SALEM, OREGON, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER
REPUBLICANS CLAIM "TWO

UNITED STATES SENATE

By L. C. Martin,
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Washington, Nov. C Tuesday's
congressional election, on the face of
early returns, bids fair to inject a new
and interesting element into the
American-allied peaee program.
Republicans have been outspokenly
against several of President Wilson 's
fourteen peace terms. These peace
terms, with reservations, have now been
adopted by thosllies as the basis of
peace. Any peace treaty must be rati
fied by two-thirds of the senate, so if
republicans control they could forco
amendment of any peace program.
Republican victory, the face of
President Wilson's direct appeal to the
people for a voto of confidence, is con
strtted by republican leaders as endorse
ment of their views on the prpsident's
Republicans claim fifty senators, forty-nine

A proclamation issued by the German government

The British during the night advanced to within 4
miles and a half of Maubeuge.
The French, after maintaining contact with the Ger

along the whole front from the Sambre-to the Ardennes

several points, capturing Barzy, Marfontaine, Voharies
and Barby, and reached the outskirts of Lametz -and La

On the left of the American first army the French

isolating those towns, and carried their lines to within
eight miles of Sedan and eleven miles of Mezieres.
The Americans, enlarging their gains along the east
