The German Government has received the conditions of the armistice. After a blockade of fifty months those conditions, especially the surrender of the means of trainsport and the sustenance of the troops of occupation, would make it impossible to provide Germany with food, and would cause the starvation of millions of men, women, and children, all the more as the blockade is to continue. We had to accept the conditions. But we feel it our duty to draw President Wilson's attention most solemnly and with all earnestness to tho fact that the enforcement of these conditions must produce amongst the German people feelings contrary to those upon which alone the reconstruction of the community of nations can rest guaranteeing a just and XXII. t0 tha Allies and the United states of all submarines (including all submarine Hnnu XXXIII.

THE KING, AND THE PREMIER. THANKSGIVING AT ST. PAUL'S. London, Monday Night. The maroons that in tho had nights of the past beat like blows on the drum of Fate gave the news to London at elcveni. o'clock this morning, and sounded tho overture of rejoicing. This idea of using the maroons came right out of the humorous mind of London, and the once-terrible sound was like a huge Cockney chuckle of delight. The guns boomed over tho heavy grey sky, and everybody knew that the last guns had been fired on the home front. Before the sound had died away innumerable people everywhere rushed" into the streets from house, factoiy, and workshop, and children helter-skelter from the schools crying "Tho war is over!" In a few minutes all over London tho littlo boys in red with the bugles, who used to send iis to bed when the Gothas had gone, were starting out blowing the cheery All clear for tho war. These chubby littlo angels of goodwill were greeted everywhere with affectionate laughter as they blew away the four years' nightmare and all its honors. The trains on all the lines carried on the note with a wheezy shriek of delight. The fat tugs on the river tried to play a tune on one note, and with all these noises mingled the first thin wail of cheers that in a very short time grew loud enough to drown the maroons. The Summons of the Bells. Then the church bells, that wo have never dared to ring but once on any great day of war, burst into a confident ringing, Big Ben over nil, letting themselves go, like all London below them. Tho bells acted like a beaten tin summoning a swarm of bees. Looking from a Fleet Street window it was curious to seo how instantaneously the swarm rushed out. Tho crowd gathered momentum in a most extraordinary way. In five minutes thcro was not an office window without a glaring new flag, till tho street looked as if prepared for a mediaeval pageant. Hawkers appeared as from trap-doors with armfuls of hand-banners. The school children each had one in a twinkling, and went singing and dancing westward, leading a long procession from oast to west that went on getting busier and more cheerful all day. Like magic tho 'buses converted themselves into moving grandstands for the show. Within ten minutes I saw on the hood of a bus over the driver an officer, a private, a Wren, and a W.A.A.C. dancing a peace dance. Xobody paid any fares indeed very soon the conductresses gave up hope of collecting them. Motor-cars in a steady stream came along, with people sticking to every inch of them like flies on treacle. Inside might be a small selection of the Allies, somi dark Italian officer with cameo face, a blonde English staff officer, a land girl on the bonnet, all mixed up with accretions of Australians wearing Union Jacks instead cf their slouch hats, a gorgeous Indian in a turban, and perhaps a bright blue Frenchman. A little It ter the munition workers joined the throng, doing the solemn Fast End dance down the Strand or clustered in the heavy army waggons, and all this motley mob went shouting, waving, in complete abandonment, down towards Whitehall, wounded soldiers with Sags draped over their hospital blue stamping cheerily after.
