Artillery and Machine Gun
Fighting Mark Drive of
Yankees in Night
AVlth tlie American Forces on the
Sedan Front, Nov. 9.—The Ameri
can army east of the Meuse contin
ued to advance to-day despite strong
machine gun' resistance. The Amer
icans went ahead in this region "both
north and south of Dnmvillers.
Along the line of the Meuse, on the
front from Sassey to Marlincourt last
night was marked hy artillery and
machine gun fighting.
The roads leading eastward from
Sedan, Stenay. Conflans and Long-!
uyon are reported by the American
aviators to be packed with cannon
and various vehicles making in the (
direction of Metz. Vehicles are
laden with everything portable.
The Americans have moved so far
forward Into the bills east of the
Meuse that their front Is far longer
than originally intended. In addl-j
tlon they have bad to protect their j
constantly lengthening right flank;
against the enemy wedge as they nd- j
vanoed on to the heights, until the;
front was abnormally long.
But now the unit has found Urno,
to swing southward In a brief, swift;
march and mop up the river hank, i
driving the Germans from their last
strongholds at the diffcult bend in
the stream. Thus the Americans!
have secured their liason with the,
Franco-American troops to the oast'l
and Infinitely strengthened the pos
sibilities of a further udvanre.
One American division east of the|
Meuse reports a gas nnd high ex- j
plosive bombardment of unusual In-;
tensity. West of the Meuse the da) |
continued to produce little activity,
save that displayed by machine gun
and artillery.
Though, ""all other developments
are oventhadowed hy the entry of)
the Americans into the western por-j
tion of Sedan, the capture of Vilosnes
and Slvry was an achievement not j
only of Importance, hut an additional!
testimonial to the value of those
troops who battled their way across
the Meuse.

Kaiser Perhaps Appearing
For Last Time as Hun Su
preme War Lord
Washington, Nov. 9.—The ques
tion of whether Germany will sur
render immediately, or wait to be
crushed between the advancing al
lied and American armies on the
west front and revolution at home,
rested late last night with an extra
ordinary conference at German great
headquarters. Marshal Foch has
given until 11 o'clock Monday morn
ing, Paris time, for the answer.
Kuiscr Defies Civilians
At the conference the Kaiser is
reported to bo, perhaps appearing
for the last tinie as supreme war
lord, and, according to German wire
less reports, defying the civilians
who ure seeking through submission
to the inevitable to save something
out of the wreck of an empire. A
courier was duo some time during
the night with the text of the Amer
ican and Allied armistice terms,
hamled to the German envoys be
hind the Allied lines hy Marshal
Foch. lie carried the word, sent
ahead by wireless, that the Allied
commander-in-chief had refused a
provisional cessation of hostilities
[Continued on Pago .]
and demanded an answer within
seventy-two hours.
The American government was
advised from Paris late yesterday of
the reception of tlie Germans ty
Marshall Foch at 10.35* o'clock in tlie
morning and its result. Secretary
Lansing immediately made tlie news
public at the State Department.
Later unofficial information of the
movements of the German courier
ynd knowledge of the difficult roads
over which he must travel for one
hundred miles after leaving the Al
lied lines, led to the conclusion that
he could not get back with a reply
before to-morrow even if not kept
waiting for a decision.
Eiul Must Conic Quickly
In the meantime tin* result Is
waited here with entire confidence
and calm. American and Allied mili
tary men say tlie end must come
quickly one way or the other; that
if the Germans are unable to agree
among themselves and accept the
Allied terms the problem will be
settled for them with no great de
that a final effort to quibble with
hostilities stopped is ended, on the
theory that even tlie Kaiser himself
must realize that unless peace is
made quickly there will be no gov
ernment in Germany to make it.
Revival in New York, and else
where of the premature peace dem
onstrations started by the false re
port of the signing of the armistice
led President Wilson to direct Secre
tary Lansing to announce that as
soon as any decision in regard to
the armistice was reached it woulld
he made public immediately by the
government and that any statement
that news regarding this event was
being withheld was utterly false.
Envoys Have Full Power
An interesting question was raised
hy the statement in the report to the
American government on which Sec
retary Lansing based his statement
that the German envoys came with
full powers. Since the delegates did
not use lull powers either to sign
or reject the terms and instead re
ferred them to Grand headquarters,
it was regarded here as certain that
they came with the hope of accom
plishing something more than the
signuture of an armistice. It was be
lieved their purpose was to inject
matters which can be considered
only at the peace conference.
It lias been made very clear, how
ever, and emphasized in official dis
patches from France that Marshal
Foch's powers were limited strictly
to the drastic military program pre
scribed by the Supreme War Coun
cil at Versailles.

Would Follow, He Says
By Associated Press
Amsterdam, Nov. 9.—A German
wireless disputch. picked up here
Inst night, says Emperor William has
declined to uecede to the demands
that he übdicule.'
To the uUJma'tum of the Social

could not at the moment of peace
undertuke the terrible responsi

the Entente and delivering up the
country to anarchy.

tion of right to succession by the
crown prince; the introduction of a
democratic regime in Germany, ac
ceptance of un armistice, no future
wars, except. for national defense,
social reforms and an eight-hour day
for workmen.
Tho speakers were received with
great enthusiasm. They all affirmed
that tho Socialist party urged neither
a strike nor revolution but desired
only complete reform.
In a procession which was formed
and which was a mile long were
many soldiers of all arms headed by
a band. The procession marched to
the royal palace and the ministries,
where the government hurriedly
posted uppeals for the populace to
remain calm.
