President Asks Maximilian
for More Information
Washington, (let. ft. President Wil I
«on bus met Herinany's peace note;
with a move which will ul one stroke]
develop whether tier proposal is sin- |
cere or merely pretension and, if pr**- j
tension ii lit*, fully justify for all time
before llie world the prolonging of Hicj
war with force to the utmost, fin i e i
without stint or limit. At tin* sane
finie the president lias left wide open
Ihe door to peace.
The unanimous opinion among dip
lotnats Is Huit Hie president by a ear,
fully studied, most skillful reply, lui s j
robbed them of that opportunity. II j
they desired It, und lias sent to 1 1 if* j
Ueruuiri people themselves a new nn-- ;
sage Hint the United States and allie
desire nothing more tlian "a reign ul |
law, based upon the couaent of I lie
governed and sustained by tin* organ
ized opinion of mankind."
It was freely conceded that a lia'iy
reading of the president's answer
might not at first satisfy some who
hoped for a flat rejection of any terms
but an unconditional surrender. But
the government is confident that as
the president's communication is care
fully digested, its full Import grasped,
its almost Inevitable effect realized,
and Its possibilities for weakening the
Herman military party on its home
grounds comprehended, It will be s«*en
llnil the .president chose a very deep
Inti direct method of developing an
answer for all time to the question,
do the German people want peace?
Avoids Hun Trap.
Press dispatches bad previously an
nounced that the president would not
make a curt and peremptory rejec
tion of the offer, nor bluntly demand
an unconditional surrender now be
cause the American government did
not propose to fall into Hit* trap of
supplying the Herman militarists with
I means of bolstering up their argu
ment that the Hermans are fighting a
lefenslve whir and that the an
loiinced objects of tin* allies are only
to "destroy" them.
Thai is precisely what President
Wilson has avoided. He Juts met what
Hie allied diplomats regard as a trick
with a move which will expose it. If
I trick it he. He has called upon Ihe
Uernimi government for evidence of
its good faith, and should it not be
forthcoming, In* has left with the Her
man leaders the problem of explain
ing lo I heir own people, already clatn
'»i-lng for peace, why they are not will
ing to accept It.
From that point the president passes
to another which will develop as the
exchange proceeds, whether the Unit
ed Stales and the allies will deal ex
cept on the battlefield with the Her
man government as at present consti
tuted. Tile president tells the cluin
•ellor he feels he Is Justified in ask
ng whet lier the Imperial chancellor Is
«peaking merely for the const 11 ut ed au
thorities of the empire, who have so
mm- conducted Ihe war." This will de
velop whether Maximilian speaks for
lie Herman militarists whom the pres
ident lias denounced ns- unworthy of
"i.v trust and who regarded treaties

speaks with the force of the people of
Hie nation, litis is regarded as pt-oh
