No member of the government

WASHINGTON. Sept. 3. Th
United States will make no further
efforts to bring about peace in Eu

This was stated unauthorltatlvely
here today in official discussions of
the message from Pope Ilenedlct, de
livered to President Wilson yester
day by Cardinal Gibbons.
From the fact that the Vatican Is
in close touch with Austria, the con
struction placed by officials on the
pope's message Is that the Germanic
powers would be willing to discuss
peace at this time. It was stated by
those in closest toucn with the ad
