Nebrakan Opposes Tariff on
Chains Now Sold at Low
Price by,Foreign Factories.
Washington, June 20. The senate
got back to the tariff bill today, but
only for an hour. The finance com

In addition to its big program for
work, the convention was marked by
the beginning of a movement to run
Mr. Lewis as a candidate fr presi
dent of the federation in opposition
to Samuel Gompers. Although Mr.
Lewis declared he was "in no sense"
a candidate, efforts were pushed in
his behalf during the day.
During the discussion of repeal .of
the transportation act, Joseph A.
Franklin, president of the black
smiths union, described the railroad
workers as the "only labor group that
is tied to its job." He declared that
President Harding had told Br' M.
Jewell, president of the railway em

that "national agreements had to go"
and he reviewed various decisions
of the labor board, which he said,
annulled these agreements between

Mr. Franklin's speech brought

Mr. Gompers, who was presiding, to
inform the convention that such a
declaration had been withheld from

Frank Harrison Claims Mem
bers of Commission Draw
Salaries and Refuse
Washington, June 20. (Special
Telegram.) Reorganization of the
Brazilian exposition commission was
forecast today as the result of the
squabbel between Frank A. Harri
son of Nebraska, culminating in
charges and counter charges ' and
causing such dissension that Presi
dent Harding has taken a hand in
ironing out the situation.
Following the acticvn of members
of the commission who have been
at loggerheads for some time in
bringing their grievances to the State
department and the White House, it
was officially announced on behalf
of President Harding today that he
would review the ' situation at con
ference probably tomorrow, at which
the members of the commission, to
gether , with representatives of the
State department would be present.
Souabble Not Serious.
While the president does not re
gard the squabble within the commis
swion as of serious character, he and
the State department are anxious to
end the conflict, as its continuation
would affect the efficiency of the
body a,nd create an embarrassment
tor this government in carrying out
its part in the forthcoming exposi
tion at Rio de Janeiro. Secretary
of State Hughes, apart from his of
ficial interest in the matter, has
a personal interest, inasmuch as he is
to head the American diplomatic
mission which is to go to Brazil,
and for defraying the expenses of
which congress has already made an
The row which compelled Presi
dent Harding to take up the role of
peacemaker is primarily between
Frank A. Harrison of Nebraska,
resident commissioner of the expo
sition in Wshingtbn, and other mem
bers of the body.
Collier Made Special Trip.
Commissioner Collier made a spe
cial trip, to the United States partly
in connection with the row in the
commission and partly to discuss the
work of the commission with the
president and the State department.
He has already conferred with the
president and presumably discussed
the friction. He sails for Brazil
June 24 and President Harding is
hopeful that harmony can be re
established before he sails, without
resorting to changes in the member-
ship of the commission.
The charges of Resident Commis
sioner Harrison were particularly
directed against Mrs. Livermore
and Mr. Kirby. These charges are

not been attending to their official
duties, that they have been receiving
