KOMI-:, April 25.-Premier Orlando, addressing tlw; crowd which grcot�� espoused the cause of militant .suffragists brought her into disfavor with the British Government. Luring tho great strike of dockworkers in 1913 she supplied 96,000 meals to starving children of the strikers. FIT ME, April 26.-A vast crowd, including the members of many organizations, escorted the national council, which visited General Graziola today to express the city's determination to be annexed to Italy. with fresh sacrifices and privations. At this moment Italy is ready and greater than ever-greater than in May. 101 o. "The decision must bo a well considered one. Food supplies are. failing us, but Italy, which has known hunger, has never known dishonor. I do not conceal from you tho danger of this very critical hour." (Cries of "We will face anything.") "I am with you," continued the premier, "a brother among brothers, and also a chief who asks to obey and follow tho will of the people. It may ho that we shall find ourselves alone, but Italy must he united and have ut hlngle wll. Italy will not perish." At the close of his address the premier was given an ovation. Gen. Lia-vc utnl Hignor Bar/.ilal, of the peace delegates, then spoke and were cheered by the soldiers and sailors. Prince Co-loiina, mnyor of Home, asserted that there were complete solidarity of the people of Home and of Italy with tho government. Circat Crowd Accompanies Premier. Premier Orlando, Gen. Diaz, Prince Colonna and Hignor Barzllat entered motor cars and a procession was formed which proceeded to tho royal palace In Qulrlpal Square. The passage through the streets was extremely slow owing to the density of the crowds, which insisted on drawing the car occupied by Premier Orlando. Homo idea of tho numbers gathered can be gleamed by the fact that it took the premier's car two hours to cover the short distance between the station and Quirlnal Square. At the palace tho party joined tho king, queen and crown prince on tho balcony. The entire group was acclaimed with enthusiasm by the assemblage below. CHATHAM, Mass., April 26.-The probablo loss of a seaplane with a crew of threo men who started on a return trip from Boston to tho naval station hero yesterday was indicated by the finding of part of the propeller and onu seat of tho piano on the beach at Provincetown tonight. The men wero Lieut. J. 8. Buchanan, Ensign John G. Howard and Electrician Bernard Tornes. Seaplanes and submarine chasers sent In search of the missing men today found no truco of them. Pilot, Plane, Burned WASHINGTON, April 28- An nir RAMSEY GIVES LIE TO STORY ABOUT RECORDS Says "Non-Sectarians" Were Never Denied Right to Look Over Books of Church; Hert-lein Bears Him Out. R. K. Ramsey, who has represented the vestry of Grace church in the controversy between that body and other bodies and individuals, Saturday night iLsed the "shorter and uglier" word in replying to published statements credited to the eommitttce named to make the Good Samaritan hospital n non-sectarian institution. "The statement that the committee has been unable to secure a copy of the records of the hospital is an absolute lie" declared Mr. Ramsey "Neither the church vestry or myself care to break into another newspaper i controversy, but if it Is necessary U 1 give the lie to such unjust statements aa were published Saturday. I am read}- to prove that what has been printed Is an untruth." Attorney John F. Hertlein. who on behalf of tho committteo was delegated to either look over the records or have copies made, Saturday night stated that in all ! fairness to Mr. Ramsey, it should be known that he has not at any time refused to permit the committee the right to look over the records or to have them copied. "Mr. Ramsey has been very busy with his regular duties and with the Liberty Loan campaign" said Attorney Hertlein "and it is only fair to hi into say that ho has never refused to permit an examination of the records." Ramsey Hits Hard In Reply, "The records are In my possession" declared Mr. Ramsey "and are the only evidence that we have. Mr. Hertlein, who represented tho committee, was told that ho could view the records at any time ho saw fit and not until two or threo weeks lifter the appointment of the committee did he broach the subject. Then I told him that he could certainly look over the records anytimo it wa; convenlont for him. We fixed the time. He wasi unable to keep the appointment and I did not hoar from (Continued on Pago 2, Col. 6.) Fifth Liberty Loan, However, is $150,000,-000 Behind Fourth For First Week Work WASHINGTON, April 26-The nation's total Victory Liberty loan subscriptions tonitfht stood at $705,623,-100, the officially recognized result of five days of campaigning. Little of today's business found its way into the figures as given out tonight by the treasury. At the close of the first week of the fourth Liberty loan compaig-n, the tittie corresponding to tonight in the Victory loan drive, subscriptions of $8o5.133,000 had been rolled up- $1.00,000,000 more than has been subscribed this week. Since the fourth loan was larger than the current i*-seu, the percentage at the end of it? first week was 14.25, whereas 15.66 j per cent of the Victory issue has been' subscribed. j Tho St. Louis district stands first I in the percentage column, witli 80 \ per cent of its quota already subscribed and covered wtth initial installment payments. The Chi-capo district ranks second, and Boston tliird. In volume of sales, New York has $190, highway and extends back from the road to the West Huron marsh for a dlstanco ranging from 1,500 to 1.80C feet. / It is planned to build a handsonv entrance gate about 100 feet back form the main highway. A wide, concrete road will be built from tha' point to the marsh. The Boeckllnr company will then continue tho road across the marsh and connect with the present Chaussee on Cedar Point at a point above that part of the peninsula which is annually affected by the spring and fall east and north-ens t storms. This will eliminate the trouble caused by washouts and provides all the year around automobile connection between Sandusky and thr Point. The old road and entranci will probably be abandoned. The O. A. Boeckling Co. has loni contemplated this improvement ar the annually increasing auto traffic to Cedar Point demands that a permanent through road bo established In addition to providing necessary facility for traffic, tho improvement will reclaim many acres of marsh land, already owned by the resort company. To 'Repair Old Rood. Work of placing the damaged seo-tlon of tho old road In shape for thr coming season's trafl'io will be start ed this week. President Boeckling says that such examination of the road as ho has made leads him tc. believe that tho damage douo last fall and this spring la not as extensive as in tho previous seasons. Thousands of feet of lumber, tons of s^one aud other materials have been ordered and will bo delivered early In the week the season, traffic. the road will be ready foi THE WEATHER Week's Forecast WASHINGTON, April 26.-Weather predictions for the week beginning Monday, Issued by tho weather bur eau today, are: REGION OR GREAT LAKES: Fall early days of the week with roturr to normal temperatures, rain proba bly about middle of week upper lake region and a day later lower lak S S .Marie-NW-Clr 40 Wosh'tou-NW-Clr 62 �31 3 Long before the opening of Med.

Further written statements have thus far been withheld, in order not to inflame Italian sentiment further. But friends of the president took steps today to relieve him from being the sole person to bear the burden, and this, may lead to some public declaration of the British and French attitude. In the meantime it can be stated that President Wilson's copy of his Italian declaration bears tho initials of Clemenceau and-Lloyd-Ocorgo. Tho French premier affixed his signature last Monday and gave his approval for its publication Tuesday, but the president delayed Its issuance until Wednesday. Beside this initialed approval of the British and French premiers, another written document exists which ! was prepared immediately after the i Issuance of the president's statement, ! with a view to expressing approval and support from the highest official I quarters. This is not from Lloyd-Samuel j George, but from one able to speak Declares Post itiaster Autocrat, Completely j Out of Sympathy With Labor's Cause. NEW YORK, April 26, Gompers, president of the American'with authority on foreign affairs. It 'is devoted chiefly to Fiume, examin- WAR LEAGUE PLEDGES TO PUSH LOAN Hundred Members in Solemn Meet; Total Reported By Banks is $381,850. Morn than 100 members of tho Krlo County AVar Ijcasuo took u solemn pledge at the High school auditorium Saturday night tliat they would devote every ounce of enerjry this week in putting across Sandusky's portion of tho Victory loan. The meeting of tho workers had been called to put a littlo spirit Into a campaign that has been lagging behind here the past week. At the close of business Saturday about 23 per cent of tho loan had been subscribed, the total reported by the. banks being f381,850. Workers report that the small loan buyers are not taking this issue. It Is claimed that a number of people have not enough money to take even a $50 bond, due to the fact that labor conditions have not been of tho bust, and the continued high cost of living-. Una worker reported that he canvassed two sipiarea of his territory this time, selling Just threo small bonds, whereas in the other loans every house on the street had bought at least one bond. Small Investors Are Very Shy. This condition seems to be general In different Piirts of the city. A re-cheeking and a re-cauvasslng of the territory will bo made this week, when tho big effort to put over tho loan will be made. Lee Keller, in charge of the war league, said that the members wero organized now to put on tho drive In real high class fashion, and they would got busy bright and early Monday morning. Keports from the rural district, according to Keller, show that tho subscriptions there are far ahead of thus,) In the city, In proportion to tin; amounts given the various dlsti'teta to raise. Keller said this week, though, would change things in tho city. Tho official report from the banks at loan headquarters yesterday showed these results: American Bank................$ 1,050 Citizens Bank.................. 3tt.2uo Commercial National Bank.... 8,100 Third National................ 12,t:>0 Peoples S.

Federation of Labor, assailed the administration of Postmaster General Burleson in a statement issued here today, declaring that he must "walk the plank sooner or later." Gompers' statement follows:- "The troubles of Postmaster General Burleson, which in a recent statement he a tributes to a plot or a conspiracy on tho part of tho American puhUshcrs, ore not duo solely to any dispute there may liave been between tho postmaster-general and the publishers to whom he refers. The most recent example of Burleson's autocratic nature does not come as a surprise to these in the labor movement who have como in contact with his administration. "Labor was long ago forced to the conclusion that Burleson was completely out of sympathy with the trend of American thought and wa? totally unable to comprehend what America meant when it declared war upon autocracy everywhere. Burleson needs only a wider field and a better opportunity to fit him for succession to some of the world's best known but unlatnented ex-dictators. The only d+ftficulty In Burleson's way is that the world has reached the decision that it wants no more die tators. Tho United States post office department is one of the very few places In the world not ynt In accoiV with that decision. Workers Resented Treatment. "Long beforo the U. S. government took over tho telegraph .systems of the country Burleson's cold and autocratic treatment became known to the workers engaged in tho posta' service. Naturally resentment has followed this course and this resentment has increased in volume exactly In proportion to the Increased field over which Mr. Burleson rules. 'The workers in various branches of the postmaster-gen. deportment have come to understand thoroughly that democracy and the post office department havo nothing hi common except that they exist under tho same rov-erninent. Time after tlmo these employees have endeavored to secure the opportunity to be hoard by the postmaster-general through their representatives for the purpose of i�eaenting grievance?) or just causes for complaint. They luivo sought to lay before him their complaints in order tliat they might have Ids consideration tuid in order tluit an adjustment might bo brought about through tho democratio proceoduro of negotiation. These pleadings for an opportunity to ho heard luivo been as vain a.s they havo been frequent. ".My own experience with the po-n-ino-jter general has been of a lng the question at length and concluding against the Itnllan position and in support of the president. It Is sismiflcant that the name of Italy has been included in the final draft ofjjic peace treaty, indicating tliat the allies hold no change in Italy's status as signatory of tho treaty. The preamble, as drafted, contains a full list of allied powers wldeh made war against Germany with tlio names of the plenipotentiaries. It is in this list tliat Italy figures with a complete list of tho five plenipotentiaries headed by Premier Orlando. It will be in this form presented to the Germans next Wednesday, unless exceptional conditions Intervene, definitely severing Italy's participation with tho allies. Italy Still in League Draft. Italy Is similarly included in the appendix to the revised covenant of tha league of nations, giving the names of the countries forming the league. The covenant in this form will go before the plenary session of the conference Monday, for, despite the strained situation, Italy continues to be given full status as one of the entente allies. This has been one of the most anxious days of the peace conference, with all eyes toward Borne. While work proceeded on the final details of (Continued on Page Col. 4.) What Do You Think?
