Deliver, Colo., May 25. "Since
President Wilson made his declara

Latest Note From Huns Takes
Up Question of Responsibili
ties; Claim Damage Was
Done by Allies.
(By Associated Press.)
Thursday of this week is the time
limit set for the Germans to make
known at Versailles what Germany
proposes to do with regard to ac
cepting or rejecting the terms of
peace formulated for her.
Berlin reports still persist that the
German cabinet and the peace dele
gates at Versailles are one in their
intention to request modifications
on various clauses of the treaty, the
provisions of which, it is declared,
Germany will be unable to meet
without enslaving herself for a life
time. Tuesday is spoken of in a Berlin
dispatch as the day on which Ger
many's answer will be ready. The
latest note of the Germans their
thirteenth digs up again the ques
tion of responsibilities. Germany
asserts that the only thing for which
she is responsible is the violation
of Belgian neutrality. For this she
is ready to make reparation. It is
asserted that all the powers were
responsible for the war, and that the
material damage was done by the
allied armies, as well as by the Ger
mans. A new commercial treaty with
Switzerland, under which Germany
will give Switzerland coal in return
for cattle and produce, is being ar
tai.ged. Text of Notes.
Washington, May 25. The State
department tonight made public the
text of notes exchanged by Count
von Brockdorff-Rantzau, head of the
German peace delegation, and M.
Clemenceau, president of the peace
conference, relative to final deter
mination of the Saar basin and the
disposition of its coal products. The
question was first touched in a
note by the German delegation dat
ed May 13 and later was made the
subject of a distinct communication
May 16. The reply to both notes
was handed to the Germans yester
day. The text of the notes shows sug
gestions of the Germans that viva
voce discussion of questions as to
the amount of coal to be supplied
France and Belgium and the trans
portation of such supplies, that the
concerns damaged in northern
France participate "by shares to an
extent agreed upon in such German
coal mines as are charged with the
delivery of coal to the regions" de
cided upon, that in lieu of actual
control by the associated powers a
system of economic guarantees be
instituted, all were summarily re
jected. Would Create Confusion.
To the proposal that shares in
the Saar mines be issued to dam
aged French concerns, the reply as
serts that such shares "situated in
German territory and subject to
German exploitation would be of
doubtful value to French holders
and would create a confusion of
French and German interests."
The Inost surprising of the propo
sitions put forward in regard to the
Siar basin is based on an expressed
fear that the surplus of coal over
and above the home requirements
would not suffice for the quantities
which the treaty of peace has fixed
and the suggestion is made that the
consumption of coal in Germany,
France and Belgium be rationed in
due proportion. M. Clemenceau, in
reply, states: "That no arrangement
of the kind put forward could give
to France the security ami certainty
that she would receive from the full
exploitation and free ownership of
the mines of the Saar."
The only real concession made to
the Germans is to allay the appre
hension expressed by Count Brockdorff-Rantzau
as to Germany's abil
ity to effect the payment in gold
agreed upon.

Trade Excursion Proved Big
Success To Local Business
Omaha Businessmen Learn Much About a Territory,
Practically Unknown to Them Places That Were
Mere Names Few Years Ago, Now Thriving Towns
and Cities.
The scouts of old who had gone
into the promised land did not bring
back to the children of Israel more
wonderful tales of the untold wealth
and unlimited resources of Canaan
than were brought back to the peo
ple of Omaha by the members of the
trade excursion. At 0:45 Sunday
morning the special train pulled into
the Union station with its load of
Omaha boosters, tired from their
labors, but enthusiastic over the de
velopments of the northwest country
during the past few years.
During the trip a careful effort
was made to study the commercial
and industrial situations in the ter
ritory tributary to this city; and the
Omaha Chamber of Commerce has
information as to the business con
ditions of each separate line of com
mercial and business activities in
the 75 towns and cities visited dur
ing the week. The manager of a
large concern in this city discovered
that his representative was visiting
a certain town once every six weeks
when the town should be made at
least once every two weeks.
Thriving Towns Everywhere.
On every hand, there was evidence
of growth and prosperity which in
dicated a large movement of the
population of the east into western
First American Soldiers In
jured in Running Fight With
Bolsheviki; Inflict Swift
t Vladivostok, May 25. The first
casualties in the American expedi
tionary force in Siberia were ex
perienced May 21, when thrae
Americans were slightly wounded.
They were pursuing through the
hills bolsheviki who had attacked
a , running train guarded by Ameri
cans 40 miles northeast of Vladi
vostok, in the maritime province,
which is seething with disorder and
revolt against the authority of Ad
miral Kolchak.
The attack occurred on the sec
tion of the railroad under American
protection. .When the train was
fired on the Americans gave three
hours' chase.
Additional American troops have
been dispatched to the district. It
is not expected that they will have
difficulty 'in handling the situation,
despite reports that the organized
bands of bolsheviki number 10,000.
Considered Overt Act.
The attack is considered an overt
act. in view of the proclamation of
General Graves that no faction
should interfere with the operation
of the railroad. The bolsheviki are
believed to have been testing the at
titude of the Americans. The
promptness with which the Amer
icans inflicted punishment has
cheered the Kolchak government,
which expects an active campaign
by them. General Graves, however,
says the American troops are merely
protecting the railroad from all who
interfere with the transport of sup
plies and passengers.
Trains guarded by the Japanese in
the adjoining sector also are re
ported to have been attacked. An
entire trainload of arms and ammu
nition is reported to have been cap
tured. Old-Fashioned Ice
Cream Social for
the Nebraska Soldiers
New York. May 25. (Special
Telegram.) A special train, carry
ing gallons of ice cream, 150 pretty
girls, cake and fruit, and three gov
ernors of middle western states,
will leave for Camp Upton at 4
o'clock Monday afternoon to give
the 89th division an old-fashioned
ice cream social.
For some reason, passes to visit
New York City were" refused at the
last minute Saturday to members
of the 89th who arrived on the Le
viathan and the Imperator last
week. When Governors Allen of
Kansas. McKelvie of Nebraska, and
Campbell of Arizona found their
men were being held in camp, they
at once sent a strong protest to

the western boys the first peaches

OMAHA, MONDAY, MAY 26, 1919.
Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana
and " Wyoming. Places that were
mere names a few years ago are now
thriving towns and cities; much of
the unused land of a few years ago
has been turned into profitable
farms, and bad lands that were con
sidered worthless are giving forth
oil and natural gas in increasing
The building and housing situa
tion is much the same as in Omaha;
however, many of the towns are not
waiting for lower prices in building
materials or cheaper labor, but are
going ahead with large construction
programs. Yet, with all the growth
and development, the resources of
many acres have merely been
scratched by the pioneer, and await
the coming of more capital to bring
them to the full limit of their pro
ductivity. One prominent business man who
made the trip said that he could
now see that Omaha was to grow
more in the next 10 years than in
the past 40. The growth of Omaha
will be regulated by the progress
made in developing 'the country of
which it is the logical market cen
ter; there is going to be a bigger de
mand than ever for business build

Supporters to Ask Discharge
of Committee From Consid
eration; Plan Speed on
Washington, May 25. Congress
enters its second week tomorrow
with leaders planning to continue
the swift pace in legislation, set dur
ing the opening week.
Organization of committees, dis
posal of the woman suftage reso
lution, probably by adoption and
further debate on peace questions
and the league of nations, are the
principal features of the week's pro
gram in the senate.
Speed on appropriation bills is""
the immediate plan in the house.
The $15,000,000 Indian bill, expect
ed to be passed tomorrow, will be
followed by the $31,000,000 agricul
ture measure, with others rapidly
being put in form. Inauguration of

committees. The week's work at
the capitol will be curtailed by the
Memorial day holiday next Friday,
adjournments from next Thursday
until the following Monday.
Promises Interest.
Contest over the woman suffrage
resolution passed by the house last
week promised to excite senate in
terest. Supporters will call up the
resolution tomorrow, upon the mo
tion of Senator Jones, republican,
Washington, to discharge the sen
ate woman suffrage committee from
its consideration. This action would
place the resolution on the calendar
ready for a final vote, possibly to
morrow, and at least before the
week end. Belief is general that the
requisite two-thirds' majority will
be obtained.
Republican senators will meet in
executive conference before the sen
ate convenes to ratify the commit
tee assignments, including choice of
Senators Penrose, of Pennsylvania,
?nd Warren, of Wyoming, for chair
men of the finance and appropria
tions committees, respectively.

Announcement That Boys of
89th Will Stay in City
for Three Hours Re
ceived Here.
Official confirmation that Nebras
ka troops of the 89th division would
stop over in Omaha for three hours
on their way to Camp Funston, this
week, came yesterday in two tele
grams received by Mayor Smith and
the Chamber of Commerce from the
War department in Washington, and
Governor McKelvie, at present in
New York.

the Nebraska welcoming committee,
now with the soldiers at Camps Up
ton and Merritt, would remain with
them until date of departure, when
the entire delegation would accom
pany them into Omaha.

This is taken to mean that Oma
ha will officially be the center of
the state celebration. Local com
mittees are arranging a tentative
program to that end. It is thought
that the remainder of the governor's
staff, now in Lincoln, would come
to Omaha, led by Adutant General
Paul of the Nebraska national
guard, to participate in the review
ing and entertaining ol the soldiers
here. .
Though the exact date of the visit
remains undetermined, the news
that the Nebraska soldiers would
siclv be here, spread over the city
like wildfire. It will be Omaha's
biggest day. No effort will be
spared to make the preparations
come up to the greatness of the oc
casion. Both the mayor's commit
tee and the Chamber of Commerce
committees are to meet today to
discuss plans in detail.
Trip Takes Three Days.
An unofficial report Saturday from
New York indicated that the troops
would leave Camp Upton for Camp
Funston early this week. The trip
from New York to Omaha by way
of Chicago takes three days or am
ple time to complete all arrange
ments necessary for the welcome.
Henry Ashmusen of the Ashmu
sen airplane plant, speaking over his
proposed flight over the parade to
drop flowers on the marching col
umn, said yesterday:
"We will have one plane at least
in the air. I have several pilots
ready to make the flight. Two
weeks ago we received the only
government license granted itj this
Similar preparations are being
made at Fort CUnaha where Major
O'Brien, chief of the active flying
division of the government balloon
station, is tasking personal charge of
the proposed balloon flight over the
parade route. As soon- as the date
of the departure of the troops for
Omaha is announced, the major will
order enough gas generated to make
the flight possible.
"It's going to be a Twentieth cen
tury welcome," he said, speaking
of the plans made.

Flyers Forced Down 1,100
Miles From Newfoundland
Because of Engine Trouble;
in Perfect Health.
London, May 25. (By The Asso

and virtually given up for lost, Harry
G. Hawker and his navigator,
Lieut. Com. Mackenzie Grieve,.
British airmen, who essayed a flight
across the Atlantic ocean without
protection against disaster save what
their frail airplane afforded, are safe
tonight aboard a British warship off
the Orkneys. Tomorrow they will
reach the mainland and proceed to
London, where they will be ac
claimed as men returned to life.
Some 1,100 miles out from New
foundland and 800 from the Irish
coast, Monday, May 19, the aviators,
making the best of an engine which
was failing to function properly,
were forced to alight on the water..
The little Danish steamer Mary,,
bound from New Orleans and Nor

the wayfarers up and continued on
her northward voyage.

Lacking a wireless outfit, the cap
tain of the steamer was obliged to
withhold the good tidings of the
rescue until he was opposite Butt of

signalled by means of flags, that
Hawker and Grieve were aboard his
Immediately word was flashed to
the British admiralty, which sent
out destroyers to overtake the Dan

This was done and one of the de
stroyers took the airmen off, and
later transferred them to the flag
ship Revenge.

from its starting point. Pilot Haw
ker let loose his wheels and under
gearing, thereby lightening the
weight of the machine by a consid
erable amount, but making a possi
ble landing in Ireland a more haz
ardous venture. This, probably,
proved of much advantage when it
became necessary to alight on the
water. The airplane remained afloat
without difficulty during the hour
and a half it took the Danish steam
