This suggestion brought expressions of I surprise from members of the 1 Council as it had been- thought the Austrian delegation had full power. Trying to Avoid Delay. The Council is urging the Aus- trians to make some arrangement to sign the treaty without taking it to Vienna. The signing of the treaty, as a result of tliis unexpected develop- ment, it was said, may be postponed until well into September.

CARNEGIE LEFT SEVERAL TIMES WANTED TO DIE PAUPER 'Learned from Authoritative Sources He Left More Than Reported. WASHINGTON, Aug. first open move for a .com- promise in the League of Nations fight came from administration quarters today embraced in a proposal that the Senate adopt inter- pretive reservations but that they be kept apart from the actual ratification of the treaty. The overture' met with no immediate success on the Republi- can side of the chamber, Senators of the Republican reservation group declaring they could not recede from their position that to be effective the reservations must go into the ratification itself. His Efforts Futfle. Senator Pittman, of Nevada, a Democratic member of the foreign relations committee, presented the compromise proposal in the form ot a resolution embodying in effect the four reservations agreed on bv seven Republican senators and declaring them to constitute the Senate's un- derstanding disputed noints in the covenant. In the Republican draft, however. it is expressly provided that the reservations "be made a part of the treaty by the instrument of ratifi- cation." a proviso McXary ot Oregon, th which Senator and others of PRESIDENT DISCUSSSES DEMANDS OF SHOPMEN WITH DIRECTOR MINES Director of Railroads Promises Shopmen's Leaders to Con- sider Plans. ie group of seven Republicans said Djrector G 11 ey considered absolutely necessary wlut Hou _______1, vi ,rntnc o ro 1 r, LU U1L VV1ULK J3.UU NEW TOPOC.

A general debate developed during which Senator Borah, Republican, Idaho, and others took exception with President Wilson's distinction between moral and legal obligations under the covenant as expressed in yesterday's "White House confer- ence between the President the foreign1 relations committee.

He Is none other than the grand! duke Nicholas Nicoluievitch, uncle the late Czar.

It is the first hint that ho has 'been here, and it is announced he came and went in disguise. How he escaped from the Crimea is a mystery. Recently he was reported at an obscure village near Genoa, Italy. Idol of Kuislau Masses. A man of the grand duke's am- bition and talent, it is generally agreed here, would accept no subordinate part in grand scale campaign being planned, but would unquestionably take the supreme command. He is still the idol of the Russian masses, and his reappear- ance in Russia, with the battle cry oi! a savior, would rally hundreds of thousands of volunters around hla banner. What Nicholas would do once he had assumed power is a different story which sceptics who know hin .well do not like to contemplate, "Topple Lenine the future take care of, Ts tho watch- word of the hour, and on tnat theory the great war council at Stockholm is working.

A revolution has broken out at Kattowitz, near the Polish German frontier, and Dsperate rioting is raging at Rybeik. Fifteen thousand workers, mostlj' miners, are striking in upper Silesia, and the labor unj rest threatens completely to paralyze the output of the mines at a moment when coal is sorely needed. Later despatches state martial law has been proclaimed throughout upper Silesia. Fifteen Germans have been killed in clashes with Polish troops that had crossed the frontier into German territory, -according to Berlin. These troops, however, Chancellor Baner announced, were not regulars, a'-nd the Polish government could not, there- fore1, be held responsible. Herr Bauer asserted in a statement to the Weimar assembly that the German government has the situation well in hand.
