Washington. May 2. Reports
fresh peace offers from L'erlin
hi ought forth the statement from the
British niission todav that a series of
feelers were expected during the next
few months as an immense amount
of quiet peace efforts had been under
way by Teutonic emmissaries.
Germany was stated to have made
advances proposing surrendering its
conquests in the cast and west on con
dition of retaining its Balkan way to
Bagdad and Mesopotamia, but the al

that plan than against any other pro

THE FRENCH FRONT
Washington, May 2. The French
commissioners today had assurance
that the American government is
willing to send troops to France one
of the urgent recommendations they
brought to tliis country when the
allies believe they can afford to spare
the necessary ships for transporting
an army and its equipment across
The administration has put aside
the objections of the army general
staff to sending any troops to 'the
battle front until a big force has been
raiser and trained for nearly a year
and lias decided that for the sake of
the moral effect on America's actual
participation in the trench battling,
a small contingent shall go forward
a s soon as possible.
This will be seen, it is believed, al
though the government is mindful
that nearly ."oo,u)0 tons of shipping
would be required for a regular army

Indications That the House and Sen
ate Will Compromise in
House Not Expected to Agree to the
Roosevelt Expedition Propo
sition. Washington, I). C, May 2. House
and senate conferees today began the
task of adjusting differences over the
annual army appropriation bill and
as soon as settlement is reached, they
will seek to reach an agreement on
the army bill, repassed by the
senate yesterday, over which there
are more serious differences. An
early agreement on both measures is
hoped for so as to send them on to
President Wilson for his approval
Prospects are that the house con
ferees will refuse to agree to the sen
ate amendment which would permit
Theodore Roosevelt to raise a volun
teer expedition for foreign service.
Most of the other major differences
are beliewed to be susceptible of ad
justment, including those on ages
subject to selective draft and the sen
ate army prohibition amendment.
The senate bill specified the ages sub
ject to draft at from 21 to 27 and
the house at from 21 to 40 and indi
cations are that a compromise will
be effected fixing the minimum age
at possibly 21 and the maximum at
The war emergency bill carrying
?2,S27,n-.-n,G5., was taken up in the
house today for final action and its
prompt passage with but few dissent
ing votes virtually was assured.
The bill appropriates $2,320,591,-
907 for the army, $503,339,073 for
the navy and the balance is to meet
extraordinary expenses of other de-
partments arising chiefly from the
Debate on administration espionage
bill continued in the senate today and
will be kept before it continuously
until disposed of. Senate leaders
hope to pass the measure by the end
of the week at the latest. A similar
pleasure is pending in the house. The
senate already has voted approval of
the so.called censorshin section of the
bill, although there is nothing to pre
vent its consideration again.
Strong opposition is looked for over
a provision wnich would authorize
the president to declare an embargo
on exports that might go through
neutral countries to Germany and
