Official Text of the Latest German Note Sent to Sectfy Lansing. Washington, Oct. 8.?Secretary Lan slug today issued this announcement: "Department of State, October 28, 1918. "Tlio Secretary of State makes pub lic the following: "Frofn the Charge d'AfTalres. a. i. of Switzerland to the Secretary of Slate: "Sir: "I am Instructed by my-government and have the honor to submit to your Excellency the original German text of a communication from the German government, dated October 27, 1918. which has today been received from the Swiss Foreign Office. "I heg leave also to enclose an En glish translation of Hie above-men tioned communications the German text of which, is alone to be consider- | ed airt horitative. "Acoept, Sir, the renewed assuran? ces of my highest consideration. (SSgnecU "F. OEDHRLIN, "Charge d'AffairS." a, i. of Switzerland. His Excellency. Robert Lansing. Secretary of State, Washington.. Translation of a communication from the German government, dated October 27, 1*18, as transmitted by the--Charge d'Affairs a. i. of Switz erland, October 28, 1918. The German government hag taken cognizance of the reply of the Presi dent of the United States. The Pres ident knows the far reaching changes Which have taken place and are being carried out in the German constitution al structure. The peace negotiations j of the people in whose hands rests/ the authority to make decision?. The ; military powers are also subject to thHs authority. The German govern- ' men t now awaits the proposals for an armistice, which 1b the first to? ward peace of Justice, as described by the President in his "pronounce ments. (Signed) ? SOLF, State Secretary of Foreign Affairs. Berlin, October 27, 1918. Lett?? From Soldiers In France. Continued from page one and the KaiBer 1b wiring to the Presi dent of the United States that he will accept an honorable peace, he has his men on high seas sinking ships, mur dering men, wemen and-chlldren. No mun can be made to believe that Ger many wants an honorable peace so report may cme out that the Kaiser has abdicated but the American sol dier has to know for himself. It may be one, two, or three years before the Khaki boys eai a Christmas dinner at home (but I think one will be the limit) with their friends but every one is willing to remain In or der to bring back home honor and na tional peace. Germany has been flirting for many years, is still flirting with Japan and probably others, but when the Khaki boys be^n to sing " where do wc go from here, boys?" on the other side of the Rhine there will be uo more flirting with the Kaiser, and he cannot look back and say "I have fought a good fight." but he can say. "i have r wished my course." Message from London. Oct. 14th, reads: No tmeporary armistice ,nor i'.ry armistice at nil. unless accompan ied by Germany's unconditional sur render. This is the dominant note from the commeuts of Wilson and Lan sing. The leaders of all peace loving people, can see in Germany's endeav ors to open peace negotiations merely an attempt to avoid disaster and to save her military reputations. Wilson understands the people "with whom he is dealing. Germany is try ing to plead now that the Allied lead orrf and Wilson does not understand them In their conditions, but Wilson says you do not want to be under stood when you are pleading with me for peace and that you hare war enough, then in, the meantime compel your men, against thtfir will, to de stroy cargo, burn homes, sink ships, I and murder innocent women and chil Idren. Dropping bombs on Red Cross buildings ad hospitals the like of whicli ' no other nation ever did before in ,time of w*r or peace. The American boys are all in it tc i the Inst unit nd backed up by the Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., and the others left behfind and they will not be sat isfied until every Hun is in want ol some hiding place and then with a cr> to >V'ilson "go to" and don't let go un til they are satisfied of war, then lei every Khaki boy have ttvree more rounds each. Then the boys will beglt to sing "pack up your troubles ir your old kit bag and smile" and end vUli "the Stars and Stripes will wave years to come."
