Gen Villa has replied fa vorably to president Wilson's recent suggestion that the forces in Mexico unite for peace. . Villistas here express the opinion that, since the Carranza reply to Wash ington, there is now little hope of the two forces getting together. It is p inted out that Carranza. in his re pl practically ignores the Villa sug gestions of a conference, making the point that he is entitled to recognition. CarrancLStas are unanimous la their approval of the note, declaring that ilia, after his recent defeats, is at tempting to score a point by agreeing to a conference when in reality his tac tion so longer merits consideration.

Mr. Bryan issued Saturday a state ment saying the new note to Germany had been somewhat softened after his retirement had been announced.

II ADVOCflTES LEAD IN GREECE GUN HI SEE ID Newspapers of Berlin Com ment Favorable or Oth erwise on U. S. Note. Berlin, Germany, June 14. German opinion, as reflected by editorials in the leading newspapers, seems divided regarding the second American note to Germany upon tne Lusitapia Incident. Some papers look upon president Wil son's note as reasonable and predict a favorable outcome through a com promise. Others pick flaws in the note and favor a standpat, attitude on the part of the Imperial government. Among the representatives of the latter idea the Tagliche Rundschau, which declares that while the noje seeks a way to a compromise, it seeks it along lines "which must result to the disadvantage of Germany." The Tagliche Rundschau continues: "The note, the.tore, is calculated only to postpone & settlement of German-American relations and not bring it about. The friendly tone we acKnowl- , edge, but the declaration that the sink- i ing of the Lusitania was unparalleled In modern warefare seems opposed a the character of upright friendhsip." The Rundschau defends the sinking of the Lusitanla, and1 in conclusion de clares: "And the watchword is: The torpedoing will go on.'" Points To Germany's Rights. The Kreuz Zeltung emphasizes Ger many's right to prevent the shipment of ammunition to any enemy by every means. It also Is unable to see what England can offer in return for the abandonment of the submarine cam paign, "since the plan to starve Ger many has finally failed." uount von Keveauow, .in the TTH, "W'SSSXSt - "If -president "Wilson persists ta fets refusal to receenize Ihe German deelar- J.ation of a war zone, we are not able to conceive or anjagreement or even a real understanding." Connt van Reventlow adds: "President Wilson brushes aside with a light gesture the chief part of the German note as unimportant. When president Wilson appeals for morality and human rights, let him extend these noble motives first to American muni tions. Germany cannot abandon the use of her best Implement of war merely in order that Americans may sail the war zone on British ships." Friendliness Fills ?ote. The Morgan Post says: "The note is filled with tones of friendliness, and seeks to open and smooth over the way for further nego tiations. The offer to mediate between Germany and Great Britain will un questionably be gladly accepted by the SSS?" govee'yand ifedn9 fails, it wnilUfirt nSf:;-."X- 1 111s. it will be Great Britain's fault" ThcMorgan Post praises the unrltrM ' -.. --....... ..... . ness of the United States and hopes that it will be possible to demonstrate that Germany is acting within her rights. Sees Hope Of Settlement. The Tageblatt says: "It cannot be seeh why the German government should not be ahl tn uitr into a discussion with the America I government nuw.minv ni. m.j 1 government concerning another kind and -manner of naval warfare. This possibility is increased by the Amer ican oner or mediation with England. The answer will not be ready for sev eral weeks, but it must be said the German people, now as before, lay great weight on undisturbed relations with the United State. wHaka n-aM r liberation they once Joyfully greeted and within whose borders millions of Germans have found new homes. I "The earnest character of the note . may not oe overlooked, but it contains nothing which even indirectly can be looked upon as an ultimatum." Pout Is D!aatlat!ed. Die Post is dissatisfied, saying: "The note sails the old course and demands the cessation of our submarine campaign and again emphasizes the re markable special right of American citizens to voyage through a war zone as passengers on ships belonging to belligerent nowers." The newspaper says that negotiations will continue, h-it whether a real result can be obtanied is questionable, since this demand of the "Anglo-Americans" that the submarine warfare h RiimnM discussions." ' lies ouisiae ine arnn nr nraitii . Arguments Qnlf DnmnTlnrini.. Th Kreuz Zeltung finds the argu ments contained in the American note 'quite unconvincing" "The note," It says, "tries to meet Germany's well considered arguments with an appeal to humanitarian duties, whereas Germany's first humanitarian duty is to protect her soldiers from American ammunition shipments." ITALIANS EMPLOY STRATEGY; TAKE FORTIFIED POSITION Verona. Italy. June 14. By the exer cise of strategy, the Italians without the loss of a man liave captured Monte Zugna, a strongly defended Austrian position, four miles northeast of Ala. The position was surrounded bv strong wire entanglements and three lines of trenches. A platform had been built upon it for cannon. The position comprised also two large barracks which are reported to have cost SSM. 000 and which possessed the most mod ern equipment.
