There should be no doubt In any mind. "The President ought to Insist that Germany's reply to his note thould be positive and unequivocal nnd that there ought to be no room for negotiations or compromise.

Column Tlirte LONDON PRESS SEES TRICKERY Germany Asks for Truce to Avoid Disaster, Says the Post MUST LAY DOWN ARMS By the Associated Press l.mnlnn, Oct, 14. No temporary armistice, nor any armlstlco at all, unless accompanied by German 's unconditional surrender. Is the dominant note In most of the com ment on the peaeo situation In thH morning's newspapers. "The Allies will take nothing ttss than unconditional surrender in the field nnd there must bo no armistice until defeat In the field Is acknowledged by the enemy," sas the Post. "Otherwise the war has been fought In vain." I The paper sees in ejermn iy'E endeavor to open peace negotiations merely n attempt to nvold disaster and save her military reputation nnd adds: "it Is not the first time that tho Ger mans have erroneously assumed that President Vllson does not understand the people with whom ho Is dealing. But President 'llson knows the enemy as well as do the Allies. Germany's Idea In this dlscuaslqn Is to steal the ad vantage. Her design Is to lint create dissension between the United State i and the Allies If Doctor Solf. with a shim democracy, can get the Allies and Amer ica to talking he will h ve achieved the purpose for which ho and Prince Max were appointed." Klillrulra holf'a Haply Ridiculing the Idea that the German Government la speaking for the people, the Post continues: "Assurance on this point from the German Government Itself Is obviously without value to President Wilson. If he were to accept It, he would be go ing back upon all he has said about the German Government, so vie do not see how he can nccept It," The Chronicle believes that 'IIson may wish some or all of Germany's answers to be made moie specific, es pecially that regarding the authority of i irnce Maximilian's Government As earning that he will be satisfied as to this point, the paper contends that no peace discussion Is possible without a final cessation of fighting. Under the caption "Temporary Armistice Inadmts. Bible." the paper says: "'e must Insist upon such terms as will virtually disarm tho Central row ers. We cannot cpntemplate Germany withdrawing her armies Inta'ct, reconsti tuting them on shorter lines and then rattling the sword again nt the peace conference. It must be remembered that the conference will last a long time, at least six months, and possibly a ear; fighting must be finished once and for all, and the Allies must be unmistakably secured against Us renewal.
