WILSON WINS ON FIUME IDEAJ Lloyd George and Millerand Unwilling • to Do Anything Without the Co-" ' Operation of the United States, London Says. London, Feb. 2S. — The allies have given 11 n the Idea • of trying to force the United States to agree to their program for the disposal j>f the Adriatic controversy. Premiers Lloyd George and Mille- rand, in their reply to President Wilson's latest communication on the question, agree that Mr. Wilson's "nrn- InRness. to accept any settlement "mutually agreeable to Italy and ,Tugo : Slavla regarding their common frontier in the Flume region, provided such an agreement is not made on the basis of compensation elsewhere at the expense of the nationals of a third power," meets with their approval. • In other words, they have backed down from their stand ns embodied In their ultimatum to Jugo-Slwria under date of January 20, which was sent to Bnlprade without the consent of the United States., They now agree that the program of President Wilson would be the ideal way of settling the question and, express their willingness to do their utmost to reach n settlement by this road. In order to facilitate this process they are ready to witliclraw their proposals of December 9 and Janunry 20, because they believe If the parties principally concerned believe the allied and associated powers are committed to supporting them in any particular solution it will be more cliffl- .cult to secure a voh*atary agreement. New Proposals Invited. The premiers, therefore, cordially invite the president to join them in a formal proposal to the Italians and Jugo-Slav governments to negotiate an agreement on the basis of withdrawal of all previous proposals. If, . however, this, attempt should prove unsuccessful, the premiers agree that the United States, Great Britain and France should once more consider the question In common, with the view of arriving nt concrete proposals. The premiers express appreciation of an agreement with' President Wilson's views with regard to the future of the Albanian people and say they are willing to urge upon the governments interested that they .should bring their desires into line with the American viewpoint. With regard to the treaty of London, the premiers state thnt its "secret character" was due to military exigencies preventing Its publication during the war. The premiers declare they cannot disguise the fact that should no voluntary settlement of the Adriatic problem be attained the treaty of London would become the only valid alternative, as far as they are concerned. Italy has co-operated loyally, they say, in trying to find a substitute for the pact, and the allies hope they will succeed in finding such a substitute. Text Is Denied Public. Washington, Feb. 28.— The reply of 'the British and JJfench premiers on the Adriatic question was received at the state department. It was sent to the White House immediately after being decoded. It was announced that the text of the premiers' note would not be made public by the American government without the consent of the premiers. This is being sought. The British government, is understood to plan publication of all of the exchanges, Including this latest note, within a few days, and officials thought it might be possible that the premiers would consent to simultaneous publication of the latest reply on both sides of the Atlantic. \remedy for 20 7 £cars form—safe, sure, no breaks up a cold in 24- relieves-grip in. 3 days, back if-it fails.
