C, May 16. There .were intimations today that administration officials ex pected .early developments in Ge noa or perhaps later at The Hague which might clarifly the Russian situation sufficiently to permit American participation in some in ternational project designed to re store Russia to productivity. On what information that feel ing might be based was not indi cated. It was evident, however, that the exchange of cabled notes with the Genoa conference groups yesterday was regarded as having moved matters at least a step for ward' so far as Russia con cerned. ' ' INVITERS HOLD MEETING GENOA, May 16. Further ap peals probably will be made to the United States by the allied powers in an endeavor to induce that coun try to take part in the meeting of the commission of experts at The Hague 'on June 15. The inviting powers, England, Japan, France, Italy and Belgium, held a meeting this afternoon to consider the mat ter further. The French delegates are anxious to have the closing plenary session of the oconomic conference on Thurs day "but this is considered impossible as there is no disposition to hurry the Russians in making their final reply regarding The Hague confer ence and it seems likely that the closing session will not be held be fore Saturday or Monday. Tomor row morning the Russians will reas semble with the sub-commission on political affairs to discuss plans for The Hague. SOU!) EWE BUST be r (Associated Press Nlit Wire) WASHINGTON, D. C, May 16.

Open de fiance of efforts of police to check an outbreak of labor warfare which has terrorized the city for the past two months wa seen tonight in a spectacular fire which partly destroy ed a seven- story apartment building under construction at 771 Sheridan Road, in the heart of a weafthy resi dence section.

The entire Rogers Park police" force was used to keep back the crowds, estimated at more than 5,000 persons.

FORBES ONCE IDE DECLARES FDD ESCOn AS CHIEF "WELL" GITY (From Wednesday's Daily) Giving Senator Henry F. Ashurstfspccifically the necessity of a hos- credit for his work in behalf of the ex-soldier, disabled in the war, Direc tor Charles R. Forbes of the vet erans' bureau in a second communi cation to the senior Arizona senator again points out the error of the as sumption that hospital construction is a part of the federal pic for. dis tribution. The senator in several addresses has called attention to men at southern Arizona towns who "re fuse" to come t6 Prescott for treat ment. Mr. Forbes conclusively shows that it is to their interest to 'go to Prescott where not only have ade quate bed facilities been supplied.l but the climate but read Mr. Forbes letter. A copy was kindly supplied the Journal-Miner by Senator Ash urst. Your activities in behalf of dis abled ex-service men of the veterans' bureau, now seeking a cure for pul monary tuberculosis in Arizona, have been most assiduous and disinterest ed. We have had several interviews and some correspondence on the sub ject and I am sure I need not re iterate what I have previously ex pressed to you both in person and by letter, that my greatest desire is to provide adequate and proper care under the best possible conditions, for the disabled veterans. "To "this end on the secom! of this month there was a conference called by me, between medical representa tives of this bureau and six tubercu losis experts, all of them members of the National Tuberculosis associa tion and all of them of national repu tation. The purpose of this confer ence was to seek the best possible advice in determining the policy of the bureau toward its beneficiaries who are afflicted with pulmonary tuberculosis.

Compromis ing the tax claim of the internal revenue bureau against the Consoli dated Arizona Smelting company, representatives of the government and the company today appeared be fore Federal Judge William C. Van Fleet, sitting for Judge 'Sawtelle, and obtained an order confirming the sale of the property by Special Master Joe Dillon to the Southwest Metals company on its bid of $1,- 000,000. G. M. Colvocoresses, general man ager, leaves tomorrow for Humboldt where he will announce at once the company's policy with respect to re suming smelting and mining. The result of the compromise is, it was announced, that the govern ment claim was paid in full, the pur chaser (Southwest Metals company) advancing the money required. ALFONSO OBREGON DIES ; (Associated Press Night "Wire) NOGALES, May 16. Alfonso Ob- rcgon, a brother of President Alvaro Obregon of Mexico, died today m his - home in Huatabampo, state of Sonora, Mexico, following a long illness, according to word received in Nogales. pital at Tucson and also at Phoenix. No one could have presented better the claims of those cities than you did and I am sure that if there had been the slightest doubt concerning the need of further hospital construc tion in Arizona other than that now completed and in contemplation, the plans for which are already matured, the conclusion of the board would have been otherwise. "However, the board unanimously adopted the following resolution: "That inasmuch as Cie govern ment hospital at Prescott, Arizona, ha9 a present capacity of 600 beds and that 450 additional beds are provided for, this hospital construc tion will amply take care of all the present and future beneficiaries of the veterans' bureau .in that state; therefore, that no further hospital construction in Arizona is recom mended. "In your address to those present at this conference you mentioned the fact that there arc at present in Tuc son and Phoenix disabled veterans who refuse to go to Prescott for trertmcnt because they prefer to re main in the southern part of the state. Surely the salubriousness of the climate at Prescott can not be denied, so that a refusal on the part of the ex-service men to go there must be based on other reasons than the fundamental and all-important one of a desire to be cured. "This situation no doubt exists to a certain extent in many states. In fact, citizens of some of the states are hospitalized elsewhere because of lack of hospital facilities in the state of their home residence. This is a matter of necessity arising largely from economic reasons. I think you will agree with me then that it would be unwise and uneconomical to at tempt to establish an expensive gov ernment hospital wherever a com paratively small group of beneficiar ies desire hospitalization.

I think there is more independence in politics now than ever before. The republican leaders are reactionary while the re publican masses are progressive. Revenue is Issue "Our greatest issue this fall will be the revenue bill. There is a divis ion of the republican party on this subject. The excess profits tax should not be repealed." Mr. Bryan censured the republican party for not passing the soldier bonus compensation legislation and declared "the republicans can find a way to take off the tax for profiteers wha become wealthy during the war but cannot find a way to pass a bill for the benefit of the soldier boys. There were more millionaires created during the war than all the time since Columbus touched American soil." The great difference between the two parties, said Mr. Bryan, is that the republican leaders think that so ciety is built from the top and the democratic leaders think it is built from the bottom and the democrats legislate for the masses. Mr. Bryan declared that the farmer and the laboring man today are in the worst shape they have been in 30 years and that the republicans have failed to live up to their possi bilities. He said he believes that the United States is failing to do its duty by not participating in the Genoa economic conference. Mr. Bryan said he was pleased to learn that the state conference had; endorsed Senator Ashurst and Con- gressman Hayden for re-election.
