RECESS CAN CLEAR DECK FOR COUNCIL _ l O-Day Adjournment of Industrial Conference, While Mass of Plans Are Sorted, Would Facilitate Progress, Says White. -1 PUBLIC'S DELEGATES MAY GET TOGETHER Such Men as Judge Gary And John Spargo Agree On Many Proposals.

Ine' An adjournment for ten days is more than possible at the end o? ! the first week's activities of the Industrial Conference. This at? journment will be a hopeful sign.

This ad journment is not agreed upon but it is seriously discussed. Usas ef l'rop.s.l. The proposal will be made today or on Saturday sfter the mass of proposals which have deluged the general committee has been sorted and is ready for consideration. So far. tbe mass has been so great that the committee could do little more than sort over and catalogue the proposals. They do not come from cranks generally, but from re sponsible commercial bodies, from college professors, from State or ganisations of Innumerable kinds, rabile Grasp May TTslte. In the mesntim?'. the public group, which will be between the two millstones of the right and the left, has decided to unite if possible upon a majority report but to defer presenting It until it is evident what the upper and nether mill stones are doing. The public group represents all sorts of divergent opinions, ut it is getting a rather unmistakable group coiisciousness, even with men ss far spart as Judge Gary and John Spargo, who, by the way. agree ln many propo sals, -ind its group consciousness will be as definite as that of labor or capital if the conference con tinues. The women of the public group are, first of all, for child welfare standards to be adopted and regu lations for hours and conditions of labor for women ln industry to be secured In whatever agreement la reached, and the contention of the women will be accepted by the pub lic group and naturally Indorsed by labor, so that capital can hardly af ford to oppose these demands of the women. It may be assumed, there fore, that if anything at all comes out of the conference women and children ln Industry will be protect ed. And the fact that the confer ence Is going so seriously at its work seems to Indicate that real results will ?some even If it should adjourn CO*J*n*sl71CD OS PAC** TWO.

LONG DEBATE IN SENATE BREWING OVER SHANTUNG *.? ? ? ? , ? m France Blocks Lodge's Ef-? forts to Expedite Action. A long siege of debate Is in prospect j for the Shantung amendment to the j peace treaty, which seeks to voice the ! disapproval of the Senate of the award by the Peace Conference of China's richest province to Japan. The linai vote on the amendment prob ably will not be taken before the end I of next week. ? Senator Lodge, the Republican lead ' er, made an unsuccessful effort In the ! Senate yesterday to expedite action on I the amendment by having the debate 1 put off until the rest of the treaty text I has been read. He was blocked in this by Senator France, of Maryland. : who Is against the Shantung award, against the legue of nations, and against the whole treaty. ?.rinlun?: Infamy. After Senator Iaodgv's request foi postponement of the debate by unani mous consent had been refused. Sen ator France took the floor and spoke for three hours against the treaty. He announced that he Intended to re sume the speech and speak for an other hour today. Senator l,a Follette is to ?peak five days against the treaty, specializing on the Shantung decision, and Senators Norria, of Nebraska, and Borah, of Icaho, also are to be heard.

IRISH PROBLEM PLANS RUSHED British to Make Effort for Perma nent Solution This Month. London, Oct. s.? Deflnite plans to rush a settlement of the Irish problem were discussed at yeaterd?;.-'? meet ing of the cabinet, it was learned today. It was decided that when Parliament reconvenes on October ?? the government will pre?? It to make an effort for a permanent solution of Ireland's case, and a committee will be appointed to decide the de tails. The ministers agreed that it would be fatal to continue the present stale mate ?nd ?leo that government by force in Ireland Is futile. The cabinet ia ??id to have agreed not to force tlster into the propoeed Irish parliament. It is believed the government will propose to exclude the six Ulster countiea from the ?cope of the new home rule bill, though the latter will contain a proviso by which any of them can by ? vote of the electors Join the reet of Irelan 1 and be represented in the parliament at Dublin. From evidently inspired sources comes the word that the government will attempt to induce th? Sinn Fein ere to acquiesce in the new plan, but there is small encouragement in that direction thus far, the Sinn Feiners seeming irreconcilable to any work ing agreement with England and in sisting upon their demand for an independent Irish republic. They will have nothing to do with any ?chenus for home rule, demanding complete separation from England and the British umpire as a ?hole. The government, however, is ex pected to endeavor to get ahead on the basis of the agreement? thus for reached.
