(Gilbert Hlrocb. a flolshrd itudcat of Oermin polltlcti. ocUI and rcononrte life, baa written mncU aTllllant correspuudeaco Irom Germany ' aluce tbe beKlunlnx of the present conflict.) Peace rumors which have coma out of Spain since the German submarine U-35 visited Cartagena on June 22 are confirmed by what 1 have repeatedly heard in Berlin. "Spain would be the Ideal place for the holding of the peace conference after the war," well Informed Germans have said to me more than once, 'were It not that there would be no direct connection with Berlin, except over enemy territory." The success of the new methods of submarine communication helps to reduce that difficulty to a minimum. And whatever were the contents of the dispatches so impressively sent from tbe German emperor to the King of Spain, they wero certainly of a nature to increase the probability of Spanish mediation. ALFONSO HOPED TO AID IN PEACE. The claim of the Madrid newspaper El Mundo to know the exact terms of the peace proposals contained in the kaiser's communication should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt. But the statement given out by King Alfotiso to the most important newspaper in HungaryAz Est, two days after the submarine's visit, points to a similar con clusion. He not merely insists that Spain has been strictly neutral through out the way, "In spite of the greatest difficulties," but openly stateshat the reason for this impartiality has been the hone of Dlaylnc an Important role in bringing about peace. The congress of Vienna, held at the end of the Napoleonic wars a century ago. did much to restore the prestige of the brilliant but Impoverished Austrian court. King Alfonso has apparently every reason to be'.leve that the equally important congress which will end the present war may do as much for the court at Madrid. SPAIN VERSUS THE UNITED STATES. According to the German point of view, there are only two possible mediators Spain and the United States. Sweden's sympathies have been too openly with Germany to permit her to play the role of peacemaker. vl'he other neutral na tlons of Europe are too weak according to the view of the realpolitiker to hold the scales In which the future of the world will have to be weighed. The Germans believe that a peace congress held at The Hague, at Copenhagen at Chrlstianla, or at Berne would be domi- (Continued on Page Three.)

INFORMATION WAS FOR USE OF BORDER COMMISSION Premature Publication May Hamper Adjustment Officials Expected to Agree With Chief Military Advisor, However. The Associated Press summarizes the war situation as" follows: The long expected general offensive on the Saloniki front has opened, and the grand assault against the forces of the central powers now is In progress in every theater of the world war. Sarrail is attacking the Bulgar-Ger- man forces along the entire Greek-Serbian frontier, a distance of more than 150 miles. Reports from both Berlin and Paris Indicate that the entente allies are following the same tactics in the Balkans that signalized the opening of the great offensive on the Somme. Small bodies of troops are attacking at numerous pofnta along the Bulgarian lines, apparently with the intention of feeling out -their . opponents position before the real battle opens. The French claim the capture of a number of villages in the initial phases of the offensive, while Berlin reports the capture of Fiorina, a Greek town 15 miles southeast tf Monastir, from the Serbians.

WASHINGTON, August 19. A re commendation from General Funston that the American troops be withdrawn from Mexico was contained in a recent report on the military situation made at the request of the war department and designed for use of the Joint com mission which will discuss border problems. State department officials do not attempt Jjo disguise their regret over premature publicationyof General Funston's conclusions, but they indicated Saturday that it would not cause any alterations- in plans. Officials realize, it is understood that the most pressing matter for discussion by the commission from the Mexican viewpoint will be the ques tion of withdrawal of General Pershing's expeditionary, force. In order to furnish the .American commissioners with full information. General Funston was asked to express his views on the military aspects of the expedition. There is every indication that the commissioners, and later the administration' were expected to abide by the recommendations of the chief adviser on border matters. Publication of the. fact that General Funston believes It wise to withdraw the troops maV hamper the American com missioners, some officials think. In obtaining whatever4 guarantees tbey may ask of the Mexican government as to security of the border from bandit raids. It Is believed the administration was fully prepared to arrange for the recall of General Pershing's forces, since both state and war department officials are understood to share the views expressed in General Funston's report There can be little doubt.' It now Is said, that the withdraw will be promptly agreed to when tha commission meets, tha conferees, then turning their attention to the drafting of a protocol to cover fu ture border operations, Investigation . of the causes of bandit raids and Such other matters as they may wish to take up.

It will not be upon me." A few minutes later he Issued a statement Baying the public has a right to expect acceptance of his plan. Refusing acceptance for the present, but not giving a final answer, Hale Hol-den, president of the Burllngtpn road and spokesman for the 33 railroad officials, ureed the president to uphold the principles of arbitration and declared his plan would "place ' in peril all that has been, accomplished in the peaceful adjustment of labor controversies by methods of arbitration." At the close of the conference President Wilson summoned to Washington additional railroad presidents from the West and the executives already here told him they would confer among themselves and return next week, probably Monday. Meanwhile representatives of both the ruads and the employes 'will remain here for informal conferences. The situation Saturday night was described by a railroad president as "not hopeless, but grave."" It will be at a standstill until Monday at least. As a result of the day's conferences. It was said on good authority that many of the railroad presidents looked upon the possibility of a strike as more remote than at any time since they came to Washington. PRESIDENT GAVE OUT .

The only loss of life so far reported was in the sinking in the Gulf of Mexico of the small steamer Pilot Boy, plying between Galveston and Corpus Christl. The vessel curried a crew of 13, only three of whom have as yet been reported saved. These three were washed ashore alive at Port. Aransas, Texas. The last telegraph wire Into Corpus Christl failed at 2:30 o'clock Friday afternoon and the last telephone line went out shortly before 7 o'clock Friday night. Last reports from Corpus Christl placed the velocity of the wind at TO miles an hour, and was stated the storm waa expected to Increase In Intensity until midnight, when the crest would be reached. Nothing later has been heard. The storm had abated somewhat at Brownsville at 11 o'clock Friday night, according to wireless reports to army headquarters at Fort Sam Houston, the only means of communicating with that city. The message stated, however, another storm was reported approaching from an easterly direction. That was the last report received from Brownsville Friday night. It probably will take the San Antonio and Aransas Pass, railroad a week or 10 days to restore service to Corpus Christi and it mav be 15 days before its trains nary of the meteorological situation run t0 Rockport.
