GERMANY BOWS TO
Headed by Dr. Wirth the Centrists
DECISION IS SPEEDY
'Cabinet Accepts Ultimatum and
Places Matter Squarely Up
Berlin, Kay 10.-Germany has ac
.cepted the Allied ultimatum. The
Reichstag tonight by a vote of 221 to
175, yielded to the final demands of
the Allied powers, and, in so doing,
agreed to fulfill the terms of the
treaty of Versailles "to the capacity"
of the nation to do so.
Dr. Wirth, the Centrist leader, final
ly succeeded in forming a coalition
cabinet composed of Centrists, major
ity Socialists and Democrats, which,
confronted by grave necessity, speed
ily decided that acceptance of the ul
timatum was the only course.
In making this announcement to
the Reichstag the new chancelor ask
ed for an immediate dedision by that
body, and in the voting which fol
lowed, the government was sustained.
' The Allied ultimatum required a
definite reply, based on "yes" or "no"
No conditional reply would be enter
tained, and the ultimatum was formu
lated to expire on the night of May
,)Enforcement to Follow
The total sum which Germany is
called upon to pay is 6,750,000,000
pounds; disarmament must be carried
out by Germany in accordance with
the provisions of the treaty and the
trial of war criminals .pust be put in
to effect. Numerous other important
terms in which Germany has been in
defauft, will be enforced.
Non-compliance with the Allied ul
timatum would have subjected Ger
many to the occupation by the Allies
of the Ruhr Valley and whaetver oth
er military apd naval measures were
The new cabinet is generally re
garded as a makeshift, largely un
representative, but good enough to
accept the Entente ultimatum, and
thus avoid a French advance into the
While the cabinet obtained a com
fortable majority in the Reichstag, it
has the undivided support of only the
majority Socialists- and clericals. The
members of the other parties, it is
declared, have given it support as a
makeshift and are not pledged to give
it parliamentary support.
New Cabinet Formed
London, May 10.-Dr. Wirth, the
German Centrist leader, says a Ber
lin dispatch to the London Times to
night has succeeded in forming a cab
inet from the Centre party, the Ger
man Democrats and majority Socialis
ts in favor of accepting the terms of
the Allied ultirhatum.
Dr. Wirth, pointing out in the
Reichstag the alternative to the -ul
timatun said that Germany could sign
thus putting on Germany a burden,
the end of which could not be foe
seen, or refuse to sign, after which
would follow occupation of the Ruhr
with terrible results to Germany's in
dustrial and economic life now and
in the future.
The unity and fret-dom of Germany,
continued the chancellor, had weighed
most with the new cabinet, and the
ministry had decided to accept Lhe
London terms, which they would un
dertake to fulfill within the limits of
Germany's capacity. This would I)e
only possible through the work and
energy of the people.
Except for a Commupist dlemon
stration, when Dr. Wirth asserted he
was acting in the interests of free
(lomn, there was no demonstr-ation (lur
ing the speech.

made in the schools, and while -there
is still room for more, I feel that quite
a number of the children will have
other corrections made during the

improved as to cleanliness of the

Prominent Citizen of Kingstree Slain
--Tom Poston Brought to Peni
tentiary Following Killing of J. P.
Kingstree, May 8.-Kingstree was
thrown into a state of excitement
early thih morning upon receiving
information that J. P. Miller, a well
known electrician, who has made his
home in Kingstree for several years
with his wife and little adopted
daughter, had been found dead by
the roadside one mile south of Cades
with a bullet hole through his head.
Mr. Miller had heen superintendent of
the electric plant at Lake City for
some time and it was his custom to
come to Kingstree every Saturday
night to be with his wife over Sun
day and was on his way here when
his car was run into one mile south
of Cades by another car going in op
posite direction and occupied by Tom
Poston and a young woman. Both
cars were damaged in the collision
and were on the road at the scene
of the killing this morning.
Mr. Miller's body was discovered
about midnight by Rural Policeman
Brockington, who brought the news
to Kingstree about 5 ,o'clock this
morning, informing Sheriff Gamble,
who at once notified the dead man's
wife and repaired to the scene.
The car was soon identified and
it was stated that Poston was driving
it last night. Sheriff Gamble found
Poston at his home a short distance
from where the tragedy took place,
and Poston at once admitted that he
had shot Miller. When asked wihy
he shot him, he said that le ran into
him and he then "got ard" and he
"just shot hell out of him."
It wias evident from the position of
the cars in the road this morning
that Mr. Miller had given the right
of way by driving his car very near
the edge of the ditch, leaving 20 feet
on his left. The girl is. said to be
the only eyewitness to the tragady.
Poston's revolver, of 45 caliber.
was empty this morning. Ife admits
shooting three times. Only one ball
entered Miller's body and that in tile
top of the head, apparently fired while
Miller was in a stooping posture at
the front of his car. The ball
coursed lownward and camne out just
over tbe left ear. without enterincr
the brain. The boy was brought to
Kingstree and preparel for burial
and was taken to Hartsville this
evening where interment will be
made tomorrow morning. The body
was accompanied by a delegation of
Masons fr-om Lake City, where Mlr.
Miller was a member.
A coroner's inquest was held on.
the spot this morning and a verdict
rendered to the effect that the de
ceased came to his death at the hands
of Tom Poston, who was brou-1ht. to.
Kingstree, but was hurried off to Co
lumbia later, where he will be placed
i the state penitentiary for safety.
Mr. Miller is well known in the
South. le was from Savannah, and
for . number of years was a profes
sioial baseball pylayer in the South
erun league. le is survived by his
wife and little adopted (laughter and
one brother who lives in SavannIah.
He was .10 years old.

their places, then each of three groups
lighted the lights of work, health, and
love by placing their torches in the
lire. A fter giving the hand sign of

flames leap up in response to the call.
In keeping with the fire ceremony the
ode to Fire was read by Weekago, one
of the Maidens of the Udawahtassee
group, then the count of the happen
ings of the group since organization
