' ' President Wilson warned the American people In a Flag Day address on the Washington monument grounds today that Germany has carried into effect the greater part of her immediate plan of conquest and now is negotiating a new "Intrigue of peace" designed to end the war while her aggressions are secure. All the Central Empires, the President declared, have been cemented ldto on9 great autocracy-ridden Empire, "throwing a broad belt of German military power and political conl trol across the very center of Europe and beyond the Mediterranean into the heart of Asia." This accomplished, he said, it is easy to understand why Germany is fostering a propaganda for an early peace. !
