LONDON, April 31

Dr. Dillon,' the' (Paris correspondent I of the "Daily Telegraph," states that ■ M. Clemenceau early desired the an- j nexation of the Saar Valley, which the Anglo-Americans deprecated, consider- ! ing that it contained the germ's of future mischief. An animated debate resulted in two proposals, the first being a British undertaking to hasten to France's assistance at the first alarm, and the second the establishing of a permanent inter-Allied Vigilance Board in Paris, which would watch the movements of the Germans. The French delegates questioned the value of the | British undertaking if conscription were abolished. They continue to claim the military occupation of the Saar Valley until Germany's debt is discharged. Meanwhile Bolshevism threatens to spread to Bohemia, where the soil is favourable, and to German-Austria, where it is unfavourable. The Poles are less liable to Bolshevism, but are threatened by the Ukrainians and Magyars. The Germans are forming an aati-Polish Union, and war and preparations for wars are the continuous accompaniment of the Peace Concert. The Czecho-Slovaks have issued a mobilisation order, Roumania is steadily mobilising, General Haller's Polish army is about to proceed to Kofiigsberg, and the Hungarians are preparing to attack Roumania. The Allies will probably put up a fight at Odessa, where the stock of food will be exhausted at the end of April.
