"Chancellor von Bethmann llol
weg is expected in Vienna shortly

which the Central Powers will ac
cept peace. After discussing the

Paris, Dec. 30.—The Austrian

a mine and the destroyer Triglav
sunk in a naval action with an al
lied squadron in the Adriatic off
Durazzo, the ministry of marine
announced today.
"An Austrian squadron left Cat
tero to bombard Durazzo and en
countered an allied squadron that
gave battle," said the official com
munique. "The Austrian destroyer
Litta was blown up by a mine and
the destroyer Tiiglav was sunk.
The other enemy ships fied."
The destroyer Triglav was built

w as 266 feet long. She was one of
the newest Austrian destroyers,
