cuisltionlng of animals, wagons, har
ness and automobiles necessary to
equip these armies and will oblige all
Frsnch reservists to obey to the letter
their new mobilisation schedules?
which Incidently were Issued only ten
d?ya ago, although prepared since the
armistice. The decree will Include the
calling of all colonial reservists an^ the
auxiliary services which sre never
touched save when the nation is on a
war basis.
While there may be some doubt as to
M. Brland's political slrength since he
made new concessions to Premier Lloyd
George at London, this doubt is dis
pelled by the promptness with which the
French Premier answered Mr. Lloyd
George and the fierceness of his de
nunciation of what he termed an "Eng
lish effort to shield the Germans at the
expense of our Polish friends."
The French press is solidly behind the
Government, while the man in the street
is expressing regret over the situation
but Is recalling the pre-Entente days
when "perfidious England" was a by
word in the mouths even of French
schoolboys. It is felt that M. Briand is
justified In his distinctly belligerent atti
tude by the gravest incidents occurring
on the German side.
Secret Service Hriiorla.
The French secret service reports to
day that 30,000 men, mostly Bavarians,
ar? concentrated near Kreuzberg, north
of the Polish outposts above Oppeln, all
armed and equipped for a campaign,
p th former German officers leading
them. Reports of the Gorman War Of
five, which have been obtained through
secret channels, show that Germany has
maintained secret ammunition depots
and weapons in Upper Silesia awaiting
such an occasion as was provided by
the Polish insurgents. There is also
veil developed plot reported to assassi
nate Adalbert Korfanty. the insurgent
leader, and to authorize the Reichswehr
to enter and combat allied forces if they
interefere.
Some of these documents have already
been published by the Rote f'ahmc, the
Communist organ, in Berlin, but the
French declare they have evidence
enough to convince any nation that
there Is a scheme afoot to crush Polatd
and weaken France by overthrowing the
treaty with the aid of Great Britain.
While French military officials aie
considering the probability of .using
force to bring Germany to time, there
is another question not to be ignored,
they say. There are now 60,000 Polish
troops lined up along the Upper Silesia
border, which could be used in the 1
event of an allied movement, but this
would leave the Poles in a different
position if Trotzky's recent agreement
with Berlin provided Red assistance in
the event of a Silcsian war. It is con
sidered likely, therefore, that as soon
as the French are forced to move east
ward the Poles will be anxious to get
behind their own frontiers and protect
their homes from two sides.
French Plan Shown.
The New York Hkrai.d correspondent j
lo-dav was shown a telegram from Gen.
l.erond in which the French project for
redistribution of territory is outlined,
l.erond considers the Polish and Ger
mans masses as distinctly separated,
l or Instance, he takes a line from the
northeast to the southwest frontier
which would leave Rosenberg in Ger
man territory, and then pass near Gross j
Strehlitz to gain the Oder River below j
Kesel and continuing along the Oder;
River to the Czech frontier, putting
' ppelu. Krappitz and Kosel in German
territory. By this plan Poland would
i eceive the territory in which she had
e plebiscite majority, which outside the !
i ities of Beuthen, Koningshutte, Katto- ]
v itz and Gleinwitz was more than 103.- j
OOP. Kven if these cities with German I
majorities were subtracted the Polish j
majority would still be more than 21,
(?94.
This will he the line Gen. I-orond will
vrge In th Interallied Commission
t other than the Korfanty line, which the
Trench consider to be too exaggerated,
but at tho same time not more than Po- j
1 ind is entitled to after having once been j
promised, they claim, the whole .Silcsian
province.
The French Foreign Office probably I
n ill issue another declaration to-morrow j
on the subject of upper Silesia, dealing I
with tho statement that it was half!
t romised to Germany if she would ac- |
(ept the London ultimatum, and designed
to meet the objection of British and 1
American bankers that Silcsian industry ;
is necessary to Germany's industrial
unity if her financial obligations are to :
he kept.
Tremier Brland in conversations to- j
<tay stressed the fact that Germany will
lack neither coal nor raw materials If:
tli? area contested is given to Poland.1
as the treaty provides that Germany!
must get normal supplies at normal
prices during the next fifteen years.
Another point which Is arousing
French anger is the statement attri
buted to ??eputable British correspond
ents her hat Premier Lloyd George
has asked all British newspapers not,
to print the French side of the aigu
ment The French Foreign Office this
morning declared that If true such ac-j
t on is Incomprehensible, ss in days of
uternational stress audi as these tho
peace of the world can best be served'
by a clear public understanding of all ]
points at issue.

LLOYD GEORGE IS
RAKED IN FRANCE
'His Cynicism Passes All Meas
ure,' Declares Clemen
eeau's Newspaper.
WARNING IiN THE 'TEMPS'
Paper Says French Could Not
Witness Passively German
Attack on Poles.
Paris. May 15.?French newspapers
to-day assail Prime Minister Lloyd
George's speech on the Upper Silesia sit
uation and uphold Premier Brland's
statements made in his Interview with
foreign correspondents here Saturday.
Former Premier Clemenceau's news
paper, //Homme Libre, remarks: "Mr.
Lloyd George's cynicism passes all meas
ure. It is an invitation for France to
massacre the Poles for the greater glory
and pro tit of Germany."
Tlio Temps says:
"Nothing remains to be said regard
ing the speech, but we must remember
it and work to the end that its effect
shall be as little injurious as possible to
the interests of our country and Euro
pean peace. We may consider that for
many reasons the reparations question
has ceased to be the cause of conflicts
in Europe.
"There remain but two dangerous
questions?disarmament and Upper Si
lesia. Concerning the latter, if German
troops more or less camouflaged should
Invade that region France, as she has
informed England, could not witness
passively a struggle between the Uelc^i
troops and the Poles'. Franco does not
desire such a solution, which must be
reached by Impartial and serene delib
eration when order is reestablished in
Upper Silesia.
Hopes for L'. 9. Support.
"We trust that our American friends
will render Justice to our alms."
The Intranaiffcant observes: "The mo
ment was illchosen to encourage Ger
many to exasperate the Poles, but if
Mr. Lloyd George has the right to ex
press his opinion M. Briand lost no time
in expressing his."
The Liberie says: "Germany is hesi
tating between the encouragement of
England and the menace from France."
The Internationale, the Communists'
organ, remarks: "Never sinco *Fa?hoda
has there been a discussion of this sort
between England and France."
The Petit Parieien notes that in his
answer the Premier Lloyd George em
phasis is made by Premier Brfand that
if the Poles are responsible In some
measure for the events in. Upper Silesia
it Is right to recognise that the Polish ;
Government adopted a corrective atti- ,
tude?namely, by closing the frontier.
"The French Government." aavs the !
Petit Pariaien, "asserts formally that its I
representatives In Upper Silesia never |
encouraged the policy of an aceom- |
pllshcd fact and denies thnt it ever had j
any intention to give, if needed, by i
force, the entire Sllcsian basin to Po- |
land."
Con Id Not Remain
Tho newspaper asserts tliat Franco
could not witness passively'armed inter
vention by Germany 1n Upper Silesia.
Tills would be considered by Franca as
a violation of the Treaty of Versailles
and consequently a casus belli.
If umanitr, the Socialist organ. inter-j
prets tho address of Lloyd George as !
meaning that "French capitalists will
occupy the Ruhr, and that Poland, 'the ,
vassal of Qua! d'Orsay.' will receive the !
Sllesian basin. Behold Germany ail
hut deprived of all its industries; behold
France assured of first place in Eu
rope !" It says. "This was the real slg
nlfleansn of Mr. Lloyd George's dis
course."
The words of Mr. Lloyd George are
described by the Kolair as "brutality
against France, and intended to encour
age German troops immediately to cross
the frontier."
Tlie Journal says: "The least that can
he drawn from the Knglish Premier's
speech is that it Is dangerous, as it mis
leads Germany Into believing she will
get what she desires, which certainly
she will not."
GOVERNOR OF BILBAO
AIDS EJECTED TENANTS
When Furniture la Thrown
Out, It Goes Bach Again.
Bilbao, Spain. May IS.?The Civil
Govsrnor is taking practical steps to
prevent landlords from ejecting tenants,
when the latter are unable to find other
dwellings. There is a great dearth of
dwelling places in this city, and, as a
?onioquen<:G. trouble has arisen between
the Governor and the judicial authori
ties.. In several instances yesterday the
sourts acceded to landlords' applications
to eject tenants, whose furniture was
thrown into the streets.
Almost Immediately members of the
Tenants' League carried the furniture
hack into the flats, while officials rep
resenting the Governor observed the pro
ceedings. The Judicial authorities tele
graphed (the Government railing at
tention to the Governor's disregard of
the legal action, but the Governor has
refused to change his attitude.

SUSPECT HYLAN IS IN
RACE FOR GOVERNOR
Politicians Believe Business
Business Men's League is
Aiming1 to Elevate Him.
Tli* announcement jostcrday by the
recently organised Business Men's
league that Its purpose is to begin at
once a Statewide agitation for "the elec
tion of a business man as the next Gov
ernor of New York," gave rise in poli
tical circles to the speculation that the
ultimate object possibly la to create a
machine for the elevation of Mayor
Hylan to the head of the State govern
ment.
Color to that view was found in the
fact that the president of the new or
ganization is Rreston T\ Lynn, general
manager of John Wans maker, of which
corporation Hodman Wanamaker, ad
viser to Mayor Hylan and chairman ot
the Mayor's yecefptlon committee, Is
vice-president and director. The fact
also that a statement Trom Mr. Lynn
yesterday followed closely the tenor of
the propaganda In vogue in Hylan
circles against Gov. Miller added further
support.
Mr. Lynn would not specify the candi
date he Is boosting further than to say
he would be a man of "horse sense" and
that it made no difference to his organ
ization whether the man was a Demo
crat or Republican. He also indicated
that while the Governshlp race is the
principal concern of the lengue, that or
ganization will be "most active In local
affairs" in the municipal campaign this
fall. Air. Lynn said:
"We find throughout the State, but
particularly in Now York city, a decided
sentiment for the election as Governor
of a man who lias business sense?horse
sense, if you eare to call it by so homely
a name. We find everywhere, among
men of all classes and of every political
creed, a determination to place in the
Capitol at Albany a inan who recognizes
the fact that Now York city is the groat
cat metropolis In the world and able to
govern itself.
"We find throughout the State a de
cided sentiment for home rule, because
every rural community realizes the dan
ger of establishing a precedent whereby
New York city is governed by up-State
Interests, or. on the other hand, whereby
up-State municipalities arc controlled by
New York.
"We are not looking for a man or
wealth who seeks to round out a career;
wo want a sturdy man of younger years
who Is willing to place his business ex
perience and energy at the disposal of
the people of New Vork State.
"This league of business men is or
ganised for the distinct purpose of sup
porting such a candidate, and It makes
no difference to us whether he Is a Dem
ocrat or a Republican. We believe the
candidate we shall select finally will be
the next Governor of this State because
ho will be a man big enough for this
great office and be absolutely Indepen
dent of the Interests which hsntpor self
government of the people as a whole."

a few miles of each Other.
The fact that In each case the eight ,

WHOLE COUNTRY VOTES
Socialist Vote Show Large De
crease?Fascisti Keep Or
der With Clubs.
K\t the Assooiated Press.
Romk. May 15.?General elections
were held throughout Italy to-day.
Members of Parliament were chosen, but
so far as related to the whole country
no definite rcstilts wore I n<>wn this eve
ning.
In Ronxe the Constitutionalists claimed
a great triumph. Houses were beflagged
and demonstrations were held In differ
ent quarters to celebrato the victory.
The great fight was between the Con
stitutionalists and Socialists. At Milan
the Socialists returned seventeen mem
bers, as compared with ten representa
tives of all other parties. At Turin the
Socialists elected 11; the Constitutional
ists, 5 ; the Catholics, or Popular Party.
3. At Florence, the Socialists, 8 ; Con-,
stltutlonallats. 3 ; Catholics, 3.
The Socialist vote, which was notice
ably dccreasod almost everywhere, was
even smaller where Communist candi
dates were on the ticket.
The Fascisti, or extreme Nationalists,
armed with clubs and other weapons,
maintained order In the most turbulent
di-U'lcts.
Fonr RIk Partlea In Contest.
Four main political parties?tno
Democratic Liberals, led by premier
Ololittl; the Popular or pro-CathoHca,
the Socialists and the new Nationalists,
the latter backed by the FascistI?each
divided Into more or less important
factions, engaged yesterday In one of
the gravest general elections held In
Italy in nearly seventy-five years.
The principal issue was to determine
to what extent radicalism would be up
held or opposed by the voters. Inci
dentally, It determines the actual
strength of the Socialist party, which,
at the last elections In November, 1919,
returned no less than 156 members to
the Chamber of Deputies. It has been
charged that this was more than their
constituency Justified.
Dissolution of tlio Italian Parliament,
ordered by tho King on April 7, fol
lowed more than seven months of pub
lic disorders due to strikes, Area and
bomb throwlngs and the seizure and
operation of factories by workmen in
various parts of the country, especially
in Lombardy.
These disturbances were followed by
the formation of more than 100.000
Fascist!, or antl-Bolshevlk Nationalists,
veterans and former Flume legionalrss
who since early In the present year
have engaged In a war of reprisal and
repression against the revolutionaries.
Many Fall in Street Bnttles.
On one "punitive expedition" the
Fascist! seized the Socialist Mayor of
San Sepolcro, cut off his beard and
inarched him through the streets. They
burned many radical Communist labor
headquarters and the Communists, In
turn, hoisted the rod flag over numerous
town halls. Many persons were killed
and wounded in battles in the streets.
Ololittl, now 78 years old, who had
been Premier and Minister of the In
terior In 1913. sgnln took the helm of
state on .Tune 18, 1920. Ills first effort
was directed to calming the mind of
labor. Italy was on the verge of an
Industrial upheaval. Communists in
many places throughout the country
seized railroads, docks, spinning mills,
tanneries, chemical works, banks and
other establishments and tried to oper
ate them. Th-?y had frequent clashes
with the troops. Peasants looted the
palaces of the wealthy snd confiscated
certain estates of the King before the
troops succeeded In dispersing them.
Ololittl, who at first mnlfltalned a
hands-oft policy and was quoted as hav
ing said that he was "opposed to vio
lence against the proletariat." called a
parlcyof the enffdoyers and workers at
Turin. There, as mediator, lie brought
about a truce by promising to Introduce
in the Chamber of Deputies a bill pro
viding that the workers should share in
the technical and financial management
of the factories.
Ha proposed u programme which in
cluded "the division of large estates
liito small farms by legal process and
the participation of workmen 1n the
management of industrial plants."
Communists Direct Sabotage.
Deapite Glolitti's efforts to bring about
[ peace, sporadic industrial outbreaks con
tinued, and in a number of instances
sabotage was alleged to have been prac
tices! through the Influence of Commu
nist agents.
Many employers, resenting Giolitt's
new policy, although not Involved in the
strikes, locked out their workers. On
two occasions the Premier sought and
received votes of confidence in the
Chamber of Deputies.
There was also considerable opposi
tion to (Jiolltti's plan to reduce the Ital
ian budget deficit, which was part of a
nollcy of rigid governmental economy
he had proposed. The Socialists also
questioned the attitude he had taken in
the London discussions of the German
reparations.
The industrial disorders continuing
despite the Government's order to the
authorities to suppress them, Giolittl
announced that he would dissolve the
Parliament and go before the people
again In a general election to determine
whether they approved or disapproved
of his policies.
MONK ILIODOR STIRS
RELIGIOUS FRENZY
Kiiftputin's Fot Makes Sensa
tional Harangue of Vast
Crowds in Russia.
By the Associated Press.
Riga, Latvia, May 15.?Amid the con
fusion attending the changes In Russia,
religious agitatrtrs are again active.
The notorious monk Iliodor (Hcliodorus)
is one of these. Before the war he was
the companion of Rasputin, but later
broke with him and fled to Sweden. He
exposed Rasputin in his diary. In which
he revealed Rasputin's alleged evil in
fluences in the court of the Russian .Em
peror.
The Moscow Troud says that on Palrr\
Sunday at Cathedral Square in Ttoarlt
zyn Iliodor appeared suddenly before
many thousands and fervently spoke
against tho official church. FVom tills
despatch in a Bolshevik newspapers it
appears that Iliodor, whose influence
over tho superstitious peasants as a
holy man exceeded Rasputin's, is either
joining in t! 10 Bolshevik campaign
against revival of church influence
is leading some new cult.
During the Russian Easter holidays
great church processions in Retrogrnd
and Moscow wore not molested, which is
taken to indicate that the church has
been growing stronger. According to
the Moscow Pravda, the Nicholas Pro
brashenic Church at Moscow recently
put ur? a huge ikon, on which was in
scribed :
"Brighter than tin sun is shining,
with crown Imperishable, the most pious
Emperor Nicholas Ah xandrovitch II.
the autocrat, who m ule the Russian land
happy with his pure love, courage and
humility."
A Moscow radlw message says that
navigation in the Finnish Fulf, which
has been swept of mines, will he opened
immediately, permitting ships to enter
Fetrogrnd and Kranstndt harbors.
Italian and British ships have arrived at
Batus with electrical and railway equip
ment.

gress and arrested seventy-two persons,
including three members of the Cham
ber of Deputies, after the minority mem
bers of the congress had protested

MEXICAN RADICALS
UNITE FOR CONTEST
Will Make Test of Strength
With Dominant Party
Headed by Obregon.
MORE TROUBLE EXPECTED
Attempt Will Be Made by Dep
uties to Onst Important
Officials.
By tht Associated Press.
Mexico Cirr, May 15.?The Morelia
tragedy, In which a score of persons lost
their lives in a conflict between Catho
lics, police and Radicals, and the inva
sion of the legislative halls In Mexico
city by protesting Radicals have set the
stage for a contest of strength In the
Chamber of Deputies between the Partl
dos Liberal Constitutionalists, the dom
inant political party, which claims Pres
ident Obregon as it leader, and the va
rious Radical groups, which for the mo
ment are united in a common cause.
Stormy sessions in the Chamber are
predicted for the coming week, and the
battle is schedule to start to-morrow,
when the I'artldos will seek a majority
vote for their resolutions adopted in
secret caucus last night calling for the
resignations of Celestino Igasca, Gov
ernor of the Federal District; Luis Mo
rones, Government purchasing agent,
and Col. Kaygadas, inspector-general of
police.
The Partidos also have decided to re
quest the Grand Jury to order an in
vestigation of Felipe Carrillo and An
tonio Diaz Soto y Gama, both Radical
[ Deputies, who are alleged to have been
the instigators of the invasion on Fri
day of the Chamber by a group carry
ing tMe red flag of Communism. For the
moment the Partidos, heretofore reck
oned as extremely liberal, are consid
ered Conservatives, and te their ranks
have cofc Catholics and numerous inde
pendents, comprising, according to the
Partidos, a majority of the Chamber.
Opposed to them are the several Rad
ical groups, which within the last woek
have openly defied the Government and
have caused the Partidos to rush to the
defence of President Obregon, who was
swept Into power last September as their
standard bearer.
The Tartidos, after caucusing last
night, asserted that they had the power
to oust Gasca, Morones and Raygadas.
Oaaca, as the Governor of the Federal
district, is an avowed radical and is al
leged by his opponents to have provided
official protection for numerous radical
demonstrations. Morones Is the leader
of the Labor Federation in Mexico, and
Haygadas is described ns "tho tool or
both." Tho Partidos have been long at
grips with Carrillo and Goma, both of
them Socialists who command largo per
sonal fallowings.
Tlio Morelia Incident of Thursday, In
which Isaac Arriaga, head of a commis
sion in tho State of Mlchoacan, was one
of the victims, has brought to a climax
the ill feeling which lias been apparent
in heated debates since the agrarian bill
was introduced in the chamber ten days
ago.
There were frequent "Vivas!" for Bol
shevism. and Emllio Zapata, the dead
bandit leader of Morclos, was lauded as
the real proletarian leader of Mexico.
Willie tile radicals were still in tho
chamber tho Pautido leaders consulted
with President Obregon, who, however,
in genoral statements to the press lias
not indicated that lie wishes to clash per
sonally with his adversaries. Ho dis
missed tlio chamber Incident as a mere
outgrowth of tho Morelia affair, declar
ing that tlio matter was being Investi
gated by Gen. Estrada, Secretary of
War, and that if Federal officials were
in any way responsible there wouiu be
punishment for all of them. The Presi
dent was inclined to believe that the
clash in the streets of Morelia was due
to the refusal of the Catholics to disperse
after being ordered to do so by the
pol ice.
Meanwhile advices from Morelia show
that the city Is still under virtual mar
tial la*-, but that the Interment of the
victims had proceeded without incident.
Resentment on the part of tho Catholics
is taking the form of ?n avowed Inten
tion to force the resignation of the Gov
