Them, Demanded Unless
Warships Attend.
New York, Feb. 10. Unless the
United States government provides
convoys or guns and gunners to pro
tect its ships, the American Line,
owners ofthe steamships, St. Louis,
St Paul and other, liners, will not
send them across the Atlantic, it was
announced here today by P. A. S.
Franklin, president of the Internr.
tionarilercantile Marine.
u Safe arrival at Genoa last Thursday
of the Italian steamer, Sante Alighieri,
which left this port January 24, was
announced here today in a cablegram
received by the ship's agents. It
carried between 400 and 500 passen
gers. . Depends on Government
This decision was reached after the
failure of efforts to provide their own
defensive armament Mr. . Franklin
said. "The 'only source of supply of
guns in ' mis country, ne added,
"seems to be the United States gov
ernment, and our government seems
disinclined to afford this protection."
"As far as the American line is
concerned," said Mr. Franklin, "we
have done our best in trying to se
cure tne necessary guns and gun
crews, but it does not seem possible
that private corporations will be able
properly to equip their ships with de
fensive armament.
Otherwise Can't SaiL
"The American Line steamers will
not be able to sail at all unless the
government decides either to provide
convoys or put on each of our steam
ers the guns and trained gunners es
sential to the safety of the passen
gers and the crew."
The sailing of the Swedish-American
liner, Stockholm, from this port
Monday, February 12, for Gothen-'
burg, has been postponed indefinitely
by instructions received today by the

Senator Confesses His Mistake
in Sponsoring Original .
Ward Election Bill.
State Senator Howell yesterday ad
mitted publicly that in sponsoring the
original ward-election school board
bill, he erred, eggregionsiy erred, and
in a contrite manner he said lie was
doing his level best to make amends
and get beyond the range of the with
ering fire since directed gainst Him.
He explained that his bill had been
withdrawn and that he proposed to
offer amendments to a similar bill
comping up from the house.
The meeting at the council club
rooms was attended by a goodly of
prominent men and women, who ex
changed a wide range of views and
at time engaged in sharp polemics.
The net result of the meeting was
that M. A. Hall. secured adoption of
a resolution, that it was the sence
of the meeting that the Douglas
county representatives and senators
use their influence to defeat any legis
lation which would require election of
Omaha school board members by
wards. Mr. Hall tried to secure
adoption of another resolution against
the primary school bill, but he failed
in that effort Senator Strehlow an
nounced that on next Thursday aft
ernoon at 2 o'clock, in the state sen
ate chamber, the committee on privi
leges and elections, will grant a
hearing. ,. , ... ..... .
Committee To Protest.
Special committee of two women
and three men will be selected to
represent the protestants. It is be
lieved the meeting will yield interest
ing expressions of opinions. ,
Senator Howell explained that he
proposed to amend the Goodall ward
election bill in the nouse to provide
that an election would be held in
1920 and every two years thereafter,
which would not legislate any mem
bers of the present board out of of
fice, but would extend the terms of
some of the members. He said he
was opposed to legislating anybody
out ot omce.
"This is not a ward-election bill.
because everybody would vote for the
candidates of all wards and at the
regular election would likewise vote
for the nominees of all wards." ex
plained Senator Howell. He added
that the primary school bill aDnlied
to all cities of the state having more
tnan iu.uuu population.
Goodall Defends Bill.
Representative Goodall. defendinz
his bill in the house, said: "I will
stand by my bill. Our present-system
of electing school board mem
bers is staxation without represen
tation. We should have members on
the board from the -districts where
Ihey raise kids by the bushel."
'Beat the bill if vou can. but
don't try to beat it over my shoulders.
I have done my. best to correct my
mistake. If you resolve to oppose the
primary Dill yon will antagonize the
legislature. The legislature mav do
away with your entire school board,"
was the consolation offered by Sen
ator Howell, when the discussion
"We got good results last t fall
without any school board primary. It
is hard enough to got good men to
run for the board without imoosine

Women Disapprove.
Mrs. C. R. Thiem, president of the
Miller Park Mothers' club, expressed
her disapproval of ward election of
school board members in this man
ner: "Every ward may not have men
capable of serving as school board
members," Mrs. Halleck Rose and
Miss Kate McHugh opposed the ward
City Attorney Rinc, Robert Smith
and J. H. Dumont were among those
who led the fight in favor of the
primary election for school board
members, with the result that the
meeting finally agreed not to take
action against the primary bill, par
ticularly in view of the fact that it
applied to all cities of more than
10,000 population and said to have
been made state-wide with a view
of purifying school politics in Lincoln.
The Douglas county senators made
it pain that if Omaha people want to
kill this school board legilation, they
must prevail upon the privileges and
elections next Thursday afternoon at

Despite the fact that details of

dency to worry and the; delicacy of

no objection has been raised to Eng

Lansing Doubts Von Sturm Story.
Washington, Feb. 10. The state
ment attributed to Dr. William von
Sturm, German under secretary for
foreign affairs, that Germany has de
tained Ambassador Gerard because
Count von Bernstorff had been pre
vented by this country from tele
graphing that he had received his
passports, was held by Secretary
Lansing today to be improbable. The
secretary said:
"I loubt he authenticity of a state
ment of that kind, which is S" directly
contrary to the facts. Every facility
and convenience has been placed be
fore Count von Bernstorff, and he
would have been allowed to send a
full statement by wireless regarding
the severance.
"Whether he availed himself of this
or not is his responsibility. The Ger
man government has been informed
with the fullest detail of all events in
this country through two different
sources, the Swiss minister here, who
has been empowered to represent Ger
man interests, and the Spanish ambas
sador in Berlin, through whom com
munications have gone. 1 - have no
reason not to believe that there has
been a very unusual delay m Ambas
sador Gerard's departure."
secretary Lansing announces todav
receipt of advices from the Swiss min
ister here that Mr. Gerard, his staff
and fifty other Americans would leave
Berlin tonight for the Swiss border,
where he will be met by officials of
the Swiss government.
A Berlin dispatch last night said
that Mr. Gerard's departure had been
again changed and that he would not
leave Germany until Count von Bern
storff and his suite leave this coun
try on February 13 has not been con
firmed through official channels. Ab
solute incredulity was expressed,
however, that the German government
would take such action. , ......
