Brydon, WASHINGTON DAY BY DAY (From Our Special Correspondent.) Washington, March 30.?Politics by radio. That's the latest. Tonight Senator Harry S. New, of Indiana, and former Senator Albert J. Bever idge, opponents for the Republican senatorial nomination in Indiana, will conduct a joint debate, Beveridge being in Indianapolis and New in Washington. Beveridge will address a meeting of women in Tomlinson Hall, Indianapolis, and New Will ad dress the same meeting via radio from the navy plant at Arlington. The meeting had originally been arranged by friends of Beveridge, but they finally decided to invite New. The senator could not attend, because he was needed in Washington to vote on the treaties, so the arrangements j for the rdio debate were concluded. News speech will be started at Ar lington at 10 o'clock. Not only Indi ana, but the whole nation may thus listen to an old-fashioned Indiana po litical debate. The inside story of the fight that is being made against David H. Blair, commissioner of internal revenue in the Treasury Department, reads al most like fiction. On the one side are Blair and his two superior officers, Secretary of the Treasury Mellon and Under-Secretary Gilbert. On the other is a strange assortment, lined j up together for purposes of expedi ency, composed of Elmer Dover, as sistant secretary of the Treasury, members of the Republican National Committee, R. A. Havnes, Federal prohibition commissioner, and promi nent members of the Senate and House, besides members of the Anti Saloon League. There are several angles to the fighf. One is the attempt being mad&by various forces working through Elmer Dover to "Hardingize" the Treasury Department and put Re- j publicans in all responsible positions I in the places of men who were loyal I to the Wilson administration. Another | angle is the attempt of the Anti-Sa-| loon League and Haynes to get the I scalp of Blair because of his refusal ! to be dictated to by the League, and ( because he constantly, with the con sent of Secretary Mellon, overrules J decisions of Commissioner Haynes, originated by the League. Then there ; is the attempt of lawyers and claim I agents, representing many millions of dollars of tax cases before the Inter nal Revenue Bureau, to oust officials who have made decisions adverse to their clients. Alanson B. Houghton, former repre sentative in Congress from New York State, and recently appointed United States ambassador to Germany, will sail for his post iifcBerlin on Saturday. He will be accompanied by Henry P. Fletcher, former under-secretary of state, who goes as the American am bassador to Belgium. Ambassador. Houghton realizes that he has quite x: task before him as America's representative in Berlin, in view of the present unsettled state of affairs in Germany growing out of the results of the world war. He will, no doubt, play an important part in bringing about a settlement of the claims of American citizens for loss of life and properly due to German submarine warfare, .of which there are approximately $500,000,000 al ready on file at the State Depart ment. Ratification of the naval treaty re sulting from the Arms Conference will not end the imnehding fight in Congress over h reduWon in the naval forces of the United States. Mem bers of the House seem determined to cut the American navv down to a olace where the United States would have a ?. navy, as against a 5 navy for Great Britain and a 3 navv for Japan. Majority Leader Lodge warned the Senate to take heed of the situation caused by the contemplated eel ion of the House and insisted that the wav to accomplish ultimate dis armament was by concerted action of the nations and not. by the individual acts of one nation in cnttinir its navy. It is regarded as probable that a ma iority of the Senate will concur with Lodge in his fight to retain the standing given the American navy by the Arms Conference, and there is no doubt but that he will be strongly hacked up by the Preident and Navy Department.

Com monwealth Attorney Farr, who talked with the governor by long distance yesterday, made that announcement last night. County officials are expect ed to fix the reward tomorrow. Richard, alias "Reds" Jackson, ne gro suspect who was arrested on .Aqueduct Bridge this morning, is be ing held by Washington police for Virginia authorities. Extradition pa pers to remove the man to Fairfax County will be filed at once. Jackson has not been charged with the crime. He will be extradited on a charge of breaking into.the home of R. A. San ders. of Fairfax County. Virginia authorities have been try ing to locate Jackson since the day of the crime. Negroes who live in the vicinity of the Hawkins farm claim to have seen Jackson in that, vicinity the ' afternoon of the attack He was em ployed on a neighboring farm until two days before the asasult. When I paid off Jackson said he was going to ; Baltimore. A shovel, said to have been identi- I fied as belonging to Jackson's former employer, has been found in a feed bin ot the barn in which the attack j was made. Jackson is said to have been seen with a shelve 1 on the day of j the assault. Commonwealth Attorney Wilson j Farr stated tonight that three differ ent parties have reported ^eing :n unidentified negro near Tlvt^lnwkinn farm last Thursday. Magistrate Laughlin, of Fairfax County, questioned Jackson today, but was not able to clear up his move ments Thursday nijrht. Jackson claims to have gone to Rosslvn to look for r. iob that afternoon. He returned to Washington that night, he says, and slept in a wagon in "Foggy Bottom." He could not tell where the wagon was. When taken into custody, Jackson told Policeman R. L. Hannan. who made the arrest, that he was going to Chain Bridge to get a job.

'"The people of Fairfax County have too much confidence in the au thorities to attempt this kind of ac tion." Commonwealth Attorney Farr dec-la red tonight. "Persistent tn'k oT lvnehing is a blot on tho county and a hindrance to authorities in talking with colored [res-den's. Up to the present we have had snli'ndid ro-ofv-ration from the [ colored population in on'- search for the guiltv man. Talk of lynchinr is discouraging to authorities as well a direct affront to the colored nr>opl? "?ho have helped us in the search.

Car Containing Men Re cruited For Shops Is Target ROCKS ARE HURLED Big Four Officials Threaten to Take Active Pari In The Railroad Walk out.

Judge Frank G. Wagaman,' of the Washington County Circuit the superintendent of the Hagers town division of the railroad and the representative of the Federated Shop Craft directing the strike, went into conference to see what could be done to relieve the situation. An excited unruly crowd surrounds the train. Upon arrival of the train. 35 min utes late, from Baltimore it was im mediately surrounded by strikers! when it stopped ai one of the Hag- ; erstown street crossings. The crowd began hammering on the door of the! b??gage oar when it was found the stiikebreakers were locked in there. Rocks were thrown and a window of the car broken. The crowd swell ed to large proportions and the af-1 fair rapidly assumed aspects <;f a riot. In the confusion one of the strikers slipped behind the locomotive and uncoupled it. When the engine started again to pull into the station the air hose broke and the crowd pushed in so tightly that it prevent ed efforts to recouple the train. Hagerstown police, it is said, made little effort to disperse the crowd. Superintendent A. M. Smith, of the Hagerstown division, kept all rail road detectives out of the riot on the grounds that the crowd was assem bled on the street and not on rail road property. He sent' for Sheriff Scott Kline, of Washington county. To Sheriff Kline, Thomas Car roll, who is directing the strike for the Federated Shop Crafts, pro posed that if the baggage car was unlocked and the men in it told why they had been brought to Hagers town. the strikers would then allow the train to proceed and the strike breakers to go to work or not, as they liked.

The Chinese policy treaty wa then made the unfinished business, with the treaty relating to Chine'.e i tariffs the next and last to be cn'i ! sidered. \ Senator Borah, in supporting thi naval disarmament pact, said he re garded it "as 'he beginning, and only the beginning, of the, -vork of disarmament.'' Referring to the authorship of the movement which had come into the discussion. Senator Borah said the real author was public opinion, and without the sustained power of pub lic opinion the treaty would accom plish little in the way of bringing the world toward disarmament. The creation of an "American bat of cotton" and the "operation of j cotton exchanges" wMl be investiga ted by the Federal Trade Commis sion under a resolution by Senator Dial, of South Carolina, adopted h\ the Senate. The creatino of an "American bat tle monument commission" 1?< erect .suitable memorials in France i? commemoration of the services of the American expeditionary forces is provided for in a bill introducer! by Senator Lodge.

THREE SPEAKERS AT LABOR MEET Western Starr Airs Views on 'The Power of Monopoly" .Mrs. Ellen 1). Megow and II. I.. Brun son Also Tell What They Think of l'resent Day Conditions Western Starr spoke on "The Power of Monopoly." before a pub lic meeting of labor under the aus pices of the International Associa tion of Machinists. Alexandria Lodge No. 1100, held last night in the Young People's Building. Mo nopoly he said is created by law. The high cost of living he dec 11 red puzzled There are he said only two ways to create wealth, one being by law and the other by monoplv. I and he added there are two items [ subject to monopoly, one being 'he surface- of the earth and the other credit. The monopoly of credit he asserted is the chief monopoly. Thv first step to destroy the root of mo ! nopoly he'said is to have the gov ernment go into I he banking busi ' ness itself. All evil he declared (flows from the perversion of the j powers of the government and until ! the people grapple with its influ ; ence he said it would continue. Mrs. Ellen I). Megow. of Chicago, took for his subject, '"ills Majesty, the American Citizen." The peo 1 pk* she asserted had suffered long enough and ought to clean up and she urged getting together. I II. L.

T?NATE I Limit Size of Navies and Curb Use of Subs and Gas VOTE ALMOST SOLID j Senator France of Maryland Casts Only Dissenting Vote Against Ten ! Year Naval Holiday. Washington. March 30.?While Sen ator Joseph I. 1' ranee, ot Maryland, stood isolated in his opposition, the Senate yesterday ratified the naval limitation of armament treaty by a vote of 74 to 1. With only brief de | bate the Senate then ratified, 7i to 0. I the treaty limiting the use of subma [ l ines and proh;')iting the use of poison | gas in warfare I The Maryland senator voted for the | poison gas treaty alter lie had spoken and voted against the treaty for a ! 10-year naval holiday. | Having engineered tvo treaty votes j in one day, Senator Lodge immedi ately put before the Senate the Nine 1'ovver treaty relating to China. Rati fication o fthis treaty, as wel las that ficaiion of this treaty, as well as that pected by end of the w?*?k, and this will wipe clean tin* ratification slate and leave the- Senate opportunity to go hack to domestic questions. The Nine-Power treaty was read late to day, but debate did not begin upon it. Suporting the naval pact. Senator Borah, whose resolution was largely instrumental in bringing about the Washington Conference, told the Sen ate that the treaty represented a step toward disarmament. The Idaho senator said he welcomed the oppor tunity to vote for the treaty, but added: "I have no doubt that this treaty represents all that could be obtained from the Washington Conference. But I should regard it as a disaster rather than a benefit if this treaty should be looked upon as all there is to do in th? way of disarmament, even naval disarmament, in the next iO years. Jt is important we utilize this occasion I for considering what there is to do." Senator Borah referred to the speech of Senator Underwood, holding that the treaty marks the beginning of a new era of civilization. "It may well do so," added Senator B< *h; "yet it accomplishes little compared with what remains to be dvjf.v We can not praise the treaty too much as a beginning. There has been much discussion about this ques rion. and public opinion is the real < ;iuse of the Washington Conference." Senator Borah directed attention to the fact that even with the treaty in operation navies can be greaer than ever before, because such instruments of modern warfare as the submarine and destroyer are left untouched. Japan, he suggested, has "enough navy left to dominate the Bastern i Pacific." While the treaty will bring about some reduction in the naval budgets of the various signatory nations, the Idaho senator said, the saving would be small compared with what might be accomplished,and would show "how much further we still have to go.' Senator Johnson told the Senate that he had been informed by naval experts that the portions of the treaty relating to the xfahix ?//?? of the for tifications of the islands of the Pacific would not hurt the United States. Since he was not a naval expert, Sen ator Johnson said, he would have to I accept these assurances, although with misgivings. There were no reservations otfered to the naval treaty, and the final vote began at 3 o'clock. There was no par ticular stir when Senator France cast the only negative vote, and the Mary lander voted in a quiet, even tone. He immediately thereafter began to go over the paper's on his desk as Senator | Lodge presented the poison-gas pact, upon which there developed little de bate. Mrs. J.
