NO PEACE TILL HUNS DEFEATED Pans, Sept. 27.- ( Hjvash-The-hope that there will be no question of peace with the central powers until they have been brought to admit their guilt was **pressed by Nikola Paehltch, the Serbian premier. In a statemtnt given out by him yesterday. He voiced the hope after having pointed out that the allied success on all the battlefields has opened up a prospect of the end of a struggle which has been imposed upon the world by the Germanic powers. Pramier Pachitch said he was glad that the great allied powers had proclaimed their sympathies with the liberation of the Cxecho-Slovaks and tn0 Poles and the formation by those nationalities of Independent states, and he hopsd that the allies also would -rscog-nlis the right of liberated Serbia and all her sons (th� Jugoslavs) to be united in an independent national existence. A declaration to this effect, the premier argued, would be timely now as It would paralyze all the intrigues engineered by Austria against the Serbian national union and at the same time against the general policy of the allies.
