Washington. Nov. 4. President "Wil

back to their owners January 1, 1920,
even if Congress has not completed its
programme of railroad legislation by
that time. Walker D. Hlnes, Director
General of Railroads, Informed Sena

Mr. Hlnes was so emphatic In speak
ing of the President's plans that Sena
tor Cummins has determined to call
the committee to-morrow or Thursday
to consider a programme of temporary
legislation that will tide the roods over
until a comprehensive permanent
measure can be agreed to by both
houses. There is such wide variance
already apparent between the Senate
and House committees on Important
points that it Is doubtful if the com
plete railroad bill can be passed by

Mr. Hlnes, Senator Cummins has de
cided that Congress mint not take a re
cess between the special and the regular
session. Ha plans to keep the Senate at
work on the railroad bill as soon as
ihe peace treaty is disposed of.
The temporary legislation to bo pro
posed probably will deal mainly with
i all road finances and rates, which will
be the big problem Immediately upon the
return of the roads. The questions of a
new transportation board, adjustment
of labor troubles, regulation of water
carriers, the funding of the amount In

permanent legislation that will follow,
The plan to continue the guaranteed re

Mr, Hlnes did not go Into details as
to what Congress should do, but simply
warned that the President Is determined

Paris. Nov. 4. That the peace treaty
with Germany will go Into effect about
November 20 was foreshadowed by an
announcement following to-day's meet
ing ot the Supremo Council that all
plebiscite and delimitation commis
sions would meet here November 10
for organization purposes.
The purpose of this is to have the
commissions fully organized and pre
pared to assume authority in their re
spective districts on the day the peace
treaty becomes effective. The Com
missioners themselves will be on the
ground that day In Silesia, Memel,
Schleawlg and Teschen to' take over
the authority of the Germans, and will
be supported by troops of the Allies.
French 1 Command.
Only the ratifying Powers will be
represented at the organization of
these commissions on November 10,
and the occupying forces will be Brit
ish, French and Italian, unless by that
time the United States has ratified and
her reservations have been accepted.
In which event America will partici
pate. The Supreme Council has decided for
mally that the forces of the Allies in
Upper Silesia shall be commanded by a
French General, when the people decide
by ballot whether this Important mining
district Is to belong to Poland or Ger
many. It Is understood that the council pre
fers an American to head the Teschen
commission, where the claims of Poland
and Czecho-Slovakla will he decided.
Until ratification ot the treaty by the
United States a Frenchman will be
chairman of this commission. An Eng
lishman will be chairman for the Allen
steln district of Bast IVuasla and an
Italian for the Marlenwerder district of
2VMd for Caution Been.
The extent and character of the Amer
ican reservations remain the subject of
the greatest Interest here because It has
been conceded that before America cjin
participate the other Powers must make
clear their attitude toward whatever
reservations are adopted. With the
question In America so near a decision,
diplomats here are maintaining a dis
creet silence on the subject, preferring to
wait until they know what the stand of
the United States actually Is.
No better evidence could be had for
the necessity of weariness by the United
States In protecting Its own Interests In
every paragraph of the covenant of the
League ot Nations than Is supplied by
the manoeuvres In the Rumanian-Hungarian
situation. Here European diplo
macy is seen In full action.
Yesterday's note to Rumania, for ex
ample. Is attributed again by several
French newspapers close to tho Foreign
Office to American, hostility and com
mercial greed, despite the fact, as the
Americans pointed out to-day, that Ue

Italians, Rumanians and many of the

LouisviLin . Ky., Nov. 4. Edwin
Porch Morrow was elected Governor
of Kentucky to-day by a majority that
may reach 25.000. Certainly it-wilt be no
less than 15,000. He Is tho third Re
publican Governor of this State, Govs.
Eradley and Wlllson being the only
other Republicans to enjoy the honor.
Mr. Morrow's opponent was Gov.
James D. Black, who ascended to the
rbfflce from the LIeut.-Governorshlp
when Gov. Augustus Stanley was sent
to the United States -Senate.
Mr. Morrow's election Is conceded to
be a signal, defeat of the policies of the
Wilson administration. Mr. Black ran
on a straight Democratic platform which
embraced the League of Nations as the
President fetched It from Europe. Mr.
Morrow's platform avoided reference to
national matters except Insofar as a
general advocacy of rigid American
principles Is concerned. The victorious
Republican candidate eschewed refer
ences to the prohibition amendment and
virtually all International matters. He
confined .himself to local and domestic
problems and his success was conceded
even by Democrats many days before his
Mr. Morrow's victory marks the
greatest Republican triumph this State
has known. Inasmuch as he owes his
election to the votes of many young
men, who by all their traditions and
training should be Democrats, but who
refused to vote for Mr. Black and his
sponsor. Senator Stanley.
Mr. Morrow was defeated for the Gov
ernorship four years ago by Mr. Stan
ley, but the latter's majority only was
431 votes. Due to the Kentucky elec
tions law, which Mr. Morrow promises
to change, Mr. Stanley's victory could
not be contested br Mr. Morrow.
Mr. Morrow's election Is looked upon
as more than a purely local matter.
j It Is recognised as n break In the erst
while Bolldly Democratic Soutn and a
forecast of other defections from Democ
racy In the South. Missouri promises
to follow Kentucky's example. Arkansas
Is expected to elect a few Republicans
to office. Neither of those States goes to
the polls until 1S20, however.
The Republican platform on which Mr.
Morrow ran advocates woman suffrage
among oth'er things that have failed of
Kentucky's recognition. And although
Mr. Morrow avoided the prohibition Is

Blow to Radicalism.

Boston, . Nov. 4. Massachusetts
ranged Itself overwhelmingly in sup
port of tto "law and order" platform
on which Gov. Calvin Coolldge, Repub
lican, sought reelection to-day and
swept him back Into office, together
with 'the entire Republican State ticket
At a late hour It was estimated that
his majority over Richard II. Long, his
Democratic opponent, would be ap
proximately 125,000. It was tho greatest
political landslide the Bay State has
known in many years.
Gov. Ccolldge appealed directly lo
the people to support organized Gov
ernment. His triumph Is generally In
terpreted as a tremendous blow to Bol
jhevlsm and radicalism in tho labor
movement, not only In Massachusetts
but throughout the country. Gov.
Coolldge: was specifically attacked by
Long for his uncompromising attitude
'owsrd the striking Boston policemen
ast September and tho strike became
at once the principal Issue In tho cam
paign. Tho voterB yesterday utterly
repudiated the action of tho policemen
la refusing to remain on duty when
recognition of their union was with
held by the constituted authorities.
The surprising strength developed
by Gov. Coolldge was general through
out the State, even In the manufactur
ing cities, where Long believed that he
would have his strongest support.
Even In Boston, one of the Demo
cratic strongholds of the country, Gov.
Coolldge was close upoa the heels of
his adversary as majorities go here. The
nominal Democratic majority In the city
Is 30,000, but Long made pre-election
claims that he would carry It by 40,000.
With only two of the 21S precincts
missing, the count showed to-nlglH that
Long had received 46,396 votes and that
(JooUdge had 41,64 couated In his be
half, a majority for Long of slightly
more than 5,000. It has been years
since Boston has made such a strong
Republican showing as this.
Complete unofficial returns from the
1.193 precincts throughout the State gave
Coolldge a total of 317,191 and Loag
193,291, a majority of 123,900, but the
Coolldge supporters assert that the ma
jority, on the corrected and official re
turns, will go to 125,000 at least and per
haps 130,000. The vote was tho heavi
est cast In years In a, State election.
The greatest blow to the Democrats
was In their failure to carry the man
ufacturing cities. Because of Longs
claim that he was championing the cause
of labor It was felt generally that he
would show pronounced strength In
these centres. On the contrary, Coolldge
practically carried all. Lynn was the
only city ot Importance outside of Bos
ton which did not assist in the crushing
ot the Democratic candidate. Even In
Lynn Long's majority was only a few
hundred out of almost 20,000 votes cast
Long admitted his defeat "by 160,000"
even before the polls were cloned In come
of the cities, where he expected the
strongest support. The early returns
showed a tremendous falling oft In the
Democratic vote. In comparison with
last year, and corresponding gains by
Gov. Coolldge. Longs admission ot de
feat came after returns were received
from the mill city of New Bedford. His
loss of strength among the workers was
The Republican ticket which was

Lieutenant-Governor, Channlng II.
Secretary ot State, Albert P, Langtry
Treasurer, Fred J. Burrell.
Auditor, Alonzo B. Cook (reelected),
Attorney-General, J. Weston Allen.
The striking policemen 'and telephone
girls were Long's strongest supporters.
During the campaign the policemen toured
the State In automobiles and attacked
the Governor bitterly for discharging
them, asserting that his action was "a
blow at organized labor." Notwithstand

istered to the principles he advanced

It was found that the voters were

The estimate of a majority of 76,000
for the prohibition amendments was
made at Columbus late to-nlght by Sec
retary of State Smith, who asserted that
the drys made general gains throughout
the State, although In some of tho
larger cities the wets had mustered more
votes than they did when Ohio "was made

ot the manufacturing cities, but the drys
swept the rural sections clean and also
added to their count of a year ago In
Cincinnati and In Columbus.

elated by the victory at the polls to

State Senate Seats and 31
The returns from Now Jersey at an
early hour this morning Indicated tho
election of Edward I. Edwards as
Governor over his Republican oppo
nent, Newton A. K. Bugbee, State
Comptroller. However, the Republi
cans still claim a victory for Bugbee,
although the figures seemingly showed
a plurality of 6,000 for Edwards.
At 1 o'clock 1,511 districts out of
2,011 in the State gave Bugbeo 149,930
and Edwards 144,803. The swing was
then going to Edwards, the previous
3,000 votes showing a loss of 30 per
district for Bugbee, with about one
half of tho votes In Hudson county,
Jersey's Gibraltar of democracy, still
to bo heard from. At that hour Hud
son county was looming up with a
possible Democratic plurality of '27,000,
with Essex, a Republican county, trail
ing' along with an Edwards i plurality
of 7,000 pr 8,000.
The twisting of things political In New
Jersey was due, politicians In both par.
ties agreed, to the prohibition Issue,
which popped up In the campaign at an
early stage. Opposition to the Eigh

ly popular, especially In the larger cities
of the State, notably Trenton, the Re
publican home town of Bugbee ; Newark,
where lives James R. Nugent, whom Ed
wards defeated for the Gubernatorial
nomination, and Jersey City, the very
wet home town of Edwards.
The Republicans elected seven of nine
members of the State Senate and prob
ably thirty-two members of the House

twenty-eight members. This Is a gain
of two seats.
