to-day before the Senate sub-commlt-tce
investigating tho paper scarcity.
Mr. Munsey told the committee that

Ho urged legislative restriction on the
tizt of newspapers, especially of the
"Jumbo Sunday newspapers," declar
ing the restriction could never be ac
complished through cooperation among
the publishers.
William It. Hearst in a letter to the
rommlttee presented a similar view.
' The blame Is entirely with the news
paper publishers, -who are consuming:
paper as a rule quite recklessly and
.without good business Judgment,"
wrote Mr. Hearst.
Both publishers agreed that news
papers must bo smaller; that adver
tising space must be reduced and cir
culation restricted. Both Insisted that
they ask the application of no pro
gramme to other businesses that they
are not willing to apply and Indeed al

Munsey assented.
Kah local field, competitive within

tinued Mr. Munsey. "New Tork and

After Will H. Hays, chair
man of tho Republican national
committee,, and other 'politicians
had conferred with Senator Boles
Penrose to-day in his homo here,
the Pennsylvania Republican
lender was .interviewed on the
national campaign. The inter
view brought out these points;

the sanity of any man who is for
Herbert Hoover for President.
2 Senator James E. Watson
(Indiana) is "mentioned promi

Washington, May 1. At least Ave
Democratic Senators will vote for the
Knox (Pa.) resolution declaring peace
with Germany and Austria, and only
one Republican will vote against it,
according to polls made to-day. The
five Democrats are Gore (Okla.),
Shields (Tenn.). Reed (Mo.). Walsh
(Mass.) and Myers (Mont.1. Tho one
Republican is McCumber (N. D.). All
other Republicans are expected to sup
port and all other Democrats to op
pose the measure.
Desplto the assurance that there Is
a comfortable majority for the resolu
tion, its stock went down to-day be
cause of persistent reports that the
Democrats, under Instructions from
tho White House, will not permit a
vote to be reached. It was declared
they will filibuster agatnst Us- con
sideration, desiring to save the Presi
dent from the embarrassment of
having to veto it.
The prospect of a real fight de
cidedly revived Interest In the resolu
tion. It has been viewed wlt'.i mild
concern heretofore because of the as
surance that tho President would veto
it and that It could not possibly be
adopted over the veto. Also Senator
Hitchcock (Neb.), who will have
charge of the Democratic fight, has
said that ho expected only a short
discussion, then the resolution's
adoption and then a prompt ;yeto.
But to-day's Information Is that If
there has not been definite determina
tion on a change of programme, the
change is likely to be made. It was
asserted that In the process of their
opposition the Democrats would offer
the treaty of Versailles, with the Lodge
reservations, as a substitute, and try
to force the Republicans to vote against
the .Lodge reservations. This procedure
has been threatened repeatedly, but It is
said by parliamentarians that though it
looks clever at first blush. It hasn't a
chance. '
For, it is explained, the resolution de
claring peace Is plain legislation, con
sidered in legislative session, under the
rules governing ordinary legislation,
whereas the treaty must be considered
In executive session, under different
It Is recognized that If the administra
tion Democrats desire 'they easily can
prevent a vote. The treaty has been
talked about re's, of the time for a
year, and everybody Is primed fo- un
limited, conversation about it wnenever
occasion requires.
Quite independently Sens tor Smith
(Ga.) Introduced to-day a brief bill to
repeal all the war legislation. It is not
Intended as a substitute for the Knox
resolution, but represents benator
Smith's Idea that the country Is more
concerned to get this legislation wiped
out than to restore technical peace.
The Republicans wouia db very wiuuit
n n. tha reneal bill If they knew they
could not make peace. Its passage would
be a creditable legislative act, while Its

that they hardly dare believe the Presi
dent might favor them with It.

Washington', May 1. Senator Hil
lander C. Knox (Penn.) to-day stepped
Into tho limelight near tho centre of
the Republican Presidential stage, lie
became one of the favorites with the
political prognostlcators on the
strength of the pronouncement in h!?
favor by Senator Penrose (Penn.), in
Philadelphia yesterday. But the truth
Is that for several weeks he had been
looming more and more as a possible
contender. Senator Penrose merely
pressed the button that closed the cir
cuit and turned on the light.
To-night, whllo there Is a variety
of opinion on the precise motive of
the Penrose statement, and while some
of Senator Knox's friends fear It was
a little premature from the standpoint
of unalloyed Interest In Senator Knox's
nomination, there Is no question that
the Knox movement lias taken doflnlte
form, to tho disadvantage of some
other candidates.
The campaign Is Just now In a state
of nervous uncertainty wherein shifts
and changes may result from seem
ingly minor causes. But several
things are pretty plain and the leader?
recognize them. One Is that nobody
Is going to Chicago with a majority of
delegates. Another Is that tho fight
between Wood and Johnson has been
so bitter and personal that neither is
likely to compound with the other.
Still further, the politicians of the
party do not intend that Johnson shall
be nominated, and even the most de
voted supporters of Johnson have
recognised freely that he is much
handicapped by the determined char
acter of this opposition.

Those three days started with last
Wednesday when returns from New Jer
sey mado "clear that wlillo Major-Gen.
Wood probably had caviled Hie State he
had not a solid delegation and the result
wis so close that It could not be claimed
a a real victory. This was heralded as
meaning that Wood was out of It, while
Johnson. was not In it because, It was
Insisted, only an overwhelming popular
vote for him in New Jersey could have
put him at the front. So, seeking the
compromisn candidate on whom all ele
ments might meet, the political special
lits took up Lowden.
Harding was left ouj because of his
failure to get a solid Ohio support.
Wood, it was calculated, had gained too
few volts by his Incursion Into Ohio to
be of much use, while he 'had won the
undying hostility of the Harding people.
Altogether Lowden looked most hopeful.
lttit all tha time Knox was in the
background. It Is a fact that he Is the
second choice of almost all the Johnson
people In Washington. That is true of
the Johnson group in the Senate and
of most of them In the House ai well as
outside Congress. It Is based on the
fact that Johnson and Knox' have been
closely associated as Irreconcilable op
ponents of the treaty; an association
that In tho last year has been respon
sible for many curious bedfellowshlps
ond that really has done muon to estab
lish better understanding. Inside the Re
publican party, among men who for
merly would have been at political an
tipodes. Warm Political Friends.
Aside from this Johnson and Knox
are the warmest of personal friends.
Several days ago some persons talked
to Senator Knox about his possible can
didacy. He laughingly said that It no
body was more worried about the nomi
nation than he the Chicago convention
would be a lovo feast, and then he en
tered on a little eulogy of Johnson.
Tlie Johnson eople concede to Knox
Just the same three day period of un
questioned premiership that they admit
Lowden enjoyed. They close the week
confident of carrying Indiana on Tues
day and hopeful, though not so confi
dent, of carrjlng Maryland on Monday.
If they fall In both those States they
will be ready to discuss alternatives to
Partly because of personal relations
between Knox and Johnson, partly be
cause It Is a case of "when East meets

second place. It can be said with a
good de' of confidence that there Is
nothing. In such suggestions. Senator
Johnson will not leave tho position of
power he holds on tho Senate floor for
that of presiding officer. All his friends
agree on that They do not believe he
'would take second placo and do not
want him to do so. If he did It would
be the result of Knox's earnest wishes
and as proof of his unqualified loyalty
to the ticket and party.
With the feeling ripe that Wood has
passed the zenith of his strength, the
politicians begin at. once to seek, out
signs of disintegration in his forces.

Washington, May 1. The soldier
bonus bill reported yesterday by tho
House Ways and Means' Committee It
to undergo important revisions in tho
committee next week, as the result of
the storm of opposition that greeted
It at the Republican caucus last night.
Whether any bill of this kind can
bo passed at the present sesilon of
Congress now appears very doubtful.
As oon as ono change in tho pending
measure is suggested uew opposition
bobs up, and many members aro fat
coming to tho conclusion that it may
be better to risk losing some soldier
votes than to face tho protests of the
majority of the American people at
this time.
The whole fight centres around tha
revenue provisions, althoush tonslder
able objection is being raised to the land
settlement features of tho measure. It
now seems probable that in revising the
bill the Ways and Means Commltteo
will eliminate the 1 per cent, tax on
retail sales which was to ralso more
than half of the money necessary to
carry out the soldier bonus programme.
What.levles will take Us place and raise
$400,000,001) the sales tax would yiflld
no one seems to know. Just at that
point the whole revenue fight comeA to
the front again.
Representative Fordney (Mich.),
chairman of the Ways and Means Com
mittee, said to-day that.he had no Idea
when the new bill would be completed.
He expects to be away from Washing
ton next week and It Is probable that
the levlscd measure will not be- ready
for action before May 15.
It Is virtually certain that no bonus
bill will bo passed through both Houses
before the recess In Juno for the na
tional conventions. If action Is taken
during tho summer It probably will re
sult from planks on the subject that
will appear In the party platforms.
Democrats aro still Insisting that they
will vote for a bonus bill only If It hu3
a heavy retroactive tax on war profits.
One plan now being suggested for pa
cifying tlie opposition Is to extend the
Increased taxes of Jl.564,000,000 that
weie proposed In the original bill over
a piriod of three years Instead of two.
This would mako necessary the exten
sion of the quarterly cash bonus pay
ments over a period of two years In
stead of one.
The whole programme of soldier bonus
was denounced to-day by Representative
Pell (X. V.) as a plan that threatened
the life and welfare of the nation.
"Of course I shall vote for the most
generous treatment possible for men In
jured In the servlco of the United States
and also for propef care of the depend
ents of those men who have been killed,
but I cannot bring myself merely for
consideration of political advantage to
vote for a bill which would Impose a tax
of Vd a head on every man, woman and
child In the country."

Seem to Regard Him as Fellow
Professional, Nevertheless
Take His Roll.
Elk Peterson, a maid employed In
the home of Mrs. C. H. DIckinton, at
North Bergen, N". J., was interrupted
In lier service of luncheon Just after
noon yesterday by the pounding of the
old brass knocker on the front door.
At Mrs. Dickinson's nod she hurried
to. the door, leaving her mistress and
the'latter's mother, Mrs. K. C. Thomas,
aged 03; her mother-in-law, Mrs.
Alonzo Dickinson", aged 91. and the
lattcr's sister-in-law, Mrs. C. G.
Thomas, aged 71. The nged women
were so busy talking thoy didn't hear
tho frightened HttU scream given by
Ella as she opened the door.
The door of the dining room opened
softly and Ella walked in followed by
two young men, each of whom carried
a revolver.
"There's nothing to fear, ladies," said
one of them. "Vo-i Just sit quiet and
go right on chatting, and don't bother
with w. My friend will look around
ths house, If you don't mind "
The speaker seated himself at the
table, motioning to Ulla that she might
go on serving the luncheon from the
sideboard. For half an hour he sat
there exchanging remarks with the thne
elderly ladles and the hastes. He had
rested his big revolver beside his plate,
partly covering It with a napkin.
And whllo he chatted on In a most
refined manner his pal rummaged
around upstairs and collected $100 in
cash and Jewelry worth five times that
amount. Eventually he came down to
the dining room and apologized for the
delay. He joked, In a way with which
even old Mrs. Thomas could find no
fault, over the clever hiding places he
had uncovered upstairs.
"And now, ladles, we will go," he tola
the four at the table, "First, of course,
we must take a few little precautions."
He took the four big, old fashioned
napklni being used at the luncheon, and
with the help of his polite pal lied Mrs.
Dickinson and her mother and the two
other guests each to her chair. With
bows and apologies both men then
stepped out of the room, letting Ella
walk before them.
As they stirtcd through the rear door
they mt the ice man. They trussed him
up 'with a bit of clothesline.
"And this." said tlie taller burglar, to
the Iceman as ho lifted his roll, "is our
apology to a publio long unable to dis
cover any Justification for our profes
sion." It was the Iceman who, after he had
worked himself free of the clothesline,
released the four women In tho dining
room. Later neither' he nor they were
able to describe the burglars accurately
to the police.
"But I think I would know the voice
of one of them again," said the Iceman,
repeating the burglar's remark about
the Justification of his profession.
And then he asked the policemen It
they could make head or tall of what
tlie burglar said. .

In addition to equalling the Decatur

When Umpire McCormlck called the
gamo this evening It was so dark that
tho players had difficulty in following
the ball. Ivan Olson of Brooklyn im
plored him to allow ono more Inning
to be played. The official refused, and
when the tired players ran off the
field the 2,000 fans who saw, the great
contest gave them an ovation.
Leon Cadore pitched the entire game
for Brooklyn, and his opponent on uie
mound all tho way was Joe ocscnger.
Tho two right banders gavo a most re
markable exhibition of pitching. Oesch
rfor allowed only nine singles and in no
inning were two safo blows recoraeu.
Cadore. in the early trames, was uu
rather freely. Eleven ot the fifteen hits
which he allowed were made In the first
nine uesslons.
It was a tenso battle, replete with
thrilling plays, and with the remarkable'
pitching of Oeschger, standing' out in
bold relief at nil stages of the test.
Only twice did Brooklyn runners reach
third base-in the fifth, In which tin
Dodges got their score, and again In the
seventeenth Inning, which, of course,
produced no tally. Time and again h
looked as If Cadore would fall, but time

.spectacular and a double play killed
Brooklyn's chance to end tho battle.
The Brooklyns scored their single ruo
of the contest In the fifth inning. Krue

doing the catching for the visitors, led
oft with a base on balls. Cadore was

over Maranvllle's head and Krueger
crossed the platb. Olson was at bat
ten times and that proved to be his only

Paris, May 1. Few scenes ot actual
violence marked the May Day demon
stration to-day. Though there were
sporadic riots and disorders in which
three persons were' killed and many
wounded France proved again that
her proletariat ure sobered by war and
are not revolutionary at heart.
The General Federation of Labo:
did not declare tho threatened nation
wido general strike, but as a demon
stratlon of the power of organized
labor the scene to-day in Paris, with
all Industry stoppco, was impressive,
the mora eo becaueo It lacked tho revo
lutlonarv eplrlt. Thus far the appear-
anco of the red flag or the black flajr
chosen as their emblem by some, an

clash this evening between police and
demonstrators in tho Placo de la 'ue

many arrests were made.

publique and at the Oare de l'Est, and
at hoth nlacos the police fired over tlie
heads ot tho crowd. At other places
police sword bayonets wero used. A
woman watching the disorder from a

A most impressive feature or tne qkj
were volunteers from the Paris Civl
Learrue. who manned street cars, buses
and subway trains, keeping the public
service going. Toung and well dressed
men of the best families, high school ant
technical students drove buses through
the crowds, guarded by police. Their
buses were stoned In the Place de la

The force of which those youths were
members was organized weeks ago un
der Gen. Ballloud. But for this force
there would have been a total suspen
sion of public- servlco, but, as It 'was,
many rode in comfort, though at times
the buses and trams were stoned.
Tlie service was organized at the' In
stance of the Government.
It Is estimated that In the remainder
of France the May Day strikes were
about 60 per cent, effective. Thus far
no disorders have been reported In the
remainder of France. It Is believed the
demonstration of organized labor's
power and the cessation of work cost
France a half billion francs.

As mild as the kind spring air that

Up la the New Star Casino, 10"th
street and Park avenue, a similar meet
ing was held. At Seventh street and
Avenue C, the lower East Side Socialists
held an open air meeting that was
opened by tho band playing "The Star
Spangled Banner." The crowd of ".hree
hundred people uncovered at the first
notes and stood uncovered until the end.
Many of the young men served notice
of their army experience by rigidly
standing at attention. The applause that
followed the final bars -was more hearty
than that which was meted out to tno
few remarks with which Joseph D. Cam

Figuring that a meeting with a .name
