YENIZELOS LIKENED TO CLEMENCEAU Premier of Greece Is Worthy Idol of Countrymen Washington, D. C, Aug. 25. Not so conspicuous at the peace conference while the treaty with Germany fo cused the world's attention, but emerging into the1 limelight now that Balkan problems are in the fore front, is Premier Venizelos of Greece. The career of this "Greek Clemen ceau," reckoned among the foremost statesmen of Europe, is described in a bulletin from the National Geo graphic society, based on a commun ication from George Higgins Moses, as follows: "Eleutherios Venizelos, is a Greek of the Greeks, with a long line of distinguished Hellenic ancestry. Edu cated at the University of Athens and in Switzerland, he established himself as an attorney in Crete, and was active in the revolution move ments which brought on the Greco Turkish war of 18 97. , 9 "Upon the establishment of the higti commissioner's regime -in Crete, Venizelos and Prince George were not in accord, and the prince's with drawal from the island followed an incident which led the court party 'in Athens to regard Venizelos as an arch-revolutionary and to render his task the more difficult. "The Greek people, however, have never wavered in their support of him. He is their idol and he jus tified their idolatry. Summoned to the prime ministry much earlier than he had believed himself ready for uch power, and knowing full well that he owed his preferment in a large measure to the wishes of the old political leaders, who had con ceived the notion of choking him to death with power, he confounded his enemies, amazed his friends and jus tified all the fond hopes of the teople, who regard him as the em bodiment' of their future and who haye never ceased to hail him as the savior of Hellenism. "His ministry was forced to appeal ' to the electorate once by his own wish to test Greek public opinion and once because the constitutional limit had run against his government. In each case he was swept back into of fice with -a majority of cumbersome proportions and he has rightly counted himself as a man with a mandate to reorganize Greece. "Under his guidance the constitu tion has been revised, the chamber has been. liberated and set in the way of constructive legislation, while the electorate has been given a wider privilege of choice of their represen tatives. The courts have been given tenure and removed from political control. "The ministries have been reorgan ized and purged and the ci vjf service has been set upon a merit basis. Agri culture and commerce have been taken under the charge of a new ministry. Municipalities have been granted new rights and charged with new duties; and a general quickening and efficiency have been infused into all branches of the administration." BARN BURNS, LOSS $8,000.

Bridgeport, Aug. 25. Members of the Workers International Industrial union who are among the former em ployes of the Columbia Graphophono company today in mass meeting voted not to endorse the letter drafted to re presentea to mc management ask ing the company not to leave Bridge port. These former strikers number possibly 2,000. The others, or about 4,000. arc affiliated with the Federa-, tion of Labor. They will meet later in the day and are expected to en dorse the letter. Divided action, on the part, of the former strikers, in the opinion of some labor leaders, makes uncertain the attitude of the company on the question of removal of the plant. It had been understood that the com pany's answer to the request of the former employes was to be deter mined by the latler's vote in mass meeting. The employes are in two factions, however, and if those of tho Industrial union insist upon a refusal to endorse a compromise agreement, it may mean that the plant doors will remain closed.
