Cablegram to The Evening: Star and Chicago Dally News. Copyright, 19IS. WITH THE FRENCH ARMIES. March 25.?Sensational documents showing how Germany early in the war en deavored to break the enemies* mor ale by inspiring sabotage, strikes and anarchy have fallen into the hands of the French staff. The measures were to extend to the United States and other countries, then neutral. Novem ber 2. 1914, German headquarters sent the following notice to all military agents on the frontiers of France and Germany: "Special military credits destfried to serve accessory war purposes have been opened in all the German banks and their branches in Sweden, Norway, Switzerland and the United States. Headquarters authorizes you to make unlimited use of these credits to de stroy factories, works, depots and sup plies both military and civil, belonging to the enemy. While endeavoring to foment strikes it is also needful to take measures toward damaging motors and machinery, toward destroying ships carrying war material to the enemy countries, toward burning stocks of raw materials and manufactured goods and toward depriving the great popula tion centers of electricity, fuel and foodstuffs. Special agents placed at your disposal will supply you with the material needed to cause explosions and fires, and also with a list of the persona in the country to which you are accredited, who will undertake to act as destruction agents." To Organize Explosions on Ships. Another circnlar, dated 'November -K. 11*14. emanating from the minister of marine and addressed to German agents abroad, contains tbese state ments: "It is indispensable through the in termediary of the third persons hav ing no relations with the official rep resentatives of Germany to recruit u(rents, to organize explosions on ships sailing for enemy ports and cause de lays and confusion in the loading, sail ing and unloading of these ships. To this end we particularly commend your attention to stevedores, of whom manv are anarchistic and criminals."' In a note dated January 15. 1915 the attention of German military agents in the United States Is invited "to the possibility of recruiting de struction agents among the anarchists' and workmen's organizations." In February of the same year the for :ign office wrote to the German ambas sadors, ministers and consuls in the leutral countries, as follows: Bureaus for Strikes and "Peace." ?Special bureaus for the organiza tion of propaganda in the countries of the coalition at war with Germany ire being founded in the territory of the country t<f which you are ac credited. The object of this propa ganda will be to provoke social unrest accompanied by strikes, revolutionary outbreaks, separatist movements and civil war; also agitation in favor of disarmament and the cessation of this sanguinary war." On September* 25, 1916, headquarters wrote to German agents on the Russo Swedish frontier: "You should immediately recruit de struction agents among the Finns, who have expressed a desire to join the German army, and send them to Petro grad, and the new railway concentra tion centers to execute the program transmitted to you by military agents." CONGRESS MAY ORDER TRAINING OF YOUNG MEN Senator Hew Advocates the Eegis tration of All Between Nineteen and Twenty Tear*. The plan for universal military train* ing In this country for young men of nineteen and twenty Is daily saining strength In Congress. When Senator Harry New of Indiana addressed the Senate yesterday afternoon In support of his amendment to the bill for the registration of those men who have be come twenty-one years of age since June 5, the date of the draft registra tion, which would put into training all men nineteen to twenty-one. Senator Thomas of Colorado, hitherto an op ponent of universal military training, announced that he had been converted to the necessity of it. Other senators who declared them selves favorable to the New amendment were Senators Myers of Montana and Ashurst of Arizona. Senator New's Opionion. "It is my deliberate judgment," said Senator New, "that had the measure for which this amendment provides been made a matter of national policy when it was suggested to this body three years or more ago, by my friend. Senator Chamberlain, and accompanied by substantial industrial preparation as it should have been, this country would have been in condition to take such a part in the war upon its entrance as a belligerent that we would have before this been able to force a peace that would have been satisfactory and whol ly creditable to the United States. There would have been no collapse in north ern Italy, no Russian debacle. The saving in life and in money would have been beyond measure. Had we earlier devoted our energies toward prepara tion for war other than to issuing pro nouncements of terms on which we would make peace we would now be much nearer the day when our voice as to terms would command and re ceive more attention. But objection, sentiment, hesitancy combined to nre even *PProximated preparation with a result that is now apparent?appallingly so." CLARENCE X. GILLOTT DDES.

S. Should Put 5,000,000 Soldiers in Training and "Hurry" Hall That Number to Erance. The vital need of the allies on the western front Is "men and mora men," was the message which MaJ.' Gen. Leon art* Wood. I*. S. A., yesterday afternoon brought to the Senate military affairs committee straight from the battle front. With as little delay as possible. Gen. Wood said, the United States should put into training 5.000.000 men. At least 2, 500,000 men should be hurried to France as soon as they can be got ready, he said. For several hours Gen. Wood talked to the senators behind closed doors. He spoke particularly of the part this coun try must play. Man power is diminishing with the al lies on the western front. The French and the British are outnumbered bv tbe Germans, he said, now that Russia has been eliminated from the situation. The call, therefore, is for American soldiers. I (.'en. Wood said he regarded the Na Jonal Army as a splendid body cf men. ! drawn, as it is, from the best in the country He would have it shipped to Prance as fast as the boats to carry it can be procured. In this connection he dwelt upon the ! great need of speeding: up the produc tion of ships in this country. Is Sure Allies Will Halt Hun Drive. I J*1* .Prcsent German drive. Gen. Wood said he was confident it would be halted by the British line. The ad vance made by the Germans was to be expected In such an attack. The Brit ish have intrenched positions in their j rear to which they may fall back if 1 it becomes necessary, and still hold the ! enemy. He predicted that the Germans who ft."*" themselves forward into the British line will find themselves in a worse position than tht- British be fore long, more or less cut off as thev are from their base. The British, he said, have hesitated to throw their re. serves into counter attacks until the Germans have pone far enough to com mit themselves to this drive. But counter attacks will come swiftly, he predicted, and with success. Gen. Pershing's army. Gen. Wood saJd. is a splendid body of men, but far too small. It is splendidly trained and its morale is admirable. But it has no combat airplanes cf its own. The Americans must rely upon the French for these airplanes, and the French have need of their own airplanes. In consequence, the American line at times has been practically without airplane protection. The German planes have flown almost at will over the lines and have come so low that they have been flred at with revolvers by the Ameri cans in the trenches. Aviation Situation Serious. He admitted that the aviation situa tion. so far as the American Army is concerned, is serious. Gen. Wood ad vocated the building of combat air planes in France. The raw material should be shipped as fast as possible to the other side, where skilled men conld handle it. While he admitted that he was not infbrmed in all the i details abotit the liberty motor. Gen. "Wood said he believed the motors now used abroad would be better for combat machines, unless perhaps the twelve cylinder liberty motor may prove more efficient. Planes driven by the liberty motors, he said, might well be used for bombing expeditions. Pershing's army not only has not a combat airplane of its own, he said, but it has not a single piece of heavy ordnance made in this country. So far as the latter is concerned, he "added, it did not matter so much, for the French and the British factories have an ample capacity to turn out the guns for the American Army as well as their own forces. Gen. Wood believes, however, that it is of vital importance that this country proceed to turn out at the greatest possible speed all the guns and air planes it can. All of the war industries here should be speeded up. Gen. Wood laid stress upon the need for training the American Army to fight in the open as well as in trench warfare. Sooner or later, he said, either the allies or the Germans would break through and the flghting would have to come in the open. Another recommendation of Gen. Wood's was that the general staff here should be enlarged, and that its advice should be carefully heeded by the War Department. He commented upon the large and efficient stafi with which Gen. Pershing has sur rounded himself. Urges Universal Training. Gen. Wood strongly advocated universal I military training. He told the committee i that it should be begun without delay, j It is folly, he said, to hold to the rule of ; liability of military service and not pre pare tne men to serve and flgfct efficient ly Unite<1 State*. he said, is going | Ar?y **0? this war is over, and the way to get it as quickly as P??sft>le and have It efficient is to adopt fhHyr. tFSiDing h* 8enato?'

Man power, he indicated would be decisive and the United States would have to do its full part in this mat ? Report Gratifies Senators. The senators heard Gen. Wood's state ment with the keenest interest de^arl ]ng arterward that his story hid given information than any whTcS has yet been presented to them In their t-k 1n of th? cond"ct of the war declared d!,8<? h'? aeciarea that it had vindicated charges made on the Hoor of the lenSe by Senator Chamberlain that the War Department had "fallen down." He discussed for the committee the reports of the big: gun with which the Germans have been shelling Paris, ac ; cording to reports. Gen. Wood declared that if such a gun had really been con structed, it was more of a "freak" jthar an efficient engine of war. FORMER RUSSIAN HEIR IS ILL IN FAR-OFF SIBERIA Mother Asks Aid?Train Service, Moscow to Berlin, Is Established. By the Associated PreM. MOSCOW. Thursday. Munch 21,?For mer Empress Alexandra has requested per mission from the soviet government to send the former heir to the throne, Alexis Ro-: manoff, to a sanitarium in southern Rus sia. as his physicians say that his so- j journ in Siberia is impairing his health. | The government commissioners are consid- . eimg the application. M. Dibenko, the former commissioner of marine, has been imprisoned in the Krem lin. charged with failure to obey orders and advance while commanding troops sent to resist the German entry into Nar va. He will be tried by a revolutionary tribunal. Wholesale Bribery Charged. Orders have been issued for the arrest of eleven heads of bureaus in the food ministry, charged with bribery, specula tion, the illegal appropriation of money and incompetency. Several of the accused men escaped before the order to arrest them could be carried out Prices of manufac.tuJred articles in Rus sian cities fell slightly with the signing of the peace, but food prices were not af fected. The shortage of money is forcing merchants to sell goods to raise actual casli for their expenses, and this is said to have been partly responsible for the de cline in prices. Woolen goods and heavy shoes are dropping in price, probably, in part, because-of the mild weather. M. Menjinsky, the commissioner of finance, has been endeavoring to re lieve the shortage of the circulating medium by having the government pay the Petrograd workmen in checks, but the workmen have refused to accept them. Making1 .Levies on Capitalists. The eoviets in many cities are forc ing the merchants to deposit their re ceipts in the banks, and are making levies on the capitalists to provide the banks with currency. Capt. Leo Schmand and Lieut. Beer ger, representing the Germap Red Cross* have arrived in Petrograd, where tfeey are working with the Swedish legation in an investigation of the condition of German war prisoners preparatory to their ex change. Kiev has been virtually isolated from Russia since the German occupation of the city. Herr Mumm is directing af fairs there as Germany's special rep resentative. ? Train Service With Berlin Again. Direct train service with Berlin and Vienna has been established and the newspapers are printing chiefly Ger man dispatches. German money is cir culating freely in the town, with the rate of exchange 70 kopecks to one mark. Ukrainian prisoners are daily arriving from Germany and Austria. There is an unconfirmed report that Prince Lvoff, the former premier, had been arrested at Tumen, Siberia, and taken to Ekaterinburg. Prince LvofTs relatives say he had nothing* to do with the alleged plots to create a separate Siberian government and was living quietly afnd avoidirtg participation in I politics. . i A Petrograd dispatch on Afarch 14 i reported that Prince Lvoff had been , arrested by the commander of the Rus- j si an northern front. He had previously been reported as having formed a new government in the east and planning to enter Siberia with the Japanese should they intervene. AUSTRIANS AIDING IN WESTERN FRONT DRIVE GENEVA, March 24.?There has been some doubt expressed in the entente press recently as to whether Austria rej.lly was taking an active part in the western offensive. Vienna papers clear up this point, stating that the Austrian emperor has Just returned to Vienna after visiting Austrian troops on the Flanders front. PLAIT HEW BLACK SEA HACT. Germans to Construct Helgoland on Snake Island, Says Report. AMSTERDAM. March 5 (by mail).? i A new Helgoland, to command the commerce of the Black sea, is to be | constructed by Germany on Sn&ke I Island, about twenty-five miles from the mouth of the Danube, according to the Nachrichten of Hamburg. In connection with this proposal it it planned to build a German commer cial port on the northern bank of the Danube. The advantage of this loca tion would be, the newspaper says, that it would enable Germany "to limit Ru manian control in Bessarabia and es tablish a permanent post of observa l tion over the country." ?' ?

ROME* Friday. March 22.?Apprecia tion of the treatment accorded him during his fortnight's stay in Rome was express ed by Oscar T. Crosby of the American mission, and president of the interallied council which deals with finances and war purchases, before his departure for Paris. Mr. Crosby during: his visit has been solv ing questions regarding finances and sup plies in conferences with the Italian min ister of the treasury, Francesco Nittl. "The discharge of my duty here has been rendered delightful by the thoughtful cour I tesy of the Italian officials and the friend ly help of Ambassador Page and his staff and of the American Red Cross officials," said Mr. Crosby in a statement to ttie As sociated Press. "The mutually warm feeling between ! these representatives of America and the : Italian officials?in fact, the whole Italia!) , nation?is the one special feature- of the situation causing me the greatest pleasure and ."--uggesting a solidarity of action and feeling between the two countries which 1 will continue after the war and grow more intimate in their future international re lations. Italy to Remain Steadfast. | "The important and encouraging j fact is that, despite the shortage of j coal and the temporary shortage of foodstuffs, there is in Italy a calm de- j termination to meet steadfastly what ever fate the war may bring and to j continue to play the great part Italy ! has assumed in the conflict. It would be foolish, to minimize on the military side ihe Italian reverse of last October, but it would be equally foolish to ignore the fact that from that reverse grew a spirit showing that modern Italy had neither forgotten her tra ditions nor lost the spirit of the glori ous past belonging peculiarly to her, but which is aJso the precious pos session of European civilization. "In Naples I could see that the popu lation was bearing calmly, almost smilingly, the strain of the bread shortage, and also that Austrian air raids were now accepted a% probable events, and not in the least viewed as catastrophes. Will Accord Her Praise. "When a careful analysis is possible of what Italy has accomplished with her small amount of coal the students of the situation will undoubtedly ac cord her hearty praise for her accom plishment. "^Whatever differences existed when Italy declared war, there now seems to be a universal devotion to the idea that the war shall be waged with all of Italy's strength- She is meeting her sacrifices with a good natured forti tude which is a*1 example to others. The Italian activities are directed not merely tsr the national ends, but to the larger end pursued by her Ajnerican and European allies. "In tfie light of my varied experiences as an explorer in various parts of the world," concluded Mr. Crosby, "I can say that the allies as a combined body of people have a large margin for their subsistence and comfort." Fails to Pass Physical Test. Honorable discharge of Brig. Gen. William V. McMaken of Ohio from military service is announced in Army orders. Gen. McMaken was found by a medical board physically unfit for j active field service. 1 REGARDED PARIS AS "SOME CITY," BUT NOT IN WASHINGTON CLASS HYATTSVILLE, Md., March 25.?Paul S. Jack of the Army Medical Corps, sta tioned "over there," in a letter to a friend here declares Paris some city, but, in his estimation, not in the class with Washington. Young Jack, who sailed about two months ago, is a nephew of David L,ynn, assistant super intendent of the United States Capitol. Continuing, Jack writes: "It is very difficult for me to realize "that I am way over here on this side of the earth when such a short time ago I was back there among my friends enjoying myself. "We left New York on a veritable giant of a ship. I understand it was pretty close to 550 feet long, with a beam of eighty feet. About six days out we encountered a very bad storm, and even that gr#at ship did some aw ful rearing and bucking. The storm lasted four or Ave days, and long be fore it was over the majority of the men were sick. I am mighty glad to say that I didn't fall by the wayside. I sure got an awful ducking one morn ing, though. Just as I stepped out on deck a huge wave came over the rail and knocked me clear back through the door. We were over a week longer on the water than I had expected, so by the time we reached land we sure were tired of ocean travel We weren't bothered at all by the "subs" and. no jone was much worried about them, j "We landed in quite a large city and entrained for a camp the day we landed. We were on the train only twenty-four hours. Only remained at this camp a few days and were then sent up here. This really is quite a beautiful city. We are in the'midst of the rainy sea son now. I would like to describe the French people, but it is far beyond my ability. They certainly are splendid. I You sure see some strange sights here." " . ?? ? ? KEWJJUHED KA1UTBT. Lieut Danes, U. 8.
