About "0 persons, seriously in jured, are in hospitals tonisht, while scores of others, including- women, were trampled by rioters and clubbed bv police, . Socialist headquarters were totally wrecked by angry civilians bent on putting an end to the demonstration. Socialists and sympathizers were rid den down by mounted policemen and . Jy soldiers in army tanks and trucks. ' The ono fatality occurred when a mob, said to have been composed of socialists or sympathizers, rushed De tective Woodring and other officers. Woodring declared he drew his revolver to save his own life, fired into the al leged leader of the mob, the bullet parsing through the man's neck killing him instantly. First reports said the dead man was an onlooker. Hixty of the rioters were arrested. A score were found to have weapons on them, police say. A mob of several hundred of the rioters threatened police headquarters when C. E. Ruthenburg. .socialist leader, and former socialist candidate for mayor, was arrested, and for more than an hour the entire down town section of the city was watching aiass of socialist, police, civilians and soldiers, the latter riding down the rioters in army trucks and tanks. Socialists Rush Soldiers The trouble in the public square smarted when Lieuterttnt H. S. Bergen, w'no served with the SOth division over yeas, demanded that several soldiers, among the socialists on the platform, remove tbt ir uniforms or the red Hags which they wore on their breasts. The soldiers refused and Ruthen burg, scheduled as the principal social ist speaker, interceded for the social ists. Lieutenant Bergen, followed by Lieu tenant John Hardy of Detroit, mounted the platform and tore the red insignia from the khaki uniforms. The act was the signal for a grand rush by thou sands of socialist sympathizers. Mounted police, who had rushed away to other riot calls, dashed back lo the public square and rode down the fiehiinsr mob, using their clubs right and left. Several shots' were fired bv socialist sympathizers. The mounted police and several soldiers, manning an army tank and two big trucks, charged pell mell dispersing the mob. Chicaqo Seethes With Riot CHICAGO, May 1. A score of ar rests were made in the May day dem (U&trations of radicals in Chicago to day. An all day rain and police activity had the effect of quenching any revo lutionary forces that may have been struggling for expression. The day's developments were as follows: Mounted policemen charged and dis persed a crowd of socialists who at tempted to march to a hall. They were allowed to hold a meeting. Two policemen were attacked by members of a crowd outside a hall where radicals were holding a meet ing, and a near riot resulted; sixteen men and one woman were arrested.

(By The Associated Press) Pale and al most fainting from emotion, Count von Brockdorff-Rantzau, the Ger man foreign secretary, and head of the delegation, passed through what evidently was one of the bit terest moments of his life. He was . barely able to sustain himself through the brief ceremony, and reach the waiting automobile, which had brought him to the fjathering. BLIlOSiflfJ AUTD QUELLS PARIS iAY DAYOUTBREAK French Veterans Refuse to Fire on People Police Use Less Tact Many Ivilled and Injured. . PARIS, Hay 1. (By the Associated Press). Serious disorders occurred to day in Paris, on the occasion of the celebration of May day. French blood flowed in the streets and weapons that so lately had been used against the foe were turned against countrymen. Particular efforts were made by the mobs to invade the Place de la Con corde and reach the chamber of depu ties and the ministry, where demon strations had been planned. It was in these attempts that the casualties oc curred. "Long live the poilu," the crowd shouted at the Madaleine and in the Place re la Concorde, as they surged toward the soldiers, and with pale, drawn faces the infantry withdrew and allowed the mob to reach the Place de la Concorde, against a wall of pitiless policemen and mounted cavalry. Then shots rang out. One policeman fell, slightly wounded. The cavalry charged and along the Rue Royale the mob wavered back toward the Madeleine church. Here and there a man or woman stggered, fell and remained motionless, horses trampling eight or ten outstretched forms littering the street from the Rue St. Honore to the Madeleine church. Ono policeman said to the Associated Press correspondent, as shots were heard a hundred yards distant, "They are firing at us and I have a gun (pro during a loaded weapon from his coat pocket) but I cannot fire upon my brothers." Others were less scrupulous, how ever, and the behavior of some of the policemen seemed like an invitation to rioting. One big policeman knocked down a mutilated war veteran in the sight of the correspondent, who re Droved him mildly. The policeman en raged, hissed, "You shut up. You will never again see America's shore un less you mind your own business." Populous Quarter Guarded Finding that the attempts to reach the chamber of deputies and the war ministry were futile, speakers begged the crowd to turn to the Place de la tie publique and de la Bastile. The crowd obeyed, singing the "juarseiuaise. At the Place de la Republique, the most noDulous Quarter in Paris, all ac cesses to the squares were strongly guarded, cavalry charging repeatedly and the firemen using their hose in spraying the crowds already wet from the rain, until ingenious youngsters turned off the water of the nearest hvdrant leaving the useless hose in the hands of the bewildered firemen. Here a blind soldier, wearing the war cross with two palms, entered a stalled automobile. The crowd was silenced and the soldier delivered a speech. "We are the weakest," he said. "It us not shed Frenh blood. I cannot see you, but I feel that you are honest working men and women. Let us dis perse. "Don't mind the police. The soldiers won't hurt you. I'm one of them and for fifteen months I have been fighting for you. I have lost my sight, but I am not sorry, for it has served my mnnirv and vourselves. But. I would regret eternally U French blood nowea tnftuv" The crowd followed the blind I soldier : who was carried on the shoulders of the enthusiastic crowd, Police Charge Crowd PAPvIS, May 1. (6:40 P- m.) Some 30 persons were injured early this eve ning, between the Place de la Repub lique and.the Place de la Bastille, when the police with drawn sabres charged a crowd which had torn down the newspaper kiosks. The troops in this district, the fifteenth chasseurs, re mained passive during the melee. The injured were members of both the op posing parties. 80 Police Wounded PAPJS, Mav l.-(Havas) During the course of the day, 80 policemen were wounded in the riots and 50 ar rests were made. Among those slightly injured, were Leon Jouhaux, general secretary of the federation of labor, and Deputv 1'oncet. A vountr man was killed in the opera district. Fifteen persons were wounded, several of them seriously, in the neigh borhood of the Gare de L'Est, when crowds stoned the cavalry and may shots were fired. There were numerous clashes in the Boulevard de Magenta, where barriers were erected and the troops were fired upon. o ONE YEAR AGO TODAY ""A new German drive is heralded by terrifio artillery bombardment along the entire western f roi t.

Three gi-.. ant hydroairplanes of the Ameri can navy will start on a date, yet to be announced, probably early next week, on a 3.125-mile flight in three stages to the British isles. The actual trans-Atlantic venture, details of which were announced loday by Commander John H. Towers, in charge of ' the expedi tion, is a contemplated cruise in two stages, aggregating 2,150 miles from Trepassey Bay, New Found land, to Lisbon, Portugal, while the projected American and European coastal "legs'' extend from Rocka- . way Point, Long Island, home sta tion of the planes, to Trepassey, B REGIE ninnis mm HELSINGFORS, Wednesday, (April 30. Petrograd is being evacuated by the bolsheviki, reports from reliable sources say. Many of the inhabitants are being sent away and the bolsheviki government is taking rigorous meas ures to prevent the news of the hap penings at Olonetz from reaching the people. WASHINGTON, May 1. Evacuation of Petrograd by the bolsheviki, re ported today in dispatches from Hel singfors, in the opinion of observers here, may prove to be the initial break in the structure erected by the radical leaders, which if recent developments continue their normal course, - would lead to the complete disintegration of the bolsheviki government in Russia. This belief was strengthened by other dispatches telling -of the indi cated collapse of the Hungarian soviet who, it was said, have sued for peace with Rumania. Allied successes in the Archangel and Murmansk sectors, although minor in comparison with the great extent of territory involved, are expected by of ficials here to have material influ ence, especially when taken in con junction with the forward rapvement of Czechs, Esthonians and loyal Rus sian forces on widely seperated sectors. Map Shows Tactics Analvsis of the military map of Russia, maintained here for the infor mation of the general staff, shows that a eradual encircling of the center of bolshevism has been under headway ; for months. The effect has been to , throw a wall of anti-bolsheviki forces tround central Russia, narrowing the- territory held by the soviet to a com paratively small proportion of the area they had occupied. Troops of the anti-bolshevikist leader, Kolchak, ac cording to latest reports, have been striking west in the general direction Of Moscow, and now hold a genera! line through Glatzov, Parapul and Kinel, 40 miles from Samara, to Oren burg on the Ural river, while due north of Moscow, the allied Archangel front runs south to Vologda and then west to the Gulf of Onega, wnere it con nects substantially with the Murmansk coast sector. Almost Surrounded The "ring" here is taken up in ef fect bv the Finnish revolutionaries who hold'the line down to the Gulf of Finland. The Czecho-Slovak armies are actively engaged on a front which stretches from the Gulf of Margrav to Pskov, thence to the Gulf of Narva. Attention of the bolsheviki leaders is held to the east by the energetic Polish forces and, strangely enough, by German representation forces, and to the south by the Rumanian and French. The situation of the Hungarian soviet is even more critical from a strictly military standpoint. The Czechs are pushing eastward toward Budapest and have already established themselves on a line from, Vacz to Eperjes to Karpfen, while the Ruman ian forces are headed west toward the same general objective. o UP GO 'PHONE RATES DENVER, Colo., May L Increases of 25 cents to 50 cents a month for res idence telephones, and a general in crease in other service, except for un limited business telephones, were an nounced by the Mountain States Tele phone and Telegraph company today. The city will make no effort to contest the increase. Mayor Mills said, pending decision as to the authority of the gov ernment to fix intrastate rates. The new rates, it was said, will af fect every city of the state of any im- ! portance. Villages and hamlets will j not be affected. Increased operating i expenses were given as the reason for j the increase by F. H. Reid, assistant ' general manager of. the company. DLSHEVIK I BELIEF and trom Lisbon to Plymouth, England. Flying at an estimated average speed of 75-miles an hour (65 nau tical miles), the squadron, driven by Liberty motors, expected to cruise from Rockaway to Halifax without a stop, Commander Tow ers said. The plan then is to pro ceed to Trepassey, on the South eastern tip cf New Foundland. where the planes would be given a week's "tuning up" before under taking the trans-Atlantic flight. The second and longest jump, the commander stated, would be from Trepassey to Porta, on the Island of Fayal, in the Azores, 1200 miles, or, if the conditions are fav- EUROPE At a Glance By the Associated Press The peace conference at Versailles has formally begun its sessions. The eventful day which the world had ! awaited since the signing of the armis- j tlce on Noverabcr 11, last year, has at j last arrived. . .......... , The German peace delegates have met the representatives of the allied and associated powers, and across the green baize table have carried out the first preliminary which probably will mean a return of actual peace in the rnot far distant futute. This preliminary was the handling to the representatives of the allied and associated power by the Germans, of their credentials, certifying their right to act for Germany in accepting the peace treaty, which later is to be given them, outlining the terms which the peace conference in Paris has' decreed Germany shall meet in order to secure that peace and a return of normal con ditions -which- Germany has -professed she desires so ardently. Similar credentials 'of the. allied and associated representatives then were handed to the Germans. ' Scarcely five minutes were taken un with the procedure. The formality of aaoresses was entirely dispensed with. When the brief ceremony ended,, the Germans immediately left the-Trinon hotel for their place of residence. President Wilson did not attend the function. Neither did M. Clemeceau, French premier, nor David Lloyd George, British prime minister, who were represented espeetively by Jules Cambon -and Lord Harding. Henry Whitf represented the United States and Ambassador Matslii, Japan.- The Italians were unrepresented. No official information has vet been vouchsafed as to the exact date for tendering the peace treaty to the Ger j day have been unofficially mentioned mans. Friday. Saturday and even Mon as the probable momentuos day. The Japanese question having been settled, and neither side to the con troversy over Italy's claims to Fiume and the Dalmatian coast having evinced any intension of seeking to continue discussion of them, Thursday, in peace conference circles, was rela tively quiet. Numerous small details of the peace treaty, including the dis position of the German cable lines, were discussed by the council of three in the morning, while in the afternoon there was a meeting at the French foreign minist.-y of the council, the for eign ministers and members of the war council. Both houses of the Chinese parlia ment have protested against the award of Kiao Chau to the Japanese, and re quested the unccrditionl return of th?s strategic seaport to China, and likewise the abrogation cf concessions on the Shantung peninsula. China's delegates to the peace conference have asked for official statement of the Kiao Chau de cision by the council of three. An appeal has been made 1 by the Hungarian government for a cessation of hostilities by the Rumanians, who recently have been making their way rapidly toward Budapest. A similar proposal has been made to the Jugo slavs, with an offer of territorial con cessions for acquiescence.

LODGE MESSAGE Republican A. P. Leased Wire - WASHINGTON, May 1. Several re-' publican senators of the group known as progressives let it be known today that they opposed having th league of nations covenant considered at a re publican conference, with a view to determining the attitudte of the party toward the document. Senators Johnson of California; Jones of Washington; McNary of Oregon, and Borah of Idaho, made statements declaring the league could not be made a party question. They were commenting on the action of Senator Lodge, leader, and Senator Curtis, whip, in telegraphing republi can members of the senate to with hold expressions concerning the league until a party conference could be held. Senator 'Norris of 'Nebraska said he did .not oppose.. the conference but WQuid refuse to be bound by any action it might take., . ; Not Partisan Issue Senator - Sherman of Illinois, in a statement late today, opposed any ef forts that might be made to njake the league of nations a partisn issue. Senator McCormick of Illinois repuh lican, also issued a statement in which he said that the amended covenant in its present form was "rather a guaran tee of . empire than a league to en force peace." "It is . a triumph for Mr. Lloyd George,": he said. "The "phrase maker of the king', is a better negotiator than the 'king of phrase makers.' Under article 10, we would still have to de fend British rule in India, French rule in Africa: Portuguese in Southern China," Japanese rule in Korea and people seeking emancipation from for eign rule-and . tutelage."- Later Senator Curtis made this statement : , - "There has been no conference of republicans on binding' the party one way or the other on the league of na tions. There is a general feeling among republicans here that senators should refrain from passing an opinion upon the covenant until they know just what it contains, and they won't know until it has been presented to the senate for action. , . "The Lodge telegram was sent after consideration with a number of sena tors here in Washington, because it was believed to be a better plan for the senators not to express themselves on the proposition, as it had not been studied and the amendments suggested not verified." o HUNGARY OVERTHROWN BERLIN, May 1.
