"POLL TOGETHER." 0 HAIG TO THE WORKERS. ALLIES REPLY TO AMERICA. I Field-Marshal Sir Douglas Haig has I ,written to Mr. Ben Tillett: BRITISH GENERAL HEAD- I QUARTERS, FRANCE, Dec. 22. I Dear Mr. Tillett,—Thank you very much for your letter and good wishes. You can tell labour at home that the best of all Christmas presents that they can make to their comrades in the field is the assurance that so far as in them lies nothing during the coming year I shall hinder the regular, constant, and increasing output of munitions and material. The workers have done splendidly in 1 the past. We look for even greater I efforts in the future. If the men and women workers at home and the troops in the trenches p1111 together the triumph of our cause is certain. With every good wish Believe me, yours very truly. D. HAIG. OUR REPLY TO U.S.A. THE ONLY PRELIMINARIES TO NEGOTIATION. The reply of the Allies to President Wilson's Note will be published perhaps a couple of days after it is in the hands of the President, says Renter. It seems likely that in again going over the ground for the responsibility of the war the Allies on this occasion will also emphasise the only possible terms of peace. It will thus be in contrast to the Teply to the German Note, which was pur- posely negative in character, rehearsing the conditions of peace that would not be acceptable. In the answer to the American Note it may be expected that the Allies will go further ,than this and indicate to the United States Government in more precise I fashion the only preliminaries on which they would be prepared to negotiate. "THEY ARE TRYING TO HAVE US." M FRENCH MOTHER'S VIEWS I ON PEACE. FOR THE PACIFISTS TO PONDER OVER. PARIS, Tuesday. M. Gustave Herve in "La Victoire prints the following letter written him by the wife of a working man—perhaps a country labourer:— December 23, 1916. Sir, I've lost a brother of twenty-five and my husband was called- up at the beginning of the war, and he's at the front, where the fighting is; and since he's heel\ gone we're not often able to keep very ivarm, and we've not always got enough to -eat when we're hungry. But. sÜ, we don't w!mt peace, though it would mean that w6FAoiild have more money again wf3've got children, and though we're only working people we I don't want them to have to I Fight in ten or fifteen years; and that's what would be sure to happen. And there's my husband, and he's had enough of this war, hut he'll go on fighting as long as he's got to. so as to give those Germans a good thrashing and make them have the kind of peace that we won't have to worry about the children. And it isn't only my husband that feels like that, sir. he says all the others are just the same. Of course there's grumbling sometimes, and people aren't quite satisfied with things, but, sir, you mustn't think that we want peace because of that; indeed we don't. When we saw in the naoers that they I were talking about peace my next-door neighbour, who has three children, said t'o l' m e,, "These dirty Huns, I They are trying ,'°, have us." And arter unat we man t so much as mention it again, we thought it was so stupid. And then there come people who have got education who seem to be taking it seriously. Sir. they haven't got any children or else they don't love them, because they would sooner their I1 children had to fight than them. Sir, you needn't worry, the soldiers who've got children, and the women who are left behind and. who are work- ing to take the father's place, they'll hold out as long as is wanted, a year more or even two, so that the little children won't have to see this sort of thing later on. I am, dear sir, yours very respect- fllllv. M IMrs. H I -1- ————
