MAGE EIGHT. gag BUTOHINSOH y.fiw-ik fftfESDAtf, SEPTEMBER 17, 1918. V m WHAT IS THE NEXT MOVE? Just Who! Will the Cenlral Powers Try (he Next Time AS A PI-ACE OI-PENSIVU? Some Ollicinls in Washington believe That the Austrians May Quit. Washington, Sept. 17-The answer of lh" United Sliili'H f.ovi rtt- mrnt 10 ill" peace propo.-'als advanced by Aueti iii Hunr-an - an unconditional n-ji'itiun w.i.' tn:};iy before Uii' world. Th" reply b-stird by Secretary Lansing last night upon UII- thoriyution til President Wilson, almost iinni"[l[;il"ly upon delivery of the Austrian eonniHinienlion by Uio Swedish minister Fp ":iks for nil 111" nutioMK arrayed agains-l tin 1 Central Powers in 1.1 1 r- belief of officials to day. The text of Ihc answer constitutes one of tho ^fi<tri( important notes recorded in American diplomatic his­ tory. Atlcr stating that "the AjnICed Stales feels that there is only one reply which It can nuike to the suggestions of the Imperial Austro-Hun- garinn 'government/' President Wll; son sol. forlli the position of the rnltcd Stalls government in o ein- glo sentence, us rollowa: Can't Be Considered. "It liaa repeatedly and with entire candor stated (he terms upon which lh" United Slates would consider peace and can and will entertain' no pioposnls for a conference upon a matter concerning which It has mnde its position and purpose BO plain," Kven though the other nations Allied with the United States may make separate answers to the Austrian feeler, it was considered assured today that J'n.'sid"nt Wilson had sounded the keynote and that other replies -would be similar In content anil e<iuall> decisive in their I ejection of the proposal. What Next? Willi the liist of the expected new series of peace bids of the Central Powers having met a flat rejection speculation turned today to the course of action to be followed by officials in llormany and Austida-tiun- cary. It was believed in some circles thai these officials would now turn to their war-worn people pointing out that all that can be done to bring relief In the suffering of war ha* been accomplished and again attempt to phu:e the entire blame lor tin- continuance of the war upon I lie Allies and the United States. In the opinion of other officials, not so numerous,'it was believed that Austria through submission of lire proposal and Its rejection, was prepared to take the next step—a withdrawal from tier alliance with Germany, Turkey and Bulgaria and a complete acceptance of the terms laid down by President Wilson.

One of the prettiest booths this year is that of the v. tv. C. A., which •wns provided by the I'oguos-Wrlght Dry (looils Company. The booth is supposed to represent the cbeerluess of a V. W. hostess house at one of the cantonim-nts. Although Iho furnishings aro perhaps richer than •would be found In one of the hostess houses, it gives one a little bit of an idea juBt what the hostess house must mean to the (soldier so far removed from overythlng pertaining lo home life. The tables, chairs and couch were furnished by the Shaffer furniture Company and the Hutchinson Paint and Decorating Company donated the wall paper and other fur- nlshlugs. Literature pertaining to the War Work campaign which la lo be pyt on this fall, Is given out, demonstrating the work which tho Y. W.

An exhibit belonging to the Bureau of Markets nniler liie auspices of the Department or Agriculture, while not particularly attractive at first, is one that every housewife is or should he interested in Heretofore there has been no specific unit of measurement for basket* used by fruit growers and .gradually the buskou grew smaller and smaller. The llureau of Market* lias established standards of \i pints, pints and quarts which are the only sizes that can be used hereafter, whenever the housewile orders a .basket of fruit she will be assured that she gets full standard measures. An Interesting cage of trained carrier pigeons win be seen at the government exhibit this year. These pig- ejbns were scU-euil (rum healthy, swift birds. These birds through their dumb devotion bring back messages concerning men at the front who could not be brought in many instances in any other way, because the barrage of fire often completely wipes out the telegraph wiles.
