Germany's peace plenipotentiaries nave submitted two notes to the allied and associated powers in answer to the peace terms they received Wednesday. Unofficial reports from Berlin and Paris say that the notes were presented to Premier Clemenceau, as chairman of the peace conference, by Count von Brockdorff -Rantzau, chairman of the German delegation, on Friday night. According to a Berlin report, the German answer declares the peace treaty has in it demands which no people could bear and German experts think many of them cannot be car ried out.

The Ger man delegation has been in close touch with Berlin and is said to have received instructions from the home government. President Ebert's government has ordered a "week of mourning" in Ger many because of the severity of the ' peace terms as they view them. The political situation in Germany is un settled and there are reports that if (the present government refused to pign the peace treaty, it will be suc ceeded by one composed of independent socialists.

The allies can admit of no discussion of their right to insist upon the terms of the peace treaty substantially as drafted. This is the reply to Count von Brock-droff-Rantzau, head of the German peace delegation, who submitted a note to Premier Clemenceau declaring that the peace treaty contains demands which could be born by no people, and many of them incapable of accomp-lishment. Count Von Brockdorff-Rantzau has also been informed in answer to his complaint that Germany was alked to sign the allied plan for a league of nations, although not among the states invited to enter it, that the admission of additional member states has not been overlooked but has been explicitly provided for in the second paragraph of Article 1 of the covenant. PRESIDENT WIIiL ANSWER INQUIRIES MADE BY HUNS Paris, May 17. President Wilson will personally direct such answers as may be decided upon concerning Ger man inquiries in the peace treaty differing from the presdent's 14 points. This was announced in high quarters today in connection with the instructions which Chancellor Scheidemann has given the German plenipotentiaries at Versailles to address a note to the allies comparing the terms of the treaty with the 14 points and making r counter proposal for verbal negotia-ions. Thus far, however, no such note or counter proposal has been received and it is the present opinion that nothing is likely to take such form for a week, as the Germans probably will wish to study the treaty before taking action. The view is held by the American delegation that Herr Scheidemann's objections are not well taken that the treaty is contrary to the president's fourth point on disarmament, and fifth point on colonial questions. It is explained that while- the treaty contains a provision for Germany's disarmament, this is preliminary to the general limitation of armaments by other nations and that the covenant of the league makes a general restriction of armaments. Herr Scheidemann's contention that (Continued on Page Two).

The German peace delegation declares in letters sent to the allied and associated powers that on essential points the basis of the peace of right agreed upon between the belligerents has been abandoned. Two letters have been sent to the 'allies, to which replies have been made. The first letter is as follows: "The German peace delegation has finished the first perusal of the "Jeace conditions which have been handed over to them. They hav had to realize that on essential points the basis of the peace of right agreed upon between the belligerents has been abandoned. "They were not prepared to find that the promise, explicitly given to the German people and the whole of mankind, is in this way to be rendered illusory. "The draft of the treaty contains demands which no nations could endure. Moreover, our experts hold that many of them could not possibly be carried out. "The German peace delegation will substantiate these statements in detail and transmit to the allied and associated governments their observations arid their material continuously. (Signed) "BROCKDORFF-RANTZAU." To this letter the following reply was made today by the allied and associated powers. "The representatives of the allied and associated - powers have received the " statement of objections of the German plenipotentiaries to the draf t conditions of peace. "In reply they wish to remind the German delegation that they have formulated the terms of the treaty with constant thought of the principles on which te armistice and the negotiations for peace were proposed. They can admit no discussion of their right to insist on the terms of the peace Biihstantiallv as drafted. They can consider only such practical suggestions as the German plenipotentiaries may have to submit." ' The second letter from the German representatives: reads: j "The German peace delegation has the honor to pronounce its attitude on the question of the reague' of nations by herewith transmitting a German program which, in the opinion of the delegation, contains important suggestions on the league of nations problem. ' , , "The' German peace delegation reserves' for itself the liberty of stating its opinion on the draft of the allied and associated governments in detail. In the meantime It begs to call attention to the discrepancy Jying in the fact that Germany is called on to sign the, statute of the league of nations as an Inherent part of the trea-ty draft handed to us, and, on the other hand, is not mentioned amonr the states which are invited to Join the league of nations. s .

Springfield, 111., May 10. Recognition by the federal administration of the international brotherhood of electrical workers is the only hope of averting a nation-wide strike of- the entire membership, n July 1, which will affect about 150,000 persons. This was the decision reached here today when it was announced" that the completed referendum vote which has been in progress for the past few months showed a majority of 8 to 1 in favor of the strike. Charles P. Ford, international secretary, in announcing the result of the vote, said Postmaster General Burleson repeatedly had declined to adjust matters. He added that present wages are the same as those paid in the past two years. The entire telephone and telegraph systems qf the United States would practically be tied up in the event of the strike, it was said. NORMAL GIRLS WILL , HEAR BISHOP CANDLER Is Chosen to Preach Commencement Sermon Dr. Anna Howard Shaw to 1 Deliver Address Berlin, Friday, May 9. A "week of mourning" has been decreed by the government to give expression to the "sorrow and depression" called forth by the announcement of the peace terms. The week will begin Sunday. The decree provides that public frivolity must be stopped for a period of eight days. Its provisions affect the first-class theatres in the same manner as the popular cabarets. Dancing, horse racing and gambling will be suppressed for the week, and the occasion probably will be used to put a definite end to the gambling- frenzy which is holding greater Berlin in its tentacles. A season of soul searching would seem to be the most probable reaction to the frivolity and gambling which has been in progress. On the day, the peace terms were published here, the Karishorst race track took in more than 130,000 marks in gate receipts, while the better sheds distributed 3,500,000 marks. During the week 6f mourning the cabinet expects thatr the federated states will give loyal cooperation to its endeavor. Jb have every city, town andttamlet Observe the occasion.

Chapel Hill was today the scene of the greatest patriotic celebration hejd in its history when the citizens of the town, the university community and hundreds who poured in from the surrounding community joined hands in extending to the heroes (of the world war who went from this community to camp and battlefield and to the other branches of the service a hearty "welcome home" celebration and in like manner fittingly honoring their fathers and grandfathers who ' wore, the gray, the Confederate veterans. ' A mammoth parade, which included in the line of march the Confederate veterans, the overseas and training camp troops, the former S. A. T. C, and students, the navy, marine and aviation men, the school Children, the Boy Scouts, the flag girls, the Y: M. C. A., and the Red Cross groups; Col. Joseph Hyde Pratt and his staff, the Daughters of the Confederacy and the home guard, marked the opening of the day's celebration. The parade was followed by appropriate exercises in Memorial hall when eloquent addresses paid flttinpr tribute to the old- and new soldiers. Splendid speeches were made by Dr. Archibald Henderson, Maj. L. P. Mc-Lendon and Col. Joseph Hyde Pratt. The spacious hall was filled to overflowing, which is to say that over 3,000 crowded in. An elaborate spread was. served to the overseas and training camps men, speakers and guests, following the speech-making program. The local Daughters of the Confederacy were mainly responsible for -the huge success attending the occasion, although all Chapel Hill organizations co-operated in a splendid manner. Dr. A. H. Patterson, chief marshal, was chair- man of the program committee. Chapel Hill was bedecked in gala attire for the occasion. National and Confederate flags and "welcome home" banners were stretched across the streets at close intervals: The stores were also decorated. The automobile and other floats were ablaze of color. Following: the parade appropriate exercises in honor of the old and new" soldiers were- held in Memorial .hall, Maj. Wm. Cain, presiding. The speakers gave unstinted praise to the bid soldiers whose. glory has been enhanced rather than . lessened by participation in a "Lost Cause," and to the heroes of the world war who like . crusaders; have battled in a jusf cause and returned covered' with glory and honor. The" 30th division, comprised largely of North Carolina troops, came in for a great share of the praise. TWO SAILORS AND 4 NEGROES ARE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN KILLED IN CHARLESTON RIOT Charleston S. C, May 11; Two bluejackets and four negroes were re-ported to have been killed and a large number wounded, eight severely, in a race riot, which broke out here late last night and continued until early Sunday morning. The trouble was said to have grown out of the shooting of a sailor by a negro in a downtown pool room. In a short while more bluejackets from the naval training station here and civilians joined in the fight. It was several hours before the rioting could be quelled- For a time the rioters practically had possession of the downtown streets. A negro barber shop on King street was almost wrecked and in several instances street cars were stopped by pulling down the trolley poles and negroes on the cars were beaten up. One negro was shot down as he was snatched off a car. - In Beaufain street two shooting galLeries were raided by bluejackets, according to police reports, and the small calibre repeating rifles were brought into play. Police were almost powerless and civilians, except those joining the sailors, scurried to safety. Bluejackets were rushed from the naval training camp to stop the rioting and were armed at police stations with. riot guns. They were soon joined by marines. In the meantime, half a dozen naval officers running the risk of death from stray shots had forced a number of rioting sailors Into line and were establishing order at various plaqes. All persons were ordered off the streets and under orders from Rear Admiral Benjamin C. Bryant commandant of the navy yard, the marines and bluejackets started to round up all other bluejackets and rush them to the navy yard and to the training camp in motor trucks. It was estimated by the police that at one time almost a thousand bluejackets were taking part in the rioting. They could not say how many ne-. groes were involved or how many white civilians joined the sailors.

By far the largest crowd that ever, assembled in Robeson county gathered here today to do honor to veterans of the three wars the Civil War, Spanish -American and the recent world war. The crowd was estimated at 25,000, representing every nook and corner of the largest county in the state. The weather was ideal for the occasion and the program was carried out in detail as arranged." Several hundred soldiers of the world-war and 72 heroes of the sixties, attended the celebration held in their honor. Nothing was left undone in making the day one of joy and pleasure . for the soldier veterans and they seemingly had the time of their lives. A military parade, one of the best arranged and most attractive ever seen here an address by Lieut. O. Max Gardner, the unveiling of a memorial tablet erected in the court house, bearing the names of 72 -Robeson soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice in helping make the world a fit place to live in, and airplane flights were the special features of the day. Hon. G. B. Patterson, of Maxton, was master of ceremonies and introduced all the speakers of the occasion. The soldiers were welcomed on behalf of the town by Mayor James D. Proctor, on behalf of the county by State Senator "H. E. Stacy, and on behalf of Robeson county Red Cross by A. W. McLean. Each of the speakers seemed tuned for the occasion and their addresses were most fitting and appropriate for the greaik.oecasion. The address by Lieut.-Gov. Gardner was one of the most eloquent ever heard in Robeson. He paid glowing tribute to the soldiers of the Civil War, those of the world-war and told of the great work done by the women of America in helping to bring victory to the American soldiers. Thousands of people heard the address and the speaker was given great applause as he .painted a vivid , picture of the great " 'task undertook and completed by the United States in winning the war. After giving one flight, the airplane, which came from Camp Bragg, Fay-etteville, was so badly damaged in landing that the afternoon flights had to be abandoned. However, thousands ot Robeson people saw their first airplane In action. One of the aviators was slightly hurt in the accident, Munich was caused by the seftness of the.ground on the field where the plane-landed. - The occasion, will long be remembered as the greatest ever held in the c"'intv and both Lamberton and the county at large did themselves proud in ne manner in which they welcomed their heroes. It was a red letter day, Lumberton was well dressed for the occasion. Professional decorators were employed to put the town "in order." The military; parade was a feature of the day. The-Confederate veterans led the parade and then in their order followed the Daughters of the Confederacy, the Spanish-American war veterans, Red Cross and' Victory loan workers, .floats,, band and the world-war heroes.

MAY ATTEMPT BIG 'HOP' THIS WEEK: Planes Reach Trepassey, "Jumping Off" Point For Trans-Atlantic Flight BOTH IN GOOD CONDITION Second "Leg" of the Coastal Journey Made From Halifax, a Distance of 60 Miles, At Average Speed . r ai Miles Honr Trepassey, N. F., May 10 The American naval seaplanes, NC-1 and NC-3 were 'moored tonight in Trepassey bay, the "Jumping off" point . of the long trans-Atlantic flight, having completed the second "leg" of -the coastal jourey from Rockaway Beach, N. Y., with a 460-mile flight from Halifax. The N C-l, piloted by Lieutenant Commander P. N. L. Bellinger, swooped down into the harbor at 6:41 p. m., Greenwich time, having ' made the flight in six hours and 54 minutes at an average speed of 65 nautical or 74 land miles an hour. The N C-8, piloted by Commander John H. Towers, comander of the flight, arrived at 10:31 p. m., Greenwich time, having been compelled to put back to Halifax for propeller repairs after flying 50 miles from that harbor. Its flying time on the the successful trip was six hours and 56 minutes, or two minutes more than that of the N C-l. Both planes appeared to be In the best of condition upon their arrival and officers and crews expressed confidence that the two "hops" across the Atlantic to Liston, Portugal, would be without difficulty. Weather conditions permitting, it is expected that the. flight to the Azores, a distance of-1,200 miles, will be attempted next week. NAVY MAY ALSO START AN AIRSHIP ACROSS ATLANTIC St. Johns, N. F., May 10. The united States navy may start an airship on a trans-Atlantic flight almost simultaneously with its seaplanes, it was learned here today. Soon after the information came that the C-5, latest of American naval dirigibles, would leave Montauk Point for New Foundland in a few days, it was asserted that if this trial trip is successful, the Blimp probably will be sent on its way to England. The American project, kept secret during the long period of preparation, became known today when the cruiser Chicago arrived to act as a bane ship for the dirigible. St. Johns will be the terminus of the 1,200-mile test run and the starting point of the overseas flight if one Is attempted.

Pending a decision by the supreme court o the United States as to the' constitutionality of the child labor law, the internal revenue bureau will continue to enforce its provisions, according to a statement issued today -by Commissioner Roper. The . child labor section of the new revenue bill became effective April 25. Jt imposes an annual tax of 10 per cent on' the net profits on any industry in' which children under 14 years of age are employed.

Reports reaching state Victory loan headquarters tonight show that the state has passed the twenty million mark with Saturday's subscriptions still to be counted. These reports will be tabulated during the night and a statement given out tomorrow. The indications from early reports are that a good day was experienced throughout the state, and Chairman Brown has grounds " for believing the state quota of $27 -000,000 will be reached. Washington, May 10. The fifth and last popular loan of the United States has been oversubscribed. Although the' approximate total subscriptions will not be known for nearly two weeks, figures available- tonight showed that the American people had responded generously to the appeal to "finish the, Job." , Like all p-f it processors, the vlc- tory bjlbrt? clean rteAa&far Jumped on.

None of today's harvest ' was included in the total ' of $3,849,-' 638,000 subscriptions officially tabulated tonight by the treasury and officials . would not be surprised to see the final figure go to nearly six -billions. Only $4,500,000,000 will be accepted. Late today Secretary Glass Issued this statement: ; "While the official reports to the treasury department show only $3,- i 849,638,000 subscribed up to noon on Saturday, unofficial pdvices from the several districts indicate that without any doubt the victory liberty loan is. already largely oversubscribed, with every district making a determined ef-' fort to gather in every possible subscription before midnight. "Thus for the fifth time the country has met the call' of the treasury department for the funds required and the great liberty loan organization has ohce again proved Its mettle." ' The only guage by which officials could attempt to estimate subscriptions not yet tabulated was provided-by the record of the fourth liberty loan when $2,392,000,000 was reported after the subscription drive had ceased. The last reports obtainable when the fourth campaign ended showed $4,-599,000,000 already tabulated, or 76 per cent of the six billion' dollar total although final subscriptions amounted to $6,991,000,000. Up to today in the current loan campaign. 54 per cent of the total sought has been pledged. Official figures tonight- shows that the Minneapolis. ' St .Louis and Cleveland districts had already-raised more than 100 per cent and. the Chicago district reported that , its quota had certainly reached that -mark although tabulation of figures- to - support the claim could not be completed. New York district managers calucn-lated that their district on final accounting would go about $200,000,000 above its quota. Messages from Boston-and Philadelphia district headquarters said cryptically, "Don't worry." The increase in subscriptions today' over the total last night was $534,-' 768,000. Aside from this the feature of developments today was the Jump of the Cleveland district In the percentage column from ninth to third place with an Increase of from 53 to more' than 100 per cent. -Boston, Cleveland, Baltimore, St. Louis and Washington were amongst' the cities which- officially obtained-their quotas early today. Alaska and- : Hawaii also made similar records. The Dallas district, which has been lagging In its subscription figures, re--poTted at the opening of today's business that it probably had 80 per cent of its quota, and that the outlook wag excellent for a 100 per cent subscription. Atlanta district managers sent word that the rural banks were slow In sending in their- subscriptions, as in previous campaigns, but that final re- -ports would show the district had done what was expected of It. Maryland, including Baltimore, pass- ed into the column of 100 per cent.' ( states early today. The sections of Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky with-' in the St. Louis district also reached their quotas. , Storms interrupted communication in the Kansas City district and consequently the district's report for . tonight is the same as Jresterday'sv ' v Subscriptions by districts taDuiatea he Vaga.
