SUSPICIOUS — RESIGNS With Others, Is Charged With Conspiracy Through Labor's Peace Council. Xi w York, May 4.—Former Repre sentative Frank Buchanan received .$".,000 for his services as president of Tabor's National Peace Council, ac cording; to testimony given today by Finest Robin, secretary of the Central Federated union of this city, who was treasurer of the council. Buchanan is on trial with Captain Franz Itintclen of the German navy and six others on charges of conspiring through the council to foment strikes which would disrupt the munitions trade of the en tente allies in this country. Mr. Bohm said his information as to Buchanan's remuneration came from Henry R. Martin, one of the defend ants. who was active in the council's affairs. Martin, he said, complained because Buchanan had resigned as president of the organization, giving up duties that lie had been paid to per form. Rohm declared Buchanan "only smiled" when asked about the report that he had received $0,000. The witness testified that while con nected with the council he felt uneasy i as to the sources of the funds, with which it was financed. He several Times asked Martin and other defend ants for the truth because he felt that, jas a, labor representative, he was re sponsible to his organization. He al ways was assured, he said, that the money came from "business persons" who sympathized with the peace move nant. In his testimony Bohm definitely connected Ruchanan, Martin, former Representative II. Robert Fowler, Da - vid Lamar, Jacob ( \ Taylor, Frank S. Monett and Henry Sehulteis with the work of the council. He had several conferences, he asserted, with the de fendants, in regal'd to the projects of the council and was directed by Mar tin to get in touch with "Friisky" who was "one of the business people sym pathizing with the purposes of the council," he was told. It has been shown that Krusky was an assumed name used by Lamar. Bohm was cross-examined for sev eral hours by counsel for the* defense, but made* no mate rial change In bis testimony.

OFFERS SUGGESTIONS Success for Country Depends Largely Upon Efficiency of Carriers. Washington, May 4.—An appeal to the railroads to show what they can do for their country, by instituting op erating reforms and economies during the war, was issued tonight by the National Defense Council's general railroad board. Definite recommendations arc made in the statement, including longer lo comotive runs, heavier loading of cars, quicker handling at terminals, reduc tion of idle time and local meetings among railroad employes and officials to impress upon every railroad man the necessity of dolngtiis full patriotic duty. Already the roads of the country are operating a s a unit in the interest of national defense, and the detailed rec ommendations of the board worked out after exhaustive conferences, form the program by which the administration expects to bring to a basis of war ef ficiency every portion of the 362,000 miles of road which make up the greatest national transportation system in the world. The hoard, whose membership also constitutes a special defense commit tee of the American Kailway associa tion, addressed itself to rte roads through the association. Tiie members are: Fairfax Harrison of the Southern. Howard Elliott of the Npv Haven, Hale Holden of the Bur lington, Julius Kruttschnltt of the Southern Pacific; Samuel Rea, of the Pennsylvania; Daniel Willard of «the Ityltimnre At Ohio and Commissioner Edgar E. Clark of the interstate com morre eomiiRssioti. In a statement tonight Mr. Harrison, chairman of the body, characterized the reforms recommended as "an ab solute necessity if the railroads are to do their full share in the defense of the nation." The appeal points out that the war lias brought a large increase in traf fic, overtaxing the capacity of the roads as at present operated, and re vealing a shortage of rolling stock, skilled and unskilled labor and sup plies of fuel and equipment. Increased efficiency in all of these departments Is urged. AMERICAN CASUALTIES. Ottawa. Ont..
