Briand former premier, agreed this even- ing to attempt the formation of a cabinet In succession to the Ley- gues ministry, which resigned Wednesday. PARIS, Jan. Peret, who was asked yesterday to head a new ministry of France in suc- cession to the one '.vhich resigned an Wednesday, appeared before President Millerand today and de- clined to form the cabinet. M. Peret's failure to form a min- istry was due largely to the re- fusal of former President Poln- caro to enter the combination ex- cept under conditions that madtf it difficult for M. Peret to carry out his program. M. Poincare, it is understood, desired the foreign ministry, but ex-Premier Briand was the man Peret had picked for this office because of his quail-' ties as a negotiator and his strength with the European chan- cellories. The failure of M. Peret to assemble a government will, it seems certain, prevent the formation of a new min- istry in time for tha propdaed inter allied conference, set lor January IS and the postponement of the meeting appears probable.
