MOST POWERFUL OF
OUT OF WORLD WAR
Announce Terms of Armistice; Allies
to Accomplish Complete Occupa
tion of Important Territory.
By Associated Press.
Washington, Nov. 4. Austria-Hungary, the last and
most powerful ally of Germany, passed' out of the world
war today under terms of abject surrender.
Not only have the armed forces of the once powerful
Austro-Hungarian empire laid down their arms to await the
end of the war and peace terms dictated by the allies and
the United States, but Austro-Hungarian territoty is open
for operations against Germany. Even the t munitions of
the former ally are to be used against the kaiser's armies if
refusal to accept conditions now being prepared for them
make prolonged fighting necessary.
ARE DRASTIC CONDITIONS.
The terms which stopped the victorious advance on the
Italian front were accepted by the Austrian commander-in-
chief in the field in the name of the Vienna government ana
their execution is guaranteed by the thorough beating al
ready administered, which had converted the defeated army
into a disorganized, fleeing horde.
Even the terms imposed previously upon Bulgaria and
Turkev hardly were so drastic. In addition to all of the mili
tary precautions, the Austrians are compelled to retire from
a wide strip of territory witnin tne ooraers oi tneir empire
when the war began, surrendering all of Italia Irredentia
and thereby losing any'advantage for argument over bound
aries around a peace table.
A map suryey of the geographical lines fixed for Aus
trian evacuation shows the area is greater than that set by
the Italians as goal of their ambition when they entered the
war. AX mat ume iiaiian leauers careiuuy uuumeu uu mui-

Italians Have Landed
Men at Zara, Dalmatia
London. Nov. 4. The Italians
have landed at Zara, Dalmatia,. ac
cording to a dispatch to the Central
-News from Rome. , - , -
, . Italians Rejoice.
In decreeing Austria's surrender
terms, the supreme war council at;
Versailles has followed this outline
closely, but have enlarged on it.
Right ot occupation of these vacated
provinces is stipulated; but it is to
be noted that for the time being
civil government is to be adminis
tered by existing local civil authori
ties in co-operation with occupying
garrisons. This means the whoile
question of final disposition ot the
territory involved is left to be set
tled at the peace table. -
Italian military officers here
thrilled with pride tonight over evi
dence of final victory contained in
the armistice program.
"It is a triumph," said General
Guglielmotti, military attache at the
Italian embassy, "which hardly 10
days ago seemed far distant, but in
which Italy and her soldiers have
always had an unshakable faith,
even in the saddest moments of last
year, when they were compelled to
give way before the crushing su
periority of the German, Austrian,
Bulgarian and Turkish forces.
"From a purely military point of
view three causes have, in my opin
ion, especially contributed to the tri
umph of today, the choice of the
right moment, the efficient direction
of the httacks, and rapidity of execution.
"The happy successes of the allies
on the French front, the withdrawal
of Bulgaria and Turkey from the
war, left Austria, although with
forces greatly superior, alone
against us. The bad weather and
the snow had already begun to
make the movements and the pro
visioning of the armies in the moun
tain zone rather difficult. The same
effect was produced in the nlains
near the sea by the violent rains,
which caused the streams to rise
and overflow the lowlands.
buch conditions narrowed the
Italian front of attack and, if in a
general way they favored the de
fense, in the concrete case they
made the attack easier because such
difficulties made it impossible for
the enemy to counter attack suc
cessfully on our flanks and gave
us an opportunity to concentrate
greater forces in a narrower space.
"From the very first moment the
intention had been evident of divid
ing the Austrian army in such a
way as to separate the mountain
section from that of the plains and
possibly cut the retreat" of the Aus
trian troops. Hence the rapid and
vigorous push towards Vittorb
Veneto, Ponte Nelle Alpi, Longa
rone, which promptly . attained t' e
first aim. Hence the rapid advance
in Val Sugana, Grigno and Castel
Nuovo. , t

PROTEST ON AIR
Notifies America That Teuton
Flyers Now Assail Only
Military Objects; Wants
By Associated Press.
Washington. Nov. 4. The 'Ger
man government today notified the
United States that since October 1
its air forces have been under orders
to make bomb attacks solely against
important hostile military objects
within the immediate operations of
war on the assumption that allied
and American air forces were to re
ceive similar instructions.
The note, delivered' through the.
Swiss legation, protests that air
raids have been carried out recently
against seven German towns with
loss of life among the civilian popu
lation 'and that unless such raids
cease, Germany cannot refrain from
aerial attacks on allied territory out
side of the zone of operations.
This was the first notice received
by the American government that
such orders had been issued to the
German air forces, which have con
stantly raided defenseless cities and
towns in France, Great Britainand
Italy since the war began. The
State department -made public the
German note without comment. The
"In assuming this the German
people find themselves disappointed.
A short time ago the enemy made
bomb attacks on the German towns
of Wetvlar, Kaiserslautern, Mann
heim, Ludwigshafen, Freiburg, For
bach and VVeisbaden, claiming nu
merous victims among the civilian
population. Nor has occupied ter
ritory been spared. It is evident
that Germany can refrain from
aerial attacks on enemy territory
behind the area of operations only
if, on their side, the enemy, from
now on, will reciprocate and also re
frain from making aerial attacks
outside the area of operations.
"In the expectation that the in
tention, shared by the other side, to
further humanity and preserve im
portant objects of culture, will meet
with the understanding of the op
ponents the German government
proposes to the governments of the
ether belligerent countries that cor
responding instructions be issued
without delay to their aerial forces,
informing it of the measures taken."

New York, Nov. 4. (Special

Wilcox, former national chairman,
and many other republican leaders
at the republican headquarters.
The republicans were all jubilant.
By Associated Press.
New York, Nov. 4. Final
speeches and statements by candi
dates and party managers brought
the campaign to a close in the east
ern states tonight. Both democratic
ar.d republican leaders professed
confidence that their candidates
would win at the polls tomorrow.
The campaign, which began in
apathy, developed in its closing days
in most states into one of the most
bitterly contested jn years. The
chief issue has been the election
o.' United States senators and re
presentatives. Theappeal of Pres
ident Wilson for the 'return of a
democratic congress has bee- the
storm center of attack and counter
attack. Expect Close Race.
Democrats and republicans were
claiming tonight they would gain
seats in congress, but indications
were the result would be close ex
cept in districts where one party
normally has overwhelming major
ity. In New York party leaders are
"up in the air" because women will
vote the first time and there is no
way of knowing how they will di
vide politically. The republican
state chairman predicted Governor
Whitman would be re-elected by at
least 200,000, but democrats were
equally insistent that Alfred E.
Smith, president of the New York
City boarc of aldermen, would be
the victor, but they did not claim
so large a margin.
Contests for seats in the sena e
have occupied the voters in Massa
chusetts, Rhode Island, New Hamp
shire, Delaware, New Jersey and
West Virginia. While two "senators
will be elected, by New Hampshire,
the democrats in that state have
centered their energies upon the
election of John B. Jameson fo the
two years unexpired term of the late
Senator Gallinger. In New Jersey
which also will elect a "long" and
a "short" term senator, women suf
fragists, although they cannot vote,
have joined forces with the demo
crats to defeat David Baird, who
seeks thi "short" terms.
Massachusetts democrats profess
to be hopeful of electing former
Governor David I. Walsh, as. suc
cessor to Senator Weeks up for
another term. The contest in
West Virgina between C. W. Wat

and Major Davis Elkins, jr., son of

party leaders on the ground that he

democratic candidate for governor
in Vermont has been endorsed by
the prohibitionists while the repub
licans are standing by local option.
Comparatively little interest has
been shown in the campaign in Con

Voters Bombarded With Final
Arguments as Windup to

Chicago, Nov. 4. Voters of the
middie western states were bom
barded with final arguments tonight
as a climax to the short but inten
sive campaigns which have been
waged by candidates for state and
federal offices, which will be de
cided at the polls tomorrow.
In the senatorial contests inter
est generally centered in the Ford
Newberry contest in Michigan; the
McCormick-Lewis race in Illinois;
the attempt of Governor Capper to
supplant Senator Thompson in the
Kansas seat; the race between for
mer Governor Folk and Judge S. P.
Spencer in Missouri, and the Ken-yon.-Keyes
struggle in Iowa. Sen
?tors Robinson of Arkansas and
Nelson of Minnesota are without
major party opposition for re-election
and the re-election of Senator
Shcppard of Texas was .practically
onceded. In addition, to these
there have been contests in Ken
tucky, where Governor Stanley is
opposed by B. L. Bruner; in Ne
braska, between Senator Norris and
ex-Governor Morehead; in Okla
homa between Senator Owen and
VV. B. Johnson, and in South Da
kota between Senator Sterling and
O. V. Rineheart.
In the gubernatorial field there
have been many sharp contests
complicated by local issues in many
cases. The defection of some re
publican support from Frank B.
Willis, that party's candidate for
the executive position in Ohio,
ajjainst Governor Cox has aroused
interest in that contest. Close con
tests are also predicted in Ne
