I'ajub, Nov, 7. There Is reason to

man Government to the effect that If an
armistice Is not concluded without delay
hu wUI be obliged otllcially to order the

Tills action, It Is added, would be taken

Anthracite at the -Mine.
Wabhj.votov, Nov. 7. Orjly careful
' se of anthracite coa) by householders
" 'H prevent Mirterlng this winter, Fuel
Administrator Garfield said to-day.
Ho announced that production of an
"raeite had been reduced about 500,000
' n by tho Influenza epidemic
toiifinusd from First Paye.
Inkling as to tho result, of tills most
momentous meeting possfbly in th his
tory of the world. A tension such ns
probably never was known In history
lias spread around the clobo and can
only bo broken by the official announce
ment whatever that may be.
By that time the country's remark
able victory celebration may bo nil
over. It Is possible, though not prob
able, that fighting may be going on moro
furiously than ever before.
The State Department had announced
that until 11:30 o'clock to-nlgHt they
would await the coming of some sort of
confirmation of tho news report which
had set an entire nation agog for a day.
The hour came and paused and the State
Department officials met tho termination
of their time limit of expectation with
the statement: "Wo havo nothing at
all." -
Tho Gorman parllamentalres have
come to Marshal Foch fully cognizant
of what Is In storo for them. They know
the armistice terms 'Which Austria was
forced to accept. They know the text
of lresldent Wilson a last noto to the
German Government warning It of tho
tremendous Indemnity which Germany
must pay. They have no reason to be
lieve that the terms to Germany will be
less bevcro than tlmso Imposed upon
But with thlB advance knowledge they
are reported to bo empowered to con
clude tho nrmlstlca negotiations. The
assumption here, therefore. Is that they
will come prepared to accept the Inev
itable. Developments In Germany, and partic
ularly latent developments on the west
ern front, nil lend to hasten this German
decision. Nevertheless, officials here ex
pect that tho armistice negotiations may
consume two or threo days. WIU Aus
tria there was pme delay. The llrest
Litovsk nrmlstlce consumed threo days.
The time limit which Marshal Koch
has placed upon the proceedings would
not necessarily bar all discussion, pro
vided this did not" Involve depnrture
from tho actual terms laid down at tho
conferenco at Versailles. For example,
suggestions from the Germans as to the
moot practical method of cxeAiting tn
armistice might be entertained.
All Is lu re-idlne.'s here for calling off
the war. If news that the armistice has
been signed comes It will be flashed' Im
mediately to nil American war vessels
on the seven seas and would automatic
ally br'ng to a stop every form of mili
tary operation.
Jlut though this Is expected to ho the
next development" tho Allies and the
United States aio not taking anything
for granted. Wur activities all along
the line are to bo maintained at top
kpeed until this Hash Is received.
The unusual development f to-day
may result in the official nnnouneemerf
having a different reception from -what
had been anticipated for It. It had been
expected by all Governments that as soon
ss the announced signing of tho armis
tice, if It should bo signed, to their
peoples, there would be one of the wild
est celebrations In tho world's history to
mark thp end of four years of battlo and
bloodshed. Hut It Is scarcely conceivable
that a second celebration on the scale of
the one seen to-day will follow the official
announcement here.

Washington, Nov. 7. I'lans arc be
ing formulated by tho Administration
hero for a series of shipping agreements
nnd arrangements ,that will, innko ship
tonnage available to American Industry
for exportation of manufactured p'rbd
ucts as n reconstruction measure of tho
first Importance.
Tho question of foreign trade Is rap
idly becoming paramount In Washing
ton. Cabinet members and other high
officials have a full realization that uion
foreign trado depends to a large extent
the salvation of American InduKrj".
As a result of this situation activities
jf the Department of Commerce aro to
bo enlarged, and during tho reconstruc
tion period It will be able to deiend on
tho War Trado Uoard In securing ship
ping space. ' Tho Department will aid
American manufacturers In ovfry way
to find markets In the New and the Old
World. The War Trado ISoard will ox

spaco that will bo at a premium.
Tho coming of peace Is not expected to

for commercial use becauso of tho neces
sity of troop movoments ffom th theatro,
of war. American ships, however, trans
