Mi3s:vc, Publication of Which
Is likened to Bomb, Said to
Have Been Written by
(From a Staff C'orrtapondviu.)
Washington, April 14. The Aus
trian semi-official explanation of the
peace letter of Emperor Charles, ac
cording to a dispatch today from
France, is that it was written by the
Duchess of Tarma, mother of the Em
press Zita, to her con, Count Sixtus
De Bourbon, and that the emperor
must have added certain lines over his
signature. The Vienna view is that
this explains how Premier Clemen-
ceau was able to say that the letter
was signed by the emperor.
The dispatch from France con
cludes: "The following information was
telegraphed Friday evening from
Berne, which gives us an idea of the
effect which may be produced by the
revelations of Mr. Clemenceau. It
has been possible this morning to note
the impression caused by this publi
cation among the journalists of the
central powers living at Berne. Dur
ing an extremely animated conversa
tion this morning in which several J

vjcrnian ami .Austrian journalists iook
part, one of them exclaimed wiih the
approval of his interlocutors 'It is a
veritable bomb that has just exploded.
He will have to abdicate.'
"Before the publication of the text
of the letter the Austro-German press,
conforming it!i the insane lies of
the Emperor Charles I and his minis
ter, had the audacity to declare that
it was a pure invention. The confu
sion produced in the camps of the

While a hurried call was sent to the
Omaha police, to neighboring physi

automobilists who were passing at the
time of the accident, helped in carry
ing tne injured to places ot retuge.
All the injured were taken to the home
of Dr. A. B. Adams, where they were
given first aid. Doctors Adams and
Foltz worked heroically in caring for
the maimed. The rooms of the house
filled with injured displayed a pitiable
sight of sorrow and suffering.
Detective Van Deusen happened
upon the scene at the instant of the
accident and assisted in taking some
of the injured to Dr. Adams' home.
Several of the injured were found
in the automobile.
Family In Hospital.
At the Nicholas Senn hospital, the
Rabiolo family, which had already
suffered three deaths, huddled to
gether in the examing room, waiting
for the hospital physician and nurses
to get ready for operations.
Sam Rabiolo, the father of the fam
ily, while badly hurt himself, rushed
iom one member of the little flock
to the other administering loving
wbrds of encouragement. His wife,
perhaps fatally injured, sat in a chair,
while little five year old Charles lay
on a table, unconscious.
Francis Costentino, seven years old,
was at the Nicholas Senn hospital
with the injured. Whether she was in
the automobile when the s,mash came
is in doubt. None of the nurses knew
whence she came, although she was
a friend of the Rabiolo family. She
was not injured, and spent her be
wildrered moments running from one
of the injured to the other, but brave
ly holding back tears.
Little Charles Rabiolo is badly in
jured, while internal injuries may de
velop. Pathetic Scenes.
Relatives and friends of the injured
ew ernotified from the hospital by Dr.
Nigro, who also is an Italian. When
they arrived at the hospital, pathetic
scenes ensued. Nurses and doctors
found much difficulty in keeping them
out of the wards.
Practically all the nurses of the
hospital were ready and waiting for
the ambulances as they arrived at the
nospiiai.- , . . j
As fast as the ooeratint room could
be cleared, the injured were rushed
upstairs for fina.1 dressings and ex

Sam Rabiolo, who conducts a gro

Suggestion for Appropriation
of $50,000,000 for Experi
ments; No Opposition.
(By AaaorUted Free.)
Washington, April 14. President
Wilson has approved the shipping
board's suggestion for an appropria
tion of $50,000,000 to experiment with
concrete ships. Chairman Hurley will
confer Monday with Chairman Shir
ley of the house appropriation com
mittee who has promised to introduce
the appropriation bill immediately and
press its passage. No opposition to
the measure is expected in either
house. It is planned to make $15,000,
000 availabls at once.
The president is said to be keenly
interested ir. the new type of con
struction. He has talked several
times with Mr. Hurley, Senator Mc
Cumber, who is urging the appropria
tion in the aenate, and other officials
who believe concrete ships will prove
an important link in the "bridge
across the Atlantic."
Chairman Hurley frankly has said
concrete construction is an experi
ment, but t:i2t the shipping board
does not feel warranted to pass over
any possibility of turning out ships
quickly bectuse the experiment may
not prove a success.

Firing Squad Just Due
For Acts of Disloyalty
Sioux Falls, S. D., April 14. The

penalty for acts of disloyalty by Fed

States district court yesterday, in
sentencing Henry Homan, a Spanish
American war veteran, who pleaded
guilty to violating the espionage act.
Homan, who was indicted for dis
loyal utterances in connection with

BETTER USE OF
Nebraska Food Administrator
Points Out the Necessity of
Consumption of Home
"Use home supplies in season. That
is the first'law of conservation," says
Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food ad
ministrator for Nebraska.
"Compliance with this law will
greatly assist the conservation plans,
and will permit release of flour and
suar for export to the allies.
"Increased consumption of eggs,
milk and potatoes, three of the-great
products of Nebraska will give added
impetus" to the appeal to conserve
flour and sugar, which the allies and
our boys in the trenches so badly
need. Moreover, the use of these
products will in no wise interfere with
the health and nourishment of our
"Milk is in season. Milk is both
meat and drink. It furnishes easy
energy to the system. It has a hun
dred uses. It may be served as a
beverage, as a soup;, it may be made
the foundation of the main dish at
the m'eal, or it may be made into a
delightful dessert. It adds strength
to the body; it furnishes motive
power. It is inexpensive in compari
son with other foods, more often used.
Eggs Are Nutritious.
"Likewise eggs are a highly nutri
tive food. Just now they are plenti
ful, and comparatively cheap. Substi
tution of eggs in the daily diet will
be. of inestimable value to the in
dividual and will permit the use of
much less wheat.
"Then comes potatoes, one of Ne
braska's greatest crops and of which
there is a plentiful supply. Potatoes
may be used to a large degree in the
place of wheat flour and may entirely
replace wheat bread. Potatoes are
cheap, when their food value is taken
"With plentiful use of these pro
ducts, our people will be enabled to
get along with much less wheat:
"You cannot use too much of these
foodstuffs. You are doing a patriotic
service in that you are making pos
sible greater exports of wheat and
sugar; and you are relieving trans
portation difficulties which will per
mit the prompt shipments of the
necessary exportable foods.
On Scientific Principles.
"Very few people know of the de
tailed or scientific investigations that
are being made by the food adminis
tration and Mr. Hoover. The public
hear mostly of maximum prices and
"It will surprise householders to
know that last month 100,000 pounds
of flour and foods were removed from
sailing ships in New York harbor.
This amount the government con
sidered beyond the necessary require
nents of these ships. Consumption
on ships has been eight to nine
pounds per man per day. The food
administration has cut this to six. In
some instance consumption has been
reduced to four and one-half pounds
Data on High Prices.
"The food administration is col
lecting some remarkable data, show
ing the effect of high prices and the
restrictions upon consumption of va
rious war necessities. These statistics
indicate that the rising prices, which
have been noted for the last 18
months, now show a declining
tendency in many quarters, especially
in wheat substitutes, where there are
enlarged facilities for manufacturing
"Some criticism has been directed
at the food administration for inter
fering with the laws of supply and
demand in regard to sugar.
"At Nassua, in the Bahama islands,
off the coast of Florida, and where
there is no interference, or no food
administration, and in Cuba, under
similar conditions, the price of sugar
is 25 cents per pound.
"That is the answer to Mr.
Hoovers interference and it is a big
answer to the consumer."

(By Aaaotlated Praa.)
New York, April 14. An organiza
tion of belligerent and neutral nations
which would make Germany a poli
tical and commercial outcast among
the people's of the world unless she
agreed to certain elements of inter
national government and "those prin
ciples which -are recognized as true
by the United States. Great Britain,
France, Italy and Japan," was ad
vocated by United States. Senator
Robert L. Owen of Oklahoma in ad
dressing a luncheon of the National
Security league here today.
Having declared for these principles
of international government, including
disarmament at the end of the war
and other policies set forth by Presi
dent Wilson, Senator Owen said this
compact of nations should say to these
captains of German industry "You
sought to rob us we do not desire
to rob you, but we say,, to you that
unless you underwrite these great
principles of international government
unless youusc your influence to
bring this war to an end we will after
a limited number of months impose
upon you the following penalties."
The speaker then enumerated the
exclusion from all ports of the" con
federated nations of all German
shipping; the banning of importation
of German made goods and of the
exporting "directly or indirectly," of
any manufactures or other articles or
commerce into Germany; the seizure
of German-owned property in the
nations of the confederacy and its
sale to indemnify "any of our nation
als who have property in Germany,"
the severance of all communication
with Germany and a declaration that
"we will isolate you as far as we
have the pov;er for a limited time,
until you shall have learned the les
sons that you cannot, by organizing
military force rob the other people
'of the world of their property or of
United States Senator Warren G.
Harding, of Ohio, another speaker,
emphasized the importance of ship
ping. "If we are going to apply the
'taboo Teutonic' to which Senator
Owen so well alluded" he said, "then
we must join, the nations of civiliza
tion in commanding the seas, both
armed and unarmed."
