Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 27, 1918 ,THE L BRIDGE DAU.Y HERALD PAGE NINE Bulgarians Ask for 48-hour Armistice ' Paris, Sept. 27.-Gen. Franchet D'Eepery, commanding the allied armies in Macedonia, ha* tele-graohed to the French government that a high Bulgarian officer ha* presented himself in behalf of Gen. Torcdow, commanding the Bulgarian army, asking the suspension of arms for 48 hours to permit the arrival of two authorized delegates from the Bulgarian government. The minister of finance, Llaptchiff, and Gen. loukoff, commanding the .Bulgarian second army, are on their way to the French headquarters with the assent of King Ferdinand to arrange -the conditions of the armistice and eventually the term* of peace: The French commander reports that the Bulgarian request reached him through an intermediary. The general commanding the British army in the oast forms a part of the allied command. D'Espery's reply, therefore, asked the Bulgarian delegates to present themselves to the British lines. Gen. t>'Espery says that, as the Bulgarian request might be a military ruse to allow the re-grouping of forces and the arrival of reinforcements, lie made a reply-declining to grant an armistice but promised to receive duly authorized government delegates. The text of the reply of the French commander to the letter brought by the Bulgarian officer reads: "My response, that I sent through the Bulgarian officer hearing the letter in question, cannot be, hy, reasdh of, the military situation, other than tho following: "I con accord neither an armistice nor p. suspension of hostilities tending to interrupt tho operations in course. On the other hand, I will receive with all due courtesy, the author- ized delegates, duly qualified, of the royal Bulgarian government. These delegates to present themselves in the British lines, accompanied by a-parlia-menlarte. (Signed) Franchet D'Bspery." German* Excited. London, Sept. 27.-Berlin dispatches Bay that the premier's act, "is a slnglo handed move without the consent of King Ferdinand." Gorman newspapers demand that Mallnoff l)o dismissed immediately and eourtmartialled for high treason. It is bolioved that the premier's act is the result of Germany's refusal to send sufficient reinforcements to Bulgaria. The situation, in Bulgaria is causing excitement in Germany. The application is regarded as a serious movement and contrary to the report from German sources of the armistice move, there is no suggestion that it is the action of Premier Mallnoff on his own Initiative. The request which was addressed to the allies is for an armistice for the discussion of peace. Would Have Big Effect. London, Sept. 27.- (Reuters.)- Router's learned from the foreign office that in Bulgaria's application for an armistice there was no suggestion that Premier Mallnoff's action was taken only on his own Initiative. The request for an armistice is in order to discuss peace. Great Britain can only reply after consultation with her allies. It 1b understood that the official view is that peace with Bulgaria would have a prodigious effect, especially with Turkey. It would free the whole Saloniki army and in certain eventualities bring about peace with Turkey and thus free the Meso-jfotamian and Palestine armies and thus kill the German menace to the east. Moreover, it would affect advantageously the world's food, supply. Crystal Dairy Buys Site for Three-Storey Building A transaction of considerable importance took place recently when the G. P.

Chairman Gardner of the committee of the employees this morning told the Herald that he had been informed that the government will not grant a commission in cases where less than 20 men are affected. "In that case we will endeavor to have' a local arbitration board appointed," he said.
