WiiiUNOTos, Aug. 20. President
Wllfon Is in favor of compulsory arbl-
' tntlon as a means of nettling all fu
ture threatened railroad strikes. In a
til-gram made public at the White
Home to-day he Intimates that he
will urge legislation to this end.
, "This situation must never be at
Ion oil to arise again" and "some
means must be found to prevent Its
recurrence" were two sentence from
a statement which the President made
public to-day in reply to the charge of
the rt1way executives that In hia ef
forts to prevent the Impending: strike
he has sacrificed the principle of arbi
tration in the settlement of wage con
troversies. It was learned to-day that the Presi
dent on une or two occasions In the last
few days list told the railroad presidents
that hs favors compulsory arbitration,
but that It la too late to attempt any
trine of this character In the present
situation. The President's attitude
toward compulsory arbitration (or the
future Is a factor that Is likely to have
a favorable effect on the present situa
tion. The making public of the President's
Ttwi marked another step In the cam
paffn of publicity that has succeeded the
'arret conferences at the white House.
With the- exception of the President's
statement of his attitude toward arbitra
tion there was a Sunday lull In the nego
t'ttlons for nvolding a strike. The rat!-

m part gave up consideration or the
problem for the day, many of them de

Hospital Flies. Animal Shel

Are Torn Away.
HcADQUARTICRa V'ew Tnnv Tliviatfw
McAllcv, Tex., Aug. 18. The second
hurricane In ten days struck the camps
oi me sew York division nt 3 o'clock
this afternoon. Hlnce early morning
wind and rain from the northwest had
been sweeping HcAllen, Mission and
Fharr and the big Gulf storm broke just
as word cams that the sea wall at Gal
veston was ten feet under water. All
telegraph wires but one from the Mc
Allen section went out with the breaking
of the storm. Warning received by
wireless last night and repeated this
morning gave the camps warning enough
to get tents repegged and reroped and
to get under shelter all perishable sup
plies. When the eighty mile wind came, how
ever, fly tents were carried away. Ani
mal shelters were torn to ribbons and
some of the mess shelters under con
struction were wrecked. The mess hall
at division headquarters went to pieces
and the flies at the first Held hospital
were swept away. Thirty-eight sick
men were removed to the operating room
of the hospital.
The Fourteenth and Seventy-flrst In
fantry regiments got the full force of the
storm eighteen mile to the northwest.
Their shelter tents gave them little pro
tection, but the men, hardened under the
three days of marching through which
they had gone, never lost cheerfulness.
The Third Infantry, which marched to
day from McAllen to Mission, found Its
camp untenable and it had to move Into
the camp of the Fourteenth.
A Federal paymaster went Into the
range this morning with JOO.000 for the
Fourteenth and Seventy-first. July pay
for the former and June and July for the
latter. The Seventy-flrst was paid In
the rain at 'Monte Christo.
Two men of the Fourteenth, one whose
feet had given out and one with a touch
of fever, were brought back to camp to
day. Two of the Seventy-flrst were also
brought back, both of them protesting
bitterly against having to come. Three
others of the Seventy-flrst had to make
part of to-day's march In a wagon.

A MEXICAN PROTEST
Bishop Hickoy at Pontifical
Mass Urges United Move
to End Outrages.
PATHIOTI.SM IS CHEERED
Three Cardinals Officiate at
Cathedral Services Mass
.Meeting In Evening.
Preaching yesterday morning In St.
Patrick's Cathedral at tho pontlflcal
mass which opened the convention of the
American Federation of Cathollo Socle
ties, the night Ilev. Thomas F. Hlckey,
Bishop of Rochester, asked the members
of that organisation what they are going
to do regarding the treatment accorded
to Itoman Catholics In Mexico.
"It Is a matter of general Informa
tion." said Bishop Hlckey, "that across
the border, and at our very door, Indigni
ties have been heaped upon Bishops,
priests, nuns and people. What united
protest has gone out against these out
rages?" Tho federation will be asked by the
German Catholic Central Vereln to con
sider the question In the convention, and
It probably will turn out to be the most
Important Issue of Catholic week.
Those who wish to have the matter dis
cussed by the Catholics Insist that It be
taken up without regard to politics.
Bishop Hlckey emphasized the fact
that the federation Is non-partisan. He
did not dlscusi the Administration's
stand respecting Mexico, but did con
demn the Government for permitting the
post office to deliver periodicals which
"vilify and calumniate the church."
Bishop Hlckey, In debating these top
ics, had as audience the most representa
tive Catholic gathering ever seen In this
city. The Catholic hierarchy of America,
Including Cardinals Gibbons of Balti
more, Farley of New York and O'Connell
of Boston, Apostolic Delegate Bonzano,
four Archbishops and twenty-seven Bish
ops from all parts of the country, lis
tened to what was virtually a challenge
to the federation to take action. Also In
the audience were hundreds of priests
and monslghorl. Knights of St. Gregory
and societies representing every element
of thought In the Catholic Church. The
Cathedral was tilled.
American Flag Prominent.
The note of Americanism was struck
by Bishop Hlckey at the close of his
sermon. In fact, expressions of patriot
Ism were general throughout tne cathe
dral. Along with the papal colors, white
and yellow, and Cardinal Farley's shield
bearing hU coat ot arms, were the Stars
and Stripes In every form. The Amer
ican coat of arms was hung In the
chancel back of the altar, above the
Tho societies that marched Into the
cathedral In the rear of the ecclesiastical
procession bore their banners. The
Knights of Columbus, massed In front
of the chancel throughout the long
service, had their colorH and the Stars
and Stripes, Early In the ceremony
"America" was played on the cathedral
The procession Into the cathedral,
which began at 11 and did not end until
11:45, was led by the monastic orders,
the Franciscans, Capuchins, Dominicans,
Jesuits and Augustlnlans. Behind them
walked battalions of priests, who lined
the centre aisle as the monslgnorl and
higher ofllccrs In gorgeous robes marched
In the direction of the chanceL
The monslgnorl, In Itoman purple but

SAYS NEUTRAL U. S.
London Newspaper Declares
American Attitude Loses Post
London, Aug. 20. In a leading edi
torial, entitled "The Great Neutral," the
Sunday Times asserts that the United
States has forfeited post-bellum rights
which might hsve been enjoyed If a
different attitude had been assumed
early In the war. It says:
"Next to war, perhaps nothing Is more
wonderful thnn neutrality. In theory,
to be neutral Is to be non-partisan and
to favor neither sldp. But In practice, as
we know, neutrality may arrogate to It
self a variety of functions which might
at first sight seem foreign to Its nature.
"So far as the present war Is con
cerned only one neutral of plain conse
quence exists. We refer of course to the
United States of America. When Eng
land Joined the Issue with Germany In
1914 the probable attltudo of Amerlcn
would appear to have been considered
by nobody but tho Germans. Roughly,
the English view was that by tho nature
of things American sympathy and, If
worst came to worst, American support
might be taken for granted.
"It would be Invidious and probably
Improper to suggest that we have neither
ono nor the other. The Germans Bay
wo have. On the other hayd, wo bellevo
there is a tremendous body of American
opinion which says wo have not. There
was a moment at the beginning of tho
war when the whole duty of the Ameri
can Government seemed to be palpably
and surely before It. For good or III,
that moment was allowed to pass, Amer
ica did not Intervene, did not move. In
deed, to assert a moral right she as
sumed the virtue of her Insistent partici
pation In the Haguo convention.
"If by this failure she lost nothing of
material Importance, and may for that
matter rather have gained in so far as
her own Immediate advantage Is con
cerned, she certainly forfeited post-bellum
rights which would have been hers
If she had taken upon herself the bur
dens and responsibilities of Interference.
"This view of her portion Is fully ap
preciated In those quarters where Amer
ican neutrality has been upheld In the
face of all criticism, and obviously Is the

James W. Osborne Says Or

OPPOSED TO NEW TRIAL
Knickerbocker Says He Will
Resist Efforts to Reopen
Phelps Murder Case.
At.niov, N. T Aug. 20. James W.
Osborne of New York, who has been
engaged by tho Humanitarian Cult as
special couneel for Charles F. Stlelow,
under sentence of death for the murder
of Charles II. Phelps In West Shelby,
may ask Gov. Whitman to take the
conduct of the prosecution from the Or
leans District Attorney, John C. Knicker
bocker. Mr. Osborne sent a special delivery
letter to Gov. Whitman at midnight.
TIip letter Is understood to contain a
request for the removal of Mr. Knicker
bocker from the conduct of the case.
Mr. Osborne refused to discuss the con
tents, saying tho letter wns for Gov.
Whitman to make public.
Mr. Osborne said, however, the evident
bias of the District Attorney and his re
fusal to give any consideration to the
confession of Krwln King, the horse
trader who sworo August 10 that he
and Clarence O'Connell, an Auburn con
vict, were the murderers, made It Im
perative In the Interests of Justice that
another man be named. Mr. Knicker
bocker will oppose a new trial for Stle
low at the hearing before Justice Roden
back In Rochester next Wednesday.
"I think the Governor should Instruct
the olllco of Attorney-General Woodbury
to take charge of the prosecution of the
case," Mr. Osbomo said. "The District
Attorney Iiiim demonstrated that he Is
disqualified. He is, of course. In a deli
cate position. He successfully prose
Failed to Corroborate.
"As an example of his unfitness to
continue In tho case, It Is only necessary
to recall thnt when he had tho confes
sion of Krwln King and could have gone
right out and obtained ample corrobora
tion. Instead he put King in an automo
bile. In Juxtaposition to the detective,
Newton, who had won the reward for
llxlng the crime on Stlelow. After the
ride from Little Valley to Albion with
King. Mr. Knickerbocker produced a re
cantation of the confession which King
only a few hours before valuntarlly had
given the officials of Cattaraugus county.
"I have been engaged by the Humani
tarian Cult to act In thl case and my
only Interest Is to find the truth. Since
I have been here riorts of attempts to
obscure the truth have been called to
my attention. It Is in the power of tfie
Governor when thin rendition arises to
step In and supplant the District Attor
ney. This ought to be done."
Move Expected To-day.
One of the two Important steps which
have been under conlderatlon for sev
eral days by fitlelow's attorneys proba
bly will be taken tu-mormw. Either a
t warrant charging King with the Phelps
murder will De nhtatned or Magistrate
Skinner In Medina or King will be re
moved from Orleans county to Little
Valley. Cattaraugus county, where he Is
wanted on an assault nnd robbery
charge. It Is the desire of Mr. Osborne
to get King away from the Influence of
the Orleans county officials.

ficer who commanded n supor-Zeppelln In
a recent attack on England. Tho officer
said the measures taken tiy the British to
piotect themselves against aircraft raids
have Improved recently, a more effective
use of searchlights being noticed.
The nbjecties of air raiding craft, the
officer added, were military establish

admitted that at the great elevations nt
which the Zeppelins fly accurate aim Is
difficult, but that experlenco was show
ing that bombs dropped by the airships
generally reached their marks.
Bombs of 600 pounds dropped on a
large foundry, the officer continued,
caused the collapse of all the walls of the
building, while fire lombs dropped at
another place set whole buildings afire.
It Is the opinion of this officer that Zep

difficult to combat, especially those of the

of a super-Zcppelln crossing from Ger

said such a feat would tie perfectly feasi

wholly unfavorable. Under bad weather
conditions a drawback would be that the
rraft would ptobably be compelled to sail
for a time with the wind. The officer
said the Zeppelins had now reached such
a state of perfection that travelling In
them was perfectly kafe.

Tho military critic of tho Frankfurter
Zrttunu, reviewing tho mllltury situation,
admits that there can be no question of
the events on thu eastern front or on the
Sommo having readied a conclusion.
"We have," he says, "repeatedly pointed
out the enormous perseverance of the
British In a fiurely military ephere. Po
litically, tho British are Just as pertina
cious and In every reepect they are our
trreatest and most active enemy.
"For this renson the fighting on the
Somme Is of decisive Importance to iih.
For tho first time Great Britain has
ventured upon the continent with an
army of millions, and for tho first time
she Is vulnerable therefore In her manhood.
This the British knew beforo they created
their army of millions. It would show
great Ignorance of their history to sup.
