The report of the com mittee may take the form of sug gested legislation. The whole effect of the readjustment plans will be to the end of bringing about necessary changes with as little dislocation as possible and the full opportunity for all to benefit as In the past by Indi vidual Ingenuity, vision and fair, drai ns. Under the Overman act, which runs ntll tho proclamation of peace, the (resident has power to transfer all he war boards to tho various regu larly constituted Departments of the Jovernment, and It Is likely this will e done.

Under he railroad control law it ooatlnues to operate for twenty-one months after the proclamation of peace, when railroad control automatically ceases.

NEED JLENFOR GAItKISONS Selective Process Planned for Demobilization Navy Opens Way for Discharges. Prince Maximilian of Baden, the Imperial German .Chancellor, has Special Dttpatcft to Tn six. resigned, according to a German wireless despatch. The wireless says Washington. Nov. 8. Confusion and j that Prince Max tendered his resignation in view of the altered parliamcn uncertalnty already exist throughout Wary situation, but that acceptance of it is still outstanding. 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. Fonr Fall to Denth In HmokestnrU. Chicago, Nov. 8.

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 Germany. Five Demands In Ultimatum. The mniiiigitiK committee of the Socialist party considered the entire political Munition uml Its decisions wcro embodied In try ultimatum ' which I'hillpp KchtlldemniHi, Socialist member of the German Cabinet with- out portfolio, sent to Chancellor Mr.xlmllluii.

Third The Immediate transfor mation of the Prussian Govern ment lu conformity wWi the views of the majority In the Reichstag. Fourth Greater Socialist Influ ence In the Kelchstag. Fifth The abdication of Em peror William and the renunciation of the throne by the Crown Prince. 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. , ThH Vorwaertx of Berlin publishes ,. a new proclamation to German work- j men by the Social Democratic party , In which Is empnasizeu ine pari n firm Intention to obtain full demo- cratlc liberty for the German people.

Leonard Wood to-day posted the following appeal to men of the Tenth Division : "Even If an armistice Is signed It does not mean the end of the war.

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 to Abas miml Pa-lia. former Khedive, Berlin postal authorities.

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.
