ANOTHER "MAN'S JOB" IN WOMEN'S HANDS
Women unloading a carload of lumber in the Northern Pacific's Como shops in St. Paul. George H. Gilman,
the master car-builder, reports that the women who have taken men's placea are unusually thorough
and painstaking. This railway was one of the first to replace some of its men with women, and Is
now employing about 350 In work which has always been considered purely masculine. Among the
railway women are former milliner*, stenogratihers, dressmakers and store clerks, and they seem to
like their new work.

Potsdam Conference
Issued War Challenge,
Says uLondon Times*'
London, July 28.?An article char?
acterized as "difficult if not impossible
to doubt," regarding the origin of the
war, is published by "The Times."
The writer recalls reference to the
speech in the Reichstag last week of
Hugo Haase, leader of the Socialist
minority, as reported in the "Leipziger
Volks-Zeitung," to "the meeting, July
6, 1914," as one of the things which
must be explained before the origin of
the war is fully understood.
According to "The Times's" in?
formant, this probably will become the
most famous date of that fateful
month. He says a meeting was held at
Potsdam, those attending being tho
Emperor, Dr. von Pethmann-Hollweg,
Admiral von Tirpitz, General von
Falkr-nhayn, Dr. William von Stumm.
Under Secretary for Fcreign Affairs,
Archduke Frederick of Austria, Count
von Herchtold, Austrian Foreign Min?
ister; Count Tisza, Premier of Hun?
gary, and General Hoet7endorff. They
decided all the principal points of the
Austrian ultimatum to be dispatched
to Serbia. Eighteen days later it was
recognised that Russia probably would
refuse to submit thereto, and that war
would result, but the meeting definitely
deci'led to accept that consequence.
The Emperor then went to Norway
with the object, says the writer, of
throwing dust into the eyes of the
Frrnch and Russian governments.
La*er, when it became known that Eng?
land would not remain neutral. Dr. von
Bethmann-Hollwcg wished to withdraw,
but it was too late. Herr Haase's
reference, adds "The Times's" In?
formant, was well understood by the
majority of his hearers, for the sub?
ject was discussed in the Reichstag
Rudget Committee eight weeks pre?
viously, and created a great sensation.
The government was challenged to
deny the stoi-y, but did net.
In his address to the Reichstag Herr
Haase attacked the government's home
and foreign policy, and demanded Im?
mediate peace negotiations, atonement
for wrongs committed and the estab?
lishment of a Socialist rr-rnblic.

Pacifists' Request Elicits
1 Opinion That Its Measures
Are Treasonable
Attacks on the pacifists, who are de?
clared to be "playing Germany's game,"
were received by them yesterday in re
i sponse to their requests sent to promi?
nent persons for opinions on the value
of the peace movement.
The People's Council, 2 West Thir?
teenth Street, which claims to repre?
sent 1,200,000 pacifists in the I'nitcd
State?, wrote to Dr. Edward J. Wheeler,
editor of "Current Opinion," asking
him for an opinion on a pacifist bro?
chure by Rabbi Judah L. Magnes, which
is being widely circulated.
Mr. Wheeler replied:
Belle-*-?-*? Countiy Knows IU Mind
"To raise a general discussion of
! reace terms now, just as we are en
'' tering the war, before we have struck
a blow, before a single arm of our
service has been recruited to war
strength, seems strangely like one
more effort to substitute unlimited de?
bate for decisive action.
"I think this country knows fairly
\ well what it is fighting for, and if any
I man of intelligence doesn't know it it
j highly probable that he doesn't choose
I to know. The time to discuss peace
[ terms may come when Germany has
, withdrawn every one of her soldiers
| from the invaded soil of Belgium and
I France?not before. I think that Dr.
Magnet and the People's Council are,
i consciously or unconsciously, pluying
(iiTinany's game in raising a iirotest at
this time against material force and
the war method.
"This sort of talk may sound exalted
and noble to ear? in Berlin and
Heidelberg (where Dr. Magnes pursued
his post-graduate studies), but it
sounds ominously* like treason here."
One paragraph in Dr. Magnes's docu?
ment, to which Mr. Wheeler took ex?
ception, said:
"The oppressed and driven and help?
less peoples of all belligerents- be
they called autocracies or democracies
will not forget this crime against
I them. The people? of the worla -.??11
i surely avenge this betrayal of life."
I II. A. Wls** W?7*-o?J Answer? Baldwin
Roger N*. Baldwin, director of the
'Civil Liberties Bureau, 70 Fifth Ave?
nue, is conducting a questionnaire as
to how the country should look upon
; the conscientious objector. Henry A.
Wise Wood replied:
"I would say it Is my opinion that
, these men should be compelled to
serve, by force if necessary. All in
society who are physically able to de?
fend it from destruction must be com
[ pelled so to defend it when the emer
j gency arises and such an emergency
now confronts us. Those who at the
front refuse should be court-roartialled
and shot; those who at home refuse
should bo tried for treason and im?
prisoned.
"Also, I should like to point out to
1 you the. damage that a propaganda
like yours has dono In Russia. There
\ recently men and women like thos?*
i composing; your organization have had
full sway, with the result that must
inevitably follow ?uch leadership, that
, of complete national disintegration.
! With the Russian object lesson before
i their eyes, I do not believe that you
; will find many follower? here- that is,
. among those who aro normal mentally.
"In conclusion, my dear sir, permit
i me to say that I consider your propa?
ganda as perhaps the most insidiously
evil thing that is crawling beneath the
- foundations of our national edifice, and
I that I shall ?pare no effort to crush
it, if I can."

Hunt for Other Baff
Conspirators Goes On
Special Jury Will Continue
Work; Graff Expected to
Tell of Murder Fund
No time will be lost in continuing
the hunt for the men vrho contributed
to tho fnnd that paid for the murder
of Barnet BafT in West Washington
I Marken on November 2', 1914. The
ronviction of Joser.h Coh?n nnd Ahra
ham (?raff, two of the principal con
' spirators, on Friday evening will be
followed this week by reconvening the
special grand jury by Iieputy Attorney
| General Alfred I. ?techar.
? Mr. Becker said yesterday that Cohen
land Gruff will have nearly three weeks
in which to make up their minds
' whether they will aid the state by
I revealing the facts of the whole con
: spiracy. Cohen will be sentenced to
die in the electric chair. Graff will he
; sent to prison for a loni; term far man?
slaughter in the first degree. Scn
tenee will be pronounced on both men
; by Supreme Court Justice Tompkins on
August 17.
j "It is within the power of these men
j to bring to justice every one of the
men who contributed to the murder
fund or who had guilty knowledge of
Huff's death," said Mr. Becker yester
| *l**->'
It is thought probable that Graff
may decide to temper the severity of
his prison sentence before August 17

2,500 Youths Join
U. S. Colors From
Newsboys' House
Helped by Brace Memorial
to Do Man's Job for
Nation
Daniels Praises Work
"Have Made Remarkable Rec?
ord," Says Secretary; Gen.
Eddy Commends Patriotism
The Brace Memorial Newsboys'
House, at ? i Han chamber; street, of
which William Lewis liutcher is super?
intendent, has been one of the greatest
aids to local recruiting officers in their
campaigns to complete the enlistment
quotas of their respective organiza?
tions. Since the beginning of the
world war 2.500 youths have joined the
colors through the agency of the News?
boys' House; since the entry of the
I'nite 1 States 300 have gone from it to
sea and to mobilization centn s.
Each year nearly 2,000 boys are reg?
istered at thi* baaao. The;.* are not
necessarily all ttWtaatyt, for the day
of the friendless chap who served as
here in so many of Horatio Alger's tales
of pluck and perseverance has practi?
cally disappeared. Ranging in age
from fourteen to twenty-one, they are
boys, however, whose weekly earnings
do not total the $10 which experts have
estimated Is necessary for existence,
under present conditions, In New York
City.
About Two-thirds Are Orphans
By a rough estimate, about one-third
of this number have both parents liv?
ing; another third are orphans and the
remainder are half orphan?. A large
percentage of those with parents are
I sent to their homes; the others are
! given three meals a day for the sum
of ?2 a week, and are provided with a
! bed for 75 cents additional.
The work of interesting the boys of
' eligible years in th? acivan'ages offered
them by th?* army and the navy is car
rie?l on by the house independently of
other organ?7.,?.t?iJ7*.s, tlthOBftl commit?
tees have been organized to hold meet?
ings to stimulate recruiting In other
settlement houses, and t?tcalats prom?
ising 'hu assistance of the Sen
House in similar work to he dont bj
other organizations have bttn Mnt out.
Throughout the winter, drills wer??
held twice each week at the house,
? under the si:p.-rvi.iio:i of Lieutenant
! Kelly, of the, ?9th Infantry. Attend
anee at these drills increased Ittadil**,
: and when they were abandoned with
i the coming of summer many of iUix
boys enlisted.
As it It necessary for every appli
; cant for enlistment to havp the per
' mission of his parent or guardi?n bc
? fore acceptance, Mr. Butcher has been
? made a special guardian by the Sur
i rogates* Court, to act in the cases of
| orphan boys. Proof of the fact that
: their parents are ?lead must be pro?
vided before Mr. Butcher assumes
? guardianship, although In many cases
; he has used his good offices to induce
. parents to permit their sons to enter
? the service of the nation.
Mother Glad Boy Is Seaman
Recently a youngster who wished to
i enlist in the navy brought the superin
I tendent a letter from a police captain
! stating he was an orphan. Consider
I ing tho letter as suflieient proof Mr.
, liutcher stood sponsor for the lad and
: he was duly accepted by taat recruiting
officers. Some Unit Inter hit name was
j printed in a roll of honor in a Sen
Jersey newspaper, with the rttalt that
! an angry mother tfptnrtd on the
? scene. After much persuasion she til
i shown that the navy *,?:,? the he |
j place for the boy, and within the last
few days tht has told Mr. Butcher that
she is glad that her son is a seaman.
He is saving money for the first time
in his life and she is benefiting
thereby.
Another phase of the work done by
the Newsboys' llou-i? m furnishing
food and lodging for recruits until tho
time of their departure for training
? camps. Mr. Butcher, too, has consist
! ently furnished the dollar necessary
to secure first citizenship papers to
alien boys who wish to enlis'. and ha?
tttitttd in arranging the details ac?
companying the application for citi?
zenship.
Of the 300 boys put in government
service since the Cnited States aban?
doned its neutrality, about M per cent

Huntington, Long ??land, July 28.?
K. Trubbe Davi?on, ?on of Henry P.
Davison, of the firm of J. P. Morgan &
Co., was injured this afternoon when a
hydro-aeroplar.e in which he was mak?
ing a test flight over Huntington Ray,
, under the .?.ipi'rv.sien or' go\ernment
officials, dropped headlong from a i
! foot height and plunged into the water.
Young Davison, who is a member of
the Cnited States Reserve Flying Corps,
Patrol No. 1, was working out the flying
problem of climbing to a height of
I 6,000 feet and then descending in splr
| als. He had accomplished the major
; part of his ta?k when he shut off his
| motor to glide down to the water.
Instead of gliding, the noie of the
, machine dipped ?uddenly and came
down with a mighty splash into the
bay only a few hundred yards from
the Davison yacht, the Shuttle, on
which the government officials were
watching the flight.
A launch Immediately put out and
brought the unconscious young man to
' the yacht, where he was revived. It
was found that he had wrenched his
i neck and back badly, but that other?
wise he was unhurt. The launch then
took him to his father's home, on Pea?
cock Point, several miles away.
While this trip was being made,
; Harry Davison, the injured lad's
j brother and also a member of the fly?
ing corps patrol, flew in his own ma
I chine to the home at Peacock Point to
| inform the servants of his bro'her's
injury. By the time young Davison
was brought ashore all necessary prep?
aration? had been made to receive him.
