Throughout the campaign there wis
a lack e>f interest in municipal politic-',
arid tlr^ continued through iIk primary
yesterday. The vote cast was light,
and will ta'.al Trtle more than ."?.000
ballots. The light vote was caused in
som* degree by the absence from the
city of many qualified voters who have
jo.ned the colors or have sought other
fields for employment during the past
few month?. Despite this tact, how
ever. there was a light in practically
every ward among the supporters ot
the various candidates.
There was not the blightest d;s-irder j
in any section of tile city, according
to reports filed at the district police
stations. Candidates worked hard
throughout the day, and mustered a
sub: tantially heavy vote late, in the
afternoon. This resulted directly from
the new daylight-saving plan, with the!
poll.- remaining open until o'clock

Politicians saw in the election ye
t? relay a great victory for the charter
change movement in Richmond. Re
ports had been circulated throughout
the city that Counclltnen would be
"scratched" because of their activities
in promoting the Council's plan, which
has been approved by the Virginia Lien
era 1 Assembly and now rocs to the elec
tors of Richmond for ratification. This
opposition, howevr, did not develop.
The warmest tight against the char
ter niovemen was. staged in Jefferson
Ward. It was there that strong oppo
sition to Councilman John R. Jeter,
who supported the Council's plan, was
mustered because of his stand. Mr.
Jeter was fought throughout the cam
paign. James E. Dlckerson, chief clerk

while Captain Morgan R. Mills, who

John R. Grimes, who voted against it.
found themselves in fourth and fifth

the nomination by only one \ote over

Mr. Dickerson acknowledged his de

his esperience. he said. "I am a

with an explanatory statement. lie
.-aid the measure had been greatly mis
understood; that i' does not confcr any

Poth Senator.-; Overman and .Voiron

largely is based upon reluctance to
trust tiie President.
Senator Overman declared tiiat both
real I! r i t a; n and France have ?-on
fe-red greater powers upon thc:r Pre
miers than this country has on the
l'rr sident.
To the contention that the bill should
limit the President's act ons to specific

that even though that w "re true, (he

Almos'. at the outset of the debate a
lively clash between Senator Overman
and Senator Cummins, of Iowa, took
pince when Senator Cummins .-aid the
President, under the bill, could take
away or transfer all powers and func
tions of the Interstate Commerce Com
mission. Federal Reserve Hoard. Fed
eral Trade Commission and similar
agencies.
Senator Overman asked If Senator
Cummins would be willing to abolish
such agencies if it is neces-ary to win
the war. The Iowa Senator replied
;j?fhrrnalively, adding:
"Rut I believe |t is not necessary, '
and if the powers are granted it would
be an influential step toward destroy
ing the Union."
"The Senator says 'I mistrust, my
commander-in-chief and have no con

ator Overman replied. "1 the
Senator will not press me to?> far or,
too closely about my confidence in the'

sharply. "1 have utmost conscience in

grant such great powers to any Pres

WASHINGTON. April 2.?Germany Is'
blockading Spain n itti submarines in
;in effort to prevent, that country con
siirnmat. ng nny agreement with the
allies wliicli would ronvert Spanish
shipping to their use": In the same
way according t <> the admission ot
Holland's own representatives in l<cn
don. Germany prevented the consum
mation of a voluntary agreement with
the Netherlands
Moth statements were trade in high
official qanru.-s to-day. They were
cited to show the reasons for the
vigorous action necessary for the
United States and Kngiand to cio.se
nfr tin* long' pending- negotiations with*
Holland for her idle, tonnage.
Robert Otis Hayward. representative
of the War Trade Hoard at the Lon
don conference with the Dutch, tr>
day stated that in his presence the
chairman of the Hutch commission cle
clarrd that German pressure prevented
Hollands carrying- out the terms of
the proposed agreement. It was only
after this admission. according to Mr.;
I try ward, that the United States and
Kngland notified Holland that they |
v r.uId act to close the agreement by j
requisitioning the ships within one
week. This time was extended to two
weeks on a request from the. Dutch
government.
It is admitted that Germany's action
in ordering her submarines to turn
back or to sink Spanish vessels bound
[or the United States will complicate
the negotiations with Sj>ain. It is
pointed out. however, that the only
effect of Germany's #iction will bo
hardship for Spain. Spanish industries
cannot get along without the cotton

Now at Hand.

Resolution Declaring Against Tur

United States Senate.
With iti" passing of the thirteenth
'lay of the nfw battle of the .So mm a
there came increasing: evidence that
? 11P great German machine with which
it. ??<!s intended to crush the allied line
! has almost utterly spent itself.
Where previously the Germans had
thrown men into the fray, not counting
tha prodigious wastage in killed or
wounded. Tuesday saw them decline
anywhere to give battle, tin the con
Mary. in what iittle fighting occurred,
.the French troops took the initiative.
Thus it seems apparent, with the re
serve. forces of the entente virtually
intact, and with the added weight Gen
eral Pershing's troops will give them,
the turn in the tide of the battle is at
I hand.
While admittedly both the French
and British armies have suffered rather
, severe casualties as they stood vali
antly to their task of impeding the.
Germans anil making them pay an un
heard-of price for every foot of ground
gained, their reserves have been con
served with the. utmost care behind the
lines for the fateful time when the
withering force of the allied guns and
machine guns should have so blighted
the German hordes as to bring more
equality in strength to the fighting
forces. And nil along the British a
French commanders have not left out
side their calculations that stanch band
of Americans, exceeding I Oil,000 men,
who arc fully trained and equipped and
anxious to lend their aid in the task
of defeating the Germans.
Daily the German losses in men killed
or wounded continue to augment as de
tails arc obtained from tho Germans
made prisoner. Some divisions lost as
high as TO per cent of their effectives
as they charged in mass formation
against the British and French machines
gunners and riflemen. Companies with
drew from the. fighting with their com
bative strength reduced to forty men.

The latest accounts of the righting
f:oni th* various war chancclories
: how no new Important change in ths
' battle front. Only minor operation*
took place <",n that portion of the front
tsouth of Arras held by the Hrltish.
an?l little aside from artillery duelH
occurred between the French and tlis
j Germans on the lower end of the line.
The lighting between the bis suns was
1 particularly heavy between Montdidler
and N'oyon, where the battle line bends
eastward, and which is a danger spot
of great Importance to the Germans,
the breaking through of which by the
French would necessitate a rapid
I withdrawal of the Germans eastward
from the Amiens sector.
Although the Germans have been
bombarding British positions in Bel
gium. particularly at I'asschendacle
and along the Goeberg Ridge, north
east of ^ pres. there is no indication
as yet that an Infantry attack is con
templated. In addition to a continua
tion of their bombardment of Paris
with a long-range gun. the Germans
again have endeavored to drop homba
on the French capital from airplanes.
Two squadrons of aircraft early Tues
day morning attempted to reach Parl.J,
but the French barrage held them off.
