"Although our club is not a large
one, we have representatives here to
night from all parts of tho world,"
stated Mr. Reams. "Russia. France.
*spaln, Babylonia, Cuba. Mexico, and
almost every South American coun
try U represented here tonight. We

receive bullets from behind. He can
face the bullets of the enemy, but
he must not receive any from his
own country."
M. Briand called on President Mil
lerand immediately after leaving the
•hamber. He remained with the pres
ident for only a few minutes, then
he informed the press representa
"My resignation is absolutely final.
I could1 not continue to govern under
such conditions. Of course. I shad
not return to Cannes, but 1 hope my
resignation will not cause conclusion
of the Genoa conference."
Entire Cabinet
With M. Briand went his entire
cabinet and. after conferring with
the presidents of the Senate aqd
(’hamber, M. Millerand called upon
M. Poincare to form a new ministry.
M. Poincare tentatively agreed to
this, but asked for a few hours in
which to consult his friends. He
promised to give a final answer to
morrow.
M. Peret. president of the cham
ber, before proceeding to Elysee pal
ace, said to the Associated Press cor -
respondent and others: “Prance is
facing a situation whloh is as gloomy
as the darkest days of the war. When
the Germans were at Chateau
Thierry M. Jolncare (then President
of the republic) overlooking former
personal differences between himself
and M. I'lemenceaii, called In the man
whom the country demanded. To
day. If. as Is freely said, there are
differences of opinion between the
President of the republic and M.
Poincare, our President is a big
enough man to forget them."
Vlvlnnl’* Statement
Rene Vlviani, former premier, who
was one of the French delegation at
the Washington conference, said,
“under present circumstances the life
of a statesman in France is impos
sible. I fully approve M. Brland’s
attitude, but we shall do our best to
help his successor in the work of
restoring France. The country will
not find us in the way with petty
personal quarrels/'
As is the custom, M. Millemnd has
asked the members of the cabinet to

When the Associated Press cor
respondent called at M. Briand’s
modest apartment at six o’clock this
evening he was told by the maid:
“The president (Premier) sleeps; he
is very tired."
Later in the evening, after resting.
M. Briand met the newspapermen and
told them that he was definitely out
of power. Under present conditions
he declined “to row in the republic's
galleys.”
"Any way,” he added, "It would be
indecent to remain longer than a year
| in power. It Is Just a year since

only w'ith a solid majority; It is not

NINE G. 0. P.’S VOTE
WITH DEMOCRATS
AGAINST NEWBERRY
(Continued from Page One)
he voted out or in on a clean cut
issue.
Text of Resolution
The text of the resolution by which
Mr. Newberry’s title to his seat was
cleared and which dismissed the
charges made and the contes* filed
against him by Henry Ford follows:
“(1) That the contest of Henry
Ford against Truman II. Newberry be,
and it is hereby, dismissed.
“(2) That Truman H. Newberry is
hereby declared to be & duly elected
senator from the state of Michigan
for the term of six years, commenc
ing on the fourth day of March, 1919,
j and is entitled to hold his seat in
the Senate of the United States.
“(3) That whether the amount ex
| pended In this (Michigan) primary
I was $195,000 as was fully reported or
openly acknowledged or whether
! there were some few thousands In
! excess the amount expended was In
j either case too large, much larger
than ought to have been expended.
The expenditure of such excessive
sums In behalf of a candidate either
with or without his knowledge and
consent being contrary to sound pub
lic policy, harmful to the honor and
dignity of the Senate and dangerous
to the perpetuity of a free govern
ment, such excessive expenditures are
hereby severely condemned and dis
approved.”
The end of the Newberry contro
versy came at 6:28 p. m. and the sen
ators, exhausted from the strain of
the battle which had been waged un
ceasingly on the floor and under the
surface for days, quit work until
Monday.
The final vote was taken after a
•lay of combat unlike any in recent
months and after the democrats and
the nine republicans had made stren
uous but futile efforts to upset the
program of the Newberry supporters.
Three resolutions, differing in phrase
ology but each declaring the seat
vacant were voted down by exactly
the same line-up which established
Mr. Newberry’s title to his seal. The
ouster resolutions were those or Sen
ators Walsh of Montana and Owen of
Oklahoma, democrats, and Norris of
Nebraska, republican.

| FORD MEET WEEKS
FOR A CONFERENCE
ON SHOALS TODAY
(Continued from Page One)
Josses through Its continued produc
tion.
It was suggested as probable that
Mr. Ford would ask for time in which
to study the questions before at
tempting to answer them and that
this would necessitate a further delay
in concluding the negotiations. Two
w'eeks, however, was said to be a
reasonable allowance of time for this
purpose and. under ordinary circum
stances, would not result in a post
ponement of final action beyond that
period.
OPINION DIVIDED ON
THE FORD PROPOSAL
Washington, January 12.—(Spe
cial.)—In a revised offer for Muscle
Shoals to be submitted to the Secre
tary of War Friday afternoon at ?
o’clock, Will Henry Ford, Detroit
manufacturer, meet the requirements
of the government? Opion is sharply
divided.
This bureau is now able to present
the objections to the original offer
filed with Ford by,the Secretary of
War, and which, in Ills revised offer,
Ford is expected by the secretary to
meet. In abbreviated form they fol
low :
(1) For $87,000,000 worth of prop
erty $5,000,000 is Inadequate.
<2i Unwillingness to condemn 20.
000 acres of land, including dam site,
for the construction of dam No. 3.
Unwillingness to construct dam No.
when Wilson dam would generate
twice the necessary current for op
eration of nitrate plants.
(3) Cost of complying with stipula
tions of Ford offer would be $60,000,
000, or $82,000,000 in excess of the
sum Ford agrees to pay 6 per cent
interest on.
<4) Unwillingness to exempt Fora
from waterpower statutes which lim
it leases to 50 years and protect con
sumers from excess charges.
»5) Existence of contracts involv
ing options possessed by certain in
terests to purchase an auxiliary
steam plant and nitrate plant No. 2
subject to exercise should the gov
ernment determine to lose title to
sain e.
>6) No known process is yet avail
able by which Muscle Shoals equip
ment can produce fertilizer in quan
tity at a price warranting commer
cial competition.
(7) Unwillingness to accept inade
quate terms which would necessitate
abrogation of leases on two auxil
iary steam plants which produce rev
enue approximating $500,000 per an
num, a sum adequate to maintain
Muscle Shoals properties in standby
condition.
FORD TO MEET FARMERS
AT M1I8CLB SHOALS
Knoxville, Tenn., January 12.—A

ing further as to the import 1st the

THREE INDICTED FOR
MURDER OF DEPUTY
Mobile, January 12.—Three men
were Indicted here this afternoon by
the grand jury Investigating the
shooting of Deputy Sheriff A. C. Brill
near Calvert a week ago.
Those indicted were Dossy Rivers,

STREET CAR KNOCKED
FROM TRACK BY AUTO
Selma, January 12.— (Special.)—A
collision between a street car and an
automobile at the intersection of
Washington and Selma streets at
o’clock this morning resulted in the
street car being knocked completely
off the track and rolling down the
paved street for HO or 40 feet. The
automobile was driven by Jullen
j Smith of Selma. Mr. Smith was ap
j proaching the crossing at very slow
speed and had his curtains in place,
i on account of the extreme cold, which
j obstructed his view of the approach
ing car. Mr. Smith and all five pas
sengers on the car at the time es
caped uninjured. The quickness of
Motorman John Arnold in applying
the brakes is believed to be all that
kept his car from making an un
ceremonious entrance through the
front door of the Selma Steam laun
dry, directly opposite. Considerable
damage was done Mr. Smith’s car, and
the front step was demolished on the
street car.
