Thai qunstlon of representation for the peoulev them selves, throuKh newspaper' correspon dents, took precedence over every other problem before the peace con ference today. The Importance of this matter was evidenced by the fact j that the Ieafftie of Nations, the Hussl- an situation, and other vital subjects ! had been subordinated to reaching an I amicable solution of the manner in which proceedings at the peaco table t are to be made public. President Wil- son is understood to be leading the fight for one of his principal points "open covenants of peace, openly ar rived at."

WAHHr.VOTON", Jan. 17- A confer ence of governors here to plan with '.he department of labor for putting the growing army of unemployed to work Immediately was proposed todav by Senator Kenyon. Kenyon and other members of congress are alarm ed at tho rapid increase of unem ployment and lack of any government plan for providing work. There la no lack of ideas in congress for cre Ulngr Job in the future, but how to supply w.irk now Is the problem worrying the legislators. Congress is being urged on 'every ' hand to solve the problem, which it is agreed. Is rapidly v.nin acute. 300.000 Jobless.' Kenyon said: "I am going to sugi gest to the department of labor that the governors of the states be urged to attend, either In person or through a representative, a conference with the department officials to work out some means of putting to work Im mediately more than 200,000 men. who, according to my Information, are jobless In tho United States. If the states will begin an emergency pro gram of work at once or as soon as weather conditions' permit, it may be possible to prevent untold suffering. Most of the state legislatures are now in session and could provide the ne cessary authority for, the emergency work." In addition Kenyon's suggestions two other ideas were advanced. Sen ator France of Marylu-nd, would move workers from Industrial centers where there is an oversupply of labor to places v here workers are needed- Withycouibc Against Meeting. SALEM. Jan. 17.

In Pendleton today. It is extended to I cover the entire Umatilla county. Th order aa Issued by Dr. dj. j.

This action as taken by the county! health officer and backed up by tlia county court after a conference with, ;h0 Jendleton Jieatth officers. There has been complaint that Pendleton people attending these country par ties are the cause of many "flu' cases here. Influensa conditions In Pendleton are probably better today than any other town In the state.

After the subject had been fully dis cussed for three and a half hours yes terday a resolution was unanimously passed asking the county court to pro ceed at once to have petitions circu lated calling for a special bonding election. These petitions will soon be In circulation and they will be return ed In time for the February meeting of the court. The court must then call an election to be held not sooner than 20 days nor longer off than 40 days. Objectors In 1lne. A feature of the meeting yesterday was that men who had previously op posed bonding for roads were active in the discuse'on for bonds and in framing lip' the proposition' to 'submit to Uie people. Among these were' W. W. Harrah and other prominent mem bers of the Farmers' Union. Assessor C. P. Strain, and others. With them there were all the good roads war horses, old and young, from every part of the county. - The only discussion of a controversial nature was mild in character and related to the amounts to be specified for the Cold Springs road and for the road from Nye to the Grant county line- Changes were made In each Instance es requested j and thus harmony and good spirit preserved. One of the satisfactory features of the bond schedule, as explained by Mr. Strain. Is that the amount pro rated for each section is almost absolutely in line with the percentage of assessment in each section. Hence the plan is not only workable from a construction standpoint but is ethical from the standpoint of assessment. I Committee Will Handle. . The task of helping the court put over the bond plan will be In tha hands of a mamoth advisory commit-, tee composed of all who were present ' yesterday with additional men from each road district or community not represented at the meeting. An ex ecutive committee of 10 will have di rect charge of the campaign. Thompson Is Endorsed. On motion the meeting voted unan imously recommending that the gov ernor reappoint W.

Mr. Thompson was a speaker at various times during the meeting and explained much as to the work ings of the commission and the pro cedure for securing state aid for the county. After the tentative plans had been outlined by Judge Marsh and W. I Thompson, a general discussion en sued and all delegates present were called upon to make suggestions.
