Washington Not Concerned With
Action of German Royal
TOO LATE TO
Military Program of the United
States and Allies Not To
Washington, No1. 9. The tremen
dous news from Germany that tha
kaiser had decided to abdicate was
heard in Washington with scarcely
more than a ripple of interest.
Everywhere the question asked
was: Vilas the armistice been signed?"
So far as the American government
knows late tonight it has not been
signed and the prevailing belief here
is that the German answer to . Marshal
Foch could not be expected before to
morrow. To members of the . government and
diplomats who, a few short weeks
ago, would have been amazed and
gratified beyond belief, the announce
ment that William had bowed before
the will of the world was accepted as
a thing to be expected. 1
One thing officials emphasized was
that whatever might happen with
Germany at this late date, would make
no difference in the military program
of the allied and American govern
ments. There will be no modifica
tion of the surrender terms.
As to the effect of the kaiser's abdi
cation on the . speed with which the
German reply will be sent to Marshal
Foch, ro one was prepared to speak
It is a recognized possibility that
the socialists, apparently taking the
r jigns laid down by war lords, might
attempt to make their ascendency the
basis ci another appeal for discus
sion or modifications of the surrender
conditions, but the allies' minds are
fully made up. The terms of armis
tice will be sufficient guarantee that
the Germans will not again endanger
their neighbors while an authoritative
government is being set up. . .
..v :M JtkWm
Just beyond Paris, Versailles, where terms of surrender for the central powers have been
drafted has had to take precautions against air raids and long distance bombardments. Note the

CONSERVATIVE FRENCH OPINION
BELIEVES GERMANS MILL GIVE
UP WITHIN NEXT - TWO DAYS.
THINK REVOLUTION SPREADING.
. Paris, Nov. 9 French- opinion,, which
is remarkably, restrained and conser
vative,, js unanimous in the view that
Germany will cap! tulate -between, mow
and Monday. ' . ;
There is no tendency to exaggerate
happenings in Germany, but it is felt
that the Germans have had enough to
make-.it imperative for the govern
ment to make peace at the earliest
M. Copies, writing in the Figaro,
fairly sums up the views of all edi
torial writers when he says:
"The details of revolutionary move
ments in Germany are lacking, but we
learn enough from hour to hour to
feel alread that th-ey are neither hup
erficial nor fictitious. Do they con
tain deep-set revolution? Are they
but riots due to the reaction of de
feat? What authority does the re
public proclaimed at Mufflnich pos
sess? These are questions which con
cern Germany alone."
While Germany is reflecting on the
allies terms, Marshal Foch continues
blows - without intermission. The
German army may break at any mo
ment. There were signs of a new re
treat from the Scheldt yesterday, and
the French are along the Meuse over
a front of fifteen miles. Tlve . alter
native for Germany now is armistice
or invasion not evasion.
ALLIES TO FEED
VICTIMS OF WAR
Washington, Nov. 9. Immediate ar-
rangements . are to be made by the

jnstant information as to the shipping
facilities which: the United States can
supply. -' ;

Paris, Nov. 9 Peace will find Uncle
Sam with thousands of battered motor
ambulances on his hands. But he need
not call in the junk man. .
Three out of every - five Yanks in

Every soldier vy'io incubates the idea

FOCH READ PEACE TERMS
TO GERMAN EMISSARIES
Paris, Nov. 9.-5 a. m. Germany's
armistice delegates were received by
Marshal Foch in a railroad car, iu
which the commander-in-chief of -the
allied force has his headquarters, ac
cording to the Petit Journal. When
the German's credentials had been
opened and verified, Marthias Erz
berger, leader of the "enemy delegation,
speaking in ' French, announced that
the German government had been ad
vised by President Wilson that . Mar
shal Foch was qualified to' communi
cate to them the allies conditions and
had appointed them plenipotentiaries
to take cognizance of. the terms anl
eventually sign the armistice.
Marshal Foch then read the terms
in a loud voice, dwelling upon each
word. The Germans were prepared
by semi-official communications for
the stipulations, as a whole, hut hear
ing set forth in detail the concrete de
mands seemed to bring to them for
the first time full realization of the
extent of the German defeat "
They made a few observations,
merely pointing out material difficul
ties standing in the way of carrying
out some quite secondary clauses.
Then Erzberger asked for a suspension
of hostilities in the interests of hu
manity. This request Marshal Foch
flatly refused. . ,
The delegates, having obtained' ner-
mission to send a courier to Spa ani
communicate with that place by wire
less, withdrew. Marsh Foch Imme
diately wrote an account of the pro
ceedings and, sent them by an aide to
Premier Uemenceau. who received
