Senator Jones Declares Presi
dent to Blame for Not Seek
ing Counsel of Congress
uu ui ecu nuuicina.
,ihineton. March 27. Failure of
government agencies to co-operate in
the prosecution 6f,the war was laid
to President Wilson 'by Senator
Jones of Washington, in a speech in
the senate today, in which he charged
that the president had shown no dis
position to seek the advice of con
gress On th great problems confront
ing the nation.
"The presrdent ought to eo-ordi-natt
himself and the sooner he does
it, J the? sooner will governmental
agencies be most effective," said San
atofr Jones.
"Members of congress are ready
and anxious to co-operate fully with
thei executive, and the president
should not only welcome but seek
their counsel and advice upon the
great problems which confront him,
bub he does not do it. I do not say
this in any captious spirit It is the
statement of a fact, a most lament
able fact known to all here and ret
gretted by all. , . .
Would. Create Unity -'-'
Senator ones asserted that if-the
pref ident an4 congress co-operated as
they should "a feeling of patriotic
unit throughout the country, that I
i fear is now lacking but which ought
to txist, would be created."
In directing his attention 'to profi
teering; Senator Jones declared that
n was everywnere, ana tne "nation a
needs is ita common prey."
, i "The fight for gain is so fierce that
it seems universal, he continued.
'It is confined to no class or condi-
. tiois. Why is that? j It is not be
cai&c we are not patriotic. We have
noicome to realize what we must do
to fvin this war. The people do not
knr$w the real facts. Th will no
ccc mcir race tor Bn ana prom mi
their do know the urgent need for sac
rifice and self-denial"
Public Is Misled. v

senator charged they are being, given
misleading- v -statements. "Nothing
mujt be said that will 'aid and com
fort the enemy has met every sug

forf. The time ha CQme to stop that
cryl It'is the, refuge of the coward
ancf the craven or the shield of the
enemy's friend Kb greater aid'caii be
givin Germany in this dark hour than
to jail our people into a false se
curity." ' :J '
Senator Jones also took President
Vi$on to task for permitting the con
tinued use of grain, and foodstuff in
thekflanufactnre of wine and beer, and
thefuse of transportation facilities for
thehipment for beer and wines to the
detriment ot the" movement of" food-
inri mnnro Tfixm' -
London, March 27. There have
been two critical moments thus far
in the battle raging in France, Major
General Frederick B. Maurice, chief
director of military operations at the
war office, said in an interview today,
with the Associated Press.
"The first was on Saturday, when
the enemy got across the Tortille
river and nearly reached the line of
the Sotnme," General Maurice de
clared. "The second was on Monday,
when he took Courcelette and a sim
ilar danger of a breach was present.
"For the time being, the enemy is
definitely checked north of the Som
me. The fighting in this district has
been very sever; and . the enemy
troops are exhausted.
"North of Albert an attack may be
expected momentarily, as German re
serves have been seen massing.
"Savior of Verdun" at Helm
. Of War, Frenchmen's Boast
Paris, March 27. The following
quotation from the Petit Parisien will
help to explain the calmness and con
fidence of the.Frtnch:
"Even though 'the situation is seri
ous, it rannot be considered alarming.
Let us await the end with confidence.
The Germans boast of Hindenburg.
Wc have at the helm the 'Savior of
(General Petain, the French commander-in-chief,
was in command of
the army at Verdun at the time of the
German offensive there.)
li the Germans believed that by in
augurating their bombardment of
Paris at the moment of their offensive
they would-bring panic or add to the
anxiety of the people, they have shown
themselves poor psychologists once
more. 'The bombardment has acted
rather as a counter-irritant to the
nerves of Parisians, serving to divert
attention from the grave events on the
front so close to the capital.

The shell Is provided with a (use
protected by a threaded stopper and

These, facts are accepted as an ex

which on occasion, hate followed in
quick succession and which , led to
belief that two guna were firing.

No American Prisoners Taken;
Berlin Papers Mention
United States Par
ticipation. Amsterdam, March 27. American
troops have taken part in couner at
tacks against the German front iuar
La Ftre, writes the military corre
spondent of the Berlin paper, Vor
waerts, who says the attacks wjjie le
pulsed. Tilt correspondent adds:
"After the first surprise, the enemy
pressure along the entire front natur
ally is growing stronger. Threatening
catastrophe compels the enemy to
reckless action. South of the "hieak
through' front he, therefore, is col
lecting strong reserves intended for a
flank movement on our attacking
"Attacks of combined allied forces
yesterday against the pivot of the
German attacking front'near La Fere
were particularly heavy. These counter-attacks
did not find us unprepared.
It testifies to the superior foresight of
the German command that these at
tacks in which Arnerican troops cer
tainly participated only symbolically,
were not only beaten off but were
thrown back on the Oise canal by an
energetic blow."
No United States Prisoners.
The part reported to have been
played by American troops in the at
tempted relief of the British flank
near La Fere is referred to briefly by
most of the German war correspon
dents, but so faf no mention has been
made of the presence of Americans
among the prisoners.
Wilhelm Hoeler of the Berlin Tage

opportunity to find out what war
really means. The Deutsche Tages
Zeitung says the fact that the Amer-
