The value of silver goes climb

excited. It took a big war, how

Today the metal in a silver dol

shamefully in the war settlement.
The city of Fiume, which is
Italian, the northeast coast of the
Adriatic, that was the property of
the people of Italy for centurie?,
should have gone to Italy when
the war ended.
In the days of Cavour, Mazxiri,

that until Bismarck came along.
Napoleon sympathized ?vith the
Hapeburgs. r.ot with the HLerty

with Austria the unredeeme-J Ital

LY BELONGS to Italy.
The United States show, laek of
justice, lack of appreciation for th?.?
splendid work mat the Ita-ians
have done for liberty and for in?

But, good comes out of evil. A

of this Republic's unfair treat

LONDON". Nov. 26.?Charged with
making seditious utterances, the Rev.
Father O'Donnell, a chaplain in t-he
Australian forces, was arraigned be
fore a court-martial today at Guild
Hall. He pleaded not guilty.
Father OTXinnell is accused of say
ing in a epf-ech at Killarney that "the
Australians fought for the independ
ence of small nations, while inde
pendence was denied Ireland by a few
satellites of the King who were filling
their pock-ts at the expense of the
workers and on whose heads was the
blood of Irish patriots."
Lieutenant Chambers, of the Br *
ish army, presentad notes in support
of the charge against the chaplain.
It was declared that Father O'Donnell
had further said that he considered
"a king and royal family of no use to
this or any other country," and ex
pressed hope that the recent railway
strike waa the beginning of a revo
The accused was charged with say
ing that King George, evidently fear
ing the same (revolution), ordered
the premier to quash the strike.
Another specification in the charges
was that Father O'Donnell had pre
dicted that Ireland would "shortly
strike against the tyrannical British I
The chaplain was also charged with
saying that sympathy with the 8inn

suit brought against her mother,

Painted Famous Pen-ons.
The palintiff is Adolfo Muller-Ury,

former Attorney General Gregory,
Mark Hanna, Mr. and Mrs. Chaun?-ey

His claim covers two portraits, ot*??
of the debutante and one of the

Artist's Own Story.
The artist thus relat?d his story of
the manner in which he obtained the
order to paint the two portraits:
"At a certain dinner party at the
home of Mrs. Lewis Nixon, April 14,

Simonds, and I agreed to do so, it
being und?-rstood between us that 1
was to be paid my regular standard
price therefor.
"Subsequently, at the request of
Mrs. Gummere, I went to White Sul
phur Springs, W> Va., for the purpose
of painting the portraits. Mrs. Gum

Socialists and Catholics Plan
Opposition to Approval
of Pact.
ROME. Nov. 26 (delayed).?A hard
fight against ratification of the peace
treaty, which may precipitate a crisis
involving existence of the monarchy,
was Indicated here today.
Socialist and Catholic deputies, in
the recently elected chamber, will
combine to defeat the pact, it wa?
said. The signal for the fight was
expected to be production In the
?"hamper of Deputies of a royal de
cree ratifying the treaty, for conver
sion into a law.
Both the Catholics and Socialists,
who f-xhibited unusual strength in the
recent election, have ?.pposed the
treaty from the beginning.
Awaited With -tlUglvlag.
The coming session of the chamber
is awaited with misgiving. There is
no precedent in Italian history for re
jection of a royal decree, especially a
peace treaty. The treaty right ia a
constitutional pcrogativ?? of the crown.
Should the Socialist plans succeed,
the outcome of such a solemn dis
avowal of the King's wishes prac
tically would necessitate his abdica
tion, in the be'ief of many Italian
Whether the Catholics will be will
ing to support the Socialists in a flat
showdown against the King is consid
ered doubtful by many. On the other
haml, it is considered certain they
will maintain unflagging opposition
to the Versailles treaty, which it wa?
said, the Holy See considers contains
the source of new wars.

Prospect of Settlement Looms

No Breakdown of S.trike Unless
31 Per Cent Raise Is Grant

The Cabinet is battling with the
coal crisis again today, ?with the
prospect of a final settlement in the
next few hours.
The Government was to make ite
"final statement" to the coal minen?
and operators late this afternoon.

Miners grimly say that there will
be no breakdown of the strike if less
than a 31 per cent increase is grant
ed them, while the operators are none
the less positive in their stand that
they must have carte blanche to im
pose large increases on the public if
the workers are to be given a rais?
of more than 20 per cent.

is evident that President Wilson will
have to be called in.
