THE ALLIES BURST THE PEACE. ^ . BUBBLE. ? -The Entente's reply to the German - and' [American peace proposals bursts the bubble -which has been floating 'during the, last fortnight in the airy ? imaginings of Teutonic and neutral .self-styled humanitarians. The Allies effectually dispose of the hypocritical ' ' contention th.at no good purpose can be served by- a c9nti.nna.nee 'of ' the 'bloody struggle.) They point out, in cisively that this sudden consideration for the interests of ^suffering humanity has been impressed .npon Germany only qfter -she -has. seen the impossibility of realising her ambitions 'by force and at the moment -when- ' she is' confronted ?with the 'fnll possibilities of -her crimes against -civilisation.
