New York narrowly escaped a serions
riot as the result of the flaunting of

As it was, Fifth Avenue above Forty
jecond Street saw the start of a riotous
demonstration in which soldiers, sail?
ors and civilians joined, in a de?
termined effort to down red flags being
carried by marchers, and Carnegie Hall,
where a big mass meeting, under the
auspices of the Socialist Party was

?a march to Carnegie Hall. One or

Germans Are Racing
Toward Own Border
GIUM, Monday, Nov. 11 (By The
Associated ?ress) (8 p. m.).?All
day long the rearguard troops of
the shattered and defeated German
armies opposite the British front
have been racing for their own
border as though their lives de?
pended on reaching their own land
by nightfall.
As the Germans disappeared
from the scene, thousands of civil?
ians in scores of towns and ham?
lets tasted freedom after four
years of bondage. From places
near the British line thousands of
these people took the westward
road and marched, cheering, back
to greet their deliverers.

i LONDON, Nov. 12 (By The Asso?
ciated Press) (4 p. ?t.).?Germany
has requested the President of the
i United States, according to a Ger?
man wireless message from Berlin,
to arrange immediately for the open?
ing of peace negotiations, there be?
ing a pressing danger of famine.
The message was sent by Foreign
Secretary Solf to Secretary of State
Lansing. It said:
! "The armistice Seifig cbScl?dm
' the German government requests
th? President of the United States to
arrange for the opening of peace
1 "For the purpose of their acceler?
ation the German government pro?
poses, first of all, to take in view the
conclusion of a preliminary peace,
and asks for a communication as to
what place and at what time the ne?
gotiations might begin.
In Danger of Famine
"As there is a pressing danger of
famine, the Germen government is
particularly anxious for the negotia?
tions to begin immediately."
The fall text of the message re?
ceived yesterday addressed by Solf
to Secretary Lansing, requesting
President Wilson to mitigate the
"fearful conditions" imposed on Ger?
many, follows:
"Convinced of the common aims j
and ideals of democracy, the Ger?
man government has addressed it?
self to the President of the United
States, with the request to re?
establish peace. This peace wa3
meant to correspond with the prin?
ciples the President always has
maintained. The aim was to be a
just solution of all questions in
dispute, followed by a permanent
reconciliation of all nations.
"Furthermore, the President de?
clared he did not wish to make
war on the German people, and did
not wish to impede its peaceful de?
velopment. The German govern?
ment has received the conditions
of the armistice.
Millions Face Starvation
"After the blockade those con?
ditions, especially the surrender
of means of transport and the sus?
tenance of the troops of occupa- !
t.ion, would make it impossible to
provide Germany with food and
would cause the starvation of
millions of men, womejfc and chil?
dren, all the more as the blockade i
is to continue.
"We had to accept the condi- j
tions, but feel it is. our duty to j
draw the President's attention
most solemnly and in all earnest?
ness to the fact that enforcement
of the conditions must produce ?
among the German people feelings
contrary to those upon which alone
the reconstruction of the commu?
nity of nations can rest, guaran?
teeing a just and durable peace.
"The German people, therefore, !
in this fateful hour, address them
selves again to the President with |
the request that he use his influ

j Separate Pact
! Be Forbidden
?Poindexter Wants All Ne
I gotiations To Be Conduct
i ed Jointly With Allie?
(Special Dispatch to The Tribun?)
WASHINGTON, Nov\ 12.?The Poin
? dexter resolution proposing that the
! United States enter into full alliance
: with the Entente and decline to open
separate peace negotiations with the
German government was introduced in
I the Senate to-day. This resolution,
1 prepared by the Senator from Wash?
ington ten days ago, has been awaiting
formal introduction since the Senate
began its election recesses.
In addition to prohibiting any sep?
arate peace discussions by this coun?
try with the Central Powers, the Poin
dexter proposal would have the United
States become a party to the agreement
known as the Pact of London.
The resolution originally was
drafted to prevent any move on the \
part of the United States which would
tend to detach her from her allies in
the consummation of peace with Ger?
many. Senator Poindexter still feels,
however, that the Congress should
guard against this possibility, end
points to the attempt of the German
Foreign Secretary, Solf, to secure an '?
amelioration of the armistice terms ?
in the German appeal to President j
Wilson published here yesterday.
The Poindexter resolution reads:
"Whereas, the cause of the United
States in the present war againsi ;
the German and Austro-Hungarian ?
empires ie identical with that of our !
allies, all having as a common ob- ;
ject complete and permanent victory ?
over the enemy and a peace on such j
terms as will prevent a recurrence ?
of the catastrophe; and
"Whereas, the United States and |
her aliies have established unity of j
military command in the prosecu?
tion of the war, and it is desirable
that there should likewise and for
the same reason be unity of diplo?
matic action between the United
States and her aliies with reference
to their common enemy, and
"Whereas, The German government
addressed peace proposals to the
United States government, separate
; and apart from the allies of the

' States upon the terms of peace, and
