SOME PLEM NOT GUILH Operations Declared to Have Been Sensational—lndicted by New York Grand Jury. New York.—Five American citizens and two subjects of the German em pire, one of tbem a woman, are named as fellow-conspirators in two Indict ments returned by a federal grand Jury here. Investigators declared their operations the most sensational under taken by German intelligence agents since the war began. The Indictments allege conspiracy I to commit treason and conspiracy to' commit espionage. The assembling and-transmission of lnformatltfh rela tive to America's prosecution of the war; the destruction of American! piers docks and troop transports with 'fire bombs, destruction of quicksil ver mines in this country to hamper the manufacture of munitions ; as sisting Germany In taking an armed expedition in Ireland; fomentation ot a revolt against British rule in Ire land. raising of funds in this country with which to finance these aera tions, and destruction of munitions factories and mines in Great Britain are charged as ramifications of the in-. trigue. I The wording of the Indictments com prising SO pages, intimates that the conspiracy may be of even broader scope. This Is suggested by a para graph in the treason Indictment which alleges that in July last year, one ol the defendants sent a cablegram to Olten, Switzerland.' "Madame" do Vlctorlca, Rodlger, Robinson, Fricke and Kipper pleaded "not guilty" to both indictments be fore Judge Augustus N. Hand and were remanded to the Tombs to await trial today. » O'Leary, now wanted on three cbarges, and Ryan have not been ap prehended. The treason conspiracy Indictment charges that "Madame" de Vlctorlca and Rodlger, "from April 6, 1917, to the date of the presentation and filing of this indictment, were enemies o| the United States and spies for and secret representatives, secret agents and secret employes of said Imperial Oerman and still are. After naming Ryan, O'Leary, Rob inson, Fricke, Kipper, Binder and Schweitzer «a citizens owing allegi ance to the United States, the indict ment charges that they "and divers other persons within and without th« United States" whose names are un, known, conspired to commit treason. In that they "would knowingly and wilfully adhere and give aid and com fort" tp the Oerman government, and to Madame de Vlctorlca and Rodlgei by sending to the Oerman government communications "connected with and In prosecution of. the war," receiving from Oerman officials communications "connected with and in promotion of the war" and by furnishing money and credits to Rodlger and de Vlctorlca; by concealing the presence and actlvi ties of the two alleged from American authorities and/by furnishing messen gers to the two suspects.

The next big campaign that mmt be put over with the lint success that met the recent Red Croaa and Liberty Loan drive* U th» War Savings Cam paign. This mnat be done, President Wilson says, on or before Friday, JUM 28. He has proclaimed that day National War Havings Day and has called oa every man, woman and child to subscribe all that In hla honest opinion he will be able to pay during the remainder ot the year to the War Saving* Cam »algn. . * When Mr. Vanderlip and his associate* decided over a month ago that •he War Saving* Campaign ihould be made to go "over the top" now, Imtead •f taking a year and a month to do It, tbey sought a plan by which this could be done. The State ot Nebraska furnished the plan, for this state had already subscribed several million* dollar* over It* quota and had ralsd over BO per cent of It* *ale*. . Mr. Vanderlip at once aet about to know how Nebraaka did It. He called Into conference Mr. 'Ward M. Burgeis, Stat* Director of War Saving* for Nebraska, and Mr. Klddow, Mr. Burg***'a right-hand man. Together they atudled the plan In the light of a national plan, and with the experience of the two men who had worked It to a successful issue, they obviated mlatake* and such feature* as to make It even more thorough and practlceable for other State*. Comequently, not only North Carolina but other state* of the Union have been aaked to adopt this plan and put over the War Savlnsg Campaign June 11. When 001. F. H. Fries, War Saving* Director of North Carolina, was called to New York ceveral week* ago, with other *tate director*, to hav* this plan put before them, he was asked if North Caffollna could do It. "Sure," ■aid Colonel Fries, "what Nebraaka can do. North Carolina can do. Well put It over if It take* all the bunting aad the flag* and the drum* In the whole South to do It." With thi* conviction and determination, Colonel Frle* came back and set about tr perfecting the plan* to make them most suitable to North Carolina condition*. These plans have been presented through conferences held at convenient placee la the atate to the county chairmen aad other War Savings Workers. Every county chairman has in his hand* a detailed copy of the plans, and be has been advised to follow the In*traction* step by step as given \hlm to avoid confusion and to do the work with the' greatest possible eaae aad efficiency. Only one important change la the national plan did Colonel Friee think belt to make for North Carolina. That was to make the campaign last a week Instead of a day. Therefore, the week beginning June 21 contlaulng through June 21 has been dealgnated as North Carolina War Savings Week. The dovernoraof North Carolina has issued a proclamation oalllng for every citizen of the state to observe this week as War Bavlnge Week by subeeiib- Ing at this time all that he will be able to buy during the remainder of the year. The week begin* on Sunday, June 23. with a state wide appeal for War Savings la the churches and Sunday Schools. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday, a house-to-house canvass will be made In every township la the State to secure War Savings pledges. Every taxpayer or householder will make his pledge or give his excuse for not doing so. A record of every per son's pledge will be taken aad kept. Oa Friday, June It, the drive will cul minate In a War Savings rally held at every school house in the state. The State Director has called on every person In the school district to attend this meeting either to celebrate the occasion of the township's subscribing its quota or if that be not the rase, to finish raising its quota. In other word*, there is but one thing for any township to do on that day, and that Is to sub scribe Its quota to the War Savings Campaign. Likewise, there is but ooe thing for every parson to do. and that Is to do hft duty to tha War Havings Campaign, which Is his utmost. The Government expects no less of svery man, woman and child In the state on this occasion.

After » breathing space, the Ameri cans late In the afternoon returned to thefray and at laat accounts hard fighting was In progress tor this Im portant sector, which cpmminds the Marne at that part of the front where the battle line swings eastward toward Rhelms. The marines took 100 Ger mans prisoner In the early encounter, while the French troops on their left also gained an advantage over the en emy and made 1(0 of hla men cap tive*. So hard pressed have the Oermans been by the attacks of the Americans In the Chateau Thierry sector during the lait few days that they have been compelled strongly to reinforce their front, using three divisions of plcksd troops In an attempt to bold back the men from ove«*eaa. Thus far, bow ever, their efforts have been unavail ing. The Americans could not be denied their objectives.

The nlen are being hardened to long marches, given target practice without end and thor oughly trained to take care of them selves In the give and take of open combat.
