Shipping Board, announced today that between 15 and 20 yards arc building wooden ships. Many men are being discharg ed at the various yards by the Boa-d on account of inefficiency. WASHINGTON, Oct., 24— Presi dent Wilson has informed Germany that he has transmitted that nations correspondence, seeking an armistice and peace, to the Allies and has sug gested that if they are disposed to grant peace upon such times as in dicated in the German note, their mil itaiy advisors and those of the United States will be asked to submit neces sary terms of such armistice as will fully protect the interests of the* peo ple involved. President Wilson said that accept ance of such terms, if offered, would be the best evidence of Germany's acceptance of the terms and principles of peace. t The President said that the Ger man reply does not appear that the German government is yet responsi ble to the* German people and the nat ions of the world do not care to trust the word of those hitherto masters of German’s policy. The Presidenf says that if America must deal with Ger man autocrats, surrender, not peace negotiations, is demanded. REPLY SENT BROADCAST % WASHINGTON, Oct., 24— Presi dent Wilson’s reply to the German note was sent broadcast something heretofore never done. The reply of the President was sent out to the world after the official text had been put on the cables. If not picked up directly by the great Ger man wireless station at Naue.n, th** President’s reply was undoubtedly re layed from other European points and should have reached Berlin this fore noon. BRITISH CABINET MKETS. LONDON, Oct., 24— The British war Cabin**t met this forenoon pre sumable to discuss President Wilson’s reply to Germany. All afternoon papers state that the re ply of Wilson was a splendid rebuke to Germany. Tin* Standard says: “One way of looking at the reply is that the Presi dent of the Cnited States, has decided that the German reply was so pitiful ly weak that practically no reply was needed to be sent to Berlin. So the President submitted the German re ply to the other Allies and as much as said: ‘If you think this is a pea<e note, then act upon it. I don’t.’ -4 Many a timid man ffives nnothe1 credit for his own ideas because lie isn’t quite sure of their merit. SULZER IS STRONG AT CORDOVA TOO CORDOVA, Oct, 24— Delegate Charles A. Sulzer addressed a large audience here last night making a most effective answer to W icker sham’s recent speech her© in which charges of pro-Germanism and slaek erism were made. Referring to his birth, Delegate Sulzer showed that his father left Germany when D* years of age after an endeavor to ov erthrow autocracy and that he never returned. His father married and rais ed a large family in America. The Del egate and three brothers were volun teers in the Spanish-American war find two laid down their lives in the Philippines. Delegate Sulzer stated that he had been helping the goveriunent in every way to win the war and asked: “What « has Wick done?” To that end Dele gate Sulzer show'ed how Wickersham, ■ I “fighting Jim" had been fighting the j work oi Alaska instead of fighting ( the Kaiser; fighting AJaska’s best j friends in Congress and he had proved that he was willing to sacrifice his re latives but would do nothing himself. Delegate Sulzer discussed the fish erics bill saying that the unsatisfact ory conditions of the industry called tor quick action and during the eight years Wickersham had been delegate he nad done nothing to remedy the ef fects of tne present system. Delegate Sulzer explained the bill saying that liehir ection.ldwai hZl while it was not perfect it was a start in the light direction. Delegate Sulzer called attention to the lact he had been an advocate 01 the temperance doctrine and had done notiiing to reopen the question anu was being misrepresented by Wicker sham on this point. ‘*'ihe Home rule does not reopen the* question.” said the Delegate. l ne speaKer euciea mucn appiause and laughter by pointing out tin* rea son why Wickersham helped the Hill by putting in certain words to prevent the Alaska legislature ever abolishing the delegateship which he regarded as iiis personal prorogative by changing the election law governing that office. The speaker discussed the opi>ositio!i of Wickersham to the Australian bal lot as it would make it impossible for illegal voting of unqualified In dians who had been herded together and voted in droves. Delegate showed evidence of energy and effectiveness surprising to many and especially regarding his laws on development of Alaskan resources. His speech had a splendid effect and the Delegate was highly compliment rdby the citizens who spoke of “Slip perv Jim” having met his match. Sulzer leaves for Juneau on the Northwestern. The sentiment here is that <x-delegate Wickersham has burned out his “wick" and that his pretenses of being a great friend of Alaska and working for Alaskans, are mere shams. FARRAGUT ARRIVES.
