' Washington. ? Agitators of extrem ism apparently attempted to inaugu i rate another reign of terrorism throughout the country through the planting of infernal machines near the | residences of prominent men. Within a few minutes after the ex plosion of a bomb at the .door of At i torne.v General Palmer's residence in Washington, with the killing of omj man, evidently the person plaurlng the ? bomb, reports were received from Bos ton and Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Phila delphia, ? Paterson and Newtonville, I Mass. The explosions in the other cities were followed at midnight by the one in New York, where a bomb exploded in the house of Charles C. \Nott, Jr., judge of General Sessions. Two persons ? supposedly a man and a woman? were blown to atoms by the terrific blast. Bits of their bodies were thrown through open windows into the rooms of officers at th'e Army Trans port Club, across the street. Parts went as high as fourth floor rooms oi the club. Shreds of a man's gray trousers and bits of a woman's shawl, as well as the remains of a woman's shoes, were found in the street. Coming on the heels of the nation wide May Day plot, Secret Service of ficials could only interpret explosion following explosion as an organized outburst, without much doubt planned by the same groups of radicals as Iiari engineered the outrages perpetrated last month. What may turn out to be the first clews leading to identification and cap ture of the anarchists was obtained when an empty suit case discovered near the entrance to Mr. Palmer's home was found to contain a handbill signed "The Anarchistic Fighters." An identical bill was found at the scene ol the explosion in Boston. The bill served warning that a gen eral war was to be waged against leaders of society, as society is now organized. A handbill, also found near the scene of the explosion, read as follows: "The powers that be make no secret of their will to stop here in America the world-wide spread of revolution The powers that must be reckon thai they will have to accept the fight thej have provoked." Would Buy Cape Cod Canaf. Washington. ? Secretary of War Ba ker recommended to Congress the pur chase by the government of the Cape Cod Canal, at a cost of not more than $10,000,000. Improvements made to the-canal by the Railroad Administration make it inadvisable to turn it back to the own ers, the secretary said. COAST TO COAST FLIGHT.

The army will attempt within a few days to even up aerial matters with the navy, by sending a great Martin bombing airplane across the continent in two flights. The route will be from New York to San Fran cisco. Capt. Roy N. Francis, an army pilot who probably has passed more time in the air than any other air. service pilot will be the chief pilot.

Austria is required to disiiand her army, surrender her navy, demobilize her aerial forces and ac cept the covenant of the League of I Nations. The remainder of the treaty will be communicated to her plenipotentiaries "at the earliest possible moment," they were informed. It includes important clauses still being debated by the al lies. One of them is the clause con cerning the Adriatic settlement. There* is no- agreement on this issue as yet. The entire Council of Four is willing to make concessions to Germany, Pres ident Wilson apparently standing for the greatest and Premier Clemenceau for the least mo'dilicatlon of the trea ty. The allied representatives have every reason to doubt that the present Gorman delegation will sign the treaty as it now stands. Senator Cummins of Iowa suggests that the senafe pass a resolution speci fying just what changes must be made in tiie peace treaty and League of Na tion's covenant to insure ratification. The Swiss government replied nega tively to ihe allied note concerning thp blockade of Germany if Germany re fuses io sign the peace treaty. .Movements of the Greek and Italian forces along the Turkish coast of the Aegean are explained as part of the aloed program to restore order there mo protect the line of the ?

The representatives of the vanquished Austrian nation met the victors at the ceremony in the fif teenth century castle of St. Germain to appeal for grace and just and kind ly treatment. No trace of the arro gant spirit with which Count \ on Brockdorff-Ilantzau, head of the Ger man delegation, attempted at Ver sailles to arraign the allied powers as jointly responsible for the war and demanded participation in the negotia tions on equal terms marked the speech of Dr. Karl Rentier, the Aus trian chancellor, who replied to Georges Clemenceau, president of the conference. The Austrian plenipotentiary, speak- i ing in French as a concession, to his i auditors, did not seek to extenuate thej guilt of the former Austro-Hungarian , government for "the horrible crime of ; 1914." He asked only that the full weight' of the punishment should not fall sole ly on the little mountain republic, which was all that was left of the once mighty Austria, but that it be regard ed as only one of eight new republics into which the old monarchy had been divided and that it be apportioned no more 0/ the penalty than it could bear. Dr. Ilenner even went out of his way to praise the generous relief work un dertaken by the allies. The tone of his speech evidently made. a most Severa ble impression on rhe assembled plen ipotentiaries. President Wilson lis tened with the closest attention, rest ing his chin on his hand. The delegates of Poland, Czecho Slovakia and .Tugo-Slavia alone evinc ed discontent at those parts of the speech in, which t!*j Austrian chief by implication attempted to assign to them a proportionate share of repara tions. PITH OF THE VICTORY NEWS Senator Johnson of California de noynces League of Nations as "s gigantic war trust" and a product o1 "sordid bargaining, selfish interesi and secret diplomacy." He termed the so called reservation of the Mon roe Doctrine a fraud and declared il "unthinkable that any American should subscribe to Article 10." Count von Brockdorff-'Rantzau is doubtful of the reception of the Ger mah counter proposals, saying: J'WS can fight no more, but can still sa> no." Coblenz is selected as the capital of the new Rhine republic. / Missionaries are urging a Turkish mandate for the United States, the British want to keep the Sultan in Constantiopie and ihe Allied Investi gation Committee halts. The allies decline to rcccivc further notes from the German delegation in view of ihe fact that the time for counter prcposa's expired last Thursday. No modifications, except minor ones, largely of phraseology, will be .made in the Girma.-. treaty.

FiGHT ON UBBlh Feels That He Has Been Failure and Looks With Favor on Coming of Gen. Angeles. 1 Washington. ? The failure at Car ranza to cope successfully with thq . rebel factions in Mexico, though warn* sd by this government last fall that Villa was getting reat'y for an am bitious military move tliis summer, ivas declared in diplomatic circles here to spell the speedy end of the present government of the southern republic and tacit approval by the United States government of the Angeles ret gime. While tlie state department Is with holding comment 011 Villa's coup d'etat until ofllcial advices have been re ceived from the border as to the ex tent of the military operations out* lined by the Angeles-Villa eombina* (ion, the refusal to grant Ca rranza's request fqr the movement of troops through United Stales territory is taken to indicate that the American government has decided to decline fur* tiier co-operation with Carranza. It likewise developed that fully one half of the ammunition that the Unit' ed , States government permitted to pass into Mexico, had been com* mat ulcered by the Villa forces, largely through the inability of the Carran K.'stis to protect it. This apparent inability of the Car ranza forces to deal with the rebels, coupled with the fact that (leneral Angeles hns in the pafct been highly acceptable to this ; wenuiient, led Mexican observers to predict that the present military movement against Carranza would culminate soon in his overthrow and the establishment of a stable government. That Carranza may no longer look for sympathy from t his government was taken for grtmted. His economic and financial policy in Mexico, it was declared, has proved false; he has without compunction flouted foreign ' nations by his oil decrees, which were generally declared to lu? confiscatory, and apparently he has been under the domination of pro-German agents all during the period of the war. Since the exclusion of ^Jexico from the League of Nations, it was asserted hero* Carranza has been particularly antagonistic to the United States. On the other hand, while Villa could hardly be recognized by this govern ment, it was pointed out Angeles holds the respect and confidence of Ameri can and allied countries. VILLA DENIES COLUMBUS RAID, Carranzists Hookwink United Statcg Administration Systematically. Washington. ? A new and unexpect ed turn has been given to' the Mexican embroglio here by news that Francisco Villa is courting full investigation of the Columbus raid with a view to proving that he had nothing to do with it. Villa is forwarding alleged docu mentary proofs, a summary of which is now available here, and Is ready to come personally to the United Slates and face Investigation or trial. NC-4 NOT TO FLY HOME.
