Gompers Attacked By Blan
- ten For Opposition And De
, parteent Of Labor Said To
ge Nest Of "Anarchy."
Washington, Jan. 84. Enactment
of anti-sedition legislation was urged
before the house rules committee to
day by Representative smiuun, u
ocat, Texas, and Davey. 'democrat,
Ohio. The Texas member vigorously
attacked President Gompers of the
American Federation of Labor for his
opposition to such legislation and
charged that the department of la
bor was "honeycombed with anarchy"
Asserting that Mr. Gompers had
not been patriotic during the war, Mr.
Blanton charged that when Provost
Marshal General Crowder issued his
'work or fight" order the labor lead
er openly opposed It, declaring he
"would call a revolution." Blanton
added that six thousand strikes occur
red In this country during the war
and that at times President Wilson
had to "compel men to work."
"Congress must either pass a sedi
tion law which would squelch anar
chy or else bear the mark of having
- bowed to Gompers," , Mr. Blanton
i aaid. He added "it is simply a ques
' Hon of whether you want to be re
. elected." .
"Attacking the department of labor,
Blanton said he hoped the republicans
would be victorious in .the coming
presidential election "if -it is impossi
ble to obtain a democratic cabinet of
ficer who stands for Americanism."
"The republicans will win any way"
Chairman Campbell interjected.
"Not If you vacillate on this bill,"
Representative Blanton retorted. 'The
people won't stand for you bowing to
Gompers." , .
Representative Davey, who introduc
ed Attorney General Palmer's antl-se-dition
bill last November, told the
committee he was a "friend of labor
until It Joins hands with ranarchy."
Davey criticized the American Fed
eration of Labor for participation In
the Boston poltee-'strtkeT but said Mr.
Gompers was the dominant influence
which stood between organized labor

Close To London Powers
As To Be Connecting Link.
W ashington, Jan. 24-Charging that
Herbert Hoover was "one of the go
between of Colonel House and mem
bers high in the British government
during the negotiations preceding the
entry of the United States into the
war," Senaor Reed, democrat, Missou
ri, launched a vigorous attack today In
the stnate against what he
ised as Mr. Hoover's "semi-promoted
boom for president."
Senator Reed said Mr. Hoover .
sa close to the British government that
"he constituted a convenient connect
ing link" and challenged any member
of the senate who doubted his state
menu o introduce a resolution of In
Sever Voted Here.
Declaring that Mr. Hoover "served
a tutelage all of his adult life" in the
British service, Senator Reed said
Hoover "never cast a vote in the Un
ited States, 'unless he had voted since
this war to qualify himself."
"When he was asked as to what
party he belonged he said he thought
he was a 'liberal' " said Senator Reed.
"Apparently he hasn't been in the
United States enough to know the
names of the political parties in this
country and has to designate himself
as a 'lfberal', a British political or
ganization." "I think Mr. Hoover's nomination
would put the finishing touch to the
League of Nations and that :the
league would surrender the sovereign
ty of the world to the British em
pire," the senator continued.
, Would Give Control.
"In addition to her own votes Great
Britain would control the votes of
Portugal, Freece, France and Belgium
In the league, Senator Reed said, ad
ding that Belgium "was in no con
dition to resist Great Britain's im
perious will" and that France, accord
ing to high French officials, had ad
mitted that she was dependent on
the British army and navy for pro
tection against German attack.
Senator Reed said that if a Brit
ish controlled League of Nations were
to be established, this country ought
to have as nearly a British sublect as
possible to represent It "so why not
Referring to reports that Mr.
Hoover made $10,000,000 before he
was 30 years old. Senator Reed said
he was a "get rich quick" and turn
ing to Senator Lodge, the republican
leader, declared that If Mr. Hoover
were nominated for the presxiemiy
the only thing that could save the
republican party from defeat was for
it "to nominate J. Rufus Walllngford"
"Then we'll have two horses bred
alike," he added.

Representative Kitchin, of North Car

Sareful consideration should be
given before "taking the moneys of
the people to provide funds for Eu
rope," Mr. Mondell said, adding that
not all the sob stories about Europe
were to be believed.
Referring to his opposition to the
aeroplane appropriation, the republi
can leader said some one had said
Great Britain was expending $35,
000,000 on her air service.

"then a resolution ought to be pass

the government of the Netherlands is
declard inclined to the belief that Its

,The Dutch press does not expect any
belligerent action by the allied powers
and the government la believed to
share this view on theory that the de
mand for the former monarch's extra

political clamor in the allied states and
was not intended to be pressed by the
statesmen who signed it.
The reference to the league of na

explained to the correspondent today
by a high official as meaning that Hol

case beyond even the power of the
