Government Will Not Accept
Any Portion of $700,000,000
Oversubscription to Lib
erty Bonds.
Kana City, Mo, June 17. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Nebraska'! Liberty
bond contribution was announced
Saturday as S17.800.700. Omaha's
total is $8,685,950; Lincoln, $1,871,
700; country banks, 17.235,050. Ne
braska's quota, figured in advance of
the campaign, was 16,500,000.
McAdoo Gives Decision.
Washington. June 17. Secretary
McAdoo announced Saturday that no
part of the great oversubscription to
the Liberty loan would be accepted
and that his statement of May 10, in
which he declared that the issue
would be limited to $2,000,000,000,
stood good now at then.
llr. McAuoo's announcement will
result in paring down hundreds of the
larger subscriptions until the total
reaches the $2,000,000,000 limit. How
much will have to be taken from the
amount the country offered to take
was still an unknown matter tonight,
x he ovcrsuhscripion will not fall be
low $700,000,000 it seemed certain and
way go as high as $900,000,000.
The grand total of subscriptions will
not be known until Monday at the
earliest. In disposing of reports that
the amount of the issue might be en
larged to include all offers, Mr. Mc
Adoo issued the following statement:
Allotments Not in Excess.
"Allotments of Liberty bonds will
not be made in excess of the $2,000,
(100,000 offered. I announced this on
May 10. when the details of the loan
were first published.
"I have asked the reserve banks to
tabulate separately and on supple
mentary lists the subscriptions re
ceived yesterday, June 15, after noon,
in order that I may be in a position
to consider in making allotment of
the $2,000,000,000 of bonds those ap
plications which through no fault of
the? subscriber were not recorded on
"It is impossible to foretell what
decision will be reached in this mat
ter or to determine the basis upon
which allotments will be made until
substantially definite returns have
been received from the several federal
reserve banks. The organizations of
these banks, unusually efficient as
they are. have been overwhelmed by
the multitude of applications received
at the last moment.
To Accept Small Applications.
"1 shall avail myself of the right re
served in the circular offering th:
londs to allot in full upon applica
tion fur .smaller amounts of bonds
and In reduce allotments on applica
tion (nr larger amounts, as such ac
tion v ill he clearl) in the public iu
lernt." Mr. McAdoo today acknowledged
vi'.hjtfimiccialim the work .of the
foric of puliliciiy which aided in the
flotation of e loan.
"The Liberty loan campaign," he
aid, "was ciintially one of educa
tion and without the generous and
patriotic support of the press of the
nation, the nope of those in charge
that it would be a popular loan would
not have been realized. The untiring
efforts of the newspapers throughout
the campaign were a constant inspira
tion to the various other groups of
''At a time when news space was at
a premium the Liberty loan was fea
tured at length. The foreign language
press in thirty-six languages gave
daily proof of the undoubted loyalty
of peoples of foreign birth,
"t shall be most grateful to the
press if this acknowledgment is given
wide publicity.''
Reports to the treasury at the time
of cosing today from all reserve
hauls aiai'ril that the work of tabular
inn returns was progressing at all
banks and in several cases it was stag
ed tabulations probably could not be
finished until Monday.

regard to holding up mails, even if
the sacks' do contain daily papers:
"By referring to my letter of the
first inst., with reference to Idaho
mails, you will note that I stated
that Mr. Johnson desires that all un
important mail be withheld. That tf
in doing so some daily papers of remote-
origin be withheld, you would
be protected in the matter.
"I will ask you to give this matter
careful attention, not only with ref
erence to Idaho, but to all mails that
are being withheld. There seems to
be a tendency at this time to let
mails go forward that had previously
been held, and the volume of mails
on trains is increasing.
"Please give this matter close at
anA that all who ar in-
iciit.vjii, iiv - -
structed to withold mails are doing
their duty in tnis respect, anu mat
the volume of paper mail sent out in
trains is reduced to the minimum."

American Commissioner in
Petroprad Tells Slavs This
Nation Will Fight With
Them Against Foe.
(Continuril from Tan On..)
and that our two great nations will
march side-hy-side in the triumphant
progress of democracy until the Old
order everywhere has passed away
and the world is free.
Military Autocracy Threatens.
"One fearful daigir threatens the
liberty of both nations. The armed
forces of a military autocracy are at
the gates of Kussla and the allies.
The triumph of German arms will
mean the death of liberty in Russia.
No enemy is at the gates of Amer
ica, but America has come to realize
that the triumph of German arms
means the death of liberty in the
world; that we who love liberty and
would keep it, must fight for it and
fight for it now, when the free demo
cracies of the world may be strong
in union and not delay until they may
be beaten down separately in succes
sion. "So America sends another message
to Russia that we are going to fight
and have already begun to fight for
your freedom equally with our own,
and we ask you to fight for our free
dom equally with yours. We should
make your cause ours and our cause
yours, and with a common purpose
and mutual helpfulness of a firm al
liance, make sure of victor- over our
common foe.
"You will recognize your own
sentiments and purposes in the words
of President Wilson to the American
congress when on the second ot last
April, he advised a declaration of war
against Germany. He said:
Germany ! Challenge Accepted.
'"We are accenting this'challenge
of hostile purpose because we know
that in such a government (the Ger
man government) following such
methods, we can never have a friend:
and that in the presence of its organ
ized oower. always lying in wait to
accomplish we know not what pur
pose, there can be no assured security
for the democratic governments ot
the world.
" 'We are now about to accept the
gage of battle with this natural foe
to liberty, and shall if necessary,
spend the whole force of the nation
to check and nullify its pretensions
and its power. We are glad, now that
u ii ili facta with no veil of false
pretense about them, to fight thus for
the ultimate peace ot ttte worm ana
for the liberation of its peoples, the
German peoples included; for the
rights of nations, great and small and
the privilege of men everywhere to
choose their way of life and of
Must Make World Safe.
" 'The world must be made safe for
democracy. Its peace must be
planted upon the tested foundations
of political liberty. We have no sel-
hsh ends to serve, we uesire no con
quest, no dominion. We seek no in
demnities for ourselves, no material
compensation, for the sacrifice! - we
shall freely make. We are but one
of the champions of the rights of
mankind. We shall be satisfied when
those rights have been made as secure
is the faith and thereedom of na
tions can make them.'
"And you will see the feeling
toward Russia with which America
has entered the great war in another
clause of the same address. President
Wilson further declared:
"'Does not every American feel
that assurance has been added to our
hope for the future peace of the
world by the wonderful and hearten
ing things that have been happening
within the last few weeks in Russia.
"'Russia waa known by those who
know her best to have been always
in fact democratic at heart in all the
vital habits of her thought, in all the
intimate relationships of her people
that spoke their natural instiiict, their
habitual attitude toward life.
"'The autocracy that crowned the
summit of her political structure,' long
as it stood am', terrible as was the
reality of its power, was not in fact
Russian in origin, character or pur
pose, and now it has been shaken off
and the great, generous Russian peo
ple have been added, in all their naive
majesty and might, to the forces that
are fighting for freedom in the world,
for justice and for peace. Here is a fit
partner for a League of Honor.'
"That partnership of honor in the
great struggle for human freedom the
oldest of the great democracies now
seeks in fraternal union with the
vounaest. Practical and specific meth
ods and the possibilities of our allies'
co-operation, the members ot the mis
sion would he glad to discuss with the
members of the government ot Kus
M. Terschenecko. responding to
Mr. Root's address, said:
The Russian people consider war
inevitable and will continue it. The
Russians have no imperialistic wishes.
We know that you have none.
"We shall fight together to secure
liberty, freedom and happiness for all
the world. I am happy to say that I
do not see any moral idea or factor
between America and Russia to Li-
vide us.
"We two peoples Russia fighting
tryanny and America standing as the
oldest democracy hand in hand will
show the way to happiness to n'
tions great and small."
M. Terschenecko rose from a sick
bed to attend the presentation. He
said that Russia's revolution was
based on the wonderful words uttered
by America in 1776. He read part of
the Declaration of Independence and
exclaimed: "Russia holds with the
United States that all men are created
free and equal.
JI. lerschenecko sketched the his-
by saying tha. the Russians, enslaved
tor centuries, threw on all the old
order just as the wind blows the au
tumn leaves from the forest. Russia
now faces two problems, said the
minister, the necessity of creating a
strong democratic force within its
boundaries and the fighting of an ex
ternal foe. Then he declared for war
and expressed unbounded confidence
in the power of Russia to meet the

Walthill Man Would Have
Buss- Americans Teach
New Republic of
Walthill, Neb., June 17. (Special.)
Carl lireatman, a Russian living at
Walthill, hs devised an ingenious
plan for the enlightenment of the
Russian people and their instruction
concerning principles of a republican
form of government.
Mr. Brcatman has written the fol
lowing letter to Secretary of State
Lansing concerning the idea:
"By way of introduction, I will state
that I am i Jew; that I was born in
Russia, served four years in the Rus
sian army and came to this country
at the age of 24 years. I am now 37
years old.
I am deeply interested in tne part
Russia is playing in this war and in
the situation that it now finds itself,
and now that I am a citizen of the
United States, I want to serve it, and
in doing so I feel that I am serving
II mankind.
"1 know Russia and its people and
I believe I know its needs at this time.
The common people do not compre
hend what is being done or what the
new government means to them. The
Russian officials wno may go among
them arc viewed with suspicion and
do not have the confidence of the
Would Send Russians Back.
'If the iovcrnment in Washington
would choose three to five hundred
common people who were born and
reared in Russia and who are natural
ized citizens, and arrange to have
them return to their home districts
and explain to these people their new
government and our own form of gov
ernment, ma to outline to uiem in
their own way the advantages we en

"1 am so certain that great work
could be accomplished along this line,
that even though I am a married man
with family, I would gladly go as one
of the party of delegates, because 1
feel that in doing so I could render
great service to the United States and
to Russia. A united Russia will ac
complish more in ending this war than
in sending Z.uuu.uuu men to r ranee,
"if I could see you and talk with
you personally I could convince you
of the necessity of sending the dele
gation to Russia at once. The states

respects to the Rapp-Schroeder

Slav Officials Drive From
Country Socialist Who
Received Teutonic
Petrograd (Via London), June 17
Fresh attempts on the part of the
Germans to conclude peace with Rus
sia have been exposed, with the result
that the expulsion from Russia lias
been ordered of a prominent socialist
internationalist, a citizen of Switzer
land, Robert Grimm.
Two days ago the provisional gov
ernment leceived from a reliable
source a copy of a dispatch addressed
by Hoffman, a member ot the Swiss
Federal Council, to Grimm. Apart
from the separate peace offer con
tained in the dispatch, Hoffman re
ported that Germany and its allies
were ready, to begin general and im
mediate peace negotiations if Russia's
allies ware willing.
The provisional government appar
ently was informed that this dispatch
had been nanded to Grimm by the
Swiss minister at Petrograd.
Socialists Investigate Charge.
The government requested the so-
cialist members of the cabinet, M.
Tseretelli and M. Skobeleff, to de
mand explanations from Grimm, who
was their colleague, inasmuch as,
though a foreigner, he was beginning
to plav a prominent role in Petrograd
as the mouthpiece of the international
ist pacihst propaganda.
An official statement issued today
declares that Grimm denied to the
cabinet members that the Swiss minis
ter had transmitted to him such a dis
