CHICAGO, July 21. At
midnight it was reported six
of the jrreat transportation
brotherhoods, in addition to
the masters, mates and
pilots of America had de
cided definitely to accept
Eight of the , remainder
were said to have tentatively
rejected the award, with
provision that the final de
cision be left to a referendum
vote of the memberships.
The Order of Railway
Conductors was said to be
still undecided, while the
Order of Railroad Telegraph
ers was reported to have is
sued strike ballots.
In view of the division it
was believed that the award
would be submitted to a ref
erendum by all the brother
hoods, either without recom
mendation or with the rec
ommendation of each group.
CHICAGO, July 21. Submission
of the $600.0110.000 rail wage awnnl
to a referendum vote by the. 1,800,
000 rallrad worker without any
geeommondatlon fro mtho union
leaders either for Its acceptance. ot
rejection appeared probable tonight
This was the opinion In labor cir
cles following rejection by the United
Stales railway labor board of a pe
tition fur a re-hearing of the case.
YlgM courses were open to the
union chiefs: First, submission with
out recommendation; second, recom.
mediation that the award be ac
cepted; and third, that It be re
jected. Thl moftt conservative counsel In
tneiinton ranks has steadfastly op
posed outright rejection of the labor
board's decision. The door of
recommendation of adoption appa
rently was closed today, leaders of
the rail workers intimated, when
they requested that the cue be re.
opened and the board refused to
Pass Award to Men.
Further than asking for a re-hear.
Ing It appeared doubtful that the
union leaders could consistently
recommend acceptance of the award,
usihelr action indicated It was un
satisfactory to them. The only
course open, therefore, would be to
pass the board's decision along to
the men and rely on their referen
dum. Krom a few cities curie reports
that the men had voted to reject
the award and stand on their origi
nal demands, but the ones so voting
remained at work.
The devotion to be made by the
brotherhood officers tomorrow may
have un Important effect on the fu
Antre of their organisation, in the
Opinion of observers.
It Is no secret that fcr months
there has been dissension within lb
union ranks and outspoken dissatis
faction over the failure of the union
officers to ohtaln for their men the
raises they demanded.
it was this dissatisfaction which
culminated in the sporadic strikes In
April Men who lolned the union
and walked out insisted they were
tired of the pollcv pursuer by the
"Inner politicians'' and that they
wanted "a new deal."

COLUMBUS. July 21. Tha
first act of the republican nation
al executive commltteo In ses

was to unanimously adopt a
resolution urging republican

lature to vote for ratification of
the federal suffrage amendment.
Members of the national wom
an's party expressed satisfaction
over the action anil claimed to

LONDON. July II, Premier I.loyd
Cicorge, addressing the house of com
mons, today said tho soviet answer
to tho allies regarding peace with
Poland, was Incoherent, ambiguous
and propaganda, largely Intended for
home consumption. So far as he
could understand, however, the
soviet Indicated its willingness to ne
gotiate direct with Poland.
The soviet government, the pre
mier declared, also wanted to give
Poland better boundarle than those
named by the allies. Mr. I.loyd
(ieorge said there were some phases
In the soviet message Indicating the
bolsheviki were prepared only to dls
us the matter with a proletariat
government. He declared the soviet
overnments had no right to dictate
to Poland what sort of government
the Poles should have.
Free Poland N. 4 .I. .1
The premier asserted thav an In
dependent Poland was essenUal to
the whole fabric of peace and the
allies were resolved that they must
arrest the destruction of Poland and
the march of bolshevik armies
througjh Polish territory, If the
bolsheviki overran Poland they
would be up against the Oernian
frontier and Mr. Lloyd (ieorge said
this would furnish Uermany a grcut 1
temptation with, her
trained men It would he a cheap
way. according to the premier, for
f.ermany to get out of her obllga-
lions. "I only ask the members to
think whether It might not have the
effect of depriving the nlllea of th
fruit of the rtearly bought victory"
Mr. Lloyd fieorga added.
Mr. Lloyd (Ieorge pointed out that
the soviet government had not been
chosen by the Russian people and
he declared that It wits as great an
aulocracy a Its predecessor.
1'och to Visit Poland
The premier announced that the
British ambassador at Herlln had
gone to Poland and eald It wa poa
slblo that Marshul Koch would go
It was to the Interest of (ireat
lirltiait and to Europe that Poland
should not be wiped out, declared
