LEIPZIG, Germany, July 12 (By The
Associated Press).?Two German sub?
marine lieutenants -Ludwig Dittmar

here to-day in the Supreme Court,
charged with murder in tho first degree
for firing on life boats after the tor?

The case differs from the others
which have been heard by the court in
connection with charges growing out
of violations of civilized warfare
in that the proceedings are in be?
half of the German public prosecutor.
Great Britain had only demanded the
trial of Commander Patzig, of the sub?
marine which torpeooed the hospital
ship, who fled the country, but the
prosecutor, after examining the evi?
dence, ordered the trial of Dittmar and
Thirteen British Witnesses
Thirteen British and fifty-two Ger?
man witnesses, including Admiral von
Trotha, former chief of the German
Admiralty, will appear. The British
commission which is watchisg the trial
is headed by Sir Ernest Pollock. A
larger crowd than any which has at?
tended the war crimes trials was pres?
ent to-day.
Lieutenant Dittmar appeared in uni?
form, while Lieutenant Boldt was
dressed in civilian clothes. Both of
thern wore Iron Crosses.
Asked what was his answer to the
charge, Dittmar sullenly refused to j
make reply, finally saying he had S
pledged his word to Commander Patzig]
never to sp^ak about the case. Lieu- |
tenant Boldt pleaded not guilty, adding i
that he was obliged to obey the com- !
mander, "whose word was law," refer- :
ring to the torpedoing of the vessel, ]
but he was silent regarding the charge ?
of firing en the lifeboats.
Tells How Ship Was Sunk
Second Officer Chapman, of the Llan?
dovery Castle, gave an impressive ac?
count of the sinking of the hospital
ship and the subsequent conduct of the
submarine. He said he was ordered,
ander threats of instant death, aboard ?
the submarine, although he pleaded to j
save his comrades who were left to
Chapman then was released in hin ;
lifeboat, but afterward he was re- j
ordered alongside the submarine and I
questioned whether the Llandovery !
Castle carried ammunition, which he
denied. One of the German officers ;
charged the ship had eirrht American i
faying officers aboard. To this Chap- ]
man said he replied that they were ?
larrxty service corps officers.
The lifeboat again was released, after
which, declared the witness, the sub?
marine repeatedly attempted to ram it,
but he escaped, whereupon the sub?
marine fired fourteen shell?, two of
them passing over the lifeboat.
.Chapmen said he saw a British sailor

Czecho-Slovakia Revolt
Plot Laid to Beia Kun
Millions in Cash and Diamonds !

BERLIN, July 12.?A sensation has
been caused in Czecho-Slovakia by the
exposure of a plot, engineered from
Moscow, for a Bolshevik revolution in
Czecho-Slovakia, according to advices
received here. The expose was made
by Kucherer, a former Communist, who
until recently occupied a prominent
place in the council? of the Russian
Bolshevik government. After a break
with L?nine he returned to Prague, a
member of the Right Wing of the
Czech-Slovak Socialist party.
According to Kucherer, Bela Kun sont
5,000,000 crowns and thirty-nine of his
most precious diamonds to Czecho?
slovakia. They had been appropriated
by the Soviet government for propa?
ganda work in that country. The
money, according to Kucherer, was
supposed to be used to buy up hesi?
tating Socialist and labor leaders, as
well as newspapers.
Bela Kun instructed the Czecho?
slovak delegate? to the congress of the
Third Internationale in Moscow to
start a revolution in their country as
soon ar- possible and promised them ad?
ditional funds if these were necessary.
According to Kucherer, Bela Kun told
tho Czech delegates that C:'.echo-Slo
vaaia was entirely an artificial state
and ought to be wiped off the face of
the map of Europe.
Kucherer'* expose comes after simi?
lar revelations by Friedrich Adler, the
Austrian Socialist, who charged recent?
ly that the Bolsheviki had been seeking
to corrupt Austrian workers and So?
cialists by a general distribution of
gold, with tho object of establishing a
Ted regime in Austria.
Soviet Note Irritates Pole?
Fiery Countercharges Made to
Russian Demands
LONDON, July 112.-Fiery counter?
charges by the Poles in what'is ascribed
as one of the strongest examples of
diplomatic correspondence ever ex
ehanged between two countries at
peace, have resulted from a Bote ad?
dressed to Poland by the Russian Bol?
shevik Foreign Minister, M. Chitchcrin,
regarding alleged anti-Bolshevik orgr.ryr
izations* activities in Poland, says a
Warsaw dispatch to The London Timos.
The Narody of Warsaw compares the
Russian note to the Austrian ultimatum
to Serbia.
According to the dispatch, M. Chit
cherin'3 note demands, among other
things, the expulsion from Poland of all
Russians hostile to Bolshevism and tho
disarming of detachments alleged to
have been formed by the Polas air.on;;
the Russian troops to fight communism.

That the soda water tax ig a joke,!
so far as governmental returns are
concerned, is generally agreed by the |
Federal authorities here. Federal field j
agents are particularly active now in;
seeking to check up on this tax. They |
have found that in only a small per- ?
centage of places are books kept, the \
proprietor in many cases collecting the !
tax from the public and giving the gov- ?
ernment what he pleases.
Mr. Edwards says the present in?
vestigation imp been broadened to take
in certain moving* picture theaters,
suspectcel of withholding taxes in the
same manner. United States Attorney ;
Ilayward has requested the immediate
arrest of those responsible for mulct?
ing the government and that the of-!
fenders be convicted without delay.
Cheating, in the qpinion of Mr. nid-I
wards, is almost entirely confined to |
the smaller placen of business. The |
larger concerns are giving the govern- !
ment very little trouble, he said, and
as a rule there is no fault to find with
their remittances or their methods of
bookkeeping. Nor i.; there any trouble
with the larger theaters, Ke said.
'.'It is a great problem to catch the |
offender," said Mr. Edwards. "After
they are caught it is even more diffi?
cult to prove that they defrauded thro
government willfully. We have found
caaes w.hore proprietors of business es?
tablishments kee'p two sets of books,
one to show the government inspectors
and one for their own record. Falsifi?
cation of record.; 13 the strongest evi
denc ' we can offer for the conviction
of those persons.
"Mr. Siegel is right when he says
the aoda water tax is a jolee. Probably |
not one-tenth, or even one-twentieth, of
those taxes ever find their way into the
United States Treasury. Here, again,
the larger, more reputable dealers are |
doing the right thing by the govern
in e n t.
"We are making a canvass of all
places suspected of defrauding the
government, and before this drive is
over we expect to have landed some
of them where they belong -behind
the bars."
Within the last few days, Mr. Ed?
wards sr.id, several large concerns sell?
ing toilet and medicinal articles have
been required to pay substantial sums
for failing to affix war tax stamps to
these articles.

BERLIN, July 12. Gravo and wide?
spread hunger riots are sweeping the
central provinces of Russia, accord- I
ing to information reaching here I
from authentic, sources. The situation !
is particularly serious in the upper
Volga rogion.
Hungry mobs of peasants, with their
vives and children, are moving about
? he stricken provinces demanding food,
in many places the peasants aro seiz?
ing fields and stock belonging to trio
more fortunate sections of the popula?
The Soviet government Is striving
desperately to calm the panic-stricken
population with proclamations and
promises. The whole situation in
the upper Volga is terrible beyond
description. According to the I'/.vesfa
there is n shortage of 100,000,000
poods of bread. This newspaper de?
clares that all the cattle in the Volga
region, as well as in southern Russia,
are in grave danger of extinction be?
cause of lack of fodder.
Petrograd Suffering
While the commissariat on foreign
trade announces that no foodstuffs can
be bought from Armenia and northern
Persia for the relief of the starving
population until fall, the Soviet gov?
ernment has ordered its representa?
tives in western Europe to buy up
foodstuffs in the greatest quantities
possible for the relief of the cities
in northern Russia, especially Petro
srrad and Moscow, where tn? iooet
crisis is more acute than at any
period in the last four years.
The Pravda writes that "the de?
struction of crops in a whole series of
provinces threatens the Sovietrepublic
with trials hitherto unknown.''
"This famine," it continues, "will
not only bring hunger to millions of
people, but it will have a catnstrophic
effect on our entire cattle industry.
There is absolutely no feed for the
cattle in Hie Don region, or the Sta?
vropol-Kuban rorjions. The cattle must
inevitably perish this winter."
Such is the tragic picture of the suf-j
ferings of the Russian people in the
destruction of Russia's economic life
as painted by the Soviet press.
An official of a Scandinavian diplo
matic mission to Moscow, who passed
through Berlin from Russia to-day,
told tno Tribune correspondent that
the peasant hunger riots were being led :
by demobilized Red army men who had !
returned to their villages, taking rifles,
machine suns and ammunition with |
them. According to The Tribune's;
informant, the hunger riots are assura- I
ing the proportions of a grand upris- I
ing, threatening the overthrow of the
Soviet government. It was the opinion ]
of this official that the Soviet govern?
ment would not last more than three
Official reports published in the
Pravda support the story of suffering
brought by the Scandinavian diplomat.
>r,"'i-il'r" to *his Bolshevik newspaper,
2.",,000,000 Russians already are!
in the throes of the famine, un-;
rre.cedented in all Russia's history, and
that men, women and children are
walking around looking like ghosts, in
search of bread. The situation is par?
ticularly critical in UfTa, Tsaritsin,
Saratoff, Samara, Simbirsk, Viatka,
Perm and Kazan provinces as well as
the region embraceel in the northern
Cauca "??S; Many thousand1? am fleeing
into Siberia and acros3 the Ural.
The Bolshevik government, in its
desperate efforts to alleviate the suf?
fering, has permitted the formation of
an emergency relief committee in Mos?
cow containing representatives of the
bourgeoisie. Among the members of
the committee are tho noted cadet !
Kishkin, formerly a member of the pro
visional government; Propokovitch,
former nvnister of trade and commerce
in the Kerensky cabinet, and many '
other men and women prominent i'< j
the revolution prior to the Bolshevik i
r?gime. Thanks to the intercession of !
Maxim Gorky, the committee will work j
independently. It intends to appeal to j
the world for aid to save millions of
Russians from the pangs of death this j
summer. :
It is feared now that Moscow itself I
may bo in the throes of complete fam- ?
inc by the middle of July.

BELFAST, July 22 (By The Asso?

Premier, discussing in a speech at
Finaghy to-day his reasons for ac?
cepting Lloyd George's invitation to a
conference in London, said:
"First, if we did not go to the con?
ference we would be misrepresented
behind our backs. We would have no?
body to say a word for us.
"Second, we a,-e a small community
on the face of the earth, and foreign
countries, as well as our own domin- i
ions, would misconstrue Ulster if she
stepped aside. She wouicr be con?
demned in her absence and told 'you
would not go to the conference, there?
fore you must be ruled out of court.'
"Third, it Kets into the minds, even
of some of our friends, that we have

nothing to give away. Therefore, while

Premier was the fact that it would

Sir James said he had tested the
minds and feelings of people worth
