Around this the guests gathered and gave their orders to a white coated profes sional drink mixer who presided behind tho polished mahogany. If a woman guest who had been trivial all forenoon In her limou mii". and was a little chilled in consequence, felt the need of a drink with an extia kick in it, she ordered a Snzarac co'-Utall.

AMSTERDAM, April 17. — Ber lin's general strike is crippling the output of metal and wood and tie ing up transportation facilities, according to dispatches received here.

I YON OUT AT WORK PEACING (United Vrrmm Leased Win,) CHRISTIANIA, April 17.— Germany is shortly to issue to neutrals a statement of the terms on which she considers peace ne gotiable, according to rumors in diplomatic circles today. The reports came from sources known to be closely identified with the German officials' plane. Scandinavia Is the center of Germany's peace efforts, aimed at Russia. That the Teutonic offi cials are bending every effort to realization of their hope of separ ate peace with the new provisional government at Petrograd is ap parent in every quarter here. American diplomatic officials have been formally advised that the German government is behind the pseudo-socialist movement for peace. It was the German gov ernment that apparently started the socialist propaganda work, and It was the German govern ment that pushed it by active sup port. Count yon Bernstorff, prime apostle of peace propaganda work, has been selected as German Am bassador to Sweden, purely in line with this Russian effort. Meanwhile. German propagan dists of lesser caliber spread re ports of Germany's desire for peace—carefully avoiding, how ever, any statement of terms.

He is in charge of publicity for the Everett Prisoners' Defense league, and he Is a radical of the radicals; so revolutionary that he even dares to defy the tradition that a revolutionist shall be a sin ister and mysterious-looking per son. He is young, small, mild-man nered, and speakti literary Eng lish with a fine British accent. He was born in London. As a boy lie was for a time an assistant secretary In the Fabian society of socialists and free-thinkers, and saw and heard Bernard Shaw, H. O. Wells and other famous mem bers. A little later, he tramped through England with the army of the unemployed, haranguing the crowds and stirring the miners of South Wales to organization. Loves Adventure. Ordinary life was tame, natural ly, after that, and Ashleigh, went to South America. In Buenos Ayres he was for a little while in the accounting de partment of a railway; then he took a contract to string telegraph wires along the right of way. He had never strung a wire In his life, or seen it done, but he hired a foreman who did know how, assembled a gang of Guaran) Indians, and started out. It was a colorful experience. "The Indians aren't really a bad sort at all, you know," Ashleigh explains, "but they do drink. One night the cook shot his brother, in my tent. They were all riot ing around so it was hard to tell anything about it, and the au thorities got hold of me, as being the handiest person, I suppose, and put me in jail, until the British consul came and cleared tilings up." Take- Loins Hike. After the construction gang epi sode and an interlude of cow punching on one of the huge Ar gentine ranches, Ashleigh returned to Buenos Ayres and "did society" and hotel news for a daily paper. Then, one day being too much like another in this occupation, he de cided to walk across South Amer ica. With one companion, an artist, he crossed the continent to Val paraiso, lecturing wherever there was a civilized community large enough to furnish an audience, stopping at the native houses along the road to drink "mate," clinib- Jng the Andes, and chumming with the much-feared brigands of that region. "They never once tried to steal anything from me," he says. "I told them I was poor myself, and believed in the cause of the poor, and they gave me cigarettes and Invited me to sit at their fires." From Valparaiso he tramped alone through Chile and Peru to Callao, and shipped hefore the mast on a sailing vessel for Port land. Studies Vagrancy. That was in 1912.
