Plot to Unite and Rule Social
ists Denounced.
Fourth Internationale Is Proposed
to Break Moscow Autocracy
and Set Vp "ew Party.
P4.RIS Jan. t. Lenlne's attempt to
rule and unite the socialists of the
world and control their policies
through the third Internationale of
Moscow is to be contested by the
.n. nr faction, of socialists.
This party occupies a middle position
between the extreme nsin., m
erate faction, of socialists and the
extreme left, or radical faction. It
was in order to organise their forces
Into a fourth Internationale that a
meeting- of the centrist socialise i
the world has been called in Vienna
cn FeBruary 22. next.
The center aocialista are dissatis
fied with both the second Internation
ale and the third Internationale of
Lenine. leaders of that faction say.
Lenlne Splitting Force
Joseph Gollomb. who claims to have
represented the socialist party of
America at a meeting in Berne. Switx
erland, December 6, which called a
meeting at Vienna next February to
form the proposed fourth Interna
tionale, declares that the socialists of
the world have become Impatient at
the conduct of Lenlne's third Inter
nationale of Moscow. The Russian
organization, he declares, "is devoting
itself chiefly to splitting the forces
of socialism and of the workers."
"Dominated by the chiefs of the
communist party of Itussla," Gollomb
alleges, "th third internatlonale is
trying to force on other countries a
programme, temper and tactics which,
whether good for Russia or not, takes
no account of differences of condi
tions throughout the world.
Hatred I Being Planted.
"Those socialists who do not accept
to the letter their ukases are de
nounced as traitors. The third in
ternatlonale is splitting socialist par
ties in every country, discarding
whole masses of -workers whose fi
and by dividing the trade union move
ment sows hatred between worker
delity to socialism has been proved
and worker."
Gollomb contends that both the
second Internationale, which existed
before the world war, and the third
Internationale are "mainly negative
In character and effect." The mem
bers of the second internatlonale, he
says, "have so limited, compromised
and forgotten the principles of so
cialism that there is nothing left of
them. As the conference at Berne
pointed out, they abandoned the work
ers during the war and by partici
pating in capitalist cabinets and
coalitions they have bent all their
energies toward patching the present
system instead of building a new one.
socialists want an aaequate inter
national organization to marshal ail
their forces and carry out a positive
upbuilding programme. At present
there is no satisfactory organiza
tion." Socialism Held Constructive.
Gollomb declares that fundament
ally socialism is a constructive move
ment and that the negative attitude
of the second and third Internationale
does not meet their need today and
the result has been general dissatis
faction with both of them. He asserts
that more than 8.500.000 voting so
cialists were represented at the Berne
conference which has called the meet
ing in Vienna and that most of the
delegates at Berne have been repre
sentative figures in international so
cialism for years.
The delegates of the socialist party
Of America were delayed in arriving,
but Gollomb says the party had de
clared itself officially in favor of the
action taken at Berne. The German
independents were represented by
Ledebour, Crispien and others, while
Jean Longuet and Paul Faure repre
sented the socialists of France. So
cialists of Austria and Switzerland
slso were represented at Berne.
'The possible formation of a fourth
Internationale is a matter for the
Vienna congress to decide." adds

erected near the mineral springs of
Saratoga, which were much frequent

Big Beaver, chief of one or the
Blackfoot tribes of northwestern
Montana, served as Mr. Proctor's
model for the statue. The statue will
be placed against a hillside, near a
pool of water, and the Indian is seen
in the" position of slaking his thirst,
one hand extended, and in a kneel

The tragedy of the affair was the
suicide of Commander Warren J.
Terhune, governor, against whom the
conspiracy was directed and who
ended his life just before the start
of the inquiry which absolved him.
Tribute to his administration is paid
by the enlisted men of the naval sta

widow to build a memorial for their

in the sending of the battleship Kan

Two days before the arrival of the

its close held for courtmartial on 26
charges by order of Secretary Daniels.
Governor Evans, at the close of the
inquiry, called the discontented native

Washington, Jan. 8. Advocates of an
inaugural ball have been digging
deep into .the history of such oc
casions, and perhaps they have found
sufficient justification for the revival
of this historic event in the lesson
of what happened when Andrew
Jackson undertook to substitute a
reception for the ball. "Old Hickory"
was fond of upsetting state customs
and he banned the Inaugural ball. A
reception after the inauguration was
the alternative, with a near-riot as
the result
And it begins to look like the his
toric ball In all of Its splendor, Is
to signalize the inauguration ' of
President Harding and Vice-President
Coolidge, notwithstanding the
well-known inclinations of the next
president and vice-president toward
the simplicity of other days. It is an
nounced that letters have been re
ceived from all parts of the United
States at the headquarters of the in
augural committee, requesting that
tickets be reserved.
Automobiles Replace Hacks,
Washington people are manifesting
the keenest interest in the plans for
an event abandoned at the last two
Inaugurations. Citizens' committees
are arranging the details so that all
the new president and "first lady"
will have to do will be to appear at
the state! hour and lead the grand
march. The mile-long string of
hacks will be missing and automo
biles in large numbers will supplant
the old horse-drawn vehicles, wnich
always have been a feature of other
similar occasions.
The possibility of the revival of the
inaugural bail has set the historians
to work, with the result of produc
ing some interesting reminiscences of
other inaugurations. It is found that
perhaps the most striking incident oc
curred in connection with the inaug
uration of Zachary Taylor in 1849.
President Taylor was a whig and
whig leaders, acting on the theory
that "to the victors belong the
spoils," decided on an all-whig in
augural ball. A whig committee of
managers was appointed and this
committee named a committee to
have charge of the ball. An ad
vertisement printed in the National
Intelligencer and signed by "one of
the Managers," explained that the
whigs" believed that as the whigs
elected Taylor, the whigs should have
the honor of managing the inaugural
Lincoln on Both Committees.
Another board of managers was
formed and announced a "National
inaugural ball, irrespective of party,"
and also advertised a committee. The
advertisements of the rival "man
agers" appeared side by side, but tho
singular fact was that both commit
tees contained the names of A. Lin
coln, afterward martyr president of
the United States; Colonel Robert E
Lee and Colonel Joseph E. Johnston,
later known In history as Confed
erate leaders who fought against
Lincoln and the Union.
Three balls were held inauguration
night. The whigs held forth !i
special dancing pavilion erected at
the city hall. The national inaugural
ball was held at Jackson hall, and
third ball, arranged in honor of the
visiting military companies, was held
at carusi s.
On the occasion of George Wash
ington's inauguration in New York
the president's levee was held, which
was the forerunner of the inaugural
ball. This was on May 7. 1789. From
a feminine point of view, the real
levee was that held by Mrs. Wash
ington on Friday, May 29. which may
be said to marK tne actual founding
of society.
Adams Bnll Magnificent.
John Adams' inauguration in 1797
was marked by a magnificent inaug
ural ball, hsld in the amphitheater at
Philadelphia on the night of March 4.
Jefferson refused to permit an in
augural ball. There was. then no
mistress of the White House. Mrs.
Doljy Madison, wife of the future
president of the United States, acted
as the hostess when there was need
of such a figure in offical entertain
ments. The Inaugural ball was revived at
the inauguration of James Madison,
at which time Dolly Madison became
"first lady" in her own right. It was
she who really began the making of
social history in the national capi
tal. As a result, her name lives in
history with the names of the pres
idents. Inaugural balls also were
held at both inaugurations of Pres
ident Monroe.
John Quincy Adams' inauguration
was marked by most brilliant festiv
ities. Mrs. Adams' many residences
in foreign capitals had equipped her
to take the leadership of society in
"Old Hickory" Jackson, as has been
noted, barred the inaugural ball, but
held a reception which almost re
sulted In a riot. The crowd filled
the White House and practically
wrecked several rooms.
Death Blights Two Events.
The brilliant Taylor inaugural was
followed by more simple ceremonies
for President Millard Fillmore, called
to the presidency by death. The
shadow of death also prevented an in
augural ball when Franklin Pierce
took office, but the event came back
again when James Buchanan was In
augurated .
A "union ball" with the south un
represented, marked Lincoln's first
inauguration, but the inaugural ball
returned in all its glory at the first
Grant inaugural. Civil war heroes
in their uniform were the feature of
the occasion.
The Hayes inaugural ball was
brilliant. After the assassination of
President Garfield, President Arthur
assumed office quietly. The Inaug
ural balls of both Cleveland admini
strations were splendid affairs, his
sister. Rose Elizabeth Cleveland, pre
siding at the first, and his wife, a
White House bride, at the second.
The Benjamin Harrison, McKinley
and Roosevelt inaugural balls were

isting haws.
At a meeting of the executive board
of the Oregon chapter of American
Association of Engineers, held In
the Tilford building headquarters
yesterday afternoon. engineering
features and their relation to the
session of the Oregon legislature

cussion. The services of the engi
neers in technical matters regarding
so-called antiquated statutes which
they wish revised and brought down
to date, were offered and it was an
nounced that a determined effort will
be made to obtain amendments to
some existing laws.
Percy Cupper, state engineer and
chairman of the legislative com
mittee of the Portland chapter, was
the chief speaker. He presented data
concerning proposed amendments
The secretary was Instructed to
send word to the promoters of the

Irrigation of 60,000 Acres of Priest
Rapids District in Abeyance
While Legislation Pends.
PROSSER, Wash., Jan. 8. (Spe
cial.) Irrigation of approximately
60,000 acres, embraced in the Priest
rapids irrigation district, will be held
in abeyance pending a suit that has
been filed in the Benton county court
by the Northeon Pacific railway,
which is resisting assessments levied
by th district against railway land.
Involving a total tax of about J4000.
Attorneys representing the plaintiff
ask the court to restrain the county
treasurer from collecting the assess
ment and to compel the officials of
the Irrigation district to come into
court and explain the various steps
incident to the organization of the
district. Particular complaint is di
rected against a fee of $4000 for legal
services by Moulton & Jeffrey of
Kennewick and $6000 for engineering
services during the year 1920.
Plaintiff charges that the pro
ceedings followed by the district
have not complied with the law. It
alleges that it understands it is the
purpose of the irrigation district to
enlarge and line the canal of the
Hanford Irrigation & Power company
and then to construct a higher, or
"first level." canal, from which it is
proposed ultimately to pump water
to a third canal to water a third unit.
Those who are in touch with the
project, which would follow the
Columbia river across the entire
north boundary of Benton county, ex
tending from Priest rapids through
to White Bluffs and Hanford toward
Richland, allege that the irrigation
district has been formed in the ex
pectation that the General Electric
company, which Is said to own the
power right and dam site at Priest
rapids, will be compelled by the court
to construct serviceable canals and
deliver an adequate supply of water
to the old Hanford irrigation district,
on account of prior obligations that
were assumed by the General Electric
company w.hen it obtained the Priest
rapids rigl)ts.
Complete Abolishment to Commis
sion of Appeals Never Favored,
Board Member Says.
That he had never been in favor of
a complete abolishment of the teach
ers' commission of appeals, but that
he had been driven to the support of
the present proposed change in the
teachers' tenure law by the uncom
promising attitude of the teachers
themselves, was the declaration of
George B. Thomas, member of the
school board, in outlining his position
He said that he wished to avoid
the unpleasantness and expense of
trials and for that reason favored do
ing away with the use of the com
mission of appeals except in cases
where a teacher was discharged by
less than a unanimous vote of the
five members of the board.
Tt Is inconsistent," he declared,
"that three men selected by a pre
siding judge should pass on what
five men elected by the people have
agreed upon.
"It has never been my idea entirely
to abolish the teachers' commission of
appeals." he said, "but rather to re
strict its jurisdiction to the cases of
those teachers dismissed by less than
unanimous vote of the five mem
bers of the school board. It is my
opinion that when five members of
the school board are unanimous in
their judgment that for the good of
the service a teacher should bo dis
charged and so state in an offlclul
vote while the board is in session
that no appeal should lie to the teach
ers' commission of appeals, but that
in case the board Is not unanimous
when the five members are in session,
then an appeal might be taken by the
discharged teacher."
