Commoner in Lincoln Address
Pays More Attention to Roast
of Democratic Senate in
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln,. Jlarch 20. (Special.)
There' is considerable comment in
Lincoln today, following the address
. of V. J. Bryan'at the atiditorium last
night, because the commoner did not
once mention the name of the presi
dent of the' United States in his
speech. The nearest he came to it
was when he mentioned that a demo
cratic house and a democratic senate
had passed the national prohibition
act and that a democratic president
had signed it.
It is noticeable that th local demo
cratic paper leads in the comment and
in mentioning the matter calls atten
tion to a similar meeting two years
ago. where Mr. Bryan criticized the
president for adopting a policy of pre
paredness and for not doing more
than 'he had done to bring about
peace in Europe.
It is also noticeable that the same
paper in its issue today calls attention
to that part of his speech covering the
calling of the special session of the
lcgis!aure and called the words used
by Mr. Bryan as a "studied affront id
" When Governor Neville was asked
todav if he had anything to say re
garding Mr. Bryan's reference to the
matter, he said there was nothing to
Mr. Bryan appeared so happy over
the fact that the democratic party was
for oice on the side of prohibition
that he gave alt the credit for prohi
bition legislation to the democrats and
gave republicans no thanks for their
part in the enactment of the laws
along thatJine passed by congress.
.That he was very much worried that
the conversion of is party was not
a permanent thing was evidenced
by the way he lambasted the Ne
braska senate and threatened the
members with being placed in the
kaiser class if they didn't come across
at the coming special session with
a hip-hurrah for a ratification of the
national prohibition act of congress

the imperial chancellor, declared in,
concluding his speech in the Reich
stag today on the peace treaty, with
Russia. He added?
"There is not the slighest inclina
tion yet perceptible among the en
tente states to terminate this terrible
war. We, however, shall not lose
faith. We are prepared and' every
thing is ready. Further heavy sacri
fices may come, but I am confident
in dur just cause, our incomparable
army, its heroic leaders and the steads
fast nation. Responsibility for fur
ther bloodshed will fall on the heads
of those desiring its continuance."
Worked for Revolution.
Baron von Dem Bussche-Hadden-hausen,
under-secretary for foreign
affairs, explained that Germany; had
adopted a -sharper and firmer method
in the second phase of the Russian
negotiations, because it realized that
Trotzky, the bolshevik foreign minis
ter, desired not peace, but to instigate
Germany to rebellion and .counted on
a revolution in Germany and Austro
Hungary to help him veil thelact of
"Our negotiators," the under-secret
tary said, "gained the impression that
the Russians expected far more se
vere terms' after they had forced us
to a fresh appeal to arms and their
protest that they were forced to ac
cept our terms without sufficient time
for negotiations was a mere attempt
to save their own faces. Everything
had been discussed fully in December
and the only new demand after the
ultimatum was regarding Kars, Ar
dahan and Batoum." , The peace
treaty provides that these districts in
the Caucasus shall be ceded to
