Several Of Most important
Problems Of Initial Ses

(United Press staff correspondent)
Paris, Jan. 16,-rTho -associated del
egates were working at full speed to.
day 'to got everything iry readiness for
the formal opening of tho full peace
oongrcsis Saturday afternoon. Several
of the most important problems upon
which the initial sossi'on hinges remain
ed unsolved. Among these were:
Acceptance of the French outline for
the method of operation.
Fixation of the status of the Monte
negrin delegate. .
Determination of whethor tho Rus
sian soviet government shall bo repre

Decision as tSo the manner of ac

Order modified
Although the fivo principal powers
adopted a resolution to limit news of
the session to the orficiai communique,
it' was believed today that, iu view of
the concert of protest, the mutter would;
be re-opened and possibly modified.
The French proposal that the con
ferences .bo of the gtar chamber order
and that all information be confined
to a daily official communique, creat
ed consternation among the newspaper
Correspondents who lost no time in go
ing on record with their objections, it
was expected that only such informa
tion would be omitted as would be con
sidered iprejudjcinl to the interests un

feared this would prevent tho acquisi
tion of details from the delegates and
would tie up all tho sidjlighU which
mi ht ibe of inlerest to the piiblic.
They organized a special committee
of American and British correspond
ents, who made protest to President
Wilson and premier Lloyd-George
against the aliogod violation of the

questions, tout Premier Oemcnceau,
foreseeing the danger of the conference
stringing out over a iporiod longer tftan
the war itself, interposed and won his
point that only4he interested nation
should Ibe present for tlie discussions.
The question of ' representation for
the Russian soviet is not considered to

the plan.

Tbss Presezt 'AarcsL
In its session of four aid one half
days there has been introduced Into the
house 42 bills. All have eome up for
second reading and referred to proper
committees for assignment.
One of the bills introduced this morn
ing iby Schuobel of Oregon City will
probably cause considerable discussion
when it comes up tne thirl time tor
final passage. This is the Bhuobel bill
providing for n increase in the in
heritance tax that will bring to the
state about five times the amount of
tho present law. , .
According to figures obtained iby Mr.
Shudbel, from July 1, 1917, to July 1,
1918, the stater received $&1,000 in in
heritance taxes. ;If the Shucbel bill
goes through, on the game proportion,
the state would receive iaJ3,00O.
The proposed amendment to the in
heritance tax law provides that the ex
cess above $10,000 of each estate in
lieu of tax on individual bequests and
inheritances be as follows: Between
$10,000 and $23,000, one per cent ; be
tween $25,000 and $50,000, one and ono
half por eont and a gradual increase
until .between half a million ana one
million, the tax would ibe ten per cent.
Bequests or inheritance received oy
'brother, sister, unele, aunt, nieco,
nephew or any linoal descendant of the
same must pay an aditional inherit
ance tax as follows: Between $500 and
$3000, ono per cent; between $3000 and
$3000, two per cent and gradual in
crease until should tho amount be more
than $100,000, the tax would be 5u per
cent ' - ;
Non resident aliorts would he oblig

Imperialism Btepa Out
By Henry Wood
Paris, Jan. 16. Italy has abandoned
its imperialistic program and definite
ly accepted the British and America
ideas of democratic peace settlement.)
That was the interpretation in some
diplomatic quarters today of the resig-i
nation of the entire Italian cabinet
late yesterday.
Italy's territorial ambitions have
constituted one of the stumbling blocks
in tne peace conferences. The old school
Italian diplomats gt-olidly clung to the
determination that the entire program
of poliical and territorial expansion
should ibe carried out. rhe more demo
cratic memlbcrs of the government conn
soiled various degrees of modification.
This led to a ministerial crisis which
reached its climax yesterday.
Foreign Minister Sonnino was rec
ognized as the leader of the clique op
posed to any modification of the pro
visions of the London pact. His atti
tude resulted in the resignation of Min
ister Missolati, who held tho portfolio
of military and war pensions, and the
threatened resignation of other liberal
Can't Be Superseded Now
The understanding was reached in
Italian .political circles some time ago
that the solution of the problem would
be the ousting of Sonnino, it was re
ported. In view of the fact that Sonnino is
now a duly accredited delegate to the
peace cong-ress, it is doubtful whether
he can be superseded. There is no
dorfbt, however, that his attitude in
tho conferences will e greatly lutiu-
enccd by the cabinet resignation and
that. .hp., will. not feel disposed to pur
sue his original 'course regarding the
London pact.
In a general way, Italy ,to date has
been aligned-, with France in the gon
eral policies of political and territorial
expansion;, Italy now appears to have
abandoned Fiance and climfted into tne
American band wagon. ; , ;
PoliHcsass Haven't A
Look-in When It Comes To
For the man who is looking for a po
litical job, Tho Dalles in Wasco county,
is no place to go. The women seem to
have tho call in that particular part of
the state, as just at present they are
holding down the following political
plumbs: '
Representative to the 30th legislative
assembly Mrs. Alexander Thompson.
City attorney for The Dalles Mi3S
Celia Ga vin.
Privato secretary for Mrs. Thompson
for the present legislature, Miss Celia
City treasurer for The Dalles Mrs.
Mabel C. Ellis.
Seorotary of The Dalles Chamber of
Commerce Mrs. Winnie Bradcn, form
erly of Polk county.
And it was only a year or so ago
that three women wcro serving on tho
board of education for The Dalles.
All of which indicates that Tho
Dalles with a coming population of
about 6000, is also a coming city bo
sides being a most extremely progres
sive city.
Mrs. Alexander Thompson is now
serving her second term as a member of
the legislature. For the 1917 legisla
ture she defeated ono of tho leading
renublicans of that section with a ma
jority of 214 and for the 1919 legisla
ture the majority was larger wun omj
40 per eent vote. She is a democrat
and before Mrs. Thompson was elected
in 1910 it was generally conceded that
a Democrat didn't even have a look-in
when it eame to running for tho legis
lature from Wasco and Hood itivcr
counties. They didn 't, but that was bo
foro Mrs. Thompson decided to run tot
tho office. ' .
Besides taking a general interest in
laws for the betterment of educational
institutions, during the 1917 legislature
Mrs. Thompson introduced and was in
strumental in securing tho 'passago of
thrra imnortant bills, as follows:

The senate passed its first bill of
tho sessiorl today. It was Senator Dim
ick'g ball designed to curb the activi
ties of the I. W. W. and of foolshevista,
who wish to promote industrial and
political revolution by moans of vio-.
lonco. The bill dofines criminal syndi
calism and sabotage.
Senator Pierce was the only member
to speak and vote against the bill, the
other 29 senators favoring it, while
Senators Eddy, Uimick and Moser made
vigorous addresses in its support..
Senator Dimick declared that the
bill, under existing circumstances, is
one of the prime needs of the day. H
said Mayor Baker of Portland had told
him that 135 returned soldiers and
sailors in Portland had enlisted in the
'bolshevik! movement, and ho pointed to
Seattle whore $20,000 had been raised
to promote the movement.
"Reading of the daily papers will
show that, this thing is coming west
ward," he said. "You have to look this
matter fltraight in tho face, the issue
is here. Tho time has eomo when we
must say there shall be in Oregon no
bolshevisra or I. W. W.ism that shall
seek revolution by teaching criuio and
violence. " .
Labor Not Affected
He said the bill will not affect labor
organizations and that such organiza
tions, which are patriotic, should sup
port it.
'It ftffpr.ts no one but the crimin -
al," he insisted.
Senator Eddy pointed to the ris
and fall of past civilizations and said
thoae of this time should not bo de -
luded with iho idea that they possess
some power which holds them above a
similar fate unless tho iprewnt attaca
at the foundation of civilization is not
supnrcssed. Ho said tho menace of bol-
shevism was the worst that ever faced
"There is only one thing to do," he
said, "and that is to meet tho issue. A
new situation demands new legislation.
If the legislature refused. to act now,
it would be a confession -that we aro
so blind that we cannot rend the signs
of the timos, or so controlled 'by fool
ish sentimentalism tliat we would with
hold the fire department whllo the tem
ple cf civilization is on fire.?' -Pierce
Opposed Bill
Senator Pierce opposed the bill oa
the ground that the bill was . not the
proper method of meeting the issue.
He said the bill would be liko flaunting
a redflag in the face of ths bolshev
ists, and he argued that perhaps there
was need for society to reorganise it
solf and for the industrial world to be
so rooraanized that every man would
be able to earn a living for inmseif ana
He made a motion to postpone consid
eration of the bill, Ibut it was lost by
an overwhelming vote.
The bill which was passed by the
house this morniine carrying an appro
"priation for the immediato rcliof of
soldiers reached the senate end was re-

The bill calling for the appropriation
of $250,000 of state money provides
that the governor shall appoint a com

mittee shall be empowered to extend
financial aid to returning soldiers and
sailors in amounts they shall deem nec
essary. Also that uym the passage ef
the similar bill by the senate, it shall

The Portland delegation who earn
to the city last evening felt that some
such action was necessary as a matter
of public safety. Mr. Gordon, who in
troduced the bill said that the govern
ment had delayed in taking note of
the immediate needs of the returning
soldiers and sailors and Mr. Kubli stud
that the action of Oregon would set the
pace for other states, in the care of the
returning warriors.
