Already Answered.
[By Ed. L. Keen, United Press Staff
Oorr eepondent.
LONDON, Dec. 13.—The British
people have already answered Ger
many's offer of peace—"no, not on
such a basis as proposed."
That answer was perfectly apipar
*ent today. It was reflected not only
in the newspaper comment, but in
expressions from the people on the
The nation looks to Lloyd-George
next Tuesday to frame this answer.
It cannot be a direct reply, since it
is hardly expected England's con
sultation with her allies over what
form the diplomatic answer shall be,
can be constructed that soon. But
Saturday will be Lloyd-George's first
appearance as premier before the
house of commons, and before news
of Germany's proposal came, he had
been announced as ready to outline
on that date, the aims and purposes
of the new cabinet.
Press and public alike look to
Lloyd-George on this occasion to voice
the nation's rejection of any peace
which is based on Germany's idea of
her victory.
Germany's peace terms, as given
out by a German embassy official in
Washington, were generally regarded
as preposterous and unworthy of ser-.
ious consideration here.
Lloyd-George's telegram to Premier
Briand of France, together with the
former's recent interview granted
the United Press, portions of wliich
were liberally reproduced in the Brit
ish press today, were considered in
dicative of Britain's ^attitude toward
Von Bethmann-Hollweg.
The only keynote of difference ob
servable in editoral comment today
was whether the allies, in their re
ply to the German' note should set
forth therein their own -terms upon
which peace discussion would be con
sidered. If the practical unanimity
of opinion of the press and public
means anything, the reply will be re
Press comment ranged today all the
way from the Daily Mail's suggestion
that Von Bethmann-Hollweg is "no
more entitled to the courtesy of a
reply "than an armed burglar in a
private house," to that made by the
Manchester Guardian that'negotia
tions should at least go as far as to
ascertain Germany's exact terms.
A number of newspapers point out
the desirability in view of the manner
in which Germany made her offer
that the allies in replying clearly
immciate their own aims in the war
for the benefit of the world's opin
ion that the terms on wfhich the al
lies are willing to enter peace ne
gotiations be clearly set forth. Such
comment holds that only in this way
can responsibility for the continuance
of the war—which responsibility Ger
many obviously seeks to place upon
the allies—be turned upon the central
Among numerous interviews with
public men, gathered by the London
.press, there is only one advocating ac
ceptance of Germany's proposition
and Immediate entrance into negotia
tions. That is the opinion voiced by
Philip Snowden, the empire's leading
pacifist, who considers that the al
lies --will incur an awful responsibility
if they decline. It Is at least their
duty, he holds to see whether the
German proposals contain the pos
sibility of ending the war on condi

The reasons for desiring a world
guaranty are these:
Germany would be well pleased t»

wants a way into ^t,sia Minor. Her
terms impose a hardship upon Russia
because she wants a .buffer between
that great nation ana ner eastern

be attained, probably.
Hence, right on that point the need

Belgium would be restpred but at a
terrible sacrifice. There wpuld be no
restitution for the ravages of war, un
jless perhaps, Germany should buy at

Belgium's fate in the present war,
officials think, makes the idea of a
world guaranty of peace even morp
essential than perhaps do the questions
of a possible threat of Russia overrun

^Germany has aspirations in Asia
Minor. That is why she leaves the set

regularity marked the co'urse of the
wheat market,' the majority of the
trade being uncertain as to political
conditions abroad, which are the rul
ing factor at present. -The active de
livery covered a range of four cents
and around# mid-day, made a new low
level on the present down turn. While
a desire for peace is generally ex
pressed, it is not anticipated by the
majority of the public. Tlje outcome
of pre&nt negotiations can not be
forseen, beyond that they will be a
veiy unsettling factor in the grain
market for some time. The one thing
that is certain is that traders should
observe the greatest caution under
present conditions.
Corn—The presence of buying or
ders that were credited to export ac
count' held corn comparatively steady.
The bulk of the trade was around last
night's closing level. The holding
tendency of farmers has combined
witl\ the car shortage to create a
string position in cash corn, but tho
pflces are too high to warrant invest
ment in future deliveries at this
-period of the crop movement.
Oatfr—Oats suffered from further
liquidation early today, but the mar
ket recovered most of the early de
cline. There was a good demand for
the spot article and local receipts
were small. The sale of 60,000 bush
els was reported at the seaboard yes
