MILITARY OFFICIALS AIR VIEWS Chaotic Conditions Rsportsd Prevail ing in Both Germany and Austria Hungary Von Hlndenburg Respon sible For Berlin Government's Ac ceptance of Wileon'a Peace Terms. Replies to Austria and Turkey. Washington, Oct. The military situation on the west front and po litical conditions in the Teutonic na tions may determine the nature of the German reply to President Wil son's latest communication. Reports reaching Washington through official sources by way of neutral countries not only Indicated the existence of almost ohaotic con ditions in the central powers, but also said that it was Field Marshal Hindenburg himself who was respon sible for the German government's accepting the president's peace terms and seeking an immediate armistice. It was said that at a recent meeting of the military leaders and the heads of the parties in the reichstag Von Hindenburg boldly declared that Ger many must have peace at once on the best terms she could get. He said the armies no longer had the neces sary munitions and materials to con tinue the struggle, nor was there any source of supply, so far as he was aware. No indication has been given as to when replies will be made by Presi dent Wilson to the Austrian and Turkish appeals for peace. It is un derstood there is no ground for the apprehension which has arisen in Austria that the president would re fuse to reply to Premier Burian's ap peal because of the autocratic char acter of the Austrian government. It was said that this might well figure in a final peace proposal, but would not operate to prevent the considera tion of an armistice which Austria seeks. The same is true of the Turk ish appeal. Military officials here are almost unitedly of the opinion that Germany has not yet been brought to the point where she will accept the president's decision and seek an armistice on the terms laid down. On the contrary, they think the military elements still in control will hold up the president's communication to the German people as proof of their contention that their enemies are determined to bring about destruction of the nation and do not desire any peace short of that. Then they will continue the retreat of their armies on the western front In the hope that an early winter will find them behind shorter and very much more powerful lines of defense, close to the German border but still on her enemy's soil.

SERVICE SHOES Caivfc be beat" AtamoSil half your life is spent in and it's a matter of see that those shoes are NO ARMISTICE,! C3 SAYS WILSON Autocracy Must Go and Atroci ties Must Cease. NO PEACE WITH KAISERISM President Devlaree In His Answer to Germany's Proposal That an Arnsle tiee Can Not Be Considered Unleee It Is Dictated by the Allied Com manders In the Field Reply May Cause Revolution In Germany. Washington, Oct. 15. President Wilson's answer to Germany's peace proposal, stated in a few words, de clares there can be no peace with kalserism; that autocracy must go; that no armistice can even be thought of while Germany continues her atrocities on land and sea, and that one can not be considered unless it fully is dictated by . the allied com manders in the field in such terms as absolutely provide safeguards and guarantees that Germany's part will not be a scrap of paper. If the answer does not bring a ca pitulation which may be more than an unconditional surrender, allied diplomats and American officials be lieve it may cause a revolution in Germany. Beyond question It speaks for the entente allies as well as the United States. Quite outside of the formal phrases of a diplomatic document was Presi dent Wilson's word to the world that he had no thought of stopping the fighting at this stage. The official note which will convey the president's decision to the Ger man government, and, more impor tant, to the German people, was de livered by Secretary Lansing to the charge of the Swiss legation, who has been acting as the intermediary. One outstanding point which does not appear in the president's note a point on which the world has been asking questions, can now be an swered. When the president declared that the wrong done to France when Germany took Alsace-Lorraine should be righted he meant that Alsace-Lorraine should be returned to France. Those who contend the president's decision arranges the situation for something more than an uncondi tional surrender base it on the argu ment that he has now passed the stage where he might have accepted a surrender of the German military and naval forces and left the Hohen zollern autocracy on its throne. Mr. Wilson, according to this view, has now finally Informed the German peo ple that if they want peace they can only attain it by getting rid of the kaiser and his system. An armistice, it is true, might come first, and the details of the downfall of the German autocratic government might be arranged later. But this is what an armistice would entail: First, a stop of the atrocities on land and sea and the systematic destruc tion and devastation in the wake of the retreating German armies. Then, the disarmament of all the German forces and the deposit of their arms and munitions at points to be chosen by the allied military commanders. Then, the occupation by allied forces of certain German cities or strong holds of strategic importance. Prob ably also the occupation of all the submarine buses, a turning over of the German fleet. In short, it would entail a taking from Germany of everything with which she might break her word to an armistice. From that point the United States and the allies might proceed to dis pute of what remained of kalserUm if the German people have not done it 'iBl'ore, as President Wilson In his ola pluljily .Invites them lu do.
