Monday the American-Mexican

The militia troops will move as rap
idly as possible, but the question of
full transportation may mean seveial
weeks lefoie all will be returned.
The plan, as outlined by war oili-i-ials,
will be to start some of the mili

forces are under way, though it was
said perhaps Ids actual arrival at the
border may be awaited before en

Whether time will be allowed for
the Teutonic nations to state their
terms on their own initiative or
whether President Wilson will make
some move to give an opening remains
There are indications, however, that
if no statement of the Teutonic terms
forthcoming within a reasonable
time, the United States may seek
means to indicate the desirability of
such a course.
It was reiterated today that the
president had not determined on his
position and it was pointed out that
in his note he said he was indifferent
to the means employed for comparing
He is reluctant to judge between
the two replies and has not made
known his impressions of the entente
note. In other administration quar
ters it has been suggested, however.
that the objects which the president
had in mind could best he demonstrat
ed now by the central powers publicly
declaring their own terms.
Allies' Indignation Abates.
Otlicials are watching particularly
just now the trend: of public sentiment
ibroad and the apparent change since
the dispatch of the president's note
lias proved a source of increasing
The first feeling of indignation
among the allies because of the coin
cidence ot the president s proposal
with that of the central powers has
abated, it is believed here, and is be
ing replaced by a conviction that goo 1
may come of the American note.
No Early Peace.
There is no indication in official
circles, however, that an early peace
s thought probable.
On the contrary the statement of
tiie a Ties' objects, it is recognized, has
made acceptance by Germany veiy dif
ficult for the present, however far
it may have gone toward establishing
a preliminary basis which may fa
cditate peace negotiations when the
end of hostilities docs come. The ad
ministration is acting on the assump
tion that bitterness engendered by
the war cannot be healed in a moment
but that every step toward that end
brings a final approachment nearer.
First expressions of bitterness in
Germany over the entente reply are
somewhat discounted here and it is
felt there may be a change of senti
ment just as there were in the en
tente countries in regard to the presi
dent's note. It is conceded, however,
thaj for the present popular desire for
a prosecution of the war will be
Expect No Terms.
The German view here is that there
is little likelihood of a public state
mend of specific terms by the Teutonic
allies at this time, unless a further
move to that end is made by the presi
dent. Should a request for such a
statement be forwarded to Berlin,
however, it is declared Germany prob
ably would comply.
It has been the contention of Teu
tonic diplomats that, in proposing a
peace conference, Germany fulfilled
the president's suggestion that an
early occasion be sought for discus
sion of terms and that no other step
is called for unless there is a second
and more specific request.
