Aa informal ' gathering of about thirty citizens met at the home of Col. and Mrs. C. C. Weybrecht laat night and took measures toward "stabllah- ing a chapter of the American Red Cross. C- Y. Kay acted as temporary chairman and Mrs. C. L Taylor as temporary secretary. After an extended discussion af the work and alms of the Red Cross and the part Alliance should contribute, a committee on organisation wis appointed consist- lag of F. D. Miller, Mrs. C. C. Weybrecht, Miss Mabel Hartzell, representing the D. of A., W. H. Morgan asd Mrs. Clara Taylor who represents the D. of V. This committee, after receiving full instructions from J. J. O'Connor, director of the central division of the American Red Cross, will report at a general meeting of all Alliance people interested which wtll be called as soon as possible, presumably at toe city ball. The outbreak of war wlll at once tremendously Increase the work carried on by the Red Cross. The entire hospital woht t<ar tke army and navy will be turned over to thia organisation which is now organized to take care of tbe sick and wounded for a force ot a million men. Patriotic women all over the country have been working for months and immense quantities of hospital supplies have been prepared, but much more will be needed and the women ot Alliance must contribute their share. As soon ■Ss the organization is effected, some central work rooms will be secured committeee on *p*ur*cha?ing material, on Instructing workers and so forth will be appointed and the work will be on la good earnest. With tbe exception of Japan, tbe hospital arrangements of every country now Involved in the war failed to meet the shock of the flrat tremendous battles and were months in attaining an efficiency equal to their armies' needs. The American Red Cross intends to have every facility and every possible comfort prepared for our army and navy In advance. In addition to the military work, however, the Red Cross must be prepared for its usual civilian work, such, as relief In mine and flood disasters aad will at once assume the responsibility of assisting the dependent families of those enrolled in the army and navy which will mean an expenditure of millions every month. It can Readily be seen that the fullet co-operation on the part of every citizen In the United States Ib absolutely imperative. Let no one in Alliance feel that a meager purse precludes him or her from Joining the ohapter. Large donations and membership' lees will be very acceptable, bat dimes and quarters win be equally so.

City Solicitor Arthur Morris and Attorneys Hart and Koehler returned from Columbus Friday evening following the close of the light rate caae before the public utilities commission at Columbus whicb closed Friday afternoon. During the bearing of tka case the Alliance Oaa and Power company used 12 witnesses most of which were of a duplicate character, one being uaed to substantiate the testimony of the other, upon the value placed upon the property of the gas and power company in Alliance. The city uaed but six wltnessea, the laat one being Engineer White *t the State Utilities commission, who had charge of the men used in the appraisement of tbe company property ,ln Alliance and fixed a value upon tt. City Solicitor Morris statea the great battle was over the intangible property whlcb consists in the preliminary coat incurred previous to the building of the plant In its present condition. Thia includes architects fees, attorney fees, the cost of franchise and other items ot this character. Upon theae, the city solicitor statess, the commission is disposed to take middle grounds. The light company and commission apparently agreed upon a ten per cent addition to the physical value of the plant for a general contractors profit which Is customary. As the hearing ls now concluded the board gave to the light company attorneys sixty days to prepare and submit a printed brief reviewing thetr side of the case or until June 1. The city then has sixty days or until August 1 to prepare an answer to this brief and submit it In printed form to the board. The light company has until August 10 to file a supplemental brief. To follow thia oral argument will be made but not before August IS. If either of the conteeting parties is dissatisfied with the finding of the commission, they may carry the case direct to the supreme court of Ohio and from there to the United States Supreme court. Solicitor Morris stat<es he is very confident the -city will g<et a substantial reduction to prevailing rates for light in tha city, and is well satisfied that all waa done for tbe city that could be doaa to take care of the lntereat of the olty and he expects a favorable decision from the state board. Attorney Radcliff proved a valuable aid to tke city solicitor aa did Engineer Ballard of Cleveland. HEHE TO URGE YT Universal Service Would Ask Six Months Training for All Youths. RICH AND POOR TO BE TREATED ALIKE Would Prevent War, Rather Than Encourage It, Advocates Say, Capt. .Mark H. Thomas, of Chicago, field aecretary of the Universal Military Training League, was ln Alliance Friday and Saturday enlisting the aid of local men for the Chamberlain bill providing for obligatory military service ln the United States. Capt Thomas said it was Important that prompt action be taken In wiring Ohio senators and congressmen, urging them to support the revised bill when It comes up at the extra session of congress next week. H? said he was- endeavoring to enlist tbe aid of manufacturers and merchants to place literature favoring the bill, in the pay envelopes of the men. He said he had met with favorable responses. The bill provides that every man In his 20th year must serve six months at a training camp in order to be schooled in military affairs. No one physically fit, he said, could evade tbe serviee or hire a substitute. "Tha volunteer system has always been a failure," Capt. Thomas said. "In, every great war, lt haa been necessary to resort to conscription. The aim of the millionaire moat serve on equal terma wltb the aon of ips bujn- blest worker. Tha movement is a non-partisan, non-secterlan one and haa been endorsed by prominent men of all faiths, parties and classes. "It makes for peace because it minimizes the professional soldier and depends upon the citizen who wields sovereign political power."

PRESIDENT SENDS WORD TO CONGRESS NE v- IE RWIT ANY TIME Congressional Leaders Begin Efforts to Speed Up Or* ganization of the House So as to Receive "War" Mes« sage at Earliest Hour—President May Appear Before Joint Session Late Monday Afternoon—Tone of Mes- sage Will Be Positive and Republicans, Opposing Leader Mann for Speaker, May Absent Themselves] Long Enough for House Organization Slate to Gq Through. \." r * i BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN Washington, D. C, Maroh 31.—Presi dent Wilson will address congress at the earllese possible moment. He to- day sent word .to the house leaders tbat he is prepared to lay the entire German situation before a Joint session at any time after the extraordinary session convenes. His message, he made It plain, is entirely completed. As a remit the leaders began efforts to speed up as much as possible the organization of the . house. It was conceded, despite the closeness ot the two parties, there will be no time wasted in' organising. It teemed certain, the leaders say, that the house could be ready for business by mid afternoon on Moiidax, wthBA tA senate already is completsty orgaaiiatlon. Poiittve assertion by administration leadera that the PrealdMtt'a message will be positive la-tone hat.done mueh to clear away many obstacles in .the way of organising the houae. Some re publicans, at least, have Indicated that Ihey win not vote for Mr. Mann and if they shall absent thamselves from the opening session tbey will simplify com plete organization-In-as short a time as wlll be required to call tile roll. With his message completed the Preeldent and Mrs. Wilson motored to a Virginia country club today and played a round of golf. Afterward the president read over the corrected manuscript of his addreas, which will be sent to teh printer early Monday morn lag. Officials ln his confidence continued to Insist today that the address WUl shatter German claims that this government has no cause for action and will specifically place responsibility for the existing "state of war" on Germany. It was stated that toe sinking of additional merchantment without warning with probable loaa of American Uvea as reported to the Btate department today, will not change the situation ln any way. It rlmply emphasizes the necessity for immediate action, officials say. President Wilson today completed a tentative draft of bla war addreas to congress. Minor changes probably will be made tn tbe phraseology but the main provisions will remain as written. While the president has not even told his cabinet members everything that he will ask of congress, members of his official family today agreed that "there will be no evasion on the principal points." Tka Preeldent, It was said will deal only wltb the main source of difficulty with Germany, making no attempt to draw up a general Indictment ot German methods. To Ask War Declaration That tbe president will aak for a declaration by congress that a state of war exists between tbe United States and Oermany, brought on by Germany's acta of aggression against American ships aad American citizens Is no longer doubted. He wss reported to have held up until tbe last a desire not to ask formally that congress make such a declaration bub hia fateat review of tbe situation la said to have convinced him that ha should flatly ask the declaration th s* few words as possible. With the course of the adminls- tratlon having been positively out-. lined, officials of the war and navy departments and the council of na-o tional defense today resumed general preparations tor actual warfare. Important new preparations werej studied by the council of national de-. fense. ' These additional steps wera agreed upon at yeaterday'a cabinet meeting and will to an—1~' imme-> dlately. Certain pWnges will bo brought shout which are expected to r*asult In a closer co-ordination of all mllittry and naval resources and rem suit la gr-eater efficiency. Address May Come Tuesday President Wilson has about made> up hla mind tbat his war address can be delivered to congress on Tues. day.,. Reports to the White House state that there will be little possibility .of an extended fight over con* trol of the house of representatives and that permanent organisation can be effected in time for the president to appear before the joint session ot the senate and house Tuesday. Tba President looks for only minor opposition to his measures asking for tha safety of the nation. While it ls ad- mltted that there has been a strong sentiment among membera of both houses to do nothing of a warlike na. ture except when It is absolutely necessary, democratic leaders have reported that practically all membera of congress are willing to trust tba president for a decision aa to when war becomes necessary. It was admitted that there would be considerable opposition to this government granting loans in large amounts to the entente governments at present, as well as the plan of sending a larga army to the battle front In France, but It waa believed that such opposition would quickly disappear should steps become essential to the best Interests of the nation. No U-Boat Confirmation War and navy officials have received further unofficial reports of German submarines operating in watera close to tbe United States ports. No official confirmation of these reports haa been received and officials view tbem with disbelief. Each report Is investigated, however. All officials declined to discuss the arrest In New Orleans of Dr. Julian Irlas, former candidate for president in Nicaragua, who Is reported to ba held In connection with a German plot to overthrow the government ot all Latin American nattona simultaneously. It ls known thst the state department has received a large amount of otflcial information showing that Oermany has laid plots among thees countries but officials bere decline to state whether Dr. Irlas had any connection with them. Just bow far these plots extend ln their scope haa never been revealed by the state department. MUNITION CONTACTS ME NOWJOMPLETEO International Mews Servtes: New Turk, M.
