This event is believed here to assure the signing of the peace treaty ny Germany at an early date, as Scheidemann, the premier, was understood to be the chief opponent to the acceptance of the revised peace terms. It is also understood here that the fall of the Scheidemann government entails the fall also of President Ebert, of the National Assembly. The Assembly probably will take measures to select a successor to Herr Ebert. Up to noon today there was no official confirmation that Herr Noske was forming a new government. French official information on the German situation is to the same general effect as that received by the American delegation. French advices carry the information, or rather the impression, that the na-! tional assembly is favorable to signing the peace treaty. It is reported here that the Germans have asked for further time limit within which to act on the treaty matter. Since the Allies handed Germany their ’ultimatum seveial days ago, however, it is not thought that any further extension oil time will be granted. An Exchange Telegraph dispatch, from Paris to London this morning states that the National Assembly at Weimar has accepted the terms of the peace treaty. JOHN W. MURRAY DIES AT 61 (I VV.
