Paying Tribute to Mem
ory of Washington.
Princeton, N. J., June 9. Presi
dent Harding , dedicated a monument
to the achievements of George Wash
ington In Princeton today, and heard
himself bailed at a man of "quiet
courage" and "immense patience and
self-effacing modesty" in his own
policies towards current and con
troversial issues. The words came
from Dean West, who used them in
mention ' of the president's stand
against the veterans' bonus and his
votes for anti-strike law as senator,
as he recited the reasons which in
duced Princeton university to give
the president an honorary degree of
doctor , of laws.
Twice the stimilus of an intent
audience . caused President Harding
to break away from prepared manu
script in his speech.- .
Before the Princeton student body,
stirred evidently by the high praise
of the- citation of himself, he almost
disregarded preparations to lay
down some standards of valuation of
men. "I care iot what position a
man may momentarily be in," he ex
claimed, "you can measure his stand

service he renders the community in
which, he resides.
Cannot See Future.
"Less than a Century and a half

' Advertising Talk No. 5
"Please allow the advertising you are now placing with '
us to influence you to place more with us,' substantially, says
the newspaper which continually argues its advertising velum
as a reason for a larger volume. When facts' are available,
however, a better basis is easily found for placing advertising;
the result producing power of the paper.
The Associated Retailers found the "rate per 1,000"
circulation of the three oUily papers to be as follows: The
News, $0.0218; the Herald, $0.0196; The Omaha Bee, $0.0200.
In other words The Omaha Bee charge per 1,000 cir
culation is lower than the News and practically the same as
the Herald. , . . V
The findings above are especially significant, construed
with the fact, also, that the byiag power of The Omaha Bee's
, subscribers was found to be considerably greater per 1,000 ub
cribere than any other paper. Seveaty-fiva par cent of The
Omaha Bee, Omaha subscribers, own their vt homes, ac

Consideration of
Bonus Deferred
at Least 10 Days
Exact Course on Measure in
Senate Still Uncertain
Another Amendment .
Is Offered.
Washington, June 9. Efforts to
obtain - senate consideration of the
soldiers' bonus bill will be deferred
for at, least. 10 . days,- it was stated
today. Whether it will be taken up
by agreement among republican
leaders: or without the consent of
some remains to be determined.
Chairman McCumber of the
finance committee, who will pilot the
legislation on the floor, has informed
senators that in nixing a time to call
the bill up he will try to suit the
convenience of most of them. ' He
said he realized that there were
those on each side who had to be
absent from time to time because of
primary campaigns in their states
and who desired to be present when
the bonus is considered.-
Another bonus amendment was of
fered today, Senator McNary, repub
lican, Urcgon, proposing the smith-
McNary ; $350,000,000 reclamation
measure as a land settlement feature,
This bill already has been reported
to both the house and senate, but as
a Dart of the bonus measure it would
be changed, Senator McNary said, so
thaj: veterans would be given prefer
ence in the purchase ot land in ex
cess of the farm unit, and inthe
preference to homestead public lands
lying within a reclamation district
Under another change the service
of' veterans would be utilized as
practicable on the construction of
each .reclamation project. Mr. Mc
Nary said it was his purpose to press
his amendment provided a majority
of the senate show5 a desire to in
corporate land settlement provisions
in the bonus bill. -

Labor Leader Interprets Colo

tion of Rights of Unions
to Strike. j
May Appeal to Congress
Cincinnati, June 9. Protests of
organized labor, as voiced here to
day at preliminaries for the annual
convention next week of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, centered
against the supreme court, the con
gress and state legislatures in general.
Samuel Uomoers. president of t
federation, in addressing a club of
business men, interpreted the' su
preme court decision in the celebrated
Coronado coal case as a negation of
the right to strike, and declared that
organized labor would appeal to con
gress tor new legislation setting aside
the decision. ' .
Will Not Dodge Fight
In criticizing the supreme court.
Mr. Gompers said that he expected
to be "taken strictly to account" for
his utterances, addinj that "I do not
run away trom a tight.
"But. it has come to a pretty pass.
he continued, "when an American
citizen can no longer discuss and
criticize the decision of the court. Any
one, if he feels so disposed, can criti
cize even the president of the United
states or the United Mates senate
or the congress. Pray of what flesh
are the members of the supreme court
that they are above criticism beyond
that of the president of the United
Delegates to the meeting of the
metal trades department of the
federation, by unanimous action, as
sailed congress and state legislatures
as enemies of labor, and declared
for labor's active preparation in the
fall campaigns in an effort to elect
its friends regardless of their poli
Unions Liable.
In his speech, Mr. Gompers said
the Coronado decision made inter
national unions, endorsing strikes',
liable for damages, and he asserted
this meant the unions must with
stand ."'constant litigation " o; get
out of business." - .?'
"If you compel men and women.
regardless of conditions," he con
tinued, "to-work against their will,
you have re-established slavery.
Some people seem to think now is
the time to take advantage of the
working people, reduce wages and
break up their organizations and
under the open shop weaken or
destroy the unions."
In this connection, he warned
against "driving the bargain too
hard," asserting that a "day of
reckoning will come, and adding
that the organized workers are the
"greatest stabilizing force," in the
country. Referring to rail union
chiefs, he said they had prevented
strikes, which he said had been de
sired - by the union members gener
ally and he concluded with the ex
pression ot a hope for the time wnen
employers and employes would
solve their problems at ttrc confer
ence table.
