. board announced today that re
tailers' profits must be limited here
after to 2 cents on small, and 3
- cents on large oranges. A schedule
of profits for lemons and other
fruits, it was announced, will be

alleged profiteering in oranges and
lemons, the price of the former
dropped from $3 to $4 per box at

Allied Governments Now to
Determine Whether They
, Are Disposed to Accept
i ' Wilson's Principles.
Washington, Oct. 24. Germany's
plea for an armistice and peace now
is before the allied governments
which are to determine whether
they are disposed to accept Presi
dent Wilson's principles of settle
ment, to which Germany sub
scribes, and in accord with the
United States ask their military ad
visers and those of America to pre
pare the terms of an armistice
which virtually, will mean surrender
by Germany.
,'' In various public utterances the
premiers and other leaders of the
entente powers have repeatedly de
clared, that President Wilson's ,
statements in his address of last
January 8 and subsequent addresses
reflect their own views. Something
more official and binding is re
quired now, although it is regarded
here as a foregone conclusion that
this approval will be registered and
that the officers of the supreme war
council will be invoked to prepare
the fateful document which will de
file the conditions under which
Germany may secure relief from the
incessant hammering of the victori
ous allied and American armies.
Prompt Decision Predicted.
No one here today would under
take to forecast the probable time
of t final decision on Germany's
plea. It is known, however, that
the supreme war council already
has given the matter the most earn
est consideration. And in that con
nection it was recalled that there
was no delay in notifying General
D'Espernay, the allied commander
oa the Balkan front, of the terms
that should be laid down for Bul
garia when that nation asked for
armistice- The-vgeneral principles
in each case probably are similar,
but there necessarily will be a great
variance in the details, since not
only is a greater army and nation to
be dealt with, but the question of
large naval forces as well.
May Inject New Questions. ,
Certain utterances of entente
statesmen and of inspired official
organs have led to the surmise here
that, while accepting the terms laid
down by President Wilson, there
may be a disposition to inject new
matters to meet individual demands
and to propose new points based
upon ever shifting conditions. It is
believed, however, that if such
should prove the case, the new
points probably would be dealt with
in connection with final peace nego
tiations and need not delay the con
sideration of the form of armistice.
The United States already has
capable army and naval officers in
Europe prepared to deal with -the
technical questions involved in an
araiistice and if it should become

Of New York Germans
New York, Oct. 24. Eighty per
cent of the 3,800,000 foreign lan
guage speaking -residents of the
New York federal reserve dis
trict subscribed to the fourth
Liberty loan. it was an
nounced tonight by the foreign
language division of the Liberty
loan committee. Their subscrip
tions aggregated $500,000,000. Less
than 5 per cent of the German born
population of the district failed to
subscribe, it was said. Persons of
61 nationalities added their dollars
to the total. ' Especially heavy

Subsidence of Epidemic Indi
cated, However, in Health
Service Reports From
44 States.
By Associated Press.
Oyster Bay, Oct. 24. "fheodore Roosevelt sent dupli
cate telegrams tonight to United States Senators Lodge,
foindexter and Johnson in which he characterized as
"thoroughly mischevous" the 14 principles enunciated by
President Wilson if they are to be made the basis of peace.
The telegrams follow:
"As an American citizen I most earnestly hope that the
senate of the United States, which is part of the treaty mak
ing power of the United States, will take affirmative action
against a negotiated peace with Germany and in favor of a
peace based on the unconditional surrender of Germany.
"I also declare against the adop-,
tion in their entirety of the 14
points of the president's address of
last January as offering a basis for
a peace satisfactory to the United
States. Let us dictate peace by the
hammering guns and not chat about
peace to the accompaniment of the
clicking of typewriters.
Wilson's Points "Mischievous."
"The language of the 14 points
and the subsequent statements ex
plaining or qualifying them is neith
er straightforward nor plain, but if
construed in its probable -sense
many, and possibly most, of these
14 points are thoroughly mischiev-
ous ana ii maae me uasis oi a peace
such peace would represenj, not the
unconditional surrender of Ger
many, but the conditional surrender
of the United States. Naturally
they are entirely satisfactory to
Germany and equally naturally they
are in this country satisfactory to
every pro-German and pacifist and
socialist and anti-American so
called internationalist.
"The only peace offer whkh we
should consider from Germany at
this time is an offer to accept such
terms as the allies, without our aid,
have imposed on " Bulgaria. We
ought to declare war on Turkey
without an hour's delay. The fail
ure to do so hitherto has caused the
talk about the world safe for de
mocracy to Jook unpleasantly like
mere insincere rhetoric,. While the
Turk is left in Europe and per
mitted to tyrannize over the sub
ject people the world is thoroughly
unsafe for democracy.
Should Be Staunch Ally.
, "Moreover, we should find out
what the president means by contin
ually referring to this'merely as the
associate instead of the ally of the
nations with whose troops our own
troops are actually brigaded in bat
tle. If he means that are something
less than ally of France, England
Italy, Belgium and Serbia, then He
means we are something less than
an enemy of Germany and Austria.
We ought to make it clear to the
world that we are neither an mi
trustworthy friend nor an irresolute
foe. Let us clearly show that we do
not desire to pose as the umpire be
tween our faithful and loyal friends
and our treacherous and brutal -enemies,
but that we are the staunch
ally of our friends and the staunch
foe of our enemies.
"When the German people repu
diate the Hohenzolerns, then and
nofuntil then, it will be time to dis
criminate between them and their
masters. I hope the senate with
the house will pass some resolution
demanding the unconditional sur
render of Germany as our war airrf
and stating that our peace terms have
never yet been formulated or ac
cepted by the people and that they
will be fully discussed with our al
lies and made fully satisfactory to
our own people before they are dis
cussed with Germany."
Washington, Oct. 24. Further
subsidence of the influenza epidemic
over the country was indicated in
reports received today Jby the pub
lic health service from 44 states. The
situation still is serious in many
localities, however, and more par
ticularly in the larger cities.
There was practically no change
today in army camps, 2,772 new
cases being reported, a decrease of
one from yesterday's total. Pneu
monia cases decreased from 742 yes
terday to 699 today and deaths were
307 against 327 the day before,. The
total influenza cases reported now
is 298,275; pneumonia cases 48,328
and deaths 16,174.
Camps Dix, New Jersey, and
Grant, Illinois, where influenza epi
demics have been particularly se
rious, did not report a single new
case, while only seven were re
ported from Camp Devens, Massa
chusetts. The. largest number of
new cases reported today was 123
-t Camp McClellan, Alabama.
Over the south and east general
improvement is shown, but the dis
ease still is active in most of the
large cities, including New York,
where 759 deaths reported today,
Vaccine Distributed in Illinois.
Chicago, Oct. 24. Great improve

throughout Illinois, was reported to

Dr. Drake said that vaccine was

state and that hospitals and anti

Republicans Object to Fixing
by Peace Treaty or Any
Other Pact Domestic
Policy of U. $.
Washington, Oct. 24. Republican
contentions that the third clause in
President Wilson's 14 peace terms,
providing for the removal of econ
omic barriers, is a free trade plank,
furnished the vehicle of a political
debate in the senate today. Sen
ator Thomas of Colorado insisted
that the president merely meant
there should be no prohibitive or
irritating tariffs. Senator Watson
of Indiana and other republicans
declared the republican party ob
jected to fixing by peace treaty or
any other treaty the domestic policy
of the United States.
Senator Thomas referred to pro
tests by Chairman Hays of the na
tional republTcan committee and
others against contentions made by
democratic leaders that a republican
victory Would be interpreted by the
kaiser and our enemies abroad as
a repudiation of President Wilson.
Cites 1898 Precedent.
Asked by Senator McCumber, re
publican of North Dakota, if the
last senatorial election in Wiscon
sin when Senator Lenroot, a re
publican, was elected had any influ
ence, one way or the other, on Ger
man 'people, Senator Thomas said
he did not think so, but added there
is a vast difference between a soli
tary contest and a general election,
he read, extensive abstracts from
speeches by Colonel Roosevelt, for
mer President Harrison and Sen
ator Lodge in 1898, in which they
urged the re-election" of a republican
congress to support President Mc
Kinley on the grounds that not to
do so would give cheer and com
fort to Spain and would in effect be
a repudiation of his conduct of the
"If that was true in 1898, it is true
in 1918," declared Senator Thomas.
"It is more eminently true because
the war is not over and because a
comparison between the wars makes
the other one insignificant."
benator Smith of Michigan, re
publican, referred to conditions
preceding the Spanish war and de
clared that President Cleveland had
refused to permit this country to
declare war on Spain.
Calls Cleveland Party's Destroyer.
"Cleveland was greatly admjred
by the republicans," said Senator
Thomas. "He was a very good
man, but in my opinion he will go
down in history as the arch de
stroyer of the democratic party."

said that President McKinley after

British Troops Take 7,000
Prisoners and More Than
100 Guns in Drive Be
yond Scheldt.
London, Oct. 24. The
British troops have overcome
the enemy along the whole
front between the Sambre
Oise canal and the Scheldt
and their advance is being
continued, Field Marshal
Haig reports from headquar
ters tonight.
Since yesterday morning the
British have taken 7,000 prisoners
and more than 100 guns.
Pans, Oct. 24. French troops
have crossed the Oise canal op
posite Longchamps, according to
the war office announcement to
night. They have also made an im
portant advance between the Oise
and Serre rivers.
By Associated Press.
On several of the most important
sectors in France from the region
of Valenciennes to the east of Le
Cateau; north of Laon, between the
Oise -and the Serre rivers, and on
the front from .the Meuse river to
the vicinity of Grandpre battles of
a sanguinary character are being
fought. In these the British,
French and American troops every
where are making progress aginsj
the stubbornly resisting Germans.
In Belgium the allied forces, ow
ing to the rapid retreat of the enemy
and the flooded condition ot the
lowlands, have not yet been able to
come itno full fighting contact with
the Germans, but doubtless a few
days more will see them again hard
after their quarry and driving him
farther toward his own trontier.
Valenciennes Being Enveloped.
South of Valenciennes the British
third and fourth armies with which
Americans are co-operating have
continued successfully to press on
ward with Mons and Maubeuge
their objectives. Valenciennes is
gradually being enveloped, and soon
is destined to be pinched out of the
fighting line by turning movements
from the north and south in ' the
manner generally adopted in the
present day tactics when it is more
desirable to envelop a strong posi
tion than to waste life and limb in
reaching the objective by frontal attacks.
The Germans in this region con
tinue to use numerous machine gun
to retard the advance of Field Mar
shal Haig's men and the artillery of
both sides is violently active. Brit
ish aviators are materially aiding
the offensive by dropping bombs be
hind the line or flying low and cut
ting troop formations to pieces with
machine gun fire.
Blotting Out Salient.
South of the Oise river the
French are making sharp thrusts
against the enemy with the inten
tion of clearing out the entire tri
angle between Flavigny and Mont
cornet and taking all the railroad
lines within this region and also
blotting out the salient that still ex
ists there. The Germans are strong
ly counter-attacking on all the
fronts of attack, but the French
have warded off their efforts to re
gain lost territory and have gained
ground south of Montcornet, one of
the principal railway junctions fin
this region.
North of Grandpre and north of
Verdun, in the sector lying between
the Meuse river and north of the
Argonne forest, the Americans have
cut further arid deeply -into the ene
my's line, despite the continued ex
tremely heavy Use of machine guns
and artillery by the Germans.
American aviators are dropping
bombs behind the enemy lines,
while enemy airmen are returning
the compliment by bombing towns
inside the American front. ,

Military Question; Com
manders Can Decide, Is
Off icial Comment. ,
Paris, Oct. 24. President Wil
son's vply to Germany was re
ceived "in competent quarters here
today with entire 'approval.
The official comment can be sum
marized as follows:
"President Wilson's latest answer
resolves the whole thing into a mili
tary question which can be decided
by Foch, Haig and Pershing.
"The situation, however, is vir
tually unchanged, though the ex
change of notes has given an insight
into affairs in Germany and has per
haps hastened her internal retorms.
The next answer will have to be a
military answer from her military
"The French people feel that the
question of the internal govern
ment of Germany is not so impor
tant as an assurance against a recur
rence of Germany's militaristic poli
cies, which precipitated the war.
Germany's Sincerity Doubted.
"We do not know how sincere
Germany is about her reforms. We
have reason to doubt the sincerity
of her aims in this direction. The
great thing for us is to make sure
that things shall not again be in the
same position as before the war.
"An armistice is almost impossi
ble, as the conditions would be so
unimaginably drastic. An armistice
would be full of danger if not
guarded by all sorts of conditions."
The feeling prevails in . general
among French officials that the lat
est note from the president of the
United States is jifst what the allies
have been wanting to force upon
the enemy.
President Wilson's reply to Ger
many was published by the news
papers here in English as well as
in a French translation at the re
quest of the authorities.

British May Capture Large

Do Not Quickly Retire
From Salient.
By Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 24. Successful
British operations on the Valencien
nes front took on new importance
to officers here today in the light
of the diplomatic situation. Field
Marshal Haig's armies are striking
savagely at the fiioge of the present
German line of resistance and the
progress already made is thought
by officers here to make it certain
that the German retirement both in
Belgium and in France will have
to be resumed without delay
South of the flew British wedge,
the French are keeping continuous
pressure aginst the enemy along the
Oise-Serre front, making it difficult
for the German commanders to dis
engage their forces from this most
exposed sector of their lines. Sue
cess of the British effort, however,
which now seems assured, would
compel a precipitate evacuation of
the Oise-Serre salient, it is believed,
for the communication system of
that front would be threatened from
the flank and rear.
Must Rectify Lines.
Reduction of the Oise-Serre
salient would mean rectification of
the lines probably as far east as
the Argonne, observers believe, and
coupled with the Franco-American
pounding there and on the Meuse,
the British advances of today and
yesterday possibly foreshadow the
retreat of the enemy to the Meuse
line. If that retirement is delayed
