Government Can Show.
Washington, Aug. 30. Industrial
peace In the United States depends on
the results, the government can show
in the next 90 days in its campaign
to reduce the cost of living, in the
view of government officials and labor
leaders here. Three months is the
time limit tacitly set by the legislative
council of the railroad shop crafts in
suggesting to union locals throughout
the country that President Allison's
compromise offer in response to their
demand for higher wages should be
accepted pending the outcome of the
effort to restore a normal price level.
Reserve Strike Right
If the cost of living does not come
down, the 500,000 inembess of' the
shop crafts would reserve the right to
strike for more money, and with them
probably would be associated the re
mainder of the 2,600,000 railroad em
ployes, all of whom have been consid
ering the same problem.
The letter of the executive council
served to compose somewhat the un
easiness felt in official circles over

focus attention on the legal measures

Palmer and his assistant, Judge Ames,

punishing hoarders and profiteers.
