It is recognized that the exchange of opinions between the German envoys and the allies at Versailles might be upset completely if any Qat announcement were made here at this time. The cabinet, the peace committee of the national assembly and the leaders of the various political parties met again today tp discuss the de-1 (Continued on page seven.) 'Why didn't Mayor James I. Barnes recognize the Logansport Trades'and Labor Assembly on the committee which is to prepare the great Fourth of July home-coming celebration in this city? According to Mrs. O. P.

Smith, secretary of the assembly, the mayor has been requested on several occasions to recognize this organization which represents practically 4,000 laboring people ot this cily and appoint a representative on the exec- tive committee, but he has failed to act. Organized labor is greatly worked up about the fact since the mayor has refused to act after the many reqtiests. As a meeting of the asembly in its regular session last night, several interesting things came up in connection with this. A suggestion was made to the assembly to refuse to take part iu the celebration, but no action was taken on the motion. Among the 100 delegates, representing over 3,000 men at the meeting, there was a feeling of resentment that organized labor was not treated with consideration in this, the greatest event that is to be pulled off in Cass county this year.

A great number of the delegates suggested that organized labor not take part in the celebration on the Fourth of July, but appoint a committee to prepare for a welcoming home celebration on Labor Day. Probably the larger per cent of the soldiers of this county are from the different trades and organized labor feels that it should be treated justly in giving our hoys a welcoming home. It is said that a statement was made last night that Mayor Barnes had worked hard among members of organized labor for his election- and since that time had absolutely ignored the laboring people.

A WORD TO THE UNWISE In its last Sunday's issue the Tribune made a vicious and uncalled for attack on the Pharos-Reporter, because this paper advertised its greater circulation, which has been declared as libelous by parties in a position to judge. The article contained more than one untrue statement but the principal one to which the public's attention is called at this time is as follows: "It might be added that the was not long ago expelled from the Audit Bureau of Circulations for irregularities and was later reinstated upon promise to be good." The Audit Bureau of Circulations is a national organization, having among its members a large percent of the leading newspapers, magazines, farm papers, national advertisers and advertising agencies. Its purpose is to secure authentic circulation figures, making an audit of the member publications once a year, and the Bureau has been so successful that it is now pronounced the last word in reliable circulation statistics. The alleged libelous statement in the Tribune Sunday was at once referred to the Audit Bureau of Circulations and Stanley Clague, head of the Bureau, replied as follows CHICAGO, May 13th, 1919.

My Dear Sir: Answering yours of- May 13th, state that the statement contained in the advertisement which appears in the Logansport DailyTribune of Sunday, May llth, reading as follows, is unwar-- ranted and is not in accordance with the facts: "Money talks and it is a simple matter to prove whether the lies about its circulation or teUs the truth. IT MAY BE ADDED THAT THE WAS NOT LONG AGO EXPELLED FROM THE AUDIT BUREAU OF CIRCULATIONS FOR IRREGULARITIES AND WAS LATER REINSTATED UPON PROMISE TO BE GOOD." The attention of the Logansport Daily Tribune will be called to the misuse of the name of the Audit Bureau, which, is in violation of the publicity by-laws of our association.

Paul Souder on behalf, of the state liberty loan committee presented to the five wards of the city, each of which had raised its full quota, a fine Victory Flag which the various wards were requested to take with them and display in. a suitable place in their ward.
