HUNS WANT JUSTICE
ONLY, LATEST CLAIM
Count Brociuiorff-Rantzau Com
plaint Against Proposed Terms.
Paris, Fob. 10.?"I believe a reoon
dilation of the peoples of the cen
tral powers and the entente can be
effected only If a peace of right and
Justice Is made." declared Count
Brockdorff-Rantxau. a German for
eign secretary, in an interview with
the Weimar correspondent of the
Matin.
"fou want to take from us the
results of fifty years' work in Alsace
Lorraine," he continued. "We seek
only -an equitable peace. The huge
majority of the Oerman people have
no thought of revenge. Every one,
however. ha? . the impression that
France is to profit by the armistice
negotiations by making it appear we
admitted the Justice of its terms."
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. Shippers say

'NO WW. 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."
