The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - REMEMBRANCE DAY -

NEW YORK, Nov 11 – The As­so­ci­ated Press this morn­ing is­sues the fol­low­ing state­ment: Af­ter 1567 days of hor­ror dur­ing which whole civ­i­lized world has been con­fused, great­est war in his­tory ended this morn­ing at six o’clock, On­tario time. It is be­lieved terms are such na­ture to pro­tect the world from re­sump­tion of strug­gle by Ger­mans. It is as­sumed that Ar­mistice calls for de­mo­bi­liza­tion of Ger­many army, sur­ren­der of part of her fleet and dis­man­tling of rest. The terms an­nounce­ment of State Dept. did not tell any­thing of the scene of Mar­shall Foch head­quar­ters at the time the ar­mistice was signed. It was stated how­ever, that at five o’clock Paris time, sig­na­tures of Ger­many’s del­e­gates were af­fixed to doc­u­ment which blasted for­ever the dreams which em­bod­ied the world in strug­gle which has cost at very low­est es­ti­mate ten mil­lion lives.

While the cur­tain was rolling on most stu­pen­dous tragedy in mankind’s his­tory, events were mov­ing with ter­ri­ble swift­ness, in Ger­many, the na­tion about which re­volved plot and counter plot of drama. Ber­lin, Leip­sic, Stuttgart, Cologne, Ham­burg and Frank­fort are in hands of rev­o­lu­tion­ists, who last week raised red flag at Kiel.

Ger­many’s Navy is ap­par­ently scat­tered in to dis­joined units, each seek­ing sanc­tu­ary in Dan­ish ports or wait­ing in Ger­man har­bors for the lat­est turn of events.

Wurten­burg, Sch­leswig Hol­stein and Hesse, Darm­stadt have de­clared them­selves in­de­pen­dent republics fol­low­ing ac­tion taken by Bavaria.

Last Fri­day Wil­helm II., of Wurten­burg is re­ported to have ab­di­cated Sax­ony is said to be near a like dec­la­ra­tion and the rev­o­lu­tion­ists are said to be in con­trol at Dres­den.
