WASHINGTON, Juno ll.-Sercne In his
i elf-assumed position of lender of the
American peace party, former Secretary
of Stato Bryan wns working today on a
plan to secure concerted nctlon on a
method to end all wars. Ills first step
was taken Inst night when ho Issued a
statement explaining his belief that the
United Slates should lend tho way to
substitution of persuasion for force In
settling International disputes. His sec
ond will be taken, probably late today,
when ho will lssuo an nppcnl to German
Americans to work along lines which In
his opinion will lend to a shortening of
tho European struggle.
Bryan Is understood to have taken the
position that even thougn tho German
reply to the latest United States note Is
a rejection of Its demands, tho matter
will not be closed He will try to have
his arbitration plan substituted for any
drastic action President Wilson may con
sider necessary and will work from now
until the German reply Is received to con
