WORKING HARD ON CASH OUESTION PRESIDENT'S CONFERENCE WITH THE SUB-COMMITTEE 16 IM PORTANT ONE. TO HOLD SPECIAL SESSION Meeting May Be Held Much Earlier Than Has Been Antici pated. sY ASSOCIATED PESS,. Oyster Bay, Aug. zI.-President Roose vek's conference with the members of the sub-committee of the senate finance com mittee was not concluded until the small hours of this morning. The whole subject of financial legisla tion at the approaching session of con gress was discussed thoroughly. One fact of distinct importance was de. veloped at the conference. While an ex traordinary session of congress next fall is assured it has not been determined definite ly whether it will be called to meet in Oc tober or in December. It has been supposed the extraordinary session would convene Monday, Novem ber g, but the indications now are that it will be called for an earlier date, perhaps several weeks earlier. The primary purpose of the extraordi nary session will be to enact legislation making operative the Cuban reciprocity treaty, but financial legislation also will be pressed upon the attention of congress soon after it convenes. It can be said the senate finance commit tee will draft no measure formally and conclusively until consultations have been held with other members of the senate democrats as well as republicans-and with members of the house and with the best authorities on finance in the country.

A Lawless Organization. "No man, I take it, can object to any kind of association, labor or other, which is organized for lawful and beneficial pur poses, but organized labor as it is con ducted today, stands convicted by its own leaders as a lawless organization. "In that it seeks by physical force to override individual rights and is contin ually railing against the laws and de nouncing courts and public officials for en forcing tlhese laws it fulfills all the re quirements of the definition of mob ocracy. A Standing Mob. "Unlike the lynching bees and the vigi lance committees, it is what might be termed a standing mob, unfair discipline by its officers, and ready upon occasion to commit the overt act of outrage and de struction which are the outward manifes tation of the mob spirit. "It declares, in effect, that its will Is superior to traditions, government regu lations and even the constitution of the country. It asserts that the Individual has no right that cannot be taken from him, and that, therefore, it has the right to say that no man shall work and that no industry shall run without its consent."
