Senators Who Believe Rejec
tion Only Course Get
Washington. Aug. 23. —-• Senators
who believe the rejection of the
Treaty of Peace now before the Sen
ate is the only method of Insuring
the safety of the United States in
future held a conference yesterday
in the office of Senator Knox (Pa.).
Those present by no means repre
sented the entire number who take
this position, but represent the most
irreconcilable opposition to the pact.
Although the conference was hur
riedly and quite informally got to
gether, it took up seriously the ques
tion of measures by which to organ
ize the growing opposition of the
country and make possible the elim
ination Of the United States from all
connection with world settlement as
now proposesd. Two parts are in
cluded in the program:
1. To insure assurances that thq
Senate *ciLl not permit the Treaty to
come to a vote on any vital matters
for a few weeks while the Senators
can absent themselves from Wash
ington and make a campaign to in
form the country.
2. Then to arrange speaking
tours for several Senators that will
cover the country and carry to it
an accurate understanding of the
Treaty as it is now understood by
the Senators who have been studying
it for months.
The conference was in a way the
reply of the opposition to the Admin
istration move, through the White
House conference and the Pittman
resolution, to have the Treaty rushed
to ratification without even reserva
tions, but merely with an interpreta
tive resolution outside the ratification
measure. The instant collapse of that
program on the very day it was pre
sented to the Senate was followed
by its repudiation to-day by the
White House.
Cheering to Opposition
This was all very cheering to the
"shock troops" of the unrelenting
opposition, and their plans for a re
jection fight were taken in hand at

way for a camp at least double the size next year. The boys were given the outing of ten days at a cost to them of two dollars per boy. When asked
for suggestions for next year's camp, the boys almost shouted the reply, "We want to stay longer!" /
Workers Invited by
Presbyterians to Join
Labor Sunday Services
New York, Aug. 23. —Labor was
invited to-day by the Presbyterian
Church to join in observance of Au
•gust 31 as "Labor Sunday."
In an appeal for establishment of
a "Christian brotherhood through
industrial democracy," Dr. William
Hiram Folkes. general secretary of
the New Era Movement of the Pres
byterian Church, said:
"The Church stands at the fork
of the roads pointing the way. On
the one hand is selfish, sordid,
satanic Bolshevism, caring neither
for Justice nor brotherhood —the way
of violence, greed and shameless
immoralities. On the other is Chris
tian democracy."
Rumania's Signature
Depends on Modifications
By Associated Press.
Paris, Thursday, Aug. 21.—Ru
mania's signature to the Treaty of
Peace with Austria still depends
upon modifications of the clause re
lating to guarantees to minorities,
according to information from au
thoritative Rumanian sources.
(Paris advices Friday said the Aus
trian treaty had been completed and
will be transmitted to the Austrians
The Rumanians point out that by
royal decrees which will be ap
proved by the new Chamber of
Deputies to be elected in September,
minorities, not only in the new tei
ritory attached to Rumania, but in
the old kingdom, have been more
amply protected than the Peace
Treaty provides. Rumania, however,
does not desire to have forced upon
her, it is said, provisions which it
is feared would be interpreted by
the minorities as giving them really
the upper hand.

cording to Secretary Baker, and this
telegram later was "killed" by the
commander of the Southern De
partment with the information that
this story and a complete report on
operations to date were being sent
by mail to Washington.
Additional cavalry troops were
ordered to leave for the river last
night It is possible they will join
the punitive expedition to relieve
part of the troops now operating in
Mexico. The number and destina
tion of the troops were withheld at
military headquarters.
Wild rumors that the bandit Ren
teria's headquarters had been lo
cated and that bombing planes had
gone there to bomb the rendezvous
were in circulation. They were
branded as ridiculous at headquar
ters. '
That an effort would be made later
to pay the remaining $6,500 ransom
to Jesus Renteria or his family was
indicated by General Dickman. He
took the position at the time Cap
tain Matlack rescued Lieutenant
Davis without payment of the total
ransom, that the United States gov
ernment is too great to go back on
its word, even to bandits. He stat
ed to-day that he feared Captain
Matlack's action would result in
treachery on the part of Mexicans

Aerial Bombs May
Be Used to Wipe Out
Mexican Bandit Bands
Marfa, Tex., Aug. 33. Two
forces of troops. Carranza Federals
operating far to the south and
American cavalry farther north, to
day are scouring the Conchos river
region of Mexico In an endeavor to
clear that section of bandits who pre
cipitated an expedition into the sou
thern republic by capturing and
holding for ransom two American
Army aviators. Five bandits here
have been killed so far.
Major General Joseph T. Dick,
man, commandfer of the Southern
Department, left last night for San
Antonio after familiarizing himself
with the details of the punitive ex
pedition. Before leaving the Gen
eral said an effort would be made
to pay the bandits the $6,500 re
maining of the Yansom money for
the aviators.
The possibility of using bombs In
wiping out the bandits developed
with the arrival of aerial bombe for
experimental purposes and an an
nouncement that they might be used
If a bandit force should be found
in any considerable numbers.
Reports that the expeditionary
forces would be withdrawn at an
early date had no foundation, Gen
eral Dickman saying the expedition
would remain In Mexico as long as
they were following a hot trail.
There was no explanation ot the
rescinding of the order for addi
tional troops to support the puni
tive expedition.
Believes Reciprocal
" Border Guard Service
Should Be Established
Mexico City, Friday. Aug. 23.
Luis Cabrera, secretary of the treas
ury stated in an Interview that the
Mexican and American Governmenta
should sign an agreement for a re
ciprocal border guard service as a
step toward preventing clashes be
tween the two countries.
Ignacto Bonillas, Mexican ambas
sador at Washington, according to
Senor Cabrera, would be "eminently
fitted" for conducting negotiations
with this object. The difficulties
which prevented the adoption of
such an agreement, at Atlantic City
in 1916 were due to the fact that
the American delegation wanted
the agreement signed immediately,
he said, while the Mexican commis
sion held out for a withdrawal.
Senor Cabrera pointed out that at
present such a difficulty would not
be met with, since the early with
drawal of the Eighth cavalry, now
pursuing bandits in the State of Chi
huahua was expected.

country over which Villa operated

ened Presidio, Texas. Villa moved
down the Conchos river toward
Ojinaga. deployed his forces on the
plain before that town and attack
ed from three sides. Reinforce
ments for the federal garrison at
Ojinaga arrived along the same trail

attempt to find their way out.
It was believed to-day that at
least one of the bandits was In the
vicinity of the place where the Villa
rebels in the OJinaga district made
their headquarters in the moun
Ildefonso Sanchez, another Villa
leader, was seen in the same dis
trict in which the Americans are
operating, several months ago. He
had small bands scattered through
the mountains.
American troops are taking every
precaution to prevent an ambush
that might prove another trap like
that at Garrizal, at the time of the
Pershing expedition. At night the
troops sleep and stand guard in ro
tation. An advance guard investi
gates every canyon, house and
mountain trail to prevent surprise
Carranza troops under General
Pruneda are at Cuchillo Parado and
there is another federal command
at San Jose, opposite Indio, Texas.
They have made no effort to pre
vent operations by American troops.
The line of communication is be
ing closely guarded and airplanes
are watching every body of Mexi
cans in the zone of operations-
General Dickman denied reports
current that eight more bandits had
been killed below the border.

Soldiers Back Home
New Cumberland, Aug. 23. With
the mesting of the Executive Com
mittee of New Cumberland's Victory
Memorial and Reception Association,
last evening, more detailed plans for
the victory celebration on September
6 were revealed. All committees have
reported splendid progress and each
one is apparently trying to outdo the
other. The appearance of the ban
ners. streamers, posters and wind
shield signs has quickly brought the
activity of this committee to the pub
lic's notice.
Schemes for decorations for the day
have been greatly elaborated jipon
and the orders for buntlqg, etc., now
runs into thousands of feet, all of
which is to be used in erecting a
court of honor in Market Square as
a token of the town's due respect to
their World War veterans.
The largest number of people that
has ever been in the town for a single
occasion is expected on Saturday,
September 6. Plans and accommoda
tions for all are being provided for,
and nothing short of a gala holiday
seems to be forthcoming.
Several of the committees known to
be continuously active are "keeping
things under their hat," but promise
to bring forth some new surprises for
the occasion.

Union Pacific Head Declares
Half Would Go
Washington, Aug. 23.—Private op
eration of railroads cannot be re
stored at existing rates, Robert S,
Lovett, president of the Union Pa
cific Railroad, told the House Inter
state Commerce Committee, during a
discussion, in which he contended
the railroad problem 'ls solely a
question of railroad credit"
Howard Elliott, president of the
Northern Pacific, another witness,
urged early adoption of a national
. transportation policy, declaring de
lay only tended to make "all classes
uucertaln and unsettled." In adop
tion of the transportation policy, he
thought Congress should observe
four principles, as follows:
Government regulatory machinery
to encourage the present transporta
tion system. so that rates will pay
all costs. Including new capital need
ed for expansion of facilities; aban
donment of present method of adjust
ing wage working disputes, with sub
stitution of "a sane method of de
ciding these questions," including
abolishment of strikes, modification
of the Sherman law to permit con
solidations, and making of Federal
authority supreme in regulating
rates, securities and accounts. Rail
roads should have the right to initi
ate rates, Mr. Elliott argued, adding
that the Interstate Commerce Com
mission should have the right of sus
pension and review.
