po, Syria, where French troops have
been having a severe struggle with

were compelled to leave their wounded,-which
will be cared for by the
American Red Cross.
The decision not to cust Turkey

the allied supreme council only after
long consideration of the dificulties
in the Turkish situation, Premier

ievelopment millions of acres of land
In the west. The totatl area of oil

030,000 acres, with 39,000,000 acre's
still to be classified. Phosphate lands
.are estimated at 2,700,000 acres.
President Wilson's reply to the en
tente prebiers on the Adriatic ques
tion has been dispatched by the state
department. Officials still declined to
discuss the contents of the communi
cation, but it is known that in his
exchanges with the premiers the pres
ident has made an unequivocal state
ment of the American government's po
sition, especialy with regard to the
forming of agreements without the
participation of this country.

The invitation of the British and
French premiers to President Wilson
to jcin them in a formal proposal to
the Italian and Jugo-Slav governments
to negotiate a new Adriatic settlement

prise in official Washington. "
It is agreed by all in the know that
the nation will nothave to wait long
for a show-down, between President
Wilson and Democratic members of
