'' "Immediately after having taken direction of the ministry of foreign affairs and after the dispatch of the official answer to your note of October 18. 1918, by which you were able to see that we accept all the points and principles laid down by Presi dent Wilson in his various declarations and are in complete accord with the efforts of Presi dent Wilson to prevent future wars and to create a league of nations, we have taken prep aratory measures in order that Austrians and Hungarians may be able, according to their own desire and without being in any way hindered, to make a de cision as to their future organ ization and to rule it. "Since the accession to power of Emperor King Charles his immovable purpose has been to bring an end to the war. More than ever this is the desire to the sovereign of all the Austro Hungarian peoples, who ac knowledged that their future destiny ran only be accomplish ed in a pacific world, by being freed from all disturbances, privations, and sorrows of war. "This is why I address you directly, Mr. Secretary of State, praying that you will have the goodness to intervene with the President of the United States in order that in the interest of humanity, as in the interest of all those who live in Austria Hungary, an immediate armis tice may be concluded on all fronts, and for an overture that immediately negotiations for peace will follow." KAISER READY TO E ABDIAT RT (Continued from First Page.) a last-minute effort to persuade the President that the Kaisers powers had been effectually shorn and that armistice dealings would, in reality, be with the German people not the Hohenzollerns.

The immediate and unconditional release of all prisoners of war In enemy countries, will be one of the allies armistice terms, according to Sir George Cave, British home secretary. In an ad dress before the House of Commons he declared that he had the best reason for believing that the British government' would Insure this condition. Sir George declared that the. bar. barous treatment of British prisoners of war is -atlll going on today in some of the German camps. Since November, 1916. he declared, 2.000 prisoners of all allied nations bad died in enemy camps. in case Germany does not reply favorably to the allied demands Sir George asserted "we would be en titled to take reprisals (on German prisoners) within certain duly pre scribed limits." render of Austria-Hungary, it is un derstood, and the complete evacuation by military and political forces of the HapiburK regime of all Czecho slovak, Polish, Jugo-Slar, and Italian territories. Representatives of the oppressed nationalities were of the opinion, that this last demand meant the relinquish ment by Vienna of control over ap proximately 70 per cent of the present boundaries or .the dual monarchy. That Vienna already has made proposals to the cxecno-siovak na tionals at Prague for conveyance to the national council' here was Indi cated in an interview at Gen eva between Deputy Kramarez, leader of the Czecho-SIovak move ment within Bohemia and Moravia, and Czech Foreign Minister Benes, now representative of the council at Paris.

This wise mother knows that the best and safest way to relieve a bilious, sick or constipated child is by giving candy Cascarets at the first sign of a white tongue, a feverish breath or a. sour stomach. Children love Cascarets because of the candy taste. Nothing else "works" the nasty bile, sour fermentations and poisons from the little liver and bowels so gently yet so thoroughly. Each 10 cent box of Cascarets has directions for children aged one year old and upwards. JOINT COUNCIL AGREES ON TERMS VERSAILLES, Oct. 30. It was an ticipated today that the armistice terms to Germany will be similar to thoso offered Bulgaria, although ex tra precautions will be necessary and there may be some harsher clauses. The Interallied conference Is under stood to have already agreed on the main political points of the armistice. The terms must be severe. It was agreed In authoritative circles, be cause Germany began the war, me renewal of which must be Impossible. CoL E. M. House, representing the United States, has called on President Poincare and conferred with other French leaders. He also has received Greek Premier Venlzelos and the Greek minister to France. House has moved from the hotel where he first stopped, and i.ow Is occupying a residence on the left bank of the Seine, loaned by a friend, and located in the old aristocratic quarter near the house General Persh Ing lives In when he Is In Paris. United States Signal Corps men are Installing telephones In the building, and Parisians remark that an air of permanency surrounds Colonel House's establishment there. Few eblleve the lnteralled confer ence will last more than one week Clnce the allies already have reached an agreement, little remains to be done except the. drawing up of the conference's verdict in official form for the representatives' signatures. LONDON EXPECTS BERLIN TO ACCEPT LONDON, Oct. 30. The terms npon which Germany can have an armistice and also peace probably will .be made known very soon. The terms have been agreed upon by the Versailles inter-allied war council. It was learned here today. . . The peace and armistice terms will be Issued simultaneously. The- peace conditions. It is understoodwill he President Wilson's fourteen -points In a little different form. The word ing will be slightly adjusted so as to embody new conditions which have arisen within the last year. London believes Germany undoubt edly will accept both the armistice and peace terms. It Is known that Germany- really has been trying to stop the operations of her U-boats. Austria is expected to accept quick ly any terms that are offered her. The fact that the Czecho-Slavs and the Jugo-Slavs control Austria's food supply nas piayea a largo parx in forcing the capitulation of Germany's chief ally. confirmation, lit nas gained wide cir culation during recent days. There la nothing to prevent the President's going. The Constitution makes nd stipulations on the point. Precedent alone has guided the ac tion of previous Executives and it is notable that President Wilson has broken many precedents. Owing to his high position, it was remarked in embassy- circles that the President, If he went to the con ference, probably would be mads chairman of the neaee Catherine-.. Should he go, 'the Constitution pro vides that during the period of his absence the Vice President would di rect the executive work of the 'White House. It would be the first time in the history bt the nation that a Presi dent had visited Europe If the con ference is held there whUe in office. Colonel Roosevelt, however, went to Panama while President. The rumors have found particular sympathy among diplomats of the smaller countries here who enthu siastically have applauded his course toward Austria and his expressions on the rights of small nations. Incidentally, this tivw gossip add ed xest to discussion here because of the President's ?TcnoVh, conviction that the doors of thr-Beace conclave should be swung vU to the public and all covenants should be arrived at openly. ALL CROATIA HELD BY REVOLUTIONISTS LONDON, Oct. 30 Revolutionaries now control all of Croatia, accord lng to the Zurich correspondent of the Post.

It was learned authentically today that this absolute military precau tion will be demanded to prevent any possible perfidy by Austria. The Czecho-SIovak National Council will Insist, upon unconditional sur- ALLIED COUNCIL TO STICK TO 14 POINTS The Versailles conference will agree- to adhere to President Wilson's fourteen basic peace points. This was stated In authoritative American official and entente diplo matic quarters today. As a corollary to this basic acceptance, the question of an armistice Has been given over to the military advisers. These armistice terms are expected during the forthcoming week. Any differences as to application of the President's fourteen points will be threshed out In the final peace ad justment, it was said.. It was emphasized that the Ver sailles conference will close with a completely united diplomatic front. It was said there will be prompt conclusion of the Important negotia tions at Versailles, as the conferees there are now evidently In full ac cord on the general underlying prin ciples of peace and armistice terms. The armistice terms probably already have been submitted formally to the military advisers for final formula tion. Their slate was practically written In advance, and the terms thereof are as outlined before. However, one point still remains obscure here, namely, the extent to which the naval demands will go. The original ticket was that Ger many would have to clve up her sub marine fleet and permit occupation of her grand fleet pending the outcome or the flnal.peace negotiations. British pressure may have altered that, for press dispatches from aoroaa now suggest that surrender of not only the U-boats but the grand neet wm be required. PRESIDENT MAY SIT IN CONFAB ON PEACE Congressional and dlplomatlo quar tera here today were mulling over a new bit of gossip, namely, that Presi dent Wilson may attend the great peace conference when It Is held.
