Former American Secret Agent Says Germans Had Army of 45,000 Ready to Cross Border Black Toni Blast Charged to Berlin Dr. P. B. Altendorf Tells How He Spoiled Plans of Enemy in Sonora A story of aid furnished by Mexico to Germany during the war, and of the plans prepared south of the Rio Grande (or an invasion of the United States by a German-Mexican force, was told yes? terday by Dr. P. B. Altendorf, formerly of the Army Intelligence and a secret ?gent of the government in Mexico from July, 1917, to April, 1919. Dr. Altendorf charges that Germans to Mexico had prepared a plan to strike at the border states with a force of 45,000 men in concert with Lodendorf's final drive in France. He also asserts that the Black Tom explo? sion was the outcome of a German Mejican plot and says that he himself turned over to American authorities a spy known as Lathar Witcke, alias Pablo Wabir8ki, who boasted that he had caused the explosion. Sentence of death imposed on Wablr sV:;. is now being reviewed by President Wilson, Dr. Altendorf says. He also teils of an alleged plot to assassinate James W. Gerard while he was in Cuba, and insists that while Germany, by the peace treaty, is forbi?den to make mere than a certain amount of monitions of war, great munition fac? tories backed by German capital will be started in ?.lexico. Trusted by Germans In all he was concerned, he says, as a trusted agent of the German Ambas? sador, von Eckhardt, who made him a German army captain, and by Car? ranca, who commissioned him a colonel. Many Mexican orticials are still on the German payroll, he asserted, and the still active German purpose to con? trol Latin America is behind the deter? mined efforts of Carranza to take oil properties from their present American and British owners. Dr. Altendorf's story was made pub? lic through the National Association for the 1'rotection of American Rights in Mexico, with the statement that his claims had been investigated and that he had been highly commended for trustworthiness by General Marlbor ough Churchill, chief of the Army In? telligence Service. Other acc3 for which Dr. Altendorf claims credit include: Discovery of two German wireless stations in Mexico capable of receiving messages from Germany; reporting the plan for the German submarine raid along the American coast in April, 1918, one month before it actually took place; re? porting agents sent by Germans in Mexico to poison cattle in the United States, and tho revelation of a plot by four Germans to blow up the hydro? electric plant at Niagara Falls. Big Cement Plant Proposed Calling attention to German com? mercial plans in Mexico, Dr. Altendorf ?eport3 that "the first attempt to carry out an ambitious German schome for the economic conquest and ultimate military domination of Mexico was a plan originated by the German Consul, Rademacher, at Guaymas, with the active aid of Governor Calles, to build a cement plant, with a capacity of ?0,000 bags a month, at Hermosillo, Sonora. "The foundations were completed," he add?, "and materials for the super Structure were on the ground in July, ?817, when 1 reported the scheme in time to stop it, and the factory had j? be abandoned until after the peace treatj had bovn signed. This factory was to furnish the cement for re? building piers and other structures and building new ones on the west coast." Dr. Altendorf states that he, per? sonally, late in November, 1917, car fled a request from Governor Calles of sonora to Rademacher for $150,000, saw th m?"1'" Pu* ln :l bag and carried the bag, accompanied by Rademacher, to Callo:,.

Thus there is no practical dif culty in the way of Germany's plans l01' the next war.

Pershing Arrives Here Sept. 5 or 6 War Department Says He Will Leave Brest Sept, 1 on Leviathan New York Tribun? Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Aug. 23.?The ar? rival of General Pershing in New York was advanced somewhat to-day when the War Department was advised that the overseas commander-in-chief will sail on the Leviathan, leaving Brest September 1. This monster troop transport, the fastest in the army ser? vice, is expected to roach New York by September 5 or September 6 at the latest. General Pershing changed to the Le? viathan from tho Mount Vcrnon be? cause of the delayed arrival of the lat? ter vessel at Brest. The advanced date of General Per shing'a arrival was welcomed by War Department officials, who believe it will be more convenient for President Wil? son to be in the welcoming party on Soptember 6 than any later date, in view of the President'3 contemplated swing around the circle. Cavell Informer Cites Kaiser as His Witness Man Accused of Betraying' Nurse to Enemy Seeks Post ponment of Trial PARIS, Aug. 23.?Georges Gaston Quien, charged with having intelli? gence with the enemy, and alleged in? formant against Edith Cavell, will ap? pear before the sixth court-martial of Paris Monday. The prosecution claims that it will prove that, after obtain? ing funds and help from the English nurse, Quien went to Holland and re- | turned to Brussels as a German agent j and betrayed her to tho German com- i mandant. Fifty-eight witnesses are listed by the prosecution, among them Brand Whitlock, the former American Min? ister to Belgium. M. D'Armon, attor? ney for the defence, will ask for an indefinite postponement until such timo "as the Kaiser and other parties primarily responsible for the death of Miss Cavell are brought before an in? ternational tribunal." -? Boston Is Organizing Non-Union Police Force To Be Called to Service Only in Case of Strike of Regu? lar Patrolmen BOSTON, Aug. 23.- Organization of a volunteer police force for service in the event of a strike by the policemen of this city, in connection with the re? fusal of Commissioner Curtis to recog? nize their union, was announced by the commissioner to-day. The emergency police will be re? cruited from former members of the force, applicants for regular positions and from citizens generally. Former Superintendent William H. Pierce will be in charge of tho organization. Patrolman Mclnnis, president of the union, who returned to his beat re? cently after service as an army cap? tain, conferred with counsel to-day. He declined any talk of a strike at this time was unwarranted and said any action that might be taken would be on udvice of counsel. -? High Prices Lessen Tips And Waiters Strike Men in Medium Priced Restau? rants of Harlem, East Side and Bronx Want 820 Week Waiters in 000 medium-price restau? rants on the East Side and in Harlem and The Bronx went on strike at 5 p. m. yesterday, demanding $20 a week instead of $15. They have a ten-hour day and wollt six clays a week. Sev? eral employers settled at once, it was said by union men; others assumed the r?le of waiters themselves Five or six waiters aro employed at each restau? rant. Members of the New York Restau? rant Keepers' Association refused to grant the demands, saying that the union was party to a wage agreement which did not expire until January 1 and, in some cases, until June, 1920. The waiters said that the raising of food prices by the restaurant proprie? tors since the agreement was entereel into changed eonditionas so as virtual? ly to nullify the bargain. The higher food prices, they said, resulted in smaller tips and made a waiter's ex? istence precarious. -? British Troops Arrested ; Refused to Go to France LONDON, Aug. 23.?Three hundred soldiers belonging to Warwick, Berk? shire and Gloucester regiments were arrested to-day at Southampton for re? fusing to obey orders to embark fojr France. The ringleaders were driven away in motor lorries. The soldiers, who had been on leave, are for the most part veterans. They objected to embarking because they had heard they would he sent to the B'a-;k Sea after their arrival in France, whereas they had received promises that no one would be sent to Russia unless ho volunteered. The men are quartered in a public park. Perfect order prevailed. A War Office statement says that i the men were being sent to Turkey, not to Russia. Stage Strike Closes Two More Houses Lights Go Out in Liberty and Casino When the Mechanicians Quit; Only Five Left Open Cohan Is Head of New Actors' League Announces Withdrawal From Producers; Offer of $100,000 Refused The actors' strike closed two more theatres in the city last night, and left the Croat White Way with only a glim? mer of its former brightness. The Lib? erty, where "The Scandals of 1919" was playing, and the Casino, housing Lew Fields's "A Lonely Romeo," went dark when the stagehands walked out and joined their bretnren who are on a sympathetic strike. Only five of the big playhouses re? main open. These are the Fulton, where "John Ferguson" is being given by actors with Equity contracts; the Winter Garden, where the chorus of "Monte Cristo, Jr.," is alternating with vaudeville; the Greenwich Village, with "Greenwich Village Follies"; the Playhouse, with "At 9:45," and the Hippodrome, "Happy Days." This last opened last night. Al? though its manager, Charles Dilling h?m, is a member of the Producing Managers' Association, the production, which plays twelve times a week, # re? garded as a vaudeville show and its actors were not called out. Cohan Heads New League George M. Cohan was unanimously elected president yesterday of the new? ly formed Actors' Fidelity League, which is intended to rival the Actors' Equity Association and as far as pos? sible draw from its membership. No less than seven actors endeavored to out-yell one another for the distinc? tion of nominating Mr. Cohan at the meeting held at the Hotel Biltmore. It had been previously announced that tho executive committee had declined Mr. Cohan's offer to iinance the new organization with $100,000. At the conclusion of the meeting it vtas an? nounced that in two days 733 actors had applied for membership. When Mr. Cohan, who did not attende the meeting, learned that he had been elected, he said he would not accept until he had reigned from the Produc? ing Managers' Association. Withholds His Acceptance "I'm not going to try to carry water on both shoulders," he said. "I can't accept this until I have resigned from the managers' organization and 1 can't do that until there is a full meeting. I believe there will be a quorum at the meeting of managers to be held Mon? day afternoon. I'll offer my resigna? tion then. If the Actors' Fidelity League thinks I ought to withdraw from the firm of Cohan & Harris I'll do that. If they think I ought to I'll never act again; never produce a show or shake a foot.'' The esrlier part of the Biltmore meeting was not so unanimous as the finish. When there was some indica? tion that members of the Actors' Equity Association were in the room, Louis Mann, who presided, requested that all who were not in sympathy with the new knovement leave the room. About a dozen men started toward the door. One of them shouted ; "Three cheers for the Equity." The cheers were given by the dozen, but from other parts of tho room came hisses. This caused the departing actors to halt in their tracks. One of them turned and shouted: "Yes, we're Equity actors and Equity wants actors, but it doesn't want scabs. Good night." Veteran Speaks His Mind Richard O'Brien, one of those depart? ing from the meeting, stopped long enough to say: '1 served in the A. E. F. and now I'm serving in the A. E. A. I'm proud of both. I'll tell you this much, though: When Mr. Sothern came to the Equity meetings he was given courteous treatment." Here Louis Mann broke in with a plea to the gathering for respectful treatment for those who were leaving at his suggestion. This served to si? lence them, until Marguerite St. John broke in with : "My son served in the A. E. F., too, but 1 see no reason why military ser? vice should be used for personal adver? tisement." This started Mr. O'Brien anew, but a companion soothed him with a pat on the back, and the Equity delegation, or most of it, departed. Then one or two others, men and women, asked Mr. Mann if they might stay. They said they were members .of the Equity, but wished to hear the issues discussed so that they might decide whether they wished to affiliate with the Actors' Fidelity League. These were told to remain. Jit was announced that headquarters or the new organization had been es? tablished next to the Henry Miller Theatre in 122 West Forty-third Street. Want Contracts Upheld Then Howard Kyle, who helped found the Actors' Equity Association more than six years ago and resigned re? cently because he was opposed to the strike, road the constitution of the Actors' Fidelity League. One of the Continued on&age seven All McAdoo Family Rode On Passes Hines Shows Former Di? rector General of Rail? roads Had Free Rides on All Roads in Country 1,590 Relatives On All Roads List 808 of These Are Wives and 4 Are Mothers-in Law, the Report Shows New York Trtftwn? Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Aug. 23.?-Among the interesting disclosures in the report to ; the Senate on railroad passes by Di | rector General of Railroads Hines is ! that William Gibbs McAdoo, who an ! nounced when he took over the rail 1 roads that he intended to reduce ma ; terially the number of passes, not only j had a pass himself but that three members of his family also had them. Perhaps even more interesting, he still retains a Pullman pass and so do the members of his family. Mr. Mc? Adoo ?k described in the report as ex? plaining that he has a pass as "special ! counsel for the State of New York." i The members of his family who have i passes are Mrs. McAdoo, President ; Wilson's daughter; Robert II. McAdoo, J Mr. Me.Adoo's son, and Miss S. McAdoo, i a daughter. Inquiry into the number of passes j was made by Senator Trueman II. New berry, of Michigan ? who defeated Henry Ford?after he noticed ft travel I ing companion the other day with a pass good over all railroads in the states. He found it numbered higher than 10.000, so on his return to Wash j ington he cut in a resolution, which the Senate adopted, calling for the number of passes granted to officials and their families. The figures do not include passes to workers other than officials, and do not include trip passes. Senators Are Astonished Senators were astonished to-day at the result, it having been thought that the government control would have the effect, as promised by Mr. McAdoo, of greatly curtailing the number of passes, especially to members of fami? lies of officials. There were 1,590 wives, daughters, sons, other relatives and near relatives of railroad officials travelling on all-line annual railroad passes during the last year of government operation of the roads. And there were 1,096 wives, daughters, sons, other relatives and near relatives of these officials who enjoyed the added privilege of all-line annual Pullman passes. How this record compares with condi? tions under private, operation of the roads cannot be stated, for the reason that the record has never before been public. Attached to the main report, which is brief, is a complete list of the names, addresses and tatu of relationship to officials of all holding passes, in addi? tion to the names, addresses and posi? tions of officials themselves enjoying the privilege. The Family Pass List It was from this list that the follow? ing classification of the passholdiug relatives, etc., was obtained: Uni I roa ft Pullman passe?, passes, Relationship. all lines, airlines.

"As previously reported, 2,418 all-line Pullman passes have been issued by the railroad administration during Federal control, as of July 1, 1919, of which 515 have been cancelled, leav? ing 1,903 outstanding on July 1, 1919. As corrected, 4,200 all-line railroad passes have been issued by the rail j road administration during the period of Federal control up to July 1, 1919, ? of which 119 have been cancelled, leav ! ing 4,081 outstanding on July 1, 1919." -* Police Arrest Three; Find $41,000 in Bonds Only 84,000 of Total Stolen From Simpson and Slade Are Still Missing Detectives Meyer and Brown yester? day wired the Police Department that they were in Saranac Lake, N. Y., with three prisoners charged with the theft of $45,000 worth of Liberty bonds from Simpson & Slade, of 5 Nassau Street. The detectives said they had recovered $41,000 worth of the bonds, which were stolen on August 12. The names of the persons arrested were refused at Headquarters yester? day, but dispatches from Saranac Lake say that Harry J. Millham, formerly | messenger for Simpson & Slade, was ar 1 rested and his companion, Arthur Kller, taken into custody as a witness. Jazzing the Professor's Grand Opera Composition (Copyright, 1019, \ew York Tribuno Inc.) Text of the Shantung Section us Amended rpHE text of Section VIII of the treaty of peace with Germany, dealing with the Shantung province of China, which tvas amended by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday by the substitution of "China" wherever "Japan" ap? peared in the document, follows in full, with the substituted name in black letters: SHANTUNG Article 156 Germany renounces in favor of CHINA all her rights, title and privileges?particularly those con? cerning the territory of Kiao-chau, railways, mines and submarine cables?which she acquired in vir? tue of the treaty concluded by her with China on March G, 1898, and of all other arrangements relative; to the province of Shantung. All German rights in the Tsingtao-Tsinanfu Railway, including its branch lines, together with its subsidiary property of all kinds, stations, shops, fixed and rolling stock, mines, plant and material, for the exploitation of the mines, are and remain acquired by CHINA, together with all rights and privileges attaching thereto. The German state submarine cables from Tsing tau to Shanghai and from Tsingtao to Chefoo, with all the rights, privileges and properties attached thereto, are similarly acquired by CHINA, free and clear of all charges and incumbrances. Article 157 The movable and immovable property owned by the German state in all territory of Kiao-chau, as well as all the rights which Germany might claim in consequence of the works or improve? ments made, or of the expenses incurred by her, directly or indirectly, in connection with this ter? ritory, are and remain acquired by CHINA, free and clear of all charges and incumbrances. Article 158 Germany shall hand over to CHINA within three months from the coming into force of the present treaty the archives, registers, plans, title deeds and documents of every kind, wherever they may be, relating to the administration, whether civil, military, financial, judicial or other, of the teritory of Kiao-chau. Within the same period Germany shall give particulars to CHINA of all treaties, arrange? ments or agreements relating to the right, title or privileges referred to in fhe two preceding articles. Plumb Plan on 2-Man Ticket Nominated With Curtis for Head of Aldermanic Board and Delahunty for Sheriff The New York branch of the Ameri? can Labor party, at its convention in i Yorkville Casino, Eighty-sixth Sfreet and Third Avenue, yesterday, entered ! actively the political arena of the state j and city by nominating candidates for J President of the Board of Aldermen and Sheriff. Nearly 300 delegates, rep I resenting 350.000 organized workers in this city and vicinity, attended the convention. The convention also adopted a resolution urging the appli? cation of the Plumb plan, advocated by four railway brotherhoods, as a solution of the nation's railway prob? lem, to the transportation problem of the City of New York. The convention was marked by great enthusiasm. Members repc-atedlj cheered the speeches of leaders who urged that organized labor get together into a party of its own and "cut loose from the two old political parties.' The decision to enter the present cam? paign, however, was taken after long debate, in which a number of speakers representing a minority advised the Continued on page six I German Towns Menaced By Spartacan Revolts BERLIN, Aug. 23.?Spartacan out? breaks have occurred in several large towns, according to reports received here.

Out of League _ Senator Knox Asks For Other Pacts Textual Revision Likely to "Call Japan's Bluff," Some Statesmen Thint? Kew York Tribun* W<vk'npton Bureau WASHINGTON, Aug. 23.?The Sen? ate Foreign Relations Committee to? day, by a vote of 9 to 8 defied Presi? dent Wilson's often repeated insistence that the peace treaty be ratified with? out reservation or amendment, and by a direct textual change proposed that the German concessions in Shantung should be restored to China instead of being given to Japan. In amending the treaty the commitr tee, on motion of Senator Lodge, moved to strike out the word "Japan" wherever it occurred in the. section relating to Shantung and to insert in stead the word "China." The effect of the action would be to refuse recogni? tion of Japan's claims to German rights in Kiao-chau and vicinity, as established by secret agreements with ( h:na and the Entente. Later the committee voted to call on the President for more information about the several treaties, in order that it might proceed intelligently with its work. Senators voting for the amendment were Ledge, Borah, Brandegee, Fall, Knox, Harding, Hiram Johnson, New and Moses. Those voting against were MeCum ber, Hitchcock, Williams, Swanson. Pomerene, Mark Smith, Pittman and Shields. Opening of War on Treaty The Shantung vote "was a declara? tion of war on the treaty," declared Senator Swanson. Although deprecating the possibility of the Senate approving the commit? tee's action, Senator Swanson said that if it did the result, would be to send the treaty back for approval to the four principal powers, Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan. As the first three are bound to Japan by secret treaties, he declared, all four will reject thit amendment, and the result will be that the United States will not only be left out of the treaty, but out of the league of nations. "We will be put in the same position as Germany," he declared, "with regard to admission to the league." This view that the amendment to the treaty must he submitted to the four principal powers, but need not require the consideration of the peace confer? ence, is shared not only by other Demo? cratic Senators on the committee, but by many of the Republican Senators, in? cluding George H, Moses, of New Hampshire, who has had considerable diplomatic experience, as Minister to Greece. Knox Asks for Other Treaties Senator Knox moved that the com? mittee suspend further consideration of the treaty until the treaties which President Wiison- signed while abroad are laid before the committee, so that an idea of the international obliga ?: ns to be assumed by the Unite? ? .tes could be had by the Senate h?? foi? being asked to commit this coun? try to anything. This motion pro? voked bitter debate, in which Senator Lodge called attention to the fact that so far the President has not sub? mitted to the Senate the treaty with Poland or two protocols with Germany which he .signed in Paris on June 28, although these documents have been laid before the House of Commons by Lloyd George and English prints have reached the Senate tnrujgh unofficial channels. Senator Williams objected to this further delay, whereupon Senator Knox declared vigorously that if the Senators wished to act as ruboer stamps, imprinting themselves where the President told th?>m to make m pressions, of course there was no n?-ed for the information, but if they wished to exercise their constitutional tunc tions, which they lad taken oath ta perform, they must have the informa lion to act intelligently. Lodge to Write to President In the hope of removing this possi? bility of delay, Senator Williams, tQe strongest personal friend of the Presi? dent in t.:t Senate, then moved that the chaiimau (Senator Lodge i write the President asking him to send in what information he could and such copies of the treaties as he could. Thia motion was adopted by the committee, but the Knox motion to suspend con? sideration until the treaties are re? ceived was left pending when the com? mittee adjourned. Several Senators who are not op posed to the langue cf nations but who are vigorously opposed to Shantung ??nd otner sections of the treaty, sues as the PoUsh corridor, Thrace, tfcj Sarre Valley and other?, were not tn^ pleased with Senator S.vanson's logt# in believing tho result of the commit? tee's action would be to leave the United States ,out of the league. "Then we opuld join the league of nations afterward," said one of the?.
