"War Activities" Seems to Be
Rather a Eoose Term in
a Bill
Four House bills were vetoed and
fourteen Senate and House bills an
nounced as signed by Governor Wil
liam C. Sproul just before his de
parture for Hot Springs, Va.
The Stadtlander bill permitting
counties, cities and boroughs to make
appropriations for entertaining, aid
ing and caring for returned soldiers,
sailors and marines was vetoed on
the ground, that while the bill is
commendable "it is so loosely drawn
as not to be clearly understood" and
might in its present form "give rise
to grave abuses."
The Dunn bill repealing the State
tax on horses, etc., in Philadelphia,
is vetoed on the ground that it is
unconstitutional and that the Gov
ernor does not see a good reason for
In vetoing William Davis bill for
judges of counties having between
150,000 and 250,000 population to
employ clerical assistance, the Gov
ernor objects to the classification and
says "Lancaster county would come
within the purview of the act, while
Dauphin county would not come
within its terms. I think it is a
matter of common knowledge that
the work of the courts of Dauphin
county exceeds that of Lancaster
The Ditbrich bill amending divorce
laws is vetoed with this statement:
"I am of the opinion that there is
no necessity for this bill. The law
as it no wstandts, permits the courts
where there is a decree of divorce
entered at the suit of the wife on a
charge of cruelty on the part of her
husband to allow support of alimony
in the decree, if in the opinion of
the court such an order may be prop
er. The subject matter of tliis bill
is-one that the courts can. take care
of in entering decrees and is not
proper to be treated legislatively."
Bills signed by the Governor in
cluded the following:
Providing for salary of county so
licitor to be fixed by Commissioners
and cntroller in counties having be
tween 100,000 and 260,000.
Requiring county assessors and as
sistants in third class cities to keep
record and make return on days
actually employed.
Regulating and validating munici
pal liens and procedure.
Appropriating $6,500 for deficiency
at Shamokin State Hospital; $30,-
000 for Rittersville State Hospital.
Fixing $5 as daily pay of borough
and township assessors.
Appropriating $7,120.91 for de

Soldiers Orphans' School Commission
and $20,000 for Soldiers and Sailors

the care and maintenance of the
indigent insane.
Providing that actions in equity
brought against officials in official
capacity shall not abate because of
death, expiration of term, resigna
tion or removal from office.

Would Reconsider
New Steel Prices if
Shown Good Reason
Washington, April f>. Revised
steel prices arranged by the Indus
trial Board of the Department of
Commerce in conference with the
producers will be reconsidered if the
board is shown "good and sufficient
reason for doing so."
Chairman George N. Peek issued
the following statement, the latest
development in the controversy aris
ing from the refusal of the railroad
administration to accept the prices
on the ground that they were too
"I have never said nor intimated
that tlielndustrialßoard would stand
pat on the prices formulated with
the steel industry, no matter what
objections were brought by other
departments. Shown good and suffi
cient reason for doing so the board
will reconsider. With wisdom it
could pursue no other course."
Watching Conditions
in Archangel Region
Paris, April s.—The situation in
the Archangel region in northern
Russia has been forcibly brought to
the attention of the peace confer
ence by the publication in Paris of
the British statement that the troops
in the Murmansk and Archangel dis
tricts were in danger of extermina
tion unless they were speedily rein
forced. Brigadier General W. P.
Richardson, TJ. S. A., is on his way to
take command of the American
forces in North Russia and is ex
pected to reach Murmansk with 200
soldiers in a few days. There is
apparently no change, however, in
the avowed intention t'o take the
American troops out of the region
at the earliest possible date.
General Tasker H. Bliss and other
American representatives here, while
frankly admitting the gravity of the
situation, are inclined to believe
that the troops at distant outposts
can repeat, if necessary, before an
advance by the Bolsheviki, as ar
mored trains are available for all
the Americans in the region south of
Archangel and Murmansk.
King in Paris to Get Quick
Aid in Restoring
Paris, April 5. Belgium's case
has been laid before the peace con
ference by the most distinguished
advocate Belgium could have chosen.
King Albert has been in Paris for
the past three days, and in numer
ous conferences with the represen
tatives of the great powers he has
outlined to them the needs of his
country and told them of the steps
that must be taken immediately if
Belgium is to be restored.
King Albert has had long conver
sations with President Wilson,
Colonel Edward M. House, Premiers
Clemenceau and David Lloyd George.
These conversations led up to his
appearance before the. Council of
Four yesterday.
A member of the Belgian peace
delegation told the Associated Press
that, shorn of all its diplomatic
niceties, what King Albert told the
council might lie summarized thus:
Council Must Act
The time of promises has passed.
If Belgium is to live the council
must act.
The Associated Press is able to
state, that three questions of vital
immediate importance to the re
establishment of Belgium. finan
cially, economically and poltically,
were discussed. The first question
was the immediate advance to F.el
gium of about ten billion francs, the
second, the exportation to Belgium
from England and the United States
of raw materials, and tVie third the
cession to Belgium of the left bank
of the L'Escaut river and the Lem
berg peninsula.
Equals Germany Money
The first item represents the value
of German marks left in circulation
in Belgium. After the departure of
the Germans, the ministry of finance
sent out an urgent call to holders of
the marks to deposit them in the
banks. The amount was estimated
to be about two billion, and it had
been the government's intention to
redeem them at the par value. Bel
gium was "not prepared for the
avalanche of marks that resulted.
Eight billion marks passed through
the banks' windows into the vaults.
The banks were unable to redeem
this amount of paper, and'deposi
tors were merely given receipts,
stating that a certain amount of
marks were held to their credit until
such time as financial arrangements
could be made to reimburse them.
The payment of an immediate in
demnity by Germany was relied
upon to enable repayment for these
deposits. The indemnity thus far
has failed to materialize. Depositors
cannot draw against these credits,
with the result that some ten billions
of francs ate idle, as the banks are
paying no interest on such deposits.
The importation of raw materials
is said to he indispensable to the
retrieving of Belgium from the eco
nomic standpoint.
The correspondnt has just return
ed from an extended trip in Belgium.
Everywhere he found manufacturers
complaining of the situation arising
from the fact, that'while the Ameri
cans and British permit exportation
into Belgium of manufactured art
icles. they thus far have failed to
export into Belgium raw materials
which would permit of industries
resuming work.

First Train With Troops Will

Coblcnz, April s.—The 42nd divi

the final order, "All aboard for

from this division on board is
scheduled to leave Ahrweiler Sun
day morning. The personnel on this

headquarters staff and several small
er units. The trains will leave Sun
day afternoon and four daily there
after for six days. The transportation
otficers figure on an average time
schedule from the Rhine to Brest
of sixty hours.
Regarding Bolshevism and the
opinions of civilians in the occupied
area, Thursday's intelligence sum
mary says; "The general idea is that
Bolshevism will die of its own ac
cord, and satisfaction is expressed
that it cannot make headway in the
American zone. While recognizing
that the inhabitants owe the quiet
in the region to the American troops
it is evident that the population has
no really friendly spirit for our

arriving today was Representative
