SANTO. DOMINGO'S PRESIDENT
FIRED FOR LAW VIOLATION
In Santo Domingo the inhabitants
seem to take their national consti
tution seriously. Witness that Gen.
Jean I. Jiminez, its president, has
been fired because he violated a sec
tion of the national charter.
Jiminez is. the center of the state
of rebellion in the little republic that
drew the U. S. S. Prairie and a com
pany of marines to the scene.
SENATORS BLOCK ACTION ON
BRANDEIS APPOINTMENT
Washington, May 9. Just as the
senate judiciary committee, urged to
action by a letter from President
Wilson, prepared to ballot on the
confirmation of Louis D. Brandeis' as
justice of the supreme court two
senators objected. As a result ac
tion which seemed near again was
definitely postponed.
Who the senators were, members
of uie comuiittee would not say. It ,
was understood Sen. Shields of Ten
nessee, who attended his first meet
ing of the committee in months, was
the chief objector.
It was learned that the president's
letter in which he urged quick ac
tion on Brandeis was received with
a spirit of resentment by the com
mittee. When the final break came
friends of Brandeis failed even in
getting an agreement to vote at any
definite future date.
