Find Varotta
Boy's Body in
Hudson River

Been Reeovered Alive
Lad Slain oji L'and,

Nvack; Long in Water
GiuserP* Varotta, the five-yesr-old
boy, who was kidnaped May 24 from
in front of hia parents' home, 334 East
Thirteenth Streot, was found dcad
yesterday. The discovery of his body
was a startling verification of threats
which had been made to his father as
recent'y as last Monday by letter that
hfj bov's body would' be found floating
in the river.
It was within the limits of tide flow
to the shore of the Hudson at Pier
r.'.ont, X. V., that the body was found,
M a proiv.or.tory known as Piermont
Fier. which is the southern limit of
the Tappan Zee. Because of the con
ilition of the body, which had been in
the water for somc time, Coroner E.
C. Flenders issued a burial permit and
:t was interred at once in Oak Hill
Cecietery, Nyack.
Body To Be Disinterred To-day
Salvatore Varotta, the boy's father,
had no doubt whatever, however, after
wamining the clothing that was on the
body, that it was that of his son. The
body will be disinterred to-day. Va?
rotta spent the night at Xyack to be
present at the exhumation. Those who
saw the body said that it was that of a
child who had died struggling eithor
sgainst drowningor against an attack.
Marks on the body led some to believe
that the latter was the case and that
the boy had been killed before being
flung into the river.
In total ignorance of the fatal ter
miration of hor husband's quest or
even that the boy found at Piermont
was dead, Mrs. Varotta spent most of
the night on her kneos oefore candles
which fiickored on her mantel in honor
of the saints. Her husband had not
dared to te!l her of his fears. She
prayed that the boy found at Piermont
mighr be her boy and that he be
brought home to her soon.
Eager tears of happiness which weeks
of alternating hope and disappointment
had fgiled to e.<naust welled in the
eycd of Giuseppe's mother as she knelt
ra rrnyer. She knew, she said. that at
last her boy had been found. They
had told her of the clothirtg worn by
the boy at Piermont and it was the
clothing of her Giuseppe. There was
the sailor blouse with'its blue collar
and cuffs, the khaki trousers, the
brown laced shoes that had ben half
soled, the brown stockings and?dear
?3t of all?the little red garters which
she had found time to delight Giuseppe
by making in spite of the demands
made upon her time by housework and
\\g that rnust be done before the
iicw baby came.
The saints were good to her, said
'?!;.-. Varotta. All her . trouble was
over now and soon would be as if it
B?er had been. Hundreds of boys
?night have worn sailor b'ouses with
Mne collars and cuffs, khaki trousers,
brown stockings and even half-soled
?!.oe>, but who but Giuseppe had such
r'--d garters?
At every footstep on the stair<; Mrs.
varotta half roae to start for r>j door.
?t any r.ioment, she felt, that door
nught open and Giuseppe ride in upon
Mb father'a shoulder as he so often
'Jsed to do when he had gone to the
corner to m?et his father.

A water-front riot in Hoboken, N. J.,
! which resulted in the shooting of two
j white men and a negro and the arrest
J of five negroes, began last night when
Edward Craig, a twenty-ypar-old
; colored mess boy off the Shipping
? Board vessel McKeesport, now tied up

i seven years old, of 330 Hudson Street,
i who is a striking seaman.
Craig was leaving the ship when. Van
Adell spoke to him. The negro drew
a revolver, and shot him through the
right lung, and then ran.
A crowd was atraced by the shot,
j and by the time Craig had turned off
j River Street, several hundred persons
\ were after him. The fleeing negro

' bullet in the general direction of his

1 one years old, a chauffeur, of 70 Park

Craig continued as far as First and

"His heart is functioning," tho sur

around the patient. This was conlirmed
by two othcr surgeons, each holding
a wrist ol" the patient. They could feel
the pulae returning. To the intense
satisfaction of the silent group of doc

broaght safely through his period of

said. "'Io all appearance the man was

Bonus Question

Appeals Court to Pass
on Deeision Immediately
After It Is Rendered
From a Staff Correnpondent.
ALBANY, June 11.?Governor Millc-r,.
in order to expedite disposition by the '
courts in a suit to be instituted to
test the validity of the soldier bonus
act, has requested the Appellate Divi
sion, Third Department, to meet in
special session. This court has closed
for the summer.
The case will be a "friendly suit"
against the Westchester County Na
tional Bank of Peekskill to compel
payment by the bank of $25,000, the
emount bid by the institution last
Thursday for a block of World War
bonus bonds at par. The suit was in?
stituted by Attorney General Charles
D. Newton to-day following a con- \
ference with Governor Miller, whose |
aid was necessary in order to bring j
the case to a speedy trial.
No Trial in Lower Court
In view of the stipuiation that the
case is to be tried upon an agreed j
statement of facts, it will not be neces?
sary to try the case before the lower
courts. As soon as a determination
has been reached by the Appellate i
Division Governor Miller will ask the \
Court of Appeals, which also has ad-'
journed for the summer, to meet in
Albany, in order that no time may be
lost in earrying to the highest court
the appeal which is to be made by
thL,oslnf' 8id,e iri the initial action.
? The Westchester County National
Bark, through its president, Cornelius
A Pugsley, former Congressman, made
a bid lor $25,000 of these bonds at par
but declined to accept or pav for them
at the recent sale upon the ground that
the constitutionality of the law au
thorizjng them was in question.
Deeision Final
Should the. Court of Appeals, whose
deeision will be final. uphold the. valid?
ity of the bonds, State Comptrollo- ,
James A. Wendell will be in a position j
to advance moneys from the state sink- !
ing fund in ar.ticipation of the sale of
the bonds, thus obviating any further
delay in obtaining money for the pay?
ment of the bonus.
Attorney General Newton has des- .
ignated Deputy Attorneys General i
Kdv/ard G. Griffin and James S. Y. !
fyins to assist him in conducting the i
The stipuiation submitting the con- I
troversy was signed to-day bv the state !
authdrities and by ex-Congwssamari !
Pugsley, as prosident of the bank, and '
his attorney, Chester D. Pugsley, of !
New York City.
The constitutionality of the soldiers'
bonus law was attacked last j'all by
Benjamin S. Dean, a Jamestown Iaw
ycr. He expressed the opinion that the
law was invalid in a letter to Attorney
General Newton. The Attorney Gen?
eral replied that he would regard the
law constitutional unless and until the
highest courts held it to be otherwise j
and that he would do his utmost to j
sustain it.
The act of Mr. Dean in assailing the
bonus law was resnonsible in large
meaaure for the reluctance of New
York banking syndicates, .which usu
ally subs.cribe without eondition for '
ofl'erings of state securities, to bid fo>- I
the $10,000,000 allotm?nt of bonus of- j
fered by State Comptroller Wendell ]
last Thursday.

representing more than 325,000 work
ors, wjthdrew from the convention of
the buildinrr department when a resolu?
tion was adopted suapending any inter
national union thnt failed to comply
with the awards of the national board
of jurisdictional awards.
Unions Unite in Demand
The demand for revocation of the
New York counciL charter was pre
sented in a resolution jointly by the
dolegates of the Brotherhood of Paint
ers, Decorators and Paperhangers of
America; the Bricklayers, Masons' and
Plasterers' International Union and the
International Hod Carriers, Building j
and Common Laborecs Union.
They charged that the council?one j
of the largest in the United States ? |
enforced laws that were "in opposition ',
to the principles of the organized labor j
movement of America and deprived j
eertain uniona of representation in said !
council, because of their refusal to
comply with the laws." They objectod
to the council barring delegates that
were r.ot businoss agents and declared '
that the council had no right to dic- I
tate to the unions aa to what salary I
should be paid such representatives.
The resolutions said the executive
council of the American Federation of I
Labor had notified the building trades j
department that it had sustained pro- !
test of these organizations.
The New York council, which was j
recently investigated by tlie New York l
State -joint lcgislative committee in- j
quiring into the "building trust," also j
received the mention of the executive !
council of the federation's building I
trades department. This council's re- !
port said that every effort had been \
made to reconcile conflicting interests i
in order that complcte harmony might i
be established between the council, the j
unions and their employees.
Refused to Act-ept Award
The resolution which caused the j
withdrawal of the Carpenters' Union i
was introduced because of the union's {
refusal to ccf;ply with the award ren
dered against it in its jurisdictional
dispute with the Sheet Metal YVoikers'
Previous to the adoption of the res?
olution the convention indorsed the
work of the national board, which was :
organized for the purpose of prevent> |
ing through arbitration the tying up I
of the building industry through juris- !
dictional and inter-union disputes. \
The carpenters' delegation cas't the j
only votes against approval of the con
Linuation of the board's work.
The motion for the suspension of '
unions defying the decision-; of the
board was presented by William Bowen,
of New York. president of the Inter?
national Union of Bricklayers, Masons
and Plasterers. It w<ts adopted by a
vote of 35 to 25.
"Does that'mean that the carpenters
are suspended?" asked President Wil
liam L. Ilutcheson of the carpenters,
who had led a bitter iight on the floor
against the board.
"Yes, if they do not comply with the
board's decision," replied President
Donlin, who had recommended that
drastic action be .taken upholding the
"'All right. wc ars ouf," retorted |
President Ilutcheson. as he left the
auditorium accompanied by the other

WASHINGTON, June 11.? With vir
tuaUy all of to-day devotcd to consid
eration of tho Porter peace resolution,
the House, when it recessed to-night,
^ad gone a long way toward adoption'
of the measuro, declaring a state of
peace with Germany and Austria
Hungary. The vote on the resolution
will be taken at 4:30 o'clock Monday
Two hours of the dlscussion to-day
were consumed before the House
adopted a special rule preventing
amendments and?setting the h.our for
voting Monday. *The vote on the rule
208 to 105?was along strict party ?
lines ahd it undoubtediy is an excel- I
lent indication of how the resolution !
will tinally pass the House. Only two j
Republicans voted against the measure
and three Democrats for it. The Re- j
publicaha were J. D. Beck, of Wiscon- i
sin, and J. M. Nelson, of Wisconsin. !
Democrats voting for the resolution j
were Whitmell P. Mavtin, of Louisiana; j
George K. Favrot, of Louisiana, and I
William C. Lankford, of Georgia.
Democratic opposition to the special I
rule was based on the claim that the I
House has invoked the "gag" rule to so
great an extent that it has become j
"abaaed." Jt was claimed that if the!
practice is continued the House will '
lose the eminent place provided for it ]
by the Constitution in the order of the j
govcrnment. j
Cockran Lcads Opposition
Tlepresentativa W. Bourke Cockran,
Demqcrat, of New York, made the prin
cipal address for the. opposition, while j
Chairman Stephen G. Porter, of the [
Foreign Affairs Committee, author of
the peace resolution. opened debate af?
ter adoption of the rule.
Mr. Porter declared the assertion
that by officially declaring the state
of war at an end the United States is
abandoning the Allies "is a gross mis
statement of fact." All the nations that:
sia;ned the Treaty of Versailles did so j
with full knowledge that it was not j
effective so far as the United States
is concerned, until ratified by the Sen- i
ate. he added.
"Yet, tpimindful of their rescue by j
this country from defeat and possible j
vassalag?, and with a total disregard
for our rights in case the United States
Senate failed to rntify the treaty," he |
said, the Allies included in the treaty '
provisions under which any three of j
them eould make a separate peace with j
Germany and leave the others in a
state of war. '
Mr. Porter then reviewed the various
steps leading to the oresent situation
in industrial affairs, in which the
United States is the only country still
technically at war. In his rei'erence
to the Knqx resolution, he said debate
in the Senate had not disclosed a sat- i
isfactory reason for repealing the j
declaration of war as well as declaring i
a state of peace. This is not desired \
by the President, he declared.
For Technical Peace Only
"Further, the Senate resolution iixes |
many terms and conditions of the:
treaty to be made with our late ene- ;
mies," he said, "thereby unmistakably
invaiding the Executive's prerogative,
Which invests him with the exclusive
initiative in the making of treaties."
Continuing, Mr. Porter said:
"In these circumstances, your com-1
mittee concluded that it was under an !
imperative duty to submit a substitute j
for the Senate resolution. It declares ,
'the state of technical peace' and un- j
dertakss to do no more. Section 2 re- j
serves all the rights of the United;
States by. reason of our participation
in the war, and embodies, in the words ,
of the President, 'the qualirications es- i
sential to protect all our rights.' It
does *ot in the slightest degree in- j
fringe upon the treaty-making powers
of the President. It. is s'tmply a find- j
ing of fact that a state of peace exists,
and carefully nreserves for future ad- '
juatment all the rights of the United '
States. Their status is the same after ;
its passage as before, and the Presi?
dent is as free and unhampered in the ;
making of a treaty as if the resolution j
had never been passed.
"The Constitution vests in Congress
all the war powers, among which is the
power to declare war and, by necessary j
implication, the power to declare a j
state of peace. A declaration of a ?
state of war and a declaration of a'
state of peace aie 'findings of fact.' I
The declaration of a state of war has
been executed by bringing the conflict |
to a successful termination; it, there- j
fore, becomes the duty of Congress to ,
lind this fact officially by declaring a i
state of peace."

Harvey to Take Disarmament and Yap
Issues Before the Supreme Council
From The Tribune'8 Washiugton Bureau
WASHINGTON, June 11.?George Harvey, American Ambassador
at London, has informod the State Department that the Supreme
Council probably will meet at Boulogne about July 1 to take up the
Silesian boundary dispute and other matters growing out of the war.
Ambassador Harvey, who has been designated by President Har
ding as the American representative on the Council, has been instructed
generaliy on the duties he is to perform at the forthcoming session of
the Council, although thcse instructions do not involve any expression
of opinion by him on matters of purely European concern, such as the
Silesian boundary matter. Active partieipation of the American rep?
resentative, however, is expected in all deliberations involving disarma?
ment, mandates and reparations.
This government regards the payment by Germany of the first
installment on the reparations to be an evidence of its intention to
meet the obligations iraposed upon it, and officials here see in this move
a gratifying indication of sincerity on the part of the enemy nation.
On the question of disarmament, Colonel Harvey is expected to
sound out the Allied representatives as to their desires for a conferencc
at which geheral reductiori of military and naval arms may be dis
cussed. The American Ambassador likewise is to cooperate with the
French and the Italian representatives in taking up the matter of man?
dates with particular reference to advancing the American contention
for the internationalization of Yap for cable purposes.

BLRLIN, June ll.-The Bavarian
monarchists and reactionaries have re
sumed their campaign of assassination
and murder in an effort to block the
government in its determination to dis
arm the country in compliance with the
Allied terms. ' Thereby they hope to
provoke an uprising among the com
mon people, which in turn would offer
an excuse for the continuation of the
military organizations built up in that
monarchist stronghold.

The Socialists of all shades of opin?
ion agree that the murder was designed
to provoke an uprising. The three-day
general strike, proelaimed by all three
Bavarian Social.ist parties, is proceed
ing neacefully, with every effort bein<*
made to prevent bloodshed. A great
protest meeting was held in Munich
by the Socialists this morning. The

"The three days of general strike
which the Munich workers have de

centcr of Germany's embarrassments.
The Beriin government must reali?;e
that, the fate of the republic depends
on the wiping out of the Von Kahr

The newspaper charges that the
members of the Orgesch are transport
ing their arms to Tyrol and storing
them there in readiness for the desired
moment. It warns the government that
the Bavarians are playing a treacher
ous game which may provoke a new ih
dustrial revolt on a national scale.
"Upon the fulfillment of our demand

French Working for Truce
Over at Angora, the Turkish Nation- j
alist seat of government, Henri Frank- j
lin-Bouillon is trying on behalf of the j
French government to patch up a peace :
with the militant organization of j
Mustapha Kemal Pasha, whose govern- '
ment repudiated the agreement made !
by its representatives in Europe for a
settlement of the outstanding difficul- ?
ties with the French. [In this connec- ?
tion it may be noted that a Paris j
dispatch of June 10 quoted Premier ;
Briand as declaring that the programs !
of the negotiations between France and :
the Turkish Nationalists gave reason I
for hope of a favorable settlement.]
Declarations are heard here also by i
representatives of all sides that they !
are anxious for peace, but while the ]
word "peace" is frequently heard. it is j
far from being .prssent in fact at the !
I moment, and few indications are evi- ]
i dent here that there is much prospect j
j of realizing it for the troubled Near i
! East.
Thus far Bolshevik troops in large |
] numbers have not joined the National- :
! ists, but they are watching and have I
ready several divisions for the Turks, |
with a distinct oiier of twelvc. The i
Bolshevik concentratior.s in Bessarabia i

From The Tribune',-- Wash^valon Brreau
WASHINGTON, June 11.?Rear
Admiral William S. Sims, to-day was
peremptorily ordered to return im?
mediately to the United States and
report in person to the Secretary of
the Navy. The ovder was cabled by
Secretary of the Navy Denby.
The failure of Admiral Sims to
reply to Secretary Denby's message
of Wednesday demanding a report
on the accuracy of his speech before
the English-Speaking Union in Lon
don on Tuesday, in which he criti
cized Sinn Fein sympathizers in thia
country, was said by Secretary
Denby to make Admiral Sims's re?
turn home the only aljernative.
In his cablegram Secretary Denby
"Remainder of your leave re
voked. You will return to the
United States immediately and re?
port at once in person to the Sec?
retary of the Navy. Acknowl
Action Awaits Answer
Admiral Sims has not been de
tached from command of the Naval
War College at Newport, to which
he was assigned upon his return to
this country after completing his
duties as commander in chief of the
American naval forces in European
waters during the war. Secretary
Denby indicated to-day that he con
templated no change in Admiral
Sims's status until he had received
from the Admiral a complete state
ment and any justification he might
offer for his apparent failure to re
spond to the previously cabled in?
quiry respecting the accuracy of
published reports of his speech of
last Tuesday.
The order directing the Admiral to
return at once to Washington, Secre?
tary Denby said, was not prceipitated
by the passage of the resolution by the
Senate authorizing an investigation of
Admiral Sims's speech on the Irish
question. Neither was it based on anv
directicn fron* the White House. The
action was deemed necessary by the
Naval Secretary because of his desire
to clear up the incident and to impress
Admiral Sims with the sericusness with
which the Navy Department eonsiders
the remarks he is quoted as making.
Recall Regarded as Rebukc
The drastie inove taken to-day by the
Naval Secretary is regarded in naval
circles as in itself a rebuke. They ex
pressed the belief that it would be fol
lowed by an official reprimand. These
officers assert that the failure of Ad?
miral Sims to reply immediately to the
iirst cabiegram sent by Secretary
Denby might easily be interpreted by
Denby as an affront and constitutea a
breach of discipiine and propriety.
That this view is partly shaied by Sec?
retary Denby was indicated to-day whef
he said that his recent decision to re
voke the "gag" rule in the navy may bt
held up for the time being. Mr. Denbj
desires to remove all restrictiona
against navy men writing for publica
tion if they will file with the departmeDt
a copy of their writing properly signed,
and he has given directions that the
greatest leeway will be given to officers
who deaire to write for publication.
The order, however. has not actually
been promulgated, and Secretary Denby
said it might be necesBary to modify it
in sucli a way as to discourage utter
ances by navy officers which might be
considered intemperate.
It was said to-day at the Navy De?
partment that Admiral Sims would not
be expected to change his announced
plans of returning to this country on
the Olympic. which sai's June 15,
Cabled dispatches from London have
