Only from Secretary Balfour is an exhaustive discussion of our suggestion available. His Argument.4 show bow correctly Karon Durlim's proposal Judged the situation and that only tho adoption of Baron Durlan's line o� thinking could master tho confusion of minds prevailing everywhere until today. "Tho peace question, as discussed by Secretary Balfour-ami the same applies to the debates In the French and American senates-under the pros-sure of big catchwords and overmastering passion, can naturally make no favorable progress. Especially regarding Mr. Ualfour'a speech It must be pointed out that It contain* a 8�r-les of rash conclusions concerning the attltudo of tho central powers toward concrete peace questions, which wo would not have arrived at had he entered into ii discussion ot the spirit of Karon Uuiian's proposal.
