ESTABLISHED issa fcVASHINQTON, April tary Bryan today laid .before the diplomatic corps his plans for ait iti- Lernational. agreement for peace. -Al- most every ambassador and minister m Washington., was at .the Secretary's ofllce at noon in response -to his In- vitation and heard his explanation of the -plan which' soon will ba the basis of. treaty negotiations, fllr. Bryan Later said -'thq outline he presented to tho diplomats did not go into detail, because details are a matter of agree- ment -between the contracting- nations and, might different In different oases. "The statement pi-escnted to the diplomatic said Secretary Bryan, "is only intended to set forth the main proposition namely, that the president desires' to enter into an agreement with each nation for the investigation of all questions of every nature whatever. This agree- ment IB Intended to supplement the arbitration, treaties now In exist- ence and those that may b9 made hereafter. Arbitration treaties al- ready, except some questions tfrom arbitration. The agreement proposed by the President Is intended to close gap and leave no dispute -that can. become a cause for war without investigation. "The time within which the repprt in to -be made is left to be agreed upon-and it may be that the time will differ In different coses, but any lime, however short, furnishes an oppor- tunity for investigation and delibera- tion and It Is hoped the period .pro- vided for Investigation and delibera- tion rwill be sufficient to secure a set- tlement resort to war. "Each parly is to reserve the rig-hl to act Independently after a report is submitted, but is not likely that a. nation will declare war after It has had-an opportunity to confer, during the. investigation with. 'the opposing nation. "But whether tho proposed agree- ment accomplishes as much as la hoped for Is at lens I a step.in the 'direction- of universal peace, and I am .pleased to be tho agent through whtfin the President presents this proposition to powers represented POPE'S STRENGTH INCREASING.

April "Scutari is from tuday Montenegrin" is tlie defiant re-ply -of King A'lcholaa to the European invitation to sur- render the liard-won Turkish citadel. The kin? made this statement in the course of a speech delivered from Ihe balcony of the royal .palace, amone his audience being the ministers of tlie Balkan states, who came to con- gratulnie him. added: "Should Europe still ihlnk snatching Scu- tari from Montenegro, who has al- most given her life to take it, Europe will have to carry out thvs task by force of orms." AUSTRIA-HUNGARY ACTS. Asks to Send Ultimatum Or- dering Evacuation of Scutari. BDBLEX, April earj-. telegraphed to the powers .'that they -send an ultima turn ordering iJIbnteaicgra to evacuate Scutnrl' wtthtn 43.-hbuTs, according1, to an unconfirmed despatch from Vienna, to the Ketluns Am MU- Jag. Otherwise, Austria, declares .she will, with her allies, tali a steps -1o pro- tect her political interests. Thoro Are Indications Here -to- day of the seriousness with which the German government ond public regard the European which, according- to a hig-h diplomatic offl- cial. has entered another crisis tua grave 03 that which preceded Auatro-dluFsiari demobilization. The press bureau of the XJorman foreign offlcej contrary to Us custom, was not .prepared with statements either in rcg-aril 'to the ultimatum to 'Montenegro or to the general situation- An official; how- ever, believes it possible that a forcg would ultimately have to be employed to expel the Montenegrins who, It IB thought, will not retire from-Scutari voluntarily or in return for u loan or compensation elsewhere. Jt Is the ofllclal veiw hera ITtat al tho -Euro- pean powers will work together until the problem has been soEvcd. A feeling of consternation and hclp- lesatiess was displayed nt yesterday's conference of the jambassadors in London. Von Hethmann-Kollweg-, the imperial chancellor, and Gottlieb Von Jasow, the foreign mln later, visited the budget committee of the Imperial Parliament today, in order to make a confldenti.il communication lo it.i members In relation lo tha Inter- national situation. The cancellation by Emperor -William of his -proposed trip on the Impern.tor and hla deter- mination to return to Berlin frorn Hamburg1 April 2i, are attributed In well informer! -to tho crisis ijrnught about by the lall of Scutari. The stock market (iomoralized by tho fenrs of grave political com- plicntions. -Investors and jpecnlators started realising1 at the opening, then prices slightly recovered on tho strength of Premier speech and on the London Times's editorial artiole upon the Albanian nitiution. ON FUTURE OF ALBANIA. The Exchange of Communication! Be- tween and Vienna Aolive. JiO.VE, April and Aus- tria-Hungary being- directly interest- ed In the question of (Ao future of Albania, the exchange of communica- tions between Rome and Vienna is active. It appears that Austria-Hun- gary is determined lo act alone, if she is not backed up by the other powers, in obtaining the evacuation of Scu- tari by .the -Montenegrin. Such Action would almost certainly mean, accord- ing to well informed opinion ?t Kuropean conflagration. The- efforts of Italy, therefore, are directed at preventing1 the Isolation of Austria- nimgfiry and convincing Montenegro of the necessity of complying1 with tho decision of the conference of am- bassadors In London, If iht.s cannot be accomplished, the opinion prevails here that collective armed European intervention is Inevitable. H is pointed out that instead of re- taining" Scutari. .Montenegro might be given, besides financial eomp'ensa- lion, territorial recompense, including not only the district of Xovlpasar, but Ipek and perhaps Jakova, to the east of Scutari and Jn the vilayet of Kossovo. ovurucAi, April now Hal- inn .Drendnougiit -Duilio wos-launchnd (qjay at the navy yard at miiro, In tfce proacnce of tho king ahd qucisn orifnly and a larce BatherlnB of tho military naval aulhoiillts Queen Helton tha yeasel, MAY BEEN FOR BURNS.
