By Associated Press.
Turin, Italy, Jan. 6. President
Wilson today wound up his visit to
Italy by a tour of Turin, which gave
him another tumultous welcome,,
quite as hearty as the greetings he
received at Geno? and Milan. Al
together, however, the greeting was
Again thousands of persons
flocked the streets and rent the air
with shouts of "Viva Wilson, God
of peace" and similar expressions.
Leave for Paris.
After a round of receptions, which
included the freedom of the city
being conferred upon him, a lunch
eon at which the cardinal was pres
ent and where the president made a
speech, and a visit to the university,
where an honorary degree was con
ferred upon him. President Wilson
and his party departed for Paris,
where they are due to arrive to
morrow. The most picturesque feature of
President Wilson's visit here was
the gathering of more than a thou
sand mayors of cities and towns in
Piedmont to Rreet him. They came
from the hills, the fields and the
valleys, and virtually every little
crossroad community was repre
sented, as well as the large cities.
Each of the mayors wore a sash of
the national colors. They represent
ed all walks of life and every condi
tion ot society.
There were among them pros
perous bankers, merchants, cultured
leading citizens, shy country men.
typical village blacksmiths and
artisans, each, representing the heart
of his community.
Ihe mayors passed before the
president in a lone line and each
received a smile and a hand clasp.
some ot the mayors were so shy
that when they looked in through
the door at the brilliantly lighted
reception room they had to be drag
ged inside by their friends. Some of
them kissed the hand of the presi
dent. Others bent their knees in
low bows. One of the men as he
passed the president muttered the
only English words spoken, "Good
day, Mr. Wilson."
Thousands Pack Square.
Crowds of thousands packed the
square before the palace of the
Duke of Piedmont and heard Presi
dent Wilson from the balcony de
liver a short speech. The crowd
was so great and was kept so far
away that few among it probably
heard the words of greetings the
president uttered, but none the less
the people were enthusiastic. Thous
ands of hats were tossed in the air
and there was a continuation of the
cries of "Viva Wilson."
Later at a luncheon, President
Wilson, responding to the welcome
accorded him, he repeated the words
of his Milan speech of Sunday
night, dealing with the sufferings of
the working classes for their part
in the war and telling the men of
Turin that while peace was to be
made in Paris it was their business
to continue to carry on their ef
forts for a lasting peace.
The war had been won, the presi
dent said, at a great price not of
blood and treasure alone, but of suf
ferings and hunger of women and
children and the loss of hopes and
ambitions, all of which made neces-i
sary the guaranteee of a lasting
Wilson in Good Spirits. i
While the demonstration for.
President Wilson was in progress
in Jront of the palace, several men
circulated among the crowds, dis
tributing pamphlets in Italian con
taining former President Roose
velt's comment on President Wil
son's 14 points for peace. At one
point of the march through the city
the air was filled with fluttering
papers, which turned out to be argu
ments addressed to President Wil
son, pointing out why he should
support Italy's claims to Dalmatia
and to other territorial expansion.
The president evidently was in
good spirit throughout the day, al
though he was tired from constant
travel and speech making. Never
theless, he entered into the happy
spirit of all the demonstrations, at
times leading the bands with ges
tures, while the crowds cheered. At
one time he threw kisses to the
crowds with both hands.

Florence, and he has a sister living

will be done, according to the Onawa
authorities. If not, burial will be in
the potters field at Onawa.
How Barnes Lost Arm.
Barnes lost his arm during April,
1894, and thereby hangs a story
which has been related many times
in Washington county and the coun
tryside. Twenty-five years ago the Barnes
family owned a farm near the river,
nine miles northeast of Blair. Pat
Quinlan of Blair owned land ad
joining the Barnes tract, but had
difficulty keeping renters on his
place on account of the troubles
caused by Barnes. In April of
1894 Mr. Quinlan and his son, Billy,
announced their determination to
occupy their land, and they served
notice on the Barnes family. When
the Quinlans appeared on the scene,
a pistol battle ensued. Billy Quin
lan, directing a 45 caliber Colts,
shot William Barnes' right arm off.
Harrison Barnes, father of the
Barnes boys, suffered a wound. ' 'ie
Quinlans then ordered that the two
wounded men should be removed
from the scene. On the next day
the Barnes advertised their farm for
The Barnes family comprised
three sons, William, Samuel and
Ross, and four daughters, one of
whom now resides in North Omaha.
Harrison Barnes, the father, lives in
Florence. William Barnes has been
in Omaha frequently during the
last few months. For several years
he has engaged in hunting and trap
ping near Decatur, Neb. He mar
ried Miss Henson, an English girl
of Blair. She killed herself, and a
daughter recently took her own

Polish Troops Occupy
New Positions Near
Borders of Germany
Berlin, Jan. 6. (By Associated
Press.) Polish troops have occu
pied the railway station at Chrosch
nik, four miles from Bentschen, and
have sent an ujtimatum to the Ger
man commander in the latter place,

ON QOESTI0N OF
Issue Presented by Serbia Has
Not Been Definitely Con
sidered by American
Paris, Jan. 6. The attitude of the
United States toward the treaty be
tween Italy and France, Great Brit
ain and Russia relative to the east
ern coast of the Adriatic has not
been clearly defined as far as known.
In stating the line to which the
Austrian troops must retire, the
armistice outlined the frontier as it
is defined in the treaty. This was
accepted by the inter-allied confer
ence, but it is understood that Col.
E. M. House, the American repre
sentative, stated that the designation
of frontier as it stood in the treaty
between the four nations was not
to be taken as expressing any posi
tion by the United States on that
The same situation was again pre
sented when American warships par
ticipated in carrying out of the na
val clauses of the armistice with
Austria. The occupation of ports was
made largely under the supervision
of the Ital'an navy, which had a
large number of warships along the
eastern coast of the Adriatic. -The
Jugo-Slav element there manifested
some opposition, but owing to the
delicacy of the issues involved, the
question of America's attitude, one
way or the other, was deferred.
Article 4 of the treaty provides
that the future treaty of peace will
give to Italy the Trentino, the whole
of southern Tyrol, the cities of
Trieste, Gorizia and Gradisca, the
province of Istria and the Istria
Article 5 give Dalmatia and the
Dalmatian islands to Italy. Other ar
ticles deal with Albania and zones in
Asiatic Turkey in case of Turkey be
