theso can bo patted within thn next few

that It may also bo the scone of the

that reports of Bitch activity on the
part ot the United Stntes officials
after tho President had expressly de

Kuropo nnd might perhaps lend to
somo backward steps that would lie
a matter ot regret to the Government,
which earnestly desires to havo tho
parties reach an honorable settle

It is explained at tho Stato Depart

United States Government usl now
Is that of "good friend" to nil parties'
that It Is not undertaking to draw up
protocols or Impose limitations upon
the parties, but It Is confining Its

not bo necessary for our Government
