Revolt in Germany Expected, loes not bring a capitulation which may be more than an uncon ditional surrender, allied diplomats and American officials believe it may cause a revolution in Germany.

The text of President Wilson's re ply follows: "Sir : "In reply to the communication of the German government dated the 12th instant, which you handed me today.

HUVEN OF SAFEÏÏ SOUGHT OF HUNS QUITTING BELGIUM IN ORDER TO ESCAPE ANNIHILATION BY ALLIED FORCES. Zeebrugge, Important Submarine Baae on the Flanders Coast, and Bruges Once More in the Hands of Belgian*. London.—Germany's dream of an in vasion of England across the North seu from Calais is ended. The Bel gian coast again is Belgian. Belgian Flanders is fast being evac uated by the enemy, and tills line from tlie Belgian frontier to tlie Meuse river gradually is giving way under the attacks of tlie British, French and American armies, which are demand ing to lie served with victory. A haven of safety in a shorter and more compact line is being sought by the Germans in order to eseaiie an nihilation by their foes. Everywhere they are being whipped. But seem ingly they are still far from defeat. Zeebrugge, Germany's second great submarine base on the Nortli sea, has gone the way of Ostend. Tlie Hag of Belgium once more flies over it. To the south Bruges lias been evacuated, and Tourcoing, Bubals und other towns have been delivered. Out of tlie great sack between the North sea and tiie L.vs river tlie enemy is fleeing fast in an endeavor to prevent cap ture or internment in Holland. His hope is that lie will be aide to reach Antwerp and there reconstitute his line from tlie Dutch frontier through Antwerp and Namur to some point in tlie south, probably Sedan or Metz, and stabilize it, for the moment at least, to tlie Swiss frontier. In France, east of Lille to Cambrai tlie British slowly hut surely are pressing forward, despite supreme ef forts of the enemy to hold them, blot ting out Hie big salient which lias Tournai as its northern and Valen demies its southern enemy-held bases.

German Retirement in Belgium. Washington.—While tlie German re tirement in Belgium lias glittering pos sibilities, military opinion here is forced to tlie conclusion that what i in progress is a well ordered and ex ecuted withdrawal, probably upon pre pared positions. The fact that ports from other portions of the front, notably from tlie Lille area and the sector southeast of Loan, also tell of retirements, gives the movement indi cations of a general withdrawal; but, as yet, no official information has come to indicate where the line upon which the enemy will attempt to stand, has been established. Former Senator Kearns Dead. Salt Lake City.—Thomas Kearns, former United States senator from Utah, mining man and capitalist, died October 18, after an illness of one week from a stroke of paralysis, prob ably the result of bis being struck by an automobile, a few days previous to the attack, when he suffered a frac tured leg and a severe shock.

Vegetables are not usually regarded subject for eloquence. But Sir Charles Wakefield certainly attained some fine flights recently on the pre sentation of a basket of fruit and vegetables to the lord mayor of Lon don. The master cf tlie Gardeners' company first declared that the pos session of an allotment was an almost certain test of good citizenship, and, growing alliterative in his enthusiasm, said he saw more beauty in the potato than in a pansy, more loveliness in a ieek than in a lily, more honor in cul tivating the humble cabbage than in causing the cultured carnation to fur ther displays of pride. It is to be noted, however, that the delegation to which Sir Charles acted as spokesman presented the lady mayoress with a bunch of orchids and not of leeks such as Sir Charles' statements might have led the lady to expect.
