LONUOX, Dec 2S. The dispatch
of the allies reply is Imminent. The
phraseology is Identical, with the note
to the entente nations.
From authentic sources the United
Press learns the allied note will con
tain the rejection of peace as based

There is a vigorously worded sum

allied contend they are fighting for.
To remove the menace of militarism
and might over right, the rule of
force over international law. It will
probably make clear their alms by a
recital of the crimes which they pro
pose to hold Germany responsible for.
It does not state specifically the
terms on which the allies will consent

Germany. At the same time a note
will be sent answering Wilson's sug
