BITTER ATTACKS ARE AIMED "tBr P,iSS-" JQ ff mui. rAlliursis AGREE THAT WAR CANNOT TERMINATE TILL ONE OR ALL ENEMY NATIONS ARE CONQUERED. Berlin, Jan. 1 liitter attacks are being directed daily a;;ainst the Brit ish premier, David Lloyd George. IU is 1 eld by German editors and Htates men to bo mainly responsible for -the atlitude of the Entente powers as shown by their peace terms in the note to President Wilson. Lloyd tieorge is enarped with be ii.g Germany's most dangerous enemy in the Allied countries. The view taken here, now that the Germans have hud an opportunity to analyze the Allied note, is that tl-.j Entente powers imposed impossible terms to the American executive and that they knew in advance that Ger many could not accept them. This puts full responsibility for iho piolongation of the war upon the A! lied powers, it is declared in official circles and it will now be a fight ' a finish. Kiglning of such violence as the world has never known before will, it Is said, will mark the next campaigns of the warring nations. Every ounce of man and woman power, every scrap of fightin, mat;;; ial and every resource of the Centn.l Powers will be put into the fray. In a way the note has had a p-t pffect. It has welded together all po litical faction and has aroused the de termination to win at "all costs. Evev." the socialist newspaper Vorwaerts, which has been most outspoken, and which was the first to discuss peace, condemned the Allied note iu ttM saino ft'i'iiis arc the radical organs of the pan-German party. No Prospects of Peace. London, Jan. 15. Convinced that there is no prospect of a peace con ference in tlie immediate future, tho people of England are now turning their attention towards the next mili tary enterprises which the Allied war council is planning to launch. There is a liklihood that the Allies may try for an offensive cu several fronts at the same time. The military critic of the Times ex-pte.-fes the fear that the Allies have net enough men on the western front to cope with the Germans. He esti mates the German strength at 2,5t -0,-000 nun in the western theatre of war' and in this connection it must to borne in mind that, the Germans arc supported by numerless batteries of hi'' nuns and occupy positions w'aich they have been fortifying for two yer.rs.
