Question of Nation-!
wide Rail road
Strike Put Up to the:
Labor Board by!
Union Leaders
Cincinnati, June IS (By the Asso
ciated Press)?Formal notice was {
served tonight on the railroad labor !
board by the chiefs, of ten railroad !
unions of their intention - to go I
through with a strike in event^one j
is authorized by the 1.225.000 work- ?
ers whose wages are to be reduced j
on July l on orders of the board, j
Coupled apparently with the ac- j
?tion of the rail union leaders was a j
statement that the "railroad work
ers have no alternative except to
fight," made by John L. Lewis,
leader of the striking coal miners,
who will meet with the rail union
leaders Tuesday to consider joint j
- strike action. He also pledged the j
miners' aid to the rail men, but j
declined to state definitely what aid |
might result from joint action.
The notice was sent to the rail
road labor board in the form Of a
letter reiterating the rail union i
leaders' attitude on the threatened j
walkout, which was first definitely j
asserted in their statement issued j
here. Thursday night. The pre- :
vious statement also includes the)
declaration that, an overwhelming!
vote was being cast for the walk- j
out. In their letter to the. board
the rail men said:
"When there occurs a miscar
riage of justice of such colossal
and permanent injury to railway
labor as your decision will bring
about, the only means of remedy
which the injured parties have *s to
refuse to accept your decisions.
This procedure is perfectly. legal, j
While it should only be used as j
a last resort, our membership may i
decide it to be fully justified by your j
denial of elementary and long es- j
tablished right and by the serious- j
ness of the situation which you j
have created. Your decisions have j
been submitted to a strike vote t
of our membership and we are j
awaiting the results of their action. :
Should our members decide not to !
accept your decision or in other j
words to strike, we shall sanction
their action and advise you ac
cordingly.- -
_Mr. Lewis, the miners* 'chief.
wii?e " asserting unwillingness to
discuss the outcomer> of the con* |
Terence with the rail men, said the i
miners "will do anything' that is j
helpful and constructive for the j
railroad men and for * the miners j
themselves." . v
*T am convinced," declared" "Mr. j
Lewis, "that the railroad men and I
the. rank and file of the railroad '
organizations frankly ? recognize i
the necessity of making a fight re- j
gardiess of the consequences. - And
in: that fight they, will have the
whole souled and active : coopera- ;
tion of the mine workers. Tb#. na
ture of that cooperation defends i
upon circumstances, but* .tfee^help j
of the mine workers will ~*n<?t be j
ot small consequence:
Tfee. -presidents of the rail unions j
said in their letter te the labor
board that they had done every- j
?*hmg 7 to avert, a strike, pointed I
&utr that no appeal was possible j
Trdni* the' board's decision and as- !
serted that the union's contentions j
were that the transportation' law
required a living wage for em- j
ployees at the bottom of the scale j
of occupations, with higher rates
for other workmen, according to i
their skill, hazard of employment, !
responsibility? training and experi
ence. .
' In making wage reductions, the i
hoard was told that it had estab- !
lished the principle that . "just j
wages must await the complete s-^t- j
isfactlon of railroad ownership in j
the matter of rehabilitation and '
profits." Further, the board was!
to'id that in its last decision to cm j
ike wages of clerks, signalmen and ?
irtationary firemen it had stated as j
a "basis of action the theory, that;
labor can not be completely freed S
from the economic .laws- which I
likewise affect the earnings of cap
ital/' ?
"This means nothing more or
less," the letter said, "than :he j
treatment of labor as a commodity i
whose value fluctuates acsording to j
the demand for an dthe supply of
labor."

Miss Dorothy McClatchie, high
.school swimming star, was bitten
to death this afternoon by a bar
racuda while swimming a mile off I
the municipal pier.
Miss Mary* Buhner, also a high

more than a half mile before her
cries for help were heard. A boat
was sent out and she was brought
to the pier but bled to death be
fore they could get her to land.
. "Kiss me. Mary: my leg is gone
arid I am gone," Miss Buhner said
the McClatchie girl told her when
the fish attacked her. ?'.he fainted
into the arms of Miss Buhner, who
started to tow her to shore, more
than a mile away.
Miss Buhner collapsed tonight
and is under the car** of a physi
cian.

WILLIAM ROGERS
DROWNED IN POOL
Sank While Attempting to
Swim From One Float to
Another. Relatives Present
Columbia, June 18.?William
Anderson Rogers, 17 year old son
of Julien C. Rogers, vice presi
dent and cashier of the Liberty
National bank, was drowned at
Bauer's beach, near Camp Jack
son, at 6:30 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon. The boy could swim only
a little and after calling for help
went down about .40 feet from
the shore in sight of his father,
mother, brothers and other rela
tives who were standing on the
bank. Many other persons?prac
tically all children?were in the
pond at the time, but none could
swim well enough to rescue the
drowning boy.
William Rogers with his father
and brothers had been in the pond
and William, who could swim a
little, had gone beyond the safety
rope and was attempting to
swim from one float to another.,
Just about half way from his goal
he called for help, asking that some
one bring 'the boat." The water
where he first sank was hardly
over his head.
Persons untied the boat and row
ed out to where the boy had last
been seen. Hanging by one hand
to the side of the boat Mr. Brun,
who lives near the p?nd, located
the boy's body with his feet and
brought it to the surface. Artificial
ref^uscitation was tried. Physicians
were summoned immediately and
a pulmotor secured, all efforts
however, proving futile. /?
Mr. Rogers, the boy's father,
was unable to swim and there was
no one else nearby able to, swim
to the boy's rescue. The body
was recovered after it had been
under water only about seven or
ten minutes.
The funeral will be held at the
Shandon Methodist church at 11:30
o'clock this morning, the funeral
services to be conducted by the
Rev. Robert F. Morris, pastor of
the Shandon Methodist church.
The body will be carried to Spar
tanburg this afternoon to be inter j
red there in Oak wood cemetery.
William Anderson Rogers was j
born July 2$, 1905, and only this
year he had received his diploma
from Carlisle Fitting school at
Bamberg and was preparing to
leave in September for Wofford
college. He had been a student at
Carlisle only two years, having at
tended the Hastoc Fitting school for
one year before going to Bamberg.
He was a popular boy and had
taken considerable interest in the
Epworth league and in the Y. M.
C. A. He^ was a manly young j
boy though not an athlete.
Surviving him are: His parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Julien C. Rogers;
three brothers, Julien C. Rogers,
Jr., Frederick R. Rogers and Ed
ward Turnipseed Rogers. Mrs.% W.
A. Rogers, his grandmother, and
Miss Annie Rogers, his aunt, both
of Spartanburg, were also witness
es of the tragedy.
The news of the tragedy spread
through Columbia last night, bring- i
ing sorrow to the many friends of!
the family and the boy and last ]
night hundreds of friends called at j
the house to extend syympathy to
the bereaved parents.

; Coastal Swamp Land
Columbia, June 19.?Mount Hol
ly, in Berkeley county, is soon to |
become the seat of a model farm |
colony, according to plans made J
known here today by Captain L.
M. Fisher, director of malarial con

Service and the state* department of;
health, Captain Fisher having re
cently completed the initial ma
larial survey of the lands where
the colony is to be" founded.

Mount H,oily Development *Co.,!
headed by R. L. Montague, of j
Charleston, is promoting the farm
colony plan. The company has j
purchased eight thousand acres of
swamp land, and proposes to dem

been spent in reclamation work,
eight miles of ditches being in
cluded in the work done, f
A colony of about 100 families
of Hollanders will be brought to |
this country to settle the land, it i
is said: the land to be sold in tracts!
of from 40 to SO acres, on long!
terms. There will be about 500
Hollanders in the colony, it is said
One requirement will be that .the '?
holder of the land lfve on it at least

raised, and the Mount Holly com
pany proposes to utilize other
lands in the same way, if this ex
periment is found to be success

tivation Offset by Increased
Demands
Xew Orleans, Jun el8.?A re
! actionary tendency took possession
j of the cotton market last week
! mainly because of the advent of
I dry and hot weather in the belt,
j and prices were lower from the
i opening, although there were strong
i recoveries in the late session and
[ highest prices were reached on the
j last session of the week. Prices
j were under the closing level of the
j preceding week the whole week
I through, standing at their lowest
I !>G to 104 pointa?. under and at
j their highest 18 to 518 points under
land closing at net losses of 26 to
I 32 points. July traded at 21.44

i at its highest and finally closed at.

: middling closed at-21.88, showing a
?net loss of 27 pomts. A year ago
j middling closed at 10.75 cents a
i pound.
i During almost the" entire week
j the greater part of the belt experi
i enced dry and hot weather which,
! according to reports to local
i brokerage concerns, allowed the
S cultivators of the crop;to make fast
; progress and was considered to be
j favorable weather for the plant as
i well as the most effective thing to
j hold the activities ot the boll wee
vil down. Toward the close of the
j week rains in south-Texas caused
j buying flurries which carried the
j market to its highest levels. The
: better turn in weatfter conditions
I was mainly responsible for the sell
| ing of the week and much liqui
! dation of the long side came,
j New selling was not carried on
I aggressively because of the showing
? of statistics. The census bureau
j report on American mills for May
i brought the market support as its
! consumption 495,674 bales against
j 440,714 during the same month
I last year. Further support was de
; rived from British board of trade
I returns for May, pending textile
! exports from England at 14.200,

Washington. June 17.?Senators
supporting and opposing Henry
Ford's offer to purchase and ..lease
the government's war initiated pro
jects at Muscle Shoals, Ala., clash
ed today in a two hour"heated dis
cussion over ways and means of
developing the projects for peace
time operations.
Senator Underwood of Alabama, j
I Democratic leader, proclaimed j
j himself "a Ford man" and asked
j an opportunity to vote for th% ac- ;
i ceptance of the Detroit manufac- i
Iturer's proposal before congress j
adjourned. Senator Xorris, chair- j
man of the agriculture commit
tee which is investigating Mr.
Ford's proposal in connection with
other offers for Muscle Shoals, also
went on record. He declared he
was opposed to the acceptance of
the Ford tender or to any other
which would have the effect of
selling properties "costing the ^peo
ple $106,000,000 for $5,000,000"
and leasing those not sold to pri
vate interests for a period of 100
years.
Senator Hefiin of Alabama join- \
ed his colleague in a way that lef;t
no doubt as to his position ami
precipitated a sharp ' verbal ex
change with Senator McXary (Re
publican) of Oregon and with Sen
ator Xorris when he saidv Mr.
Ford had promised to manufacture
fertilizers and sell them at one
half their present selling price.

READY TO

FROM CHINA
Japan Has, Notified
Other Powers o f
Willingness to Re
move Troops
Baltimore, June IS (By the As
sociated Press).?Japan has enter
ed into negotiations with the oth
er powers maintaining troops" in"
China looking to the withdrawal
of all foreign troops from that
country. Sadao Saburi charge
da'affaires of the Japanese em
bassy, declared in an address today
at the First Unitarian church. Mr.
Saburi referred to a "recent order
rernaying Japanese troops from
Hankow, and declared the Japa
nese minister at Peking has been
instructed by his government to
Stake up tire matter of withdrawal
of other troops with the represen
tatives of the countries interested.!
"Japan hopes that all the other
foreign troops stationed in Peking'
and other places according to the
protocol signed after the Boxer
rebellion of 1900 will be with
drawn as soon as order is restor
ed in China,*-. he added.
Japan's policy toward the Wash
ington conference, and the result
I attained there has undergone; no A
j change from the time when the *
idea was suggested to the pres- .
enr day,v Mr. Saburi said, adding
that "the spirit of the head of the
New Japanese government is iden
tical with that of Premier Hara,
under whose guidance the coun
try's policy at the conference was
formed.
"Gr^eat stress has been laid and ?
most properly on the economic as
pect of reduction In naval arma
; ment," the charge declared. "But
i of far greater importance?indeed V
? the greatest benefit of -a.11 those
j produced by the conference?is the
I spirit manifested by the confor?
I ring nations" in Washington. It
amounted to a plain declaration
j of the 'Will to peace.' The confer
i ence gave us reason to hope for
f a general advance toward a world
! where good will may be allowed tcr
' keep the peace.
j "Before the conference cobJi
tions surrounding our xtetititn^
were not what they- are today. / It *
j is not, of course, for me to say
i that there were in this "country
j those who expected war with Jftr
' pan npr tha: there were those In
[ other countries who-desired it, but
; I do say that in Japan there wore
j many who feared" war between our
j two countries-)... .._ There was dis
| trust and doubt that our historic
j f riendship could continue unbrok
j en?fear that a break might come
between us and, that trouble might
! ensue. _ _. _ i :>
"When wf came to the confer- '-.
i ence it was nnder a -dark sky of
j suspicion born of ignorance, bat
when we' arrived,' we: met only
generosity. There wa3/ a spirit -of i
conciliation and good will manifestf,
at every moment, and after the
conference o"r people returned
home warm in the clear sunlight
of friendship." . ?.
