The strike confer ence at Caxton hall, called by the transport workers and representing: the majority of organized labor, voted today to send a deputation of eleven to confer with Premier Lloyd George at 3 p. in. today and report to the con ference at 5. Llojd George agreed to receive the committee. Arthur Henderson and Robert Clynes, president - of the National Union of General Workers, were in cluded among; the labor delegates. William C. Adamson, chairman of the labor party J in parliament and leader of the opposition there, has telegraphed to Prime Minister Lloyd George, asking that parliament should be summoned immediately. London, Oct. 1. Not since the fate ful day of August 4, 1914, have Brit ons awaited a national verdict with such anxiety as attended the meeting today of the transport workers' fed eration. Whether these men will throw their lot with the railway em ployes, making the present strike a general war between organized labor and the people, was to be determined. Crowds outside Caxton hall cheered or hissed, depending on their point of view, when delegates to the confer ence began arriving. More than 400, 000 workers were represented and al lied with these are the engineers, (Coutiuoed on Page Two.), KID GLEASON "My boys are a great bunch and they are going to be very hard to beat.

Steadily Increasing; Endurance Test in Pittsburgh. Chicago, Oct. 1. Steel mills in the Chicago district were reported work ing at 50 per cent capacity and stead ily increasing today. At Waukegan, where clashes be tween strikers and workers have been frequent, the situation was reported quiet. When the request of city offi cials for state troops was refused, 300 local business men started organiza tion of a militia company. Mills at Joliet were making steel to day for the first time since the strike started. Down To Endurance Test. Pittsburgh, Pa., Oct. 1. The steel strike today had narrowed down to a test of endurance and a battle of wits. Organizers were being rushed to the Pittsburgh district in a frantic effort to oppose operators inducing men to return. Union leaders reported the men standing firm while officials claimed slight additional gains as morning shifts took their places. Both sides were rallying their forces and prepar ing for the proposed senate investiga tion here. Quiet prevailed in all quar ters. Police at Duquesne, Rankin, and Braddock reported more men passing thru mill gates to work today than at any time since the industrial struggle started. Labor heads were hopeful of increasing their ranks substantially before nightfall. The strikers' claim of suppression of free speech was overruled in coun ty court yeterday when Judge Ken nedy sustained the action of Mayor James Crawford of Duquesne in fin ing strike leaders for alleged violation of a city ordinance by holding a pub lic meeting without a permit.

KILLED ON TRAIN Union Pacific Brakeman Mur dered STear Wamego. Body Found on Top of Car hy Conductor. At 1:45 o'clock this morning when Conductor Smith inspected his Union Pacific freight train No. 154, at Wa mego, Frank A. North way, age 28, of. Junction City, head-end brakeman, was found dead on the top of the tenth car back with a bullet hole in his back and another wound in the left knee. The murder remains a complete mystery. The theory is that he must have been shot by hoboes stealing a ride. The train was running to Wa mego from St. George. Some place during the trip, on which the train makes a t.peed of around thirty-five miles an hour, Northway was mur dered. With the feeling that something was wrong Conductor Smith made the inspection at Wamego resulting in the discovery of Northway lying dead at the top of the tonth car with a bullet hole in his bfiek. A posse of 1 men is out this morn ing searchin" t ..e country between St. George and vumego in an attempt to capture the murderer. Motor car pa trols are covering all the roads.' Sher iffs and other officials thruout the district have been notified that the murderer is at large and all efforts are directed at closing the channels of escape. It was known that a hobo boarded the train at Manhattan. Northway must have discovered the man on the train and finding hiro armed was forced to give ground. At least the shot lodged in his back. His lighted lantern was found beside him on the top of the box car. There is appar ently no reason for shooting a man who must have been walking away, but no other motive has been learned why anyone would desire to murder Northway. Northway was married. His home is at Junction City. SPENT RESTLESS NIGHT President Feeling Somewhat Jaded To day, but No Setback Indicated. Washington, Oct. 1.

ARRIVED TOO LATE Temporary Tieup in Pacific Shipyards Is Inevitable. Government Action Came After Many Men Had Struck. San Francisco. Oct. 1. With ship yard workers on strike at Tacoma, Wash.,- and Bureka, Calif., and orders for a walkout effective at all other im portant ship building centers on the Pacific coast, the general attitude of union labor officials of the Pacific coast district here today was that gov ernment action taken in Washington late yesterday had come too late to prevent at least a temporary tieup of all yards working on government ships. The controversy Is one for an aver age increase of eight cents an hour ovei the Macy scale agreement which expired at midnight last night. Re cently, in Washington representatives of the shipping board and the navy department agreed that no increased wages should be granted men working on government vessels until after the labor conference called by President Wilson to meet next Monday had com pleted its labors. The men .then ar ranged to strike. Late yesterday announcement was made by the shipping board and navy department that there would be no opposition to payment of increased wages provided the government paid no part of the increase. This an nouncement, district metal trades union labor leaders declared, came too late to enable them to call off the strike.

Government -Must Act or Men Face Ruin. CONSUMER IS NOT AFFECTED Packers Waive Blame So It Is Up to Retailer. I J.-H. fiercer Gives Out Star tling: Figures Today. Kansas cattlemen are losing an average of 950 a head on beef steers, according to a statement today by Joe Mercer, state livestock sanitary com missioner. Mercer declared that con ditions in this state were such that stockmen were not only unable to market their steers at production costs, but were selling at losses rang ing from $35 to $75 a head. Thousands of cattle are being re moved to Texas and southern ranges where they may be fed at a minimum expense this winter, the state official asserted. He said that herd owners in the big cattle counties of Butler, Greenwood, Chase, Lyon, Marion. Dickinson and other counties were seeking relief from the present situa tion. In many cases the situation is so serious as to threaten financi&J. ruin to stockmen. ' Mercer, who has returned from a conference in Washington, declared that while some relief was promised ' by federal officials, nothing short of general stabilization would save feed-! era and producers. Mercer said he j would not seek to place the blame fori continued high prices to consumers . except thru inefficient methods of re tailers. He admitted that consumers! have received little or no benefit while ! producers have lost millions. j Government Must Act. j "Some method of government aid or' suiDuizaiion musi come 10 iaers &uu nroducers." Mercer declared, "if thev ! are to escape financial ruin. These I men answered the demands of- the I government for maximum production and relied on statements that markets would remain high for at least two or three years beyond the duration of the war. c - "One trouble in the export business hs been In the hrlnlcrrof vnln. f foreign money. The war finance board has promised some relief thru lower transportation rates', over seas. But unless foreign moneys are in some de gree stabilized by this country, I do not see just how real relief can come. "In Greenwood. Lyon, Chase, Dick inson, Marion and other big cattle counties, feeders and growers are los ing an average of $50 a head on their cattle. This does not mean $r0 below a normal profit. It means $50 below the cost of producing a beef steer. The average is from $35 to as high as $75. I talked with one, shipper In Kansas City the other day who told Old me he had lost shipment. $75 a head on his bending Cattle South. , - i.i ii- from high price of feed I by shinning stock to Texas and the southern ranges. But unless better markets are afforded, I doubt if they can over- come losses on cattle already on losses on cattle already on hand.' Mercer was asked to place the re - sponsibility for the present high prices to consumers In view of producers' losses. "I can't say Just where It Is." Mer cer declared. "The packers have pro. duced detailed figures to show tha.t they have reduced the price of beef as the price of cattle went down. But the consumer hasn't benefited. The trouble may be in inefficient retail methods. Seme time ago Mercer suggested a series of retail meat markets support- ed by cattle men of the state. This plan as well as general livestock condi tions will be discussed Saturday at a big meeting of Kansas stockmen in Kmporia. CLOUDY AND COOLER Thursday Generally Fair, Is Forecast for Kansas.
