KAPP GOVERNMENT COLLAPSES AFTER ENSURING 5 DAYS Self Appointed Chancellor and Dictator and His Supporters, Lacking Political Prestige, De cide to Quit People of Berlin Fear Some thing Is Going to Happen City Still Tied Up By Strike Berlin, Mnrch 37. By the Arsoclated I'rePB) After holding tho reins of power for lew than live days. Dr. Wolfgang Kapp, tho pe.lf-appolntod chancellor and dictator, has retired from office and con trol. He resigned to-day, nnd an offi cial communication explained that the chancellor considered his mission fulfilled when the old government decided to meet tho most essential demands addressed to it. He also was moved to this action by tho extreme necefislty of tho fatherland, which demanded union against the dan cers of Bolshevism. The omelal communique announcing tho resignation of Chancellor Kapp, endeav ors to give a patriotic aspect to his with drawal, hays: "The Bauer government having volun tarlly decided to fulfill tho most essen- tlal political demanos addressed to it. tho rejection of which on Saturday led to tho establishment of tho Kapp government. Chancellor Knjip considers bin mission fulfilled and retires, resigning tho execu tive power again Into the hands of tho military commander-in-chief. "In this he Is moved by the con"ictlon of the extreme necessity of the father land, which demands solid union of all against the annihilating dangers of Bol shevism." The leal circumstances of Kapp's re tirement are still shrouded In mystery An Important factor undoubtedly Is to be found In the deliberations of the under secretaries and Imperial council yester day, which Major-Qenoral von Luettwitz attended. The views of this conference were that both Kapp and Von Lmettwltz withdraw in order to terminate an intol erable position. Von I.ucttwitz agreed to this, but when he returned to tho chancellery ho allowed himself to be persuaded to chango hi mind nnd retain office. To him has been delegated the executive power of the for mer revolutionary chancellor, and it Is difficult to say what will happen now that Von Luettwitz remains Uie military dicta tor of Berlin. It Is reported, however, that Gustav Noske. minister of defense In tho old government, is coming here to-nlght, and that Von Luettwitz perilous will rnnsfor his new-found authority to him. In conference with the foreign corre spondents yesterday, Kapp's press chief made, play with the Bolshevist danger. In a second conference an attompt was made to conceal the fact that tho Berlin government was likely to be of only short duration. Although the general strike dealt this government a mortal blow, the de cisive fact Is that Kapp and his sup- F.

Virginia ro publicans laid plans for the presidential campaign In convention here to-day, with Will II. Hayos, national chairman, as tho principal spc.ker. "We have heard It suggested that tho South noeds the republican party," Mr. Hayes said. "This Is true, but I say that tho Republican party needB the South, that wo may fulfill our avowed purpose and function In our faithful performance as a real national party." Mr. Hnves made hitter criticism of 1'res- Ident Wilson's administration, declaring the President had a "one track mind nnd a side track cabinet."

The statements made at these con ferences gave a strange Impression and caused a suspicion that tho cry of alarm about tho Uolshovlts was i preliminary to the announcement of i retreat. The chief of tho press bureau warned the correspondents against showing themselves In the streets as a. communist revolt waa expected hourly. That any kind of compromise Is out of tho question now Is undoubted. , President Jlbert of the old government i Is strongly entrenched at Stuttgart. , whore, according to semi-official ad-j vcles the council of the empire met to- day and unanimously npproved the old government and strongly condemned tho military coup at Berlin Krlghtenod Borllners laot night wer asking: "The white nr red terror! Which?" This was In ronnetiuonce of an official announcement that the reds wore, planning a rising and calling upon the people to save the country from Bolshevism. Government official.! said to the As sociated Press: "Wo fear bloodshed to-nlght: it is dif ficult for us to hold the troops back." In preparation for the expected rising officials camped In their offices nil night. When tho correspondent left the chan cellery at night fall Into the darkening Wllhelmstr.isse. soldiers were bringing huge boxes of food and cases of wine. Berlinors generally scurried to their homes, apprehensively seeking refuge and locking their doors. Notwithstanding Dr. Kapp's resigna tion, Berlin seems destined to have troub lous times. An Influential member of tho government, talking with the correspond ent Tuesday, insisted upon the urgency of suppressing the strike movement and communist opposition. He added: "Time Is on the side of the communists, and every hour we let slip weakens our posi tion. We may expect great events between now and to-morrow." The great events, beginning with the retirement of Kapp nrc evidently moving to a climax. Kbort sent an airplane over Berlin dropping leaflets and 'predicting tlie early collapse, -of- the Berlin govern ment. The utter tie-up of the city continued to-day and there Is no evidence of the breaking down of the strike. So far ns Is known, no fresh supplies of food have been received, and prices are Jumping almost hourly. The striking wator plant employes released a sufficient amount to fluBh tho sewers, to prevent the out break of disease, but little Is avallablo for drinking purposes.

NEW RESERVATION DEFEATED 39-25 The "Grave Concern" Modifica tion of Article Ten Doesn't Go Ratification Vote Will Be Taken Friday Washington, March 17. The republican Irroconcllables, combining with the demo crats overturned on tho Senate floor to day the plan of republican leaders to nt tRfli to tho peace treaty a general dec laration of American policy toward future European wars. Tho declaratory reservation, which would pledge the United States, to regard with "grave concern" any throat to Europe's peace or freedom, was voted down 2.', to 3U after the Irrcconollables had tried In vain to amend It. Intended as an offset to the reservation denying the obligation of article ten, the proposal had been expected by the republican leaders to attract many democratic votes, but on the roll call only two senators on the democratic side supported it. Disposition of the reservation was re garded as clearing up the last doubtful issue of the treaty fight, and the lenders Immediately made plans to bring a vote on ratification by Friday. By unanimous consent It was agreed to limit speeches on all other pending reservations to 11 ft can minutes, and to continue to-morrow's session into the evening If neces sary to put the ratification resolution Into final form. About a dosen reserva tions remain to be voted on, but It gen erally Is conceded that none of them will bo adopted. As tho ratification controversy neared a conclusion, William J. Bryan began a series of conferences with democratic senators, throwing the weight of his In fluence against tho ndvlce of President Wilson that tho administration Senate forceB vote against ratitlcntlon with the republican reservations. Mr. Bryan Is understood to have told his friends In the Senate to take tho best ratification they could get, but there was no evidence to night that he had materially weakened tho democratic forces' standing out against the republican program. Action on tho declaratory reservation, which was Introduced by Senator Len roto, republican, Wlsconson, was reachod after the Senate had extricated Itself with some difficulty from the debate started yesterday on the Irish question. Two propositions Intended to aid toward Irish Independence were laid aside byvotes of more than two to ono discussion on each of them being ended summarily by a motion to lay on the table, not debatablo under Senate, rules. The first proposal, by Senator Shields, democrat, Tennessee, was offered as an amendment to a pending reservation on Egypt, which was tabled with all Its pro posed amendment-by..a .vote oLXA to 2t. The subject immediately was revived, howovor, In a reservation Introduced by Senator Ileed, democrat, Missouri, which was laid on the table 4G to Zl. Debate on the reservation to declare a European policy was brief. Senator I.en root advocating It as a means of show ing the nation's good faith toward its recent allies and Senator Williams, dem ocrat. Missouri denouncing It as a "stu pendous piece of humor" which meant nothing and would result In nothing. Senator Borah of Idaho, leader of the republican irreconcilable?, proposed to add to the reservation a proviso that the United States would reserve "Independ ent and uncontrolled power" In deciding what it would do, nnd at first Senator Lonroot accepted the amondment. Later, however, he withdrew his assent, declar ing the change might eliminate all of the obligations assumed by the treaty, and Senator Borah withdrew his amendment and announced he would vote against the reservation. v In addition to the declaratory reserva tion and the two relating to Ireland, the Senate acted during the day on only two reservations. One by Senator Norrls, republican, of Nebraska, withholding assent to the British protectorate over Egypt, was rojected, 51 to lo, and one by Senator Owen, democrat, Oklahoma, de claring the armistice terms still binding, was beaten, .ri3 to 2.
