DELAWARE. OHIO, THl'RKItAY KVENING, I)E<EMBER 28, I91B. VOLCME74. NO. 218. PRICE TEN CENTS PER ENTENTE NATIONS AGREE ON PHRASING OF NOTES BY KI> L. KEENE Unified I'reess Staff Corres*i>ondent. London, Dec. 28—Dispatch of the allies reply to Germany's peace proposal is imminent. Information today indicated that the phraseology of the identical notes to he sent by all the entente nations, had practically been settled upon. Russia's reply—couched in the terms agreed upon by the allies—is already enroute to Paris, where it ■will be handed the American ambassador with France's note for transmission to Berlin some time within the next few days. From authoritative sources, the United Press learns the allied notes will contain: A rejection of a peace based on German made plans. A vigorously worded summary of the principles for which the allies contend they are fighting—to remove the menace of militarism, of might over right, of the rule of force over international law. Probably the allies will make etill clearer their aims and purposes by a recital of the "crimes" for which they proposed to hold Germany responsible. The note however will not state specifically the terms on which the allies will consent to talk peace. Such terms must be inferentially drawn from the statement of the Viims and purposes for which the allies are fighting. It will not consent to the peace conference urged by Germany. It will not admit' the timeliness of the German plea nor of President Wilson's suggestions. At the same time these allied notes go forward to the central powers, through the diplomatic agencies Of Spain, Switzerland and America, the allies will probably forward an Identic note answering President Wilson's peace suggestions. This American note is likely to point to the German reply and elaborate somewhat in meeting the American president's plea for a statement of principles. Probably also it w'.ll em phasize the importance to America of the establishment eventually of a peace of such performance as to pre vent all recurrence in the future of another such world disturbance according to authoritative information today. Such a peace, the note will point out can only be achieved by victorious establishment of the principles lor which the allies are striving. The Daily Telegraph today, cor TOborating yesterday's United Press dispatch asserts that the entente notes as approved by all the allies' will set forth "in plain .words, why the allies are fighting and what they are fighting for." In view of Washington dispatches, Intimating that President Wilson's note and Secretary of State Lansnig's original statement that the United States was "on the verge of war" •were based on the belief of American . qfflcialdom that German submarine •gra^aTe would shortly force the putting into effect of the threat of a diplomatic severance with Germany made in the Sussez note press and public comment was noticeably less bitter today. Robbers Escape With Loot Perry ville, Ind., Dec. 2 8—Robbers blew the safe of the L. A. Morgan bank here early today and escaped with loot amounting to several thousand dollars, it is believed.

El Paso, Tex., Dec. 28—Because of conflicting reports of the affair, an investigation is under way today into the outpost skirmish early today between Mexican snipers and -a patrol of the Third Kentucky national guard during which more than three hundred shots were fired across the Rio Grande river by the guardsmen, after a fusillade of shots from the Mexican side. The entire city and the militia camps were aroused by the sound of heavy firing shortly before 1 a. m. Regular army officers in the vicinity at the time declare they heard no shots from the Mexican side while others and officers of the guard on the patrol state that scattered firing continued several minutes from the other bank. Capt. E. W. Clark, in command ot Company L., Third Kentucky, on patrol duty above tbe union station stated that the first shots were fired at the patrol under Lieutenant Hale. The guardsmen dropped to the ground and opened fire at the spot where they saw flashes. Another detachment ran up and joined in the volleys, shooting at the flashes of the Mexican's rifles. So far as known there have been no casualties. Residents on the boulevard a mile from the scene of the shooting reported bullet holes in their houses. United States authorities have made a demand upon the Carranza military commander at Juarez to ascertain whether any of his men were stationed at the point where the shooting occurred or took part in the skirmish.

Miles, statistician for the state industrial commission.

GERMANY WEAKENS SAYS CZAR London, Dec. 2S—Germany is weakening; her peace proffers came from knowledge of waning strength and realization of the increased strength of her enemies, Czar Nich-i olas of Russia asserted today. ■Germany is feeling that her com-j jplete defeat is near, and near also is' the hour of retribution for all her wrongdoings and violations of moral law," the order said. "As in the time of her strength she declared war. so now, feeling her weakness, she suddenly offers to enter upon peace negotiations desiring to complete such negotiations before her military talent is exhausted."

New York, Dec. 2 8—That the 1 Lamport and Holt liner, Voltaire, long overdue at this port from Liver- ! pool, has been captured by a German 'submarine armed and turned into a Teutonic raider, was the report published here today. Twelve days after the Voltaire left Liverpool, wireless warnings of a new Teuton raider on the high seas were flashed to Hritish ships by the admiralty. London, Dec. 28—Attempt to vade Russian soil, north of Dobrudja or east of Moldavia is the next development in Field Marshal Von Mackensen's eastern offensive expected here. Advance of the Teutonic columns is being opposed in fierce fighting by the Russo-Ruman- lan troops. The German forces have lost heavily in their northward advance and from now on they will have even heavier fighting cut out for them, as the Russo-Rumanian lines are uow attaining their greatest strength through consolidation. Very little doubt existed here today in the minds of military experts that Mackensen's objective was Odessa, Russia. They recalled recent dispatches from the eastern front hinting that this was the point beyond Bucharest at which the Teutons were aiming. Almost seven- eighths of the entire territory of Rumania is now in German hands. Moldavia alone remains free from the Invader. Hut here the Russian and Rumanian line is safe from the sort of military tactics by which Von' ing BY ROBKRT J. BENDER l'nited Pre** Staff Corresixmedent. Washington, Dec. 28.—The fear that if present peace negotiations fail this nation then must clear its slate on the submarine situation with Germany, grew apace today. But President Wilson intends to push his peace work to the limit to avoid possible unpleasantness with Germany, if possible. Both President Wilson and Secretary Lansing have decided to maintain a discreet silence on this topic. There is now no mistaking, officials believe, that President Wilson's peace notes to the belligerents and the two subsequent "explanations" by Secretary Lansing, in effect, constituted a warning against any unbridled,acts of war that would involve American lives or rights. Since it has always been this government's attitude that violations which affect property are not even to be compared to violations which affect life, the warning is generally- interpreted as being directed, therefore chiefly against the central powers, whose submarines have not only destroyed and endangered American lives, but have also destroyed American property, admittedly in violation of all rules ot humanity !l and international warfare. Officials, however, are trying not to over-emphasize this as they really want to aid peace.
