T V.i p r THE WASHINGTON TIMES, SUNDAY, JANTJABY 23, 1016. t AUSTRIANS MEETING UTILE OPPOSITION Ti FROM IN ENEGRO Vienna Advices Say Only Isolat ed Bands Are Opposing In , vading Faroes. LONDON, Jan. 23.-The Austrlnns In M6ntcntgro aro now being opposed only by Isolated bands In rcmoto mountain districts, according to dispatches from Berlin. Vienna advices declare the en tire country Is being swept clear at hostile forces. These reports assert the main Mon tenegrin, army Is concentrated near Cot Clnjc, awaUIng the result of peaco ne iotiattlons' between the Montenegrin government ,and General Kocyess, tho Austrian commander. Not a shot has been exchanged between the Auslrtans and the Montenegrin forces slnco an armlstlco was arranged last week, It Is declared. Before opening fire upon Montene grin 'bands in the mountain recesses, Austrian officers have been ordered In every lnstanco to signal tho enemy news of the armistice. In some regions this has resulted, Berlin reports. In the surrender of tho Montenegrins. But most of tho mountain leaders arc said to have received the report of an armis tice with Incredulity, and to have kept on. fighting. Ordered to Lay Down Arms. It is stated that King Nocholas has dtsuatched messengers to rcmoto Monte negrin districts calling upon the people to lay down their arms. Tho aged King himself has left his army and has ar rived at the Italian port of Brindlsl, on his way to Lyons. France, where the Montenegrin capital has been estab lished temporarily. The Montenegrin troops will bo commanded by former Premier Voukodltch conjointly with Prince Mlnaky. It Is believed they ro up0 into Albania and attempt to Join the Serbians. .". Jho wreck front there Is general quiet, with only occasional skirmishing clashes and aeroplane raids. inc bcnel is growing in Entente circles that the Austro-Ucrman attack on balonlkt Is likely to be delayed some time. Tho Germans are finding; that It will require considerable time to sur mount all tho obstacles facing them In this campaign. Ch.cr among thceo Is the transport of troops, heavy artillery ana supplies ulong tne bad roads ana the railway line, which is still conald e'ably damaged In several parts. It is said the railway will not be completely established for two months. Reign of Terror In Serbia. The Germans arc eald to have in augurated in Serbia a veritable reign or terror. Domiciliary visits and tho seiz ure of goods and property take place for the slightest reason. No ono Is allowed to bo, out between C o'clock In tho even ing and 7 o'clock In tho morning, and the severest punishment Is meted out to those who contravene tho rigorous rules. Floggings are administered In public with severity which tukes no account of ago or sex. Tho Serbians are for bidden to pass the barracks or military buildings, and courts-martial aro kept busy at Plrot, Nlsh. and Uskub. Sev eral women aro reported to have been sentenced to death and shot. Typhus has made Its appearance among the Austro-Gcrman troops. Tho Russians continue to advance against tho Turks in tho Caucasus and n those regions aro reported as enor lrt those rcgioanns are reported as enor mous in Petrograd dispatches. The British relief column has not yet ar rived at Kut el Amara, but It U believed the sloge of that place will be raised son by the Turks, who havo been unablo to arrest tho progress of tho I-rltlsh expedition. Russians On Offensive. In Gallcla and Bessarabia the Rus sians are not only holding their own, but they continue to tnko the offensive. The lighting on this front is conllned chiefly to artillery bombardments, It appearing that there Is no deflrlcrey In tho Russians' supply of ammunition. Berlin reports a complete lull on the eastern front, excepting artillery duels before Dvlnsk. The London war office, as well ns, tho war offices of Paris and' Berlin, report only artillery aellvlt and mine activity on the western front. The German claim to have destroyed sixty Tarda of enemy positions southeast of Ypres. Tho German positions between tho Mo selle: and the Vosges were ahrlled by the French. Paris claims the bombardment of tho German lines In the Charnpugno and the Vosges was effective. Tho Brit ish have shelled the German linos around Hulloch.

This was tho characterltstlon given by B. Havonith. the Belgian minister, to reports published today that ne gotiations are oh foot to bring about separate peace between Germany and Belgium. Minister Havenlth said he had had no advices from his government whatsoever regarding any discussion of separate peace predicted on Ger many's evacuation of Belgian terri tory and promises of partial repara tion. "I only know what tho newspapers have published," Mr. Havenlth said, 'and the newspaper dispatches are based upon an article appearing In a German paper. My government un doubtedly has seen these same re ports ana any comment on the sug gestion should come from Havre and not from the legation in Washington." Minister Havenlth recalled that most of the peace discussion has or iginated In Germittiy. While tho Belgian minister would not make any, official statement In reply to an unofficial report, it was nulte apparent from his manner that If his government shares his views Germany will find a difficult task ahead of It In attempting to make overtures to Belgium for a separate peace. H. O. Sandberg to Attend San Antonio Conference Harry o. Sandberg, of tho Pan-American Union, left last night fur Ban An tonio, Tex., where he will participate In and address n conference in regard to the exposition which wilt be held there In 1118 to commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of th founding of San Antonio, Thence ho will go tt New Orleans to participate In tho Na tlonnl Foreign Trade Convention. BELGIUM TO REJECT " A SEPARATE PEACE German-Feelers to Franoe and Russia Now Extended to King Albert, (Continued from First Page,) government, nor .the people of Belgium wbuld, dream of deserting tho allied cause.- Belgium wilt bo lit the fighting until it ends by a ccneral peace. Tho allied authorities declared most positively that they know Germany l feeling effects of economic prcscuro more seriously than Germany ndmlts er the world knows. For In- tance, tun German effort to net milk for "atarvlnS German babies" from the United Statos, was caustically characterized. Germuny Is gravely In ied of fats, because they are required, not to feel (tarvlng babies, but to make nitro glycerin. As to milk for the babies. Germany probably has less real need for It than any other of the allied coun tries. Her noxt.door neighbors' aro Den mark, Holland, and Switzerland, nM great dairy countries; all at peace; all rending her Immenr quantities of milk. Denmark and Holland 'are tho sources of a larke part nf the dairy supplies used In Great Britain, nnd Germany has drawn these away aa much u possible. Allies Not Considering Peace. The supply of fats In Germany has been woefully short for months past. Not only are thoy needed as a food element, but still more for making ex plosives. The talk about substitutes for fats and for cotton Is branded by, tho allied agents hero as demonstrated nonsense flcpminv tinnlM to make nenp.o. n&t- uraily enough, because she liolds wide HlOtt UL UIII4UM cu ICIIUUIIVI aiu lino an ample trading stock In hand. Tho allies are for precisely the same reason unable to consider peace: and they aro not considering It. Bather, they de clare, they are Just fairly ready to be gin fighting on fair terms. In most positive terms, tho declara tion Is made that there will be no talk of peace until Germany Is crushed. The Idea of the war ending In a stalemate Is entertained by no ono of tho allied powers. It must go farther; iyuc farther. No conclusion will be accept ed that does not mean destruction of German militarism. The information given out In Teu tonic diplomatic quarters that Ger- . many contemplates making Belgium an offer of separate peace, taken In connection with cable dispatches from Germany, was discussed with great Interest In diplomatic circles , today. The German viewpoint was that Belgium would be freo to enter Into such negotiations with the Kais er's government because Belgium la not a party to the agreement which the British government has made with France. lturtsla. and itatv. hind. inc each not tq conclude a separate peace with the central powers. In return for Belgium's consent to negotiate a separato peace, the Ger man government Is giving serious consideration to tho question of vol untarily withdrawing all troops from Belgian territory, Teutonic diplomats declare, and of a ding Belgians In the. work of restoration, Advantages for Gcrmanr. The advantages Germany might ex pect to reap from such a move ar6 outlined as follows: "Flret-Tho conclusion of a separate peace with Germany would automati cally divorce Belgium from the other allies. "Becond-The ocoupatlon by any of tho allies of any part of Belgian terri tory would becomo a violation of neu trality precisely comparable with tho much quoted violation of neutrality of which Germany has been declared guilty. "Third For the allies to commit such a breach of neutrality , after having usod it as an excuse tor making war on Germany Is too Inconsistent to bo possible. . Fourth With Immunity from attack from that portion of her frontier fac ing Belgium, Germany would have for disposal cisewhero the vast army now actually in -Belgium and In tho trenches on tho western portion of the battle line." ' In addition to tho vlows cxpressod in diplomatic quarters, cabled advices to day say that the Frankfurter Zeltunv, a paper closo to tho German govern ment, cdltorlully Urges negotiations for sepcrate peace between Germany nnd Belgium, and that all . but one of tho Socialist members of the Prussian Diet have subscribed to a declaration calling on tho German government to restoro to Belgium her independence. The British embassy has given out a statement saying that a distinguished Belgian Jesuit, lately returned from Borne, quotes tho Popo as declaring thnt he will never consent to, offer his good offices for re-cstablshlment of peace unless Belgium should have all her ter ritories in Kuropo and Asia restored to her, and an adequate Indemnity llxed after an Inventory df all public monu ments and prlvato property hnr shown the extent of the loss. iiiiiiii'Iii nn ; I l OLD-TIME COLD CURE-DRINK TEAl i I I I ii !
