The United Slates, through its latest proposals, seeks to secure tho elimination by Gel-many of its naval war zone an'd the adop- tion by the belligerents of a definite policy regarding food to civilian population. Officials here are said to...be somewhat encouraged over the manner in which the proposals have been received by the Brit- ish government which has- sitb- mitted them to her allic-vFrance and Hussia. Unofficial ad vices re- ported Germany as inclined to accept the proposals, although it was said that German officials did not believe Great Britain make concessions.

The ambassador said it i'ns a subject of serious concern. that th uKsians have made a stand 01 eir own soil the fightiug in the Eastern arena of the war is re solving itself into a mass of con tradictory statements and countei claims. The German claims of a victory lin Russian Poland arc circumstan- tial and detailed. The Russian de- nials while emphatic, are sweeping and general. It appears from despatches reaching London that at the pres- ent moment neither the Anstrians nor the Germans are making headway anywhere on the line from the Baltic to the Carpathi- ans. British observers are calling attention to the fact that there ap- parently has been no decisive bat- tle at the northern extremity of the line to prove whether 'the re- cent advance will be of lasting value or not.
