CO FERENCE OF PROGRESSIVES I CALLED TO WIEET LaFoIfette and Huddleston Plan to Organize This Element in Congress, An nouncement Says, REACTIONARIES WERE REBUKED ON NOV. 7 Plan to Defeat the Adminis tration Ship Subsidy Bill and Proposed Anti-Strike Legislation, Washington, Nov. I S. A call for a national conference of progres sives to meet hero December 1 and 2, and organize a progressive group in congress was issued tonight by Senator LaFollette, republican, Wisconsin, and Representative Huddleston, democrat, Alabama, chairman and vice chairman, re spectively, of the people's legisla tive service. Formation of not only a cohesive progressive bloc in the senate and house, but also a national council of. progressives, without regard to parWy, was the apparent object of the movement. There was no men tion of a third political party. (Sen ator LaFollette declared a new party must bo a matter of evolu tion and could not be established through meetings of any group of men and adoption of resolutions. The call proposed a meeting of progressive members of congres? December 1, and of a gathering or progressive leaders generally . on December 2. Invitations to the latten meeting were sent, it was announced, to a "representative group of influential progressive men and women throughout the country" whoso names were not divulged. Hcpllog Requested. Telegraphic replies were re quested and it was said the name of those accepting would be an nounced as replies were received Previous to announcement of the conference, Senator LaFollette Is sued a statement declaring that "the time has wmo for the or ganlzation of a well defined group in support of accepted progressive principles and policies, and the de feat of the administration ship sub sidy bill, proposed anti-strke leg islation and projected transfer ol federal forests to the interior do partmert. ' Senator Capper, republican, of Kansas, chairman of the senate farm bloc, almost at the same time, issued a statement declaring against the ship subsidy , bill and including far mcredlts, prohibition including farm credits, prohbition of tax free securities and reduction of freight rates and government taxes, 'lioth Senators Laiollette and '"upper said tho recent elec tions were a victory for the pro gressives over the reactionaries, but it was not apparent to Svhat extent tho plans of the farm bloc might coincide with those of tho LaFol-lette-IIuddleston group. Tho call issued by Senator La Follette and Representative Hud dleston, with the latter a strong Is bor champion in the house, an nounced that it was for the or ganization of an active working group In congress. The general conference on December 2, it wan said, further, would include "lead ing progressives and not already actively affiliated with the peo ple's legislative service" an or ganization formed two years ago at a dinner of senators, represent atives and others. Exposed Gigantic Evils. "It was decided at that time that it was premature to attempt to organize the handful of pro gressives in the two houses ol congress," said the call, "but with out organization these members ol congress who are devoted to tho people's interests have struggled manfully against overwhelming odds and havo won many impor tant victories. They have blocked many vicious bills and have saved the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars and exposed some gi gantic evils. But above all they have let the people know what was happening in Washington. "Tho peopie have responded They have elected a very consider able number of senators and rep resentatives with splendid records of fidelity to public ervice. Vhey have done all that could bo dono at this election to express their will that this government shall be , genuinely progressive. "It Is apparent, therefore, that the tlmo is opportune for a con ference to discuss r definite plan for the co-operation of all the pro gressives in congress.

HIGH OFFICIALS f THE CALIPHATE, KEMAL1ST SAKS Sultan of Turkey Has Ceased to Retain Any Au thority Over the Moslems; Left by Back Door. Constantinople, Nov. IS (by the Associated Press). The Turkish nationalists consider that Sultan Mohammed VI by his flight has surrendered the caliphate, accord ing to Kafct Pasha, Keinallst gov ernor of Constantinople. According to the Moslem law, he told tho Associated Press, when the sultnn leaves Turkish soil and enters Christian territory he places himself under Christian protection and thereby loses the caliphate, ceasing to retain any authority over the Moslems. Mohammed's departure on the British dreaduaught Malaya in the face of threatened trial for treason by tho Angora government, was compared by Kafet Pasha to the flight of Damad Feri.1 Pasha, for mer rrrand vizier and the other "members of the opposition who, by their nets, were compromised in the eyes of tiie whole Turkish nation." "Great Britain's connivance in the escape," ho added, "is flag rant interference in Turkey's in ternal affairs." Kafet was much agitated. He spent several hours following the escape in franticnlly telephoning LAngora for instructions and taking precaution against ttie uignt or the members of the sultan's cabinet and other high personages wanted by the nationalists. The sultan left his palace by the back door, known as the Malta gate, which heretofore always has been sealed. Tho British for some time had been aware of his an xiety and fear for his personal safety and were prepared to re move him when he said the word. They explained, however, that the request for safe conduct must come from him as they could not be placed in the false position of hav ing kidnaped htm. They also pointed out that he must go a ressonanlo distance from the palace, as it was inexpedient to introduce British guards into the grounds because of the danger of conflict with the Kemalis't sol diery there. The sultan agreed to allow these conditions. Only three persons in the palace knew of the intended flight, name ly, the court chamberlain, the sul tan's personal physician and his bandmaster. These were the only palace officials he trusted, and he even -kept liis Wives in the dark as to his plans. The flight was so carefully ar ranged that the nationalist officers and soldiers stationed In the pal ace grounds did not learn of it until shortly before the selamlik or prayer ceremony at noon in which the sultan was to have par ticipated.' All pedestrian and vehicular traffic in tho neighborhood of the palace was then stopped and the palace was surrounded by national ist military and Gendarmerie. Within the palace consternation reigned among the sullan s wives ar.d Eunuchs. Albunueraue Plannina to , ma Give Members New mm- irtft Toaohorc AcCfir.iatinn IUU ivvmvi Every Courtesy Here.

GLAD HAND All AUTO TO ROOMS FOR EDUCATORS ROADS h OF HILL SEFEI Plan Is to Divorce tiie G, N. From -the N, P, and the C, B, & 0' and. Combine It With the C, M, & St, Y, HOLDEN AND ELLIOTT TESTIFY AT HEARING I Instead of Any Divorce of the Three Groups, They Should Be Unified, One Witness Declares, Washington, Nov. IS. Higher officials if the Hill group of rail roads in the northwest continued to present adverse arguments to day before the Interstate Com merce Commission on the govern ment's tentative railroad consolida tion nl.'in m tin. northwest. The plan would divorce the Great; Northern from association with tho Northern Pacific and the Chi-i cngo Burlington Wuincy. andj combine with the Chicago, Milwau kc Sr. St. Paul hale Hidden, president of the Burlington, suggested that the! commission might consider more; advantageously creation of four far-flung railroad mergers through the west, each of which would tap tho Mississippi basin the Gulf jf Mexico and the Pucific coast. How ard Elliott, chairman of the board of the Northern Pacific, declared that instead of considering any divorce of the three grouped roads, the commission ought to unify them even more completely into a singlo great transportation ma chine, while Ralph Build president of the Great Northern, said that if a divorce within the Hill group was forced, the logic and practicality of things called for a union of t'ie Northern Pacific with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul. Prof. William '.. Itlpley, who laid down the tentative outlines ot the general consolidation plan, in interchanges with Mr. Holden, sug gested that the exact complete linking up of railroad service he had In mind would result in great decrease of railroad operating business in "secondary gateway cities." "Perhaps so." Mr. Ilolden re turned, "but my point is that in the consolidation plans tiu commission has gone either too far or not fur enough." Mr. Budd's argument against, the splitting off of the Great Northern was that the St. Paul nd Northern Pacific systems were far more sup plementary to each other than the Great Northern and St. Paul could be. "A Great Northern combination with the St. Paul would weaken both lines and result in no im provement of economio and effi cient working." hp said. "It would. Indeed, increase tendencies wlii h have given ns severe ear shortages in the west. "However, in no place in the United Stales has the tentative consolidation plan of the commis sion been based on so great disrup tion or estaoiisiied rni'road asso ciations as that proposed In the ! northwest in the separation of the Great Northern from Iho P.urling ! ton and Northern Pacific. VAue. where (lie commission has sought to build existing systems, not to force tliem apart."
