BERLIN. May 23. tSpecial Cabte.)
"Bfread and peace" was the thunderous
cry at a. great mass meeting: of radical
socialists held last night in the plaza
before the palace -where William Hoh
enzollern dwelt. The meeting was, "as
intended, an impressive demonstration
that the proletariat is ready to seize
new power and take any risk.
The shouting- of tens of thousands
could be heard for blocks from the
heart of Berlin, where they met. The
air resounded with cries: "Bread and
"To the devil with Scheidemann and
the ministry." . . i .
"Let the masses of the world carry
on the world revolution."
Sea of Red. Flags tf3vea. . .
A sea of red flags wavedabove the
throng, which ceased singing labor's
Marseillaise" only to listen to dozens
of orators- who-made inflammatory
speeches. This mass demonstration of
independent socialists had - a truly
--American punch and political enthu
siasm. Simultanoeusly the government so
cialists were making a counter dem
onstration on Wilhelmsplatz in sup.

It was a significant "frost. Scarcely
more than a thousand people turned
out to hear Chancellor Scheidemann

shock, division of "independent social

bloodless offensive against the major

Scheidemann Is Jeered.
The independent socialists continued
to parade and yell1' until a late hour up
and down Wilhelmstrasse. In front of
the chancellor's palace and the foreign
office the World and Oregonian cor

the senate. today and at the adjourn
ment the resolution which furnished
the vehicle for the discussion went
over as unfinished business to come up

The resolution merely calls on the
state department to furnish the senate
with the complete text of the treaty,
but as the debate progressed tjjiscus
sion shifted to the merits of the league
and treaty themselves. A dozen en
ators, including the leaders on both
sides, were drawn into the discussion
and sharp exchanges presaged the bit

when the treaty actually comes up for
ratification. - -
Leaders Proceed Cautioasly.
Opponents of the treaty in its pres
ent form lined up generally for the
resolution and those supporting the
treaty draft led the opposition. There
was no attempt to reach a vote, how
ever, and some senators' predicted it
would be several days before the pre

The leaders both for and

Senator Johnsbn of California, re
publican, author of the resolution,
started the debate today with a short
speech, charging that the treaty sup

This assertion drew an indignant reply
from Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska,,
ranking democrat of the foreign rela

precedents in keepfog the treaty text

Federal Court's. Decision to Permit
Breweries to Run Influenced
' - by . Wilson's Message. "
NEW TORK, May 23. Uninterrupt
ed production of "war beer" -until the
courts have passed upon the claim of
the United. States Brewers' association
that the beverage, containing 2 per
cent alcohol, is non-intoxicating, was
assured today when Federal Judge
Mayer. granted an injunction restrain-
Ling the government from interference
with its manufacture.
The court declared that his deeision
had been influenced by President Wil
son's message to congress recommend
ing repeal of the war- tme prohibition
act, insofar as it relates to beer and
wine,- and by Federll Judge Hand's rul
ing last , week that the .1 w placed
ban on the manufacture only of liquors
that were, in fact, intoxicating.
.Although United States District At
torney Caffey representing the govern
ment, opposed granting an injunction.
Judge Mayer 6a; he believed such ac
tion would contribute to a fair settle
ment of the questions raised by the
brewers under the emergency prohi
bition act. The injunction, a tempor
ary one, would be effective, the court
said, pending review of this decision
by the circuit court of appeals, or, if
the government should decide to let
it stand, until the brewers' suit per
manently to enjoin prosecutions for
manufacture of the 2 per cent brew
could be triad in the district court.
Judge Mayer announced that he
would sign the temporary injunction
next Monday and suggested that the
federal attorney and Elihu Root and
William D. Guthrie, counsel for the
brewers,' confer with the senior judge
of the court of -appeals to arrange an
early review of the order. District At
torney Caffey-pointed out that if possi
ble a decision on appeal should be ob
tained before July 1, when' prohibition
of the" sale of intoxicants becomes ef
fective,,' unless congress in the mean
time follows the suggestion of the
president for repeal or. amendment' of
the law. r ,
The ' injunction granted was in the
suit of the Jacob Ruppert Brewing
company against District Attorney Caf
fey and Acting Collector of Internal
Revenue McElliott. . This is one of a
series of cases raising identical ques
tions and intended to test the emer
gency prohibition act in the New4York
district, thus setting a precedent, for

during which time three ballots were
taken, the jury in. the case of Robert

he charged with alienating his wife's j
affections, returned a verdict for Cole !
for $15,500, though Cole had sued for
only 15,000. The Jury- allowed the
1500 for costs of the suit.
The defendants were accused of hav
ing kidnaped Mrs. Cole, a bride, from
her husband's home.' v
- The usual big crowd had gathered
this morning to-hear the arguments in -the
case and when the jury retired at
noon few had left even for lunch,
thinking possibly that the jury would
not, remain out long.
. -On the : first ballot- the jury stood
nine for the full amount and three for
less, the, figure, however, not being
given out. On the second the nine held
firm for the full $15,000 and the three
raised a bit but on the third ballot all
12 jurors voted for $15,500.
Trial Replete With Thrills.
The case has aroused more interest
than any case in Columbia county in
years. . The t r i a 1 was replete with
thrills, of charges and counter-charges.
Mrs. Cole testified on the stand that
she had married Cole in fear that her
life would be taken If she refused:
that she did not love him any more
and Would not live with him under any
circumstances, while Cole's witnesses
took the stand to contradict this tes
timony and attempt to prove that after
the wedding everything was content

Mrs. Alice Blackwell, aunt of Mrs.

LEADERS' HEARTS WOEFUL
State Committee Names Dr. J. W
Morrow as Committeeman, but
llornibrook Wants McCoy.
Will II. Hewnibrook. whoso resigna
tion as democratic national committee-'
man for Oregon has caused such a mess
in the party, has proceeded to compli
cate the situation by declaring that
there is no organization here which
which he set forth that he was giving
a slap in the face to the democratic
state committee, which elected Dr. J.
W. Morrow to the, place a few daya
ago, and at the same time handing a
wallop to the state executive commit
tee of the party, which has had an
ICea that it should till the vacancy.
Not oniy that, but Mr. Hornibrook
wants to give a proxy to Newton Mc
Coy, so that Mr. McCoy can go to the
coming meeting of the national demo
cratic committee at Chicago. Dr. Mor
row, who is already on his way to the
meeting, was an opponent of Mr. Horni
brook fo- the position when they went
before the voters of the party, and at
that time Senator Chamberlain declined
to aid or assist Mr. Hornibrook in the
content, explaining that Dr. Morrow
was his friend. Nevertheless Mr. Horn
Itrook was returned winner at th
Mr. Iloralbroolt So-Rptcioua Soul.
From his editorial sanctum in Van
couver, .Wash.. yesterday Mr. Horni
brook dictated a rather tropical letter
to State Chairman Starkweather, in
which he set forth that he was given
his proxy to Mr. McCoy beca-use he
doesn't want "the Journal and the Jour-
1 democratic ring" to become supreme
in the Oregon democratic party, and
because he doesn't trust them, or words
to like import and character.
When the state executive committee
deadlocked over electing a successor to-
Mr. Hornibrook. Dr. Morrow called a
meeting of the state committee and had
liinmelf elected national committeeman.
He is now on his way to Chicago' and
is said to be carrying credentials not
only from the committee but from C. S.
Jackson and Oswald West and will have
others from Senator Chamberlain.

Before Dr. Morrow entrained with his

explaining the situation and ask
ing what should be done afTd what could
be done. No reply haa'becn received,
possibly because of inefficient service
on the part of Mr. Burleson.
Meanwhile, instead of pausing for
reply. Mr. Starkweather issued a call
for a special meeting of the execu
tive committee for May 28. At that
tim it was his plan to elect eomeone

Complex Problem Presented.
So the t-ituatlon is like this: Dr.
Morrow, believing he is national com
mitteeman fpr Oregon, i3 on his way .
to Chicago to- try to have a western
headquarters of the party established
in Portland; Chairman Starkweather '
has Issued a call for the executiva
committee to meet May 2S the day of
the national conference in the windy
city to elect a successor to Mr. Horni- '
brook, and Mr. Hornibrook. although
he tendered a resignation to Chair
man Starkweather, contends that
neither the state committee nor the
executive committee can accept It and
that only the national committee can'
do this, and, finally, Mr. Hornibrook
wants Newton McCoy to be his proxy .
at Chicago where, Mr. Hornibrook
argues, Mr. McCoy can be seated and
Dr. Morrow can't.
' Back of tTese maneuvers is a deter
mination to fight Senator Chamberlatn. ,
Dr. Morrow is considered a Chamber
lain man, despite his denials. Mr.
Hornibrook is not enamored of Sen
ator Chamberlain. Neither is Colonel
Miller, nor Mrs. Thompson, nor Mr.
McCoy. The fact that Senator Cham
berlain's friends were so anxious to
secure the election of Dr. Morrow as
national committeeman only "confirmed
the suspicions of the apti-Chamber-lainites.
Senator Chamberlain will be
una for renomination next year, and if
he passes the primaries ho will be a '
candidate for senator in November,
during tho presidential election.
It is possible that a republican sen
ator will be elected and if a democratic
president should be elected at "the sami
time, the faction represented by tho
national committeeman and the state
chairman will have all tnc ffderal pat- '
ronage. That such a contingency is
possible and also probable is the belief
of democrats who are already cam
