of the readjustment plans will be to

possible and the full opportunity for

the country' regarding what Is to hap-
pen In the matter of the draft and
other military activities going on.
The War Department and every' other
Government agency began to stagger
to-day under tons of messages from
every quarter asking for enlighten
ment. Tney poured In from tire big
Industrial centres all day long, yester
day's extraordinary demonstration
having stimulated many of them.
Secretary' Baker was besieged by
newspaper, correspondents to-day with
Inquiries regarding the Government's
plans but the Secretary declined flatly
to make any announcement until the
armistice had been signed. He did,
however, deny that any orders had
gone forth holding up draft calls or
Interfering with the selective process
how being conducted by local boards.
The report that the draft would be
stopped he refused to affirm or deny.
That the Government already had be
gun to cancel many contracts Mr. Bauer
I also denied.
No Contracts Ilelnar Cancelled.
"So far as I know," said Mr. Baker
"tnere has been not a single contract
cancelled on account of the pendency of
the armistice. The Government Is can
celling contracts all the time In the
ordinary course of business for which the
present situation Is In no wise responsi
ble." The hotels of the capital are filling up
fast with persons holding contracts who
are frantically trying to get Inside Infor
mation on what Is going to happen, but
so far have not succeeded.
Little doubt is felt here that the sign
In of the armistice will result not only
In instantly halting the calls of drafted
men to the camps but also In shutting
down on troop shipments. It was re
ported to-day that a division which was
on the point of embarking yesterday had
Its sailing orders cancelled.
There are now approximately 2.000,000
men under arms In this country and
2,000,000 abroad. Demobilization of the
men under arms In this, country' prob
ably will be begun Immediately upon
the signing of the armistice, but It is a
process which will take many months.
It Is understood the plans being worked
out provide for the application of the
selective process to demobilization by
which the men for certain industries will
be taken first.
The navy Is considering a plan by
which men will be allowed to make ap
plications for Immediate dismissal and
If they can show that places are await
ing them these will be granted.
It Is the belief of many Senators who
have given thourht to the problem that
the return of the men w the National
Army camps In this country should be
accomplished Just aa speedily as pos
sible, They assert that this is partlcu
larly true of the men who have been
taken from certain Industries like agri
culture and food production.
Government economists declare that
any system of Immediate' demobilization
sending 2,000,000 men back to Jobs,
many of which are held by women, or
men brought from other employment
would bring economic conditions fraught
with great danger.
The men In France can be brought
homt only as fast as ship tonnage can
be made available.
Fewer Ships for Troops.
This nation In recent months has sent
260,000 men a month to Europe. This
was accomplished with the aid of many
British ships. When hostilities ceaso
these ships will be withdrawn to trans
port British troops to Canada. Australia
and India, and to resume commerce. The
nercentaae of transport In American
hips has steadily risen, but It Is not
more than half. This means that the
maximum rate of return will be consid
erably under the rate of departure un
less neutral ships coming" to America for
foodstuffs and raw materials can be se
cured. Even so. It will take many months to
bring odr forces home. It Is likely that
American garrisons will occupy the
rthlne and other Oerman border prov
inces and will police northern France.
This would take a considerable force and
would permit the French and Belgians
to turn to the work of reconstruction.

WILLIAM REPLIES 'NO'
TO UL TIM A TUM SENT

Refuses to Assume "Terrible Responsibility" of Hand
ing Germany to Entente and "Delivering Country
Up to Anarchy" Maximilian Resigns.
AMSTERDAM, Nov, 8. Emperor William of Germany has refused
to accede to the demands that he abdicate, says a German wireless
despatch picked up here to-night.
To an ultimatum of the Socialists the Emperor replied through
Minister of the Interior Drews that he refused to abdicate voluntarily on
the crnnnH that he rnnlH not nt thn moment of nence nndertake tho ter-
'rible responsibility of handing over Germany to the Entente and deliver
' ing up the country to anarchy.
BASEL, Nov. 8. The abdication of Emperor William and the re
nunciation of the throne by Crown Prince Frederick William before
noon to-day were demanded in an ultimatum sent by the managing com
mittee of the German Socialist party at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon to
Prince Maximilian of Baden, the Imperial Chancellor, according to the
Correspondence Socialiste, the official organ of the Socialist party of
Five Demands In Ultimatum.
The mniiiigitiK committee of the
Socialist party considered the entire
political Munition uml Its decisions

which I'hillpp KchtlldemniHi, Socialist
member of the German Cabinet with-
out portfolio, sent to Chancellor

Threat of Withdrawal Made.
The Imperial Chancellor was asked
to reply before noon to-day, accepting
the conditions. Otherwise the Social
IstH declared they would withdraw
from the Government.
The Berlin Goreffc announces that
the Inter-Party Committee of the
Reichstag has taken no decision re
specting the question of the abdica
tion of the German Kmperor, but that
the majority recognizes the Impera
tive necessity of an early sotutlon of
the problem. ,

Mathlas Erzberger, leader of the Ger

described by the German pre and other
Teuton sources ns the true representa
tive of the German people, was at one
time the Imperial German propaganda
paymaster, according to depositions
made public yesterday by Alfred L.
Becker, Deputy State Attorney-General.
The depositions which .were obtained
by Mr. Becker In recent Investigations
Into the spreading of German propa
ganda in this country allege that Erz
berger, who is now the German Foreign
Secretary and head of the German War j
Press Department, paid D.000.000 marks i has been stopped at the request of th-1

Mrs. Ralph Thomas of this city ojout
a year ago. In a deposition prepared for
Mr. Becker, said that when In Sivltxer-1
land in ISIS he met and had rrlenaiy
association w'th Abas Ililml Pasha.
Ills deposition also alleged that
Ms,-, 1915, Manilas Erzberger appeared
at the Rltz-Carlton Hotel In Luzerne,
Switzerland, and there paid to the for -
mer Khedive B.000.000 marks to be need
; vjctmuu yiuianniiu m i-iam-e ttnu
Italy. It was runner alleged that in
November of the same year Krzberger
demanded from the former Khedive an
accounting for the propaganda fund.
The former Khedive nnd the Kaiser's
paynaster had a stormy Interview, ac
cording to Prince Nour-eddln. who said
that the ex-Khedlve made an account
ing. This accounting, said Hllml Pasha,
as quoted by the Prince, consisted of a
statement that 2.000,000 marks were
paid to Bolo Pasha to enrry on German
propaganda in France, 1 000.000 marks
were paid to Flllppo Cavalinl for similar
work In Italy, and the balance of 2,000,
000 marks were retained as a commis
sion for distributing the funds.
The second deposition obtained by I
Mr. Becker was th.t of Pallh GorgJI, a I
Turkish Journalist who was pro-ally and
went to Home when Turkey entered the
war on- the German side.
GorgJI deposed that he knew Krz
berger when the latter visited Borne In
1914 and the early part of 1915, and
that the German Imperial paymaster
had carried with him a fund with which
to bribe Italian deputies.
In commenting on the affulr Mr.
Becker said yestenlnj :
"Germany Is claiming loudly her de
mocratization, but when nn important
mission Is selected to represent her in
the armistice negotiations they put at Its
head Dr Mathlas Krzberger, who be
longs to the same old gang that tried to

terms handed this morning to her dele
gates on the western front. The German
plea that hostilities be suspended st once
prior to the seventy-two hours time limit
which has been granted the Germans for
ebnulderation has been rejected by Mar
shal Foch. Announcement to this effect
whs made to-day by Secretary Tanning.

of eenty-two hours three days had
bien given Germany In which to accept
or reject the term". The seventy-two
hour", according to the State Depart
ment advices, had begun at 11 A M.
Tills would indicate that the pMInilnn -

and that It was not until these iiad been

had read them over that the time limit
