Turkey hus given up.
Not waltlug for the result of armis
tice and peace proposals made to the
entente allies through President Wll
son, she made poace proposal* to tlie
British government early In the week
which were considered in London as
tantamount to unconditional surren
der. The armistice weut Into effect st
noon Thursday.
The request for an armistice was
carried to Admiral Calthorpe at Mu
dros by General Townshend, released
by the Turks for the purpose. Regu
larly accredited plenipotentiaries fol
lowed, and after three days' parley#
the armistice was signed. It Is both
military and naval in character, and
while the term* were not at once made
public. It was known that» they lnclud
ed free passage of the allied fleet*
through the Dardanelles, occupation of
the Bosporus and the Dardanelles
forts, the Immediate release and re
turn of all allied priaonera of war,
and concessions that give the allies
complete military domination over
Turkey. The o|>enlng up of the Dar
dandles leads to the expectation of
an early battle between the allied
fleets and the German Black sea fleet
Tlie latter includes a number of pow
erful vessels of various types stolen
from Russia.
Turkey could not do much else than
surrender. She had fought her fight
and was really all done. General Ai

the recent big advance» of the British

with the collapse of Bulgaria whief
Isolated her from her allies left her no
other course than complete sulunls
slon. The Greeks were on edge to be
l>ermlttcd to inarch on Constantinople
and the Bulgarians wanted to Join In
such on enterprise, and there was riot
ing and threats of revolution In the
Turkish capital.
Latest news from Mesopotamia tell
of the capture of the entire Turkish
army on the Tigris.
Tlie United States was not at war
with Turkey and so nominally has no
part In the peace negotiations: hut
I im.« b*s*n taken for granted that thl
I country will at least lie consulted In
! the matter. Probably Colonel House.
now personally representing the pre*i
j dent at the council* at Versailles,
knows what Mr Wilson thinks abodt
Turkey, ns well as about tlie rest of
ihe world, and can tell the representa
tives of the entente government*. It
may Is* that In this matter the senate
will have no voice, as it Intend* u>
have in making peace treaties with the
nations with which America 1* at war.
The German government having sig
nified It* full acceptance of the allied
t«rm* as a bsai* of arrangement* for a
ces<wtion of hostilities, the loter-allled
supreme war council in Versailles
sfx-nt most of the week settling upon
the terms of armistice tliat should be
Imposed on the Hun*. It wa* agreed
that these would be exceedingly drae
tic. There si* not tlie slightest dispo
nition to leave to the German* sny
mean* of renewing hostilities if the
subsequent peace negotiation* should
fail through. It was ladlesed that the
term* would include evacuation of all
Invaded territory within a fixed
period . surrender of all ordnance and
ammunition ; withdrawal of German
forces beyond the Khlne. and their de
mobilization ; surrender of the frontier
fortress**; release of ail silled prison
er* of war. German prisoner* being
held to help in restoration of deraa
anud territory; surrender of at least
« number of C-toata.
In effect, all tills would mean the
absolute surrender of Germany, and
tlie ullles »quid be in a position to dic
tate and enforce any pence arrange
ments they saw fit to make. It is tlie
intention of the allied governments,
and the ardent desire of the allied
armies and people«, that nothing less
than this shall be demanded of Ger
many. Whether tlie Huns have yet
been brought to a condition where
they will accept such terms was a ques
tion. hinny military authorities be
lieve they will elect to fight for a
while longer before submitting so ab
jectly, and millions of the soldiers nttd
civilians of the allied tintions fervent
ly hope Ibis will tie the case. Oth
rwlse, they feel, Germany would es
cape too easily from suffering some of
those horrors of war which her armed
forces have ruthlessly Indicted on oth
ers and over which lier people have
gloated with savage glee. Of cours«*
no such deliberate Inhumanities as the
b-rinan soldiers have practiced could
or would be practiced by the troops of
the allies, hut the German cities and
towns could be made to feel the ter
rible hardships that accompany ocru
pntlon by au invading enemy, und tlie
inhabitants could be taught » lesson
that would go far toward deterring
them from ever supporting a war of
aggression, even if their rulers were
left with the power to start such
conflict. The allies are not vindictive,
hut they intend that stern justice shall
be meted out to Germany : and iu tills
the American soldiers who have seen
what lias Inen done to Belgium and
northern France are, if |sHtsihle, more
determined than the aoldiera of any
other nati*ui. They, and all right-mitid
ed Americans at home, feel that
»loppy sentimentality of the "forglve
your-enemy" order ha» no place iu
dealings with the Hun*.
If Germany-accept» the term* of the
armistice and begin* to carry them
out In apiwreut good faith, Ihe great
war may be considered a» virtually
ended. Thl». however, does nut mean
that peace will bt- negotiated with the

Prince Max, the chancellor, sought
again last work to reansure President
Wilson as to the genuineness of tlie

It was no wonder that I'oont An
drussy, the Austro-Hungarian foreign
minister, was Insistent on an anata
tlce, for the armies of Emperor
Charles were having a very bad Mine
of It. The Italian front, comparative
ly quiet for many weeks, biased out In
a great attack by the allien, and with
in a week the Austrian* had been
driven back all the way I «-tween the
Brenta and Zenson bend. The Ital
ian* begun the offensive and were
speedily aided by the British. French'
and American contingent». The ernaa
iug of the Plave by tlieae enormous
forces was said to be a wonderful
sight. Sweeping Irresistibly north
nil east of the river, they drove a
great wedge tutu the enemy's lines
that speedily gave them poaaeaatoa of
the big Austrian bas« of Vtttorta.
Ttien the action been me general along
the entire line. The British on tha left
wing enter««l Aslago, and In the Pen

Italians occupied the city of Oderso.

writing the fate of ihn« divisions was
unknown. Already the allies had
taken Almut fto.ouo prisoners and great
mores of material. The announcement
from Vienna, that Austria-Hungary
was withdrawing her troops from Italy
because of her desire for peace, sound
ed rather ridiculous. On Thursday tho
