New York, Nov. 11.- False reports
that tJcrmuny hint accepted the terms

Hun Armistice Delegation Take* Pro
posal* Back to German Great Head
quartere.—America and Allies
Confidently Await Outcome
Washington. Nov. Î). —Tic question
of whether Hermany will surrender
immediately or wait to be crushed be
tween the advancing allied and Amer
ican armies on the west front and revo
lution at home, rests todi v with an
extraordinary conference at Herman
great headquarters. Marshal Foch ha»
given until 11 o'clock Monday morn
ing, I'arls time, for the answer.
At the conference the kaiser is re
ported to he, perhaps, appearing for
the last time as supreme war lord and,
according to Germnu wlrelcs reports,
defying the clvlliuus wlio are seeking
through submission to the inevitable
to save sound hing out of the wreck of
an empire. A courier was due some
time last night, with the text of the
American and allied armistice terms,
handed to the Herman envoys behind
the allied lines yesterday morning h.v
General Foch. He carried the word,
sent ahead by wireless, that Hie allied
commander-ln-chlef had refused a pro
visional cessation of hostilities and
demanded an auswer within 7" hours.
Lansing la Advised.
The American government *ru»' ad
vised from Paris late yesterday of the
reception of the Hermans by Marshal
Foch at 10:35 o'clock In the morning,
and Its result. .Secretary Lansing im
mediately made hte news public at th»'
stHte department. F»atcr unofficial In
formation of the movements of the
German courier and knowledge of the
difficult roads over which lie must
travel for 100 miles after leuxing the
allied lines led to the conclusion that
he could not get hack with a reply be
fore today even If not kept waiting
for a decision.
America Is Confidant.
In the meantime the the result Is
awaited here with entire confidence
and calm. American and allied mili
tary men suy the end must come
quickly one way or the other; that If
the Germans are unable to agree
among themselves an daccept the al
lied terms, the problem will he set
tled for them with no great delay.
Some believe that acceptance Is as
sured and will be hastened now thul a
final effort to quibble with hoslllitles
«topped Is ended, on the theory thut
even the kaiser himself must realize
that unless peace Is mude quickly
there will he no government In Ger
many to make It.
lievtval In New Y'ork and elsewhere
yesterday of the premature peace dein
onntratkms started Thursday by the
false report of the signing of the ar
mistice led President Wilson to direct
Secretary Lansing to unnounce that
as soon as any decision in regard to
the armistice wus reached It would be
made public Immediately by the gov
ernment und that nny statement that
new# regarding this event was being
withheld wus utterly fais**.
An Interesting question was raised
by the statement lu the report to the
American gover'dnient on which sec
retary Lansing based bis statement
thut the German envoys came xvith full
powers. Since the delegates did not
use full powers cither to sign or re
Ject the terms and Instead referred
them to graud headquarters. It was
regarded tier** as certain that they
came with the hiqa* of accomplishing
something more than the signature of
an armistice. If was believed their
purpose was to Inject matters which
can lie cousldcrcd only at the peace
It has been mini** olcur, however,
und emphasized In official dispatches
from France that Marshal Koch's
powers were limited strictly to the
drastic military program prescribed by
the supreme xxar council at Versailles.
