Hollweg Declares ' Italy Forced to Go To War by British Berlin, Sept. 28.-(By Wireless to Sayville.) The Reichstag convened today and the imperial chancellor, Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg, delivered his eagerly-awaited speech. He began by outlining the events which led up to the Italian and Roumanian decla rations of war. He recalled that the German ambassador had left Rome after Italy's declaration . of war against , Austria-Hungary and 'that Germany had announced that the Italians would find German troops fighting with their Austrian comrades on the Italian frontier. He continued: "Thus a state of war practically ex isted, but a formal declaration of war did not come tilt later. Italy appar ently was afraid of the consequences which it would suffer after the war in regard to its economic relations with us. ' ----- . "On the other hand, i Rome pre ferred to lay the blame for the decla ration at our door. But for ut there waa no reason to play Italy's game. Oar tactics were justified by the un interrupted efforts of the entente powers to cause Italy to declare war. "For more than a year the Italian government ' resisted. Finally, the measures . which .England employs with equal ruthlessness against neu trals and its allies were too strong. Italy's welfare depends upon English coal and English money. Finally it had to give in. , ; "The decision : certainly ' was brought about by Sritish coercion, al though Italian hopes in regard to the Balkans also exercised influence. Italy, as Is known, desires Balkan territories, which are within the natural sphere of Greek interests. In order not to be abandoned Italy found It necessary to partake in the expedition of General Sarrail, (the allied commander at Saloniki), and this caused an encounter between Italian and German troops in Mace donia."

Key to the Situation The Bee Want Ada, BIG BANKERS FAVOR MILITARY TRAINING Vanderlip and Lynch Say Pre paredness of All Kinds is Economic Necessity. BOOM IS ONLY TEMPORARY Kansas City, Mo., Sept 28. Ad vocacy of universal military, training in this country and greater participa tion in national, state and municipal politics were urged here today by speakers before the American Bank ers association. Military service for all young men was declared ne:esary by James J. Lynch of San Francisco, president of the association, and Frank A. Van derlip of Illinois. "Ills in politics through which demagogues and ward heelers' have gotten into city coun cils, state .legislatures and even con gress, are due to the negligence of bankers and other business men, the convention was told by Mayor George H. Edwards of Kansas City. Mr. Lynch stated preparedness was necessary because we are to day the most tempting prize under tne Dlue canopy ot neaven. Mr. Vanderlip deoiared it to be tne surest assurance ot peace. Vanderlio'a Addresa. "If ever a people should pause, if ever tney snout toon abroad and profit by the experience of others, should comprehend their national dangers, in the light of the terrible rcmici mat arc oeing enacica ue- lore.tnetr eyes in other nations, it is now and we are the people. i In those words Frank A. Vanderlip of New York warned his hearers they should not take too easily the present great wealth of this countrv that "seems dangerously likely to submerse us in our own orosneritv" .Rather, he said, with an opportunity sucn as no country ever had to lay tne sure foundations ot a great fu ture, we must not be "so intent unon dividing the proceeds of present prosperity inai we tail 10 safeguard its permanence.' Mr. Vanderlip. after aoeakine of the war's cost in Europe and outlin ing the financial status of this coun try, declared: "In a word, I believe the greatest need of the. day and a need so fundamental as to make other matters inconsequential in com parison is the need of universal military, industrial and economic pre- pareaness. Military Training Necessity. He asked for training in military service for all men, greater savings by all classes and greater 'efficiency in industrial pursuits. i once thought vou could count universal military service as an eco nomic waste,' he said. "I feel con fident, in the light of events of the last two years, that it la not onlv a military necessity of superlative im portance, but that our national life would draw a unity which could be obtained in no other way." Mr. Vanderlip scarcely touched nn. on the banking business except to ay that he believed the federal re serve act embodies some sound fun damental principles, fret working of which,, however had been, entangled and hampered in its inception by political considerations and adminis trative attitude. , i Committee on Laws Reports. ,; The - report of the committee on federal legislation, read by Charles A.

Mr. Dunn announces he will not serve as head of such committee, and he added that he was not consulted when the selec tion was made by the Jacks. The Jacks maintain that the county or ganization, maintained and operated by the Jims, does not represent' the democracy of this county. The whole situation was aired before the creden tials committee of the state demo crat!: convention at Hasings in July. The Jims scored a victory on that oc casion.

Ihe republican party has pledged its faith over and over again and not to this hour has its pledge gone to public protest "One of the most earnest nledires of democracy was to reduce the high cost of living. This i one of the questions that always is of paramount importance among people who earn their bread in the sweat of their faces. This pledge was not keot. Did the democratic party make this pledge knowing it could not, or would not keep it? If so they have forfeited public confidence. No party has any claim to public support which reck lessly makes pledges which it can not or will not keep." Denver Bakers To Boost Price of I Bread 50 Per Cent ! Denver. Colo.. Sent. 28.

ARMORED MOTOR GAR , RUNS OUT OF JUICE German Soldiers Swarm Over Stranded Tank in Vain En deavor to Penetrate It. INFANTRY TO THE RESCUE British Front in France, Sept. 27. (Midnight Via London, Sept 28.) In the lull which has occurred after the great two days' battle, in which five, villages and 5,000 prisoners were taken by the allies, the correspond ent of the Associated Press has had an opportunity to glean many stories from the participants in the struggle. These stories were not only of cour age and heroism, but of a humor and paradox possible only in such com plicated and remorseless warfare. The most wonderful of all the tales told was perhaps that of one of the tanks, or new armored motor cars. which started for Berlin on its own account This monstrous land ship, ambling and rumbling along, did not wait on the infantry after the taking of Guedecourt, but plodded over shell holes and across lots looking for its prey like some prehistoric lizard. In course of time it found a German trench, but as it engaged the occupants with its machine guns it ran out of gasoline. German Swarm Over Tank. When the Germans found this strange creature, with its steel hide impenetrable to bullets, stalled, cu riosity and a desire for revenge was a fillip to their- courage. They went after it with the avidity of prehistoric men stalking a wound ed mammoth, whose bulk was fast in one of the alleys of the cave dwell ers. No such game was ever seen On this western front marked as it has been by all kinds of bizarre fighting. . According to the accounts given by the British omcers with veracious so lemnity, while the tank's machine gun blazed right and left, some of the Germans managed to creep along the trenches under the fore legs and hind legs of the crouching beast, lhen they swarmed over it, looking for an opening through which to strike at its vitals. They fired their rifles into joints and bombed it all over, but to no more avail than burglars trving to reach the inside of a battle ship turret with a jimmy. All the while the tank s machine guns kept busy at the human targets in reach while its crew, chosen -dare-devils, concluded to stick until they starved or the Germans found the proper can opener to get them out. Infantry to Rescue. Finally the British infantry in the rear, seeing the tank in distress, re fused to wait on any general orders that thev should remain at the ob jective which they had gained. - They were out to save that impounded tank and with a cheer thev rushed the Germans and - overwhelmed ! them.
