Austria Favors Pope's Plan,
While German Press Scouts
the Idea of Eevacuating
Territory Now Occupied.
Copenhagen, Aug. 18. Tlie German
foreign office is rot jet ready to an
nounce the government's standpoint
on the pope's peace proposals and an
answer probably will be delayed con
siderably, while the four central pow
ers are endeavoring in reconcile some
what divergent views and interests re
garding peace. A cordial article in
the Cologne Gazette perhaps pres
ages the German point of view by de
claring it is the duty of all govern
ments to support any effort, at hon
, It is evident that Austria-Hungary
wilr" throw its fulf weight in favor of
an affirmative answer to the pope's
welcome proposal just as Bulgaria
will flatly and vehemently oppose any
acceptance of the return of occupied
While the newspaper Germania. as
befit its representative Catholic char
acter, is decidedly optimistic regard
ing the prospects for tangible results,
most papers are rather skeptical as to
the chances that it will lead to any
thing in the immediate future. At
least the pan-German papers insist
that peace on the proposed basis is
The Belgian Tages Zeitung in its
comment says the evacuation of Bel
gium and all occupied regions of
France is impossible just now because
independent Belgium henceforth
would be an irreconciliable enemy of
Germany and it must be subordinated
to the security of Germany's frontiers.
Even the plan of the former German
chancellor, Dr. von Bethmann-Holl-weg,
for a Polish grotectotate is re
jected because the Poles have shown
themselves ungrateful for favors
Plan Up to Reichstag.
London, Aug. 18. Pope Benedict's
peace proposals and the general po
litical aituation will be discussed by
the Alain committee of the German
Reichstag when it is convened August
21, according to a Berlin dispatch
transmitted through Copenhagen to
the Exchange Telegraph company.
U. S. Answer Independent. -
Washington, Aug. 18. The reply
of the United States to the popes
peace note will be sent independently
and not in connection with any answer
from the other belligerents. At least
this" is the plan at this time as indi
cated by Secretary Lansing. . A reply
may not be expected until the pro
posal has been carefully considered.
It is generally taken to be the fact
that the president will consider the
opinions of the other allies in making
reply and that the diplomatic repre
sentatives in Washington are ex
changing the views of their govern
ments with the States department.

a while in Room 541 Brahdeis building
and was then moved to the Crounse
block, where a sort of workshop for
the widows was set up. Mrs. Turpin
stated she had induced merchants to
allow widows a rebate on purchases,
found employment for some of them
and also had given all-round welfare
service. She said she received many
inquiries about her society from other
cities with requests that she organize
the widows in those localities. A na

of Mrs. Turpin, hence the name, "So

German Diplomat Comes to
Blows With Photographers
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Mexico City, Aug. 1. A clasli be
tween Heinrich von Eckhardt, the
German minister to Mexico, and
Mexican newspaper photographers, in
which it is declared that the German
diplomat came to blows with the
newspaper men,, enlivened the recent
session of the Mexican National Com
mercial conzress held here. Herr von
Eckhardt is the man who was directed
by Dr. Alfred Ziniinenriann, then Ger
man foreign minister, to make ar
rangements to bring Mexico with
Japan into war with the United
States. He, with other members of
the diplomatic corps and President
Carranza. attended the opening ses

Newspaper photographers sent to
snap the president set up I heir
cameras in the aisle close to the Ger
man minister, who was seated at the
end of the. row of seats to keep him
as far distant as possible from the
representatives of the entente allies,
who occupied the same row. Von Eck
hardt protested, in what the photog
raphers described as a rough and
caustic manner, that he did not intend
to be annoyed by photographers, but
the camera men paid little attention
and photographed President Carranza
and the diplomatic corps from the
most available spot, which was direct
ly behind Von Eckhardt.
When the flashlight charge ex
ploded, say the photographers, Von
Eckhardt remonstrated not only with
words but with blows.
El Excelsior, in commenting on the
incident the next niorning, declared
that a diplomat of Von Eckhardt's ex
perience should have learned before
