eutered the service more than two
years apo and for a time was sta
tioned at the Burlington bridge
here. Later he went to one of the
cantonments and from there soon
went orerBeas. He has made an ex
cellent soldier and is anxious to re
turn borne at this time, on account
of the condition of his mother, Mrs.
A. C. Carer, of llynard, whose health
i very poor at this time.
Will R. Andrews, who went from
this city, at the time he was first
called was rejected by the examin
ing board and had to wait a num
ber of weeks in order to improve his
health to such an extent he could
be accepted. After he entered the
service his health improved rapidly
and when it came time for his unit
to go overseas he passed a rigid
physical examination and was per
mitted to go across. Like the oth
ers. Mr. Andrews went early iu th?
war and o has been overseas for a
long time. He has made a good
soldier and has seen some of the
most severe fighting of the war. He
is a son of J. S. Andrews and wifs
of this city.
These four Cass county boys, like
others who have come before, are un
doubtedly glad to get back to the
good old I'. S. A., and their rela
tives and friends will be equally
glad to greet them upon their arrival
home at a not far distant date.

Glenwood. Iowa, Papers

Last evening about four o'clock
caused by the explosion of a can of
gasoline which was used for the
cleaning of forms, flames spread
rapidly to the entire plant and soon
enveloping the entire building in
names. Before anything could be
done, the building and plant was so
far gone that it was impossible to
save any portion of the building or
content, all of which was a total
los. There was a small insurance
on the plant and building but not
sufficient to in any way reimburse
the people for the loss sustained.

PRESIDENT EBERT DECIDES TO
RETIRE WITH CHANCEL
Interprets Changes in Administra
tion as Indication That Germany
Will Sign Peace Treaty.
Berlin. June 20. The cabinet re
signed at 2 o'clock this morning.
President Ebert will retain his office
It was stated on good authority
today that President Ebert had de
cided to stand or fall with Chan
cellor Scheidemann. because he felt
that he must resign rather than
sign the peace treaty.
Noske and Mueller in Race.
Between Herr Noske. tho minister
of defense, and Dr. Mueller, under
secretary of the war food bureau,
the race for the premiership s'tur
to be a strong one. although Muel
ler seems to have the advantage on
account of his greater adaptability
in meeting the desires of the inde
An independent leader told the
correspondent today it was a mat
ter of indifference to the independ
ents who was chosen, as neither
man was liked, but that Noske was
least liked because lie would antag
onize hundreds of thousands of per
sons who regard him as a "blood
hound and oppressor."
The democrats. still lighting

Baron von Richthofcn from the
peace committee, because he favor
ed signing the treaty.
Ebert to Remain Temporarily.
President Ebert will remain in
off.ee pending the formation cf a
cabinet, which is a difficult task,
because nobody or any party wants
to shoulder the responsibility of
signing the peace treaty.
It is understood the national as
sembly tomorrow may vote a ref
erendum of the entire people for
Sunday. June 29. at which signa
ture of the terms will be submitted
for ratification. It is claimed this
would result in a huge vote of ap
proval. ince the people are sick of
war and want peace on any terms.
Opposition to Gustav No.ke, min
ister of national defense, as the
successor of Chancellor Scheide
mann, increasing, while Dr. Muel
ler is on record as declining the
premiership, pleading illnew. There
is talk of a temporary directorate
of five members to rule Germany in
case President Ebert fail? to form a
cabinet, but this plan is uirpcpular
and is not likely to he adopted ex
cept as an emergency- measure.
The cabinet members have prom

Expect Germans To Sign.
Paris. June 20. The news f the
political changes in Germany was
made known to the American dele

siderable satisfaction and was inter

The latesi reports received over
the military wire from Weimar in

throes of a reconstitution of the ad
ministration in an endeavor toget
a government that is capable of
signing the peace treaty.
It is expected in I'aris an exten
sion of time will be asked by the
Germans if they are untble to agree
in the time accorded. A member of
tue American delegation, said a
short extension of time roiuht be
granted under this contingency.
Indications that a psychological
swing in favor of signing the peace
treaty has set in in Germany and
that all political parties were af
