ID WORK FOR PEACE Rome, Dec. 24.-The Giornalo Do Italia, in an editorial today, .states that It refuses to believe in the good faith of the statement made by Giovanni GlolittI, ex-premier and former minister of the interior, that he Is now unwilling to aeo Italy make separate peace. The attitude of the ex-premier hag been regarded In political circles as a matter of great moment. The newspaper expresses the opinion that GioIItti's object Is to strengthen himself bo that he may obtain a place in power and then work for a peace that the allies might accept, and he in private conversations has mentioned this intention. Propaganda also is being carried on by GioIItti's followers, the Glornale ; De Italia point out, but adds that the I ex-premler probably will owait a more I promising situation next year in ord-. \ er to put his plan into execution. Ih ; this connection the newspaper quotes ' him as saying: "The appeal time how la unripe." j I C^t^-J-------f -i-'^---l-�- rlcweigbtpi catalogues quote articles mada to both mpaBure^ at iho same prices; aqd the time niust come when the three countries atlll retaining old �ysteniB, Britain, Rdssia and the Un-Iteil State*, will fall Into line with the mtefhatioital system.

Guillaeumat- thom It has been stated on the street that I had stated, "That our eleciric pl.iri* wtis overpowered." In 6asa there should be others having the same understanding, I wish to state that what I always said was "That our plant was badly out of balance, having a great surplus ot boiler power with a deficiency ot electrical power," which Is the case. It Is anticipated that the earnings ot the plant will pay for the new plant ro-quired without further burden on tiio tax payers. I am not taking any chances of thi.s by-Ia.w being defeated through indifference on my part. Give me your cooperation and don't let It be defeated by indltferenco on your part. r would call your attention to the nmall vote on the last electric by-law which gave 90 In favor and five against, nnd which shows a grav4 lack of interest on the part ot the rato payers.
