:4, Vn ft GERMANY TO BE GRANTED MORE IE TOm u-i '-i of Terms Will Not Make Them Lighter 'lw, But Easier. ADMISSION TO LEAGUE OF NATIONS WAITS 7 'limiwy Show Inclination to Fulfill Pum Obligations Be ing Taken Into World American Delegates Doubt General Demand Per Repubiio of Rhineland Treaty 8tatua. Austria's attitude toward the peace terms presented the representatives at fit Germain on Monday has not been officially made known to the allies. Advices from Vienna, however, carry of official dissatisfaction with their provisions and a chorus of newspaper disapprobation. There are indications, nevertheless, that the people as a whole are somewhat lethargic. Completion of Austrian treaty, several which were missing In the Monday presentation, is not likely to occur this week, altho the peace conference leadens are giving- daily attention to the. matter. The missing it is stated, are itkely to toe transmitted to the Austrian representatives by as they become completed. Modifications in the terms of peace with Germany eeem to be approaching deliAite form, according to advices from Paris. These alterations, it is said, are not planned primarily to make the terms lighter for the bat to render them easier of execution. Apparently there is a disposition on the pa(t of President Wilson, Premier Clemenceau and Premier to fix a definite sum as the ajoount of indemnity Germany shall he called upon to pay, and thaj the Qrsi in- may not -afire to tie paid within, two now iHfiia'Kt 8ut wlthlii'fotlfr years. The terms relative to Slleftia and the Saar regions, too, may be altered. There seems, however, to be a general agreement that Germany will not be permitted to enter the of nations at once. Premier Orlando is standing aloof from these discussions, as Italyjs interest is not so much in thie German as in the Austaian treaty. The establishment of the Rhenish republic by the people of the Rhineland providence of Germany is not looked upon seriously in American circles at the peace conference, it is said. It is pointed out that no I prominent men in the Rhineland are identified with the movement, and' there is some doubt as to the general demand for such a republic. President Wilson is likely to go to Brussels next week on his deferred visit to Belgium, but the specific date is indefinite. There is no intimation as to the date he plans to jHUl for America, altho his. ship, the George Washington, has beiui ordered to be ready on twelve hours notice after midnight Jugo-Slav forces, which are Invading the province of Carinthia, are reported to be advancing, the tillage of Volkermarkt, northeast of Klagenfurt, having been evacuated by the Austrian troops defending It. The reported capture of Fetrograd, which was announced early this week in a telegram from Copenhagen, seems to be without- foundation. Esthonlan forces are a considerable distance west of the foriher Russian capital, and are being subjected to Ijeavy attacks by the £ver a wide front.

Wilkes Barre, June to 100 mine workers were killed and many'others injured at the more No. 2 tuniiel of the Delaware tt Hudson Company near here early today, when a car of black powder attached to a train of cars on which the miners were riding to their chambers In the mine exploded. An electric motojc drew the cars and a broken trolley wite ignited the powder. The accident occurred shortly before 7 o'clock. A train of empty cars was sent to the mouth of the tunnel to take the men to the chambers. More than 100 men piled Into the cars. Near the end of the train was the. car of Fire Cause of Fatalities.

When rescuers reached the tunnel there were dead and dying bodies scattered everywhere. The injured were rapidly removed and sent to hospitals as soon as ambulances could be provided, while the dead were brought out and placed in tiers on the train. Bodies Mutilated. Identification of the bodies is almost impossible, many of them were charred almost beyond recognition. The limbs of some and the heads of others are missing. Many of the injured'lived but a short time, and hundreds of women, men and children gathered About the tunnel, shrieking and crying as they lifted the blankets from the bodies in their efforts to identify relatives. Accident Due to Law Violation! Today's accident is said to be the result of a direct violation of the state Permission, was given the men to ride to their place of work and the social train was provided for that purpose. On the car of the special train special seats were built for the miners. It Is a violation of the state mine law. to carry powrfer on such a train. The law is specific that powder and other explosives must be transported alone. Mino officials and state workers were on the scene promptly, but their efforts were directed solely to the work of rescue. There were enough men to meet all of the work inside the mine, but chief trouble during the early hours was in getting nurses, doctors and supplies. Burning Bodies Brought Out, Some of the first bodies brought from' the tunnels were burning when they reached the surface. Clothes had been burned away and the flesh was roasting from the Intense heat. Water was poured on these to put out vthe fire. At 10:30 o'clock the Company officials announced that seventy-one pi en were dead and thirty-live were In hospitals. It was stated that tlftT death list would increase. Company employes stater that there is a "pull" of 186.000 cubic feet of air per minute in the tunnel and that the air pulled in the flames directly over the men. Along the side of the there Is a ditch, and at the flash of the flames some men w7To were walking along the side of the can dropped into the water and saved their lives. Explosion Did Nit Kill. Several employes state that It was not the force of the explosion that killed the men. Flames and lack ot alr caused all the 'fatalities. All admit that the accident was tlW Mt violation of the law, but they state lhat miners are accustomed to those violations. Thomas Dougherty, a miner, and one of the survivors, was thrown out of a car'and saved himself'by jumping. Into a ditch. He said: "We were riding along about: fifty feet in the tuniiel.

Anthony constitutional amendment resolution, which was adopted In the house May 21. The vote In the senate was 5H to 2h, or two more In favor than was necessary. Alt bo of mraaurp are confident of final success, there is a division of opinion among leaders as to whether the ratification by the states'of the proposed amendment can be secured in time'for the women all over the country to vote in the next presidential election. Few state legislatures now are in session and many will not hold sessions until late year. Because of pressing reconstruction problems, however, special legislative sessions are expected to be called In a number of these states and the suffrage. amendment will be -presented. Whers none is caiieu lor, tha suffragists will demand special sessions, it is announced. Opposes. Chief opposition to. ratification Is expected Ui laitflMwiiv -sfajthern states because of the Entailed enfranchisement of negro women. Senator Oay, of Louisiana in opposing the resolution yesterday, predicted that thirteen states would refuse to ratify the amendment, thus causing its defeat. Senate Votes For Amendment Washington, June Susan B. Anthony amendment to the federal constitution, granting right of suffrage lo women, was approved by the senate late yesterday by a votr'of 56 to 25, receiving votes more than the requisite two-thirds of the senators voting. As the amendment was approved by the house on May It now goes at once to the state legislatures for ratification. There Is no limitation in the time of ratification and the eventual approval by the necessary thirty-six legislatures of what will become the nineteenth amendment to the constitution Is regarded as certain. Unless, however, extraordinary sessions of many legislatures are called this year or. next year, Susan B. Anthony's prediction that American women would enjoy universal suffrage by 1920 appears unlikely of precise fulflllment. Only, six legislatures arc now In session, one ot them being Illinois, which has the opportunity of being the first to ratify. Both Sides Are Confident. Suffragists expect no difficulty In obtaining ratification In the twenty-eight states now possessing presidential suffrage and will conccntrate their endeavors upon lining up at least eight of remaining twenty states. Anti-suffragists are confident that the amendment never will be ratified and will devote their efforts to holding thirteen or more states In the negative column. With thp adoption of the amendment resolution by congress the women hnve won the first main objeotlve iu their fight of forty-one years for the franchise, a triumph they regard as equaling If not exceeding In importance any won by their sex sITice struck the first blow for the rights of women.

SENATE TO DEMAND TEXT OF TREATY Sitter Debate Over Resolution Asking State Department For Full TextBorah Threatens to Secure Wall 8treet Copy and Place It in Records Wanta Investigation. Washington, June vote may be reached In the senate late today on the bitterly debated resolution introduced by Senator Johnson, republican, of California, asking the state deparimeat for the full text of the peaoe'treaty With Germapy. Several hours of wehf expected to precede roll call, hdwevejy and of the measure wete hot ccrtain of tliair ability tu before adjournment. Before the senate met it was considered unlikely there would be consideration today on the resolution Introduced yesterday by Senator Hitchcock, of Nebraska, ranking democrat of the foreign relations committee, proposing that the committee Investigate the reported "leak" of copies the treaty to New York. Senator Borah has said he intends to put the text of the treaty into the senate records if he can secure the copy from New York. It was stated authoritatively today that Senator Hitchcock introduced his resolution on request from the White House after a conference yesterday with Secretary Tumulty. President Wilson is being kept fully of the situation In the but so far as has been made known ho has not indicated whether he would authorize the state department to furnish the treaty the senate In the event of the passage of Senator Johnson's resolution. Senator Hitchcock, In calling up his resolution for no investigation, declared the statements of Senators Lodge and republican members of the committee, regarding, the presence of copies In New York, constituted a monstrous charge. If this charge had been made In the Interests of the public, he said, and not merely In order to attack the treaty, the senators making It would have demanded senatorial investigation. The speech drew replies from both Mr. Lodge and "I presume," said Mr. Hltcheook, "that itii'it wili be no Biibstantial objection to this proposal. It Is a matter of the most tremendous urgency that investigation be had of charges made upon the responsibility of senators that copios of the treaty have fallen the hands of NSew York Interests while being withheld from the senate." 'The request for tht? Investigation should have been mado'' "by the senators who lugged into the senate this th serious-charge. They do'not appear to realize the embarrassing position In which they placed themselves by not asking an investigation." A declaration by the Nebraska senator that Senator Lodge and Senator Borah had "insinuated wrongly" that the president hail permitted copies to go to business concerns brought Mr Lodge to his feet at once. "I said nothing whatever about financial Interests." the Massachusetts senator. "It Is possible." replied Mr. Hitchcock, "that there may be some difference between j-he two senators In that respect. They concurred, however, In their "This charge involvas an attack on the president of the United States of the most scandalous nature. It appears to be a new chapter in the attack on the treaty Itself. It Is a monstrous charge. Men who vnafce such a owe It to.the public demand Investigation and they would have demanded Investigation had been making it In the public ajsd not for the purpose of hurting the treaty." Senator Hitchcock declared that If New Yark Interests had treaty copies, "they apparently are in closer communication with eneme? of the treaty than with friends of the treaty mm ti mm.
