GIJH.1LAX PEACE AGENT IS WARNED. LONDON, -May 4.--An emissary of (Jermany's new peace offensive already is in England. According to the Central News lie is a Dutch financier. Another agent, the agency says, is believed to be on the way. In discussing Germany's peace offensive, signs of which have begun to appear, the newspapers reflect, the determination, of the British nation and its allies to see the war through. They say it is impossible that Germany should succeed in d u p i n g the Allies into a peace which does not fulfill the principles for which they are fighting. The general expectation thai Germany, failing to obtain a crushing victory in France and Flanders, would inaugurate a peace campaign in the Allied countries seems likely to be fulfilled. The Daily Mail says: "The irruption of amiable neutrals into England with no visible business has already begun, including the arrival of a pro-German friend of the German foreign secretary who is not charged with any official mission as far as his London legation is aware. These neutral emissaries will save themselves much trouble .and some personal danger if they would recognize clearly that Great Britain is not be to duped like the Bolsheviki."
