PARIS, Feb. 16. Premiers Milier
and and Lloyd George have sent a re
ply to President Wilson's note relative
to tire Adriatic compromise and hold
to their position expressed in the note
sent to the Jugo-Slav government on
January 20, giving- that government a
choice between the compromise or the
execution of the treaty of London, ac
cording to Pertinax in the Echo de
Paris this morning.
Mr. Wilson's charges against Italy
are rejected by the two premiers, it
Is said by the newspaper, which de
clared they asserted in their reply
that Italy threw all her weight into
the struggle and fought for high
ideals. The number of Italian dead is
recalled in one section of the reply.
While thus replying to Mr. Wilson,
Mr. Lloyd George, acting as president
of the conference, wrote M. Trum
bitch, Jugo-Slav foreign minister, in
forming him that England and France
maintained their original viewpoint,
namely, that Jugo-Slavia must accept
the compromise agreement or face
the execution of the treaty of London.
PARIS, Feb. 15. Hugh C. Wallace

PARIS. Feb. IS. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) In his memorandum
President Wilson criticises Premier
Lloyd George's plan as communicated
to the Jugo-Slavs by the supreme
council on January 20.
The president examined the plan,
but declares he cannot approve of its
tenor. He particularly opposes the
idea of giving the Jugo-Slavs the
choice between this plan and execu
tion pure and simple of the league
In addition, according to the Temps,
the president finds the Lloyd George
plan too divergent from the memor
andum drawn up at London last De
cember by Premiers Lloyd George and
Clemenceau with the collaboration of
the American representative.
The president gives it to be under
stood that If the allied powers settle
the Adriatic problem without consult
ing the United States government, the
United States will find it impossible
to concern Itself in European affairs.

"Tom Never Wrote of All Honors," j
Says Wife in Discussing Hus
band's War Record.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Feb. 15. (Spe
cial.) Thomas Harries, 52 years old,
postmaster at Renton, a coal mining
1 center near here, has been decorated
and knighted by the king of Italy for
valiant work during the war, accord
ing o a 'communication received by
Mrs. Harries Saturday.
Tom never wrote anything about
all these honors," said Mrs. Harries.
"He sent an Italian paper with an ac
count of the ceremony in it, but of
course I couldn't read a word of it. I
brought it to the Italian shoe mend
er on the corner, and he read the ac
count. It seems that my Tom ren
dered some sort of exceptional serv
ice in the Italian Alps, for which he
received the knighthood of the crown
of Italy and became chevalier to the
king. The cobbler said it is an un
usually high honor."
Saturday night confirmation of the
newspaper article was received from
Lieutenant Antonio di Marco, a staff
officer, who congratulated Mrs. Har
ries upon the honor her husbaand re
ceived. According to the Italian lieu
tenant, the former Renton postmaster
went to the dangerous portions of the
Italian battlefront, where he brought
cheer and medical assistance to the
soldiers of the Italian army. The
lieutenant declared in his letter that
the Renton man's various activities
were too many to describe in one short
letter, but that the Italian govern
ment had taken them into account

WASHINGTON; Feb. 15. Formula
tion of a definite programme as a
basis on which to continue its cam
paign against high living costs has
been Initiated by railroad labor, it
was disclosed tonight by union of
ficials. While the wage demands cf
the 2,000.000 railroad workers, which
have held official attention since Feb
ruary 3, will be held in temporary
abeyance at the request of the presi
dent, there is no disposition on the
part of union leaders to regard their
work as complete or to await a!
together a final decision on the whole
wage controversy to be given by the
general conference of union commit
teemen to be held here February 23.
The attitude of the union officials,
while, they expressed gratification at
the recognition of certain, of their
principles by President Wilson, is
predicated on an apparently general
belief among their membership that
the government "has not held together
In many of its drives on the high
cost of living specter."
Much criticism was directed at con
gress and the heads of executive de
partments during the recent wage
negotiations, leaders said. The gen
eral feeling of railroad labor was ex
pressed in this question, asked by a
union official who has carried its
grievances through the negotiations:
"Are we, as Americans, to admit
that we cannot control the profiteer?"
Polities! Effort Unhampered. -
The programme under considera,
tion will in no way run counter to
the plan of the American federation
of Labor which has announced its in
tention of engaging aggressively in
the coming political campaign. With
this railroad union leaders said they
were In complete accord. Union heads
said they desired to have their ideas
worked out comprehensively for. sub
mission to the general conference
next week. Intimation was made that
a plea was to be made to the more

BORROWING A SUNDAY DINNER. i
Chief Executive's Accusation as to
Secretary's Actions ' Moves
Libre Parole to Laughter.
PARIS, Feb. 15. Although all Paris
newspapers gave prominence to
Washington dispatches telling of the
resignation of Secretary of State
Lansing and his correspondence with
President .'Wilson, few have com
mented editorially. The Journal calls
the event "a striking example of the
autocratic regime, the : facade of
which is democratic."
"President Wilson," the newspaper
continues, "returns after his mys
terious illness and comes to the con
clusion that Secretary Lansing during
his absenco has been ruling as Lan
sing wished, and dismisses him. Na
tional representaation and popular
sentiment are not even consulted in
reaching a decision in which Louis
XIV would have used more formality.
"Opposition has existed between
Mr. Wilson and Mr. Lansing ever since
the latter acted in the peace confer
ence. Mr. Lansing was openly blamed i
for concessions Mr. Wilson was forced
to make, and the. president's . illness
alone prevented an outbreak of the
conflict between the two. Mr. Wil
son's motive in this matter, however,
may have been complex. Is not Mr.
Lansing called upon to play the clas
sic role of the scapegoat, which as
sumes the burden of his superior's
faults? The choice of a new secre
tary will give an interesting indica
tion." The Libre Parole remarks:
"President Wilson, who has gov
erned his country seven years without
the least regard for national represen
tation; who threw America into the
war after winning the election on a
peace programme and who domineered
over the peace negotiations, returns
from a mysterious illness to accuse
Bis foreign minister of governing
autocratically during his absence.
Isn't that laughable? Mr. Wilson has
given the impression for some days
that he is preparing to 'change his
coat.' Isn't Mr. Lansing's disgrace
the first step?"
LONDON, Feb. 16. The resignation
of Secretary of State Lansing ie given
great prominencein the London morn

cumstances is treated as a first-class
sensation. Most of the papers edi

old-time democratic platform."
In view of political gossip that Mr.
Marshall is stated to become chair

pecial interest by officials here.

"Another presidential ampaign im
pends," Mr. Marshall ' wrote. "Thus
far the president, who is the caief of
our party, has not ueemed it expedi
ent to express his opinion as to what
the issues will be. As I am desirous
of being a delegate at large from the
state of Indiana I wish, in consonance
with what I hope has been my entire
public career, to state the substance
of what I think the democratic party
should stand for. I would not want
to go under any misapprehension as
to my views upon the part of the
unfaltering democrats of Indiana.
"We were in the war from the very
moment of its European beginning,
because it affected our internal af

sures adopted for the preservation of
the peace of our country and the win

al and I am ready to defend them.
J Rehabilitation Is Discussed.
"The war is now over and the re
habilitation of America, as well as
the rest of the world, is taking place.
It is not possible to accomplish our
rehabilitation other than through the
instrumentalities of political parties.
How shall the democratic party pro
pose, to rehabilitate the political sys
tem of the United States if entrusted
with power, is the question.
"I have watched in other countries
the effects of so-called unbridled de
mocracy, and I have seen its menace
in this country, until I am quite con
vinced that the peace, prosperity and
perpetuity of the American republic
must rest finally upon a few ancient
and time-honored democratic doc
trines, "No one save God can remove the
individual aa th. "unit of good gov
ernment. Legislative efforts to pro
duce Justice and good order in society
by listening and acceding to the de

Th. only sure foundation for a stable
republic must rest upon th. Jeffer-

the pursuit of happiness.
Individual Right a Upheld.
- "The democratic party should stand
for this and pledge itself to rebuild
the American political structure along
this line by clearly dividing its citi

equally upon all men; permitting the

succeed by honest methods; giving
to no citizen legislative advantage;
speedily punishing anyone who un

that thia is still a federation of
