Thirty four, of the forty-five unions com prising the membership of the local trades and labor council, voted in favor of the general strike which was called for todsy, in sympathy with the Winnipeg strikers, accord ing to the labor council. The vote was taken by all organized labor, whether affiliated with the council of not said strike leaders. VICTORIA. B. C, May 26. At a meeting of the trades and labor council held tonight it was decided to call upon all the unions affiiated to take a strike vote in sympathy with the Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton situation. All votes must be in and the result announced by next Sunday night. WINNIPEG, Manitoba, May 26. The Winnipeg city ccuncil to night, despite vigorous opposition from the labor members, voted nine to five to reorganize the municipal fire department along lines that will forbid the firemen to join oth er union forces in a sympathetic strike. Extreme bitterness marked the rouncil meeting. The word "rebel" was used twice. The council by a 9 to 5 vote, also adopted a resolution to provide lists of rity employes cm strike prepared imme diately and commencing Thursday, to have vacancies filled by men who will not desert their posts during sympa thetic strikes. Labor aide! men attempted to amend the resolution pertaining to the fire men, by substituting a recommenda tion that a council committee call upon Premier T. C. Norris and urge legislation to provide for collective ba Raining. After the amendment was defeated and the original resolution was passed, the supporters of the fire men resolution reintroduced the labor a Merman's collective bargaining amendment, as a result. It was passed. J"our of the five labor aldermen voted against it. Ls.hor councilmen objected to the use of the word "rebel," as ap plied to any pe.rson concerned with the strike. Mayor Gray challenged the ob jection and sa,d that he considered the term might be applied 'to one labor leader." "WINNIPEG, Manitoba. May 26. De spite the fact that the 'Winnipeg gen eral strike has been condemned by leading officials of every- branch of governmental authority, the union loii-es made no move toward industrial pe:ice today. Announcement that gen eral walkouts took place today at Ed monton and Calgary and that unions at Saskatoon and Kegina would consider similar action tonight, seemingly strengthened the morale of the local labor contingent. On the face of the ultimatum issued last week by Gideon Robertson, federal minister of labor, a large majority of Winnipeg postal clerks w?re today au tomatically ousted from the federal ser vice. Robertson gave the workers un til noon to return to work or to stand discharged. Only a few went back. A similar order by the provincial govern ment to provincial telephone operators received the same response. The city council met tonight to con eider a communication made public last night by Mayor Charles V. Gray, re fine.sttng that no city employe who joined the sympathetic strike should be taken back until he signs a written agreement not to leave his post in the future. The question of operating street cars tomorrow also was before the council. Mayor Gray stated today that the city would furnish "adequate pro tection" if car service, suspended since the strike began on May 1-i, is resumed, i Defines Collective Baraainina !

Immediately after the senate con vened at noon. Senator Watson of In diana, new chairman of the woman suffrage committee, called up the mo tion of Senator Jones, republican or Washington, to take the resolution from the committee and place it on the senate calendar. Southern democratic senators registered opposition, insist ing that the resolution come up in the normal way with ample opportunity for debate. The first test of trength between the opposing faction came on the motion to table Senator Jones' motion, which was defeated 64 to 27. Opponents then resorted to parliamentary tactics- to prevent a vote on the Jones motion un til 2 o'clock, when it was set aside under the rule for renewal of debate on the resolution of Senator Johnson, republican of California, requesting the state department to furnish the senate a copy of the peace treaty. ; Senator Johnson agreed to have his resolution go over temporarily but the rules prevented such action. Opponents freely admitted that there was no doubt of sufficient votes to in sure passage of the suffrage resolu tion, and supporters expect to pass it Thursday after it had remained on the calendar for a day, as required by the rules. Before the senate met, the republi can conference called to consider com mittee selections adopted a resolution pledging prompt action. Republican A. P. Leased Wire t CHICO, Cal., May 26.

P. Leased Wire MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich., May 25. Witnesses for Henry Ford, who is suing the Chicago Daily Tribune for $1,000,000 damages on a charge of libel, gave glimpses of the routine of the Ford plant today. Opening testimony was along the lines of refutation of the assertion in the Tribune's alleged libel ous editorial, that at the time the na tional guard was called out for Mexi can border service, Mr. Ford would not hold his employes' jobs open for them while absent. The witnesses were John J. Henkel, head of the employment department; Harry Sommers, his assistant, and Norman M. Baker, a foreman. Baker said he served with the na tional guard during the copper strike in upper Michigan in 1913; answered the call for Mexican service in 1916, and had attended the annual Michigan guard encampments. He testified that during his military services, he was always reinstated and never discrim inated against. The testimony of wit nesses was that for years it had bees me fora policy to reinstate men wno ceased employment for reasons beyond their control, such as sickness or mill- tary service, and that this policy was in operation when the national guard was called out in 1316. Much of the testimony revolved around memorandum slips made out by- foremen when men quit their employ ment, and little discs given some of them when they left to go with the guard. A man who quits his employment at the Ford plant, it was said, gets the slip as a clearance from his foreman, and returns it to the employment divi sion when he wishes to re-enter tho service. Some thirty or forty em ployes joined the guards, it was said. Those who came personally to Henkel or Sommers testified they were given the little discs, which the witnesses de clared assured them reinstatement when they returned, which counsel for the Tribune insisted merely guaran teed that they could get into the em ployment officers without standing in line with new applicants. Many questions were asked concern ing one Florence Donahue, whose memorandum slip bore the notation, "reinstate if conditions warrant." Donahue joined the guard, but neither Henkel nor Sommers knew what be came of him. They said he did not ap ply for his old job. U. S. S. NEW JERSEY AT AZORES IN TROUBLE Republican A. P.

The DaitjTWaH today prints a dispatch from Thurso, Scotland, giving the narrative of Harry G. Hawker, regarding the unsuccess ful attempt to fly across the Atlantic, made by himself and Lieutenant Com mander Mackenzie Grieve. "We had very difficult ground to rise from on the other side," said Hawker- "To rise at all we had to run diagonally across. the course. "Once we got away, we climbed well but about ten minutes up, we passed from a firm, clear weather into New Foundland fog banks. We got well over these, however, and of course, lost sight of the sea, "The sky was quite clear for the first four hours, when' the visibility became very bad. Heavy cloud banks were encountered and eventually we flew into a heavy storm with rain squalls. "At this time, we were flying well above the clouds at a height of about fifteen thousand feet. TROUBLE COMES EARLY . "About five and one-half hours out, owing to the choking of the filter, the temperature of the water cooling our engine started to rise, but after com ing down several thousand feet, we overcame this difficulty. Everything went weJI.for another few hours, when nc aoain th. rireulatinn . came choked and the temperature of tne water rose to tne boiling point, We of course realized that until the pjpe was ceared we coud not rise j mucn higher without using a lot of mnnr wr Wh ht 12 and one-half hours on our way, the circulation system was still giving us trouble, and we realized that we could not go on using up our motor power. "Then it was that we reached the first fateful decision to play for safe ty. We changed our course and began flying diagonally across the main ship ping route for about wo and a half hours, when to our great relief we sighted a Danish steamer, which proved to be the tramp steamer, Mary. "We sent up our very light distress signals. These were answered prompt ly, and then we flew on about two miles and landed in the water ahead of the steamer. SEA VERY ROUGH "The sea was exceedingly rough, and M.,,wtciuii uiine uanisn erew, it was ninety minutes before they succeeded in taking us off. It was only at great risK to tnemseives, in fact, that they eventually succeeded in launching a smalfboat, owing to the heavy gale from the northeast which was raging. "It was found impossible to salvage the machine which, however, most probably is still afloat somewhere in mid-Atlantic. "Altogether, before being picked up, we had been fourteen and a half hours out from New Foundland, and we were picked up at 8:30 a -m. Greenwich time, "From Captain Dunn, of the Mary, and his Danish crew, we received the greatest kindness on the journey home. The stjip carries no wireless and it was not until we arrived off the Butt of Lewis that we were able to communi cate with the authorities. Off Locher boi, we were mat by the destroyer Woolsun, and conveyed to the Scapa Flow, where we had a splendid welcome home from Admiral Fremantle and the men of the grand fleet." LONDON, May 26. Lieutenant Com mander Grieve -ave the Daily Mail the following statement: "When a few hundred miles out, a strong northerly gale drove us steadily out of our course. It was not always possible, owing to the pressure of dense masses of clouds, .to take our hearings and I calculate that at the time we de termined to cut across the shipping route, we were about 200 miles out of our course. Up to the change of direc tion, we had covered about 1,000 mile of tha journeyito the Irish, coast." have read it." T E T raoooi Republican A. P. Leased Wire DENVER," Colo., May 26. Election of D. C.

STATES PATIENTLY PAR1S, May 26 (By the Associated Press) Representatives of tne new states carved out of the former Haps burg monarchy were given a hearing today before the reparations commis sion to present their objection to the proposed solution of the Austria-Hungarian financial prblem, under which they would be held responsible for their share of the pre-war debt, the war debt the war issue of currency, and repar ations and would be requested to com pensate Austria and Hungary as they will be constituted in the future, for the value of the public buildings and prop erty inside their limits. The protests against this great bur den were met sympathetically by- the council of four, which sent the question to the reparations sub-commission for a rehearing. This sub-commission will ! tie supplemented ' by Franco-British representatives, who are-understood to be opposed to any change. The beleif is held here that a new report will be made, exempting the new states from any payments on ac count of reparation of public property taken over. The prime factor in the negotiations heretofore has been the fact that about three billoin francs of the Austrian pre-war debt is held in France, and the French government has promised to secure repayment to its nationals. Hence it has been anxious to distrib ute the financial burden, in order to prevent the bankruptcy of the new Austrfa and Hungary. An exclusive dispatch from Paris to the Associated Press last - Thursday said it had been learned in trustworthy quarters there that the United States, Great Britain and France had united in sending a note to Italy, requesting an explanation of the landing of Ital ian forces in Turkey. The dispatch added that as a result of the request an incident occurred during a meeting of the council of four. .When Premier Orlando entered the council chamber, President Wilson ad dressed the Italian premier directly, asking what the answer was to the note of the three powers. Signor Orlando replied that he was prepared to explain to the council, but would not do so until Premier Venl zelos of Greece withdrew from the chamber. President Wilson, it was ueclared, insisted on Venizelos remain ing, but Orlando was obdurate. V eni- ! zelos finally left andvlater the council i expressed its regret to the Greek pre mier for the incident. FORMER COMMITTEES conn ew IT LEAGUE OTCLES Reed's Speech Keen Analy sis of Race Feature Says Charter Gives One Negro of Panama. Vote Equality With 500,000 White Amer icans Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, May 26. The lea gue of nations was debated in the sen ate again today with an increasing show of bitterness. Senator Reed, democrat of Missouri. attacked the proposal in such vigorous terms that he aroused repeated objec tions from senators supporting it and developed a running debate, colored by dramatic accusations, and heated retorts. The Missouri senator declared the league would place the destinies of the white race m the hands of ignorant and superstitious nations of black and yellow populations, and charged that many democrats were supporting It for partisan reasons. In frequent interruptions of Senator Reed's speech. Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, ranking democrat of the for eign relations committee, insisted that the premises for these charges were false and that the inference drawn were unfair and dangerous. He drew in return a reply from Senator Knox, republican of Pennsylvania, who sug gested that supporters of the league covenant should read it before they dis cussed it. So heated did the exchanges become at one point that the chair rapped for order and Senator Reed declared that Senator Hitchcock had 'lost his tem per." Would Surrender White Rule The measure which brought the lea gue issue before the senate was the resolution of Senator Johnson, repub lican of California, requesting from the state department the full text of the peace treaty. There was no attempt to reach a vote on the resolution and the measure went over again as un finished business, to come up when tbe senate reconvenes Wednesday. With out spaking directly on the Johnson resolution. Senator Reed made a gen eral attack on the covenant itself, as a proposal to hand over control of the white race and the civilized world to an assembly of nations where a majority always could be brought together on any race question, in opposition to white supremacy. He declared support of the plan nev er could be explained at home by sen ators from the south, with its negrc problem, or from the west, with its Chinese and Japanese problems. Turn ing dramatically to his democratic colleagues, he continued : "If a republican president had brought it here if Roosevelt had brought it here there isn't a democrat that wouldn't have been standing by my side fighting to the last ditch to rescue the country from bo monstrous and so cruel a thing.- One Negro Made Powerful Senator Hitchcock interjected that Mr. Reed confused the powers of the league membership with those of the council, . but this was denied by Mr. Reed. Analyzing racial and moral condi tions in Honduras, Panama and other small nations, which would have league membership. Senator Reed said "Oh, you men of the south you 'lily-whites-' Tou want to give Panama, with its 90 per cent of negroes and mu lattos, a vote equal to the United States. Go tell your people that, in the league, one negro outside the United States would have a vote equal to 500, 000 whites of this republic" Southern democrats particularly were chided for refusing to recognize tho negro as an equal at the ballot box, but at the same time accepting South Afri ca, and other nations, where the black race predominates as members of tbe league assembly, on an equality with the United States. In his speech of nearly three hours. Senator Reed presented a mass of sta tistics and other information regard ing the smaller members of the league. The member nations in which the white race was predominant, he said, totaled in population, 289.48S.80C while those where other races are in the majority had a population of 811. 425,000. He said white nations would have fifteen votes in the league and other nations seventeen. Illiteracy is 85 Per Cent In these countries, he asserted, the average of illitracy was S5 per cenL and he quoted extensively from refer ence works to show that many of tbero were overrun with superstition. While the Missouri senator was es safling the league in the senate, rep resentative Madden, republican of Il linois, made a speech critiizing it in the house, and declaring the American people never mingle on equal terms with the peoples of Europe. No gen eral debate developed however. When the Johnson resolution comes up in the senate Wednesday, Senator Robinson, democrat of Arkansas, ex pects to open debate with a speech supporting the league. BORAH TO PAY HIS RESPECTS TO PENROSE Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, May 26 Republican senate cdmmittee assignments, although approved at a republican conference to day, over the opposition of the progres sive group, will come up for discussion at a public party conference tomorrow. The cal! was issued by Senator Lodge at the" request of progressive senators who aid that, given an opportunity to express publicly their opposition to Senators Penrose of Pennsylvania and Warren of Wyoming, for chairmen of the finance and appropriations commit tees, respectively, they would not carry their opposition to the floor of the senate. Senator Borah of Idaho, said the pro gressives would co-operate to prevent -democratic control of the senate. WIPE OUT REGIMENT COPENHAGEN, May 26.
