AVo should j not think of entering into any peace negotiations except in common with our Allies, in accordance with the agreement of September 5, 1914. This has always been made perfectly clear." Sir Edward Carson Sir EUward Carson: "If there has been a report current abroad that even an inconclusive peace wo.uld be welcomed at the present moment, I can only say that any person in tbis country, who directly or indirectly is a party to such a scheme would find it impossible to ever hold up their heads again among their fellow.coun- trymen, not merely at home but throughout the British Empire, In- conclusive?

The Germans expected a walk-over. They expected to be in Paris inside of ten days, but more than 400 days bave now elapaed, and they are not thore yet, and there is very little pros' pect.ot them ever getting tbere. "Germany lias struck her blow, and so far as the government is concern- ed, it has been a failure.
