WAITS ACTION
OF HIGH COURT
ONNEWBERRY
Senate Expects No Move to
Oust Convicted Michigan
Member.
CONTROL IN BALANCE
DETROIT, March 22.—Although no ac
tion Is exported by the senate looking to
the unseating of Senator Truman H.
Newberry of Michigan, pending the final
decision in the case by the supreme court
of tb* United States, the case is fraught
with 00 many possibilities as to arouse
widespread speculation in the political
circles.
The case, as it stands before the sen
ate committee on privileges and elec
tions, is one of a contest for the seat
from Michigan between Newberry and
Henry Ford. This one seat, it is de
clared here, means the political control
of the senate. Counting Newberry, there
are forty-nine republicans and forty
seven democrats. The seating of Ford
would make a tie and the vice president’s
vote would give committee chairmanships
to the democrats.
Newberry's decision not to resign from
the senate pending final action on the
case arouses interest as to his reception
in the senate when he returns to 'Wash
ington. The rules of senatorial courtesy,
however, are so well established as to
lean to the belief there will be every con
sideration for him until the highest court
acts.
The special subcommittee which has
been handling the Newberry-Ford case
will meet next week to consider its
course of action. Conferences probably
will be held with attorneys for New
berry and Ford. The conviction of New
berry, even by the highest court, would
not automatically disqualify him from
the senate, as the bodies of congress are
sole Judges of their respective member
ships.
It was said in several quarters that if
Newberry should resign, In anticipation
of unfavorable action by the senate, eith
er Congressman Patrick H. Kelley of
Lansing or former Senator William Alden
Smith of Grand Rapids, both republic
ans. would be appointed by Gov. Albert
E. Sleeper.
COAL MEN FEAR
VOLCANO HIDES
(Continued From Page One.)
agreement was reached on the commis
sion's report.
This last faint hope was blasted, how
ever, when United States Marshal Mark
Storen began to make arrests last week.
Coal men- are now convinced that the
prosecutions will be carried on to a
finish in the federal court and many
interesting predictions as to the future
coal outlook are being made.
Coal operators express the opinion that
If a conspiracy under the Lever act can
op construed from the Joint wage con
ferences, all wage negotiations in the
future will be greatly hampered and that
this may cause another serious shortage
of coal next year. Miners also fear this
point more than any other said to be
included in the indictment, as the prac
tice of collective bargaining is the basis
of the United Mine Workers of America.
Wage negotiations between operators
and miners are now pending to be con
summated April 1. If Joint conferences
are considered tllegal and In violation of
the law, coal men say that such a confer
ence to consummate the April agreement
must necessarily be postponed indefinite
ly, which may result in a serious reduc
tion of production and a grave shortage
of fuel next winter.
According to a statement issued by At
torney General Palmer, President Wilson
is now urging operators and miners to
work out their contracts for the new
year beginning on April 1. This state
ment, coupled with the reported allega
tions that wage contracts are unlawful,
has placed coal men in a quandary anu
they are at a loss as to the proper course
of procedure. Practically all those ar
rested under the indictment are refusing
to discuss the case publicly on account of
a lack of knowledge as to wlfat the
charges made include.
A report that the exchange of price
quotations also figures in the indictment
has led to an expression of the opinion
that coal trade organizations similar to
the Indiana Coal Trade bureau are con
sidered illegal in practice and may come
in for an airing in federal court.
The Indiana Coal Trade Bureau, with
headquarters in Terre Haute, is said to
be practically anew organization and
only of minor importance to the general
coal industry. It was organized a few
years ago for the reported purpose of
obtaining a fair distribution of railroad
cars. The bureau receives a report each
day from mines within its organization,
giving price quotations, the cost of pro
duction and the amount of wages paid
ont, with the amount of coal hoisted.
This information is in turn released to
each member of the bureau and in that
manner price quotations are distributed.
C. E. Hall, manager of the Walter Bled
soe coal offices in Terre Haute, was for
merly ‘secretary of the Coal Trade Bu
reau, but resigned about a year ago.
•Jonas Waffle, formerly connected with
the Chicago, Milwaukee & Gary railroad,
is now secretary of the organization. It
is said that similar trade bureaus are
being operated in various coal centers
of the country.
MAY THROW LIGHT
ON STATE CONTRACTS.
The check-off system of paying minera’
union dues is considered of minor im
portance in the general agreement be
tween operators and miners, and was
said to have been instituted more as a
matter of convenience than anything else.
It is predicted that some Interesting
information as to the manner of handling
contracts to furnish state Institutions
with coal will come to light during the
trial of the indicted men. It la known
that the grand jury went Into this mat
ter and it is said that Incidents were
discovered wherein the state was re
quired to pay more for coal than the
price at the various mines.
The trial of indicted men will not be
held until next November, In federal
court All will be arralgnod on May 4,
and it is said that the contents of the
indictment may bo kept secret until that
date.
Arrests of the fifty-two Indiana men
probably will be completed within the
next few weeks, and it Is expected that
seventy-three others, living in different
states, will be placed under bond within
a short time.
MANY OF INDICTED
LIKELY TO SURRENDER.
There will be no undue haste In mak
| ing arrests in Indiana, according to
I Marshal Storen, as there Is plenty of
Itime in which to serve the capiasas be
■fore arraignment day. It Is thought
■that many of those indicted will sur-
Br wider themselves to the marshal, as
K-t is generally known just about who
Brill be under charges.
A It was expected that deputies from
Bie marshal's office would today visit
Herre Haute, where some eighteen or
■wenty coal men are said to be wanted
In the Indictment. Those living in the
[southern part of the state probably wilt
I be arrested by a deputy marshal sta
tioned at Evansville and in the northern
part by a deputy stationed at Hammond,
according to Mr. Storen.

FRANCE EXPECTS
BIG GERMAN WAR
PARIS, March 22.—Warfare on a big
scale is threatened in the Ruhr district
of Germany between the spartadsts and
German government troops.

gian troops. Two German officers are
today dashing to Part* by motor car,
bringing the latest information as tb
the exact conditions in this danger spot.
Forty thousand spartacist troops, sup
ported with flame throwers and ''sev
enty-fives," are massed in the Ruhr coal
fields and Industrial belt, according to
Information reaching the foreign office.
President Ebert is threatening to open
an offensive campaign against the Ruhr
epartaelsts tomorrow, surrounding their
army with loyal troops.
Gen. von Berfeldt is reported in com
mand of the spartacist*. The Ruhr
fspartacists are well armed and demon
strated their administrative ability by
taking over tho whole Ruhr district from
the government authorities.
It was under stroil that the French
government would not take any formal
action until the two German offtcem

Candidate** have their troubles. Jftt
the least of these is the necessity for
shaking hands. An overzealous voter
broke several bones In the right hand
of Edward C. Ttoner, republican candi
date for governor. Now he is shaking
with his left hand.
It begins to appear that soldier candi
dates may be in the majority in the
coming election. The latest former sol
dier to enter the game Is Robert L.
Moorhead, who is a veteran of both the l
Spanish-American war and the world
j war. He served as a private in the for
mer and a colonel in the latter. He is
seeking the republican nomination for
state senator from Marlon county. Mr.
Moorhead Is the business manager of the
Bobbs-Merrill company.
R. C. .Brown has announced his candi
dacy for the democratic nomination for
congress In the Third district. He Is
seeking the nomination on a wet plat
form “Law-made angels never have
strength to flap their wlngß and fly,”
he says In his announcement.
James Kfrvan, DUO Ruckle street, has
j filed a petition with the county clerk as
j a candidate for the democratic nonitna

van was county commissioner several
years ago.
William Jennings Bryan will be the

| tberlng agitation in favor of brigading
American troop*. Sims said the mem
j orandnm “probably" was written by Am-
I baasador Fsge.
I 16 was dated Jan. 14, 1918. and read, In
, part:
“There was a small dinner last night
at whtch were represented Balfour. Cecil
and Heading and the host, a very im
portant person. There was also pres
nt another man who hold* somewhat
j radical views as to the most efficient
1 way to employ America’s manpower on
■ the western front. Instead of organising
a separate army with Its own lines of
communication and supply.
“The gentlemen above mentioned we*c
I greatly Interested In the expression of
! these views and highly approved of them
and the diacuaaion turned upon the
means to be employed to realise them.”
"Manifestly the pressure in favor of
: the scheme is Increasing. It Is becoming
; apparent that the hulk of the tonnage
j assumed to transport the army ia being
: to bring over tbs material to create the
facilities for handling and supplying a
projected army so large that it can prob
ably never be landed in France—at least
i not in time to get into the game.
"It t believed that the pressure is
now, or soon wHI be. such as to en
danger the positions of those who con
tinue to oppose the scheme.
“It Is of course desirable to increase
this pressure as soon and as much a*
| possible.
“The reasons in favor of the scheme
are so plain and simple as to be readily
j understood by the men on the street.
I “The reason# opposed to It are purely
i eontlmental—national and state pride and
i ambition for personal distinction. There
| is no sound military resort against It.
“Therefore, it is of the utmost im-
I portance that this matter be clearly ex
plained to tho man on the street.
| “It Is up to yon and the men of
: your cloth,”
I "This memorandum is Intended as Brit
ish propaganda," Pittman declared. "It
I* propaganda against Pershing and
against the establishment of a separate
army.”
RIMS OaiRCTS TO
TERM PROPAGANDA.
“It isn’t propaganda," 81ms rotored.
“It lsmply predicts what actually took
place. It is what Bliss recommended and
Gen. Pershing did when the cris came.”
Regarding making the American fleet
of the British force, Sims is alleged to
have written to the department July 16,
1917, the following;
"The first course open to ns which !
naturally occurs to mind, it hat we,
should look upon our service as part of
the combined allied aerTlce, of which tho
British grand fleet, is the main body and
all other allied naval forces disposed
throughout the world are necessary
branches thereof.”
Charging that 81ms favored using
drafted men as shipyard laborers, Pitt
man read from an alleged letter by 81ms
t othe navy department Nov. 15, 1917:
“It has even been suggested that, in
view of tho present situation a good pro- i
portion of our national army could
probably be more effectively utilised in
prosecution of the war by actually utllli-
Ing tho men as labor in American ship
yards."
Sims acknowledged that early In the
war, he favored utilising a portion of the
American man power in shipyards.

INDIANA FAVORS
STATE GROUPING
Holds It Fair Basis for Fixing
Railroad Rates.
John E. Benton, attorney at Wash
ington for the Indiana public service
commission, was ordered to go before the
interstate commerce commission today
and represent the stale commission as
favoring the grouping of railroad proper
ties by territory for appraisal os basis
for rate fixing.
Indiana Is Included In the Central
Freight association territory, which com
prises states east of the Mississippi and
north of the Mason and Dixon line. This
j district would form one group under the
! proposed plan. Other groups would be
the southern tier of states and the west
ern states.
TAVOBS ADDITION
OF TWO SYSTEMS.
The Indiana commission favors re
taining the present classification with
J the addition of the C. & O. and Norfolk
I&. Western lines. The interstate com
merce commission decided In favor of
the official classification plan, when act
ing as an advisory board to the federal
railroad artmlmstratlcn.
The pnbllc service commission and the
Indiana Chamber of Commerce have
filed with the interstate commerce coia
i mission ft petition alleging dlscrimlna
; tson In class freight rates between In
i’ (liana points to St. Paul, Minneapolis
! and northwest territory ■* compared
i with rates from Illinois points. The
discrimination ia held to be injurious
; to Indian# shippers.
;ALLEGED DIFFERENCES
IN RATES BET OUT.
Rates from Indiana points to the ter
ritory named have increased 75 per cent
. since October, 1914, while rates from Illi
nois points hare Increased only 25 per
: rent. It Is alleged. Rates from Indiana
points to St. Paul are said to be from 36
to 86 per cent higher than Illinois rates.
Forty-one railroads are named as de
' fendant*. The same case was heard by
: the railroad administration In 1918 ano
recommendations were made to the effect
that the rates were unjust, but the find
ings were made too late for relief to be
afforded before railroads were returned
to private ownership.
Goodrich Back Soon;
Then Extra Session
Gov. Goodrich ia exported to leave
, Jxckronvllle, Fla„ on his trip north
I March 28, It was said at the governor's
| office today
Statehonse official* predict that a call
for a special session of the legislature
will be issued within a few day* after
the governor’s return and that the legis
lature will assemble soon after the first
week in April.
Doubt concerning the calling of .*
special session was removed when Otto
L. Rians*, auditor of state, issued a
statement demanding a session to ap
propriate money to keep state Institu
tions In operation.

wns at the corner of the boulevard and
Woodward avenue, Detroit. That the
Packard, Hudson, Chalmers, Continental
Motors and many other of Detroit’*,
largest automotive Industries occupied
ideal sites on that city’s most beautiful
boulevards and avenues. When you go
to Detroit these are the show places to
which you are first taken with their
whole-hearted civic pride. And it la
what made Detroit the fourth city of the
United States of America.
“We proclaim Indianapolis as onr
home and defy any one to question our
loyalty In wanting it to be the most
beautiful American city, and we sin
cerely believe the building that wiH
meet with onr Ideal for this location can
Justly add to the civic pride of Its
citizens.”
