MIpHT SET PACE FOR U. S. Rome Protests German Export Tax-Seeks Greater Share In Indemnity. LONDON, Feb. 24.-Great Brit ain is called upon to "set an ezample to the world" by canceling the war debts owed to her by Italy and Franca, in a note addressed to the Allies by the Italian government, it was learmed this afternoon. The demand in the note was Italy's share of German be incresad from 10 per gat tbo 20 to 28 per cent. .APg nOUMaN EXPORT. Italy protesta that she would sut fer eeonomially by the enforcement at the Paris decision to collect a 12 ee Mt ta upon German exports. i r iott Is based pnea the fact that I$aly 14 a large importer of Ger man gods, and that the Germans udght be expected to increase the prices of hr exported merchandise to meet the ad valorem tat.

Italy Is *ot raising a nai question by ine ra.g her indemnity demand.4 er sicE-it has become apparent at Italy Could expect little or noth ing from Austria, she has been press ing for a larger share of the money which the Allies expect to get from Germany. Her note, however, brings the matter to a head and places it in concrete form for discussion by the Allies when the indemnity conference is held here next month. The Italian note promises to put complications in the way of the Al lied statesmen when they assemble here on or about March 4 to hear the German counter-proposals. Italy's at titude, it is said by officials, may hearten the Germans to make stronger protests upon the assumption that the Allies are not united. M'ADO OPPOSES' PARTY SCHEMING Says G. 0. P.

PdHerbert Hoover today announced his ase oeptance of the post of geee tary of Commerce In President elect Harding's cabinet is not defnite, but depended upon his being given a free hand in making the Department of Commerce a larger and more important factor in the govern ment, and upon his being al lowed to direct relief work for starving European children. Hoover said he had submitted to Harding certain proposals for reorganizing the Depart ment of Commerce. which he termed at present but a "group of bureaus of a salentific char acter not directly connected with our commerce." He said American prosperity during the nest four or Ave years depends. largely upon our foreign trade and that there were vast op portunities for establishing a government department that would render a great service to American trade. Hoover pointed out that he had accepted a commission from a large body of the American people to direct relief work for the starving children of Central Europe, numbering some 3,500, 000, and that he did not be lieve it propitious to abandon that, work. LABOR TO WAR Leadeft Meet Today to Plan Strategic Fight A ginst "Legal Abuse. Samuel Gomperspres en "e the American Federation of Labor, yesterday issued a state ment calling on organized labor to meet attacks "by plutocratic reaction" and "Insidious propa ganda of European insanity." The Times' headline-"Gom pers Asks Labor to Arm"- may have been misleading. There was nothing in Mr. Gompers' state ment indicating advocacy of physical violence, or preparation for armed warfare. With war declared upon the in junction as a weapon in labor dis putes, labor leaders met here today as a board of strategy to plan their campaign against "judge-made law." Heads of the national and inter national unions affiliated with the American Inderation of Labor to day concentrated upon means by which "labor's bill of rights," drawn up in conference yesterday, may be given effective recognition. OPPOSE INJUNCTION. The labor leaders have virtually laid down the gauntlet to the incom ing Administration and have ' made plain the policies which labor will accept and those policies which labor will ight. Unqualified opposition to the use of the injunction in labor disputes and open rebellion against it were embraced Id the "bill of rights" adopted. "The injunction, as it is now nued and abused in labor disputes, Is with out sanction either in the Constitu tion or in the fndamental law cf the land," the labor conference declare~d. "It is pure usurpation of power and authority. The only possible and practical remedy in the face cf a pow er so usurped and so 4omipletelyv un justified lies in a flat refusal on the part of laboT to recognize or abidei by the terms of injurnctions which seek to prohibit the doing of acts which the workers have a lawful ant guar anteed right to do."

HOLMES. laternatiensl News hSeveb. ST. AUGUSTINE. Fla.. Feb. 24. A meeting between President Hard ing and ex-Preuident Wilson some time after March 4, in order to clear up some of the beclouded aspects of the Paris Peace Conferene. is re garded as not unlikely by the ad visers of the new President. WORINaD over DnUT. While Senator Harding has been and still Is largely occupied with the formation of his Cabinet and with the numerous other matters ineidential to his entrance into the Presideney a week hence, he nevertheless has been following with keen interest de velopments concerning the allied In debtedness to the United States, real Ising that this problem will be one of the drst and most pressing which will face his administration at the outset. President Wilson's commuslestlep to the Senate of the fact that there was an understnd i with the French and Britid at ris relative to the soceptane of enan bonds in lies of Belgium 4e came as " c o n s id e r a b le q g ! 0 ,,, R a rd in g of President ilson's el a advisers at the #aris eent formied Senater Harding In a confob epee hike that he would be "us free as the alr" in dealing with foreign debt problems. Lamont, in a public statement after the conference with the President elect, declared that so far as he knew there wae no commitments of any kind at Paris on the debt problem and that in future dealings the ad ministration would be unhampered in any way. MAY MEET P3SIDENT. In order to deal intelligently with the foreign relations of the new Ad ministration it will be ne essary, it was pointed out here today, for Sena tor Harding to be informed fully on the understandings that were reach ed at Paris. It is believed by those around the new President that only one man can supply this information and that is President Wilsen. Hence a meeting is regarded as not unlikely. A conference between Senator Harding and President Wilson last .December came very aoese to being brought about when Senator Harding was in Washington. At that time Senator Harding did not feel like re questing such a conference and the President did not see fit to extend a formal invitation, so the matter fell through. The relative situations will be wholly changed after March 4. As President, Senator Harding can with peffect propriety invite Woodrow Wilson, as a private citisen, to a con ference, with the assurance, also, that such an Invitation would probably be accepted with alacrity. DMLUGMD WITH MES5AGUS The Cabinet situation remained un changed today, so far as could be learned here. The Cabinet has been tentatively selected, except for sole uncertainty regarding the labor aj pointment, and unless hoere are sesie unforeseen developmeits, will stadd as selected. accorwng to those close to the President-elect. Publication of the tentative slate has resulted in Harding headquartere being deluged with messages and telegrams concerning the various ap pointments. The vast majority of these have been favorabe, although it was admitted today that some have been received in protest against spe citic appointments. Today Senator Harding planned to work some more on his Inaugural ad dress. Few callers were expected. The conference list of the President-elect has been lightened almost to the van ish lug point in vIew of the short time re maining of his stay here and the considerable aqmount of work which remaains to be a~comiplished.
