guarded by the active presence of
Wm. Uenman at any Investigation
to be made into his sensational
dictaphone report, J. B. 1 >ensmore,
who Investigated the Mooney trials
for Secretary of Ivibor Wilson, will
return to Han Francisco.
This Interpretation of Secretary
Wilson's telegrams, announcing the
selection of Deri man to represent
the department of labor, was gen
eral here today.
The Han Francisco grand Jury,
which Secretary Wilson said was
not an Impartial body, may have
the sanction of the department now
that Denman and a special prose
cutor will lie present, Instead of
District Attorney Flckert, who was
named In the Densmore report.
Meanwhile, the Mooney strikes
which were ordered by many labor
bodies to begin December », as a
protest against the scheduled hang
ing of Thomas J. Mooney on De
comber 13, and which continued in
prospect when Mooney m sentence
was commuted to life imprisonment,
are being called off for the present.
There Is discussion, however, of
a general strike later on.
The appointment of Denman to
conduct the Flckert probe was an
nounced In a letter from Secretary
Wilson to Mayor Holph. Secretary
Wilson promised the fullest co
operation on the part of the special
Secretary Wilson has also ap
pealed to labor not to continue
their plans for a general strike In
Mooney'* behalf.
"No strike," says his appeal, "can
give a fair trial to Mooney, nor
will It produce a particle of evl
dence that will be helpful In se
curing Justice."
Dispatches frntn Waxhlnctnn state
that Frank I'. Walsh, former Joint
chairman of the national war labor
board, will tour the country In the
defense of Mooney.

LEEDS, Eng.. Dec. 7.—(Noon)—"The British at this
moment are crossing the Rhine," Lloyd George announced
in a speech here today.
That the allied armies of occupation in Germany will
face the necessity of quieting riots and outbreaks in various

killed. Demonstrations of various kinds have taken place
and the spirit of unrest seems to be on the increase in
