SENATORS DROP
PENROSE FIGHT
Opposition Vanishes in De
sire for Control of
Foreign Affairs.
i
The fight that was started by a j
number of Republican Senators to]
keep .Senator Boies I?enrose. of Penn
sylvania. from l?ecoming chairman of
the Finance Committee fn the next
Senate appears to have come to an
end.
The Pennsylvania^* nrill jto bof?-*-e 1
he Senate a* th-'e - c of1* wajolV
ty of the Republican caucus, and no
attempt will bo made to prevent his j
election by the Senate. |
It was announced yesterday that an
understanding has been reached be
tween the various groups of Senators
that the fight on Penrose shall not be (
carried beyond the caucus.
It is understood that six or seven 1
Republicans probably v. ill vote against j
him in the caucus, but will-accept thej
caucus decision. Some of the ultra j
antis may refrain from voting at all j
on the nomination, but it Is not be- j
lieved there will bo any votes in the i
Senate against him
The reason for the subsidence of
the Penrose fight is that more im
portant issues have arisen to sub
merge the opposition to his attaining
the important chairmanship
Foremost among these is the control
of the Foreign Relation* Committee.
All of the Republican Senators re-1
gard the personnel of this committee i
as of the hichest importance, and
those Senators who are leading the
fight against the league of nations
are particularly anxious that the
committee shall be arranged to suit
them.
The league opponents have already

bers of the committee fn Senators,
I^odce. Borah. Brandegee. Fall and]
Knox. McCumber. of Noith Pakots. j
the other Republican who retains I
membership on the committee, is for
the league. Of the nine holdover (
Democrats all but one. Thomas of
Colorado, mill support the leapuo
covenant.
The league opponents don't want to
have Senator Thomas dropped from I
the committee because he is against
the league and his vote in the com- j
mittee may be needed.
Also they would like to see such
strong opposition men as Johnson, of
California: Moses, of New Hamp
shire; McCormick. of Illinois, and Ix*n
root. of Wisconsin, added to the com

increased European market *il|
the serious situation confronting
trem?vast over-development of
American mines. Hayes said that at
present ,he mit,e. are producing
twice as much coal as America needs
with the result the miners arc aver
oging only half time throuchont the
country.
The coal shortace in the I niled
States, he said, is due sol.lv |o in
sufficient transportation.
After ascertalring heie that U.e
chief difficulty in selling coal to Fu
rope is lack of shippmg. Haves
sought to devise means of obtaining
sufficient tonnage to enable shipment
I of American coal cheaply enough to
compete with the British in Italy and
France.
Great Britain's position is diametri
cally opposite to America's, its fault
being under-production rather than
over-production.
