view of the Intimate financial rela
tions between the two countries Mr.
Wilson's endeavors would He In the
direction of bringing abo': a p. ace
favorable to England. 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.

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

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.

Plans to Have T. R. Present to Help
Boost Liberty Bonds.
NEW YORK, June 7. 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.
It's distressing beyond words to think
American people hae to bgged
to feed and clothe the boys who are
willing to die for our liberty.
Sends Compliments To Kaiser.
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 wouldn't do anything
In the world that would possibly let
old Kaiser BUI get one good night's
sleep." he asserted "And It hurts me
like the dickens to see him Kt ven

went on: "Sure, we'll have Teddy, too
Gosh, I was sorry when they dldn t
let him go to France. 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.

NOT ON BANQUETING TOUR
Will Make First Call at British

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

have learned from many visits to the
war to my Americans friends, but
alio to derive Ideas which are cer

"I feel much diffidence tn succeed

British subjects now In the United
States as possible.
"On my arrival I shall, of course.

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.
