(Received April 16, 2.15 p.m.) PARIS, April 14. The Treaty now drafting will only relate to countries'wherewith the Allies and America were at war, Germany and Austro-Hungary. A separate treaty will be made with Bulgaria, but none with Turkey, which, in fact, will' no longer exist as a European nation. .Most of her territory will be divided among mandatories under the League oi; Nations, Turkey henceforth consisting of very small portions of Asia Minor with Broussa the probable capital. The scope of the treaty with Germany, besides the articles specifying military, naval, and air conditions will provide for the payment to the Allies of their whole war losses. This will involve an immediate payment of a billion sterling, in the shape of foreign credit, ships, and gold, and the spreading of future undetermined sums over a period of thirty years. Bulgaria will be given access to the sea probably through Kavalla. At the .same time, a series of special Commissions will work on other outstanding matters, including the actual delimitation of the new European frontiers, the setting up of mandatories, the viewing of Germany's financial, commercial and 'industrial situation for determination of subsequent reparation. These Commissions will report from time to time to the heads of the Allied Governments, which will meet in London, Paris or elsewhere, as desirable. Meanwhile the Supreme Economic Council regulates the international economic relationship for land, sea and air.

It is possible that the treaty will be handed to the Germans at Treves during Easter week. Th»y will be given a time limit to appeal, and will come to Versailles for the signing later, which will be made an occasion for considerable ceremonial. German delegates at present in Vienna are discussing the incorporation of Austria. The latter is anxious to ioin Germany, but the Germans are averse to agreeing to unity with Austria until after the peace treaty is •signed.
