AVERS IS MISUNDERSTOOD
Washington, Jan. 30. Debate on
President Wilson's world peace pro
posals was brought an abrupt end
in the senate late today when Senator
Cummins' motion to call up his reso
lution for its exclusive debate was
tabled on motion of Senator Williams,
The vote to table the motion was
38 to 30. Senator Martine was the
,only democrat who voted with the
republicans in favor of taking up the
What It Would Lead To. .
Opening debate in the senate today
'on President Wilson's world peace
proposals, Senator Cummins, republi
can, declared that to do what the
president suggests would involve the
United States either in almost con
stant world war or constant rebellion
against the authority of world sover
eignty the president proposes.
Asserting that he stood with the
president in every moral effort pos
sible to bring an end to the present
war. Senator Cummins said he re
fused to follow him "when he leads
the way toward the world sovereignty
which he has proposed."
Lewis Has Resolution.
Bfore Senator Cummins began
speaking Senator Lewis, democratic
whip, most prominent senate defender
of the president's peace moves, in
troduced a resolution which he tem
' porarily had laid on the table, de
. daring that the address which the
Iowa senator'criticised did not sug
gest abolition or limitation of the
Monroe doctrine or military aggres
sion by the United States in foreign
Senator Cummins spoke directly to
his resolution, which would set aside
time for exclusive debate of the presi
dent's recent peace address, but he de
parted from that phase to discuss its
merits which had aroused, thought
and debate throughout the civilized
Declaring .that the message "ojtfr-rw"-ffaws
with just anT' beautiful senti
ments so eternally right that they
instantly command the approval of all
lovers of humanity," Senator Cum
mins said it was easy to raise the
banner of humanitarism but that "it is
a 'sad spectacle, however, to see a
flag raised in devotion to the heaven
of peace leading a march straight to
the hell of war."
"I affirm as my belief," said Sena
tor Cummins, "that if this country
shall do what the president proposes
we will be involved, either in almost
continuous war waged all over the
world, or we will be engaged in al
most constant rebellion against the
authority which he proposed to set
up over us. No man shall accuse me
of questioning the sincerity of the
president in his attachment to the doc
trine he advocates, nor must, it be in
sisted that I doubt the honesty of his
conviction tnat the new world power
will fairly redivide the earth among
nations and will be able to preserve
peace among them. If I did not think
, that he is honest in this delusion I
would not be interested in the discus
sion. Theory Is Not New.
"If he stood alone as a proponent
of a new theory in human affairs, it
might be not necessary to make it the
subject of grave consideration. But
the truth is that the proposal has

dream of sages and philosophers and

for Investigation by Body
INSPECT THE COURT JAIL
Court house .gossip has it that one
of the grand jury probes planned for
this week will be into the H. C. of L.
The little bird credited with whisper
ing with information in the face of
discouraging frowns from the sixteen
jurymen and the county attorney's
chief deputy, who is head ringmaster
and whip-cracker at the utra-secret
conclaves, hinted that the body may
wrestle with and floor the"vampiric
wretches" holding the high hands in
the game with Mr. Common People.
Mr. Common People says the cards
have been stacked.
The grand jury knocked off work
for the day early yesterday afternoon
after ab usy session at. which two true
bills were returned and a host of wit
nesses subpoenaed and examined in
the closely-guarded chambers on the
fourth floor of the court house.
Make Vice Sweep.
It is understood that the initial true
bills returned by the present grand
jury, the first in Omaha in two years,
were against persons charged with
violations of laws governing vice sup
pression. Rumors that the grand jury is mak
ing a thorough investigation of moral
conditions of the neighborhoods in
the territory contiguous to the Cen
tral High school and the High School
of Commerce with a view of dry
cleaning the environments of the stu
dents were heightened when sub
poeneas were isued for J. C. Masters
and K. F. Adams, superintendents of
the two institutions.
Both Mr. Masters and Mr. Adams
appeared before1 the grand jury as
witnesses. The subpoenae for Mr.
Adams, superintendent of the High
School of Commerce, was issued
shortly after 11 o'clock and he entered
the "star chamber" before noon.

Another witness who wat called to
testify before the grand jury soon
aftef it got down to business Tues
day morning was Probation Officer
Miller, most active of juvenile court
workers and .wha nvtde-thc statement
several wceks ago that there were
conditions in Omaha vitally affecting
the moral welfare of young people,
which the Tjody rould do well to in

One of the first acts of the grand
jury Tuesday morning was to inspect
the .county jail. Sheriff Clark acted
as guide and escorted the members
of the body through the county bas
tile, showing them every nook and
corner. Prisoners were quizzed by
the jurors as to their treatment and
of the conditions there.
To Inspect Hospital.
One woman prisoner volunteered
the information that "the:- were

Opposition to Ward
Election for School
Board Is Voiced
Opposition to the system of electing
school board members in Omaha by
wards is voiced by the Commercial
club. This came from the executive
committee in its meeting yesterday
noon when a number of bills pending
in the legislature were discussed.
The committee also favored the
state appropriation of $75,000 for an
armory in Omaha for the local com
panies of the state militia.
The proposed bill permitting
nurses after six months' training, to
become registered nurses on passing
the requisite examination was also
strongly opposed by the club. The
stand of the club on these matters will
be duly communicated to the Douglas
county delegation at the legislature.

the price of grade B milk from 10 to
11 cents a quart and adds 2 cents a

ON PEACE NOTE
Hutton, Big New' York Broker,
Bring Telegram Before
' Committee Which Gives
"Tip" on Message,
WIRED ALL OVER COUNTRY
Must Have Come From Some
one Who Had Seen Docu
ment, it Is Believed.
PBOBE IS TO BE SEARCHING
New York, Jan. 30. From the file
of a Wall Street brokerage house,
congressional i ... Inquisitors today
brought light private and confidential,
telegrams regarded in sorqe quarters
as definitely indicating that there was
a "leak" on President Wilson's recent
peace note. , ' .
The most sensational telegram,
containing a brief but remarkably ac
curate forecast ot the contents ot tne
note, was sent bv E. F. Hutton and
company, one of the largest brokerage
nouses m tne street, over us private
wires to scores of other brokers with
whom it did business throughout the
country, on the afternoon of Decem
ber 20, more than three hours be
fore the first copies of the note were
handed to newspaper men by Sec
Previously Sent Abroad. '
At the time the Hutton message
was sent, according to the testimony
of Secretary Lansing before the com
mittee in Washington, no one in this
country lave persons connected with
the preparation and dispatch of the
note, had as much information re
garding its contents as the message
revealed. The note previously had
been sent abroad in code. Publication
of the note followed transmission of
th Hutton message to various brok
ers by more than ten hours. "
: Information on which the message
to brokers was based, Edward F. Hut
ton, head of the firm, testified, came
in another message, now missing,
from F, A, .Connelly, of F. A. Con
nelly & Co., a Washington brokerage
house, in which R. W. Boiling, a
brother-in-law of President Wilson, Is
a partner, Connelly was declared by
Hutton to be hastening to New York
tonight to appear before the commit
tee tomorrow, i
- ' Based on General Rumor.
' Hutton testified his understanding
was that Connelly's information re
garding, the jnote was based on. gen '
era! rumor. Indicative' "that other
brokerage concerns were in posses
sion of similar information, Hutton
said,' was another message he pro
duced, which Clement, Curtis & Co.,
of Chicago, sent his house rpior to
Connelly's first mesage referring to a
statement to be issued by the State
department, "intended to promote
peace prospects." This message con
tained no details.
Certain members of the committee,'
however, privately expressed convic
tion that the person who originally
supplied the information on which
Connelly's missing message was
based, either had read the president's
note or obtained an excellent resume
of it.-'.- -'.- - : -.;
"Some one read the note," Repre
sentative Campbell of Kansas, ranking
republican member of the committee,
declared after the close of the hear
ing. Chairman Henry and Sherman
L. Whipple, eounsel for the commit
tee, declined o express any viewt
on the situation. v -
Will Spare No Effort "
No effort will be spared, Mr.
Whipple announced, to throw the
fullest light on the origin and trans
mission of the Connelly information,
both in the message from Washington
to E. F. Hutton & Co., and the sub
sequent message sent by them to their
correspondents. The latter message,
according to Hutton, was prepared by
George S. Ellis, jr., a member qf the
firm who is now ill in Georgia, he
said. Hutton also requested the com-"
mittee not to call Ellis if it can be
avoided. : ,
Chairman " Henry, determined to
have Ellis testify,! said he probably
would be examined next week in
Washington. Telegraph operators and
others who had to do with the trans
mission of the message also are to be
interrogated. Other members of the
Connelly firm also probably will be
called. Mr. Boiling already has testi
fied at a Washington hearing that he '
had nothing to do with a "leak" of
Connelly Calls on Hutton. '
Mr. Boiling's connection with the
Connelly firm was the .subject of
much interrogation by Mr. Whipple
during the examination of Mr. Hut
ton, when the broker first took the
stand. Hutton told of Coc:.elly call-
