public statement soon on the sub
Still Opposes Reservations.
Senator McCumber is the only re
publican member of the foreign re
lations committee who has favored
the league and it is understood Mr.
Wilson talked over with him com-
mission action on the treaty and the
general situation on the republican
side of the senate. Senator Nelson
never has made a public declaration
for or against the treaty. To all of
his callers the president is said to
have reiterated his opposition to
reservations of any character in
senate ratification of the treaty.
The president Friday will continue
his talks with senators inclined to
be friendly toward the treaty pro
visions, though it is expected that
later he will seek a conference with
virtually every republican senator,
including those who have most bit
terly opposed ratification. Senators
Rellogg, Minnesota, and Kenyon,
Iowa, both of whom have kept open
minds on the treaty, have been in
vited to call onhe president Friday
morning and Senators McNary Ore
gon, a league supporter, and Capper,
Kansas, who has taken no definite
stand in the matter:
No Right to Summon Wilson.
The position of the foreign rela
tions committee with regard to
meeting the president as a body was
explained in a statement by Chair
man Lodge, who said no congres
sional committee "has any right or
should have any right to summon"
a president before it, and that Mr.
Wilson had not asked to appear.
While the president was begin
ning his White House conferences
the senate left Shantung and the
league and adopted without a record
vote a resolution by Senator Borah,
republican, Idaho, asking for infor
mation relative to the Shantung ne
gotiations. Specifically the measure, which
was not debated, asks the president
for any information as to whether
the Chinese delegates were "intimi
dated" by the Japanese and requests
a copy of a letter said to have been
written on behalf of General Bliss,
Secretary Lansing and Henry White,
protesting against the Shantung settlement.
In his address announcing ac
ceptance of the league principles,
Senator Colt declared the covenant
would not conflict with the Amer
ican constitution nor create a super-
government, and asserted that if
it is unthinkable to desert England
and France and Italy when the
world is in chaos then we must. De
come a member of the league as
providing the only machinery for
the restoration of peace' and order."
He withheld judgment, however, as

Youthful "Bad Man"
Tears Up Blankets
in Cell; Breaks Down
Freehold, N. J.tfuly 17. Edward,
O'Brien, the youth held here for
extradition to New York, where he
was indicted yesterday for the mur
der of Gardiner C Hull, a Manhat
tan stationer, was discovered short
ly before nvdnight tearing his blan
kets and apparently tieing them into
a rope. Jail officials believe he was
planning to take his life by hanging
in the manner in which Dr. Walter
Keene Wilkins, convicted of slaying
his wife, committed suicide in the
Guards entered O'Brien's cell and
everything by which he could harm
himself was taken away.
O'Brien has broken down, jail of
ficials say, and rapidly is losing the
bravado which characterized him
when he made his confessions of
the crime and told tales designed
to stamp him as a "bad man." He
recanted last night his declaration
that he killed Mrs. Wilkips.

house was marching through the
center aisle to be counted after de
mand for tellers had been made,
distress calls were sent out for
prohibition members, who came pil
ing in, in sufficient numbers to beat
the jury trial amendment by two
votes 78 to 76.
Aftc; rounding up a quorum the
house took up the constitutional
prohibition enforcement bill, set
down as part two of the measure,
and defeated, 71 to 35, an amend
ment by Representative Igoe, demo
crat, Missouri, eliminating the
definition of intoxicants. This was
precisely what was done the other
day to the wartime act and was in
accord with expectations.
The house was proceeding rather
rapidly with consideration of the
bill, with Chairman Volstead pre
paring to close the debate, when
the minority protested. Meanwhile
amendments were being offered and
voted down without ceremony,
while those presented by the chair
man went down in rapid succes
sion. When the house quit work at 10
o'clock Thursday night it was in
the midst of the utmost confusion
over a series of amendments offered
by Chairman Volstead relating to
flavoring extracts, and it was agreed
to have them printed in the record
so that the members could see what
it was all about.
Without debate the prohibition
ists voted down a set of amend
ments offered by Representative
Gard that would have made the
bill more drastic.
An amendment by Representative
Wilson, democrat, Pennsylvania, to
permit a citizen to make wine and
cider for his own use was defeated,
72 to 50.
Mr. Volstead's flavoring extract
amendment was adopted, 74 to 49.
No American Consuls

Paris, July 17. (By the Associ

British, French and other European

This dra'stic method of dealing
with the building strike situation
was decided upon--by the executive
committee of the Building Construe
tion Employers' association of Chi
cago, which discussed the subject
for several hours behind closed
doors before announcing the action
taken. Officials of the association
declared that their industry has been
seriously interfered with for several
months because of the frequent
strikes of various unions and that
recently the situation became intolerable.
They charge that the different un
ions involved refused to be bound
by joint trade agreements covering
the question of wages and hours,
and that as a result of the frequent
walkouts, contractors have sustained
heavy financial losses and that own
ers have been deterred from award
ing contracts for extensive building

Work undertaken by the bureau

ent was the fact that about 30 per
cent of the addresses of discharged
service men are Incorrect so that
the bureau is unable to communicate
with them regarding the continuance
of their payments and conversion of

It was declared that approxi

$40,000,000,000 have not continued

by so doing it would lose its iden

latter organization announced its re
fusal to enter the federation, and the
former convention proceeded to or

Washington Bureau. Omaha Bee.
Washington, V. C, 'July 17.
Through the personal effort of Rep
resentative Jeffries, the State depart
ment today cabled the American em
bassy in Pans to amend the pass
port of Miss Mona Cowell, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cowell,
of Omaha, to permit her to return
to the United States via England.
Miss Cowell, who has been en
gaged in Red Cross work in France,
went under the usual passport to h?r
destination in Europe, the passport
reading that she would return di
rectly to home in the States from
France. All Red Cross passports are
wired subject to this direct return.
When Congressman Jefferis took
up the matter with the State depart
ment, asking that the passport be
amended at the request of Miss
Cowell, who is at the Hotel Os
borne in Paris, officials informed
the congressman that it was the
policy of the department to have
female war workers return to this
country direct and not spend days
in visiting other countries of Eu
rope when their work was conclud
ed. Thfy even went so far as to
say that they did not want female
Red Cross workers or other war
workers to enter upon art or other
studies in Europe while holding war
then it occurred to the congress
man that Miss Cowell desired to
visit her father's relatives in Eng
land and sail from there, and with
this explanation instructions were
cabled Paris permitting Miss Cow
ell to visit England before return
ing to the United States.
Extensive Test of Coast

Washington, July 17. Plans have

Manila, July 17. The Philippine
legislature purposes the enactment

The proposed measure, it was said,
would be an exact copy of the act

Minn., formally announced today
that the league officials will attempt
next week to begin proceedings in

for the state, with perjury.
Attorney Sullivan in his statement
declared that the case would be
based upon testimony given at the
trial by Nicholas and Teigen. who
declared they had no business rela
tions with each other prior to the
Townley trial. The attorneys for
Townley and Gilbert unsuccessfully
sought to introduce evidence which,
they declared in court would pur
port to show that Nicholas and
Teigen had corresponded regarding
Nonpartisan league matters several
months before the trial.
