20-Pres-ideiit Wilson speaking on world peace before a crowd of 100000 persons at the anniversary celebration of the signing of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence here today' Intimated plainly that not much progress was being made by the warring nations of Europe and that the objects being sought could be achieved better through peaceful means "It is an interesting circumstance that the processes of the war stand still” he said He added that “these hot things that are in contact with each other do not make much progress against each other” and that “when you cannot overcome you must take counsel” The president spoke guardedly when mentioning peace in Europe — but most of his hearers saw a plain suggestion in his words His utterances on peace were given significance by his hearers in view of the recent discussion of the possibility of ending the European war He said that "here in America we have tried to set the example of bringing all the world together upon terms of liberty co-operation and peace and in that great experience that we have been going through America has been a sort of prophetic sample of mankind” Would Sound Call of Humanity to Nations "I would like” declared the president “to think that the spirit of this occasion could be expressed if we imagined ourselves lifting some sacred emblem of counsel and of peace of accommodation and righteous judgment before the nations of the worictoand remind them of that passage irtScripture: ‘After the wind after the earthquake after the fire the still small voice of humanity’ ’’ The president sketched 'briefly his idea of what will follow the European war which it is understood he will elaborate more at length in an address he will deliver next week in Washington before the League to Enforce Peace of which former President Taft is president He said "what you see taking place on the other side of the water is the tremendous — I had about said final — process by which a contest of elements may in God’s process be turned into a co-ordination and -©-operation of elements” The president’s address was enthusiastically applauded by a crowd gathered from several states Before speaking he reviewed a long military agricultural and preparedness parade and afterward was the guest of honor at a lunch and went by automobile to Davidson college twenty miles away where he once was a student He left tonight for Washington accompanied by Mrs Wilson Secretary Daniels Secretary Tumulty Dr Cary D Grayson his naval aide Senator Overman and Representative Webb The reception committee included Governors

Berlin to London) May 20 — The army of the Austrian crown prince Archduke Charles Francis who was only recently intrusted with his first high command continues to force the Italians back toward the border in the southern extremity of Tyrol and has strengthened and extended its hold on the sections of Italian territory on Wednesday This newest offensive by the Austrians is declared to be like all the other offensive movements in this war a further exhibition of the efficiency of properly handled artillery The Austro-Hungarians began their operations after assembling adequate artillery which included numerous new guns of high efficiency The order for the commencement of a bom bardment of full intensity was given last Saturday with the result that the cannonading reached a degree of fierceness never heretofore expert enced on this front The Austro-Hungarian guns succeeded In smothering the Italian guns in the sectors where an offensive was planned and thus the infantry was able to begin work oh Monday in the mountains between the Brenta and Etsch (Adige) rivers Since then bitter mountain fighting has been continuous Picked troops under the crown prince succeeded on Wednes day in throwing their opponents back across the border directly to the east of Roverto and occupying the outermost of Italy's permanent frontier support points This position is es peclally important since it commands Arsieoo which is a communication and assembly point for the Italians Repeated attacks by the Italians from the Sugana valley against the Austro Hungarian left flank were beaten back and the Austrians captured Ca pomolon and Tabaro both part of Italy's defensive outpost frontier line and both highly important positions since they are situated on elevation of respectively 1865 and
