Our land and sea forces have not been been guilty of Mogul nil inhumane actions and we have ordered them not to commit any More such actions. The German government is now free from any arbitrary and irresponsible influence and is supported by the approval of an overwhelming majority of the German s note to president Wilson. Considering the assurances Given by the German government i Ciu Quot decline to suggest to the Allied governments the consideration of an armistice which however must leave the United states j uni its allies in a position to enforce the Urru Geinert made and to make impossible n renewal of hostilities by Germany.

Unconditional surrender and that or. Wilson was losing ground by continuing the diplomatic discussion with a government with which he very properly declares the United states can idiot negotiate. There was general approval of the latter part of the note which pronounced against any peace with the Kaiser and the rest of it was praised by those who saw in it a Clever move to alienate the German people front their military lenders. There was no doubt anywhere of the tightness of the president s alms and intentions but Many Public men feared that his very admirable detestation of War and his fondness for writing notes might Lead him into an Estabar Assiut diplomatic Maze. In reassurance. It May be said that no armistice and no Pence will be arranged that Are not entirely to the satisfaction of great Britain France and Italy As Well As the United states and that these four allies have agreed that Germany must he required to surrender. There will be no cessation of hostilities on the part of the allies until Germany not Only evacuates occupied territory but also gives substantial guarantees that will prevent resumption of fighting by her and the entente allies Are determined that any discussions concerning in armistice shall take into full consideration the sea Power in which they Are predominant. orders to observe the rules of in rare have Heen issued i there is in end of the Contention a Hie defenders of the German people a distinguished from the German in Fawi Tilc government namely that the is commit outrages Only under the wets of the ill Loury command.

Then followed an Imperial manifesto announcing the formation of Federal states in Austria Hungary the setting ii of a suite of their own by the germans in Austria the creation of n Sovereign state by the slovenes croatian and serbs without reference to present political frontiers and Progress by the hungarians toward full in dependence with reports that they were about to apply to the entente Sove Biniems for terms for n separate armistice Anil peace. The Empire of Charles was Fust breaking up and there was the greatest depression in Vienna where famine threatens and the authorities Are powerless. Congo Ili gently according to dispatches the austrian government is becoming reconciled to the idea of unconditional capitulation. Java again and yet again the unduly optimistic must lie reminded that from n military Point of View Germany still far from being Defeated. Though she is being forced to relinquish her grip on Belgium and Northern France she is conducting her Retreat in order to Tel much in her own Way and though losing much material and thousands of men is carrying off most of her heavy guns and a great Deal of her supplies destroying the bulk of those left behind. She divisions on the West front 30 of them being in Reserve and with these with the men resumed from Lisp with those coming of military age she probably can hold out for Many months on her shortened front. The huns Are railing Buck to successive lines of defense pivoting on lie positions North of the a Goime and on the mouse Heights and with Many thousands of machine guns in a neg positions or Iii Hinig the. Advance of the allies As i a cult and expensive As possible the present government of Germany seem ugly does t intend to give up the fight without making a desperate finish and toward the end of the week it was said Ludendorff had drafted a to the people exhorting them to carry on the War to the utmost since the Tiu la would not Grant them without humiliation. Peace All week Long the germans con fun cd their withdrawn from Belgium it Nelmes moving rapidly and tit others putting up n stouter resistance in order to Rescue some stores or guns. In being driven from Tho belgian coast some 15,000 buns were forced across Tho Holland Border and were promptly interned by Tho dutch. La neg b Brit lab forces ably seconded by Tho Bel Gians the French arid some american divisions drove Forward relentlessly and before the week closed were chasing the last of the huns out of Valenciennes. To the South of that City in the direction of Muu Beuge and Mons tie British made a smashing Nutuck breaking through the enemy line of defense on u wide front and threatening to outflank the line of the Scheldt which further North had held up the Progress of the allies to some extent. By cutting the Banks of the Scheldt canal and other Waterways the germans flooded the country. The capture of Mons and Mau Beuge would be serious to the germans for those cities which Are United by a Railroad have been the principal German concentration and Supply Points on the ardennes front. East of be Catena where the americans Are fighting beside the British the Allied Progress was Rathe slow. The fall of Ghent in the near future seeming a certainty the germans were Ticu Atung it and the belgian govern Tient decided to establish itself in the eco erod City of Bruges. A the French in the Laon Region moved Forward somewhat but the and Ance there was slowed up considerably during the week. In the Champagne the huns were keeping up the most determined kind of resistance and the americans in the Valley of the were bearing the Brunt of Tho severe fighting. It was the hardest kind of work and it times Tho Yonks had to fail Back but always they returned to the combat and carried their objectives. Powerfully organized machine gun positions were encountered everywhere in that Region of ravines and Hills and forests and to take these without too much loss it was necessary to Man Euver past them and attack from the Hanks and rear. Farther West to the North of grand pre the americans were engaged in equally severe lighting but there too they were slowly overcoming the stubborn resistance of the huns. In this they were materially aided by the big bombing squadrons of the nor forces which not Only continually harassed the enemy in the fighting lines but made repented raids on his bases and Supply trains. A one fourth of Germany s Nail Nola military strength has been placed in the Champagne and Meuse sectors to hold Back the americans and French there and the task these Allied armies tire doing while not showy is of tremendous importance and difficulty. Hie huns Are trying desperately to save the Meziere Luxemburg railway system on which depend All their communications in that Region. It is a satisfaction to know that the americans Are giving a mighty Good account of themselves there and that while their own losses Are not Small those of the enemy Are vastly larger Tain the near East matters progressed favourably the allies driving the austrians northward and reaching the Danube on the Border 1.1ms completing the isolation of Turkey from the Central Powers. A further Advance to Orsovai will open the Way for an invasion of Austria in Montenegro the process of Clearing out the foe went Forward rapidly.

Plans Are being discussed to make constantinople a free port and dismantle the fortifications of the Dardanelles on condition that Tho allies guarantee the continuance of constantinople is Tho capital of Turkey. It is also proposed to Grant Nuton Oiny to Arabia Syria Armenia and the jewish part of Palestine. A that germans seem to Delight in violating the sense of decency of Clyl lined people. Tho latest example of this propensity is Tho naming of Baron von Der inn Olcen As head of a commission of Neutral residents of Brussels which is to investigate charges of unnecessary devastation during the Retreat from Belgium this Baron played a lending role in the murder of Edith Cavell ignoring the representations of Brand Wittock and refusing to Lav Tho nurse from death.
