December 9th 1916.
London: David Lloyd George
at Buckingham Palace tonight
formal.y kissed the King's
hands on his acceptance of the
office* of Prime Minister and
First Lord of the Treasury. This
indicates that in an unexpected-
ly short time the new Premier
sees his way to the forming of
an administration and he prob
ably was able to submit to the
King a preliminary draft list of
the principal proposed ministers.
' Doubtless much remains to be
done in the way of allottatioo
of the new cisitions and so far
as the public is concerned the
peisonai-Jif the ministry is a
matter lifjire speculation, but

new national ministry represent
! exception of the nationalists
1 and if common report is to be
trusted comprising a strong busi
ness element.
Little reliance can be placed
upon the numerous names can
vassed during the day, but it
seems certain that his field of
choice is much wider than was
hastily assumed last night,
when the admittedly difficult
task which confronted him was
uppermost in the public mind
and provoked misgivings regard
ing his chances of securing any
continued support in Parlia
! ment. These appeared mainlv
lowing to the fact that he has
j been able to gain the support of
the Labour party by an offer of
] two ministerial posts and three
I under secretaryships.
1 he Roumanian army in last
reports wasstill falling back all
along the line east of Bucharest,
from the Transylvanian Alps to
j the Danube. Just where it still
Stop and f.ice about and with its
Russian Allies make a stand
against the Teutonic allies has
not yet become apparent.
An official communication
from Berlin says Bucharest was
captured without any fighting
except by the Roumanian in-
fantry north and west of the Cap
ital. This resistance was quick
ly overcome and it is stated
that the invaders entered the
town from all sides being re-
ceived with the greatest enthu

Washington:Germany's ac
ceptance of responsibility for
the linking without warning of
the British Liner Arabia, with
the explanation that her iubl
marine commander took the
vessel for an auxiliary warship
has brought the issue over sub
marine warfare to a more se
rious and clear cut basis than
anything that has happened
since the threat of the United
States last April to break dip
lomatic relations after the tor
Sussex. Such information as the
American government now has
tends to show the Arabia to
have been a passenger ship pass
ing through the Mediteranuean
on a regular voyage. Among the
many passengers was an Ameri
can citizen, who was rescued.
The German note mads pub

nished showing that the vessel
was an ordinary passenger this
would be a case of regretable
mistake from which the Ger-
man government would prompt
lydraw the appropriate conse-
quences. It is atflimad here that
the consequences would be an
expression of regret and offer of

case comes as a climax There
probably will be 10 immediate
action as the State Department
must clear up beyond question
the exact status of the liner
when attacked, then it will be
for the President to decide the
course to be followed.
In official quarters the German
explanation is regarded as weak
