SOS Soutk 16th t St. Colt Impressed by Wilson's Arguments on Shantung Award (Continued From Fas One.) that the president might make a 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. Constitution Unhurt. 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 to : the Monro? doctrine and other features. ."

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 Mineola tail. 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."

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 in German Ports Yet Paris, July 17. (By the Associ ted Press.)

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 projects.

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.

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.
