Balfour, the British foreign secretary, giving his personal viewpoints on the Austrian pence note to visiting Journalists said; "it is Incredible that anything can come of this proposal." Coming after the recent speech of Frledrlch Von Payer, the German ^Imperial vice chancellor, Mr. Balfour said, "this cynical proposal of the AuMrlnn government is not a genuine attempt to obtain peace. It is an attempt to divide the Allies.", The foreign secretary said U,b was utterly unable to see that a conference proposed by Austria could have ,the deKlrfcthcnd. , "I cannot honestly discuss ihe proposal now made to us, as I have been unable to study them," Mr. Balfour said, "Nor see the slightest hope that, the goal we desire—the goal of a peace which shall be more,than a truce-can reaHy. be attained." x Can't Break Coalition. Mr. Balfour said no one should take upon himself the task of rejecting with a light heart any proposal which would'shorten Ihe length of the.war. He also declared that no coalition ever had been so strong as the Alliiyi coalition liiid Uiat the enemy wouut not succeed in breaking 11. Conversations such as were proposed by Austria-Hungary, Mr. Balfour sffld, undoubtedly would have great value under certain conditions, lie said they would serve to smooth out obscurities, such as questions of pride, but he declared that tho nnas- Hons now between the belligerents were definitely defined.
