Much Feted.
London, July 1. Land, sea and air
forces of the British Empire and all
her allies inarched to-day In the tri
umphal victory parade to mark the
return of peace.
Several million persons watched the
gorgeous spectacle, their enthusiasm
growing as each new excitement
stirred tIKIr emotions. When the Brit
ish contingents came In sight the ap
plause became a great roar, above
which could be heard at times the
shrill voices of women. The patriotic
fervor had its climax in the great
demonstration along rail HM and
about the pavilion before Buckingham
Palace, where King George, Queen
Mary, Premier LlojsJ George, the Cabi
net Ministers, John W. Davis, the
American Ambassador, and other .11
Iilomats reviewed the parade.
Gen. Pershing, leading the American
forces, received a hearty reception. So
also did Marshal Foch and the French
and the other allied leaders and their
contingents. The tremendous cheering
that, greeted each national force was
virtually continuous.
RiKareat London Fete Since 1807.
London has not witnessed such a
celebration since Queen Victoria's dia
mond Jubilee in 187. Buckingham
Falace was decorated on Its exterior
for the first time in Its history. Huge
flags of the Allies floated from the
upper windows and a wide streamer
or purple and gold stretched across
the facade. The royal pavilion, erected
close to the beautiful. Victoria me
morial monument, added color to the
striking scene.
King George, from his seat on the
scarlet dais, had a clear view through
a colonnade of ornate white pylons
reaching for more than half a mile to
the Admiralty Arch. The troops
marched past the reviewing stand to
the music of dozens of military bands.
The Americans led the procession.
It was 12:30 o'clock when they c.ime
marching with springy step and smart
precision that would have gladdened
the heart of a West Point, comma tvl
snt. As the Americans approached
the stand. King George and all cithern,
including Queen Mary, the aged Queen
Mother Alexandra and Princess Mary,
rose. The King, In the uniform of a
Field Marshal, kept his hand to his
visor In rigid salute until Oen. Per
shing, sitting his horse llks a
cavalryman, had passed. The Ameri
can troops won compliments on their
formation. The bayonets of many
were decorated with flowers and bniall
lTnlon Jacks.
Persfclna- Stands With Kim.
Oen. Pershing dismounted a hundred
yards beyond the King's stand and re
turned to It. where he was greeted br
all. He stood with King George during
the remainder of the review.
Marshal Foch, Vies -Admiral Sir David
Beatty, Field Marshal Sir Douglas Halg
and other commanders joined the re
viewing party as soon as their contin
gents had passed. Vice-Admiral Beatty
and Field Marshal Halg were given tre
mendous cheers.
The massed colors of the various regi
ments won the admiration of the crowd.
Four huge tanks also came In for much
attention.
One of the prettiest features of the
parade was the releass of a oovey of
pigeons from In front of the King's
stand.
Women war workers swinging along
received one long ovation as they passed
over the six miles of London streets.
Especially did Queen Mary's Auxiliary
Corps win spplause, and at this the
royal patroness seemed greatly pleased.
As soon as the last troops passed the
stand the great crowd made a rush for
the royal pavilion, where there was a
demonstration for the King and Queen
while the massed Guards' bands played
"Ood 8a'-e the King."
Once the parade was over the crowds
gathered In the centre of the city, eager
to begin the street revela Plcadllly Cir
cus, Leicester Square and the Strand
soon were filled with merrymakera who
braved showers to start the dancing.
Groups of girls costumed In the national
colors and young men In carnival attire
led In the frolics.
Kins; and Qneen Give Lnncheon.
The King and Queen entertained the
officers of the allied contingents at
luncheon at Buckingham Palace. The
guests Included .also Premier Lloyd
George, Winston Spencer Churchill, Sec
retary for War ; ex-Premier Asqulth
Field Marshal Halg and Admiral Beatty.
Gen. Pershing and Major-Gens. Harbord
nd Brewster represented the United
States. The King gave the toast:
"I drink to the health of the troop
ot our gallant allies, whose representa
tives and leaders I am proud to wel
come here to-day."
The luncheon was served In the state
dining room, which was beautifully
decorated with red carnations and roses.
An Informal reception followed the
luncheon.
Later In the afternoon the King and
Queen, wflh PHnOSSS Mary and Prince
Qeorge, paid a surprise visit to the royal
parks to see the children's festivities and
dancing.
Picturesque incidents were common
along the whole route of the procession.
andnu the working class neighborhoods
of South London, perhaos. the reception
of the troops was heartier and more
spontaneous than anywhere. Girls show
ered flowers and cigarettes on the sol
diers, and wherever a halt was made
passed glasses of water of other refresh
ment to the tired paraders.
A ten minute halt at Vauxhall was the
signal for general fraternization between
the American troops and the spectators,
with a further brisk bestowing of sweet
meats and cigarettes.
Touching; Scenes at Cenotaph.
The most touching and emotional of
all were the scones around the great
cenotaph erected In Whitehall to the
memory of the dead, Impressive by its
Severs simplicity and bearing the simple
Inscription : "The glorious dead." Here
the cheering was stilled as successively
Pershing, Foch, Halg and the other great
war leaders drew rein, faced tlie ceno
taph and saluted.
Nineteen thousand allied soldiers
picked men from the famous combat di
visions, the names of which are written
large on the pages of history of the war
marchd In the psrade. The line ex
ceeded six miles In length and required
more than an hour to pass a given point.
The procession began at Albert Oate
and passed through Sloane Square to
Buckingham Palace road, crossing the
Thames at Vauxhall Bridge. It then
passed to Westminster Bridge and re
crossed the Thames, going on to White
hall and Pall Mall and terminating at
Hyde Park, which adjoins Kensington
Gardens.
Largs numbers of people camped on
the streets all night to hold places from
which the parade could be seen. Huge
grand stands accommodating thousands
were erected for demobilised soldiers, an
effort being made to arrange that every
soldier home on leave from France
should see the procession. Among those
who witnessed the parade from these
stands were 4,000 widows, mothers and
children of officers and men killed during
the war.
City OTerflewlsg,
London for the past week has been
overflowing with those who cams to the
city for the celebration. Many ware
forced to seek shelter tn police stations
and churches and large numbers slept on
park and Embankment benches.
The nineteen thousand paraders camped
at Kensington Gsrdens yesterday and
last night. They were drawn from the
British, American, French, Italian, Bel
gian, Japanese, Polish, Rumanian, Por
tuguese, Serbian, Siamese and Cxecho
Slovaklan armies. The American contin
gent consisted of three battalions of SI
officers snd 1,100 men each. Belgium
had In line 440 officers and men, led by
Gen. Gillian ; Francs was represented by
190 men. and Italy by 8SS. There were
5 officers and 60 men for each of the
other allied nations.
Behind the allied section came Vlce
Admlrala Beatty and Keyes and other
high officers of the Grand Fleet, with a
naval contingent of 4,000 men. Then
came 1,000 men from the mercantile
marine and 500 women from various
war services.
Next came Field Marshal Halg and
his staff, leading 5,000 British troops of
every branch of the service. Major-Gen.
Salmor.d led the Royal Air Force con
tingent. All the, dominions had forces In
line. It had been feared that Canada
would not be represented because so few
Canadian troops were left In London.
At the last moment, however, a de
tachment was collected, and It took part
In the parade.
Danelag In High Favor,
Since, as proved by armistice week,
dancing is the most favored way of
celebrating, the authorities provided
four huge areas for dancing on Hyde,
Green and Regent's parks, old time
country dances being features of the
programme. These dances are easy to
pick up and great crowds, in which
children were prominent. Joined In the
fun.
Elsewhere in the city military bands
rav.o concerts, and pageants and scenes
from Shakespeare were given by the
atrical clubs. A choir of 6.0U0 singers
under the auspices of the League of
Arts gave a feature entertainment, the
singers being clad in picturesque Vic
tory costumes. To-night the Imperial
Choir appeared In a peace and thanks
giving performance In Hyde Park. This
organization numbers more than 10.000
singers. The public was provided with
the words of songs to be sung and
Joined In the patriotic numbers. Fire
works ended the day s festivities.
Everywhere the returned heroes of the
war were honored, whether they ap
peared in khaki or mufti. These men.
released from the perils and hardships
of w.ir. led the marrymaklng. Those
who did not return from the battlefields,
however, were not forgotten. In every
town or city there were prayers for the
fallen, and many a shrine dedicated to
the memory of a dead hero bore Its
floral tribute.
1 lr.-. on Hilltops.
To-night there blazed from hill snd
mountain tops the flare of fires kindled
In honor of peace. In Dover there was
a grand Illumination, the Admlralt
turning over to the committee there a
large number of flares invented by Com
mander Brock, who was killed at Zee
bruggr, who used this means of Illumi
nating the Channel In defending the
coast and shipping from L'-boats during
the War. These burn for seven minutes
and light up an area of three square
miles.
The navy gave a big display off the
mouth of the Thames, more than a hun
dred whips anchored In a line flvs miles
long taking part.
One of the largest celebrations of the
day outside of London was held at Dub
lin, where Irish regiments paraded be
fore Field Marshal Viscount French and
other members of the Irish administra
tion. As a result of the efforts of the Brit
ish Patrlotlo League the day was cele
brated In the Dominions and In the most
remote parts of the empire.
As a preliminary to the celebration

Wabhinuton, July 1. Acting Secre

a statement admitting ths accuracy of
the code message signed by Mr. Polk
and addressed to Col. House which by
some mysterious means reached ths
Nation mag-as Inn and was published In
the last Issue. But Mr. Phillips empha
sised the fact that this was merely a
private message sent by Arthur Bui lard
of the former Creel committee, and that
Mr. Polk's only connection with it was
that he acted' as transmitter. The mes
sage In no sense reflects the view of Mr.
Polk or of the State Department. (Mr.
Phillips stated.
As in the case of a previous confiden
tial messags pertaining to Russian af
fairs which the Bolshevik sympathizers
in New York made public, ths only Inter
est here Is how ths messsgs was ob
tained. It appears evident now that
some underhand work has been going on

Britten, 111., Says Public Is
Convinced Onlj in Favor
of A. E. F. Leader.
! Dttpateh to Tn 8t:s.
Washinoton, July 1. Concrsts evl
dsncs of the fact that there w.ll be se
rious opposition In Congress to the eleva
tion of Peyton C. March to the perma
nent rank of General in the United States
Army was disclosed In the House to-day
when, following the recommendation of
the President In regsrd to permanent
rank for John J. Pershing as a General
and of William S. Sims and William S.
Benson as Admirals, bills to award these
honors wers Introduced, Oen. March wss
Ignored.
It Is to be presumed thst some other
admirer of the Chief of Staff will later
Introduce a bill following out the Presi
dent' suggestion In respect to Gen. Msrch,
hut there was no very evident rush to
drop ons Into the Speaker's hopper to
day. v
Representative Kahn (Cel.), chair
man of the House Military Affairs Com
mittee. Introduced a bill creating the
rank of permanent General In the army.
The bill did not specify either Gen. Per
sMng or Gen. Msrch, but so Identified
them by their records as to make them
the only ones available tor the new
honor.
Representative Britten (III.) Intro
duced a resolution to give ths rsnk of
General to John J. Pershing for life, but
stated hs had purposely avoided naming
Oen. March for the same rank.
The permanent rank of Admiral for
William 8. Sims snd William S. Benson
Is provided In a bill Introduced by Chair
man Butler fPa.) of the Naval Affairs
Committee. Mr. Butler said he believed
there would be no objection to granting
the rank to both naval officers.
"Admtral Benson has done wonder
ful work all thmvgn ths war as chief
of naval operations, said Mr. Butler.
"Hs was ready at ths drop of the hat,
snd Admiral Slms's work on ths other
side speaks for Itself."
Both resolutions will be considered
next week by the House Military Com
mittee, House rulss providing that when
the President's recommendations ars
contained In one message they shall be
referred to the older committee, In this
oass that on Military Affairs.
Explaining the bill honoring only Gen.
Pershing, Mr. Brlttsn said: "I am con
vinced that the American publlo feels
that Gen. Pershing has contributed no
small part toward ths successful conclu
sion of ths war and that he Is really
ons of the foremost military men of the
present generation.
"1 have purposely avoided Including
ths name of Oen. March In my bill be
esuss of ths lats hour he cams Into the
foremost position In the Wsr Depart
ment on this side of the water, and I
really do not believe he has hsd an op
portunity to Justify Congrsswlonal action
In his favor. Congressional action should
only corns after such military endeavor
as to leave no question about the recipi
ent's worthlnsss."

In tils letter to the executive bosrd ten
dsrlng his reslgnaUon, Mr. Konenkamp

personal and my chief regret will be to
sever the harmonious and at all times
cordial relations with my fellow offi
cera I accepted the presidency of the

WashInoton, July 19. Representative
Britten (111.) to-dsy Introduced In. ths
House a Joint resolution to create a
speclsl nstlonal commission to study
conditions and bring about a more In
timate and cordial understanding be
tween capital and labor. Ths measure
provides that manufacturing, banking
and commercial Interests shall pick nlns
of the twenty members of the proposed
confsrence and labor organizations nlns
more, while the remaining two shall he
designated by the President
The Britten resolution Is Introduced ss
a substitute for similar measures by
Senator Polndexter (Wash.) In the Sen
ate, and Representative Kelly (Pa.) In
ths House, under the terms of which
the list of twenty members of the pro
posed conference ere set forth In the
text of the resolutions.
Explaining the reasons which had
prompted htm to Introduce his resolu
tion In the present form, Mr.
said :
'While I have no personal objections
to such gentlemen as Frank, P. Walsh.
William K. Vsnderbllt. J. P. Morgan,
John D. Rockefeller. Samuel Qompera.
Daniel Guggenheim. Charles H. Meysr
and others nsmrd In the Polndsxtsr
Kelly bills, I am quits certain thai
neither American capital nor labor would
feel satlsded with any findings made bjr
a Congressional hand picked delegation.
"When a conference of capital and
labor Is authorised by Congress Its par
annuel should be made up of man se
lected by associations of cormriercirian
ufscturers' associations, banking ,ssso
clattons and labor organisation from
all parts or the United States. This
would Insurs the selection of men whsss
prominence In Industrial and labor mat
ters Is well known.
"Any conference of dslsgates reprs
aentlng capital and lstoor with a view to
ameliorating differences between them
that doss not permit the selection by
capital snd labor of Its delegates will
Immediately lack publlo confidence and
will In all probability do mors harm
than good."
