Knemy Still Impenitent; Foe
Twists Wilson Condition*;
Only Shuffling
Paris, Oct. 22. —The German re
ply to President Wilson was
eagerly discussed in official circles
ind in parliament. Among deputies
of all shales of opinion the. impres
sion was, first of all, that the reply
betrayed more than previous com
munications the state of depression
and the demoralization of the Ger
man people a tshe result of the
Allies' victories.
As a whole, the note is found to
be equivocal and tortuous and plati
tudinously phrased us to leave the
door op£n for all sorts of quibbling.
Nowhere >8 there evidence in the
reply of a genuine desire to accept
the only way in which peace can be
concluded aceordin gto expression
of opinions here On the contrary,
all that is apparent is the urgent de
sire of the German general staff to
get an armistice at any price in or
der to reorganize its reserves of men
and material. Therefore, it is gen
erally believed that the reply is not
likely to be considered at Washing
Loudon. Oct. 22. — Newspapers al
most without exception view the
German reply to President Wilson
with impatience and distrust. "Ger
many still impenitent," is the cap
tion on the editorial of the Chronicle,
which dismisses the reply as ob
viously inacceptable. The Graphic
is more optimistic and says "ver
bally, the Germans are getting
slightly nearer the point of view
upon which the Allies mean to in
"The nigger in the woodpile," in
the German reply, according to the
Express, is the desire "for an armis
tice based on an elaborate estimate
of the rival forces us they are to
day." This, lite newspaper says, is
a "disingenious twist of the Wilson
conditions," and continues;
• "We dare not consent to a suspen
sion of hostilities unless we can ob
tain in October the terms we shall
■dictate before July to an enemy who
is broken and beaten to his knees."
The German reply to President
Wilson is regarded here as "not
business, but mere argument and
protestation." in government, diplo
matic and political circles the view
is that it ,s not a reply, but simply
a resort to verbiage. One highly
placed official described it as "badly
camouflaged insincerity "
Would Sacrifice Dignity
lleitrv M llyndinan. leader of the
B'i Socialists, said:
- reply is simply another piece
of shuffling. I hope President Wil
son will answer it very abruptly and
briefly. If he were to accept this
reply as a basis for negotiation, in
my opinion he would simply be sac
rificing the dignity of tlte position
he has worthily gained."
Frederick George Kelloway. par
liamentary secretary to the minister
of munitions said: "Only our leaders.
Premier Lloyd George, Premier
i Temeneeau anil President Wilson, on
the political side, and Marshal
Koch, Field Marshal Huig and Gen
eral Pershing, on the military side,
can say if the note means that Ger
many is at Utst prepared to face the
fuels and draw the inevitable con
clusion. The way to make an early
pence is to be ready for a long war."
Liggett and Bullard
Made Lieut. Generals
Washington. Oct. 22.—Major Gen
erals Hunter Liggett and Robert L.
Bullard were nominated by Presi
dent Wilson to lie lieutenant gen
General Liggett commands the
First American Field Army in
France and General Bullard "com
mands the second. They become the
only liehtenant generals on the ac
tive list, their new rank being for the
war period, like that of General
Pershing. General Liggett is a major
general in the regular establishment,
and General Bullard is a brigadier.
When General Liggett arrived in
France General Pershing was at
work on the formation of the First
Army Corps and this task was
I romptly assigned to him. The
American commander-in-chief was
so well satisfied with the result that
l.iggett was given direct command
of tlte First Field Army when it was
organized and led it into action when

Text of Germany's Plea For Peace
The text of the German note, as
received by wireless, is as follows:
"In accepting the proposal
for an evacuation of occupied
territories, the German govern
ment has started from the as
sumption that the procedure of
this evacuation and the condi
tions of an armistice should be
left to the judgment of the
military advisers and that the
actual standard of power on
both sides in the field "has to
form the basis for arrangements
safeguarding and guaranteeing
this standard.
"The German government
suggests to the President that
an opportunity should be
luought about for fixing the de
tails. It trusts that the Presi
dent of the United States will
approve of no demand which
would be irreconcilable with the
honor of the German people
I anc< with opening a way to a
t peace of justice.
"The German government pro
tests against the reproach of
illegal and inhumane actions
made against the German land
and sea forces and thereby
against the German people. For

Democratic* leaders of Dauphin, j

trict of Democratic National Chair- j
man Vance C. McCormick, have been
unable to find a candidate to take '
the place of H. H. Mercer, who with- !
drew at half past the eleventh hour. ;
Several meetings liuve been held, butj
no agreements readied and last night j
a session, marked by much argument j
and tobacco smoke, was held at the j
Democratic slate windmill, in Market!
Square, without any result as far as a
nomination was concerned.
Chairman McCormick is said to be |
j insistent that some one be named, but i
the leaders have been unable to find I
any one willing to be tagged, as the'J
district is overwhelmingly Republican,
and it would lie a very expensive
proposition lo make any kind of a
campaign now.
The general satisfaction with the
j course of Congressman Aaron S.
Kreider appears to extend to tlie rank

and irresponsible influences, but ot

Need Make No Reply
Diplomatic observers point out that
the President is at liberty, with per
(feet consistency, to make no response
at this time, but to await develop
j ments. to await the performance of
(the promises of tjie Germans not to
I torpedo passenger ships, their im-
I plied promise to work no more de
[struction during their retreat from
Belgium and France than military
■ necessity requires, and finally to
await further development of the
political leaven that evidently is
iworking toward the complete over
throw of military and autocratic
power in the empire.
! N'o one believes that an immediate
j cessation of hostilities is in sight.
(The opinion most generally held is
that, if Mr. Wilson decides to make
I a reply,' and if the Entente Govern
| ments agree, the only step possible
at this time would be to sanction ar
rangements to be dictated by Genernl
iFoch in the field for withdrawal of
the Germans without further fight
ing. Such arrangements of course,
would be contingent upon guaran
tees of continued supremacy of the
victorious allied armies, and conse
quently virtually would mean sur
render for the Germans.
| Senator Borah said he looked
I upon the note and the German gov
ernment reforms both as shams, and
doubted the sincerity of the arm
istice paragraph. This is a good time
to end negotiations, he added.
Senator Curtis, after considering
the note, said he still thought we
should demand unconditional surren
ider, after which peace terms could
[be discussed.
| Senator Overman, Democrat,
thought the "way seemed open to
j peace if we wanted to accept" that
[kind of peace.
I Senator McKellar, Democrat, said:
|"I am still for absolute and uncon
ditional surrender."
Senator Harding. Republican,
said: "The note contains no new sug
gestions which we can accept re
garding an armistice."
Senator Smoot, Republican, said:
I "The American people and the gov
ernments of the Allies will never
stand for any sort of a negotiated
(peace. Until the Huns have more
than a taste of defeat there can be
[no peace. Unless the military power
of Germany is broken nothing but a
jpatched-up peace can be made, if
peace that is to last is- to be made,
[it cannot be through negotiations.
[ I must be dictated to Germany. Ger
;many is not beaten yet, und peace

! Senator Hitchcock, Democrat, said:
("I do not believe an armistice will be
granted until all the terms of all the
i Allies have been accepted and com
plied with."
j Senator Poindexter, Republican,
Isaid: "When German armies have
I laid down their arms and marched
Ito the points designated by the Al
lied high command, then Germany
I will be conquered, and not until

Bike the first note, this one is re
( garded in some quarters as another
I step in the German plan of bargain
( ing in the hope of securing terms
more favorable than the uncondi
i tional surrender which they are pre
