Customs men assigned to the
We*t Fifty-fifth Street pivr.
where the Fort St. George, of the
Furness Bermuda Line, docked
yesterday, had a hunch when they
saw 133 of the Ml passengers
dehsrking with bulging golf bags.
This was an unusual number of
such receptacles, and they were
rather bulkier than ordinary.
In a short time there were
mashies. brassies, drivers, mid
irons and putters spread all over
the pier, but nary a bag con?
tained a bottle. There is good
golfing weather in the Bermudas
just now, and plenty to do at the

False Statement Attribut?
ed to Lincoln U Used
in Attack on Catholic??
Governor Ben Olcott of Oregon, who,
with Mrs. Olcott, is at the Prince
(.ei>rge Hotel, en route to the Gov?
ernors' conic? c. at White Sulphur ',
S'ring?. W. .a., denounced the Ku !
Klux Klan yesterday as a menace to
American ideals and laws and cau?
tion? d New Yorker? against regarding
too lightly the danger of Klan activi?
ties here.
"There should be no miitake about
the Intention? and power of this or- ?
gsnlzstion," si Governor Olcott. "The |
Ku-Klux Kltn put through s school1
lsw in Oregon ?nd is planning to push
th? ?am? legislation through tn every
stats In ths 1'nion. This law make?
compslsory attendance at a public
school by every child in the ?t?te be.
tween the ages of eight and sixteen.
The legiflstioii is aim, d directly at the
Roman Catholic school?, but it will
apply s? well ts ?H private school? at?
tended by children of the wealthy.
Charge? Masonic Backing
"A penalty i? provided for violation
of this l?w nu?] snaths? far efTorts to
ev-sd? it by parents who send children
to other state? t^ be educated. If the
law become? effective no child in Ore
gon ?rill be permitted to attend sny but
public schools. The originators of the
law were a ?mall group of Scottish/
Rite Mason?. They obtained a suffi?
cient number of signatures to have It
| put on the ballot and it received a
substantial majority.
"V. hen the Klan began operations In
i Oregon we did not think it could thrive
there. Most resident? of Oregon are
sciants of ?id pioncara. The Kl?n
ha? been at work in Oregon about two
year?. In n very short time it cap?
tured the state politically. 1 believe
this organization constitutes the great?
est menace to American institutions
now extant. The Ku-Klux stands for
tine things on paper, hut in practice it
divide? the public into hostile group?
arrayed against eaeh other on religious
and racial grounds."
Governor Olcott said he had brought
to the attention of Attorney General
Daugherty many cases of Klan lawless?
ness, but had 1>een advised that there
appeared no ground for Federal Inter?
vention. These ware instances in which
the Klan is alleged to have punished
person? charged by the organization
with offenses against the community.
Jurors (.et Propaganda
Members of the Board of Aldermen
received yesterday anonymous commu?
nications mimeographed on plain pa?
per, in which the Ku-Klux Klsn is de?
fended. The cption under which th?:
pamphlet appears reads: "Keep Amer?
ica Protestant." Identical papers were
sent to members of both grand juries,
charged with the duty of investigating
the Klan. In pait, the pamphlet
"Mayor Hylan's order to the police
to 'hunt down Klansmen and treat
them a? you would Red? and homb
thrower?' is proof that the Roman
Catholic hierarchy believes itself now
strong enough to institute its diaboli?
cal system of inquisition on America.
Rome has overlooked th? fact that
there are T'.'.OOo.riOO or more Protes?
tants in the United States, and that
once they are ?wake to the Papal con?
spiracy they will rise en masse and
drive every alien Papist from our
shores. Abraham Lincoln prophe?ied
this event Mxty years ago in the?e
" 'I see a dark cloud on our horizon.
That dark cloud is coming from Rome.
I*, will rise and increase until its flank?
will be torn by a flash of lightning fol?
lowed by a fearful peal of thunder.
Then a cyclone, such a? the world has
never seen, will pas? over this country,
spreading ruin and desolation from the
North to the South. After it is over
there will be long days of peace and
prosperity, for Popsry, with it? Jesuit?
snd merciless inquisition, will be for?
ever swept sway from our country.'"
Hen? Lincoln Said It
From an authority on Lincolniana
The Tribune learned that this alleged
quotation probably was found in ? book
written abo saris?
Chiniquy, entitled "Forty Years in the
Church of Rome." The Rev. Mr. Chin
iquv, a former priest of the Roman
Catholic Church in Montreal, was a
Presbyterian clergyman in Kankakee,
III., and.engaged in litigation with the
Roman Catholic Bishop of Chicago
when he met Lincoln and retained him
as counsel.
Lincoln defended him successfully
from a charge of per]ury made by the
Catholic prelate and a friendship
sprang up between them which led Mr.
Chiniquy to visit Lincoln in the White
House several time?. In hi? book are
many page? devoted to hi* alleged con?
versation? with Lincoln at such times.
These conversations are ignored by his?
torians, however, oxcept when cor?
roborated by other evidence, which Is
not the case in this?, instance.

Colonel Huston always ha? be?

their national commander. II
said at the time that if he found bus

Colonel Huston was one of th

He had always been a great baseball

Cincinnati. When h? returned to th*
I'nited States he formed a close friend?
ship with John J. MeGraw, of the
Giants, whom he had met while that
club was touring the island sunn- year.?
earlier. Huston made several spring
trips to Martin. Tex., with MeGraw
and it was McGiaw who brough'
neis Huston and Ruppert together in
the purchase of the Yankees from
Frank J. Farrell in the spring of 1915.
When the United S'ates declarea war
on Germany in Itl? th is retired army
captain immediately volunteered hi?
services. From Cincinnati and Detroit
he helped recruit the 16th Regiment
of Engineers, with which he sailed to
France the following July as captain
of Company A. His work in building
railroads up to ths front lines gsined
him quick recognition snd promotion
and citation by General John Pershing.

If Allies Stand Out Against His Plan
Special Cable to The Tribune
.'opyrlthl. Mil. N?w York Tritrun? lite
PARIS, Dec. 11.?Premier Poincare ia in danger of falltag wit Inn
a month, it wu indicated to-night, unless some dfctsion is rea. h.-.l
within that time forecaating Allied assent to French military measure?
against Germany, or at least indicating* some d.-ftnito Allied agreement.
Aa a result of his trip to the conference of premiers at I?ndon,
which haa now gone over to January 2 without reaching any decision
us to German reparations or inter-Allied d?lits, the political position of
the French Premier at home has been seriously weakened.
The failure of the premiers to agree means that Poincare haa
failed to put over with the Allies the program that his adherent? in
Franco advocate with reapext to Germany. Mis inability to obtain
Allied agreement to the French seizure of the Ruhr is being referrc?!
to here to-night aa evidence of lack of strength.
If Premier Poincare should fall, President Millerand's best chance
of forming a Cabinet would seem to lie with Raoul Peret, the present
President of th? Chambar of Deputies.

day's session of the Progressive Con?
gress her? to-day was marked b\
?lashes among the delegates, the first
coming on ths question uf the right
of delegates from local unions to sit
snd the second on the attempt of the
Workers I'arty of America to obtain
entrnnce to the meeting. Th? two
breaks sufficed to make it el.-ar that
the big task in hand obtaining har
mony among the various elements -
would not be essily accomplish,
also sufficed to make clear that
would be little steam rolling by the
leaders, who are eager to ?ee that
their program goes throught without
undue friction.
It also forecast a hard fight on the
quotlgn of a third party and some
chance that the -convention migh*
t-j rut loose from the old party and
go it alome. This will be avert,-,I if
tho moving spirits at the convention
esn help It, but there is undoubtedly
a strong group present who will fight
for th? third party.
The episode of the Workers' party
credential? was the spectacular event
of the initial session. Th? credentials
committee was finishing its report with
no reference to any Workers' party
delegates, when C. E. Ri^thenberg, who
had announced in the forenoon that he
had presented requests for himself and
three other men?William V. Dunne,
I Butt?, Mont.; Caleb H?rri?on, <
? land, and Ludwig Lore, editor of '
Zeitung" of .Vew York, ?nd recently
fardoned by Governor Len Small of
lllnois rose to ask what action had
been taken on these delegates.
"We haw received no such creden?
tials," th? committee reported.
At this point Edward Keating, a
member of the National Commit?.
the conference and editor of "I-sbor"
of Washington, stepped to the front of
the platform.
"I hop? we fee? this issue right
1 ?tow," Mr. K??tlng said. "Lets hsve
? no camouflage of this. There 1? no
place in a convention of honest trade
unionists for men of thi? stamp

This denunciation of the Worker?'
party of America and other radical
partie? brought a storm of disapproval
from the gallery. Demand? that the
convention go on record without equiv?
ocation against the communists re
, suited in the adjournment shortly
after litMe had been aecomr.
Action taken by th? leaders at the
Convention the Arst day made it clear
that the program is as follows:
That the primary laws be liberalised
as much ?? possible through ?t?te leg?
islatures, and that efforts to repeal the
direct primary laws, when they are
satisfactory, be fought to th? finish.
Th?t, wherever possible, all primary
laws be smended to go into the pri
manes without declaration of party,
so that the liberals may see that at
least one liberal Is nominated by one
of the parties. Then that the strength
of the conference be thrown behind
that candidate.
That the conference harmoniously
agre? to use present organizations of
workers and farmers throughout th?
country in making their political fight.

Pressed to define Italy's attitude In
?he os? h occupation of th?
Ruhr, the Ksscisti Premier shrugged
his ?boulders and said that occupation
waa still far from being an accom?
plished fact. The uuestion of the
Ruhr, however, he indicated, was the
chief point of difference between the
Italian and French views, Italy not
being prepared to go to the length

Mussolini made no referenc? to th?

?tic than mo?t regarding th?
