Dr. Simons is understood to havo ex

willing to accept in settlement of Ger-;

Briand, apeaking for the Allies, told
.Stmoits promptly that he was not an
xpert and that anyth ng the Gennans

Separate Conferences Denied
Prior to to-day's meeting, it is un?
derstood that the German Foreign

both refused to meet him in that way.
On account of to-day's meeting,

Discovery of a farm at Unionville,
N". J., which has been used for the stor
ing of automobile parts, instead of for
agricultural pursuits, wa3 made yes
terday by the Newark police. The po?
lice believe the discovery will result in
several automobile owners recovering
their stolcn cars?or what is left of
Two men?William Permison, of 546
Springfieid Avenue, N'ewark, and Ben
jamin Berger, of 1234 Intervale Ave?
nue, the Bronx?are held by the po?
lice. The arrests were made by Lieu
tenant Haller and Sergeant Rath, of
the automobile squad, and Paul S. Mur
phy. of the Automobile Underwriters'
Detective Bureau.
The police say that Permison admit
ted wrecking at least one o/ the cars,
and said it had been done with the
knowledge of tbe owner. Berger con
fessed, it is saici, that he assisted in the
dismantling of several machines. He
said Permison wrecked more than one
car. He udmitted that the cars he took
apart were v/orth from $2,500 to $3,500
each. Berger, the police say, deelared
that his share from the sale of parts of
a car amounted to from $40 to $90 on
each transaetion. and that he sometimes
received $100 for "making an automo?
bile disappear." While the police are
convniced that some of the machines
thut have been junked on the Uuion?
ville farm were "stolen" with the con
sent of their owners, to collect insurance
raonoy, they also are certain that several
cars that found their way to the form
were fcaken there by automobile thieves.
On the farm the police found nine
cha<'sis, seven hodies, many license
plates and innumerable parts*. Several
license plates wero found beneath a
layer of stonea on the bank of a little
brook on the farm. The place belongs
to John H. Kedlan and is known as the
Springfieid Fioral Farms. Kodlan said
the place waa ren'.ed about November
1 by Permison. The polico say that the
owner had no knowledge of how it was
being used.
Throu^h the license plates that were
found the police have traced the own
era of several of the cars, but their
r.ames are beinr? withheld. The farm
i- located on Old Mill Road on the bor
der between Es&sx and Union eounties.

that the counter revolutionaries are in
full control of Petrograd, the Red fleet <

From The Tribune'a Washington liureaic
W'ASHINGTON, March 5.?It has
long been the theory of Warren G.
Harding that the affairs of the United
States were too large to be conducted
by one raan. He expounded that doc
trine in The Marion Daily Star, in the
Senate and in the laat campaign. [n
the White Houae to-day President
Harding practiced what he has preached.
There was a conference first with the
new Secretariea of State, War and ,
the Navy. Mr, Harding discussed with I
Mr. Hughen, Mr. Weeka and Mr.
Denhy the delicate situation con
fronting the United States ut Pan
ama, which haa been invaded by
Costa Rica. Within an hour, instead
of rnerely diplomatic notes, the United
States cruiser Sacrainento was on its
way southward to the scene of hostili
ties with broad instiuctions to protect
Amcrican lives and property.
When this had been done Senator
Henry Cabot Lodge, the majority lead
er, and his House conferee, Repre
sentative Frank Mondell, came at the
President's invitation. Their advice
was sought about the best date for con
vening Congress in the extraordinary
session which is to give the United
States the peace by duclaration prom
ised in Mr. Harding's speech accepting
the Republican nomination. Thcn, also,
Mr. Lodge was consulted about treaties
j pending before the Senate.
Mr. Harding discussed the coming
j reorganization of the Republican Na
tional Committee with Elmer Dover,
| of Takoma, Wash. Mr. Dover formerly
! was secrctary of the committee and
| now is mentioned for chairman to suc
ceod Will H. Hays.
Crowd About White Hoose
! The great iron gates stood wide open
j all day long, and a steady stream of
! people entered and left the premises
! that have been closed to the public
i since tho United States entered the
! war against Gcrmany. Distinguished
! citizens in top hats. humbler colored
j fclks and p.ven red Indians came call
! ing at the homo of America'a first
| citizen.
| ^ Long ago, when he was devoting ali
I his energy to the little newspaper
i upon which he founded his carcer, Mr.
; Harding decided that all work andno
| play makes Jack a dull hoy. So to-day
he agreed with Mrs. Harding that they
would start the new Adminiatration
nght by attending the theater to-night.
Jn making their selection of several
attractions playing in Washington they
discovered that an old friend, Al Jol
son, was playing at. the Belasco.
.Tolson headed a delegation of stage
and motion picture people to the front
porch at Marion last summer. That
was the occasion when the Hardings
discovered that the new Secretary of
State, Charlea Evans Hughes, was, as
one of the movie actressea expressed
it, a "regular fellow."

reunion at the theater to-night, furthe

The President and Mrs. Harding
were cheered when they arrived at the
theater. He shook hands with the man
ager. As he and Mrs. Harding were
escorted to the Presidential box the
orchestra played the Star-Spangled
Banner, and the audience applauded.
Mr. Harding was up before 7 o'clock
thia morning, and, as he expressed it,
"ready to tackle the job." A few min
utea before f) o'clock he was at his desk
and to work. While he received hi9

"Woodrow Wilson," spent his first day
as a private citizen to-day resting from j
the aevere phyaical straln entailed by
hia particitation in yeaterday'a in
augural ceremonie.-!.
The former President aroae at the I
cuatomary hour this morning, greatly
refreshed from a iong night's sleep, but
still slightly fatigued. He ate a hearty |
breakfaat and then turned his atten- ''
tion to the mass of telegrams and
lettera which had arrived at Citizen
Wilaon'a new reaidence, at 2340 8
Street, Northwest.
Later the former President directed
the diapoaition of many of the volumea
which oompose his library, and gave
his approval to the arrangement of his
new study, right off the library, which
wtll be hia ruture "workroom." The

Rear Admiral Cary T. Grayaon who
attended the ex-Preaident during hia
long illneas, but who officially took up i
his new aaaignment as head of the |

his former chief during the morning
and was cheered with the appearance
of Mr. Wilaon. Admiral Grayson in-!

Frienda of the ex-President and Mra,
Wilson, apparently thoughtful of the
fact that opportunity should be given
the former Chief Exeeutive to put his
new house in order, did not seek per
aonal contact with the Wilsona, but
throughout the day cars drew up to the
residence and drivera left cards from
their employera. A number of large
bouquet1; also were received from
frier.ds who deaired in thia manner
to expreas to the former President
their kindly sentiments.
Accornpanied by Mrs. Wilson and
others of the household, the former
President took a long motor ride this
aftemoon through Rock Creek Park
and into Virginia. Although devoid of
the usual Secret Service detail and no
longer riding in one of the distinctive
White House cars, the former Presi?

One of the communicationa received
by the former President to-day was the
formal expression of appreciation of
his Cabinet members, conveyed in a
letter bearing their signaturea. The
former Cabinet members explained that
they took this meana of conveying to
Mr. Wilson their sentiments because
they felt their verbal expression.-j at
the linal Cabinet meeting last Tuesday
had been inadequate. The letter from
the former Cabinet membera follows:
"Mr. President:

WASHINGTON', March 5. ? Former I
Senator Ciiarles B. Henderson, of Ne- i
vada, whose term in the Senate ended j
at noon March 4, was shot and wounded j
in the right arm to-day while in his '
offices in the Senate office huilding. !
The shooting was done by Charles Au- ;
gust Grock, sixty-iive years old, who ,
lives at Takoma Park, near Wasbing- ?
ton, and who formerly lived at Reno, j
Senator Henderson'a wound was in
the forearm, between the elbow and I
wrist. No bones were broken. IIvs re- \
covery will be rapi.i.
Quickness of Senator Henderson in
striking the assailant's revolver when '
it was presaed against his chest pre
vented the shooting from being fatal. '
Half a second's delay would have cost
the Senator his life.
Grock shot Senator Henderson he- I
cause of an ancient grievancu arising
out of a land law case. He is thought
to be mentally unbalanced. Until the ]
affair of ro-day ne was regarded as
harmless, though he had been in a Ne- ,
vada asylum at one tirne.
_ Though he retired from the Senate on
Friday, Senator Henderson still is in I
possesaion of his offices in the Senate ,
office building. He went to these offices |
this forenoon and, as he had done sev-!
eral times before, Grock called. It was '
11:30 o'clock.
Assailant a Former Lawyer
Aa Senator Henderson told the story, I
Grock, who is now a mechanic for the j
j American Railway Expreas, formerly
| practiced law. Senator Henderson'a law ;
ftrm employed him in a case, but he was i
later dropped out of it. He blamed the ;
rirm for this and alleged he lost a con
aiderable sum of money a.s a reault.
.Senator Henderson had talked the I
old affair over repeatedly with Grock, j
I seeking to show him he had no griev- |
? ance. To-day, when Grock called, Sen
! ator Henderson, who had been In hu',
: private office, went into the public office,
met Grock and said: "I haven't time
! to see you now. Come back afd o'cioek."
? Grock stepped outaide, but returned.
j "By God, you will see me." said Grock,
] drawing his revolver and pressing it
; against the Senator's chest.
! The Senator airuck the weapon with
his left hand. it was discharged, the
? bullet going through the right 'arm.
Mrs. Frank Healy, clerk in the office,
| cried for help. Her outcry and the'
| sound of the shooting were heard by
I George V. Messer, secretary to Sena
j for Roussard in an adjoir.irg office.
| Messer rushed in and ordered Grock
? to drop the revolver. Grock laid it on
| a box and then Messer turned him
| over to the police.
Senator Walks to Ambulance
Senator Henderson, who backed into
l his private office and slammcd the
door when shot, was given rirst aid
; by Senator Ball, of Delaware, who is
a physician, and then walked outside
j to an ambulance and was taken to
Emergency Hospital.
Senator Henderson is forty-eight
: years old, an athlete. was a rougli
[ rider in the Spanish War, is a grad
! uate of Aun Arbor and a banker and
lawyer, He is one of the group of
j Dernocratic members of the upper
house defeated in November.
Grock was born in Germany. He
shot Senator Henderson with an old
fashioned 38-caIiber revolver. Inves
tigation showed it had been fully
loaded, with five cartridgep.
