FIGHT ON HOLLWEG
Organ Says Kaiser Must Elim
inate Chancellor if He
Would Save His
Copenhagen (Via London), May 2.
The Germania, organ of the clerical
party, indicates that Chancellor von
Bethmann-Hollweg docs not intend to
make a statement with regard to
peace terms before the ' Reichstag,
having finally decided that it was in
advisable at the present time.
' Meanwhile the conservatives are
growing more desperate as the work
of the constitutional revision commit
tee proceeds without any intervention
from the government to dam the
wave of reform which threatens the
political influence of the junkers.
"Where is Hindenburg to raise the
fallen kaiser's banner again and de
fend the rights of the throne?" cries
Prince Zu Salm-Horstmar in the
' Prussian House of Lords. The prince
is president of the German Naval
league and one of the war horses of
the conservative old guard.
The South German Gazette, the or
gan of the south German cftnserva
tives, suggests sending a deputation
to the emperor to warn him that his
throne is in danger unless he dis
misses Von Bethmann-Hollweg.
The suggestion is taken up by the
Kreuz Zeitung, representing the Prus
sian junkers and the military aristoc
racy, the Deutche Zeitung and the
Other conservative papers echo the
cry that the Hohenzollern throne is
tottering unless a new chancellor
comet to suppress the reform move
ment with an iron hand. In spite of
all Dr. Von Bethmann-Hollweg still
seems very strong and there is no in
dication that the emperor's confidence
in him is seriously shaken.

Lincoln, Neb., May 12. (Special.)
Will some good tried and true patriot
who knows what a- "reasonable
amount" of liquor is as set forth in
the new prohibition law, inform the
attorney general of Nebraska, so he
can answer correspondence received
covering that question.
Mr. Reed, , not being an imbiber,
does not consider himself competent
to judge. He said today that in his
opinion it would depend a great deal
on the age of an individual. Using
the insurance tables, a man 25 years
of age would naturally be expected to
live longer than a man 50 or 75 years
of age and therefore it would require
more liquor because ot the longer
duration of life.
The county attorney of Thurston
county writes that there is a certain
farmer in that country who since
April 27 is said to have stored in his
home 150 gallons of whisky and
twenty-six barrels of beer. He de
