Plan For Contest
Complicated Situation Growing Over Split Be
tween Two Factions of Irish Sympathizers Is
Expected to be Disposed of Today May Reject
Resolution Urging Boycott of British Goods.
Denver, June 20 Faced by one of the most strenuous prob
lems in its history, the American Federation of Labor today
opened the second week of its annual convention.
The Irish question, the railroad problem, determination or
future relations with the European trade union movement, jur
isdictional disputes and many other matters were scheduled for
action.
Whether President Sampel Gomp
ers would be opposed for re-election
by John L. Lewis, President of the
United Mine Workers, had not been
definitely learned when the meeting
opened.
While President Gompers and ad
ministration forces have not taken
public recognition of the opposition,
they have mrtde plans to meet a con
test, and are awaiting the next move
of the mine workers leader.
The complicated situation growing
'over the split between the two fac
tions of Irish sympathizers is ex
pected to be disposed of today or to
morrow when the resolutions com
mittee brings in its report. The corn
mittee is understood to have decided
to reject the resolution urging boycott
of the British made goods and re
port favorably by the less drastic res
olution of sympathy for the Irish
cause and calling for recognition of
the "Irish Republic".
Supporters of the boycott resolu
tion who declare it the "official reso
lution of the Irish Republic" asserted
they will carry the fight to the floor
of the convention in an effort to
overthrow the committee's report if
it is unfavorable.
Th-e International Association of
Machinists has announced its de
termination to seek to have the con
vention repudiate the action -of the
executive council in severing relations
with the International Federation of
Trade T'nions. The association has
submitted a resolution directing the
Council to reafnliate the Federation
with the European labor movement.
The request of the United Brother
hood of Ma i n t e-n an c e of Wa y E m -ployes
and Railway Shop laborers
for reinstatement in the Federation
has the full support of all the rail
road organizations.
The Carpenters union has an
nounced it sintentlon of co-operating
nnunced its intention of co-operating
lighting Against the reinstatement.
The question of putting into effect
the Federation's railroad program
crilling for 'government control with
democratic operation," is expected to
be one of the major issues.
Mediation Is
Not Acceptable
London, June 20 The Near East
issue between Greece and Nationalist
TurkeyVnust be settled on the field of
dattle and not in the peace chambers,
according to a Smyrna telegram to
the Dally Telegraph today, quoting
!r. Stratos, an official of the Greejc
government. Dr. Stratos has just ar
rived - at Smyrna at the head of a
JreeH committee which Ss going to
the front. Dr. Stratos was quoted as
fraying:
'Mediation is not acceptable. We
cannot yield Thrace and Smyrna. The
only solution is by force of arms. A
military offensive is necessary to
brin-ff the Turks into a more reasona
ble state of mind."
Paris. June 20 Offensive opera- ;
lions aeainst the Turkish Nationalists
in Asia Minor are opposed by Great I
Britain, France and Italy, who have
despatched a note to the Greek gov
ernment, asking that King Constan
tine postpone his campaign against
the Turks and accept mediation
which may settle the Near East situ
ation. The note was sent to Smyrna,
where King Constantine and Premier
Oounaris are at present and it is be
lieved the Greek government will
make an immediate reply. Should
this rerply be favorable, overtures to
the Turkish Nationalists will quickly

BATTLE
OPENS IN
SENATE
Long Struggle Expected As
to Whether There Will Be
More or Less of Govern
ment In Business.
Washington, June 20- The Senate
plunged today into what threatens to
be a long, bitterly fought battle be
tween the advocates of government
regulation of "big business" and the
proponents of "less government in
business."
The immediate issue was the Fre
linghuysen seasonal coal rate bill.
But behind the opposition and sup
port centered upon it was the renew
ed warfare between the forces seek
ing to have the government direct
the production, transportation and
marketing of food, clothing, fuel and
those who contend that they should
be left to the law of sup-ply and de
mand, and of private business.
The Frelinghuysen bill, given the
right of way as the "unfinished busi
ness' 'of the Senate, was the vehicle
for fresh onslaughts upon the Esch
Cunimins transportation act by Sena
tor LaFollette, Rep., Wis., chairman
of the transportation sub-committee
of the Senatorial "Agricultural
bloc,' and other Senators bent upon
dragging the whole railroad problem
before the Senate again.
Senators identified with the "agri
cultural bloc" defended Secretary of
Commerce Hoover from attacks di
rected by interests opposed to the
Frelinghuysen bill. Hoover confer
red recently with the "agricultural
bloc."

coal situation, by initiating lower

High Honors
For Steamer
Riga, June 2. Honors snich as are
usually accorded to royalty or to offi
cials of high rank were given the
Dutch steamer Alexander Polden
when she arrived Gi Petrograd re
cently, says the newspaper Izvestia
of Moscow. The steamer brought the
first cargo of food that has entered
the harbor for about three, years.
With years of starvation at the back
of them the workers at the dock, by
day and mght shifts, unloaded 5,350
barrels of the ships cargo so swiftly
that the next day 20 carloads were dis
patched to Moscow while the lest left
for distribution in Petrograd. Only
the day before the ship arrived the
Izvestia wrote as follows about Pet
rograd :
"The fate of the city is so tragic
that no comparison can be found in
the world's history. The immense
mortality of Russia during the past
few years may be regarded as far
more tragic than the fall of Pompeii."
Now
Big Fight
That the Republicans of Bridge
port have come to a realization of the
fight that confronts them in the fall
primaries and election is fully evi
denced in the attempts they are di
recting to cause dissention and strife
in the Democratic ranks. The seriou3
internl factional difficulties of the
Republicans are made to appear even
more dangerous in view of the fact
that there is bound to be a marked
decrease in campaign funds, due to
several significant causes.
While discussing the situation this
morning, a prominent business man
who is close with the inner workings
of both parties verified reports of the
Republican plan to split the opposi
tion party.
"The very first move that I have
seen, and that tends to strengthen my
knowledge of the Republican strategy
to wreck the harmony of the Demo
crats, was the published story that
Chairman Cornell was to be ousted.
Anyone close enough with local poli
tics can readily see the improbability
of this, but that story and many
more that are yet to follow- will be
the means used to disrupt Democratic
strength. Such propaganda will fol
low right through the primaries to the
campaign in an attempt to divide the
party, and of course, such a split
would be equivalent to a success at
the polls.
"In addition, the Republicans, as in
other years will endeavor through the
Democrats they have. enrolled to
cause as much discussion as possible
in the aldermanic district fights, and

' Jack The Whipper"
Identified on the street this morning by a young woman
who claimed that he attacked her with a strap, late at night on
May 12, George Koozoogian, of 482 John street, was arrested by
Patrolman Charles H. Payden, on a charge of breach of the
peace investigation. With the arrest of Koozoogian, the police
believe that they have captured 'Mack-the-Whipper' who has
been terrorizing women in outlying sections of the city for the
past three months. The man is now being held at police head
quarters under $200 bonds, and will be arraigned in the City
court tomorrow.
The girl who identified Koozoogian
today told police officials that she has
met the man every morning for the
past week in the vicinity of Court
land street. She, in company with
another young woman, was attacked
by the "Whipper" on May 12, while
walking near the corner of Black
Rock ard Park avenues, shortly be
fore midnight. . Both girls were
struck on the ankles by a strap which
the man wielded on them, and at the
time of the assault obtained a fairly
accurate description of their assail
ant. The woman is positive that
Koozoogian is the man who attacked
her.
It was said oday, that other girls

victims of the "Whipper." will be

Predict Defeat For
Volstead Bill To
Make Beer Outlaw
Washington, June 20 Defeat of T
the Volstead bill to outlaw beer was
predicted today, as the row between
the drys began to take on more fire.
The prohibitionists were at logger
heads when "Andy Volsteady, au
thor of the new bill to make medi
cinal beer drinking a crime, went be
fore the House Rules committee for
a grilling. Their camp was split wide
open by the charges and counter
charges of bad faith passed between
Wayne B. Wheeler, general counsel
for the Anti-Saloon League, and Rev.
E. C. Dinwiddie, leaders of several
national temperance bodies.
The "Wets' wept no bitter tears to
day as Dinwiddie turned loose a ver
bal torrent of criticism against
Wheeler and accused him of prime
responsibility for an imminent flood of
beer and liquor such as the country
nas not Known tor muuuis uii;e
the "dry" era began. Dinwiddie was
vehement over Wheeler's accusation
that he was "aiding and abetting the
wets.' Dinwiddie said of all persons
in the land Wheeler is to be chiefly
")lamed for the refusal of Congress to
make the beer bill a means of par
alyzing legitimate industrial users of
alcohol. "There will be a deluge of
beer and other liquors and Wheeler is
to be blamed for his obstinate atti
tude," said Dinwiddie. ' He alone is
responsible if delay results from his
notion that anti-beer legislation must
be hooked up with a lot of other con
troversial matters, I am deeply sorry
that such a situation has arisen. But
the Congress cannot be expected to
lake action which clearly will exter
minate legitimate interests? The
guise of indicting beer."
The row between the Drys means
inevitably that the House and Senate
will refuse to set aside its normal pro
cedure to furnish a vehicle to "rail
road" the bill through.

Yale Commencement In
Full Swing With Induction Of
Dr. Angell As Concluding Feature
New Haven, June 2 0 With cold
clear weather on tap and a host of
grads blossoming out in their fantas
tic commencement costumes, Tales
commencement inaugural, which is
to culminate Wednesday in the induc
tion into office of Dr. James Row
land Angell, fourteenth Yale presi
dent, suceeding Dr. Arthur T. Hadley,
who retires after 22 years, was in full
swing today.
The College and Sheffield Scientific
school class day exercises, the meeting
of the Alumni Advisory board, the an
nual luncheon of the Tale law school
alumni, meeting of the corporation,
glee and banjo club concert and sen
ior promenade constituted the day's
program of events, continuing from
early forenoon until late into the
night.
The city was gaily decorated in
on which was inscribed a welcome
to
President Angell. Pictures of the
new and retiring presidents were
conspicuous in the decorations about
the city.
The Sheffield Scientific School class
day exercises were held on Vander
bilt square this forenoon followed by
the planting of the class ivy, while

closed the intention of Senator King
to order an investigation into the sub
marine and naval aircraft situation
by the Naval Affairs committee.
Senator King claims that out of the
1 65 suhr. now in commision only one
is available for effective use in case
rvent of war.
"That is hardly true." replied Mr.
Lake this morning when informed by
a Times reported of the Senator's
charges. "Why just at this minute
there is a flotilla on 1he way to the
Philippine Islands."
Four of the Lake typo of boats are
in the flotilla, including the S-14.
S-15, S-16 and S-17 which were
launched at the local yards several
months ago.
Replying to the further charge that
this government's subs could not
compare at all with the German
boats, Mr. Lake said:
"At the end of the war, the Ger
man boats were nowhere near as good
as ours. Th-oy were entirely too
complicated and were not as effec
tive. "With England and Japan, how
ever, it is different as they are sur
passing us both in building and de
veloping submarines. Their vessels
are more 'powerful than ours, and
more uptodate.
"Our boats are not as good as
theirs because they are not as late as
theirs. We have had no appropria
tion for submarines since 1916, and
even that was side-tracked for battle
ships. "As a result we are fully five years
behind in the development of subs.
But we could excel, and build the
finest and most effective if Congress
would only allow us the money.
"The government has been very
parsiminous in regards to submarines,
and if Congress would only appro
priate the money we could turn out
the best submersibles in the world.
LOCAL POLICE
FOLLOW UP
LATEST CLUE
Local detectives will probably go
to Stamford this afternoon for the
purpose of questioning Harry O'Neill,
of 75 G State street, this city, who was
arrested in Stamford this morning on
a charge of carrying concealed
weapons.
It is not thought probable that
O'Neill is connected in any way with
the shooting of Patrolman Thomas A.
Tierney, Wednesday night, but the
police are taking no chances of letting
any prisoner got away without an in
vestigation. At the time of his ar
rest, O'Neill had a revolver with one
shell exploded and a camera in his
possession.
Patrolman Tierney 's condition re
mains unchanged, according to a re
port made at noon today at St. Vin
cent's hospital. The wounded man
has put up a wonderful fight for life
during the past four days, and it is
said that he now has a chance for
recovery. The blood transfusion
which was thought necessary Satur
