Berlin Derision
Of U. S. Shown
By Bernstorff
Former Ambassador Testifies
That Ex-Kaiser and Gen?
eral Ludendorff Ignored
Him on His Return
Confident of Success
Psychology of the German
Leaders Illuminated at
Responsibility Hearing
Staff Correspondent?
BERLIN', Oct. 25.--The psychology of
the Teuton war lord, his cold contempt
for the processes of diplomacy and for
peace itself, is illuminated by that part
of the testimony of Count von Bern?
storff, former Ambassador to the I'nited
?states, before the committee inquiring
here into the question of war responsi?
bility, in which the count told of his
reception at General Headquarters on
his return from America after that
country had docjared war on Germany.
The passage followed what was per
iaps the most dramatic incident of the
entire hearing the reading by the So?
cialist Deputy Sinzheimer of the Em
peror's note to Secretary of State Zim?
mermann expressing his cold disdain
for President Wilson's peace efforts.
and Count Bernstorff's subsequentout
burst: "Then 1 am told of this to-day
for the first ti me ! "
Answering the questions of commit?
tee members, the furnier ambassador
related how, on his arrival in Germany
after th? ci apse of his endeavors to
avoid a rupture with the United States,
I e was ignored by the Kaiser for a
period of six weeks and then delib?
erately insulted by General Ludendorff.
Testimony in Trial

Bernstorff Reasons wore mentioned
?o me at the time which I did not
regard as forcible. It was perhaps

Warmuth?Are the reasons of such a

Bernst ?rff If ? am asked I must

Swedish Minister had a trunk with
dish dispatches brought on board
our ship, of which we know nothing
Afterward we were held up
n Halifax twelve days and carefully
? . ched. The English confiscated the
trunk. It was taken to London and
there opened. The English news
rs asserted at the tim. that it was
a trunk of mine. It was supposed
that th( dispatches of the embassy
were in the trunk, including Zimmer
lann's Mexican telegram, and that
' thus became known. At any rate,
Emperor believed that I ?lid not
take sufficient care of a trunk con
taining such dispatches.
Accused in Gerard Selection

porus, t!i" Kaiser charged me with

bassador to Berlin. 1 answered that
the nomination of Gerard became
known to me only after he had been

did nol appear dangerous.

dendorff thon asked me when, in my
opinion, America could appear in Eu?
rope with military forces needing: to
bo taken seriously. I answered that
this would occur in about a vear; and
if he thought to end the World War
with the U-boat war it must be done
beforehand. To this General Laden
dorff answered: "A year is not needed;
we shall finish up things before that
with the U-boat war."
Deputy Cohen -Did your conversa?
tion with General Ludendorff occur be?

Kaiser or afterward?
Bernstorff 1 spoke with the Kaiser
before that.

Cohen -Did you also speak with

Bernstorff I spoke also with Field
Marshal von Hindenburg.

such serious things? Perhaps the men
in the political division of General
Headquarters ?
Bernstorff No.
Ginzheimer?Did you regard the
reasons for which as you thought you
were not received by the Kaiser' as
real or only as a pretext?
Bernstorff?Pretext is too strong n
word. 1 personally assumed, indeed.
that the cause lay in deep-seated dif?
ferences of political views.
Professor Bonn?Did you give Gen?

tarse peace efforts were no diplomatic

you at least believed bona fide that ?
you were representing the policy of the !
Bernstorff?-Yes; 1 told him so. 1
recall an expression that I forgot a
while ago. that Genera] LudendorlT
answered my remark about wanting to
make peace before we reached our end i
by saying: "Moreover, you were per- .
haps partly justified in believing that
you ought to act as you did, for from
your information (instructions) you.
could gather the thought that we had;
reached the end." I now recall that:
Questions by Deputy Cohen brought
out that Count von Bernstorff did not;
receive any invitation to confer with !
the military leaders at headquarters,
and that his conversations there oc?
curred casually and were of a totally!
informal character. Continuing, Count
Bernstorff declared that German pub?
lic opinion was wrought up against]
mediation by President Wilson and in
favor of ruthless submarine warfare by
"an artificial propaganda in the press."'

D 'Annunzio 's Entry to Zara
Made Dramatic Spectacle
1 , ?-7
Striking Incidents of Occupation of Dalmatian
City Related by Eyewitness; Eloquence of
Poet Said to Have Stirred Populace to Frenzy
POME, Nov. 22 ?By The Associated
Press).?Now that details of Gabriele
d'Annunzio's recent exploit on the
Dalmatian coast arc being permitted
publication in the Italian press, after
the lapse of nearly a week, some
graphic accounts of the progress of
the insurgent poet's adventure are
coming to light. One narrative by an
eyewitness who accompanied d'An?
nunzio on the expedition to Zara de?
scribes the events of the voyage and
arrival picturesquely and records some
characteristic utterances by the leader
of the band of .1,000 men who set out
from Fiume at midnight of November
13, d'Annunzio's torpedo boat destroyer
Nullo leading the vessels of the little
By dawn of Friday morning, the
narrator relates, every one was on the
deck of tho Nullo, d'Annunzio himself
on the bridge surrounded by his staff,
with all eyes strained to catch a
glimpse of the Dalmatian mainland.
At. 8:30 o'clock a dense cloud of smoke
was seen, indicating the location of
the port of Zara. Some on board
thought the smoke was caused by two
destroyers known to be there, while
others feared that a larger Italian
warship possibly was being sent out to
oppose them. Every one was anxious
and the sailors received orders to take
their lighting posts, the gunners stand?
ing beside their pieces.
No Opposition From Millo
The port finally became clearly dis?
tinguishable and one of two destroyers
observable approached t he Nullo. Tho
craft was identified as the destroyer
Ind?mito. The sailors on the Nullo
wanted to greet it with welcoming
cries, but d'Annunzio ordered that no
one speak unless he gave permission.
Then came a hail from the approach?
ing destroyer, upon which all eyes
were intently fixed. Her commander,
speaking through a megaphone, said:
"His excellency. Admiral Millo, asks
where you are going?"
A pause which the narrator says
seemed never would end, and marked
only by the sound of the throbbing
engines, finally was broken by the
voice of Commander Rizzo, in charge
of the squadron, who cried back from
the Nullo:
"I, Gabriele d'Annunzio, commande!
of the City of Fiume, am going tc
"All right," quickly and distinetl>
came the response. At the same time
the sailors on the destroyer Ind?mito
waved their arms and caps, shouting
at the top of their voices: "Vivs
Italia! Viva d'Annunzio!"
From the Nullo came answering
'?oices shouting "Viva Italian Zara!'
Banners were waved frantically fron*
both vessels, and the voice from the
destroyer standing by continued, "Ad?
miral Millo sent us to tell you he wil
meet d'Annunzio."
Populace of Zara Excited
The news soon spread in Zara tha
a convoy flying the flag of Fiume wa:
approaching the port. All the churcl
bells started ringing and tho popula
tion flocked into the streets.
"Every face," continues the narra
tive, was ecstatic with reverence an?
?surprise. Some of the people could
I not believe their eyes and asked who
jit was that was coming, receiving in
reply the shouts of a hundred voices
crying the name of d'Annunzio and
the Fiume volunteers,
* "Although nobody knew what Ad
j mirai Millo's course would he, nobody
! seemed to have the least fear of a con?
flict, and the landing of d'Annunzio and
his officers gave ris;' to a noisy demon?
stration. There were cheers for Com?
mander Rizzo, Major Guirati, head of
the Fiume Cabinet: Captain Venturi,
organizer of the Fiume volunteers, and
others, but at the sight of d'Annunzio
the crowd seethed with excitement.
Women cried incoherent words of wel?
come. Old people wept unrestrainedly.
Nothing was heard but cries of joy;
nothing was seen hut waving hands,
hats and tricolore?! handkerchiefs.
"D'Annunzio appeared absolutely
transfigured. His followers were com?
pelled to struggle to protect him from
the population, who otherwise would
have suffocated him. Finally, an auto?
mobile succeeded in carrying him to
: the seat of government, where Admiral
| Millo awaited him. He remained talk
j ing for half an hour with the Admiral,
| after which the latter, m d'Annunzio's
presence, ordered Major Bucci, his chief
of staff, to send a telegram to the gov?
ernment at Rome announcing the ar?
rival of the Fiume volunteers and add?
ing that Admiral Millo had sworn not
to allow a single Italian soldier to
leave Dalmatia.
Millo Named as Governor
"When d'Annunzio, accompanied by
Admiral Millo and Mayor Zilliotti and
other notables, appeared on the terrace
overlooking the sea, where a body of
800 Zara Volunteers had gathered, lie
received a notable ovation, the out?
burst lasting t?>n minutes. Then in a
loud voice d'Annunzio gave his 'first
greeting to holy Zara,' saying every
Dalmatian stone was worthy to form
part of an altar to the mother country.
)le concluded by solemnly presenting
Admiral Millo ns the first Governor of
Italian Dalmatia.
"D'Annunzio returned on foot to his
ship, Struggling through the crowds.
One young woman among the demon?
strators bursl into tears of joy as she
approached the poet, who embraced her
and explained :
"T thought to carry the flame of
Fiume to the sister city of Zara, but J
find I have carried flame to flame.' "

there was no occasion for further serv?

elected to tho mayoralty in 1897, his
term expiring in 1901. He was married
in March. 1908, to Mrs. Kate E. Hcrtle,

Portable Fences Rushed
The big passenger complement at?
tracted a crowd of about 1,500 persons
to the White Star pier. In their
eagerness to greet their friends aboard
greeters rushed the portable fences on
the upper landing of the pier entrance
and swarmed within the customs lines.
Extra guards drove the crowds back.
Customs inspectors and others having
business on the pier had difficulty in
getting to their stations.
Among the saloon passengers were
Dr. Charles J. Hatfield. of Philadel?
phia; Pr. David R. Lyman, of Walling
t'ord, Conn., and Dr. William C. White,
?if Pittsburgh, representatives of the
National Tuberculosis Association to
the meeting of the British National
Association in London in October.
Dr. Hatfield, who is director of the
Henry Phipps Institute, of Philadel?
phia, said the United States would
have to work 'natal if she expected to
keep abreast with the European coun?
tries in their efforts to arrest the
spread of tuberculosis.
"The forthcoming stile of Red ('ross
seals in this country," said Dr. Hat?
field, "will have to be pushed to the
utmost to provide money for the work
of 1920. Britain and France are per?
fecting splendid organizations for the
tight against tuberculosis, and even
Belgium is forging ahead in this di?

through the lack of good food sup?

the disease in Europe."

American Car and Foundry Company,
returned after a business trip through
England, France, Belgium and Hol?
"The need for American locomotives
and cars in Europe just now is tre?
m? ndous," he said. "France and Bel?
gium alone need $500.000.000 worth of
ra i Iroad equipment to r? place that
which was worn out by the war. Sup
plying their needs is merely a matter
of arranging credits and rates of ex?
change, The job is too great for any
group of financiers. The United States
government is the only organization

the United States should carry out the

in Europe and we will have to put in
two billion and a hulf more to carry
Europe to a position where she can

Favorable Atmosphere for Bel?

BRUSSELS, Nov. 23?King Albert's
secretary explained to the correspon?
dents to-day the object and results of
the royal visit to the United States.
The aim of the King, he said, was v.n\
to engage in political and economic
negotiations, but it was a fact that'
numerous conversations which the'
King had with eminent American
financiers, manufactur?is and seien
? -'s had developed American interest
and sympathy for Belgium and created
a favorable atmosphere.
Interpreting the King's impressions,
his secretary said the King's party was
much impressed by the strong national
feeling which was evident in the
United States, and he added:
"America is conscious of sentiments
of solidarity connecting her with other j
peoples, and it is impossible to im?
agine her leaving Europe to its des?
tinies. It is for ';s to use best our
intelligence and forces to seize trie

in N. Y. or Washington
Details of a scheme to construct,
either in New York or in Washington,
a memorial to the work of the men of
the Allied navies in the great war have
been made public by Percy S. Bullen,
treasurer of the Association of Foreign i
Press Representatives in the United |
States. Mr. Bullen recently returned ?
to New York from England.
The program is to duplicate here the I
Dover Patrol Memorial, 100 feel tall i
which is to be raise?! on the Dover
cliffs. A similar monument lias been
accepted by France ami will be built
on the French coast.
The memorial will perpetuate he
hercism and sacrifice of the men of
the American, British and French
navies who cooperated in the work of
the now famous Dover patrol. The
prospectus states the object is al-*o "to
demonstrate the unity displayed by the
sailors of all three nations a tribute
to the mutual understanding and g??od
will prevailing between each and all.'1
English Committee Collects S300,000
An English committee headed by
Mayor E. W. T. Farley, of Dover, has
raised more than $300,000 for construc?
tion of the ta.ree monuments, which
sum will not only defray the expense
of the memorials, but also will help to
establish a sailors' hotel in Dover.
The monuments will be of impressive
proportions, and designed by an artist
of international fame. It is proposed
that the unveiling in this country and
in France shall be mad?* the occasion
for a visit by a British d?put?t on
