FRENCH PREMIER SATISFIED.
A PESSIMISTIC NEWSPAPEPR
(Received May 6, 2 p.m.) The French Cabinet reviewed the essential clauses of the Treaty. M. Cle'menceau subsequently informed a French interviewer that he believed it would be good peace. :. The "Matin," however, is pessimistic ,and says, "Peace is not here yet, J although Germans are at Versailles. ' The Big Three continue to deliberate without conclusion. France's indebtedness is growing formidably and the crop prospects are exceptionally bad, and cattle in poor condition. The "Matin's" views, however, are somewhat discounted by its strong opposition to Clemenceau. The Chinese issued a further statement expressing indignation at not receiving any official written communication respecting the Shantung.. settlement, which gives Japan even greater privileges than Germany possessed, inasmuch as Japan secures permanent control instead of for a fixed period of years.
