KKTIIHHIDCK, ALBKRTA, WKDNKSDAY, OC.TOBKH IMi. 1!MS M MBKR 271 HUNS SEND NEW N ETREAT A REPLY TO AUSTINS German Government Now Addresses American People Direct, 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 tjovernment reached Washington today. It supplements the last brief communication, saying armistice terms were 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, hut send the information for the American government, apparently recognizing that the stage of personal appeal has passed with the transmission of their armistice 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 supremo war council already is reported to have formulated terms upon which the United States and the allies might permit a cessation of hostilities. A* word of the new German move came it was learned that President Wilson was working on a reply to the last note from Vienna, in which the Austrian government accepted all principles and conditions of the president, and ?3ked for an armistice and peace 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.
