The Italians declare that un der the old regime he was their bit terest cnemr. Condemned 1,000 Italian. During the period of Italy's neu trality, the Italians say, Shumaker. as judge of the civil court in the Tren- tlno. condemned over 1.000 Italians i who had taken refuge in Italy to avoid takinr un arms against their mother country, ordering confiscation j of all their property and imposing j heavy fines and imprisonment. j Following Italy's entrance into the war, Shumaker became judge of the I military tribunal, and is alleged to ! have inflicted similar sentence on ' hundreds of other Italians, in addi- I tjon to imposing fifty death sen tences. The Italians say that Aus tria's lack of tact in including Shu maker in their delegation is not cal culated to further Austria's interests before the peace conference. "While the Italian have accepted the allies' viewpoint regarding oppo sition to a union of Austria and Ger many, they point out that this is against their interests, since they fe"ar an independent Austria may eventually succeed in heading a Bal kan confederation and resume the traditional menace to Italy. Take Up Turkish Term. Ano aiucs, n-.ar.ng comp.ev.on o. the Austrian peace treaty, have taken j up consideration or some or the Turkish terms. The rights and in terests of minority nationalities were discussed by the big four, particu larly with regard to the religious situation. In Asia Minor. A delega tion from India presented objections to any radical reduction of Turkish dominion from the standpoint of Mo hammedanism. The Inter-allted occupation of Smyrna on Wednesday is now seen as the -initial step in general assumption of control over Asia Minor prior to presentation of the Turkish treaty. - Missionaries and allied agents have warncct that publication of the terms will be a signal for wholesale mas sacre of the Christian populations In Turkey, unless proper safeguards are supplied at once. , Austrian Terms Thursday. Every indication now point5 toward submission of the Austrian terms on Thursday, the data tentatively select ed some time ago. It is believed the eje change of credentials between the allied and Austrian delegates will lake place tomorrow and that the articles of the treaty will be as sembled in time for discussion by a secret plenary session Tuesday or Wednesday. The status of the Italian situation will have tio bearing on the Austrian treaty. Austria will merely be re quired to relinquish her claims to Fiume and Palmatia, and formal dis position of these territories will re main in the hands of the peace con ference. According to the best obtainable in formation, the Austrians will be subjected to" the, same regulations governing the German delegates, with the possible exception that they will be granted a week instead of fifteen days in which to complete discus sion of the terms. RUSS EMBASSY PROTESTS REVISION OF CHINA TREATY WITHOUT REPRESENTATION The Russian embassy . has an nounced that a protest has been made to the powers against revision of the Russo-Chinese treaties by the Rus sian political conference in Paris. Announcement of the protest is contained in cablegrams, a paraphrase of which reads: "Welcoming the regeneration of I Do You Know jr That many large corporations Require a certain fraction of normal vision JJ Before an applicant for a position Will even be considered?

Delegations from' the various coastal cities, meet ing here, protested against the re ported allied plan to take over the Austrian merchant fleet, and ordered the crews of the steamers in th's port not to surrender them. They characterized the plan as "an untieard of crime." TO WITHHOLD TREATY TEXT UNTIL SIGNED PARIS. May 18. The "Big Four" decided today not to publish the full text of the German treaty until Its acceptance, it was learned from re liable sources. Representatives of India wer re ceived by that body this afternoon. CAN'T ACCEPT TREATY, SAYS PRESIDENT EBERT AMSTERDAM. May IS. President Ebert, of Germany, has sent word to the East Prussian government that the Germans "can in no way accept the peace terms in their present shape." according to a dispatch from Berlin today.

Should the Germans decjinc to sign then, it is possible that the Austrians may possibly adopt a similar atti tude but this is not expected. Latest advices received from the secret services of the allied and American governments reveal a lack of harmony of opinion in Germany that is rather peculiar. For instance. reports from .the Rhine district say that sentiment there is very strong i in favor of acceptance, despite the ! terms' severity, the people hoping to ! get a chance later on to appeal to the i League of Nations for mitigation of f them. Elsewhere, especially in eastern ' Germany, sentiment is strong for a 'rejection. Behind this latter propa- i 'ganda is apparently a wall worked out I scheme to bring about the fall of .the j present Berlln- elmer govern ment. If this Is accomplished the present regime probably would be followed by a junker government headed by Count von Bernstorff. for mer German ambassador to the United States. Marshal Foch is ready on the Rhine on the move to forward hi3 armies and to encircle the western German frontier, assisted by the American army of occupation under General Hunter Liggett and the British under General Plumer. President Wilson has again adopt- J ed the attitude of watchful waiting Ije is ready for the United States to carry out anything necessary to main tain her integrity. SMALL.SAYS MARCH! America's experience in the world war has proved that this country in safer from invasion by a foreign fo than had been estimated by officers , of the general staff of :n? army j General March, chief of staff, declared j today. j In 1015. It was estimated that Ger I many could land 387.000 men on tn.se ' shores in sixteen days, and in tin; following thirty-ono days conl 1 lan'l j 440,000 more, making a total of , S27.00O This would include 176 1 horses, equipment and supplies fr .three months. In the same forty seven days, it was estimated France could land 404.000, Japan 238.000 and ! That these figures, however, were greatly overestimated has been provrd I by America's experience in the world war, when it was found that an aver age of thirty-five days was needed I for the round trip of a transport, and , seventy for a cargo carrier. When th" estimates were made, General March stated, it was found that the transports could mukf- the round trip in less than sixty days. rne movrment of troops by America made a record dented in the hibtory of General .March said ovrrs'-ns With the Victory loan out of the way the war loan organization of the District, of which rostmabtei Merrit O.

KOLCHAK 'BEATTY OF RUSSIA' PARIS. May IS. Admiral Kolchak. whose forces are advancing from Si beria against the Bolshevik!, is rapid ly assuming, a favored position in the eycs of the aied governments, it was - learned' today. In British circles he is now being referred to as the "Beatty of Russia." A French general has been with Kolchak's army for some time, it now develops, and the opinion is expressed in French quarters that if any of the present Russian factions are recog nized, it will be that headed by Kol chak, the so-called Omsk government. His armies are about a third of the way from Omsk to Moscow. Ameri- cans are non-committal regarding the French suggestion that the United States probably, will see its way clear to recognize Kolchak if the other allied governments do. In the meantime the Finns have given assurance that they can take l'etrograd any time they desire. The difficulty appears to be. however, that in that event thy would have to feed the population, and they lack the fa- cilities for that. Therefore, it is pointed out that the Finns probably will not attempt to seize Petrograd without British assistance and assur ance of food. Tchitcherln Scores Kolchak. I . In the face of this new swing in the Russian tangle. Foreign Minister Tchitcherin. in replying to Doctor Xansen-'s proposition for the allies to feed Russia through a neutral com mission, referred to Kolchak's govern- I menl an "a rmrAlv mnnanttiii,! nn.A.- beloncrinc- in th. mot Vn r.o. of Ozarism." The full text of the Tchitcherln note has not been received and the portions that have arrived are badly garbled, leaving some room for doubt as to whether it is a final rejection of Xansen's proposition or is possibly an outline of conditions as Tchitcherln understands them, with counter-suggestions. The note thanks Xansen profusely ; for the offer, continuing: "If left in I i nn'jua 3,4 nllM,,nJ ... l.. t t.

On the basis' of a humanitari an eftiirt to succor a suffering peo ple, we would do all in our power to insure the -realization of your project. Unhappily, your charitable intentions have been mixed by others with po litical designs. We regret your in tentions have been perverted by the governments, of the associated "pow ers." Tchitcherin then points out that the soviet government accepted the invitation for a general conference at Prinkipo. whereas the Omsk gov ernment and all other anti-J5ol-shevik factions rejected.it. Call Kolchak Allien' Tool. "We were not the cause for failure of the Prinkipo plan." said Tchitche rin: it was our adversaries, the pro-! leges or the associated powers that is. the counter - revolutionary gov ernments of Kolchak, Denikin. and others. Those are the tools by the help of which the allies are fighting to destroy us." Dispatches received from Vienna today said that a wireless from I Tchitcherin to Foreign Minister Bela i Kun at Budapest had stated that th j Ukrainian red army had driven- the J Rumanians across the Dneistcr and that the latter were fleeing. A Moscow wireless reported that a cruiser and two destroyers of un- ' known identity had bombarded the ' region north of Rop.-ha. twenty-four) miles north of Petrograd. but that no material damage was done.
