liOiidon, Oct. 14.
Ono of the most significant points
in Ocrmnny's reply to President
Wilson Is that It Is the first Im
portant (Icrrnnn diplomatic com
munication since the Herman em
pire was proclaimed at Versailles
fn 1871 which has not spokcp In
the name of the Imperial Clcrman
CIo eminent.
"The Herman Go eminent" Is nit
absolutely new phrase, and the
omission of the word "Imperial" Is
unprecedented. Whether that tin huh
latcrlng to President Wilson's
lews or whether It means change
In (lermnny remains to ho seen.

All the papers lay particular stress
on the fact that the military command
Is discussing the sltuntlon with the min

un Wilson's fourteen points velll not be

It Is nothing to he ashamed of, the p iper

every effort to make them go on talking
The press Is making "Wilson's basis"
more and more elastic all the time.
Note Without Hatred
The trend Is obvious from statements
made In the Vienna papers. These papers
lay stress on the epiestlon of evacua

"The note from Wilson Is of no small
Importance for peace. It Is void of
that hatred which might Insutt, even
