RUSS IRON IS
Believe Teutons Would Even

Clinch Valuable Ore in
(By AMoclatrd PreM.)
Va shington, March 16. Inferences
that Germany may have made a new
peace offer to the allies, proposing
terms at the expense of Russia, coin
cide with an undercurrent of discus
sion which has been running in diplo
matic circles here for some time, but
which never has shown any evidence
of tangible development.
The state.nent of Lord Robert Ce
cil in Lond-m yesterday that no such
proposals would be considered, cou
pled with Marshal Hindenburg's an
nouncement that the German offen
sive would go on in view of the en
tente's unresponsive attitude towards
Germany's peace intentions, served to
strengthen the view of neutral diplo
mats who for some time have be
lieved that some sort of underground
feelers have been going out.
American officials and allied diplo
mats, while agreeing entirely with
Lord Cecil's statement that no such
terms can be considered,' give no evi
dence of how much may be known
here of what Hindenburg refers to as
Germany's peace intentions.
Would Surrender Alsace.
Some of the neutral diplomats,
however, have for some time firmly
believed that Germany would be will
ing even to give up Alsace-Lorraine if
it were permitted to retain its hold
on the Baltic provinces and the min
eral belts in the other nearby sections
The general current of opinion in
diplomatic circles for some time has
turned toward the possibility of Ger
many attempting to give way in the
west and making up its losses in the
cast. The extent to which the ques-

Germany must count as accom

ter into Germany's peace plans is in
dicated in latest advices received here
showing discussion of the subject in
Need Iron Ore.
These show that Germany knows
production of ore within its own bor
ders is limited by experts to 50 years;
that Sweden contemplates an iron in
dustry of its own which will require
its own ore, and that the supply in
Spain, upon which Germany also has
drawn, is approaching exhaustion.
Consequently German officials con
tend that its supply of ore must logic-
any come lrorn the fields of Longwy
and Briey, assuring ore for a century.
Inasmuch as the allies are pledged by
repeated declaration to the restoration
of France, which would close these
fields to Germany, diplomats see in
proposed permanent acquisition of
milieral belts in the Russian pro
vinces Germany's last hope of remain
ing a military power.

ANTIS WOULD BE
A petition in intervention was filed
Saturday morning in the district court
of Lancaster county by 87 members
of the Nebraska Association Opposed
to Woman's Suffrage, asking to be
made codefendants with Secretary of
State Pool in defending their referen
dum petitions filed against the suf
The state legislature in 1917 passed
an act granting suffrage to women.
In the fall of 1914 a proposition to
extend the elective franchise to wo
men was rejected when submitted to
state-wide vote. In submitting their
referendum petitions to the secretary
of state some months ago the associa
tion opposed to woman's suffrage
sought to have the suffrage act of the
legislature submitted to a vote for
ratification or rejection under the init
iative and referendum law.
The Nebraska Woman's Suffrage
association came to the front with
an action to restrain the secretary of
state from submitting the suffrage
question to a referendum.
The petitions in intervention just
filed in Lancaster county was pre
sented by Attorneys John Lee Web
ster, Jacob Fawcett, L. F. Crofoot
and Byron G. Burbank for the Ne
braska Association Opposed to Wo
Among the petitioners in this latest
action are the following who are op
posed to woman's suffrage: John C.
Cowin, Joseph H. Millard. L. D. Rich
ards, Robert C. Howe, C. H. Pickens,
C. M. Wilhelm, C. C. George, Luther
Drake, Edward P. Peck, George H.
Prinz, M. C. Peters, Duncan M. Vin
sonhaler. T. J. Nolan, Frank B. John
son, W. A. Smith, C. Will Hamilton,
Walter T. Page, C. W. Hull, Michael
P. Murphy and Harry V. Burkley.
Excerpts from this petition read:
"That your petitioners represent a
majority of the people of the state of
Nebraska, who are opposed to the
granting of suffrage to women, be
lieving that woman suffrage is out of
harmony with the domestic relations
of the people and is not conducive to
the welfare of the state, and is also in f
opposition to what was and is the will
of the majority of the people.
"That the defendant, the secretary
of state, has no interest in the im
portant questions involved, aside from
the mere performance of his official
duty as secretary of state, and is not
prepared to make a substantial de
fense in this suit; that he does not
have the necessary information to
make a proper defense, and that in his
official capacity he has no money at
his disposal to incur the expenses
necessary to make a proper and sub
stantial defense; and that your peti
tioners, by their attorneys, have made
application to the secretary of state
fnr leave to make defense herein in his
name, but which request the secretary,
of state has refused; and your peti
tioners believe, and so aver, that if
they be not permitted to make defense
herein as defendants in this, suit, the
same will not be properly defended,
and that the constitutional and legal
right of all of the electors of the state
of Nebraska to express their approval
or rejection of said legislative woman
suffrage act will be defeated."
