COURT REPORTERS KICK.
There is a big light on to prevent
tho i issagc by the legislature of
Houso Bill No. 12G, which places tho
decision of tho appointment of court
reporters in tho hands of the probate
Judge Henry Horner of the Probate
court, declared ho had no concern
nbout whether tho bill becamo a law,
in which case Judge Horner would bo
given the authority to select tho Pro-
bate court reportors.
"I don't 'care whether tho bill Is
passed or not," said tho Judgo. "All
that I want Is to have this tlresorao
scrapping over feus by persons con
ncctcd with tho Probate- court dono
away with. If wo are to havo continu
ous bickering over court foes who is
to get them and nil that I know thcro
will not bo much satisfactory work
"It's entirely Immaterial to me
whether I appoint tho Probalo court
reporters or somo other ofllclal makes
tho selection. What I want chiefly is
to see tho tangle straightened out."
"Tho county will loso between $12,
000 and $15,000 In Probato court fees
if tho bill under discussion Is passed,"
warned John P. Dovlne, clork of tho
Cook County Probato court. "Tho bill
says tho court reporters shall got tho
fees. I want tho county to get tno
fees and pay tho reporters u straight
'Tho existing law is better than tho
one beforo tho legislature nov," said
Dovlne. "At present nn attorney can
bring to tho court his prlvnto stenogra
pher, It ho thinks sho's capahlo of
taking down tho court records. Under
tho proposed bill tho Judgo of tho
court would appoint tho reportors.
And the olllco of tho Probato court clerk
would become a collection agency for
these prlvato stenographic agencies
that do court reporting."
Mr. Dovlne recently offered nn
amendment to Houso Bill 120, which
provided that tho Probato court clerk
should appoint tho court reporters.
All fees should then go to tho county
by way of the clork'H olllco, anil tho
stonographors would bo paid monthly
salaries. Tho amendment failed to
pass tho Houso.
For tho proof of holrshlp a fee of $2
Is now charged, and for proof of will,
$5. Mr. Dovlno estimated today near
ly $15,000 was lost to tho county an
nually becauso those fees went to pri
vate shorthand agonclos.
"I talked yesterday with a number
of legislators at Springfield," addod
Mr. Devlno. "They woro surpriseu
when I told thorn how tho county
would loso inonoy If tho hill woro
passed; they said thoy hadn't known
tho real facts In tho caso. Tho bill Is
now In tho third reading. If it does
pass tho Houso, it will find strong op
position In tho Sonnto.
"Thoro Is no reason why these court
fees shouldn't go Into tho county funds
Instead of into tho pockets or prlvato

adopt n qualifying resolution or resolutions making absolutely clear, by remov
ing any possible ambiguity, the determination of this country to stnnd by tho
Monroe doctrine and never to permit it or Immigration questions to bo subject
to foreign interpretation.
CARRANZA AND OUTLAWED MEXICO
Failure of the allied towcrs to
Invite Mexico to participate In the con
ference of neutrals at Paris has
aroused President Ciirinimi to bitter
resentment, which 1ms been enhanced
by the Incorporation of recognition of
' tho Monroe doctrine In the covenant
of the league of nations without con
sultation with Mexico.
An ofllclal Mexican statement de
dure that thn Mexican government
"hns not recognized, nor will it rec
ognize, the Monroe doctrine or uny
other which may, attack the sovereign
independence of Mexico."
Chicago business men who recent
ly returned from a survey of condi
tions In the interior of Mexico nro

that the pence conference, by clnss

U. S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
The chamber of conunerco of tho
United Stutes, through n i-coro of
speakers nnd halt as innny coinmltteo
repoits, has gone on record as op
posed to government ownership, but In
fuvor of government control. It de
nounces niiinufucturern who seek to
prolong wnr profits, urges fair dealing
with labor, and predicts "a rainbow
of greater prosperity" t tho end of
tho readjustment period.
President Harry A. Wheeler, In
connection with high prices, says that
If capital Is taking nn abnormal profit,
"labor has an equal right to demand
nn abnormal wage, and the public will
bo the sufferer."
"Labor," ho says, "must havo a
Just return for Its labor. I must cau
tion you ngalnst tho passive accept
ance or that piluclplf. If It is right, It
must bo inmle effective In evidence of
your good faith, mid us a promise of
hotter days iiIkiiiI for the Million's
tollers. The self-Interest nt iu capitalist must not ho permitted to obstruct
thrt bpeedy leadjiisiiiu'iu of ccuioiiilc conditions"
Washington ndvlces nro that the
attitude or Republican United States
senntow who have been nt homo con
sulting their constituents on the
league of nntlons Is fairly summed up
by Senntor Sherman of Illinois, who
"The lenguo has been Improved
somewhat, but not sulllclently to justi
fy me in voting for It."
In the meantime the Republican
senators will probably refrain from
airing their views until n conference
has been held.
A canvass of the attitude of tho Re
publican senators shows Hint 33 are
against the covenant, ten nro doubtful
nnd six support It. Another estlmnte
made public by the League to Enforce
Peace lists 04 senators for It, 20
