Paris, Nov. 12.-The chamljer of de-pntios has seldom displayed such unanimity as it did ye3terday in cheering every article of the German armistice terms as it was read by Premier Clemenceau. As soon as the premier had read a clause, the entire chamber jumped to Its f6et and cheered. Generally the tumult was so great that the voice of "the tiger" was lost in the uproar. Only once or twice were there purposeful interruptions by the Socialists. After reading the conditions, the premier excused himself from making a lengthy address, but said: "In the name of the' people of France and In the name of the government of France; let us salute Al-aace-Lorralne." There was prolonged cheering, after which the premier added, feolingly: "Lot us honor the great army wlio died." Tears came to the eyes of most of those In th^ chamber-tears tor the memory of the dead and tears from the powerful reaction of the moment. Deputies- from Alsaoe-Lorra'Jne who had bein in France since 1914 and some of whom had fought with the J'rench army were enthusiastically cheered as they-presented themselves in the gallery. The diplomatic gallery was filled and among those present were the Earl of Derby, the British ambassador, United States Ambassador Sharp, and,the ambassadors from Spain and Italy.
