\ ?mamphere of Friend linen*.
There were notable differences be
tween the one-hour session today and
the one at Versailles, where Germany
heard h?-r sentence. Though stern and
formal, i lay's gathering lacked the
? li.itinot atmosphere of mutual hostility
that marked the other. Observers
noted the milder form and tenor of
the "Tiger's" address today. But the
Miost conspicuous difference was in
i hearing of the Austrian plenipo
tentiaries from that of the Germans a!
!? u week- ago.
Count von Brockdorff- Hart tzau, the
Junker chief of the German deleaa- <
tioti. remained seated while he spoke.;

he s thoroughly conversant with the'
French lan^uave

nnd head of his country's plcnipoten- !
' arifs i" '? ^?- and bowed courteously
?vnd remained standing until he h-id
Tsiiishr-d. He spoke in French.
The tone of his reply, too. was radi
? -ill: ti rfercnt front Rantzau's. The
1 ttri voiced defiance and counter
? harper. Dr. Henner ?poke in a con
i i!iator> mood.
Intokrn Wllnonlan 1'rinclplc*.
In one important point. however, the
Austrian's oral replv followed ' mc
lines of the German verbal answer.
Itenner. liKa Rantzau. invoked the
"W'ilsotilan principles" as the true basis
oi peace.
Incidentally, he voiced the grati
tude of his countrymen to America's
food relief. franklj admitting that
without Mr. Hoover's efforts Austria
would have perished of starvation.
M. Clemenceau, president of the
peace conference, was the tirst promi
nent figure to arrive today at the meet
ing at which the terms of peace were
presented.
Secretary of State Lansing and
Henry White were the hrst American
representatives to arrive. Premier Or
lando. of Italy, and Premier Paderew
skl. of Poland, and Arthur J. Balfour
following.
At 12:10 o'clock, I'resident Wilson
hid not arrived, and the cereinonv of
presentation was delayed somewhat.
The President, however, reached St'
Germain at 12:11 o'clock. A puncture
in the tire of his automobile had held
him up on the way.
Com man deem Army Car.
President Wilson's automobile mis
hap occurred at St. Cloud. While the
punctured tire was being mended an
army car passed It was comman
deered by tha President's party, and
the President and Uear-Admiral Gray
son drove at high speed on to St. Ger
main
The Austrian representatives arrived
at 12:22 o'clock, entering the chamber
by a rear entrance. The delegates
were attired in conventlona 1 morning
dress.
The Austrians were cscortcd in by
an Italian officer.
Immediately upon their arrival at
12:22 o'clock the session was formally
opened by announcement of the head
usher.
Premier Clemenceau, president of the
peace conterenct, at once began his
rtddres"?.
M. Clemenceau spoke only three min
utes.
The hall was densely packed, many
of tho secretaries having been ad
mitted to the chamber, and the dense
ness of the throng detracted some
what from tho impressiveness of the
ceremony.
Premier Clemenceau spoke in French.
His remarks were translated into Eng
lish. then inlo Italian and then into
German.

Paul Dutasta, general ? secretary of
the peace conference, presented the

AUTHORITY IS CONCLUSIVE
1
Opinion Affects Litigations ;
Which Have Been Instituted
in Forty States.
I By Associated Ptoks 1
WASHINGTON', .fune 2. ? Increased j
railroad, telephone and telegraph rates
ordered by the railroad administra
tion and by the Postmaster-General, j
respectively, were sustained today by
the Supreme i.'ourt, which held that !
the war power conferred by Congress ,
upon the President included sweeping
control over the railroad and wire ays- |
tom.?, with "supreme and conclusive-'
authority to fix intrastate rates.
ThoBe questions were decided in two
opinions rendered by Chief Justice'
White, the "tie relative to the railroad i
rates beln* unanimous, while Justice'
Krandeis dissented 'r. the telephone
and telegraph decision, but without I
rendering a separate opinion. The
opinions affect litigations which nave ,
been instituted in about forty States
and which involve the validity of both j
rate orders.
Injunction* Are IllMiolvrd.
As a result of the court's opinion, !
injunctions restraining the director
4en>-r '1 of railroads from enforcing an
order increasing freight and passenger
rates in North Dakota were dissolved.
The court also upheld the ditsr. issal of
proceedings brought by Massachusetts
State authorities to prevent intrastate :
telephone rates in that State being in
creased and set aside Injunctions pre- J
venting advance of telephone rates in
South Dakota and telegraph rates in j
Illinois. In addition, the court also:
?iHmissed an original suit brought by |
the State of Kansas against the Post- ;
master-General seeking to have the
-ates prescribed l?y him in that State,
declared unreasonable and to prevent I
?hem from being made effective.
Control I'ndrr War I'otvem.
In deciding the cases, the court held i
that the resolutions under which the j
government took o\er control of these j
utilities, together with the President's '
proclamations and the railroad control
act gave the United States "complete
possession and control" under the war i
oowers, ami that Congress had a right
to confer these powers upon the Presi- .
dent.
'"On the face of the statutes." Chief!
Justice White said, in deciding the
railroad case, "it is manifest that they
were in term? based upon the war j
power, since the authority they pave
arose only because of the existence of
war and the -ight to exert .?uch au
thority was to cease upon the war's j
termination. To interpret, therefore. :
the exercise of the power b> a pre
sumption of the continuance of a State'
power limiting and controlling the na- ,
tional authority was but to deny its
existence."
Admit* (irnunfia for Contending;.
"Although it may be conceded." the
Chief Justice said in the telephone,
case, "that there ts son.'" ground for 1
contending, in view of the elements of
authority enumerated in the resolu- I
tion of Congress that there was power
given to take less than the whole if
the President deemed it best to do
so. we are of the opinion that au- ;
thority was conferred as to all the j
enumerated elements and that there ]
was hence a right in the Ptesident to i
take complete possession and control !
to enable the full operation of the I
lines embraced In the authority."
.Members of Congress regarded to- |
?lay's opinions with interfst and de- j
? ?lared the court's views would aid '
them greatly in formulati'ic ? ire and ;
railroad legislation. The Senate In-'
terstate Commerce Committee met to- j
day to consider the resolution ?*? Sen- !
ator Kellogg, of Minnesota, providing ]
for the repeal of the act under which i
the wires were taken ov?r and for the '
return of the properties to private
ownership on June 30. The commit
tee expects to report f*vor;?ply to
morrow a measure providing for the
turning back of the wire system*.

Secretary Daniels Says Trip Was

and Valuable Data Will He Com

I By Associated Press 1
WASHINGTON. June 2.?The Ameri
can naval seaplane NC-4, which arrived
at Plymouth, England, Saturday, there
by completing the first transatlantic
flight, will not attempt a non-stop or
any other kind of a flight back to the
United States. Secretary Daniels ?=aid
today. The seaplane will be dis
assembled and shipptd to this country.
The secretary said the navy con
templated no attempt at a non-stop
trans-ocean (light in the near future,
as the navy did not desire to make a
spectacular showing, when not in any
competition for transatlantic flight
honors and did not favor "stunt" (ly
ing.
Xnvy fiesta on t.nurel*.
Secretary Daniels declared that the
navy is content to rest on its laurels
for the present, and that the NC'-4 will
lie brought hack to this country on
board the U. S. S. Aroostook. The crews
will return later on board government
vessels.
The NC-4 flight was purely In the in
terest of aerial science, he said.
"After we have compiled all of the
data gatherer! during this flight, been
made confident by our mistakes and re
constructed our planes to conform
with the lesson we have learned, it will
then be titne to begin considering fur
ther experiment in transatlantic fly
ing. Until then we are satisfied," Sec
retary Daniels added.
Crew Mny Go to I'nrtn.
Asked If the crew of the. NO boat
would go to Paris, Secretary Daniels
said that they would go if "president
Wilson or Admiral Benson sent for
them. Otherwise they will return to
the United States shortly, and aviation
oflicials will begin the work of compil
ing the data contained and begin a
series of experiments in an effort to
place it in effect.
Experiments are now being conduct
ed with the 0 type of lighter-thun-air
flying craft, and it is possible that
when th; next attempt at a trans
oceanic tliglu does come, that one of
the big dirigibles will be used.
Messages of congratulation to the
navy upon the success of its exploit
were received today from King George,
of Epgland. the Brazilian Minister of
Marine, General Guglietnotti. in behalf
of the Italian army, and the British
air ministry.

ASI-fl N'GTON. June C.?Another at

against public officials who have been
active in their prosecution. wis
launched by American radicals shortly
before midnight Inst night.
A bomb explosion which damaged
the residence of Attornev-General A

northwest section of Washington, but
which apparently resulted only In the
death of the bomb planter, were fol

machinations, failed in evorv case to

however, families of public officials
and the public officials themselves ex
perienced narrow escapes. The death
toll of two taken in the Washington
and the Now ^ ork explosions recoiled
upon Instigators of the reign of ter
