Russian Delegation in
London Says Wishes of
Britain and Italy Met
LONDON, Aug. 26 (By The Asso?
ciated Tress).?The Russian Soviet
government replied to-day to the
rote ef Arthur J. Balfour, Lord
president of the council, concerning
the Soviet peace terms to Poland.
The Soviet government agrees to
irithdraw its conditions that the
poles provide arms for a workmen's
militia of 200,000 men in Poland.
The Soviet reply was received by
the Russian delegation here. The
Moscow government says that in
withdrawing '.his condition it is
' subordinating everything else to its
paramount desire to secure the es?
tablishment of peace throughout the
world. The Russian delegation in
London claims that this concession
meets the wishes of the British and
Italian governments.
M. Tehitcherin's Reply
The note of M. Tchitcherin, the Rus?
sian Soviet Foreign Minister, to Mr.
Balfour. opens with n comment on the
unusual tone of the Anglo-Italian
governments' communication, which, it
say?, does not tend to help permanent
good relations ami world peace.
It calla attention to the action of
those governments, which had so often
accused the Russian government of in?
terfering the internal affairs of
other states, and charges that in this
communication "they have issued peace
directed against our insti?
ll constitutes an act of in
in Russian affairs sufficient
? rresponding action by us. '
M. Tchitcherin says, however, that,
nal irai resentment, the Soviet
governm? iecided not to insist
is point, but to meet fully the
.?:='. of the Anglo-Italian govern
ments in the interest of the establish?
ment of ; ? rmanent good will.
Expressing surprise that the qv.es
? ie . :.'. ^rpretation of principle
shou : have caused such difficulty, M.
erin proceeds to argue that af
limitation of Poland's army to
was recognized by the British
government as a just peace term it
was a cor.cession on the part of Rus?
sia to admit the formation of civil
mil t a, which, he asserts, "is, in fact,
a supplementary armed force," and
adds : "We therefore find it astonish?
ing that this should arouse the British
government's indignation.
Britain's Stand Criticized
"Seeing that Great Britain declares
peace through eastern Eirrope to be its
aim. we can point to the fact that the
workers in Poland for a long time
have been the one force steadfastly
opposed to the Polish government pol?
icy and have in repeated resolutions
demanded peace with Russia. If, never?
theless, the British government so
forcibly opposes strengthening this
fundamenta! pillar of peace ;t clearly
shows with what distrust it regards
the work' rs.
"If the British government, indeed,
thinks that the workers by nature ara'
animated by the doctrine of Bolshe-,
vism such a point of view undoubtedly !
will be welcomed by those who look
forward to spreading Bolshevism in
Great Britain."
Alluding to the proposed civic mili?
tia, he says :
"Although our intcmretation of this
point in our peace terms is thoroughly
justified, we nevertheless are willing to
remove this, the only point of diver
prey, in order to establish a full un?
derstanding between us and the above
"As to the terms of peace with Po?
land, we first of all declare we never
considered our terms as an ultimatum
and arc still, as we have been nil the
timp. willing to discuss them with the
Polish government, with whom alone
*e are treating for peace. Any under?
takings we may give there anent will,
therefore, he given to Poland alone.
'In view, nevertheless,.of our ear?
nest desire to obtain important results
'or the world's welfare and a peace
?Wising from peace with Great Britain,
*e are willing to inform the British
?j government 'hat the Russian govern
t]f. I ?a resolved to make a concession
?n this point.
"It will not insist upon the clause
referring to the aiming in Poland of a
workers civic militia, thus securing
?II agreement with Great Britain at
to a.l the terms of peace with Poland."

The Polish Legation here to-day is
Wed an official statement of the Polish
rremier VVitos to the effect that Poland

WARSAW, Aug. 26.?(By The Associ?

released from the Finnish frontier
have been rushed towaid Grodno in an
endeavor to head off the Polish ad?
vance and, if possible, to rescue
thousands of the Pved army hemmed in
by the Poles, according to last night's
military information.
Owing to the Soviet-Finnish peace
treaty, thousands of Reds, it is re?
ported, are being transferred to the
Polish front. The Poles are expected
to reoccupy Grodno at an early date.

the German authorities and taken be?

to clear out the northern regions of

Russian Brigade Surrenders
A Bolshevik brigade of 4,000 which ?

was surrounded and surrendered to the ?
reinforced Polish army that is clear- I
ing out the region south of the Dnies?
ter and the left bank of the Bug on the !
Galician front.
The Bolsheviki no longer are grouped !
on a continuous front, but isolated ?
lighting is continuing. Groups that |
reach the right bank of the Dniester'
are driven back or surrounded and i
captured. These Red detachments are I
said to be composed largely of Cau?a- !
sians or Turkestans. It is reported i
that they have done much pillaging,
but have not displayed ardor in fight- j
ing for the Soviets.
The Polish cavalry on the southern j
front, after a short hand-to-hand lifrht,
wiped out the 72d Bolshevik Brigade
and made many prisoners, including
the brigade chief of staff.
Reinforcements on Way to Front
Soviet reserves are reported being
brought up on the southern front in
great numbers. According to informa?
tion in the hands of General Haller, j
reserves some distance behind the Bol?

brought up.

lief that, although crushed in the north,
the Bolsheviki plan to renew their of?

The mutilated body of a woman that
was found in the tangled bushes of n
vacant lot at. Grr.ntwood, N. J., was
i identified by four persons yesterday
as that of Blanche, the wife of Frank
Schulz, of 405 East 135th Street, a
former conductor employed by the In
terborough Company.
Scarcely had the identification been
made in the gloomy brick building at
the back of the undertaking establish?

Hackcnnack in the early hours of the j

had been missing since last Saturday,

York and taken before District Attor?
ney Martin of the Bronx for further |
He returned to Hnckensack volunta-|
rily last night with Edward Faulkner, a ?
friend, and both men wefe committed ?
to Bergen County jail as material wit- ?
nesses by Judge Thomas II. Summings. j
County Detective Allyn accompanied j
the two men from the Bronx to Hack- j

made for the arraignment before Judge
Husband Is Questioned
As Schuh', was being conducted to j
District Attorney Martin's office Miss
Helen E. Herrmann walked into the j
Marriage License Bureau in Manhattan
with Nico?a Rintorna, a chauffeur, and
asked for a license. Only twelve hours
previously her mother is said to have
identified the clothing of the murdered
woman as that of her daughter, who
now appeared for a license with the
very man on whose trail the police of \
two states had been sent. The young
couple were taken to Police Headquar- |
ters, and after some formalities had |
been complied with they were married !
by Deputy Chief Clerk Dalton. Mrs. |
Herrmann, who arrived on the scene, |
witnessed her daughter's marriage. i
In the meantime the Xe.w Jersey
officials, who had permitted Schuz to
leave the state before their Investiga?
tion was complete, hurried over to the
Bronx District Attorney's office and I
joined in questioning the husband of
the murdered woman. This questioning
continued throughout the day. Mr.
Martin was aided by Charles A. Mc?
Laughlin, his assistant, and Assistant j
County Prosecutor Charles McCarthy ?
and County Detective Allyn, both of J
Hackensack, N. J. ;
Late last night, Mr. ?McLaughlin said:
"Schulz's story is certainly not sufii- I
cient to satisfy me. lie told us that j
he walked the streets of the Bronx all j
Saturday and all day Sunday until late
Sunday night, when, with Faulk- I
nor, an expressman, he engaged a taxi- :
cab, driven by a man named Frank
Ritt, and drove to the Jersey Central
ferry at Forty-second Street and the ?
North River.
Said He Was Distracted
"There they took the 12:01. boat for:
Jersey City, it being his intention to !
go to Keyport, where they planned to!
go to the home of Mrs. Otto Widmer,
the sister of his wife. On arriving in
Keyport, however, Schulz did not go to
his sister-in-law's house, but walked
the streets, he said, for an hour, then
walked to Matawan? N. J., ten miles
away, anil then returned to New York. !
"He accounts for his erratic move- :
nients by the fact that he was dis?
tracted over his wife's disappearance
on Saturday. While he whs walking
the streets in the Bronx, he said, he '
returned from time to time to the
premises in 135th Street occupied by
him and his wife in the hope of receiv?
ing telegrams revealing her where?
After Schulz had told that part of
his story to the authorities Detectives
Joseph Roiily and Charles Armstrong,
of the 'Fremont police station, took
Faulkner and Ritt into custody and
brought them to the District Attor?
ney's office to bo questioned.
While this was proceeding in the
Bronx the authorities in Hackcnsack I
continued their investigation. Otto
Widmer, husband of the murdered .
woman's sister, arrived there from :
Keyport and also identified the body
as that of his sister-in-law. Shortly
afterward Mr. and Mrs. Louis Friar,

Jurist Says Relative Can Be ?
Found and Will Be!
Able to Explain All I
The liquor scandal brought out by
the murder of Frederick ("Robert")
Eckert, the bootlegger who was found
dead last Saturday in an automobile
on Old Town Road, Staten Island, took
on more definite shape yesterday.
John J. Quiglcy, assistant supervis?
ing prohibition agent, said yesterday
that William P. Tiernan, brother of
County Judire J. Harry Tiernan, of
Richmond, was being sought in con?
nection with an alleged violation of ?
the liquor laws.
Judire Tiernan, acting as City Magis?
trate, received the complaint of murder
in. the first degree, made early this
werk by .Mrs. Eckert, against William j
Moloney and Charles Kane.
lias Liquor License
Mr. Quigley said that William P.
Tiernan lias a license to tret liquor out
of bond for medical purposes. He said
he is under bond to prevent his using
it for illegal purposes. Judge William
1). Allen, the agent in charge of the
Brooklyn office, is now conducting an I
investigation to discover whether Will?
iam Tiernan has broken his bond.
"Three agents raided a roadhouse
operated by Henry llugot, in St. George,
Staten Island," said Mr. Quigley. "That
was some time ago. We bad received
information that a man named Beiger,
on Avenue B, was doing an illegal
liquor business, and in the course of
the investigation agents picked up a |
truck driver by the name of Butter.
"Butter used to carry liquor for Ber- I
gcr. He told the agents that he had
not long ngo delivered three barrels to
Hugot. Isadorc Einstein and two other
agents went with a search warrant
issued by United States Commissioner
McGoldrick, in Brooklyn, to Ilugot's i
place on August 17.
"They expected to find three barrels
of whisky. Instead of that they found I
six barrels of it and live cases of gin.'
They easily identified the three barrels
they sought by their brands. They
came from Berger, but Hugot would
not say where the rest of the stuff
came from. It was found, however,
that the three extra barrels bad been
withdrawn from bond by William
Judge Tiernan saiil yesterday after?
noon that he knew nothing about Mr.
Quigley's charges. William Tiernan
could not be found at his home, 58
St. Paul's Avenue; his trucking place,
'.'?'Z Van Denser Street, or his ware?
house, 79 Van Heuser Street.
In Liquor Business Six Months
The judge said that he was sure his
brother could explain it all satisfac?
torily. He said that William hud been j
in the wholesale liquor business for j
about six months and that the deal
was perfectly legitimate.
Before the war, the judge said, his
brother had been in the taxicab busi?
ness, and when he bad come home from
service in the navy had started in the
liquor and the trucking business.
When asked if he did his trucking;
business in connection with his liquor
business, he said "yes."
Judge Tiernan said that his brother!
did not know Eckert. He was much
interested in Mr. Quigley's story and
especially wanted to know whether
llugot had said he received three bar?
rels of whisky from his brother. He
was told that he had not but that the
marks on the barrels had shown by
whom they had been withdrawn.
Mr. Quigley said that Judge Allen's
investigation would seek to show
whether Tiernan sold the whisky
direct to Hugot, or whether he sold
it to some one else who also held a
permit, and who in turn sold it to
llugot. In the first instance he said
Tiernan would be at fault. In the sec

Colby Signs
Of Suffrage
Secretary of State Puts
Official U. S. Seal on
I 19th Amendment, But
Avoids All Ceremony
Action Is Rebuke
To the Militants
President Receives Mrs.
Catt; Woman's Party
Leaders Are Ignored
From The Tribune> Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26?Bainbridgo
Colby, Secretary of State, "at 8 o'clock
this morning, signed the proclamation j
promulgating the Susan R. Anthony
woman suffrage resolution as the Nine?
teenth Amendment to the Constitution
of the United States.
The Secretary signed the document
without ostentation at his own home.:
Official notification from Nashville i
that the Legislature of Tennessee had ;
ratified as the required thirty-sixth
state reached the State Department be- j
fore dawn. The document was con- \
veyed immediately to Secretary Colby.
After it had been examined by Fred K.
Nielson, chief law officer of the Stato
Department, it was returned to Secre?
tary Colby, who, as soon as he had
finished breakfast, established Federal
woman sun-rage as law.
Suffragists Are Disappointed
The lack of pomp and ceremony at
the occasion of the signing was a dis?
tinct disappointment to some of the
suffragists. Leaders of the National
Woman's party were waiting at the
State Department when the Secretary
arrived, hoping to be present to wit?
ness the signing. They were met
with the announcement, that the proc?
lamation had been signed two hours
"The seal of the United States has
been duly affixed to the certificate,"
said the Secretary, "and the suffrage
amendment is now the Nineteenth
Amendment to the Constitution."
In an official statement explaining
his desire to make the action as simple
as possible Secretary Colby said:
"It was decided not. to accompany
this simple ministerial action on rny
part with any ceremony or setting.
This secondary aspect of the subject
has regretfully been the source of
considerable contention as to who
shall participate in it and who shall
not. Inasmuch as 1 am not interest?
ed in the aftermath of any of the
frictions or collisions which may
have been developed in the long
struggle for the ratification of the
amendment, I have contented myself
with the performance in the sim?
plest manner of tht duty devolved
upon me under the law."
Method Rebuke to Militants
The signing of the proclamation by
Secretary Colby without the ceremony
hoped for by the members of the Na?
tional Woman's party, the militant
branch of the suffrage workers, wars
interpreted here as a studied rebuke
to the militants for their picketing
This opinion was strengthened later
in the day when President Wilson per-j
serially received Mrs. Carrie Chapman
Catt, president of the National Ameri?
can Woman Suffrage Association, with
.Mrs. Helen M. Gardner, of the Civil
Service Commission and vice-president
of the suffrage organization.
The two prominent suffrage workers
were the first women to have been re?
ceived by the President since his ill?
ness began nearly a year ago. They
presented to the President a bour.'fc
volume containing expressions of ap?
proval from state suffrage organiza
tions of his suffrage address to Con-j
gross made before he departed for tho
peace conference.
The President received the suf- |
fragists in the Blue Room of the
executive mansion. Mrs. Wilson was
present. In the opinion of each Mr.
Wilson "looked extremely well." He
thanked them for the volume presented.
Miss Alice Paul, chairman of the
National Woman's party, with other
militants, had been on watch virtually
the entire night for the arrival of the
certificate from Tennessee.
. When the announcement was made
that tho document had been signed at
the Colby residence the visitors were
noticeably crestfallen. Disappointed,
the women retired to their head?
Proclamation Read to Suffragists
Later Mrs. Catt, accompanied by
other national officers of the organiza?
tion, visited the State Department.!
They were informed that Secretary I

regard to the proclamation and that!
he was prepared to receive them and

campaign expenses. I hope he divulges
the source of the funds which are be
i ing received by the Democratic Na?
tional Committee and by other agen?
cies to be used in an effort to elect
"Every activity of the Republican
National Committee in connection with
the raising and spending of money
will be shown by us with real satisfac?
tion before the Senate investigating
committee next week. Incidentally
Mr. Cox will have an opportunity to
do likewise. lie has charged that
millions have been paid ir;to the Re?
publican National Committee by sinis?
ter influences to corrupt the elec?
Chairman Hays paused as he uttered
the last sentence and then added:
"That charge he will have to prove.
It is an insult to the thousands of
good citizens all over the country who
are contributing to the Republican
party. The name of every single con?
tributor of every single dollar will be
given to the Senate committee next
week, and the quality of the citizenship
which constitutes that list will be such
condemnation of the veracity and ju'lg
ment of Cox that the whole country
will know him."
Hays to Refute Charges
At Republican national headquar?
ters it was said that when Chairman
Hays takes the witness stand before
the Senate committee in Chicag?r- on
Monday he wilt give some startling fig?
ures regarding Democratic campaign
Chairman Hays's testimony, it was
said, would be a complete refutation of
the charge made by Governor Cox that
"millions have been contributed from
sinister and corrupt sources in fur?
therance of a Republican conspiracy to
buy an underhold on the Presidency,"
and that, in addition, it would call for
a great deal of explanation from the
Democratic nominee for President and
hi.- hackers.
"The Republican party will not take
Governor Cox's charges lying down,'
said Chairman Hays. "1 will try tc
confine the Senate committee's attention
to the fundamentals of Governor C?x'.
charges. Regardless of the amounts ho
has quoted, however ridiculous theii
size, Governor Cox may not attack th?
integrity of those who have contributor
toward the fund of less than a millior
which we have raised.
"These sources are neither sinistei
nor corrupt. They represent the best
of our American citizenship. And 1
shall prove to the committee that th?
statement regarding "millions raised bj
the National Committee' is untrue."
Funds to Be Compared
Chairman Hays intimated that hi
would compare the expenditures of th?
Republican and Democratic parties ir
the last four years to the disadvantag?
of the Democrats.
"Governor Cox has brought up tlv
campaign fund issue and we have n>
alternative but to meet him on th
ground he has chosen," he added. "Ou
skirts are clear and we are not afrai<
for the public to make a compariso:
with the financial arrangements of ou
rivals." .
At th? rooms of the Democrati
National Committee the officials wer
not overpleased with the situatior
George White, chairman of th
Committee, declined to make any com
ment on the published reports tha
the failure of the Democratic party t
collect campaign contributions fror
the sources it had counted on precipi
tated Governor Cox's attack.
"I don't know anything about it.
said Chairman White, with a wearie
. expression.

Hays "Gave Blessing*-;
Senators to Get Facts
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 26.- Information
! to support his charges that a Repub
j lican campaign fund exceeding $15,
I 000,000 was being raised "in a con
j spiracy to buy the Presidency" was
presented by Governor Cox in address?
ing a public meeting here to-night.
Governor Cox's data consisted almost
entirely of matter taken from the offi?
cial bulletin of Fred W. Upham, of
Chicago, treasurer of the Republican
National Committee, but his chief ex?
hibit was a typewritten list purporting
to show Republican campaign quotas
imposed on fifty-one principal cities in
twenty-seven states and aggregating
Names of local subscribers, Governor
Cox said, were ordered kept secret.
These quotas, given as $2,000,000 for
New York City, $750,000 for Chicago,
i $500,000 for Philadelphia, and ranging
j down to $25,000 for smaller cities like
! Albany and Atlanta, were said by Gov?
ernor Cox to have been announced
I about the middle of July.
Says Hardinj? Knew of It
j That Senator Harding, his Republi?
can opponent, "was acquainted with
the details" of the quota plan and that
it was also approved by Will H. Hays.
j chairman of the Republican National
: Committee, was charged by the Demo?
cratic candidate.
From subsequent issues of the offi?
cial bulletin Governor (."ox quoted
many reports from Republican work?
ers throughout the country, reporting
going "over the top" and in excess ox
the alleged quotas.
Announcement of the $8,145,000
i metropolitan quotas, Governor Cox
said, was made by Harry M. Blair, as?
sistant to Treasurer Upham. A mei -
ing was held in Chicago, Governor Ce:i
said, at which Chairman 1 i..,;. s "spoko
his blessings."
The Governor charged that type?
written sheets bearing the fifty-one
cities' quotas were "distributed to those
j assembled." and he produced one of
the alleged quota -lists, but cHd not
state how or where it was acquired.
The quota plan, he said, was carried
out like that of the Liberty Loan cam?
That the reputed attempt to raisg
$8,145,000 from fifty-one cities in
twenty-seven of tho forty-eight states
is fair evidence that the total national
fund will be much larger was declared
by Governor Cox. He said big busi?
ness men were prominent on the Re?
publican Ways and Means Committee,
and that the raising of funds^ was oa
a business "salesmanship" ba^i?.
Quotes Republican Bulletin
Governor Cox also quoted from
statements in the Republican bulletin
that state and county organization
were not to be "disturbed or retarded
ir. their activities."
Calling attention to Chairman Hays'd
statement that $3,000^)00 was being
raised. Governor Cox said that to
papers carried a statement from 1 rea ?
urer Upham that the Republican total
would be about $7,500,000.
"From the evidence which we shall
submit," Governor Cox added, "! ' il Ij
! you will agree that wo are justified
in multiplying Mr. UpHam's figures bjl

the 1896 campaign, which Mr. Hanna
managed, $16,500,000 was spent.
"It was this foul thing," said Gov?
ernor Cox. "which Theodore Roosevelt
brought to an end when he reformed
the Republican party. When he waj
