Twenty-fifth Anniversary of

BERLIN", Juno 16. Tho twenty-fifth
anniversary of tho accession of Em
poror William to tho imperial throne
was celebrated today throughout the
German empire as a general holiday.
Tho commemoration, which had been
deferred from its actual date out of re
spect to tho memory of the emperor's
father, Frederick, coincides with the
forty-second anniversary of the trium
phal return of his grandfather at the
head of his victorious army after the
Franco-Prussian war, and was naturally
marked by considerable military dis
play. Emphasis, however, was laid also on
the peaooful aspects of tho emperor '6
quarter-century reign industrial and
civic developments and tho material
prosperity of the country.
The presentation of an address from
the American Peace society by Andrew
Camegio, B. S. Brookings of St. Louis
and J. G. Schmidtlapp of Cincinnati,

bringing ont this aspect of occasion.
Ho responded to Andrew Carnogio's.

his twenty-five years' peaceful reign
with an omphatic, "I hope wo shall

The Americans presented to the em
peror an address signed by a large
number of their countTymon. The ad
dress was in part as follows:

Believes Country Will Back
Him Up in His View That
the System Ought to Be
MESSAGE SENT TO
Administration Bill to Be In
troduced in House and Sen
ate Before Friday of
WASHINGTON, June 16. Public
opinion, tho sovereign voice in law
making, is to decide whether there shall
bo currency legislation in tho preseut
sossion of congress.
This was tho view which Representa
tive Oscar W. Underwood, Democratic
leader in tbo house, took after a con
ference with President Wilson at the
White house late today.
In the face of conflicting expressions
from prominent Democrats in congress
aB to the necessity for currency reform
at tho present session, it jb the avowed
purpose of tho administration to launch
a curenoy bill iu the house and senate
before Friday of this week, which will
be accompanied by the president's mes
sage describing what he believes to bo
the nocossity for banking reform. Then,
according to Mr. Underwood, tho plan
of tho house will be to rest on its oars,
thoroughly discuss tho now banking pro
posals and await tho expression of tho
newspapers of the country and the opin
ion of the bankers and business mon
generally as to the merits of tho Demo
Will Act on Demand.
Should the discussion of the bill in
congress bo backed up by an insistent
demand from the country at largo for
an immediate revision of the currency
system, it is tho belief of the adminis
tration that senators and congressmen
will yield their pleas of porsonal dis
comfort in tho approaching hot weather.
The presi'dout believes strongly that
the country will back him up in his
view that tho curroncy system ought
to be reformed so as to alleviato any
stringency that might follow tho pass
ago of tho tariff bill. Representative
Underwood, aftor his conference with
the president, said that whilo tho
Democratic party had made up its mind
what ought to be done on the tariff,
currenoy reform was practically a now
question to it and it would bo impos
sible to prodict how long tho house
would take for a discussion of tho bill.
Refuses to Guess.
It would take some time, he added,
for members to hear from their home
communities. Ho would not venture a
guess as to whethor approval or dis
approval of the bill could bo reached in
a month or longer and took tho posi
tion that the currency situation could
only be solved by the attitude which
tho nation revealed when tho bill waB
debated thoroughly. h
Meantime Socrotary McAdoo, Chair
men Owen and Glass of the senate and
house banking and currency commit
tees, finished tho bill that roprcsonts
tho administration's views. I wont to
the printer tonight.
There has boon no decision as to
whethor the president will road his
message to congress in advance of tho
introduction of the bill or afterward.
Scope of the Bill.
The bill, in its present form, em
braces a system of regional reserve as
sociations with local governing boards,
all under control of tho federal roservo
board of nino members at Washington.
Elasticity of the currency is to bo se
cured throughout the issunuco of
Unitod States notes to these roservo
associations, and by them to tho local
banks, upon adequate socurity, includ
ing commorcinl paper of a qualified
class. Tho local banks making up oach
rosorvo association will ho required to
koep a specific amount of their reserves
in the association vuults.
No prosont issue of troasury notes
or gold or silver certificates aro to be
disturbed by tho new currency, but tho
bill would roquire the gradual retire
ment of all national bank notes with
in a maximum period of twenty yeaiv.
The new currency system would boeomc
operative July 1. 10.14.
The president's message was sent to
tho printer tonight. It will bo road to
the cabinet tomorrow.
Speoch-mnking in tho house on cur
roncy will begin booh. When tho house
moots tomorrow, according to a plan
arranged today, a roquest will bo made
for time for Representative Ncclcy of
Kansas, a member of tho committoo
majority, to speak at the earliest op
portunity. Ho believes, with Represen
tative Henry of Toxns, that thoro
should be an immediate .renewal of tho
hiquirv into tho "monoy trust," ,

WASHINGTON, June 10. Henry !.
Oxuard, known as the ''father of the
beet industry," nnd vice president jH
of tho American Beet Sugar company,
was tho principal witness today before
the senate lobby investigating commit
tee. Mr. Oxnnrd was on tho stand for jH
severnl hours, and proved an entertain
ing witness. He told the committee
how New York bankers who helped to
organize tho beet sugar company in
sisted upon putting in about $15,000,000
water in a $20,000,000 corporation. How
he and his brothers had mado about a IH
million by the sale of their watered
stock, and gave warning that tho Un
derwood bill, wih its free sugar pro- iH
vision, would result, in his opinion, in
the formation of a new "sugar trust"
which would not violate the anti-trust jH
The committeemen took Mr. Oxnard
over tho ground that other anti-free jH
sugar witnesses have covered. He told
them he received $10,000 a year in his IH
official capacity, but It was not for JH
"legislative work." IH
Knew About Pamphlet.
The quo.itloners learned that he had t
been fighting reductions in sugar duties
for many years, and heard with Intoreat lf
that he knew something about "Sugar
at a Glance," the celebrated pamphlet
that was made a senate document and
sent over the country, postage free, under
the frank of Senator Lodge.
The committee got a surprise today
when A. Y, More, owner of the Fargo
(N.. D.) Courier-News, and A. M. Baker,
general manager of that paper, gave their
testimony about an editorial recently
printed In the News, which Senator fl
Gronna thought was a reflection upon
him and which led to their belrur sub
poenaed. Both men made the Ions' trip
to Washington in answer to the senate
summons and then declared under oath
that they knew nothing of the editorial
until they saw it In print It was writ
ten, they said, by Jamos A. Metcalfe of
Glendlvo, Mont., temporarily employed
while Bakor was away from Fargo.
Both More and Baker said that they had
no reason to doubt Senator Gronna'e po
lit leal and prlvato Integrity and honesty,
and More said that a retraction might be
printed. Metcalfe had written the edl
torl&l, they thought, merely In a flippant
Another witness was Aaron Gove of
Denver, employed at 55000 a year by tho
Great Westorn Sugar company, who said
he had given up the last eight years to
a study of the economic sldo of sugar
and to convincing congressmen of tho
soundness of his views for a duty on
that article. Mr. Govo testified that be- -
fore his employment by the sugar com- jB
pany he liad been superintendent of
schools at Denver. Il
Although the thermometer outside tho
committee room was trying hard to step JH
over tho 100 mark, and two electric fans
wore kopt busy all day long In an en- IH
deavor to make a cool spot In tho sur- iH
rounding heat. Mr. Gove sat for a half- jl
hour In the witness chair with an over- 'H
coal over his kneos. He had not talked IH
with many senators, he said, but he re- IH
mombored a dinner with Senator Brlstow 'H
at which ho had tried to convince the fM
sunator of tho necessity of tho "Dutch
