LONDON, Feb. 12. "Where
has President Wilson disap
peared to?" is the question to
which the Evening Star demands
an answer to-day. The newspa
per says that if these wore the
uays of the Arabian Nights, in
stead of the prosaic twentieth
century, it might well be believed
that his death was being con
cealed for reasons of state.
The Star remarks that It is one
of the queer anomalies of Repup
lican government that a Presi
dent can practically disappear
from public sight so easily. ,

1 statement of Mr. Hartshorn to-day and
, that In the speech of W. Lunn. Lnhnr
member from Kothwell, in the House of
Commons last night, the gravity of tho
situation must not bo overexnggerated.
The radical polloy outlined by Mr.
Hartshorn Indicated that there was a
possibility of the failure of the Labor
plan, for three reasons. They are:
1. The meeting of the miners' federa
tion executives holds the possibility that
tho miners .henselvea will repudiate
these executives' direction of affairs and
adhere to the political programme of the
Labor party, although the consensus
nerc is tnai tnis is improbable. Mr.
Hartshorn and .Mr. Lunn represent not
only the radical coal miners but Mir.

2. Tho meeting of the Trades rtninn
Congress, which the miners demand be
called, may not support the strike.
3. The result of the miners' own haunt
ing, which, after all, may bo against
the strike.
Indeed, the two labor soeecheti in.t
night, one by William Brace, president
of the South Wales Miners' Federation
and the other by Mr. Lunn, Indicated
that Labor Itself wob facing a critical
If the preliminaries to the coal strike
do not determine whether Labor lines up
with the coalitionists, hoping eventually
for an Increase In wages as an alterna
tive. At the tune of the negotiations
last summer the brotherhoods, at the re
quest of the President, did not press for
higher wages. The railroad workers
base their pleas for an advance In wages
now on the increase ln the coat of living
since the last general wage raise In 1918.

tho law forbids It, and ln tho second

Clov. Allen declared that Ills State's

dressing tho Chicago Har Association
he described the functions and already

said that what this court Is doing for

"Already we have seven cases on the

work Is going on as usual.
"Tills court Is founded upon the prin
ciple that government should have the
same power to protect society against
the ruthless offences of an industrial
strike that It has to protect against rec
ognized crime."
Poyefrior Allen said that the court had
tho power to determine all Industrial
rontroversiei -which might "threaten to

of such Industries as those nffcetlng

Washington, Feb. 12. Republican
leaders of the Senate and House ln
conference to-day virtually determined
to Insist on the postponement for one
or two years, or until tho present large
jovernment expenditures "can be re
duced, of all legislation providing for
tho granting of bonuses or other aid
to service men. It ls expected similar
action will be taken on the question of
universal military training because of
tho present need for" economy.
The attitude of the Kepublldans Is
not one of hostility toward' the propo
sition, It was empnasizett, uui me
unanimous belief that the state of(
governmental finances absolutely pro
hibits any legislation along this line
at present.
Iteports that tho American Legion's
representatives are planning to press
next week their demands for a soldier
bonus and tho approval of universal mil
itary training were partly responslDie
for tho action to-day. Llkcwlco there
nro many members of both parties who
havo been urging this legislation,' as
shown by tho numDer of bills Intro
duced. The position of the Republican lead
ers will be presented to the Legion rep
resentatives, and because of the present
financial situation confidence Is ex
pressed on both sides of the Capitol that
the service men will agree to the post
ponement, Inasmuch as a virtual pledgo
will ba given to grant the aid la tho
form of a cash or bond bonus ornoans
to buy farms and homes when the
Treasury Is hi position to 3tand the ap

Washington, Feb. 12. Aa a result
of tho disposition of the Administra
tion Democrats to regard tho proposed
new reservation to Artlclo X. of tho
Lcnguo of Nations covenant as not a
real effort to compromise, and the fail
ure of Senator Lodge (MasB.), the Re?
publican leader, to find the necessary
sixty-four votes for Its adoption, there
was a noticeable diminution to-day in
tho feeling of optimism over the out
come of the treaty fight.
Senator Hitchcock (Neb.), tho act
ing Democratic lender, expressed his
feelings with unusual frankness thin
afternoon. He said ho was strongly
disposed to leave to the Republicans

of the situation, pointing out that thoy

Senators Walsh (Mon.) and Hitch

and later talked frankly to Interview

would accept, as a basts of settlement,

the two-thirds majority.
The report circulated through the Sen

himself In favor of the new Article X.
reservation, and had agreed to present It
to Democrats In the effort to enlist
enough of them to put It through. But
Senator Underwood denied It.
"The facfls," he said, ''that I have
been for two days so b'my with appro
priation matters that I have not kept up
with treaty doings. It Is.true that I have
talked to sorne on our side, but not on
the basis of an effort to produce votes.
I understand, however, that some polls
are being made on both sides of tha
chamber; not, I believe, with regard to
any particular form of reservation, but
to determine If It Is possible to bring tho
necessary number of Senators together
on some basis to get ratification."

The fact is admitted that the Lodge
reservations, If they come before the

November, will get moro Democratic
support than ever before. That does not
mean that they will have a chance to Una

ocrats who would be willing to accept
the Lodge formula admit that It has no
chance of adoption. There are distinct
lines of cleavage among the Democrat
which make unification of the necesaarv
number on that aide difficult.
