numbered and after the decision was
arrived at, it falling on number six,
the winner was found to be Miss

both large and small things of ev

ON PACIFIC PACT
Senator Robinson Says Secretary of
the U. S. Commission Denied
Knowledge of Treaty.
Washington. March 10. Renew
ing his charge that the four-power
Pacific treaty was negotiated "secret
ly," Senator Robinson, democrat, of
Arkansas, declared on the senate
floor today that while the negotia
tions were in progress Secretary
Hughes, as head of the American
delegation, had misled newspaper
correspondents and through them the
press of the country by denying that
he knew of any such plan.
Correspondents who were assigned
to the conference, the Arkansas'
senator asserted, not only were un
able to obtain any authoritative in
formation as to what was going on.
but many of them suffered profes
sionally because they had placed
credence in what Mr. Hughes told
Senator Lodge, Massachusetts, the
republican leader, replied that he
considered it "inconsequential that
the secretary denied knowledge of
the four-power plan, and read from
a nublished article Quoting a "high
official" of the state department as!
"Four delegations signed the
treaty, therefore it can truthfully
be said they all wrote it. Who wrote
it does not matter. What is in it
"Is Nobody's Business"
"That," said Senator Robinson,
"sounds like Mr. Hughes. He says.
substantially, that it is nobody's bus
iness who wrote it.
"The men whose business it is to
inform themselves and the newspa-,
pers and magazines they represent,
know it was a physical impossibility .
to obtain from any source informa-
tion of a reliable nature whether a
four-power pact was in contempla-.
tion and what such a pact contained. '
The whole thing was kept as secret!
as possible. The head of the Ameri
can delegation denied any knowledge
Describing the other so-called ple
nary or public sessions of the con
ference. Mr. Robinson mimicked
amid laughter the manner in which
he said Secretary Hughes repeated
stated decisions reached privately,
announced that he supposed there
was no further discussion and then
hurriedly began to call the roll, "ab
solutely shutting off any possibility
To this Senator Lodge replied that
of course there was no need of pub
lic discussion of "matters which had
been thoroughly discussed by every
one at the table and had been agreed
. Had Talked it Over
Taking issue also with Senator
Robinson's assertion that no four
power treaty was in the mind of any
American delegate when the confer
ence began, Mr. Lodge asserted that
he had "talked it over with the sec
retary of state, I think before the
conference was called, certainly be
fore it met." He declined to elabo
rate on the statement..
The republican leader also took
note of charges that the four-power
treaty and the Anglo-Japanese alli
ance contained some of the same
language and declared that the only
similarity he found was in the inclu
sion in both of, the expression "will
communicate with one another fully
and frankly," a clause which he as
serted was a "commonplace" one in
Today's discussion of the treaty
was of brief duration, most senators
desiring further time in which, to

MENT SCHEME DISCLOSED
Washington, March 14. Large
numbers of persons have been made
victims of fraudelent advertising for
labor in connection with the Muscle
Shoals project near Florence, Ala.,
it is aid in a statement issued to
day by the United States Civil Ser
It is stated by the commission
that there has been brought to its
attention recent advertising thruout
the country In which persons out of
work have been promised positions
at the Muscle Shoals project, condi
tioned upon their paying a registra
tion fee of one dollar each. It is said
that large numbers of unemployed
men: have responded, paying the re
quired registration fee and receiving
tiothing in return. It is understood
that the matter is to be presented
to the Department of Justice for in
vestigation - and possible prosecu
tion. The Civil Servic-e Commission
states that further operations at
Muscle Shoals depend upon action of
congress, and that no one can say at
thU, time whether the government
will resume the work, or whether it
will be conducted under private
ownership or contract In any event,
the commifsion said. ther i no Jus
tification for adverting for labor
to be employed at the project. If the
government undertakes to complete
the work, such lahor as may be nec
essary will be secured in the usual
way through government agencies. It
is said furthermore, that 1t is cer
tain that no private person or com
pany is taking steps to secure labor
for Muscle Shoals in the present uncertainty.-
The Civil Service Commission
warns the public against the pay
ing of money in the hope of secur
ing employment at Muscle Shoal3.
