Viscount Bryce Says Peace
Can Only Come With Ger
By Wilbur S. Forrest
(United Press staff correspondent)
London, July 5. Viscount Bryce,
former British ambassador to the Unit
ed states, threw back upon Germany
the responsibility for prolonging the
world war in a luncheon address be
fore the Pilgrim Society in the Hotel
Savoy this afternoon. The affair was
in honor of James M. Beck of Jiew
York, former assistant attorney gen
eral of the United Stutes, who is leav
ing for America.
Bryce made a direct reply to a let
ter recently sent to him from America
urging that he use his efforts in be
half of peace. He answered that Ger
many is not willing to agree to any
reasonable settlement at the present
"Mr. Beck will wish to tell his
countrymen at home what we think of
war and peace," began Bryce "Re
cently an address reached me, signed
by Americans, saying1 the wur must
end in a draw and asking 'why not
make peace at once and save further
bloodshed?' It is significant that most
of the signers are of German origin.
We all feel the horror and suffering
of war as much as any pacifist m

will end in a draw. The allies are go

stronger ou bind ami also unshakable
control of the sea.

"Secondly, Germany is not yot pre
pared for any terms r.e could accept.
The Oerman government knows that
Germany will be beaten, but the Ger
man people don't know it yet. The
government hai fed. room ou false
hoods and now fears to accept terms
which would recognize its own failure.
"Thirdly, peace now on Germany's
terras would not be permanent, but a
"Lastly, we are fighting for great
principles, vital to the future of man
kind, which Germany has outraged and
which must be vindicated. We do not
hate the German people. We do not
desire to destroy their nationnl unity
nor inflict permanent injury' upon them
but we do desire-to -rfxercise the evil
spirit nnd discredit the military caste
delighting in war nnd threatening all
countries, America included. Nothing
but defeat enn destroy its spirit and

"What Great Britain wants is secur
ity for herself and her, dominions, the.
deliverance of Belgium and north
France, such changes in the east ns to
make it possible for the Turks ever
again to mussncre christian subjects or
become vassals or tools of Germany in
her projected eastward advance.
"The allies arc bound and resolved
to prosecute this war "until victory is
won for principles nnd pence estab
lished on the sure foundations of jus

Answer to Railroad
The state public service commission
is preparing its answer to the brief
filed by the Southern Pacific and oth
er railroad companies in reference to
the action of tho commission iu trying
to secure the abolishment of the dif-
fcrcntinl between po.uts In California

tention between the commissions nnd
the railroads for a long time, nnd is
