PEACE CONFERENCE.

ITALIAN CRISIS

ORLANDO TALKS iW WAR

PARIS, April 27. The Peace Conference has tense moments ahead this week, with the Italian and Japanese difficulties unsettled imd the German delegates on the threshold. The only Italian delegate remaining behind is Signor Orespi, Food Minister. Signor Orlando's per-fervid reception in Home is more likely to 'strengthen his attitude than to incline him to compromise. His speech pointing out that after four years of war the Italians might have to face others, and that Italy 'to-day is readier than in 1915, is not reassuring. The Italians deny that President Wilson could have been actuated by a report that Italy contemplated annexation. They admit that for .m^ny mouths various patriotic associations have placarded llome demanding annexation. . President Wilson could have seen those on his visit there.

M. Cleinenceau telegraphed to Signor Luzzatti, "The hour of the signature of -pence ia nob the hour in which !to disown our reciprocal engagements/ France's policy is not that of the 'scrap of paper.'"

The Italian Government lias placarded Rome, proclaiming Italy's annexation of'Fiume.
