and Baltic - German troops have forci-1

Letfsh provisional government, ac
cording to advices received by the Let
tish press bureau here.
(By the Associated Pres)
Conflicting claims to the city r'
Flume and the Dalmatian coast which
have boon laid before the peace con-,
ference in Pasis bv Italy and Jugo
slavia probably ill be brought to n
decision soon.
This controvert has aroused pub
lic sentiment in Italy and when the
Italian parliament meets April 24 it
is probable Premier Orlando will be j
asked for a "report on the subject.!
I Hence, he is said especially to desire
a settlement before that date
Conversations on the Adriatic prob
lem have been going on in Paris for
some time, but n is indicated thai a
, settlement has not been reached
The Allied terms of peace probably!
will not be laid before the Germans'
until Saturday of nexl week and it
ma not be until the following Monday
thai the enemy delegate learn the
I details of the treaty. This will delay
I proceedings to some extent, it is be
lieved, and it is not expected that the
German delegation can go to Weimar,
receive instructions and return to Par
is before May 8. ,
According to present plans. the Ger
man delegates will be permitted to
ask questions to elucidate obscure
poini.v but nolhinq approaching a dis- j
cuBSlon of the terms will be permit-'
ted. Only President Wilson and the
Allied premiere will be present when
ihe terms are p resented to the Ger
mans. It is expected the league of
nation? will have the place ot honor in'
the terms to be presented. 1
Japan to Frcsent Question
lapan will bring before the council
if four on Saturda;. ih object of Kiao
Chau, the German fortress in the Far
East.
Premier Clomcnccau, who refused on
Wednesday to join in the conditional
agreement to feed Russia through neu
tral nations, has at last attached his
name to the undertaking. Letters ex-
hanged between the council of lour
and the committee in charge of send
ing supplies to the Russians indicate
that conditions in Russia are critical.
Libau Seized by Germans
Libau has been .seized by German
and Baltic-German iroops. according
to advices received aft. Copenhagen.
The Lettish provisions! government
has been ousted, according to tbe re
