It Is also said today that if some obliging Jiislbe of the Supreme court will step down I mm the bench not lung after Mr. Siitlierlnnd'a appoint ment to his cabinet ioitlon. the place nude vacant will lie filled by the pro motion of Mr. Sutherland. Humor and something mure substantial than luiimr are Insistent that Mr. Hurtl ing desire I eventually to put Mr. Sutherland on the highest bench In the bind. Something thut I believe la not allo- getlM-r gossip, and In fact come pretty near lielng the truth, la that a man whoae name has not yet been men tioned In the newspuiM-r for cabinet preferment la to be given the place of , hlef of liila.r.

The friend of the President-elect did any this much definitely: "Today Mr. Mellon bus the edge on Mr. Imwea and Mr. Key nobis, but uevertholess there Is aeetuiiigly little to chiHiae aa between the chances of Chicago and Pittsburgh."

It may not be uninteresting to set down one of the view of aoine of Mr. Iliirdltig'a friends cniici-riiiiig thi probuble ap pollitiiielit. Kvcry one of the President elect's close advisers admit that be. uuse of personal rclulloiis, friendship and In debtedness for loyal service, Mr. Hurd ing Is in duly bound to give Mr. Ihiughcrty what be want, but never theless the iiilentloii to make Mr. I ii uglier! y attorney general has uroiiMed some crlticlsiu.

If thla suggestion hail been followed, or should be followed. Mr. Sutherland, so Mr. Hiirdiug'a friends argue, could have hivu put on the Supreme bench ufier the lupe of a few mouth, ami then Mr. Daugherty could have been promoted from Ihe otllce of solicitor generul to thut of attorney general. Many Change March 4. The change Ibul are coming lu Washington, ou March 4 will be marked and many, and they will vary lib various went of activity. lu the two houses of emigre there will be almost revolutionary t haute.

There will be no shiirp line of ilemnrkntlon between the Itcpiihlh-nn and the iHunnrrnta so fnr na those who sit on the ftemorrntlc side of the house are concerned. Sit Where They Pleaee. Some time ago the house pussed a rule thnt members could alt where they w anted to. so long aa I.epulillcan kept to their aide of the house and the liemncrnts to their aide. In the old day each member had a aeut which he u iiipoKcI to occupy at all times. Now. with the exception of men who are In chnrge of bills which are up for passage or rejection, mem ber alt where they want to. The Influx of Kepuhllcan will force ninny of tlietn over on the Democratic aide of the house. It la possible, of course, that one or two rows of desks will be set aside for them, hut If not and they alt where they choose no stranger looking nf thnt side of the chamber enn tell the Democrats frotn the Itepulillcui until tl.ey open their mouth to spen k on some party Issue.

In the house debate cuu he ktopia'd by a rule, but In the sennte the talk goes on and on mid on. It la curious what fuith members nf congress and, per hups ihe puhllc gen erally, have In the predictions of dom inuut party lenders In house and sen ate. The predictions fail to come through time after time, but such ap parently la the simple faith of the many that, they continue to give cre dence to the prophetic of the leader, session lu and session out. People Want Free Seed. Congress has Just had It usuul dis cussion on the yearly appropriation for the distribution of free plunts und free garden anil (lower seed to the con stituent of the ujeuihers. The an nounced program of economy and re trenchment held on Its lu ges uo men tion of seed and plunts.

It was the prediction of leudcrs thut this pi'nsis-d ecoliimiy, a It l culled, would he sanctioned, but none of the follower of the leaders believed that it would be sum tinned for one uioiucut.

CURRENT EVENTS Railway Labor Board Refuses to Abrogate the National Working Agreement. IS WITHOUT JURISDICTION Senate Committees Report Against Naval Holiday and Suspension of Immigration Germans Ar Pre paring Their Counter-Pro-posal en Reparation. By EDWARD 'V. PICKARD. This year' first big lalair tljjht. that betweeu the ruilways antl the rail workers, really o-ued lust week when the national railroad labor board took up the apia-ul of the rail executives for Immediate sbrogutiou of the na lionul working agreements. The bear ing drew to Chicago the heavy guns of both the e-xecutlves and the rail way brotherhiHids. The hoard decided uguinst the ruilwaya, which, however, have not abundiMied the fight. As waa foreseen, President Wllsou declined to Intervene, though asked to hy both sides, staling he would not take any action "which would Inter fere with the orderly procedure of the Interstate commerce commission or the railway labor board." Krunk P. Walsh, counsel for the rail unions, und It. M. Jewell, head of their depurtmeiit of the Ainerlcun Federa tion of Lulair, are leudiug the tVht of the brotherhood. Their first ac tion was to question the Jurisdiction of the labor board In this mutter, on the ground thut a question Involving the tinnnclul ublllty of the roods to pay Is within the province of the In terstaie commerce commission, the la bor board being limited by law to questitais of wages and working con ditions. This poiut the bourd decided wus well taken. Chairman Hurtow said the board for sfvertil month had been considering the natlonul working agreement, clause hy clause, to determine whether any parts were unreasonable, and he urged (hat It be "not further Interrupted by the Introduction of unwarrtiuled demunds by either purty. The second part of the general argu ment of Mr. Wulsh . as that the move by the railroad executives Is part of a "Wall street conspiracy" to kill the power of the unions, estubllsh the open shop, crush collective burgiilnlng and retime wages. "Twelve New York banks," said Mr. Walsh, "through Interlocking direc torates, control IC class 1 road, which have NO per cent of the class I uille ag antl 70 per cent of the total rail road tnlleiige of the I'nlted States. Iu the bearings of ihe l.ockwood commit tee In New York the testimony re vealed a movement on the purt of ecrtutii Interests to crush unions and establish the 'open shop.' It Is di rected first at the two basic Intlua tries of building construction antl transportation." A great many persons not directly Concerned in the present controversy believe with Mr. Walsh that there Is a concerted movement t establish the oH-u simp, and, likewise, a great many persons ure lu sympathy with such a movement. These persons see the Impending conflict a a tight not be tween labor and iipitul. but between tyrannical luhor unions und industry. Most of them have suffered Hint are suffering from Ihe Intolerance of holli orguul.etl Ittlior ami organised cupllul, and they are wry tired of It. What railroad men said was one of the most far reaching decision msde hy the luhor hoard wus handed down lust week. Ihe- ruling being that It was the duty of the Koslim and Maine railroad to confer with the committees of the American Federation of Luhor over the grievances of Ita workers. Kmployees altl the decision upheld the right of Independent organizations of railway worker to p reseat their grievance to road otttclala. Iu the lloston and Mulue esse It was said a conference a refused because thus with the grievances were not a party to the nntloiiiil agreement. Inspired by the conviction that the I'nlted States should have a navy if strong as that of any other nation, the senate naval affairs committee re ported against Vine Borah resolution for' a six months' naval construction holiday. The report, presented hy Senator Poliulexter, suld the commit tee was a anxious as possible to bring about a reduction of armaments, hut thut no disarmament would be of -value unless It were general and, In the case of the great maritime powers, universal. I'nhappily this Is not the ense at the present time," continued the report, "and we must deal with conditions as they exist. For one nation to leave Itself exposed to at tack while another Is preparing all the engines of war would be not only folly, but Ihe greatest danger to the la'iice of the world that could be Imug Inetl." A teniMirnry suspension of building. It was pointed out, would cost the gov- eminent Immense um through de terioration of material and disloca tion of contracts ; would throw large number of workmen out of employ ment, and. by rendering It difficult or impossible to reassemble these forces should work ou vessels' be resumed. would give all immense advantage to powers that had not Interrupted the construction of their fleet. The committee upheld the conten tion of the navy hoard that the capltul ship Is not obsolete. It recommended that twelve destroyers and six sub marines, authorized In 1016 but not yet i-ontracted for. be eliminated from the building program. These 18 ships weTe ex-cted to cost the government about $."i,IH,lNHt. The committee sug gested the use of this amount for the construction of two airplane carriers nf the most modern type and of the most adviintugeous size. Another aeuute committee that ou Immigration also took Importuut ac- tlou when It rejected, by a vote of 5 to 4, the bill passed by the house pro viding for the suspension of immigra tion for one year. Senutors Johnson, Washington ; Hurrls, lieorgla; Hur risoii, Mississippi, and King, I' tali, voted for the bill, and Colt, Hhode Island, chairman; Dillingham, Ver mout; Sterling, South Dukota; Keyes, New Hampshire, aud Phelun, Cullfor- uiu, agulust It. Next duy the committee begun con sideration of the Dillingham substi tute for the house bill, aud the ludica tlous were thut It would be acted ou favorubly. This measure provides that the number of aliens of any na tionality entering as liumlgruuts In uuy one year shall be limited to 5 per lent of the total number of persons of such nationality already In the coun try, aa determined by the latest cen sus. The legislation would not apply to Immigrants from the American con tinents aud adjacent Islands, nor to the Asiatic "barred tone," from which Immigrant already are excluded, nor to Japan, Immigration from which is regulated by agreement. Some of the radical restrlctionlsts will make fight to have the arcentage cut down, peiiiups as low as 2 per rent. Iu Washington It was said there was no likelihood that the bill would gt through congress before March 4. Frequent churge thut thousand of silk or tllsuliled ex-service men are being Inadequately, cared for by the government hud their effect on con gress. The senate adopted un amend ment to the sundry civil bill appro priating ir.'.MMI.CMK) for rive uew build ings uml Sil.HSJ.IlllU for the enlarge ment and ImproveiiMMit of existing hospitals. The house, hy unanimous vote, passed a bill carrying an ap propriation for 11:1.110,' "i for addi tional hospitals and enlarged facilities. Flider this bill five new hospitals are to be located one lu the ceiitrul At lantic states, one In the region of the Great Lakes, one In the central south western states, one in Ihe llocky mountain states and one In southern California. In addition, the secretary of war is Instructed to take over at once and equip for hospital una Fori Muckensle, Wyoming, sud Fort Walla Walla, Wusbliigtou. Foreign Minister Simons haa uotl Bed the allies that lb German gov- eminent will send qualified delegates to the reparations conference In Lon don March 1, "provided negotiations are based on proposals which th Ger man government reserve to Itself the right to lay before the conference." This acceptance being satisfactory. Doctor SlMions called Into consulta tion a large number of expert In finance, Industry and economics, anil they proceeded to frame the cotinter proosals which Germany will submit. Premier Hrluntl has obtained ironi the French chamber of deputies the supiHirt he required before going t the London conference. The cnaruoer voted 3!.ri to 83 to approve the repara tions terms framed by thesupreme council, and then gave a vote of con fidence In Brland, 387 to 125. The op position was led by member of the former Clemenceau cabinet The pre mier closed the debate with the state ment: "The fate of Germany lies In her own hands. Should ahe, after May 1, 1921, refuse to fulfill her pledges the French government can be relied upon to take all measures to make her." The Hansa league, the great eco nomic association of Germany, says inn uy of its members urge a boycott of French and Kugllsh goods In favor 0 goods from America, and adds that the directors of the league may adopt the suggestion If Great Britain con tinues to support France In the repa rations claims. Of the two great military operations In the Near East that are believed to be Impending, one, that of tba aovlet Itussiuns against Poland and Roif maula, has not yet been started. The other, the conflict between the Greeks and the Turkish nationalists, may al ready be under wyy. The newa from Asia Minor that comes through Parts la curefully censored, and advices by other routes are conflicting at thla w riting. There Is no doubt, however. that the Greeks have been concen trating large forces for this Jght, and that Kemal Pasha also haa gathered together most of his troops for what he hopes to make a decisive opera tion. Greece relies on financial as sistance from the allies for thla war fare, and without It she will have great difficulty, for her expenses are now vastly greater than her revenuea. Chronic trouble-makers and trouble- seekers are1 trying to find In the Greek operations In Asia Minor a cause for serious conflict between France and Great Britain ; but there la no reason to believe that their hopea will be realized. Walter Lyman Brown, director of American relief work In Europe, haa been making a tour of all the coun tries In his jurisdiction, and la skep tical concerulng the expected Russian offensive thla spriug. He thinks th Bolshevik government would scarcely dure to undertake an attack on Poland that would lose to Its cause the sup port of the workers of western Europe. He says Hungary and Latvia are sure the attack Is coming, Poland 1 nervous, and Czecho slovakia and Esthouta believe the Russians will re frain. ' The loyalists of South Africa, bead ed by Generul Siiuius, "won a great vic tory In the recent elections, and aa a result the provinces of the Cape of Gootl Hope, Trunsvual, Natal and Orange Free State will continue aa one of the self governing dominion of the British empire Instead of setting up an Independent republic. The op position was led by General Hertrog, wliti asserted the right of South Africa to secede from the empire despite the act of union. In India a more liberal self-government wus put Into effect last week when Prince Arthur of Coiuiaught ar rived at Delhi a personal representa tive of the enia-ror, King George, and Issued a proclamation announcing tba surrender of much government power to the native princes. R. C. Itoper of Nebraska make th Interesting announcement that Wil liam 1. Ilrysn aud hla brother, CharU-a, whom Mr, Roper represents, are planning to reorganize thi Demo cratic party so that the Cox-Whit and McAdoo-Woolley factlona shall be eliminated and th control put In th banda of tb "middle class Demo crats." The program, aald air. Roper, will be made public on March 18, W, J. Uryau'a birthday.
