Washington, Oct. 22. The prevailing belief here tonight is that the 'Presi dent will be guided largely in his ac tion on the new German note by the decision of the Supreme War Council in France. Though no intimation of his attitude has come from the President, shrewd diplomatic observers take this view because, admittedly, the question im mediately at issue is a military prob lem. . The issue, which the allied war council may determine is whether it is to be suggested through President Wilson that Foch is to be applied to for terms, or whether, without fur ther diplomatic parley, approach of the white flag from the German lines is to be awaited. - Official Text Received. The official text of the German nota was delivered to the State Department today. Because the entire day will b3 spent in decoding the document and preparing an English translation, the note will be delivered by Secretary Lansing at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.'- . . :.- ; There is evidence, that exchanges be tween ' London, Paris and -Washington have been, proceeding since the ar rival of, the wireless version and that, pending word from the War Couneil as to t wlrat thermilitay si tuation .de mands, .the" President is in no hurry for the official text. " : Senator. Lodge issued a statement during the day. denouncing the note as another poorly laid trap and reite rating his opinion that - the President should demand unconditional surren der. It is practically certain that no trap will succeed. .It is stated and repeated on authority that there will be no j relaxation, of .the. forward movement ! of the allied, and -American armies or abstention from .attack on the retreat ing fe, except upon terms of the allied and American military leaders. Terms of evacuation would include breaking the German war machine as an armed, force and occupation by the Allies and Americans of such strong holds as Gen. Foch deems necessary.

LUCIA, WELL KNOWN IIERE, SUNK BY SUBMARINE The American steamship Lucia, for merely an Austrian freighter, taken over at Pensacola' at the outbreak of the vrar and converted into a suppos edly unsinkable ship has been sunk, according to advices received from shipping circles. . The ship -was equipped at a cast of more than $200,000 with an "unsink able" device approved by naval offi cers for experimental purposes. She was held - in port for several months while installation of air-filled boxes in her holds and- cabins was in progress. This buoyancy arrangement the inven tor claimed would keep the ship afloat no matter how much water was taken in through holes in the side torn by shell fire. The steamer had made several trips without accident and the submarine attack which sent her to the bottom was the first attempt to sink her. She was a ship of 6,744 gross tons and was built in' Austria "in. 1912. She was en gaged in cotton trade between Austria and American Gulf ports before . the war. -Details of the singing or the fate of the crew are lacking.

ALL1ESDISTRUST GERMANY'S NEW PEACEPROPOSAL BELIEVE f REPLY IS ATTEMPT TO EVADE, COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS LAID DOWN BY PRESIDENT AS BASIS FOR AN -ARMISTICE. . London, Oct. 22. The German reply to President Wilson is regarded here as. "not business, but mere argument and protestation." ' In government, diplomatic and political, circles, the view is that it ; is not a reply but simply a resort to verbiage, designed to cover - the absence of reply. One highly placed official- described it as "badly camouflaged insincerity." -, .The government has not considered the reply in detail, although Premier Lloyd-George and his colleagues held protracted , deliberations today. Il-enry -M. Hyndman, , leader of the Eritish socialists, said:. "The reply is simply another piece of shuffling. I hope President Wilson will answer it very -'abruptly - and briefly. At- any 'rale, he has given Emperor William an opportunity to say that he and his I vople are one - In the same sort - of duplicity and treachery ' to have been threatened throughout the war. Frederick - George Kelloway, parlia mentary secretary to the minister of nrunitions,,said : "Only our-leaders. Premier 'Lloyd George.

It remarks that only the supreme commander has the right to lay down the conditions of an armistice." The announced " con cessions respecting submarine warfare are merely pretense,- the Petit Journal continues, inasmuch -as the submarine campaign is a definite failure, par ticularly in "view of the loss of Ostend and Zeebrugge. The most s-eneral comment in ih-3 nress 'upon, the; German r.'tly is that the enemy is attemnting to escape an admission 'of defeathy causinc pacifist acitations -in entente countries. ' With this end in - view the German w ireless is sending-.'out fantastic stories of pacifist manifestations in important French-cities and of imminent strikes. As a;whole the note is found to he equivocal "and - tortuous and piatitudl nously phrased - as . to leav the door open for - all sorts of , quibbling. - No where - is there evidence in " the renly of a Genuine desire to accept the only way in which peace can be concluded, accordine to "expression of onlr'on here.
