Nothing was emphasized more plainly than Ameri can consent to German territorial an nexation In the East in order to per suade Germany to renounce all claims for Indemnity In the shape of money or territory In the west. This Idea was invariably the kernel of Mr. Ger ard's expositions, which betrayed ut ter Indifference to the fata of Eng land's Russian ally. "Russia was to be sacrificed by England If only for the purpose of keeping alive the animosity between Germsny and Russia, the benefits of which were bound to prove a valuable political legacy In the future." NEW YORK. June 7. With respect to Georg Bernhardt previous utter ances In the Vosslsche Zeltung. al leging a similar attitude on the part of the former American ambassador. who was quoted as saying that the United States would raise no objec tion to Germsn annexation In the East, Mr. Gerard denied categorically that he had made any such state ments. The allegations of Bernhard were characterized by Mr. Gerard as absolutely false. Mr. Gerard denied over the tele phone last night there was any truth In the Bernhard statement. Ha said he did not know Bernhard, and that the editor must have been suffering from delusions or else trying to "cook up" something. DM HYMN MAKES GREAT HIT AT REVIEW GERARD IS TERMED AGENT OF BRITISH Other Allies Planned to Drop Rus sia, Editor Says. BERLIN, via London, June 7. Georg Bernhard makes the follow ing assertions tn the Vosslsche Zel tung In reply to the denial of James W Gerard, former American ambas sador to Germany, forwarded to the legation at The Hague, of a statement he la alleged to have made to the Berlin editor with respect to Presi dent Wilson's attitude on the restora tion of Belgium and probable German annexations in the east: "I can very well conceive that my statement Is embarrassing to Mr. Ger ard, but he cannot dispose of It with a mere denial. He not only once, but repeatedly, delivered himself of ex pressions which absolutely tally with lh statements contained in my edi torial of May 21 under the caption Allies.' "My conversations with Mr. Gerard were Invariably very comprehensive and frequently extended over several hours. I discussed In detail with him, aa well as with Mr. Penfleld, the American ambassador at Vienna, dur ing my visit to that city, the possi bilities, of a Wilson pesce mediation Both gentlemen were aware that I was averse to such mediation, and Mr Gerard naturally endeavored to convince me that Intervention on the part of President Wilson was bound to be favorable to us "In the course of the conversations I became more and more convln ol that AmerlcVn and English interesta ere closely interlocked, and that In New Music Stirs Hearers as Ma rine Band Plays. When the thinning gray line swept by President Wilson's reviewing stand today the feet of the gray-clad war riors of a departed age beat rythmettc time to a march written by one of their number for this special occasion. "The Dixie Hymn," the words and music by J. Allelne Brown, thus mad Its debut In the National Capi tal. A salvo of cheers went up from the spectators who watched the line sweep past the reviewing stand, and President Wilson removed his nat In tribute to the veterans as tbey march ed by to the strains of the new Dixie song. Mr. Brown Is a Confederate veteran. Before setlng the words of his new song to music he recited the lyric to members of Camp 171. the local branch of Confederate Veterans. The members Insisted on the words being set to music "The Dixie Hymn" Is dedicated to the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Any proceeds from the sale of the hymn will be devoted to the Red Cross war service fund. Mr. Brown said to day. The Marine Band played the sprlght It Jtjr ii th v.t.r.na mm.

Mr Brown will ar- ranre to have the sons Disced on sale si local music shops, where It will be a treasured addition to the list of military marches that have sorune into existence since the war.

Special passes and signed cards of admission of all colors and shapes will go completely out of style at the Tabernacle If Billy Sunday has his way. The one real entree will be a Liberty loan button, and without this little' prize insignia pinned on your breast even standing room will be denied. "If you haven't taken a Liberty loan bond you don't need-to come back here." Billy shouted to his big audience last night. And while the crowd cheered and a few hundreds be gan to laugh, Billy scowled and glared to prove he meant exactly what he said. "I'm going to turn this old tabsr nacle Into the greatest Liberty loan center In America," he went on. "I think I'll have a subscription 1 booth set up right here on the platform, and then If you don't do your Py JH ask for a squad of soldiers, and we 11 close the doors, and then you cu either buy or spend the night here.

And while Billy was at It he stop ped long enough to send his compli ments to the Emperor of Germany, who Is fast usurping the place of tha saloon keeper as Billy's most hated enemy. "Say.

I think that a the only mistake the Administration has made; I'll back them In every thing else, but oh, guess Id better quit talking politic." C. E. Mitchell, president of the ra tional City Company, gave the second of the series of Liberty loan boosting talks last night. Impressing upon his hearers the extreme seriousness or tne situation "The very life of America Is at stake." he declared. "Americas work is cut out for her and every man and woman roust do his bit If we would save civilization and our coun try Itself." Trail nitters Total 1.363. In the afternoon Billy preached to some 4,000 people on "The Potter and the Clay." His call for trail nmsrs brought 26S forward. At night an au dience that comfortably filled the great pine building heard his sermon on "The Atonement" His Invitation for converts was answered by 1,093, making a total for the aay or l.aos. "The doctrine of universal salva tion is a damnable lie that crawled out of the pit of hell," Billy asserted in his night sermon. "Christ died for all, but you must come to Him to be saved. If It wasn't for His atoning blood you might as well rip the roofs off the churches and burn them down. They wouldn't be worth the lumber It took to build them. "A fellow once said to me, "Say, Bill, I don't like your slaughter house religion ' I told htm, 'You can call It that If you want to, but If you want to keep out of hell the only nay you can do It Is by faith In the blood of Jesus Christ' But let me tell you folks that I don't blame people half as much for belletlng In all these fake Isms as I do the muts who are preaching them.

NORTHCLIFFE COMES ONLY FOR BUSINESS Balfour's Successor Contem plates Only Strict Business. NOT ON BANQUETING TOUR Will Make First Call at British Embassy. LONDON, June 7. Lord Northcllffe Is going to the Unjted States for bus iness. He Is not going for a speech making or banqueting tour, but means buslnsss, and will start his work at once from an office In down town New York. This Is his own Idea of his post as successor to Foreign Minister Bal four at the head of the British war mission. Ha explained his plans tn an interview Just prior to his depar ture, which la published today, now that England's famous publicist and publisher Is about to arrive In Amer ica. "I am sot going on a speechmak ing or banqueting tour." Lord. North cllffe declared. "I propose trfklng of fices down town In New York, where I can confer on the many business interests Involved In the British and allied missions. The high honor conferred on me by the British government In' prob ably due more to the fact that I am very much at home in America, and have countless friends there, than to any particular merit of my own. "1 am hopeful not only of Impart ing any war lessons which I may have learned from many visits to the war to my Americans friends, but alio to derive Ideas which are cer tain to be evolved by American nat ural genius for Invention. "I feel much diffidence tn succeed tng so Important and charming a per sonality as Balfour, but I shall do my but to hsrmonlje the work of the allied mission And I may say to facilitate the enlistment of as many British subjects now In the United States as possible. "On my arrival I shall, of course. first report at the British embassy I la ''Washington." Northcllffe's one expressed regret waa that his post would prevent his being In Europe at the time of the, forthcoming Irish convention, in which he has taken such a keen In terest.
