President Wilson sptnt his first day back in the White House in revising the ad dress he is to dellver today to the Senatti. It is now in the hands of the printer and rumor had it that the President, much impressed with the warmth of the welcome he received yesterday from his^ fellow country- j men. occupied himself yesterday by adding a few punchy phrases to the stat* paper. Two weeks is now set as the limit of the President's stay in the Capital: then he will take the stump on behalf of the peace treaty and the covenant of the league of nations. His itinerary remains a secret simply because he has not yet accepted any of the re quests for his presence which have poured into the White House. Will Review Fleet. Only one date of the proposed trip, which will take from three to four weeks, is a certainty. The President has declared that he will be happy -to review the new Pacific fleet upon Its arrival in San Francisco, and It is due there August 5. The President Is ready. It was an nounced at the White House, to place himself unreservedly at the disposal of the Senate or any of its commit tees to answer whatever questions may be asked pertaining to the peace treaty and the league. By combining his address and per sonal appearance before Senate com mittees. chiefly the Foreign Relations | Committee. Mr. Wilson expects to "ccomplish much in the next fort* J night. He is certain, it was declared J yesterday afternoon, almost to the point of conviction, that he will be j successful in his flght for the league. 1 and his campaign of action has been mapped out.

This morning at 10:15 o'clock the President will be-^in his campniun. At that time he will grant an audi ence to the newipipor correspondents, and this, in iis-?if. is an unusual de parture.

July 9?The former kaiser has between a quarter and a half million dollars on deposit in two Lon don banks which he will never get Not only that, but nobody else be nides the banks is likely to get this money, unless Horatio Bottomley's bill, now before Parliament, forcing banks to disclose their unclaimed de posits. is passed. This information comes from two sources and was confirmed this aft ernoon by a member of Parliament who has made it his business to dig ( through the banks' barrier of silence and unearth valid evidence of ths j presence of Wiihelm's gold there since 1910 and 1913. respectively. He is planning to move for gov ernmental confiscation of the money if the above-meniionsd bill is passed. The revelation of Wiihelm's secret hoard serves to emphasise the an cient custom whicb the pending bill aims to destroy and which has con stituted a "prerogative" of British banks for hundreds of years, namely, that accounts, no matter how large, which are not claimed after the death or disappearance of the de positors. remain the banks' property unless legal evidence of the presence of such accounts is presented to the bank by the established heirs. It is a notorious fact that hun dreds of soldiers who have disap peared in war time have fattened the banks tremendously. Naturally, | the two banks in question are rigor ously fighting Bottomley's MIL Wets of Both Parties, with Administration Demo crats, Plan Campaign. WOULD FORCE BALLOT ,? ^ Special Rule May Be Sought To Bring Vote to End Wartime Provisions. 1 A determined fight to repeal war time prohibition will be launched by Administration Democrats and "w?ta" ot both parties when the en forcement bill now before the House is taken up for amendmnt. This move is being engineered by Representative Kitchen, Democratic leader in the last Congress. He has received many assurances of sup-1 port, but is doubtful whether the repeal amendment can get by a point of order?that it is not germane to the bill?which is certain to be made The Rules Committee may be asked to report out a special rule making the amendment in order, if this action should become necessary.! Representative Campbell, chairman1 of the committee, said yesterday that] he would not oppose the rule, but| the staunch "dry" members may be able to prevent favorable action. Two Ckaneea for V?<r. In any event, the repeal motion will have two chances of reaching a vote. The member of the House presiding over the Committee of the Whole will rule on the point of order when it is moved to strike out Title 1 of the en forcement bill, dealing with war-time prohibition, and Insert in lieu thereof the provisions for repeal of the original war-time act. If the first ruling sustains *he point of order, a motion to recommit the bill to the Judiciary Committee with instructions to re-report it with the repeal amendment included will be of fered when the bill comes up for Qnal passage in the House. Speaker till CONT1KUED ON P1GB luvtl SYMEHOLDS COP CORONER FREED Corporation Counsel Plans Action Against Police man Who Kiled Autoist.

Detective Sergeant Patrick O'Brien is named as complainant. Starr is charged with having shot and killed Leo A. McLeod, 16 years old. an employe of th? War Risk Bu reau, who, with three companions. Giles M. Jones. Jr.. 35 S street; Charles B. Stewart, 315 S street north east. and Albert Senior, eu Eighth street northeast, failed to obey his order to halt while they were speed ing down Pennsylvania avenue early Wednesday morning. Starr, think ing, he says, to puncture one of the tires of the automobile, shot once at the speeding au'? That bullet struck McLeod in the head, penetrating his skull. The party continued down the Ave nue to the Peace Monument, where it was discovered that young McLeod was unconscious. Stewart, owner and operator of the automobile, then hurried to the Emergency Hospital. Doctors saw that the youth was dy ing. and his father was notified and was with him at the end. * 1 Starr, who had been on the force only three weeks, made a report to Lieut. Lord, who suspended him. The three companions of McLeod were also held. Before the coroner's Jury It was brought out that one of the boys became unruly, and shouted for help.

The aid Is planned on a large scale, it was stated. The cor respondent adds that representa tions will be made to Congress to obtain the necessary powers. * Ambassador BakhmetefT will leave for the United States Satur 3 Truck-Loads v Of Peace Data To Back Wilson President Wilson did something else while in Eu rope beside posing for the "movies" and looking on while people cheered him. Three big army trucks filhtd with documents and papers relating to the Peace Conference were unloaded yesterday afternoon at (he White House. Immediate ly a small army of qfterks went to work to sort out the huge piles of tied-up papers and documents and put them in files. President Wilson does not intend to be "stumped" when it comes to data re lating to the league of na tions. When any Senator, or anyone else worth while wants to argue the why and wherefore of the league or any other subject of the Peace Conference, all the President has to do is to push a button and the ar gument is settled. In other words, the Peace Conference# insofar as America is affected, has been moved bodily to America. BRITISH ALONE WON, SAYS HAIG i ? Eminent English Chieftain Never Heard of Chateau Thierry, or Else Forgot. "Who won the war. who woo ? the | war?" The foolish perion cried; The British did. the British dM." | Sir Douglas Halg replied. Oen. Sir Douglas Hair has* said ft 1 a vain. Last night In a speech at | Newcastle. England, be told bU audi ence that**'after all. the British Empire won the war." Although the French I and Italians helped some, the brunt < of the struggle during the past two 1 yef rs was borne by the British forces. I the General said. '? t There was no reference to his fam ous message of appeal to America for help when the British army was 'fighting "with our backs against the wall." and was saved only by the onrush of the American troops. Secretary Baker was asked whether the War Department would make any formal rejoinder to Gen. Haig. and whether it would not produce records | from British staff officers attesting ito the service rendered by the United | States in winning the war. To these : inquiries. Secretary Baker replied : "Sir Douglas Haig was talking j to his own soldiers and to his own j people, just as all of us at home j have our own flrst In our minds. .The valor and endurance of the ' British in this war were great be I yond praise. The American sol dier made his own demonstration of his worth on European battle fields. and I have no doubt Sir Douglas Haig and all other observ-j I ers will bear cheerful testimony to ] his greatness." fedIrjOlerks HURT BY RIDER The Nolan minimum wage bill, providing S3 a day for Federal and District employes, received a seri ous setback yesterday afternoon when brought up for passage in the House. Representative Oood. of Iowa, to the surprise of many friends of the bill, offered an amendment which, if passed by the House, will materially offset the advantages which the hill carries for low salaried employes. The amendment was adopted in Committee of the Whole by a vote of 74 to 45. The Oood amendment provides that wherever the Nolan minimum wage of (1 per day, or (1.0(0 per year, ap plies, the 1240 temporary Increase granted by the last Congress as an addition to all salaries of (2.600 or lew shall be considered a part of the base pay. The effect of this Is to deny to the employes receiving between $100 and (1.M0 at least a part of the $240 increase. That Is to say, the 1900 employe, who since July 1 has been receiving the f!40 Increase, or $1,140 per year, and who should under the Nolan bill, as reported by the House Labor Committee, have his base pay raised to (1.0(0. with the ((140 In crease still coming to him. will con tinue to receive only 11.140, Instead of the fl.SS* he should otherwise ex pect. The (l.M? employe, who with the (240 Increase now has a salary of 11.244. will continue to'receive just that amount. Instead of receiv ing, under the Nolan bill. 11,0(0 as his baa* pan. with an addition of U4?. or a tota^of (1.120. j AMEND TREATY OR REJECT IT, IS PLANOFSENATE T Foes of Covenant Declare They Have Votes to Back Up Ultimatum. SHANTUNG AWARD IRKS President May Be Asked to Explain What Japan Gave For Vast Territory. 1 ' Thirty-eight Senators will vote against ratification of the treaty un less reservations on certain sections of the league of nations covenant are adopted, according to a new es timate made yesterday by anti league Senators. In other words, if the opponents of the league are unable to muster a majority for the reservations they will be able tq defeat ratification of the treaty by throwing against it five more votes than the number re quired to accomplish this result Moreover, it was stated with posi tiveness yesterday that the treaty will not be ratified without a com plete disavowal by the Senate of the award by the peace conference of the Shantung peninsula, with its 40.000,000 Chinese inhabitants, to Ja pan. This disavowal will be con tained in a separate resolution and will not be a part of the resolution containing the reservations on the covenant. Senator Medill McCormick, who has been keeping pretty close count on the way the Senators intend to vote, made this announcement. He believes that at least fifty votes will be cast In favor of the reservations, but if by any chance these should fail there will be thirty-eight who will oppose the treaty on the final roll call, in his opinion. Anti-league Senators declared they CONTINUED OX FACE ELEVEN. POLICE TACTICS IN FIEND SEARCH ANGERS NEGROES I Colored Residents Resent Invasion of Homes Without Warrant.

HANDBAGSGARES CAPITOL POLICE i | Capitol policemen are on the qui vlve for suspicious characters of the bombing variety. A small man, carrying a suspicious looking handbag, was apprehended yesterday afternoon in the Hail of Fame by a big Capitol "cop." The policeman demanded to know what was inside. The little fellow said he was willing to "open It up." He ex plained that he was a visitor and carried his belongings In the satchel, as he had not registered at any hotel and would only remain In Washington a few hours. The policeman having In mind the return of President Wilson and at tempts of anarchists to blow big boles in the Capltolian walls, led the visitor to the central east portloo of the Capitol and required him to deposit the grip at the feet of the marble effigy of Christopher Columbus, hold ing the globe aloft Then the stronger was permitted to proceed te the sev eral ahow places about the peat structure. $100,000 Duuie Dose by Fire.

Senator Sherman's declaration that food price# In Was hi net on can and will be regulated by law, pub llahed by The Washington Herald yeaterday, has riven hope to the lo cal consumers that relief from the prevailing high cost of living is in sight. The slogan, "Relief by regula tion." haa been adopted by individ uals and organisations. It seems to be the most feasible plan for re ducing the prices of commodities to an equitable basis. Retail dealers in the big markets asserted yester day that the probe should first be used on the commission markets, as they regulate both the prices and output of foodstuffs. Busy scenes were presented yes terday at the offices of the Civic Betterment Association. JOM H street, where many h?*ds of fam ilies called to register their com plaints. Another plan for meeting the high cost of living problem was pre sented to Col. George M. Mackin tosh. chairman of the Investigating committee, by a merchant who said he waa willing to establish in the District twenty-five fair-price stores wrecotoInsist ON 7-CENTFJIRE Carrier Con tends for In creased Rate in Addition To Transfer Charge. ? Not satiated with the t-eent trans fer only recently granted by the Public Utilities Commission, off-! ctala of the Washington Railway and Electric Company now win aaltTor a straight 7-cent rate in addition. With this decision comes word that the street railway company will ask that the City and Suburban, the Georgetown. Tenallytown and the Washington Interurban lines from now on will stand on their own feet. Member? of the Federation of Citi tens' Associations said last night that they would fight a 7-cent fare which would give the company the privilege of retaining the "-cent rate on trans fers. Attention is celled to the fact that these generous increases will fail, also, into the coffers of the Capital Traction Company, which asks no relief, because the Commission has ruled that if both companies did not gain, discrimination would be shown. With these latest petitions for re lief. which will soon be taken up with the Commission, no promises for Improvement, it is understood, will be made. NEWtSMOTHER HELPS DEFENSE Mrs. Lulu Burger Prepares To Wage Fight to Free Son. Los Angeles, Cal., July 9 Mrs. Lulu rfurger. of Indianapolis, mother of Harry S. New. Jr.. confessed slayer of his financee. Frieda Lesser, ar rived here today to arrange for the derense of New, who. she says, is the son of United States Senator New, of Indiana. "Senator New will come to Harry's defense." she said. "He will help. He hag the biggest heart in the world, and he cares a lot for both | of us. There is nothing so sacred j in the world as our love. He has | always been good to us. He has never denied that Harry is his son. He isn t the kind of a man to shirk I his responsibility." Mrs. Burger left the train at Pasa dena. where she was met by her daughter. New. half-sister. She visited her home and then came to Los Angeles by automobile directly to the office of New's attorney. While arrangements wer* being made for Mrs. Burger to be tsken to NeWs cell she collapsed and the visit was postponed.

July ?._.The allies sent three notes to the Austrian govern ment this afternoon dealing with the league oI nations, the repatria tion of Austrian diplomats In South America and economic quastloas In volved In the peace settlement. for the sale of metU, and produce. His prtoea have been celled to the attention of Senator Sherman for! comparison with some of the ex cessively high priccs charred in other establishments. Senator 8herman devoted much of his time yesterday to riving con side rati on to different phases of the foodstuff situation, as there was no session of the Senate. The recent wide fluctuations in food prices in the District, as riven by The Washington Herald have caused a widespread discussion of the Important question, and the dis covery has been made that neigh borhood stores can profiteer at will and without any restraining power. It is suggested that housewives and others note cases of excessive prices and be ready to report them to Senator Sherman's committee. One result of The Herald's quota tion of high and low prices was a sort of football rush of buyers to Georgetown stores and markets whose proprietors escape the de mands of the merciless middlemen and are enabled to sell edibles at prices much low* r than those of other sections. Huns Sign Away Future in a Bill Of Only 4 8 Words Weimar, July 9.?The bill ratifying the peace treaty is the briefest document of its kind in history.

"Article 2?This law be comes effective on the date of publication." EXPERTS LEAVE | PATENT OFFICE Attorney Charges Poor Pay Causes Many Valuable Men to Resign. The fact that many of tht most expert and valuable official* of the Patent Office have resigned within ? the last few years because of the meager salaries paid, was developed at a hearing before the House Com mittee on Patents yesterday. Frederick B. Fish, a well-known (patent attorney, testified that the salary situation in the office "is scandalous and disgraceful.** j The committee had under con sideration three bills providing for a reorganisation of the Patent Office and a change in its jurisdiction. One measure proposes to make it a gov ernment establishment, separated from the Interior Department or any other executive branch. An other bill proposes a general in crease of salaries, still another the establishment of a patent court of | appeals. Mr. Fish contended If the Patent Office is permitted to use the profit it is now making, the establishment can be made a life work with in creased efficiency and adequate pay for the expert employes. He re ferred to the special training need ' td by those employed in the patent service snd the ridiculously low sal | arles they receive. Mr. Fish rep I resents a special committee of the National Research Council, which , organisation favors the enactm^M ?of all three bills. REDS GRAB CONTROL OF ITALIAN CITIES Paris.
