The vutois Lould hae -u;;geted
howiei tenns. They could have held
out, aflei the theatrical fashion which
Ueiinany was wont to follow, fo occupa
tion of capital cities, for dictation in
loyal palaces and foi arious other
manifestations of empty pomposity. I.ul
Dias's teims aie concentrated not on

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

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.

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

transpoit for the Entente armies
throughout Austiia-Ilungaiy, not only is
the door Xa the East barred with steel,
