which had been summonsed to appear

there apparently has been no change in
the sentiment of German government
circles that the treaty should not be
signed. ,
"Should I, under pressure from our
own misled countrymen, sign this
sentence of death"? An utterance at
tributed to Count von Brockdorff
Rantzau, in reply to a question as to
whether the demands of the indepen
dent socialists, that the compact should
be duly sealed, sums up generally the
state of mind supposed to exist in the
higher walks of German political life.
Meanwhile, allied commissions are
preparing to hand to Austria and Bul
garia the treaties that are to be drawn
up for them. The Austrians who have
been for some time at St, Germain, are
chafing under the delay in being called
before the peace congress. The delay
is declared to be mainly due to the
settlement of conditions regarding rep
arations. Dr. Renner, head of the Austrian del
egation, has appealed to Premier Clem
enceau, urging the hastening of the
presentation of the peace treaty, de
claring that the delay is creating a
"regrettable strain" on Austria fi
nancially. The belief is expressed in Paris that
the allied and associated powers will
exempt the new states, formed from
parts of the former dual monarchy,
from any payments on account of rep
aration or public property taken over
by them. The council of four is now
engaged in thoroughly going into the
situation of these new states.
Anti-bolsheviki factions in Russia,

Such action by the council would en
able the allies to assist in the struggle

munitions and food on a larger scale
than previously. No troops would be
furnished according to the report.

The 11U9 year book of the National
Rhode Island White club has just been
completed by The Republican job of
fice. Possibly this is the first instance
when a national publication 'has been
printed in Phoenix.
The Rhode Island White club is one
of the liveliest of the many specialty
poultry organizations, and there are
members in nearly every state in the
Union and in Australia and Canada-
M. E. Bemis of this city is the
national secretary of the organization
and the state representative for Ari
zona is Frank Dykes, also of this city.
The new year hook is printed on
heavy enameled paper and is indeed a
work of art. It gives a list of the
membership, constitution and by-laws
of the club and the standard of the
breed, together with much that is of
interest, not only to breeders of Rhode
Island Whites, but to all poultry
fanciers. The Rhode Island Whites
have made splendid records in the egg
laying contests and the breed is rap
ily becoming one of the most popular.

fused to agree to the plan submitted
by the labor leaders as a basis of strike
settlement, today received the formal
support of the government.
Minister Robertson issued this state
ment: "Conditions for the right of collect
ive bargaining which are stated to be
the cause of the Winnipeg strike seem
to be generally misunderstood. The
employers, parties to the original dis
pute, the president of the Canadian
Manufacturers' association and the cit
izens' committee, as constitute since
the strike occurred, all agree to the
principle of collective bargaining as it
is interpreted, namely. the right of
any individual to - belong to a labor
union, if he so desires, and the right of
employes to bargain with their em
ployers concerning matters affecting
any individual plant or industry.
"The central strike committee, how
ever, interpret the right of collective
bargaining to mean that the central
btdy shall have the power to approve
or reject any agreement that may be
satisfactory to the employer or classes
of employers and their employes which.
if granted, would have the result of
enabling any central committee, en
tirely outside the industry or craft
affected, to dictate the acceptance or
rejection of any agreement. It, there
fore, instead of giving to the workmen
in any individual plant or industry' the
right of collective bargaining with
their employers, deprives them of the
right and places them entirely in the
hands of .a central body, which prin
ciple the citizens' committee of Winni
peg, provincial and federal govern
ments agree cannot be accepted."
To Start Cars Running
Distribution of vast quantities of
mail stored in the Winnipeg postoffice
began in earnest today, under the di
rection of federal officials. The post
office, guarded by soldiers, was the
magnet for hostile, curious and inter
ested pedestrians. Men with union
buttons on their coats made caustic
remarks, but- no disturbance of a seri
ous nature took place.
There has been a feeling that so far
as local issues of the Winnipeg strike
are concerned, the test of strength and
control might not take place until the
street cars were put into 6ervice.
Mayor Gray today said he hoped to
have cars running tomorrow and that
he "was going to keep them running."

CALGARY, Alta., May 26. Only 1500
workers were said to have answered
the general strike call here today, the
men representing the postal workers.
Dominion express employes, flour and

Pacific men at the Ogden shops and

Soil recovery from the effects of
modern warfare may be more rapid
than has been feared. On the gently
sloping and undulating battlefields of
the Somme, thousands of acres were
devastated in the summer and autumn
of 1916, but Captain A. W. Hill of Kew
Gardens, finds evidence that a f,frtil
izing rather than a stirilizingr influ
ence may result. In the overturn by
shell explosions there was an extraor- '
dinary mixing up of soil with, subsoil "
and underlying chalk rock. Except
some wooded areas on the highest lev- .
els, the region had been cultivated be
fore the war, but practically every liv
ing thing was destroyed. Yet a mass
of vegetation found to consist chiefly
of annual cornfield weeds, spread .all
around during last season. In Jul,?,
poppies predominated in a sheet of
scarlet extending as far as the eye
could reach, but this was intermixed
with long stretches of chamomile and
large patches of yellow chalock, small
patches of chalock being conspicuous
over recent graves. Shell l-oles, half
filled with water, contained wate
grasses and other aquatic plants, -with
a ring of the annual rush at the wa
ter surface. The trees were shattered
and dead, except a few surviving brpkr
en ones in, the Avelun woods, and
where woods had been several acres
were covered with a dense growth of
firewood. (Espilobium AngustUolium) .
The seeds of these plants ,it ia believ
ed, must have been lying dormant in
the soil, as such quantities could not
have been carried by winds or birds.
