3elated Attempt to Erect Structure of
Government by the People, Hop
ing Entente Statesmen Will
Treat With It
Washington, Oct. -T—Kven the most
•onservative of military observers
here are rontJne»»d that thp <!»*rrnan
rri,, on France and Belgium has been
lefinitely hroken. Out flanked in Bel
gium anil In the Champagne, the great
Hindenhurg line already was becoming
intenable when the forces of Field
Marshal Haig crushed through it yes
erduy Just north of St. Quentin. Mil
iary authorities here were inclined
o speculate more on llie »»fforts of
lie «iermiin command to extricate its
armies from th»» allied pincers than
upon oilier possible offensive thrusts.
It was believed that the penetration
if the Hindenhurg line might furnish
Koch with a means witli which to em
han-ass tin* Herman retreat, always
with tin* possibility of precipitating
a rout.
Thus out flanked In Belgium and in
liie Champagne, and with St. Quentin
in the bunds of the entente, the swift
widening of the breach In the line,
coupled with the continued rapid prog
ress of French, Belgian arid British
forces in Belgium, it Is thought here
may possibly upset the whole German
scheme of retirement which already
had begun on the Khelms front.
Ringed by a wall of victorious ene
mies over the whole front from the
North sea to Verdun, the legions of
the Herman empire lire face to face
it It disaster. Official reports to the
state department yesterday Indicate
that the evacuation «if the submarine
bases on the Belgian const is immi
nent. There also is conclusive evi
dence that the evacuation of the lines
before Itheims is well under way.
Kaiserism Weakening.
Signs are multiplying in reports
aching the state department from
various agencies in neutral European
ountries of the rapid weakening of
the despotic control which the mili
tary elements in Uermuny and Austria
have imposed upon the civilian popula
tions. So extensive and consequential
are the events quickly following one
another in Berlin aud Vienna that
American officials nre becoming con
vinced the imperial rulers have bt»en
oreed. however reluctantly, to the con
victlon Ihut if they are to preserve
their dynasties from destruction they
must yield to the growing demands of
the civilian elements for the right of
participation In the government during
this crisis.
Make Democratic Pretense.
Germanic rulers are apparently
making a belated attempt to erect a
structure of democratic government
through the creation of cabinets re
sponsible to the parliaments in the
hope that the »»nteiitA statesmen will
lie willing to treat with these bodies.
Indications of such a purpose are
discovered in various utterances and
acts of the German anti Austrian
leaders. In his acceptance of the
resignation of Chancellor von Hert
ling. Emperor William appealed to
the strong men of Germany to come
to his aid and share th«> hardens of
government, a direct hid for the sup
port of tin» Socialists anti Centrists
in return for participation in the cab
inet. V
Socialists Block Plans.
Such a change in Germany doubt
less would lie followed. If not indeed
pre»-«»ded. by a similar revolution
Austrian parliamentary government
One interesting development In the
German internai situation, and de
scribed a* likely to have far-reaching
eon*»'«pu»nces, was the refusal of the
Socialists to enter the government as
at present constituted, indicative of a
determination to hold out for the right
of the majority party in the reichstag
to name the members of the cabinet,
even though that involves the change
of tit«» German constitution.
