Vienna, June 8. Tke pearft terms presented to Austria are impossible and mean the death of the country by starvation, President eitz de clared in his address opening the extraordinary session of the national assen.bly Saturday. The galleries were filled and the floor contained a lai ge proportion of the members of the assembly, including two worsen. The session was orderly. Foreign Minister Bauer reported on nis conference at Feldkirch with Dr. Renner, head of the Austrian peart delegation. Bauer, who is not popular in Vienna, or in the country, and who is generally re ferred to as a bolshevik, was lis tened to quietly while he read six pages of manuscript. After declaring that the treaty was a peace of hate, Bauer released hi i personal vials of wrath against the Czechs, who, he said, had taken all cf Austria's sugar and other in dustries. The loss of German-Bohemia to Austria, he added, meant not merely subjection of 3,500,000 Germans - to foreign ' rule, but the lossof the nlo'St valuable parts of German-Austria, industrially and cultw ally. Tyrol Will Never Submit. Dr. Bauer declared the Tyrol would never submit to the peace t'rm and that it, as well as the Gentians of Bohemia, had the sym pathy of all Germans. He added that several months ago the Aus trian government submitted to the Ital'on government the draft of a trealy under which German South Tyrol would remain with Austria, constitutionally and economically, but as a neutral military zone. Dr. Bauer said he hoped the Italian government would not refuse to discuss- the proposal at St- Germain. He said there was danger of an irredentia movement in German South Tyrol, remarking that the German people might hope gradu ally to win the friendship of Italy, but it would be a misfortune to both if the annexation of German South Tyro, prevented this. Regarding western Hungary and the frontiers of . Carinthia and Styria, the foreign minister added, the Austrian peace delegation would propose plebescites under neutral control. Austria, he said, also must have direct communication with Italy for commercial reasons. Again Go Over Proposals. Paris, June 8.

The Council of Four, with Premier Orlando of Italy absent, again went over the proposals Sun day and, while various days have been mentioned unofficially for re plying to the Germans, no agree ment has been reached by the Coun cil. The latest belief expressed, however, is to the effect that an understanding may be arrived at the end of the week, with the possibil ity of its coming sooner. It may be significant of an early impending agreement that the depar ture of President Wilson tor the United States is reported as possible within 10 days or two weeks.

"To the men at the meeting I stated that we had to strike in self- defense because of the tactics of Postmaster General Burleson in per mitting our people to be discharged without giving any protection and giving us no chance for wage ad justment or arranging for collective bargaining. I told them my efforts in the east had been absolutely un productive and there was nothing left to do but strike." Mr. Konenkamp said everywhere the members are assuring him they will do all they can to make the strike effective.

Nicaragua has asked the United States to land forces there to cope with a threat ened invasion from Costa Rica. The state department is investigating the situation. The Nicaraguan legation here in a statement today declares that follow ing the collapse of the revolution in Costa Rica, President. Tinoco has massed large forces on the frontier. Tinoco, whose brother, as minister of war, is at the head of the Costa Rican army in the field, has charged that the Nicaraguans aided the rev olutionists. The Nicaraguans have denied the charge and cited that it was the liberal party in Nicaragua, members of the old Zelaya regime, that went over to Tinoco. Legation Issues Statement. This is the Nicaranguan legation's statement: "Notwithstanding that the revolu tion in Costa Rica, which started about one month ago, has come to an end,' that the , defeated revolu tionists who crossed the Nicaraguan border were disarmed by the fron tier patrol, that the government of Nic.T'agua has maintained strict neu trality from the beginning of the revolution and has emphatically de nied having given any aid to the revolutionists, General Tinoco has been massing a big army on the frontier of Nicaragua with large trams of ammunition and supplies of all kinds. It is known that he has in the department of Guana caste, and not far from the frontier, about 6,000 men under arms with whom he expects to invade Nicara gua or else start a revolution in that country headed by General Was, formerly premier under Zelaya; Gen erals Sediles, Santos, Baca, Usaga and other Nicaraguan generals op posed to the present government ot General Chamorro. Reconstruction Period. "Nicaragua, in accord with the financial plan suggested by the United States government, is on her reconstruction period after 17 years of the Zelaya regime. It has adapted a strictly economic budget, by which the government can have tinder arms only 500 men and has no war budget. The people of Nicaragua have no complaint at having followed the friendly sug gestion of the United States, as at the end of the last economic year there was a surplus of $500,000, and it is expected that at the end of the present year there will be a surplus of $1,000,000. "We believe that the time has ar rived when the United States, in view of the friendly attitude that Nicaragua has maintained with the United States in giving this coun try the option for building the canal through Nicaragua and for the ces sion of the two naval bases, one on the Gulf of Fonseca, and the other on the Islands or the Atlantic, and also bearing in mind that Nicaragua entered the war against Germany in harmony with the United States and to aid the allies in every way in its power, should take a hand to protect Nicaragua against her for eign foes."

MIXES MEDICINE WITH DOPE, WIFE OF DOCTOR DIES Wrong Drug May Have Been Called for, Husband, Fol lowing Another Physician's Directions, Admits Kansas City, Mo., June 8. (Spe cial.) Dr. J. H. Buckles, a Kansas side physician, making a mistake in drugs, caused the death of his wife, Mrs. Eva G. Buckles, 43 years old. at the family Jiome, 1730 South Twenty-third street. Confusion of mescal terms, whereby barium chloride, a deadly poison, was substituted for barium sulphate, a harmless drug, used in preparing a patient for an X-ray picture, brought death to the wife She was believed to be suffering from cancer of the stomach. Consulted Another Physician. Dr. Buckles consulted with Dr. W. A. Myers, 3506 Euclid avenue, this city, on the advisability" of an X-ray picture being taken. Dr. Myers says he directed the husband to purchase some barium sulphate and give it to his wife in buttermilk six hours before the photograph was to be taken. "I did not think it necessary to give a prescription to Dr. Buckles, as he was a physician," said Dr. Myers. Inr'tead oi purchasing the drug that day, Dr. Buckles waited a day before going to a Kansas City drug house. "I am not positive what I asked for, chloride or sulphate," he said after his wife's death. "But I re ceived chloride." Wife Said Taste Was Different. Previously he had given his wife some of . the sulphate. She spoke of the difference in taste when he administered the chloride, mixed, one-half ounce in 16 ounces of but termilk. "This medicine does not taste like the other," Dr. Buckles says she told him. He tasted it and agreed. Shortly afterwards Mrs. Buckles be came violently ill. Dr. Buckles telephoned Dr. Myers and asked him what drug it was he had told him to get for his wife. "Barium sulphate," Dr. Myers says he replied. "All right," Dr. Buckles said and rang off. Called Another Doctor. Dr. D. M. Smith. 1409 South Twenty-sixth street, Kansas side, re ceived a phone call from Dr. Buckles shortly afterward.

In Justice To Community, Ringer Should Be Removed Declares. World-Herald For three months or more The Bee, in its duty to the public as a newspaper that publishes the news without fear or favor, has been exposing the stupidity and inefficiency of the police department under Commissioner of Police Ringer and Chief of Police Eberstein. First it exposed and forced the police to discontinue the practice of extorting "blood money" from women of the street in connection with the Detention Home. Next The Bee exposed the drug traffic ring, which operated in Omaha under police protection and secured 15 indictments by the Federal grand jury. Then came the shameful shooting down of a soldier by a detective, vhom Commissioner Ringer and Chief Eberstein used all their power to protect, despite the fact there were dozens of witnesses ready to testify, and did make affidavits for The Bee, to the effect that the shooting was without the least justification. Brown Case Too Much. Only recently it exposed the gang of Patterson show gamblers, who ran open gambling games on the show grounds under police protection, James Patterson, owner of the shows later admitting that his manager had "fixed ft with the police" and he naturally expected protection. Then last week came the drowning of the four children at Riverview park, through lack of police protection, and the arrest with out a warrant, and cruel treatment of Mrs. Thomas Brown, 508 North Twenty-first street, on a charge of running a dis orderly house. A! For a time other Omaha newspapers accepted the "ex planation" of the police heads and were inclined to excuse and stand by the present police administration. But the Brown case proved too much, especially when Commissioner Ringer and Chief Eberstein attempted to justi fy the arrest of thi3 church woman. The following editorials, which speak for themselves, appeared in the World-Herald and The News Sunday morning: World-Herald Editorial TJME TO CALL A HALT. The police power of Omaha, as exercised and abused under the administration of Superintendent Ringer and Chief Eberstein, has become both a menace and a disgrace to the city. The time has come when, for the protection of the com munity, the city commissioners should transfer J. Dean Ringer to some other department and install a competent man in his stead. If they refuse to take this plainly indicated action, then the people of Omaha, under the power of the recall, should oust Mr. Ringer frofff office, and with him those commissioners who are responsible for perpetuating his administration. The police entry without warrant of the home of Mrs. Thomas Brown, at 2 o'clock in the morning, was an un mitigated and indefensible outrage- The forcing her to dress in the presence of a policemen, the taking her to jail and imprisoning her without bond, all because some person had told a pair of police bullies that she was the owner of a house i ot the house in which she lived and was arrested alleged to be used for immoral purposes, was an abuse of police power against which all citizens who love justice and law should register such a protest as will be a warning to all suc ceeding police administrations. Her soldier son, who threw the policeman out of his mother's bedroom, and was arrested for doing it, would ' have been within his legal and moral rights, this newspaper believes, if he had shot and killed the lawless assailants of hi3 mother's privacy, modesty and honor. If all the circumstances and charges the police allege were true, and . proved to be true, the police action in this case would be no less outrageous. The police, no less than the-humblest and meanest citizen, are subject to the govern ment of law. The law provides a proper and adequate course of procedure for the punishment of such an offense as that alleged against Mrs. Brown. There is no color of law, no vestige of police power, to justify the entry, without legal warrant, of her home at night, her humiliating arrest and subsequent procedure. Police lawlessness is more odious and more dangerous than lawlessness in any other form. It is worse than mob law, for it makes the whole community, through its duly constituted officers, party to the crime. We mention the Brown only the culmination of a long series of police abuses and police tyranny under the administration of Superintendent Ringer. Conditions have reached such a stage that no citi zen of the community rests secure in his rights. No man'3 home is any longer his castle. No man's property is any longer sacred against' police seizure. No woman's modesty is any longer safe against police brutality. The time has come to calj a halt, and the World-Herald hopes that either the city government or in it3 default the aroused citizenry of Omaha will call that halt promptly and effectively. Editorial In, the News POLICE AUTOCRACY. The public will expect Commissioner Ringer to promptly and emphatically discountenance such outrageous, autocratic and unlawful conduct as was displayed by the police in con nection with the arrest of Mrs. Thomas Brown. The apparent facts are than a mere statement made that the building was owned by entered Mrs. Brown s place of out of bed and forced her to dress in the presence of one of them, took her to the police station and refused to allow her to communicate with her friends. Such procedure was not an outrageous assumption of That Mrs. Brown is a woman of excellent reputation (Continued on rfe Two, Column Two.) instance prominently, but it is, these: Upon no more grounds by a woman arrested in a raid Mrs. Brown, three policemen residence next door, got her only entirely illegal, but was autocracy. ROY KELLY WALKING STREETS FREE MAN Protection of Bootlegger by Police Put Commissioner in Very Embarrass ing Position. The latest development in the Mrs. Brown case is: Police Commissioner Dean Ring er's failure to' explain his false statement when he said Roy Kelly had been re-arrested. Roy Kelly is the man who boasts that he is a bootlegger and operated with police protection. Roy Kelly is the man. who, ac cording to witnesses, Mr. Ringc" and Chief Eberstein have refused to question, framed with Detectives Herdzina and Armstrong to arrest the occupants of the house at 2106 Cass street to save himself and the woman with whom he was living as his wife. It was following this raid that Mrs. Thomas Brown was arrested at 1:30 o'clock in the morning, thrown in jail and carried from her cell after eight hours in an uncon scious condition on a stretcher tn a hospital. The only . charge against her was that she was the owner of the house raided. She was arrested without a warrant and then denied bond. i Framed Arrests, Charge. Roy Kelly is the man who is al leged to have watched the house with Detectives Herdzina and Arm strong until all of the roomers had returned for the night, and then planted a bottle of whisky in a room a few minutes before the detectives entered and made the arrests. Roy Kelly yesterday was seen walking the streets of Council Bluffs. The Council Bluffs police vhave not been requested to apprehend Roy Kelly, who was arrested in a room at the Cass street residence and later allowed to escape by Herd zina and Armstrong. The only efforts to rearrest Kelly, according to the members of the po lice department, have been made by Herdzina and Armstrong, who were told by Detective Chief Dunil to pick th man up. Boasts of Protection. Kelly has been heard to boast that the police were afraid to pick him up, because he "had ifon them." He made the open state ment that he was paying for pro tection and did not fear arrest. In a signed statement issued Saturday night Police Commis sioner Ringer declared "Kelly, who tested and will be prosecuted." J . Capt. Heitfeld, in charge of the police station, said that if Kelly had been arrested he did not know any thing about it. "There is no record of the ar rest on the books," said the captain. Sunday, Commissioner Ringer was asked to reconcile his own statement and that of Capt. Heit feld.' "Will you please tell us your source of information?" he was asked. "Who told you Kelly had teen arrested after he was allowed to escape by Herdzina and Arm strong?" ' "An officer told me that Kelly had been arrested," was Mr. Ring er's reply. wnat is the name of tha officer?" "I don't know. T can't remember who told me," Mr. Ringer confessed.
