SULLIVI THUS
BUS FAGES SiG
Opposition to Bill Now Said
to Have Increased.
HARDING VETO EXPECTED
Hone AVUI Override President,
hut Senate Will Not. Is View;
Subsidy Legislation Waits.
BY MARK SULLIVAN".
'.Iivright by the New York Evening
I'n&i Pub.ished by Arrangement.)
' WASHINGTON. D. C. Auk. 21.
It is undeniable that when the
bonus bill comes to a vote in the
senate it will pass. But it is
equally undeniable that the current
is running strongly against the
bonus. Indeed, it can be taken for
granted that there will be no bonus
legislation certainly not in any
shape that will carry cash into the
pockets of the soldiers any time
in the near future.
When the bill comes to a rollcall
in the senate, there will be about
30 or 32 votes out of the total of
96 either cast against it or paired
against it. This represents a rather
extraordinary growth or sentiment.
When the bill was first discussed
ahout six months ago. there were
only eight senators who were then
counted on for opposition. Thirty
two votes would not, of course, be
enoueh to defeat the bill. It w-ill
iimss the senate and will go to
President Harding.
Veto Taken for Granted.
That the president will veto is
universally taken for granted. The
subject of discussion now is just
w hat will be the nature of his veto
message. If he vetoes the bill on
the broad grounds that the whole
bonus idea is fundamentally un
sound, the question may be out of
the way permanently. But there
is some feeling that Mr. Harding
may put his veto merely on the
same ground as his opposition 15
months ago, when he said that the
bill could not be considered in the
present state of the treasury and
under the present weight of taxa
tion. If the president's veto is put
upon this ground it will have the
effect of merely postponing the
issue. Even so, that postponement
will be for a considerable period.
If the bonus must await some
lessening of our present taxation
the answer is that there is hardly
any thoughtful person in Wash
ington who thinks he can foresee
any material lessening of our
national taxation within a period
of five years or more.
Whatever the grounds upon which
President Harding may base his
veto, the bill will then go back to
congress. The lower house will
provide the necessary two-thirds
vote to pass it over the president's
veto. But the senate will not.
There has been much doubt on
this point, but it is now reasonably
certain that there are close to 40
senators who will vote against
passing the bonus bill over the
president's veto. This includes the
30 or 32 who will vote against the
bill in the first instance, and in
addition about eight more who will
feel that their personal promises
to vote for the bill will be dis
charged by their action in the first
instance and who will refuse to aid
in passing the bill over the presi
dential veto.
Delay for Ship Subsidy.
If the tide is running against the
soldier bonus, so also is it running
against the probability of the ship
subsidy bill being taken up at the
present session. It may well be a
full year before final action one
way or the other will be taken on
the ship subsidy bill by both houses.
President Harding, some weeks
ago. was insistent that action should
be taken on the bill at the present
session. Since then, however, the
strikes have intervened, have con
sumed a gre.at deal of time already
and will consume much of the fu
ture time of congress.
What actuated President Harding
in his wish that the ship subsidy
should be acted on at the present
session is the fact that the next
regular session beginning in Decern
ber will have only about eight work
ing weeks. That time will be too
short for consideration of the ship
subsidy in addition to other busi
ness. This will put up to Mr. Hard
ing the question whether he wishes
to call a special session of con
gress after March 4.
Among other reasons for the post
ponement of the ship subsidy bill,
the present congress, both house and
senate, 5s anxious to quit and get
away to their states and districts
for the coming elections. Even the
necessity for considering the emer
gency legislation about coal, asked
for by President Harding, is irk
some to the impatient senators and
congressmen.
negotiations today for an unani
mous consent to agreement for a
final senate vote on the soldiers'
bonus bill, but apparently with
little prospect of immediate success.
Some progress was reported, but it
was understood that four or five
senators objected to an agreement
at this time.
The bonus measure is the senate's
unfinished business and will be
taken up after the senate recon
venes Wednesday. Chairman Mc
Cumber of the finance committee
plans to deliver a prepared address
at that time in support of it and
come majority leaders said that
unless there was an agreement
meantime for a time for the final
vote the legislation would have to
be fought out to a finish on the
floor. Several substitute measures
have been proposed and many
amendments to the committee draft
are promised. All of these are ex
pected to lead to more or less pro
longed discussion.
After the bonus is passed by the
senate and the general belief at
the capitol is that it will go through
finally by a substantial majority
it would, in the usual course, be
sent to conference for the compos
ing ofs differences between the
senate and house. In that event it
would be handled by the same con
ference committee to which the
tariff measure will be referred this
week, with little prospect that it
would receive attention until after
the committee had completed its
work on the tariff.

The second concert of jazz music
played by the High Brown Five,
negro orchestra, last night in The
Oregonan radio room and broadcast
to thousands of delighted listeners,
was every bit as fast and snappy as
the first one they gave several
weeks ago. From every part of the
city and surrounding towns phone
calls came in from listeners, report
ing fine reception of the numbers
and asking for their favorite selec
tions to be played by the clever
negro musicians.
The hour allowed the station was
altogether too short for the fans, as
their requests were so numerous It
would have taken several hours to
grant them all.
As in the first concert, the feature
of last night's programme was
Octavia Doram's singing. This col
ored soprano has a voice that is
suited both for orchestra accom
paniment and wireless transmission.
In fact her voice has such strong
carrying power to throw it into the
'ether" that after the first number
it was necessary to move her sev
eral feet from the transmitter col
lector. Her selections last night were
"High Brown Blues," 'Cuddle Up
Blues," "When," "Vale," "The Sheik"
and "In My Honey's Lovin' Arms."
Another feature of the programme
which brought much applause from
the fans was the clever piano play
ing of A. Thompson, who played two
snappy solos. His selections were
'The Imitation Rag" and the
"Twelfth Street Rag."
The other numbers of the pro
gramme were played by the orches
tra and were "Jazzalog," "Gin Gin
Ginny Shore," "By the Riverside,"
"Some Sunny Day," "Nobody' Lied,"
"The Sneak," "I Wish I Knew,"
"Sweet Indiana Home" and "Bow
Wow Blues."
The High Brown Five will be in
Portland for a long stay, as they
have many concert engagements in
and near the city. It is probable
they will play in The Oregonian
tower again at some future date.
The programme last night was
sent out under the direction of the
Ship Owners' Radio Service of Port
land. The next programme to be broad
cast from The Oregonian radio
tower will be on Wednesday night
and will consist of vocal and instru
mental solos by pupils of Ella Con
nell Jesse and Mityiine Kraker Stites
and two well-known local profes
sional vocalists. The programme
will be broadcast between 8 and 10
o'clock and will be in the nature of
a recital arranged by the two prom
inent local music teachers.

County Agrees to Turn Over Poor
Farm for Park.
Further evidence of co-operation
between tax-levying bodies of Mult
nomah county was shown yesterday
at a joint meeting of the county
commissioners, school board and
city council. The county officials
agreed to turn the 200-acre tract
known as the county poor farm over

poses. City .Commissioner Pier and
Charles S. Rudeen, chairman of the
board of county commissioners, also
agreed to make the formal transfer
of the property at 2 o'clock Thurs

simple and brief, but a large at
tendance is anticipated. A large
portion of the tract will be devel
oped as a golf course.
FRUIT CROPS ARE LARGE
Harvest of Prunes and Apples in
Xyssa District Is Xear.
NTSSA, Or., Aug. 21. (Special.)
The drop of prunes and apples dur
ing August was a little above the
normal drop, yet it is expected that
a large crop will be harvested.
Prune picking will begin about Sep
tember 1. The Idan-Ha Prune Or
chard company has made prepara
tions to harvest about 1Q0 carloads.
The prunes will be shipped in bushel
baskets this season.
The Nyssa Fruit Growers' asso
ciation recently completed the re
modeling of the old Reece ware
house for handling apples, of which
it expects to harvest a bumper crop.
4 8 Sheep Killed by Dogs.
EUGENE, Or., Aug. 21. (Special.)
Following a raid on a flock of
sheep near Santa Clair by maraud
ing dogs that killed 4$ of the an
imals, the Lane county court has
announced that action will be taken
against all unlicensed dogs in the
county which are causing more loss
to sheepmen than predatory an
imals, in the opinion of county of
ficials. A total of $1045.38 has been
paid by the county since the first of
the year to sheep owners, which
represents about 50 per cent of the
total valuation of animals lost by
dogs. The dog license fees are
added to the fund which is used to
reimburse the sheepmen for the loss
to flocks.

WALLACE, Idaho, Aug. 21. (Spe
cial.) The vanguard of the repub
lican state convention arrived in
Wallace tonigm and turned the
Samuels hotel into a political caucus
hive preparatory to the opening of
the biennial conclave tomorrow
noon. While many of the delegates.
especially those from northern
Idaho, came by automobile the ma
jority of them reached Wallace at
7:30 tonight by special train from
southern Idaho. With bands sere
nading, the delegates, republican
leaders and those who aspire for
nominations marched from the depot
to the Samuels, where political quar
ters were immediately 'opened, and
the milling to line up the congres
sional and state tickets started. .
The initial demonstration for any
candidate started immediately after
the special arrived, when a large
number of the southern Idaho dele
gates marched through the hotels
singing a song, entitled "The State
Wants Charlie Moore for Governor."
There was nothing tonight to indi
cate that the predicted nomination
of Lieutenant Governor C. C. Moore
for governor by acclamation when
the convention gets down to the
business of naming its candidates
will be changed. A majority of the
delegates on the special made it
cjear that they favored Mr. Moore's
candidacy. Unless there is an un
foreseen development within the
next 24 hours, which is not now ap
parent, the scheduled programme for
Mr. Moore s nomination will go
through.
Rent of Ticket Uncertain.
The situation with regard to the
remainder of the ticket is not so
certain. There is a contest over the
lieutenant governorship, with Will
H. Gibson of Mountain Home. H. C.
Baldrldge of Parma and Donald A.
Callahan of Wallace as the leading
aspirants. Both are making
strong canvass among the delegates.
For secretary of state Capt. F. A
Jeters. state purchasing agent, in
dorsed by Kootenai county; Miss
Margaret Roberts of Boise, state
traveling librarian, and Bennett
Williams, present chief clerk in the
secretary of state's office, are can
didates. Captain Jeters is said by
party leaders to have the united
support of the north. He likely wlli
get the nomination from the south
which has for some years conceded
this office to the panhandle. Miss
Roberts' candidacy is being stren
uously pushed by the women dele
gates in the convention. C. G. Crom
well, auditor of Benewah county, is
mentioned.
. "Women Are Mentioned.
It is forecast that Dan Banks,
state treasurer, who is . unopposed
so far, will be nominated to suc
ceed himself, and that E. G. Gallett,
present state auditor, also will oe
renominated. The latter is being op
posed by G. C. Dunn, auditor of Cas
sia county. A. H. Conner of Sand
Point is conceded to be the prob
able winner of the nomination for
attorney-general and Stewart Camp
bell, present state mine inspector,
is slated to succeed himself. Two
women, who. it Is said, party leaders
are considering for state superin
tendent of public instruction, are
Mrs. Watkins of Salmon City and
Miss Boyer of Pocatello,
Frank Ryan of Weiser, author ot
the Idaho public utilities law, who
denies that he is a candidate for
the nomination of supreme court
justice, is mentioned for that office
together with C. H. Heitman of
Rathdrum. former state chairman of
the republican state central com
mittee, and Guy Martin of Sand
Point.
Primary taw la Ismie.
Advocates of the state-wide pri
mary plank under the leadership of
the 20 instructed delegates from Ada
county have made the primary an
issue before the convention and it
has now become known that the
leaders who have the convention in
charge favor a free and open dis
cussion of this issue not only be
fore the resolutions committee but
upon the convention floor if neces
sary. The primary supporters de
clare they are prepared to prove to
the committee and the delegates
that the party must adopt a primary
plank if the state ticket hopes to
pool its full strength.
The platform recommended by the
platform committee, authorized and
appointed by the state central com
mittee, has placed its drafted re
port with State Chairman Thomas.
While the contents of the report
are not known in detail, it has de
veloped that a number of the rec
ommended planks will not be ac
cepted and that the proposed plat
form will be greatly ..altered. '

FARM WORK PLENTIFUL
Japanese Are Getting Foothold in
A'icinity of Xyssa.
NYSSA. Or., Aug. 21. (Special.)
There seems to be plenty of work
for willing hands; in fact, a short
age in hay hands.
This season has seen the invasion
of a number of Japanese into this
vicinity, a 'large number of Nyssa
farmers having leased their ranches
to these people. It seemed the only
salvation for some, as the alfalfa
weavil caused many to plow up their
alfalfa. It is expected that hav will
bring a good price this winter, as
many fields formerly in hay now
are planted to potatoes and head
lettuce.
Some of the head lettuce raised
in this vicinity was condemned on
account of a slight brown wilt on
the outside leaves. This did not ex
tend to the lettuce heart in many
instances, but was thought to have
been caused by a light rain and then
the hot sun's rays later in the day,
well as by the extreme hot
weather. .

of the state arrived here this after
noon to attend the state democratic
convention, which convenes tomor
row at noon to nominate candidates
for congress and state offices.
One hundred and ten votes in the
convention will be represented by
260 delegates. Many counties are
sending from one to six delegates
for each vote. Blaine county, with
one vote, will have 26 delegates, al
though the W. M. Morgan forces,
headed by R. H. Stevenson, former
state senator and farmer editor of
the Press-Times at Wallace, are
making a hard fight- to turn the
tide for the former member of the

delegates this afternoon indicated
that Mose Alexander will be nomi

70 votes already assured. If the
Morgan forces are not strengthened
greatly by tomorrow morning it is,
indicated they will turn their votes

WASHINGTON, D. C. Aug. 21. An
appeal by the American Federation
of Labor to its 4,000,000 members to
day to give moral and financial sup
port to the railroad shopmen's strike
served to jolt considerably the op
timism in administration quarters
that the strike" would be settled at
the mediation conference between
the railroad brotherhood officials
and railway executives at the New
York conference this week.
Following the statement issued by
Samuel- Gompers, president of the
Federation, Saturday, declaring
President Harding's address to con
gress on the industrial situation to
have been "unfortunate" and pre
dicting that it would restrain rather
than facilitate the peace negotia
tions, the executive council of the
federation today issued the appeal
for widespread eupport of the strike.
Ternn Tteclared Unfair.
The federation appeal addressed
to "all organized labor" was in part
as follows: v
The executive council of the
American Federation of Labor ad
dresses this appeal to all organized
labor throughout America in behalf
of the organizations in the; railway
employes' department whose mem
bers are now on strike to resist the
imposition of unfair terms and con
ditions of employment.
"It must be clear to all wage
earners and to all thinking men and
women that the policy which ha
been pursued by the railroads has
been entirely in harmony with the
policies of all organizations of em
ployers which, since the armistice,
have been seeking to weaken and
destroy the voluntary organizations
of the workers
The railroads have been en
gaged in this effort from the mo
ment government control was relin
quished on March 1, 1920.
Co-Operatjon Long Attempted.
"For two and a half years the
railroad workers, now on strike,
made every possible effort to co
operate with v the railroad labor
board in order to give the law every
possible trial and to secure, if pos
sible, just ends for the workers and
continuous operations of the roads.
"No amount of conscientious ef
fort and forbearance on, the part
of the workers, however, could
overcome the attitude and the pol
icies dictated by the small but pow
erful group of bankers who control
the finances of the railroads and
who have compelled the adoption
by the railroads of a policy of bit
ter antagonism to the organizations
of the workers.
"Finally, the decisions of the
board compelled resistance on the
part of the workers through sus
pension of work. A wage of 23
cents per hour was established for
section men and this wage is the
basis upon which all other wages
are calculated.
Overtime Is Abolished.
"In addition to this the board or
dered the abolition of the payment
of time and a half for work done
on Sundays and holidays. It was
sought to impose grave injustices
upon the workers through rulings
of the labor board while the rail
roads had consistently violated and
repudiated rulings of the board
from the beginning."
Reports persisted here tonight
that the rail strike, if ended by the
negotiations now in progress, would
be settled by means of a "gentle
men's agreement." Notwithstand
ing the denial of T. DeWItt Cuyler,
president of the Association of Rail
way Executives, it was reported on
good, authority that the proposal
under consideration provided a
means for both sides to "save their
the "big five" brotherhoods for
ending the shopcrafts strike, the
eastern presidents' conference today
held a secret meeting to formulate
a policy for its 11 members to pro
mote at the national session.
What action the eastern group,
which includes several of the most
powerful lines, will finally pursue
was not indicated, those attending
today's meeting asserting they had
been pledged to secrecy. The only
comment was made by L. F. Loree,
president of the Delaware & Hud
son and chairman of the confer
ence, who issued a statement set
ting forth that the Atlantic coast
roads, which normally employ 161,
339 shopmen, had brought their
forces up to 71.5 per ceat of that
figure on August IS.
This represented an increase of
2.5 per , cent over the week ending
August 11, the statement indicated.
"It was expected that the ratio of
increase over August 11 would be
continued on the 18th, but the oc
currences of last week put a
damper on recruiting," said Mr.
Loree. "Nothing can be more de
structive than to introduce a feel
Ins of uncertainty into a situation
such as this."
, Roads represented at the confer
ence were those whicfa led the op
position when the national' body of
rail chiefs rejected President Hard
ing's two proposals for ending the
strike by submitting the seniority
issue to the railroad labor board.
Mr. Loree, saying that he spoke
for himself alone, later made the
following statement:
"You can quote me as saying I
stand where I stood from fhe start
Solidly against any surrender, and
it is a surrender on the part of the
roads to give back the strikers
their seniority."
W. w. Atterbury, vice-president
of the Pennsylvania system, told
newspaper men that the president of
the Delaware & Hudson spoke for
an or the eastern roads.
"Mr Loree speaks for the bunch,"
he said, "and I will back anything
he says."
T. DewItt Cuyler, chairman of the
association of railway executives,
said he had received a telegram to
day from Senator Borah urging him
to do all in his power to bring th
strike to an end this week. He
backed his Request with the declara
tion that the farmers of the coun
try were facing great financial loss
if transportation facilities were cur
tailed in the coming crop season. It
was reported that Mr. Cuyler did
not receive the telegram in time to
reply to Senator Borah today.
