(Continued from Page One.) this time can claim to be a real demo crat or a real lover of free institu tions. He is false both to democracy and freedom." . Germany has well matured plans for the conquest and oppression of the United States, he said. This was evidenced, he said, by the conversa tion of some recently captured Ger man officers who talked to their Eng lish captors freely without knowing that an American officer was present Huge Indemnity from U, S. "These Germans announced that Germany was going td win and that they were going to smash the United States and bleed it white with an en ormous indemnity and make it pay the whole expense of the war," he said. "They had no thought of peace and no man in his senses doubts that this would be the policy adopted as a matter of course by Germany. "If at this moment, while we are still ; helpless, France and England were defeated, thi German fleet would be at our doors in a fortnight and an army of conquest would have land- ed here within a month. Some years ago I saw openly published in Ger many a pamphlet written by mem ber of the. German general staff con taining a well worked-out plan for the conquest of the United States which the German staff regarded as easy, and for the levying of enormous con tributions at our expense." Saying that the preparedness meas ures we are taking now should have been carried out three years ago, the colonel declared that, "if Germany couuld land a single small army of 50,000 men in this country we would be wholly unable to match it for we have neither artillery nor airplanes that could be put against them. If at this moment our allies suddenly made peace, we would be a helpless prey to Germany or any other first-class Eu ropean or Asiatic military power." Three Drown in Barge .

' : y, Persistent Advertising Is the Road to Success. ; , REBELLION CALLED PLOT 0F1ERENSKY Petrograd Stirred by Revela tions that Premier Sent For Korniloff's Troops and Gen v eral Sent Too Many. . (By Associated Pre.) Petrograd, Sept 24. The Korniloff mystery, arising out of the recent re volt, has developed dimensions which threaten existence of the cabinet, par ticularly the position of Premier Kerensky. The newspapers repre senting the left and right parties de mand an explanation from the gov ernment, while the Bolshevik! organs opensly accuse the premier, in the words of the Nabotchi Poot, of being in a conspiracy with Korniloff "to crush the Petrograd proletariat and the Workmen's and Soldiers' dele gates with the help of cavalry corps sent against Petrograd." The newspaper asks why, if the pub lished documents are forged, no de nial has been issued. The Bolsheviki group in the bureau of the Central Workmen's and Sol diers' delegates has carried by an overwhelming majority a resolution demanding an explanation. Rebellion Part of Scheme. Petrograd newspapers publish col umns of revelations and interviews with the chief actors in the revolt, and while much is inexplicable, it is agreed that negotiations between Pre mier Kerensky and General Korniloff for the establishment of a strong gov ernment at Petrograd preceded the rebellion. The march of General Korniloff's troops on the capital is said to have "been part of a scheme. The Russkia Volya says the revela tions have made an overwhelming im pression on the members of the gov ernment who were hot initiated into the plan and that these ministers are awaiting Premier Kerensky's explana tion. ' Korniloff Breaks Agreement General Savinkoff, ex-director of the war department and later commander of the Petrograd troops sent against General Korniloff, declares that he was dispatched to General Korniloff by Premier Kerensky, who had re solved to proclaim martial law, with a mission to ask the Russian commander-in-chief to send to Petrograd a cavalry corps and "savage" division under command of a general other than General Krymoff, who was in political disrepute. General Korniloff broke the agreement by sending both Krymoff and the "savage" division to ward the capital. Praise For Alexieff. Premier Kerensky has issued an order of the day praising the services of General Alexieff in suppressing the Korniloff revolt without blood shed and for re-establishing order and normal activity-in the headquarters staff. The premier accepts General Alexieffs resignation, but places the general at the disposal of the govern ment so as not to lose the aid of his experience in the conduct of military affairs. : - ' Receives Fractured Skull When Struck by Train Henry Gitsen, employed at the junk yard of A.

Wreck Mountain to Secure Rich Copper Deposits Churn drills and blasting crews have started their work of making a hole in the ground out of the Sac ramento mountain, which frowns down upon the Bisbee copper camo from, its eminence in the Bisbee moun tains. The wrecking of a mountain ta obtain copper is one of the unique mining engineering projects of this district. Churn drills have drilled the mountain full of holes and these are being filled with high explosives and exploded to loosen the rock for the sriant steam shovels to scooo up and load into cars. Thousands of tons of overburden will be removed before the mineral deposit is encountered. The copper ore will then be removed to the , crusher plant to be erected near the mountain and crushed ore concentrated and then smelted to ren der the copper contained in the old, red mountains. When the project is completed the place where the Sacra mento mountain now stands will be a hole in the ground,, engineers say.
