America will see the Victory Liberty Loan through, returns last night indi catcd. In the New York Federal Reserve District an oversubscription is a prac tical certainty, according to Arthur M. Anderson, director of the government loan organization here. Without in cluding returns for the last two days, thc St. Louis district iast night al? ready had passed its quota, and the Minneapolis district unofficially notified the Secretary of the Treasury that it had attained its goal. A gain for the nation of $496,309,000 for the sixteenth day, announced last night, was the largest of the campaign, aand brought the official total for the entire country up to 13,314,870,000, re vealing a gap of nearly $1,200,000,000 to be taken care of by subscriptions filed yesterday and to-day. Official op timism regarding the outcome was based on the assumption of a tremen dous spurt to-day before the final pop ular finar.cial drive of the war closes. Small Bnyers Sure of Notes Subscriptions flowing to loan head quarters in a tremendous swell brought the feeling of victory to loan workers, who to-day will drive hard to get the widest possible distribution of the new gold notes of the United States. Under a ruling of Secretary Glass, in the event of an oversubscription, a'.l buyers of $10,000 or less of Victory notes will be allotted the full amount, and the deliveries to the large buyers will be ?pared off. After the statistics showing that the country as a whoie in the first sixteen of the eighteen business days of the campaign had filled 73.68 per cent of its quota of $4,500,000,000 and that the New York Federal Reserve District had in the same period subscribed ?1,204, 375,250, Mr. Anderson said that the Second District, including untabulated tubscriptions, had gone over the top. Oversubscription Indicated "The figures at the closc of to-day, ?omething over $1,200,000,000," Mr. Anderson :-;aid, "indlcate the practical certainty that the loan will be over subscribed in the 2d Federal Reserve District. Reports from the districts e of New York City indicatc that the expectation is that each one will .'each its quota. This will mean close '.o ? 150,000,000, in addition to the vol virr.e of .-.ubscriptionH which is in proc ';S* of being recorded at the banks or in tranxmission, apart from the sub? scriptions which we have fair reason to ' xpect will be taken to-night and to the close at midnijjht Saturday.

Legion Rejects Chicago; Mayor Hotly Rebuked Minneapolis Chosen for Next Convention as A11 a c k on Thompson's Record Forces Windy City Out Staff Corfespondence ST. L0U1S, May 9.?The American ! Legion at its second session here to | day administered a rebuke to Mayor ! William Hale Thompson of Chicago by turning down the invitation of Chicago to meet there in November. Colonel John F. J. Herbert, com? mander of the 102d Field Artillery of ! the 26th (Yankee) Division, said that j by the election of Mayor Thompson I Chicago had reached the standard of j the most despised city in the nation, |and that until it had regained 100 per | cent Americani8m the American Legion ! could not go there with self-respect. The convention also refused to seat Sergeant Curtis, of Seattle, represent ing the Soldiers' and? Sailors' Council of Washington, on the ground that his organization was inimical to the United. States. The attack on Mayor Thompson came when, in reporting the place for hold ing the convention in November, the chairman said the committee on selec tion was unanimous in favor of Chi? cago. Rebukes Mayor Thompson Colonel Herbert, of Massachusetts, formerly managing editor of "The Worcester Evening Post," took the floor and said: "As spokesman for the Massachu | setts delegation, I want to say that if ! no other body wants to rebuke any j city or its representative for un-Ameri ! canism when the soldiers of that city i were offering their lives in defence of the word, then Massachusetts stands ready to offer that rebuke. Massachu? setts* will not agree willingly to having a convention of soldiers go to a city t that has as its first citizen by vote, one j who cannot measure up in any small i part when the test is 100 per cent j Americanism. "The hall has been placarde'd with ' invitations, 'The American Legion, Chi : cago wants you in November.' If these placards read, 'American Legion, Chi ; cago soldiers want you in .November,' ; our answer might be different. The j answer of Massachusetts would be dif i ferr-nt. But when your placard roads, ! 'Chicago wants you in November,' the ! answer of Massachusetts is, 'Chicago j cannot have us in November*- or any ; other time until Chicago has an Ameri ! can for Mayor in an American city. Causes Near Riot "The literature circulated through J the convention reads: 'Chicago pledges I itself to go any other city one better [ on anything this convention requires.' i This convention first requires that Chi ; cago shall reach a standard different from the standard of being the most ? despised city in America, and when it i has reached that standard, it is then in a position to say whether it can go one better. It has not yet reached par. Until Chicago reaches par, Massachu I Betta votes, 'No.' " This declaration caused a near riot ' Large barmers booming Chicago as the next convention city wojy torn from \ the walls and boxes, and for ten min? utes it was pandemoniurn. Major John P.

Two Bribery Charges Shot At Whitman Ex-Governor Denies He Offered Official Favor in Trade for Vote for Perkins's Gonfirmation Senator Cotillo Says Orr Did It INames Secretary as Man Who Dickered With Him: Witness Grilled Former Governor Whitman was asked yesterday if he had partici pated in an attempt to bribe two mem? bers of the State Senate to vote for the confirmation of George W. Perkins as State Food Commissioner during the special session of the Legislature in 1917. In one case money was alleged to bo the consideration. In the other the price for a Senator's vote was said to be the restoration to citi zenship of a man who had been con victed of a felony. The former Governo. indignantly denied the implied charges. Intense anger was shown, both on his face and in his words and voice as his one-time Assistant District Attorney, Frank Moss, hurled question after question at him with pitiless persistency in the Al dermanic Chamber at City Hail. i. Big Crowd at Bearing The room was. ttirongefl with politi cians and street railway men long be? fore the hearing by the Senate Judi j ciary Committee, which is investigat ! ing the $500,000 slush fund charges made by Senator George F. Thompson, of Niagara, wa3 begun. It was a day that Moss had looked ; forward to. He had been Whitman's ! first assistant during the former Gov | ernor's incumbency as District At i torney, and had been his chief col ? laborator in the prosecution of Lieu i tenant Becker and the four gunmen i who murdered tho gambler Rosenthal. At the next gubernatorial election Whitman was elected Governor, and i Moss expected to be appointed by him as his successor. When another was ', named there was a break. Moss forced Mr. Whitman to admit that he Was under retainer by the : Interborough and conferred with The i odore P. Shonts, president of that . company, and with James L. Quack l enbush, its chief counsel, before he . talked with Senator Thompson in the ^Hotel St. Regis, on March 29. It was on that occasion that Senator Thompson charges that the former . Governor tried to induce him to sup i port the Carson-Martin increased fare I bill, holding out to him the promise of powerful support for the Governorship I in 1920. Moss brought out the fact that last | year, while Whitman was Governor, he 1 had opposed a similar measure, but the former Governor stuck fast to his story i that he did not double-cross the street railway men on that occasion. The two Senators alleged to have , been improperly approached during the fight to confirm Mr. Perkins, who was a heavy contributor to Governor Whit | man's campaigns, were N. Monroe I Marshall, of Malone, and Salvatore Co ' tillo, of New York. Senator Cotillo, who is a member of i thc committee, took the stand after his ' name had been mentioned and said that it was not the Governor who asked him to vote for Perkins, but his secretary, | William A. Orr. One of the spectators who sat drink ing in every word of the testimony was j Rlchnrd II. Durke, the seller of street car supplies, who, Thompson charged, had told him thnt if he would support tho Carson-Martin bill he would be i furnished with a campaign fund of | $500,000. Whitman Wants Counsel "Governor Whitman," began Mr. | Moss, "I want to dirnct your atten I tion to the Pratt bill of 1918, de j oigned to obtaln somo relief for the I Interborough and other railroads in j New York City: Did you take a posi tion in favor of it?" "Now, Mr. Chairman," said Mr1. Whitman, rising from tho wltnoss ehair, "b<rfore I anewor I want to re? serve tho righte of all the wltnesaen and protect them; and 1 understami that the committee will extond the same privllcgo to any witnesa of re talnlng counsel." i "Not to any witneas, Governor," eaid | Chairman Burllngame.

The United States naval hydro-airplanes NC-1 and NO-3 will start to-morrow morning at 8 o'clock for Trepassey, X. F? the jumping off place for their trans? atlantic flight, if the weather is favor able. The aviators said to-night that tests made after some of the pro pellers on both 'planes had been changed showed both to be in perfcct readiness for a resumption of their journey. Word of the postponement of the start was forwarded to the Navy De- \ partment in Washington by tho sup- , ply ship Baltimore at Halifax. The j message from the Baltimore said: " 'Planes will not start from Hali fax to-day because of renewal of four | propellers. Will be ready to t 'start Saturday morning." Trial Spins Taken I After the c-ngines had been over j hauled, the propellers replaced and : ! the fuel tanks reiilled, the 'planes were taken down the bay for trial spins j this evening. , The roaring of the engines ns the | two 'planes shot into the air for their tests nfter dark brought thousands of residents to tho waterfront. As the airmen had all theix lights in opera tion. there was a brilliant spectacle as the 'planes left their moorings in the harbor and circled over tho city. The moon was bright, there was a gentle breeze and the water was calm. When the test was ended the ma chinea swooped down into the harbor; again with ease. It was nearly 10 j o'clock when the airmen left the 'planes and went to the mine-layer Baltimore. to spend the night. Naval vessels- which will be sta- I tioned along the route of to-morrow's j journey began moving into their as- ; ! signed places to-day.

Wilson to Ask Senate Pledge Aid to France WTASHINGTON. May 9.?In re *' sponse to an inquiry from Sec? retary Tumulty regarding the pro posed pledge to help defend France, President Wilson cabled to-day: "Happily, there is no mystery or privacy about what I have promised the government here. I have prom? ised to propose to the Senate a sup plement in which we shall agree, eubject to the approval of the coun? cil of the league of nations, to come immediately to the assistance of France in case of unprovoked attack by Germany, thus merely hastening the action to which we should be bound by the covenant of the league of nations." English Mutiny Plot Is Found Leaders Sought to Com pel Force in Quelling Uprising, Says Londor LONDON, May 9.?A aonspiracy to induce British sailors to mutiny and soldiers to demobilize themselves by marchiiig out of their barracks has been discovered, according to the "Daily Mail," The premises of vari? ous persons have been searched and documents s.eized. The stations involved, the new6 paper says, include four in France and several in England, while the sailors in naval ports have been circularized with a view to inciting them to seize the ports and invite the soldiers and police to join them. The object of the plot is stated to be to compel the government to use force if the projected disorders should oocur, the organizers believing that I this would prccipitate anarchy. The first sign of discontent in the j British forces was seen early in Janu I ary, when demonstrations of a charac | ter bordering on mutiny occurred at Dover and Folkestone among troops who had been in England on leave and who objected to being sent back to Frnnce, Germany and the Balkans. On January 8 there were demonstrations ,' of a similar character in front of the j Wnr Office in London and in some of I the country camps.

The German National Assembly has been called to meet in Berlin on Mon ! day, May 12. The peace committee of the As , sembly at a meeting Thursday dis? cussed the peac& terms. President . Fehrenbach of the Assembly declared i that the terms presented to Germany ; were more drastic than the most , pessimistic forecasts had indicated ; and that the provisions meant the per ; petual enslavement of the German j people. He declared the treaty was dictated by hate. The committee adjourned after ap proving the announced intention of the j government to obtain "an acceptable j peace" by negotiation. Observers at Versailles, according i to a dispatch from there, anticipate i that verbal discussion of some parts ! of the treaty may be pcrmitted, ai !though the announced decision of the Inter-Allied Peace Comission has been p.gainst such procedure.

Imperial Ministry Urges All Stated to Plaee Ban on Public Amusement People Demand PaetBeRejeeted Berlin and Hamburg Exchanges Closed; Loan Bonds Drop BERLIN, May 9 (By The Associated Press).?The president of the Imperial Ministry has sent the following tele? gram to the governments of the free states: "In deep dlstress and weighed down by cares. the German people have waited through the months of the armistice for the peace condU tions. Their publication has brought the bitterest disappoint ment and unspeakabie grief to the entire people. A public expression > ought to be given these feelings by all Germans. The imperial govern? ment requests that the free states have public amusements suspended for a week and allow in the theatres only such productions as correspond to the seriousness of these griev ous days." The people, though fairly stricken dumb by the peace terms, are now re covering sufficiently to declare that Germa'by can not and will not sign the compact, no matter what comes. Strikes Are Increasing Strikes are increasing, and Bolshe vism and the Spartacan uprisings of the last two months have, if anything, made Germany immune to the possible horrors which are to be anticipated if they are again plunged into war, ac-fc cording to the best opinion here. There exists a small group of Ger? mans, chiefly conservatives, who pre fer to see the Entente occupy the 1 whole country than to have it Bolshe vik, but they are in the dwindling minority. Reports from the Versailles corre spondents emphasize the feeling of . amazement and excitement which pre . vailed on the reading of the terms of i the peace treaty. All the correspond I ents agree that no hasty decision will ; be reached. A fortnight is allowed the ! Germans for the return of an answer, ' and this time will be used for carefui | consideratien of the demands and the ? preparation of counter suggestions, jthe correspondents say. j Death To Germany, Says Scheidemana After a five-hour session of the Ger , man Cabinet Thursday, Philipp Schei ; demann, the Chancellor, delivcred h i speech to the committee appointed to iconsider the treaty. After comparing ! the most important conditions laid 'down by the Allies in connection with .President Wilson's fourteen points, j Scheidemann is reportad to have said: "These conditions are nothing else j than death for Germany, but the gov I ernment must discuss this document of ! hatred and madness with sobriety." The Chancellor indicated that the j German delegation at Versailles had | been instructed to hand avjaote to the 'Allies showing the difference between | the treaty terms and President Wil? son's fourteen points and submif j counter-proposals and endeavor to j start ar, orai discussion. He expressed ! the hope that the peace conditions : would be considered with good-will j by both parties and that a satisfac |tory result would be reached. There is much speculation in Berlin i as to whethcr the terrns represent maximum demands wh;ch may be re | duced or whether they are minimum ! and irreducible. Counter Proposals Prepared According to the "Berlin Zeitung am ; Mittag," the delegation at Versailles [wiU carefully avoid any bargaining. , but wi'T present definite, clcar-cui ; counter propositions, which, in part, have a!ready been prepared. "These counter proposals," the news paper declares editorially, "will be . bascd on the fourteen points so ds* jgraccful'.y abandoned by Fresident W ikon. If the Gerir n.n people had to vote on these terms as a wholr. there would not be in the whole em? pire a single 'yes.' Force without mcasure or limit usrd to be a Wilson phrasf, and the Wilson peace offered us yesterday falls in this category, instc.ad of on his fourteen points." Members of the Bourse reached the lexcbange yesterday without knowing J that the exchnnge committee had r?
