CAN'T BLOCKADE! Impossible for England to Cut Us Off, Says German. Only Effect Would Be Neu trals; Teutons Prepared. BY ( ARI, W. ACKF.RMAN. Berlin. Jan. 31. An effective block ade of Germany is impossible. Admiral Von Holtzendorff. chief of the Ger man admiralty staff, declared today in an exclusive statement to the United Press. Kngland, he said, could under no circumstances stop commerce in the Baltic between Sweden and Denmark and Germat.y. For wcka. he pointed out, no British submarine has had anv success in the Baltic. The Rus sian fleet is frozen in Russian harbors. The only effect of a declaration of blockade by the allies, the chief if the admiralty said, would be upon neutrals and upon the women and children of Germany. He hinted strongly that Germany is prepared for any action by Great Britain. (Copyrighted.) MOTHER'S PLEA STRONGER THAN BARS OF PRISON I,eavettWorth, Jan. 31.

Mrs. Wilson occupied a box near the stage with Dr. Grayson. She i wore a magnificent bouquet of orchids. "I want at the outset to remove any misapprehensions in your minds," said the president. "There is no crisis; nothing new has hap - peiicd. I came to confer with you on a matter which we should confer on in any event. We should see that our house Is set in order.

Standing in the midst of these difficulties I want you to know I am in diffi culty." The president said he knew the people wanted him to keep the nation out of war. There was prolonged applause. "1 pledge you," he continued solemnly, "thut, God helping, I will keep it out of war." Milwaukee, Jan. 81. President Wil son threw down the gauntlet today to opponents of national preparedness who have declared that the movement sprang from the desire of munition and armament manufacturers to make money. "There are some things that are be ing said, that I hope you will not be lieve," the president declared. "It is being said among other things that this agitation for preparedness for national defense comes chiefly from those who are interested in sup plying the government with the muni tions of war and from those who are interested in supplying it with arma ment. "Gentlemen, do not allow yourselves to be misled by statements of that sort. Anything that the government does somebody is going to make money out of it; but the impulse for this thing does not come from those quarters.

WOULD OPEN HEBE Sells-Floto Show Wants Start From Topeka. to Applies to Commission for Re mission of License Fee. " The Sells-Floto circus wants to start its season :"n Topeka this spring and wants to bring the performers to gether here but the city commission could ee-? no excuse in that for per mitting the circus people to show without the payment of the usual five dollars per ear as a city license. A representative of the circus company visited each member of the commis sion this morning and the matter was brought up before the commission at its meeting. But there was nothing doing. Tne commission refused to vio late one of its own ordinances. The representative stat.-d that the show people would be in Topeka for five or six days five hundred of them getting ready for the reason. He ! pointed out that it would mean busi ness for Topeka hotels and restaur ants and for dealers in stock feed. The ccmnvssion saw that point but Commissioner V. G. Tardy also pointed out tht while tte circus would benefit a few it would also take a lot of cajih out of town. The present plan is to give the first show of the season in Topeka April 16. Previous to that there will be nearly a week during which perform ers will be brought together and put through their various stunts. The city ordinance provides for th pay ment of a license of five dollars per car and at this rate the license for the Sells-Floto show will be $130. "If the Sells-Floto people want to open in Topeka they will find a way to do so," said Mayor House, "they will not iet 13U stand in their way.

Naval vessels continued to search the Caro lina coast early today for the United States submarine K-5, reported miss ing since 1 o'clock Sunday morning but according to information available here their efforts had been futile. The submersible had not responded to wireless calls sent out from shore sta tions and naval vessels and this led marine men to express fears that the boat had suffered at least an accident to her wireless apparatus. A heavy fog hung over the coast between here and Cape Romain, 40 miles north of here, where the K-5 was last sighted and this made more difficult the task of the searchers. The K-5 with three other subma rines of the same type, the K-l, and K-6, convoyed by the submarine ten der Tallahassee, left New York Jan uary 27, en route for Key West, Fla., for maneuvers in southern waters.
