WASHINGTON, Sept. 18. Ger
many has suggested Informally that
the United States should undertake
to elicit from Great Britain, France
and Russia a statement of the terms
under which the allies would make
A suggestion was made of the im
perial chancellors "Vcm Bet&mann
Ilollweg, to Ambassador Gerard at
Berlin as a result of an inquiry sent
by the American government to
learn whether Emperor William was
desirous . of discussing peace as
Count Bernstorff, the German am
bassador, and Oscar Straus recently
)' ad reported.
No reply was made by Emperor
"William himself nor did the Imperial
chancellor indicate whether or not
lie spoke on behalf of his monarch.
Ambassador Gerard cabled President
Wilson the chancellor's remarks
from recollection, which were sub
stantially as follows:
"Germany was appreciative of the
American government's interest and
offer of services in trying to make
peace. Germany did not want war,
but had It forced on it - Even If It
defeats France, it must likewise van
quish both Great Britain and Rus
sia as all three pave made an agree
ment not to 'make peace except by
common consent". Similarly, Eng
land has announced through Premier
Asqulth and its diplomatists and
newspapers that it intended to fight
to the limit of Jts endurance.
WaiAt Laatlag Peace,
"In view of that determination on
the part of Great Britain, the United
States ought to get proposals of
peace from the allies. Germany
could accept only a lasting peace,
one that would make its people se
cure against future attacks. To ac
cept mediation now would be Inter
preted by the allies as a sign of
weakness on 'the part of Germany
and would be misunderstood by the
German people who, having made
reat sacrifices, had the right to de
mand guarantees of security."
Way Poaalblr Opened.
The foregoing Is all that Ambassador
i.erard communicated as to his oonver
sation. II added only the brief torn
ment that ha. himself, thought the way
might, poastbly be opened to mediation.
President Wilson did not regard the
message, however, as bringing anything
tangible. He referred to the chancellor's
conversation aa noncommittal and loci
dcnta.l to the acknowledgment of the
American governments Inquiry.
Tha president indicated that ha rather
expected a reply to the inquiry to be
sent eventually from the emperor him
self, though he realises that the Imperial
chancellor may have consulted his mon
arch by telegraph before talking In
formally with the American ambassador.
