Bsrger And Other -leaders
Abase United States And
Chicago, Nov. 18. Notes taken by
government agents of addresses made
at a "peace rally" here yesterday
were to be' presented to United States
District Attorney Clyne today.
Victor Berger, William H. Lloyd, de
feated socialist candidate for senator
from Illinois, and others spoke before
"All socialists are pro-bolshevik,"
declared Berger. "Stand by your col
ors your flag your ideas, and by your
flag I mean the international flag."
When cheers and cries interrupted the
speaker, he said: "I am in no way op
posed to our flag," glancing at the
btars and' Stripes. '
"At the same time, the international
flag is the bigger of the two."
Berger was introduced as a man who
could aualifv as a good socialist "be
cause he can show his indictments."
"I can show four indictments," he
said. Berger is under indictment charg
ed with violations of the espionage act.
Irwin St. John Tucker "explained"
the United War Work campaign by
saying that contributions were sought
to keep the soldiers in irance irom
"imbibing socialism." .
"The soldiers arc in danger of be
coming intelligent." he said.
Conference Will Attempt To
Enjoin Telephone People
From Making Raise.
A conference between Attorney Gen
eral Brown, Assistant Attorney Gen
eral Bailey and members of the pnblie
service commission will be held tonight
to determine the final form which the
nctinn tn pomnel the Pacific Telephone
& Telegraph company to refrain from
increasing jts rates is to lane.
Proceedings will be instituted to en
join the company from collecting the
!ttn.nnarJ .ttinB in vinintinn c.t the Ore-
imiciivu .... ,
gon laws, but there Is a question as to
whether Postmaster uenerai nurwniB
aknnld 4H named in the complaint as
one of the defendants.
Members of the commission were call
ed into conference today by the gov
ernor, who said he desired to be in
formed as to what steps were being
taken to resist the attempt of the tel
ephone company to. ipcrease its rates.
Hi tnl,l iha e.otnmissionera he thought
they had the matter well in hand and
apparently tnere was numing ue wum
do to help.' .
Tha ..nnimission has .been advised
that the increase in rates was author
ized by Postmaster General wurieson.
Saturday night the commission sent
o lotto tn the telerjhone company, and
also a telegram to Postmaster General
Burleson, stating mat tne
'no longer recognized the necessity for
3. 10 and $15 connection
or service charges when new telephones
are installed or a patron moves
one address to another. These charges
were put linto effect September 1 by
order of the postmaster general as a
war measure to discourage the use of
tho telephone and thus save, labor and

toll -early today, following a night of
rioting resulting from an attempted
lynching. Troops rushed here shortly
after midnight apparently have thvs sit

Police believe others may have been
killed. Firing continued up to an early
hour today, efforts of the home guard
and police to restore order being una
vailing prior to the. arrival of troops
The mob . formed Sunday afternoon
and stormed the jail, seeking a negro
charged with shooting J. E. Childress
and Sheriff Flint and attacking Mrs.
fhildrosM. After difficulty, the unliee
drove tbv niob out of tlfo pail after
the negro sought had been soriouslj
wounded. Home guards wero Ihen oir
dered out. Later a report circulated,
that the negro shot was not the man
wanted and by nightfall tho mob re
formed Hnd marched, on the jail.
Firo companies turned hose on the
rioters. Firing followed.
The mob quickly overpowered the
guard and again forced entrance to the
jail. After an hour the mob left, ap
parently not finding the negro. .
Rioters then scattered over the city,
breaking up into small groups.

Predicted That Murphy's Days
As Warden Of Prison
That Charles A. Murphy, warden of
the state, penitentiary, is slated for dis
missal, is the' opinion being expressed
today in state bouse circles as a result
of th statement made by Governor
Withycome that he is investigating
into the reason for the big increase in
the cost of maintaining the prison of
Prior to the election ,it wa freely
rumored that Warden Murphy would
be. dismissed after the election because
of the friction between" the warden
and Parole Officer Joe Keller. The pa
role officer spends a large part of his
time in the governor's office and is
eonceded to have more influence with
the chief executive than almost any
other appointee. For that reason, when
Keller accused Warden Murphy of be
ing bohim. a frameup ta connect Kel
ler with the prison parole-selling scan
dal, it was predicted that Murphy's
days as warden of tho penitentiary
The governor stated that he was in
vestigating the increased cost of 'the
institution and if he found the war
den was responsible h would get a new
warden. Report has it that Frank Da

This action was taken at the end of

if possible, before military authority

main, declared that the worst thing
which can happen to the national guard
is to cull them out on strike duty as
it arouses the enmity of the unions.
But the governor insisted that there,

to respond to the orders of the chief
