Foreign Relations Body to
Meet Tomorrow to Con
sider Knox Plan.
Action to Be Closely Linked
With Contest of Sen
ate Leaders.
Some definite action, looking toward
the passage of a resolution by both
houses of Congress declaring peace
with Germany, is expected to be taken (
by the Foreign Relations Committee,
which has been called to meet tomor
row morning.
In issuing the call yesterdsy for the
meeting. Senator Lodge notified the]
members that the committee will con
sider the Knox resolution to ratify
the treaty without the iesgue of na
tions covenant.
According to statements made by a
Bomber of the committee members, it
to believed that the resolution In some
form will be approved by the commit
tee and reported to the Senate. This
will bring to a direct issue in the
Senate the talk of compromise which
^as emanated chiefly from the Demo
cratic Senators who disagree with the'
position assumed by President Wilson.
Linked With Leaders' C sat est.
Closely linked with the probable ac
tion of the committee on the peace j
lesolution i^ the settlement of the con
test between Senators Hitchcock, of
Nebraska, and I'nderwood. of Ala
iMtma. for the Democratic leadership,
which is to be settled tomorrow morn
ing also. Senator Hitchcock, who is
acting leader of the minority, issued
the sail for the caucus. Much de
pends on the result of the contest,
for Senator Underwood stands for the
policy of bringing about peace cither
with the treaty or by means of a
resolution, while Senator Hitchcock
* up ports the President's view that the
treaty must be ratified.
If Senator^Vnderwood should capture
the leadership^ It is more than likely
Niat a considerable number of his
follower* will supnort the Knox reso
lution if they beoitfne convinced that
ixjiee can be obtained in no other
way. * l""

D. C. Police Court
Abolishes Credit
There'll be no more "tick"
given by the police court.
Judge Robert Hardison an
nounced from the bench yes
terday that hereafter hit court
will be conducted on a strictly
cash basis. The credit system
has been indefinitely discon
tinued. Heretofore when a
prisoner who had been fined
asked permission to go to bis
home or place of employment
and get the amount assessed
against them, such permission
was granted in many cases.
"We have a stack of cases
in the clerk's office as thick
as a family Bible of defend
ants who failed to come back
with the fines after being re
leased on their word and
"Dishonest fellows are to
blame for the abolishment of
the credit system," Clerk
Campbell Howard said. "Thus,
again the innocent will suffer
because of the shortcomings
of the guilty."
Adopts Measures Making
Rail Walkout a
The anti-strike provisions of the'
railroad bill were adopted by the
Senate yesterday by the vote of
46 to 25. the vote being taken on a
motion by Senator Stanley, of Ken
tucky. to eliminate the provisions
from the bill.
A nharp debate preceded the vote
by which the Senate sustained the
committee's action in writing into
the measure the provisions which
would adjudge a strike against com
mon carriers to be a conspiracy,
punishable by a heavy fin* and im
Senator Thomas, of Colorado, lead
ing the debate. declared that the
strike tendency was growing in the
United States "at an alarming r^U."
He 'aid that whereas the number of
men s*nt overseas during the war
was 2.053.347. the number of men in
the United States who quit work in
obedience to strike orders during
the war amounted to 2.386.285. Dis
cussing these figures the Senator
said: f
"That was at a time when the la
bor and energy of every citizen in
the country should have been ?*x
erted to keep the home flres bunt
ing in order that the boys overseas
might be mo?t effective. Since the
war we have had n perfect orgy of
strikes and in every one of them
there was the threat of violence
against any others who sought to
take their places."
Terror Rule Grows When
Police Withdraw from
Rur^al Districts.
Dublin. Dec. IS.?The government
fuced an almost impossible task today
ir. the policing of rurai Irish districts.
Owing to a systematic campaign of
sHssination and terrorism against
I the Koyal Irish Constabulary the gov
ernment was withdrawing th#?se offi
cers from many interior districts. It
had closed isolated police stations,
leaving wide districts without police
protection. This had resulted in a
virtual reign of anarchy.
Available police, being concentrated
in the more populous districts, refused
to travel except in groups of three to
Decause of the police shortage au
thorities appealed to employers in
Dublin and the larger cities to enlist
all employes possible to protect prop

without success. The employes de

Motto for Fight On Anarchists
Denver, Dec 18.?Drastic action to curb alien agitators and
halt the spread of anarchistic propaganda was advocated by Maj.
Gen. Leonard A. Wood, in an address before the joint session of
the Colorado legislature today. The right motto in dealing with
these agitators is: "S O S?Ship or shoot!" the general said, and
added: ['
"They should be put on a ship of stone with sails oi lead and ;

Federal employes pledged them*
?elves last night to ask Congress
for specific wage increases to off
set deductions from salary for civil
service retirement pensions should
Representative Lehlbach's retire

This action was taken at a meet

which represents 400/000 federal em- i

passage lay in convincing Congress
that prohibitive expenditures are
