FIGHT TO BE
MADE AGAINST DISLOYALISTS _ "War Till Victory/? Plea Presented to Congres sional Leaders. Lining up in th? light agalnet the election of disloyal men to Congres? next November, a delegation of th? League for National Unity presented a "war till victory'? plea today to Re publican and iJemocratle power? of the House. The Congressional representative? who listened to the plan were: Scott Kerri?. chairman of th? Democnitic National Congressional Commute?; Frank Wood?, chairman of the Ke publican National Congressional Com mittee; Claude Kltchin, majority leader, and Frederick Gillett. minority leader of the Houae. Ralph M. Kaa ley, chairman executive committee of the National Civic Federation: Wheeler P. Bloodgood. Loyalty Le gion. Milwaukee; Frank Morrison, secretary of the American Federation of Labor, and half a doxen others presented the plan. "No man ought to be nominated by either party of whom it is not cer tain that if elected he will support th? government tn its high resolve to destroy Prussian militarism and establish a lust and secured peace," the plea reads. "In order ?hat the next Congress may be undivldedly American and anti-Prussian. It will not suffice for tbe nation to vote for a better man or the less disloyal of two candidates on election day. It will be the business of the two dominant political parties generally, whatever their natural di visions may be as to domestic poli cies, to ensure that whoever be elect ed, every American district wLl be represented by an American patriot. "In the Interest of the nation we ?sk more. If in any district it tie comes likely that an anti-war candi date may be successful. It Is the Im perative duty of the two leading par tie? to effect a coalition at-ainst the non-American or anti-American can didate, in order to make certain his defeat. "If in any eonsressior? 1 or sena torial election there prove to be (langer of the election of disloyal can didates, it will become the duty of Americans, regardles of party affilia tions, to defeat such candidates and to set loyalty to the nation sbsive personal loyalty to ?he party. The defeat of men supporting the I*n*on in the congressional election of 1 ? did much to lengthen that war. and a like result in the elections of 18? and lf-4 would have enabled the disloy alists to put the 1'nton In peril."

At Ostend the airplane shed waa set afire. Eight German machines were hrought down." A right between a British seaplane and a Zeppelin over the North Sea alao is recounted. The Zeppelin was routed after half an hour's battle. The statement follows: "Our air force at Dunkirk between May 6 and 12 carried out operationa ? against the Ostend docks and sea plane base, as well as the Zecbrugge j mole, lock gates and enemy sh.ppin. : in the vicinity. I "Direct hits were obtained on the, ? sheds on the Zeebrugge mole. A large shed at Ostend was set afire. Six enemy machines were destroyed and two others were driven down. One of our machines Is missing. "On May 10 a British seaplane over the North Sea fought a patrolling Zeppelin. After a half hour's bat tle the Zeppelin retreated to its base. ' Kneny Still Mark* TIa_e. I-ondon, May 13.?Hindenburg's war machine continued to mark time to day, and there was less infantry* fighting, even on a purely local scale, than has been recorded in days, both In Picardy and Flanders. Among the troops at the front the notion was suggested that possibly the date ?May 13?deterred the German high command. Superstitions aa old aa this are ineradicable, and no wise general offends the susceptibilities of human nature among hie own forces, unnecessarily. The renewal of the German drive Is now regarded almost &a overdue. Military opinion is that It will start this week. (onmtrailoiB Effected. "AU the newa from the west front," says the Evening News, "indicates that we are on the eve of great events. Our scouts Jcnow that the enemy concentrations are neaiing completion." Slowly but steadily the gunfire all along the front between the Yser and the Oise, which comprises the area on which the great battle will be fought out, has been In creasing. , The British northern front, par ticularly the region above Kemmel, and the A ? re sector, southeast of Amiens, were the storm centers of the violent artillery duels through out the night and today. Neither the British nor the French war of fices report any Infantry actions In ? th? official night bulletin?. Tta? Oar reports also dealt exclusively with gun activity In tta? vital sector? of the batti? front. Au.tri?? ngeaslve Heart There la a well defined expecta tion In military circle? of an early outbreak of the expected Austrian offensive In Italy. On many ?Idea it la believed that this subject took up the greater part of the delibera tions at German headquarters tn th? field, between the two emperors and their adviser?. The Keneral theory I? that the drive against th? Italians Is to synchronize with the reopening of the Western battle. In local fight ing during the last week, especially in the last three days, the Italians hare decidedly held the upper hand. The Austrian?, according to Rome's ofllcial statement today, have been unable to retake the Monte Corno positions wrested from them Friday. Vienna reports the continuance of lively fighting actvlty on the mountain front. Germans Lot? Trees ?a Fin. Amsterdam.

Nfl Every Picture Tells a Story This one is no exception. The picture at the left, registering keen dis appointment and chagrin, may be turned into one of delight and complete satisfaction by the simple process of having the Washington Gas Light Co. install an Instantaneous Gas Water Heater in Your Home Will you forego the comfort and dehght of having always at your command piping hot water the year round when this comfort may be had at the trifling cost of a few cent? a day? You can't afford to deny yourself the luxury of hot water throughout the house, in the bath, the kitchen and the laundry, just because the furnace or kitchen range fires are "banked" for the summer. The Instantaneous Automatic Gas Water Heater will supply you with hot water at the turn of any hot water faucet, and in unlimited quan tities, too. People who have the Automatic Gas Water Heater in- ?_,, stalled in their homes say that if they could not procure another they would not part with their heater for any amount of money. Thus has it proven a boon and ite existence an mdispensable part of every modern household. . _____?,__, mm?rm*m?rm?SA$jfa " ' ^ ? ?> ^ Washington Gas Light Co. ^_ President. _________ ??? PAY FEARS BLOODSHED IN EMERALD ISLE Irish Conscription Without Home Rule May Bring ?Another Revolt. That Irlah conscription without Irian Home Rule might be followed by another ?Ester rebellion, or worse, wa? th? warning laat night of T. f. O'Connor, M. P.. and Irlah National ist leader. In the auditorium ot tne Department of the Interior before a large and distinguished audience. The meeting was under tb? ana pira? of a committee consisting of Senator H. C. Lodge, Senator Jamea l>. ."he Ian. Representative Jame? A. Ullllvan and Representative John Jacob Roger?. Mr. O'Connor, who ha? been In thla country alnee lsst July, Has announced his Intention of sailing for Ireland In the near future. "Ireland Is not opposed to consci Ip tlon in principle." declared Mr. O'Con nor. "The difference between Pre mier Lloyd George and the Irish peo ple I? not on the question of con scription, but on the means of con scription. Ireland want? her men conscripted by an Irish parliament, not by an English parliament. "Over 100,000 Irish boys lie dead un der the sands of Gallipoli, and un der the blooming popple? of Flanders. They were not only fighting for the freedom of the world; they thought that they were fighting for the free do mof Ireland. The freedom of Ire lend has not yet come! 'live Ireland her freedom," he plesded. Real.tane. May Be **>aaalve. "What method? resistance msy take," he said, "it is impossible to tell. I am inclined to believe that, as a rule. If conscription should be at tempted, the resistance would be paaslre rather than active; but it is Impossible to guarantee thst there will be no bloodshed. "Among the most prudent snd mod rate leaders of Ireland have been the bishops of the aCtholic Church and the members of the legal profession, and they have combined now with tre masses. In pledging themselves to re sist conscription. "What will It avail England to add W.W0 or 50.000 or 100.000 soldiers to her present gigantic army, if, in doing so. she estranges the men snd women of Ireland? For the women of Ireland. I may tell you. are Just today as the men. Will she not re quire as many soldiers to enforce^ conscription, diverted from the bat tle front, as she csn hope to gain by force?" Qaote. Other Leaders. Mr. O'Connor quoted from the speeches of various British states men, parliamentary leaders ?nd the British press, including Uojrd Georee. | Henderson, Asqulth, Redmond, the Marquis of Crewe, I?rd Buckmas ter. Lord I?nsdowne and Lord I'lun kett, in vonsensus ot censure of the unfulfilled promises of Knaland for Irish home rule, and apprehension of the result of conecriptton imposed by an English parliament, instead of by I an Irish one. ? "Surely." added Mr. O'Connor. "1 ( have a right to say. in the face of this consensus of English and Irish I opinion, that no man can be open to ? the charge of disloyalty to the cause of the allies, or hostility to England, becauae he presses what such distin guished opinion unites in declaring a rule of ruin." Free-ass af ?aaall I'r.plrs. Referring to the fact that the other British colonies bave exercised their own wills sa to whether they would furnish men by voluntary enlistment or by draft, and emphasizing the dan ger to both England and Ireland in losing the good opinion of the world, the one through refusing freedom to a small people in a war in which she professes to be fighting for the free dom of small peoples; the other through the appearance of slacking. Mr. O'Connor concluded with an ap peal to America to give counsel to England, In sympathy with her as well as with Ireland, to save them both from action that threatens to widen the ancient breach.
