Staff Correspondent Washington, D. C, Dec. 30.—President Wilson will not write "ants' on his peace proposals when be receives the expected rejection of his suggestions from tha entente allies. Although the entente reply, to the American note will differ In essentials from the reply to tbe Teuton al lies now completed and expected to be sent forward from Paris next Tuesday or Wednesday, both, it is positively known, will decline peace excepting on the terms of the allies. But the president, it was learned today, feels very certain teat in tha notes there will be real loopholes which will permit him to continue his efforts to find a common ground between the belligerents on which eventually peace negotiations can ba commenced. Despite the veil of secrecy imposed by tbe president on all peace moves confirmation was obtained today of tha fact, previously reported in these dispatches, that Ambassador Gerard has put at the disposal of the president, in complete confidence, an outline of the concessions. Germany is ready to make to end the war. The message from Mr. Gerard was one of tbe longest that official has sent from Berlin since* he assumed his duties there. It detailed the entire conver sation which he had with the foreign minister, Zimmerman, and also information which he secured trom the kaiser personally. Although only President Wilson and Secretary Lansing officially know all that was In the message, there is no disguising tbe fact that it has greatly strengthened the president's hope thW a why to- securing peace is not entirely a hopeless proposition. "*'' ^ThformWftm reaped Jttw Oantt embassy that the entente allies reply to Germany's- peace-, suigestton wiir* be made known to_lg_t8&' jj'**';■"£[ It was understood at the embassy, that tbe entente reply would be in strict conformity wtth Lloyd George's speech in the House of Commons. Embassy officials who pursued tbe London Spectator's account mt. what the allies' terms are, said tbey reminded them of one trying to bash a large check on a bank at which he bad no account Reports from Berlin that the President's note was accompanied by an additional' communication which was ln tbe nature of an explanation of President Wilson's position was not confirmed in official circles here. Both at the White Rouse and tbe state department it was said that nothing was known of such a note. It was suggested that the Berlin resort might be based on the receipt by Mr. Gerard of the data sent bim dealing wltb the sinking of the P. and O. liner Arabia. Thto note followed tha president's peace note and Mr. Gerard was directed to bring it to the immediate attention of the German foreign office Inasmuch as tbe British government denied to toto the claims of tbe German submarine commander that the Arabia was "off her usual course, plainly a government transport, had no women and children on board, and was carrying Cooley laborers to be used on fortification work." Officials said that it was entirely possible that this waa tha "supplemental" note the Berlin advices referred to. The activity of tha neutral nations slong peace lines is greatly encouraging the president He believes that when the people of the entente nations realize the earnest effort that is being made to end tbe war, they will insist that their governments treat the subject wtth. the utmost seriousness. And, it again was pointed est today ta official circles that every move tbe president has made to Sato has been directed more at the people of tha warring countries themselves than at their officials.

Washington, - D. C-, Dec. 30—The senate interstate commerce committee today completed plans to hurry the hearing on President Wilson's railway legislation -program. The serious veiled strike threat of the big four railroad employes brotherhoods has resulted in galvanizing Into action the machinery at the capital, which will precipitate one of the greatest battles ever staged there. Senator NewlandS, chairman, of the Senate Interstate commerce committee, will go ahead with the "compulsory arbitration" hearing regardless ot the opposition of the railroad brotherhoods. The hearings will begin Tuesday. "The hearings will not be halted by the opposition of the railroad employes," Senator Newlands declared to the International News Service today. *-"We will proceed as usual, but with expedition. I do not know just who wttl. appear before tbe committee next Tuesday, but representatives of the brotherhoods, the railroad companies and the general public have been invited, and I hope-tbe proposed legislation can get. early consideration in the Senate and House." Chairman Adamson, of tbe House Interstate commerce committee, who will not return .to Washington until congress reconvenes, is understood to be in thorough, accord with the administration plans. ' , ., The only weapon now in the hands of the railroad employes which can precipitate a crisis prior to the conclusion of the hearings, it is believed by administration leaders, is the strike order which may go out before tbs trace ends if It IS seen that their •Waft* r#fHa» The situation may develop into " a Tffee to see whether the -proposed new law can be put Into effect before 4 general strike is voted by tha employes. Big Pour May Use Big Stick. The "big four" railroad brotherhoods are preparing again to use tha "big stick," wielded with such signal success over congress last August, when tbe Adamson 8-hpur > law was Jammed through in record time. Prom trustworthy sources here, It was stated positively today that when tha time comes, if tbe 400,000 members ef the brotherhoods vote a general strike to combat the refusal of the railroads to put tbe Adamson law Into affect pending decision by the supreme court on Its constitutionality, the tactics of last August trill b* used. This would mean that a general strike order would go out In effect automatically unless a code message known only to the brotherhood heads was flashed to the local chair- men of the brotherhoods to stop the impending strike. The tacit promise that no strike would be called for two months at least is the ray of hope to which the administration Is looking for a resolution of tbe irritating problem. While no accurate estimate -oaa ba made of the action of the supreme court, department of justice officials are confident that a decision on tha constitutionality of the Adamson law will be handed down before that time. The administration plans to bring all possible pressure to bear to force through congress as early as possible the measure urged by the president - for the compulsory arbitration of difficulties between railways and their employes, keeping tbem »t their Jobs and forbidding lockouts by the railroads pending investigation of thm _vances of both. , \ si$A% A'-BWe* IS-pTWittlon to this measure the brotherhoods has been promised. rot by I Iu Hard Fighting Has Shifted m To Verdun; Germans Launch Sharp Attacks Along Meuse tnternational News Service.
