CHICAGO, Nov. 4. The Daily News

"The inside story of the situation
which led up to the famous 'peace' in
terview given out a month ago by
Charles H. Saotn. president of the
Guaranty Trust Company of New York,
the largest Institution of its kind in
the country, came out today for the
first time, in connection with Sabin's
visit to Chicago.
" 'Mr. Sabin baa received information
from an unimpeacnable source that a
message was on the way to President
Wilson from the German government
asking him to use his good ofttces to
bring about an early peace." said the
Daily News' informant. Certain neu
tral diplomats had actually prepared
to start for America, as the bearers of
the German government's proposals.
"Mr. Sabin never intimated in any
way that Ambassador Gerard was the
bearer of the Kaiser's message. The
coincidence of Mr. Gerard's being on
his way to the United States at the
time led to the deduction printed in
one of the newspapers that Mr. Gerard
was bringing the message to which
Mr. Sabin referred.

"When Mr. Sabin received this in

assistants considered very seriously the
question as to whether it should be
made public The news T.as known to
be of tremendous importance in its
bearing on American trade and on the
New York stock market.
"However, at about the same time
that Mr. Sabin received this news from
Germany, the alert Intelligence depart

learned the same facts. Great Britain
lost no time in nipping the German
peace movement in the bud.
"It will be remembered that Lloyd
George immediately came out with an
emphatic statement in an interview
given to American newspapers saying
that Great Britain would resent any
attempt on the part of any neutral gov

"The British Secretary of State de
clared that Great Britain had only be

made a statement in the House of
Commons that 'this war cannot be al

"These emphatic statements caused
the German government to abandon its
efforts at arriving at a peace through
the good offices of the United States.
The Lloyd George and Asquith state
ments were so evidently intended to
head off the movement which was be
ing initiated that it teemed useless to
go forward with it. The result was
that Mr. Sabin was placed in the un
fortunate position of having given out
a warning on a most important sub
