Columbus, May 29.—Law-abiding "enemy aliens" in this country still may benefit from Ohio's workmen's compensation law, but the state cannot send compensation payments to workmen's dependents in Germany or lands of her allies so long as the war lasts. Atty. Geu. McGhee so holds in a ruling to the state industrial commission, before outbreak of war Ohio sent thousands of dollars across the sea yearly in compensation awards There is no bar, however, to payment of compensation funds to workmen or their dependents in "friendly nations'" abroad, McGhee ruled.

Tbe men gathered up in the Virginia mountain band raid and elsewhere will be held on charges of "seditious conspiracy" though if the espionage bill passes, new cases will be dealt with more seriously, under that measure. According to department data, much of the propaganda originated in Texas in an organization formed sometime ago ostensibly for co-operative buying. There is, however, the suspicion that German spies or sympathizers have had a hand in the trouble. First signs of the anti-registration trouble developed about three weeks ago. At that time the department found that circulars were being spread aboard urging agalnat registering and against draft. This insidious campaign had taken on considerable proportions .when the round- ops began yesterday. FLEE CITY By United Press. London, May 29.—German night attacks northwest of Cheresy and south of Lens were repulsed and a number of prisoners taken, Field Marshal Haig reported today. "The enemy suffered severe loss," the statement said. The successful raids by the English on German support lines north of Armentleres are also reported as "between 20 and 30 prisoners taken." the turtle shell of the Britisher would drop long enough for the finish. Praise for Leonard, however, must be only slightly stronger than for Welsh. The old man of the ring, undoubtedly realizing the end was in sight, did everything he knew to prevent the finish of his career as leader of the lightweight division. There was no denying however, the cool, calm youth who stabbed and crossed, always holding his right hand in readiness. The ninth round had been furiously fast when Leonard started tbe whirlwind that brought the old champion down. Crossing for the head, Welsh started into a clinch. Using his right hand almost for the first time in the bout, Leonard crossed behind the champion's guard. Welsh ducked but he was too late. The smashing power of the mauling fist caught him on the temple. Welsh's knees sagged, a sorry smile struggled over hia features and he tried vainly to stagger into a clinch. Weaving faintly and trying to hold up, Welsh sagged nntil his knees touched the floor. Referee Mc Part- land started to count and Welsh arose. Again he went down one hand clinging to the ropes in Leon ard's corner. He arose, both hands on the ropes, his head unprotected A dozen times the flailing fists of the eager challenger crashed into Welsh's chin. Gamely the Rritisher stood it. McPartland looked appeal ingly to Walsh's corner but the sponge was not forthcoming. Mc Partland mercifully stepped and end ed It. Welsh, given a hand by the referee tried to reach his corner, but ba sprawled and fell through the rope*. A wave-ef Mack flecked with the yellow of straw hats ieaped into the smoke filled air as the crowd ac claimed another American lightweight champion of the world Brushing aside special policemen the crowd surged into the ring hug ging and cheering Leonard. Welsh sitting dazed in his corner did not realize what had happened tAf sev eral minutes. __ MIL MAP !5 6WIN. 10 .[PROBED; EXPLOSIVE SUFFICIENT Washington.

Lansing was questioned by a com-i I mittee member regarding the real ] need for such an act. "There was an attempt," Lansing said, "by the Germans or German officials—1 do not know whirl, to j lorce a breach between this i-ountry iand either England or France. for their recovery. The rioting started Immediately following a meeting at the city hall, protesting the importation of blacks from the south to work in packing bouses and munition factories here. While the meeting was in session, a report waa received that two white men had been held up at a gun's point and that a white woman had been Insulted by a negro. The meeting was adjourned immediately by Mayor Mollman. Some one shouted, "get the skunks," and the gathering was on it's way to reinforce a mob that was parading the down-town streets in search of negroes. The riot ended early today when six negroes wbo tried to cross the Eads bridge in St. Louis were dragged into an empty building and! kicked into unconsciousness. The crowd then started for another negro settlement, but a police sergeant told the crowd that he knew the name of every white man in the throng anu would cause their arrest unless they dispersed. At this point the leaders called, off the men and went to their homes. When Mayor Mollman's appeal to the mob was answered with catcalls, he ordered all saloons and other places used by negroes as meeting houses closed. Scores of negroes were arrested by the police for safekeeping. BUILDING huysen's resolution Speaking iu support of his resolution, Senator Frelinghuysen denounced "that mocking and foolish doctrine that the people "of America must be kept in Ignorance." "My one object is to prevent such accidents afterwards," he said, refer- lng to the accident on the Mongolia. "This duty is one we owe to the young men we will call into service. Publication will do no harm. I feel convinced the public needs this information. I-et'8 stand with the president in his demands for 'pitiless publicity.' " Senator Swanson of the committee said that more than 200 merchant vessels had been armed and that between 4000 and 5000 sailors had been placed aboard them to man the guns. An accident similar to that on the Mongolia, except without fatal results, he said, occurred on the St. Louis and in that case nine shells exploded in the gun and four By United before they struck the water. Eigh-j Chicago, ty-nine shells were taken from the leaders of New York, May 29.—Discovery of "Terrorall," an explosive so powerful that five grains would »be sufficient to crumble the Woolworth building was announced here by Dr. Dayve B. De Waltoff. The discovery was made public. during a meeting of the Medico- Pharmaceutical league at which Dr. DeWaltoff was speaker. Working to compound a chemical solution which would give a cheap substitute for gasoline he said, he and his son Morton, accidentally discovered a new explosive mixture. UNDER ARREST cation of the "secret ertaties" is in strong support of the government which has maintained that such action should not be taken without consultation with Russia's allies, although it favored in general the publication of all future compacts by the now regime. Kerensky is still at the front, exhorting the troops to flght. A new order issued by him was published here today It pleaded for total abstinence from liquor in the army. "Unless soldiers abstain from consumption of stores of liquors which they discover, new Russia will be submerged in a pool of alcohol to the accompaniment of incendiarism and other outrages." Kerensky declared. "I demand that the use of alcohol by soldiers and officers be prevented." "A steamship company was organized with an American board oi j directors to make trouble—before! | the American declaration of war!

Lansing declared that before this .country entered into the war, Ger-i I many sent an agent here, or dele-| gated one of her spies on American! soil—to organize the steamship company. This agent, he said, loaned Americans the money to buy grain and place it aboard ship in order to raise some issue between this country and one of the allies over the question of seizure of American cargoes. "There are many cases," Lansing continued, "doubtless inspired by Germany, while we weren't aware of organizations effected in this country for the sole purpose of creating friction with (ifeat Britain or France.
