Boston, June 10. Scrubwomen are
quitting their jobs, prohibition having
made It unnecessary for them to do the
work, according to Information obtained
by Inspectors of the minimum wage di
vision of the State Department of Labor
and Industries.
In license times, office building man
agers told the Inspectors, they had no
difficulty In recruiting scrubbing squads
from women forced to support their
families because their husbands were
Under prohibition, the women said
they had more money for household
needs and, while some continued to
work, they did not have to undertake
the tiring labors of the scrubbing brush
and pall to eke out family support.
Breeklnrldire Lonir Is III,
Sr. Louts, June 10. Breckinridge
Long, who resigned yesterday as Third
Assistant Secretary of State to make
the race for the Democratic nomination
for United States Senator, is confined to
bed In his home here, suffering from
tonsllltls. It was announced to-day.
His physician has ordered that he see no
Continued from FWtt ragi
that we ratify the league with particu
lar reservations. That Is what we op
posed. That Is beaten. There Is no re
quest, as.I understand It, for ratification
of the League of Nations at all."
"Does that accomplish all you desired
to dor
"Absolutely. It Is the Justification of
what this little band of Senators has
done In Washington."
"Would you like personally to say
anything of he rumors that have been
printed of a controversy between you
and Senator Borah, or some falling out
you have had on that subJectT'
"There la absolutely not a word of
truth In It. AVhere was it printed V
Tills last question Senator Johnson
shot out with a flash of anger In his
eyes. It was explained to him that a
Chicago newspaper had printed such a
story, declaring that the more radical
views of Senator Borah on the league
were regarded by Senator Johncon as
likely to Injure his candidacy.
That 1 a great blunder," declared
the Callfornlan, "Senator Borah and I
are on the most cordial terms, not onlyj
that, but I might say affectionate terms.
I am astonished at such a report. If
you had told me It appeared In some
New York newspapers I might have felt
no surprise."
C'onfldent of domination.
The Senator was asked whether he
was atlll confident of success In the bal
loting for the Presidential nomination,
"1 nm confident, very confident," he
replied. "It has been a long, hard fight
concerning the platform. There has been
a tremendous victory for Americanism.
It Is a signal and overwhelming defeat
for Internationalism and International
bankers who are here to-day, determined
not alone to write the platform of the
Republican party, but determined also
to nominate a candidate for President
They have been whipped on the first, and
I am hoping that they will be beaten In
like manner on the second,"
"Does the agreement on the platform
mean that you will not attend the con
vention?" "That means I probably will not at
tend the convention. If the matter Is
settled as It has been reported to me
I'll probably not go to tl.a convention.
If It Is not settled that way I will go."
"Does that dispose of the "bolt or
third partI"
"I don't know anything about that. It
disposes of the first attack upon tha
Republican party by Internationalism
and International bankers. That Is all.
We'll try to attend to the second with
equal success. We have a mighty grave
question here, gentlemen. I tried to ex
press It to you the ether night Shall
the party of Lincoln continue the party
of the plain people In this land, or anau
It be a mere appurtenance of certain
New York International bankers! That
question has to be thrshed out, and It
has cot to be decided here In Chicago."
Senator Johnson and his lieutenants
did practically all the talking here to
day. There was nothing to eay for puo
llMtlnn at th Wood and Johnson head'
quarters. They do not relish the Idea of
having to defend themselves, through
their spokesmen, against tne expecita
nntlauirht of the Johnson forces. They
have been trying for the last few days
to forge', about the Senate committee
end disclosures about their targe cam
paign expenditures. They have been
hoping that the delegates would ferget
them. It makes tnem distinctly uncom
fortable to know that the whole die
Igreesble matter may be aired before
the great gathering to-morrow.
However, they are prepared to.answer
the attack to the best of their ability, It
It should become necessary. It depends
entirety on what hearing Senator Borah
gets before the convention whether they
will hae speakers to reply to him from
the rostrum. Should the convention re
ceive the Borah speech with Indifference
they will probably make no reply, but
will attempt to offset It by quick floor
work among the delegates.
There Is much speculation and not a
little bitterness over the veiled threats
of bolting the party made by Senators
Johnson and Borah. They were made
yesterday whllo the fight over the
league of Nations plank was at Ita crit
leal stare. With that settled by a John
son-Borah victory, it was thought tha
threats might cease. .
But Senator Johnson's Indirect answer
to the question as to whether his victory
on the league plank disposed of the re
port of a third party or a bolt opens
the whole matter anew.
The Old Guard and Wood and Low
den managers aayJohnaon and Borah
are running a strong bluff. That may
be, but tho Old Guard was afraid to call
It In the case of the treaty, and that un-
doubtedly has given tho Johnson camp
courage to try It again with regard to
the nomination for President To-morrow
should determine how successful
the secoruL attempt will be.
