TO ACCEPT TERKS
UNCONDITIONAL 8URRENDER 18 NOT MENTIONED BY BOCHE, WHO WOULD ARGUE. Protests Against the Reproach of Illegal and Inhuman Actions on Land and 8ea, but Avoids Big Issues In Replying to Wilson. Washington.—Germany has replied to President Wilson with a note which, though no one is prepared to say it will lead the president even to con tinue exchanges on the subject of an armistice and peace, at least has served almost to bring conviction here that the people of Germany actually are taking the reins of government and sincerely desire peace on any terms the United States and the allies are willing to give. "In accepting the proposal for an evacuation of occupied territories, the German government has started from the assumption that the procedure of this evacuation and of these condi tions of an armistice should be left to the judgment of the military advisers and that the actual standard of power on both sides in the field has to form the basis for arrangements safe guarding this standard. "The German government suggests to the president that an opportunity should be brought about for fixing the details. It trusts that the president of the United States will approve of no demand which would be Irreconcil able with the honor of the German people and with opening a way to a peace of Justice. "The German government protests against the reproach of illegal and in human actions made against the Ger man land and sea forces and thereby against the German people. For the covering of a retreat destructions will always be necessary, and they are car ried out In so far as is permitted by international law. The German troops are under most strict Instructions to spare private property and to exercise care for the population to the best of their ability. Where transgressions occur in spite of these Instructions the guilty are being punished. "The German government further denies that the German navy In sink ing ships has ever purposely destroyed lifeboats with their passengers. The German government proposes with re gard to all those charges that the facts be cleared up by neutral commissions. "In order to avoid anything that might hamper the work of peace the German government has caused or ders to be dispatched to all submarine commanders precluding the torpedo ing of passenger ships without, how ever, for technical reasons, being able to guarantee that these orders will reach every single submarine at sea before Its return. »"As a fundamental condition for peace, tjie president prescribes the des truction of every arbitrary power that can separately, secretly and of Its own single choice disturb the peace of the world. To this the German government replies: # "Hitherto the representation of the people in the German empire has not been endowed with an Influence on the formation of the government. "The constitution did not provide for a concurrence of representation of the people ef decisions in peace and war. These conditions have just now undergone a fundamental change. A new government has been (formed In complete accordance with thd'wishes (principle) of the representation of the people, based on lequal, universal, se cret, direct franchise. "The leaders of the great parties of the relchstag are members of this gov ernment. In the future no government can take or continue in office without possessing the confidence of a majority of the relchstag. "The responsibility of the chancellor of the empire to the representation of the people is being legally developed and safeguarded. The first act of the hew government has been to lay before the relchstag a bill to alter the con- stitution of the empire so that the con- sent of the representation of the people is required for decisions on war and peace. - "The permanence of the new system is, however, guaranteed not only by constitutional safeguards, but also by the unshakable determination of the German people .whose vast majority stands behind 'these reforms and de mand their energetic continuance. "The question of the president!—with whom fie and the governments asso ciated against Germany are dealing— Is, therefore, answered In a clear*, un equivocal manner by the statement that the offer of peace and an armis tice has come from a government which Is free from any arbitrary and irres ponsible influence, is supported by the approval of an overwhelming majority of the German people.
