Senator Reed, Missouri, an oppo

At 2 p. m. the suffrage .resolution

Washington, June 27. German dip

Sensational excerpts from Foreign
Minister Von Kuehlmann's address to
the reichstag Tuesday explaining his
remarks of Monday show that he liter

eyes. He declared that Ludendorff
should be made to answer for lsck of
German success in the war, not the

American soldiers from France "and
there are 700,000 of these troops now
He derided those militarists who said
America wouldn't enter the war, and

Former Socialist
Leader Gives Up Party
New York, Juno 27. Allan T. Ben
son, writer, socialist candidate for pre

i socialist party, ho announced today.
! Ho charges that tho party has passed
into tho control of foreign born leaders
who are devoid of Americanism and of
"an anarchistic, syndicalistic minor
ity," Benson said that the leaders he
refers to were not pro-German but .were
incapable, by reason of their birth, of
seeing the difference betwen a covet

many, fighting for conquest, and a na

the principles of freedom.

Pay Little Attention to Shells
from Long Range Gun
As They Explode
New York, June 27. ''People living
in London aud Paris do not realize the
strain they are under," said Mrs.
Bertha K. Mellctt, writer and wife of
Lowell Mellctt, United Press war cor
respondent, who arrived last night
from Paris. "Two days before I left
Paris a shell from the German long
range gun fell a couple of hundred
yards in front of me. Not having a
Gallic temperament I ran away from
and not i'.to the smoke and fumes, and
took refuge In a shop. Not a single
sales woman under the frail Inss roof
of tho establishment seemed disturbed
by the catcstropheo in the street. They
went on matching samples and measur
ing materials as calmly as though the
systematic boche could not be relied
on to forward another momento of him
self in fifteen minutes.
, "Six shells fell between noon and
half past one that day and except for
a mounting curiosity and his racial
ambition to be able to tell of being
within twenty yards of a bursting shell'
and coming away unscathed the
Frenchmen evinced no emotion.
''The big gun and the Cothas have
not made panic in Paris. Much less
have the Gothas weakened the London
er's genijs for 'carrying on.' But after
the waV, when all the new evolved
faculties of resistance against shock
which have come like supplementary
senses to the people that need them,
are left without purpose or function,
thre may be a general uneasiness such
a I felt during my first night in New
York. We may hear as much of peace
shock then as we hear of shell shock
"The absence of war conditions
comes to be the abnormal state of af
fairs to the person who has spent a
year or more under the Gothas. To
land last night and find not only un
dimmed street lamps, but unshuttered
windows, and moreover to see the un
loved moon in the sky and then to ex
perience not so much as raid warn
ing, amounted to a shock to my nerv
ous system. I understand now the
plight f the war correspondent I
know who is kept awake by the
crickets and nightingales at the chateau
where ie lives and has to get up to tlif i
front where the guns boom to get a
night' rest now and then."

Tells Friends There Are
Definite Indications of Bet
ter Things In Future i
Dramatic Appearance of Rus
sian Leader Cause of Varied
Press Comment
By Ed L. Keen
(United Press Staff Correspondent1)
London, June 27. Alexander Kflren- '
sky, Russia's "man of destiny" told
friends today there are definite indica
tions that order' will speedily be re-established
in Russia with the aid of
the allies and America, resulting in the
creation of an "east front" again.
He said it is positive that Russia- is
ready to join the allies, as soon as tho
yoke of bolshevisin is thrown off.
The dramatic and unexpected appear
ance of Alexandor Karensky at the la
bor party conference yesterday- raised
many questions concerning his future;
actions and Ms connection with the al
lied policy toward Russia, which may
lk explained in his speech befiye the
conference today. '
"I bear witnea that the Russian peo
ple will never recognize the Brost- Ll
tovsk peace treaty, which aims at th
annihilation of Russia," Kerensky de
clared in his address before the confer
ence. - i J .f '
I consider tlia bolsheviki as Ger
man pawns, Russia has lost practically
all the freedom she won through th
revolution. She has gone baik io the
same cznrdom."
The Mail says the government did not
invite Kerensky to England, bnt that
he. asked the right of asylum as a pri
vate citizen.
However," continues the Mall, "it
is wondered whether Kerensky brought '
an invitation for 'allied intervention
from the Russian moderate socialists."
It is reliubly reported that Koronsky
favors intervention by all tho allies-
even though one country furnishes most
of the troops under the slogan "Fight
ing Germany ", while not interfering
with Russia's internal affairs.
Kerensky is said to believe that al
lied intervention will unite tho present
warring factions opposed to ths bolsha-
viki nnd is reported to have intimated
that Russian military assistance is pos
sible, if it was used only in a defensive
