Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 6, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta France Will Not Yield Till Alsace and Lorraine are Recovered and Belgium and Serbia are Restored Paris, Dec. 6.-France will not make peace until Alsace and Lorraine are won, Belgium and Serbia restored, and "German imperialism and Prussian militarism are put beyond j the possibility of,-resurrection," Al-i bert Thomas, under secretary of war, aid yesterday. The/declaration of M. I Thomas is attaining widespread at- j tention as it is one of the. first state- 1  ments from a responsible. cabinet officer concerning the attitude of the Government in regard to peace. Allies Mutt Dictate London, Dec. 6,-Germany can bavc peace as soon as she likes, says the Post editorially, but only on the terms of the allies. "The Right answer to the German peace conspiracy," the editorial continues, "is for the allies to determine what shall be the terms of peace to lie dictated when the right moment comes. "In the case, of Great Britain, representatives from overseas Dominions must be called into council." The Post's Budapest correspondent dwells on the peace talk there. "In political circles in Hungary.," the Correspondent 'says,, "One hears noth- ing else but an early conclusion of the war. The return of Count Albert Apponyi from 'Copenhagen is eagerly awaited. He has been taking part in the Ked Cross conference and also had an unofficial,mission regarding peace possibilities': -The Hungarian Grand Lodge-of'Masons has voted to begin ceaseless work in favor of peace. The feminist society at a meeting held in honor of the late James Kicr Hardie,- -lias issued an appeal for peace on economic grounds, stating. "We have had enough murder and starvation."; , Hun Scheme Clear The Times in an editorial on German peace talk declares that German manoeuvres are perfectly transparent. The German government, says the Times, hopes to sow disfruut among the allies,' attract sympathy of soft-hearted neutrals and assuage increasing disappointment among the masses of their countrymen. : The Times is convinced.. .'"..that.. none of these hopes will be gratified and German field artillery advancing toward firing: line' to help against the Russian defences before Dvinsk. .�� . .

C-No solution has yet been reached of affairs in the Balkans. The Russian troops, though long poised for action near the frontier of Rumania have not yet, so far as is known, left their own territory. Rumania's policy still'is one of wavering, and the Greek situation, .despite diplomatic parleys and all sorbs of reports of successful settlement, remains undeveloped. ; According ; to latest reports from Athens, both the entente group of powers- and the Greek government are holding their ground, the entente reiterating its demands, and Greece refusing to make concessions inconsistent with her sovereign rights. ;  " [ An official communication has been issued at Athens to the effect that the Greek press does- not represent the views of the Hellenic' government which is said to be optimistic regarding a successful settlement, hut the ground for this optimism which has failed to impress the'newspapers and public either at Athens- or jn London, is not given. Premier Skouloudis .'again conferred Sunday with King Constantine, who afterward received the French "minis- ter to Greece, discussing the situation at some length. Since most of the questions pending, says the Renter's correspondent at Athens, air of a militarv natun; the impression is general that their solution depends upon the decision U the war council at Paris. The war council in Paris on Saturday, together with the text of IwivV adhesion to the psct oi London, agreeing not to conclude separate p"eace, and the arrival in Paris : oi General Porro, seco-id in comwan.1 of the Italian army, are regarded rere as gratifying signs of the increasing solidarity of tie uutentc allies, and it is hoped by the British public that this closer union will soon heal* fruit in a more ener^tic, Balkan campaign '1 Pursuing Serbians < The Bulgarians ar.; tuncc the further pursuit of -arbian forces through", "'A Albanian territory.

Interest in proceedings of the inquisitors is heightened by the fact that since their last session an additional arrest has bean made here, that of Baron George Wil-, helm Von Brincken,. who is charged with attempting to destroy commerce with the allies. Von.' Brincken is out on"$10,0.00 bail. His.arrest took place after it had been held that he was not, as he claimed, a military attache of the German Consul-General and hence not immune from arrest.
