MEADS TO FALL IF WOOD LOSES ILLINOIS
SPLIT IN SINN FEINERS Militant Section Break ing Up, According to Information Which Comes to English. ) Cable Tribu« to Great Fall« Dillr and Chirac» Trlbuae. Copyright. Cork, April 6.—A serious »lit is de veloping among the Sinn Feiners of the Cork district, where the movement has been strongest, over the activities of the extreme section. The moderate men disapprove the murders of policemen and the policy of destruction of pro perty which happens to be occupied by the government. This is causing a serious feeling among the moderates, who fear It will alienate the tax payers and voters, whose pockets will be touched by the special compensation levy which the British government can enforce with a minimum of trouble. The military authorities of the Cork area, whose commander is Major Gen. Sir H. H. Strickland, commander of the British first division in the war, are receiving concise evidence of the break ing up of the militant section in the form of the stream of information which has enabled them to make important arrests Ênd to stop the murders, none of which as occurred in Cork for a fortnight, although before of daily occurrence. The Tribune has received an outlme of the organization of the Irish revolu tionary forces. The first branch is of the political or ganiaztion which often is not informed of the activities of the other two. It outlines the political policy and fives the general line of action to its followers who conduct the agitation at home and abroad. „ The second is the Irish Republican armv, which is regularly orgRBiaed and officered in regiments, battalions, and companies, and carries out what is called guerilla warfare, such as attackcs on isolated police barracks, burning of gov ernment offices, holding up the maus, and various other more or less justifiable activities, assuming a state of war exists. The intelligence work of this section is excellent and there is a constant struggle between it and the British armv intel ligence. It is well armed with rifles and revolvers, but the artillery consists of observation mines consisting of a hole In the ground filled with powder, old iron, etc. The British authorities held up two ships in Scotland recently, and seized half a dozen light field guns from Ger many destined for Ireland. The British are not inclined to suspect the German government, but think private traders are responsible. Rifle and revolver am munition chiefly is home-made and to day several samples of typical dum-dums with ends flattened were shown. The powder is home made and black, and the shells, which seem mostly of Ameri can origin, are used over and over again. Sporting shells filled with black powder and slugs also are used. The third section is the Irish Repub lican brotherhood, which is said to be under the direction of Irish-Americans and is said to conduct the murder cam paign, probably without the knowledge of the political leaders. At least a dozen Irish returned from America have been captured in the Cork district in the last «ix months. All these are well financed. The Sinn Fein also has set up its own courts in this district and com pels the residents to disregard the Brit ish opurts. In one case a farmer who refused to take his case to the Sinn Fein courts had his ears cut off. Many of these courts are perfectly fair; oth eds are in the hands of a group which runs them for their own advantage. Several samples of terrorism by proc lamation, which it is alleged are the work of this section, are visible here, In Brosna, county Kerry, a few weeks ago the following notice regarding Pol iceman Erwin's family was nailed to a *.elegraph pole. "IMPORTANT NOTICE "Just to let you know about English Erwin's dogs. Do not speak to them at your peril. SINN FEIN." The wife of Sergeant Driscoll Thurles received this postcard: "Say good bye to your spy, for Lord have mercy on the traitor. R. I. P. Driscoll." Llam de Roiste, Sinn Fein, M. P., for Cork city, discussing the outbreak of arson, declared probably it was the work of some section of the Irish volunteers and justified it as an act of war which was carried out by the military wing of the movement. "We have our militarists just as Ger many or Great Britian has. Their pol icy may be good or bad, and I'm not sure I approve it as a policy, but it is an act of war. Regarding the shooting of policemen, I look at every case on its merits. Some are private venge ance. some misadventure, some perhaps political. Remember the Irish police more than ever are not guardians of the law. but military oppressors of the country which is now in an awful state, where no man's life is safe. "It is absolutely certain the murder of the Lord Mayor was an act of some section of the police, like the attempt to murder Professor Stoekley. We are willing to go on indefinitely and will not compromise because we know we arc right and confident that right will tri umph. This is not merely an economic fight, although .England is still crush ing our industries. It is a fight for an Ideal freedom in which we expect the support of every freedom-loving nation in the world.

Washington, April 11.—Captain Roald Amundsen, discoverer of the south pole and new leader of a north polar expedi tion has not left his ship, the "Maude for a final dash to the pole. The denial of the recent report from London that the Amundsen dash had actually begun was received in Washington today by Gilbert Grosvenor, president of the National Geographical society, in a cablegram from the Norwegian Geog raphical society. According to the earlier report from Christiania published in London on March 26, the explorer began the dash across the polar ice field accompanied by only two men. Had this report prov ed true, Amundsen's dash if successful might have brought him to his goal on the same day of the year on which the pole waa discovered by Peary, April C, 1900. Contrary to Plaas.

Special Dispatch to Great Falls Dally Tribune and Chicago Tribune. Washington, April 11.—The results of the Michigan primary, widely heralded for weeks as a "crucial test" of the rela tive popularity of the candidates for president upset all calculations in both parties. The Johnson victory in Michi gan has put the California senator "on the map" as a formidable contender for the Republican nomination. Johnson stock has taken a shoot up ward.

The damage to Wood ia expected to ahow np noticeably in New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana, with Lowden, Johnson and Harding the bene fidaries. Some of the Wood managers, however, profess to believe that the general will be strengthened in Illinois by the popu lar preference over Lowden he won in Michigan, Minnesota and South Dakota, Lowden has neither gained nor lost He will be a potential figurp in the con vention and, with Wood and Johnson at grips in the progressive camp the Illi nois governor might easily capture the nomination.

Nansen was frozen into the ice Sept. 22. 1893, and not until March 14, 1S9Ö. did he reach a point where he decidcd to leave his ship—400 miles from the goal. But this distance was too great for a successful dash to the pole. Profiting by Nansen's experience, Amundsen did not intend to leave his ship so far from his goal. Three Year» Drift. It was generally estimated that the drift across the polar seas would take three years, therefore, barring unfore seen circumstances, it is not probaole that the leader of the present expedi tion will leave his ship for a dash to the pole until 1921. The coming sum mer months probably will be spent in drifting and if the currents and ke be have as thev did with Nansen's ship, the "Fram" the'"Maude" by next spring will be brought to a point from which Amundsen can strike for the pole with every hope of success. . Scientists are eagerly awaiting new^ concerning the use Amundsen will be able to make of the two airplanes which he carried with him into the arctic.

Chicago. April U.-*-It was just at the most thrilling sreme in the Northwest <nr 'university junior play "Within the Law." The heroine. Miss Thelma Fitz williams and the hero Ben Kennedy were about to be draged to prison from whence they were to make a daring escape. A stern, forbidding official of the law, black moustache, glittering eyes and corrugated brow advanced up on them, bearing an archaic pair of handcuffs, which he clasped upon their wrists. The village clock clanged out the hour of 8. Spectators were holding their breath with excitement. The fettered heroine was smiling, for ahe knew the villain was to be de nounced and she would be set free so that bier heart's desire, in the person of the hero, might not be hampered in bis star act of clasping her in his arms. Then, of course, something had to happen. The villain was denounced all right, but the stern official of the law, turning his pockets inside out, announc ed that he could not find the key to the handcuffs. The prisoners were finally hustled off stage and frantic calls were sent to the police station, from which the cuffs bad been borrowed. The gentlemen there were desolate to report that the only key they had, was the one sent along with the cuffs, that the cuffs were of an ancient pattern and it would be very hard' to find another key—better consult a blacksmith. The search continued all through the day and evening. The hero and heroine ate together with their free hands, but this thing of being shackled for life was aetting monotonous.

Housecleaning Threatens Among Managers if the Tuesday Poll Is Lost. Chicago Tribune Special Dispatch to Great Falls Dally Tribune. Chicago, April 11.—Unless Major General Leonard Wood carries Illinois next Tuesday over Governor Lowden it is the one best bet along Presidential Row at the congress that there will be a spring house-cleaning at the Wood head quarters. The Michigan result nearly put a gilt edge cinch on the proposition. That the vote in Michigan was a disaster to the Wood plan of campaign was admitted by men who are on the inside of the fur ther prosecution of the plans to capture the presidential nomination for General Wood. That there is to be a radical change in policy is all but publicly ad mitted. M loht Change Things A Wood victory in Governor Lowdcn's home state of the preferential primary might change the situation somewhat but not materially, because of the con spicuous political fact that all of the presidential politicians recognise that there are no Wood delegates running in Illinois. However, it is known that a clean-up for Wood in Illinois would make some change in the pending ar rangements. While the Wood headquarters are not conceading disappointment over the fail ure of the General to carry Michigan, there were no flags hanging out at the Lowden headquarters. Felt Sure of Michigan The Wood people, it is known, had reason to believe that their candidate would not get less than 25,000 to the good. The Lowden management was extremely hopeful that the governor would get through with a substantial plurality. Neither camp was at all pre pared for the staggering figures of the Johnson clean-np. Illinois becomes the decisive -ttate, both for Lowden and Wood, according to the heart to heart suggestion in both headquarters. Should Wood defeat Lowden it is a foregone conclusion that the governor is substantially eliminated from the presidential race. Illinois Is "Last Chance" Wood, in view of the six day cam paign that he is making under the avs pices of the management that sueeed ed John T. King, has to make a most substantial showing, the cuperts sny, in view of the defeat that he took m Mishigan. In other words, the Illinois campaign is a "last chance" for the pres ent Wood management and >his semi secret at present is likely tq become an official statement: WEATHER Observations taken at 6 p. m., April II, for the preceding 24 hours.

MAN OS PLATE RS •14 FRANKFORT IS CUT OFF FROM REST OF GERMANY City and District Sur rounding It Are to All Intents French; Poilus Are Now Making Themselves at Home. By FLOYD GIBBONS. Cable to Great Falls Dally Tribune and Chicago Tribune. Copyright. Frankfort, April 11.—The city of Frankfort and tne aurroundning district it cut off from the rest of Germany and to all appearances is a part of France. The through train service with the bal ance of Germany has been discontinued, and the telephone and telegraph wires run uninterrupted only toward France. The over-president and the over burgomaster of Frankfort quit the city with the reichswehr garrison several hours before the arrival of the French. he French troops swarmed over the city, at first armed for action, and openly alert. The business of the city stopped for a time, but the normal ma chinery of life has resumed its movement a3 if nothing had happened. Not only does the respectful attitude of the civilians toward the incoming troops continue, but they now watch the poilus curiously. The poilus with incomparable sang froid no longer are grim, but in the interim of jguard mounts they clean their dusty equipment, eat, or stretch out asleep on their packs in the street. The French troops no longer swarm the city. The bulk of them have been withdrawn. There is perfect order. The French aviation service reports that while its birdmen were reconnoiter ing beyond Frankfort a German armor ed car fired on French cavalry patrols with shrapnel. The patrols were then pishing on toward Hanau and incurred no casualties. At the time of the firing the motor car was a quarter of a mile 1 sonth of Bakersheim and the cavalry was just southeast of Frankfort. The French infantry in its advance took a number of German prisoners. On entering Darmstadt it surrounded a bat talion of German constabulary sleeping in baracks. The French sent forward of ficers, who demanded that the con stabulary lay down its arms. It com plied. In Frankfort the French seized sever al trooj» trains in the station yards, the German reichswehr within being una ware of the French occupation.

Washington, April 11.—Secretary of Commerce Alexander in a formal state ment issued has accused former Secre tary of State Lansing of refusing to co operate with him in promoting American trade with other countries. Secretary Alexander cited a specific instance. He said that he had asked Mr. Lansing to join him in a conference with repre sentatives of the National Foreign Trade council, the American Manufacturers Export association and the Civil Service Reform league to work out a plan of co at Thüringen for movement to Darm stadt was stopped at Frankfort, order ed to detrain, and was interned. The German authorities unanimously urged the population not to demonstrate against the invaders. A prominent citizen of Frankfort said: "There is a strong feeling of resent ment against the occupation as a viola tion of the treaty and of the several rights of nationality. I hope there will be no foolish outburst, which would only mean a useless loss of life and no gain for Germany's cause. The _ suppression of the newspapers is causing a nerv , ousness among the population which is I unable to understand the events.'" i "This is the first thing," said another. I "definitely of value to Germany's cause, beeause it shows for the first time a really split policy toward Germany. It marks the beginning of better days for Germany." The French introduced a new depart ment for an army on their entry into the city. This is the bill poster's regi ment. This regiment entered Frankfort with the advance guard of the troops cf occupation and under the protection of tanks began immediately to stick notices on every available wall in the city an nouncing a state of siege, with all tee flourish of a minstrel show coming to town. operation to further the business in terests of the United States abroad. Mr. Lansing refused to participate. The statement was prompted by the recent publication of the letter sent sev eral monthe ago by Mr. Lansing to mem bers of the foreign relations committee of the senate and the committee on foreign affairs of the house urging a reorganiaztion of the diplomatic and consular service which would absorb the work now done by the department of commerce through commercial attaches and trade commissioners in foreign countries. The statement carries more than ordinary significance by reason of the fact that it is understood to have re ceived the approval of the White House before being made public. Such anproval would appear to have gained at least a temporary victory for the department of commerce in its controversy with the state department. If the White House stands back of Secretary Alexander in his position that trade promotion in foreign countries is properly the work of the department of commerce, it is to be expected that Secretary of State Colby will not follow the lead of his predecessor in seeking to take over these functions.
