Provides That All State Printing

Salem, Jan. 15. Bailey, of Multno

Its title Is "A bill for an net regulat

that nil printing done by or for the

Allied Printing Trades Council label,
save and except certificates of ap
pointment and election to ofllec, and
that no stato officer shall accept any
printing excopt that' hereinbefore ex

Such Action Would Be In Violation of
the Monroe Doctrine President to
Call a Conference of Leading Con
gressmen, Washington, Jan. 15. Although the
German government formally denies
seeking to ncquire Colombia's Inter
est in the Panama canal, there is no
denial ot (ho fuct that a syndicate
largely made up of German capital
ists has been formed In Europe for
the purpose of purchasing the proper
ly March 5, as soon as the option of
the United States expires.'
Minister Hart, of Bogota, has re
ported to tho state department that
the influence of European represen
tatives including those of Germany,
has beon exerted to prevent Colom
bia from signing the canal treaty and
this Is tho chief cause of Colombia's
Insistence upon an annual rental of
$600,000. Colombia expects either to
bring the United States to these
terms, or to make a better bargain
with European capitalists.
This is admitted by Herron, who al
Gon confirms tho report that Germa

to break the will of Jacob S. Rogers,
the millionaire locomotive builder of
Patersou, was commenced In earnest
today whon tho suit of Mrs. Virginia
Helnlsch, of this city was called for

Helni3ch charges deception In tho
persuasions used to Induce her to sign

heirs, She also, charges her former
counsel with deception In that he did
not properly enlighten her as to the
purport of the release she was pur-
suaded to sign. On these grounds she
ordoavors to have set aside the pro
bate of the will. The executors deny
all allegations of fraud and a. bitter
contest Is likely to be the outcome.
