S. Contained Explosives. (Special United Press Wire.) Washington, May 1.-What is be lieved by the officials to be a wide spread attempt on the lives of mem bers of Wilson's cabinet has" just been discovered. Seventeen pack ages being held in the postoffice at New York were found to contain ex plosives. It-is not known how many have already passed through the mails. The packages were addressed to officials throughout the United States, among whom were: Post master-General Burleson, Secretary of Labor Wilson, Attorney-General Palmer, and Commissioner-General of Immigration Caminetti. There were also packages addressed to John D. Rockefeller, J. P. Morgan, New York Commissioner Howe, Mayor Hylan of New York, Gover nor Sproul' of Pennsylvania, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, District At torney Fickert of California and his assistant, Edward Cunha. The bombs were similar to the ones re ceived by Mayor "Ole" Hanson of Seattle and former Senator Hard wick of Georgia. The packages all bear the label of Gimble Bros., a! New York department store, but the officials of the store declare they are imitations. Fear is expressed that some of the packages may have had sufficient postage to insure their delivery through the mails and may be en route to their intended victims. It is noted that virtually all the prominent men to whom the pack ages were addressed are concerned one way or another with the immi gration problems. A warning has been issued by the postoffice de partment to. all postoffice inspectors and superintendents in. charge of the railway mail service to watch for any bombs that may still be in tran sit. It has not been ascertained, the officials state, whether any bombs have been sent to the Americans who are attending the peace confer ence. Friends of Edward Cunha deliver ed the package to him at his sick bed, thinking that it was a present for' him. The package was only partly opened when their suspicions were aroused and tle package was not opened until later. When the contents were disclosed they were found to contain sulphuric acid and explosives similar to that received by Mayor Thuson. Ficket's pack age was left unopened. (Special United Press Wire.) New York, May 1.-Secret serv ice operators throughout the coun try are searching the mails for bombs which it is believed have been sent to all the nation's greatest financiers. (Special United Press Wire.) Washington, May 1.-A wire has been received from the postmaster at Salisbury, N. C., saying he had discovered a bomb in the mails there (Continued on Page Three.) HUNGER WAGES CAUSE MIGRATION FOR SOUTH Washington, May 1.-Hunger wages and lack of employment dur ing a large part of the year are assigned as among the causes of negro migration from Mississippi, in a report on negro migration in 1916-17, by R. H. Leavell of Mis sissippi, just issued through the of fice of the director of negro eco nomics, department of labor. Wages in southwest Mississippi rarely ex ceeded 75 cents a day, Mr. Leavell reports, though a range from 50 cents to $1 appeared in his investi gation. The volume of migrations from Mississippi to the north' cannot readily" be determined, but an esti mate by W. T. B. Williams placee the figure fe!:Missiuippi at aboul 100,000 in a~dsiztiately eighteen months. .bl.on A number;iof Wauses contributed to the moveBtent, among them the MANY SiOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS ARE HURT (Special IniLctd Press Wire.) Paris, May I.--Many soldiers and" civilians were hurt here this afternoon in clashes resulting from May Day demonstrations. The disturbances began in the Palace Dela. Concorde Palace and Dela lRepublic. Shortly after ward a crowd rushed the military cordon in Rue Itomale and broke through the lines of the gen darmes, but was stopped by cav alry a few yards beyond. Numer ous fist fights occurred between gendarmes and civilians when the red flag was unfurled. WILL MEET ON MON DAY Either Wilson or House to Represent U. S.

Versailles, May 1. --- The first meeting between the allies and the German representatives which was scheduled for this morning was post poned until this afternoon. The meeting will be held -in the famous Trianon Palace hotel and will be limited to the presentation and ex amination of credentials of the en emy delegates. Confirmation of them is expected to take 24 hours. Foreign Minister Brockoff and Rant zau head the delegation. Assembling of the articles in the treaty is said to be progressing sat isfactorily. It is believed they will be ready for the Germans Saturday. (Special United Press Wire.) Versailles, May 1.-Peace negoti ations with Germany officially opened here at 3 o'clock this after noon. Foreign Minister Brockdorff, Rantzau and Herr Landsberg, Ger man delegates, handed their creden tials to Jules Cambon, Henry White and Japanese Minister Matsui, repre-] senting the allies. The meeting lasted only five minutes. (Special United Press Wire.) Rome, May 1.-The Italian peace delegation held a meeting last night and it is understood that a decision was reached as to whether the dele gation would return to Paris or not. disastrous storm in 1916 and tIhW boll weevil, which necessitated means of cultivation that required less labor power. Improved living conditions in the north, described by those who had already left the statd, proved a great factor in in ducing others to go. The increased death rate from pellagra in 1915 and pellagra mortality figures in general apparently have a direct relation to wage rates. Pellagra is due to a monotonous low proteid diet, which can be corrected by us ing meats, vegetables and cereals in great abundance. Economic motives were present in practically every case of negro migration, according to Mr. Leavell, but the feeling on the part of the negro that he is discriminated against in business. in the schools, and in the courts has been also a great factor.

ASSURANCES SHOULD, BE GIVEN TO LAAR Washington, M iay 1.-The adop tion of a plan of safeguarding American. industry against extrenme revolutionary industrial propagan da is the keynote of a report just issued by ex-Governor Robert P. Bass of New Hampshire, covering the period of his service as director of the marine and dock industrial relations division of the United States shipping board. He says: "The government should system atically inform both employers and employes in regard to many mat ters of the utmost interest and im portance to each.

"Labor should be promised its reasonable share of any increase in product ion.

Whitty as police judge and his appointment as secretary to Chief of Police Mulrphy; the filing of bonds by City Treasurer elect Herman Strassburger and Po lice Judge-elect H. J.
