London, June 14,-(British Admiralty per Wireless Press.)-On the strength of the military situation in France, the German militarist journals apparently have been inspired to put forward new German peace terms of the most aggressive character. _ There is not much talk now of peace without indemnities and annexations. On the contrary, there is to be the severest punishment for all Germany's opponents, according to .these newspapers. The Kreuse Zeitung says that as regards Great Britain, Germany will require the reduction of the British navy to a maritime police force, the cession to an international council of Ijibraltar, iVlalta, "Aden and Singapore; guarantees against economic measures against German trade and provision for the supply to Germany of raw materials under the most favored nation terms and the restoration of all ccnqucrcd German colonies. In return for these cessions Germany would be prepared to retire from Belgium, taking the Congo state in her pocket. The Kreu7e Zeitung says it thinks this is, on the whole a modest programme.

Tho enemy has won a strip of territory not without value, but has sacrificed tor 11 precious divisions without at any ijoint attaining his objective and without bringing him any nearer a decisive result. Sucii is also the opinion of Henri Bidou and Colonel Do Thomusson, who would be the last ijersons to hail a victory pre-juaturel.v. BRITISH REPULSED GERMAN ATTACK.

IfOndon, June 14.-The German crown prince continues his desperate attempt to overcome the ditflcult forest regions barring his way into the Olse Valley, hnd although by heavy fighting he gets a little nearer to Complegne, hla progress is very slow. Thursday's reports are considered satisfactory. The enemy has progressed about a mile on a v^ry narrow front northeast of Vlllers-Cptterets. but the French troops are showing such determination and courage In coimtor attacks that although reports from Parl.s intimate it may be necessary to give further ground in face of superior numbers, there exists a spirit of ciuiet confidence and trust in General Poch's prudent handling of the situation. The battle Is regarded here as a contest'between opposing reserves. It Is known that the crown prince - has beein compelled to dra.v slightly upon .the reserves of Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria, as .some of' Uupprecht's own men have been Identkled iamong tho twenty .Jiv'slons the Germans have employed since June y. The enemy Ibssos have heon fur heavier after five days ot bitter fighting during which he only advanced about six miles than during any previous engagements on tho Aisne. The view of military experts aim Is that the enemy's main attack has not yet been dellvorea. FIVE DAYS SUFFICED TO STOP OFFENSIVE . With the French -Army in France, June 13.-Five days sufficed to stay the German offensive between Jlont DIdler and Noyon whose objective was Complegne. Despite long preparations U\e Germans were unable to overcome French resistance and brilUant counter attacks by ther alU�d troops took back' everything ot importance which, leH into the hands of the eneiny. during the first rusli with large masses ot troops. The Germans certainly gained some little ground but their design failed lu its great lines. ^ . Today there was an unsuccessful German attack wbst o{ tho Olse but the battle front elsewhere in this region',',was ctilm. This may be a algn that tho enemy has roriouncedfuHher efforts in this direction and is about'to Btart elsewhere.
