Berlin. March 6.-Street fighting has brokeni out with re lnewed violence. After the rebels appeared to have been crushed and radical leaders admitted defeat, the Sparatcans rallied. The general strike, which had almost flickered out, seems to be gaining strength. Many republican guards were wound ed in street fighting in various parts of the city. Some radical chiefs changed their attitude of pessimism and are threatening to develop a revolution which would accomplish what the first Spartacan outbreak failed to accomplish. Government mastery of the situation, so evident a few days ago, appeared precarious at the time of cabling and the fight 11~ -l.JiJ11% Iou tin s 0 Junker Government Makes Concessions (Special United Press Wire.)

FIGHTING A FREE PRESS WHICH 18 ENTERED IN THE UNITED STATES MAILS AND APPROVED BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT BULLETIN CIRCULATION IS JUMPING It is hard to believe, hIt there are indications that the A. C. 31. and the Clark people are short on fi nances. For the vast week we have been receiving reports that persons, claiming to represent the P. C. O.

Of course, there must be mlore than 5.000 patriotic citizens in Ilutte, but they do not measure up to the stand ard required by the gunmen and i stool-pigeons who appear to be at the helm in the P.

In fact, even some of the mnembers of this organization hav'e recently discover ed that they were not patriotic citi zeus, at least so they inferred when they were ordered to turn in their buttons by the gunman who sum mloned them to the inner chambner, located in the office of .J.

C. M. TAKES NO ACTION REGARDING ONE DAN KELLY CONVICTED OF A CRIME Helena, March 7.-That the Ana conda Copper Mining company reigns supreme in the legislative halls of Helena was never better demonstrat ed than when a committee of the house was instructed to investigate the case of W. F. Dunn, editor of the Butte Daily Bulletin, who is being tried in the courts for "poking fun" at Governor Stewart's defense coun cil. In the face of.all this, one Dan M. Kelly, legislator frbm Silver Bow county, sits serenely in Montana's legislative halls with no thought of an investigation, although Kelly was convicted of a crime involving moral turptitude and paid a fine, after ap-; pealing to a federal court. Notwithstanding Kelly's record, the committee has decided that Dunn will be unseated IF the supreme court finds him guilty as charged. The house took action to this ef fect last night, when it adopted the! following report of the committee ap pointed to determine the "legal stat us" of "Du'n.,of Silver Bow." "Tse said W. F.

Paris, March 7.-The final military terms imposed on Germany will prob ably be even more drastic than those the supreme war council originally proposed. Captain Tardieu, colu missioner of France-American rela tions, told the United Press that while the representatives of five great powers are practically agreed on naval ter:us, they hadn't agroeed on military terms. "because it seems to be a unanimous desire that they should be even more stringent than the supremle war couIncil proposed." League and Peace Treaty Combined With regard to the question of whether the league of nations cove nant shall be included in the peace treaty which Germany will be asked to sign Tardieu explained the cove nant itself would be first signed by the allies and later-when admitted to the league---by Germany. He said: "The French idea now is that it is very important to keep a connection between the treaty of peace and the league of nations." Lloyd George Wants Things Speeded Up Lloyd George, since his return to Paris, has added his weight to the speeding up proceedings, not only toward an early signing of the peace treaty. but also toward quickly meet ing the food situation in central Eu rope. British reports regarding condi tions in Germanyand German Aus tria and similar reports reaching the Americans of conditions in Austria are described as most critical and the people are on the verge of starvation. Delegates appreciate that this situa tion may become so serious that Ger many will break up, making the signing of any kind of peace impos sible. France Objects to Feeding the Germans Le Temps has raised objection to the allies feeding German Austria, voicing a widespread French senti ment against it. However, it is generally considered by the peace delegates as a necessary step in effecting world peace tran quility. It is pointed out that the work. of the food administration in rushing supplies was planned under the greatest difficulties and was all that saved the situation there and pre vented the country from disintegrat ing.
