LA FOLLETTE FOR THIRD PARTY.
Tells Gov.-elect Hunt of Arizona, Pres
ent Parties May Go.
Phoenix. Ariz., Nov. 27, Senator La
Follette, Republican, Wisconsin, was
quoted to-day by George W, Hunt, governor-elect
of Arizona, as having told
him that he could just as soon see both
the Republican and democratic parties
scrapped.
Mr. Hunt, telling of a long distance
telephone conversation with the senator
from Washington, quoted LaFollette as
saying that the people had spoken
twice to the majority parties and if
they Jiad to speak again it would be to
welcome a third party.
Mr. Hunt may send a representative
to the meeting of Progressive leaders
called by Senator LaFollette at Wash
ington for December 2, but will not at
tend himself.
Senator LaFollette, according to Mr
Hunt, pointed out that Tadieal or
progressive candidate in eight states
had been victorious in the recent elec
tions - through close "combination of
organized farmers and union workers,
and that m analysis of the returns
would show Hunt's election by such a
combination. Mr. Hunt said this was
the reason for inviting him to the con
ference. ; -
"The iron is hot, it is time to strike,"
was one of Senator LaFollette'a ex
pressions, Mr. Hunt declared. "The
psychology of the dissatisfied masses,
dissatifled" becaue they are not getting
living .wages, because they are not
getting sufficient return for their crops
to pay taxes' and buy groceries, is to the
back 'of this political upheaval" Hunt
asserted the .Wisconsin senator told
him over the telephone.
"I feel confidenfthat Senator La
Follette has the best interests of the
people at heart 'in hiseflorts to esta
blish trig "bloc" Mr. nunt said, "But I
cannot get away from my ideas that
the place to make this fight for the peo
ple is in he Democratic party." -
Mr. Hunt' said Senator LaFollette
outlined in detail the plans being for
mulated for a governing bloc in both
the Senate and House. '
FIRST CHANCE FOR AMERICANS.
When the Mosul Oil Fields Are Opened
TJp, Says Turk.
Lausanne. Nov. 27. (By the Asso
ciated Press), The Mosul oil fields are
a part of Turkey proper and when the
time comes to make oil concession to
foreigners in that rich districts,
Americans will get the first chance, Dr.
Riza Nur Bey. one of the TurkixJi
plenipotentiaries at the conference here
declared to the correspondent to-day.
"We are reading a great deal these
day about secret agreements outside
the conference concerning .Mosul, a'l ot
which proceeds from the theory that
Mosul is British" the Turkish dele
gate said. "The contrary is true. Mosul
has been ruled by Uie uttoman dynasty
for exactly 1,100 years and we intend
to assert vigorously our claim to
sovereignty over Mosul when the
frontier question is discussed m vne
conference. '
"British troops occupied thie terri
tory after the armistice, not before and
it is not a part of Mesopotamia.
"We need American capital in
Turkey and prefer to deal with Ameri
cans because they work their conces
sions on a strictly business basis, with
out seeking to advance the interests
of their government by, mixing in
politic ana louowing jhjiwj iu
'economic penetration harmful to the
Turkish state.
"Let Americans keep their hands oft

Riza Nur was distreswd over what
he termed American inability to under
stand the honorable and constructive
aims of the new Turkey -
"We are trvinir to modernize J nr
key" he said, "and we want America's
assistance. We believe in your dism
terestedness." .

The lockout, 'officials agreed, would
affect about 60,000 workers in the
building trades in" the metropolitan

idle 65,000 more within a month. .
The lockout was caused, Mr. Nor

"It cannot be done. Every practical
