PARIS, April 23. Mr Murdoch writes regarding President Wilson's statement on the Adriatic question that President Wilson said on Monday that he. intended to make a statement if the Italians persisted in their claims to JFiume. Mi. Lloyd Georgo attempted to mediate then, and advised the Italians to abandon their claim in view of President Wilson's unbending position. He also urged President Wilson to give time for negotiations, buti President Wilson without further consultation distributed his statement, asserting that his position was being misunderstood throughout the world. The statement was therefore issued with the knowledge but without the consent of the Council of Four.

Mr Lloyd George has authorised the following* statement: —The Treaty of London allotted Fiume to Croatia, but the Italians occupied it. Britain and France informed Italy that they would not support her claims to Fiume and also that they thought it against her best interests to insist upon having the Adriatic islands and Dalmatia, though they will abide by the letter of the treaty if Italy insists. Mr Murdoch adds that Britain and Franco have again begged the Italians to reconsider thoir attitude. Italy's financial, food and coal requests being principally addressed to America, give President Wilson additional power over the situation. PARIS, April 25. President Wilson has authorised a statement that he is prepared to accept the consequences of his manifesto, and adds that the Italian delegates for some time have been threatening a rupture.
