LIBERTY BONDS ARE
Lawrence Chamberlain, Lead
ing New York Bond Author
ity, and Dwight Hillis Talk
to Commercial Club Men.
Washington, June 9. With only
a week left in which to subscribe
to the Liberty loan, subscriptions
must come at the rate of 1100,000,.
000 a day to make up the total of
$2,000,000,000. The daily average of
subscriptions has been only $54.
000,000. "This is a national crisis; the soldier
must protect the state; the business
man must equip the soldier, otherwise
the republic and our allies cannot
survive," said Rev. Newell Dwight
hillis of Brooklyn in his Liberty loan
talk to Commercial club men at the
club rooms at noon.
"It is America's best investment.
Everyone should buy a bond. The pri
vate investor must take a good share,"
said Lawrence Chamberlain of New
York, recognized authority on bonds,
in his talk on the same subject.
. The men are traveling together.
Their itinerary includea thirty cities
in eighteen states. They are holding
, mass meetings to stimulate the pur
chase of the Liberty bonds.
Judge W. D. McHugli presided at
. Crisis Upon Us.
"Like an advancing storm, suddenly
a crisis has come upon our beloved
country," said Rev. Mr. Hillis. "Not
since Fort Sumpter ,was fired upon
has the sky been so black. With
France and England we have now
entered upon the most terrible war
that ever shook the earth.
"One hundred and forty years ago
our fathers founded this republic,
dedicated to independence, equality
and self-government In 1776 three
millions of people, controlling a little
fringe of land on the Atlantic coast,
founded our free institutions. Socn
France and Switzerland followed our
lead, until today there are more than
twenty republics, including eleven
hundred millions of people, control
ling nine-tenths of the land of the
globe. Over against the democracy
of the free people, with their manu
facturing life, stands the autocracy of
Germany, with her military life. In
this terrible war autocracy and dem
ocracy are in a death grapple.
Against Free Peoples.
'Today we behold a nation using
every power of the intellect, every
secret of science, every form of or
ganized efficiency, not to build up and
better the Germans, but to strike
down and ruin peaceful Belgians and
the French peasants.
"Over against the free peoples, em
phasizing industry, stands autocratic
Germany, that has turned its land
into a military machine, and for years
prepared for a calculated and re
morseless use of steel, fiery gas, dyna
mite,, torpedoes, for killing any people
whose industrial prosperity either ex
ceeds theirs or stands in the way of
their ambitious schemes.
"Once Rome was rover against
. Carthage, like two castles over
against each other, with cannon shot
ted to the muzzle. Today, German
autocracy and militarism is over
against the free peoples as a castle
with cannon belching flame is over
against a cathedral or the library of
Louvain, the picture gallery, the fac
tory and the home."
Loyalty Bids Support
The speaker declared that loyalty
to our fathers bids us support the Lib
erty loan, and that even self-interest
urges support He pointed to the sit
uation in Russia in which democracy,
10 recently born, has given place to
mobocracy," which brought about
the collapse of Russia.
He concluded by saying; "The vic
tory of the Liberty loan and this war,
safeguarding democracy,- is to be the
most glorious victory that has ever
blessed the human race."
Mr. Chamberlain urged that a large
percentage of the $2,000,000,000 Lib
erty loan bonds be taken by private
investors. He held this to be es
sential. He referred to the $25,000,000
bond purchase made by the steel
corporation, and held this to be ex
- cellent, but cautioned, "It is sound and
proper, within certain limits, that in
stitutions such as that to which I have
referred, shall join in these subscrip
tions, but if they buy too much, the
money thus employed is diverted
from the ordinary channels of busi
ness with detriment to the national

ROYAL ROBES FOR
At Adis Abena, Yossou Crowns
Daughter of Memelek Em
press of Abyssinia.
MUCH POMP AND SPLENDOR
(Correspondence of Tha Associated Prats.)
Adis, Abena, Abysinnia, April 15.
The coronation of the new empress of
Abyssinia, Zeodito, was marked by a
week's holiday for everybody in the
country. It was particularly an occa
sion of rejoicing for those who owed
the government a good-shred tax bill,
for the empress in a special corona
tion day edict exempted all taxpayers
from arrears and pardoned all crim
inals who were still at large.
The outside world was represented
at the festivities of coronation week
by the ministers of the entente pow
ers and a handful of Europeans living
in Adis Abeba. No European was al
lowed to be present at the actual
crowning, which took place at the un
usual hour of 4 a. m. at the state
Cathedral of St. George. The cere
monies here were somewhat protract
ed, and it was 8:30 when the empress
wearing her crown emerged from the
cathedral and took her seat on a
throne in the courtyard of the cathe
dral. Here the diplomatic corps and
foreign guests were seated on one
side of the platform, while the native
chiefs and ministers of state occupied
the other side. Two princesses had
places of honor on either side of her
majesty, while on the steps of the
throne stood the regent, Kas I atari,
and Ras Kassa, a cousin of the late
Bishop Delivers Oration.
The diplomatic corps, followed by
the European colony and the Abysin-
tan chiefs, passed in single hie beiore
the empress, bowed ceremoniously
and resumed their seats. Then the
bishop of Abyssinia made the oration
of the day, describing the events that
had led to the dethronement of Em
peror Lidj Yassouand the proclama
tion of Princess Zeodito as empress,
and expressing the hope that the reign
of "this illustrious daughter of the
illustrious Menelek" would be marked
by prosperity and peace.
The empress replied by reading a
S reclamation inviting her people to
ring their complaints to her personal
Procession is Spectacular.
At the close of the speech making
there was a spectacular procession
from the cathedral to the royal palace.
The distance is nearly two miles, and
the procession took two and a half
hours to cover it. The whole route
was splendidly decorated with tri
umphal arches erected every few
yards. A detachment of cavalry, led
by the ministry of war, marshalled the
procession, followed by a military
baud, infantry and artillery. The state
coach, drawn by eight white horses,
was preceded by carriages bearing the
maids of honor and the women of the
On each side of the coach stood a
page, whose duty was to receive and
return all the salutes of the crowd,
thus sparing the empress a certain
amount of trouble. The carriage was
escorted by three men on horseback,
the three most powerful nobles in the
empire. Behind the state carriage
came the bishop and then the diplo
matic corps and guests, all on horse
back. The parade reached the royal palace
m time for a four-hour banquet, con
cluding the festivities of the first day.
German Missions Close
For Lack of Ministers
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
London, May 3. Bishop Mont
gomery, in his report at the 216th
annual meeting of the Society of the
Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign
Parts, expressed regret that the Ger
man missions throughout the world
had collapsed as a result of absence
of hundreds of German pastors, who
were faithful, as all good missionar
ies are, to their flocks. It is deplorable

association of our society with the

NEW JEWISH EPOCH,
Cabinet Member Says Russia
and Palestine Now Offer
Race Complete Freedom.
WILL END THE MIGRATION
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
London, April 30. "The news of
the past few weeks, both from Russia
and from Palestine, points to the
opening of a new era for the Jewish
race," declared Sir Alfred Mond in an
interview tocky. Sir Alfred, who
holds the post of first commissioner
for works in the Lloyd George cab
inet, is the only Jewish member' of
the present ministry.
" "In Russia," he explained, "the
revolution brings the promise of com
plete political emancipation; in Pales
tine the British advance indicates in
the near future the realization of some
modified form of a national ideal
which most Jews have held dear for
"Of the two events the revolution
in Russia is much the more important
development so far as Jews are con
cerned, for it applies to 5,000,000 of
my race. Nothing like this number
could possibly be affected by the ma
turing of the Palestine ideal.
"With the advent of a liberal regime
in Russia the sentiment of America
has changed, and Jewish influence,
which was exerted on the side of anti
Russian feeling in America, is now
pro-Russian a very remarkable but
quite natural transformation.
immigration Will Diminish.
"Jewish emigration from Russia to
the United States will now diminish,
for the conditions that made for this
emigration no longer operate. Under
the new era the Russian Jews should
shed the characteristics which are
largely due to repression, to exclusion
from the life of the nation. "Em
braced in the nation, they will be
moulded by the national genius of the
Kussian people while rctaininz their
Russia will find now that its new
born Jews are a tremendous asset.
Wherever the Jew has received full
liberty, as, in England and the United
States, he has proved himself an en
ergetic, enterprising and loyal citizen.
In many branches of industry,
finance, law and medicine he has ex
celled. "When I was in New York the tre
mendous zest for educational prog
ress even among the most illiterate
of the Jews who had emigrated there,
was one of the many things that im
pressed me. I visited an extremely
tine technical school, built by the mu
nicipality of New York, one of the
finest institutions of its kind I have
ever seen, and there I was told that
a very large proportion of the pupils
were children of the poorest Jewish
parents who had come from Russia.
Jews Not Hostile.
"Jews in Russia have never been
hostile to the people of Russia, but
only to the despotic form of govern
ment there, and this hostility un
doubtedly played a great part in feed

Turning'to the opportunity opened
up for the Jewish race in Palestine
by the entrance of the British armies,
Sir Alfred said: "Are the Jews suita

to the Jewish agricultural colonies

years gives an affirmative answer.
