t Lodge Says That Wilson Letter
j Makes Agreement on Peace
I Treaty Impossible
j WASHINGTON, Jan. 9. President
II Wilson's decision that the league of
m nations Issue should be placed before
m the voters as "a solemn referendum,"
, nnd William J. Bryan's contention that
the Democratic party cannot go before
m the country on the question but should
m accept such compromises "as may be
I- possible" are tho twin surprises of
JL the conclave of party chieftains which
v found its climax in the annual Jackson
m. Day dinner.
I The president's message to the par
M ty, written from -the sick room in the
I "White House, made no lnention of a
I third term for himself and no an-
nouncement of an impending rctire
1 ment to private life, as many had pre
f dieted it would.
1 Bryan Takes Issue,
j Mr. Bryan's speech, taking definite
I issue with the president'sdecision on
1 tho great question, was accompanied
f by a statement that he was not speak
L iiig as a candidate for the presidential
r nomination. Many of the Democrat
I diners freely said that portion was
I distinct s.urpLiso;to them.,
f Today the rank and file of the Dem
it ocratic party as well as the leaders
m throughout the country are studying
the opposite announcements of the
! two national leaders and are attempt
; ; ing to assess their effect on the par-
ty's fortunes at the nominating con
, : vention which will be held in San
i Francisco June 28th and at the polls
! : next November.
: Many political observers feel that it
is yet too early to accurately estimate
1 the position in which the cleavage be"
! iween the president and tho foremost
Democrat in private life leaves the
party. They feel that the situation
'. must settle down a little and that the
opinions of the rank and file must be
1 ; sounded.
What Will Happen? m
!: Whether the position of the two
' men, definitely announced, means a I
fight in tho national conventiun rerui-i
L niscent of the spectacular battle in
I Baltimore in 1012 when Mr. Bryan
I forced the president's nomination,
a none of the party leaders Is willing to
l predict for publication.
I Sentiment nmong the Democratic
t" leaders at the Jackson dinner as ex-
pressed in their speeches, seemed to
m . be divided between support ot tnei
ftjm ' president's position and Mr, Bryan's
zM . position, while some of the men who'
IH )' are in the list of nominating possibili-
M 'j ties did not touch on the subject at all.!
l . It seems agreed that Mr. Bryan's I
p argument that the treaty should be i
; ' ratified with such compromises as may
: be possible will give a tremendous ini
petus to the movement which steadily
, ; has Seen going on in the undercur-
j rents of the senate for a compromise
of all factions in putting through the

Turkey, the allied powers are attempt
ing to find some solution of the prob-'
lem of expelling the Turks from Eur- 1

among the Mohammedan peoples as

Control of Constantinople.
One project which has been brought
into discussion contemplates the as
sumption of tho control of Constanti

declaration of the Slty as a free port
and the actual administration of tlie

the Mohammedan population of coun
tries and colonies simh as India, JJgypt,
Tunis, Morocco and possibly the Ma
lays of the Philippines if the United '
States can bo induced to participate!
to that extent.
Full Powers Provided. I
It is proposed to clotho this commis
sion with full powers to control Con
stantinople politically and to adminis
ter the local government. But to sat
isfy the Mohammedans the sultan and
his suite would bo permitted to reside
there and to exerelse from there all
of the functions of the head of his
church. His position would? therefore.
in some measure correspond to that of
the pope in Rome after he had been
divested of his temporal powers.

that, they denied steel workers "their

The strike in the steel mills and fur

I at Its inception involved 3G7.000 men,

The announcement was contained in

said that it had its inception a St.

secretary of tho committee then form
ed to organize the steel tradeif. All IH
preliminary work was compleTed and
the striko called September 22, last. jH
Nine states were affected and 367,000
quit work. Steel company executives
said they were not surprised tha. the IH
strike had been called off, as tho IH
strikers have been drifting back to
work for several months. Many mills,
1 it was added, had long ago been able
to operate full time with full forces,
1 the principal troublo being the lack of
common labor, which formed the back
bone of the strike.

his resignation as secretary-treasurer
of tho strike committee and said he iH
would be succeeded by J. G. Brown of iH
