Special Commissioner. 1 morning will vie heartily with those I who have r,o nobly placed their shoul derte to the wheel. Our old city has heretofore re joiced on similar occasions. It is | incumbent upon it to do so again, more so now than ever. Soldiers returning to their homes after the thrilling days of 1776-1783, received the honor due thm, as did those who fought in the second war for inde pendence in 1812. Survivors of the Indian wars, those of the Mexican war, the war between the States.. Spanish-American war and the move ment on Mexico several years ago were all received with open arms after >,hey had performed their du'y to their country. The Alexandrians who braved th: Atlantic, defying the elements and German submarines ,ar.d fought upon the plains of Picardy to pr:serve Liberty should be tendered a r ya! welcome upon their return tD the city of their birth. The Chamber of Commerce h?s the matter in hand, and this organi zation should have the undivide i sup port of every citizen. The words of the civil war song "When Johhny Comes Marching Home Again," can be used with as great enthusiasm in 1919 as th-" were in I860. "The Store of Greater Service" Washington, D. C. !

Paris, May 22.?A week of grace was granted Germany by the allied and associated governments .yester day in reply to her plea that so vase was the task of putting all her com plaint?. in writing, ' and =ro intricate were th> details of the "expert" re search required, that she could not possibly have all her notes in by 1 o'clock r.con today, which was the original time st. As thirds new stand, sh? mir-t have filed the last line of her "writ ,/ i . ,/ , i , - ten observation" -by 1 o'clock noon on May 29, a week from tomorrow. Almost simultaneously with this announcement came news from Ber lin, again putting the Eber't govern ment unequivocally on record as an nouncing its refusal to sign the treaty in its present form. A carefully worded statement was issued by the Berlin ministry, re peating all the protestations publicly uttered by various ministers and by Ebert himself during the last few wesks. Like all previous utterances it "pfays up to" American public opin ion and to President Wilson, basing the whole German defense on the fourteen points. ^ Incidentally, it calls the Versail les treaty a "Hymn of Hate." At this cabling it is not known wheether the Berlin statement was made public before or after the re quest for an extension of time was granted. The general opinion, how ver, is that it was held in readiness and not "sprung" until Count von Brockdorfr-Rantzau had in his pock et Premier Clemenceau's written communication extending the time limit.
