Accept Substitute. Washington. Jan. 5. Senator Hitchcock late today accepted as a substitute fcr his resolution endors ing the president s peace note one offered by Senator Jones, republican, which annrovea not the note, but the president's request for a statement of peace terms by belligerent nations. ' Apparently referring to the subma rine situation, Senator Lewis during his 'speech declared: ."Da vou feel that the people of this nation are in such temper that they ran vr airain allow aiiv command- -r-W Ships, ihy captains ot armies, any officer of diplomacy, to visit upon iliia rnnntrv an iniurv to a citizen or property and escape on an excuse of misconception ot orders or zeai 01 an ojficer? -. ' ' "If these conditions again be re peated," he continued, "America will not again accept that form of apology and will resent and punish to the full extent of its power. No amount of logic of pacification would prevail. "I say, continuance of war means war with the United States and in tnis I have never a doubt of the compre hension of the United States" and faith in the sagacious foresight of the officials of the administration in the effort looking to bring about peace with Europe that we might maintain peace in America. Senator Lewis declared, however, lie did not agree with the contention of Senator Lodge that adoption of the Hitchcock resolution would mean an endorsement of Secretary Lan sing's statement that- the United States was being drawn nearer to the conflict. "But let me say on ray own author ity," he said, "that I agree with the sentiment expressed from any quarter, whether by the secretary of state or anyone else, that this war cannot con tinue without America being involved in the conflict." When Senator Lewis finished, Sen ator Borah, republican, began an argu ment, contending "If the senate acts, it will intrude itself in an affair of ut most delicacy and grave import with out information other than in the newspapers and general sources."

REISHICK FOR FINANCE Richardson County Member May Be Chosen to Guide Money Matters. NORMAL FIGHT SIZZLING (From a Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln, Jan. 5. (Special.) During the adjournment of the legislature, which will not meet until Tuesday, the committees on committees of the two houses will endeavor to line-up the members for the dffferent assign ments, though all may not be assigned to the places they arc eventually to occupy. - Chairmen of the two committees have announced that nothing will be given out until the whole list is com plete, but it is rumored the most im portant places have already been filled. There does not appear to be much of a scramble for any of the chairmanships. Reishick of Richardson will prob ably be chairman of the finance, ways and means committee of the house, and Kohl of Wayne will have his old place as chairman of a like commit tee in the senate. Normal School Fight. The old protest against any mem ber of the finance committee of either house coming from a district where there is a state normal school, has again been brought up by Liggett of Seward. It is said that Ollis may get the chairmanship of schools in the house and that the chairmanship of cities and towns may again go to Richmond of Douglas. There is some opposition to' Richmond on the Douglas county delegation, and Bulla and Shannon are especially interested in commit tee assignments, which it is said they fear will harm their chances if Rich mond gets an important chairman ship, like that of cities and towns. How Sass May Land. Sass of Sarpy may land the chair manship of the committee on rail roads. This assignment was held by Regan of Platte last session. Ander son of Boyd is said to want the com mittee on roads, but it is pretty well understood that Soren Fries of How ard will have his old place as chair man of that committee if he wants it. Fries has been chairman of the committee many years, having served she termfc in the' legislature and' now starting the seventh. He has for two or more sessions been chairman of the committee on claims, and his efficient work along that line has made him a valuable member of the committee. May Give Way. It is possible that he may give way on roads to Anderson, if the latter desires the assignment, so that he can put in most of his committee time on the claims committee. Fries is well known to be fair and willing to (-change his mind if there is evidence enough to justify it ana tnat is tne kind of man the claims committee needs for its chairman. In the senate, outside of the finance committee, there appears to be little juggling for jobs. Some of the mem bers would like to be on certain com mittees, but as far as the public knows they are not making any threats if they don't get what they want.

On a Southern Pacific limited train, which left here late yesterday tor the east, special sessions of the United States district court will be held.

Greek Government Rejects Part of Entente's Remands London, Jan. 5. The Greek govern ment, acting in harmony with the kine. has decided to reject certain clauses of the entente note demanding reparation m consequence ot the re cent fighting at Athens, Rueter's cor respondent at Athens telegraphs. 1 he Oreek government is ready to discuss the other demands made by the allies. It has been determined not to declare war on the entente, but to submit passively to all coercion, relying upon ultimate recognition by the powers that blockade is an un merited punishment. The demands of the entente, pre sented late last month, require an apology and other measures of repara tion for the attack on entente forces at Athens, re-establishment of control by the allies ,of Greek railways, tele graph lines and posts and a large re duction in the number of Greek troops under arms. OFFICERS TAKE CLOTHING FROM MEN OF FOURTH Companies at Fort Crook Are Stripped of Uniforms and Forced Into Condemned Garments. MEN DESTROY UNIFORMS Assert They W,ill Not Tu" the Clothing They ' Paid For. P? PHIL HALL IN CHARGE Stripped of the uniforms and other clothing, which they insist they paid for, soldiers of the Fourth Nebraska regiment at Fort Crook are greatly aroused over the treatment they are receiving at the hands of the state and the government. Yesterday United States army offi cers and officers of the Fourth Ne braska regiment went through the barracks of a number of the com panies and took up all the uniforms and clothing of the soldiers. The men were left only condemned uni forms to wear home. The band of Friend was the hardest hit. In several instances, the musicians were ordered to strip off good shirts and in place put on torn and condemned ones. Fol lowing the visit band members had such ragged and unlit uniforms that many of them borrowed money and sent telegrams to their parents ask ing for civilian clothing. 1 Claim Paid for Clothing. The headquarters company also was hard hit. The appearance of the men, following the taking up of their uni forms, was greatly in contrast to their former neat dress. As company after company heard of the manner in which the band and headquarter's company had been de prived of their uniforms and other clothing, they determined that the state and government would not benefit by the act. In many in stances the soldiers cut and ripped their uniforms and in some cases deliberately destroyed them. The men say that they paid for the clothing and that it belongs to them. Do Not Claim Overcoats. If the slothing is taken up, they say, they are outthe money that they otherwise could have had on the re fund and also the clothing.

Officers at Fort Crook are sym pathisers with the men, but appar ently are unable to stop the taking up of the clothes. State to Profit. The only possible party to profit by the deal is the state, the soldiers say, and they cannot see why Ne braska would want to benefit by tak ing away their clothing, which they had previously worn. "Most of us only draw 50 cents a day," 'said one soldier, "and before I turn my uniform over I will set a match to it." The manner ..in which the state would be benefitted by the deal is (Contlniwd on Pars Two, Column Five.) Three Hundred Die In Japan Quake; 1,000 Houses Fall Tokio, Jan. 5.

The State de partment late today authorized the statement that President Wilson was not contemplating sending another peace note. Counsellor Polk gave out the fol lowing statement: "The report that the president is preparing to send a new note to the belligerent powers is false and without any foundation. The president has no second note in contemplation. , Following the cabinet meeting, Sec retary Lansing announced that Presi dent Wilson had authorized him to say that the American government had no other note in contemplation and that such information was being sent to all American diplomatic rep resentatives aboard. Secretary Lansing would not dis cuis the question further but it was understood that the reason for the announcement was apprehension on the part of the administration that reports ihat! another jmt. ..would, 'be seftf would alfect the entente re ply to the president's first note ex pected here in the near future.

JUST WANTED TO VISIT Sadness gave way to gladnes yesterday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Merker, 317 North Twenty-first street, when telephone messages from Lincoln conveyed the intelligence that their 9-year-old son, Carl, given up by police and parents as dead, was alive and well in Lincoln andiin the care of the chief of police there. And the grief-burdened father and mother were as unrestrained in the expression of their joy as they had been in the expression of their sor row. Carl left -home New Year's day in pursuit of youthful thieves who had stolen his sled. When he did not-return his father enlisted police assist ance and the, lad was traced to the river bank at the new Union Pacific bridge. There tracks indicated that the voungster had fallen into the river. . Then Carl's playmates w4.Uh- Laon found and, although Tejuctttit "atlfifth and boy had fallen into the stream while at play and had drowned. ': So plaus ible was the story that detectives gave up the lad as lost.. Dad Merker Angry, ' ' When told that Carl had been drowned the mother was driven air most to insanity and her husband be: lieves she would have lost her mind had not her only child turned up well and alive.- Merker was at police head: quarters when news was received from Lincoln that Carl -was in the detention home there. He had just expressed his dissatisfaction with po lice methods and announced that he intended to drag the river himself and would pay $50 reward for the recovery of the body. At first he doubted the truth of the news, but decided, regardless, to go to Lincoln by auto.- Then he was induced to put in a long distance call and get his boy on the 'phone. He waited nervously for an answer to the call and when it came Chief of Detectives Steve Maloney took the receiver. . Hears Boy'a Voice. . . "Who is this?" asked the chief while Merker stood close by. "Car-r-1," drawled a childish voice from the other end. "That's him," shouted the father as he grabbed the 'phone. "According to advices from Lincoln Carl was picked up at the Burlington station there last Tuesday and has since been held at the detention home. He told detention home officials his name and said that he had taken from under his father's pillow money enough to get him to Lincoln where he intended to visit a roomer who once, lived with his parents. Local officials are unable to account for the story told them by Joe Motto, 10 years of age, 501 Pierce street, and Sebasto Cerco, 11 years of age, that Carl had drowned, unless it was in spired by dime novels.

Fuller a moment before, upon the advice of his attorney, Guy Kiddoo, and the consent of County Attorney Magney, had pleaded guilty to sec ond degree murder to escape the death pnealty. The county attorney's information read before - the court when Fuller was arraigned charged murder in the first degree. Makei Talk to Court In tones scarcely audible to anyone save the judge and those close to Fuller, the former Lexington butcher, who shot down the Raclcr-Carberry woman in the tragedy enacted before ard apartments t lwenty Karnam streets, broke hit jittnee and fairly breathed the fol lnwinir. as tf weiffhlhir each word:1' . 'T tried for weeka to stave it off. I had prayed to God to strike her dead if she was not true to me, . 1 ' 'Here Judge Sears interrupted and said that the court would not accept his plea of guilty under those condi tions. "If you are possessed of the idea that God or anyone else had anything to do with your act, then that ques tion must go to a Jury, it is my duty to enter a-f 'ea of "not guilty" for you if you make . any qualifying clauses in your plea of guilty to cold, premeditated murder. Magney Becomes Interested. Here County Attorney Magney broke in and declared that Fuller knew as well, as anyone else what he was talking' about and apparently wanted to plead guilty to second de gree murder.- Fuller's attorney also said that there was no doubt but that the plea of "guilty" was what his client meant. Judge Sears repeated the query, "Guilty or not guilty?" Fuller hesitated, looked at the floor, shifted from one foot to the other, and then replied, in a low, impas- sionate voice: res,1 1 m guilty. 1 committed a great crime. Take me and hang me now if you want to do anything you want with me." Judge Sears then read the sentence: "Hard labor in the state penitentiary for the term of your natural life." In passing the sentence the judge tola fuller tnat ne nad forgotten the duty which he owed his family." Fuller has a wife and several chil dren in Campbell, Neb. . Plea for Haste. The self-confessed murderer's coun sel made one last request that his client be taken to the penitentiary immcuiaiciy. "That's up to the sheriff's office, remarked the judge. "They can take him there this afternoon as far as l'-fn concerned." After Fuller had been taken back to the county jail A. F. Perrier of Julesburg, Colo., deputy district at torney and assistant county attorney of Sedgwick county, grandfather of the girl slam- by hullcr, broke down and cried. Mr. Perrier has been in Omaha for several dau to "see that his dead granddaughter got justice." "I've figured in scores of murder cases, sobbed Mr. Perrier, "but never one so close to me as this."

Smouldering rumors that somebody made money in the stock market with "leak" in formation about the sending of Pres ident Wilson's peace note blazed up at a notable .. im of tin house rules committee today at its first hearing on Representative : Wood's resolution for investigation. C. .cifically declaring he made charges a -inst no one and was pre senting only information that had come to him, Wood brought in the names of Secretary Tumulty, "a Mr. Boiling," a brother of President Wil- . son's wife, whom he did not further identify; Bernard Baruch, a New York stock operator; Otto H. Kahn of Kuhn, Loeb & -o.; Thompson & McKinnon and Lamson Bros. & Co., Chicago brokers; W. E. F. H.:tton & Co., New York brokers, and F. A.

Curtis, an independent Nw York stock opera tor. -Closed Sesdon ii Refused. Wood disclaimed intending to give the impression that he believed that Mr. Tumulty, or anyone else for that matter, profited by the so-called leak; that he was merely stating what had come to him; that he realized danger of making au.li statements in public and for that reasc:: he had preferred to make his statement in secret ses sion, which the committee denied. At the conclusion of today's session . Chairman Henry announced that Sec retary Tumulty would appear without subpoenae, and that subpoenas should be ordered for Curtis and Baruch.
