more men to strengthen the British
fighting forces.
The premier evinced a strong dis-
trust of Germany's honesty. He de-
clared that no peace terms would- be
recognized by Emperor William, Field
Marshal von Hindenburg, General von
Ludendorff, and the other militaristic
elements, unless the British had the
power to enforce them.

Demand Refused
Germany had sent the answer of
"never" to the demand for the right-
ings of the wrongs done to Belgium,
the premier declared.
In giving his open opinion on .the
situation the premier told his hearers
that they might as well stop fighting
unless they were going to do it with
all their might.
Discussions To Continue
Notwithstanding the apparently in-
superable barrier that was reported
to exist between the Austro-Germans
and the Bolsheviki representatives at
the peace conferences, the Bolsheviki
foreign minister has agreed' to a con-
tinuation of the discussions.
