Paris, Sept. 30. French cavalry have entered Uskub,
according to official advices from Saloniki.
By Associated Press.
London, Sett. 30. The armistice concluded with Bul
garia by the ei nte allies is a purely military convention
and contains no -ovisions of a political character.
Bulgaria agiees to evacuate all the territory it now
occupies in Greece and Serbia, to demobolize her army im
mediately and surrender all means of transport to the allies.
Bulgaria also will surrender her boats and control of
navigation on the Danube and concede to the allies free
passage through Bulgaria for the development of military
All Bulgarian arms and ammunition are to be stored
under the control of the allies to whom is conceded the right
to occupy all important strategic points.
The Associated Press learns that the military occupa

respectively, to Greek and Serbian troops.
' The armistice means a complete military surrender 'and
Bulgaria ceases to be a belligerent.

Armistice Signed.
Paris, Sept. 30. The armistice be

signed last night, a Salonika dis

General rranchet D Esperey, the
allied commander-in-chief in Mace

Bulgarian delegates for their gov

given by the government to Gen

The actual suspension of hostili

that this suspension '. pphes only

Bulgaria and that it in no way
affects Macedonian hostilities which
the allied v armies will continue
against Austria-Hungary, Turkey
and the German contingents sent
to that locality.

Paris, Sept. 30. Between the

troops made important progress on
a front of about seven and a half
miles, the war office announces to
night. Italian units operating north

General Gouraud's troops fight

were only a 1,000 yards south of
Monthois, from where they com
mand a view of the valley of the

Americans on both sides of the Ar

have put the Germans into another
pocket, from which the valley of
the Aire is the only avenue of es

miles from Monthois.

Berthelot's attack appears likely to
derange the German plans and
hasten the retirement of the en

delivered fierce counter-attacks in
a vain effort to recapture Hill 88.
The reaction on the front of Gen

The diminished resistance in
front of General Mangin's troops
confirms the fact that the enemy is
making a systematic retirement.
This retreat, to which the Germans
are endeavoring to give essential
elasticity by vigorous intermittent
defenses here and there, seems like
ly to extend. The rapid succession
of Heavy blows the allies have 'dealt
from the sea to the Meuse have not
only greatly shaken the Hinden

enough to the secondary line of

I the District of Columbia,
President Wilson Draws First
Capsule, Number 322; the
Drawing Will Continue
Through Today.
By Associated Press.
Washington, Sept. 30. The draw
ing of order numbers for the 13,000,-000-draft
registrants enrolled Sep
tember 12 was started today by
President Wilson.
Blindfolded the president groped
into the great glass lottery bowl
and drew out one of 17,000 capsules.
It contained a slip numbered 322,
thus giving to men holding that
serial number first place in their
respective classes after registrants
already classified under previous
registrations. The number was low
enough to touch the list of every
local draft board in the country ex
cept one or two of the very smallest.
Vice President Marshall drev the
second number and was followed by
16 other notables who had been in
vited to participate.
Officers and enlisted men of the
army, assisted by a corps of tellers,
then settled dojwn to the task of
emptying the bowl. Two thousand
numbers had . been drawn and re
corded before 4 o'clock, indicating
that probably 36 hours would be re
quired to complete the work. The
drawing continued almost without
interruption through the night.
Mail Master Lists.
Only the first 100 numbers were
flashed to the country by telegraph.
Because of the impracticability of
telegraphing all of the 17,000 the
press had beer asked to refrain from
sending more than 100 numbers.
The complete master lists will be
mailed as soon as the drawing is
over to district draft boards
throughout the country to be made
public by them.
The numbers In the order in
which tkey were drawn were:

Revolution in Germany
After War, Says Gerard
San Francisco, Sept. 30. "There
must be no negotiations without oc

many, declared at the Commercial
club here today in an address for
the Fourth liberty loan. i
"The United States and her allies
must force their way well into en
emy teritory despite all attempts at
peace, and must keep on going un
til Germany bows to their will,"
he said.
Mr. Gerard predicted a revolution
in Germany after the war, "that
will make the French revolution
look like a Sunday school picnic"
German Newspapers
In Hysteria Call for
Cool Heads in Crisis
Amsterdam, Sept. 30. The
German press today is hysteric
ally emphasizing that the need
for cool heads never was greater
than now. The possibility never
before entertained or visualized,
is beginning to dawn on the peo
ple that Germany may lose the
war and the suddenness of this
realization has had a bewilder
ing effect.
The Zeitung Am Mittag en
tirely approves as wholly appro
priate to the occasion the sen
sational editorial printed in Vor
waerts last week, dealing with
what would happen should an
enemy succeed in invading the
fatherland. It makes an asser
tion remarkable for this news
paper, saying: "Our govern
ment throughout this terrible
war has sedulously avoided hint
ing at this, and the other possi
bility, namely, that the war may
be lost if everybody and every
thing are not united in the ut
most effort."
"The government has thus it
self contributed to veiling the
real gravity of our position dur
ing these four years of war," the
newspaper continues. "It has
preferred to lead the nation in
blinkers past the abyss of dan
ger to our national life."

Outcome of Action on Amend
ment Still in Doubt; Pres
ident Makes Personal
By Associated Press.
Washington, Sept. 30. Although
President Wilson, in a personal ad
dress today to the senate, asked for
passage of the woman suffrage fed
eral amendment resolution a-s a vital
war measure, the senate again failed
to reach a vote. Leaders generally
hoped for a final roll call tomon
row, but the outcome admittedly
was in doubt.
Under the weight of the presi
dent's influence, advocates of the
resolution were hopeful tonight of
mustering the necessary two-thirds
majority, but leading opponents
were insistent that there would be
no defection from their ranks.
Unexpectedly intervening in the
senate fight, the president went to
the capitol at . 1 o'clock to tell the
senators why he regarded favorable
action on the resolution necessary.
Approval of the resolution, the
president said, was necessary if
America is to lead the world in
democracy, for it will be judged by
its acts.
Measure is Vital.
"It is my duty to win the war,"
said the president, "and to ask you
to remove every obstacle that stands
in the way of winning it. I tell you
plainly that this measure which I
urge upon you is vital to the win
ning of the war and to the energies
alike of preparation and of battle.
And not to the winning of the war
only. It is vital to the right solu
tion of the great problems which
we must settle, and settle imme
diately when the war is over."
After the president's address the
senate resumed debate, while lead
ers re-canvassed senators to deter
mine the effect of the president's in
tervention. Champions of the reso
lution said they could safely count
on 62 of the senate's 96 votes, or

Bulgaria is definitely out of the war and Turkey, virtu
ally cut off from communication with her allies and her ar
mies fn Palestine almost annihilated, likely soon will be
forced to sue fe-r a cessation of hostilities against her.
Meanwhile the entente allied forces from Belgium to
Verdun on six battle fronts are registering victory after
victory over the Teutonic armies, and the enemy front almost
everywhere is crumbling, notwithstanding the desperate re
sistance that is being offered on various sectors.
Seeing eventual defeat staring her in the face through
the swift progress of the Serbian, Italian, British, Greek and
French troops in the reclaiming of Serbia and the invasion of
Bulgarian territory, the Bulgars begged for an armistice,
reserving to themselves no conditions. All the territory ndw
held by King Ferdinand's. men is to be evacuated; the Bul
garian army is to be immediately demobilized and all means,
of transport inside the kingdom, even along the Danube, is
to be given over into allied hands.
Thus, in addition to the isolation of Turkey, the back door
to a direct invasion of Austria-Hungary is flung wide open
to the allies and doubtless the time is not far distant when
advantage to the full will be taken of the new avenue through
which the enemy can be reached. With the debacle in Serbia
and Bulgaria complete, the Austro-Hungarians in Albania
soon will be put to the test and when their evacuation to their
own borders is accomplished the allies will have welded an
iron semi-circle about the central powers from the Black
sea to the North sea. . '
Viewing the situation in all its aspects the success of
the great offensive in -Belgium and France, the blottifig-tmlr
of the war zone in the Balkans, the cutting off of the Turks
from intercourse with Germany and Austria-Hungary ,y each
by the long route through the Caucasus and southern Russia,
and the steady gains that are being made by the allies in
making Russia once more a factor in the struggle the dark
est days of the war seemingly are faced by the Austro-Ger-mans.
Although it had been officially announced that hostili
ties against the Bulgarians ceased at noon Monday, the
French official communication of Monday night said French
cavalry had entered Uskub, one of the most important com
munication centers in Serbia. It is not improbable therefore
that the French are still hard after the Germans, who are
known to have been fighting with the Bulgarians in this re-
? gion acting as rear guards.
U-Boat Bases in Peril.
On all the sectors under attack
from Belgium to Flanders" to the
region of Verdun the German front
is gradually bending back under the
violence of the attack of the British,
Americans, French and Belgians. In
Belgium the advance of the troops
of King Albert and of Field Marshal
Haig have pierced so deeply east
ward that Germany's submarine
bases on the North Sea are in
jeopardy of being cut off. The fa
mous Messines-Wytschaete ridge
has been captured and the allied
guns dominate the plains beyond.
Both Menin and Roulers, important
railroad junction points for the sup
ply of the German armies north and
south, are virtually in the hands of
the British and Btlgians and seem-
Washington, Sept. 30. The
American government, in reply to
Germany's threat to execute Ameri
can prisoners of war found in
possession of shotguns, todaj gave
notice that if Germany carriei1 out
any such threat suitable reprisals
will be taken.
Secretary .Lansing's reply, made
public today, declares that the use of
shotguns is sanctioned by the j ingly soon must fall
Hague conventions, ana that in
comparison with other weapons
now used in modern warfare the
shotguns used by the American
troops cannot be the subject of
legitimate r reasonable protest.

should carry out its threat in a
single instance," says Secretary
Lansing's reply, "it will be the right
and duty of the -United States to
make such reprisals as will best
