Senator La Follette is helps con demned by the newspapers all over the State, bjr the le'gfslature,,toow in ses sion here; by men who have been In strumental in his political success, and by the great mass of German Americans. Information gathered throughout the State clearly Indicates that the criticism is almost unanl mous. Resolution Seeres Senator. Two weeks ago the legislature adopted a resolution addressed to Pres ident Wilson declaring that the people of Wisconsin were loyal to him and woud support him in the j.resent in ternational situation. Testerday Senator J. H. Barrett, of Vlroque. formerly La Follette State leader.

In opposing the President, is misrepresenting the al most unanimous sentiment of his State. Wired by Friends. Immediately the' resolution was read friends of" the Senator ,htv personal telegrams to him urging hlra to cease his opposition and, give. blsrsupport to Mr. Wilson. They pointed pu.that his attitude was tending to .encourage the German government to believe that the American people were divided In 'their higher councils and in their support of their Chief Executive. The revelation of the German. In trigue crystallized sentiment against La Follette. Text of nrsolntlea. Ut part, the legislature's resolution ays: "Whereas Senator Robert Ml La Follette disregards the present criti cal need of proper action by. Congress and nullifies the expression of loyalty and support of the "President as re cently declared by this legislature; and. x "Whereas Senator La Follette, by preventing action of Congjess or by seeming to delay such action, does not reflect the loyalty and patriotism of Wisconsin: be It "Resolved, That it is the sentiment of this legislature that Senator Rob ert M. La Follette should be respect fully petitioned to act with the Presi dent in the immediate securing of such action by Congress as will initi ate and Insure naval and military preparation."

A plan to amalgamate the great peace societies of the United States under "an invisible head" is under way, it was learned here today. Arthur D. Call, secretary of the American Peace Society, and Mrs. Anna G. Spencer, of Chicago, presi dent of the National Congress of Wo men's Clubs, have been working for a week as a special committee. Three additional members from other peace societies probably will be named to act with them. The amalgamated societies would have a combined membership of 100, 000, and perhaps twice that many honorary members. The "Invisible head," it was stated, probably will consist of a committee. It was denied that this committee's chairman is already practically de cided Upon. "Each association would have a set work to perform," said C. F. HUnn of " the American Peace Society. "Unity of action would save time". Besides, there is power In numbers.. The international situation has Un doubtedly brought home more forcibly the need of concerted action. There may be a conference In New Tork soon." - MAGAZINE WRITER-' JAILED FOR THEFT PRESIDENT ATTESTS U. S. HAS PLOT-NOTE Senate Receives Reply to Reso lution Asking Information Within Two Hours.

HEAR INSTRUMENTS OFMCIENTMNCE Distinguished Audience Listens to Musicale Presented At Playhouse. Before a large and distinguished audience the Frencch-American Asso-i elation for Musical Art presented "Le Societe des Instruments Anclens" at the Playhouse yesterday. ' These players on the Instruments of yester day brought, through their music, visions of Watteau cavaliers and ladles who danced to stately meas ures In the gardens of France in Its romance days. Made up of a quartet of stringed Instruments, parallel to our string quartet of today, and of a clavecin, a "tinkling" forerunner of our piano the art of these players was compar able to that of our foremost quartets. The ensemble, the exquisite detail, and an Ingratiating quality of charm, made this music of their period the elegant and ornamental thing it was. designed to be. Included la Proirran, There was the "Qulnton," played by- Maurice Hewitt: the "Vlole d'Amour," by Henri Casedesus, founder of the societe; the "Viole de Gambe, by Eugene Dubruille, and the "Basse de Vlole," by Maurice Devilllers. Mme. Regina Patornl played the clavecin, and assisting them was Mme. Marie Bulsson, mezzo soprano "can la ttice." The sound was unfamiliar to our ears; it came trippingly, with tone of the strings of a mandolin. Festive in spirit. It was, too, "les plalslrs chanv petres' five dance movements by Montecialr (around 1700), and "Le Jardln des Amours," by Mouret, of the same period, with Its "Pavane" and Its lovely graceful minuet, present ing varied nuisle, quaint and delight ful, that was executed by quartet and clavecin with finished artistry. Mare Advanced Form. The later quartet by "Nlcoley was a more advanced form, the 'cello, or rather than vlole de Gambe, and the vlole d'Amour, with Its execution, being most significant. M. Casadesus, in solo suite for vlcle d'Amour.'pIayed with Mozartlan charm this Lorenzitl music, proving by his beauty of phrase and tone. In the andante, the romance quality that doubtless gave his instrument its name. Mme. Patornl, in solo and ensemble, was most artistic In delineation of theme and in various tone effects like that 0f tbe bag-pipe that' pervaded much' of the music. Mme. Bulsson, in a voice of warmth, sang or really re lated In song these' old French chan sonettes, with their delicate string accompaniment. -The '"L'Amour de moi" was beautiful pure singing, and the "Margot" song held the charm of humor and of vocal fineness. One made a delightful journey into other days by hearing these artists of the "Societe des Instruments Anclens." ' J. MacB.
