DELEGATES WORKING HARD IN PREPARATION FOR FORMAL OPEK Several Of Most important Problems Of Initial Ses sions Rmaia Unsolved. By William Philip Simntg (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.

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 der treatment. T,he correspondent 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.

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.

ITALY AB AIM ITS EXIEIISII raOGEHH ACCEPTSJLIED IDEA This Is InterprcUtioa Pat Oa Kessgsateia Of Entire It tlssi Cafcbl Rome, Jan. 16. The entire Italiu cabinet hu reftgired. Premier Orlando waa at work today on the formation of a new cabinet - 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 ministers. 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. ; , ; THE DALLES FAVORS WOMEN IN OFFICES 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 Gavin 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: A bil lproviding for eight months as the minimum school term and making niirlit months of school each yeur coin pulsory.

W. Especially Directed Toward ftotecting Boys Returning Heine From War. 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 civilization. "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 family. 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- ferred to the .special committee on re Anfiatn.pl inn arnicn in rT nrt xnm m- - ".4."

The bill calling for the appropriation of $250,000 of state money provides that the governor shall appoint a com mission of five members who shall hold office at hie pleasure. That this corn 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 become effective at one. 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. The bill was passed unanimously by the house this morning with an adjourn ment until this afternoon in order that the billmight"be officially signed by tho president of the senate and , the speaker of the house.
