Germany received the allied terms for an armistice yesterday and was told that the armistice agreement must be signed with General Foch, supreme commander «4 the allied forces. From Amsterdam and from Berlin came telegrams this morning stating that the "armistice delegation had left Berlin this morning for the western Moat." This statement is made in an official aarnouneement from Berlin, artfch came to The Star-Mirror via London. ' , There caii be but one reason for this delegation leaving Berlin for the western front. Its only mission there could ~be to sign the armistice with General Fooh and that would mean the end of the war. The armistice agree ment provides that Germany must disarm her soldiers, leave all their arma ment, munitions and stolen plunder in the hands of the allies and retire within 90 miles of the border of their own country and permit the allies to take , If the Germans did pot Intend to accept the armistice terms and surrender the delegation would not have been sent to the front. If the Huns wished to argue or "barter" f for better terms they would have had to take the matter up with the peace conference at Versailles. Their only mission at the ftspt would be to sign the armistice and surrender. It is confidently believbd that this will be done tomorrow and that within 48 hours the world poMMSion of this strip. Will hear the welcome cry: "The war is won." Hut the allies are not waiting the arrival of the armistice delegation. They «r« hammering the Germans and administering terrible punishment, seem tog to realize that today may be the last day they will have that privilege hud they are trying to make the most of the little time remaining. The American army is "in at the death" as they say in fox hunting and is driving Si' Che Huns from strongholds but not without hard fighting for the Germans ' f|| eeem to still -be centering their strength against the American armies. To day's telegraphic and cable dispatches follow: Believe Germany Will Sign Armistice. AMSTERDAM.—(Special, by Associated Press.)—German armistice dele gation left Berlin this morning for the western front. It is believed this delegation has gone to meet General Foch and sign the armistice agreement which will end the war. Germany was given the armis tice terms yesterday and fold she would have to sign an agreement with General Foch, supreme commander of all the allied forces. The departure of Mm armistice delegation fdr the western front so soon after receiving this «IMinatum, with the terms of surrender leads to the belief that the armistice is to be signed immediately. în this case fighting will stop probably within 84 hours after the armistice (which is an absolute surrender by Germany) M signed.

It will be necessary then as never before to safe guard the boys at the front and sçc to it that they are protected from tempta tions. j ,. An enormous educational program has », been undertaken by the relief organ iza i, tions which will be continued here at i home in the peace army to be main tained and which will be continued abroad as long as we have any soldiers ' across the water.

MEN WANT USED NEWSPAPERS The Star-Mirror has been asked by Dr. G. M. Miller, of the University of Idaho to call the attention of the people of Moscow to the fact that there are hundreds of young men in the quaran tine at the university who have not seen a newspaper and do not yet know the terms that President Wilson laid down for the Germans in order to obtain peace. Dr. Miller asks that the people leave newspapers that they have read at the Corner Drug store every day before five o'clock when a messenger will be sent for them. They want Spokane, Boise and other newspapers as well as the local papers. The Star-Mirror will send its Idaho exchanges there as many of them are printed in the home towns of the S. A. T. C. men. Will the liberal people of Moscow please see that papers they have read (and magazines, too,) sent to the Corner Drug store daily before five o'clock to be sent to the boys? It means little to you. It means much to them. are On Tuesday morning Miss Francis Springer became the bride of Albert Bruegeman at the Oatholic church at Thom creek.

The American public has become by this time accustomed to the practice of givihg money when its gov ernment asks for it, and besides, there is a very strong feeling that everything possible should be done by the folks at home for the boys at the front who are making every sacrifice that the rest of. us be safe and happy.

COUNTY, STATE AND NATION York RUTH SIDES CLAIM cobs comi SENATE WILL PROBABLY BE A TIE. LOWER HOUSE IN DOUBT REPUBLICANS GAIN BOISE..—With half of the vote of Idaho counted not a single democrat has been sleeted on the state or con gressional ticket. Borah is reelected, leading his ticket. Gooding defeated Nugent for United States senator for the short term. Gooding's majority is estimat ed at 3,500. Republicans Will Control Next Congress. NEW YORK.—The New Times, democratic, concedes that the republicans will control the next congress. The Times claims the re publicans will have a majority of four senators and nineteen congressmen. The New York World makes the same admissions. Democrats Claim Majority of I is Senate. WASHINGTON.—The. democratic national committee headquarters aarly today claimed ths senate will be democratic by at least one seat. The final results would show small demo cratic majority in the house. Democrats Carry New York. NEW YORK.—Returns from 6,794 districts in New York state, out of 7,230, including New York city, give Whitman, republican for governor, 938,714; Smith, democrat, 970,827. Smith leads by 32,113, with 436 pre cincts missing. Republicans Claim Both Houses WASHINGTON.— Sate majorities for the republicans in both houses of congress are claimed by the national committee. Secretary Reynolds said Uncle the returns showed 50 republican senators. Two hundred and thirty re publican representatives were elected. There are good prospects for a larger majority of both houses. Clean Sweep in Idaho. BOISE. — The entire reuublican ticket, including state and congres sional tickets elected, with republican control of the legislature. Davis has been elected governor by double the number of votes given for Samuels, the nonpartizan candidate. Control of Congress Still in Doubt. NEW YORK.—Early today it is not apparent whether the democrats or republicans will control the next con gress, Party managers on both sides predicted substantial working majori ties but returns now in show between 50 and 76 congressional districts still unreported. The line-up is so close that the scales might easily turn in favor of either party. Ford, for U. S. senator in Michigan, is running far behind Newberry, republican. Folk, in Mis souri is defeated for senator by Spencer. Former Speaker Joe" Cannon reelected. Victor Berg er t socialist, under indictment for es pionage, elected to congress in Wis consin. This offsets the defeat of London, socialist congressman in New York who failed of reelection. Champ Clark leads Dyer, republic an, in Missouri and is probably re elected.

NEW YORK.—Republicans have reversed the democratic control of the house on the face of incomplete returns up to 3 o'clock this afternoon. Both are claiming a majority of the senate. The returns indicate the member ship of this body will be close, prob ably a tie. With returns of 17 con gressional districts missing the re publicans apparently had 225 out of 435. " 191, socialists 1, independent 1. The democrats have seated 40 on the fact of the returns and the re publicans a similar number (this un doubtedly refers to the senate.—Ed.)

Jessup was born at Colfax, Wash., April 3rd, 1892 and departed this life at Fort Rosecrans, Calif., November 1, 1918 aged 26 years, 6 months and 28 days. There survives him three brothers, Edward L. Jessup of Cottonwood, Idaho; Arthur M. Jessup of Moscow, Idaho; and Earnest L. Jessup of Lost Creek, Wash. And two surviving sisters, Mrs. A. S. Bris bie ,Viola, Idaho and Mrs. Bmma El ler, Faver, Alberta. Clark left Grange ville October 21 of this year Fort Rosecrans to enter training in the service of his country. Mili tary funeral services wen held at the grave. The Rev. Dean Hamilton, of the Baptist church) conducted the service« and delivered the sermon. for it was a republican landslide. Wil son's appeal to elect a democratic con gress failed. Indications are that the republicans will control the next con gress, but this is not certain. It is cer tain, however, that the republicans have made substantial gains in both the sen ate and the house. Idaho made a clean sweep of the non partizan league, which did not get "to first base." Every republican candidate for congress and state offices in Idaho was elected by big majorities. Davis beats Samuels for governor by about two to one. Borah's majority over Moore for long term United States sen ator is enormous. No one knows just how big it is, but Borah carried Latah county. It is believed he carried every precinct in the county, including Moore'* home precinct, north Moscow. Borah'» vote in Latah county is more than double — that of Moore. The closest race was that between Frank R. Gooding, former governor, and John F. Nugent, democrat, for United States senator. Nugent had the indorse ment of the nonpartizan league. Good ing fought the league with alt his might and every weapon within the league's power was turned against him. Latest returns give Gooding 3,500 majority over Nugent. French had a runaway race with Pur cell, nonpartizan candidate on the re publican ticket. No effort has been made to tabulate French's vote. He is leading Purcell by at least 3 to 1. In Latah county the republicans also made a clean sweep. For the first tim« in many years there will not be a demo crat in the Latah county court house after January 15, 1919. The closest race was between Carl Smith, democrat, and Elmer Paulson, republican, for commis sioner of this (the second) district. Paulson was more than 329 votes to the good when this vote was tabulated. The nonpartizan candidates for the legisla ture were so badly beaten that they do not appear to have been taken seriously anywhere. Shoshone and Bonner counties, where Samuels has lived for the past 26 years, gave big majorities for Davis. Shoshone county, where Samuels was once prose cuting attorney, gave Davis 1,600 ma jority, although it is normally the strongest democratic county in the state. Latah county gave Davis more Ilian two votes to Samuel's one. It is be lieved that Samuels did not carry a pre cinct in Latah county nor a county in the state, Gooding will probably have a larger majority in Latah than in any county in the state. With returns from 15 of the 25 precincts in the county, Gooding led Nugent by 822 votes. French led Purcell in Latah county by more than 4 to 1. Following is the vote of the 20 pre cincts on United States senator and gov ernor: Borah, 2633: Moore, 1303. Bo rah's majority, 143Q. Gooding, 2369: Nugent. 1453. Good ing's majority, 916. Davis, 2705; Samuels, 1170. Davis' majority, 1535. The legislative candidates elected arc ; E. W. Porter, state senator ; Alfred S. Anderson, Homer W. Canfield and C. J. Hugo, representatives. The county officers elected are : Com missioner, first district, John Cone (re elected) ; second district, Elmer Paul son ; third district. Columbus Clark. Clerk of the district court and auditor, Homer E. Estes (reelected). Sheriff, John L. Woody. Treasurer and tax collector, Miss Iona S. Adair. Probate judge, Adrian Nelson (re elected). Superintendent of schools. Miss Lil lian Skattaboe. County assessor, Emmett J. Gemmill (reelected). Coroner, Glen O. Grice (reelected). Surveyor, Harvey J. Smith (reelected). Prosecuting attorney, John Nisbet. The returns on the amendments have not been tabulated, but it is certain .that all but No. 3, abolishing the office of state superintendent of schools was overwhelmingly defeated. It is be lieved that No. 3 carried in Latah county. * BRICK PLANT INCREASES OUTPUT CAPACITY Our progressive brick plant is put ting in a new kiln. This new kiln is a small one, burning about 12,000 bricks at a time, compared to the two larger ones already established which hold about 80,000 brick each at one burning. The smaller kiln is being built so a car load at a time can be rushed out, as the orders often come for just one car of hand-made bricks of a special pattern. A number of orders have come from the govern ment recently. All summer the plant has run a full crew day and night part of the time, which means 16 to 18 men at the plant at Moscow and five men at th* pit of the clay deposit near Joel. -PS Miss Thressa Murdock, a former nurse at Carither's hospital, died in Spokane Monday of influenza.
