MINE FOREMAN KILLED IN POWDER BLOW-UP British Newspapers Regret Failure of United' States to Participate in Formal ActThere Are Some Gloomy-Fore- , . bodings. . v : London, Jan. 12. Ratification of the treaty of Versailles fails to elicit ifciy expressions I of joy from the London press, Editorials m this mornings newspapers express, at best, qualified satisfaction, while some journals strike a distinctly doleful note. "It is ift time of triumph or.soaring hopes," says The Telegraph, which, giv ing some reasons for its troubled view, adds: "The omission of America's sig nature to the ratifying document stands for the bitter .disappointment of the hope that' glowed with promise for hu manity a year ago. It is true the league of nations exists' by the terms of the treaty, but the world" knows that unless and until the United States ad heres to the league and participates in its actions not a tithe of the usefulness and moral authority it should possess will belong to it." " The nowspaper also cites the absent of Russia from .Saturday's ceremony and says: - - ''I'ntil the sky in that direction grows clearer there can be no w-orld peace nor any hope of it." Doubts of the reality of peace behind the formal act of ratification are ex pressed by the Daily News... After noting regretfully that Amer ica "which did so much to make peace," has no part in the final act. The News continues: "Assuredly this drab agree ment is-not the peace to which men looked forward with straining eyes and heart a short vear ago. It might -al most seem as though the darkness of the time had the power to turn peace itself into a mere, mean, anti-climax to the ghastly horror of war." "Arc. we near peace?" 'aks The Graphic, which says nobody can answer this question with a hopeful affirma tive. The paper, cites in proof of this statement the present industrial unrest, the troubled state of India. Egypt and Ireland, and the "socialist conspiracy to destroy by relentless class warfare the whole existing structure of so ciety." The Chronicle, deploring the cause of the league of nations, says it is being "much weakened bv the action of the American .Senate," In commenting upon the ratification GERMAN STRIKE " IS INCREASING Despite Appeal of Govern ment to Railroad Men , to Resume Work REGULATIONS ARE THREATENED Telegraph Employes Are on Strike in Several Districts BRITAIN SENDS ENVOYTOBERLIN Makes Prompt Move to Re ' sume Former Relations .

The manifesto concludes with the an nouncement that special regulations will be proclaimed, if necessary, to cope with the situation. It is announced that the freedom of the press, the right of assembly and the right to strike have been suspended by order of the president in districts where the railway strike is in progress. , Meanwhile, the railwaymen of BeuUi en, Rutibor and other upper Silesian towns have gone on strike.

STRUGGLING WtTU ADRIATIC PROBLEM London, Jan. 12. Lord Kilmarnock left London for Berlin this morning to assume his duties of British diplomatic representative at the German capital.

V New York, Jan. 12. Thirty-five ex- tPdlniata t..rt. ......... 1 A.. arrive at Ellis island to-day to await deportatfon. They were arrested in raids last November and were to have been deported on the soviet ark Buford, which at last reports was at Kiel, Ger many, on it way to put 213 anarchists in. soviet Russia, but their transporta tion here could not be arranged at that time. ' This resumption of shipments of redn from other points of the eountrv to New York does not mean the departure of a second soviet ark in the nfear fu ture, according to Byron H. Llil, com missioner at Ellis island. Uhl said he understood the reason for to-day's shipment was that the jail ac commodations at Detroit were inade quate. The Detroit arrivals will make a to tal of 564 anarchist cases at the island, including 32 women. Preliminary hearings had been com pleted to-day for 60 of those taken in raids this month, the process' having been retarded by the refusal of some reds, including Gregory ; Weinstein. a friend of Trotzky and reputed "master mind" of communists in the United States to answer questions unless counsel were present.
