"Wallace of Des Moines, X for secretary of agriculture was ver-ridden by a vote of the conven tion. The vote endorsing Wallace cam after charges had been made n the convention floor that opposition to Wallace came from the big meat packers. Taken as a whole, today's session of th convention was a bad one for the big packing companies. During the dis cussion of the Wallace resolution sev eral broadsUUs were firel In tho di rection of the big; rackers, while earlier W.

"They tell us." declared Turney, "that in the business of the packer there Is absolutely the sharpest kind of competition, that they actually fight each other. The American Packers' association rerorts come to me, but I have never discovered In them any divergence of opinion. Now you men have divergence of opinion, you have Clfferenc.es, you have hot arguments, bat I have never heard rf a disagree ment between the five big ones, or the 24 little ones.

In other words, that (Swift, Morris, Wil txm and Cudahy have no more to do with naming the salt price of their wholesale product than an outsider. ""Li's see how that statement works out. The packers have given us the Information that this has been the most disastrous year almost In their history. It has been said that the srrtunt credit due the packers was that they absorbed your product when It came, fat or lean, when it came by thousand or by millions, that they always had the money and paid you something for It. whether they needed It er not. During this past fall animals of every kind and price remained in the Kansas City stockyards and In the Chicaro atockyarxls eating $40 hay that cost 111 cut year before last, un til they grew so thin that they almost lew away, and no packer, no spec ulator and no country buyer appeared to tax them off your hands. So that grat pronouncement that they never fl one unbought has been exploded. Assails "Big Five" Tha packers tell us that It was a bad year, and yet Mr. Louis Swift says that by figuring around a little, pull ing here and pulling there, he was able for the year 1920 to declare a dividend f twelve million dollars 8 per cent on about JUO.OOO.OQQ. -Where did the $150,000,000 come from? Who made the $150,000,000 upon which, during a panic, during a ferlod of world distress they can ue- rlare a $12,000,000 dividend, and what will they be able to do If somebody doesn't took after their business? "And while they were making this big dividend they gave you nothing for the hide: they allowed you noth ing for the other by-products worth mentioning because they said they were non-salable.

Leased Wire WASHINGTON. Jan. 12 An Amer ican call for a world disarmament con ference would be welcomed by the great powers of Europe and would disclose the "next Germany" should any nation refuse to agree to disarm. General Tasker II. Bliss told the house naval committee today. The general gave the Impression he had gained through discussion with European statesmen and soldiers white a member of the supreme war council and of the peace commission. He said there was an Immediate de sire for disarmament but added that until a definite agreement had beew5 reached he would not diaarm one American soldier or lay up ope 'Amer ican Ehlp. General Bliss also said the United States should complete her naval building rrogram. The committee re ceived from Secretary Daniels a state ment as to the relative naval strength of the world powers shewing that of the United States to be midway be tween that of Great Britain and Japan. His figures Indicated, however, that with the completion of the preaent au thorized construction of the three na tions, the American capital ship power would be as great as that of Great Britain, but with the ratio over Japan slightly reduced. The committee concluded temporar ily its disarmament hearing pending discussion by the members of its fu ture program. Chairman Butler, who recently returned from a conference with President-elect Harding, said that "within a very few months defi nite action will be taken along the llneg we are discussing." The senate foreign relations com mittee also concluded today Its hear ings on pending disarmament resolu tions. Senator Borah. Republican, Idaho, a member of the committee, predicted that his proposal for nego tiations looking to an agreement be tween the United States. Great Brit ain and Japan for a reduction of naval construction would be favorably re ported in amended form.

Shevlin, supervising prohibition agent 'for the border district, announced today that public service car stands that en gage in the liquor traffic will be put out of business as public' nuisances and kept closed for one year. . Decision to make war on liquor selling automobile stands followed a conference with the United States district attorney. Proceed ings, under the nuisance clause of the Volstead act will be com menced at once against two serv ice car concerns in El Paso. "We propose to teach bootleggers they cannot operate from garages and suffer only the loss of one car and a fine," said Supervisor Shevlin. laborWfight setbacks by use OF NORFOLK IDE Republican A. P. Leased Wire vTASIUNGTON, Jan. i. Labor's answer to recent legal and legislative setbacks, may be to fight capital with capital itself. An experiment called "the Norfolk Idea" conducted by the International Association of Machinists is being much discussed and it is said, is about to be repeated on the Pacific coast. In brief the Norfolk idea is the use of capital, assets, and credit of organized labor, in the fight to force employers io meet its demands. As explained by E. C. Davison, sec retary of the machinists, there w'as a strike in the Crescent Iron Works at Norfolk, va., in 1920. The labor union strategy waa simple: The outstanding oMigations of the Crescent Iron Works were bouaht ud. and control thus having been gained, support was furnished, through extension of credit and active co-operation of affiliated branches of organized labor. Mr. Davison estimated that his as sociation saved more than $200,000 in that contest, while the savings to its members was probably double that. When the Iron Masters' association declared for an open shop in 1920, Investigation disclosed that there was an overdue mortgage of $40,000 on the Crescent works. Mr; Davison, acting for the union, attempted to buy up the mortgage, but the bank refused to selL Further inquiry disclosed that many of the bank's depositors were members of unions and steps were taken which resulted in a sudden de crease of the institution's deposits. The ofrer to purchase the mortgage being renewed, the bank consented, Mr. Davison explained. A "show down" with the manage ment of the Crescent Iron Works fol lowed, Mr. Davison said, the outcome being the reopening of, the plant as a union Shop. Soon, however, according to Mr. Davison, Norfolk bankers refused to advance credit for current transactions to the Crescent Works, and jobbers, he said, refused to sell lt3 equipment. The machinists' union deposited with a Norfolk bank sufficient cash to cov er immediate needs and met the prob lem by arranging with out-of-town firms for the articles. "When we had explained these planp to local merchants," Secretary Davison explanied, "they readily consented to reopening their accounts.' Influence of the union also wa utilized to obtain orders for the plant. This was accomplished largely through cooperation with members of the Nor folk Pilots' association and through the friendship of the closely unionized crews of most foreign ships which put into Norfolk for repairs, Mr. Davi son Bald. The union then extended its opera tions by moving to the assistance of two small shops which were in finan cial difficulties. Proponents of the Norfolk idea in Bist that it offers a legitimate, eco nomical and expeditious way of ob taining relief at least In isolated cases. The union did not aim at worker ownership, Mr. Davison declared, but simply moved to prevent what it con sidered utilization of capital, produced by its members, against their own in terests. o Beauty Specialists Prescribe Whiskey? Republican A. P. Leased Wire CHICAGO, Jan. 12. Whisky as an aid to the complexion has appeared on the prescription lists of beauty special ists, according to information reach ing the federal district attorney today. He declared beauty specialists had no authority to issue liquor prescriptions. o Harding Suggests Officials Modify Simplicity Ideas Republican A. P. Leased Wire MARION, Ohio, Jan. 12 Upssttlng for the second time plans for his Inaug uration, President-elect Harding sug gested to officials at Washington today that they had gone further than neces sary toward simplicity by deciding to hold the ceremony In the senate chamber. Observance of the usual custom of taking the oath on th east portico of the capital, Mr. Harding telegraphed, -would be quite agreeable to him and would permit a much greater number of spectators. If no money were spent in the election of special stands, he .said, there could be no objection from the viewpoint of economy." In his previous messages asking for a simple ceremony, the president-elect had HUg?stcd that the oath be ad ministered either within the ranitnl .on the east portico. The congressional I committee's decision to a.dort the ! former course however, resulted in vig orous protests from many who had ar '. ranged to fro to Washington, and Mr. Harding said today that he considered a popular desire to hear the inaugural .oldress. "natural and becoming." fm the other hand, telegrams com mending the decision for a curtailment I of the usuail inaugural pomp were ji-r-ele public today at Harding's head quarters and Mr. Harding expressed j the opinion that his course had the ap Pioval cf tha tf.oi'!e general; v. WORKABLE TARIFF MEASURE ILL BE FRAMED TO 1EET MEDIATE Republican Leaders Plan To Revise Underwood Act Despite Chaotic Foreign Exchange Situation Republican A. P. Leased Wtre WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 Republican leaders in congress propose to frame a workable, permanent tariff law de spite the chaotic foreign exchange sit uation and the uncertainties of foreign labor conditions. Chairman Fordney of the house ways and means committee declared today during discussion of a revision of the Underwood act. Witnesses before the committee called attention to what they describe as an effort by Europeans, and espe cially English and Germans, to reach their products to America to hasten a readjustment of exchange rates. The statements brought from Representa tive Garner, uemocrat, cf lexas, a question as to whether it were possible to draft a law which would meet fu ture conditions, assuming rates would be restored to normal within a year or two. T think it will be impossible." H. L. Henry, Geneva, N. Y., manufacturer, replied, "to draft a tariff that will be workable under present conditions. Fu ture adjustments cannot be forecast and rates that may be good now will serve no purpose later on." "You spoke a parable then," said Mr. Garner. "But our Republican friends insist that we should go ahead. They will attempt the Impossible." Mr. Gamer's statement was cut short by Mr. Fordney, who interjected: "We stand on our declaration. It is our plan to frame a new tariff and we are going to do it. The exchange sit uation presents difficulties, but we think those can be surmounted." Witnesses, each of whom were al lotted ten minutes . today, requested higher tariff rates, but few were able to suggest specific duties. As a rule they suggested only a revival of the Payne-Aldrich tariff schedules. Particular attention was given by the witnesses to discussion of the rapid recovery of German industries. Those Industries, it was testified, have re cuperated more rapidly than American business men had believed possible and the committee was urged to prepare a barrier against the inflow antici pated. Germans, the committee was told, are working at wages belaw those paid prior to the war. The question of whether the pay ultimately would go up or down was submitted to the com matter for determination in the draw ing of a new tariff law. o Ship Owners Say Immigration Law Is Not Necessary Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON. Jan. 12 Five wit nesses today told the senate immigra tion committee that the United States was in no danger of a "floor" of unde sirable aliens and that no emergency existed to justify the suspension of laws and adoption of the Johnson bill prohibiting immigration for one year. Four were officials of trans-Atlantic steamship companies, who said their information failed to indicate any great increase in Europeans desiring to emigrate to the United States. On the contrary, they said, "there was al ready a diminution izt the numbers of incoming passengers," They credited the decrease to the fact that unemployment was known to exist in the United States. The steamship agents included Law son Sandford of the American line; R. H. Farley of the International Mer cantile Marine company; S. E. Morse, secretary of the trans-Atlantic pas senger conference; and Percy What mough of the Cunard company. All declared it would be impossible, even with the use of ships of all types, to bring more than 995,000 immigrants in 1921. ' The fifth witness, F. C. Harley, San Francisco, secretary of the National Immigration council, pleaded for "pick and shovel laborers' rather than for men of educated classes. He asked that the literacy test be waived to per mit the workers to enter and declared the danger of immigration centered in educated aliens of the radical and agitator class. Discussing distribution of aliens, Mr. Sanford said that of 1,995 persons .who arrived recently from Trieste, 22 per cent went to Ohio; 11.16 per cent to Illinois, 4.1 per cent to Michigan, 20.18 per cent to Pennsylvania, 4.76 per cent to New Jersey, 3 per cent to New York state, 3.85 per cent to Wisconsin, 2.30 per cent to California and 2.51 per cent to Indiana. o . . Officials Deny Rumor Of Oriental Roundup Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON. Jan. 12 Officials of the department of labor, state and justice who could be reached tonight professed to know nothing of a round up of Orientals and Mexicans illegally within the. United States announced as set for January 22, by Leo Russell, chief deporting agent of the bureau of immigration. , One department of labor official said that although he knew of no plans for a concerted drive against Chinese, Japanese and Mexicans who had smuggled themselves into the country, a number or raids had been made recently and more undoubtedly were in prospect. o Alleged Embezzler Sent To Sanatorium SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12. Carlos Carmel Garcia, former paymaster in the Mexican army, awaiting extradi tion on a charge of embezzling $60,000 Mexican government funds, today was ordered by the- T mted Slates district court to be sent to a sanitarium on account of his health. Garcia, who has been out on bond since July, 1920, was confined a year in the county Jail here before furnishing bond. Wade Smiles When Jury Says Murder . In First Degree Republican A. P. Leased Wire BRIDGEPORT, Conn, Jan.' 12. Elwood B. Wade, 23, was found guilty of murder in the first de gree tonight for the killing of George E. Nott, in Nott's home here August 291920. The jury had been out six hours. Sentence will be pronounced tomorrow. The penalty in this state is hanging. Wade took the verdict with a smile on his face. While the youth was calm, Elbert O. Wade, his father, was deeply affected. Sobs ' shook his frame and tears flowed freely. After Judge Hinman had ordered the court v room cleared, young Wade stood up, stretched himself and reached for his hat and coat. With the sheriff he left for the county jail. ROCKifil BALLOON FLIGHT ILL BE PROBED WASHINGTON. Jan. 12. Secretarv Daniels announced tonight that a court of inquiry would be convened at the Rockaway, N. Y., air station upon tha arrival there of Lieutenants HInton. Farrell and Kloor, to inquire into all the circumstances of the balloon flight which carried the three officers from Rockaway Beach to the shores of Hud son Bay. Mr. Daniels said that a court of In quiry, had not been ordered and he was not sure whether the order would be sent from his office or the matter left to the commandant at Ttockawav Whatever course Is pursued, the pre cept and powers of the court, he said, would be broad. The court, in its investigation of the reported sale of the aeronauts' letters, Mr. Daniels said, probably will inquire into rumors that letters were offered for sale by persona In the naval service. Also reports that the balloon left Rock away with insufficient provisions and no fire arms will be Investigated, he added. Mr. Daniels was asked if L'eutenant Farrell would have an opportunity to ask the court to investigate . any charges he thought might have been made by brother officers detrimental to his character in connection, with the exploit. "If Lieutenant Farre'l thinks that anything has been said injurious to his reputation be can present it to this court," Mr. Daniels replied. The secretary earlier had "deplored"' the clash between Lieutenants Far rell and HInton. BALLOON ISTS FORGET FIGHT MATTICE. Ont Jan. 12. The three American naval balloonists who ar rived yesterday from Moose Factory, fnear where they descended Dec. 14, left (tonight for Cochrane on th east bound Canadian National express. The fight between Lteutenarts Far rell and HfcCon shortly after their ar rival yesterday was ascribed, in a statement, to overwrought minds in duced "by their hardships and gruelling struggles." The statement. Lieutenant Kloor said, was prepared by him at tno direc tion of Hinton and Firrc'.l, who had mended their differences. The three officers were together in the private car of H. B. Way. divisional superin tendent of the Canadian National rail ways. On several occasion?, the statement said, after a long and tiresome walk, one or two of us would become gnn'Chy and at the s.igv.test "inv.tation would make a fuss. These q tarrels were just temporary disagreements. Almost as quickly as they would start they would end. "As commander of the balloon I flew to Moose Factory I had perfect liberty to select any of the officers at the station to accompany me on au thorization from the commanding; of ficer. In picking my pissenrere, Lieutenant Hinton and Lieutenant Far rell, I selected them because they were two of my best friemls ana tbems-Wes' good comrades. "During the trip all of us have been ready to make sacr;f ces for on5 an other. We have fought our battles a? befits shipmates and tha traditions of the navy. We have done our best to uphold our own dignity a we.l as that of the service. We always will be brbthers. "Such petty quarrels as may have occurred will not lessen our affection.! Today after the first real rest since we left Moose Factory our difficulties patched up and our friendship re newed, we canfiot emphasize too strongly that there is not and has not been any misunderstanding in our party other than of a passing nature." Hinton admitted he had written the letter that caused the quarrel, but de clared he had not intended it for pub lication and was sorry. Belief io this statement was expressed by Farrell, who alluded to Hinton as "my old pal." They indicated that the incident was closed. The train bearing the officers prob ably will reach Toronto between 3 and 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. They intend leaving Toronto for New York at 6 p. m.

Intention of the American government to care fully investigate the fatal shooting by a Japanese sentry yesterday at Vladi vostok of Lieutenant W. H. Langdon. chief engineer of the American cruiser Albany, was evidenced in action taken tenight by two departments of the government. The state department, upon bain Informed of the bare details in a re port from Consul MacGowan at Vladi vostok, directed the consul to forward a more complete report. The navy department received two reports from Admiral Albert Gleaves, commander in chief of the Asiatio fleet, who said that he planned to leave today aboard the destroyer El liott for Shanghai, where he will board the cruiser New Orleans and proceed to Vladivostok to Investigate. The dispatches emphasized that Japanese officials were showing every evidence of regret. Consul MacGowan reported tnat the Japanese consul general had called upon him and ex pressed his "profound regret." Ad miral Gleaves said the Japanese of ficials were much concerned and had" made frequent calls offering every as sistance. The state department announced its receipt of the renort from rvnoni nr-j.

The telegram from American Consul MacGowan, Vladivostok, re ported that the Japanese consul gen eral at Vladivostok had called on him to express his profound regrtft." Admiral Gleaves In his first report gave preliminary details as to th shooting. He reported that the lieu tenant was returning to his shop and was in front of Japanese division headquarters when shot, his death occuring later. The admiral in a second report said "Japanese officer Reports as ftfl. lows: "Sentry claims his suspicions wer aroused by seeing a foreigner flashing a hand lamp, that he ran across th street and called to him to halt and that as he came near, the foreigner fired one revolver shot at him; that he fired his rifle and then the foreign er fired two more shots and sentry fired one more shot.
