Paris '(Copyrkht), June 16. - The real treaty, of
Paris, to be handed the Germans this evening in Ver
sailles, differs materially from the "conditions of peace"
which the enemy received in May, Several important
changes have been made, though the principles of ori
ginal treaty remain the same. The greatest change lies
in the new tore, manifested in the 20,000-word docu
ment, explaining changes replying to Brockdorff's ob
A controveursy isn the session
of the "big five" this afternoon,
over civitias control in the oc
c letd Mlne Adstricts, delayed
y 9:the albs' reply to the
ntee psopesals "f ta '
4 to lV' oW Odlick.' "The "big five"
finally eliminated the civilian
control , provisioUn ,which had
eonstittted one of the biggest
conceseines to the Germans.
The tone is said to be 'more mod
erate and explanatory throughout,
and the document is intended to show
the allies' desire to do justice and
avoid inflicting any unnecessary
hardships on their late enemies. The
change regarding Germany's admis
sion to the league of nations is inm
portant,'since the phrase "in a short
time" is understood to have been eiii
Dtloyed,. This is generally accepted as
meaning in October, when the first
formal meeting will be held in
Washington. Among the qualifica
tions for Germany's admission is her
demonstration of possession of a
stable democratic government.
The Saar valley settlement, accord
ing to iauthoritative information, is
modified materially. The most radi
cal thangs idm, connection to the oc
cupation of the Rhine districts, is a
decision to place that territory un
der civilian instea,d of militar control.

Non-Stop Flight of Nearly
2,000 Miles Is Made By
Captain Alcock and Lieut.
London, June 16.--A non-stop
flight over the Atlantic by airplane
has been accomplished. In their
Vickers-Vimy biplane in which they
set out from Newfoundland, Capt.
John Alcock and Lieut. Arthur W.
Brown landed at 9:40 a. m., British
summer time, yesterday at Clifden,
on the west coast of Ireland, having
accomplished their journey of 1,960
miles in 16 hours and 12 minutes.
In landing in a bog which the avi
ators mistook for a solid field, the
fuselage of the machine was partly
damaged, but the flyers escaped un
The flight, according to Captain
Alcock, was made under difficulties,
most of the time the machine having
flown in fog and sleet with the sun,
stars and moon being obscured. At
the outset of the flight the wireless
propeller was blown away in the
rush of wind induced by the terrific
speed and for the remainder of the
trip the wireless apparatus on the
biplane was out of commission.
First news of the successful flight
was received in a Inmssage from
Captain Alcock sent from Clifden.
His landing was greeted at first with
but little exciteemnt among the in
habitants of the Irish coast, they be
lieving the machine was one of those
engaged in scouting for the Viclfers
Reports made to the British ad
niralty by Captain Alcock and
Lieutenant Brown state that the avi
ators hhd plenty of reserve fuel left,
having used up only about two-thirds
of the supply they had aboard when
they started from Newfoundland.
The aviators reported, that they
suffered no inconveniences on the
trip except when they' lookdd over
the side of the fuselage, when sleet
cut their faces. They asserted they
drank hot coffee and ale and ate
sandwiches and chocolate while in
'Favorable winds were encountered
all during the flight, they said. They
said that for an hour and a half pre
vious to sighting Eastalis land and
Tarbotis land, east of Clifden they
had no idea where they were.

territory southeast of Juarez capturing or killing every Villista

President Determined to
Fight Foes of Treaty. Ex
pects to Be On Way Home
Within Ten Days.
(Special United Press \\ire.)
Washington, June 16.-- It is ex
pected that Wilson, on his return
home, will immediately carry his
fight for the peace treaty and league
of nations covenant directly to the
people, according to the plans being
perfected. A tentative itinerary, in
cluding stops at all principal cities
from one endl of the country to the
other, is now before the president in
Pa ris.
The president's determination to
fight the foes of the treaty of the
league of nations is versed in a priv
ate nmessage received here today, in
which Wilson said nothing must in
terfere with his "getting the country
to understand the treaty." 'When the
piresident's swing around the circle
begins, depends altogether on swhen
he is able to leave Paris. It now ap
pears likely that he will be on the
high seas within 10 days, unless
there is some hitch in the schedule of
signing the treaty by the Germans,
July 21.
The president will leave for Brus
sels tomorrow night, according to a
message received here, and will re
turn to Paris Friday. Official word
of the president's decision to take up
the cudgel in behalf of the treaty and
league, is looked upon here as fore
casting a determined offensive by ad
ministration followers and friends of
the covenant to drive the treaty
through the senate.

the barrage of the American artillery,
which, as intended, cut off the Villis

The American crossing was made
with typical Yankee dash. Within

dead were lying in distorted attitudes
over curbings, and dogs were prowl

Washington, June 16.-The -sole
purpose of the American soldiers in
crossing the border is to protect the
lives of Americans, Secretary of War

possibility of a misunderstanding
between Mexico and the United
