upon seven uf hia ten advisers, while
the men to whom he will entrust the

still are to tie definitely selected. Form

being considered. They are James J

worker; T. V. O'Counor of New York

James Iiuncan of Massachusetts, who
hn I teen an official of the American
Federation of Labor and of the Oraulte
Cutters' union, and John I. Nolan of
California, member of congress and
an iron moulder. Mr. O Connor waa
one of Mr. Harding's visitor In St
Augustine last week, and it waa an
nounced that he would confer with
the PreHldent-elect again this week.
If the southern states are to have
a representative In the cabinet and
they are urgently claiming such recog
nition It mny be he will be the new
secretary of commerce. Many south
enters think this would be fitting In
view of the existing movement for In
dustrial expansion In the Sooth. Three
gentlemen from below Mason and
IMxon's line have been especially rec
ommended to Mr. Harding. They are
T. II. Huston and Newell Sanders of
Tennessee, and Congressman C Bas-
com Slemp of Virginia. Many peti
tion have been Sent to St Augustine
asking that either Herbert Hoover or
John Haya Hammond be given tha
commerce portfolio, and among others
mentioned for the post la Charles D.
Hllles, former chairman of the Nation

with resentment that the President

to a committee of the "German-American
Citizens' league" headed by the
notorloua George Sylvester Vlereck,
former editor of the Fatherland. Why
cannot this man and his colleagues,
who still cling desperately to their
hyphen, lie quiet until time and good
behavior have somewhat rehabilitated
them In the opinion, of decent Ameri
cans T Here are the demands, request
and opinions which these hyphenates
had the effrontery to present to the
President-elect :
1. Thnf Americans of German birth
should participate equally with their
fellow citizen In the government of
"our country."
2. Immediate peace with Germany
and the rejection of the "Infamous"
peace of Versailles.
3. A protest against the French an
nexation of the "ancient German
provinces of Alsace-Lorraine."
4. Immediate withdrawal of the
American forces from the occupied
portions of Germany.
A, Condemnation of British action
in Ireland us "In violation of the prin
ciples for which American blood was
shed aud American treasure lavished
In defense of the British empire dur
ing the World wnr."
6. CondemiiuHon of the "attempt to
embroil this country In a war with
Japan for the benefit of Great Britain."
7. Itejieal of the Panama canal tolls
set, which It haa been said would be
violation of our treaty with Great
Britain. ,
8. Opposition to eutangllng alli
ances, "especially any alliance with
Great Britain."
9. Investigation of the government
handling of alien property Is de
manded. HI. Immediate release of Kugene V.
11. Resentment of attacks against
citizens of German descent
12. Prohibition condemned as "a
breeder of death, corruption and con
tempt for the law."
13. A study of Immigration "In
liberal spirit" urged.
Another man, who during the war
made himself only a little leas ob
noxious than Vlereck Oswald Gurri
son Vlllard ran Into a hornets' nest
when he undertook to deliver a Lin
coln birthday address at the Woman's
City club in Cincinnati. A great
crowd, made up largely of ex service
men snd men and women who lost
relatives In the war, tried to break
up the meeting, and only the Inter
vention of the police saved Vlllard
from possible Injury and enabled him
to go on with his speech.
Decidedly Interesting If not very
Important Is the attempt to Impeach
Culled Statea Judge Kenesaw M.
Land! of Chicago. The attack on
this spectacular Jurist, who Is both
much loved and much feared, came
from two sources and was bused on
two grounds, hut the actual move for
hi Impeachment waa made by Repre
sentative Benjamin Welty of Ohio,
who asks the senate to remove the
Judge from the bench because he ac
cepted the office of supreme arbiter
of organized baseball. The house
committee on Judiciary took up the
Welty charge, and also received an
opinion from Attorney General Pal
mer who ruled that Judge Lnnills had
committed no offense In holding the
two position. The other attack on
the Judge waa made by Senator N. B.
Dlul of South Carol Inn, who was eti
mged because Landia, In hearing the
case of an embezzling bank clerk, j
criticized the bank directors for pay
ing only f'.K) a month to a young man
who waa required to handle large
sum. the Judge acivptcd Dials

rather cutting thing about the sen-
ator'a Interest in bank, cotton mills
and child labor. As Dial has not been
an especially Influential member of
the senate It Is not likely hi outbreak
will have result.
The emergency tariff hill, suniuiseil.
ly designed for the relief of the farm
er, was passed by the senate on
Wednesday, but Willi such consider-
able amendments that the senate and
house conferees faced a bard task In
trying to complete the uieaiuro for
submission to the Presldeut. Anyhow
their labor probably Is wasted, for It
Is assured that Mr. Wilson will veto
the bill, and the vote In the senate
Indicated thnf It cannot be passed there
over the veto. Party lines among the
senators were broken In the voting.
Among those who availed the meas
ure most bitterly were Moses of New
Hampshire and Edge of New Jersey,
both Republicans, and Reed of Mis
souri, Democrat. The senate Is now
going to get through with the 11 big
appropriation bills which It bas not
yet passed and which Mr. Harding
hn especially requested shall be en
acted at this session.
Only an Immediate application of
the principle of collective bargaining
will settle the railway labor contro
versy and avert a national crisis In
the transportation Industry, according
to B. M. Jewell of the railway em
ployees' department of the American
Federation of Labor. He told tho
railway labor hoard last week that the
fight of the executives on the national
agreements wa a smoke screen to
obscure the fundamental Issues, and
made these suggestions:
"First, that the hoard refer tha na
tional agreements which are now .be
fore it to a Joint conference of the
representatives of the railroads and
of the labor organizations with the
recommendation that their agreements
be adjusted by negotiations aa soon a
possible, the board agreeing to pasa
Immediately upon auy points of dif
ference which may 'arise from tho
negotiation a.
"Second, that the board request the
representatives of the railroads and
representatives of the labor organiza
tions to meet the board In conference
to consider the establishment of
boards of adjustment as contemplated
by the transportation pact.
"Third, that in reply to Mr. Atter
htiry's notice to the board and bis
subsequent letter to the chairman ad
vising him that he contemplates filing
a flood of individual complaints to re
duce the wages of unskilled employees,
the hoard recommend to Mr. Atter
