BERLIN, Aug:. 27.?The German
government will resign and take
the issue to the people "if reactionaries

Instigation such as led to the
murder of Mathias Erzberger."
Chancellor Wirth declared today.
An ultimatum to that effect may
shortly be issued.
"It has been suggested to me that
I issue a proclamation to the public

Wirth said. "That would

The forces of the right In Germany
have been known to be dissatisfied
for some time, and the
'igning of the American treaty has
by no means eased the situation.
No occurrence sine* the revolution

people as has the assassination.
The entire flrst pages of all newspapers
are devoted to it.
There Is no Indication yet of the

conservative press admit -rudgingly
It was undoubtedly a political
crime. There is some significance
seen in the fact that Oltweg von
Hlmehfeld, a student, who was
sentenced in February last year
for an attempted attack on Erzberger,
was released from prison
a fortnight ago.
The Socialist official news agency
has Issued a manifesto which reeks

'The seed which the Conservatives
have sown, has borne fruit."
The Conservative press deplores
the murder and is plainly disquieted
over the possible political
results. The Allgemeine Gazette
warns against any attempt to make
political capital out of the deed by
, "insane fanatics."
Erxberger was recently re-elected
and returning to the Reichstag in
September would have become the
leader in the approaching struggle
to tax capital heavily. Although
minaliy a Clerical, he was in
Wftlity a Christian Socialist.
Had Coaaervatlve Plans.
Soon after peace was declared he
began work on a plan to give
workmen even more extensive
rights in supervision and greater
profits. The plan was more extensive
than that of the Weimar constitution.
He had already incurred
the hatred of all "patriots of the
old school" by accepting the responsibility
of signing the armistice
In peace time when all the old
leaders fled or sulked In ther tents
his taxation plan added fuel to the
flames. No other man in Germany
was attacked so continuously by the
Conservative press. There is no
reason to assume the murder a result
of a deliberate conspiracy but
it Is undoubted that the unmeasured
denunciations by the Conservatives
was directly responsible for the

Startling Testimony Put
Before Court by the
"LAST TRIP TAKEN
TO PROVE IT WEAK"
Sensation Is Expected if
Board's Findings Are
(United Press Cable to Wasbiarton Herald.)
HULL, Aug. 27.?The official inquiry
into tbe disaster to the ZR-2.
which began today at Howden, near
here, will almost certainly produce
a tremendous sensation if the result
of its findings is made public.
Evidence of a startling nature,
showing that the giant dirigible
was considered unsafe by most British
airmen who knew her nas been
placed before the board of inquiry.
Written reports of airship experts
to the effect that tbe ZR-2 was not
strong enough were handed to certain
authorities before the fatal
flight, it was learned.
^ Ttgator ronfrsnrs.
Lieut. Wann. injured navigator of
the wrecked dirigible, today called
a police inspector to his bed In the
infirmary here and handed him the
following signed statement to be
laid before the inquiry:
"Tbe accident to the ZR-2 was;
due to structural weakness. I had
intended this to be my las: flight-"
From what was said today by1
British experts who are experi- j
enced In handling llehter-than-air
craft it is evident that the view
was generally held that the ZR-2
would never have finished an Atlantic
"Tmp^ssiblv favorable" weather
conditions wo"ld have been necu- J
sary to ass'st her across, British
airmen believed. ,
Other British officers who perished
on the fatal trip also knew
that she was structurally defective,
their comrades said here today.

It was said, that the dlrl?lhie

PARDON FOR DEBS
President Withholds His Decision
Until Treaty Is
Belief that President Harding intends
to pardon Eugene V. Debs
after peace with Germany has been
ratified prevailed here last night,
despite the secrecy which officials
maintain regarding the case.
Announcement was made yesterday
that the President will hold up
his decision on the Debs case until
after formal peace has been estab'ifhed.
This led to the belief that
the President is preparing to releast*
he veteran Socialist leader from
Attorney General Dauerherty has
his recommenlation regarding Debs
r ady to submit to the President
but he intimated that this is still
subject to change.
Link< d with the Deb?* case is the
entire question of amnesty for political
prisoners which probably will
be reviewed by the President when
he takes up the Debs case. Many
so-called political prisoners are now
out on parole or have completed
their sentences, and are now seeking
to have their citizenship restored.
Both President Harding and Attorney
General Daugherty have indicated
the* take a sympathetic
view of the case of Debs.
