LABOR THINKS WILSON WILL VETO RAIL BILL Measure Passed Yesterday Ex pected to Receive Presi dent’s Attention Today. SENATE FOR IT 3 TO 1 WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—Railroad union men today are confident the president will veto the Esch-Cummlns railroad bill. The measure, passed bp the senate late yesterday and by the house Saturday, was expected to be sent to the white house today. The president has drafted a reply to <ue request of the representatives of the railroad workers that he appolrt at once a tribunal of employer ? and em ployes to adjust railroad wage demands, end it will be transmitted to the rail road conference now In session. It Is understood the president will state that he can not appoint 6uch a commission until he has acted upon the Cummtns- Eseh bill, which provides for a labor adjustment board. DEPEND ON PROMISE OF “SQUARE DEAL." The railroad men's confidence of a presiedntlal veto is based on what they interpret as promises of a “square deal” made by the president last summer when he asked them to postpone pressing their wage demands pending result of the gov ernment's efforts to bring down prices. What action Mr. Wilson takes on the railroad bill probably will be influenced by the advice of Rail Director Hines, whose attitude toward it is more or less o? a mystery. Both opponents and friends of the measure claim his sup port. In Louisville recently Hines spoke in defense of government control. The Plumb plan league had this speech printed and mailed to thousands of per sons, ajs they regarded it an argument for cotninuation of federal control. Then at a recent meeting attended by congress men and union men Hines was accused of being the author of the labor section? ofthe measure. Hines denied this In a letter which was put into the congres sional record. PRIVATE CONTROL TO BE RESUMED MARCH 1. On the other hand, notification was sent-to all railroads through Hines yes terday that the roads would go back to private control March 1 and friends of the bill took this' to mean that the president would sign the bill. Hines sent this notice two hours before the 6enate voted on the conference report. What would follow a veto is uncertain. It Is generally believed that not enough votes could be mustered In the house to pass the bill over the. veto. But the senate apparently would override It. The vote vgaterday was 47 to 17. One of the principal objections the president probably will take into consideration in ieclding whether to veto the bill is its juarantee to the roads of f>Vj per cent let operating income. Some congress nen consider this provision unconsti tutional. Petitions have been received rora farmers objecting to it. Several hundred railroad union officials vere here today to direct wage negotia 4ons with President Wilson. Each of :he fourteen big rail union* is represent td by local officials from all parts of the ;ountry. Conferences will continue all day, offi cials expected. The conferences were sec donal. Officials of each union met in exec utive session to pass on the negotiations vith the president and devise new plans. 4 general conference of ail the unions was to be called as soon as the sectional 'neetiDgs were finished. Chief executives >f the unions expected this general con ference would be today. ?ASSED BY 3 TO 1 VOTE OF SENATE. By a vote of nearly 3 to 1 the senate last night passed the measure. Thirty-two republicans joined with fifteen democrats In voting for adoption of the conference report, while three re publicans apd fourteen democrats com prised the seventeen voting against It. There was never any doubt ns to what the senate would do. in view if the Wide margin by which flic Cummins Mil. more drastic than the compromise measure, was passed. During the five hours of debate, led by Chairman Cummins of the Interstate commerce committee, senators expressed varying opinions as to how the public and the railroads would fare under the bill, which was warmly defended and attacked. But the intense interest, which characterized proceedings Satur day in the house, was lacking, frequent quorum calis being necessary to get members In the chamber. Around 0 o'clock (he patience of the senate ap parently was exhausted after the long season of speech making and fnsistent demands for a vote cut short the desire to prolong the presentation of individual views. lABOR AND RATE MAKING CHIEF DISCUSSION. Discussion yesterday related largely to the labor and rate making provisions. Senator Cummins, with great feeling, de nounced widespread claims that in fix ing freight and passenger charges cal culated to give the roads a return of •''4 per cent meant taking huge sums of money from the public treasury. The bill, he declared, would not take one dollar In that way. Such reports, he said, were merely a part of the propa ganda put forth in an effort to defeat all legislation on the eve of return of the roads to their owners on March 1. Announcement was made that if Sen ator Hitchcock, Nebraska: Stanley. Ken tucky, and Chamberlain, Oregon, all dem- had been present they would have v< Ned in support of the conference report. Senator Myers, democrat, Montana, attacked organized labor for its attitude toward the railroad bill and other meas ure*. Organized labor is thoArreatest men ace before the country today," he said. “Labor had gono Into politics and if you get through one out of ihree bills op po*.d by Gompers I should think the country Is doing well.” HOW SENATORS VOTED ON MEASURE.

RISK IN RACE FOR GOVERNOR (Continued From Page One.) exchange the confidence, appreciation, ad miration and respect of the thousands upon thousands of good men and women of Indiana. “You and I know, personally, the real opposition to the Jones primary bill, the direct primnry was a democratic plat form measure and had the endorsement of eleven democratic congressmen, two United States senators, the president of the United States and the secretary of state, and yet, the democratic machine organization was willing to repudiate th?ir own platform and to disregard the advice of eleven congressmen, two Unit ed States senators, the president of the United States aaid the secretary of stnte. Is ity any wonder that the" democracy of Indiana felt outraged at the action of the machine? OPPOSITION TO VICIOUS LEGISLATION. “The citizenship of Indiana are in debted to you, Mr. Jones, and to the twelve or fifteen members of the 1916 legislature that stood with you, not only for the direct primary law. but In op posing much vicious legislation. “I desire to digress from my sub ject, in order to say that the greatest and most effective influence behind the primary tight was The Indiana Daily Times. To The Times, the citizens of Indiana owe much for the passage of the primary law, and the advancement 6f the great moral questions that are sweeping the nation. lam glad that The Indiana Daily Times is on the democratic side. Every real democrat in Indiana should appreciate the service that The Indiana Daily Times is rendering to the party. “You say there is a real demand in In diana for me to become a candidate for governor. I believe there is a real demand within the rank and file of the demo critic party to espouse democratic piln ciples. "I briicve the great majority of the men and women of Indiana will Insist on candidates, in both political parties, de claring openly for principles that mean the perpetuation of the liberties pre scribed by our federal constitution. •'Thp man aspiring to the office or governor should not only have strong convictions, but should enter the race with a full determination, if nominated and elected, that he will devote his entire -lervice to the state of Indiana. “Many men capable of making useful public servants hare been div< rted from their well defined course by the crafty politician, who desires to prevent th<- public servant from rendering a service by pointing out the short distance from the Indiana capital to Washington. PUBLIC SERVICE AND BUSINESS. “Another common practice is inducing the public servant, occupying a high position, to become interested In busi ness enterprises, possibly, prevailing upon flic public servant to accept both common and prefernd stock in su<-ii en ter;.rises without cost, therefore, 1 think it the duty of any man, becoming a candidate for governor of Indiana, f<. assure the voters of the state that lie will, without fear or favor, r devote Ills entire service to the office. “Four years ago, I was requested to be come a candidate, before the primary, for governor. .Serious illness prevented my filing petitions and there are many good and sufficient personal reasons why I should not become a candidate, nt this time, but no democratic candidate, at Ui's time has openly declared his pur pose of leading the people's light and. believing that I know the desire of the Indiana voters and believing that they went a man who is willing to present a program.; a man with convictions, who is willing to defend them and who is more interested in the principles of gov ernment than be is in his own persona! success, I will enter the race as a demo cratic candidate, in the coming primary, and in a few days will present to the voters f the state a platform on which I desire to'stand. ‘‘l appreciate the fact that John B. Jones, author of the direct primary law. and a man who devoted his energy as ft member of the Indiana legislature, in the interest of the common people, has volunteered his services to manage my campaign. "Thanking you for your long and con tinued support and inviting all voter* in the state who stand fur real dem ocratic principles, to enlisc tinder our banner, I am “Very truly yours. “JAMES K, RISK.” LETTER URGES SERVICE TO PUBLIC. Tile letter from Mr. .Tones, to which the foregoing is a reply, readsr a* fol lows : My Dear Kirby—As you know, T have insisted for the last two years that you should become a candidate for governor in the 1920 primaries. “My opinion 1* based on your qualifica tions and your broad acquaintance of Irfdiana men and women, and on the existing sentiment in all parts of the state. My business has compelled me to cover a considerable portion of Indiana in thn Inst two years, and I have found the Risk sentiment growing stronger as (he political discussions of available candidates become more pronounced. "In the very early pnrt of February I addressed a few hundred letters to Indiana democrats, telling them why 1 thought you should be a candidate. With one exception every reply that I received was not only friendly but the writer expressed enthusiastic desire to render assistance In every way possible in behalf of yoor candidacy and I want to assure you that a very large percent of m•• letters were answered. "Kirby I immediately began calling on these democrats personally as the oppor tunity permitted and found a greater interest in your candidacy than I had anticipated. I was requested to hftve pe titions prepared and was assured that (hey would be circulated and signatures would be easily obtained. “I wanted to be absolutely sure that there was a real Risk sentiment and I had petitions prepared and visited a number of Indiana cities personally, placing the petitions in the hands of ‘WHY?’ aJL JL • democrats and was immediately con vinced that they were in earnest. DESIRE OF VOTER FIRST CONSIDERED. “Knowing how closely your business has required your attention for the last three of four years and yeur desire to stay out of politics, so far as desiring to be come a candidate, I did not feel that I had the right, neither did I have the de sire to Insist on your becoming a candi date, without first putting myself In a position of knowing what the desire of the voters was. “Kirby Risk, there Is a real demand in Indiana for your candidacy for governor and, as a democrat with sufficient experi ence in politics to enable me to Judge political conditions, I am willing to say to you that you have better than a fair chance to be nominated. The thousands of democrats that know yon personally are familiar with the service you have rendered the party in the last quarter of a century and will support you In prefer ence to any other candidate. “The democrat, known as a part of the machine, respects you and admits that you are a hard and open fighter. Their outspoken opposition to you is due en tirely to your pronounced views on the temperance and woman's suffrage ques- , tions, but their real opposition, in my opinion, is due to the demoralizing defeat of the machine in the direct primary fight during th 1915 legislature. “The machine realizes that your man agement of the primary fight had much to do in securing the passage of the bill, but while you incurred the in creased enmity of the machine in the fight, you in turn won the confidence, appreciation, admiration and respect of thousands upon thousands of good men and women of Indiana, and they are ready and willing to enlist under your banner. They know you have made the ; fight. They know you have kept the j faith. They want you to become their j candidate for governor. “Knowing you as I do and knowing your desire to render service, honest, j efficient service, and knowing bow badly Indiana needs a real executive in the governor's chair, and. on behalf of the real democracy of tndiana, I ask you to become a candidate. “Yours truly, “JOHN R. JONES.” STOP ANARCHY RUSSIA IS TOLD (Continued From Page One.) lieved.

They realize that if It gains In strength It will! tend to "scrap” the methods they have always used and in so doing may easily “scrar” them. OTHERS SEEKING JOB FOR HIM. A Washington correspondent expressed the situation when he said: “Mr. McAdao is a candidate. He won't seek the joo himself. Others will try strenuously to do it for him.” The “others” to whom this corre spondent referred constitute an organ ! ization that is new to party politics, j They are men of all occupations, of all | parts of the country and frankly of ail | parties w-ho have been impressed not | only with the ability of Mr. McAdoo to I do a big job well, but with the necessity j of offering to the voters this year a man on whom ail classes of people can unite. It is a fact that in many different parts ! of the United States there is a strong Reeling that the democratic party can win with no else than McAdoo. There is also a feeling that there is going to lie a great deflection of the voters from both old-line parties unless McAdoo is the democratic nominee. There is much talk in some sections of breaking away from the old parties. It almost always fades ns soon as McAdoo Is mentioned as a democratic possibility. His nomination will do more to preserve the present party alignments than anything else that, could happen this spring. NOMINATION WILL PREVENT NEW PARTY. McAdoo Is the candidate the representa tives of the masses of voters want to support. If they do not get him they will show no interest in the candidates of either party, and there is a large pos sibility of this apathy being developed into a demand for anew party, if not this fall. In two years from now. It is this great feeling of satisfaction, with McAdoo as a prospective candidate for the presidency, that Is keeping alive activity In his behalf without organize Mon or artificial stimulation such as has been applied In the republican ranks. McAdoo will have the largest Billowing in the Kan Francisco convention, whether or not a single delegate is pledged for him. And It is now very evident that he will win that following without an effort on his part. It will he a whole some demonstration of the high regard of the people of the country for the man who financed the war as secretary of the treasury and saved the allies by his transportation of food and ammunition as director of the tallroads.
