"WASHINGTON", Nov. 21. State de
Bartment officials still awaited to-
nicht a reply to the note warning the
Mexican government that any further
molestation of William O. Jenkins,
American consular agent at Puebla,
who has been arrested twice in con
nection with his recent abduction, by
bandits, would seriously affect the re
lations between the United States and
While the text of the American gov- j
ernment's communication has not been1
made public, the summary publication
by the state department indicated
that it was one of the sharpest ever
sent to the Carranza government. It
said the United States was both "sur
prised and incensed" to learn of the
reim prison men t of Jenkins, and de
manded his immediate release.
So far as was made known, no re
port regarding Jenkins reached the
department today from the embassy1
at Mexico City, but officials believed :
that if he had not been released he
soon would be as a result of the state
department's demand.
Discussing . the general Mexican
situation today, state department of
ficers revealed that before the world
war the army general staff estimated
that complete intervention in Mexico
by the American government would
require 450,000 men operating over a
period of three years. Prevent esti
mates were i.ot made available, but .it
is known that army officials hold that
the forces necessary would be much ;
less because of the increased army I
equipment, such as motorized trans
port, artillery and airplanes.
Discussing the case of Jenkins, of
ficials .aid because of the Mexican
government's laxity in trying to put
down the revolution it had failed to j
give proper protection to Jenkins and j
that consequently he might have
ground for claim against the Mexican
government for the ransom money
paid to his captors.
Many officials and private citizens
of Washington and other cities have
sent cablegrams to friends in Mexico j
urging them to persuade President
Carranza to save the life of General
Filipe Angeles, who is reported to be
on trial by court-martial today in
Chihuahua City.
The messages pointed out that
Angeles served the allies with distinc- i
tion during the European war as in
spector of munitions for France
this country.

Washington, Nov. 21. Railroad leg
islation and other domestic problems
are to receive first consideration in
the new congress which convenes one
week from next Monday, republican
leaders in both houses are agreed.
As to the peace treaty, their posi
tion is that the fate of the document
rests in the hands of President Wil
son. He can secure its ratification
within the space of a few hours. Just
as he could have achieved Its accept
ance in 15 minutes at any time last
Wednesday, by one simple command
to those senators whose consciences,
convictions and movements he con
trols. There is even a readiness to make
some concessions to his wishes so
long as he does not seek to nullify
the Americanization features of the
reservations. It will be left with Mr.
Wilson to decide whether he will
have the treaty ratifed without delay
or wage another hopeless fight. The
two houses of congress through their
leadership are determined to com
plete the programme of reconstruc
tion legislation for which the coun
,try so patiently has been waiting.
Railroad Legislation First.
The first business before the senate
will be the railroad bill and an effort
will be made to get It out of the I
way before January 1, when the roads
go back to private ownership. The
senate, however, will ignore the Esch
bill, which has just been passed by
the house. The plan is to pass the
Cummins bill, which is a much
stronger measure, and then save as
many as possible of its best features
the conference agreement with
he house.
The railway executives are not
satisfied with the Esch bill because
of its rate-fixing and its labor pro
visions. They are opposing it and
will favor the Cummins measure.
which is said to be framed more in
he interest of the public than the
Esch bill, which represents a lot of
compromises and surrenders.
It is realized that only such anti-
strike provisions as are contained in
the Cummins bill can save the rail
roads from the designs of Glenn E.
Plumb, counsel for the railroad
brotherhoods, author of the Plumb
plan by which the public would buy
the railroads, turn them over to the
railroad workmen and meet whatever
deficits might follow.
More Strikes Expected.
Frequent strikes and renewed wage
demands are expected to follow im
mediately upon the turning back of
the railroads unless some form of
compulsory arbitration is written into
the new railroad law. Unreasonable
demands are regarded as a necessary
part of the campaign to make pri
vate ownership and management im
As has been said before, the Esch
bill in this respect is impotent. The
labor provisions of the Cummins bill
make strikes unlawful pending arbi
tration and an award, and make it
mandatory alike upon railroad offi
cials and employes to submit their
disputes to tribunals set up for that
But Senator Cummins, as an
nounced, intends going much further,
He will offer an amendment extend
ing the same form of compulsory
arbitration to all basi industries,
including fuel, iron, steel, lumber,
foodstuffs and clothing. Around this
proposal will center a struggle which
may equal the treaty battle in the
extent of the pressure that will be
directed toward congress, for enact
ment and defeat of legislation.
LesiftlatJon Only Solution.
Legislation alone, it is felt here,
can solve the growing difficulties
between capital and labor and it i
hard to find" anyone here who re
poses any confidence in the outcome
of the new industrial conference
called by the president to meet in
this city December 1. Of the mem
bers of the new conference, Herbert
Hpover is looked upon as the man
with the most thoroughly practical
vision of all the questions to be con
sidered. There is considerable com
plaint that Stanley King, who wa
formerly - secretary to Secretary of
War Baker, represents nothing bu
radical theories of the parlor variety,

THE DALLES, Or.. Nov. 21. (Spe

nis vest ana wun hands high in the
air, E. D. Hosier was last night held
up and robbed of $5 in cash. Mosler
is an employe of the O.-W. R. & N.
He was on his way home about 9:30
o'clock last night when the robber
boldly commanded him to stick up his

where Mosier was robbed is one of the
darkest spots in the city. Police to

waiting for a receipt for fines paid on
charges or speeding caused the pre
ferment of a charge of bootlegging
against the men. Several quarts of

White In connection with obtainin
from the government several carload
of T. N. T. explosive to be used by
the farmers of northwestern Montana
to clear timber lands for agricultural
purposes are well known through
out the state. Reports were current
that the government had in its pos
session $50,000,000 worth of this high
explosive, which was to be dumped
into the Atlantic ocean. Colonel
White telegriphed President Wilson,
Senator Meyers and other Washington
officials offering to pay all trans
portation charges. The reply from
Senator Myers satisfactorily explains
the governi'.eul's inability to furnish
the explisives, und as a result r.o
blame attaches to Senator Myers or
the war department. No further ef
fort will be made by Colonel White
to obtain the explosives. The reply,
in part, follows:
"To begin with, the report that the
government lias a large amount of
explosives is erroneous. All that is
not needed by the war department
will be turned over to the states for
road work."
