Texas Senator's Farewell in
'Senate Is Heard by Crowd
iTHar Gives Him Its Earn
est Attention.
ASHURST SEEKS TO
DEFEND W. R. HEARST
Direct Legislation Assailed
as Enemy to Present Form
of Government and Bound
to Destroy Liberty.
WASHINGTON'. Jan. 2. Senator
Joseph W. Iiailev. of Texas, Ions one
of the picturesque figures and strik
ing speakers of the United States sen
ate, delivered today before a crowd
ed floor and galleries his final speech
as a member of that body. Within n
day or two his resignation will oa
laid before the senate and communi
cated to Goternor Colquitt, of Texas,
the expectation being that It. M John
ston, of Houston will be named to till
the term which would end on March
i.
Senator llailey's speech was an at
tack on the initiative and referendum
as institutions which would. If adopt
ed, bring about the overthrow of the
present system of American govern
ment. He ald they originated In a delre
of ."politicians' to escape responsibility
for their action on such petty ques
t ions as the location of state capital
and settlement of prohibiten fights.
JAs institutions of the government
lie declared, the schemes for direct
legislation by the teop!e wouKl con
cert the I'nlted States from a reput
llc to a democracy, and give control
Jnto the "hands of the unskilled. Idle
"-nndWYlcidiis."
-'JJU-. -Sitter Against. Hearst '
Ills attack on William 11. Hearst m
the course of his speech in which he
characterized Hearst as a "miserable
Jog" who had "hounded him," brought
Senator Ashurst, of Arizona to his
feet. He attempted to answer this
phase of llailey's attack upon radical
newspapers and magazines, but was
stopped by the Texas senator with
the remark that he could make his
reply outside.
Later Ashurst took the floor in his
own right and in the course of his de
Tense' of direct government paid tri
bute to Hearst as a loyal American
citizen.
The galleries were crowded to their
utmost capacity and long lines of Deo
ple, waited fn the corridors for an op
portunity to h,ear the Texan's fare
well addrecs In 'the senile. To the
mambershin of the senate were added
nearly seventy-five members of the
hnns who filled the bencnes ana
lined the wall along the floor of the
chamber.
Close -Attenticn Given
' Senator Bailey spoke for four hours.
Throughout he received the closest
attention from members and siectat
ors. As he concluded a wave of ap
plause swept through the galleries,
bringing a sharp reprimand from Sen
ator Gailinger. the presiding officer.
President-elect Wilson. although
quoted liberally by Senator Bailey in
defense of his declaration that direct
legislation Is not in accord with the
principles of American government,
received only this commendation from
the Texas senator-
If the man we have elected pres
ident ot the I'nlted States gives l!"
countrya sane and satisfactory ad
. ministration the republican party will
- never negotiate another candidate
for the presidency."
-Why should your" he continued,
advancing toward the republican
chamber "you did not carry but two
states thlB year, and those two of the
smallest. The contest four years
from now will be between us tnd the
t ..ithn Hn I Roosevelt! lias
taken some more, but thank God of
the kind we can afford'to loce."
Debs vs. Roosevelt
-Our conflict 'Is with Roosevelt.
If our president believes he can take
radical vote away from Roosevelt, le
is mistaken. The only man who can
do that, and he has not succeeded
well Is Eugene V. nabs. He is the
only man -ho can out-RooevelL
.Koosevelt In attracting the radical
vote What the democratic party
need's. Is not a radical, but a democrat-
iCzSchr'of Bailey's speech was ex
cernts and quotations from the writ
ings of the men who organized and
administered the early years of the
Amer'can government, and from stu
dent; who in later years discussed
H- -Z? It direct legislation. From

Considerable uneasine&i reigns In

Powers Will Probably Have
to Adjudicate Alatters Now
Disputed by the Several
Peace Delegates '
LONDON, England. Jan. 2. The
plenipotentiaries to the peace confer
ence enjoyed a day of relaxation. liv
en the meeting of the ambassadors U.
day was purely academic, as all
agreed that yesterday's advances by
Turkey changed the situation to such
an extent they must await correspond
ing Instructions from their respective
-governments.
The Turks continue to declare that
their concessions surpassed any. iog.
cal expectation, but . that now ' they
i-annui cede jn Inch more. On the
other hand the allies, with unanimous
oice and compact, front, maintain
that they would rather end the con
ference than renounce what they
claim is due them, by right "of the r
Wctories.
That the game Is being played iv
botli sides is evident. The Turks em
phaslze the enormous Importance ut
what they have ceded; which in reality
is only what they have lost and hat,
ndependently of the allies, not oeu
the owers would allow them o ri
conquer. The allies, on, the ot'ier
hand, belittle the Turkish concessious
and desire definitely to settle r.ott and
forever their differences with' the Ot
tpinan empire.
Where Trouble Lles
The real stumbling block Is 'Adrini
ojilft; .The ,proralsa. of agontUin i
specflng (Tie Aegeau'-islandsTs jiossi
bie. Some suggest that Turkey cede
them to the powers, which ran decide
their fate. It is recalled that such .1
course has been taken on other oc
casions, presenting even more dini
cullies than the present one. For In
stance, in the war of 1S6C between
Italy and Austria. Austria, although
victorious, was induced to cede tne
Venetian provinces to France, which
transferred them to Italy. The sup
porters ot this plan hint that Turkey
might even cede the islands O the
allies, as practically has been done,
nitli Albania, on condition that the
powers pledge themselves to claim,
as in the case ot Albania, a .-Ight to
itcide the btatus of the Aegean Arch
ipelago. Up to the Powers
The struggle will not be bitter be
tween the Turks and allies, the lonn
er threatening to appeal to the tribun
al of Europe and the latter threaten
ing to resume the war. It is expecte I,
however, that rel'ef from this at tui
tion may result from a meeting of Hie
ambassadors to whotc Judgment prol
ably both Turket and the allies wi'l
submit. If they decide unanimously
what the fate of the Islands must be.
The iiowcrs are particularly con
cerned over this (piestion because
some of the lslanls. namely Samo
thrace, liubros, Imnos and Tenedo,
are of international lniortance, com
manding the entrance to the.ardanel-
les. while Mitylene and Chios bar the
entrance to the gulf of Smyrna. The
rest of the Islands' are still In .ho
hands of Italy which occupied thm
during the war with Turkey.
