.California Divided. .
The state of California i divided
into two camps, one urging dissolu
tion and the other fighting for con
tinuation of the present arrangement.
An interesting feature of the
situation is that the commission, in
its tentative plan, put the Central
Pacific with the Southern Pacific,
while Prof. Ripley, who prepared
the report from which the commis
sion made its tentative plan,
thought the Central Pacific should
be linked with the Union Pacific.
The California Producers and Ship
pers association has been active in
opposition to consolidation of the
Central Pacific with the Southern
Pacific and in urging that the deci
sion of the supreme court be car
ried out. This organization has
issued statements from which the
inference has been drawn that it be
lieves that the Interstate Commerce
commission will be bound by the
decision of the supreme court and
forced to divorce the Central Pa
cific from the Southern Pacific in
any consolidation plan devised for
the railroads in the far west.
Could Form New System.
Against that point of view is the
belief on the part of many that the
transportation act gives the.Inter
statt Commerce commission the
authority, in adopting a plan for
consolidations, to disregard the anti
trust statutes on which the supreme
court based its decision in the
Southern Pacific-Central Pacific
antitrust case. It is conceivable
that the commission could form a
system of roads in the west which
would include the Southern Pacific
and the Central Pacific.
The Union I'acific, through coun
sel, has issued statements designed
to show the advantage that would
accrue to the shipping public if the
Central Pacific were joined with the

League to Pursue
Hands Off Policy
in Asia Minor Row
Not Expected to Interfere Un
less for Protection of
Frontiers After Peace
Terms Are Fixed.
Geneva, Sept. 10. (By A. P.)
The league of nations, it is generally
conceded, will not interfere in Asia
Minor affairs unless for the protec
tion of frontiers after the govern
ments have fixed peace terms be
tween the Greeks and Turks.
The first phase of the third as
sembly of the league ended today
with the close of the general debate
on the council's work, without giv
ing any indication as to what the
assembly may do. The tone of the
speeches, including thore of the lead
ers, such as Lord Robert Cecil, the
carl of Balfour and M. Hanotaux.
tended to show that they were con
vinced that the league at the present
time, was unable to make much prog
ress in anv direction other than to
ward what is called "moral disarm
ament." Cannot Do Much.
This' will consist of the prepara
tion of the minds of the peoples
throughout the world for abandon
ment of force as a means of settle
ment in international dispute. Lord
Robert Cecil, one of the most active
of league enthusiasts who have con
tended that the league must go ahead
and act on all questions within the
sco of the covenant, say frank
ly that under present circumstance
the league cannot do mum cut con-

in Federal Court at

Chicago, Sept. 10. Battle lines
were being sharply drawn today and
tonight by the United States gov
ernment and the striking shopcrafts'
union fo rthe hearing Monday on
making permanent the Daugherty
injunction against the strikers, re
cently issued by Federal Judge Wil
kerson. The goyerumcnt is prepared with
three truck loads of evidence, to
show a gigantic conspiracy on the
part of the strikers to cripple the
railroads and paralyze the transpor
tation facilities of. the country. This
evidence, it is said, will include the
murder of 25 or more men.
It also includes scores of confes
sions of sabotage, bridge burning
and dynamiting, pulling of spikes
nnd removing fish plates from rails,
to cause wrecks, putting acid in
engine boilers and emery dust and
iilings in the bearings of locoinatives
and cars, tampering with food at
various shops and many other crimes
against which the temporary injunc
tion was aimed. The government de
sires to make the injunction perman
ent, but the unions will fight to have
it dismissed, or at least have its
teeth pulled in many respects.
