Overtures for Peace Made by
Socialist Premier.
Budapest Too Hot for Discredited
Dictator American Factor in
Forcing His Retirement.
VIENNA. Aug. 2. (By the Associated
Press.) Overtures for peace with the
allies have been made by the new so
cialist government of Hungary which
ham been set up in succession to the
Bela Kun regime.
Bela Kun, who resigned his virtual
dictatorship, has been furnished a safe
conduct by the allies and is expected
1o seek refuge here, as it is felt that
h. . life .would be endangered if he
remained in Budapest.
The peace overtures were made by
Jacob Weltner, president of the sol
diers and workers' soviet of Hungary.
.Arriving in Vienna from Budapest, Herr
"Weltner asked Colonel Cunningham,
leading representative of the allies at
Vienna and -the other allied officials
. here, to recognize the new government
and to treat for peace.
Cabinet ot W holly v.
-The new Hungarian cabinet is pre-J
sided over by Jules Peidll, who was for- 1
merly minister of the People's Welfare
in the Count Karolyi cabinet. The cabi
net contains provisionally many mem
bers of the former Bela Kun ministry.
The new cabinet is made up as fol
lows: Premier Jules Peidll.
Minister of foreign affairs Peter
Agoston. .
-Minist'-r of war Joseph Haubrich.
Minister of justice Paul Garami.
Minister of welfare Alexander Gar
bat. Minister of commerce M. Dovohak.
"Minister of education Stephen Szabo.
Minister of home affairs Karl Payer.
Minister of agriculture Joseph Mis
tics. Minister of food M. Knittelhofer.
Premier Peidll is said to be a cour
, ageous man of simple habits. He has
been a typographer, an editor and a
model worker.
Holdovers May A'ot Stay.
Minister of War Haubrich, formerly
was chief of police at Budapest and is
reputed to be an anti-communist. Min
ister of Justice Garami and Minister of
Kd ucation JSzabo were in the Karolyi
Persons in touch with the situafion
nt Budapest said it was their under
standing that the members of the Kun
ministry holding over" under the re
construction were doing so in order to
cave themselves and their supporters
And they probably would not remain in
office long.
Bela Kun's resignation followed im
mediately the receipt of news from the
front, telling of the rout of the Hun
garian red -army, which created con
sternation in Budapest. Kun. at a
meeting of te soviet socialists, became
tiale of face an-1 with his back to the
wall, declared:
"Very well. If you demand it, I must
xesisrn. 1 made the best fight I could."
Klin's Retirement Hastened.
Captain Thomas C. Gregory, the
"United States food administrator in
this region, is credited with a large
thare in the hastening of Bela Kun's
retirement. Captain Gregory has ar
ranged for food relief for. Budapest.
He is bringing up supplies from the
Banat region, and also sending them
down the Danube from Austria.
The crisis at Budapest was due to
the combined effect of the allied note
issued at Paris last Sunday warning
the Hungarians that they must set up
n.tru'.y representative government, and
the successful advance of the Rou
manian army.
The soviet military "forces were said
to have been reduced to 40,000 unwilla
i;.g soldiers who lacked ammunition
i.nd who were harassed by the guerilla
v.-arfare of peasants. This force was
thoroughly defeated today. The Hun
garians were said to have surrendered

Iowa by sending orders to all county
attorneys to meet here next Friday to
discuss ways and means of fighting
profiteers. The governor's action fol
lowed an announcement last night that
he would "use every means available
to reduce the cost of living."
The meeting of the attorneys will
be for a two-fold purpose first to
gather information concerning food
profiteering and second to acquaint
each prosecutor with his power in such
It was said at the state house today
that the meeting probably would result
in special grand jury investigations.
Grand Juries probably will be' asked
to especially Investigate charges that
dealers are limiting the amount of cer
tain foods placed on the market and
forming pools, thus violating the law
and keeping up prices.
Conference of Governors and Attorney-Generals
DETROIT, Aug. 2. A conference of
governors and attorney-generals of the
states to coisider practical ways and
means of dealing with alleged prof
iteering in foodstuffs was-suggested
to Governor Cox of Ohio in a telegram
sent this morning by Attorney-General
Groesback of Michigan.
"Private combines controlling neces
saries of life and creating fictitious
prices," Mr. Groesback telegraphed,
"must be met by public combines hav
ing, for their object thi stabilizing of
trade conditions and -the prevention of
injustice as between the dealers and
customers. Investigations alone will
not accomplish this end. Constructive
policies must be formulated and put
into operation by joint action of a
number of states so as to bring about
effective national and state legislation."

Convention Is Disapproved.
ington, Aug. 2. A movement to organ
ize a Chamberlain-for-presldent clue
among returned soldiers in Oregon1 was
disapproved by the Oregon senator In a
letter to an admirer in Portland, who
was lately an officer in the American
expeditionary forces. , The letter re
ceived by the senator said that such a
proposal had come from returning
world war veterans in Portland.
In replying Senator Chamberlain
made it plain that he intends seeking
re-election to the senate and that
therefore he is not a presidential can
didate. . He saye:
"I cannot tell how much I appreciate
your very cordial letter. I feel greatly
flatterft by the information which it
contains, that you are being urged by
discharged soldiers to take up the mat
ter of organizing what would be called
a "Chamberlain-f or-president' club, and
I wish it might be nossible for me per
sonally to thank each one of the boys
who have eo generously expressed such
a wish.
"The mention of my name some days
ago in connection with the presidency
was entirely without my knowledge or
consent, and while very naturally I felt
nattered by the suggestion, I have dis
couraged -rather than encouraged it.
The office is one which ahould seek the
man, particularly at a time when there
are so many serious reconstruction and
other problems to be solved as a result
of the world war. In other words, both
the great parties should look the field
over and select the men as party lead
ers who are best qualified for the great
"While the public attention haa not
been centered upon any individual
either in the democratic or republican
party for national standard-bearer
there will in due course be a crystal
lization of sentiment and the national
conventions when they meet will no
doubt select the men who in the emer
gency have been singled out because of
their services for the particular work
that will rail to their hands. Probably
these men will be selected by both par
ties from closely contested states
where there is a large electoral vote.
and Oregon is too remote from these
centers to be eeriously considered In
this connection.
"To be perfectly frank with you.
much as I appreciate the suggestion
made by you and the gallant boys who
are returning from victorious battle
fields overseas, I think it would be in
advisable to organize the proposed club
to advance my name for the presidency.
from a distinctly personal standpoint
it i were to consent to allow my name
to be urged in this connection, it would
naturally and properly interfere with
the ambition which I really have to
serve Oregon again in the senate, and
would place me in the category of a
miscellaneous candidate.
"Permit me. therefore, to express the
hope that my good friends will not
carry out the suggested programme
and I want them to know how much
1 appreciate1 their and your great cour
tesy and Kindess to me."
