I will not hide from inyself your reasons and must with heavy heart deny myself your further cooperation. Hints at Reforms. "You are certain of the thanks of the -fatherland for the sacrifice you made in undertaking the chancellor's office in grave times and for the services you rendered. I desire that the German people shall more effectively than hitherto in deciding the fate of the fatherland. It is, therefore, my will that the 1 men who have been borne up by the people's trust shall, in a wide extent, cooperate in the rights and-duties of government.

All Bulgarian arms and ammunition are to be stored under the control of the allies, to whomls conCeded the right to occupy all important strategic points.

The, Associated Press learns that military occupation of Bulgaria will be intrusted to British, French, and Italian forces and the evacuated portions of Greece and Serbia respectively to Greek and Serbian troops. The armistice means a com- tiletc military surrender and Bulgaria ceases to be a belligerent. All questions of territorial rearrangements in the Balkans were purposely omitted from the convention. The allies made no stipulation concerning king Ferdinand, his position considered an internal matter, one for the Bulgarians themselses to deal with. The armistice will remain in operation until a final general peace is concluded.

It will require this much time for the Bulgarian army to be demobilized. the railways, roads, and territories transferred to the allies, and a new war front effectively constituted on the Spells Doom in Germany. Germany is expected to offer some serious resistance to allied occupation of Bulgaria, and may attempt to turn Its former ally Into another Belgium.

Field Marshal Mackensen, who has been in command of ten divisions of German troops in Roumania, is reported to have reached Sofia, the Bulger capital. German troops also reached there Friday night, according to dispatches from Berlin. Military leaders saw tonight in the surrender of Bulgaria not only the end of the Mittel dream, but the doom of the central powers. Turkey ht Bad Shape.

Oct. 1, 3 a. ITI.The Daily News says: The reemergence of Roumania if only in guerrilla warfare may confidently be anticipated, and it can hardly be doubted that Austria is privy to the Bulgarian surrender. -In any case that country is so eager for peace on any terms that it may be expected to welcome the Impetus which Bulgaria has given to the movement which so long has been engineered from Vienna." The Daily News says there is reason to believe King Ferdinand has been the chief agent in securing the armistice and it finds significance in the fact that both the king of Saxony and the king of Bavaria recently have been In Sofia and that Ferdinand himself is now In Vienna. These circumstances," it says, point to very formidable possibilities for Prussia.

They sdggest that the phase of the war that is now imminent may leave the Hohenzollern dynasty isolated with the lesser kings who have Veen its more or less unwilling fe.uclatories combined against it in order to save themselves from the disaster that now seems unavoidable. That would be a fitting overture to the final humiliation of despotism of Potsdam. There has been a tendency In this direction ever since the death of Emperor Francis Joseph and the catastrophic happenings of the last two months have now brought it to the surface." Nicolas Kyriapoulos, cashier of the Atlas Exchange National bank at Blue Island avenue and Halsted street, was shot and killed last night in front of a restaurant at 111 West North avenue. Peter Deneropoulos, part owner of the restaurant, did the shooting. lie claims Kyriapoulos and his own partner conspired to defraud him of about $30,000.

Deneropoulos and his partner, Peter Milialopoulos, own five restaurants throughout the state. After an argument in the lunchroom, Deneropoulos followed the banker outside and tired five shots into his body. Detective Sergeant Conrad Ottenger, standing on the corner. saw the shooting. Deneropoulos started up an alley and refused to halt at the policeman's order, whereupon Ottenger shot him through the left arm.

The banker was dead before the police could get him to HenrotIn hospital. He was 33 years old and lived at 550 Surf street. Deneropoulos is held at East Chicago police station.

MADRID. Sept. 30.There has been a considerable Increase in the number of cases of influenza here. King Alfonso is ill, but only slightly so. He has some fever and also is suffering from throat trouble.

Virtual quarantine for every case of Influenza in Chicago was ordered last night by Dr. John Dill Robertson, commissioner of health. Every victim of the disease is commanded to go to his home and stay there. No visitors are to be allowed. This order came quickly on the heels of the quarantining of Cook county hospital, where there are 260 eases.

sixty of which came in during the day. Also it followed the report of the West Side hospital that twenty-five of its nurses have been stricken and three are dead and the report of the Presbyterian hospital that forty of its nurses are ill with Influenza. Dr. C. St.

Clair Drake, director of the state deriartment of health, taking account of the situation. issued an order that during the epidemic all nurses aryl attendants at hospitals where there are influenza patients 'wear medicated masks. "Flu Cases Fill Hospitals. A report stating that the situation IS fast becoming acute was sent to Dr. Drake last night by Dr.

George C. Hunt, chief ambulance surgeon. The hospitals are fast filling up with influenza cases and it is feared the inroads on the personnel of the already war crippled institutions will create a grave crisis. Avoid overheated and poorly ventilated places of public assembly. Stay away from crowds.

Seek good air and shun bad air," is a warning of the board of health. A bulletin says: Influenza or la grippe is an epidemic disease. Infection is conveyed from person to person. Close contact with a. person having influenza is If you have influenza do not give it to others.

Experts probably will be sent to Chicago to aid the authorities here. Efforts also will be made to furnish a serum for use in combating the disease.

After hard fighting the British have established themselves along i the Rumilly-Cambrai road. Earlier Losses Rewon. The German opposition resulted in some losses of ground early today, but apparently this has been rewon. On the front northwest of Le Catelet German at- 1 tacks pressed the British back to 1 the outskirts of Villers-Guistain, 'while to the southwest of Le Catele similar pressure sent Field Marshal Haig's troops back to the edge of fie villIge of Bony.
