Germany's reply to President Wil son, according to an Amsterdam dis patch to the Express today, quoting "authorltatlvo sources," will bo as fol lows: ' Germany will evacuate Helium and France, providing peace nego tiations start In a neutral country before the evacuation is completed and providing the Allies will give their assurance that (Irrman terri tory.

A dispatch from Herlln received here by way of Copenhagen says the Ger man reply was drafted after a confer ence of Chancellor Maximilian, Vice Chancellor von Tayer and tho minis ters and military representatives of tho Government. Following the agreement upon the draft, the Knlser, according to advices from Cologne, summoned to Berlin the sovereigns of all tho German Federal States for a consultation tomorrow be-, fore transmitting tho reply. This pro cedure is unique in tho history of Ger many. A dispatch from Amsterdam says the semtofllcial WollT Bureau has mado public tho President's note with tho following comment: Tho olllclul text of the reply Is still awaited, but the reply shows that further declarations from the German Government aro necessary. To that end careful consideration by the Gov- . ernment Js necessary.
