Is drawing1 short before the present
Armistice expires on February 17.
As a matter of fact, inspired re
ports quoting Marshal Foch regard
ing the possibility of Germany out
sumberlng the Allies on the western
Tront by March would be amusing if
they did not create satisfaction
feraong the Germans themselves.
Only Dangerous Commercially.
Marshal Foch's attitude and that of
She greatest world leaders Is taken
to be that It would be Lnposslble for
the Huns to renew hostilities in this
r the next generation, but. if given
the opportunity of a substitute drive,
it would be for the commercial su
premacy of the world.
If this attempted conquest wers
made possible it would eventually
couple economic with military effort
"which might have disastrous results
for the world. Consequently it is rc
jgarded as necessary to compile mili
tary terms which will be lasting and
Vhlch will actually be the first action
cf the peace treaty. Should unani
mous effort result from the present
Sneeting it would mark an Important
torward step by the conferees.
President "Wilson, Marshal Foch,
Geo. John J. Pershing, commander of
"the American forces; Field Marshal
Jlalg-, the British commander-in-chief;
General Diaz, the Italian commander,
and General Petaln, of the French
army, participated In the special meet
ing of the war council at the foreign
office yesterday, said Marcel Hutin in

Neither Have Money.
Neither of the two boys have any
money. Their joint bank account in
New York shows but $41 to their
credit. "When taken by Detective
Kelly they were occupying a poor
room on the third floor back for which
they paid J4.50. Wan had had no oc
cupation, for some time and Van. who
worked as a chemist, seems to have
been supporting .him. "Wan had work

Van's attitude toward his older

Because Wan is ill, the younger
brother waits on him at every turn.
No sooner was Van put In the witness

make the older brother's bed, to put
pillows back of his head, and attempt
in every way to make him comfort

PEACE ENVOYS WOULD
KEEP GERMANY AND
RUSSIA FROM UNITING
PARIS, Feb. 12. The associated
powers, according to International ex
perts, today face these two vital prob
lems: Imposition of sufficiently restrictive
.measures on Germany to remove any
possibility of her renewing the war.
Tempering of the peace settlement,
both as regards Germany and Russia,
to prevent those countries from enter
ing an alliance that would be a per
manent menace to world peace.
Upon the peace conference rests the
overwhelming responsibility of steer
ing a course between this international
Ecylla and Charybdis a course that is
admitted in some official quarters to
te so narrow and dangerous that its
successful navigation will require the
utmost finesse and skill.

I cannot credit Wan's story that little
Wu killed his employer. He seemed
a very nice boy. Dr. Wong was fond

ment to the Jury told of Wu's urging
him to come to the mission and as
sist him in robbing his employer.
Looking very pale and weak, after
the ten trying days which preceded
his confession. Wan said:
"At Christmas time Wu telegraphed
me that he wanted to see me. He
again telegraphed me January 2J
and asked that I come to Washington.
He told me he had trouble with 4r.

van spoke only once. That was in
quick protest to the suggestion that
he could have had any connection
with the actual killing itself.
"That's not right about me." he said.
"I did not even know the check was
not a good one when. I tried to cash
It at the bank."
The jury's verdict, rendered le3s
than five minutes after the last wit
ness had spoken, reads:
"We find that T. T. Wong, C. H.
Hsle, and Ben Sen Wu came to their
death at 2023 Kalorama road north

of January 29, and evening of Jan

Wan and T. I. Van. and hold both for

Wan Explains Killing.
Talking to the newspaper writers
for the first time, while waiting for
the automobile which was to take
him to 4 cell in the District Jail, Wan
seemed to want to explain further
just why he killed his friend, Ben
"Wu did not try to kill me he
didn't even threaten to kill me." he
said. "When he told me he killed Dr.
Wong, friend of my family, I shot
him in the back of the head. When
Wu fell, I turned him over to see if
he was dead. Then I fired another
shot in his heart. I hate dhim for
killing Dr. Wong.
"I am sorry I put the police to so
much trouble, but Chinese are never
supposed to confess.
"I was very angry at Wu for kill
ing Dr. Wong. I made up my mind
to kill him. When he was not look
ing I took the pistol from the table
and put two cartridges in It. I asked
Wu to go in the cellar and talk with
me. He said 'Wo talk here.'
"All the while I was twirlirg the
revolver around in my hand as though
I was playing with it. but I was real
ly waiting my chance to kili-Wi.. He
wanted me to stay in the house with
him that night, so I comp'-iined that
it was cold and asked him to .tir up

he had to pass by the body of Mr.
Hsie. He stooped a little to look at

and he fell right near Hsjc, almost
on top of him.
"I walked over to him, turned him
over, and held the pistol close to hi
heart and fired again. I did not cover
his fac. I hated him too much. Then
I washed my hands and walked out of
the front door of the mission and
took a car.
"I hurried down to Ninth street,
where I had left my brother In a pic
ture show. It was after 11 o'clock.
My brother was very cross because I
did not come earlier. He knew noth

him until the next day on our way to

able to keep tabs on everyone who
has come under suspicion as a dan
gerous agitator. It was stated, how
ever, that this process of cataloguing
does not always militate against
thofce who have come under suspicion.
To the contrary, the Attorney Gen
eral said, the investigations often
.serve to exonerate those who have
been suspected without' grounds.
The round-up of undesirables, which
had its beginning in the Northwest
and resulted In a batch of prisoners
being taken to Ellis Island, N. Y.,
to await deportation, was planned by
the Departments of Justice and Labor
month.-, ago, following the passage in
October of the alien anarchist act.
This act he describel as the most

f the alien internment measure. Un
ier its provisions, lie stated, agitators
who preach the overthrow of the Gov

from the country, even without the
formality of a trial.
He explained that United States of
ficials would have been busy under
this act months ago. except that be
cause of war conditions it was im
ossible to return these men to the

tions in those countrier. and the sub

tors that prevented quicker action.

that they are necessarily Russians
and Scandinavians, but that these are
