Munsey to-day before the Senate sub-commlt-tce investigating tho paper scarcity. Mr. Munsey told the committee that wiles? there Is restriction on use of paper and (systematic reforestation there will bo no paper producing for is.tR left In another twenty-ftvo years. Ho urged legislative restriction on the tizt of newspapers, especially of the "Jumbo Sunday newspapers," declar ing the restriction could never be ac complished through cooperation among the publishers. William It. Hearst in a letter to the rommlttee presented a similar view. ' The blame Is entirely with the news paper publishers, -who are consuming: paper as a rule quite recklessly and .without good business Judgment," wrote Mr. Hearst. Both publishers agreed that news papers must bo smaller; that adver tising space must be reduced and cir culation restricted. Both Insisted that they ask the application of no pro gramme to other businesses that they are not willing to apply and Indeed al ready aro applying in, their; own. -nednctloa of C6mstIosw Mr. Munsey said his publishing bull r.ess, including Tub Son And New YosK Herald, Thb Eyxnino Sux and the Kicning Telegram, the Baltimore News, European tdltlon of Tub Nrw Tork Herald and iunV', the Argosy and the .411 Storv magazines ought to have 80.000 tons of print annually "to run with full individual liberty and regard to of burning up the country's for est. 1 Through necessity these publica tions have reduced consumption by bout 30,000 tons.' When the price of jot paper reached 12 cents Mr. Munsey idopted the policy of buying none and, conforming the publications to the con tracted supplies of paper.

That company In December i fated deliveries under Its construction of the clause of readjustment of prices. "The paper question," said Mr. Mun e "serious as It is, Is yet more a motion of the future and of statesman, ship than of the present emergency.

"Every man views the problem of i tvhat he hall print, the stxe, number of pages. &c, In his newspaper ,as puiw personal. Cooperation covering tne country la utterly Impossible. It would be Impossible to procure cooperation to reduce the paper consumption In New Tork by half, but that ought to oe none. 1 would be willing to do It If coopera tion could be had." 'But some consumers would refuse nd ko on consuming excessively for iheir own advantage and to occupy the field-' suggeted Senator Reed. Mr. Munsey assented. Kah local field, competitive within Itself, mutt bo dealt with by Itself," con tinued Mr. Munsey. "New Tork and Chicago newspapeia do not compete; New York would not be influenced by the size of Chicago newspapers. They an be as big as they like and not hurt us, save as their consumption would reduce the general stock of paper. Each Point must be regulated by Itself." Regulation by Increasing or with drawing the second class mall right for larger newapapers, Mr. Slunsey said, would ba ineffective. "From 95 to 98 per cent. .of New Tork newspapers do not go In the malls," he explained. "They aro sold in and within fifty mile of the city, sent 'by jprcss, &o.

Hays, chair man of tho Republican national committee,, and other 'politicians had conferred with Senator Boles Penrose to-day in his homo here, the Pennsylvania Republican lender was .interviewed on the national campaign. The inter view brought out these points; 1 -Senator Penrose questions the sanity of any man who is for Herbert Hoover for President. 2 Senator James E. Watson (Indiana) is "mentioned promi nently" as chairman of the resolutions committee for the Republican national convention. 3 Tho Knox "boom" for President is" not a boom at all, but "just an expression that Knox would make a good Presi dent," tho expression coming from Senator Penrose. FIVE DEMOCRATS FOR PEACE PLAN Belief That Others of Minority Will Filibuster Against Resolution. THEY MAY PREVENT VOTE Senator Knox's Speech on "Wednesday May Outline His Yiows on Platform. S fecial to Tin Szn ajvd Nr. it Toik UttAlD. Washington, May 1. At least Ave Democratic Senators will vote for the Knox (Pa.) resolution declaring peace with Germany and Austria, and only one Republican will vote against it, according to polls made to-day. The five Democrats are Gore (Okla.), Shields (Tenn.). Reed (Mo.). Walsh (Mass.) and Myers (Mont.1. Tho one Republican is McCumber (N. D.). All other Republicans are expected to sup port and all other Democrats to op pose the measure. Desplto the assurance that there Is a comfortable majority for the resolu tion, its stock went down to-day be cause of persistent reports that the Democrats, under Instructions from tho White House, will not permit a vote to be reached. It was declared they will filibuster agatnst Us- con sideration, desiring to save the Presi dent from the embarrassment of having to veto it. The prospect of a real fight de cidedly revived Interest In the resolu tion. It has been viewed wlt'.i mild concern heretofore because of the as surance that tho President would veto it and that It could not possibly be adopted over the veto. Also Senator Hitchcock (Neb.), who will have charge of the Democratic fight, has said that ho expected only a short discussion, then the resolution's adoption and then a prompt ;yeto. But to-day's Information Is that If there has not been definite determina tion on a change of programme, the change is likely to be made. It was asserted that In the process of their opposition the Democrats would offer the treaty of Versailles, with the Lodge reservations, as a substitute, and try to force the Republicans to vote against the .Lodge reservations. This procedure has been threatened repeatedly, but It is said by parliamentarians that though it looks clever at first blush. It hasn't a chance. ' For, it is explained, the resolution de claring peace Is plain legislation, con sidered in legislative session, under the rules governing ordinary legislation, whereas the treaty must be considered In executive session, under different rules. It Is recognized that If the administra tion Democrats desire 'they easily can prevent a vote. The treaty has been talked about re's, of the time for a year, and everybody Is primed fo- un limited, conversation about it wnenever occasion requires. Quite independently Sens tor Smith (Ga.) Introduced to-day a brief bill to repeal all the war legislation. It is not Intended as a substitute for the Knox resolution, but represents benator Smith's Idea that the country Is more concerned to get this legislation wiped out than to restore technical peace. The Republicans wouia db very wiuuit n n. tha reneal bill If they knew they could not make peace. Its passage would be a creditable legislative act, while Its veto by the President would be a bit o good fortune for the Republicans, so nw that they hardly dare believe the Presi dent might favor them with It.

KNOX LOOMING AS BIG FACTOR ING10P1RACE Political Prophets Make Him One of Favorites for Presidency. NEAR CENTRE OF STAGE He Virtually Displaces Lowden, Who Was 'Best Bet' for Three Bays. FRIENDLY WITH JOHNSON Interest Centres on Pennsyl vaninn's Speech, Wednes day on Party Policy. Special to Ins Sc ad New Yokk tsjAr.u Washington', May 1. Senator Hil lander C. Knox (Penn.) to-day stepped Into tho limelight near tho centre of the Republican Presidential stage, lie became one of the favorites with the political prognostlcators on the strength of the pronouncement in h!? favor by Senator Penrose (Penn.), in Philadelphia yesterday. But the truth Is that for several weeks he had been looming more and more as a possible contender. Senator Penrose merely pressed the button that closed the cir cuit and turned on the light. To-night, whllo there Is a variety of opinion on the precise motive of the Penrose statement, and while some of Senator Knox's friends fear It was a little premature from the standpoint of unalloyed Interest In Senator Knox's nomination, there Is no question that the Knox movement lias taken doflnlte form, to tho disadvantage of some other candidates. The campaign Is Just now In a state of nervous uncertainty wherein shifts and changes may result from seem ingly minor causes. But several things are pretty plain and the leader? recognize them. One Is that nobody Is going to Chicago with a majority of delegates. Another Is that tho fight between Wood and Johnson has been so bitter and personal that neither is likely to compound with the other. Still further, the politicians of the party do not intend that Johnson shall be nominated, and even the most de voted supporters of Johnson have recognised freely that he is much handicapped by the determined char acter of this opposition. I.oirdrn la Bronffht to Front. For just three days Gov. Lowden of Hllr.nU) was Washington's best bet Those three days started with last Wednesday when returns from New Jer sey mado "clear that wlillo Major-Gen. Wood probably had caviled Hie State he had not a solid delegation and the result wis so close that It could not be claimed a a real victory. This was heralded as meaning that Wood was out of It, while Johnson. was not In it because, It was Insisted, only an overwhelming popular vote for him in New Jersey could have put him at the front. So, seeking the compromisn candidate on whom all ele ments might meet, the political special lits took up Lowden. Harding was left ouj because of his failure to get a solid Ohio support. Wood, it was calculated, had gained too few volts by his Incursion Into Ohio to be of much use, while he 'had won the undying hostility of the Harding people. Altogether Lowden looked most hopeful. lttit all tha time Knox was in the background. It Is a fact that he Is the second choice of almost all the Johnson people In Washington. That is true of the Johnson group in the Senate and of most of them In the House ai well as outside Congress. It Is based on the fact that Johnson and Knox' have been closely associated as Irreconcilable op ponents of the treaty; an association that In tho last year has been respon sible for many curious bedfellowshlps ond that really has done muon to estab lish better understanding. Inside the Re publican party, among men who for merly would have been at political an tipodes. Warm Political Friends. Aside from this Johnson and Knox are the warmest of personal friends. Several days ago some persons talked to Senator Knox about his possible can didacy. He laughingly said that It no body was more worried about the nomi nation than he the Chicago convention would be a lovo feast, and then he en tered on a little eulogy of Johnson. Tlie Johnson eople concede to Knox Just the same three day period of un questioned premiership that they admit Lowden enjoyed. They close the week confident of carrying Indiana on Tues day and hopeful, though not so confi dent, of carrjlng Maryland on Monday. If they fall In both those States they will be ready to discuss alternatives to Johnson. Partly because of personal relations between Knox and Johnson, partly be cause It Is a case of "when East meets West," discussion of Knox as leader connotes .consideration of Johnson for second place. It can be said with a good de' of confidence that there Is nothing. In such suggestions. Senator Johnson will not leave tho position of power he holds on tho Senate floor for that of presiding officer. All his friends agree on that They do not believe he 'would take second placo and do not want him to do so. If he did It would be the result of Knox's earnest wishes and as proof of his unqualified loyalty to the ticket and party. With the feeling ripe that Wood has passed the zenith of his strength, the politicians begin at. once to seek, out signs of disintegration in his forces. They are discussing whether be ever will have as many votes, after the first Cttttlnvti on NMUenth Ptg. POLISH ARMY NEARS KIEV; TWO RED DIVISIONS CUT OFF Cavalry in Outskirts of Ukrainian Capital and Infantry Coming Up Rapidly. II tf tlx Atiociated Preu. Warsaw, Slay 1, Polish cavalry is reported to havo reached the outskirts of Kiev, capital of the Ukraine. The infantry Is roportcd to he coming up rapidly toward Kiev. The Bolshevik command nas been moved eastward to Kharkov. Tho newspapers pay a glow ing tribute to the cavalry's leading part in the offensive. In several in stances tho cavalry divisions aro two days in advance of tho Infantry. Trie Seventieth and Forty-fourth Hed divisions have been cut off from the main forces by tho Polish lancers and are now hemmed in in tho region of Berdlcheff and Zhitomir, but nro raid to be. desperately trying to fight their way eastward. Intercepted wireless orders, pub lished here to-day, show that Trotssky BILL FOR BONUS TO BE MODIFIED Goes Back to Committee Ow ing: tV Weight of Objection to Tax It Imposes. EAHLY ACTION UNLIKELY Planks of Party Platforms May Be Used as Guide in Redrafting: Measure. Special to Tas Sen a.vd Niw Touk Hnii.u. Washington, May 1. The soldier bonus bill reported yesterday by tho House Ways and Means' Committee It to undergo important revisions in tho committee next week, as the result of the storm of opposition that greeted It at the Republican caucus last night. Whether any bill of this kind can bo passed at the present sesilon of Congress now appears very doubtful. As oon as ono change in tho pending measure is suggested uew opposition bobs up, and many members aro fat coming to tho conclusion that it may be better to risk losing some soldier votes than to face tho protests of the majority of the American people at this time. The whole fight centres around tha revenue provisions, althoush tonslder able objection is being raised to the land settlement features of tho measure. It now seems probable that in revising the bill the Ways and Means Commltteo will eliminate the 1 per cent, tax on retail sales which was to ralso more than half of the money necessary to carry out the soldier bonus programme. What.levles will take Us place and raise $400,000,001) the sales tax would yiflld no one seems to know. Just at that point the whole revenue fight comeA to the front again. Representative Fordney (Mich.), chairman of the Ways and Means Com mittee, said to-day that.he had no Idea when the new bill would be completed. He expects to be away from Washing ton next week and It Is probable that the levlscd measure will not be- ready for action before May 15. It Is virtually certain that no bonus bill will bo passed through both Houses before the recess In Juno for the na tional conventions. If action Is taken during tho summer It probably will re sult from planks on the subject that will appear In the party platforms. Democrats aro still Insisting that they will vote for a bonus bill only If It hu3 a heavy retroactive tax on war profits. One plan now being suggested for pa cifying tlie opposition Is to extend the Increased taxes of Jl.564,000,000 that weie proposed In the original bill over a piriod of three years Instead of two. This would mako necessary the exten sion of the quarterly cash bonus pay ments over a period of two years In stead of one. The whole programme of soldier bonus was denounced to-day by Representative Pell (X. V.) as a plan that threatened the life and welfare of the nation. "Of course I shall vote for the most generous treatment possible for men In jured In the servlco of the United States and also for propef care of the depend ents of those men who have been killed, but I cannot bring myself merely for consideration of political advantage to vote for a bill which would Impose a tax of Vd a head on every man, woman and child In the country." 'BLUEBEARD' TO HELP FIND WIFE'S GRAVE Repeats Confession and Hopes He Will Be Believed. Los Angeles, May 1. Walter Andrew Watson, who Is alleged to have married a icore of women and confessed that four of them died violent deaths, pro tested to-day to the police that h had told them the truth as to the location of the grave of Mlna Lee Deloney, with whose murder he Is charged. ' "I hooe you will believe me." he said to tho men who have been searching In vain for the grave In a desolate portion of eastern San Diego county.

ROBBERS POLITE TO OLD LADIES One Joins Tlicm at Luncheon While Other Plunders the House. TKUSS UP THE ..ICEMAN Seem to Regard Him as Fellow Professional, Nevertheless Take His Roll. Elk Peterson, a maid employed In the home of Mrs. C. H. DIckinton, at North Bergen, N". J., was interrupted In lier service of luncheon Just after noon yesterday by the pounding of the old brass knocker on the front door. At Mrs. Dickinson's nod she hurried to. the door, leaving her mistress and the'latter's mother, Mrs. K. C. Thomas, aged 03; her mother-in-law, Mrs. Alonzo Dickinson", aged 91. and the lattcr's sister-in-law, Mrs. C. G. Thomas, aged 71. The nged women were so busy talking thoy didn't hear tho frightened HttU scream given by Ella as she opened the door. The door of the dining room opened softly and Ella walked in followed by two young men, each of whom carried a revolver. "There's nothing to fear, ladies," said one of them. "Vo-i Just sit quiet and go right on chatting, and don't bother with w. My friend will look around ths house, If you don't mind " The speaker seated himself at the table, motioning to Ulla that she might go on serving the luncheon from the sideboard. For half an hour he sat there exchanging remarks with the thne elderly ladles and the hastes. He had rested his big revolver beside his plate, partly covering It with a napkin. And whllo he chatted on In a most refined manner his pal rummaged around upstairs and collected $100 in cash and Jewelry worth five times that amount. Eventually he came down to the dining room and apologized for the delay. He joked, In a way with which even old Mrs. Thomas could find no fault, over the clever hiding places he had uncovered upstairs. "And now, ladles, we will go," he tola the four at the table, "First, of course, we must take a few little precautions." He took the four big, old fashioned napklni being used at the luncheon, and with the help of his polite pal lied Mrs. Dickinson and her mother and the two other guests each to her chair. With bows and apologies both men then stepped out of the room, letting Ella walk before them. As they stirtcd through the rear door they mt the ice man. They trussed him up 'with a bit of clothesline. "And this." said tlie taller burglar, to the Iceman as ho lifted his roll, "is our apology to a publio long unable to dis cover any Justification for our profes sion." It was the Iceman who, after he had worked himself free of the clothesline, released the four women In tho dining room. Later neither' he nor they were able to describe the burglars accurately to the police. "But I think I would know the voice of one of them again," said the Iceman, repeating the burglar's remark about the Justification of his profession. And then he asked the policemen It they could make head or tall of what tlie burglar said. .

Setting a new major league record, the Brooklyn and Boston clubs of tho National League this afternoon fought twenty-six In nlngs to n tie, at 1 to 1. Darkness forced a cessation of hostilities after three hours and twenty minutes of play. The record of twenty-six inning! displaces that of twenty-four Innings set In this city on September 1, 1008. when thp Philadelphia Athletics dc featcd tho Boston Americans by 4 to 1, The previous duration record in the National League was twenty-two Brooklyn figured In that game, tco, defeating Pittsburg by ,6 too on August !:', 131", nt Ebbcts Field. The performance of to-day tied the record for all professional baseball, as the Decatur and Bloomlngjon clubs of the Three I League went twenty-six Innings In. May, 1009. before Decatur won by to 1. In addition to equalling the Decatur Bloomtngton record tho game tied an other' mark of a major lcaguet char acter. Brooklyn scored in the flft'.t and Boston tallied In. tho sixth, after which there wero twenty scorelea Itmlncs. This distinctive fcaturs first was recorded in tlto, game betweep Boston and -Pittsburg on September 1, 1918, when Pittsburg won by '.' to 0 in the twenty-first Inning. When Umpire McCormlck called the gamo this evening It was so dark that tho players had difficulty in following the ball. Ivan Olson of Brooklyn im plored him to allow ono more Inning to be played. The official refused, and when the tired players ran off the field the 2,000 fans who saw, the great contest gave them an ovation. Leon Cadore pitched the entire game for Brooklyn, and his opponent on uie mound all tho way was Joe ocscnger. Tho two right banders gavo a most re markable exhibition of pitching. Oesch rfor allowed only nine singles and in no inning were two safo blows recoraeu. Cadore. in the early trames, was uu rather freely. Eleven ot the fifteen hits which he allowed were made In the first nine uesslons. It was a tenso battle, replete with thrilling plays, and with the remarkable' pitching of Oeschger, standing' out in bold relief at nil stages of the test. Only twice did Brooklyn runners reach third base-in the fifth, In which tin Dodges got their score, and again In the seventeenth Inning, which, of course, produced no tally.

The Brooklyns scored their single ruo of the contest In the fifth inning. Krue ger, who at that stage of the game was doing the catching for the visitors, led oft with a base on balls. Cadore was tossed out Olson followed with a single over Maranvllle's head and Krueger crossed the platb. Olson was at bat ten times and that proved to be his only hit of the game.

But for this force there would have been a total suspen sion of public- servlco, but, as It 'was, many rode in comfort, though at times the buses and trams were stoned.

In Carnegie Hall Arnold Volpe's ex cellent orchestra alternated with numer ous speakers to tho entire satisfaction of 2,000 members of 'tho Amalgamarid Clothing Workers of -America. -It was an affluent looking crowd given to spring furs and smart, looking trlcotjuei, serges and homespuns.

Figuring that a meeting with a .name liko that ought to develop political rabies of some sort, Department of Justice men as well as policemen strolled up to obtain a bit ot first hand information. It started out quite well by the singing of "Tho Internationale," the words of which only a few knew.
