S, And in the Meantime IS KEEN Washington awaits of a new senator from Indiana with an interest deeper than attaches to the mere filling senof one vacancy among ninety-si- x ators. The news spread through the country from Washington and Indianapolis is prevailingly to the effect that Beveridge will get the appointment. That is the chief cause of national interest, for the appointment of an unknown would mean little to the country or to Washington. Some who have taken pains to probe far into the states of mind of those whose counsel will affect the appointment do not share the common expectation that Mr. Beveridge will get it. The candidates described as more chairman likely Include an oi tho Republican party," and attorney," a "prominent lawyer," and "a son of the Tate Charles W. Fairbanks." Some of the appela-tlotimean much outside of Indiana It has not been much mentioned, but it is a fact that the possibilities most to the front at this moment include the governor of the state himself. Governor Jackson Is "under pressure to send himself to the senate," at least, that is the phrase in which the idea is conveyed to those who inquire. The process would consist- of resignation from the governorship, and then appointment to the senate by the lieutenant governor, those steps being made possible by amenities now existing the in Indiana politics. However, everything so far is surmise. The present fact Is, the question has not been settled, and there is a program of conferences during the present week out of which a different result may come. Washington's curiosity and Interest lie in the possibility that Mr. Beveridge may be named. To the administration and to the Republican party, any other appointee would be a vote. But Mr. Beveridge would be a voice. It is common judgment that the greatest present need of President Coolidge, the administration and the Republican party is to have someone in the senate willing to fight Mr. battles and be able to do it. Some Republican senators, like Gillette and Butler, from Mr. Coolidge's own Btate of Massachusetts, are loyal and willing to fight his battles, but are not able, because they are too new in the senate, and are not speech-makers- . Others, who are able and on whom the party duty would normally lie, lack willingness, for reasons which vary with the Republican senator whose capacity to throw his heart into defense of Mr. Coolidge is impaired by the senator's own presidential ambitions. The net of it is that Mr. Coolidge is less defended by his party leaders in the senate, is more at the mercy of the opposition, than any president of either party since Grover Cleveland.

Washington. The United States supreme court has held In effect that the California criminal syndicalism law, under which more than a hundred men and women are serving sentences in California prisons, was constitutional. A plea from conviction was dismissed without opinion. The appeal was made by Miss Charlotte Anita Whitney, Oakland, Calif., from her conviction and prison sentence in an Alameda county, California district court, five years ago. Her offense was membership in the Oakland branch of the communist labor party of California, and attendance at an organization meeting of the communist labor party of California. The criminal syndicalism law made It a felony punishable by one to fourteen years in prison to belong to any organization which advocates or sympathizes with the use of violence to bring about a change in the present political and industrial system. The law was enacted In 1910, Miss Whitney was the first person to be charged with violating It. An indictment was returned against her on five counts, one for each section of the law. Four of the counts were dismissed until the jury was unable to reach verdicts on them. The evidence was that Miss Whitney belonged to the Oakland branch of the state communist labor party. At a meeting of the state party she introduced resolutions to put the on record in favor of legal use of the ballot as the best way to better the conditions of the working people. The resolutions were defeated and others adopted which asserted the ballot was useless as a means to the end the organization sought. Counsel fer Miss Whitney denied that the Oakland branch was affiliated with the communist labor party of California at the time she belonged to it, asserting that it was nothing more than a socialist party. The state contended that the organization of which Miss Whitney was a member, sympathized with the I. W. W. and the communist Internationale of Moscow; that they were all tied together; and showed the character of one of the organizations, the Industrial Workers of the World, by placing on the witness stand several members who testified as to acta of violence they or other members of the organization had committed. In addition to the membership of the Bection of the act under which Miss Whitney was convicted, the law made it a felony to print, publish, display or circulate the literature of one of the forbidden organizations; Justify or attempt to justify such an organization or its acts; aid or abet such an organization or organize or assist in the organization of a forbidden organization. TIMES-NEW- Germans Are Accepted by Other Na- -' tions As Being On Equal Footing For First Time Since The World Wir n Locarno, Switzerland. Peace between Germany, France and Belgium at last is assured. The long sought for security pact outlawing war finally has been approved, and the signatures of all contracting parties have been attached. Not only has the Rhine pact been agreed to, but the troublous question dealing with security for France's allies in the East Poland and Czechoslovakia likewise has been resolved. Under the Western security pact the signatories France, Germany and Belgium engage themselves not to attack or Invade the other's territory and to abstain from war. Standing in the background as guarantors of the fulfillment of the terms of the agreement will be Great Britain and Italy, ready to use their might against any of the signers of the tripartite agreement which violates its terms. Should disagreements arise, arbitration between the dissatisfied states is obligatory. The permanent court of international justice boards of conciliation and the council of the league of nations all are possibilities for Bettling disputes. There will be collateral arbitration treaties between Germany and France and Germany and Belgium which will interlock with the Rhine pact Itself and also arbitration treaties between Germany and Poland and Czechoslovakia. Separate conventions will be drawn up between France and her Eastern allies guaranteeing France to aid them If they should meet with unprovoked or flagrant attack. After initiating the Locarno agree-men- s the various treaties probably will be signed two weeks hence in London. Under the Rhine pact Germany is to join the league of nations, and the officials of the league are anxious that she do so at the earliest moment possible and participate in the preliminary studies for the proposed disarmament conference which the league will convoke when it believes Europe has reached the point of real security. It is no secret that Germany desires a lessoning in the armaments of her neighbors, and that she believes with peace secure, this will be attainable. Optimism prevails on the part of at least one 'of the main delegates to the conference here Austen Chamberlain, the British foreign secretary that not only has good coma from the Locarno conference to Europe, but to the nations of the world. "Relations have been established.'' said Mr. Chamberlain, "which will have their rupe.rcusslon and repetition In the near future la the relations between other nations, and there will emerge for Europe not a peace pact Imposed, but a peace consented to by all." Benito Mussolini, the facist premier of Italy Is here to affix sis signature to the Locarno agreement as, with Great Britain, one of the guarantors of the Rhineland pact. Fearful of nms possible untoward acts against him by Socialists, from whose banner ho seceded to become a facist. Swiss police officials and a bodyguard of fascists are guarding him.
