AMSTERDAM. January 6.?A strong
movement lis developing- In Germany
to replace the ex-Kalser on the throne.
All non-Socialists newspapers are re
ferring to him not as the "ex-Kaiser,"

Tiie Deutsche Tages Zcitung (Count

tilde toward the ex-monarch. "
! "Our poor Kaiser, wo have been un
i fair to him," Is a general saying.
This seems to show that very many
! people In Germany, having had a taste
of republicanism are already sick of
! It. While Wilhelm is remaining quii?t
! himself at Amerongen, "sick, deject
1 ed and discouraged," German public
' opinion is being slowly prepared for

AHSKRTIO\S AltK MADE
THAT tiKBMAN Y IS .NOT BEATEN
The chief .-ounts against the ex
Kaiser were Germany's defeat and his
flight to Holland. Every one excepting
ihe Socialists Is now trying to con
vince the world that the flight was in
spired only by loftiest patriotism, while
the "entente fable" of Germany's de
feat has long been disposed of by the
Socialist government themselves, so
the Imperial slate seems to be wiped
clean again.
While the ex-Kaiser is permitted
10 remain in Holland the German re
public is unsafe.

, from l'osen. the German garrison and
all the airplanes were captured after
, a light.
1'olish troops have occupied the rall
; way station at VhroschmK, four miles
from Bcntschen, and have sent an ulti

the latter place, demanding that he
surrender. The demand has been re
fused and the Germans will defend
' Bcntschen at all costs, according to
the Tageiilatt. a Berlin dispatch under
date oi Sunday saj'B.
(Bentschen is a town near the
boundary between the Provinces of
l'osen and Brandenburg, and is aoout
forty-three miles southwest of l'osen.)
Capture of Bcntschen by the. Poles
? would be most serious for Berlin and
all of Northern Germany. It:, .oss to the
I Poles would cut communication be
. tween Berlin and Silesia, and would
! endanger the provisioning of Frank

WARSAW, January 6.?Ignace Jan
Padcrewski has found General Joseph
Pilsudski. the Polish military dictator,
will not give up his authority in Po
land a? the present time. The two
Polish leaders have had an interview,
which, it is indicated, was unsatisfac
tory. ..
Padcrewski came to Poland as the
representative of 4.000,000 Poles, from
whom he has received plenary pow
I crs. he says. He claims to havo the
| power to make loans to the Polish
, government, and also to be the repre
I aenta'.ive at Paris of the Polish com
i mis tee.
He is said to have borne messages
from the allies to the effect that the
Pilsudeki government is not to be rec
ognized. as it represents less than
one-tenth of the people, it is alleged.
General Pilsudski is said to have
flatly refused to form a new Cabinet,
| and Paderewski has announced that
1 he will be unable to work with Pil
j sudski.
I Paderewski aLso appears to be in
' favor of sending from France all tho
troops available, including Polish
American units. lie would depend on

FOR ROOSEVELT
Names of Generals Pershing and
Wood Arc Mentioned as
Possibilities.
PARTY LEADERS ARE AT SEA
Believe Selection of Military Man
as Candidate Will Add
Strength to Tickct.
Vi'ASIII.N'fjTOX, January C.?"Upon
v> ho:u will fall the mantle of Roose
velt's leadership of the Republican
party?"
This question was fif(|uenlly asked
to-day in tin* halls of the Capitol ami
In other public places. Although it
had l>een known for some time that .
I.clonal It'jobcvolt was 111. there was
no reason to believe the end was so .
near.
It was confidently expected that he
; had a Rood many years to live, ami
Republicans generally conceded that if !
he did not become their nominee for
the presidency in 1920. at least his
word and counsel would go a long way .
toward deciding who the nominee .
, should be.
.'Sven among those members of the
party inclined to harbor revenue for I
the Progressive walkout, from the 1012
convention it was pretty well rceos- ,
nized that Colonel Roo'sevrlt would :
have to be heard and that the n>ini- ,
nee would have to be acceptable to
him.
wkiu: itr.\m to iiami
.\OMI.V\TIO.\ TO IIOOSKYKI.T '
It has even been said that Senator
Penrose, of Pennsylvania, who guided
the "steam roller" over the Colonel and
his followers at the Chicago conven
tion. was ready to hatn; the nomina
tion next year to Roosevelt if lie would >
1 accept it. Senator Lodge, of Mas
sachusc-tts, who presided over the plat
form committee in that convention,
also swung around to firm friendship
! for the Colonel.
In the gossip to-day on the subject ,
t of Roosevelt's successor as leader of !
the party, three names stood out with \
prominence. First among the three is !
the name of General John .1. Pershing. |
Then comes General Leonard A. Wood, i
who for a brief time loomed as ;i i
i "dark horse" at the Chicago conven
; tion of 1016 which nominated Justice
1 Hughes. ,
The policy of selecting a military;
man as leader of the party has hecil
impressed upon those who" guide the
party's affairs at this end. General
Pershing, it is recognized, would be a
candidate of strength and power. The
only question agitating the minds of
the party leaders here is whether the
general has any intention or inclina
tion to go into politics.
i i*Kns|UNc; iiAn \o time
TO UOT11KII WITH POLITICS
' "Jt has been pretty definitely settled
that Pershing's leanings are toward
j the Republican Pgrty. although he has
i{?een A.SQldlcr^jBo long that', lie hasn't
J had much time to bother with polMWm
n candidate of thr Republican or
nny other party, which, of course.
| would eliminate him from considera
tion in connection with the partv lead
ership.
General Wood's experiences In the
present war have won him a large
amount of sympathy. Republican lead
j ers claim, and they may turn to him
| in the event General Pershing stays
out of it.
| Warren G. Harding. Senator from
(Ohio, is the third leading figure in the
! discussions of party leadership, lie
: made the keynote speech at the last
i Republican convention, and although
i at that time was generally looked upon 1
j a."/ one of the "old guard," his opinions
on many matters have changed, and
! now it i* said the Progressives would
: have no trouble in reconciling their
; political consciences with his leadcr
I ship. ,
It is understood that men like Sena
tors Watson, of Indiana: Borah, of
Idaho; Curtis, of Kansas, and Kenyon.
of Iowa, are willing to take up Hard
j ing as the legatee of Roosevelt, and
that others among the Progressives |
, would follow suit.
