TURKISH TREATY WILL BE SIGNED AT SEVRES Place Chosen After Much Discussion It Lies Four Miles Northwest of Versailles. v Paris, July 26. Sevres, four -miles northwest of Versailles, was chosen for the signing of the Turkish peace treaty, after a long search for a place which would jgive the treaty a suffi ciently dignified and historical name, there being already treaties named Versailles, St. Germain, Paris, Grand Trianon and Fontainebleau. There re mained La Malmaison and the presi dential Summer residence at Rambouil let. Fontainebleau was considered for a time, but it had been overlooked that there already was a treaty of Fontaine bleau, which fixed the status of Na poleon and his family after his abdica tioiy. The choice finally was reduced to La Malmaison and Rambouillet, both of which were discarded in favor of Sev res, which is more accessible to Paris. Signing of the treaty, it i under stood, will actually take place in a magnificent building of the famous national porcelain manufactory. ROY MILLEN NOT "E.

Rough draft ing of his actress accepting the Demo cratic party's nomination for president waa the immediate task to day of Gov ernor Cox, following completion of maj or plans for the notification ceremonies August seventh. These, it has been de cided, will be at Montgomery county fair grounds in this city, instead of at Trails End, the governor's home, in or der to accommodate crowds expected. Although Governor Cox had many important features of his address out lined mentally, he had on his dek to day formidable piles of data, including many volunteer suggestions, to digest. He planned to lock himself iu hi li brary and, if possible, send his addres to the printer by neVt Friday, when Dayton's "home coming" amenities will be tendered him. A non-partisan civic demonstration is planned as a personal tribute. t The only interruption expected by the governor in the work on hi ad dress was a conference to day or to morrow, with Senator Fomeren o f Ohio, a member of the Senate political expenditures investigating committee, regarding continuance of its inquiry.

Sham rock IV, the big green sloop with which Sir Thomas Lipton hopes to-day to lift the America2 cup, sped first across the line'to-day at the start of the fifth in ternational yacht race, which will de cide the 1920 series. Starting on the first 15-mile leg of her 30-mile course, a run south by west half west out to sea, Shamrock passed over the starting line at the Ambrose channel lightship at 12:30:20, official time, and her rival followed at 12:31:- , after the starting signal had been sounded at 12:30. Shamrock and Iter rival broke out big reaching jibs and set their spin naker booms to starboard. Shamrock hauled on his wind and headed to the westward in an effort to get by Resolute, which was to weather and killing the Englishman's wind. Once clear skipper Burton evidently planned to wear ship and lay his course for the mark. Resolute, however, clung close to Shamrock, which lost ground ly the maneuvers. At 12:37 the two skippers still were fighting their tight little battle off the course. Finally the Englishman headed away slowly for the mark, then hauled his wind ngain and stood inshore. The match still con tinued and the skippers got far off their course, each fighting to gain the advantage of position in the run down before the wind. They seemed to main tain about an even sailing speed. At 12:45 the sloops ere moving very slowly, with Shamrock still out ahead. She had failed, however, to gain on Resolute since the start. The yachts were nearly two miles to the westward of the course. Neither skipper cared to give way snd both held on their course inshore. After the sloops had clung together a if locked, the Englishman at 12:52 began to swing on bis course with the American still to weather preparing to kill hi wind once he got on his true course for the mark boat. Apparently Captain Bt-rton could not get clear with Shamrock and he resumed the lufling match in a fight for the wind, which was so puffy that it was hard to see how the racers could finish with in the six -hour time limit. At 1:25 o'clock p. m., when the yachts had passed Scotland lightship, the dark outline of a new wind could be seen to the southwest, far down the Jersey roat. Shamrock had increased her lead slightly, but both yachts wete moving very slowly. In order to gain every slight ad vantage Shamrock's crew sat along the lee rail with their legs hanging over board, in order that the big racer might get closer to her best sailing line. At 1:32 o'clock the race was little more than a drifting. Shamrock had ghosted out about three minute ahead of Resolute, but, in point of position, it was doubtful M she was any closer the outer mark. At 1:35 o'clock the yachts were nearly five miles off their course and within three miles of the beach. At 1:41 o'clock they finally jibed over and stood along on a southerly course. Shamrock we clear of any wind inter ference by Resolute. At 1 :" Resolute passed Shamrock on the way to the outer mark and was holding a better breete. A UTOMOBILE SMASHED; OCCUPANTS INJURED Bolton Man's Car Was Run Into By Car Carrying Canadian People Between Richmond and , Jones ville. ' A party of pleasure seekers, bound for their homes in Canada at a rapid clip, rounded a bad curve between Jonesvilie and Richmond yesterday without slowing down appreciably, and collided with a Reo coming up the lull The result was that the Reo, 17,797, be longing to William D. Agan of Bolton, is about a complete wreck, and its oc cupants were in but slightly better condition. The Hudson, Quebec, 3,208, had its front axle broken so that fur ther running waa impossible 'for the time being, and the upper section of tne windshield was smashed. Other wise there were no visible signs of damage. Only one occupant in that car suffered more than a shaking tip. The Reo, driven by Mr. Agan, wss returning from Richmond, where the occupants had been attending church, and had just turned out to allow a small Buick to pass, when the Hudson shot around the outside of the curve, struck the Reo on the front left corner, and jammed it back into the bank in less than a moment's time. Mrs. Agan, who was riding beside her husband, was severely cut about the face, her whole upper lip having been laid open to the bone from a piece of the brok en w indshield, and her checks and fore head weTe also severely gashed. Mrs. Corvin had her chin laid open in the same manner, and suffered other cuts and bruises about the head. The other occupants of the car were Mrs. May, Mrs. Marquette, the mother of Mrs. Agan, and a small girl. Mrs. Marquette and Mrs. May suffered bruises about their knee?, as well as their heads, having been shot forward into the back of the front seat from the force of the collision. That the entire accident was more or lets of a joke to the Canadians was shown by their jests and light-hearted- ness, after the accident had occurred. Though they had two doctors with them, one in the Hudson, and one in a large Winton six, Quebec, 9,192, be longing to the tame party and follow ing close behind the other car, no move was made to relieve the suffering of the injured women in the Reo. Mrs. Agan and Mrs. Cm in were taken to the Fanny Allen hospital in Burlington by Dr. G. H. Newton of Wa terbury, who passed a few minutes after tjie accident had happened. The other party piled into the Winton and proceeded to Burlington, leaving the wrecked Hudson in the care of the chauffeur, to be towed to Burlington for repairs. The Reo was eventually towed to Bollon. Some idea of the speed with which the Hudson car was going may be ob tained when it is considered that the Reo was in a worse condition, after the sma-hup than the Dodge, which was struck by an engine on the crossing halfway between Barre and Mont pel icr" about four weeks ago. The party in the Hudson refused to give their names. The Canadian car is said to have been owned by L, Z. Legevin of Montreal.

For Automobile Collision on Barre Montpelier Road. A Buick runabout driven by Robert Jones of Montpclier and- an Overland car driven by H. B. Hood of Hardwick collided Saturday night about 9 o'clock at Jerue's crossing on the Montpelier Barre road, with the result that the Overland will be disabled for a few days. The steering gear of this machine suffered the heaviest damage, though the fender, as that of the Jones car, was slightly damaged. Mr. Hood de clared, it is said, that the car in front of the Jones auto had glaring lights, causing him to be unable to see for a few seconds bis exact location on the road.

Five people were in a Studebaker touring car which turned turtle down a 20-foot embankment on the Mont pelier and East Montpelier highway just below electric plant No. 5, yester day morning, but all miraculously es caped with only a few scratches apd a. good scare. They were Mr. and Mr-. Alex. Blair of Newton street, owners of the car, and three jounger people, Irene and Russell Blair, and Miss Laura Susena, also of Newton-street. Mr. and Mrs. Blair had just passed another car and drove too near tne edge of the road, where he plannAl to leave the car and with the rest of the party enter the woods nearby in tearcli of raspberries. The steep embankment was hidden by grass and hushes, the driver little realizing such a steep drop endangered his car and passengers. When the car halted at the bottom of this bank it was on onevside, the mud guards and running board naturally be ja mined and distorted somewhat when it settled thus. Besides this, the auto top was badly broken and the wind shield completely destroyed, and a rear wheel wils minus six spokes as a re sult of the sudden descent. Ernest Gregoire of this city hap pened to be the driver of the pns-n.g Ford truck, so he gave immediate as sistance to the party. The car was pulled back to the road, where exami nation divuiged the fact that the run ning power was in no way hampered and from all appearances in condition to resume a journey. The party how - ever, had reached their destination as far as the car was concerned, and con tinued into the lierry field regardless of their experiences. Later they returned to Barre in the same car. LOS ANGELES AWAKENS BY AN EARTHQUAKE Few Chimney Knocked Down, Dishes Broken and Window Rattled This Morning Ix Angele, Cal.. July 2.
