Bavarians Turned Against
Government by Loss of
War and Resistance of
King to Reforms.
Tarls, Nov. 27.The revolution in
Bavaria has not brought about much
change in Munich, according to a
special dispatch from that city to
the Fetit Parisien, and the state ma
.chinery continues to run almost nor
Everyone in Bavaria is discussing
the revolution but it is a calm dis
cussion of an unforeseen comnlica
tion which has to be settled in the
best way. The movement in Ba
varia, the correspondent declares, is
completely independent of the other
movements in Germany. His resist
ance to democratic and social re
forms lost King Ludwig all the pop
ularity he enjoyed when he was re
gent of Bavaria and before he be
came king. The conviction that the
war was lost completely, turned
the people against the government
and for some time before the revolt
the situation in Bavaria had been
An election to replace Deputy
Woolmar, who resigned from the
Reichstag, then came up. The ma
jority socialists brought forward
Herr Auer and the minority social
ists Kurt Eisner. The political cam
paign was the spark which set off
the mine. Added to this the ques
tion of demobilization became urg
ent and the government measures to
deal with it were ineffective.
Eisner, the Petit Parisien corres
pondent continues, feared that the
demobilized masses of Germans and
Austro-Hungarians in the neighbor
ing countries would bring about a
chaotic situation in Bavaria. He de
cided on quick action and organized
resistance against dangers likely to
favor the development of bolshe
vism. There are several versions of
the beginning of the decisive phase
of the crisis, says the correspondent,
but the most reliable seems to show
that it came from a carefully elab
orated plan prepared by Eisner.
Louis Gandorfer, a blind peasant
with great influence, undertook to
raise the peasantry against the king,
but to induce them to continue feed
ing the capital.
At present the majority socialists
and bourgeoisie parties are prepar
ing for the elections to the national
assembly, which will be held soon.
The result of the elections, the cor
respondent declares, will have a de
cisive influence, which will not be
confined to Bavaria.
Road-Building to Be
Vital Part of Plans in
1 Reconstruction Times
Washington, Nov. 27. Recon
struction plans in the opinion of
Secretary of. Agriculture Houston
should include resumption of high
way construction under the federal
aid road act, creation of a system
of personal credit unions for farm
ers, systematic supervision of land
settlement, provisions for safeguard

couragement of farm ownership,
continuation of government super
vision of stock yards and related in
dustries, and extension of the bene
fits of modern medicine and sanita

Aliens With Bank Rolls
Must Pay Up Before Going
Officials of the internal revenue
department Tuesday rounded up 35
Japanese aliens from the Jap colony
in South Omaha who were prepar
ing tosgo back to Japan and are
compelling them to file income tax
statements. The revenue officials
say also that a large number of Rus
sians, Slavs, Lithuanians, Greeks
and Austrians, who have been em
ployed as laborers in the packing
nouses, are preparing to return to
Russia and other European coun
tries. -
All of these people, who are aliens,
have no exemption in filing income
tax statements, but must rile for the
entire amount of their earnings.
Very few of them have done so, and
officials find that most of them have
anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000
saved up with which to start life in
the country from which they came.
Several of them at first refused to
file statements, and the Japanese
aliens have hired a lawyer to look
after their interests. The revenue
department intends to hold all aliens'
railroad tickets and passports until
statements covering the entire five
years' period have beeen filed.
Revenue officers say that this same
condition prevails in other large
cities where alien laborers who have
been receiving high wages during
the war are now going back,, to
their native lands.
Communications at Armistice
Conference Never Tem
pered by Friendly Word,
Says Hun Delegate.
Amsterdam, Nov. 27. The armis
tice conferences httween the German
delegates and Marsha! Foch and his
associates early this month were
carried out in the most business-like
manner possible and apparently
without notable incidents, accord
ing to a long account of the confer
ence given the Berlin Vossische Zei
tung by a member of the German
After the French met the Ger
man commissioners they were
driven for 10 hours in automobiles
to an appointed rendezvous. "It
seemed' to me," says the narrator,
"that the drive was intentionally
prolonged in order to carry us
through the devastated provinces
and prepare us for the hardest con
ditions which hatred and revenge
might demand. One of the French
men pointed to a heap of ruins, say
ing, "Behold St. Quentin."
"We entered a train with blinds
drawn in the evening and awoke in
the morning in the midst of the
forest of Compeigne, surrounded by
Enmity Shown.
"There were two trains, one oc
cupied by Marshal Foch and his
staff and the other by the Germans.
In these we lived, worked and ne
gotiated for three days. We had
everything in abundance. There
was nothing to find fault with. The
great enmity and hatred that ap
parently prevailed against us were
shown, however, in the negotiations
and in tHe terms imposed."
The narrator remarks that the
French officers and Vice Admiral
Wemyss, British representative,
maintained a cold attitude, "never
tempered by a friendly word."
"Marshal Foch, whom we only
saw twice, at the beginning and at
the end of the conference, is a stern,
plain man. He did not speak a sin
gle word to us in the tone which
fromerly distinguished the-chival
rous French nation.
Foch Not Rough.
."It is not-true that Fpch told us
there could not be any question of
negotiations, only the imposition of
conditions, and whatever coldness
he displayed was never ill-mannered
or rough.
Really there was nothing to ne
gotiate. We pointed out the tech
nical impossibility of some condi
tions. . . . Finally we were
obliged to sign."
During the discussion the French
handed the Germans the Paris
newspapers announcing the abdica
tion of Emperor William.
"We observed no smile of tri
umph on their faces," adds the writ
er, "but could discern their hatred."

Some of Hardest Fighting is
Met on Northern Front;
Reds Try Oratory on
Archangel, Nov. 27. (By Asso
ciated Press.) In log huts and
wind shelters made of birch
boughs, American troops are hold
ing the line against 'the bolsheviki
on the middle sector of the north
ern front in the region of Kadish.
After 10 weeks of fighting in swamps
and thick undergrowth, the Amer
icans now are snowed in and have
bivouacked along an ice filled
stream on the outside of which are
the camp fires of the enemy.
Under British command and with
British forces aiding them, the
American infantrymen on this sec-!
tor probably have had more fighting
and more hardships than other
American units in Russia. The force
has been operating between he
Dvina river and the Vologda rail
road. The roads have been in bad
condition and the only means of
transporting supplies to a greater
part of the front has been wheelbarrow-shaped
carts drawn by Rus
sian ponies.
"Oratorical Artillery."
The bolsheviki at times try the
force of their "oratorical artillery"
on the Americans. On two nights
during the last week English speak
ing bolsheviki appeared in No
Man's land, made speeches urging
the Americans not to fight. Great
red banners printed in English also
are strung along the enemy bank
of the river.
American troops also are operat
ing on the Mehrenga river, 50 miles
south of Seletskoe and in a more
thickly populated Country.- The vil
lage? there are strongly anti-bol-sheviki
and Russian detachments are
aiding the allies. On Wednesday a
Russian detachment surprised and
defeated an enemy force, killing
nearly 100.
Arbitrator Fixes Date
For Hearing on Packing
House Workers' Demand
Chicago, Nov. 27. The demand
of rrearly 75,000 employes at the Chi
cago Union Stock Yards packing
planfs for a 25 cents an hour wage
increase was set for hearing Decem
ber 4 by Judge Samuel Alschuler, ar
bitrator under the "war working
agreement" entered into last Decem
ber by the packers and employes.
The new demand, which means an
increase ranging from 10 to 50 per
cent a day varying according - to
class of employment, not only af
fects the employes in Chicago but
also those in plants operated by the
"Big Five" packers in other cities.
"The principle grounds fc the re
quest for a general increase in wages
is the increase in the cost of liv
ing since the war working agree
ment under which the employes were
given a $1.45 a day advance was en
tered into," said Francis J. Heney,
counsel representing the 15 em
ployes' unions operating in the pack
ing plants and in the , stock yards
The question of women workers
receiving the same pay as men for
the same work will also come up at
the hearing.
Uncle Robert Pays Costs
and Takes Nephew Home
"He's mah half brother's son," ex
plained Robert Jones, negro, "so I
jes got to take care of him."
Earl Jones, negro, just brought
from Chicago on a petit larceny
charge, was the unfortunate nephew.
It is alleged that he stole $75 from
an Omaha man.
"I've squandered over a $1,000 get
ing that boy out of scrapes," contin
ned Uncle Robert, wrathfully. "Jest
look at him; isn't he a fine speci
men?" .
Earl was now crying profusely.
Then uncle relented and paid the
costs of bringing Earl back to
Omaha. .
"It's moneywasted," he muttered,
as he escorted his nephew home
ward, after charges had been dismissed.
Situation Fraught With Peril
Described in Report Pre
pared by Agent of Slo
vene Government.
Paris, Nov. 27. A detailed account
of conditions in southeastern Eu
rope, where the presence of 1,000,000
Austrian army deserters who have
established themselves in fortified
camps in various districts, as well as
of hordes of released prisoners, has
created a dangerous situation, is giv
en in the report recently prepared
for Col. E. M. House by William J
Rose, an asrent of the Slovene gov
ernment, now in Laibach, the new
capital of Slovakia. He suggests va
rious measures to avert bolshevism
which, he affirms, is the danger
threatened by the condition he de
"When I say that the enemy is
bolshevism, I use the term loosely
to describe what is the perfection of
anarchy and the negation of law
and order," says the report. "Mili
tarism is as dead as a gravestone.
There is no shadow of danger that
it will rise again, but a fearful men
ace has come in its place that has be
come a matter of life and death.
"Three special factors have arisen
in the last six months, two of them
in the last month, which have
brought on a condition of things
comparable only with the terror of
the French revolution.
Deserters Organize.
"First, the forming of deserters
from the Austrian armies into what
seems, to be known as German
guards. This began in the spring,
and had reached by September such
dimensions that their numbers were
reckoned at a round 1,000,000. They
wear Austrian uniforms. They
maintain a sort of discipline among
themselves, and by their attitude to
the existing government found
enough sympathy among the peas
antry to be able to get food. Every
kind of pillage of military supplies
helped them maintain their position.
"The people as a whole suffered
little and even welcomed them into
their cottages. Those men were
simply waiting for the general dis
ruption which has aldready came.
"Second, the disaster to the Aus
trian armies on the Italian front set
upward of 1,500,000 disgusted,
demoralized and debauched as well
as hungry, troops free from the dis
cipline of four and a half years.
These men carried their rifles, but
on being loaded into the cattle trains
waiting for them at either Kiagen
furt or Laibach they have to leave
their arms behind and, ipso facto,
threw off restraint. On the way
from, Vienna to Laibach we saw per
haps 20 such trains, each one looking
like a crawling snake covered with
ants, the soldiers lying on the tops
of cars crowding the platforms,
clinging to the windows and even
riding on the axles themselves, al!
beset with one idea to get' home
They have to pass through one, two,
three or four belts of hostile terri
tory, according to whether they are
Germans, Czechs, Poles or Ruthen
ians. Long before they reach home
they take to plundering.
Poland Overwhelmed.
'"Thirdly, when the central em
pires concluded with Russia the
treaty of Brest-Litovsk they at once
began to get prisoners home from
all parts of Russia with which they
had railroad communications. But
not a single train of Russian pris
oners was allowed to return from
Austria or Germany. At least 2,
000,000 Russians were forced to re
main under hard conditions with
little food and no kind of Christian
" As soon as the crash cau.e Aus
tria began to let loose untold thou
sands upon her easter.i boundaries.
Where they were not let loose they
broke out themselves and began to
march to the nearest main line sta
tions for Russia. Germany soon
followed her example, which means
that for the third time in this war
unhappy Poland is overwhelmed
an army of invasion.''
Mr. Rose suggests, among other
things, that the American govern
ment establish consulate or missions
in numerous centers and also advis
ory or relief committees, as well as
to undertake a general campaign
of enlightenment to be carried on
indefinitely by the press and on
the platform to prepare the peoples
for the drastic changes the war has
brought about.

Post May Be Declined on the
Ground That Wealth Might
Prove Embarrassing
to Official.
Washington, Nov. 27. Bernard
M. Baruch, chairman -of the war in
dustries board, it was understood
today, has been offered the post of
secretary of the treasury to succeed
Secretary McAdoo.
Whether he will be nominated is
an open question. Without actually
declining to serve, it is said, Mr.
Baruch has urged upon the presi
dent strongly his belief that he
should not enter the cabinet, on the
ground that his wealth, largely in
government and other securities,
would be seriously embarrassing.
The ill health of Carter Glass,
chairman of the' house banking and
currency committee, who also has
been mentioned for the office, is
said to have been influential in de
termining the president to ask Mr.
Baruch to put aside his known ob
jections. For director general of railroads

Interesting Display of
Old Guns Shown in
Jones-Hanson Window
The Jones-Hansen-Cadillac com
pany, Twenty-sixth and Farnam
streets, has arranged in a corner
of its showroom a very interesting
exhibit of firearms. Some of these
models date back 300 years and the
display includes almost every type
of pistol manufactured. The collec
tion is the property of A. T. Hill
of Hastings, Neb., who has made
this collection a lifetime hobby.
A Chinese matcjilock rifle said to
be over 300 years old is probably the
oldest of thte collection. This
unique design was picked up some
where on the Chinese wall.
'Another interesting object is a
German helmet of the type used by
the kaiser's bodyguard. It is said
that this helmet belongs to an Omaj
ha man, but that he ceased to be
proud of this possession some time
ago. '
Another interesting type of fire
arms is a "double-barreled muzzle
shot." The barrel of this weapon is
as thin as u sheet of paper. Among
the other exhibits are a .22 caliber
nickel duster; also a palm pistol
with a wheel type shooting cylin
der. The cylinder of this palm
pistol is of a design smilar to the
Lewis machine gun. There are
numerous styles of powder horns,
such as our forefathers used as far
back as revolutionary war times.
To add a touch of modernism to
this display the Townsend Gun
company has furnished a modern
Remington rifle and a perfectly
good grenade of the type used in
