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
Although the general strike dealt
this government a mortal blow, the de
cisive fact Is that Kapp and his sup-

government being built only on ma
chine guns.
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.

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.

to Bolivia not to disturb the peaco of
South America havo been made by the
American government ns a result of the
sntl-Poruvian manifestations nt La Pax.
In connection with the communications It
was stated that Peru has sought the good
offices of tho United SUtes to prevent
Two notes have been sent, and a third

the others is received soon. The first

Ofttclnls view the situation as serious
and tho representations made by the
state department were described ns
Dispatches to the Peruvian embassy
to-day said events In Bolivia resulted
from the Influence of the Chilean govern
ment and the activity of Chilean agents.
It is known that this view Is also held
In other diplomatic and In somo official
circles here.
Emhassy officials expressed tho be
lief that there was an effort to force
Peru Into a war ngalnst Its former
ally In the war against Chile In the
eighties, out of which the Aric-Tacna

General Mantes, a candidate for the
presidency of Bolivia, who Is roported
to be leading the anti-Peruvian mani
festations, 1b being supported by Chile
and ls being supplied with arms and
ammunition from that country
The exact situation In Bolivia Ii
somewhat obscure, owing to tho rigid
censorship reported to havo heen Im
posed at La Paz. Reports reaching
Peru that Goneral Montes was mobiliz
ing Bolivian reserves caused deep con
cern. At the Peruvian embassy It was
said that If this were true, Peru
would he obliged to call out lis re
serves as Its standing army consisted
of only a few thousand men.
Peru and Bolivia are members of
the League of Nations and If they
sever diplomatic relations the cris
thus provoked would, under the art
icles of tho League covenant, be sucb
as to bring the dispute to the official
cognizance of the council of the league
Some diplomats considered such on
eventuality not at all unlikely. They
said such a case would havo a peculiar
Interest as it would afford tho first test
of the strength and power of the league.
Should Peru and Bolivia fall to submit
the dispute to the league, tho councl
might bo expected to take action on it!
own initiative. Since the court of inter
national Justice, provided for adjudicat
ing disputes, has not yet been organized
tho allied supreme council. It was said
would deal with the matter.
It was pointed out, however, that the
dispute would not necessarily have to lu
referred to the league; that by mutua!
agreement the two countries could ask
the good offices of a third power In arbi
tration, Should tho league counclt finally inter
vene or some third nation bo called in i
would not be tho first tlmo that differ
ences betweon the Latin-American repub
lics had been submitted to European arbi
tration. The recent boundary dispute
between Colombia and Venezuela was re
ferred to Switzerland for adjustment, and
before the King of Spain was called upon
to settle a similar dispute between Hon
duias and Nicaragua.

ing claims In the latter country was re
ferred to King George of England, at
thn time Philander C. Knox was secretary
of state.
