I Orders Transmitted to Units and Americans
II Lessen Activities Only to Be Forced to Reply
to Sharp Resumption of Fire by
the German Forces.
WITH THE AMERICAN FORCES
IN FRANCE. Monday. Nov. 11. (By
the Associated Press) Orders an
nouncing' that the armistice between
' the allied powers and Germany had
been signed and giving directions as
to the future conduct of allied soldiers
along the line were sent to every corps
this morning.
They were transmitted to the units,
in the front ranks. The orders fol
low: "1. You are Informed that hostili
ties will cease along the wholo front
at eleven o'clock a. m., November 11,
191 S, Paris time.
"2. No allied taroops will pass the
lino reached by them at that hour and
date uniil further orders.
"3. Division commanders will im
mediately sketch the location of their
front line. This sketch will be re
turned to headquarters by the courier
bearing these orders.
"M. All communication -.with the cn
'iny, both before and after the ter
mination of hostilities Js absolutely
forbidden. In case of violation of this(
' order severest disciplinary measures
will be immediately be taken. Any
officer offending will be sent to head
quarters under guard.
"5. Every emphasis will bo laid on
the fact that the arrangement is an
ff armistice and not a peace.
"6. There must be no relaxation
of vigilance Troops must be pro-
pared at any moment for further op
; orations.
; "1. Special steps will be taken by
v nil commanders to insure strictest dis
; clpline and Uijit alL troops bo held In
"t ' readiness fully prepared for any even
I ' tuality.
"S. Division and brigade comnian-
Iders will personally communicate
theso orders to all organizations."
Signal corps wires, telephones and
runners were used in carrying t.he or
ders and so well did the big machine
work that even patrol commanders
had received tho orders well in ad
vance of the hour.
Apparently tho Germans also had
been equally diligent In getting tho

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. The ap
aeal of Dr. Solf, foreign secretary at

Iwltzerland. It was sent Immediately

LONDON, Nov. 11. Dr. Solf. the
Serman foroign secretary, has 'ad
Iressed a message to Secretary .of
Itato Lansing, requesting that Presl
lent WIlBon intervene to mltlgato "the
I fearful conditions" existing in Ger-
II nany.
t Dr. Solf says, according to a Gor

bday, that ho feels it his duty to draw
resident Wilson's attention to the
net that tho enforcement of the con
i HtlonH of tho nrnilntlce, especially tho

mi
orders to their front line. Notwith
standing the hard fighting they did
Sunday to hold back the Americans,
the Germans were able to bring the
firing to an abrupt end at the sche
duled hour.
The staff and field ofHcers of the
American arrrfy were disposed early in
the day to approach the hour of eleven
with lessened activity. The day began
with less firing and doubtless the
fighting would have ended according
to plan, had there not been a sharp
resumption on the part of German bat
teries. The Americans looked upon
this as wanlpnly useless. It was then
that orders were sent to the battery
commanders for increased fire.
Although there was no reason for it,
German ruthlessness was still ram
pant Sunday, stirring the American
artillery in the region of Dun-Sur-Meuse
and Mouzay to greater activity.
Six hundred aged men and women and
children were in Mouzay when the
Germans attacked jt with gas. There
was only a small detachment of Amer
ican troops there and tho town no
longer was of strategical value: How
ever it was made the direct target o'
shells filled with phosgene. Tho ene
my hurled them into the town until
every street reeked with gas.
Not contented with this, the Ger
mans again drenched tho place with
gas last night, even while they were
evacuating Stenay, a few miles to the
north- Prompt work by the Americans
saved most of the civilians from "ser
ious consequences.
Poorly clad and showing plainly cvi-dences-of
malnutrition tho inhabitants
crowded about tho Americans, kissing
their hands and hailing them as de
liverers. They declared they had had
no meat for six weeks. They virtual
ly had been prisoners oL-war for foui
years and were overwhelme-with jo)
when they learned that an armistice
was probable.

10 years spoko . German alternate!)
with French. It was the first timt
they had seen Americans and the)
showed plainly their amazement.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. The ap
peal of Dr. Solf, foreign secretary at
Berlin, for intervention by President
Wilson to mitigate the "fearful condi
tions" which, the terms of the armistice
would Jrnpose and which he says
threatens starvation and ruin In Ger
many, had not reached Washington
today, in ofilclal form.
The text of the message as picked
up last night by wireloss, however,
was before the president and it may
bo given immediate consideration.
Officials said DrSolf is needlessly
alarmed, while every stipulation of the
armistice terms must be kept in force
to prevent the possibility of treachery,
such rolling stock and ships as may be
necessary to provide food and other
essentials will be put into use in
Germany and on tho seas.
In view of tho situation in Germany,
whore outside aid may bo necessary
to prevent anarchy, it is possible that
tho' president may see flt to tako up
with the allied governments the ques
tion of giving some kind of reassur
ance fit the humane purposes of the
associated powers.
Among other things, it Is understood,
tho plan Is to put the German mer
chant marine into service, as soon as
possible, after the problem creat
ed by the naval revolt Is cleared up,
and such vessels necessary will be
employed for sending supplies through
Gorman ports.
Due precautions will be taken, of
course, to see that theso supplies arc
devoted to , the purposes for which
thoy are intended. President Wilson

Seas to Be Patrolled and
1 Kept
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. Until
German submarines and other ,war
craft designated in the armistlcciterms
have been surrendered and the- re
mainder of the enemy's naval forces
disarmed, Secretary Daniels said to
day, the American navy will in no way
relax its vigilance. Instructions to this
effect arc assumed to be already in
the hands of the commanders of all
, ships.
Tho navy department, Mr. Daniels
said, had not been officially notified
early today of the situation as to the
German fleet, said to bo under control
of revolutionary committees of the
soldiers' and workmen's council,
j Detailed instructions for the turning
over of the surrendered ships and
other steps for naval disarmament
were not contained in the armistice It
self, but were communicated in at
tached notes which have since been
communicated to Washington.
XVitli tho German army presumably
under orders from Berlin, tho situa
tion of the German fleet would be crit
ical if they, defied the Berlin authorit
ies. Shore batteries' could soon compel
them to put to sea and the allied naval
power concentrated for the task un
doubtedly would make short work of
them. Officers here can yet seo no
real threat of a renewal of hostilities
because they believe the crews of tho
German ships realize the utter hope
lessness of their situation if they at
tempt defiance.

Emperorf Charles Has

Reporifrom Vienna. I
V $
LONDON, Nov. 12. S:46 a. in.)
Emperor Charges of Austria has ab
dicatcdj. according to a Copenhagen
dispatch, to.lie Exchange, Telegraph
company quoting private advices from
Vienna., $1
The abdication of Emperor Charles:
has been H'uniorcd several times in
the past twolwcoks, but none of these
reports havhficn confirmed. On Oc-
tober 29, it was reported that he had
fled from Vienna, but this report was
denied by a Berlin newspaper, which
said he Avas at the Austrian capital
on October 3Qand that he had been
cordially recorded by the people while
going about (ho city. The most re
cent report iiif connection with Em
peror Charles was received on Novem
ber 2, when Itiwas said that he" had
announced his .Intention to abdicate.
Emperor Charles I of Austria, King
of Hungary, was an unpromising ma
jor in an Austrian infantry regiment
when the shot of the assassin who
killed the Archduko Francis Ferdinand
on June 28, 191-1, made him the heir
apparent to thie throne in the "Hawk's i
Castle" on the banks of the River Aar.
Two hundred or more monarchs of
this historic1 house of Hapsburg ruled
for centuries the land of Magyar, Slav
and Teeuton centuries of bloodshed,
tyranny and ' aggression aiul sloop
their last slee'p in tho wonderful crypt
X JJie Cajttjilfthin church in Vienna,
ncffiiperof - Francis JosepH. the tiged
I predecessor of.the youthful Charles,
seeing "tho handwriting on the wall,"
' had hoped to unite tho discordant ele
ments among his 0,000,000 subjects
whose racial antagonism were compli
cated by the absorption by Austria of
the Serbian provinces of Bosua and
Herzegovina In 1908.
It was the Archduke Francis Fer
dinand's determination to bring about
a tri-une empire made up of Magyar,
Slav and German states, it is general
ly believed, that led to his assassina
tion in Sarajevo. Francis Ferdinaud
feared tho dual monarchy might be
ended upon tho death of Francis Jo
seph by the Intervention of Russia or
Germany and sought thu3 to forestall
it.
Charles I was born August 17, 1SS7,
the son 6f the late Archduke Otto of
Saxony. He married the Princess Zita
of the Bourbon house of Parma (Ital
ian) In 1911. When the Nunc Dimit-.
tis was sung for his dead granduncle,
the Emperor Francis Joseph, the only
achievements of Charles brought to
public notice wore that he was a keen
sportsman, an excellent shot and mo
torist. Frequently he was seen in the
parks of Vienna wheeling one of his
young dukes in a baby perambulator.
When he accedod to thb throne on
December 30, 191C, Austria-Hungary,
torn by years of war, saw tho first
faint gleam of possible peace.
aThe course of tho new ruler was
regulated largely from fieerlin and for
the first six months of his reign Austria-Hungary
was regarded as a mere
German state. Hindenburg's success-j
es in Gallcla in 1916. In which Charle'sj
shared as a commander in the field,
gavo the young monarch a prestige
which enabled him to hold the Aus
Irians to the Central Powors until the
collapso of Bulgaria and Turkey and
the final crash.
Numerous peace overtures and
manoeuvers characterized tho dlplo-
I macy of the dual monarchy after
.Francis Joseph's death, precipitated
1 doubtless by bread riots and other
(outbreaks throughout Austria. Unable
to maintain his pledge to the Gerjnan
I Emperor "to continue the war to the
end" Charles made use of the famous
"Dear Slxtus" letter, an autographed
missive written In April, 1918, to
Prince Slxtus do Bourbon for trans
mission to tho French government in
which the monarch said Franco's
claim to A'isace-Lorraino was "Justi
fied." Although tho letter was denounced
as a "forger)-" In Vienna, the Foroign
Office claiming it had been written
by a French essleslastlc who had beon
acting a3 confessor to the Empress
Zita, subsequent events proved Its au
thenticity. It was the first revelation
of the break between the Gorman Em
peror and his vassal king. Previous
ly Emporor CharloB had Indicated his
doairo for peace, however, in speeches
boforo ho ReichBtrat. In December,
1917, mo declared his wlllIngnouH to
conclude peaco with the Allioa if they
would guarantee the Integrity of Austria-Hungary,
CondlUonrt In tho dual monarchy
were rapidly growing worse. There j
were many cabinet changes and as
sassinations. The Magyars, Czecho
Slavs and other nationalties were
clamoring for constitutional reforms
and autonomous government.
Thereafter Charles' lot was far from
being a happy one. He was reported
to have refused to send Austrian
troops to tho western battlofront de,:
spite the German Emperor's import
tunity. in every way he endeavored
to stem the tide of revolution which i
seemed to be rising. He promised all
kinds of reforms and as a sop to his
discontented subjects pardoned 2d
prisoners awaiting trial at Sarajevo
for high treason.
In October, 1918. he announced plans
for the federalization of Austria-Hungary
and in an address to the Hun
garian Diet frankly admitted his
j throne was In "peril." A day (or two
later Count Karolyi, leader of the
Hungarian republicans, announced the
success of a bloodless revolution in
Budapest and declared Hungary a free
and independent state. Still later the
German and other provinces declared
their purpose to become autonomous
entitles, and the house of thcHaps
burgs, once the leader of the Holy
Roman Empire, seemed to be about to
collapse like a house of cards.

MAMMOTH VICTORY '
CELEBRATIONS IN ALL I
CITIES OF U. S. I
Demonstrations Such as Were Never Seen Before in America
Welcome Signing of the Armistice People in Frenzy ll
of Excitement Everywhere. ll
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11. War-time ,
Washington celebrated noisily the' ad-
vent of peace.
The demonstration was getting well
under way when President Wilson
drovo to the capitol to read to Con
gress tho terms Imposed upon defeat
ed Germany anu it continued uninter
ruptedly until far into the night.
The city's thousands swirled and
eddied through the streets welcoming
the end of the war with confetti, tin
horns and tumult, while automobiles
and trucks loaded with people with
horns going at full blast paraded in an
endless circle over Pennsylvania ave
nue from the capitol to the treasury
building;
The appearance of units in the army,
navy and marine corps in tho parade
in the afternoon inaugurating the un
ited war work campaign for a fund of
170.500,000 for welfare work among
soldiers and sailors was made the oc
casion for 'renewed efforts by the
crowds iu cheering and noise-making.
The president reviewed the pageant
from the executive office gate 'to the l
white house grounds and each of the i (
marchers soldiers, sailors and civil- ,
ians with the throng of spectators, ,
saluted or cheered the executive. ,
In the midst of Washington's peace ,
celebration tonight, President Wilson,
with Mrs. Wilson seated beside him, ,
drove down Pennsylvania avenue .
through throngs of shouting merry-
makers. Ho was recognized by few. ,
Tho greatest day in the history of (
nations has dawned. The German
militaristic classes arrogant beyond
expression aro in defeat.
Kaiser and crown prince arc in
flight refugees in an alien country.
Germanic kings and potentates no
longer hold their sway.
The allied arms are triumphant.
Imperialistic Germany has met the
fate that ultimately must come to any
country thnt seeks to rule tho world.
Deserted by all her allies, Germany,
on her knees, is accepting terms of
capitulation which amount virtually to
abject surrender. Except for actual
hostile military invasion, the once
great European power,, whose mon
archs' ambition was to dominate over
all.. is .in.completo. defeat, . .
Beaten on tho field of battle, the
edict of tho allied chief command is
that the German armies shall retire
into their own home laud from all in
vaded territory. Impotent as the Ger
man armies shall be, as impotent also
shall be the German fleets. Colonies
are lost, and the hand that sought to
reach out and attain additional terri
tory is withered by the ruling of the
supreme war council at Versailles.
Reparation and restitution in fact
full compensation of all kinds, is to
be made by Germany for all the dis
aster that has followed her armies
and those of her allies throughout the
world war.
$ Handwriting on the Wall
Tho handwrititns was on the wall
for Germany. Pier troops had fought
valiantly throushout the lnoro than
four years of warfare. But what has
been considered in Germany as in
vincible army was beaten in feats of
arms'by tho allied powers. Even bo
fore Germanjr's allies deserted her the
strength of the entente allies had be
come apparent. Unprepared, they had
resisted for more than three years the
assaults of an enemy who had been
prepariug for combat since the Franco-Prussian
Avar.
With a determination that could
never recognize defeat, Belgium,
France,' Italy, and Serbia were over
run. Hard days woro experienced by
the allies, but the smilo of hopefull
ness of satisfaction in ultimate suc
cessnever faded. When finally the
United States was drawn into the war
by Germany's continued violations of
international law and of the precepts
of humanity, Ihe gleam of the dawn
of victory for world democracy rose
in the sky.
On the field of battle In France and
' Belgium the Germans were fast be
ing defeated when they flew the white
flag of submission and asked for terms
of peace. Everywhere, from the Bel
gian coast to tho Moselle river, the
allies were pressing them. It was
only a matter of time when their ar
1 mies were to bo decisively beaten on
the battlefield. Their groat fortified
1 lines of resistance had crumpled suc
1 cessivel'y under the Impetus of the at
' tacks of their foes. Thoy were being
harried everywhere from pillar to
post. Even the groat Rhine fortifica
tions. It was foreseen, would prove no
barrier to the onward rush of the vlc
' torlous armies. Hence Germany, de
serted by her allies, recognized that
dofeat stared her In the faco and cap
itulated. For Germany as a nation shorn of
her imperialistic and militaristic pow
ersthe defeat may not prove in the
long run of disadvantage. Already the
revolutions throughout tho country are
tending toward democratization which
may prove thesalvation of a country
onco controlled by war lords.
Fighting on the battlefronts ended
at six o'clock Monday morning, eastern
time In the United States. The ar
mies of the allied forces at that time
even to the second were hard har
rying tho enomy.
The Britinh troops were fighting
their foes across the' Belgian frontier,
in Belgium. The French had all buC itl
cleared the Germans from northern
France. The Americans were driving
northward up the Meusc and Moselle r
rivers, threatening the enemy with I'l
capitulation by envelopment. H
Tho hostilities ended on the elcv-
cnth hour of the eleventh day of thg
eleventh month of 1918, The Amerl
can infantrymen, in true sportsman-
like fashion kept the time. Their
eyes' were on their wrist watches a
they advanced up the Meusc and Mo- M
sellc sectors in the fear that they u
would fire a shot after the stipulated KH
time for the cessation of hostilities
arrived. Not one whit less exact in fH
their sportsmanship were the Amer
lean artillerymen behind the line, who
awaited to the second the time for
the calling off of tho fighting and then
loosed from their big guns a thou
sand of them a rain of shells as a lH
parting salute to the defeated fo'fe. ftH
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 11. Demon
Orations such as have never before lH
)een seen in Philadelphia, welcomed
.ho signing of the armistice. From
arly morning until late tonight the

aent and patriotism. Parade after pa--ado
came through the central streets
(vhich were jammed with shouting
:rowds that threw confetti, blew horns
nuti whistles and uued many other
means to make a noise. Factory whis- 11
Lies blew continuously from before
dawn until tonight. IhI
A general holiday was declared. All
factories, mills and stores closed for
the day and thousands of tho workers 11
rushed to the center of the city to cele
brate. Traffic was badly tied up but
the crowds were unusually good-na- 11
tured and sang and cheered as they
marched the streets.
Mayor Smith headed a procession of 1H
celebrators who marched from city
hall to historic Independence hall. An- lM
other big parade to the shrine of Lib

The city's street car service was de- ;H
moralized by the celebration, the sol- H
diers and sailors taking charge 6f the H
cars after driving away the crews.
Alleged unreasonable prices for food H
