Trading in all commodities except dyestufts, chemicals and potash, con rol over which will be exercised by the reparations commission set up by the peace treaty, would be unrestricted, it was said. American frms doing busi ness with Germany must send their agents into that country without pass ports, however, as these cannot be issued until the proclamation of peace.

Ijirge amounts of food have been sent into that country un lr the direction of the interallied re lief commission, but it is believed that the demand for grain and other cereals will be great.

Predictions that the project to bring the former Ger man emperor to' trial in England will be abandoned, are growing in view of the almost unanimous opposition of the newsepapers of-all parties. Virtu ally all of the leading papers, with the exception of the Northcliffe press, are denouncing the plan. ' The Northcliffe papers have taken no stand in the matter but print many letters from prominent persons oppos ing, the trial. . The influential weekly reviews all oppose or deride the pro ject. Walter Runciman. lormer member of the cabinet, writes: "Feeling .in this country is justifi ably bitter against the kaiser. Indeed. It is so bitter that the public might take the law into their own hands and lynch him."' The Saturday Review says: "It is a mistake of taste, a want of tact. London is the last place in the world that ought to have been chosen, first because the English are the chief enemies of the Germans, according to j tne Germans; secondly, because Lon don is the court of William of Hohen zollern's first cousin," and the home of his illustrious grandmother: thirdly, because William has often been our guest. King George and the emperor must in their younger days have lived in some intimacy." The New statesman says: "Let' us "hope' that the, Dutch gov ernment will cut the- knot for us and save us from the blunder of reinstating the last of the Hohenzollerns in the hearts of his disillusioned country men.'t TUCSON, Ariz., July 11.

The British government, it was learned, has taken up the matter of seizure with the Mexican .govern ment and has advised the company pending action to continue to fulfill its obligations under Mexican law. The land on which the company operated, according to company offi cials, was leased in 1910, conforming in every way with the law of Mexico.

Republican A. P. Leased Wire DOUGLAS, Ariz., July 11. The rain fall in northern Sonora has been heav ier this month .than ever before in the memory of the oldest inhabitants of Ironteras, 29 mijes south of here. As a result roads have been washed so badly that traffic is almost impossible and fully one-third of the wheat crop trom the irrigated fields around Fron teras has been ruined, according to arrivals here. The loss is estimated at fully 2000 bushels. The wheat had been cut and piled in shocks prepara tory to threshing. El Tigre, a rich silver proper! v owned by Kansas City capitalists. 70 miles southeast of Douglas, has been isolated from the outer world for sev eral days due to the washing out of the stage road between the mme and Esqueda.'33 miles south of the border on the Nacozari railroad.

The resolution attacked the big packers, alleging control of food products. o 5 IN DEBATE PRO ID Scathing Words for Liquor and Also Enforcing Meas ures All Anxious to Talk Last of Prohibition Oratory Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, July 11. In the course of five hours debate in the house today on the prohibition bill, the liquor traffic was likened to a convicted criminal, appealing for a reprieve, while some of the more dras tic provisions of the measure were denounced as an invasion of the lib erty, hospitality and habits of the home. It probably "was the last great day of prohibition oratory in the house. Not all of the 12 hours set aside for general debate had been used at the close of an all-day discussion, which ranged from a technical argument on constitutional questions to a straight stump speech for prohibition and its enforcement. Chairman Volstead of the judiciary committee, in charge of the bill, and Representative Igoe, democrat, Mis souri, leader of the minority, were un able to allot all of the time desired by members anxious to be heard. All Congressmen Wanted to Talk There were more demands than there was time to give, with everybody wanting a word. Time and again there was the droning call, "the gentleman asks permission to extend and revise his remarks." The speech making will continue tomorrow, but the house will not begin actual work on the bill, sec tion by section, until Monday. Again today ardent prohibitionists declared they could not support the enforcement bill because of its pro visions, and others contended that once congress defines intoxicating liquors as a beverage containing one-half of 1 per cent alcohol the federal law for such enforcement cannot become ef fective without concurrent action by the several states. Against Enforcement Law The principal "dry" argument against the measure today was made by Rep resentative Moon, democrat of Ten nessee, who declared that unless it was materially amended he would feel in duty bound to vote against it or else express his disapproval by not voting at all. For 22 years, Mr. Moon said, he had stood up on the floor of the house and upheld the cause of prohibition, but the enforcement bill, which he charac terized as "impracticable and senseless as anything ever suggested," should be opposed "because it is worse in all its features than the infamous Force bill." Congress was going beyond its limifV, if it attempted to say man could not put liquor into his house and attempt ing to define intoxicating liquors by limiting the alcoholic content to one half of 1 per cent. It was apparent tonight that prohl bition leaders were somewhat discon certed by persistent attacks on the en forcement bill by members of the house, regarded heretofore as certain to support it. They still claimed, how ever, to have votes enough to put it through substantially as drafted, al though they said radical changes un doubtedly would be made by the sen ate. The drive by the "wets" appar ently had broken up all attempts, threatened several days ago, to make the bill more drastic than in its pres ent form. o T JAPAN TREAT! VARY Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, July 11. It was stated today that none of the material which has come into the government's hands in connection with recurring re ports of a secret treaty between Japan and Germany corresponds entirely with photostatic copies of the alleged treaty which have been circulated among senators. The photostatic cop ies reproduce a publication of several weeks ago in a publication at Shang hai. Senator Lodge already has a resolu tion pending calling for any material the government may have on the sub ject The report was repeatedly denied by the Japanese embassy here and the state department also has denied knowledge of the alleged treaty. Diplomatists pointed out today the published document described as a treaty bears no signatures and no dates, and might have been a memo randum prepared by some German of ficial with the hope of converting it Into a treaty. It was stated officially today that no evidence was at hand to connect any responsible official of the Japanese government with the doc ument. -1 START MARINE STRIKE BALTIMORE, July 11. Nearly 500 seamen, members of the marine fire men, oilers and water tenders' union today complied with the strike order of Adolph Gustaffsen, local agent of the union,; and quit as their vessels were about to sail. E WAXES WARM MEASURES SOE GERMAN SENATORS LINE UP Tl flltt Carry on Plans for Stiff Offensive Against Ratifi cation Both Sides Get Forces in Shape Presi dent Wilson Drops the Matter from His Mind WASHINGTON, July 11. Senate leaders in the league of nations con troversy continued their conferences today in preparation for the ratifica tion fight, which will begin when the senate reconvenes next Monday. While it was said the exact lines of division might not be drawn for some days, further progress in solidifying their forces was claimed by both sides. President Wilson, having delivered the treaty to the senate and offered to supplement it with all the information in his possession, apparently put the matter temporarily out of his mind. He saw none of the senators who have been active in the fight, and while he conferred with Acting Secretary Polk at the state department, it was under stood other subjects furnished the basis of their discussion. WThether the president's offer is to be accepted by the foreign relations committee remains an open question. Some of the opposition leaders are known to oppose inviting him before the committee, but his supporters be lieve they can secure his appearance should he request that they .do so. Wilson Arouses Talk There was continued discussion dur ing the day of Wilson's reported dec laration that a two-thirds vote would be necessary to make any reservations in ratifying the treaty. The opposi tion leaders have proceeded in the be lief that only a majority would be nec essary, and they declare their position is amply fortified by senate rules. In some quartrs it was suggsted that the president's declaration might mean a new turn in the reservation fight. It was asserted he may have meant that after a majority had written res ervations in the ratification resolution, two-thirds must then support the amended resolution to secure ratifica tion. It developed today that in his con versations with senators yesterday at the capitol, Mr. Wilson went into great detail regarding the Shantung agree ment. Ho was quoted as saying that the understanding that Shantung would be returned to China after a re construction period was of a very defi nite nature, and that the only gain to Japan would be of such benefit as she might derive from a temporary use of the German railroads and other Ger man property in the territory. EBERTrisiir OFGERIlEilfiE. PARIS, July 11. (By the Associated Press.) The German ratification doc ument consists of the textr of the peace treaty, the annexes and the convention Rhineland.

Near ly 200 members of the Texas National guard from Dallas and Nacodoches, or dered here today by Governor W. P. Hobby to prevent further clashes be tween whites and negroes, were arriv ing tonight by train and automobile. The situation remains quiet after . a clash early today in which four white men were woundad when a small party of white men were fired upon by ne groes, estimated to have numbered about 75. Reports that one negro was killed could not be confirmed and as far as is known none were wounded. Additional troops are held in readi ness at Terrell, Texas. Texas Rangers ar expected to relieve the soldiers to morrow. The trouble today occurred when 12 or 15 whites were waylaid and fired upon in the negro section of Longview, where they had gone in search of F. L. Jones, a negro school teacher ac cused of causing the publication of statements derogatory to a young w-oman of this county in a negro newspaper published in Chicago. The whites returned the fire of the negroes, who were hidden in vantage points, and withdrew when their ammunitpn was exhausted. A general alarm was sounded and the whites, with reinforcements, soon returned to the scene to find that; the negroes had disappeared.- Five of the principal negro residences were then burned by the whites. The governor was called upon when local officials were unable to cope with the situation. Search for two alleged negro ring leaders continued tonight. ASK FlfiLIONS IN DAMAGE SUITS BISBEK, July 11.

Several of the cases filed yesterday are old complaints that have had to be amended in order to be filed. The plaintiffs in the majority of the cases, it is expected, are either men who were deported or their families or other relatives.
