President Wilson has determined to put
an end to the activities of Teutonic
egents in the United States.
t.v his direction, the Department of
Justice and the Secret Service are co
operating to secure the ncccsary proof
to punish the mm caur"it in projects
which endanger the prace and safety
ol the country. More important, how
ever, is the President's direction that
the search shall bo continued for those
"higher up." As soon as he Is in pos
session of all the facts. Mr. Wilson wil
lake steps to stop the pernicious ac
tivity of diplomats and Consular offi

Von 3uber Under SilHnlclon.
Ir the President carries his intention
to its conclusion, and the charges now
on file should be substantiated, it
would surprise no one should this Gov
eminent request Austria-Hungary to
recall Herr von Nuber, its Consul Gen
oral in New York.
Count von Kernstorff. the German
Ambassador, has been under suspicion
lor months, but in the absence of proof
it Is clearly impossible to take any ac
tion against him. Should the revela
tions of Dr. Goriear. recently resigned
as Austro-IIungartan Consul, bo sup
ported by evidence, then whatever dip
lomatic Consular officer is Involved
The Austrian anu German Embassies
deny the truth of Goriear's allegations,
but the Department of Justice today
had the promise of documentary evi
dence to substantiate them.
Iternun DocumrntN Received.
Tn addition the State Department has
received from the British government
the documents carried by a German
messenger. These contain a great deal
of information regarding German and
Austrian activities and supplement the
papers taken from James F. J. Archi
bald, who was familiar with the con
tents pt Dumba's dispatches. The De

any action against Archibald because
It could not obtain proof that he had
knowledge of the character of the dis

A long and exhaustive study of the
status applicable to the case of Kay,

Attorney-General Gregory, in which

FETROGRAD. Nov. 13. (Special.)
The districts of Batum and Ardaghan,
which are inhabited by Georgians who
were forced to accept the Mohammedan
religion by former conquerors, have
been the theater of fighting since the
beginning of the present war. First
the Turks invaded the territory last
inter and spring. The Russians drove
mem out later and reconquered the
country. The result of these operations
is mat the districts are in ruins.
Jn Araaghan, a region which for
merly was like a garden, only nine
villages out of 43 are left. 19 having
oeen completely and 15 partly wiped
out, while of 21,000 inhabitants only
uui nave survived, and 1000 of these
are without means of subsistence. In
the Armvin district out of 25,000 in
uaoitants only 100 remain, and they
are in complete destitution. In Mor

almost annihilated, only 60 families
surviving the passing war wave.
The sturdy mountain people are suf
fering silently and hence no help is
iorthcoming. The few survivors have
taken refuge in the mountains and the

WASHINGTON. Nov. 13. Serious
charges of misgovern ment in the Phil

of demands in the forthcoming session
of Congress for a searching investiga

The Administration is preparing to

As a result of recent revelations of
the demoralization in the Philippines
produced by Democratic rule and ef
forts to demonstrate the capacity of
the Filipinos for sclf-goternraent, the
opposition to the Jones measure will
be greatly augmented.
Several Republican members of Con
gress have been In the Philippines this
year gathering evidence of the scan
dals of misgovernment which have
been suppressed by the Administra
tion censorship. The Administration,
foreseeing the danger, has been forti
fying itself to meet the Republican
attack. General Mclntyre. chief of the
War Department Bureau of Insular Af

several months in the islands, and will
tell Congress that the Republican
charges are misrepresentations.

ALTHOUGH London refuses to share
the ' consternation which the dis

in the near future.
The Greek King's suppression of the

in London as a definite step toward

When confronted with these dis

she had secured the corpse and brought

she had found herself with her weddinst

Miss Crumley left-Atlanta about two
weeks ago for New Tork, where she
said she was to take in charge the
