International Labor Legisla
tion Planned by British
Would Fix Conditions
Paris, Feb. 13.—The agreement
by the commission on international
labor legislation of the Peace Oonf
ference yesterday to accept Article
IV of the British draft of measures
-to settle the future status of inter
national labor marks the surmount
ing of an obstacle which was ex
pected to provoke a bitter contest,
since it is the most radical project
organized labor is seeking to graft
upon the constitution of the Society
of Nations. This article provides
that at the proposed international
labor conference the representatives
of the governments, the employers
and working people shdn be en
titled to speak and vote independ
ently without regard to the views
expressed by the other represenfa-
Uves of their nation and to have
power to draw up conventions bind
ing on the nations represented.
The rapid progress made on the
balance of the British draft, into
which will be Incorporated certain
features of the French labor plan,
appears to warrant the belief that
the essential aims of the delegates
of both nations will be accepted in
their enUrety by the commission, al
though final action by the Peace
Conference is predicted.
The British draft covers a wide
field, including the following pro
"Uniformity of the rights of work

commissioners, both because of its
need and the desire of the commis
sioners to co-operate as much as
possible in the government wishes,
the duty of the officials is clear, 'City
Commissioner E. Z. Gross declares.
The five commissioners are Very
much in favor of the erection of the
building to aid in keeping abreast
with the onward march of the city.
Public sentiment In favor of the
erection of the building is very
great. Commissioner Gross says, and
he believes that favorable action will
be taken as soon as the necessary
legislation is provided. Until then,
however, both city and county com
missioners must wait, he maintains.
Everything now looks favorable for
the reception of the bill, but oppo
sition may develop from some un
expected source, he declares.
"Mot Safe"
Concerning the proposition of go
ing ahead and providing plans for
the (erection of the building. Mayor
Daniel L. Keister said it would not
be the safe thing to do. The commis
sioners might get into some difficul
ties for which they would be held
personally responsible, he said.
Full power for the commissioners
to proceed with their plans is pro-,
vided in a measure which has been
introduced into the Legislature by
Senator Schantz, of Lehigh county.
Mayor Keister said. The people of
that legislator's territory are strong
ly iir favor of such a plan as is be
ing advocated here and are pushing
it actively. There seems to be little
doubt that it will pass. Mayor Keis
ter believes.
Both the city and county commis
sioners are very much in fabor of
the plan, he says, believing that
favorable action to provide for the
proposed structure will be taken
s ~ ort,J ' a fter the legislation becomes
Commissioner Charles W. Burt
nett declares that the city commis
sioners are very much in favor of
the proposition and are doing all
they can to push the fight. But until
the necessary legislation is enacted,
the commissioners absolutely can
not do anything, he declares.
In State or Rest
The proposition is" now in state of
County Commissioner Charles
C. Cumbler said to-day .No action
Is legally possible, lie said, and none
will be attempted, he declared until
the Legislature gives its sanction to
the erection of buildings by a city
and county, jointly, through legisla
tive enactment, he declares. Senti-
F**"* for the construction of the
building is quite strong, Mr. Cumb
ler declared, but he is strong in his
assertion that officials* hands are
d under present conditions.
Road and bridge construction
work by the county promises to be
quite extensive this year. Plans have
not been fully developed and are not
nrUn? £ t0 be made public. At
present the commissioners are en
" l . h e revision of assessments
throughout the county, and it is ex
pected that this will occupy their
attention for the next month. Mr'
Cumbler says. But after the revi
sion has been made work in putting
such plans into operation will be
started in earnest, he promises.
„nlv i, P ?^ ram of the state is of
unexcelled breadth in the history of
the commonwealth. Its road "and
bridge work is quite wide in scope,
but the plans for the State street
bridge across the Pennsylvania rail
road tracks and Capitol Park Ex
tension arrangements are what in
terest Harrisburg people chieflv. Era
ployment to hundreds of discharged
soldiers and sailors will be furnish
ed by them, and the labor situation
created by the stoppage or slowing
up of many industries as a result of
the cessation of hostilities will be
considerably alleviated.
Work l ; ndor Way
Work on the Capitol Park Exten
sion is even now under way and
plans for the erection of the State
street bridge are progressing with
pleasing rapidity. The Capitol Park
improvement plans provide among
other things for the widening of
Third street from Walnut to North
street through the tearing away of
the pavement adjoining the park and
to erect a suitable boulevard. Pres
ent plans provide for similar treat
ment, although probably not on as
extensive a scale, for Walnut and
North streets. The -State and city are
interested jointly in this work.
Office buildings are included too
in the construction program. At
least one such building is being
planned for eretjlion before fall and
others may be started to provide
suitable facilities for all depart
Probably 'the most outstanding
feature in the building program of
private interests is that of the Phil
adelphia and Heading railroad bridge
across the Susquehanna river. The
plan has received thorough consid
eration and plans have been care
fully formulated for the enormous
viaduct to care for the transporta
tion company's greatly increased
Definite announcement has not
[ yet been made as to the exact time
when the plans will get under way,
although it is generally believed that
spring and summer will see opera
tions under way.This work has been
delayed this long largely because
of war conditions.

That $74,500 is available for
municipal improvements is a state
ment for'which Mayor Darnel L.
i Keister is responsible. These im
| movements are expected to be start
! d as soon as possible and men dis
| charged from the military service
will be given the preference, Mayor
1 Belster adds.
Of the total sum available for this
class of improvements, $22,500 has
been set aside for the improvements
to Third, Walnut and North streets
in conformity with the state's plan'
An additional $45,000 is designated
for the repairing of asphalt and
other streets of the city, and City
Commissioner Lynch promises that
work will be started as soon as the
weather opens. Improvement of the
lines of the water department, chief
ly in the Fourteenth ward, will be
started as soon as spring really ap
pears. For this work, $15,000 has
been appropriated.

Lloyd George Says America
Would Not Aid British
and French
London, Feb. 13.—Premier Lloyd
George again speaking on thf gen
eral peace situation said he was op
posed to intervention in Russia be
cause the work would fall upon the
British and the French. America,
he said, would send neither men,
money nor material.
He was unable to disclose the fig
ures that Intervention would in
volve, but after seeing them, no
sane man, he declared, would ad
vise the allies, after five years of
war, to undertake the enterprise.
The premier declared that there
had never been any proposal ad
vanced at the Peace Conference to
recognize the* Bolshevists. He ad
mitted that the horrors of Bolshe
vism were so great that there was
a sense of disgust when they came
to deal with the leaders, but was
useless to blind their eyes to the real
facts. /Russia represented in area
over half of Europe, and nearly half
of Asia and, he pointed out, if peace
were not made, the whole of this
immense territory would b seething
in anarchy, disorder and bloodshed;
there would be no peace in the
world. -

Palmer on Inside Track
For Attorney General
The Philadelphia # lnquirer m a
Washington dispatch to-day says:
"One of the first acts of President
Wilson upon his, return will be the
appointment of an Attorney General
to succeed the present incumbent,
Thomas W. Gregory, whose resig
nation becomes effective March 4.
Present indications run strongly
to the appointment to the Cabinet
vacancy of A. Mitchell Palmer, of
Pennsylvania, now holding the of
fice of Custodian of Alien Property.
While a possible appointee to the
Attorney Generalship is G. Carroll
Todd, now Assistant Attorney Gen
eral, the general belief is that Mr,
Palmer will get the office. Todd
will have the support of the retir
ing chief of his department, but per
sonal considerations point in favor
of Mr. Palmer for recognition by the
President. Political geographical
considerations are not without
their importance, as Assistant At

fill the coming vacancy, it would
leave a gap in the Democratic Na

bility of the appointment of Joseph
Guffey, of Pittsburgh, to the place.
With the chairmanship of the
Democratic National Committee
made vacant by the resignation of
Vance McCormick, now in Europe

further possibility of the vacancy be
ing eventually filled by Guftey."
