British Labor Against "Direct A ction" A specially cailtd Trade Union Conuress which has been sitting in London has finally and formally de clared its opposition to "direct act ion" to secure nationalization. The particular point under diseusion was whether direct action in a general strike should be taken to compel the Government to nationalize the coal mines. A card vote of delegates to the congress showed a majority against direct action of 2,820,000 votes. Although the congress was con cerned only with the nationalization of the mines, it is believed that this vote will govern the future policy of labor towards other industrial prob lems. After the miner's votes were deducted from the total vote on di rect action it was found that the rest of the trade union movement gave 'direct action little support.

The Conference of the Allied Am bassadors at Paris has decided to send the German Government a very firmly worded note demanding im mediate application of the penalties promised for the outrages suffered by officers of the Interallied Commis sion to the Baltic States during the German evacuation of this region, which has been delayed up to the present time. At the demand of the British del egation the conference has decided to demand again that the Govern ment at Belgrade order the evacua tion of Radkersburg, thirty-seven miles southeast of Graniz, which is .still occupied by the Jugoslavs, con trary to the decisions of the Confer- pre- right to visit fortresses which are not to be destroyed. The Control Com missions were supposed to have the right to visit all German fortified places. Plac( Kosponsibilil y for Snarl on America Curson, Great Drit: retarv, in a re cent Turkish vin's For jtarement House of Lords, blames the United S ; for present trouble- somt Tl folio "1 conditions in the Near Fast, i statement reads in part as "The difficulties with whicn we are conf.cnted remit from the fact that the treaty with Turkey ought to haw been taken up a year ago if it had been possible. The circumstances which prevented that or tvndered it difficult at Paris arc well known and the House knows that 'the additional delay that ensued later in the year was due to no action or inaction on our part, but sorely to our wailing for the United States of America. "That was the necesary cause of the delay. It was in Its consequen ces exceedingly regrettable. "I do not attribute I he blame to anybody, but it is a fa"t, which he who runs can read, ti nt the situation that had been growing up i;; due to the fact that twelve months haw been lost in dealing with this ques tion." Rcrolntlona Make Things Move Fast in Germany. A counter-revolution in Germany, restored to authority Frederics Ebert, socialist president, whose government had been overthrown less than three days before by the Fatherland Party under the leader ship of Woolfgang Kapp, who pro claimed himself chancellor and as sumed rupreme direction of affairs. It was a kind of "presto-chango" cond'tion that prevailed, the revolu tion making things move fast. Kapp's effort to overthrow the Ebert government is regarded as monarchists and supported by Hldenburg, Jagow, Falkenhausen and others who would restore the Kaiser to power. Ebert called on the people to rise in general strike to prevent the return of YVilhelm IT and It seems to have been through this means that he saved the day for himself. Reports are that there was no bloodshed and that negotiations are now under way looking to an anica now under way looking to an arnica Later reports are to the effect there will be no compromise and that two governments, one under Kapp and with paph nthnp unH It rnmiinc tn I seen what the final outcome will be.
