FEDERAL AID TO
ROADS IN SENATE
Strong Opposition Develops
Payment of $500,000,000 to the
railroads to relieve their present
financial situation, as provided in
the administration's railroad bill,
probably will be delayed for several
months, as the result of Senate
developments yesterday. Senate
leaders predict (he measure could
not be passed this session, and informed
President Harding that it
cannot be enacted in the near future.
Hope of rushing it through
befcre the Congressional recess has
been definitely abandoned by Senator
Watson, who also does not
believe it can be passed this session.
Bfll Meets Stiff Opposition.
Radical differences over the form,
and, to some extent, the principle
of the measure, exist between the
President and some Republican
Senators. In addition, most of the
Democrat*, backed by Senator La
Foilette, are violently opposed to
the Jaill. and more than powerful
enough to delay it for a long time.
Increased opposition also has arisen
In the Mouse.
Yesterday's" meeting of the Senate
Interstate Commerce Committee
was enlivened by a clash over
whether William *G. McAdoo should
be called to give his views on the
bill. Republican members, with the
exception of La Foilette, opposed
more hearings, but decision on the
matter was postponed until next
Aeeaaattoaii of Sqaaaderlag.
La Foilette is demanding that
witnesses be called to testify ret
garding alleged ^"squandering of
railroad earnings since private control."
"They are neither in a condition
of necessity, nor are they
entitled to Mk for a government
bounty," he said.
The White House last night issued
a statement pointing out the
advantages that will accrue from
the recent reduction of 7% cents a
hundred pounds on export gfrain
from Chicago to New York. Prediction
was made that this change
would enhance the value of grain
to the farmer, and that other reductions
Proml?e? Rate Reduction.
I The statement declares the administration's
program to aid the
railroads was based on "the railroads
relinquishing their so-called
'labor inefficiency claims,' and undertaking
to inaugurate reductions
in export grain rates, while the administration
undertook to assist
them by securing early settlement
of their claims against the government."
"These reductions in rates," the
statement continues, "with the arrangements
for financial assistance
to ekport trade and the assurance
that Europe Is going to need extraordinary
quantities of American
foodstuffs, constitute altogether a
justification for strong hope that
the tendency In the agricultural
markets will for some time be decidedly
toward better prices.'

CLAIMS 300 MORE
AMERICANS IN JAIL
Says Big Bill Haywood
Longs for Comfort of
fflpsHil Cable to Hie Washington Herald
ad Chioaga Tribune.)
RIGA. Aug. 12-?Bill Haywood,
head of the Industrial Workers or
the World, now is being detained
in Russia, according to information
received by one American prisoner
in Moscow a fortnight ago. According
to this information. American
penitentiaries possess rar more
attractions for Haywood than Moscow
in Its Soviet glad rags.
A hitherto unheralded American
prisoner in- Russia has escaped and
reached Red Cross neadquarters
here this evening. He said he had
walked 300 miles in four nights and
days. His name is Adams Karat,
of 375 Park street, Hartford. Conn.,
a machinist, born in Vilna, but a
naturalised American for twenty four
West to Aid Uaele,
Karat left New York on March
16. and arrived in Moscow April 14,
1921, via Reval. where he left his
passport with the American consut.
He says he intended to go to Petrograd
to aid an aged uncle. He
was arrested after three days in
the immigrants' home at Moscow,
where he says there are 300 Americans.
This is regarded here as untrue,
unless ft includes the radical
deportees from America.
Hl? Baggage Looted.
Karat saw Joseph Sabitsky. with
his wife and two children, who are
from Harrison. N. J. Sabitzky was
owner of a factory in Moscow, but
there are no workmen in the factory.
While Karat was in prison his
baggage, containing $900. shirts,
and suits of clothes, was commandeered.
He waa kept in prisoa for
thirty dlays on rations of water and
half a pound of bread. Karat says he
saw Haywood, who was denouncing
the "Rotables." but who was nervous
and wanted to get out.
Finally Karat ran away from the
factory where he had been working.
with two companions, one of
whom is Joseph Kodakewick, of Detroit,
who had only American first
papers. Karat managed to take a
train as far as Novosokolnika. Then
he walked to Saluki on the Latvian
border. He supported himself enroute
by swapping extra stockings
Kodakewick became footsore and
was unable to continue. Karat
waded through the swamps across
the border. The Red Cross has cablled
Karat's brother in Hartford.
America to Give Help
To Famine Victims Now
RIGA. Aug. 12.?Walter L. Rrown.
European director of American relief,
has received Instructions to
proceed with the negotiations with
Maxim Litvinoff, Soviet commissioner.
without waiting for the arrival
of the remainder of the
Americans now in Russia. Four
Americans, two of whom were
women, arrived at Reval this afternoon
and others are said to be on
The relief officials declared to Litvinoff
that Keely, the engineer who
has been held In Russia for many
months, and twenty other Americans
whose names are known to the
State Department, can easily be located.
and that the relief commission
will afford every assistance tothis
end. providing the transportation
and other things needed to
bring them safely out of Russia.
Will Nat Delay.
Brown told Litvinoff that he
could not continue the negotiations
until satisfactory Information had
been received that these twenty-one
Americans were on their way to the
frontier, although he.woyld not delay
action until they were actually
| across the border.
I Litvinoff promised immediate action
and declared that he was
anxious to go to Reval as soon as
possible, and therefore was anxious
to have the principal agreement
Instructions from /Washington
that Brown was to proceed with the
negotiations was 'taken as indicating
the belief that the Soviet wllf

The increase ln tl? exemption tor

a total loss of $50,000,000.
The committee .decided to stand
pat on the present surtax rates on
individual Incomes below the proposed
new maximum of 22 per cent
applying to incomes above $?S.000.000.
The proposal or Secretary of
the Treasury Mellon that this maximum
he reduced to 25 per cent for
Income of the calendar year 1922.
and thereafter was definitely rejected.
The Increase In exemption Is expected
to mean that there will be no
further agitation for any decrease
in the present normal taxes of 4
per cent on net Incomes of less than
$4,000 and 8 per cent on incomes In
excess of that amount.
C'ata Far and Candy' Taxes.
The committee reduced the tax on
furs from 10 to 5 per cent and also
cut the manufacturers* tax on candy
from 5 to 3 per cent. The tax on
works of art was reduced from 10
to 5 per cent.
It was decided to make no increase
in present taxes on tobacoc and
, cigarettes. The committee voted
to repeal *11 of section 904 of the
present law containing the so-called
luxury taxes. This was in accordance
with the recommendation of
Secretary Mellon. Earlier in the,
week the portions of this section
applying tc clothing were voted

As a substitute for the taxes in

impose somewhat similar taxes applying

successfully is under discuseion.
It is proposed that the manufacturer
pay a tax of 3 pef cent on
