the
imminent entrance of Italy in to the
world war.
This is also the opinion 'of offic
ials and diplomats in Washington.
They base it. first, upon the aggre
gate strength of the combination
formed against Germany, Austro-Hun
gnrv and Turkey, and secondly, upon
the discouragment which is certain
to prevail throughout the rank and
file of those countries.
German Offensive Over?
To continue an offensive campaign
against the Allies is regarded as an
impossibility for the general staff in
Berlin. It must pursue an aggressive
defensively, with the hope that di
vision will spring up among the Al
lies. Only in such a contingency can
Germany hope to make peace on her
own terms, according to diplomatic
views Otherwise it must be on the
terms or the Allies.
That Germany will throw up the
sponge without further fighting is not
considered for a moment. She ap
pears to be Impregnable in Belgium
and northern France and practically
so In Poland: Her weakness lies
in Augtrla and Hungary.
New Battle In Carpathians
When the present wave of German
anil Austro-Hungarian soldiers shall
have spent Itself in Galicia. it will
recede, accelerated by the Russian
advance. There will be another bat
tle of the Carpathians, and the chanc
es are that It will be more successful
for the allies, in view of the neces
sity the Teutonic allies will be under
to defend every inch of Austrian fron
tier from new enemies.
With Italy participating in the war
the Balkan states unquestionably will I
Jump In. to be on the side or the
"winner" and thereby share in the
fruits of victory, which for them will
be European Turkey. The capture of
Constantinople, it Is boHevcd. will be
a comparatively easy matter.

the following basis:

trla, Pola, Fieumc. Zara and Dalmatia

NEW LINE FOR

SEATTLE, May 20.?- From San
Francisco comes the story that a
steamship company, hitherto an uri
known quantity in the Northern trade
has completed arrangements for a
direct ocean service between the
Golden Gate and Southwestern Al

GERMAN REPLY WILL
NOT MEET DEMANDS 8
Of PRESIDENT WILSON
WASHINGTON, May 29.
?Ambassador James W.
Gerard at Berlin has inti
mated in cablegrams to Sec
retary of State William J.
Bryan that the German re
ply to the note of President
Woodrow Wilson will not
satisfy the demands of the
President.
V
No attempt Is made to disguise the
uneasiness and feeling of apprehen
sion that prevails at Washington re
garding the German situation. The
uneasiness that resulted from the re
ceipt of Judge Gerard's intimation as
to the reply to the American note,
has been aggravated by the receipt by
the State Department from Germany
of a renewal of the warning that
American shipping exercise extreme
caution in traversing the war zone
region of the British Isles.
This warning was Issued by Ger
many yesterday and received at
Washington today.
The further reports of the activity
of the German submarine warfare,
that was suspended for a time after
the destruction of the Lusitania, and
the Nebraskan incident have served
to add to the fear that the United
States and Germany are dangerous
ly near a crisis of far more signifi
cance than any that has risen since
the beginning of the war in Europe.
GERMANS WANT MORE
TIME.
Berlin, May 29.?Germany's reply
to the American note was handed to
American ambassador James W. Ger
ard today, and will reach the United
States Monday. Mr. Gerard has re
fused to make a stateemnt as to the
contents of the note, and the exact
phraseology seems to be unsettled.
It may be stated, however, that in
substance the note will embody the
proposal to America to defer definite
consideration of Germany's submar
ine policy until the two governments
have an opportunity to establish just
what kind of a vessel was sunk when
the Lusitania was sent to the bottom,
and determine whether or not she
was an auxiliary cruiser, armed, car
rying soldiers and munitions of war.
Germany will state that the informa
ton in the possession of their govern
ment and the commanders of her sub
marines sustains the contention that
she answered the definitions of a war
vessel, and that she was prepared to
make war on that country if oppor
tunity offered.
Germany will admit responsibility
for the torpedo attack on the Gulf
light, and it is thought that she will
apologize for it, and offer reparation.
The German press will print the
German reply Sunday.
