It will control coal production of ap
proximately 5,000,000 tons a year.'
'Coal Is our basic Industry," he
says. "It Is more valuable than gold.
I am an optimist. Organisation, mo

vices In the coal Industry will pay
as large dividends today as at any
"I think that unless we can get
the miners back to a 48-hour wee'.:
we are going 'to have difficulty meet

Warren of Wyoming Against Coves
nt and Say League Is "Not
Greater Than the V. 8."
Washington, Oct. 18. 'Dispatch of .
additional American troops to En- ,
rope for the ultimate purpose of po
licing Silesia during the plebiscite
proposed in the peace treaty formed
the text of another chapter of sen
ate debate on the treaty.
The authority of the war depart
ment to take such a step was ques
tioned by Senator TOrandegee,) repub
lican, Connecticut, and the scarcity
of information available to the sen
ate on such subjects was deplored by
Chairman Wads worth of the military
committee. The department' action
was defended by Senator 'Nelson, re
publican, Minnesota, and others.
"Nobody knows under what au
thority these troops are being sent.
said Senator Brandegee.
Senator Wadsworth stated: "I was
given to understand that the dispatch
of this force was due to some ar-
rangernent made v'by tie 'American '
peace commission at 'Paris. It was
intimated also that the authority for
sending them springs fron the fact
that technically we still are at war
with Germany." . '
Senator Nelson interrupted to sug
gest that the plebiscite was to de
termine whether upper Silesia should
become a part of Poland and added:
"They simply want our troops
there to see that there is a fair pleb
iscite, that's all. Unless the senator
opposes the establishment of Poland
as a free country he ought not ob
ject to this.-;
Senator Hitchcock, democrat!,. Ne
braska, said the president had the
power to reinforce the American ex
peditionary force along the Rhine
and said It would be decided whether
they should go to Silesia. He added
that under the treaty Germany was
required to pay the expense of polic
ing that country during the plebi
Senator Hitchcock declared the
criticism of the Silesia expedition
appeared to be another attack on
the administration. He added that
the treats stipulated that troops for
the Silesian plebiscite must be sent
within 15 days of the treaty's ratifi
cation and that therefore the dis
patch of the troops at this time was
Senator Borah, republican, Idabo,
Interjected that the statement of Sen
ator Hitchcock gave the fundamental
reason for his opposition to the
treaty. "American troops will be con
stantly crossing the ocean, , if U is
ratified.1' he said. 1 ;
"I believe that if the treaty is rati-
fled and tle league of nations put"
into effect," retorted Senator JHitch-'
cock, "there will be a reduction of
armament and maintenance of world
This treaty can't be ratified with
out a reservation . providing that
American troops shall not be used
without consent of congress," de
clared Senator Lenroot, Wisconsin.
'If the , senator from Nebraska
doesn't know that, he will find It
out." . .
Making his first senate speech on
the treaty, Senator IWarren, republi
can, Wyoming, announced he could
not support the league of nations
covenant until it bad been "Ameri
canized" by reservations. He deplor
ed any. tendency to undermine the
nation's prestige and said be .could
not agree with President Wilson
when he declared the lea'gue was
greater than the American government.
