Surrender Only Course For Germany Unless Ger
man People Are In Control Says President
Answer To Germany Minces No Words And
Cannot Be Misunderstood
WASHINGTON, October 23 Secretary Lansing matle j ml .lie to
night the following reply of Ihe President to Germany:
"Having received solemn and explicit assurance of the German gov
ernment that it unreservedly accepts the terms of eaee laid down in
his address to the Congress of January 8th, and the principles of settle
merit enunciated in his" subsequent addresses; and that it desires to dis
cuss details of their application; and that this wish and punose emanate
not from those who have hitherto dictated German policy and conduct
ed the present war on Germany's behalf but from a minister who speaks
for a majority of the Reichstag, and for the overwh-lming majority of
the German people: and having received also the etplicite promise of
the present German government that humane rules of civilized warfare
will be observed both on land and sea bv German armed forces, the
President of the Unite! States feels that he car. not decline to take up
villi governments with which the United States is associated the iies
t ii in of an armistice.
"lie deems it his duty, however, to say again that the only armistice
he would feel justified in submitting for consideration would be one
which should leave the United States and the tamers associated with
htr in a position to enforce any arrangement that may be entered into
and to make a renewal of hostilities on the part ot.ticrmany imHssille.
"The President has therefore transmitted his correspondence with
the present German authorities to the governments with which the Unit
ed states is associated as belligerents with the suggestion that if these
governments are disposed to effect peac upon the teims anil principles
indicated, their military advisors and the military advisors of the Unit
ed States be asked to submit to the governments associated against Ger
many the necessary terms of such an armistice as will fully protect the
interests of the peoples involved and insure to the associated govern
ments the unrestricted power to safeguard and enlorce the details ot
peace to which the German government has agreed, provided they deem
such and armistice ossible from a military point of view.
"Should such terms of armistice be accepted their acceptance by
Germany will afford the best concrete example of her unequivocal ac
ceptance of the terms and principles of peace upon which the whole
"The President would deem himself lacking in candor did he not
point out iossil.lc terms and reasons, while extraordinary safeguards
must be demanded. Significant and important as the constitutional
hanges seem to be which are spoken of l.y the German foreign secre
tary in his note of October 20th, it does not appear that the principles
f't a government responsible to the German people has been fully work
ed out or that any guarantees either exist or are in contemplation that
the alteration of principles and practices now partially agreed upon,
will be permanent.
"Moreover it does not appear that the heart of the present difficult
ly has been reached. It may be that future wars have been brought
under control of the German people; but present war has not been ami
il is with the present war that we are dealing. It is evident that the
German people have not the means of commanding an acquiescence of
tlx military authorities of the empire in popular will; that the power
of the king of Prussia to control the empire's politics is unimpaired;
that the determining initiative still remains with those who have hitherto
b-en masters of Gernnny.
"Feeling that the whole peace of the world depends now on plain
; peaking and straight forward action, the President deems it his duty
to say without any attempt to soften that which may seem harsh words,
that the nations of the world can not trust the word of those who have
h.thcrto been masters of the German policy, and to point out once
more that in concluding a peace and in attempting to correct the injuries
a'td injustices this war, the government of the United States cannot
thai villi any but reliable representatives of the German people who
l ave been assured of a genuine constitution, standing as the real rulers
"If it must deal with the military masters and the monarchial
autocracy of Germany now, or if it is likely to have to deal with them
later in regard to the international obligations of the German Empire,
it must demand not jieace negotiations but surrender. Nothing can be
i'.ined by leaving this essentil things unsaid."
