This announcement,- communicated ,hy the French t general to. his gov
emmcnt,, was confirmed by ,e3patches Ironl 3ofta, tent outiby Way of Jas
sy, Rumania, and by other despatcheairom Berlin. The latter denounced
the peace overtures of Maniloff as having been' made without the ,V l i i'WiS
sanction of Car Ferdinand and without the knowledge or approval ,fyITER$ yOf..,
of the other Teuton governments. ' wAii AWri MAW
The response of the Entente commander was promptly given.;
It was that the peace representative -wld be accepted and stend)
to- but that there would be no suspension of the military activities
?nd no halting of the victorious Rritish and Grecian invasion of
ntilorarta I 1 . ' C I
It is taken for granted in the
ton that, whether Ferdinand approves of the peace overtures of his
premier, or mouses iu - - - Mppn JljH X. Hara, prenilent of the
Bulgaria is now out of the war and of no further service to Ger- thp M.rKrat pii.iri party in

Bulgaria's secession from the Central. Towers, it -is agreed, is
almost as serious or Germany as was the collapse of Russia to the
Entente. If Bulgaria quits, as seems certain now, it will mean that
Turkey will-be shut off entirely from Germany and Austria and
will probably be compelled also to sue for Reace at once. j
This would lay the entire southeastern border ot Austria o;en t

forces to guard these tones.. Austria could only place an army in
the eastern field by greatly reducing her forces along the Italian line
and any such reduction would invite an immediate Italian offensive
into the Trentino and the Trieste proves. '
NO HUN HAND PERMITTED I
One thing is agreed orr in diplomatic quarters in Washington,
and that is that Bulgaria will be permitted to enter into no peace
in which Germany has the least part in making the terms, (iennan
influence must be done away with in Bulgaria by the Bulgars them
selves before the Entente will take up any question of peace, and
in the meanwhile there will be no interruption of the Allied march
Czar Ferdinand and his government will not be allowed to re
tain the slightest portion of the territory they have been given by
Germany of Rumania, of Serbia or of Greece and the fruits of their
inglorious alliance with the Teutons and the Turks must be wholly
surrendered. All German officers must be expelled from the ranks
of the Bulgarian army, which must be disarmed, and all German
advisers must be expelled at once from Rumanian soil.
Bulgaria must also surrender to the Allies the strategic points
throughout their country as a pledge that Bulgaria will not again
attempt to play false to the Entente. I

1 ne United States ts theoretically at peace with l.uigaria, mit
Wochinutrm a much interested
any of the Entente capitals, Paris official announcemcjits last night
stating that the United States will be consulted before whatever
proposals the Bulgarians have to make, will be considered.
SURENDER WAS INEVITABLE
The quitting of Bulgaria and her request for peace terms tome
as no surprise, the collapse of her armies and the certainty that her
country will be overrun having made it'inevitable that the peace
party at Son would win over the German influence under which
Ferdinand has been acting
, . ,
There is little doubt that the
the Entente provided the Bulgarian representatives make it plain
that Bulgaria is ready to accept the terms of the Allies.
-TEUTONS MOST INDIGNANT
Whether Berlin and Vienna were as prepared to learn of I5ul
ruria's willingness to admit defeat as were the Allies cannot be told
from the despatches originating in the Teuton capitals. The Wolff
Bureau, the official press agency for the German government, states
in a despatch received by way of Gontva that Premier Malmuff's
offer has been made against the wishes tyf hts Czar and entirely with
out the approval of the Teuton governments.
This fails to agree with the telegraphed announcement of the
Bulgarian offer sent to Parts by the French commander in Mace
donia, who notified' his government that a high Bulgar official, on
behalf of General Torodow, the Tiulgar commander, has asked for
a forty-eight hour armistice to permit the arrival at French head
quarters of two authorized Bulgar delegates, the Bulgarian minister
of finance nd the commander of the second Bulgarian army, who
'had been authorized by Czar Ferdinand to arrange for an armistice
leading - to peice.
BERLIN AGHAST AT TREACHERY
lterlfn reported that Germany, intends to enter a solemn protest
with the Bulgarian government against the move for pence and the
treachery this shows towards Bulgaria's Teuton allies. The pro
test is to be made to the Czar, who is not held responsible for Pre
mier Malinoff's overtures to the Entente.
Another Berlin despatch, by way of C.ojtetlhagtn. claims that
Malinoff's otft-r is not Supported either by the Bulgarian ruler nor
1... .1,.. It.dn'jri!.!. -aKi..t Th.. in.
has created great dissatisfaction in Sofia and elsewhere throughout
lUilgaria. coining as it does at a time where Germany is making
iirnnir efforts to sunixirt the Unitarian front.
A Sofia despatch bv way of
strong Gemwn control, states that a counter movement against the
actum of MalitiotT hR already been het on foot.
