"The elTect of the Stevens bill, now

"It is only the nationally advertised
articles that are sold at cut prices, and

It enables the seller to dispose of in

BULK FOILS JAIL DELIVERY
Fat Xcgro Becomes Wedged In and
Ksciipc Is Blocked.
GKORGKTOWN, Del.. May 15. Sher
iff Jacob West, of Georgetown, here
after may be written large as one who
loves a fat man, for it was Harold
Green, a negro of pronounced avoirdu
pois, who prevented early this morning
a general delivery of 11 prisoners at
Sussex County Jail by becoming se
curely wedged in a hole burrowed un
der tho door.
Green's imprisoned bulk held the re
malner of the inmates back, and the
Sheriff, responding to Green's fright
ened calls for help, found them, all
save one, cursing the negro for a bun
gler. Fred Allen, one of several yeggs con.
fined in the jail, who engineered the
break, made good his escape, but was
captured a few hours later by Walter
Hearn, a farmer, eight miles from here,
who had been notified by telephone.
The fugitive was taken at the muzzle
o'f a shotgun.
The attempt to escape was made
shortly before 3 A. M. The men allJ
had been confined in a steel cell. Allen
wrenched from his cot a piece of iron,
with which he boke the cell door lock.
Once in the corridor, he pried up a
piece of the board floor and climbed
down into the cookroom.
At the main door he pried up a board
and soon had dug a hole calculated to
permit the escape of himself and his
fellow prisoners. Calling to the others
that the coast was clear the Sheriff
lived on the upper floor of the jail
Allen wriggled through to the court
yard and scaled the wall.
Green next essayed the brick-lined
lane to liberty. Half way through he
jammed. The more hev wriggled for
ward the tighter wedged became the
form of the black. Behind the other pris
oners took turns at pushing, pulling
and cursing, but the negro simply
couldn't be budged.
"Lawdy! Lawdy!" shouted Green.
"Quit dat shovin'. Can't youall see
Ah's swellin' up?" And his black face
waxed even blacker as his breath came
in suffocating gasps.
By now Green was a tnoroughly
frightened nogro, and he shouted fran
tically for help. This brought the Sher
iff out of bed with a jump. Herding the
prisoners behind Green into a cell at
the point of a revolver, the Sheriff pro
ceeded to extricate Green.

Willi l'ormcr Allies Alienated by
Karly Neutrality, Italians liec
ognize Necessity for Assum-
itig Actiie Policy.
BT JOHN- CALLA.V O'LAUGHLIX.
WASHINGTON, May 22. (Special.)
Italy's decision to stand by the allies In
the great world war has resulted in the
revelation of the terms of the secret
treaty which she had for so many years
with Germany and Austria-Hungary.
That treaty had two prime purposes
the maintenance of the equilibrium In
Europe and the maintenance of the
equilibrium in the Balkan states. It
was a purely defensive instrument. By
its terms it forbade a signatory power
from taking any important Ptep which
might disturb the peace of Kurope,
without previous' consultation with its
allies. In case of any move in the
Balkans and consequent Increase of in
fluence or interests therein, the power
acting bound itself to give compensa
tion to the others.
Treaty Ignored by Vienna.
Knowledge of these principal points
of the treaty of tho triple alliance,
which Italy denounced some days ago,
is necessary in order to understand the
course pursued by the Rome govern
ment. To the astonishment of the Ital
ian statesmen, Austria-Hungary failed
to notify Rome that it had In contem
plation the dispatch of an ultimatum
to Serbia concerning the assassination
of the Austrian Crown Prince. In
other words, Vienna failed to carry out
that provision of the treaty which
called for prior consultation of all Im
Subsequently, when Italy called at
tention to this failure, the Austrian
government replied that it did not be
lieve the peace of Kurope would be dis
turbed, and that consequently the mat
ter was not one for discussion with its
allies. Italy then questioned Germany,
which declared that it knew nothing
whatsoever about the Austrian ulti
matum until it was presented. When
all these official papers became public,
Italy convinced herself that Germany
did have full and complete knowledge
of Austria's purposes and acts and had
backed them up.
War Forced, Italians lfold.
Iu other words, from the Italian
point of view, the war was forced by
Germany and Austria. The treaty did
not bind Italy to act with those two
countries in any contingency save that
of attack by other nations. So, regard
ing Germany and Austria as the ag
gressors, Italy felt that she was free
from giving them armed assistance.
It is the firm belief of the Italian
government that Austria did not mere
ly intend to punish Serbia and with
draw, but that she intended to remain
in occupation of Serbian territory. This
belief has answer from the conduct of
Austria in the past and her course
since the war began. Such occupation
of course would have disturbed the
equilibrium in the Balkans and would
entitle Italy to compensation. At first
Vienna declined to consider the appli
cation of the treaty. Through the in
tervention of Germany and this fact
is looked upon by Italians as proof of
the justice of their claim to compen
sation Austria made various propos
als, which Italy declined to consider
because she regarded them as not made
in good faith.
Destiny In Mediterranean at Stake.
Therefore, according to the Italian
officials, the treaty of alliance had
been violated by Austria and Germany
i nail its essential provisions. Its de
nunciation followed this conclusion.
Because she held that Germany and
Austria-Hungary were the aggressors,
Italy issued a proclamation of neu
trality at the beginning of the war. In
doing so she alienated from herself th
support of those countries in case of
attack by the allies. Italy recognized
that her position as a Mediterranean
power and as the controller of the oes
tiny of the Adriatic Sea was at stake.
She realized that for her it hau be
come not merely a question of possible
increase of territory, but of national
When the peace congress shall as
semble the victorious powers will re
cast the map of Kurope. As an out
sider Italy would receive no oonsider.-i'
lion In the Balkans or in the Mediter
ranean. As the aide of Germany and
Austria she would have been despoiled
of all her African possessions. Br
easting in her fortunes with the allies
she will retain these possessions and if
Germany and Austria should be defeated
she will gain from the latter the old
Italian provinces and also have a great
deal to say in the Balkans and in con
nection with the division of Turkey.

theory that Clark, with Daniel B.
