ALBANY, March -7.?High officiai-- in

duced to-night by Assemblyman
Thomas I'. Burchill, Tammany repre?
sentative of the 3d Assembly District
of New York County, making perma?
nent all salary increases obtainc ! by
Timmany jobholders in the last four
years, and insuring the continuance
of all increases in salary by the tens
of thousands of favored proteges of
politicians since the creation of the
?creator city in 1808.
All this is accomplished by making
the present salaries of all city em?
ployees the minimum they shall be
paid, by prohibiting any reductions in
salary. The Burchill bill is regarded
as the most audacious piece of legis'a
tion ever offered in the Legislature.
The bill amends the greater Now
York charter by adding a new section,
to be known as 56A, which reads.
"Notwithstandirig the provisions of
the preceding section, no salary of any
officer or person, coming within the
provisions of such section, shall be ie
duppH below the arnouni of such salary
as the same is fixed at the time this
act takes effect."
Plan to Help Hylan
The measure is looked upon as an
attempt by the Hearst-Hylan-Tammanj
machine to win sup'port of the entire
office-holding population '.v New York
City as a preliminary to the formal
launching of the Dylan boom for re
Of course, an effort of this sort, tc
be successful, would have to be camou?

LONDON. March 7. George Clancy,
Mayor of Limerick, and Michael O'Cal
laghan, his predecessor in office, were
shot and killed in their homes early
this morning in the presence of their
wives by three masked men. Mrs.
Clancy was wounded in attempting to
defend her husband. Later a young
riian named O'Donoghue was killed un?
der similar circumstances in his home
by three men. It is believed the same
parties committed the three killings,
which occurred within a brief period
of each other.
Clancy and O'Callaghan were both
Sinn F?iners,
The killings were commited at about.
2 o'clock. A knocking on his front
door aroused O'Callaghan and his wife.
The Mayor arose and through the door
asked who was there. He was ordered
to come outside, but refused and also
refused to open tlje door. The door
v. as burst open and three men wear?
ing long coats and goggle masks rushed
into the house. The intruders told
O'Callaghan that unless he came out?
side the house they would force him to.
Wife Fights for Husband
Mrs. O'Callaghan cried out to her
husband not to go out, and as the three
masked men rushed at O'Callaghan she
threw herself in front of him and
struggled with his assailants. One of
them struck her down unconscious and
then they opened fire With revolvers
on O'Callaghan, leaving him dead.
A short while later the same three
men, or others acting with them, vis?
ited Clancy's house, where the same
procedure was followed. Clancy went
?own the stairs, followed by the
.Mayoress, and refused to go outside
or open the <h?>or. The assailants broke
in the door, and as Mrs. Clancy threw
herself in front of her husband they
opened fire, killing the Mayor and
wounding the Mayoress in the arm.
Presumably the same men then vis?
ited O'Donoghue's home. He also was
.hot dead.
Hard to (.ef Help
The affairs took place during the
curfew hours and it was impossible for
some time to obtain assistance, those
whose attention was attracted by tin
knocking on their doors or who re?
ceived telephone calls being afraid to
vehtur? out. Ultimately doctors and
the police were summoned. The. latter
acted as escorts to the friends visiting
the homes of the victims.
Last night two Sinn F?iners, "on the
run." were pursued to a farm at Cahir,
Tipperary. One was killed and the
other arrested. Two men weie killed
and thro-? others were captured in an?
other part of the county last nigh'.
Relief that George Clancy. Mayor of
Limerick, who was sHot and killed in
?hat city yesterday, had been slain after
he had come out of hiding to see his
wife wys expressed here last night
by the dead man's brother, Egan, sec?
retary of the Irish-American League of
New York.
Egan told The Associated'Press that,
his brother had been forced to hide in
tie Cu'rleui Mountains -^ a result of
his activities in connection with the
battle of Me.croom on last February
"He was hiding at the time of his
election to the office of Mayor of Lim?

From The Tribune's Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, March 8.?The ex
tra session of Congress will be called
not earlier than April ?1, and perhaps
not until a week later. This announce?
ment was made shortly after midnight
this morning by President Harding
himself, after a long conference at the
White House with Sonate and House
The conf?rence was the first ex?
tended on?? with a large group of lead?
ers in Congress which President Har
ding has had since he Was inaugurated.
It is only the beginning of numerous
conferences of the same nature, accord?
ing to the President. He said last
right he found it "extremely helpful
te touch elbows" with the Senators and
House members and talk frankly over
the questions which have to be faced.
Discuss Extra Session Program
Th - conference followed a dinner at
the White House at which the Presi?
dent and Mrs. Harding entertained a
group of influential Senators and
House members. The dinner began at
8. It was a few minutes after mid?
night, when the conference broke up.
President Harding then announced
that he had asked a number of the
Senators and Representatives to the
Whit? House to discuss with them
primarily the dut... [or calling the extra
session. Varying opinions were ex?
pressed and. while no definite decision
was reached, i! was decided that it
would he not earlier than April 4 and
might he a week later, or April 11.
"In addition to thai," said President
Harding, "we discussed a wide range
of subjects pertaining to the possible
program of the extra session. We
talked over domestic matters almost
entir? ?y."
The tariff and taxation problem?
were the subjects of a great deal of
the discussion, according to the Presi?
dent. In this connection, !:e said,
there' was consideration of which was
the most important, taxation or tariff
legislation, and which ought, to be
taken up first.
On this, the President added, "there
was wide difference of opinion."
The matter was not settled. The
President said the Ways and Means
and Finance committees would canvass
the matter further, seek to ascertain
the views of the members generally.
and then a definite program would be
mapped out.
Other subjects which were brought up
in the talk about the White House
table includi d the failure of the army
and navy appropriation bills and what
?vas the best manner of dealing with
them al the extra session.
President Harding made it plain that
the White House dinner and confer?
ence to-night was in accord with his
general plan to cooperate closely with
"Instead of going into the session
without any plans as to where we ."re
going, we are trying to formulate a
program in advance,!' said President
"This is the beginning of a program
??!' cooperation between the .'residen-I
and Congress."
He added that he was taking this
step in fulfillment of what he believed
to be tin- best method of procedure
under our form of government, for the
Executive and Congress to cooperate

From 'lite Tribune's Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, March 7. Majo*
Genera! Wood has been ordered to
the Philippines to make a survey of
conditions there. He goes as a soldier
as ?ell as a tried administrator an 1
his task is to find remedies for tie
existing political chaos, burliness de?
pression and weakened military situa?
tion of the islands.
Hefore coming to Washington to be
inaugural President Harding made
a definite tender of the Governor Gen?
eralship of the Philippines to General
Wood and they discussed this ofer
last week in Marion. General Wood at'
that time said they had not come to j
the decision, but he would come to I
the Capital to settle the matter a ,
lev. days after the inauguration.
?Secretary of War Weeks accompani?
ed the General to the White House
conference with President Harding
this afternoon. They were closeted
nearly an hour and then Secretary
Weeks read to newspaper men a state- ?
ment that appeared to have been writ?
ten with the stubby lead pencil of the
commander in chief of the army. This
was as follows:
"The President is not unmindful of
changes in policy recommended by his
predecessor in dealing with the Philip- I
pines. He is anxious to settle definite- !
ly our policy and has asked General '
Wood, because of his extended ex- 1
perience there, to go to the islands and j
report eonditions as he may find them."
Will Obey Assignment
Secretary Weeks was asked, in view \
of the previous tender of-the Governor'
Genet alship, what General Wood would I
do. "He will go there; he is in the
army," replied the War Department I
head with a smile. "If General Wood i
vas offered the Governor Generalship ;
the offer has been modified."
A few moments later General Wood, ',
halted on his way from the office of j
President Harding, replying to ques- !
tions as to his intentions, said: "I am :
a servant of the Republic." He said ;
it smilingly and proudly.
An hour or. so later most of official
Washington, gathered at Keith's The- ;
ater to attend a Press Club "Hobby
Show," cheered General Wood when he
entered the box occupied by the Presi?
dent and Mrs. Harding and Yice-Presi-.
dent and Mrs. Coolidge. To-night the ;
General left for Philadelphia with'
' George Wharton Pepper to have a con
icrence about the provostship of the ;
University of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Pepper '.came here to-day to give!
General Wood facts about the strong !
and growing desire of the graduates
of the University of Pennsylvania to
offer him the provostship. It is be?
lieved that General Wood may have been
influenced to decline the Governor Gen
. eralship of the islands because of an
! inclination to go to the university.;
Some of his friends think that on nis
! return lie 'may resign From the army
?end accept the provostship.
Some Natives Seditious
The decision to send a strong figure
, such as General Wood to the islands
, is expected to have its most important
; effect on those native leaders of the
: Filipinos who have resorted to sedition |
I in their efforts to bring about inde?
pendence for the '?'tie brown people.
; Some of these leaders are known to
have dealt -with the niil'tary of Japan,

Germany Puts
Up Gas Plants
For New War
Dr. Charles H. Herty Says
Her Growing Dye Works
Are Designed to Four Out
Clouds of Poison Fumes
Will Be Chief Weapon
Declares Treaty's Failure to
Curb Industry Leaves Her
Fully Heady for Conflict
When Germany starts out again to
conquer the world she will have as her
strongest weapon poison gas, and it
will be produced in great volume in
plants now engaged in the manufacture
of dyes, for which double purpose these
plants are. adequately equipped. This
statement was made yesterday by Dr.
Charles If. Herty, authority on chem?
ical warfare and chairman of the com?
mittee of the American Chemical So?
ciety, which, as an advisory body, was
in large part: responsible for the de?
velopment of the chemical warfare
branch of the United States Army.
la spite of the war which resulted
in her defeat, and regardless of her
apparent present inability to engage
the Allies in conflict again. Dr. Herty
dolares, Germany to-day, by reason
or the greatest and most active dye
stuff industry in the world, is in as
good if not better position) to launch
a modern military offensive than she
was prior to the World War.
Besides being chairman cf the ad?
visory committee of the American
Chemical Society, ;>r. Herty is editor
of The Journal of Industrial and Engi?
neering Chemistry, 1 Madison Avenue.
Following the signing of the armistice
he was sent to Fin ope by the govern?
ment on a mission which had to do
with the chemical warfare service.
During and since that time h ! has been
in close touch with virtually every
phase of German industrial activity,
and less than two weeks ago was called
to Washington to t.stify before a co-a?
mi ttee of Congress concerned with ap?
propriations for the chemical warfare
branch of the army. At that time he
pleaded for an appropriation of $4,
000,000 for chemical warfare research
and development of this branch of the
military service on the ground thai.
Germany had already established a lead
in production of dyes which constituted
a new menace to world peace.
Germany (iets Loophole
The fact that the League of Nations,
as such, has made no demands upon
Germany for a dismantling of he?- dye
industry left Germany the desired
loophole through which to plan another
war. but not, Dr. Herty says, a war
with heavy guns and battleships.
"Under the post-war conditions im?
posed by the Allies Germany's dye
plantr-i have been closely supervised by
Allied soldiery," Dr. Herty said, "I
know that in all negotiations going on
within the last year the Germans have
be??n willing and have sacrificed many
things in order to get rid of this super?
vision. To-day they are free from it.
I am informed of this by an official of
uiie government xvho only recently re?
turned from Europe. What I would
lake to know is why were'they the
Germans; so anxious to get rid of that
supervision '.'
"Before the war Germany supplied
i.he whole world with dyes from her
then existing plants. There is no ques?
tion that her plants have been
largely expanded ?luring and ?ince th?

LONDON, March 7.?-Marshal Foch telegraphed to the Allied com?
manders of the army on the Rhine at 7 o'clock to-night to advance imme?
diately into Germany, occupying the cities of D?esseldorf, Duisburg and
| Ruhrort. To-night troop movements are already under way on the right
'. bank of the Rhine.
This action, at the close of the most critical day in Europe since the
peace conference, followed the complete breakdown in the reparations ne?
gotiations. The new German offer made to the Supreme Council this morn
1 ?ng was flatly rejected by the Allied ^Premiers. Premier Lloyd George,"
: speaking for the Entente, said the German substitute proposals were
! entirely unacceptable, and advised Dr. Walter Simons, head of the Berlin
delegation, that the Allies were compelled to put into effect the penalties
which would force Germany to pay her war bill.
Premier Lloyd Geor.ce, in replying to the proposals o? Dr. Simon?!;
said that the German people evidently did not realize the facts of the
: ?(nation, and he" charge! that they exhibited :i decided disposition to
shirk the responsibility for the war.
The Premier, in concluding his speech, turned to Dr. Simons and
informed him that he feared the German Foreign Minister was not in a
position to negotiate. He said that Simons represented a German public
cninion which was not ri idv to nav.

German Delegates Expect?

Proposals This Morning
PARIS, March 8. The Havas corre?
spondent at London, in a dispatch timed
1 o'clock tiiis morning, says the German
experts continue to study new pro?
posals, which, probably will be present?
ed to the Allies this * Tuesday i morn?
v Tlie departure of the German dele?
gates from London to-morrow is by no
means certain, according to the Havas
agency. It was reported that the Ger?
man delegates perhaps had not said
their last word.
"There seems to be a belief." the
London correspondent of Havas adds
in his dispatch, "that new instructions
from Berlin could reach Dr. Simons,
and it is even assured that the Ger?
man experts have aet severed all con
; tact with Allied c^f?les."

The British Premier concluded
by asserting that the proposals put
forth by Simons evaded and post?
poned a settlement and that the
sanctions must be put into effect im?
No Delay Ju*..f.e?tl
Lloyd George's speech clearly
showed his reluctance to take this
step, and he used an almost apolo?
getic tone when he said : "I very
much regret that I have to state
on behalf of the Allied governments
that not, only are the propos;.h
which Dr. Simons made this morn?
ing unacceptable, but thai, in spite
of the interval which has occurred
since our last meeting they do not
represent such an advance on the
first proposals as justify the post?
ponement of the execution of the
"1 need hardly .-.ay that we all deeply
deplore, in the interest of world peace,
having to come to this decision, and it
is not for lack of .'fTort and disette
sion that I have now to announce on
behalf of the Allies the failure to come
t?> anything ljke an approximate under?
standing with Germany."
Dr. Simons made a brief reply, in
which he protested that there, was a
misunderstanding: of his proposais.
The German delegates then left St.
James's Palace, where the conference
was "held, and will depart to-morrow
for Berlin,
It is reported that only about 15.C0U
troops will be employed to carry out
the sanctions ordere?!, but that many
more will be needed if Germany is in?
vaded. The French arc now ?aid It

will make peace with the Turkish N*

The new proposals submitted by Di
Simons were:
