sel for the plaintiff marked to-day's
progress in the $1,000,000 libel suit
of Henry Ford against "The Chicago

Called Him "Anarchist"
Mr. Ford's complaint is that on June !
23, 1916, "The Chicago Tribune," in an !
editorial, injured him in his good name, j
credit and reputation; brought him
into public hatred, contempt and ridi- ;
cule, and injured him in his feelings, j
business and otherwise.
"The Tribune," ho alleges, did this
by calling him "an Anarchist," "an
ignorant idealist," "an anarchist
enemy of tho nation," and accusing
him of being "so incapable of thought
that he cannot see the ignominy of his
The first words of the suit, even be?
fore members of tho panel were called
into the jury box for examination, were
a clash. The four tables for the law?
yers had been placed in a long row,
with those for "Tho Tribune" lawyers
the more distant from tho jury box.
Defendant counsel promptly dragged
them nearer to the box and between
the Ford tables and the judge. Coun?
sel for Mr. Ford then complained that
in addressing the court "The Tribune"
attorneys were inaudible to the oppos?
ing side. There were r?verai sharp
exchanges, which the judge ended by
saving there would be a conference on
the subject later.
Move to Change Plea
Counsel for the Solomon News Com?
pany, of Detroit, which for technical
reasons was made co-defendant with
"The Tribune," gave notice of a motion
to change their plea from ignorance
that the papers they circulated con?
tained the alleged libel, to one of jus?
tification, which is tho plea made by
"The Tribune." Hearing on the mo?
tion wont over till morning, and
twelve men were called into the jury j
box. Two were excused forthwith, j
one because of fainting spells and the j
other because he could not be spared '
from his farm.
Each of the seven men quizzed he- I
fore adjournment grinned when asked !
if he was an anarchist.
The editorial on which the suit is ,
based was published by "Tho Tribune"
on June 23, 1916. It follows:
"Inquiry at the Henry Ford offices
in Detroit discloses the fact that em?
ployes of Ford who aro members of or j
recruits in tho National Guard will lose
their places. No provision will be
made for any one dependent on them. ;
Their wages will stop, their families
may get along in any fashion possible.
their positions will be iilied, and if
they como back safely and apply for
their jobs again they will be on the
same footing as any oilier applicants.
This is the rule for Ford employes
"Information was refused as to the
number of American soldiers unfor
t?nate enough to have Henry Ford as
an employer at this time, but at the
Detroit recruiting offices it was said
that about seventy-five men will pay ,
this price for their services to their

"Mr. Ford thus jiroves that he does ;
not believe in service to the nation in ,
the fashion a soldier must serve it.

To Get $20,000,000
Loan From Allies
Recognition of Omsk Gov?
ernment Evaded by Giv?
ing Money Direct to In?
ter - Allied Commission
New York Tribune
WASHINGTON, May 12.?The United
States and allied governments have de?
cided to lend to the interallied com?
mission administering the Trans-Siber?
ian Railroad $20,000,000 for operating
the line, it was made known at the
State Department to-day.
It has not been determined what pro?
portion of the loan each of the govern?
ments wil assume, but it is believed
that the United States, Japan and Great
Britain each will furnish $5,000,000 and
that France and Italy each will be in?
vited to supply $2,500,000.
By making the loan direct to the
interallied commission, the govern?
ments evade the question of recogni?
tion of the Omsk government. It was
deemed inadvisable, in the absence of
recognition, to make the loan to the
Omsk government, and the arrangement
agreed upon does not raise the question
of recognition in any sense.
The absence of guarantee excluded
participation by private bankers in
the loan. It was stated authoritative?
ly to-day that the loan will not bo
made as an investment, but to assure
the continued operations of the trans
Siberian line. It is thought that the
refunding of the loan will be re?

gratified by official news from Omsk,
which shows that the Omsk govern?
ment is exercising an even authority
over practically all of Siberia, and
that it is constantly improving its

It is planned that the presentation
of tho terms of peace shall take place
in the most beautiful apartment of the
old palace, located on the first floor
and approached by a grand staircase,
the walls of which are cmbiazoned with
royal devices. The fireplaces and ceil?
ings of the apartments also aro beauti?
fully decorated. Tapestries have been
brought from the national storehouse
to cover tho wall cases, which are filled
with remains of the mammoth and the
great elk that once roamed over
France. Two adjoining apartments also
are being cleared and a room devoted
to the famous collection of Gallic pot?
tery will be \ised as a cloakroom.
Two groups of near by villas have
been requisitioned for tho Austrian
and Hungarian delegates. They are
distinct, so that no communication
can pass between the two delegations
of the former dual empire. Jt still is
purposed to conduct the negotiations
separately, but, if possible, they will
be carried on simultaneously.
The French officials have become
embarrassed by a demand made by the
Austrian authorities that direct tele?
phone and telegraph communication be
accorded to the Austrian peace delega?
tion dining the negotiations, just as it
now is accorded the Germans.
The embarrassment arises from the
fact that the German peace delegates
are using the only wires available and
it is not considered probable that they
will agree to give up any of their
facilities to their former Austrian

Sew York Tribune
WASHINGTON, May 12? The fight
j against Senator Penrose, of Pennsyl
! vania, for chairman of the Finance
I Committee, and Senator Warren, of
I Wyoming, for head of the Appropria
i tions Committee, now seems to have
I dwindled to a mere pro forma opposi
j tion which will not go further than the
! party conference. Senator Borah, of
I Idaho, leader of the anti-Pcnrose move?
ment, still maintains that he will "not
vote for Penrose," but he will not say
that he will vote against him. It is
pointed out that by merely absenting
himself from the Senate during the
vote Senator Borah can make good his
It is believed that others of the Pro?
gressive group will adopt a similar
course in recording their opposition
to Penrose and Warren without com?
promising the party in the organiza?
tion of the Senate. In the event that
Senator Borah and others absent them?
selves when the vote on the two com?
mittee chairmanships is taken, Majority
Leader Lodge will arrange pairs with
the Democrats, it is predicted, so that
their absence will not affect the result.
Silent on Conference
The Progressive group had a confer?
ence here this afternoon, attended by
Senator George Moses, of New Hamp?
shire. At the conclusion of the con?
ference neither Senator Borah, in whose
office the conference was held, nor
Senator Moses would comment on
what transpired, except to say that
the conferences would be resumed to?
morrow, and that something concrete
was expected to develop at that time.
Senator Moses' attendance at the con?
ference was generally believed to be
in the interest of harmony.
The Progressive group, it is under?
stood, at to-morrow's meeting will
frame resolutions urging the selection
of either Senator Johnson, of Cali
| fornia, or Senator Lenroot, of Wis?
consin, as President pro tern of the
Senate. They will further urge Senator
Smoot, of Utah, for chairman of the
Appropriations Committee instead of
Senator Warren, it is understood.
Should this proposal be accepted as a
compromise arrangement, which is
considered unlikely, Senator Warren
might exercise his rights under seni?
ority to the chairmanshp of the Mili?
tary Affairs Committee. This would
develop a further embarrassing situa?
tion in that it would either involve a
further violation of the seniority
principle or the sidetracking of Sen?
ator Wadsworth, of New York, as
head of the Military Committee, a
place he has been conceded by practi?
cally unanimous consent. Senator
Wadsworth, however, will make no
claims which will embarrass a settle?
ment of the larger organization diffi?
culties, he said to-day.
Alternative Not Settled
Whether or not the Progressives
will present an alternative for the
Penrose difficulty is not clear.
It is further likely that the Borah
group will propose that Senator
Gronna, of North Dakota, bo given the
chairmanship of the Agricultural Com?
mittee instead of Senator Page, of
Vermont, who is in line for the place
under seniority. Senator Page, under
the seniority custom, is entitled to the |
chairmanship of either the Naval Af- j
fairs or the Agricultural Committee.
It is understood that the party leaders
have succeeded in securing the Ver?
mont Senator's waiver of his rights to
the naval chairmanship in favor of
Senator Poindexter, of Washington.
Whether or not they will be willing to
propose the suggested further waiver
of Senator Page's privileges under the
seniority principle is considered doubt?
ful, notwithstanding Senator Gronna's
admitted qualification for the place
' and the fact that he comes from the
Senator Curtis, of Kansas, it is
thought, will be rc?lected whip if he
consents to accept the place. He would
have the support of the conservatives
