German Opinion Being Skillfully Mould- ed to Accept Quote Long Odds Against Ending Berlin. May, via London .May Gradually, unobtrusively and skill fully, German public opinion is lie- political, censorship never worked so admirably or sanely tban at tlie pres- ent time in its manipulation or tlie all-absorbing peace theme. Odds Against Peace London. May to December :Ust. )eccinlier Slst. A few days ago Lloyd's offered even money that tlio war would not end this year. Today insurance brok- ers are willing to wafer :i to'_ 1. that the war would not end in H'lii.

Consensus of opinion among London- ers is that Grey's statement in Mi ouse of Commgns has killed hopes of peace on Germany's terms. From Enemy's Standpoint May Berlin and London, May Vienna press generally turns today to the subject of peace am] discusses at length the imperial chancellor's latest utterances which only the non-committal Frem- denblaU does not proclaim a distinct- ly hopeful sign. The Nieue Freie Pressc finds tlie journalistic exchange between Dr. Von Bethiminn-Ilollweg and Sir Edward Grey, the British foreign secretary, a "high gain" and adds: "A change in the feeling of England is already to be seen in Premier Asciuith's speech in which he did not mention Alsace- Lorraine, nor even Russia. The Pre- mier and foreign secretary are swal- lowing their words of the past. They deny that they ever desired the des- truction of Germany which Poincaire .auU Briand in their fear of collapse, still stammer about.. The policy of the destruction.qf Germany has moved Jts JieaUcuitirters from London to Paris The" Nletie- Freie1 Presse warns Sir Edward-Grey that the central powers will never agree to his proposal for an international conference, composed of neutral waiting nations, at which he would appear at tlie head of the entente and strengthened by Individ- ual friendly neutrals, win a victory i that the entente had been unable' to j win by arms. The Tageblatt says that Dr. Beth- words are "crystal clear, strong, sure and and adds: "That Germany today can and may speak of peace as its triumph. Nobody can discover the faintest sign of weariness on the part of tlie cen- tral powers, who, on the height of their achievements can plant the stan- dard of humanity.

In-' deed, this "idea may, yet lake form from the'success which has attended the music il events of the past three days. The festival closed last evening with the big concert in Wesley church, un- der the patronage of the Lieut-Gov- ernor, which was attended by what is said to he the largest audience ever gathered an Lethbridge. The huge auditorium was literally packed to the doors, and the applause which greeted each of the numbers rendered was tremendous. The Lieut-Governor himself received a prolonged ovation) when he came forward to present the prizes. He has won a warm place in the 'hearts of the Lethbridge people during his stay here. Praise for Lethbridge President Cos, of the central exec- utive'a't Edmonton, expressed himself to tile Herald last night as being greatly pleased with the efforts of Lethbridge Musicians.-While he was sorrj that medals Had not been award- ed in all cases, he was greatly delight- ed "with the success of the affair gen- erally. Messrs. Chubb and Thomas, the adjudicators, were also high' in their praise of Hie Lethbridge and district people and commented par- ticularly- on the that the perform- ances were in nearly every case of a very high standard, for which the musicians were to be' congratulated. Credit to iylr- Hughes Credit for bringing the festival to Lethbridge, must be given to 51r. Claude Hughes, choirmaster at Wes- ley; who has been connected with festival for so many years, and who the first man to broach the sub- Ject in Lethbridge, and to take tho chief responsibility upon himself of starting the big undertaking. To him perhaps more than to any other is due the energy and enthusiasm which has been instilled Into the local com- for when he first broached the matter, there were, many doublings winning choir, falling only four marks Jshlrid them. Hard-Work! ng Secretary Credit is to be given also to the in- defatigable secretary, Mrs. N. W. Allin, whose capacity for energetic effort is well known in Lethbridge. Mrs. Allin's hard work did much' to- wards the success of the festival. She was at all times unflagging in her in- terest and extreanely accomodating to all who .had occasion to call uyon her services. Mention has been made of the dis- appointing fact that the city of Cal- gary practically took no interest in the festival. It was felt that-a city of over people so close to Leth- bridge should have taken some active part in- a orovinclal affair such aa the festival."

That does lot mean that confidence is weaker, nit the events of the last few days rave aroused the people from the com- fortable feeling that the Verdun situa- tion had reached a comparatively iarmless deadlock and the German drive had failed. The .immensity of the new German effort compels recognition the fact :hat the danger is not yet over. News- papers do not try to hide the strug- gle's importance.
