about $200,000,000 less, since the total
of tlij fourth loan was greater.
This looks rather discouraging for
the Victory-Liberty loan," said the
treasury's daily review, "and the most
hopeful sign connected with the situ

true in the Atlanta district."

WASHINGTON, April 28. Although
the peace conference today failed to
take up the question of responsibility
for the war, officials here were unani
mous today in the belief that the peace
treaty, as delivered to the German
plenipotentaries, will call for the trial
of William Hohenzollern, former em
peror of Germany, before a court ot
the. associated powers.
Trial of the former emperor for "a
nupre.me offense against international
morality and the sanctity of treaties,"
the state department announced today,
had been included in the recommenda
tions of the peace conference committee
on responsibility. These rerommenda
tions are embodied in four articles
which were made public by the state
department without comment ana
which the commission proposes to in
Pert in the final treaty.
The articles specify that the former
emperor is not to be tried "for an of
fense against criminal law, and that
the international court, shall be com
posed of five judges appointed by
Great Britain, United States, Japan
Italy and France. It is further pro
vided that the associated governments
shall request Holland to deliver up the
former emperor.
The commission's recommendations
also provide that all persons accused
of acts in violation of the international
rules cf warfare shall be brought be
fore international tribunals.
Some officials today said, this pro
vision would ?ring before the associ
ated governments other members of
the house of Hohenzollern, and other
leaders of extreme cruelty, as Gereral
von Bissing, military governor of Bel
glum, and Admiral von Tirpitz, who
conceived and advocated the subma
rine campaign.

"It would seem that any future op

kind of a league of nations. Senator

The Illinois senator said he objected

provisions, and said that a two-year
withdrawal notice was too long.
Senator Sherman declared that the
league covenant as revised still retains
the right of the league's super-sovereignty
over member nations.

tional bank case was returned in Sac
ramento last week.
According to the district attorney's
office, it is charged that Somozo, a
wealthy rancher and owner of large
tracts near here, secured large sums
of money from the bank through con
nections with Frank A. Brush, son of
the late president of the bank, and
who is under arrest.
Somozo came here about six years
ago. During the administration of
President Sierra in Honduras, 1900 to
1904, Somozo was a general in the
Honduras arrqy and married one of
Sierra's daughters.
Bench warrants were also served
upon Frank -A. Brush, William C.
Grant and H. K. Loughery, who were
officers of the bank and are under in
dictment in connection with the al
leged embezzlement cf $728,208 from
the bank.
Arraignment is set before United
States Judge Van Fleet at Sacramento
next Thursday.
Somozo, Grant and Loughery were
charged with peculations extending
over a period between May. 1916, and
September, 1918, when national bank
examiners took charge of the institu
tion. The indictments -were returned
against them at the same time that
Frank Brush, former cashier of the
bank, was charged in a separate in
dictment with embezzlement of
$204,000 of the bank's funds. The
Brush indictment was returned April

congress of laws necessary to safe- j

Postmaster General Burleson, as di- I

ure, announced -today he had recom

a statement saying he would recom

tion to be obtained from congress. It
was explained by Burleson that no leg
islation was necessary in the case of
the cable companies properties. In the
matter of land service, the solution
of the problem will be put squarely
up to congress. Coming so soon after
the recommendation in his annual re
port that the telephone and telegraph

conclusion of peace, the postmaster
general's announcement created un
usual interest.
Postoffice department officials ex
pressed the belief that few of the com

back without remedial legislation.
Some officials said that while the
properties must be returned in the
same physical condition in which they
were taken over, to do this now. with
out added revenue to meet wage de
mands and increased cost of operation,
would wreck the entire industry.
Officials repsonsible for the man

exactly what sort of legislation would

that the league of nations itself later

Incorporated in the peace treaty are
two momentous clauses. These call'
for the trial of the former German em

consisting of five judges, on a charge
of "a supreme offense against interna

fore the plenary session of the peace
conference today:
"Mr. President: When the text of
the covenant of the league cf nations
was last laid before you, I had the
honor of reading the covenant in ex

read the covenant as it has now been
altered, but will merely take the lib

alterations that have been made.
"The report of the commission has
been circulated. You yourselves have
in hand the text of the covenant, and
will no doubt have noticed that most
of the changes that have been made
are mere changes of phraseology, not j

the peace conference in plenary session,
without a dissenting vote. The presi
dent's motion also named Sir Jamrs
Eric Drummond, as secretary genera!
of the league, and provided for a com
mittee to inaugurate the league.
Thus one of the notable works of the
conference passes its final stage and is
incorporated in the peace treaty.
The French and Japanese amend
ments, after a brief discussion, were
not pressed, and the way was thus
cleared for unanimous acceptance of
the league. Italy was not represented
as the session, but the name of Italv
appears as one of the members of the
league in the covenant as finally adopt -ed.
Nine labor principles were adopted
for insertion in the treaties. The ses
sion adjourned without considering the
report on responsibilities, providing for
the trial of the former German emperor
by five judges from the great powers.

Baron Makino, head of the .Tap.mes"

renewed attention to the Japanese
amendment on racial equality. He said
that the race question was a standing
grievance, which might become a dan

adopted as part of the document.
Paul Hymans, repre-Tnting Belgium,
expressed the regret of the Belgian
people at the selection of Geneva

the high aims of the league.
The Uruguayan delegate announce,!
the adhesion of his country to th
league.
Leon Bourgeois, for France, renewed
two amendments tending to give France
additional security. One provided for
the creation of a committee to ascer
tain and exchange military and naval
programs, information regarding arma
ments and similar matters. The other
provided for "a. permanent organization
for the purpose of considering and pro
viding for naval and military measures
to enforce obligations arising for the
high contracting parties under th-
covenant, making it immediately oper
ative in all cases of emergency."
M. Bourgeois arsraed that such se
curity was essential to France, because,
of the extended frontiers of that coun
try, which as President Wilson had de
clared in the French senate, were the
