WILSON REPLIES TO
President Tells Delegation
Country Faced by Moment
WILL TRY TO AVERT WAR
Washington, Feb. 28 President
Wilson told peace" advocates who
called on him today to protest against
the steps he proposes in dealing with
Germany, that the country was faced
by a momentous problem in the pres
ent situation, that he had always been
lor peace, and would do everything
within his cower to maintain it.
The president received their sug
gestions sympathetically, memDers ot
the delectation said, but told them the
country must realize the magnitude of

explanation, declared that the people
of Omaha and Douglas county are
already stasrirerina under their load
of taxation, and with $700,000 of
liquor license money no longer com
ing in they would have to be taxed
more than ever for their own schools;
hence he was against the bill.
Not Fighting University.
When it came his turn to vote, Mr.
Taylor made the significant state
ment that the University of Nebras
ka and the state normal schools are
asking for large aopropriations and
that he was not opposing them. He
even admitted that'tnesc appropria
tions would be for the benefit ot the
entire state, and he claimed that his
plan for state aid to centralized
rural schools would also be for the
mood of the whole state.
As Mr. Taylor made a hard fight
against the university appropriations
in the 1915 session, his declaration
on the floor was taken as signifying
that he has no intention of renewing
it this year.
The Custer members, however,
took hard rap at the Omaha medi
cal college,' saying that it is asking
for $365,000 in order to educate 146
young doctors "who are not pro
ducers and never will be."
Repeated points of order were
made bv Messrs. Ainlav. Leidizh
and Trumble that Taylor was mak
ing a speech in the guise of explain
ing his vote. I he latter, however,
held the floor until he got through
and then sat down.
Other School Bills.
Several other rurat school bills
were passed, among them to Ollis bill
requiring an eight months' term of
school in districts having trom twen
ty to seventv-nve pupils, and the
three Reed bills requiring a ten-grade
course of study In one-room country
schools. The White bill, making a
majority vote sufficient to carry
bonder Instead of two-thirds, also
pasted. :, . '
The bill calling for smaller elee
tion districts in Douglas county and
the Dorsey bill permitting division of
townships under thej supervisor sys
tem where the population is sufficient
to justify it, also passed.

Photos Are Taken.
An early adiurnmcnt was taken
after the morning session in order
that Dr. Condra of the conservation
commission might' take pictures of
the members in different attitudes,
some of the insisting that they
should be taken so it would look as
if the "house were In session and
capable of transacting business." '

State Department Officials De
clare Chancellor s Eemarkg
Contain Little Truth,
STATEMENTS ASE ABSURD
Washington, Feb. 28. Surprise, bor
dering on indignation, was voiced to
day over Chancellor von Bethmann
Hollweg's speech to the Reichstag.
State department officials are
amazed that the chancellor should.
seek further to confuse German'
American relations with a series of
statements which they say are pal
pably opposed to the most obvious
events of recent history.
The chancellor's statement that the
United States' severed relations
"brusquely" is viewed as too absurd
for discussion. It is pointed out that
the American correspondence had
plainly threatened such action; that
Lount von Bernstorft had said sev
eral days beforehand that he expected,
to oe dismissed, ana mat tne tier
man government had shewn its real
ization of the coming break by send'
ing out orders to disable its merchant
ships in this country.
It is also pointed out that while
the United States delayed three days
in taking the action it had clearly
foreshadowed m several notes, Ger

many put into effect its campaign of
ruthlessness on eight hours' notice
after months of assurances that it had
no intentitfn of taking such a step. -
The statement that Germany in its
Sussex note reserved a new course
of action is declared wholly unjusti
fied The United States soeciftcally
-refused, to accept that condition and
in default of any reply trom Ger
many was justified in believing that
Germany adhered to its point of
view. In diplomacy the last note be
tween two nations is the binding
note, and stands in all particulars un
til Honied hv one or the other.
The chancellor's complaint that he
received only Reuter dispatches and
a verbal statement to the foreign
minister as to the causes of the break,
recalls that a note setting out the
reasons for the action of the United
States was handed to Count von
Bernstorff with his passports.
The statement condemning Presi
dent Wilson for announcing an em
bargo on arms to Mexico and not to
Europe was dismissed as absurd and
incorrect The cases are held to be
in no way parallel as Mexico was in

decrease in the price of cabbage was
also shown. Other staples showed
little change. - " '
