Combine-Controlled City Com

Indersement
MOVE SEEN AS SCARE TO
BOOST BAKER'S STOCK
Watseji Re-elected President
and Mrs. Harmen Succeeds
Mrs.' Altemus
The Varc-contrelled Republican City
Committee took the unusual step at Its
reorganization meeting today of defer
ring nn Indersement of the State ticket
nominated last mouth, because It Is
headed by Glfferd Pinchot, candidate
for Governer, and also In the vain hope
of scaring Plnchet In his fight against
W. Harry Baker for State chairman.
it wns announced tnac rincnei weum
sooner or later be Indorsed nnd that
the stalwarts would support him ln the
Xfwemher plppHnn. hut the Varte men,
particularly Chnrlle Hall, did net like
te surrender all nt once.
Therefore It wns nlanned te have n
committee en resolutions draw up rese
lutiens of indersement wnicn win ne
adopted nt a meeting te be held' nt the
call of the chair and, this Is the im
portant point, some time after the re
organization meeting of the Republican
State Committee next Saturday.
On that occasion the issue between
Bnkcr, the choice of the Vare-Lcslle-Eyre
combine for State chairman, and
General Asher Miner, the personal sug
gestion of Plnchet, will be settled.
It Is believed by these informed thnt
the indersement of Plnchet wns deferred
with the object of halting the progress
of the Plnchet drive toward the State
chairmanship. Practical politicians, in
cluding some of these ln the City Com
mittee who are tired of the Vue tactics,
declared that the Vare leaders would
legrct their slap at Pinchot.
Hall Cuts Loese
Councilman Hall voiced the feeling
of disappointment ever the outcome of
the primaries, in the course of one of
his explosive speeches, in which he
warned the forester ngalnst "usurping"
the functions of the. State Committee.
Further, he wnrned Plnchet against be
ing as "foolish" as Mayer Moere, who.
he said, had tried te be the political
boss of Philadelphia.
Hall spoke almost as n brother te
Plnchet when he wnrned the candidate
for Governer against trying te be the
political boss of Pennsylvania. Mr.
Hall said that he and his friends were
for Baker for State chairman but Just
the same they would net deBert Plnchet
for Governer.
"Big Tem" Cunningham, however,
declared that it was going tP be a job
te roll up n big majority for the for
ester. All this was part of the play
te held the Vare lines taut for Baker
for chairman.
Other than the Pinchot dodge, the
committee meeting was distinguished by
the selection of Mrs. A. W. Harmen,
who is Vare leader of the women, ns
honorary vice president, te succeed Mrs.
Dobsen Altemus. Mrs. Altemus aftci
her election as vice chairman never
did work with the Vare organization

PARIS DECREE WAS SECRET
New Yerk, June 7. Frlend of
Gannn Wnlska Iri1 this city are inter
ested ln renerts from Paris that the
Polish opera singer has been granted a
divorce from Alexander Smith Coch
ran, New Yerk multi-millionaire. The
terms of settlement hnve net been made
public, but It Is believed the diva will
receive $200,000. The divorce was
granted ntteut two weeks age by the
Paris courts, but the hcttlement was
reached out of court, the reports Mate.
Every eirert was mane te ueep tne
ease secret, but these efforts were only
partially surressful. Tt Is known the
suit was given only a brief heurlng ln
the French court and the documents
were finnllv liculed last Friday. Mr.
Cechrnn did net attend the hearing.
Grounds for Iho action arc n matter of
speculation, although friends of Genna

Is expressed here nt the small settle

have accepted.

year, after Mr. Cochran had mndc. her
an offer of approximately $10,000 an
nually for the rest of her life. The
couple were separated early in 1021,
and there was considerable dickering
before the agreement really began te
take shape.

Reject Arbitration, but Express
Willingness te Continue
Negotiations
SAY CRISIS IS NOT REACHED
YET IN WAGE CONTROVERSY
Limited Submission of Issues te
Commission Possible, it
Is Stated
By the Associated Press
Ilazletnn, Pa., June 7. Although the
anthracite Mine Workers' General
Scale Committee unanimously re
jected the operators' pronesal for the
appointment of n commission te arbi
trate the questions en which the min
ers and operators have been dead
locked, prevision wns made for the
continuance of the negotiations by the
appointment of a sub-committee te draft
a counter-prepoal. This sub-corn-mblttee,
consisting of Philip U. Murray,
lntcrnntlennl vice president; Themas
Kennedy, president of District 7; C.
J. Gelden, president of District 0. and
Wlllnm J. Urcnnan. president of DIs
trtet 1 worked until Inte Inst night
framing its reply for submission te
the Scale Committee today.
Crisis Net Reached
Prier te the meeting of the Scale
Committee, members of the sub-cem-mitce
declined te discuss the nnture of
their reply te the operators. They in
dicated, however, thnt n crisis ln the
wane nccotlntlens had net yet been
reached, and that there wns still room
for further conplderntien of their de
mands. Arbitration for the present wns
out of the question, it vus stnted, but
there still wns a possibility of a limited
submission of the issues te n commis
sion, provided assurnnccs were given
that there would be no consideration of
a wage cut, which the or.eraters hove
demanded te the extent of 21 per cent.
The miners were ready te debate the
demands ns drafted by the Shamekln
Trl -District Convention, Mr. Murray
bald.
Claim Cut Net Necessary
Leaders of the mlnp workers contend
that wages are net responsible for the
high price of fuel, nnd that the cost
of coal can be reduced without a wage
cut. Asked whether the miners would
be satisfied lf the operators offered te
renew the contract which expired April
1, District President Kennedy declared
that was a matter which had net yet
been reached. The miners nre 100 per
cent for progress and 100 per cent
ngalnst nny backward step, added Mr.
Kennedy.
Before the Scale Committee went into
session some of the members. It wns
Intimated, may propose that a referen
dum of the anthracite locals be taken
te authorize the committee te turn the
suspension into a strike, if necessary,
lf n crisis develops.
Referendum Quicker
According te Chairman Kennedy, the
referendum method will lie used te act
en nnv final recommendations of the
Scale Committee. It Is pointed out thnt
a referendum would he quicker and less
expensive than a tri-distrlet convention.
International Vice President Murray
declined te discuss the text of the reply
te be given te the operators, but gave
out the following statement:
"The mine workers are perfectly
willing te continue negotiations with
the understanding that the demands of
the Shamekln convention become the
basis upon which discussion shall be
conducted. We deplore the present
suspension of the anthracite mines and
believe if the anthracite opcruters would
sincerely take up the task of solving
the problem that a new wage scale could
be promptly agreed te.'"
Mr. Murray amplitled the statement
en the Shamekln demands by explaining
that this means an upward njid npt 11
downward action en formulating a new
wage scale. He said that a referendum
en authorization of the Scale Commit
tee by the rank and file te act in any
emergency will be considered in resolu
tions nnd that ethers will cover the
action of Imposters nt Philadelphia col
lecting funds for anthracite miners. He
said no money is being solicited for re
lief en behalf of the hard-coal men.

Washington, June 7. The Brookhart
victory in Iowa is significant ns the
first impertnnt success of the labor
unions in politics. Mr. Brookhart was
as much the enndidnte of the railroad

farmers.
The workers applied effectively the

the opinion just handed down by the
Supreme Court In the Colerndo case and
the recent cuts In wages ngalnst which
strikes are proving nn inadequate

The Corenndo opinion, which appears
te be a mere dictum of the court and
se net necessarily binding for the fu

direction tn which the court Is llkelv
te go in the future In holding unions
responsible financially for damnces
caused by a strike, parallels the Taff

labor organizations In England Inte

of the British I.uber Party.

The Gompers policy, which amounts
