FARMERS TO GIVE I SUPPORT TO LABOR Working Alliance to Be Perfect ed at Chicago Meeting. Labor Party Issue. The farmesr of the nation will soon be caTIed upon to suport labor in the economic crisis confronting American Industry. * A meeting has been called for the first week of November, in Chicago, by representatives of the four broth erhoods and the American Federation of Labor, at which practically all the so-called "liberal group" of farmers, including those composing the Farm ers' National Council, will be present. A hard-and-fast working alliance, along the lines already laid down by the Central Labor Union of Chicago with the Non-Partisan League, will be perfected. One of the first aims of the alliance will be to send a huge delegation to Washington to protest against the passage of the Cummins bill, which returns the railroads to private ownership and prohibits strikes on them. Blew Labor Party. Action also will be taken with ref erence to the strengthening of the new Labor party In Illinois, of which John Fltxpatrick, leader of the strik ing steel workers. Is a dominant force. The farmer-labor bloc in Minnesota has become so powerful as to threat en the overthrow of the old-Une par ties in that State, according to labor leaders, and they are anxious that the same pooling of Interests be effected in as many States as possible. It is recognised that in certain communi ties where the farmer is conservative and reactionary In type, no such al liance is possible. AM Steel Striker*. Another matter to be discussed will b? united support of the Plumb plan and the extension of financial support to the steel strikers from financial in terests. One of the Important devel opments In regard to the steel strike is that the railroad brotherhoods have determined to pursue a more aggres sive policy In regard to it. The rail way shopmen in Pennsylvania are giving the most effective kind of sup port to the steel workers, although they are not on strike, and the nature of other brotherhood support of the steel workers will be made apparent as time goes on. Important/develop ments are Imendlng in western Penn sylvania. The labor forces which are advocating a general strike of all or ganised labor In that section are rap idly gaining force. It Is not likely that the general strike ever will gain the sanction of organised labor, but drastic policy will be framed which Is aimed to make the United States Steel Corporation realise the true strength of the enemy it is dealing with. EXPECT BRITISH j PREMIER TO QUIT London Newspapers Empha size Gravity of Situation as Result of Defeat. LONDON. Oct. 24.?The Lloyd Oeorge government faces a serious situation as the result of last night's defeat In the House of Commons, according to the opinion generally expressed by the press today. The question on which the govern ment lost 18a to 113 was a minor one ?having to do with an amendment to the alien bill?but the impression prevailed that the vote was an Indi cation of parliament's attitude to- I ward the present cabinet. As soon as the vote was announced, Andrew Bonar Law, go\eminent spokesman, obtained an adjournment until Monday, to permit the cabinet to decide upon Its next move. ' Many officials and political experts pro fessed to believe that reslgation of Premier Lloyd George was certain. The amendment to the alien bill, offered by Home Secretary Shortt would have changed the clause bar ring all aliens from receiving Brit ish pilots' certificates to exclude the French, so as not to conflict with the Anglo-French agreement of 1913. Unionists and laborites united in de feating the amendment. Even In case the otibinet decides not to re sign en bloc, it was believed that Shortt, as author of the amendment, would. "If the government's defeat is further sustained, or Its attempt at rehabilitation Inadequate, Lloyd Oeorge must resign," the Chronicle ?aid today. "The King doubtless will entrust him with formation of a new ministry, bnt from whence will he derive his support? It was the coalition itself that brought down the administration. Lloyd George will be compelled to seek fresh au thority at a gf-neral election." "This (the defeat) alone is not suf ficient cause for resignation." In the opinion of the Post, "but it indicates that Commons is disappointed re garding the government. The de feat was due to the government's ob stinacy in disregarding national se curity."

Gaskill, Jr., prosecutor for Atlantic county, today tpread a net work which he expects to entangle the kidnapers with a short time. It Is believed that "J. P." is one of a band which abducted the two-year old Dansey boy and has now repented and turned informer, and that an other member of the band. a. woman, whose description the police have, is speeding West with the boy on a fast train. That she will be able to make good her escape with the child seems almost Impossible, for the police of all the clUea" on her route have been notified, and- the - moment #fce steps from the train with the kidnaped child she will be placed under ar rest. j.. - _ nra<-rl|rtlon GItm by "J.

Truman, Hammonton. It asked him to send a bit of the boy's clothing and not to "torture an agonized mother's heart." "Further information about the woman kidnaper was refused by the pr<<seoutor. He refused to answer questions about her probable motive, or her relation to the Dansey family. He also refuses to say Just where the traJn carrying the woman is now, but it is believed here that the search which he ordered today Is centered between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. The Dansey family formerly lived in 'Pittsburgh. Another story was vicariated today to the effect that a woman ih a Western city had seen a wbman arid a small boy on the street, and having ask*d the bey_M* name received the reply, "Billy Pittsburgh."
