Rome, Nov. 23.- Tho diplomatic
clamps are tightening on Greece.
The serious position of Greece, if. she
continues to defy the allies, has bee'H
strongly represented to the Greek min

socialists are determined to fight the
long war to the end rather than agree

peace every day," he said, ."but not
for the kind that our enemies desire.
Premier Asquith of England, said that
peace cannot be made until England
has reached her goal Germany's de
feat while Premier Briand of France,
declared it could not be effected until
Alsace-Lorraine had been restored to

Mrs. Barnes Claims Property.
Tho title of the action in the Marios
