The Daily Star-Mirror MOSCOW, LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO, MONDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1918 NUMBER 8 • VOLUME VIII GERMANY AND AUSTRIA BOTH ASK EOR PEACE Germany acknowledges she is whipped. Kaiser Bill has issued a procla mation to his soldiers telling them his lines are crumbling and he has "offered peace to-the enemy.'' The facts are he has asked President Wilson for an armistice and has agreed to the terms laid down by President Wilson in his address to the senate on January 8, 1918, and which are republished taday in full. The plea of both Austria, and Germany for peace is before the United States senate where it is being discussed amid great flows of oratory while President Wilson, locked in the privacy of his library, is studying the notes and preparing his answer, which every American believes will be uncon ditional surrender. In the meantime the fighting against Germany is going on with renewed vigor and success. On the western front the battered armies of the kaiser are being pounded as never before and good advances are being made. Bulgaria, which recently surrendered unconditionally, has notified German , and Austrian troops that they must get out of Bunlgaria within 30 days and the Serbians have invaded Austria and taken towns, guns and prisoners Myfrom that country.

Senate is Discussing Germany's Peace Offer. 1 WASHINGTON.— The discussion of Germany's peace offer has begun in the United States senate. Poindexter, of Washington state, republican, de clared the proposal of Germany for an armistice is freighted with "the most insidious danger.'' "would mean the end of all military action if accompanied only by the enemy's «evacuation of Belgium and France it would be a German victory.. In answer to this Chairman Hotchcock, of the foreign relations committee, pointed out that Germany's offer also provides for the acceptance of the fourteen terms laid down by President Wilson in his address of January 8. Senator Hitchcock said that the acceptance of Germany's offer only upon , the evacuation of Belgium and France would be preposterous, but declared the restoration of Alsace-Lorraine to France as well as reparation for in jurieé done to Belgium, France and Serbia are among the president's terms which Germany proposes to accept. • Senator Hitchcock declared it is "absolutely abhorrent" even the thought of the suspension of hostilities now, and recommended that in addition to principles laid down by President Wilson that one providing that the » When Senator Poindexter declared an armistice Allies would deal only with the real representatives of the German people and not with the kaiser or his appointee be added to the peace terms. McCumber Imposes Heavy Penalties on Germany. WASHINGTON.—In the senate, where the German peace offer is being discussed, the concensus of opinion, as shown by the speeches and demands made, is to make Germany pay to the utmost for her part in the war. Senator McCumber has introduced a resolution, which was referred to the relations committee, but apparently meets much favor with senators, that before the United States agrees to any armistice Germany and ammunition and foreign providing must disband her army, surrender her navy and arms agree to pay for all damages to cities and country devastated and to restore Alsace-Lorraine to France, together with the penalty (indemnity) exacted from France in 1870.

We wish her only to accept a place of equality among people of the world, instead of a place of mastery. Neither do we presume to. suggest to her any alteration modification of her institutions.
