me poace negotiations, which are still
pending in Paris, the presldont has ex

toward that end have been recolved
from the American commissioners.

first absolutely definite statement as to
tho conclusion of the labors of tho com
mission that had boon reooived, and,
quite naturally, it afforded the nrosi-
dont and his advisers considerable sat
isiaction. It is probablo that the president will
disouaa in his message to congresa,
which will be delivered one week from

administration in the negotiation of a
peace tieaty, although thore is a possi
bility that the treaty itsolf may not
nave been signed at the time.
