French and British Ambas
sadors Are on the
(reelings from President Hard
in; were given the Daughters of
the American Revolution at their
30th continental congress to
night, by Vice President Coolidge,
who said he had come at the di
rection of the president to ' bring
his greetings and his assurances
of interest in the patriotic work
of the soci-ty. " Other speakers
were Sir Auckland (leddes, the
British ambassador, and Jules J.
Jusserand. French ambassador.
Sir Auckland made a plea for
Anglo-American and allied unity.
"'The subtle poison to separate
these nations is the most dan
gerous propaganda afoot,' he
said. '"The only way to defeat it
is to give up talking about who
did the most to win the war. The
allies cannot afford separation
now any more than they could
during the war."
'Leadership toward world
peace lies in the hands of Am
erica." he said.
"Kvery nation would welcome
the seizure of that leadership by
America now."
The French ambassador ex
pressed the gratitude of France
to .the society for its care of
French war orphans. "We need
children more than gold or re
parations," he said, "and you
aved young France tor us." He
presented two Sevres vases and
a copy of Houdon's bust of Wash
ington as gifts of his government
to the society.
Changed Traffic Rules
Suggested in Portland
PORTLAND. Ore.. April 18.
Suggested traffic changes includ
ing one way traffic on several
down town streets, limitation of
parking in the congested area and
possible revocation of all for hire
stands will be placed before the
city council Wednesday, Mayor
Baker announced today. Com
missioner Mann expects to in
troduce an ordinance regulating
stages operating out of the city
and will ask the council to auth
orize a central terminal station
for use of all for hire cars now
located on stands in the down
town district.
Part in Break Between U. S,
And Colombia Is
bate on the Colombian treaty en
tered its final phase with Sen
atorstPoIndexter. Washington and
Townsend, Michigan, republicans,
speaking in opposition, and Sen
ators New, republican, Indiana;
and Williams, democrat, Missis
sippi, favoring ratifications.
Denying that the American gov
ernment instigated the revolution
which resulted in the separation
of Panama from Colombia in
1903, or that American troops
prevented Colombian troops from
landing at Colon, Senator Poin-
dexter characterized the treaty as!
a "proposal to pay Colombia
$25,000,000 without consideration
I to the United States."
Senator Townsend contended
that in event of repeal of the act
levying tolls on American tonnage
passing through the Panama
Canal similar freedom from tolls
under the treaty would have to
be accorded to Colombia.
Arguments of those opposing
ratification were described by
Senator 'New as large "looking
backward." He urged the sen
ate in its vote, set for Wednesday
to take the future into considera
tion. Senator Williams urged ratifi
cation as a matter of Justice to
Colombia, attacked the course of
the American government under
President Roosevelt with respect
to that country as "high handed"
and asserted "there was no prece
dent for recognition by the United
States in 1!03 of about 21 Pan
amanians, two or three negroes, a
few mules and a Chinaman."
Senator Poindexter announced
he could not follow Senator Lodge
and other administration leaders'
in supporting ratification now
after having been opposed to the
pact in 1917 for, he said, "it is
a mathematical certainty that if
they were right ten years ago we
are wrong now."
Discussion will continue to
morrow. Committed Suicide by

Labor Scale of $2.60
Effective at Chehalis
CH EH A LIS. Wash., April 18.
A new wage scale became effec
tive today at the local sawmills
with the basic wage tixed at $2.60
a day for common labor. All em
ployes from heads of the concern
to office men and laborers, are
affected by the reductions in
Operators of the plants said that
with the recent further declines in
the prices of lumber they w.ll
either have to cut labor and all
other costs to the bone or cease to
run their mills. Serious question
is raised as to whether, even with
the $2.60 base, the plants can con
tinue to run and break even, ow
ing to the great supply of lumber
for which no market is now avail
able and which must be p.led in

VANCOUVER. B. ".. April IS.
China is menaced by three
"enemies." article 21 of the league
of nations covenant, the Anulo
Japanese alliance and athe Lan-sing-lsh
I exchange of notes. Dr.
Wang, chief Justice of the su
preme court of China who is en
route to Geneva where he will en
gage in conferences on revision of
the league covenant, dec lared here
"China's first enemy." said Dr.
Wan, "is article 21 which lays
down the untenable doctrine of
so-called regional understand nus.
and which is not only a direct
challenge to Chinas integrity be.
cause of its interpretation, but
which is destructive of the league
itself, since it permits all member
powers to form pr.vate groups to
exploit in their own interests the
territories and waters of the
neighboring member powers.
China is determined to have this
article amended."
The Anglo-Japanese alliance
was characterized by Dr. Wang as
the "second enemy" and he said
he hoped to show during h s stay
in Canada that renewal of that al
liance "in any form whatsoever"
would tend to lead o a war "in
which China must necessarily par
ticipate on the side of the United
States, thus rendering nugatory

England, be ng absolved from par
ticipation in an American-Japanese
Intervention of a third power,
munitioned and equipped by one
of tbe belligerents, must make the
alliance apply to both signatories.
Dr. Wang declared.
The third "enemy," Dr. Wang
said, is the Lansing-Ishii exchange
