The complete withdrawal of the troops of the Teutonic allies from oc- cupied territories is essential to the commencement of any peace discus- sion? with Germany. This fact has been made known to Germany and Ausiriu-nungary uy Wilson in answer to the recent appeal of the German imperial chancellor for an ar- mistice on land and sea and in the air and the discussion of possible means for ending the war. Meanwhile the entente allied forces everywhere are defeating (lie armies of the Teutonic allies. In France they are fast carrying forward maneuvers which are resulHng in the enemy's line giving way from the region of Oambrai and Verdun. Likewise in Macedonia and Turkish theaters the cleaning up process continues unabated.

Numerous towns have been captured and seemingly all the great defensive positions of the enemy in this region have been obliterated. Large numbers of prisoners have been added to the already great throngs captured since the allied offensive be- gan. Ih addition, terrible casualties were inflicted on the enemy by the heavy artillery fire at the beginning of the attack, which began early Tuesday morning, and the machine gun and rifle fire of the attacking forces against the enemy, who resisted stub- bornly at various points. The American troops, fighting alongside the British, always we.re in the van, and when night fell their po- sitions were where the points of pene- tration of the German line were great- est. At. last accounts hard fighting was still in progress with the enemy steadily giving ground. uu uif bouuiftii jiart oi nit: uaiuo front, from the. Rheims sector tr.

Wilson has met Germany's peace note with a move which, at one stroke, will develop whether her proposal is sincere or merely a pretension and if a pretension it be, fully justify for all time before the world the prolonging of the war with force to the utmost, force without stint or limit. At the same time the president has left wide open the door to peace. Declining to propose an armistice while the armies of the central powers remain on invaded soil, the president today called upon the Ger- man chancellor to state, as an absolutely necessary preliminary to a reply from the entente allies and the United States, whether Germany accepts the principles of peace as repeatedly laid down, or merely pro- poses to accept them "as the basis of negotiation" and whether the chancellor merely speaks for the German military masters conducting the war or the whole German people. As the full significance of the president's diplomacy is disclosed it becomes evident that he has left open the way to peace and at the same time left the militarist leaders in a way that will lead to peace or confront them with an embarrassing situation in their own countries. Among diplomats here the president's communication is regarded as one of his master strokes. It is pointed out that upon cursory ex- amination it may not show such strong terms as some may have desired. AU the president's advisers, however, are confident that as close con- sideration reveals its full import, it will be apparent that it is a long step forward if Germany really means peace, and that if she does not it will strip bare another hypocrisy of German diplomacy so completely that the responsibility for prolonging the war never can be charged to the allies, even by the German people themselves. The text of the president's communication was made public today by Secretary Lansing together with the official text of Prince Maxi- milian's note now published in America for the first time. At the same time officials let it be known that there would be no reply at present io ibe Austrian note similar to tnat oi tne uerman cnanceilor. It is not considered necessary to deal with Austria until the time comes for a reply to her dominating ally. j The following correspondence was given out at the state depart- ment: Se.crcta.ry In nrni'uncir.p; his action. an.xing issued the following: "Department of State.
