KAISER S TERMS OF PEACE
Washington, Doc. 12.—The peace proposals of Germany
and her allies to the entente powers are understood to
propose the complete restoration of the occupied portions
of Belgium and France in return for Germany’s captured
colonies, and to dispose of the Balkan situation, because of
its extremely complicated nature, in the peace conference.
Advices from Berlin to the German embassy indicate
that Germany's peace terms, in general measure, propose
the restoration of the status quo before the war with the
exception of the establishment of independent kingdoms
of Poland and Lithuania.

making similar proposals. These proposals have also been trans

The following announcement was given out today by the semi
official Overseas News Agency:
“The chancellor this morning received, one after another, the
representatives of the United States of America and Spain and
Switzerland, that is, of the states protecting German interests in
hostile foreign countries. The chancellor transmitted to them a
note and asked them to bring it to the knowledge of the hostile
governments. The note will be read today in the reichstag by the
“In the note the four allied (central) powers propose to enter
forthwith on peace negotiations. The propositions they bring for
such negotiations are, according to their firm belief, appropriate
for the establishment of a lasting peace.
“The governments at Vienna, Constantinople and Sofia trans
mitted identical notes and also communicated with the Holy see
and all neutral powers.”
