The letter of Senator DaTid WalBh , of Massachusetts, Democrat, . has kid the effect of prompting a urch for precedents.

The only ques tion is as to the power of the fed eral government to cope with the Batter. irrespective of the decision raised by the administration, enough has happened already to in tficata that no more embarrassing question has been injected in American politics than that of the Ku Klux Klan.

Broadly speaking, the Democratic larty -is picked to suffer most from the issue.

Fresh from a night's rest in the Potter Palmer mansion on Lake Shore drive. wnere, tne roar of Lake Michigan must have tinged hi dreams with visions of his cottage by the sea in r ranee, ueorges uiemenceau was np before dawn today. The aged war premier confided that his Chicago address, scheduled for 4 o'clock this afternoon, in the Auditorium, was to be a "message, of peace." - It was said it would be, a wholly different address from those deliv ered in New York . and Boston, which roused Democratic and Re publican senators alike to attack him, and drew a formal statement from the British embassy at Wash ington. But whether it would be more pacific, nobody but the Tiger could say and he wouldn't say. to nis advisors in New York, and; who have wlrea bim urEng that he tone that he did not come to America to be "expedient," and that he must be left to deliver his message in his own way.

The "Tiger" planned to spend most of today in seclusion. Today's address probably will reach more listeners . than Clemenceau has spoken to since he arrived.

FRAME fj AY SEIZE RUIIfl COALMINES Drastic Action Against Germany Hinges on Pay ment of War Debt, Paris, Nov. 28. (By the Associ ated Press.) A plan for direct ac tion by France as a solution of the reparations question 'was submit ted today to the full cabinet, meet- inr in the Elysee Palace, with President Millerand presiding. The plan provides for seizure oi the state coal mines and collection of the export taxes in the Ruhr dis trict. together with absolute con trol of that section of the Rhine- land now occupied by the French military. Members of the cabinet, after the meeting, refused to discuss the ac tion taken, but it is generally be lieved the plan was approved with out opposition as it was drawn up yesterday at a meeting in which the foremost military and civil au thorities participated, including President Millerand, Premier Poin care. Marshal Foch and the minis ters of finance, war and liberated regions. This program would be applic able only after Jan. 15, for Ger many has a moratorium until the' end of December, and the first pay ment would be due in the middle of January. . Germany's ' failure to meet this payment would, the French believe, automatically give them the right Premier Poincare s purpose . in his appeal, to the nation last Sun day to submerge party feelings in "sacred union" in support of the government, now is seen. . This - drastic program of action hinges upon the outcome of the Brussels conference, but there is such doubt that that meeting would reach a satisfactory decision on it wise to prepare for an eventual ity.

Consolidated Press Correspondent. (Copyright, 1922, by The Argus.) ' Chicago. Nov. 28. An artist must be true to art but commercial America will not permit him to be o. That is the view of no less an authority than Harry Lachman. noiea landscape artist. A chevalier of the legion of honor and accepted as one of the greatest artists of modern times, he said today that be plans to abandon painting for a brief period. The reason is lack of funds he very frankly admits. His photogra phy will be limited to special sit tings and he will pose his subjects personally. "Why," he was asked today when be told of his plans and also of having three of his canvases hung in the Luxembourg, "should a fa mous painter open a photo studio?" The tall, serious, black-haired in dividual, who exactly a year ago stirred all artistic America to its foundations by charging that most American painters produced "mail order stuff", that was "best fitted for, a well appointed bathroom," very frankly gave his reasons. "To follow his desire to improve himself; to reach any heights at all in painting," he said, "an artist must be unhampered in his endeav vxv ivt ca agw muuius iu New York as a photographer will ors, lay work for a few months in xurmsn mo tne meager iunds I re quire for a year of painting - in Europe. The public taste here, as well as abroad, is quite generally stereotyped. If a painter attempts something different, something out of the ordinary, his work is ignor ed. Hence he either starves, makes his living -another way or paints the 'pot boilers', which come back like ghosta later to trouble his career. . "I plan something different and intend to finance it myself. This is not a new idea -entirely. Every painter, at some time in his career. pernaps by chance, produces a sal able picture. That is, he paints sometning mat by very -virtue of its subject has a wide appeal. Imme diately dealers demand that he pro duce others of a similar character. The artist needs ready money and he does so. Very soon he gets a reputation as a painter of 'waves', or 'sows', or 'sheep" or something of the sort The public will not buy any .other subject by him. ; He becomes an 'automat' and his artis tic progress is arrested. This. too. in the face of the fact that in most cases the work he has been pro ducing is far from beinr of the best he can do along different lines. He knows this full well and he tries the other things bat the pictures win not sell. Corot's Straggles. "Corot, when1 a struggling youth, painted a picture m silver gray tones. It i was immensely popular and for 25 years the studios de manded that he paint silver gray. finally ho rebelled and painted wnai we now know as his 'Italian Period' productions.

Monet painted 100 of them before he gave up in disgust There's an American painter who has-produced piles of cord wood for years, another who has done seashores with naked little girls and still a third who for 12 years has done 'desert purples'. These air can produce much better work but the dealers and the buying pub lie won't let them.

Despite the fact that Professor Tiernan announced last night that the reconciliation with his- first wife was moving along satisfactor ily, a dispatch from Marshalltown, Iowa, quoted Mrs. Blanche Brim- mer-Tiernan, the professor's "bride or a day," as saying, she was the latter's wife and was going to live with him.

Mrs. Charles H. Hawn, mother of Mrs. Blanche Hawn-Rash-Brimmer, back here today from ; Marshalltown, Iowa, where the two spent yester day investigating the marital status of Mrs. Brimmer, announced that her daughter legally was entitled to wed Professor John P. Tiernan in their Crown Point, Ind, cere mony last Saturday. It is "Mrs. Blanche Tiernan" def initely, said Mrs. Hawn, and Pro fessor Tiernan and Mrs. Augusta Tiernan must settle their legal Status in Indiana. "My daughter never intended to marry Tiernan when she went to Chicago last Thursday night," the mother said. "Tiernan wired her to come to Chicago that day, and she went They had expected to be married at Christmas time, but Tiernan, I believe, got excited and the hasty marriage at Crown Point was the result "My daughter never has been a very calm thinker, acting fre quently on the impulse of the mo ment, and this, together with Tier nan's insistence,- no doubt easily won her over.' "She did nothing wrong. She is the only legal wife of Tiernan. as the court records in Marshalltown have cleared her divorce record, which Mr. Tiernan -seems to worry about." The daughter's main idea now is to prove to- the world that she is the legal wife of Professor Tier nan, Mrs. Hawn said. Looking to ward that end, two motion picture offers have been refused, she said.
