sage of Additional Railroad
Legislation to Compel!
Pre-Strike Insuiry
Republican* Demand Complete Inves
tigation of Lawson's “Leek”
Charges; State Department to
Be Source of Disclosures
By the United Press.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2.—Congress
resumed its labors today, after a re
cess thru the Christmas holidays. i
The resumption of business found!
President Wilson insistent in mood I
and determined upon the passage of
additional railroad legislation, which)
will include a bill compelling an inves-!
tigation before strikes are called.
It is believed that the*President is i
somewhat displeased with the Broth- j
erhoods’ opposition measure.
As legislation and serious problems
continue to pile up, the prospects of
an extra session seem to be greater
than ever before.
Following a conference with Thos.
W. Lawson, Chairman Henry intro
duced a bill regulating the New York
Stock Exchange.
The Republicans demanded an
"open and above-board" investigation
of Lawson’s charges.
It is admitted on all sides that a
serious "leak” has been discover ed in
the State Department. Senate Wm.
J. Stone, chairman of the reign
Relations Committee, blamed the
“present system of civil service.”
From the floor Senator ' Stone re
ferred to Lawson as a “low cn a i ire'
and a “disgusting asr.”
Senator Stone, reading clip
pings from newspapers wherein he is
by the
»tly denied the .ecusation, and said
at the “secreta found their way out
the State Department.”
A storm of charges and counter-’
targes in ro, ard to the “leak” broke

Answer to President Wilson’s
Note Forthcoming and Will
Explain Basis of Allied
Peace Negotiations
By the United-Press.
LONDON, J-n. 2.—The Allies will
probably answer President Wilson’s'
note soon, and it is expected to be of,
the same character as the one sent to;
Germany, and will probably be issued 1
from Paris. The note will be plain
speaking, and a clear statement of the)
i terms on which the Allies will con- ■
1 sider peace negotiations.
The British press hopes that the
note will indicate that the Allies prob
ably will subscribe to the Russian am
bition to oust Turkey from Europe,
; and obtain the Dardanelles, as well aa
i the Italian ambition to wrest from
j Austria a considerable slice of terri-
Itory; also the French ambition to re
take Alsace and Lorraine.
| All these hopes and ambitions of]
j the Allies are classified in the cate-'
| gory of “Reparation and guarantee.”

United Press Demonstrates Its Superiority Over All Other News
Organizations With “Scoops” Furnished The Daily Tribune
From the war fronts in Eu-,
rope; thru foreign cabinet cri
ses; in covering our own coun
try’s unprecedented election;
from South America, Australia,
and every nook and corner of
the United States and Canada.
The Tribune has shown its su-
I periority as a dissemination of
local and telegraphic news,
thru the United Press and our
'able staff of local and editorial
writers, since the birth of The
, Daily Tribune on October 9,
i There is n& superior news-gather-
I ing force in the world than the
[United Press, of which The Tribune is
a member.
Standing out as the biggest foreign
| news beat of the year—-in fact, one
of the biggest journalistic accom
plishments cf a decade—is the Inter--
view with David Lloyd-George, now*
the British premier. In this interview
'the then British war minister told
( the world thru the United Press the
attitude of the Allies toward the war.
‘The interview has been quoted time
I after time' in the peace discussion
that has recqqtly arisen. It virtually
, has become a state document to
I which the entire world refers.
From thia high mark of the year in

i crises in this country, and iri hand

most severe tests of speed, accuracy

President Wilson, even by the narrow- '

BERLIN, Jan. 2.—The opinion of
the German press, typifying the gen
eral public opinion toward peace, has
now taken on a belligerent attitude,
and it. is the opinion of all now that
“war to the hilt” should be the only
reply to the Allied note. The editor*
declare that the Allied note does not
i deserve a written reply,
I It is the almost unanimous decision
, that Germany’s answer to the Allied
I rejection of peace proffers must be
I by her armies in the field.
The Berlin editors are more bitter
than their printed statements indi
cate. The leading writer on the Lo
kal Anzeiger, Germany’s great news
paper, was asked how Germany should
veply to the Allied note.
“Hold out!” he said. ‘‘lt is in
sanity for Europe to bleed death
, wards, but the Allies refuse peace.
, Our reply must come fiom our ar
! mies. Let Hindenburg answer.”

The 640-acre homestead law au

to designate as stock-raising lands,
subject to homestead entry in tracts
, not to exceed 610 acres, lands “tha

Qualified homestead entrymen may
