(Associated l?ress) The or
ganization committee of the in
ternational Socialist, conference,
whiqh was, to have opened here
some weeks ago, but which wa9
postponed because the failure
of expected delegates from
France, Great Britain and the
United States to secure! passports
from their governments allowing
them to . attend, issued ' a state
. ment yesterday outlining the
. terms upon which it is believed
the war may be brought to an
, end,' - -J'
The terms are based upon the
assumption of the committee that
.neither the Entente tiQtl the Cen
tral Towers will be able to secure
a military victory during the re
. mainder of the present year nqr
' during next year and,, the, year
1919 will open with the contend

Cotton Control Board Shuts
Down Production But Opera
tives Are Compensated
MANCHEHTEB, England; October
lit (Assoeiated Press) Nearly forty
percent of spindles and looms in the
, anCMhirs cotton trade have ceased
those rtrms which decide to rnn aoin-
j tional machinery by permission from
the control board. It is expected that
$250,000 weekly will be paid in this
way.
Owners oi mills engaged on Egyp
tian cotton have decided to run ns
muoh machinery as possible and pay
the necessary levies. In the American
auction no mill is allowed-to run more
than seventy percent of the machinery
nnd it is understood that comparative
ly few firms will work more than anty
percent the exception being those mills
enjruged yarns for cloths suitable
for war purposes.
