Tork time, t
. 'Should the terms be refused by the
aermann they will forthwith ue wnn
rwn by Marshal Foch. It Is explained.
This would mean that before the ner
mann could hare anofKer chance to bring;
about suspension of hostilities they
would have to make formal application
for another armistice, .and Uielr plea
would ,be considered as separate and
distinct from the present one. The terms
Which Marshal Foch would next read to
tjiem would be more severe In all proba
bility than the pr-sent-condltlons and the
enemy would be made to pay for added
damage dono when It finally came to
arrangements for peace.
Capt. Helldorrt of the German army
Is the omccr who has been Intrusted
with the mission of carrying the terms
through tho French lines to the Kaiser
at Spa. Spa Is about 100 miles north
east .of I -a Capelle, where the German
narllamentaltes crossed tho French lines
last night.
Wireless facilities were at once placed
at the disposal of the German delegates
by Marshal Foch. so that they mlrht
communicate with the German High
Command. This proffer was at once
,taken advantage of and messages sent
by the Germans were picked up In the
course of tho day. Tha Germans dratted
their despatches In open language and
teemed particularly concerned lest there
be delay In getting final Instructions
within the seventy-two hour time limit.
Spa Is rather difficult to reach speedily
bocnuse of the conditions of the roads.
It apparently Is the belief of the Ger
1 .mans that Capt. Ilelldorff may rfnd the
trip by roundabout ways longer than ex
pected. Fhll Pnbllcltr Given.
Wlrele.ca messages sent by Marshal
Foch to Paris were also picked up and
published abroad. It Is noted. A feature
ofthe armistice proceedings appears to
be the full publicity given to the step
by tep events.
It may be partly because of this that
officials from President Wilson down
were Incensed at reports published to
day by a news association to the effect
that all news pertaining to the armistice
proceedings was being "held up."
At President Wilson's direction Sec
retary Lansing Issued the following
statement shortly after noon to-day:
"I am requested and authorized by
the President to state that no Informa
tion reaching 'this Government concern
ing the armlMlce negotiations In France
has been withheld ; that any statement
to' the contrary li utterly false, and that
as soon as a definite declnion In regard
to the armistice has been reached It
will Immediately be made public by the
Interest In the premature report that
Uio armistice had been signed and that
hostilities had ceaeed was confined to
day to attempting to ascertain how the
frrrfstake wan made. Investigation by
tfcB Navy Department of the statement
rlliat Admiral Wilson, commanding the
American naval forces at Brest, bad
,been sponsor for the report showed that
Admiral Wilson had heard It in Brest
and repeated it. but without Apparently
believing that It was to be made the
basis of a flat definite assertion that the
war was over.

The Navy Department was chiefly In
terested In tho report that Admlraj
Henry 'B. Wilson had authorized the
offending cablegram. Admiral Wilson's
i reply to a query from the Secretary of

Press version. He said that he had
merely repented a report that he had

the source of Admiral Wilson's Informa

Machine Runs Into Crowd at
Olyphant, Pa.
ScnANTON, P Nov. 8. Two children
'were killed and three other persons were
Injured at Olynhant, near here, to-day
when a large De Havlland bombing air
plan ran Into a crowd that had gathered
to see Jt' tly. That more persons were
not Injured was duo to Lieut. Zelamcr,
pilot of the machine, who wrecked It
to prevent sweeping the crowd.
The machine was one of tho squadron
6f five that left Garden City, L. I.,
early to-day to make flights In this
dty. The pilot failed to looaie the land.
Ing place owing to the hasy atmosphere
sand descended In Olyphant. It was
while attempting to tako the air again
that the accident hunpened, the crowd
gathering too close to the machine as
It started.

Cable Telling .of Non-confirmation
Delayed, Says Press
The official source, In France, of
Thursday's premature peace report was
revealed yesterday by Hear Admiral
Henry B. Wilson, In command of. United
States naval forces In French 'waters.
He absolved the United Press and ap
parently offered to shoulder tho blame
himself. I
His statement was made at Brest,
"for tho Information of United Press
editors." He said :
"The statement of tho United Press
relative to the signing of the armistice
was made publlo from my omco on-the
basis of what appeared to be official
and authoritative Information. I am
In a position to know that the United
Press and its representatives acted In
perfect good faith nnd that the prema
ture announcement was the result of sin
error for which the agency was In luA
vilse responsible."
From tho ofTlces of tho United Press.
Whence bad Issued the colossal. If well
Intentloned, 'mistake that threw the na
tion Into a frenr.y of Joy for a few wild
hours, came the following explanation
yesterday noon:
'Yesterday's announcement of the
signing of the armistice between Ger
many and the Allies was made by Ad
miral Wilson at Brest and was filed to
tho United Press with tho Admiral's
approval. This Information was re
ceived by the United Press In a cable
gram from Roy W. Howard shortly bo-
foro noon to-day.
IIott the "News" Was Sent.
"Practically at the same time nnother
meisage from Howaid was delivered to
the United Press statins that Admiral
Wilson made the announcement In Brest
at 4 P. M French time, but that later
he was notified that It was not conflrm
ab'.e. This later message filed by How
ard did not show In the form In which
it was delivered whether It was tent
yesterday or how long it had been
held up.
Howard cablegram clearly showed
that Admiral Wilson acted In good faith,
slating that re supposed the announce
ment was off.slal. and therefore gave
his approval to the filing of the message
to the United Press In New York.
"The United Press to-dny asked the
Oovernment to ascertain how long How
ard's messages stating that Admiral
Wilson authorlred the announcement
and also that he latr was notified that
It was uneonflrmable were held up by
the censors.
"There was reason to believe thnt tho
message statins- that the iidwn w.-ix mm.
conflrmaftle was badly delayed, In view
of the fact that It was not received here
until almost twenty-four hours after the
Original cablegram."
Howard s cables, which the Fnlted
Press says It thinks the censorshln must
havo delayed almost twenty-four hour..
were given out. me. first reads :

Chapter 1 of the Revised Statutes
of 1918 as adopted by the
AN ACT. To provide revenue for the welfare of the boys in camp and
on the battle line.
SECTION 1. EACH and every corporation doing business in Greater
New York shall impose upon itself, during the week of Nov. 11th to 18th,
a voluntary tax of not less than l4' of 1 on its outstanding capital stock
and shall pay the same to the UNJTED WAR WORK CAMPAIGN, INC.,
in four equal installments beginning on the first of December, 1918, and on
the first of each of the three following months.
SECTION 2. EACH and every firm doing business in Greater New York
shall impose upon itself, during the aforesaid week, a voluntary tax of not
less than 2-c of its net, profits, and shall pay the same in accordance with
the provisions of the preceding section.
SECTION 3. EACH and every employee of the corporations and firms
specified in the foregoing paragraphs (except the higher salaried officers and
firm members, who are expected to make sur-gifts) shall impose upon them
selves a voluntary tax of One Full Day's Pay, and shall pay the same in ac
cordance with the provisions of the foregoing Section 1.
This system of "Voluntary Taxation" has been devised to give recognition
to the principle that there should be EQUALITY in GIFTS, just as there
should be EQUALITY in TAXATION. Business men and their employees
are constantly asking when solicited for funds to support the Great War
Agencies "What is my share? What is the other fellow giving?" The
answer is: "The Industries Division of the UNITED WAR WORK CAM
PAIGN suggests a uniform basis of giving as outlined above. It is a ready-to-hand
measuring rod which will spread the load evenly and without undue
burden on anyone. Special circumstances may make it necessary for some
to give less. In many instances, some will give more. We have already
been informed by a number of corporations - including some of the largest and
some of the smallest - that they have decided to make gifts in excess of the
suggested uniform basis. We have also been informed that there will be
many employees who will give more tlan one full day's pay. The decision
in every instance rests on the consciences of theJ business men and their em
ployees. The Campaign managers can only indicate a uniform basis which"
must be averaged in order to produce the amount needed."
PEACE is coming. The right kind of peace, too, from a military and
political standpoint; but the complete r-uits of the right kind of peace will
not be gathered until, and unless, our boys are sustained through the long
months of demobilization so that they come back to their homes and to their
industries KEEN, FIT and CLEAN.

that features of the messages show that

second with Its reference to a "night

Later yesterday the 'United Press of

nothing to Its explanation and would
not, attempt to explain how Admiral
Wilson could have-been misled. Talk
was heard along Park Row of tho pos
slbllltyof the American warships having
picked up a lie sent broadcast by the
Nouen wtreleat In Germany, But thlB
was pure guessing.
Last month Rear Admiral Wilson re
spectfully nnd tactfully refused' a cross
of tho lesion of Honor offered him In
August by President Polncnre. He felt
that tho work ho was doing In France
did not qualify him for tho decoration,
as the United States Government's stand
