THREE CENTS—DELIVERED 15c A WEEK. * REPARATION GERMANY WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY IS PLACED IT 120, This Sum Represents Approximately $30,000,000,000 and It Is Understood Germany Would Be Permitted to Issue Bonds Covering Her Indebtedness to the Allies Payable In Annual Installments. *> (By Associated -pressi PARIS, -lay 17.—It Is understood In official circles here that the Anglo- French conference at Hythe, which closed yesterday decided that the sum total which Germany should pay aa reparation would be fixed at 120,000,- 000,000 marks gold (approximately $30,000,000,000). It Is also understood that lt was decided Oermany would be permitted to issue bonds covering her indebtedness to the allies, payable in annual installments. Such action lt is pointed out, would enable France to discount a part of her claim on Oermany and permit ber to settle her debts to the United States and the allies. These de- III IRELAND TO clslons, together with the action taken postponing the Spa conference with the dormant) to June 21, comprise the definite conclusions reached by the French and British premiers and their advisers, according to the understanding here. A special conference of the allies will be held at Ostend to consider financial questions among the allies. It Is stated. This meeting will be Independent of the League of Nations conference at Brussels. The dates of these conferences remain to be fixed. The decisions thus reported have been favorably received in French circles. While the total amount to be paid as reparation is much lower than the figure France desired and Is still further short of the amount declared to be required to restore the devasted regions and pay for other damage lt is pointed out that 66,000,000,000 marks In gold which is figured as France's share would be equivalent at the present rate of exchange to nearly 240,- 000,000,000 francs ln French' paper. This, it is felt, could hardly fall to satisfy French public opinion. »> (By Associated Press) CORK.

LET CO VERBAL BROADSIDE AGAINST TIF NAVY STAFF ADVOCATES (By Associated Preas) WASHINGTON. May 17.—Secretary Daniels today let go a verbal broadside against the advocates of a general staff for the navy, declaring that they sought to "Prussianise" the nevy department and make the civilian secretary a "rubber stamp." He told the Senate committee investigating ths navy's conduct of the war "that one of Rear Admiral Sims' chief objects ln writing his letter of January 7, and bringing about this investigation was to curtail the power of the secretary and remove the navy, so far as possible from civilian control. "Running like a thread through most of the evidence that haa been given before the commute had been advocacy of the general staff for the conduct of the American navy and elimination ot civil- Ian control" said Mr. Daniels. "Some of the officers have frankly avowed their advocacy of Prussianizing the navy." "If congress believes that civilian control is a great evil," said Mr. Daniels, "If lt believed that the policy which has prevailed since the foundation of our government should be reversed and that the navy should be removed from civilian control, let it follow Sims' lead, create a general staff on the German model and name some von Tlrpltz to rule the navy. Let us have no camouflage about It. Abolish the position of | Secretary of the Navy or provide that some admiral shall fill that post with a seat In the President's cabinet. That would be the frank and open way to do lt rather than to put some Sims* in control of the nas/y. with a nominal secretary as his clerk, messenger boy and rubber stamp. "If this committee desires to raise that issue, to raise that Issue I am per fectly willing to go to congress and the country with it, and let the American people and their chosen representatives make the decision." i» NO IMMEDIATE BREAK .

ARMENIA IS HELPLESS AND MUST HAVE AID Pledge Cards and Literature Distributed In Shops and Schools, Today. The drive to raise $10,000 in this city for the Near East Relief fund started Sunday with special addresses in all the churches and distribution of pleslge cards to the congregations and to Sunday school studente. It Is urged that every man. woman and child consider lt a personal matter to give to this fund. Doubtless many persons feel that Armenia Is far away and that Alliance has little ln common with It, but ln these days of swift transportation no country ln the world Is remote from another. What affects one, ln time affects another. The influenza epidemic was an example of this. That pestilence orginated in a faraway foreign country, but it traveled until there was hardly a household ln America that was not darkened by its shadow. Armenia, the world's oldest Chrlstaln nation Is now helpless. Its people are plucky fighters and they have suffered enough persecutions to exterminate a less determined folk. Pledge cards and literature telling Armenia's plight were distributed to the manufacturing plants Saturday, and ln the schools Monday under the direction of Supt. B. K. Stanton. Posters were given out to Main street merchants today, and arrangements have been mode with theater managers to run announcements in all of the mot- Ion picture houses the coming week. There will be no house to house con- vass. All organizations, however, will be expected to contribute. The women's societies and lodges have been organised by Miss Mabel Hartzell. The great need existing ln the Near East la emphasized by the local committee In charge, Prof. B. F. Stanton, Rev. Walter K. Roush and R. 8. Kaylor and others associated with them in obtaining this city's quota. They point out that there are 800,000 Armenians, most ly women and children, who are absol utcly helpless and will need tho help of America, at least until this year's harvest Is gathered. Worker- who have Just returned "from Asia Minor say that the situation there Is desperate. One of these worker. Is Capt. George F. Hyde, who as a physician Is accustomed to sights ot suffering but he says in all his experience he has never seen anything to equal that of Armenia's present plight. "The supply of food reaching this starving mulitude last summer was not sufficient even when supplemented by such vegetables as could be raised to keep thousands from starvation. "The assistance given by the British army ln supplying food and the aid administered by the Red Cross and Ihe Near East Relief has been mogificent and heroic and it must be continued in increased measure unless the American people are willing to see another nation; wiped out. piiNFuaniie .

This Is the story of Usofa, a tiny Mt of tiuman driftwood caught in the maelstrom of war. Usofa is a little Armenian girl. One day she was a pauper in rags; the next, the petted word of an Empress. The story of her eventful six years, reads like a fairy tale. She was a child of the eastern battle area. She saw her father and mother shot down by the Turks. Terrified, the four-year-old wolf ran to hide and remained there without food until she was found by some Russian troops, who carried her away with them. She soon became a favorite ot the commanding officer, Colonel Oarofstoff, as well as with all the men who pooled a part of their scanty pay to buy the regimental baby new clothes. One day shortly before the close of the war, an aged woman visited the battle front. She went Incognito, and few knew that she was Eugenie, former Empress of the French. While there she saw little Usofa. Her mother-heart was touched. "I will take her back with me", she announced to the officers. Usofa was reluctant to leave her soldier friends and was dragged off ln tears. The good fortune of this child was learned by an official representative of the Near East Relief whleh Is caring for 250.000 homeless orphans ln'Western Asia.- There are thousands of Usofas ln Armenia but only one had a fairy princess America Is their only hope. The political situation now existing ln the Near East makes lt Impossible for any other nation to do the humanitarian work America Is doing through the Near East "Relief. This Is the only relief agenvy operating on that part of ths country, the American Red Cross having withdrawn many months ago, after having turned over its supplies to the Near East Relief. Victims of massacre and deporatlon and their homes destroyed, the survivors about 800,000 of them, mostly women and children, are looking hopefully to our country to extend the helping hand to them until they can help themselves. Alliance Is asked to give $10,000. Shall the cry of "the least of these" which now comes to us. go unheeded? TO COVE TO GAIN RELIEF E Thomas T.

ROADS SWAMPED WITH BUSINESS Great Need Is to Clear the Tracks of Non-Essential Shipments, Is Claimed. (Br Associated Press) WASHINGTON, May 17.—The nation's railroads, swamped with business and not yet on their feet after the long period of federal control turned hopefully to the government today for relief. With reports from Industrial centers showing several thousand cars are being held up at Junctions and ln transit because of Insufficient equipment and labor the Inter-State Commerce Commission, clother with brood power under the new railroad law, was expected to heed the appeal of the carriers and take charge of a situation admittedly bad. Although desperate efforts have been made ln the last week to clear up the tangle of freight, railroad officials said there was slight hope of early Improvement. The great need at the moment Is to clear the tracks of non essential shipments and open the way for the free movement of the necessities of life. Fear Closing of Plants. • So great Is the traffic congestion, according to reports and complaints from many quarters that' there is immediate danger of wholsale closing of big package plants and the consequent cut in production. Should the commission find, on the strength of reports laid before tl by the railway executives that the emergency Justifies it orders taking over virtually complete control of the movement of freight probably will be Issued today. The first step would be the Issuance of orders for shipment of coal for which Is a crying need at many points, food and perishables. The u-e of cars would be limited to these commodities but railroad men said there were more concerned with the problem of moving and unloading up wards of 200.000 cars that have caused the congestion. The possibility of curtailing passanger service has been considered hy the roads so as to expedite freight movement but officials said this would be done only as a last resort. illAGUILAR MAKES ESCAPE FROM LUTIONISTS;WAS HELD PRISONER DURING PAST WEEK Fleeing General Is Believed to Be Making His Way to Join President Carranza Who Fled Into the Mountains, and Has Not Been Located — Pursuit of Deposed Mexican Head Is Being Pressed by Rebels.

(By Associated Press) VERA CRUZ, May 17.—General Candido Aguilar, governor of the state of Vera Cms and son-in-law of President Carranza who has been virtually a prisoner of revolutionary forces near Orizaba for the past week, escap ed last night. It is believed he is trying to join Carranza who fled into the mountains near Chalchicomula on Fri day and who, bo far as known has not as yet been located. General Aguilar has with him about 300 of his followers. Pursuit of Carranza Is being vigorously pursued by General Pedro Sanchez and Higeno Aguilar, leaders of the revolutionary forces which fought a grim battle with Carranza's army near Rinconada last week. They have a superior force of cavalry and are searching the mountains for some trace of the fugitive president. General Medina left here today over the Inter-oceanic railway for the purpose ot intercepting Carranza if he attempts to reach the state of Vera Cruz. Defeat Was Easy. Lack of food and water took the moral of Carranza's men so that their defeat at the hands of the revolutionists wag a comparatively easy task says a dispatch from the Associated Press correspondent in the battle zone. He has just been joined by a correspondent of the newspaper El Dictamen of this city who was with Carranza when he fled from Mexico City on May 7 and who witnessed much of the fighting around San Marcos and Rinconada. When revolutionary troops swept down on the capital, Carranza decided to flee, clinging to the idea that lt was necessary for him to reach Vera Cruz and establish his executive path. His trains carried 10,000 men and a large amount of war munitions ln addition to a presidential suite and government funds and archives. On May 8, the Carranza trains reached Apizaco where they were Joined by troops commanded by General Pilar Sanchez. They then pushed on, but soon the engineers reported they could no further because their locomotives were out of water. The troops detrained and pushed on down the road, defeating a force of revolutionists which tried to check their advance. After the track had been cut behind lt, means was found to take the presidential train further toward Vera Cruz and on May 11 it reached San Marcos. Rinconada was reached the next day and there a battle was fought against troops commanded by General Morales which were defeated by the heavier columns commanded by Carranza. Up to this time no word of the revolt of General Guadeloupe Sanchez revolutionary leader ln this state had reached Carranza, but on May 13 this alarming news was received. Later when the town of Algibes was reached, Carranza's -men found the rails cut. No water could be Secured at Algibes and the morale of the soldiers seemed to break, large numbers deserting. On the afternoon of May 13—General Sanchez made an assault on the Carranza army, but just at what seemed to be the moment of victory its attack was repulsed by a counter thrust led by General Murguia. The next day found the Car- raflza men abandoning some of the ground they had held on the previous day and General Sanchez launched a new attack which smashed the Car ranza line and routed a part of the government troops. Take Many Prisoners. More than 3,500 prisoners were taken by the revolutionists who also captured al] of Carranza's artillery and machine guns. It was immediately after this reverse that Carranza fled from the field of battle and succeeded ln reaching the meetings. During the flight from Mexico City there was little for the soldiers to eat and the men suffered terribly from thirst. General Liberado Lara Torrezo, who was wounded In the fighting on May 13 and was later brought to this city for treatment died yesterday.

(By Associated Press) CHICAGO, May 17.—Wage advances should bo granted to many railroad workers to enable them to meet the high cost of living, the Association of Railways Executives declared today ln its opening statement before the railroad labor board. The board began herlngs here today. E. T. Whiter, chairman of the conference committee of Rail Managers of the executives association told the board that some part of the wage demands being made by 2.000,000 railway employes probably would be found to be justified by the rise ln the cost of living.

The demands now before the board aggregate more than a billion dollars a year, in addition to a billion slollars advance during the war nnd a $300,000,- 000 advance ln the two years prior to government .control, accorsllng to Mr. Whiter. Ho presented figures to show that the railway payrsill had increased 39 percent of the gross earnings of the roads in 1915 to 53.6 percent last year.
