Viscount Bryce, former British ambassador to the United States, threw back upon Ger many the responsibility for prolonging the war in a luncheon address before the Pilgrim society in the Hotel Savoy this afternoon. The affair was in honor of James M. Beck, of New York, former assistant attorney gen eral of the United States, who is to leave for Amerlca- Bryce made a direct reply to a letter recently sent him from America urg ing that he use his best efforts In behalf of peace. He answered that Germany is not willing to agree to any reasonable settlement at the present time. "Mr. Beck will wish to tell his coun trymen at home what we think of war and peace,'' began Viscount Bryce. "Recently an address reached me, signed by Americans, saying the war must end in a draw and asking 'why not make peace at once and save fur ther bloodshed." It is significant that most of the signers were of German origin. We all fetl the horror and suffering of war as much as any pacifist in American, but we cannot agree to any peace such as was sug gested. War Not End in a Draw. "Firstly, we do not think the war will end in a draw. The allies are going to win, because they will prove stronger on land and also hold un shakeable control of the sea. "Secondly, Germany is not yet pre pared fur any terms we could accept. Germany will be beaten but the Ger man people don t know it yet. The government has forced on them false hoods and refuses to accept terms which would recognize its own failure. "Thirdly, peace now on Germany's terms would not be permanent but a mere truce. "Lastly, we are fighting for great principles, vital to the future of man kind which Germany has outraged and which must be vindicated. We do not hate the German people. We do not desire to destroy their national union nor inflict permanent injury upon them, buk we do desire to exorcise the evil spirit and discredit the military caste delighting in war and threaten ing all countries, America included. Nothing but defeat can destroy its spirit and deliver the Germal people from the yoke. Deliverance of Bclirlum and France. "What Great Britain wants is secur ity for herself and her dominions, the deliverance of Belgium and North France, such changes in the east as to make it impossible for the Turks ever again to massacre Christian sub jects or become vassals or tools of Germany in her projected eastward advance. "The allies are bound and resolved to prosecute this war until victory is won for principles and peace estab lished on the sure foundations of jus tice and freedom." GOL.

All Factions To Be Cemented by Election This Fall. Nomination of Charles Evans Hughes for the presidency will cement all the factions which have caused trouble in the Republican ranks in Kansas in the last eight years. That was the prediction in Topeka today of Walter L. Payne of Burlingame, can didate for the Republican nomination for state treasurer. . Since the Republican national con vention, Payne has visited more than thirty counties In the central and western portions of the state. In all of these counties he found a definite movement toward a reunion of the old crowds with Hughes as the national leader. Except in a few extreme cases, Payne believes the former cupporters of the third party will return to the Republican party. There is no dis cord, he declares, concerning the sup port of the old line Republicans. "Conditions which are now shaping themselves in Kansas will insure Hughes this state by 100,000 majority in November," declared Payne, who came to Topeka today to speak before members of the First Ward Republi can club. "There is a general move ment in every county I have visited since the national convention to get together under the Hughes banner. I believe it means the reuniting of the factions which have occasioned more or less trouble In the party in the last eight years. Sees 100.000 Plurality. "Kansas will give the Republican party a J 00,000 vote lead in my judg ment of conditions. That means the election of the entire state ticket by an overwhelming majority, the-winning back of the lost congressional dis tricts and control of both tranches of the state legislature. "Except in rare and- extreme In stances, theje is a state-wide tendency to get together on Hughes. Out through the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh districts, as well us in the Fourth, my home district, I have found conditions much the same. The voters desire a change. They are tired of Wilson's weak, wobbly, vacillating policies. Hundreds of Democratic will also sup port Hughes, in my Judgment, and many of these men and women will also support the Republican state and congressional tickets." Payne came to Topeka today from Alma, where he delivered a Fourth of July speech.. He has visited two thirds of the counties in the state in the present campaign and expressed confidence concerning his success in the August primaries. Payne was as sistant during the administration of the late Mark Tulley and was for sev eral years president of the Kartas Day club, the official Republican or ganization of the state.

The Second infantry regiment, Missouri National Guard, started loading its equipment early this morning, after having struck camp preparatory for departure for the border . late today. Railroad of ficials have promised the sleeping cars for the men would be set at 4 o'clock and it is expected the two sec tions of the regiment will leave Camp Clark within two hours after that time. The Second regiment is recruited from Southern Missouri and many of its members count the Ozark moun tains as their home. Consequently, camp officers did not consider it un usual when the regimental band struck up, "You Gotta Quit Kicking My Dawg Around" at reveille this morn ing, in token of their jubilation at prospects of being on their way to Texas before the day was out.

IN WEST MEXICO Americans Are Compelled to Flee for Their Lires. Many Refugees Arrive at San Diego Without a Cent. San Diego. Cal., July 5. W. A. Holton. of St. Louis, . an employe of the United Sugar company of Los Mochis, Mexico, who arrived here last night on the naval transport Buffalo, with 638 other American and British refugees from West Mexican towns and ranches, said today that he was one of a party of eleven Americans who were held recently by Carranza soldiers near that town. Money, arrrjs and ammunition were taken from them and they were told to get out of Mexico as quickly as possible. Twenty-three Americans were left at Los Mochis guarding the big sugar refinery there and they have been given word by Carranza officials that they will not be nolested within twenty-four hours after a declaration of war between the United States and Mexico, Holton said. Men Heavily Armed. The men were heavily armed. More than 15,000 gallons of alcohol are stored in the tanks adjacent to the sugar refinery and every effort is be ing made to ship this out of the coun try. The sugar cane crop this year is exceedingly large and as approximate ly 3 2,000 Mexicans around Los Mochis depend upon the operation of the re fineries for a living the Carranza "au thorities do not care to stop the mills unless ordered by the first chief, ac cording to Holton. Mrs E. E. Watson, aged E, of New York City, told a story of how. riding in a caboose attached to a Mexican Southern Pacific pay rrain. carrying more than $145,000 in gold, she es caped possible harm from bandits in a wild ride from Ortiz to Empalme. She said she no sooner had reached Empalme when news came that Car ranze soldiers had seized the railwaj throughout northern Mexico. Expect More Refusees. More refugees will p.rrivo here from Salina Cruz and Manzanillo on the supply steamer Glacier early nei;t week. Many of the refugees landed here by the Buffalo are penniless and they were being cared for today by the San Diego chapter of the Red C'rosa. All exp"-t to return to their former homes In this country as soon as they can communicate with friends or relatives. the Endurance, left South Georgia on January 10. In his farewell message, cabled late in October from Buenos Ayres. and when the. Endurance sailed from that port for the Antarctic region. Sir Er nest made known that on arrival at South Georgia, the geologists of the staff would be landed to do scientific work, while the ship proceeded south to examine the pack ice and see if it was loose enough to go into without unnecessary delay. After examining the pack the En durance was to return to South Geor gia, pick up the members of the ex pedition and the dogs, then coal to her fullest capacity and sail south again, pushing right into the pack, keeping as much to the east as possible In the hope of meeting more open water than probably could be found further west. Shackleton added that Judging from all reports he gathered tht It Mas a very heavy ice season in tT.e Weddeli sea. Apparently that has pi wed to be the case. The Endurance is equipped with a powerful wireless receiver, with which to receive messages from the Marconi station in South Amerra, but it can not transmit any. WILSON TALKS TO N.E.A. Tells Educators to Eliminate Useless and Technical Grammar. New York, July 5. H. B. Wilson, superintendent of schools of Topeka. Kan., spoke before the National Edu cation association at Madison Square Garden this morning on "The Need of More Reality in the Teaching of English' Composition and Grammar." "Eliminate useless and technical grammar," was the plea Wilson made. "There is no greater waste in the schoolroom than the greater part of the study of grammar," he asserted. "Cut out the technical grammar and teach the children good usage from the mistakes in language they hear on the playground. Teach them good usage from the language they hear in the schof aom." It is likely the N. E. A. will pass resolutions favoring the elimination of the merely technical and abstract in the teaching of English composition and grammar.
