The majority of the reports of

no desire to add to the troubles of

Under the above head the True

evident that President Wilson Is at

for his proposals. Tho preliminary
meetings are being held, but the
world knows little about the dis

and they are giving out only the
bare outlines of the questions that
have been discussed. It is even
reported that . President . Wilson

If in the conference questions
are decided by a majority vote the
