MILWAUKEE, Wis., Aug. 27. -The

Attorney General George F. Wicker

resolution recognized the status as mem

members who had been unseated by the

Secretary of War Jacob M. Dickinson
that further discussion would bring criti

Scores of members protested against the
resolution, while others argued that while
it- would allow the present negro mem

Address of President Gregory.
S. G. Gregory of Chicago, president of
the association, in his annual address
said in part:
"It Is obvious that we live in a time of
much political and governmental activity.
No doubt the importance and gravity of
controversy is often exaggerated by those
who participate in it. In the perspective
of history political and popular conflict
loses somewhat of that sharp outline and
aspect of almost revolutionary violence
which it wears while the battle Is on.
Still, making all due allowances, when
we reflect that two amendments to our
national constitution are now apparently
ki if in ifi rin hi niHnn - w riMn wh nnnmnitr i un
radical changes in the organic law al
ready secured in several states and con
templated in others; when we remember
the marked Innovations la political meth
ods accomplished by the direct primary
extended this year for the first time to
the selection of presidential candidates,
it Is not necessary to look beyond the ex
tensive confines of our own land to es
tablish the proposition that we live In an
age of the political revolution.
Constitution Under Examination.
"Now we seem to have reached a time
when the very constitution and frame of
our government is under critical exami
nation. The necessity for those safe
guards in administration which have been
deemed essential to the security of rights
to life, to liberty and to property, 4s
called in question. The progressive tide,
stayed by constitution barriers, threatens
now to sweep them all away."

MILL OFFICIALS CHARGED
WITH STORING EXPLOSIVES
BOSTON, Aug. 27. An alleged con
spiracy on the part of Boston men who
are officers of mills in Lawrence to secret
dynamite during the general strike In the
latter city last winter is the subject of
an investigation begun by the Suffolk
county grand jury today. District At
torney Pelletier "had a number of mill
officials appear before that body. Some
time ago in Lawrence, John Breen, a
politician of that city, aas convicted of
storing the explosive and fined $500.
Among those summoned to give evi
dence before the grand Jury was Ernest
"W". Pltnj&n of Andover, a mill contractor,
who shot and killed himself today. Pit
man's suicide was ascribed to worry over
finances. ' ' -" --'
"When the dynamite was found secreted
in several places In Lawrence the leaders
of the Industrial Workers of the World
who were conducting the strike, declared
they were no responsible. They charged
that the dynamite was "planted" for the
purpose of leading the public to believe
that the unions were plotting to blow up
the mills. . ,
