ARMISTICE COMPLETE MILITARY SUSPENSION 9, Bulgaria Agrees to Evacuate All Territory Now Holds in Greece and Serbia; Gives Allies Control of Navigation on Danube; Country Ceases To Be Belligerent. BULLETIN. 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. GIVES CONTROL OF NAVIGATION. 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 operations. 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. MEANS MILITARY SURRENDER. The Associated Press learns that the military occupa tion of Bulgaria will be entrusted to British, French and Ital ian forces and the evacuated portions of Greece and Serbia, respectively, to Greek and Serbian troops.

The armistice be tween Bulgaria and the allies was signed last night, a Salonika dis patch states. General rranchet D Esperey, the allied commander-in-chief in Mace donia, signed for the allies and the Bulgarian delegates for their gov ernment. Instructions have been given by the government to Gen eral D'Esperey to proceed immedi ately to the execution of the con ditions of the armistice. The actual suspension of hostili ties immediately followed the sign ing of the armistice, but it is noted that this suspension '. pphes only to Macedonian hostilities against 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. The armistice, La Liherte de clares editorially, was signed with the full consent of King Ferdinand. It prints a denial of a report that he had taken refuge in Vienna.

Chinamen Enforce Protest Against Feature in Show The mayor of San Francisco tele--graphed a' protest to Mayor Smith Monday against certain features of the "Chinatown" show, which is one of the attractions of the Ak-Sar-B'en carnival. This protest supplemented one which has been made to the Oro prietor of the carnival, the man ager of the show, and the carni val officials by the Chinamen of Omaha. Last night a committee of 5China men accompanied City Attorney Frank Weaver to the grounds and got a promise from Con T. Ken nedy, owner of the shows, to elim inate certain objectionable f atures.

Paris, Sept. 30. Between the Aisne and Vesle rivers French troops made important progress on a front of about seven and a half miles, the war office announces to night. Italian units operating north of the Aisne carried Soupir. General Gouraud's troops fight ing in Champagne this afternoon were only a 1,000 yards south of Monthois, from where they com mand a view of the valley of the Aire eastward toward Grand Pre. The advance of the French and Americans on both sides of the Ar gonne forest therefore appeared to have put the Germans into another pocket, from which the valley of the Aire is the only avenue of es cape. Grand Pre .and Vouziers each is distant only about seven miles from Monthois. With the French Army in Cham pagne, Sept. 30. General Mangin's troops continued their advance this morning on the Chemin Des Dames while on the right General Bearthe lot attacked, crossing the Vesle river at Goulot farm. He ook the village of Legrand Hameau and ad vanced nearly two miles north of Les Venteaux and reached the south ern edge of the village of Montigny. Berthelot's attack appears likely to derange the German plans and hasten the retirement of the en emy. South of St. Quentin the enemy delivered fierce counter-attacks in a vain effort to recapture Hill 88. The reaction on the front of Gen eral Gouraud's army was also very violent in the neighborhood of Sainte-Marie-A-Py. 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 burg line, but have brought the fighting at some points close enough to the secondary line of defense to make that also look pre carious.

I the District of Columbia, NATIONS BIG DRAFT LOTTERY IS BEGUN 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: Number 1 is 322, 7277, 6708, 1027, 16,169, 8366, 5366, 1697, 7123. Number 10 is 2781, 9783, 6143. 10,086, 438, 904, 12,368, 1523, 7512, 6360.

The -confiscated liquor was con cealed in two suit cases and two hand 'grips, and the whisky bottles were individually wrapped in a Kansas City newspaper. Revolution in Germany After War, Says Gerard San Francisco, Sept. 30. "There must be no negotiations without oc cupation," James W. Gerard, for mer American ambassador to Ger 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" ALLIES VICTORIOUS ON SIX GREA T FR ON TS -9 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."

SENATE FAILS TO REACH VOTE ON SUFFRAGE BILL Outcome of Action on Amend ment Still in Doubt; Pres ident Makes Personal Appeal. 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 (Continued on Page Two, Column One.) , By Associated Press. 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. OPENS DOOR TO AUSTRIA-HUNGARY. V 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. FRENCH CAPTURE USKUB. 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. AMERICA WILL TAKE REPRISALS, WORD TO HUNS 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.
