Austiia is tied ns no country vas ever constrained, no, not oven 1 'lance av the moment of Germany's dizziest triumph. The new-born thud lepubiic went thiough the uRony ol wituessint; the IIun"s ainKlorioiiB Kpectactos, but the mcasuie of ho suneudei cannot bo com- paied with that of Austria, since Kranco had so inllnltely le ot potenUallty V y'dj, Thelt. c.xist3 m, loophole for Au- ti Kin intrigue, no opportunity lor con niVame with her deseited ally, no chance but fo' her position to be of bupieme advantage to the Entente and supremely fatal to German. Tlii victors will lonnol Dalm.itia, specified islands of the Adriatic, specified naval tcsseK, all tenltoiy back of a 'lew military frontier, drawn -with the keen est eyo to irpvhpeinhlo strategic advan tage, Irom the Alps to the sen. Rail ways and river courses are theirs, Dan ube foits, the privilege of unlimited lequUtion, half of the army's artillery and equipment, aircraft asumbkd in ordained bases, the naval station of 1'ola and the ab.-olute control and direction of all Austiian commeicc. Such teims may be ujjaided as up plemental to the main demand for tho demobilization of the Austrian army and the evacuation of all occupied foreign tejrttoiy, but they ale what fortifies this primal y condition with a maximum of intensity. The unparalleled ligidity of the I "agi cement" is emphasized in the clause concerning pusoneis. Austiia" is to ic turn all that she bus taken, but without leciprouty. Not een Grant, to all Americans symbolical of "unconditional stu render," gave -o tew piomics of the fruits of peace to the vanquished as has the Italian geneiahssimo. Aut-tii.i wins peace, it is tiue. but within an iron ling of overwhelming power. The peace conference will debate the question of her international role. Until it meets she exists without self sfs&ertiun. All that tho Allies want fiom her they liuve anticipated. All that they want they will take at the most effective mo ment and in tho moat circctie manner.

The withdtawal of Aus trian troop3 from the western front will, of couise, speed on tho already active demolition of morale. Hut theic aie purposes equally pertinent to the vast enterprise of Get man humiliation em bodied in the armistice clauses. Ol prime bigniflcance is tlie enforce ment of a tiuo blockade against Gcr inuny. With the pi ivllege of mobility of transpoit for the Entente armies throughout Austiia-Ilungaiy, not only is the door Xa the East barred with steel, but ull pos-ibllit of lommiinication be tween the defeated ally and the solo bflllgei 'nt Hun u chance which he hoped to capitalize in case bf Austrian defection becomes a. dreamas insub- stnntlnl ns that of submarino icloi or eU'ectlvo Zeppelin U'rraribni.
