CLOTHING BOSSES CAUSE THE
ARREST OF THREE
The garment workers of- Chicago
are smiling today at the rush for po
lice aid made by the clothing bosses
when labor trouble was first sug
gested here. Last Monday two girl
workers and a union organizer ad
dressed the employes of Lyons'
Bros., clothiers, 21st st and Blue
Island av. They did not talk strike;
it was merely an organization meet
ing. The next day the three were
arrested on warrants sworn out by
the Lyons Bros. But the latter, after
thinking it over, did not appear in
court. The three were discharged.
A. Friedman, president of the
Lyons Bros. Co., and J. Medwin, fore
man; were arrested today on the
complaint of girl workers of the
firm, who charged them with insult
ing them after the girls had spoken
of joining the union. The men were
taken to the Hinman street police
station, where they gave bond.

GEFfMANY TO EXPLAIN PEACE
TERMS TO AMERICA
London, Jan. 31. Germany is
about to tell America that she is
ready to formulate her peace terms
if the allies request them, in a com
munication now enroute, or shortly
to be sent, to Ambassador Bern
storff at Washington. Holland dis
patches today gave this as a new
German peace move, apparently de
cided upon at the conference of Ger
man and Austrian royalty and offi
cialdom at the German great head
quarters on Saturday, the kaiser's
birthday. ' l
These reports aroused the greatest
interest here today, but there was an
entire lack of response to the sug
gestion that the allies submit a for
mal request for Germany's peace
terms. England and her allies feel
they have sufficiently answered the
German peace terms as well as Pres
ident Wilson's suggestions in the
three notes already written.
