signers to the armistice are concerned.
Lireece is left to continue the war
against Turkej should such action be de
sired The plenipotentiaries met at the same
place where negotiations have been pro
ceeding for several dajs near the
Tchatalja lines. The allies made one or
two fresh proposals. These were trans
mitted to Constantinople, and a delay of
several hours was necessary while the
replj was being considered In the capital.
Greeki Remain Obdurate.
About 7 In the evening the response
came and the armistice was signed
It Is understood that the Greeks ad
! red to their original demands for tho
surrender of the Turkish troops In the
Aegean Islands of Chios and Mytllene
and the surrender of Janina, but these
were not conceded by Turkey.
The fact that Greece has not signed is
considered disquieting It is interpreted
n some quarters as meaning that hostil
ties will be continued between Greece
ind Turkej
Nothing has jet been decided as to the
permanent peace contention.

PUBLICITY LAW
MAYBEREPEALED
Bills Introduced in Both Houses
of Congress Point Out
Hardships.
The movement In Congrs to repeal
the provl'lons of the post-office appro
priation act Imposing publicity upon the
business affairs of newspapers has
gained considerable headwaj. On Mon
daj RepresentaUve De Forest of New
York Introduced In the House a bill
repealing this feature of the law, and
jesterday Senator SlcCumber of North
Dakota Introduced a similar measure In
the Senate.
Senator McCumber made H known
that he was actuated cntlrelj' by pro
tests which he had received from the
proprietors of small country newspa
pers He was satisfied, ho said, that
the legislation was Ill-advised, and that
it would work great hardship upon these
small country publications
The feature to which the country
papers object chlcflj Is the publication
In the papers of their mortgaged In
debtedness and other Information In re
gard to their business standing which
they contend will operate seriously to
their disadvantage
Senator McCumber, like a good many
other members of the Senate, hardly
was aware that such legislation had
been passed until It was called to his
attention after the adjournment of the
last session ot Congress Some of the
publicity features Imposed upon news.
papers wero slipped Into the bill while It
w as In conference, and w ere hardly con
sidered on the floor of the Senate
In the House also the impression
seems to be growing that some of the
features of the law are unjust and con
stitute a class discrimination against the
newspapers It is practically certain,
however, that Senator Bourne, chairman
of the Senate Post-office Committee, and
Senator Brlstow of Kansas, who are
said to have favored the legislation, will
oppose any effort to repeal It.
After bollcitor General Bullitt con
cluded his defense of the law as an at
tempt to regulate the malls, the attack
en It was resumed jesterday before the
United States Supreme Court, by At
torney James JI. Beck, counsel for the
Low Is Publishing Company, ot New
York.
He declared the law was an attempt
to pervert the powers granted the gov
ernment to accomplish unconstitutional
ends He also pointed out that there
has been an alarming growth of this
tendency in the last twenty years
Solicitor General Bullitt contended that
as Congress has the power to exclude
from the malls bad smelling articles. It
has the power to exclude newspapers
which did not comply with tne regula
tlons laid down Attornej Beck said
that this constituted nullification by In
