It Has at noon Tuesday, within .in
hour of his arrival here, that Edward
Albert, Prlnee of Wales, was Invested
formally with the freedom of New
York city. He became a New Yorker,
but his Intimate knowledge of the city
at that time was confined to what he
bad observed in a motor trip from tho
Battery to City Hall. But before he
went to bed last night he had ex
perienced more actual thrills than be
fall tho average New Yorker born and
brought up in tho metropolis.
Essaying to start out ?s a civilian
the Prince began his Intimate and in
fcrmal acquaintance with. New York
by a bird's eye view of the city from
the top of the Woolworth tower. Hy
the time this was accomplished the
royal guest learned that New York
had accepted him just as sincerely as
a civilian as it did when ho wore a
uniform and before tho day was over
he -had descended to tho vaults of tho
United States Sub-Treasury and fig
uratively speaking had seen Now
York from top to bottom.
It was only an ircldent in a full day
hn he was caught In a traffic Jain
when travelling afoot down Fifth avenue
and was all but :un down by a taxi
chauffeur, who tried to beat the traffic
carrier In West Flfty-flrat street.
The day's programme for young Wales
vtiterday Included among other things a
rtctptlon by representative men In tho
flranclal and industrial life of the com
it unity at the Chamber of Commorce, i
tlslt to Trinity Church, tome slapstlcn
novle comedy at the old Academy of
Muilc, a visit to the Horse Show", a call
at the New York Yacht Club, a dinner
7 allied British societies at the Waldorf,
and It concludea with a brilliant social
function at the home of Mrs. Whltelaw
Prince n Boar Day.
Altogether it was a full day, and when
It was over young Wales retired aboari
the Renown a very tired but very happy
Hung min.
At Trinity Church yesterday morning
'ho Rev. Dr. William T. Manning . told
he Prince,:
"We welcome yon among us with deep
acnor and, If I may say so, with deep
ttctlon which you have inspired In us
for your own sake."
. That seemed to epitomlre New York's
attitude toward tho Prince aa well aa
anything else that was said for him
yesterday. The crowds that filled down
town Now York when he visited the
financial district and cheered as they
have seldom been known to' do on a
scond day occasion were ample testi
fy of this city's regard and respect
'or Its youthful guest.
The Prince came ashore at 10 o'clock
Jeiterday morning, landing at the wharf
01 tne Columbia Yacht Club at Eighty
slith street. The first feature of a
ya programme was an Inspection of a
Poup of members of the British Oroat
ar cteraas of America. The Prince
'as not In uniform. He wore a quiet
nay suit end overcoat ulth a black
onler hat.
Co v M. Fitzhugh, formerly of the
Royal Berkshlres, was In command of
Jh veterans' guard of honor, which had
twn Mcorted by a detachment from the
ttvemy.nrst Regiment 'of the New York
0"rd. After the usual formalities an
American (lag was presented to the
lnc by Major George B. Compton In
M..alf of the American Legion of New

The Woolworth Building was tne next
wJecHve. The routo was down Krrrslde
wive to Seventy-second street, to Cen

Inth and Lafayette streets. The escort
o. motorcycle police attracted Immediate
attertion, and however much the Prince
ir.y have desired to travel Incognito he
as forced to respond repeatedly to
"'- ar.d salutations from the,crowd as

Ettinger Makes First Move to
Rid Now York Schools of
Radical Menace.
Warning Sent Out Of Jiomb
Plot in Mails Larkin and
Gitlow Free on Bail.
The first decisive action iu the
campaign to purge New York city's
public school system of teachers who
seek to Inculcate revolutionary so
cial doctrines In the minds of their
pupils was taken yesterday. Sonla
Ginsberg of 1233 Forty-first street,
Brooklyn, probationary teacher In
Public School 170, Brooklyn, whose
name was found In tho card file of
members of the Communist party
seized in recent raids, was dismissed
from service after a hearing by Dr.
"William L. Ettinger, superintendent
of schools.
Miss Ginsberg, who was born In
Russia, admitted to Dr. Ettinger that
she subscribed to the manifesto Issued
by the Communists. She said, how
ever, she had not understood that the
document advocated the overthrow of
the Government by force and had
thought the Communists sought to
bring about a change of tho social
order through peaceful means. In j
answer to a direct question by Dr.
Ettinger she said she was not satis
fied with the form of government hero
and that she believed a Soviet gov
ernment should be established in Its
Immediately after she had made these
admissions Dr. Ettinger revoked her pro
bationary teaching license. His action
will come before tho board of superin
tendents for approval to-day and, fol
lowing the board's vote. Miss Ginsberg's
connection with the Department of Edu
cation will automatically end.
Fifteen Other Teachers Called.
Fifteen other teachers, whose names
have been connected with membership In
the Communist party, were served with
buay-f-fcubpoenas, yesterday, at the Instance of
Samuel A. Berger. Deputy Attorney Gen
eral, to appear before him Friday after
noon. Tliey will be questioned and such
evidence as may be secured wilt be re
ported by Mr. Berger to the proper au
thorities for Immediate action under sec
tion 695 of the laws or 1917, known aa
the peace and safety act
Some of the teachers are connected
with private schools, but the majority
are In the public service.
Exactly how extensive the teaching of
radical doctrines to public school chil
dren has been Is a question that Is caus
ing Dr. Ettinger no little uneasiness.
"It Is possible there are many In addi
tion to those whose names have been
found on the lists seized In the raids
upon radical organisations," he said.
"There la no place for "such persons In
the public schools here. The fact that a
teacher Is a member of the Communist
party Is sufficient to Insure dismissal
from now on."
Sergeant Gegan and members of the
bomb squad were seeking last night to

Special liespaloA to The Sun.
Philadelphia, Nov. 19. Discovery of
a "Red" plot to slay officials with ex
plosive Christmas mall packages was
announced to-day by James Robinson,
Superintendent of Police.
Information of tho plot, which he
considers reliable, indicates it Is na
tionwide nnd directed against Federal,
Sfato and city authorities who took
part in the national roundup of radi
cals planning the overthrow of tho
Immediate steps were taken to pre
pare Federal investigators, postal au
thorities and police of large cities for
action against tho "mall terror," which
ii scheduled to begin operation shortly
before and during the Christmas holi
Evidence of the existence of a plot to
send bombs through tho mall under rib
bons and holly was reported to Supt.
Robinson by Andrew Emanuel, head of
the Bomb Squad, who said ho unearthed
it during his Investigation of radical ac
tivities here. The Information was
checked up and verified according to
Anarchist lleveals Plot.
The source of Information was with
held by the police. It Is believed to
have originated from an anarchist
"squealer," who was afraid of the con
sequences threatened by the plot. A
memorandum issued by tho bureau of
police, announcing discovery of the plot,
follows :
Superintendent of Pollco Robinson
Is In possession of reliable Informa
tion that tho members of a certain
radical organization, with headquar
ters In tho principal cities of the
United States, are preparing to send
out prior and during the Christmas
holidays packages of neat appear
ance, which would probably bo con
sidered as Christmas gifts by the per
sons who receive them, to tho United
States Government officials and of
ficials of the States and cities whose
duties have required them to take an
active part In the suppression of Bol
shevik and anarchistic movements.
The radicals say that when the of
ficials receive and open tho packages
they will be greatly surprised, as an
explosion will result.
The superintendent has sent the In
formation to tho Government officials
in this city and to Chief of Police
Qulgley of Rochester. N. Y.. who Is
chairman of the board of governors
of tho National Bureau of Criminal
Identification and president of Inter
national Association of Chiefs of Po
llco, with the request that tho mat
ter be given wide publicity.
Todd Daniel, District Superintendent
of tho Department of Justice, and George
A. Leonard, Chief Postal Inspector, were
appraised of the find. The city's bomb
squad has been Joubled following the
disclosure, and determined efforts are be
ing made to arrest tho organizers of
tho alleged plot before It begins opera
tion Joseph McDevltt, agent of the Depart
ment of Justice, In charge of Investi
gating radical activities, said Govern
ment officials here had been wamcd to
to wary of mall packages.
Washington, Nov. 19. Department of
Justice officials said to-night they were
without Information as to the discovery
by the Philadelphia police of a nation
wide plot to kill Federal, State, and mu
nicipal officials by means of bombs sent
through the malls at Christmas tlmo.
The bureau of Investigation of the De

its Philadelphia agents for details uf

LONDON, Nov. 10. The Man
chester Guardian, commenting
editorially on the American at
titude toward the peace treaty,
"Whatever the result, it is es
sential for Europe to understand
that American opposition is
mainly the outcome not of nar
row nationalism or lack of
imagination, and still less political
manoeuvring. It is rooted in the
faults of 'the treaty itself.
"The covenant was born in an
atmosphere of passion. Many of
its articles are ambiguous, un
practical and inequitable. But
dominating as the act is, it has
behind it in Europe not tho
forces of reaction and imperial

Washington, Nov. 19. Real nego-
i tiatlons between tho coal mine oper
ators and tho coal miners of the coun
try 'were begun thlsi afternoon fol
lowing a joint conference In tho morn
ing at which Dr. Harry A. Garfield,
Fuel Administrator, made a declar
ation to both Bides on behalf of tho
Government, telling them that the
public Interest was paramount and
that the public must -and would havo
After the Joint meeting with Dr.
Garfield miners and oporators ap
pointed a Joint committee of eight to
enter upon negotiations for settlement
of differences between them. This
commltteo went Into session at the
Washington Hotel.
After the meeting John L. Lewis,
for the miners, said that no progress
has been made and that nothing new
had been offered. The operators' rep
resentatives remained behind for half
an hour or more. It was stated for
them that negotiations were really
under way and that progress had
been made toward a settlement. Both
sides said that tho proceedings of tho
meetings would be secret.
SlffnMcnnt Move Planned.
There Is apparently under way somo
significant move by tho Government and
by tho miners and opcratora Officials
generally are keeping the strictest se
crecy, however. Much discussion In
Washington centred upon Interpretation
of Dr. Garfield's message. It left a plain
inference that If tho operators and min
ers could not agree to produce the coal
that was necessary to keep tho na
tion from fuel famlno the Government
would. Time Is becoming a principal
factor in the situation. Reserve stocks
of coal are running low and Industry
will soon have to go on a rationing

thus amended governed the settle

Paris, Nov. 19. It Is asserted In
woll Informed circles hero that Indi
rect negotiations conducted with Re
publican leaders In Washington have
brought assurances that tho Franco
American treaty, providing tho
United States should come to the aid
of France should Germany attack her,
would receive Republican support In
the Senato provided that Artlclo III.,
requiring tho approval of tho pact by
the council of tho League of Nations,
Is eliminated.
This is thoroughly acceptablo to tho
Fronch Government, ns it is pointed
out that this article was Inserted In
tho Franco-American treaty solely on
the Insistence of President Wilson.
The French Government, of course,
cannot make known officially Its com
plete approval in advance of the elim
ination of this provision, but It hits
conveyed Ihdirectly to the Republi
can leaders In Washington Us views
upon tho matter, which accounts
seemingly for tho feeling of confi
dence in French official circles that
whatever happens to tho peace treaty
Franco still can count upon tho
Franco-American pact. A busy ex
change of cable messages is taking
place with Ambassador Jusserand In.
It was emphasized again to-day that
It Is the preamble and the reservations
regarding tho economic clauses of the
peace treaty with Germany, such as the
decisions of the Reparation Commission
and trading with the Germans, that the
French chiefly object to In the Repub
lican programme In the Senate. French
officials arc not willing to believe that
President Wilson Intends to withdraw
the treaty without first attempting to
effect a compromise by which the reser
vations will ba modified or eliminated
and thus the treaty would be saved.
Should the Versailles treaty be with
drawn the question is being asked here
what will happen to tho Austrian treaty
In the American Senate. It Is pointed
out also that the United States Is about
to sign the Bulgarian treaty, which, like
that with Austria, Is Interwoven with
the covenant of the League of Nations.
Last night's Presae do Paris, the combi
nation antl-Soclallst newspaper that has
grown out of the printers' strike, quotes
a high authority as declaring that the
reservations did not seem to mako !m

Paris. Nov. 19. The Hungarian
situation Is goln from bad to worse
arid reports received here by the Su
preme Council of the Peace Confer
ence Indicate the possibilities of a
monarchical coup d'etat. That Sir
George Clerk, the emissary of tho Su
premo Council at Budapest, appears to
be indirectly concerned with the mon
archist revival Is Indicated by des
patches to Paris saying that he has
been won over completely by the royal
ists and has permitted their troops to
occupy the capital after tho Rumanian
The elections which are to be hetd this
week thus will be held under tho super
vision of the monarchist army, with the
outcome of course not unfavorable to
them. Clerk reports that tho Socialists)
and tho supporters of Premier Frlederlch
have arrested among them several high
persons favorable to the Allies; he has
been Instructed to demand their Immedi
ate release.
Clerk's efforts to form a coalition gov.
ernment, or as It has been called "a
ministry of concentration," have failed
completely. The prospect that It will bo
possible to present the peace treaty to
soma sort of Hungarian government be
fore the peace conference adjourns
seems to be very slun.

Buenos Aires, Nov. 19. Discussing
the possibility of the r.oii-rntlflcation
by tho United States Senate of the
German peaco treaty In its original
form, the Xarion to-day says that tills
Is a matter of great eravity for the fu
ture relatlon-yof the United States and
tho Latin American countries, which,
with the single exception of Mexico,
are either original members of or have
given their adherence to the League
of Nations.
Tho Naclon considers that failure by
the United States to ratify the treaty
In Its original form would Imperil the
very existence of tiio League of N.itlons.
and that certainly without tho partici
pation of the United .-States Uic League
would not bo the material nnd nioial
power that was anticipated. It asserts
further that If the United States "be
cause of the attitude of the Republican
opposition -In Its Senate docs not form
part of tho league." these Latin Ameri
can countries "will tlnd themselves In
a different camp from the United States,
will And they have acquired a special
situation In relation to the other mem
bers of the league and be forced to
consider the United States aa a factor
In a certain manner foreign to the de
velopment of their peaceful policy, which
surely will not be satisfactory to them
In view of tholr sincere desire always
to be In the same camp with their great
northern sister."
Dwelling on the Monroo Doctrlr.e res

to harmonize the opposition of the Re

"There Is In this attitude of the United

"a contradiction not easily cxp'a'ned.

Washington, Nov.. 10. The treaty
of penco with Germany, negotiated by
President Wilson, was killed by tbe
Senate to-night. Immediately there
after Senator Lodge, the Republican
leader, introduced u concurrent reso-,
Ititlon declaring the state of war with
Germany nt an end. The resolution
was read to the Senate anil referred
to the Foreign Relations Committee.
Three times during the day the
Senate showed its .readiness to vote
down the peace treaty, either with
or without reservations. Tho death
blow came on a resolution of Sena
tor Underwood (Ala.), who bad as
sumed Ibe leadership for the Admin
istration, for btralglilout ratification
without reservation. This was de
feated by a vote of 38 for to 53
against. Previously the Senate had
defeated the Lodge resolution for
nitllicatlon with reservations twice,
tlrst by 39 ayes to 53 nays nod fee
ond by 41 ayes to 01 nays.
Ah the treaty now stands it is de
funct. The President, If he sees fit,
may resubmit the old treaty to tbe
Senate. This iis possible, however,
only If the concurrent resolution of
Senator Lodge I not acted upon be
fore tbe President decides on resub
mission. Only through negotiation of
a new treaty with Germany can any
other document, affecting the tech
nical end of the war, be presented to
the Senate by the President.
