ROW OVER FOREIGN OFFICE Relchtag Majority to Demand That Michael is Aooept Their Statement of Peace Terms. Copenhagen, July 18.—The new chancellor, Dr. Miohaelis, is described in special despatches from Berlin as working night and day on his program speech and the selection of new material for the Prussian imperial administration, The Lokal Anzelger says the changes have been completed and the Chan cellor will appear in the reichstag accompanied by afll his new colleagues. The Tageblatt says Herr Michaelis is reticent on his policy. The reichstag is expected to adjourn on Friday until September, first voting the war credits almost unanimously. (Despatches said Dr. Michaelia would make his maiden speech on Thursday.) A depatch from Berlin says the majority "bloc" plans to present peace terms in a resolution to the reichstag on Thursday and to demand from Dr Michaelis a statement that he accept It In principle, otherwise co-operation Is Impossible. Meanwhile the execu tion of this plan depends upon the extent to which the "bloc" holds to gether. A late edition of the Lokal Anzeige asserts that the new chancellor Is fo the foreign policy and peace terms ex pounded by tFleld Marshal von Hinden burg and the pan-German camp. I quotes conservative and national lib eral members of the reichstag who at tended a conference with von Hinden burg, General von Ludendorff, firs Quartermaster General, and Dr. Mi ohaelis as being most favorably im pressed with'the' results. The Lokal Anzelger asserts of its own knowledge that Dr. Mlchaeilis al ready has established relations of ab solute unanimity and co-operation with these military-political chieftains. Th newspaper strongly recommends to D? Michaelis and parliament the postpone ment until the end of the war of th settlement of all contentious Interna questions, including, naturally, Prus sian suffrage reform, therebv properl rebuking what it terms impertinent in terferernce from enemy countries in tho internal German affairs and demonstrating the harmonious unity of the country. The selection of a successor to the foreign secretary, Dr. Alfred Zimmer- inann, is stiill unsettled. Pressure Is being brought from two directions to block the proposed nomination of Count Bi'ockdorff-Rantzau, the German minister at Copenhagen, and to substitute Admiral von Hintze, minister to Norway, or Count von Bernstorff, former ambassador to Washington.

Several Are Killed In Anti-Government Demonstrations in Petrograd—Mobs Fired on Each Other. Petrograd, July 18.—Three members of the cabinet have resigned. A spe' clal session of the council of ministers has been convoked in an effort to avert a crisis. Two demonstrations against the government resulted in the firing of shots in the Nevsky Prospekt at midnight Sunday. A number of persons were killed or wounded. The firing apparently was the result of stray shots which brought on a panic, in which the demonstrators turned rifles and machine guns on each other.

The resignations of these cadet ministers followed a sharp disagreement over questions Involving the Ukraine, an extensive region In Russia, embracing part of the territories of the old kingdom of Poland. Prince Lvoff, the premier, has re quested the ministers to meet at his private residence when tbe cause of the dispute will be considered. It is known he will attempt to prevail on them to withdraw their resignations. The split ip the ministry occurred at a conference called to consider a report submitted by M. Tereschtenko, minister of foreign affairs, and M. Tseretelli, minister of posts and telegraphs, as a result of their negotiations concerning the Ukrainians. The cadet ministers took exception to the form of a declaration drawn up by Mm. Tereschtenko and Tsereteili. They asserted that these ministers, without authorization, took It on them selves to commit the government to a definite policy regarding the Ukraine. They also criticised the text of the Ukraine declaration,'first, because it abaMshes all power of the temporary government in the Ukraine; second, because' it did territories the Ukraine consists 01 make clear how it shall be governed In order to maintain the combative unity of the army, the government wll not countenance measures which might DROPS ALL WORK TO BUILD U, S, SHIPS er auiDaiuauur lu "-»"««* » • clty .

The emperor is said to favor von Hintze. The Tageblatt, the Mittags Zeitung and the Socialist organ Vorwaerts unite in declaring that the candidacy of Admiral von Hintze for foreign minister is a move of the super-annexationists.

Sun Plant to Devote All Time to Government, Philadelphia, July 18.—With a capacity of producing one 10,000-ton ship a month, the Sun Shipbuilding company, with its great plant on the Delaware river, at Chester, is preparing to devote alii its energies to the government in its gigantic shipbuilding program. One of the world's newest and most modern shipyards, equipped with the most up-to-date shops, with facilities unequalled and with one of the finest and most-efficiently laid out fabricating shops in the country, this plant, still in its infancy, is bound to play a vital part in the construction of these vessels so badJy needed by the government at this time. Although having on hand many private contracts, some for the Standard Oil company, work on them has been practically stopped and the construction on government vessels started. These government contracts were received only a short time ago. The Sun company has six shlpwaya at its plant along the Delaware. On these two cargo boats and two tankers are being built at this time.

( Washington, July 18.—Graft in war contracts was the main feature in the debate on the food control bill. Senator Kenyon read statements made by Representative Good, of Iowa, in a speech in Iowa regarding sboe contracts arranged for by the advisory commission of the council of national defense. Mr. Good was quoted ae gaying that a Boston firm, of which J. F. Mcllvaine, chairman of the commission's shoe committee, is a member, had been awarded contracts to furnish 100,000 pairs of army shoes at $5.17 a pair, or fifteen cents more than the lowest bidder not represented on the shoe committee, an-d that other big manufacturers on the committee made similar contracts and profits. Other statements of Representative Good were to the effect that Chairman Fitzgerald, of the flumiber committee, had bought lumber at from $1 to $5 per thousand feet lower from lumbei men not represented on the committee than from companies having representation. Senator Wadsworth, of New York suggested as to the contracts that speed of delivery had been a factor in the awards and prices. Senator Kenyon said he thought the pending bill sho-uld make adequate provision against members of the advisory committee selling their own products to the government improperly and doubted whether the pending compromise amendment of Senatoi Pomerene would accomplish the ends sought.
