W. Uillllull UUul LUI J liLUIULIil I HnlTllliU MR M REPLY LONDON, Oct. 14. The British press regards the German answer to President Wilson's note with deep suspicion. "The whole German note is bogus," said the Daily Mall today. "The Germans have not yet set their house In order. They have not yet behead ed their King as the English did In 1640 and the French did In 1793. An armistice would cheat the allies of their present military supremacy. There Is no need for a mixed com mission for Germany to evacuate: only an order from the Kaiser Is re quired." The Post took the attitude that the German note was designed to create discord among the allies. "Germany must surrender and leave In the evacuated territory all of the arms of Iter troops." said the Express, adding: "If Germany's overtures are genuine, we have won the war." Wonld Be Defrayal. The London Observer says: "By Itself a suspension of hostili ties granted to Germany at this time would be a betrayal of the allied armies and of our cause. Germany would have used President Wilson to baffle Marshal Foch. There could be no armistice except accompanied by such euarantees as would make it 1 impossible for tha enemy to renew the struggle. The allies' complete victory In arms would have to be acknowledged and the consequences forthwith accepted." Reynolds' Newspaper says: "The power of Germany Is still in the hands of the Kaiser and the junkers, though, we believe, that power Is tottering. So long as" they stand In their places, we are bound to take them as representing the Ger man people, and until the German people cast them down for good, the allies will continue to use all the force they possess to secure victory so complete and overwhelming that these men shall be broken and dis graced, and go with the mark oT Cain upon their brows. Then, and not un til then, will there be a German people with whom we can treat. 'No peace with the Hohenzoilerns Is the motto of the allies." DEBTOR WEDS LANDLADY CHICAGO. Oct. 14. Nick.

They sa'd that any unofficial intimation of an nouncement might very seriously complicate a situation that was fraught with the most serious pos sibilities. "The American people must wait in patience until an announcement . can be made," explained one of the Cabinet members. "They can trust the President to take steps to meet the situation as he has met all that have developed to date." And that was all that could be learned anywhere In official quar ters. The President was examining ail of the angles of the German re ply, and until he had spoken officially, the country was asked to trust him and refrain from guess ing. Demand Surrender. Meanwhile an almost unanimous demand that he tell Germany that her hour to secure peace on any other terms but unconditional surrender was In evidence throughout the Capi tal. Senators of both political faiths led In this demand. They declared that it would be the height of folly for the United Sta ys or the allies to trust Germany at the present time. They recalled the rjany Instances of broken covenants wnlch have marked the progress of the war. And theV declared that they would oppose any mercy at this time. The complete collapse of th"e German military ma chine is In sight, these leaders de clared, and they insisted that the only reason why Germany had ac cepted the President'? fourteen arti cles of peace was because the mili tary leaders realized this. Details of Decree. There was a well-defined report In diplomatic circles that the Swiss charge had two communications from Germany. The second one was re ported to be details of the secret decree which was signed by the Kaiser on September SO, and which has never been made public. There has been a great deal of guessing re garding this decree, but no official in formation has reached Washington. One surmise by a leading ambassa dor, made unofficially, however, was that this decree transferred the power to make war or peace from the Em peror to the Reichstag. At the Swisj legation the officials refused to dis cuss this report In any way. They explained that they had been instruct ed to deliver the German reply ofi Saturday to the President and await developments, and that this was whatj tllc wuuiu uu.

C. tlons of Germans will remember and curse the Insane ambition that so nearly destroyed the clvllljat'on of the world." said Senator Cummins. Republican, of lata. He laid down these conditions of peace upon which, he said, the allies must Insist: 1. That the German army be dis armed and disbanded; 2. That the German navy be dis tributed among her enemies; 3. That her fortifications te dis mantled; 4. That her munitions factories be destroyed. Unconditional Snrrender. "Unconditional surrender," will be the answer of the American people to Germany's peace "feelers," de clared Senator McCumber, of North Dakota. Ho said that Great Brltailnl and Prance have again and again "de clared that, inasmuch as Germany has made this unprovoked war, was wholly responsible for It, has been the cause of all the deaths result ing from It, all the misery and suf fering, she should not and would not be allowed to escape by a mere res toration of territory she had Invaded " "I ask the American people, ought we not to demand and Insist upon reparatoln Is not the insistence by us of such a demand a solemn duty which we owe to our allies" CHAMBERLAIN SEES TRICK Declaring that he had "no confi dence in Germany or in her prom ises," Senator Chamberlain, chairman of the Senate Military Committee, to day said the German note should be rejected. "Whether Germany's reply amounts to a promise of unconditional surren der or not, I am in doubt, and there should be no doubt in any mind," said Chamberlain. lUlIEMTl I (Continued from I''irt Page.)
