JAPS DENY AID OFFER TO RUSS Embassy Declares No Men, Money or Munitions Were Mentioned at Omsk. The Japanese Embassy yesterday de nied cabled reports from Vladivostok that an offer of men. money and muni tions by Japan to the Omsk govern ment had been accepted by the Rus- I ?iani. The officials of the legation believe the report may have arisen through I expressions by leaders of the Omsk government, who sought to allay fears I of the Siberians that the government I would fall, following the proposed withdrawal of the allied troops. It was admitted at the State De partment that rumors have been heard that Japan was considering aid to the Omsk government but the rumors j have not been confirmed through any j official agency. It is pointed out that j it is highly unlikely that Japan would take such a step. It has been as sumed that Japan was using her of- I flees to persuade all factions of Russia ?o join in the Princes Island confer ence. i The State Department announced I yesterday that the total revenues of j the Omsk government for the last! six months of last year totaled 268. 000.000 rubles, or approximately $134, 000.000. It is believed that a large part of this collection was made possible through the administration aids given by the allies. Reports from Vladivostok received by the Department of Commerce, "how that the Omsk government has loaned about $3,1^0.000 to railroads in two months. The warehouses in Vladivostok contained 132.000 short tons of goods. The Commercial Si berian Co-operative Association re ports thnt in the coming year the ^>*">try can export about 77.000 short if materials.

NO WADDING' SLOGAN OF ITALIANS East Siders Complain Against Ban on Joy Water. New York. Feb. 10.?How an Italian wedding can be conducted without wine is seriously occupy ing the thoughts of msfiy residents in the Italian section of the East Side. No better proof may be need ed that some consider the problem incapable of solution than that "no wine, no wedding" signs popped in to view today in many places. They were even more conspicuous than the "No beer, no work" but tons as some were accompanied by pictures in colors, depicting a woe begone couple being spliced by a clergyman who looked as if he had come to conduct the funeral of a miser who had disinherited his relatives. * ' I Col. W. A. Starritt Says Chicago Speedway Hos pital Was Admirable. That "an Inside clique" antag onistic to Edward Hlnes had much to do with an unfavorable report to the War Department on the Chicago Speedway Hospital project came out In evidence given by Col. W. A. Starritt before the subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds yesterday. Col. Starritt had been sent to Chi cago to make an Investigation by C. Willing Hare, secretary to Assistant Secretary of War Crowell. "Is It not a fact," asked Judge Bennet of the witness, "that you. on your first day there Interviewed those who were on the committee of the Union League Club seven yearn ago In the little 'mix-up' about Ed ward Hlnes, and that you based your telegram to the War Depart ment solely on what they told your1 Calls Project Admirable. They did tell me he had been ?* pelled. but I wish to say that I then and do now say that the assertions that he would gain by the deal were not sustained. The Speedway pro ject was an admirable one for the government and they would have saved a great deal on It." He also testified to getting a re port handed to him from a Mr. Clark that he supposed came from J. Mil ton Trainees partner. MaJ. Voorhees testified that Jarvis Hunt, "a close business associate of both Trainer and Clark, was In terested in another hospital project and had told him that if approved he Intended to form a company to erect all government hospitals throughout the country. "Mr. Hunt Is not a 'close busi ness associate' of Mr. Trainer." said Mr. Adcock Trainer. "Hunt owns 40 per cent and Trainer and Clark fifty per cent of a sixteen-story office building In Chicago." replied Judge Bennet H. B. Wheelock, a Chicago achltect. testified that he was present In Jacob Newman s office and denied the testi mony of Trainer and Clark that George Shank had ofTered to pay them a commission. "No such conversation ever took place," he said. Then he told of meeting Mr. Trainer coming out of Col Frank Billings' ofBce and that the latter had told him two men had Just been In to see him on an other hospital plan. "I was not in Washington at the time." said Mr. Trainer arlalng, "and hence the meeting did not take place." "It did take place." said the witness pointing his finger at Mr. Trainer, "and furthermore you Introduced me to your companion at that time, Mr Ernest Graham." Trainer did not reply. Both sides will sum up today as to whether J. Milton Trainer attempted to solicit a bribe of JIOO.OOO from Ed ward Hlnes to "get the Speedway project off tho rocks." Eikimoi Got Flu fron Wkitet.
