PEACE PUNS ARE CALLED OFF FOR TIME CENTRAL POWERS WILL NOT TRANSFER TO STOCKHOLM— GERMAN SOCIALISTS HAVE MILLING London, Jan. 7.—An official state ment issued at Berlin yesterday and forwarded by the Zurich correspond ent of the Exchange agency announc ed tha% because of the Russian re quest to transfer the peace pour parlers from Brest-Litovsk to Stock holm, the central powers had tempor arily suspended the negotiations with Russia. The message said: "Another crown council was held today at Berlin, which Field Marshal Von Hindenburg and General Von Ludendorf attended. After the meet ing, the following statement was is sued: 'In consequence of the request of the Russian government to transfer the seat of negotiations frotn Brest Litovsk to Stockholm, the central powers have temporarily suspended the negotiations with Russia.'" Dispatches from Petrograd dated Friday and Saturday, confirm previ ous reports that the Russian peace delegation, including Leon Trotsky, the Bolshevik foreign minister, re turned to Brest-Litovsk, in an en deavor to arrange for a transfer of .the negotiations to neutral territory. The German refusal to acquiesce in the Russia demands, according to these dispatches, was based on the fact that their delegates already had arrived at Brest-Litovsk. Armistice In Ukraine An armistice has been declared in the Ukraine region, the Rada, the Ukrainian legislative body an dthe Bolsheviki having agreed to a com promise of their differences. The Rada is said to be ready to decline to give support to General Kaledines and his Cossacks in return for the withdrawal of the Bolshevik troops from the Ukraine. The Petrograd Post says the king of Rumania has cabled the entente allies that the Rumanians are deter mined to continue the war, notwith standing the desire of the troops on the Russian Rumanian front, and that M. Poincare, the French presi dent, replied, assuring the king of France's support. The French government has pro tested against the seizure of French •banks in Petrograd. The central executive of the Work men's and Soldiers' deputies, has de cided to assemble the third congress of the workmen's and soldiers' depu ties Jan. 21. According to M. Zino vieff, one of the Bolshevik leaders, there is no intention to conceal the fact that the motive for calling the congress is to oppose the constituent assembly, which, in view of the fact that the candidates were nominated before the October revolution, were not representative of the country. M. Zinovieff says the Bolshevik program would be submitted to the constituent assembly for approval, and if the as sembly is willing to work in harmony, it will justify the hopes and expecta tions of the people. On the contrary should it reject the Bolshevik pro gram, the assembly would find itself in conflict with the laboring masses and be brushed away. Socialists Aroused Amsterdam, Jan. 7.—There was a more calm feeling in German parlia mentary circles Sunday afternoon, according to The Tageblatt, and the reichstag majority parties firmly, in tend to support the government. On the other hand the Socialists held meetings on Sunday, which Vor waerts calls "perhaps the most mo mentous" since August, 1914. The Socialist organ says that the Social ist party will make its attitude de pendent on whether the government returns to the declarations made on Dec. 25. In the meantime. The Tageblatt says, the annexationists are making every effort t\ overthrow Foreign Secretary von Kuehlmann, certain serious consequences, being threat ened openly if he stays in office. Dr. Wekerle, the Hungarian prem ier, and Dr. von Wimmer, the Aus trian minister of finance, have arriv ed in Berlin.
