WILSON'S REPLY TO
PAPAL PEACE NOTE
FULL OF MEANING
Continued trom lis "w. '
chaelis to meet the demands of the
rei.hstag committees by his projected
cabinet representative of the more pow-
erful political parties in Germany cer-
tainly a long step in the direction of
parliamentary control of the government.
The German-Argentine negotiations
insincere and hollow as they are be-
lieved to be on the part of Germany
are viewed officially here as another
evidence of the weakening of Germany's
afftrressive policies and to that extent
as perhaps designed to mollify the Unit-
ed States government as well as neu-
tral maritime nations and so to afford
a fresh basis for peace negotiations.
When the response to Pope Benedict's
proposals will go forward from the al-
lied governments is unknown to the state
department which is t without of-
ficial information that Its own commu-
nication has reached the Vatican.
Approval of the president's note was
expressed generally at the capitol Wed-
nesday by members of all parties. There
was no discuss'on of it on the floor in
either house although Senator Stone
touched upon the subject of peace in a
speech denouncing newspapers for at-
tackinc him He said he never had In-
tended introducing a peace resolution as
some of his critics had stated.

concrete solution of a question which has
long troubled the statesmen of Europe.

It was said the negroes or most of
them would face charges of mutiny in

punished by death in consequence of the
rioting last week in Houston.
Against 34 charges of murder have
been preferred in indictments returned
at Houston as a result of the killing of
17 and the wounding of many more in the
officers explained that the courtmartial
probably would be held here in the be-
lief that it would be undesirable to take
the negroes to Houston for trial.
Transfer of the prisoners from Co-
lumbus was effected without incident.
Whether the prisoners' against whom
indictments have been preferred will be
returned to Houston for trial by civil au-
thorities upon demand was uncertain
Military officers stated it was not ob-

ceed at-onee upon its merits."
If these rules are followed out there Is
no other alternative but to dispose of
the demurrers and exceptions before going
into the trial ot the issue upon the
Hule & also has this paragraph:
"All demurrers and exceptions having
been acted upon the board of managers
shall read and present the articles of Im-
peachment and the respondent shall enter
his appearance and present any answer
in writing that he may desire to present."
However these previsions may be
waived or amenaea.
It is more than likely that Governor
1 will first enter a spe
cial appearance for the purpose of making
a motion to. dismiss the charges upon sev
eral legal grounds.
Those who are familiar with the im-
peachment trial of Governor Sulser of
New Vork call attention to the fact that
a motion waa there made to dismiss on
the ground that the house met under the
call of the governor and that In Issuing
the caH for a special session Governor
Sulser did not include In the matters to
be considered a recommendation tor any
In the present case. It may he argued
that the call of Speaker Puller waa void
and that the house met only under the
call of the governor which had fox Its
purpose consideration of the university
appropriation and did not include a rec-
ommendation for impeachment. The an
swer to this contention in the Sulser trial
waa that the legislature has no Dower to
adopt impeachment charges but that the
house has sucn power at any time mat It
may be In session.
