Johnson Charges President
With Making Treaty By
Bes Moines, Iowa, Sept. 15. Ameri
ca receives nothing but burdens as its
share of tho league of nations, Senator
Hiram Johnson, declared after his ar
rival here to speak against the treaty
and league tomight with Senator Borah.
'President Wilson," Johnson said,
"made the treaty in stealth and is try
ing to get it ratified before the people
learn what it contains. "
-Every .allied and associated nation
profits from the league and treaty with
the exception of the United States,"
"It is obvious from the response of
the people to the issue I am presenting,
why the administration insists .upon
such haste in disposing of the treaty,"
said Senator Johnson. ' ' Its proponents
desire to have it hurriedly approved
before our people can find out what it
really means to, them, me senati has
had the treaty just two months, while
the president spent seven months witn
it. while the Eiiropeaiiand Asiatic pow
ers pieced their secret agreements to
gether, as tho Dasrs or tne document
now presented. -
"1 do not consider that there has
been anything personal in the crowds,
or in the demonstrations that have
marked the meetings. It is merely that
what the great mass of the people have
in their hearts has been expressed, and
the response has been immediate."

throughout the city were voting today
on tho question of a, general stne in
sympathy with the striking policemen,
prominent labor leaders had a confer
ence with Police Commissioner Curtis in
which the situation was discussed.

F. Mclnncs, president of the police
men's union; Guy oyster, personal rep
resentative of Samuel. Gompers; M. J.
O'Donnell, of the central labor union;
Frank H. McCarthy, of the American
Federation of Labor,, and Mai tin T.
After being closeted with the coiumis-
ioner for half an hour, the labor men
declared they had no statement to make.
Commissioner Curtis likewise declined
That Curtis reiterated to the labor
men his refusal to reinstate any of the
police who went on strike was assumed
in view of the fact that Curtis an
nounced that twenty candidates for
places on tho: new police force were
ready to be sworn .in. The majority or
the applicants are war veterans it was
This conference whs believed to mark
the end of negotiations between the au
thorities aud the labor leaders, iuusmuch

sioi.er Curtis have stated that the strike
ors will not be reinstated and thai fur
ther discussions would be futile.

Change Of Venue In Case
For Damages Done Howard
In the suits for damages filed by
Silas E. Howard against the Southern
Pacific and the Marion hotel company,
the Southern Pacific lias filed notice
that it will file a petition for the re
moval of the suits to the federal court
The grounds on which this petition
will be argued is that the amoiuita sued
for are in excess of IJ000 and that they
are of a civil nature.
; Alleging that Silas , E. Howard,
through his attorney, wns fraduicntly
attempting to prevent the Southern Pa
cific from having recourse to the fed
eral courts by joining' the issues with
Marion hotel, the petition of the rail
road alleges that tho Southern Pacific
was not operating the street car and
had no control over the car when Thep
dere Howard met his death.
That the street car which was bciny
operated at the time of youni Howard'?
death was not operated by the Southern
Pacific, but by Walker Hines, di
rector general of railroads and that the
petitioner knew of this fact when the
two suits were filed.
The Southern Pacifie also claims that
the cause of action in which the Marlon
hotel end the Southern Pacifie aro join
ed, are entirely separate matters and
canrot be joined together in a suit.
The petition of the railrond to have
the suits removed to the district court
of the United States a Portland, will
