No official reports had reached national headquarters tonight to give any compruherwtve idea of the Harvest on the opening day of the three weeks campaign. Reports Indicated that the opening i was marked by less excitement than i those of previous loan campaigns j when fighting was In progress In Prance. Generally the t ruined work- \ ers of former loans had enlisted for , the last effort. \ Long before closing hours tonight ' telegrams arriving at the treasury i told the story of enthusiastic com- i munities which had subscribed their full quotas the first day.

Ansell, former noting judge; advocate general and chief figure in the attack upon the army disciplinary system, accused the committee of the American Bar Association today with linvhig placed itself under the domination of the war department in Ita Investigation of military justice, and of shotting Its eyes to the truth. Hi.-t assertion, made on hLs appearance liefore the committee, was protmtly challenged by Chairman Gregory, who warned Col. Ansell that he was oversuspl-ctous and "on the wrong track." "We are not anybody's tools," declared Judge Gregory. "1 have practiced law two and one-half times as long as Secretary Baker. I don't propose to surrender my judgment to anybody. If you are for justice, this committee will strike hands with you." Col. Ansell proceeded with his arraignment of the court martial system itself, denouncing It as un-American and the practically unchanged sur- vival of the old British military code: adopted in 1774, when soldiers were the creatures of a sovereign or overlord.

The Americans were chosen by the Irish societies in the United States to appeal to the peace conference on behalf of Ireland. The arrangement for the meeting teas made by Col. E. M.

Tho showing in Castalia was made shortly after tho drive started and covers one-fourth of the allotment to that village. This is distinctly a farming community. Liberty loan officials consider the Castalia amount to be indicative of the sentiment among the farmers to support the or to call officers or others whose; views ho wished to be presented. j Colls System Oppressive, j Col.

RAIL POWER WASHINGTON, April 21.-Steps national reputation for sever- i looking to early determination of the government's authority under the joint resolution of congress, by which control of the railroad and transport system of the country was taken over to fix intra-state rates were taken today by the) supremo court tn agreeing to expedite certain of tost cases-brought under the resolution. The court, fixed May 5 for hearing arguments. Final decisions before the court adjourns in June for the Milliliter was considered probable by ruiii't officials. (By The Associated Press) When apparently the council Victory Liberty l0f four was ready to take decisive action on the Italian claims in the Adriatic, including the coast islands and Fiume, the Italian delegates, Premier Orlando and Foreign Minister Sonnino failed to appear at Monday afternoon's session. These ministers . had discussed the problem insistently with Premier Clemenceau and Premier Lloyd George earlier In the day. For the purpose of bringing the matter to a climax, President Wilson attended the afternoon session. It was then expected that the question, which up to that time was considered almost insurmountable, would be decided. But, owing to the absence of the Italian delegates, discussion of the Italian claims was dispensed with. It is announced that the council will take no further action on the subject pending information as to the future course of the Italians. Germany has accepted all the conditions of the allies with respect to the Versailles conference. There Is little expectation in competent conference circles that it will be possible to finish the discussions with the German delegates and have tho treaty signed within a week from the date fixed for the first meeting. Indeed, the completion of tho negotiations within such a period was declared to bo a physical Impossibility. Portsmouth Meet Recalled. It may be recalled that tho convocation of the Portsmouth peace conference was somewhat delayed by a similar point regarding the competency ot ! tho credentials of the Russian dele-| gates. Russian officials stated after j President Roosevelt's Invitation to tha \conference had been accepted by the | emperor that delegates were being (sent merely to learn on what basis Japan was prepared to enter into dis-I cussions, and that a decision wherther | tho negotiations would be continued ( on such a basis would be taken at St. i Petersburg and not by the Russian i representatives at Portsmouth. I Japan immediately announced that �she would not send representatives ex-1 cept to meet with fully accredited ' plenipotentiaries authorized to negotiate peace. After a second Interview !bv the. American ambassador, George i v'on I.. Meyer, with tho Russian em-' pcfor. it was reluctantly declared that (tin- representatives would be plenipotentiaries. A press representative, [ however, coined tho epigram that a ! plenipotentiary was a representative I fully empowered to do as he was told.

Announcement of the engage, merit was made Monday following a consultation with Cleveland loon liendqimrters by tho general loan committee officials In Sandnsky, The speaker Is booked as one of the star orators of the drive. Senator Tomerene's message Is considered of such vital importance by the loan committee, that It was decided to have him talk directly to the business men In all walks of life In this city. He will emphasize the necessity of putting the issue far over the top in every county in Ohio, and every state in the nation. Reservations for plates must he made immediately through the loan committee or Secretary Eubank, of the Chamber of Commerce. The officials in charge of the drive felt Sandusky had been highly honored when they learned that Senator Pomerene had been sent here, since his services are so much In demand. The visiting senator has spoken In Sandusky on other occasions. He made many friends then by his oratorical ability and sound reasoning powers. The 1-hllh U. S.

FESS DA VTON. April 21.-Congressmen States by its constitution. Bimeo 1). Fess and Warren G. Gard de bated the league of nations covenant here tonight. Fess opposed the league because ho held It endangered the Independence of the U.

We did get Into war, and we -were unprepared, and because I see this danger I w.uu tha language of the covenant to be specifio enough to eliminate ami chance of the U.
