REIGN OF TERROR
ENpS IN BERLIN
[Continued from First Page.]
exceed two hundred dead and a
thousand wounded. The over
whelming majority of these are
Bolshevists- ,
London, Jan. 15.—N0 renewal of
disturbances in Berlin Is reported In
the latest advices. The government,
having successfully survived "Red
week" now is applying Itself to the
business of maintaining order and
preparing for the elections to the
national assembly Sunday.
Gustav Noske announces he will
keep sufficient troops in the city to
safeguard the elections. Government
troops are active and are disarming
all the remaining Red bands und sup
pressing the dangerous aftermath of
robbery and pillaging by the defeat
ed and dispersed Spartacan ele
ments. the leaders of which, in9lud
ing former Chief of Police Elchhorn,
whose resistance to dismissal was
the focus of the uprising, have all
begn arrested oa have fled.
I.lcbkiicclit Is Missing
Rumor is busy about Dr. Lieb
knecht, the Spartacan chief, but
nothing reliable is known of his fate
or whereabouts. The new police pres
ident, Richter. is reorganizing and
arming the police force which will
contain no Spartacan elements.
All the election results in South
Germany announced up to the pres
ent show that the Independents ev
erywhere have been defeated.
The Bourse, which was closed dur
ing the disturbances, will reopen on
Wednesday.
All civilians are to be armed to
defend Berlin. Gustav Noske deliver
ed a speech in front of the foreign
office Sunday, thanking the troops
for what they have accomplished. He
said troops had been collected for
threatened troubles In the east, but
they had been employed In Berlin
instead. It was impossible to restore
order at the frontiers while in the
capital might was going before
right.
Noske added that as soon as Ber
lin was normul the troops would be
sent to their original destination, but
a sufficient number would be retain
ed to safeguard the elections for the
assembly. The speaker concluded by
saying the German government had
notforgotten for an inßtant Its duty
to its brethren in the east and had
done everything to protect them in
the future securely and lastingly
against "Polish despotism."
It is proposed to make the illegal
possession of arms and ammunition
punishable with immediate death.
The military men now co-operating
with tho government propose to
show the insurgents no mercy ami
they amply demonstrated this policy
during the recapture of the Vor
waerts building and police head
quarters.
Hundreds Under Arrest
, It Is declared by creditable eye
witnesses that lite new government
troops in both actions Saturday beat
down with bayonets and with clubs
and otherwise killed scores of men
who wer Spartacan guards or civil
ians caught with arms. Hundreds of
persons already have been arrested.
The last ripples of the tidal wave
which has swept over Berlin in the
past seven days now are being felt
in the spread of robbery and looting
which is being carried on by soldiers
and sailors who detached thentsblves
from Spartacan units. Berlin to-night
is virtually defenseless against law
lessness.
Yorwaerts Building a Fortress
The material loss and disorder
caused by the rebels was especially
heavy in the plants of tho Yorwaerts
and the Tageblatt. Records and ac
counts were strewn about and bulky
ledgers wer Jammed into windows
to serve as barricades for riflemen.
The Yorwaerts building was con
verted Into a veritable fortress and
arsenal. After a breech had been
blown in with cannon the Sparta
cans began to weaken and later gave
in.
Government Y'ct Impetus
The reinstatement and arming of
the police gives the government a
new force of trained men who know
the criminal world and whoso ab
sence during the first days of the
revolution gave the disorderly ele
ment a free hand. Police records,
including those of the Berttllon sys
tem, were not destroyed, as was first
reported. Detectives are already
rounding up old acquaintances anijl
the work of disarming lawless elel
ments is proceeding.
Property loses during the past
week of terror amount to tens of
millions of marks in addition to the
damage to newspaper plants and
government buildings. Merchants'
losses through looting are very high,
one youth being captured with sixty
thousand marks worth of jewels
which he had stolen. 'ln some
streets near the police headquarters
nearly every store was systematically
looted.
Bolshevist troops holding 'the
Silesian station had so much butter
that they used it to grease their guns
and boots.
Center of City Is Quiet
The center of the city fias been
quiet all day to-day. Late this even
ing a few shots were heard in dif
ferent parts of the town, being fired
by snipers and looters. Merchants
having shops along Unter den
Linden took down their shutters and
business went on as usual.
The government has no intention
of slackening its efforts against the
Spartacans ,tlie Abend Zeitung says
it learns from best authority. Ener
getic measures are being taken
against the leaders of the move
ment. It is reported that docu
ments found by loyal troops show
that tho Spartacan uprising was in
spired from Moscow.
Dr. Karl Liebknecht, the Sparta
can leader. Georg Ledebour, head of
the revolutionary Independent Social
ist element, and the immediate sup
porters of these revolutionary chiefs,
were so certain their plans for the
recent uprising would succeed that
they had prepared a proclamation,
dated January 6, in which the Ebcrt-
Scheidentan government was declar
ed deposed and formal announce
ment made that the government had
been taken over by the revolution
ists.
The proclamation wns addressed
to "I'ontrades! Workmen!" and was
s.gned by "the revolutionary com
mittee, per l.odebour, ldebknecht
and Soholio," It was presented to
ldeutenunt Hamburger at the min
istry of WIT on January 6, by a nta
ilne who appeared before the min
istry with three hundred armed men
rrotn the royal stable which was then
one of the headquarters of the revo
lutionists .The marine demanded that
the ministry be turned over to him.
I.leut. Hamburger, observing that the
signatures were typewritten, object
ed to them as Invalid, saying he was
ready to surrender the ministry to
the new government If the docu
ment were properly signed,
The troops withdrew and return
ed later with the proclamation
bearing the personal signatures of
LJebknect and Scholae, together with
an annotation by Dr. Uebknecht
(signing himself us "the representu-
tlve of Georg Ledebour, who la for
the moment ahaent."
Lieut. Hamburg took the procla
mation but retained the ministry In
his own hands.

British Censors Will Pass
All Peace Messages
London, Jan. 157 —The British for
elg-n office announced to-day that the
government does not intend to exer
cise any censorship over press mes
sages during the Peace Conference.
It states that It has also received a
similar assurance from the French
government.
McCORMICK QUITS
THE CHAIRMANSHIP
[Continued from First Page.]
President. Ncf announcement has
been made, however.
Otflcials at the White House de
clined to discuss the report that Mr.
Sharp would return home to be suc
ceeded by Mr.. McCormick. but it
seemed to have credence in other
officiul circles. Mr. McCormick was
appointed chairntan of the War
Trade Board after the United States
entered the war and devoted all his
time to that work. -*
The Democratic National Commit
tee to-day announced that a meet
ing would be held February 26 to
elect McCorntick's successor. Homer
S. Cummings, vice-chairman, is ex
pected to be the new chairman.
While it is true that Ambassador
Sharp has tendered his resignation
to the President, it was stated on
good authority that there is no real
foundation for the report that Mr.
McCormick is going to succeed him
as American Ambassador to France.
Official circles to-day pronounced the
report as "at least premature." ,
When Mr. MeCormick left Wash- '
lngton, it was learnd he told some i
of his intimate friends that his work j
with the Peace Commission would ,
hold him in Paris for at least six ;
months. He felt that it would not be
fair td the Democratic Committee to j
remain longer at Its head while so
actively engaged In official service
and during so long a contemplated
absence in France, and it was then
that he left his letter of resignation
with the committee in Washington.
The resignation of Ambassador
Shirp is not a complete surprise. It
was quietly intimated when he re
turned recently to this country that
he did not care to return to his Am
bassadorial post. The presentation of
his resignation to the President is
believed to be based on the belief of
Mr. Sharp that the cessation of hos
tilities afforded him a convenient op
portunity to leave the diplomatic
service.
It has been intimated several times
recently that Mr. Baruch might be
the next Ambassador to France. But
in quarters usually well informed it
is insisted that neither Mr. MeCor
miek nor Mr. Baruch was being con
sidered at this time for the Paris
diplomatic post.
LOAN AGENCIES LIMITED'
Loan agencies may not charge
more than two pep cent, per month
upon sums exceding $lOO and not
exceeding $6OO and this rate of in
terest cannot be legally increased to
thre pee cent, per month on any '
unpaid balance at any time, ac
cording to an opinion rendered to
day by Attorney Genral Brown to
Daniel F. Lafean, State Banking
Commissioner. Three per cent, is
collectable on sums less than $lOO,
but when a larger sum Is reduced to
less than that sum the original rate
of interst must s'.ill continue.

GUERILLA BANDS
IN LITHUANIA
DO BIG DAMAGE
Tear Clothing From Man and j
Wife Until They Get
Money
By .•istociated Prett
Warsaw, Jan. 16.—Bolshevik guar
rilla bands ar carrying out many
depredations in Lithuania as they
advance toward Warsaw. A land
owner named Mlchulsky, who has ar
rived In Warsaw, says twenty armed
men surrounded his house and de
manded money. When he told them
he did not have much, the bandits
tore the clothes from lilm and his
wife, beat the woman with a whip
and pounded Mlchulsky with the
butts of their yana until he agreed
to give them 15,000 rubles.
The band told Mme. Mlchulsky, who
Is French, that she belonged to the
"dlr®- Allies."
"All your people will soon be like
us. There will not be any more prop
erty owners. We are going to War
saw and then we will overrun Eu
rope."
Eater the bandits i\Bked for more
money and tortured the couple until
Mme. Mlchulsky became unconscious
and her husband's wrists were brok
en. Mlchulsky gave them 15,000 ru
bles more, all the money he had.
Then, after stealing all the clothing
and valuables In the house and the
horses on the farm, the men demand
ed liquor. Finding that there was
none, they gave the pair a final beat
ing and went to. a neighboring
house.
They did not find any money there,
so Mlchulsky says. They set Are to
the house and shot down the family
as they fled. A girl of IS almost es
caped, but was brought down with a
second shot as she ran. The ban
dits then beat her to death with the
butts of their guns.
Tlje commanders of the retiring
German troops are reported to be
carrying on systematic schemes of
getting money. One plan Is to sell
the farms hack, to their owners be
fore retiring, or. If they are unwilling
to buy to sell them to the peasants.
LEAGUE OF NATIONS
IN FIRSTJHOUGHTS
[Continued from First Page.]
be police control but (he weight of
public opinion. Public opinion, bow
ever, would be sufficient to insure
at least that any future war would
be reduced to single disputes—that
is, there would never be another
war like the present one."
Lord Robert would not go so far
as to say there would be no more
wars, but he expressed confidence
that they would be confined to the
immediate disputants.
Public Opinion First
"In the daily life of any country."
Ford Robert Cecil continued, "it is
public opinion and not the police
man which controls the conduct of
the people. You have yourselves seen
that even in cases wlfere law and
public opinion clash public opinion
wins."
As to the machinery of a league
of nations, Ikird Robert said there
should be an international secretar
iat operating permanently to carry
on the routine business between
meetings of the main international
tribunal. The main triburnal would
meet periodically, perhaps every
month or six weeks, to handle mat
ters of moment.
Ford Robert Cecil also said the
league should do away with all
treaties inconsistent with its tenets,
including compacts providing for a
balance of power.
Monroe Doctrine Safe
Asked what effect the formation of
a league of nations would have upon
the Monroe IJpctrine, Lord Rob
ert asserted he could see no conflict
with the doctrine. Asked what would
happen if Mexico or a South Ameri
can country did something that
caused trouble with the league, he
replied:
"Then, I think, an agreement
could be made by which America
could act in behalf of the league."
Regarding the admission of the
I Central Powers and their allies to
the league. Lord Roberts said they
should be admitted, "if they showed
an inclination to do the right*thlng."
Speaking of Germany, he said:
Huns Must Make Good
"We must await events. If she
turns over a new legf and tries to re
pair the damage she has done, thero
is no reason why she should not join.
The league is for the good of hu
manity, and not for any select group.
It will benefit her if she comes in."
With the resumption to-day of the
meetings preliminary to the peace
conference, it is apparent that the
movement to create a league of na
tions is being carried on by two
forces, having the same object but
differing as to the means for making
effective the decisions of the pro
posed world society. One of these
represents the contention that the
decisions of the league must be back
ed by its combined physical forces,
while the other represents the view
that its findings can be enforced
without the aid of a common world
police force.
Move Toward Common Ground
Diplomatists seem Impressed with
the view that both these ideas are
moving toward a common ground
which, for example, might provide
that the nations could reserve for
each individual case their decision
whether they would utilize armed
forcf> or nvall themselves of other
means.
There Is reason to believe that
such an arrangement would be sup
ported by some of the European
statesmen and there is nothing to
indicate that it would be rejected
by the American representatives.
The work before to-dny' session of
the Supreme Council comprised com
pletion of the allotment of represen
tation of the various nations, and
further .consideration as to whether
Russia .should have delegates In the
larger body. These matters aro ex
pected to be entirely disposed of by
Saturday, when the first sitting of tlie
peace congress will be held.
league lias First Coll
The program commonly agreed
upon calls for primary consideration
of the forming of a league of nations,
and the congress will work on this
to the exclusion of all other subjects.
The effort aems to be to bend all en
ergies to the laying of the foundations
of the league, so that the conference
may proceed to tne actual making of
the peace treaty In the early spring,
even if It be only a preliminary one
which will dispose of the pressing
question of demobilization and the
return of the warring countries as
nearly as possible to the economic
conditions of peace. This Is recog-
nlzed by all the statemen as of the
utmost necessity*
President Wilson will have before
him an Independent estimate of the
actual physical damage suffered by
France and Belgium during the war
when the peace congress reaches the
stage of discussing Indemnities, A
survey Is being planned and will
probably be conducted by mere than
two hundred army oflloers chosen es
pecially for the work.
Bill of Damage* Great
Some observers believe the bill
of actual damages will be so great
that the Entente nations probably
will be more concerned with the abil
ity of the German people to pay it
than with the possibility of exact
ing further damages in the nature of
punitive Indemnities and war costs.
President Wilson's attitude toward
the question of what Indemnities nre
to bo exacted from Germany has
been made plain on several occa
sions. lie believes that damages
should be restricted to restitution,
reparation and restoration and
should not be extended to financial
punishment of the German people.
May Visit England Again
President Wilson may visit En
gland on his way back to the United
States next month, but not to con
fer with statesmen there. He has
hoped to be able to sail from a Brit
ish port, probably Queenstown, and
have an opportunity to Inspect the
base of the American flotilla which
did such remarkable work In the
antisubmarine warfare.
Mr. Wilson, It Is said, might de
cide, If he visits England, to stop
for a few hours at Oxford to reoelve
an honorary degree which that uni
versity wishes to confer on him,
london, Jan. 15.—Commenting
upon the onference between Pre
mier Orlando, of Italy, and Presi
dent Wilson last Friday, the Paris
correspondent of the Dally Mall
says that persons In touch with the
Italian mission declare the premier
was surprised at Mr. Wilgop'g atti
tude.
Wilson Finn In Refusal
"President Wilson was firm In his
refusal to recognize Italian claims
beyond Trieste and Trent," the cor
respondent writes. "It Is known that
Foreign Minister Sonnlno, of Italy,
demands an Important part of the
Dalmatian coast, as well as the
Fiume, while Premier Orlando
would be content to give up the
Dalmatian coast If sure of Flume.
It Is reported that even on this point
Mr. Wilson was unwilling to give
way.
Italy May Incur Enmity
"While the majority of the inhab
itants of Fiume are Italians that
port is the natural outlet for the
Austrian Slavs. It Is said, therefore,
claimed that a few thousand Italians
in Flume dare not to be balance
the needs for a sea outlet for millions
of Slavs, it Is pointed out that the
commercial necessities of the Jugo-
Slavl demand an outlet to the Adria
tic and that if Italy ignores these
necessities she may incur the en
mity of those populations and create
a new danger to the peace of
Europe."
