Great Britain's peace celebration began Informally to day with many ceremonies, most of which were in honor of Oen. John J. Pershing and the American troops, who will participate In the victory parade to morrow. A large part of the population slopped work to-day and f.'lled the parks and streets, watching the many con tingent of American, British and allied soldiers and Bailors marching about and the processions headed by Oen. Tershlng and Marshal Foch of Franch on their way to various functions In their honor. It was chiefly an American day. Oen.

Pershing delivered an address of thanks for the honors given him. After the presentation of the sword Oen. Pershing went to the MansionHouse, where he again responded to calls for a speech when he appeared on the bal cony above a square crowded with peo ple. He was accompanied by Sir Horace Marshall, the Lord Mayor of London, and the Mayor's staff. A luncheon given In the Mansion House was attended by 300. There were addresses by the Lord Mayor, Winston Spencer Churchill, the War Secretary, Gen. Pershing and John W. Davis, Am bassador to Great Britain.

Davis, the American Ambas dor, the Kmbassy staff, Rear Admiral Harry S. Knapp and his staff, members of the British Government and a num ber of British Generals were participants In the ceremony at Guild Hall. Gen. Pershing was applauded by the crowds that had gathered when he made his entry into the city, where the guilds and the aldermen In their customary welcoming robes lent a picturesque as pect to the scene. The General found a company of the Orenadler Guards, with Its hand, drawn up In the yard. He Inspected the Guards and then entered the hall and was con ducted to the dais, where he was greeted by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress. After Gen. Pershing had been greeted by the Lord Mayor. Blr.Horace B. Marshall, and the Lady Mayoress, the Towti Clerk, Sir James Bell, read the resolution of the corporation authorlxlng the presen tations. The City Chamberlain. Adrian D. W. Pollock, then turned to (Jen. I'er Fhlng and delivered his formal address. "It Is now nine years," said the Chamberlain, "since the corporation of this ancient city welcomed In this hall Theodore Roosevelt, and It Is a happy circumstance that the next ceremony of precisely the same character Bhould be one In which another great American Is the honored guest of the city the gal lant commander of the American Expe ditionary Forces, a soldier whose char acter and qual'ttes were recognized and appreciated by no one so quickly as by Col. Roosevelt." Mr. Pollock continued his tribute by sketching Gen. Pershing's military life, adding: "We do not forget the loyal and ef fective cooperation of the American sailors nor the magnificent material as sistance given by America to tho cause of the Allies, but in the presence of their Trusted leader It Is natural to remember especially the American soldiers who came through with a reputation second to none." Persklna; Answers Tributes. In replying to the address of the Chamberlain Oen. Pershing said : "With deep emotion I have listened to tho words of welcome and compliments far more generous than my services merit- To follow after the great Amer ican. Theodore Roosevelt, In receiving tho freedom of the city, Is an unusual distinction. "In a sense, this occasion Is memo rable, because It testifies to the sincerity of the sentiments you bear us. We profoundly appreciate those sentiments, beep use we Interpret them by the feelings of our own hearts. Our common ances tors fought for human rights." Gen. Pershing paid a tribute to Field Marshal Half, Admiral Sir David Beatty and their men of the British army and navy, and continued : "We came abroad to maintain the sacred principles of liberty, which au tocracy and militarism had threatened. Those things were as near and dear to us as they were to you. You have been fighting our cause as well as the cause of mankind. Out of this Intimate association has arisen a new spirit of comradeship. "It is our hope that the two great nations may now act In common In achieving new successes during the years of peace to come and in the enjoy ment of those blessings which our com mon sacrifices have won for us." The Oeneral ended by thanking the lxrd Mayor for the honors bestowed upon him. The occasion of the presentation of the sword of honor to Gen. Pershing marked the anniversary of the beginning of the allied drive which brought Ger many to her knees on November 11. The Germans attacked the Allies In the Marnc salient on July 15, 1918, but three days later Marshal Foch counter attacked with large forces, Including several American divisions, and the Initiative gained by the Allies on that day was never lost up to the end of hostilities sword Is of Elaborate Daalgra.

For the flist time In the history of Alabama con victions and pleas of guilty were en tered In a lynching case In which a white man was the victim of a mob when to-day in the Baldwin County Court two men were convicted of com plicity In the murder and given peni tentiary sentences, while twenty-eight other members of the same band entered pleas of guilty. Ten of- those pleading guilty were given fines or sentences to hard labor, while the cases of the other eighteen will be taken up when court reconvenes Monday. The case was that of Frank Foukal, who was shot to death in his cell in Jail, where he was being held on a charge of murder. Local authorities Immediately began seeking those responsible for the crime, with the result that more than thirty persons were arrested. The con victions and pleas of guilty came to-day. only a few weeks after the attack took place. Sim Andrew and Louis Bishop, the two men convicted, were given peniten tiary sentences of ten and fifteen years respectively. One other was acquitted on a plea of Insanity and a fourth was adjudged Insane before coming to trial. The fines given ten of those pleading guilty ranged from $100 to $1,000, while others received both fines and sentences of six months at hard labor. $2,000,000 TO SON'S WIFE. Mrs. Grace Rarsnonds's Fortane Mar at Be Used for His Debts. Special Deepatch to Taa Si v Stamford, Conn , July 18. Mrs. Oracc C. Raymond, wife of James I. Raymond, deceased founder and owner of A. A. Vantlno and Company, New York, be queathed practically her entire estate to Mrs. Maude H. Raymond, the wife of her only child, Irving K. Raymond, In trust. Mrs. Raymond directs that the trust estate Is not to be subject In any way to any debts of her son. One hundred thousand dollars Is set aside to secure income to relatives. The amount of the estate Is given as about $2,000,000. Mrs. Raymond, the textatrix, was a Miss Ad ams of Boston. She wts a descendant of President John Qulncy Adama Speaker Glllett referred the message to the Military and Naval Committees for consideration. The names of Admirals Sims and Ben son were received approvingly, tioth these naval officers having won general esteem. Irrespective of political parties in Congress. Representative Kahn (Cal.), chairman .of the House Military Affairs Committee, stated the President's recom mendations would be considered next week and Representative Butler (Pa.), chairman of the Naval Affairs Commit tee, plans to consider tho naval officers' rank shortly thereafter. Mr. Kahn did not comment on the army recommenda tions, but Mr. Butler stated he believed there would be little objection to grant ing the naval promotions. March Honor In Dossl. Whether there will be a fight waged against the promotion of Gen. March Is open to doubt. The President's recom mendation Is purposely so worded as to give Pershing precedence over March. It reads : I take the liberty of calling your attention to a matter which I am sure Is at the heart of the whole country, and which I have had very much In mind throughout all these months when we were trying to ar range a peace that would be worthy of the spirit and achievements of the men who won the victory In the field and on the sea. After mature reflection. I earnestly recommend that you give the perma nent rank of General to John J. Ter shlng and Peyton C. March, express - Ing the law In such a way as to give precedence to Gen. Pershing ; and that you give the permanent raik of Ad miral to William S. Benson and Will lam 8. Sims. I take It for granted that I am only anticipating your own thought In proposing these honors for the men upon whom the principal re sponsibilities devolved for achieving the great results which our Incom parable navy and army accomplished. Whatever friction has existed between Pershing and March may be partly smoothed over. It Is believed, by this signal recognition of 1'crFhlng's services: ahead of those of March. But the upii sitlon to Gen. MHrch in Congress Is not due to any differences the Chief of Staff may have had with Oen. l'ershtn, but to differences he has had with Congress. The majority, Democrats as well as Re publicans, do not like Gen. March or his methods. They resent what they de scrlbe as his autocratic, dictatorial meth ods in dealing with Congress and In his general dealings with his subordinates. There Is a long ltst of specific Incidents they hold again Gen. March, chief of I these being ' His treatment of Major-Gen Crow der after the latter had successfully completed the draft for the Nutlonal Army. His public critii Isms of action by Congress on various occasions. His alleged attempts to conceal army shortcomings Instead of facing facts brought out by Congressional Investigation. His so-called favoritism shown to certain officers to the discomfiture of others. Baker shielded. Say flame. These criticisms have not been shared In by all and Gen. March nas had and still has some stanch defenders at the Capitol. They say many of the arts for which the Chief of Staff has been criticised were really acts of the Secre tary' of War and that Gen. March merely acted as Mr. Baker's mouthpiece In the performance of his duty. On the other hand there are many who contend that It was really Oen. March who directed and Mr. Baker who acquiesced. But apart from these criticisms and efforts at defence for the Chief of Staff, the main point which is likely to be stressed Is, whether Oen. March really proved himself an unsual leader In the war and rendered service so far superior to the service scores of Generals In the field, that he should be signally honored by Congress. In this connection there are some in e.'ongresa who contend that Gen. March had really little opportunity to render distinguished service, as the war was directed entirely by Oen. Pershing, while Oen. March occupied himself with minor details having little or no bearing on the big struggle over seas. It Is probable that Administration leaders will seek to stave off any fight over Gen. March by using suasion before the matter comes up. TO HALT BOND SMUGGLING. to 1'rcveat Germany to Check All Shipment. Bp the Aeeodatei Print t.i u aii, July is. The Government la planning an emergency law which would provide for the stamping and dat ing of all securities now within the con fines of Germany Old Point Comfort, Va.. July 18. Riding at anchor In barely t lslble lines off here to-night more than two score ships of the new Pacific fleet, Admiral Hugh Rodman commanding, awaited the signal that will ret them moving to morrow on the road to home waters in the Pacific Ocean. Admiral Rodman had set 8:30 A. M. as his sailing time. The whole annada will be In motion at that time not to stop again until the eastern approach to the Panama Canal Is reached. The fleet assembled here to-day was I an Imposing spectacle. The eight super- dreadnoughts. Including the three most modern and powerful craft of the navy now In full commission, were anchored In two lines. Admiral Rodman's flag ship, the New Mexico, was close In to the landing stage, heading one column, with his four starred blue flag fluttering lailly at the main truck. The Wyoming, flagship of tho second division of battle ships, headed the second column. In the third line, strechlng away for miles across the roadstead, lay the destroyers, twenty-flve of which will lead the way to sea to-morrow when the signal Is given. Three armored cruisers, the battleship Minnesota, colliers, supply ships, de stroyer mother ships and other auxiliary craft were anchored with the fleet. They also nre part of the Pacific fleet as are other pre-dreadnaughts and seventy-nine other destroyers now at various Atlan tic yards. By the end of September Capt Twining. Admiral Rodman's chief of staff, said to-day, all but the re serve destroyers to be held In the At lantic pending development of facilities for their care In the Pacific, will have Joined the main force In the Pacific. There WRI little stir or excitement tG day marking the great undertaking about to be commenced : that of transfer ring more than half a million tons of fighting ships and their auxiliaries and 80,000 officers and men to the Pacific Ocean. At the "Beach" barges. gigs and motor sailers were coming and going all day and far into the night. The shift ing groups of officers, bluejackets and marines appeared no more excited than If their sailing orders were for New York or Guantanamo. The navy -has grown accustomed to long voyages during the war. Many of the men now bound for peaceful duty In the Pacific and nearly all of the ships that will take them are veterans of the struggle sg.'itnst German submarines In the North Sea. Most of the fleet person nel hae made trip after trip across the Atlantic in destroyers or transports In the last few months. It was an old story for them, larking the thrill that went with the sending of the battle ship fleet around the world In 190S. Few Relatives Appear. At the hotels a few relatives of offi cers had gathered for a farewell visit. Their number was strikingly small. Families of most uf the men who nre to remain now in Pacific ports fir months or years to come are either on the way west themselves or preparing to go. The fleet luself apparently was com pletely ready. There was no last min ute coaling. Battleship or destroyer, all those going out to-morrow rode dei p In the water with filleel bunkers and brim ming fuel tanks. For some hours a navy barge lay alongside the New Mexico, mil a red flag at the ship's foremaslhead told of ammunition for her great guns being stowed away. That was all of preparation that could be seen. During the dsy Admiral Rodman Called bis division commanders and captains abeard the flagship for conference. There was much handshaking on the broad, white quarterdeck, where the group gathered, as officer after 'officer came overbids to the shrill of the boatswain's whiwtle and the snap of the marine guard to "present amis." It was only a short talk, however, for all the work of making ready had been done long before, liaoh commander had his orders. As darkness fell to-night and the watch lamps of the lleet showed at mastheud tho blinking of strings of red and white globes told the ships were talking among themselves. There was no pressure of final work for the departure, however, and the armada rode peacefully, but with steam slowly making' In their boil ers. In preparation for the morning and the order to "Shove off." LIEUT. -GEN. LIGGETT ASSIGNED ient. He Will Get Western Departs Dlrkman, the Moatbern. Washinoton, July 18. Lieut. -Gen.

ANTI-TYPHUS ARMY BOUND FOR POLAND Eight Hundred Railway Care Needed for Equipment. By the Aeeociated Prree. Parts, July 18. The most Important medical expedition ever organised to fTght typhus will leave Paris In a few days to try to stamp out the disease In Poland and to attempt to avert a threat ened epidemic In Central Kurope this winter. Col. Harry L. Gilchrist of tho Medical Corps, U. S. A., will command a group of 650 American army officers and vol unteers, all sanitary experts.

The message said : "I regret that Imperative duties here In Washington deny me tho privilege of reviewing your magulfloent fleet as It sails from Hampton Roods to the Golden Gate. The country Is to be congratulated that the American Navy to-day Is big enough and powerful enough to be or ganised Into two powerful fleets of S34, 142 tons each. The world gave glad welcome to what we called our groat fleet when it made Its historic torn around the world. The tonnage of that fleet was 208.527, or less than half your Pacific fleet which will soon sail through the Panama Canal. We have In addition to this an equal fleet In the Atlantic, a small Asiatic fleet, which la to be strengthened, and still a number of ships In European waters. "There were 800 officers and 13,500 man In the fleet when It circled the globe eleven years ago. You are honored to command 2,000 officers and 13,000 men In your splendid fleet. "These comparisons afford an Indica tion of the growth In tonnage and per sonnel In these years, but the growth In flahtlng power Is many times mi eater. Then the largest ship had four lt-lnch guns and could shoot 10,000 yards Tour splendid flat-ship, the New Mexico of 3 2.000 tons, carries twelve 14 -Inch guns and can hit the target at 20,000 yards Its electrical propelling machin ery has marked an epoch In naval prog ress, and since 1(07 the substitution of oil for fuel has greatly increased tne J fighting radius of our ships. "From every city and town on the Pacific coast telegrams announce the warmth of the welcome awaiting your fleet.

The parade was the largest procession of foreign fighting troops the American capital had seen, and the most pictur esque. 'All veterans of live years fltfit Ing. the eldest was a man of 70. with stooped shoulders and venerable beard. The youngest were only lads. "The President expressed the hope that the veterans might keep In mind as they returned to their home land that the laws of God, the laws of man, and the laws of nature required systematic order and cool counsel for their proper application and development, anil for the welfare and happiness of the human race."

Future generations will happily record the Influence for good which you were privileged to exercise upon a large part of the population of the world, and will accord you the place which you have so courageously won. There Is, perhaps, nowhere recorded a more brilliant record than the withdrawal of your for. s in opposition to the armies of Germany and Austria, through a population nt first hostile the march of your armies for thousands of miles across great stretches of Siberia, all the while keep ing In mind the necessity for order and organisation.

Never theloss, Mr. Radklewlez reports, the PoiCsh farmers and their families have already retisrned to the farms and are evorklng them llsrough the peasant de votion to the soil. There will be some thing of a harvest this year, and he hopes that next year's crops will m.'ke Poland almost self-supporting. She needs almost everything, how ever, beginning with fertilizer, farm Im plements and animals, and running through the whole scale ef manufactured products and raw material. The spirit of Bolshevism has never found root in Poland, and the people are already a work with what tools they have at hand Mr. Radklewlez made a vigorous de nit 1 of the reports that there had been pogroms In Poland. "No more than there are In this room at the present moment," he replied quickly to a question. He explained that under former regimes the Jews had been Crowded into the ghettos of the smaller elties and that naturally they had de teriorated. To some extent these wretched people were used by the Rus Ian and German plotters. Mr. Radicle, wlci asserts that the fullest liberties are now granted to the Jewti, Hint that they arc rapidly responding and taking an Important part In the reconstruction of the country. The Polish liovernment has already sals bitched a credit ef 1104,000,000 with American bankers, but the proceeds of this loan ure to be used largely for mili tary purposea it is essential that Poland have a good army." says Mr. Radklewlcx, "for we stand between the Teuton and the Bolshevik We must protect our fron tiers And that is the only puriiose for which the army will be used It Is false lo make charges of aggre-sslon against us, for we are not a militarist people. Oik army is efficient and well disciplined It Is filled with patriotic democrats, thousands of whom got their training in demoe-racy in America." Further advances will be necessary, Mr. Radklewlez admits. In order to finance the needed industrial purchases, hut, he says, the Polish liovernineiu stands ready to guarantee all. in order that the value of Polish currency nnd .xchonge may be kept somewhere near normal until she is ready in two or three years to begin exporting on a scale that will m eintain the standard without artificial aid. Uni. L. Action Necessary. Quick action, he says. Is necessary that Poland may not bo e-ompelled to turn to the nearby German markets. She has no desire to do sei. as evidenced by lo r efforts to buy In America. Nor, says Mr. Radklewlez. should the Polish market be considered as limited to Poland Itself. The tributaries of the Vistula extend across the Russian bor der Into Lithuania and the I'krainr and the rail systems will do the same. Man Polish business men already have ex tensive Interests In those lands. Not only Is Poland the bulwark against Bol shevism but the key to the Russian market when Rolshevlsm has oneo been eliminated. The Hermans, he says, real Izi this and are already sending their agents through the country, but these' rmnts are handicapped by the hatred of the Polish people and by their in ability 10 promise deliveries. There Is no greater national Idol in the world than Paderewski, says M Radklewlce. He came to Paris and lived there with the Premier for s. veral days. In Poland he 1h looked upon as the national savior. In Paris ho Is no h ss popular. Before Paderewski ar rived in Poland Socialist governments had been set up In Borne of the liberated provinces. "It was our best cure for Rolshevlsm," says Mr. Radklewicz. "Though they lasted only thirty days every one who rad anything to do with them will have nothing more." WOULD OBVIATE BATE WABS. I. C. C.

DAYLIGHT IS SAVED IN HOUSE; 203-177 Kepeul Kider, Oneo Vetoed by Wilson. Is Stricken Ontof Subfltitute Bill. REPUBLICANS BOLT .Join Democrats to Block New Attempt to Force Kill ing of Statute. Special Vtupatch to Tub Stn. W.vsHiNarrox, July 18. The House rcfusod to-day to make a second at tempt to repeal daylight savins over the President's veto. After tho House Agricultural Com mittee ha1 reported a wecond agricul tural appropriations bill under orders from nepublitviAn leaderH In practically the same fOftt as the one the Presi dent vetoed, the House, by a vote of 203 to 177, struck from the bill the rider repealing the daylight saving law and then passed the bill without a record vote. The only difference between the bill parsed to-day and the on the President vetoed wus that the latter knocked out the daylight saving law. The President's objections to the previous act restea against the repeal of the daylight law and there was little doubt that ho would have vetoed the second bill had it been ! sent to htm with the repealing rider. The favorable vote for daylight sav ing (o-ilay was accomplished by seventy-nine Republicans who favored the Republicans bolting from their party baderiihip and voting with the ma jority of the Iemocrats, who rontended that If another effort la made to ivpeal the daylight art it must bo through a separate bill and Mt through a rider on an appropriation ll.l. Answer on A vrlcultarnl BUI. They assorted that the action of the Houe Monday In sustaining the Presi dent's veto snould be the final answer on the agricultural bill and that the measure should not now be delayed to embarrass the 1 'epurtm'nt. Many Df-mo-t, rats who voted against the Prrsldent Monday to-day went on record for t:e daylight act. The bolting of the seventy-nine Re publicans after the Republican steering committee approved the plan to try to punh the bill through the House a second time hs alarmed many Republicans. Murmurlngs were heard that .lames A. Mann should be called back from Chi cago to take eharge of the purfty. Rep resentative Madden (111.) to-night de nted that any call had been aent to Mr. Mann or was contemplated. The ridtr that was striken out was offered by Representative Moore (Pa.), Republican. It was first approved by a vote of 165 to 123 by the llnuse in CORimHtM of the whole and then on a roll call was passed 203 to 177. Representative McLaughlin ( Mich.), lanklng Republican on the AglicuRUra) Committee, strongly opposed the passage of the bill with the daylight saving re peal. "After the fffort to pass the hill over the President's veto failed." he said, "we Should resjeet the veto and not throw It back in his faee again. This bill should he passed without the rider be cause all the funds for the Department of Agriculture are held up and many employees are suffering from lack of funds. Hope r nt u in Rapaupata Bin. "The responsibility for this will rest upon Congress and 1 a:n not willing to assume It. If the repeal of the act Is now deMred a separate bill should be passed, sent to the President and theu passed over his veto." Republican leader Mondell ( Wyo. ) urjred passage of the rider because the majority of the people of the country are against the daylight plan, he charged. Representatives Haugen ( Iowa . i Ireene klowa . Tlncher ( Kan and others, favoring the repeal, asserted Con press was Justified In holding up the agricultural apjroprlations because the President in vetoing the original measure did not represent the svntlment of the country. Opponents of daylight saving now plan to try to repeal the daylight got by having the Senate adopt the Kseh bill, already passed by the House. The House acted on daylight saving to-day under a special rule from the Rules Committee, It was reported by the committee on a strictly party vote. Democrats failed in efforts to prevent consideration of the bill by a vote of 201 to 177. Of the New York delegation Repre sentatives Caldwell, McCralte, McCulten. Johnston, O'Connell, Haskell.
