By Associated Press to The Review London, Sunday Jan. 12.—(Germany)—The armistice between the contending factions at Berlin has been broken snd fighting has been resum ed, according to Copenhagen advices received here. The Spartacans are holding part ot the Tageblatt building it ls said. Reports from Berlin indicate, lt la reported that the Spartacan forceB have lost 1300 killed since the out break of the revolution and that there are many more wounded. Government troops numbering 13,- 000 arrived in Berlin on Saturday but with the strengthening of Its military forces tbe cabinet is reported to be losing Its . political Influence among the masses. Twenty-eight mass meetings were planned for today at Berlin for the purpose of "off setting this trend." These meetings which were to be ad dressed by ministers and party lead ers, were expected to lead to a renew al of the collisions with the Spartacans. It is reported that several banks and shops were plundered by mobs on Saturday and that great armed crowds are continually parading the streets. Spartacan leaders had been able to conclude an armistice on fairly even terms. It was stipulated that the government troops should not be re-ln- forced during the truce nor resume operations without a half day's notice The capture of the Vorwaerts building is considered rather important strategically. Tbe plant is not in the group of other newspaper offices lea By Associated Press to Ths Review Columbus, O., Jan. 13.—-James M. Cox, Democrat, and Ohio's fifth war governor entered upon his third term of office at noon today. Before a joint session of the two houses of the legislature he took the oath of office. Chief Justice Hugh Nichols of the Ohio supreme court administered the oath and presented the governor with his third commission as Ohio's chief executive. Immediately upon his induction into office, Governor Cox delivered personally, bis biannual message to the general assembly. He spoke on problems touching reconstruction, rehabilitation, snd taxation. He talked of Americanization, the question of the requirements of returned soldiers, and rehabilitation being among paramount Issues confronting the legislators. . Governor Cox at the inauguration ceremonies was attended by a number of young veterans of the European war. Invalided home Instead of the usual staff of officers of the Ohio National Guard. Recommendations Msde. A summary of the recommendations as advocated by the address follow: 1—That.means be found and methods provided to bring financial relief to county, municipal and school governments without breaking down the principle of the Smith one per cent. law. 2—That prohibition of the sale of liquor be strictly enforced, the enforcement to be with the public officers ln local communities in the first Instance. That a vigilant eye should be kept on enforcement by the state, and power of removal from office should be given the governor ln case of delinquency. 3—That congress be petitioned to provide for "transporting across the seas, with no privilege to return" of German propagandists now Interned after they have been given the right of appeal from sentence which they are now serving and found to be disloyal, and that the statute books of Ohio be purged of pro-German laws. 4—Thst the Ohio National Guard be re-established under existing laws, when the Ohio troops now in federal service are mustered out. These are the high spots of the message of more than 10,000 words which was read to the legislators, assembled in Joint session, immediately following the governor's inaugural ceremon- whlch ARMED GUARDS PATROIJTBEETS Forces Against the Bolshevist Movement Strengthened by Authorities. NO SERIOUS CLASHES HAVE BEEN REPORTED Railway Held at Rosario. but lies deeper into Spartacan terri tory and tbe headquarters at the central police. Its capture therefore interferes with the Spartacan communi cations with out lying posts. The Vorwaerts building was badly damaged by artillery fire. The arrest of George Ledebour leader of the Independent socialists Is looked upon as significant as a complete break in relations with the cabinet and presumably the end of the clandestine negotiations looking to a compromise of existing difficulties by agreement for the disappearance of particularly objectionable persons on both sides and the postponement oi the elections for the nation assembly. There is no confirmstion of the re port that Dr. Liebknecht has been killed. He has, however, faded from sight with Chief ot Police Elchhorn His disappearance may have given rise to reports of his death or arrest Spartacan forces outside of Berlin bave been able to a certain extent to overcome government forces. At Lautsch, near Liepsig they are report ed to hare disarmed three trait-load of troops on their way to Berlin. The governor opened with a tribute to the soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice and those who pledged themselves to do so if necessary, and then plunged into the subject of finance, "The pressing problem before the legislature ls that of providing financial relief to counties, municipalities and school districts, and authorizing the means of restoring to the state the revenues which will be lost through the prohibition amendment," said the governor. This loss of revenue was estimated by the governor at $6,500,- 000. A concrete plan of taxation to increase revenues, the governor pointed out, must await decision ot the supreme court on the classification tax amendment. The governor pointed out that the government of Ohio has been operated at a lower per capita cost than Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Indiana. The message recommended a change ln the state budget system by constitutional amendment. adopting the plan of budgets operates ln municipalities. Touching on the subject of a state military force to take the place of the National Guard, the governor said no legislation wlll be necessary to reestablish a National Guard after the 37th Division (formerly the Ohio National Guard) returns. This can be done with federal aid under the National Defense Act, which is stiu in Trains on Central Argentine effect, the governor said, the federal' government providing guns, artillery, equipment and clothing and $1.00 a week for attendance at drill. To embark along new lines such as the establishment of a state constabulary, the governor paid, would throw the entire burden of expense upon the state. Recommendations were made by the governor for a strong health organization in the state and the establishment of sanitary districts either by counties or groups of counties. The report of the commission on health and old age Insurance was recommended for "careful study", no action being suggested. Tbe new penitentiary farm project at London was lauded and the humanitarian policy and Indeterminate sentence law operated under the new state board of clemency act was strongly approved. Discussing workmen's compensation, the governor announced that as evidence of the soundness of the law he had directed the Industrial Commission to have an actuarial audit of the fund made, and that the Ohio Federation of Labor, the Manufacturers Association and the State Auditor be consulted in the employment of a competent actuary. lt was recommended by the governor that the appropriation made by the legislature two years ago of $90,000 to build a borne for crippled children be continued. Tbe appropriation will lapse July 1st unless action is taken. That an appropriation should be made promptly to take care of claims ot stock raisers for animals slaughtered because of disease also was recommended by the governor. These claims were before tbe last legislature and were Included ln the sundries bill which was defeated on the closing day of the session. The governor recommended an addition to Oblo State university and the erection of dormitories for women. He explained that while trustees of the university recognized the desirability of tbe extension of the college other things were regarded by them as more pressing. "To this view I cannot subscribe," raid the governor. He said that the trustees bad not asked for an extension. The legislature was asked to give increased attention to Wllberforce university as a m_rk of recognition Of the service of the negro race ln the war. Ths governor suggested the purchase of additional lands for the school snd that an agricultural course be added. Complete reorganization of the school was suggested. The governor urged the co-operation of local sub-divisions ln making the year 1919 one of great progress in the building of good roads. He estimated that there will be available for tbls purpose at least five and one-half millions of dollars in addition to four million dollars worth of contracts yet to be finished.

By Associated Press to The Review Paris, France, Bunday, Jan. 12.--- America has Informed the allied governments, according to the Temps, that lt ls ready to send an American Expeditionary Force to Poland. This, the paper says, will enable them at least to do the supporting of the Polish divisions on the west front and enable the Poles to victoriously resist the Bolshevists. In discussing today's meeting of the supreme lnter-allied council, the Temp* says that while the conditions to be laid down for the renewal of the armistice between the allies and Germany were the subject of most of the discussions, the sending of military assistance to Poland was also taken up. In an editorial on this subject th* newspaper says that lt considers lt "ln- dispensible that .the two Polish divisions now In France should be sent to Poland and be supported by a certain number of allied detachment* which would be able to occupy the railroad from Danzeig to Thorn, thus maintaining communications wltb th* west. France, January 13.—The council of the peace con- its session too- up the question of the procedure for the coming congress session. The discussion dwelt largely upon the number of delegates to represent each power. The French program fixed the numbers variously at live, three, two and one representatives according to the part played by the nation in the war. brought forth many objections and went without ratification. lt ls hoped that the council today will be able to finish ihe discussion ot the questions regarding the extension of the armistice began yesterday and that lt perhaps also will reach an agreement on the peace conference program If so, lt is probable (hat the first preparatory meeting wlll be held Tuesday afternoon by the plenlpotentarles of the five great powers, tbe United Slates, France, Ureal Britain, Italy and Japan. The proceedings yesterday were for the most part in English and were spoken by Premier Clemenceau of France. The first business before the supreme war council when lt reassembled tbls afternoon was the settlement ot the question of representation in the first session of the Interallied conference. It is still unsettled what .nations wHl be represented ox the number of delegates which will be allotted te each, tt has developed, however, that China will not be represented by Japan but will have ber own delegation. Efforts of the French press to bring to the fore the question of the status of entente and American troops In Russia and the advisability of sending such troops into Poland to check the Bolshevik advance, It ls understood have been without success so far. The United States It ls said, will not consent to accept ln principle or as a military policy the task of using American forces In Poland or Russia in larger numbers than already are employed. NOTICE, MOOSE 1 MENT AT MOOSE CLUB WEDNESDAY EVENING. _J> Bailey's Dancing School Regular class and dance tonight. Beginners class Tuesday at 7:00 o'clock. Regular claaa at 8:00. By Associated Press to The Review Paris, France, Jan. 13.—The flrst actual session of the peace campaigns ls being held today although it ls officially designated as one of the series of the conversation fof laying the ground work for tbe structure which wlll later be presented to the formal assembly of the delegates of all the nations. Today's meeting will probably deal with the important question of the campaign by which peace campaigns will function. It is also expected to make a start toward a decision on tbe question uppermost ln tbe public eye—whether the sessions Will be under the full observation of the world or whether they will be secret. Nothing has developed to alter the statement that the American delegates are primarily concerned wtth the creation of a league of nations and tbe making of a just peace. Territorial ambitions, local quarrels and rivalry for economic advantages among the European delegates are secondary in the minds of the Americans who are concerned only with the assurance that these details, wben worked out, wlll square with the principles to be laid down for the preservation of peace. Reports are that the American delegation has agreed on a working plan for a league of nations and that lt will be one of tbe first things to be laid before congress. All appearances point in this direction. It' waa felt that such a- procedure, besides having a tactical point, would show desirable deference to the European statesmen having plans to submit. At tbe same time lt ls known that Mr. Wilson has selected five men connected with the American mission, recognized experts ln International law, to draw up a tentative plan which he could compare witb its own idea. Out of the whole lt was hoped to frame some concrete proposition representing the best ideas of the American delegation. These men have not finished their work and unless the president, without consultation has prepared a plan which he is willing to put forward n& that of the United States, there is now no such thing as an accepted plan. It ls recalled by an International lawyer working on the problem that all projects of this sort are to a certain extent inspired by precedent and that it is always desirable to utilize what ls available from tbe work of previous men who have struggled on these plans to prevent war. Those studying the problems turned to tbe proceeding* of the Hague conference, especially the second and it wtfl*-**rfC-_d wben t-. pfeeect peace campaigns got under way. that n groat dPal of the structure of that conference will be utilized. It Is probable, that with this will be coupled the plan of William J. Ilryan, calling for a year's investigation of disputes before a declaration of war. This latter feature ls one of tho very definite things that Mr. Wilson ls understood to bave in mind. American International lawyers ara convinced that the great battle of wita will come in the discussion of whatever machinery ts proposed to lessen the probability of war. Not all ot them believe that the result of thla peace conference will make war Impossible but they wero sanguine that It will make armed conflicts more difficult. Their principal concern la that the structure of the agreement, whether it is called a league of nations or something else, shall not be framed, like The Hague conventions in qualifying phrases (In popular terminology "loop boles") which would undermine the whole structure. President Wilson aud his commissioners aro working on tbe theory that Great Britain, France, Italy and tha rest of the world wants some new machinery which will prevent war. Upon such a determination they are fundamentally agreed. The business of conversations which begin today is to find a common ground upon which all can unite for such a purpose. Upon the further details the United States Is said to be unconcerned, further than lo expect a fulfillment of covenants and that details of the work shall be ln agreement with the principles al* ready announced. It was reported some time ago that the most that was hoped for before Mr. Wilson's return to the United States ls a general agreement on broad principle*. There Is no reason now to change. AS TO PROGRESS Furnaces Going In In Number of U. 8. House*. Collins and Vaughn of Columbua who bave the contract for the building of bouses for the government for tbe U. S.
