King Albert made his entry into Antwerp yes terday. His progress into and about iVi. was enthusiastically cheered 4V" "- everywhere. A te 'deum at the cathedral was attended by the king, who afterward rode in an automobile to the va rious sections of the town. He left at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The citizens of Antwerp gave up the day to rejoicing over their lib eration and the return 01 men monarch. Brussels Celebrates. Brussels, Sunday, Nov. 17 Huge crowds thronged the streets of Brus sels this morning, the last detach m.n n( Herman trooos havinjr left h ranital rlurine the night. Acting Burgonmaster Le Monier's proclamation lnvumg mc ycupit iu prepare a welcome for the victorious troops and the Belgian king and queen was placarded tnrougnoui mt city. The streets were profusely beflagged with the Belgian and , allied colors. The first troops to arrive were greeted with intense enthusiasm. The ceremony proclaiming the liberation of Brussels was perform ed in the Grand Place at 10 o'clock. The square was packed with people and former prisoners while the win dows and balconies were crowded with onlookers. Newsboys were shouting the names of newspapers which had been suppressed by the Germans and which reappeared to day. Liberation Announced. Burgonmaster Le Monier, herald ed by a fanfare of trumpets, appear ed at the Leon staircase, accom panied by an alderman, and an nounced the liberation of the capi tal. His speech was continually in terrupted by cheers from the crowd which swore that the murders and robberies committed by the Ger mans never would be forgotten. The Belgian flag was then raised over the Hotel De Ville while the great mass of people in the square waved the national colors. The Brabanconne was then sung and this was followed by the anthems of the allies. The excitement of the people reached its zenith when a procession was formed. It was headed by an old banner of the revolution in 1830, a symbol of Belgian liberty. The procession, ever growing larger, marched to the Place Des Martyrs, where there is a monu ment to the heroes of the revolution of 1830. Here Burgonmaster Le Monier made a oatriotic soeech. All day long the streets were thronged with immense enthusias tic crowds. ARMTOFHl'S IS MARCHING TOWARD EAST (Continued From Pace One.) vik losses in killed, wounded and captured being at least five times that of the allies. , Huns Occupy Minsk. London, Nov. 20. A Stockholm dispatch to the Central News says German troops have occupied Minsk, in Lithuania. A half million released war prisoners, the dispatch adds, are passing through the Ural mountains. Arrangements are being made to supply them with food and clothing. Path Opened Into Russia. Washington, Nov. 20. Overthrow of the bolshevik regime in the Ukraine and the capture of Kiev by Cossack troops friendly to the all Russian government, as reported to day from CoDenhairen. onpns thr way in the opinion of officials here for ' important developments in Russia. While no change in policy, either political or military, has been made by the United States, it is realized here that the holding of the Ukraine by forces friendly to the associated governments and de cidedly hostile to the bolsheviki opens a path directly into the heart ot Russia, enner tor the dispatch of troops or of supplies for the re lief of the demoralized civilian popu lation. Possibilities that the bolshevik leaders may flee Russia after ac cumulating larger amounts of loot have been touched upon in recent dispatches, but have been dis counted here largely because no haven for them appears available. Switzerland has forcibly ejected their representatives, Holland has declared they are not wanted there and even Germany now is not ex pected to tolerate them within its borders.' Despite the resistance they are of fering in the north, it is believed in some quarters here that the strength of the bolsheviki is waning. With the Cossacks holding the Ukraine: with the military and po litical forces of the Omsk govern ment working west and with the Am.ririn anrl allied fnrrpc nnshincr IUUVIIV.1I " ' I w. w J- O south, some officials consider the position of the disturbers ot Kus aia- oeace has become serious. How ever, no immediate collapse of the OoisneviK regime is ucucvcu uuu nent October Shipping Losses Amount to 93,000 Tons Knv. 20. fVia Mon treat) Allied and neutral shipping losses in October totaled vj.uuu tons, the British admiralty announces The British losses amounted to 84, Sailings of steamships exceeding 500 tons between the United King dom and overseas ports, excluding cross channel trafhc, exceeded , 500,000 tons ia October. FIRST HUN SUBS ARE YIELDED TO THE ALLIES (Continued From Face One.) length. Its number had been paint ed out. Near the ship Wash lightship three large British seaplanes fol lowed by an airship, were observed. The Harwich forces and the sea planes and airship made a most im pressive sight. One of the submarines was seen to send up a couple of carrier pig eons and at once a signal was fash ed from the admiral that it had no right to do this. When the ships had cleared the mine field and entered the war chan nel the "Paravanes" were hauled abroad. On reaching a point some 20 miles off Harwich the ships drop ped anchor and Captain Addison came out on the warship Maidstone. British Crews Put Abroad. British srews were then put pn board the submarines to take thtm into harbor. With the exception of the engine staffs all the Grman sailors remained on deck. The sub marines were then taken through the gates of the harbor and the Ger man crews were transferred to the transports which will take them back to Germany. As the boats went through the gates the white insignia was run up on each of them with the Ger man flag underneath. Each German submarine com mander at the transfer was requir ed to sign a declaration to the effect that his vessel was in running order, that its periscope was intact, that its torpedoes were unloaded and that its torpedo heads were sate. Orders had been issued forbidding any demonstration and these instruc tions were obeyed to the letter. There was complete silence as the submarines surrendered and as the crews were transferred. So ended an historic event and the first por tion of the German submarine fleets now is the hands of the British navy. Potash Producers Allege Conspiracy of Fertilizer Men Washington, Nov. 20. (Special.) A number of potash producers of Nebraska, including W. E. Sharp, W. E. Richardson. T. E. Stevens, John Kraus, H. W. Lamb and Prof. G. E. Condra, are in Washington to interest the War Industries board in their output. They are of the opin ion that a conspiracy exists on the part of the fertilizer manufacturers to keep potash prices down, and asi a result Nebraska potash is piling up m warehouses to such an extent that Nebraska producers are be coming alarmed. Senator Hitchcock has arranged for a conference with Chairman Ber nard Barouch of the War Industries board tomorrow afternoon, when the Nebraska situation will be presented. Switzerland Bars Out Oantral Powers' Soldiers Beriie, Switzerland, Nov. 20. There are in Switzerland 16,000 in terned prisoners of French, British and Belgian nationality, who now will be repatriated, while 14,000 Germans still remain on Swiss soil. The government has ordered the frontier closed to troops of the cen tral powers because of the danger of admitting men infected with bol shevism or- anaroiism. A recuperative diet in influents. Hor lick'i Malted Milk, very digestible. Adv. Secretary Tumulty's Father Dies at His Home in Jersey Jersey City, N. J., Nov. 20. Phil ip Tumulty, father of Joseph P. Tu multy, secretary to President Wil son, died at his home here today, after an illness of several days. BOLSHEVISM IS GAINING SWAY IN GERMAHOWNS Government Plan Rejected by Berlin Council, Which De mands Soldiers and Workmen's Congress. Amsterdam, Nov. 20. The elec tions in Germany for a constituent assembly have been fixed for Feb ruary 2, according to a Berlin dis patch. London, Nov. 20. The Berlin sol diers' and workmen's council at a lively meeting has passed a resolu tion against the summoning of a constituent assembly, says an Ex change Telegraph dispatch from Copenhagen. The resolution, how ever, demands the summoning of a general soldiers' and workmen's congress, "in order to take a de cision as to the future of Germany." Chancellor Ebert and other mod erates, the advices add, desperately tried to change the opinion of the council, but the extreme elements appeared to be in the great majority. etc REJOICES WILDLY ON DAY OF 111 ERATON (Continued From Pafe One.) Former Emperor William II was .still left to figure grotesquely as a stafcie on the facade of the cathed ral. The hands had been chained during the night and into them had been put a band with this inscrip tion: "Sic transit gloria mundi." On the other hand, flags were flying from the stautes of French heroes still standing in Metz. Mar shal Petain made his triumphal en try together with a staff of allied officers at the head of the famous Iron division, the Thirty-ninth di vision of the Twentieth army corps. Following was a long procession of Lorraine societies and other groups, including a great number of girls in the national costume of Lor raine. This procession met the marshal at the Port de France and conducted him in triumph to tht Es planade, where, surrounded by a re markable group of generals, he re viewed the troops that had earned the honor of contributing to the vic tories of the allies on almost every battlefield of France. The day was one of notable en thusiasm throughout, which dusk failed to diminish. Bands with torches appeared as soon as the light began to fade and jubilant proces sions continued gaily to circulate through the town and until a late hour. Meanwhile, from the French lines all around the fortress there was a brilliant display of fireworks, which brightly lighted the sky, sig nal fuses and star shells serving as skyrockets. Germans who still remain here tried to put a good countenance on the situation and join the throngs out of doors, but their glum faces were mostly seen from open win dows, peering out with curiosity mingled with interest. Those that were met within the crowd were treated with consideration. Priorities Canceled. Washington, Nov. 20. Formal concellation of all priority ratings of the War Industries board except those for the navy, the emergency fleet corporation, railroads and tele phone and telegraph companies, was announced today by Priorities Com missioner Parker. PLANS ARE MADE FOR WILSON'S TRIP TO FRANCE j (Continued From Pace One.) the Atlantic on a big passenger liner now in use by the government as a transport. A dreadnaught and a flotilla of destroyers probably will be convoy. Versailles Preparing. Paris, Nov. 20. The city of Ver sailles is preparing to receive the delegates to the peace conference. The deliberation are expected to be held in the Grand Tranon part of the chateau of Versailles onre occupied by Marie Antoinette. The priceless tapestries and furni ture, removed to a place of safety during the course of hostilities, are now being replaced. The gardens are being restored and the camou flage covering on the statues and fountains removed. The waters of the Grand canal, which also had been camouflaged in order to avert airplane raids, are being restored to their natural con dition. "The Hall of Mirrors," where William I. proclaimed the German empire and where the peace treaty" doubtless will be signed, is one of the first places to be made ready to receive the pleni potentiaries. M. De Nolhac, con servator of the palace, is in charge of the preparations. It is a general belief that the coun tries to be represented will include all which declared war against the central powers and those states which were formed as a result of the war, the Czecho-Slovaks and Jugo slavs. Two Treaties Forecast. These are among the practical de tails likely to be adjusted before the sessions are opened. Afte the adjustment among the allies, it is probable that the representatives of the central powers will be called in for the arrangement of prelimi naries. It is expected that all the central powers will be represent -d, for while armistices were separately signed with Germany, Austria, Bulgaria and Turkey, it is not antic ipated that separate congresses will be necessary. It is believed the conclusions will be embodied in two treaties, the first one to be concluded early, covering the essentials, and the second cov ering the larger general questions, after a more thorough discussion. Former Nebraska Boy Celebrates Birthday Mark Morton of Wheaton, 111., son of the late J. Sterling Morton, was born 60 years ago today in the Herndon House; Ninth and Farnam streets. .

Huh? , But as for forgetting you no I never, never will. I shall always think of you as a brother." Sure She Wrote Letter. Mrs. Pearce testified that she did not know whether her husband mailed the letter, but she was posi tive that she wrote it for the pur pose of touching his heart and in such terms that Pearce could not send it to Stone. The letter was dated seven months after the marriage of the Pcarces and fiive months beforet the birth of their son, who will be two years old next month. Other letters offered in evidence by Fearce, who is resisting his wife's efforts to obtain a divorce, were dated lat spring and written by Mrs. Pearce to her husband while she was visiting her parents in Fair field, Neb. In these letters the wife hoped that upon her return to Oma ha Pearce would have a little home for them away from his mother, whom Mrs. Pearce alleges caused the trouble between them. "For you will never find a better woman to you, or one that could think as much of vou as I do," she wrote. "Just a little home for $10 or $12 per month is not so bad and then the furniture would be ours." Nice to Get a Meal. "It seems so nice to get a meal for yourself once more," she wrote, referring to a v,i ci, tor her parents during the visit back r i ine,DaDv- Uunng the hearing vcncsaay atternoon she stated that Pearce required her to board with his parents at 5305 South Thirty-eighth street, Omaha.

She testified that they took separate homesteads near Opal, S. D., shortly after their mar riage; that Pearce required her to ride horses after cattle while she was an expectant mother, that he struck .i and on one occasion threatened her with a revolver. She related that on various occasions she tuckea her head beneath a pil low and cried after her husband beat her. Mule Figures in Suit. Attorney Murphy injected a pet mule and the "beautiful hills of South Dakota" into the proceedings, but Mrs. Pearce did not lend her self to that situation further than to say that she rode the mule once or twice, and then turned it over to her husband. "I loved Pearce until he told me that he -ould not take me to live in any place except at bis mother's house, Mrs, Pearce testified. She was born in Clay county and her family name is Jiasterson. The only entertainment she en joyed in South Dakota was driving cattle, going to the grocery store and to the postoffice, she stated. Since returning to Omaha she tes tified that she has worked in a packing house and as a telephone operator.
