S. Miller providing for the establishment of a municipal court In Alliance, is growing rapidly. Petitions are being circulated and freely signed calling on tbe legislature not to jam through the bill which is proving Obnoxious to the people who will have to pay the bill. Th? tremendous expense of the proposed court, the limitation of candidates for tbe position of Judge to lawyers only and the ease with which law suits wlll be able to be brought and heard are the chief objections being raised ] io the bill. At the meeting Thursday night the Central Labor Union unanimously ! pussed a resolution opposing the bill ! and deciding to send Representative ! Miller a copy of the protest. This 1 resolution, ln no unmistakable terms, urges the legislature not to force os the people a court which they have never asked for. It ls pointed out that the bill was tbe result of the clamor of Alliance attorneys. The | j people have never asked for such s ! court. Other resolutions protesting .against the bill are expected to be passed and sent the legislators. These will supplement the many petitions urging the defeat of the attorneys' measure- International News Service: Waahlngton, D.

Congressional leaders said thst no arrangements yet had been made for a Joint seeslon of congress to receive a communication from tbe president. However, practically every member of congress was at his desk and a Joint session could be arranged at | ten minutes' notice. Capital Calm Despite Near Break. Officialdom generally has calmly accepted the belief that diplomatic relations with Germany will be sev ered. The capital was extremely calm, lt was full that inasmuch as the president had served his ultimatum in the-Sussex case that now the pledges then made were withdrawn, the next logical step waa to make good on the threat contained therein. It was said at the state department tbat so far there has been no confirmation received of the report that Austria has also decided tp carry on ruthless submarine warfare.

When Secretary lAnsing was asked whether any reply had been made to the request of Ihe officials ot the American Line as to whether thetr vessels shall maintain their scheduled sailings, he said that none had been made. The matter is in the hands of Counsellor Polk and it was explained tbat no information can be given to the line officials until after the president shall have announced the policy that this government is to pursue. Officials at the navy department bave completed plans for the defense of merchant vessels should such action become necessary. The navy haa guns ready to arm American vessels. Telegrams Urge Diplomatic Break. It was admitted al the White House that thousands of telegrams bave been received from all over thn United States.

International News Servtes: Washington, D. C, Feb. 2.—The Ger man and Austro Hungarian embassies were very quiet today. Officials remained for the most part secluded. They frankly said they were await- | ing the action ot this government. Not a single offlcial entertained the slightest hope that a break with the United Stetes could be avoided. But they were hopeful that if it came '■: would -bo only a diplomatic break. In this connection lt wss again reported today that, every effort was to be made by submarine commanders to prevent American deaths ta tbelr new submarine warfare. As the day wore on and on announcement of the intentions of this government was forthcoming some of the officials at tbe Gorman embassy professed to see a faint hope thaf some means had been devls<ed to meet the situation without a break In diplomatic relations. Their optimism was not shared by other members of tho staff, however, or ln diplomatic circle* generally.
