WILSON ANNOYED.

NEGOTIATIONS THREATENED

(Received April 11, 3 p.m.) LONDON, April S. The "Daily Express" states that President Wilson considers Sunday's compromise on. the Saar, Rhine,. Dantzig, and reparation questions . definitely offended against his fourteen points, to which he adheres with undiminished tenacity. M; Clemenceau has gone far to meet President .Wilson's views, but the President thinks not far enough. Mr Lloyd George steers a middle' course, though the Americans accuse him of siding too much with M. Clemenceau. It is unquestionable that the sudden summoning by President Wilson, of his steamer was a deliberate hint that the Conference must choose between Wilson's peace and no peace. It is reported that President Wilson is fiercely determined to have his own way. If the peace draft fails to coincide with the fourteen points, he will issue ayniahifesto and quit Europe. To-day's meeting of the "Big Four" was of unprecedented importance. The British correspondents' messages, almost for the firs* time, are being censored..

The " Daily Telegraph's" Paris cor- | respondent states that the new League of Nations scheme anticipates a more or less formal alliance of Britain, France, and America to enforce the observance of the peace treaty, enabling . the League to take its place when world-power is established. The scheme will do much to relieve the anxiety of France, which feared the League at its inception was not strong enough to impose -its terms on Germany.

Whatever the reason for summoning the steamer, it is ' undoubted that President Wilson is as much irritated and depressed at the slownessT of the negotiations as his most severe critics.
