VOL. XXIV. NO. 271. BA1UIE, VERMONT, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1921. PRICE, TWO CENTS. BARRE DAILY IMES RUSSIANS ASK RECOGNITION Of New Government Formed to Combat Bol shevik Principles COMPEL INSURANCE TO DISCHARGED MEN UNITED STATES WILL BE IMPORTANT I Constituent Assembly Has Just Been Created ; in Paris Tarts, Feb. 1 (By the Associated Press). Formal application is about to be made to the governments of Great Britain, France and the United State to recognize the Russian constituent astfinbly as the rightful existing gov ernment. The assembly has just been elected at a meeting here of all the Russian elements opposed to holshe vism with the purpose of sinking all differences of opinion and presenting a united front against bolshevism. The precedent invoked will be the recognition by the allies of the Serbian government set up on the Island of Corfu during the war while Serbia was completely occupied by the central ipow crs. Thirty-thre of the members of the assembly created here were elected in Russia in the later part of 1917 by popular vote. These elections were held under bolshevik rule and the bolshe .viki failed to obtain more than 40 per cent of the seats. Lenine, the soviet premier, dissolved the assembly on Jan. 18, 1018, when his followers were placed in the minority. A majority of the members left Russia but many went to jail. Those who escaped re-grouped in Paris and formed the assembly which adopted resolutions containing these provisions: y" 1. A declaration of the principle of the liberty of the Russian people in opiyisition to bolshevik rule. 2. Refusal to recognize anv and all Bill of That Nature Has Been Intro duced in the Wisconsin Legislature, Madison, Wis., Feb. 1. A bill to compel employers to pay unemploy ment insurance benefits to their work ers when unemployed was introduced in the legislature to-day. The measure was prepared by Pro fe&aor John R. Commons of the depart ment of economics at the University of Wisconsin. It would require employers to form mutual insurance companies and ap ply benefits to the workers they dis charge at the rate of $1.50 a day for adult men and women and 75 cents a day for boys and girls between the ages of Iti and In years. The unemployed, provided they had worked at least 20 weeks, would be entitled to benefits for a maximum pe riod of 13 week? on the bais of one week for evert' four weeks of work. Workers idle as a result of a strike or lockout nre not entitled to benefits and farm laborers al.-o are exempt. Explaining his bill. Professor Com mons recently told the local Rotary club that fear of unemployment was the moving impulse behind most labor difficulties. Remove that tear, he said and labor difficulties would be reduced and production speeded up. W hue Ins bill is designed primarily as an insurance measure, its real ef fect, he declared, would be to ..force employers to admit their work so as to eliminate slack periods and depres sion in order to escape the burden of insurance benefits. GOV. PARKHURST'S BODY TO LIE IN STATE treaties, including commercial agree ments, made with the bolsheviki as one of the parties. (This would entail repudiation of the agreement between the bolsheviki and Washington B. V'an derlip for a concession in Siberia). 3. The assembly is against armed in tervention in Russian affairs. It fa vors commercial relations between in dividual in Russia and oilier coun tries, hut not with the bolshevik gov ernment, and also favors lifting the blockade. 4. The assembly is apaiust dismem berment of Russia and the secession from Russia of any of its farmer prov inces In connection with the fourth clause the assembly inserted an expression of "profound gratitude" to the United States and referred especially to the note of Secretary of State Colby on AifV. 10. IAl'O, in which he said the 1 luted States government was opposed to any dismemberment of Rus-ia. A permanent executive committee, including M. Kerensky, was appointed to draw up resolutions to present to the allied governments. On this com mittee are members of the socialist, cossnck and free Russian parties who claim that not only were they elected by the vote of the Russian people in Russia, but ajso that tliev represent from l,."(0,WHt to 2,000,0(10 Russian exiles and refugees.

I.-The Fordney emergency tariff bill, awaiting action in the Senate, has begun to re semble a wooden ship adrift in a baracle-infested sea. Every day sees encumbrances added to it both by its opponents and its friends, and the lat ter to-day began to see visions of it sinking beneath the waves from the weight imposed. The latest acquisitions to the bill in the form of amendments appeared to day in proposals to place an import duty on sunflower vseed and on nails. Senator Spencer, Republican, Missouri, sponsored the sunflower seed tariff and Senator Moses, Republican, of New Hampshire presented the amendment which would protect America's nail industry. The bill as it left the House provid ed fop duties on about a score of prod uct. Even Senate clerks were unable to estimate the number of commodities that would be subject to additional tar iff levies should all the amendments of fered, since the measure reached that body be adopted. In the meantime the bill faced anoth er round of debate to-day, some sena tors said probably its last full day, for to-morrow the Senate will be called upon to vote on the petition for cloture or limitation of debate, presented yes terday by Chairman Penrose of the finance committee after unanimous consent for a vote on the bill Feb. 15 had been met with objection. To close down partially on debate and proceed to a vote on the bill will require ap proval of two-thirds of the Senate and neither Republicans nor Democrats saw any chance of the petition muster ing that much support, I?

According to the provisions of this measure, the sal ary of the county clerk of Washington county would lie increased from $,"tM) to $3,200. Outside of the Senate's action on the constitutional amendments, there was little outside routine in either house this morning. Both houses passed a number of bills, the Senate finishing up action on nine, while the House pns-eil four bills and adopted one joint reso lution in concurrence. There were 1 4 new bills introduced -in the House. Short Discussion. Thrre was a short discus-ion over H. 15. relating to the ownership and daiosition of property 'of certain Con gregational churches. After Mr. Peake of Bristol had asked to amend the bill so that the Congregational church of Bristol would be excepted from rts pro visions, Mr. Webster of Harlland want ed to know w hy some churches seemed to want to be excluded from the meas ure. He seemed to think that there mut be some catch in it somewhere, j Mr. Field of Montpelier explained the! lull ana why some churches hart liecn excepted, and said that the bill gives to tin Congregational society of the state the same powers which has al ready been granted to the Baptist so ciety. 'I here were evidently uftTrls who were afraid of the measure., for the vote on it was so close that the speak er called for a rising vote, and the bill was passed bv a vote of ,HS to 51. . Ariot her standing vote was required on the joint resolution relating to in spection of dairy barns. Some of the farmers had evidently decided that they did not want this resolution, which had already passed the Senate, but aft er Mr. Newland of Morristown bad trenuously defended the measure (be erations would be about 40 per cent of capacityi with prospects of increased activity if conditions warrant. Of the 55 independent blast furnaces from which reports were received by steel authorities here, 21 were in op eration while six mills increased oper ations. Some of the business which brought about resumption was for the export trade, one order being for 000.000 for Steel towers to be used in a wireless installation at Osaka. Japan. ,F"rom points outside the immediate Pittsburgh district, came similar re potts of increased operation. Many plants resumed operations un der changed labor conditions. In -ome instances, wage reductions were accept ed by the men, and in others the work ing time was reduced so as to bring operations within the limit of the eight -hour day and thus avoid time and a half pay for overtime. Tuberculin-free milk will be deliv ered within the city of Barre on and after to-day, Feb. 1, at 13 cents a quart. This was decided upon last ev ening at a joint meeting of producers and dealers. The new price is the same as was in force in the summer months of 1919 before the city ordinance re quiring the testing of cattle went into effect. Milk will now lie sold to dealers at nine cents a quart, a reduction of l', cents, while the retailer will get 1.1 cents, a drop of two cents. Barre will now be getting milk cheaper than in many other places and while the pro ducers feel that thev are entitled to a premium on a product that surpasses that of practically all other communi-' ties in the state for purity there have been so many calls for a lower price that the decision was reached at the meeting last night.
