The reas sembling of parliament today with all the ceremony and brilliance, of pre-war days attracted thousands of persons Who gathered- In the streets early for a glimpse of the pageant. : In the upper chamber members of the commons and the house of lords were1 crowded, to gether with as many of the peers and peeresses and other distin guished personages as could crowd Into the building. Klhjc tmlemn Violence, King George and Queen Mary occupied the throne, while to the right of the king was the Prince of Wales. In his , message the king touched on , some problems with which the British empire is faced unemployment, Ireland, India and the Near East. Chief among these, he put un employment, whivn - ascribed as ' due to a world-wide restriction of trade, but" the solution of which did not lay entirely with parlia ment. """" : Violence in Ireland was strong ly condemned by the king, who declared 'neither Irish unity nor Irish self-goTernment can be at tained by this means." Referring to the arrangements for making effectiTe the govern ment's Irish act. which he said were well adTanced. the king ex pressed the hope that the major! tr of the Irish people would re pudiate violence and co-operate in a measure cbnferrlng self-government,' leading to Irish unity by constitutional means.

It could not be cured by legislative means, tut the minis ters were striving to revive trade and prosperity and the govern ment was ' endeavoring to assist those ont of employment. tie called for co-operation by labor and capital, employers and em ployes. In the debate in the house of commons, former Premier Asnuith . - tttrkl the government's Irish, Mesopotamlan and financial poli cies. Premier Lloyd George contend ed that the Irish rebellion was be ing effectively dealt with.

The decision, he added, had been taken in the in- terpttf nf thA rf-tablishmet Of law and order In Ireland. Mr. Lloyd George explained that there was enough In the re- .

AUGUSTINE. FlaJ Fob. 15. President-elect Harding today finally review his cabinet decis ions with his campaign manager and prospective postmaster gene ral. Will H. Hays, and received from a member of President Wil- son's peace delegation assurances that no agreenu-nt for! cancel la- lion of the allied war d-lt was made at Versailles. The conference with Mr. Hayr generally interpreted as conclu sive evidence that the Republi can national ..chairman is to be come a member of the cabinet. Is understood to have covered every feature of thr cabinet sit uation, as well as questions of policy. The president-elect said their talk omitted none of the problems facing the next admin istration. Details of what happened at Versailles as to cancellation of the ten billion dollar war debt were given Mr. Harding by Thos. W. Lamont. member of the Mor gan banking firm and a fiscal attache of the peace commission. In a statement latr he denied recent stories of a mysterious agreement to wipe the war debt cf f the books, .and said he had assured the preKldent-elet his administration would be "as free I untrammeled as air," in dealing with the question. Mr. Lamont's statement at tracted attention, because of his intimate knowledge of the Ver sailles negotiations and because his firm is the principal fiscal agent in this country for the debtor powers. Mr. Harding is understood to have discussed with him his own proposal for convert ing the debts Into negotiable pa per. Mr. Lamont said he found I the views of the president-elect "sane and reassuring." Tomorrow Mr. Harding will continue his consultation with Mr. Hays and expects also to see Harry M. Daugherty, his pre cenvention campaign manager, who is understood to be slated for attdrneyvg?neral. Announcement was road-; that the president-elect and Mrs. Har ding would bold a reception to morrow night to- other guests of the fashionable hotel which is their home here. The statement of Mr. Lamont who came at Mr. Harding's invi tation, follows: 'I found that President-elect Harding wished to ask me about certain phases of the Internation al financial situation which had come under my observation dur ing my attendance at the peace conference at Paris in 1919. found too that Senator Harding has been giving serious thought to the situation and ' I may say that his view Is both sane and reassuring. He began by dis claiming any ability as a finan cier, but I must say that many of his suggestions were very prac tical and showed the result of careful, cool and friendly analysis. "I was able to assure the president-elect that there Is no truth in the statement being repeated that at the peace conference there was some secret understanding between President Wilson and his advisors and the French and Brit ish representatives. "It Is only fair to say that from start to finish President Alison and his advisers opposed vigor ously and finally any such sug gestion of cancellation of the al lied indebtedness to the Lnited States."

The senate today adopted four of nine remaining amendments to the Fordney bill as recommenued by its finance committee. Senator McCumber. Republican. Xorth Dakota, in charge of the bill, said prospects were good for a vote tomorrow. When it be came apparent that final action could not be had tonight. Mr. Mc Cumber sought to conclude con- : federation of all committee amendments. This plan suffered defeat. Among amendments accepted was the substitute sugar sched ule proposed by Senator Smoot. Republican. Utab. The amend ment would place the tarirf at one cent ier pound In addition to the present duty of the same amount. Another amendment adopted would provide rates on butter and butter substitutes, eight cents per pound; cheese and cheese substi tute 23 per cent ad valorem. fresh milk two cents per gallon and cream five cents per gallon. " Senator" Thomas. .Democrat. Colorado, alone voted against the Smoot sugar duty, while 67 were recorded for It. In Joining with supporters of the bill to put over the sugar amendment. Democrat ic opponents claimed to have won a point, which, it was said, will eventually cause trouble for the measure's proponents. The near unanimous votes, it was declared, will force the senate conference committee to hold out to the end against house conferees. The house refused three times to add sugar to the commodities for whch protection was afforded. Trite arguments and acrimon ious charges as, well as logic, characterized the. debate. Sena tor Williams, Democrat. Mississip pi, held the attention of 70 sena tors for more than an hour in an attark on the tariff bill that sparkled with wit and sarcasm. The senator charged proponents of the emergency tariff with seek ing to legislate money out of the pockets of the public Into the pockets of those benefitted. He declared the tariff provisions on sugar were such as to make any industry profitable, and added: "I can raise bananas in New York If you will give me a tarirf. I'd sell them for a dollar a ba nana. That would be profitable ir the tariff was high enough." As he waded deeper and deeper Into the arguments against the measure, he moved across the aisle to where Senator Smoot sat. Mr. Smoot finally gave way and in the place from which the sen ate many times has beard preached the doctrines of high tariff there was delivered an op posing argument. It caused a rar f laughter, but did not disturb the speaker. INSURES OPERATION OF PENITENTIARY PLANT ANT JAPANS P. E.

The bill probably will call for an addition al authorization of 6. 500.000. the remainder of the $9,000,000 available being represented by the 12,500.000 authorized by the peo ple for the Roosevelt highway contingent upon an equal appro priation from the government. Dr. Edwin Sherwood, scholar, pastor and friend, was laid to rest yesterday after a service of sol emn and beautiful tributes at the First Methodist church at 2:30 o'clock. The magnanimity of the life of the man whose passing was being reverenced seemed to pervade the entire 'atmosphere of the church wherein was gathered friends and co-workers to pay their last trib ute to this masterly brother, Ed win Sherwood. The large and beautiful floral offerings seemed to breathe the story of purity and fidelity of this great life An organ prelude was played by Also two bills will be introduced I Lucile Ross after to provide for the construction of the Roosevelt highway, the bills to supplant the bill recently re considered by the senate and sent back to committee.

According to the line-up given out by Coach Hen dricks last night, Gosser is moved to forward, replacing kvan Jones. It Is not known how long this combination will continue. The Salem five bas not been defeated this season and Is in ex cellent shape for tonight's con test. McMinnville has passed a fairly successful season so far and a fast fight Is predicted by the Salem coach. An added attraction of the game tonight is the wrestling matches which the Salem high wrestling club Is to stage between county, any single county or an, j group of counties to form road districts and vote bonds or levy taxes for highway construction purposes by vote of the people. The district would be a municipal corporation and not subject to the constitutional limitations on bond issues or tax levies. Relative to ine Roosevelt highway the plan Is to organize the coast counties into a road district. The other bill applies particu larly to the Roosevelt highway and would allow these counties, formed into a municipality, to match the $2,500,000 previously authorized by the people, thereby stepping into the shoes of the gov ernment as far as matching the money is concerned.

A young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert A. Olson of this city met with a peculiar accident yester day which will disHgure her rnr lire. The child was attacked by a large rooster. With his spurs and beak he tore the child's cheek so badly that a number of stitches had to be used by the doctor who attended her to close the wound. The girl was rescued from the rooster's onslaught by her moth er, who. hearing her cries, beat the fowl off. The farmers who have con-i tracts' with the state of Oregon for the growing of flax this year need not have any fears that their contracts will not be lived up to on the- part of the state abso lutely. There are now 26 of these far mers, and they have contracted to crow 741 acres of flax this 1 rear. This is more than twlcs the acreage contracted for by the state last year. D. E. Thomason. or the Turner neighborhood, who has been making the contracts. has driven over 800 miles this season in this work, and he said that he could easily have con tracted ror 2000 acres of flax with reliable farmers, and farm ers who knew how to grow flax in the right manner to produce the best fiber. The state is to pay this year $55 a ton for pulled flax. $40 a ton for that cut with a binder, and $25 for that cut with a mow er. Mr. Thomason has been oblig ed - to make small acreage con tracts, the highest being 30 acres, and there are only six of these; though he bas been offered con tracts from several farmers for 150 acres and upward. He does not wish to make any promises, but he hopes to be able to Increase the acreage a little yet to the full limit of the amount of: available money for handling the crop. . Insures Operation in 1022. These contracts Insure the op eration" of the flax plant at the penitentiary through the whole or 192Z. for there is flax straw now unworked at the penitentiary that Is at least two years old. Mr. Thomason believes the op eration of the penitentiary plant will, le permanent: that it will be found that no other Industry is as suitable for the working of, the forces at that institution: and that this will result in the instal lation of spinning machinery for the making of seine twine and sack twine. , He hlmeelf has bnen growing flax ever since the flax plant at the penitentiary has been in op eration, and he believes that the industry there has been success ful, notwithstanding many mis takes and many drawbacks on ac count of dry seasons, etc.. etc. i If Mr. Thomason Is correct in t his idea that the industry at the penitentiary is to be a perma nent one. and with the spinning of twines, it will surely prove of great good to the farmers of this section, to a coming great manu facturing Industry, and to those who! have been obliged to pay profiteering prices for seine and sack ' twines.

Berry was working in one of the wards when he made his get away. Officials here bcli-ve he may be on his way to Califor nia.

These were the bills Increasing the salary of the state school su perintendent from '$3000 to $4.- 000 a year, and the measure In creasing the salary of the state corporation commissioner from $3000 to $3600 a year. Both passed the senate, having been In troduced In the upper house.

The bill was Introduced over the signatures of the American Legion -delegation of the house and was: Indorsed by the state executive committee of the legion. It Is predicted the measure will be defeated la the senate. Spurred on by eloquent appeals, based very largely on patriotism and the threat of Japanese domi nation within a few year unless restrictive measures are taken by the state.. and on the other hand,' facing the challenge that enact ment of the legislation would se riously embarass the United States government and particularly the state department in a program' to which President-elect Harding has already agreed, some of the mem bers were utterly at aea on the question when the debate ended.

' The experiences of California and Mexico with the . Japanese problem were detailed by Leonard in urging the passage, of the bin. In conclusion he reminded the members that not only the eye? of their constituents, but the eyes of the entire world were focused on Oregon today to see what move this state will make.
