President Wilson Himself
Has Issued Appeal
to Buy.
McAdoo Says It Is Public
Duty of Every man to
Aid Drive.
Liberty Day must take Wash
ington over the top in the Fourth
Liberty Loan drive.
Though the city has only a week
in which to subscribe half its
quota, that half must be sub
scribed. The Capital of the United
States must not be the one city
in the country to fail in its duty
to the nation and the world.
The President himself has put
the case squarely before the peo
ple of the city of Washington. The
city must respond for the honor
of Washington.

At 11 o'clock last night the District
loan committee estimated that only

government deportments closed and
all banks open today local loan man
agers were hopeful of pushing the
campaign ahead.

According to official reports receiv

had been subscribed. This was an
increase of only **"**4.*\O0O,0OO over yes

Public meeti:.?a and parades ar
ranged for Liberty Day have been
called off nearly everywhere because
of the influenza epidemic. President
Wilson will participate ln the cele
bration at New York, and Secretary
McAdoo at Chicago.
Commenting on the day's showing,
the Treasury review last nicht said:
"In the face of high official pleas
for united support of the loan and
emphatic declarations that peace talk
! should not cau-ie a slackening of sub
scribing, this result and the outlook
? for the success of the loan is dis
tinctly disappointing."

Hampered by the ban on public
meetings in the District due to in*
tluenza, the local loan committee will
canvass tbe city ln automobiles to
day. More than twenty-live machines
manned with speakers, and buglers
from the navy yard and Marine
barracks will tour the city, appealing
to the people of Washington to rally
in spite of the gloomy outlook.
At noon, laborers working on the
?*vernment dormitories at the I'nion
Station and at Fourteenth and Ohio
avenue will be given the opportunity
to subscribe. A meeting also will be
held at the Army Medical School.

? Worst U-Boat Outrage Since Liner
Was Torpedoed, Press Declares.
London. Oct 11?The British press
describes the torpedoing of the Irish
mail boat Leinster in the St. Oeorges

crime since the sinking of the Lusl

two taking effect. The lntest esti

Twenty-one were killed outright.

Amsterdam, Oct. 11? Austria-Hun
gary bj\A Turkey have officially in
fornavi (rtrmany that they "accept
President WUnon'? terme," according
to report? here tonight.
This, at th? present hour, I* the
latest development in the race
between surrender and the -greatest
military disaster in history.
Since both Austria and Turkey had
previously agreed, like Germany, to
"accept" President Wilson's fourteen
principles "as a basis tor peace nego
tiations/' their latest declaration,
saying flat footed ly that they "acept"
them without any qualifying ?after

tic, means that she t* ready to

Italian territory relinquishing what
ever is left of her military hold on
parts of Poland, Ruavla. and the

As far gg Austria-Hungary's
?armed forces In the Balkans are
cuncei ned, they are in the same
position as Germany's armies ln
Northern France and Belgium. For
them it is not a question of "evac

enough before the Serbo-ltalian ad
vance to escape g debacle.
Turkey'a troops that had occupie-d

being withdrawn post haste for "pur

The note from her remaining: two

declaration: "We quit, no matter
what you do!" comes as direct con
firmation of what was said yester
day, namely, that Austria and Tur
key, smarting; under the American
President's silence toward them
pending; clearness from Germany,
would exert powerful pressure at
Berlin for submission to Mr. Wil
son's demands.
On the other hand, the Austro
Turkish move is expected to facili
tate in no small degree such a
submission by Germany, since It
provides no food for the excuse, al

the German press, "we die of our

heads of all the federal states of the
German empire in answer to a sum

since the historic proclamation of Wil
helm I, as German Emperor, in 1871.
Not the slightest inkling has trickled
through the iron-bound German
frontier so far as to what decision the
Kaiser and his subkings and grand
dukes and dukes are heading for. One
story which still persists is that the
Emperor himself opposes the evacua
tion of all occupied territories, demand
ed by President Wilson. This is not
credited ln well-informed quarters for
the main reason that having said "a"
by offering peace last Saturday on
Wilson's terms as a "basis" the Kaiser
is prepared to say "b."

It is the junction of the main railroad
which ! bave spoken about before
running from Balenciennea through to
Meta and the other great northern
artery called the Liege-Maubeuge
railway. These two roads join at this
point An advance of about nine
miles ln this direction will put that
junction under gunfire, and it is k
point of vital Importance.
"On Tuesday and Wednesday th?
FVench and American forcea attacked
east of the Meuse, and advanced one
and one-half milea on a front of four
miles, clearing the right flank of the
main American advance. Here, as at

Gen. March also pointed out that
the Britiah advancing along the Es

miles from Valenciennes, thus threat
ening the communications of Douai.
In the attacks east of the Meuse
on Tuesday and Wednesday the Brit
ish went forward one and a half
