London, Jan. B Pending the re
sumption of conferences In Brest
Litovsk today no fresh developments
are reported from Russia regarding
the peace negotiations. Dispatches
from Petrograd report attempts by
the German delegates in Petrograd to
make some sort of clandestine agree
mMit with the mninhers ef the con
stituent assembly.
The correspondent of the Daily
News says the Germans are trying
through a neutral diplomat to get
ww wiimiuiiivaui'B ... ..... u . . -j
the assembly. Their object is ob
vious, he adds, as the parties opposed
to the Bolshevlkl are quite ready to
profit by the Bolshevik refusal to
make peace and to tell the people
that the Bolshevlkl promised them
peace but gave them war.
The version of the correspondent
t the Dally Mail Is that the Germans
hve been patting pressure, direct or
Indirect, on the government In con
meetloa with the summoning of a
constituent assembly as the Germans
have been making It pretty obvious
that they are unwilling to recognize
the Bolshevlkl as representatives of
a majority oC the Russian people or
even as temporary trustees of the
sovereign power. The Daily News
dispatch expresses fear that Ger
many will find the constituent as
sembly more amenable than the Bol
shevlkl in regard to making peace
and quotes Foreign Minister Trotzky
as saying that the bourgeois are pre
pared to give away half the country,
if they eaa obtain control of the
government of the other half.
Regarding the altitude of the Uk
raine toward the Germans, the Daily
1 News says the rada is willing to strike
' a bargain with the Germans. The
Petrograd correspondent of the
. Times, who ta now In London, writes
the Ukrainians are determined to
: send a mission to Brest-Lltovsk, not
, to negotiate a separate peace but to
j ascertain Germany's Intentions toward
1 Ltttte Russia, i The Germans are
willing, he says, to recognise the
rada on the bdsls that the Ukraine
I supply Germany with foodstuffs and
recognize German economic interests
In the Ukraine. Neither of these
i points the correspondent adds, Is to
LiUttla Russia's taste, but If the Allies
fall to help the Ukrainians or adopt
a policy of compromise with the Bol
sfaevlU the rada may have to yield
) and the Onssacks, too.
. Newspapers in Petrograd continue
i to report fighting in the south where,
i recording to the correspondent of the
Times, civil war is waging fast and
fiarfooa. In several places there are
reported to have been scenes of fierce
fighting. These Include Ekaterino-
1 Slav where it is said fighting already,
has lasted five days. However, as
I communication south and east of
Petrograd is precarious at the best,
1 the reports convey little Information.
The Aastro-Garman delegations in

tbat the Allies have decided to
break relations with Russia. Per-
, haps this is the reason why the offl
; etala of the British embassy have
1 taken pains to assure Trotxky that the
departure of Sir George Buchanan is
purely on account of ill health and
that he would have left last March
. but for the persuasion of former

London, Jan. 5 When the , dele
gates of the Central powers arrived in
Brest-Litovsk to resume . the peace
negotiations they found no Russian
delegates there, according to a Vien
na dispatch to Zurich. All that await
ed them was a telegram from the
Russians asking for transfer of the
negotiations to Stockholm.
Although the Bolshevikl foreirn
minister, Trotzky, announced that the
German peace terms would not be ac
cepted, it was expected that the Rus
sian delgates would return to Brest
Litovsk for meetings which were to
b,e resumed today, to Inform the
Central powers of Russia's attitude.
The Russians requested transference
of the negotiations to Stockholm, be
cause they would have less difficulty
there in obtaining full publicity con
cerning the negotiations, and because
they preferred a neutral place to the
German eastern headquarters for
holding tha discussions. The German
chancellor, Count von Hertllng, told
the reichstag main committee on
Thursday that the German delegates
had been instructed to refuse to trans
fer the negotiations to Stockholm.

Ernes Want Ada One Cent a Word
Italian Army Headquarters In
Northern Italy, Jan. 5 (By the As
sociated Press) The officer com
manding the 1,400 Austrian pris
oners captured In the recent French
success on Monte Tomba gave the
correspondent an opportunity today
of going among them and talking
freely with officers and men on war
conditions and what the enemy still
could do in carrying on the struggle.
A more miserable lot of human be
ings would be difficult to imagine.
The officers were In even worse con
dition than the men. Their clothing
was ragged and the tinselled orna
mentation on the officers was gan
grened with rust
The officers were unkempt and had
not been shaved for a week. Their
red hands looked like pieces of raw
beefsteak. None had an overcoat, as
all were wearing light trench - uni
forms when the French swept around
them. Yet despite this misery, they
put on a surprisingly bold front and
any one thinking they are crushed is
closing his eyes to facts.
The correspondent met the prison
ers on a road leading to the town
where they are rounded up prepara
tory to being set to work or sent to
a prison camp. Small detachments
were stretched along the road for
some distance, . each group being
guarded by French soldiers. One de
tachment carried spades and picks In
stead of guns.
All ages were seen among the pris
oners. There was a boy of 18 and a
man of 50 with a grey beard. A coat
ing of trench mud made them look
worse than they really were, for they
had stout boot, leggings and over
coats. Borne had shawls and blankets.
Their head sear consisted of batter
ed helmets and caps with heavy
They tramped along sullenly to
large court yards where food was dis
tributed. Each man got a small tin
of meat and a large chunk of bread.
The correspondent tasted the bread
and found It better" in quality than
that he had been getting in first class
restaurants. The prisoners ate like
ravenous animals and said It was the
best food they had had in weeks.
The correspondent was told by the
prisoners that the method of the
French attack was an entirely new
experience for them, as they seldom
had undergone such murderous artil
lery Are. Most of the men were Moravi
ans, Dalmatians and Gallcians. The
sudden French charge, after the ar
tillery fire, bowled them over before
they had any chance to offer resist
ance. They all expressed themselves
as heartily sick of the war, and said
the Germans were keeping the others
In the fight
As the officers 'came from their
quarters It was seen that they were
chiefly Hungarians, with some Morav
ians and Dalmatians and one Galhcian.
They were "very cold and their first
request was for warm food.
- "We have not had warm food -for
days," said their spokesman, a stocky
young almatlan officer.
"And our own French soldiers did
not have warm food for nine' days
after they arrived here," said the
commandant He explained that
fuel was almost impossible to get and
with no coal and little wood hot food
was almost out of the question. The
commandant told the officers that if
they had a soldier barber he would
be permitted to come and shave them
and clean their boots and uniforms.
Asked about the war, the officers
gave America's entry to It as an in
stance that all the world was against
the Central powers. One officer said
the food supply was running low, but
it was better in Hungary than in
Austria. They thought, however,
that -Austria-Hungary could hang on.
Asked about the ragged condition of
their uniforms, one officer said:
"Yes, we are ragged and look like
tramps, but what does that count in
The officers were very anxious to
know when they would be removed
to prison camps in France, and seem
ed gratified t,o learn that they proba
bly would go through Paris within
two weeks. After taking turns in
getting warm around the camp fire,
the officers returned to their quar
Peking, Jan. 5 The negotiations
by which Japan was to advance 10,
000,000 pounds to China to improve
the position of the Bank of China
were to have been completed yester
day, but the signing was postponed
at the last moment. The delay is de
clared to be due to the decision of
American, French and British bank
ing groups to participate actively in
the loan.
A dispatch from Peking on Dec. 31
said Japan would loan the money to
China with the object of exercising
control over currency reforms. The
Japanese, it was added, had notified
the other banking groups that unless
they were willing to participate in the
loan it would be negotiated solely by
Japanese' interests.
Melbourne, Australia, Jan. 5 The
Nationalist party' having decided that
in its opinion it was to the best in
terests of the country and the em-
, pire that Premier Hushes toe retained
; as leader or the party. It is expected
j that the Premier will be commission
ed to form a new ministry. There
probably will be few changes.
The decision of the party was
reached at a meeting today at which
the premier intimated that, In fulfil
ment of its pledge to, retire if the re
ferendum should go against conscrip
tion, the ministry probably would re
sign in the immediate future.
