Vienna, Dec. 1. The term "votes
for women" is beginning to take on
a sinister meaning here when con
sidered in connection with the fact
that Emperor Charles has not for-
' mally abdicated. The socialist news
papers claim that the woman voters
are being influenced by the clergy
. nd they also are making fierce at
tacks on Charles, openly charging
that he has. agents in Switzerland

working with- the. Christian socialist

Members Criticise President
for Decision to Go to
France; Some May
Question Him. v
Washington, Dec. 1. Congress
expects to hear from President Wil
son tomorrow something of his
plans for the peace conference.
On the eve of his departure for
France the president will go to the
capitol shortly before 1 o'clock to
deliver his annual address at the
opening of the thir'd and final ses
sion of the Sixty-fifth congress.
Few utterances of the chief execu
tive have been awaited with keener
interest, and congressional officers
said tonight that never before has
there been such a demand for ad
mission cards to the house galleries
for a joint session.
Some Congressional leaders say
the appearance of the president may
create something oa sensation and
tlien again nothing . may happen.
They are certain, however, that, soon
after the president speaks there will
be spirited discussion in both senate
and house of his plans for the trip,
if they are revealed, and of any pro
posed action on problems coming
before the peace conference. General
and virtually daily debate in the sen
ate also is expected while the peace
delegates are sitting in Paris.
Criticise the President.
Many members of both senate and
house privately criticise the persi-
dent for his decision to go to trance
and also for his failure to include a
member of the senate in the Ameri
can delegation, but none of them
will speak for publication. Nor have
those members of the house who
have been reported to be prepared
to question the president tomorrow
regarding the peace conference
made any announcement.
Some senators also are said to
have prepared resolutions for intro
duction tomorrow - proposing ap
pointment of a special senate com
mittee to go to Europe and keep
the senate informed on events at
the peace conference. A special
meeting of the democratic steering
committee has been called for to
morrow before the senate convenes
to discuss the general situation.
Besides dealing with the peace
conference, the president tomorrow
is expected to recommend legisla

Packers association, show that since

Peace Celebration Incorpor
ated With Chanuka and
Anniversary of Jews
Coming into Own.
Zionists of Omaha at their triple
celebration filled the Municipal au
ditorium last night when they incor
porated the Chanuka service and the
first anniversary of the Balfour dec
laration returning the Holy lands to
the Jews, with a peace celebration.
Dr. Rom, president of the Omaha
Zionist district, introduced Rabbi M.
N. Taxon, minister or the united
Jewish congregations of Omaha who
acted as chairman.
Flags of the allied nations were
carried to the platform, and as each
flag was presented the Ft. Omaha
band played the national anthem of
its respective nation,, except in the
presentation of the flag of the new
Jewish nation. When their flag
was presented a chorus of 100 voices
under the leadersip of Miss Kruger
sang the Hebrew national hymn,
Angel of Peace.
The flag service was followed by
the representation of the ange.1 of
peace impersonated by Miss Bernice
Rabbi Fleisher rendered the Bene
diction of the Lights, accompanied
by Miss Sophia Wenstein.
Victor Rosewater of The Bee was
introduced, and said that while he
was not a Zionist and did not speak
from a Zionist standpoint he be
lieves that the day of persecution
of the Jews the whole world over
was past. '
"Great progress has been made
during the last year," said Mr. Rose
water, "and I know that great prog
ress is to be made in giving the
Jews wherever they are, equal rights
with every other citizen or resident
of the country of their adoption.
The Jew has fought valliantly and
made sacrifices under the flags of all
the nations in this great war. No
one has come to the front and done
his full duty more than has the Jew.
"Another result of this great war
has been the strengthening of the
self-confidence of the Jew. He has
been able to show what he can do,
and show that the prejudice against
him has been unfounded."
Nation of His Own.
Harry B. Fleharty made a short
talk laying particular emphasis on
the part the Jew has played in the
history of the world and said: "Two
things of supreme importance will
come out of the new Jewish nation,
first the right of the Jew to stand
with any other nation and asser:
his right to the protection of that
nation because he has a nation of
his own, and second, since the liTs-
ftory of the Jewish people is so sig
nificant with the things that follow
of the higher ideals of human kind,
I cannot believe but that it will lead
to the higher ideals of brotherhood

Methodist church spoke of the Jew
in his relation to the early part of

Conservation Appeal From
Hoover Read in Churches
Washington, Dec. 1. America's
"food conservation week for world
relief" opened today with an appeal
from Food Administrator Hoover,
which was read in the churches over
Mr. Hoover, who is now in
Europe arranging for food supplies
for the populations of that country,
said the people of the United States
now have opportunity for renewed
service to mankind by helping
th. Jiigh conservation of food here
to feed 300,000,000 hungry people in
northern France, Belgium, central
Russia, southern Europe, Poland, and
The food administrator also dis
cussed the pledge given last sum
mer to the inter-allied food council
by the American government to
meet the food program of the allies
and said the ending of the war does
not release the American people
from that pledge.
"The same populations must be
fed." the message said, "and until
another season has passed, they can
not feed themclvcs.
x "In addition to the supplying of
those to whom we are already
pledged, we now have the splendid
opportunity and obligation of meet
ing the needs of those' millions of
people in the hitherto occupied ter
ritories who are facing actual starva
tion. "The people of Belgium, northern
France, Serbia, Roumania, Monte
negro, Poland, Russia and Armenia
rely upon America for immediate
aid. We mus also participate ill
the preservation of the newly liber
ated nations in Austria; nor can we
ignore the effect on the future world
developments of a famine condition
among those other people whom
we have recently released from our
"All these considerations mean
that upward of 200,000,000 people, in
addition to th&se we are already
pledged to serve, are now looking
to us in their misery and famine.
Our appeal today is, therefore, larg
er than the former appeal to the
'war conscience' of our people. The
new appeal is the 'world conscience'
which must be the guiding inspira
tion of our future program."

Hindenburg, who placed the army at
its disposal and refuses to resign

Eisner's Fall Forecast.
Copenhagen, Dec. 1. Advices
from Bavaria say the fall of Pre
mier Eisner is expected soon and
that Herr Auer, a socialist, is men
tioned as his successor.
Zimmermann Answers Eisner.
Berlin, Dec. 1. Dr. Alfred Zim
mermann, former secretary of foreign
affairs, replying to. the charge of
Kurt Eisner, the Bavarian premier,
that the government at Berlin was
responsible for the war, declares in
the Deutsche Zeitung:
"We did in fact consider that with
the crime of Sarajevo, Austria-Hungary's
hour of destiny had struck.
We did not prompt Austria-Hungary
to her action, but expressly advised
her against it. The Vienna ulti
matum, which we considered too se
vere, was communicated to us too
late for an endeavor to mitigate it."
Austria Joins Germany.
Berlin, Dec. 1. Dr. Hartmann to
day handed to Dr. W. S. Solf, the
German foreign secretary, creden
tials to the peace conference as rep
resentative of the German-Austrian
republic. Dr. Solf, on receiving Dr.
Hartmann, said he was deeply im
pressed by the decision of German
Austria to join Germany, as this
was the long fostered desire of Ger
many. Appeal Against Armistice.
Berne, Dec. l.---The German
Peace society, at Munich, Bavaria,
has directed a passionate appeal to
the Swiss press against the "terrible
(armistice) conditions and their in
justice to a new Germany, which has
ridded itself of its militaristic lead
ers." The appeal is addressed "all those,
in enemy or neutral countries who
represent the ideas of justice and
the right of national self-development."
The message continues:
"The most prominent and most
powerful of those is President Wil
son. That he does not content him
self with the original armistice re
quirements for evacuation of oc
cupied territories, but has agreed to
the awful conditions imposed, is
grimly portentious and probably
will weaken his own influence in the
extraordinary peace conference.
"We do not give up hope that he
will hold to his oft-repeated solemn
program,, that he is willing to judge
the concrete peace problems justly,
and that with the help of pacifically
minded circles in allied countries he
will be able to accomplish his

TODAY TO SERVE
U. S. Marshal Flynn to Take
His Boyhood Chum to
By the irony of fate it will be the
painful duty of United States Mar
shal Thomas J. Flynn, to take his
boyhood chum and life-long friend,
Johnny Lynch, to Fremont to serve
out his sentence of three months in
the county jail as a, result of his
plea of guilty to a white slavery
The two men, who are now of
middle age, grew up together in
Omaha, attended the same schools,
had the same friends and were
bound together by lifelong compan
ionship. Johnny Lynch grew to be a polit
ical power in the city and county
and the sensational trials, resulting
from some of his activities kept the
community agog for nearly a year,
and plunged him from the former
high estate he occupied.
In the meantime Hynch's chum,
Thomas J. Flynn, had also been
prominent in local and county poli
tics and has risen to the position of
United States marshal.
At 9 o'clock this morning Flynn
will leave the Union depot for Fre
mont with Lynch as his prisoner. It
will be his duty to guard Lynch and
see that he is turned over to the
Dodge county jail officials to serve
the sentence imposed on him by the
Marshal Flynn will go from Fre
.mont to Lincoln where James Ford,
brother of John Ford, is to be tried
in the federal court this week on a
charge of conspiracy to violate the
Reed amendment by transporting
liquor in dry territory.

London, Dec. 1. Discussing plans
for bringing to justice former Em
peror William of Germany, the
Times, asserts that "If we- had to
single out one culprit for punish
ment he would be the person." The
paper adds that the argument that
he cannot be punished because thcra
are others who also are guilty can
not be admitted.
"By that argument," the Times
continues, "a felon caught in the act
would escape punishment because
there are other felons who have not
yet been brought to judgment and
neither law nor common sense
would listen to such a plan.
"Besides, it is not proposed to
punish the kaiser alone. There are
others, too, who will be placed on
"The one argument against doing
what we can to bring this arch
criminal to justice is that at present
he is a mean and contemptible
figure, hiding his head from the ruin
he brought on his country and that
if we prosecute him, we may some
what impart dignity to him."
