' ' -  '  � : It is unpeceisary to go Into a complete explanation of the terms as pab-Ua^ed.^JudBlnjc by the interest displayed in the contents by the people of this part of the Empire they were second only In ,iimportenoe to the news that fighting had �otaaUy ceaa-ed on the west front. However, it is interesting to point out a few t>f the outstanding features. One of these is Clause 34. At ficst glance this appears to give Germany a loop-hole to break the contract, bnt on fuller consideration it Is evident that 4-the terms Imposed rest wholl^ on Germany. If therefore there is any ncn-falfillmeat of terms it mnst be on the part of flermany, and consequently it rests with the allies to say whe-. ther the contract shall be broken within the 30 days daring which the terms are to be in force. This clause may look like.a joker, but its acceptance by Germany show'how abject is their surrender. , Quite satisfactory are the clauses relaUhg to the giving np by Gennany of A part oC her navy and her army equipment, including 5000 heavy and field guns, which is one-half of all that remains of that equipment. These clauses alone will put Oermany outside any temptation to break the contract. Once the clauses are enforced It would be Impossible for her to do anything other titan make � complete surrender. The term relating to the complete financial reparation for the damage done to Belgium and France and the repayment of all levies made on the occupied territories �f these nations is also qhlte as uipected, and Is satisfactory. It is also interesUng to note that the allies have not forgotten RuBsia fxA Rumania, ber former allies. The Brest-iatoTSk treaty with. Jlussia is declared void, as Is also the treaty with Rumania, and ail gold paid by these countries .binder the terms of the treatiee Imposed by Germany is to be paid into a trust fund held by the aUles, to be paid back to Russia and'Rumania as soon as order is restored In Russia. This is evidence that the allies do not Intend to desert their former allies in the hour of tirinmph. - Probably the greatest criUolam of the tenos will beiin the lack;^ll% V ' ^ jTql^ejBrilJtt is-over.
