Washington. D. C, March 12.—The state department sent to all the for elgn embassies and legations in Washington official notification of this government's decision to place arms and" armed guards on all American ships leaving these shores for tho submarine zones. The announcement came immediately after Secretary Lansing conferred with President Wilson at the White house and was as follows: Tbe Department of State has -sent the following statement to all foreign embassies in Washington for their information. "In view of the announcement of the imperial German government ot Jan. 31, 1917, tbat all ships, those of neutrals Included, met within certain zones of the high seas would be sunk without any precautions being taken for the safety ot the persons on board and without the exercise of visit ..and search, the government of tbe United States has determined to •place upon all American merchant Tassels sailing through the barred areas sn armed guard for the protection of the vessels and the ftves of persons on board." It was made clear at the department that this communication is in no wise intended for Berlin and that the Swiss legation ls not expected to communicate lt to the kaiser's government. Won't Change Ship's Status. It was also learned at the state ie- partm<mt that tbe United States holds that the pr-esence of naval gunners on American merchantment will not change tho status of those ships as this country has never accepted tho assertion of Oermany that naval men on. British merchantmen rendered them auxiliary warships. Guns and gunners will be placed on munition ships as well as other boats, it was declared, and the navy men will be responsible directly to tbe government and not to the captains of the ships to which they aro assigned. Whether commissioned officers are used is entirely up to the navy department, lt was said. The position of the president and the state department now ls that lf Oermany wishes to avoid armed conflict with the United States the only way is to spare American ships and that she will do this no one close to the administration believes. Washington, D. C, "March 12.—Wiyi all plans completed for the protection of American merchant vessels on the hish seas, the administration today had settled Sam* Into * wafting attitude.

One branch of ons shop, the forging plant of Transue- Williams, has reached close to the thousand dollars. All the men have not had a chance to get in with their gift. No doubt the other shops and the other branches of this shop will equal or excel this mark, but lt gives the others a good target to shoot at. Of course the contributions ot «.he owners are not Included In the figures mentioned above. Tha workmen ave appreciating what great ptlvlleges they are given la the new building. They see that they may use It on an equality wltn the College students and at a different time. On their nights college students will have no privileges It will be exclusively for citizens and shop teams or clubs. Also the college agrees to offer It for city use for games, lectures, mass meetings or social affairs at least 104 nights In the year. The rental will be a nominal figure, probably not enough to provide heat, light .and janitor service. It It a bargain which can be secured only from a public semi-charitable institution like the college. With BO extra ouUay for land the cost of the building Is at a minimum, and bee- cause of the necesrlty of heating and janitor service for the regular college activities the cost of operation Is tho lowest possible.

Havana, Cuba, March 12.—Former Ambassador Gerard and twenty members of his party sailed for Key West at 10 o'clock this morning aboard the steamer Oovernor Cobb. International News Servte*. Havana, Cuba, March 12.—Startling stories of German diplomatic Intrigue will be told by James W. Gerard, former American ambassador, after be reports to Secretary of State Lansing and President Wilson, It was said after the Gerard party sailed for Key West today. Will Silence Pacifists. Gerard's purpose, his friends say, is to furnish President Wilson with an effective weapon to combat the pacifist element ln congress. His revelations, It is understood, wlll be givrn as much publicity as possible and wlll go a long way toward clearing up any doubts in the United States of Ger- many's attitude. The former ambassador believes lt to be his duty to inform the American public, members of his party declare, and wil] back up his statements with documentary evidence. Gerard himself declined to submit to questioning when approached by newspaper men here, but several members of bis party brought to Havana first hand information regarding internal conditions in Germany. They reported that Germany, threatened with starvation, is counting upon three factors to save her from defeat.. These are: An effective submarine campaign that will starve England into making peace. Withdrawal of Italy from tho war. A revolution in Russia. The new submarine war had been tn operation .only a few days wben tbe ambassador and his party left staff boarded the steamer Infanta Isabel for Havana. From Havana Ambassador Gerard was to go to Key West, where it is planned to have a special train ready to convey him direct to Washington. Germany and npne of the U-boats had returned with reports. But absolute confidence prevailed throughout the empire, that new warfare would bring England to her knees. Gerard wijl so report to Preesident Wilson npoh his arrival in Washington. The Oerman people, members of Gerard's party agreed, heard the news of severance of diplomatic relations with tbe United States, with the greateest indifference. They do not believe that the United States can become a real factor in the war. On the other hand, they are watching closely internal conditions ln Russia and Italy. A revolution In Russia, or action for a separate peace, are confidently looked forward to in Berlin official circles. The German government is watching closely reports of food riots and demoralization of the Russian munitions and transportation system and un questionably German agents are back ing tbe peace propaganda In Petro grad. So confident are the Teutons that Russia can undertake no great offensive for many months that they have stripped the eastern front of men and guns and have massed them in the west to meet the spring offensive of the British. German agents also are active in Italy, members of the Gerard party reported. Tbe Germans believe effective submarine operations in the Mediterranean will cut off Italy's coal supply, cause hfT munition factories to suspend operations and bring about Italy's defeat. The Gerard party was to leave for Key West before noon today aboard tbe steamship Governor Cobb. The former ambassador plans to report to President Wilson before going to New York. I. Alliance Soldiers are Due Home at an Early Date CITY SHOULD GIVE CORDIAL WELCOME School Children May Be Allowed to Go to the Station, Mention was made In The Review several days ago of a letter being addressed to Colonel Weybrecht at Ft. Benjamin Harrison, Ind., asking his suggestions as to a reception to be given the members of Company K, Eighth Ohio Infantry, upon Its return from muster o .. at the above fort. So far no reply has been received, but one should reach here at an early date. ■, Monday afternoon Major Robert Harsh of the SonB of Veterans' Reserves was looking into the situation and starting a movement to get a general turn-out of the citizens as a reception to the returning soldiers. Mr. Harsh was to see Superintendent Stanton to ascertain • It the school pupils would ,be allowed to march to the station and aid in welcoming tbe boys. He also suggested tbat all the lodges of the city take up the matter and ask their members to participate in a general demonstration. Alliance has reason to feel proud 6f the services rendered by the local soldiers in answering President Wil son's call tor volunteers to guard the Mexican border and the city as a whole should acknowledge its op- preclatlon of the work. Thousands of citizens should be at the depot to greet the boys and then some sort of a banquet should be prepared for them. All the surrounding cities having soldiers are planning a demonstration and this city should not be lacking along tbis line. Let the proposed movement be given impetus and Alliance turn our en masse to extend a hearty welcome to Its citizen soldiery. 11H.

Following a considerable period of time with no crime ot the kind, the city police late Saturday night, faced tbe problem of solving a double mystery, that of Identifying a man who was murdered In cold blood and tbat of discovering the assassin. It was not until Sunday afternoon and after unceasing work that the identity of the dead man was established positively, then lt became known that the victim of the shooting was Hiram H.
