Informing Them of Steps Toward Democracy- Wilson Sends Austrian Note to Other Allies. HE'S UP TO HIS NECK. BUY VICTORY BONDS AND SINK HIM. WASHINGTON, Oct. 30.-Another note from the German oovernment reached Wdshlnoton today. It supplements the last brief comtiunication, saying armistice terms v/ere awaited by reciting in detail government changes which have taken place in Germany as evidence that the Kaiser has been deprived of all power of making war and negotiating peace, This time the Germans do not address President Wilson personally, but send the information for the American government, apparently recognizing that the stage of personal appeal has passed with the transmission of their armistioe and peace plea to the allies. It reiterates that the actual power and responsibility of the government has been transferred to the Reichstag and describes the progress of the necessary constitutional changes. The note probably will be forwarded immediately to Paris, where the supreme war council aj^ready is reported to have formulated terms upon which the United States and the allies might permit a cessation of hostilities. As word of the new German move came it was learned that President Wilson was w.orking on a reply to the last note from Vienna, in which the Austrian government accepted all principles and conditions of the president, and asked for an armistice and psace proposals. The reply, which probably will be made public before night, is expected to inform the authorities at Vienna that on the basis of acceptance of all conditions, including actual independence and not mere autonomy for subject nationalities, their request has been referred to the governments with which the United States Is associated. London, Oct. 29.-The Versailles conference, according to the report current In London this afternoon, has agreed on the main points of the . armistice terrhs, which will now be considered by the military commanders.
