V Carbondale—"Athens of Egypt." VOLUME 17 CARBONDALE, ILLINOIS, SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1920 NUMBER 137'! WORKERS FORGE NEW MINISTRY Ebert Without Cabinet While 1 Unions Demand .Virtual Socialization of Nation; ' CHICAGO MOVERS . OUT ANTO&IO LOPEZ GUITERREZ Add, New Woe to Burdens of Home-Hunter's. HERR MUELLER ON THE JOB Foreign .Minister,!s,;Requested by the Presiden.t to : --F<>riTi,;.New Govern-' ! ment—L'abor Insists oh. Bargain —Wes'el Fighters Dig In. Berlin, -Mtrcli 27.—Germany's organized labor, \vreclced the Bauer government. The crash came when the • Bauer ministry openly showed.that.'it had no intention of conceding all the . trades uuion 'demands, fulfillment of .which would be^ a long step toward • "rndiciillzation" of Germany. Labors 'opposition centered on Dr. Fisher Cuno as finance minister on the ground that he had little sympathy with the workingman, and Vi'ce Chancellor Eugen Schiffer, the strongest - man in ttie cabinet after the retirement of Krzberger and Noake. Hermniiii Mueller, the foreign inin-' Ister, was requested by President Ebert to form a new government. The Bauer cabinet resigned twice within 48 hours. i • ' Now Herr Legieu, head : of German trades unionism, virtually the Samuel Gompers of Germany, loomx up as a- powerful figure as a result of the suc^, cess'of the general strike. Labor Insists on Bargain. Dependent for power upon a' labor organization more radical than. Ita leaders, Legion is compelled' to Insist . upon tne*strict fulfillment of the bargain that ended the general strike. The worklngmen's opposition to Schifter resulted in an announcement by the democrats of their withdrawal from the cabinet, aud this, in turn_ caused the three-party coaiition- gov-- . .eminent to collapse, Herr Mueller is endeavoring, to form a coalition government out ol^ the same parties thpt constltrited'.Uie last but" even if. he succeeds it Is extremely doubtful whether such a cabinet, will exist long if the trades' unions maintain their present standpoint, especially .since they are already threatening a renewal of the general strike. • Wesel Fighters Dig In. , • Amsterdam. March 27.—Government forces- at -Wesel are strongly Inr trenched north, of the Lippe river, and. .are ; .being, constantly re-enforced by armed farmers and bourgeoisie from towns nearby, the frontier correspondent of the Tele'graaf says.

'The' red; forces "also are increasing, it is salds? Casualties in the ranks of the cxpnnunists were about sixty dead andjone hundred wxninde'd.' Southwest of the-scene of the fight- .Ing near -Wesel are Belgian forces, •ivhich> have been withdrawn to the left 'bank' of the Rhine from the bridgehead formerly occupied, on the right bank. In addition to the Belgians, French troops, equipped with artillery, are arriving. Receive 30 Marks a Day. Soldiers in the communist army- receive 3,0 marks a day, with rations. Decision not tc abandon the struggle in the Ruhr district of Germany was reached at a meeting of repre-, sentatlves of labor councils of the -Rhineland and. Westphalia at Essen. The only condition" under which the workers will consent to peace is the withdrawal of government forces from •the Muenster military district, says a. dispatch received here. When communist forces occupied Dulmen/'a town 25. jnlles east' of Wesel, ^government 'troops holding the place retired without fighting, it is said. : ' Drivers and Helpers Seek $10 Rail* . «nd Nine-Hour Day—City Completely Tied Up. •Chicago, March 27.--Another heavy blow fell upon the head of the much- harassed Chicago home-hunter when 1,500- moving V! m drivers nii'l helpers went out on strike for'more' money and regular, hours.
