It to have any connection with the
Piper murder, of his turning It over to

Holy See Believes That War
Must Continue Two or
Three Years More.
By Ε niteA Prett.
Washington, Sept. 19—Pope Bene
dict has made his last peace proffer,
according to official cables received
hero today. The Holy See believes
the war must go on at least two or
three years more—until the full effect I
of America's vast powers has been ]
felt and either a victory or α hope- !
less deadlock In the great struggle
Tho lTnited Press was Informed on
the highest authority today that the
Vatican realizes that peace or further
negotiations at present Impossible.
President Wilson's rejection of the
pope's last peace offer, which rejec
i tlon was heartily npproved by the
Allies, has convinced tho Vatican the
Allies want no peace which will leave
the Central powers under their pres
ent rulers. No peace is possible, as
the United Press announced semi
officially recently, which Is based on
mutual concessions as suggested by
• the pope.
' It is realized by the Vatican that the
Allies with America's vast resources
now thrown into the balance, have the
upper hand and can ring from the Cen
. tral powers α peace acceptable to de
. niocracy. Any further proffers from
. the Popo would bo foredoomed to
ι failure even as the Inst one. Official
- cables today Mate Vatican circles
l throw out the suggestion of an under

ρ England that no peace proposals from
