Premier Is Loudly Cheered In Parliament Speech; Tribunal Of Allied Powers Will Try Kaiser In British Capital LONDON, July 4. William Hohenzollern, the former German emperor, will be brought to England in a British ship and imprisoned in the Tower of London, according to the Daily Mail. The death penalty wilt not be sought, the newspaper points out, but if he Is found guilty the allies ask his banishment for life to a remote Island. The International trial court had Intended to try the former emperor alone, the Daily Mall ays, but It Is possible that the former crown prince, Federick William, will also be arraigned before it. LONDON, July 3 (By The Associated Press).

Premier Lloyd George delivered in the house of commons this afternoon an explanation of the peace which he described as "the most momentous document to which the Eritish empire ever affixed its seal." Though showing the effects ot his long labors at Paris and lacking his usual fire, the premier at times made impassioned utterances, and was loudly cheered. His announcement that the former German emperor would soon be placed on trial before a tribunal sitting in London was cheered most of all, while his presentation of the Anglo-French' convention, providing- for British aid if Germany should attack France unprovoked a convention analogous to one between the United States and France was greeted with unrestrained approval. Recalls Great War 8peecea The scene recalled some of the great speeches of the war. All the seats were taken and every Inch of standing room was preempted. The Prince of Wales, the American ambassador.

John Wj Davis and Thomas Nelson Page, the Japanese and Italian ambassadors and many other noted persons were in the distinguished visitors gallery. The gallery behind them was unusually colorful, because under the recent rules women were admitted to this section, and nearly monopolized the space. The premier had a good reception from all sections of the house. His speech was largely impromptu and discursive. He told of the peace conference's efforts to prevent wars in the future, and reviewed some of the striking restrictions put upon Germany in the treaty signed at Versailles.

Discussing the determination of the allied and asos'ciated powers to place On trial William Hohenzollern, the former German emperor, as the man hld chiefly responsible for the war. he declared that if such a course had been followed after other wars "there would have been fewer wars." It was the intention to make such an example of Germany as to discourage others "from ever again attempting to repeat this infamy."

The negroes, comprising 800 men of the 10th United States Cavalry, were here from Fort Huachuca, under command of Colonel George E. White, to lead the parade for the Fourth of July celebration here. Three hundred of the negroes were in Bisbee when the trouble started, the remaining 500 being in camp on the outskirts of the pity. Says Negroes Intoxicated The riot was precipitated at 10 o'clock in the evening when George Sullivan, white, military policeman of the 19th United States Infantry stationed at Douglas, was passing by a negro club in upper Brewery Gulch known as the Silver Leaf club, while on duty. Five negro cavalrymen, ac.

cording to Sullivan and other witnesses, made a tauntiiig remark as he passed. Seeing they were intoxicated, Sullivan says, he told them they had better go home.

He was later removed to the local hospital. The remaining four negroes broke and ran, but were rounded up and deprived of their arms after a short chase.

Occurrence la Deplored Both officers and men of the 10th Cavalry stated last evening that the occurrence was deeply deplored by practically the entire regiment, as a nature not at all typical of the relations existing between the cavalrymen at Fort Huachuca and Bisbee. and as having been caused by an irresponsible Jew who fell under irresponsible influences.

The most cordial relations, say the soldiers, will continue between Bisbee and the Fort Huachuca camp in the future. Colonel White, commanding the negroes, stated that the weapons they carried were part of their equipment. It was learned that the cavalrymen, being on a tactical march in their visit to Bisbee to take part in the celebration here, are furnished side arms and ammunition under the regulations.
