served several years in China and is

"Editor of the Star-Mirror, Mos
cow, Idaho.—Dear Sir: You were
very kind to me while in Moscow
this fall and I want to thank you for
the public welcome you extended to
me and the kind publicity you gave
my lectures and addresses. I desire
you that I appreciate it all.
We have surely had a strenuous
time since leaving Moscow. When
we arrived in San Francisco we found
that our passports had not turned up
up, nor any word of them. We were
to sail on the 21st and it was mid
night on the 19th before mine finally
came and even then my wife and boys
had been overlooked; and that in spue
of several letters and telegrams to
the state department about them.
Well I was in a fix. Then I remem
bered our good republican congress
man, Burton French and I was sure
he would not be too busy to give a
• fellow a lift where a reasonable and
legitimate thing was asked of him.
I sent him a long night letter setting
forth my plight and I had his reply
at 1:15 on the following afternoon
assuring me that he had taken the
matter up with the proper authorities
in Washington and that they were
wiring the 'Frisco representative of
the state department authority to
straighten the matter out, so that we
might get off. Well, I set about the
straightening out process and I am
now convinced that every one of those

MISTICE AGREEMENT WITH
ITALIAN GENERAL SUNDAY
PARIS, Nov. 3.—(By the Associated
Press.) — Official announcement was
made here this evening that an armistice
has been signed with Austria.
Hostilities will cease at 3 o'clock Mon
day afternoon. The conditions of the
armistice will be published on Tuesday.
Official announcement of the signing
of the armistice reached the premiers
while they were in session in the apart
ment of Colonel House, President Wil
son's personal representative, this after
noon, and gave the greatest satisfaction.
It was arranged that the conditions
of the armistice would be made public
The meeting of premiers and military
and naval representatives at the apart
ments of Colonel House today was a
continuance of the sessions previously
held. While the discussion was largely
informal it went over the whole range
The representatives were in full ac
cord on practically all the points treated. I a
The sessions will continue as the mo- IB
ment has not yet arrived for the taking ^
of a final decision on some of the most
important questions involved.
Premier Lloyd George, of Great
Britain and Premier Clemenceau of I
France left the conference together.
They exchanged friendly greetings on
the prompt signing of the Austrian ar
mistice and showed in their manner the
keen satisfaction they felt regarding the
progress of events.
Announcement by London.
LONDON, Nov. 3.—An armistice with
Austria was signed this afternoon by
General Diaz, the Italian commander
in-chief, according to an official an
nouncement made here this evening. The
text of the statment reads :
"A telephone message has been re
ceived from the prime minister in Paris
saying that news has just come that
Austria-Hungary, the last of Germany's
a nies, has gone out of the war.
"The armistice was signed by General
Diaz this afternoon and will come into
operation tomorrow at 3 o'clock. The
terms will be published on Tuesday."

terms which the Austrians have accepted
are expected here to furnish a clear in
dex to those which the supreme war
council at Versailles is preparing for
Germany. Consequently their publica
tion will carry greater significance than
otherwise would attach since the Aus
trian surrender had been discounted in
advance by the internal disintegration of
the dual monarchy and the collapse of
the Austro-Hungarian forces on the
Official announcement that the ar
mistice had been signed reached the state
department today. In making this
known, officals gave no indication of the
terms imposed, nor was there any ex
planation of why cessation of hostilities
had been delayed 24 hours or more after
the actual signing of the articles of sur
render. The generally accepted view,
however, seamed to be that it was de
sired to have virtually all Italian soil
freed of enemy troops before the Italian
armies were committed to end their
attacks upon the routed Austrian forces.
Military men said the terrils which
the supreme war council has prepared
would make it impossible for the Aus
trians to renew hostilities, probably'in
cluding the disarming of the enemy
troops and occupation of strategic points.
Some of these, namely, Trent and Triçst,
àlrtady have been occupied by Italian
and allied forces.

through Austria to attack Germany from
the south should the supreme war com
mand decide such a stroke necessary-in

today said the Germans were preparing
for such an attack.

advised as to the progress of events.
Great importance is attached here
the course followed by the allied and
American governments in deferring
peace settlements with Austria, Turkey
and Bulgaria until Germany also shall
surrender or be crushed. This policy
counted upon to prevent any eleventh
hour attempt on the part of the Germans
to sow seeds of discord among the allies.
In view of the general situation, the
smashing Franco - American victories
north and west of Verdun are regarded
as significant. Unless an armistice inter

pressed home relentlessly to cut the
German front in the west in half before
there is another halt.
