REPLY TO PRESIDENT WILSON'
. INQUIRY GOES ONLY
NO PEACE AND NO ARMISTICE
Elimination of Hohenzollerns and
Militarists Necessary Safer Hos
tilities Can End People Urged to
Withhold Judgment on Hun Note.
W a s h I n k t o n. President Wilson
made up his mind a weok ago Just
what ho would say to Germany It she
Answered as she did in the reply ot
last night. The president asked three
questions bo Germany could give "a
fitraightforward aiiBWor." He set
forth the throo obstacU to peace. Gor
many has removed two of them, but
not the last tho most Important of
nil evacuation of all Invadod terri
tory. Accoptanco ot ProBldont Wll
Bon'H fourteen poace principles; aye,
acceptance even of Mr. Wilson's sub
sequent Interpretation of thorn, is go
ing only half way. Germany must
come the other half or tho first part
In othor words, Germany must glvo
tho world a responsible government
whose word can bo taken. Until then
All promises, oven the literal fulfill
ment of Mr. Wilson's first two ques
tions, can be swept asldo by the grim
hand of militarism.
War Lords Must Go.
Tho kalner and his militaristic sys
tem which started tho war must bo
mado impotent, politically if not phy
Blcally. Thoro will be no peace until
tho Hohonzollorns and junkers are out
of power In Oormany and ho far ro
movod from Jt that they cannot come
back again when onco tho peace
treaty Is slgnod to continue anew
tholr autocratic deviltry.
The president has Bomo things to
say In explanation ot his own four
toon princlploo so that thoro may ho
no misunderstanding on doubt, but tho
paramount Issue with him is who shall
guarantee tho poaco In Germany. That
Is why ho asked: "Doos tho lmporlal
chancellor speak merely for the con
stituted authorities of tho omplro who
have so far conducted tho war?" Tho
chancellor replied evasively that he
poko In tho name of "tho German
government and the Gorman pooplo."
May Repeat Former Words,
This gives Mr. Wilson tho oppor
tunlty to say firmly and candidly whut
ho said in his famous speech In New
York on Septombor 27 of tho govern
ment of the central omoplres:
"Thoy lmvo convinced us that thoy
are without honor and do not Intond
Justice. Thoy obsorvo no covonants,
accopt no principles but force and
tholr own lntorosts. We cannot come
to terms with thorn. Thoy havo mado
it lmposslblo. Tho German pooplo
must by thlp Mmo bo fully awaro that
wo cannot accost tho word of Uiobo
who forcod tho war upon us. We do
not think tho samo thoughts or Bpeak
tho samo language of nrgumont."
Mr. WIIhoii can rSpoat that, per
haps not exactly In that form, but In
substance tho Bamo thought. It will
narrow the situation down to one
point tho elimination of tho Hohen
zollerns and militarism. If tho Oor
man pooplo caro moro for that family
than for their own destinies thoro will
bo war until Marshal Foch persuades
thorn to think otherwise If tho Gor
man people are ready to desert tho
kaiser for tholr own safety thoy will
welcome tho opportunity to force his
withdrawal. Tho omporor himself
may docldo to abdlcato as a horolo
stop toward tho making of poaco. Ono
thing Is cortaln thore will bo no
peace until tho kalsor and his cohorts
can no longer disturb the poaco of tho
FRANCE DI8TRUSTS REPLY.
Suspicion Prevnlla that Germany Is
Evading the Ubuh.
Itirls. Tho reply of tho GormMi
Government to - President Wlls'ii's
questions la considered here to hull
cato that Gormany'a diplomatic front
is ab'floxlblo as hor military front.
Somo of tho commentators find the
reply bo wordod as to show tho hope
of tho Germans that it will result In
cloavago botweon the allies. Gen. La
crolr in tho Temps says:
"Germany's acceptance of Prosidont
Wilson's conditions is an avowal of
dofoat. Foch Is tho solo Judgo from
tho military point of view and will
know how to oxact tho necossary
guarantees from tho enemy and what
territorial occupations must bo im
posed." Almost all of tho newspapers ex.
proBs similar views.
In the popular discussion ot the ro

many Is evading the issue.

Senator Kirby Says, "We're Organized
to Whip Hell Out of
Washington, Oct. 8. Sentiment In
both branches of congress Is emphat
ically opposed to according even a re
spectful hearing to nny peace sugges
tions from Germany or Austria until
they openly admit defeat and completo
falluro of their wur alms, or are thor
oughly thrashed by force of nrms.
If the central powers sincerely do
Hlro a cessation of hostilities and

This Is the opinion expressed by both
senators nnd representatives. It Is
Insisted that unconditional surrender
must precede uny serious consideration
of peace proposals.
If such action Is not forthcoming,
from tho rulers of tho enemy coun
tries, It Is suggested war with nil its
terrible lessons of horror nnd desola
tion must bo brought home to the peo
ple of Germany nnd Austrin.
