TUESDAY. OCTOBER 29. 1918.
The Central Powers Splitting..
Germany reples to the United States: "The German govern
ment now awaits proposals for an armistice, which shall be the first
step toward a just peace, as the President has described in his proc
lamation."
Austria-Hungary replies: "The government of Austria-Hungary
declares that it is ready without awaiting the result of other negotia
tions to enter into discussions to conclude peace between Austria
Hungary and the opposing states and an immediate armistice on all
Austro-Hungarian fronts, and begs President Wilson to be good
enough to take the appropriate preparatory steps."
r These are the latest peace developments. They do not guar
antee an actual conclusion of peace, but they seem to indicate an
end of hostilities in the very near future.
Can we believe that the enemy is sincere? again is the uppermost
question. We have had so much of the enemy's insincerity and
craftiness that we are wont to accept everything he does as crooked.
But we have come to a point where the enemy's notes breathe de
feat if nothing else. It is an inevitable defeat which the enemy him
self realizes and because of which he is desperately trying to save as
much of himself as he can.
Are we to believe that Germany and Austria-Hungary are mak
ing peace appeals independently, or that they are working in con
junction 5
There is the greatest possibility that, while the central powers
may have been in consultation at the beginning of the peace offensive,
these nations have gradually drifted to a breaking point. There is
every evidence that Austria-Hungary means to have peace just as
sopn as the "appropriate preparatory steps" can be completed. She
Lscems to be striving to attain this peace, at any price perhaps, with
"lsut regard as to the course of her ally.
Austria-Hiingary is in quite a different position than she was a
ago. She has slowly but surely been throwing off her yoke
* a xassal state to Germany. There was a time not so many months
a?o thai Austria-Hungary acted as Germany spoke. One issue after
^he other tended to widen the breach between the two nations. Then
came the question of (he employment of Austria-Hungary's soldiers.
Germany needed them badly on the Western front, yet Germany had
repeatedly refused to give military aid to her ally when she was
hard pressed. Then there was the controversy over food. Germany
;was going to feed her own people first. One dissension followed
the other in rapid succession between the central allies until Austria
Hungary has no doubt tired of the oppression of Germany. She has
come to ignore her dictator, and Germany has made few recent at
tempts to dictate.
\ustria-Hungary must have come lo realize that she no longer
has a friend in Germany, that she stands alone, that she is threat
ened with revolution from within and aggression from without her
borders. Austria-Hungary no doubt is defeated and she knows it,
and her best course is unconditional surrender, which her last note
.strongly implies.
ft Germany, apparently, is in no belter way. She lelt the iron hand
fcver her ally was slipping (or some time. She knows that she will
soon stand alone against the whole world, and that with her ally
Hone her speedy end is inevitable.
c Both the notes from Germany and Austria-Hungary show the
strongest desire for an immediate peace. They know our terms un
conditional surrender.
Regarding the enemy's request for an armistice, news was cabled
from London last night that the allied terms of armistice- had been
arranged. The world awaits these terms, and the eyes of the world
are turned toward \ ersailles today, where the supreme war council
01 the allies is to meet to consider the momentous events of the hour.
We may have peace within the month. It may not come for
the ne*t year. But this we do know?that we are drawing nearer
peace day by day, and that when it docs come it will mean that the
enemy has surrendered unconditionally.
Lift the Influenza Ban.
It's about lime for the District government to gi\e some se
?feus consideration to the lifting of the ban caused by the influenza
^Bden'n So iar as Washington is concerned there seems to be
Hiple . Vidence ot the tact that the plague is on the decrease.
? Already Boston, Philadelphia and a number of other citics have
llted the ban and in these cities the decrease is no more evident
Chan in Washit .ton.
Those who are vitally affected by the closing order have ac
cepted without complaint the edict laid down, but now that the
.-course is 011 the wane they should be given every consideration.
1 The theatrical industry has almost been wrecked by the enforced
rlcsink'. \rt they have borne it admirably. 1 f, however, the condi
tion continues much longer they will be ruined. Thousands of em
ployes are being denied a livelihood or forced to seek other posi
tion-. This will offer another problem when the ban is finally
Sifted.
I The churches, too, should be allowed to open at once. There
[is a constitutional right of religious liberty which, though the cir
Ecumstances may have been sufficient for the action, is being violated
if the ban continues one minute longer than is necessary.
There is an argument, too, in favor of opening which is to the
'advantage of just such a thing as has been prescribed for influenza.
:A good many people are not getting the fresh air necessary to fight
the plague, because there is no place to go. Every time a person
ttoes to church or to the theater they get just that much fresh air.
:lt is reasonable to suppose that without a definite destination more
heople remain indoors.
This editorial is no criticism of the authorities, but rather a
reminder of the gravity of their power. We believe that the ban
kould be lifted at once, and at the same time be consistent.
General Rumor is the only outsider having free access to the
floor of the stock exchange.

One week from today the appeal
of the President will be passed upon
by the people of the country. They
will act upon'It as a Jury acts upon
a case submitted to them.
They have a chance to*condemn
the President by making both the
| House and the Senate, or either of
! them, Republican. Or they have the
| chance to vindicate and support him,
j by their vote selecting Democrats
to dominate both branches.
In view of the fact the President
has made an appeal, a victory for
the Republicans would be directly a
repudiation of the President. He
has said it would, and the country
will certainly select the Congres
sional make-up this year on that
basis.
On the other hand an election of
more Democrats than Republicans
will be a direct victory for the Pres
ident. a thorough indorsement of his
administration of the war and his
steps toward peace.
Further than that a Republican
For it takes a two-thirds' vote of
very clear?would mean Joy to Ber
lin and doubt and indecision to both
Paris and London. While a Demo
cratic victory?he has also made
plain?would convince Berlin that
America stands behind her leader
and would encourage both London
and Paris to continue to follow the
leadership which he has assumed in
carrying on affairs for the allies.
Action of the voters at the polls,
however, will not make it possible
for the Democrats to have domina
tion of treaty ratifications.
victory?so the President makes
i the Senate to ratify treaties, and
none of the Democrats believe that
so many of their party candidates
will be elected as to insure such a
strong control of the Upper House.
i Therefore, no matter what the
outcome of the Senatorial elections
both parties will have to support
J the peace treaties in order to get
! them through. There can be no
, other result. Therefore, in the in
| tel-ests of the country itself it be
hooves cool, conservative men of
(judgment to keep their wits about
jthem and not to make it impossible
I to complete our work once we have
j gotten It under headway?after the
I Germans have surrendered.
Partisanship should not dim or
I distort the vision which men must
I have about them when the treaties
come up for action. Neither party
can claim entire credit for their
ratification, both parties must make
the claim and both parties must be
prepared to go into the affair with
thoughts of America rather than
party on their minds.
Do any of you know "Snake" King
|of Texas?
Well, "Snake' is a character. He
gets his name from the occupation
he follows?the collection and sale
of various kinds of reptiles to shows
and museums and the like.
"Snake" was in town the other
day. And while here he dely^red
himself of a long statement the
Mexican situation.
"The Mexicans are beginning to
see some light in their affairs" said
he. "Though its been a long time
trickling through to 'um. They've
been so notoriously pro-German that
they couldn't see America in this
fight. Now that they've heard what
our boys have been doing on the
Western front they're suddenly mak
ing up to the fact that they can
fight.
'Why. the Mexicans thought Black
Jack Pershing was a four-flusher
and the men who followed him int<?
their country were only army sa
siety stunters out on a lark?fel
lows who didn't know what they
were going after and who wouldn't
have got it if they had known. But
its all changed now. The Mexicans
who listened to German talk to
that effect are beginning to see that
somebody lied. And some of the
Germans who did# the lying would
not find it healthy to be around
with some of their former Mexican
i audiences, let me tell you.
"At that, however, there's lots to
?do in Mexico. We've got to watch
I ourselves there. The Mexicans still
' think after we've attended to the
big' job overseas we would be con
1 tent to come home and not to pay
any attention to them if they got
rantankerous. The truth is. there
are bandits and the like but they're
in bands that keep making trouble
for us and some of these days
we've got to go in there and nail
these bandits to trees for the good
of the people of Mexico.
"And. the State of Jexas is ready
to do her part, believe me. All
Unele Sam needs to do Is to say the
word and he'll have our folks be
hind him tooth and toenail."
"This is "Snake's" idea and he's
lived in and around the part of the
country he speaks about and he
claims to know whereof he speaks.
Carranza's army, we might add to
what "Snake" said, is known to have
been heavily officered, at one time
recently, with German officers. Car
ranza had them with him and doubt
less dictating to him when he was
congratulating the Kaiser on his
birthday?incidentally the last birth
day the Damned One may celebrate
with any formality this side of Hades.
But Carranza has not bent his ear
quite so closely to what his German
friends had to say during the past
few weeks, we have been informed.
He's really more interested in the
United States than he was. (The
news from the other side had had a
wonderfully good effect upon him so
far as restoration of reason is con
cerned.) And if Carranza continues
to improve as a result of tonic ad
ministered to him abroad, to the Ger
mans* it may be that in time he will
really be worth while from the
standpoint of our nation.
There are men who insist, Carranza
is at heart Just the sort of person to
have over the Mexicans?that is. that
his efforts with them are likely to
bear more fruit for Uncle Sam than
as if almost any other of the so-call
ed prominent leaders was in the high
seat. We have yet to be convinced
on this point, although we are not
certain that any of the leaders would
just exactly suit our tastes in this
respect. ?
One thing can be put down with re
spect to Mexico, however, the inhab
itants there who are keeping at all
informed on the progress of the war
have a deal more respect for the U.
S. A. than they have had at any time
. during the past four years. And we
| reason from this that their respect
| Vill continue to increase because
I when this war is over they'll have to
: admit Uncle Sam was the boy who
j came into the equation at a time
j when he was able to save the world
| from Germany.
And such a powerful fellow as your
Uncle Samuel has become. therefore,
is not apt to have much trouble with
the Mexicans?not if the Mexicans
know themselves.

In City of Brewers.
Hearst Editor Purchases Two Milwaukee
Papers.
From the New York Tribun?.
Milwaukee. Oct. 1*6.?Arthur Brisbane.
William Randolph Hearst'# star edi
tor, champion of "light wines and
beers" and baiter of America's allies,
j h is opened a vigorous campaign for a
1 dominant position in the newspaper
. field in Milwaukee.
With the country still ringing with
j the scandal of the exposure of the
' brewers' backing which enabled him'
! Jo buy "The Washington Times." he
| has begun operations in the city from
which came J115.0W of the brewers'
1 money that he used.
With the funds that he borrowed to
start the Washington enterprise still
unrepaid. he hag launched into new
and costly ventures in what has been
known as one of the most German
I cities of the 1'nited States, the home
t of the S(hlitz. Pabst ajid a do*en other
breweries.
He has bought "The Evening Wis
1 consin" and "The Daily News.'* An
, nouncement of his purchase of the
| morning "Free Press" is expected at
( any time, and he has an interest in
j the Socialist "Leader."
Milwaukee is asking whether Bris
bane is using his own money here any
; more than he aid in Washington.
; There have been rumors here for
i more than a year that there would
be established, as part of a chain to
extend across the nation, a paper
I that should speak both for the brew
( ing interest and for the interests of
the Fatherland, which so many Mil
waukee citizens championed fcpenlv
j before we entered the war.
Prepare for After War.
It has been understood that these
i papers would not openly defend Ger
many. even after peace should have
1 made it legally safe to do so. but that
j they would oppose any after-the-wai
policies that might cause "hatred" in
I Germany as dangerous to permanent
j peace, would uphold German methods
and policies < Kultur under another
r.aine) as vital to American develop
ment. and would attempt to create
distrust of Britain. France. Japan and
any anti-Gerir?an government which
I might be established in Russia.
In short, these papers, here and
J elsewhere, would have a double mis
? sion: to make a last-ditch fight for the
' beer, which the pro-Germans declare
! is necessary for the continued vital
1 ity of Deutschthum. and attempt to
I detach America from the world alli
j ance against German aggression,
( which will, if unbroken, constitute
the greatest barrier to German finan
} rial recuperation in preparation for
i another bid for world power.
! These were rumors, current more
j than a year ago and persistent since.
| From the first the name of Hearst has
i bfen connected with them.
? Milwaukee is a logical place for the
| location of om> of such a string of
j papers. It has a large German ele
! nrent. which through long residence
and intrenched financial and paliti
? cal power wields n tremendous influ
{ ence. Not all of this element is pro
i German as against America, but most
j of it is as against the rest of the
J world, and would willingly be con
| vinced that American and German
j interests agreed, or even more wil
lingly that policies of our allies,
I which are contrary to German wishes.
;are either wrong or "un-American."
OPHELIA'S. SLATE.
1 In the background are a few thick
' and thin /)ro-Gernu.ns. the unregener
ate remnants of the German-Ameri
can Alliance, the Embargo Confer
ence and other German agencies.
Sure Support from Teuton*.
This Teutonic element provides a
?ure support for a paper such as has
been described, a support fulfilling the
conditions of Alexander Konta's let
ter to Dernburg when he wrote:
"In ordinary circumstances a loss ?
would have to be provided |
for. but I believe that owing to my j
connections with certain interests in !
this country, this could bo greatly j
reduced, if not wiped out altogether. ?
from the very first by a plan which '
has for a long time turned my atten- 1
tlon to newspaper management.
"Prohibition is seriously occupying .
the minds of the brewers and dis- 1
tillers of this country. It is not a
question of temperance, which they
j advocate, but the ac'ual prohibition
by ' law of the sale of beers, wines
j and liquors.
j "A paper that would not ho hostile
j to the personal liberty of the citizen
; who drinks in moderation what he
j pleases coul,| count on the powerful
j support of the brewers and distillers.
I' who command almost illimitable
capital, and. what is moro, means
of giving the paper in question a cir
| culation large enough to attract ad
| vertisers. Add to this a discreet ap
j peal to every German society . . .
This, to he sure, would be a circula
tion among Germans and German
Americans, whereas what is wanted i*
native readers, but if this circulation
is built up discreetly, a.s I suggest, the
men in the street will be Impressed
I by numbers. A large circulation,
j widely advertised, would impress the
j native American and make him take
' the paper. And meanwhile A deficit
, would be changed into a profit to be
i used for further propaganda. The in
terests to which I refer have repeat
1 edly consulted me on this very sub
I ject of a newspaper* not hostile to
| their industry, and I know they would
j be more than ready to give their
support to the plan now in hand.'*
Brewers In \red of Aid.
The need of the brewers for support
of any kind they can get is obvious.
But in Milwaukee the Teutonic ele
ment also is in serious need of rein
forcement. for Deutschthum in Mil
waukee is slipping. 1,*d bv "The Mil
waukee Journal." one of the bitterest
fights against hyphen ism made any
where in the country has been
fought out in Milwaukee, and the
result is seen in a changed attitude
in the street. There is no longer the
almost apologetic attitude on the part
of pro-Americans which was notable
even a year aeo. Instead, there is a
strong and militant Americanism ap
parent. and it Is the pro-German who
is skulking, while his sympathizers
speak in whispers. This is illustrated
to give a sinele instance, in the pub
lic school, where what amounted to
a requirement that every pupil should
study German has been dropped, and
| as a result there were ln September
j of this year 1.391 pupils, out of 44.479
J in the German classes, while in June
| m:. there were 42.389 out of K.56L
I The number of teachers of German
has dropped from 127 to 8.
Into this situation has come Bris
bane. The announcements of his pur
chase of the two papers comes at a
time when peace rumors are thick
in the air. and optimists or those
with private advice from Berlin
might fairly believe that the time
was near when peace would make
It no longer legally disloyel to advo
cate the German cause.
Brisbane?Hearnt*s Man.
Brisbane was the bright particular
star of William Randolph Hearst's
editorial staff when, before we en
tered the war, Hearst's papers were
attacking the allies, defending Gcr
many, urging submission to the II
j boat outrages and defending German
j barbarities
Brisbane was still the bright par
ticular star of William Randolph
Hearst s editorial staff when, after
we entered the war. the Hearst pa
pers were attacking our allies, nrjo -
ing the sending abroad of men. money
lor food, and defending or prsfsing
Germany. *
Brisbane is the editor of "The
*N ashtngtoo Times." which has at
t w Ji ?Ur opposed the sending
abroad of men. money or food, and
defended and praised. Germany.
