The state de partment has not yet received the re ported informal peace suggestions launched by Germany through the Spanish government. Preliminary examination of the terms outlined in cable reports indicate that Germany is offering nothing new or interesting, if the outline is correct. The allies, it has been repeatedly stat ed, must see the Hun ready to relin quish Belgium and Serbia beforo nego tiations ure possioie. These nations cannot bo used as fawns, allied diplomats have stated re cently. So far as the Rumanian and Hussian peace treaties are concerned. both the United States and Britain have emphatically declared thew treat ies would not be recognized by tho al lies.
