Federal Agents in Hiding.
Thit morning , Grave called at the
embassy and requested an appoint-
5 ment with PrWs Haufeldt at his
horse. A few hours later he arrived
there and convened with the coun
sellor for half an hour. One federal
agent waa hiding behind a door in the
'room. Another waa in the atreet out
aide. A police detective waa nearby.
It if aid that Prince Hatifeldt
showed Graves the $3,000 and that
the latter said he would go to his
hotel and get some of the documents
he did not have with him. Leaving
the house, he walked into the arms
of a federal agent and was taken to
the Department of Justice, where for
, hours he waa examined by A. Bruce
Bielaski, in charge of the bureau of
investigation, and his assistants. At
the end of the examination Mr.
Bielaski swore out a warrant. All the
papers in Graves' possession , were
taken from him. '

to have aaid would prove ''embarrass

and viewed the proceedings with a
faint amile until the question of ball

It was ordered, however that he be
locked up, unless bail should be fur

In reply to question Gravea made
the following atatement to newspaper

"I have nothing Important to say.

"Spy" Has Had Busy
Time in America
Karl Armgaard Graves, under ar
rest in New York, accused of at
tempting to blackmail Countess'
von Bernstorff, wife of the Ger
man ambassador to the United
Statea, hat had a aensational career
since coming to the United States,
about a year before the European
war broke out. He launched him
self on public notice by the pub
lication of what he alleged were se
crets of the German war office,
which he claimed to have gained
while a trusted member of the ae
cret service of the empire. It la
known he waa under arrest aa a
apy in Scotland and had been sen
tenced to prison as tuch. He wai
released and came to America, and
although inquiries have aeveral
timea been made in the House of
Commons aa to why he waa aet at
liberty, no explanation ia given.
Gravea saya it ia because he en
tered the British secret service,
from which he withdrew because
he waa not rewarded as promised.
Many of the statements he makea
in the book he published prior to
the opening of the war have been
given color by eventa that have

While attempting to secure his re
lease Gravea told the bondsman that

manager of the democratic national
committee. The bondsman aaid he
communicated with Wooley, who de
clared he had met Gravea only twice
and knew nothing for or againat him.
, What Warrant Charges.
The warrant against Graves sworn
out by Mr. Bielaski gives the prisoner
the alias of "Meinke and charges that
he "did unlawfully verbally threaten
to expoae and publish certain lettera
addreaaed to Countess von Bernstorff
alleged- to contain matters showing
her Infirmities and failings with intent
to extort from said Countess Bern
storff the sum of $.1,000," and that in
violation of the code "he did unlaw
fully bring into the District of Colum
bia certain lettera addressed to Count
ess von Bernstorff, obtained by him
by theft committed in Hoboken, N. J.,
which act committed in the District
of Columbia would conatitute a viola
tion ot the code and work "againat
the peace and dignity of the United
Statea of America."
Gravea in his widely published so
called exposure of international spy
ing described many sensational epi
sodes, including purported interviews
with the emperor of Germany, how he
waa decorated for his services, the
way in which he aecured and aent to
the government information of ex

English Editor Has
Fear -War. Will Last
Into the Year 1918
'London, Nov, 12. J. L.- Garvin,
writing in the Observer, predicts that
unless the Entente allies come to
more vigorous decisions the war will
be prolonged far into 1918, aa "the re
sult of the new outburst of German
energy on all sides and the unity of
direction under oa Hindenburg."
The allies in the east have perpe
trated almost every blunder left to
them to commit," writes Editor Gar
vin, "after a previous record of mis
management that aeemed well-nigh
exasperating. The prospect is not dis
astrous, but ia disagreeable, as the
fault ia repairable only at the coat of
many caaualties snd many thousanda
of milliona in money, which might
have been saved.
"The dorious chapter of the allied
offenaive on the Somme is closed. The
new chapter ia beginning, as the Ger
mans have fully recovered their mor
ale. There will be no breaking
through by the allies on the west this
year, nor will there be any extensive
withdrawal ot the Uerman lines Be
tween Arras and Noyon.

Regrets Lack of Strong Repub
lican Paper in Capital City,
to Take Its Share.
LOOK FORWARD TWO TEARS
(From a Staff Corrapndftnt.
Lincoln, Nov. , 12. (Special.)
Chairman E. D. Beach of the repub
lican atate committee was busy at
state headouartera at the Lindell hotel
this morning taking care of corre
spondence which still continues to
come in notwithstanding the cam
oaien ia nearly a week over.
When pressed for a statement Mr.
Beach aaid that he had refrained
from saying anything for publication
until he had become satisfied that
there was no hope of landing anything
on the state ticket but now that the
matter was settled he would like to
say a few words.
"One thing that in my estimation
contributed most to the defeat of the
republican state ticket in Nebraska"
sard Mr, Beach, "was the lack of a
good, strong, aggressive republican
paper at the state capital which fighta
for the republican candidates, not
only during? the campaign, but -365
days in the year for republican prin
ciple!, the opposition had a strong,
virile newspaper here which put up a
strong fitrtit for every candidate on
their ticket from Wilson down to the
candidatea for the county officea, and
it waa almost impossible to meet their
argumenta because we had no local
paper which would put up the fight,
Praise for The Bee. '
"The Bee at Omaha was, a strong
factor in the fight for the national
ticket and also for the state ticket, but
it could not do it all. aaid Mr. Beach,
"The Bee was never stronger with
republicans than it is today and had we
the same kind of help here in this part
of the atate, we could have won. With
the prevailing aentiment existing I do
not think we could have carried the
state for Wilson, for somehow he had
a following that was very strong and

thin. is sure, some democrats would
not .ave got across with the small
majorities they did, had we had the
support here that was due us.
Thanks His Aides. -
"The committee put up- the best
fight it wss capable of doing. I had
a strong, capable bunch of assistants,
and right here I want to thank them
for their loyalty and willingness to
put in long hours in order to keep
the work going. , We did our best snd
that waa all any man could do.
