On With the War, New York, Oct. IS.-Sir 13ric Ged-des, first lord of the British admiralty, when told tonigiit of Germany's reply to President Wilson, declared "peace will be got by going on with the war now and t;he best way to finish the job is to buy Liberty bonds," As Washington Viewed It Washington, Oct. 12.-Germany's reply to President Wilson's* inquiry, intercepted as it was being sent by the great wireless' towers" at Naueu, and forwarded here'tonight in an official dispatch from France, declared Germany is ready to accept President Wilson's peace terms, evacuate invaded territory as a prerequisite to an armistice and that the bid for peace represents the German people as well as the government. Aithough on its face the text ot the Gentian note seems to bo a complete acceptance of President Wilson's terms, the people of the United States and allied countries should be cautioned that acceptance of such a compliance �with the president's demands will not mean an immediate cessation of hostilities.
