PEACE TERMS ARE NOT

chanc: ;:or, has followed the lead
taken by President Ebert. li a 'state
ment to the national assembly in
Berlin, couched in language more
forcib> than that c; lEbert, Scheide
mann deelared that the peace terms
are not acceptable to Germany.
Cheering from all the factions in
the ch:amber, excepting from the
benches of the Independent Socialists,
even from the press ::allery, greeted
the chancellor as he characterized the
treaty as "a dreadful ani murderous"
document whi::h would miake an enor
mous jail of Germany in which sixty
miliion persons woaidl have to labor
for the victors in the war. The speak
er several times chirged deception
on the part of President Wilson and
the abrogation of his promised four
teen points or peace.
Thret.Len to Withdraw.
It is report"..l thx.t Scheidemann has
been informed by the leaders of the
two Democratic parties and of the
parties of the Center that these fac
tions will withdraw their representa
tives from the government if the
peace treaty is signed.
Meantime, however, the erman
plenipotentiaries at Versailles are
continuing their work of assimilating
the terms of the treaty and formu
lating such protests as they desird to
make while others of the delegation
are in Berlin discussing the prospects
with the - government. Still anotsher

Leaving Huns Alone.
As for the Allied and Associated
representatives they are leaving the
Germans severely alone for the pres
ent, except for dealing with their
communications and are engaged in
setting up the peace terms which are
to be handed Austria; endeavoring to
disentangle the snarl in the seikn of
discord with Italy as regards Fiume
and the Adriatic region and discuss
ing the Turkish problems.
Optimism has been expressed in
Paris that the Italian situation is
nearing settlement, the Italians evinc
ing a disposition to make concessions.
Premier Orlando again called Tues
day at the residence of Col. House
of the American delegation and went
over the situation, while in the after
noon President Wilson had an en
gagement with Thomas Nelson Page,
the American ambassador to Italy,
with whom the doubtless went over
the disputed ground. -
As for the Austrian treaty it is
said to be almost complete. While the
details of it have not become known
it is asserted that in some respects
it will follow the erman document.
This is true especially as regards
trial by court-martial of persons re
sponsible for violation of the rules
of warfare during t'he period of hos
tilities. although it. is said no de
mand is to be made for the trial of
former Emperor Charles by an inter
national civil tribunal. The delimita
tion of the boundaries of Austria will
follow the lines laid down in the
treaty of London.
Dlesire to Communicate.
W'ith the expected advent of the
Austrian delegates at St. Germain-En..
Laye, the Germans at Versailles are
seeking pernussion to be allowed to
communicate with them.
Count von Brockdorff-Rantzau head
of the German continge'nt. is said to
have carried his request to the point
of desiring to send a German dlele

arrival. The answer (of the Allied andl

Washington, M.ay 13.-ads for
200,000 tcons of steel rails v. re asked
today by the railroad administra inn,
in line with Director General Hines'
announcement of policy after the
final disagreement on a standard price
in conference last week with steel
producers. The bids will be received
next Saturday and contracts will be

In view of the controversy between
the railroad administration and the
defunct industrial board of the De

interest attaches to the bids which
will be submitted. The standard price
for openi-hearth steel rails, as an

such earnestness that she did not fail
to hold the attention of the children.
Mrs. Tupman spoke on the need

TO BUILD SHIPS FOR
Orders for Probably Three Million
ORDER BY THE PRESIDENT
But Work Must Not Interfere With
Construction of American Mer
Washington, May 13.-Orders for
possibly 3,000,000 tons of ships to be
built for foreign account in American
shin, yards may be placed as the re
sult <f an order by President Wilson
perm ittming the building of such ships
provided it could be lone without i.:
terferni.., with the construction of rce
A meri-an rierchant marine. The Pres
ident's action was announced in a
statement issued today at the White
flouse. Officials of the shipping board
todahy would not. venture more than :a
guess as to the tonnage American
shipbuilders might expect as the re
sult of the President's order, which,
it was said at the White House, had
been issued at the suggestion of
(haiiiiian iiuirley, of the shipping
board. (good substantial orders, it
was said by oflicials, may he expected
for the Pacific and Atlantic yards.
Big Orders Expected.
Norway is expected to place large
orders, possibly 1,000,000 tons, and
France and Italy probably will let
contracts for considerable tonnage, it
was explained. Fr ice already has
placed orders for 50( 000 tons in Eng
land for delivery in three years, and
officials believe, may give American
yards a good share of the 1,000,000
additional tons which that country is
expected to require. Italy, it was said,
probably will be in the market for
approximately 500,000 tons, part of
which may be built in the United
States, but England is not expected
to place any orders in American yards.
Situation to Be Relieved.
At the shipping board it was said
that only five, or possibly six, yards
are now in a position to take on for
eign orders. This situation will grad
ually be relieved, it was said.
In respect to the prices to be quot
ed by American shipbuilders to for
eign interests it was recalled that the
last price made for ships b.6i'9 a
American yards was $170 a ton All
contracts for foreign ships wi'l be
placed privately, shipping board offi
cials said, but under the general sup
ervision of the board.
The Statement. i
The statement given out at the
White House announcing the Presi
dent's order said:
"Secretary Tumulty announced that,
upon the suggestion of Chairman
Ilurley, of the United Stats Shipping
Board, the President has taken ac
tion that will permit American ship
yards to accept foreign contracts so
far as that can he done without inter
fering with the building program for
President Wilson, shortly after his
arrival from Paris, is understood to
have told a high F-ench oflicial that
Amric'an shipyard at that time
would b" unable to buildl ships for
French account, as the American
yards were to be reserved for such
