Washington, July 26."—The L'nited States today is negotiating with the allies to legalize many hundreds of thousands of aliens in this city .to fight under the American flag. Before the time for the second levy the necessary abrogations of treaties and action by congress will bring aliens under the draft law. In every section of the nation an outcry against the "obvious Injustice" of the present law as applied to non-citizens is rising. Already it has reached congress and forced action. Tir.e McCumlier resolution to draft aliens, is today before a subcommittee of the senate foreign relations committee. Under this resolution aliens may be drawn into the army or deported upon refusel to serve. Tbe war department has approved the resolution, but the state department has pointed out diplomatic obstructions in specific treaties with a half dozen countries preventing drafting their citizens into the United States military service. At the Italian embassy today it was stated diplomatic negotiations were under way to bring 150,000 Italians of military age in the United States under the provisions of the draft. At present neither the Italian nor American governments can lay hands upon them. Eairih of the allied countries is expected to acquiesce in the speedy nullification of any old obstructing treaties and agreements. But whether tbey do or not officials here declared that congress may act—that laws supersede ths treaties. Nations at war with Germany are hardly expected to object to conscription of their subjects here. The mail of the war department is flooded with bitter protests from cities with a large alien population. They claim that nearly every American will be taken ln the first levy from certain districts with heavy alien population. In Chicago one fourth of the entire registration is exempt as aliens. In one district ot 2,923 registration, 2,108 are exempt as aliens, leaving only 815 Americans from which to draw 377 soldiers. GIRL STILL MISSING By United Press. Havana, July 26.—The mystery or the disappearance of Ruth Armstrong, Y)ungstown, Ohio, school teacner, was still unsolved today.

Attorney Maxwell j McNutt. chief defense counsel in the Rena Mooney trial just closed, made j this statement today, declaring that ■ the failure of the state's case had j demonstrated the fntility of further] effort to connect Mooney with the j outrage which killed ten persons andj injured forty on July 22, 1916.

I do not believe the dis-1 trict attorney can do less than dis-: miss he three indictsments still standing against me and give me my freedom. When Foreman Hardwire pronounced the verdict Mrs. Mooney seized Attorney- McNutt about th.; neck and kissed him repeatedly. Defense Attortjeys O'Connor and McKenzie she also embraced and seized the hands of as many jurors as she could reach and kissed the men, crying out her gratitude. District Attorney Fickert said today he is undecided whether to send Mrs. .Mooney to trail again on another indictment. Attorney Tom O'Connor of defense counsel, declared today the defense would now proceed with its effort-' to prove that a -Trame up" existed on the part of the state. "We will go ahead," he said, "with the prosecution of Frank C. Oxman, principal state witness in the Tom Mooney trial and other witnesses of the state, so that this whole conspiracy may be exposed.

Columbus, July 26.—Naming of a major general for Ohio's National Guard division will be up to the president, instead of Governor Cox, according to word from Washington. The war department has not yet recognized the Ohio division, and Washington dispatches have it that it will not be recognized until after it has been federalized, thus giving the president power to appoint the major general. Official notice to this effect had not reached the adjutant general's office here Thursday, nor had verification of the announcement at Washington that the Ohio Guard will be organized along new lines when assembled in camp ai Montgomery, Ala. According to unofficial war department announcements, the new organizational plan will mean that National Guard units instead of having 150 men to the company and 2000 to the regiment, as present war strength, will have 300 men to the company and a brigade will consist of 3,000 This plan will redu_e the strength of a division from 28,000 to about 17,000 men, which is below the strength of the Ohio Guard, thus assuring immediately a full division for Ohio if the plan is carried out. The war department has not set a date for departure of Ohio troops. They will go as soon as they are ready, acscording to department officials. Ohio guardsmen will be equipped at once. Adj. Gen. Wood, who has been at the quartermaster depot at Jeffersonville, Ind. announced. » ********* * * * GERMANY WON'T BE STARVED NEXT WINTER Germany is beginning to iselieve U-boats won't starve England. The feeling against America in Germany is not bitter, but—President Wilson is close to number one on tli^ German strafe list. These are some of the impressions acquired in Germany by a distinguished newspawer man of neutral nationality, who cabled the I'nited Press the following dispatch today: ♦ ♦ ♦ ********* By United Press. Washington, July 20.—America rushed her war measures today to fill the breach in the allied hopes made by Russia's collapse and the increased submarine sinkings. With nearly 600,000, regulars and militiamen mobilized or encamped already, contractors were speeding the cantonments for the new national army of 500,000 in October. Admiral Capps took charge of the emergency fleet construction to overtake submarine destruction. The shipping board was to meet today with Edward N. Hurley, its new chairman. Brig. Gen. George O. Squier sounded the slogan of the $640,000,- tttt aviation program by declaring I "We will enter Germany by the air route." Awaiting Secretary McAdoo s $.">,•■ 000,000,000 war budget, the senate | finance committee informally dis- [ cussed raising two billions of this sum by added taxes. The senate military and foreign relations committee were discussing a bill aimed to increase the __econd draft for the new national army by calling up aliens. While these steps were taken th« house and senate conferees met to discuss the food control bill whose early adoption is still threatened by persistent petty political wrangling in both branches.

Lon- About a week ago the boy was cutting grass with a cycle, holding the grass with one hand and "whacking" it off with the other, when the cycle slipped, cutting a finger on his left hand. Little hope is held out for his recovery. John Wilde who is in Mt. Carmel battling bloodpoisoning showed some improvement Thursday. Herman Steinberg, 17, who has lockjaw at Protestant hospital, was no better Thursday. MASSILLON — Frank England, colored, sought by police in (connection with killing of Henry Thomas. .■.ni_.terc.an_. July 26.—I have brought home the conviction that the fourth winter of the war will strike the Germans hard, but that the allies will not starve Germany Into a surrender. The Germans have raised tremendous quantities of vegetables, partly in consequence of Ihe very hot summer weather. Prospects for cereals are rather good, but the fodder question seems serious and many cattle will have to be killed in the fall for lack of feed. The potato crop looks good. The food problem is the subject ot continual discussion, with much bad feeling against certain classes alleged to get more than their share. The soldiers' rations are still good. War material still seems plentiful. Gun and munitions factories are working day and night. Confidence in the anility of the submarine to end the war is growing slim. Many Germans believe the allies will hold out until lt Is proved that even with American help they cannot break the German lines in Belgium and France—then they will be willing to talk peace. The feeling against Americn is not bitter, but President Wilson is about the best hated of men. His last utterance have been ridiculed and cited as proof that he does not know Europe. The idea that Austria could make, a separate peace—which Germans consider prevalent in America—is a subject for laughter in Berlin and what is more important, likewise in Vienna. ZANESVILLE—Mary Godfrey, 11, killed by lightning. MARION—This county's tax duplicate increased $1,393,640 under new self-assessment system. ST. MARYS—Charles H.

The "Legion of Death" left Petrograd barely two weeks ago. its girl soldiers garbed in trousers, puttees and tunics a trifle longer tban the usual army coats. They wore the regular army caps, over bobbed hair and carried packs only a trifle lighter than those of the regular Russian soldiers.
