Treaty to Be Pre-eminent
Congress for Week.

Senate Factions to Keep Full Vot

Roll-Call Vote.

WASHINGTON. Sept. 21. Immi
nence of a decisive vote by the sen
ate on amending the league of nations
covenant will hold the German peace
treaty pre-eminent in affairs of con
gress this week. Except for concern
over the industrial situation espe
cially the steel workers' strike, the
league of nations contest promises to
dwarf all other questions.
The second week of actual consid
eration of the peace treaty mill open
tomorrow, with both advocates and
opponents of the league conceding
the approach of the first actual test
of strength.
By the end of the week or early
next week, both factions expect the
first vote on amendment - of the
league covenant. While the senate is
engrossed with the treaty, the house
will be comparatively inactive, con
sidering tariff revision and other
minor bills.
Factions Master Strength.
The senate factions are to have
their full voting strength on hand
tomorrow to remain until- the roll
. c.lls are reached. Little action, how
ever, is expected for a few days. De
bate will be resumed tomorrow. Sen
ator Reed of Missouri is planning a
lengthy address in attack upon the
league covenant.
The first test of strength undoubt
edly will center about the amend
ment of Senator Johnson of Califor
nia to give Great Britain and the
United States equal voting, power in
the league assembly.
Republican leaders believe they can
muster their greatest strength on this
amendment, and consider that if
adopted it would enhance their pros
pects of voting for amendments. Dem
ocratic leaders, however, express un
impaired confidence that with aid
of republicans opposing amendments
they will be able to defeat all
. amendments.
It is planned to dispose of other
business daily before the treaty is
called up. Leaders hope to enact this
week the prohibition enforcement
bill and possibly the food control ex
tension act to provide profiteering
Railroad Legislation Next.
Labor problems also are promised
considerable attention. The steel
strike is expected to provoke debate
; in both senate and house, but no leg
islation dealing with industrial prob
lems is contemplated at this time.
The house interstate commerce com
mittee plans to close Its hearings this
week and begin drafting railroad leg
- Another important development as
regards Industrial conditions will be
the appearance Tuesday before the
senate interstate commerce commit
tee of representatives of railroad
brotherhoods to oppose the anti-strike
clauses of the Cummins railroad bill.
The senate foreign relations sub
committee will contirrue its investi
gation of the Mexican situation.
Immigration restriction will be con
sidered Thursday by the house com
mittee in hearing Pacific coast wit
nesses on Asiatic immigration.
Announced Release of Four At
taches of Court of Domestic Re
lations Creates Interest.
Whether; the action of Judge Kanz
ler of the court of domestic relations
in dismissing four attaches of his de
partment will be the basis of a con-
- test in the courts to determine the
constitutionality of the procedure, is
a question that is creating consider
able interest. Definite steps toward
the suit have been taken, it was said
yesterday. Mrs. Delia C. Whiting.
' chief probation officer for girls, and
one of those who will leave the serv
ice September 80, said the removal
of the four attaches was a matter up
to Judge Kanzler, and that she was
not prepared to say that those in
cluded in his order would contest
the dismissal.
T. B. McDevitt, deputy probation
officer, and one of those to be dls
missed, said he lad not considered
participation in a suit to test the con
stitutionallty of the court's action
and had not discussed such action
with other attaches.
Other officers to be dismissed are
Mrs. SoDhle E. King, deputy proba
tion officer for girls, and Mrs. Mary
Mallett deDutv probation officer for
eirls. Judtre Kanzler announced in
connection with the proposed changes
that thev are to be made for Detter
ment of the department, and not be
cause of any criticism of those who
are to be let out.

PROOF of the popularity, of Doug
las Fairbanks is the fact that
"His Majesty, the American," is
now starting its second week at the
Majestic theater.
"His Majesty, the American," is
the first Fairbanks picture to follow
the "Big Four" establishment which
caused the joining or forces of Mary
Pickford, D. W. Griffith, Fairbanks
and Charlie Chaplin for the purpose
of working independently and pro
ducing better, more artistic films.
The effect of this union is evident in
"His Majestic, the American."
The picture is not spectacular in
the sense that plot and action are
minimized for the purpose of several
big and awe inspiring scenes. Yet at
the same time there are hundreds
and hundreds of persons used in nu
merous scenes. The scenes are mob
scenes such as are being witnessed
daily in some of the European cities.
They are timely and they have a cer
tain news value yet that is not their
own appeal. They were included in
the picture solely because Fairbanks
knew that should such' an event
actually occur the mob would not be
small. Therefore he has made no
effort to fake it. The picture at
every angle shows that no effort has
been made to save expense, that ar
tistically and realistically it is con
sistent and pleasing.
The human interest note is brought
into this picture of seething unrest
by the continued reference to "moth
er." Heretofore there has been little
appeal to sentiment In the Fairbanks
productions. But in "His Majesty,
the American," "Doug .is looking for

Columbia Orchestra Opens.
The second orchestra to be intro
duced to Portland motion picture fans
during this "film" week is that of
the Columbia theater which made its
debut last evening. The orchestra is
composed of eight pieces played by
local artists. During the showing of
the feature film, "Choosing a Wife'
it played music whic'.j intrepreted the
dramatic action increasing the at
mosphere of the picture. This was
particularly noticeable during the
scene showing an English ball where
the old 'fashioned waltz was in prog
ress. An old time waltz familiar to
all in the audience was delicately
played and brought the picture into
great effectiveness.
Screen Gossip.
Nearly 100,000 people witnessed the
feats of 50 picked aviators at the
Aerial Circus at Cecil B. DeMille's
California flying field recently. The
purpose of the circus was to raise
funds for a memorial to aviators who
lost their lives during the war. Bevies
of Famous Players-Lasky girls, lead
by Gloria Swanson and Wanda Haw-
ley, assisted Wallace Reid's jazz band
in collecting donations.
Clara Kimball Young hereafter is
to be seen but four times a year on
the screen.
Following her last picture, "The
Better Wife," which was shown with
in the past few months. Miss Young
will devote three months to each pro
duction instead of four and five weeks,
which the releasing schedule com
pelled her to hurry through.
Her first picture. "Eyes of Youth;
will inaugurate her new distributing
scheme with Elevating a Husband1
to follow four months later.
Marion Davies will star in "The
Cinema Murder." Nigel Barrie will
support her. "The Cinema Murder'
is by E. Phillips Oppenheim. Francis
Marion wrote the scenario and Rob
ert D. Baker was the director.
Billie Burke, the popular stage and
Paramount-Artcraf t screen star, al
ways occupies a box at Jhe opening
pertorraance or the ironies, wnicn are
produced by her husband, Florenz
Ziegfeld. Miss Burke put her unquall-

remarked, "It is a wonder somebody
doesn't have him arrested for the

House Peters, the romantic actor,
is now under the productional man
agement of Harry Garson.
Monte 'Katterjohn will supply the
stories for the Peters films, in which
Vincent Serrano, Mildred Reardon
Ruth Sinclair, Gareth Hughes, Mary
Alden, Edward Kimball, Pauline Stark
and other feature players will appear.
"Love, Honor and Obey is to be
the first production and it will be
shown early in November.
Where Clara Kimball Young's last
picture cost, completed, less than J40
000, her next picture "Eyes of Youth,
will cost close to J250.000.
Miss Young paid A. H. Woods more
for the story of "Eyes of Youth'
than the entire production of "The
Better Wife" cost.
Jed Prouty will never make an avia
tor. He had a horrible experience
recently. While playing with Billie
Burke in "Saddie Love." He had. to es
cape out the second story window
down a rope Ynade of sheets tied to
gether. Sheet ropes get all twisted up
and when Joe applied his weight to
them they commenced to untwist.
There was the poor chap dangling in
mid-air, twirling around like a top.
It made him so sick he didn't care
what happened, eo ha let go and
dropped a story on a nice soft (?)
mattress. It took him a day to re
cover. He tried it successfully the
next time.
As proof of the world-wide popu

Major Robert Warwick has been pro
claimed winner in a monster popu

The contest was conducted by La
Semana Cinematograf ica," a flourish
ing magazine published for the benefit
of "movie" fans of that far-away land.
Naturally the soldier-actor now star
ring in Paramount-Artcraft produc
tions, feels highly complimented by
the remarkable tribute. Wallace Reid
stood high at the finih of the contest.
When Pole Stand Strong and To

Avers Indian Seere&s.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Sept. 21. (Spe
cial.) Evil days are ahead for Seat
tle. No less an authority than Pil-
chuck Julia, seeress of the Pilchuck
Indian tribe which lives in the Cas
cades, has made this prophecy after
a cruise about the city in which she
made the startling discovery that the
huge nose of the crow in the totem
pole in Pioneer square is cracked
ar.d thaetened with disconnection
from its body.
"When totem pole stand, when
strong, when all together, then good
luck for family comes. Heap bad
luck sure." That's superstition about
the totem pole. But maybe' the spirit
of old Chief Seattle will send here
a "heap big medicine man." who will
effect a miraculous cure for that
fractured nose and avert the threat
ened disaster. -

strike in the event they could not
make a settlement. They say they
are prepared for a bitter battle and
would not have gone into It if they
were not sure they could sustain
the struggle.
Confidence has been expressed that
money to finance the strike will- not
be lacking.
Labor leaders were asked today if
they knew of any efforts being made
to bring about a suspension of the
strike. They said they did not. Up
to the last minute there was a faint

All Organisers at Work.
National headquarters of the steel
workers were deserted today. All

his time had been taken up in keep

them to remain at work but not to

lines who go out on strike.
No information came from the cor

Officials of subsidiary companies and
independent concerns during the past

union leaders ridicule the state
ments of company officials that not
more than la per cent of the steel

also claim that 98 per cent of the
steel workers in the union voted for
the strike.
Corporation officials paid much at
tention to conditions at the Donora
plant of the American Steel & Wire

company officials say, will remain
