Paris, May 7. (By the Associated Press. The allies have sent to the allied high commission in Upper Silesia an urgent request to act energetically in the suppression of the Polish uprising in that district, urging allied troops for the purpose.

It is also urging the commission to act as quickly as possible on the settlement of the boundary between Poland and Germany. French circles appeared much concerned today at the news received of the arrest by fifty Germans, who had crossed the frontier, of Captain Deb-lois, of the French army, controller of the district of Ober-GIogau. The Germans took Captain Deblois to Neustabt. Concessions to Oppeln, Silesia, May 7. German requests that the frontier between Germany and Silesia be opened and that all political prisoners held by the allies in Upper Silesia be released have been granted by th inter-allied commission here.

Decision whether the use of German government troops would be permitted in Silesia and whether the Polish frontier would be closed was expected early today. An armored train was from Breslau to Kruezburg, about thirty miles northeast of here by Germans last night, and was turned over to the allied authorities there. The allies accepted the train, in view of the reports that the Poles planned to attack Kruezburg today. When Rosenberg was taken by the Poles a British major who was acting as control officer there was arrested by a Polish leader who was formerly a police officer under the command of the major. The Polish leader ordered the major be shot, and ordered a squad of five men nt execute him.

As the squad took its place, the major said, "You do not dare to shoot," whereupon the Poles lowered their rifles and refused to fire.

Fidelity State Bank Service that Satisfies. Capital $3lfOO Burins OKFOSITS GUARANTEED It Holds Title of Act Creating Kan sas Court of Industrial Relations Is Broad Enough to Cover Anti-Strike Section. Topeka, May 7. The title of the act creating the Kansas court of industrial relations is sufficiently broad to cover all its provisions, the state supreme court held today in the case against Jerry Scott, a switchman arrested in Kansas City, in the "outlaw" switchmen's striking a year ago.

The supreme court reversed the decision of Judge W. H. McCamish of the Wyandotte County district, and ordered further proceeding in the lower court. The motion of the defense to quash and attack the constitution ality of the industrial court failed generally. The ruling or the trial court was based solely upon the ground that the title was too narrow to cover prohibition of the acta charged against the defendant.

The supreme court refused to consider the arguments of Scott's attorneys, solving other questions of the law's validity, holding such Issues may be brought up only in case of an appeal from judgment of conviction. The Jerry Scott case from Wyan dotte county brought to the Kansas supreme court the most vital legal attack yet made on the law creating the court of industrial relations. The right to strike was the principal is sue involved. Scott was one of the participants in switchmen's strike in Kansas City in April, 1920. He with oth ers was arrested for violation of the anti-strike section of industrial court law.

The defendants were released by Judge William H. McCam ish on the ground that the title of the act was not sufficiently broad to cover the anti-strike provision. The state then appealed to the supreme court. In arguing the case before the su preme court the constitutionality of the industrial court law was attack ed from nearly every angle, counsel for Scott holding that since the orig inal motion to quash the indictment cited all the various alleged unconstitutional features of the law, the defense should have the opportunity of winning on the other points if not on the technicality of a defective title. Scott's attorneys argued that ev ery man has the fundamental right to strike, which can not be abridged by statute.

Around this contention the defense centered its attack on the industrial court law. The state, in reply, declared no constitutional right to strike exists and that al though there is a right to strike which is recognized in the common law this right can be restricted by statute under the police powers of the state, to care for the public wel fare. While the industrial court law clearly does not deny the right of a workman to quit at will, it makes it a felony to conspire with or induce others to strike. The Scott case was the first of several similar cases to come before the supreme tribunal for review. FIVE TRAFFIC CASES.

Unofficial Representatives on the Reparations Commission and Ambassadors' Council. Washington, May 7. The decision of President Harding to have a personal representative present at meetings of the allied supreme council as wrell as unofficial representatives of the United States on the council of ambassadors and the reparations commission was being studied carefully in all quarters today. The acceptance of the invitation of the supreme council to have the United States represented on the three bodies was not wholly unexpected because of the administration's interest in the reparations question and other economic settlements in Europe. It was emphasized in the highest administration circles that the step did not mean the participation of the United States in any project "of world government or world league." Both Republican and Democratic senators, who commented last night upon the action of the President, have agreed that it would require no expression or action by the senate, and several Republican members of the foreign relations committee said it appeared to be wise in that' it could obtain information which otherwise probably would be lost to this gov ernment.

Democratic senators said they were disappointed because the President had not decided "to have the government officially participate in the deliberation of the three bod ies." Ambassador Harvey as the repre sentative of the President at the meeting of the supreme council, although without authority to act or bind the United States to any action taken, will be in a position to for ward information upon all subjects discussed. To be the unofficial observer of the conference of the ambassadors in France until relieved by Uyron T. Herrick, Ambassadoi Wallace will perform that duty. He had acted In that capacity for the Wilson administration until the decision was reached early in the year to withdraw him as soon as Roland W. Hoyden, the unofficial representative on tqe reparations commission is reaay to act.

He is at present in Paris at the head of a corps of experts on reparations. The decision of the administration to accept the invitation rrom the allied supreme council to send American representatives to the allied council got into the senare Tor discussion today. Senator Harrison, Democrat, Mississippi, declaring that in sending the invitation the allies were rubbing it rn," upon the American government wnloh had deserted them. Paris Pleased. Paris, May 7.

Newspapers of this city today expressed great satisfaction with Washington dispatches announcing the United States has decided to resume her part in the supreme allied council, the council of ambassadors and the allied reparations commission. It was declared that the action of the American government was the result of French diplomacy, and would facilitate a general settlement of peace problems. Referring to diversions between Premier Briand and the Prime Minister Lloyd George, which arose during the meeting of the supreme allied council at London, the Matin declared the opposition of the British prime minister to many of M. Briand's demands "stopped as by enchantment" when he was told of the United States note to Berlin rejecting the German reparations proposal. TIED WITH IOWA.

Corkwell, who says this sign is just as dependable as any that ever came down the pike.

Mother's Day will be generally observed tomorrow in Chanute, most of the churches having arranged to provide transportation for mothers unable otherwise to attend the morn services, when mother sermons will be delivered and mother songs sung. Other observance of the day includes' the wearing of a carnation, a white one if the mother is.

dead, a red one if the mother is living. The observance of Mother's Day had its origin with Miss Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia thirteen years ago. when she planned to comm'emorata the anniversary of her mother's death. While wondering what flow er she should lay on her mother's grave, it occurred to her that it would be a beautiful tribute to all mothers, the living as well as the dead, if everyone would unite in wearing a flower on one day in the year. She decided on the white carna tion, because of its color, typical of purity; its form and fragrance, representing beauty and its wide field of growth and lasting qualities, symbolizing charity and faithfulness all virtues of a true mother.

She selected a day and asked everybody to wear a white carnation. On the appointed day scarcely a man apeared on the streets of Philadelphia whose coat was not adorned with the floral emblem. Other cities adopted tre custom, and in this way-Mother's Day originated. In 1914 Congress passed a bill de signating the second Sunday in May as "Mother's Day" calling upon the President to issue a proclamation requesting government officials to display the American flag on all government buildings each Mother's Day HOTEL COMMITTEE AND C.

L. Corkwell this morning and Enrique Martinez was fined $25 by Police Judge J. E. Bryan as a result of trouble which broke out in Smelter Hill yesterday forenoon.

A complaint which had been filed against Jose Martinez, brother of Enrique, alleging assault with a pocket knife, was withdrawn by County Attorney T. F. Morrison, the evidence showing that the knife was one Ernendez had drawn against Martinez. The trouble, according to Martinez, broke loose because Ernendez got hold of a check belonging to Enrique. When Jose Martinez, the elder of the brothers, demanded that the check be returned, Ernendez slashed at him with a pocket knife, making a hole in his hat and wounding his scalp.

Jose Martinez also accused Ernendez of biting his thumb so mat it will probably have to be taken off. When the two Joses mixed Enrique came to his brother's assistance and batted Ernendez on the head with a brick. When the police arrived the brothers had Ernendez helpless on a bed and were rapidly beating and choking him into insensibility. The affair occurred in a dwelling on Smelter Hill and the furniture was pretty well smashed up in the struggle. Police Chief William Gos-sett, who is a deputy sheriff, arrested all three combatants.
