AMSTERDAM, July 16.--Baron von Burian, the Austro-Hungarlan foreign minister, in a note addressed to the Austro-Hungariaa premier, is quoted .in a dispatch from Vienna as saying: "There is hardly any difference between tlie general principles enunciated by tie statesmen ot both belligerents. President's Wilson's four new points of July 1 cannot, apart from certain exaggerations, arouse our opposition." Continuing, the Austro-Hungarlan. foreign minister said: "The enemy's obstinacy regarding historical demands concerning Alsace-Lorraine, Trieste, Trentino and the German colonies, appears to be insurmountable." In his reference to President Wilson's four new points in his July speech, Baron Burian said he was able to approve of them heartily, and that to a great extent "nobody would refuse homage to this genius and nobody would refuse his cooperation." "W-e erer- are ready to enter into peace negotiations'with all our opponents," he continued. Continuing, the ' foreign minister our enemies continuously de- said,:. "If maud atonement for wrongs done and restitution then this Is a claim which we could urge with more justification against them because we have been attacked and the wrong done to us i must be redressed." "We are prepared to discuss everything," said Baron Burian.
