WASHINGTON, July 28 Tentative
proposals looking to the ending of the
ailroad strike were drawn up at a
conference between President Hard

will be forwarded to the railroad ex

will meet in New York on Tuesday
to consider the questions connected
with strike settlement. He said that
no "definite basis had been proposed
to him.
It i3 believed that union heads and
President Harding discussed tentative
settlement plans on a basis of the re
storation of seniority rights. Should
the executives accept the plan, it is
reported that a rehearing of the issues
that led to the strike will be held by
the railroad labor board.
Unions heads declared they would
not comment upon the conference with
Harding except to say that every is
sue was considered.
It is believed to be the intention of
President Harding to attempt to per
suade the railroad executives to re
cede from their stand on the subject
of seniority rights rather than to use
force and in case his efforts at persua
sion shall prove unsuccessful, it is
believed he will declare the execu
tives responsible for the continuance
of the strike.
Dean Not Known

McCandless Sought
By Federal Powers
HONOLULU. July 27 The land
commission this morning visited the
tract of 2784 acres which the federal
government proposes to exchange
with the territory and L. L. McCand
less for the Helena tract in the Scho
field Barracks reservation which the
government desires to secure for mili
tary purposes.
The tract desired by the government
is 254.01 acres which was purchased
by McCandless from Kahanuu Meek,
a widow in 1916 for $11,800. It is said
McCandless asks $G0,000 for the tract
and there is available for its purpose
in federal appropriation only $"0,000.
To get around the difficul'y a tri
partite exchange is proposed.
What the exchange proposes is that
the President of the United Stales
deed back by executive order to the j
territorial government a portion of the j
Waimanalo military reservation; then j
that certain territorial lands of at'

Bonus In Sight Is
Planters' Belief
HONOLULU, July 27 Sugar plant
ers say that for the first time this
year employees of the plantation com
panies may secure a bonus. With the
sugar price at 5.34 conditions warrant
the belief that prices will remain
above 5 cents during the remainder
of the month.
Under the new schedule of pay
ments the bonus starts at 5 percent
when raws sell at 5 cents and rise
at the rate of 15 percent to every
cent advance in price.
If the average price for this month
shall be 5.20 the bonus rate will be
7 percent.
