Marshal Foch, it is announced, will naturally be a member of the peace congress as the commander-in-chief of the allied armies. The technical representatives of the French government probably will in clude Leon Bourgeois, authority on the subject of a society of nations. Council Taking Form. Announcement of the French del egation, in addition to bringing a distinguished array of French statesmen into the arena of the peace congress, hag begun to give definiteness to the delegations, of the great powers, of which the American delegation has been by itsel; up to the present time. It is expected that the British, Italian and Japanese delegations now will be announced officially. The leading figures, like Premier Lloyd George and Foreign Secre tary Balfour for Great Britain; Premier Orlando and Foreign Minister Sonnino for Italy and Viscount .Chinda and Ambassador Matsui for Japan, already are known, although not officially ap pointed, but the designation of a full list will bring into being the real directing force of the congress, consisting of 25 members repre senting hve great powers of the world. French Delegation Strong. will be this supreme council or tne great powers wnicn win guide and shape the deliberations and results of the entire congress, and while all the, other powers will later have a full hearing and a voice, it will ne tne great powers which will initiate and direct the general conduct of affairs. The personnel of the French dele gation is recognized as exception ally strong, combining the political, diplomatic, financial, economic and military sagacity of. France. The appointment of Jules Cambon is particularly gratifying to the Ameri can delegation . owing to his inti mate knowledge of and sympathy with American affairs resulting from his long service as French am bassador in Washington.

Congress Charged With Wilfully Wasting Money mm mmmi i Advice of Experts Ignored and Funds Misappropriated, Charges Former Head of Security League. New York, Jan. 9. Charges that members of congress have "re peatedly ignored the advice of our naval board and of our army and navy heads, and have wasted money by log rolling and misappropriation of funds," were made by S. StaV wood Menken, former president of the National Security league, here today in testimony before the con gressional committee investigating the activities of the organization. The scene of the inquiry was trans ferred from Washington to New York today. Asked by Representative Johnson of Kentucky, chairman of the com mittee, to explain what he meant, the witness declared that congress for years had been "spending the public money where votes are thick est." He cited as an instance of "mis appropriation" the postoffice build ing at Bar Harbor, Maine, "a town of a few thousand 'inhabitants.'' which he declared "would do credit to a city of a million." When pressed as to what con gressmen he considered guilty of wasting money for personal pur poses in this instance, Mr. Menken answered, "whatever congressman or congressmen were instrumental in having it put through." Mr. Menken severely criticised the method of making, naval ap propriations, declaring that in soma cases dry docks had been built "where there was not enough water to bring the ships to the dook." To a. question of Representative Harrison of Mississippi whether Mr, Menken meant there was per sonal corruption" -in congress the )f the witness answered no. Asked why he did not enter con gress himself and "help New York out," Mr. . Menken said he would gladly run if Mr. Harrison would getf the nomination for him "from the political powers that be." He said he thought New York had the "finest misrepresentatives in congress of any city in the United States.'.' . Allies Will Destroy Forts at Dardanelles Unless Turks Disarm London, Jan, 9.

Fakhri Pasha, commander at Medina, offered one excuse after another until the allies were forced to send an ultima tum to the Turkish government.

Iowa Family of Five, Sick With Influenza, Burned in Their Home Cedar Rapids, la.. Jan. 9. Frank Blizek, his wife, their six-year-old son, 14-year-old daughter and 2 year-old daughter were all to death early this afternoon, when their farm home at" Oxford Junction in Jones county was destroyed by fire. Their charred bodies were re covered from the debries five hours later. All members of the family were ill with influenza. They lived in a. valley half a mile from the nearest house. Unable to get help, the father, in spite of his illness tried to get their meals. The rest were all confined to their beds. ' Soon after 1 o'clock residents in the nearest farm house saw a cloud' of smoke rising over the hill top. When they arrived at the Blizek home it was in flames and the roof had fallen in. An alarm was given over the countryside, but it was several hours before the throng could begin searching for the bodies From a Staff Correspondent Lincoln, Jan. 9. (Special.) Sel (lon has the state of Nebraska wit nessed inaugural cerembnjes of greater, democratic simplicity than those that marked the induction in to office of Governor McKelvie. The house chamber was packed with members of the upper and lower houses, state officials and em ployes and guests from all over the state. It. is doubtful if a similar incident has ever occurred irr the history of any state in the union where the outgoing and the incoming gover nors were possessed of such youth and personalities as occurred here today. The messages of the two execu tives were listened to with the closest attention, and while the ceremonies were in progress the events that transpired were made a part of the pictured history of the state by the operation of moving pidture machines. A feature was that both men advocated dry laws in the nation. .... Officers Take Oath. burfiC(j$Jeutenant Governor Barrows.

Vilna has fallen into the hands of the bolshevik army, several thousand strong, which drove out the Polish militia. A massacre of civilians began at once, partly because the Poles had offered resistance and had arrested or shot the members of the local bolshevik committees. The Polish troops, who had no cannon and only a few cartridges per rifle and were under command of General Veitko, retreated to Lanovarova, where they were dis armed by the Germans and sent to Bialystok. There they were rob bed by the Germans and were start ed off for Polish territorv. Lemberg, where the Poles are defending themselves against the Ruthenians, appears - safe for the time being. Paderewski Appeals to Patriotism. The political situation at Warsaw is stationary. As a result of inter views which Ignace Jan Paderewski has had with . General Pilsudski, Paderewski has agreed to form a new cabinet, provided the socialists now holdihg places in the ministry withdraw from their predominating position. General Pilsudski ex pressed himself as not wishing to use his authority to force the with drawal of these socialists. Paderewski is working hard and making appeals to patriotism. He declares that he is willing to sac rifice every ambition if only a cabi net can be formed which the allies can recognize and extend aid to with safety to themselves as they fear that a certain sort of cabinet would lead to headlong bolshevism. General Pilsudski and other lead ers are being' told very plainly that the allies will help only when Po land is internally united. Prince Eustache Sapieha, who led the recent attempt to overthrow the' government, is still in prison. He was arrested by the personal red guard of Minister of the Interior Thugut, who himself had previously been arrested. People Starving in Petrograd. Refugees from Petrograd say that the streets are full of starving peo ple, many of whom have money, but can get no food. There has been an outbreak in Riga. The popula tion there is composed of Letts and Esthonians, who for the most part are socialists and opposed to property-owning, and the aristocratic classes, who are of German origin. Messages from Kiev report that city and district quiet, now that there is no longer any thing left to steal, or land owners left to rob or kill. Kiev seems to be joining with Moscow. Leon Trotzky, the bolshevik for eign minister, and Nikolai Lenine, the bolshevik premier, are making overtures to the Ukranians, saying that they have no wish to turnover the Ukraine government to tne op-nosition. Workmen's congresses have been formed at Kiev, one Ukranian and the other Russian. The Russian congress is entitled the workmen and soldiers' deputies and is a tool of the bolshevik. Both congresses have declared that they do not wish intellectuals among their members. Farmers' committees have Ieen formed here to distribute public lands and the lands stolen from former land owners. ". Leaders Will Press Famine Relief Measure in House Washington, Jan. 9.

German Republic. By Universal Service and London Daily Express. Berlin, Jan. 8. (Special Cable Dispatch.) From the central com mittee, directed by Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, I have obtained a summary of the views of the extreme radical socialist, or bolshevist party. It is as follows: "The Spartacides are determined to carry on a class struggle of the working classes against bourgeoise until it has established a govern ment by and for the working classes, excluding all others from participa tion. "The Spartacus band represents the great mass of the proletariat, not only of Germany, but of the entire world. The present revolution does not'affect Germany alone, but is world-wide. It aims to end in a universal establishment of a dictatorship by the proletariat, with all resistance crushed. for the Aims of Bund. The immediate object of the Sparatacus bund in Germany was outlined at the recent Spartacus congress as follows: Disarm all police and soldiers not belonging to the proletariat. Control all munitions plants. Disarm the ruling classes; arm the workmeen in the bolshevist militia. Free the individual from army dis cipline. End the military caste. Establish a revolutionary tribunal. Try the chief men guilty of caus ing the prolongation of the war, in cluding the Hohenzollerns.-IIinden-burg, Ludendorff and Tirpitz. The political purpose is to end the federation of states and substi tuting a single German Socialist re public, absolute socialization of the state, with a six-hour day and in surance against unemployment. To Confiscate Property. The first work lying before the' proletariat government, which they hope to form, will be the couhsca tion of the dynastic fortunes and incomes, cancellation of state and public iebts, including war loans, but excepting poor , people's small towns; confiscation of the real estate, all banks, mines, industrial and commercial companies and of all fortunes above a certain low level.
