Paris, Oct. 5.—Germany, Austria Hungary anti Turkey have resolved simultaneously to ask President Wil son to make representations in their interest for a general armistice and negotiations for a; general peace, ac cording to a Berne dispatch to the Havas Agency. Amsterdam Says the Proposal Has Been Hade. Amsterdam, Oct. 5.—The immediate suspension of hostilities lias been pro posed by the imperial German chan cellor, Prince Maximilian, in the Reichstag, according to the Berlin correspondent of the Tidj . The en tente allies are to be asked to state their terms. The chancellor's proposal embraced also the dispatch of plenipotentiaries to a neutral place.to discuss the ques tion of a league for national arbitra tion and disarmament. ,-Tlie pleniuotentiarics are further to be empowered to discuss the creation of a federal Austria, the right of self determination for Russian frontier states, the restoration and indemnifi cation of Belgium, autonomy for Al sace-Lorraine and the return ot the German colonies. The terms of the entente allies will be asked ;t the same time with the object of forming a basis for the con sideration of those important ques tions. Other advices say that the chancel lor has not yet made the statements credited to him regarding ihe sus pension of hostilities, the appointment of plenipotentiaries and the request for the allies’ terms, but that it was understood lie would make such pro : posals. . - Huna Said to be Ready to Restore Indemnify Belgium. Amsterdam, Oct. 5.—Germany de clares herself willing to suspend hos tilities immediately, in the peace offer made by Prince Maximilian today, restoration and indemnification of Belgium and autonomy for Alsace I.orrrine cps suggested in the x)aac.. offer. ■■ i The retur:: o all German colonies is demanded. Prince Maximilian sug gests in his note that envoys of the various belligenents be empowered to discuss-at a peace conlerence the cre ation of a federal state of Austria. The .German note concedes tlic right of self-determination of the Russian frontier states. Germany, through her new imperial chancellor, Prince Maxim::;an of Ba den, in a message addressee to the aliio3, asks them to state their terms. An earlier report that an armistice is requested in this note is still un confirmed. Throughout the day reports iand rumors of a German peace Did has been coming thick and fast. Berlin dispatches told o. the assembling of the Reichstag lor :i# special session. | The Baden prince was to ma.ke his in augural speech and in it announce his policy. In his capacity as foreign minister, which he couples with his duties as chancellor, he was to cover the initial field. The first definite hint that 31 sensa tionr:l announcement was expected came in a Berlin telegram to the of fect that entire press of Germany and Austria-Hungary reparded today's event as the turning point of the war.’ While the circumstances preceding •end surrounding the peace bid are as yet unreported at the hour of cabling a strong impression prevails here that the government was virtually forced by Austro-Hungary. Trouble In Austria. The dual monarchy iA Vienna and Berlin dispatches early today was reported, in the throes o,f announce ment bordering panic. Revolt ’ was said to be threatening Baron von Hussarek had resigned as premier, rod with him his whole cabinet went out. Herr Hamarsch, like the Baden prince, a reputed pacifist, was slated to take the premiership and his first step was to be to send a message to President Wilson setting forth; Aus tria-Hungary s conception of the ■American executive’s 14 peace princi ples. In short, everything indicated that Austria would not budge an inch in her determination to “bring aibout” peace. German threats and promises had been unavailing. Afraid to repeat her blunder in the case of Bulgaria, whose threats she had taken for bluffs, Germany, it is Believed, chose the inevitable course of taking the load in offering peace before she would be entirely de serted and be Isolated, a besieged fortress, with inescapable disaster staring her in the face. By acting as the spokesman of the central alliance, reduced1 by Bulgaria’s defiance to a triple entente whose two other members were bent upon peace >J>; i c wp .*. -- „ .iv„.sul Little Ohamce Allies ... i jnsiiler Armistice With 'Ireacherous Foe Washington, Oct.5.—“The voice is the voice of Prince Maximilian, but he is speaking the language of the military party.” This was the comment or one State Department official tonight when he was informed tii. t, the new imperial German chancellor, in his first ad dress to the Reichstag, had asked the allies to state their peace terms, and had also, unconfirmed reports said, proposed an armistice. Nothing but the exigencies of the military situation, it was suggastea is behind the German move for peace, which follows so closely upon Aus tria's move, which! was rebuffed, in a 1 urry by the allies. Another State Department official declared that Prince Max's proposal seemed to follow the same lines as Austria’s request for a> “uon-bindiug discussion” on the part of all bellig erents, and this being the case, he ex pressed the belief that it would meet with the same treatment. The department tonight had not been officially advised of the move of the chancellor, but in the light of newspaper cable advices, it wajs gen erally conceded tjiat Prince Maximil ian, aware of the dangers now con fronting German arms, was only too willing to assume the burden of at tempting to obtain peace and that his utterances betrayed his willingness. Armistice I'nililnlrab’c. Whether or not the armistice re port is correct, one sentence >vill suf fice tor it—-namely, the allies wi 1' not consider it. The United States, in common with the entente -Hies have seen, as President Wilson point ed out, the full fruits of the Brest I i'ovsk and Bucharest treaties and will not allow Germany the slightes' hope of an abandonment of hostili ties. The treachery that has charac terised Germ.my throughout the en tire war would show to its best c.U vantage were s;n armistice allowed, T was said. - - * • < . ; ’ President Wilson s YA, . It was less than two weeks age when President Wllsen restated the inis of the war—and his words li eve bocn approved ty all the allied coun tries—and declared we could n:. come to terms with Germany cf Aus ria. In view of this, some officials here say the action of Prince Maxi milian is more than presumptious. JVe h:ve stated our peace terms more than once. It is up to Germany to accept them at their face value, without asking for lurther explana tions, it was said. “We are all agreed,” said the president in his New York address, “that there ca,n be no peace obtained by ajny kind of bargain or compro mise with the governments of the central empires, because we have dealt with them already and have seen them deal with other govern ments that were parties to this strug' gle, at Brest-Litovsk and Buck, rest They have convinced us that they are without honor and no not intend ,'ustice. They observe no covenants, accept no principle but force and 'heir own interests. We cannot come to terms with them. They have made it impossible. The German people must by this time be fully aware that we cmnot accept the word of those who forced this war upon us. / We do not think the same thoughts or speak the same language of agree 1 ’GUt.” This portion of the president's speech, officials say, closed the door to the German proposal. -W.S.S. 100 NEW SHIPS BUILT Tonnage of 301,433 Completed in U. S. During September. Washington, Oct. 5.—One hundred seagoing vessels, 46 steel and 54 wood, aggregating 301,433 gross tons, were completed in American shipyards during September and officially num bered by the Bureslu of Navigation. In addition 70 nonseagoing vessels ot 7,037 gross tons were built during the sijme period. During the nine months eneded September 30 the total of sea going and nonseagoing vessels built was 1,357, of 1,722,730 gross tons. because of military defeats and irres tible home pressure, Germany, it is thought by well informed observers here, attempts to rescue what prestige she cam and save, above all, her lead ership for central Europe at the peace table. Last, but by no means le-st, her end less defeats in the West served as a compelling motive toward the peace offer. On the face of all reports, the de cision was ta,ken practically over night. It. was a complete face about on the part of the kaiser and Hinden burg, who two days ago emphatically vetoed the Baden prince’s urgings for am immediate “peace offensive.” N .. <-»s.
