He asked Chancellor Maximilian whether he represented the German people or the authorities of the empire, who are conducting the war. The president's message was not a reply but in the form of an inquiry. The imperial German government is asked whether it accepts the terms laid down by the president ii> his address to congress January 8, and subsequent addresses, j At the cabinet meeting it was said the president had determined upon a firm course which would in every way meet the sentiment of the country.

The president, it was believed today, has preceded actual sending of the reply by asking Premiers Lloyd George, Clemenceau and Orlando to advise him of their answer or by submitting to the premiers a draft of his reply for approval. At any rate it wasv assumed the American reply wili have the approval of Great Britain, France and Italy and of nil the other co-belligerents. The form of reply, of course, has not been revealed in any particular. Feeling that coincident with, or closely following, the despatch of the reply, President Wilson will address congress, persisted today, although with absolutely no official confirmation. It was thought probable that the president might deem it advisable to reveal to the people of America and the people of the allied nations the reasons underlying the decision reached.
