proof that Italy would receive "very

President Wllwon pointed out that

a corridor for Klurtie ran "counter
to every consideration of ceiiRni

that whereas Italy's denmnd for tho
annexation of all Istrla had been re.
Jected In tho former oRreement "on
tho solid ground that 'neither strato.
Rlc nor economic considerations
could Justify iich annexation." tho
nRrecment of January 14 provided
for "this unjust and Inexpedient an

(Hi Italy' Cunt rot.

cluded every formof Italian sover

"avoid tho conclusion" that tho
nRrecment of January 1 4 "opens tho
way for Italian control of Flume's
forelcn affairs." Th president said
ho felt tllo orlRlnal nRrecment rhvo
proper protection to the railway con
necting Flume wltlv tho Interior, but
thnt tho npreement of JaSiuary 14,
established Italy "In dontlnatlnR mil

Tho Amorlcan Rovernment, the 1

Slavs than tho original proposal Tho
premiers argued that the gu.iran
tees of tho jeagilo of nations were
sufficient to guard against tho an
nexation President W'llMin feared
and his criticism of Italian domina
tion of tho railway they replied to
by holdlbt; It "a commercial and not
a strategic railway," and adtlng that
"under President Wilson's proposals
It Is comimtndcd by Italian Runs."
Dotnlls of the Administration of
Albania, they said, were yet to ho
elaborated and tho feelings "anil
future Interest of tho Albanian peo
ple" were to bo regarded. Tito pro
mlers found "difficulty Itf under
standing tho present attitude, of tho
United States and hoped their ex
planations would lead to a recon
sideration of Precldont Wilson's at
titude. They disclaimed any destro
"to forco a settlement unacceptable
t.) the president of the I'nlted States
nnd added that they would not at
tempt to Insist on its acceptance
until nfter hearing his views." .
In a lengthy argument tho pre
miers drlared "the proposal of De
comber 0 ha? fallen to tho ground
because nobody now wants to set up
tho artificial free state of Flume."
and added that tho I'nlted Sia'.es
having no "represcntallvo nt tho do
s(nce I s plenipotentiaries retilrned
lo America ' Palling liv secure an
ng cod Miticmcnt they had no choice
but to ro.y on tho traty of London,
which, tin premiers said, they never
had concealed from the president
and which they felt bound to apply,
falling to securn another agreement.
