Imperator Is
Taken Over by
Shipping Board
l. S. to keep ii Bi? German
Vessels and Transfer to
Cimard and Other British
Sliip Lines Is Halted
V\ AS1?INGT0N, S?pt. 27.- Eight Ger?
man liners, including the former Ham
burg-American steamer Imperator, sec
oj i largest ship in the world, allocated
to the United States by the Inter-Al?
lied Shipping Commission after the
signing of the armistice and used to
bi ng home American troop.?, are to be
retained by the United States. Plans
to place them in passenger and freight
service are being prepared by the Ship?
ping Hoard.
The Imperajtor had beer, allocated by
the Allied Naval Commission at Paris
to Great Britain, arid the British Min?
is ei of Shipping expected that the
ship would be delivered to him to-day
at Hoboken for use by the Cunard Line
in service between New York and Eng?
land. The Shipping Board announced
to-day, however, that it had taken the
liner over from the War Department
and ordered a survey to determine re
pairs^necessary for use as a liner.
,T. n. Rosseter, director of the divi?
sion of operations of the board, issued
to-night the following statement:
"It is understood by the United
State- Shipping Board that the Im?
perator, Kaiserin Aug-usta Victoria and
? six other ex-German snips now in New
? York were allocated to the united
, Suites under the terms of peace, and
; the board therefore assigned these ves
? sels to the War Department for the
| repatriation of troops. This service
? being now performed the chairman of
I the board requested the War Depart
1 ment to deliver the ships to the United
I States Shipping Board. Accordingly
| the War Department this morning re
; delivered the Imperator at New York
| to the Shipping Board representatives."
While no officia] of the board would
i stand sponsor for the statement, it was
! understood that the action of the board
j in retaining the ships was u direct re?
sult of a decision by the Supreme Eco
\ nomic Council at Brussels, to allocate
; to the Allies twelve oil tank steamers
j in German ports which the Standard
: Oil Company of New Jersey contends
I are its property. The ships wcro op
! crated under the German flag, but the
I company claimed they belonged to its
German subsidiary.
Under Secretary of State Polk, head
; of the American peace delegation at
! Paris, has sought to have the twelve
oil ships allocated for the transporta?
tion of oil from the United States to
Germany. The representatives of the
five great powers at Paris agreed, but
the Supreme Economic Council, on
which the United States is not now
represented, ordered Germany to turn
? the vessels over to the Allies.
In announcing that the Shipping
Board would retain tlu eight German
liner.;, I\ir. Rosseter said their alloca?
tion to the United States was perma?
nent. When the ships were delivered
by the Germans in England the Ship?
ping Board, it was explained, turned
them over to the War Department for
use as transports, and has now taken
them back for commercial employment.
Great. Britain has contended that the
allocation of the eight liners by the
inter-Allied commission was only tem?
porary, and that when the need for the
ships as troop transports had passed
they were to revert to the Allied pool
for permanent allocation among the
Allied and associated nations.
The eight former German liners, in
eluding the Imperator, are to be turned
over to the Shipping Board by the War
Department as soon aa necessary sur
ve> s can be made.
Besides the Imperator, the ships are
the Kaiserin Angust?' Victoria, Cap
Finist?re. Graf Waldcrsee, Prinz Fried
rich* Wilhelm, Pretoria, Mobile and
Zeppelin. All of the vessels are now
in port in this country, most of them
at New York.
A representative of the Cunard Line
said last night that General F. P.
Hines, of the Port of Embarkation, re?
quested the line to take the Imperator
to the Cunard Pier at 1 p. m., yester?
day, but later sent word that the trans?
fer could not be made as he had been
requested to deliver the biir vessel to
the United States Shipping Board.
"Somebody will have to pay a big
bill for this mix-up," said the Cunard
official. "We have already started to
this country the crew that was to man
the Imperator and we will have about
eight or nine hundred men on our
hands unless the vessel is allocated to
us. Captain Smith, of the Caronia. is
here wailing to take command of the
vessel. Fortunately we have not
booked any passengers, but we have a
large waiting list." "

Shut-Down of
Printing Plants
Expected Oct. 1
Employers and Union Offi?
cials Agree That There Is
Little Hope for Settle?
ment of Hours Dispute
Both union printers and employers
in the book and job printing industry
{ in New York yesterdav afternoon
agreed that a general shutdown o?
business probably would be brought
about on October 1.
The employers announced that they
had exhausted every device at their
disposal to bring; about a peaceful set?
tlement of the differences between
themselves and their men by arbitra?
tion. Members of the unions that have
arbitration agreements which cease to
be effective after October 1 refuse to
arbitrate their demand for a forty-four
hour week.
Chief among the unions in the latter
class is Typographical Union No. 6,
which will hold a mass meeting at New j
Star Casino, 115 East 107th Street, thi3
afternoon. The call Tor this afternoon's
meeting says that "a strike vote may
be taken." It was considered certain
last night that it would be taken.
There was less certainty, however,
that the men would vote to walk out,
because of ?he complications that, would
grow out of such action. The interna?
tional union of printers, through its
officers, already has approved the plan
of the employers to put the forty-four
hour week in force throughout the
country on May 1, 1921. Should the
local union decide to strike, a breach
with the international would result. It
was predicted that the New York local,
should it refuse to arbitrate, might,
lose its charter and be outlawed, as
havo four other unions of the print?
ing industry here.
Won't Jeopardize Cards
"You may be certain we are not go?
ing to take any action that will cost us
our card? in the International," was the
only comment Leon Rouse, president of
"Big (>," would say when aslted about
his plans.
William Green, chairman of the labor
committee of the Printers' League and'
head of the printing corporation that
bears his name, sent a letter yesterday
to customers of that firm, in which he.
said that a shutdown on October 1 was
probable. Similar letters were sent
out by every other printing and pub?
lishing house in the league.
After explaining the demands of the
printers and the attitude of the Inter?
national Union against a strike, the let?
ter says:
"Of far greater importance, however,
?han the question of wages and hours
in the entire situation is the. funda?
mental question of the stability of the

LONDON, Sept. 27.- England awoke
this morning to face the gravest na
tional strike in the country's history.
Overnight nearly a million railway '
workers qui* their jobs, forcing other!
iniMions to go idle through inability to
reach their places of business. The
paralysis of transportation lines is
nearlj complete.
Although the halt of traffic came so
suddenly as to seem almost: unreal, its
effect'1 are. already spreading rapidly
into other of the nation's greatest in?
dustries. The factories of Northern !
England will be forced to close within j
a few days. The mines nave been hard
hit. The food situation is precarious.
The country is confronted with the
moat serious situation since the black-,
est days of the war.
London's millions, v->iked to work
this morning?at least the vast major?
ity o" those who, living within reason?
able distance, couldn't fi>?ht their way
aboard the overcrowded 'buses and
motor lorries thai the government
pressed into service is some areas.
The government regards, the situa?
tion as a strike against the community
and not as an effort to better labor's
position. Premier Lloyd George an?
nounced that the strike, would be re- ;
sisted and the., agitators behind it
fought with all the resources at the |
nation's command.
Military Forces Used
A special organization is being !
formed rapidly to handle the situation.
At present no military forces are be?
ing need to run the trains, but thou- !
sands of soldiers hy.ve been called
into the city and all day have given '
armed protection to those groups of
workers who volunteered to man the
locomotives and ars. Since the
strikers left their posts bodies of ?
troops have been stationed at cross
ings and on main thoroughfares
throughout the city, prepared to '
check trouble.
The strikers walked out almost unan- j
imously in England, Scotland and j
Wales. In Ireland the men have been j
advised to Stay on the job for the !
present.
F'eeble attempts were made this j
morning in London to move traffic. One ?
train, the Continental Express, from j
the Victoria Station, bound for a Chan-1
nel port, pulled out of the, city early i
in the day, manned by non-union work-1
ers, but it was forced to run slowly j
and made no-attempt to keep to ached]
ule.
AU the subways are at a standstill j
and the stations closed, with soldiers ;
guarding them.
Trams and 'Buses to Stop.
The railway men said that the trams
and 'buses, which throughout the day
have struggled hopelessly through the
maze of congestion of pedestrians and |
overloaded vehicles, would stop running!
at midnight to-night and leave the city I
helpless.
LONDON, Sept. 27 (By The Asso?
ciated Press).?Two great railway or?
ganization?, the National Union of
Railwaymen and tho Associated Society j
of Engineers and Firemen. have ;
stopped work." Allies of the former,
the Miners' Union and the Transport
Workers, including the dock employes,
are expected to join in the walkout.
H. Bundy, secretary of the Vehicle
Workers' Union, which includes 'bus,
tramway and taxicab amployes, said
thi* afternoon the men would vote to?
night to strike in support of the rail?
waymen.
To-night a great mass meeting of
railway men was held in Albert Hall,
at which James Henry Thomas, secre?
tary of the National Union of Railway
men?after the audience for an hour
had 6ung "The Red Flag"?delivered a
heated speech of censure against the
government, and declared that trouble
was brewing which might lead to blood?
shed.
A lengthy verbatim report issued of?
ficially to-night concerning Friday's
conference between the government
and railway men shows that Secre?
tary Thomas asked for a minimum of
fc60 "shillings a week for all workers.
Mr. Lloyd George admitted that the
railway men before the war had been
"disgracefully underpaid."
Can Hold Out Three Weeks
The National Union of Railwaymen,
and tho Amalgamated Society of Loco?
motive Engineers and Firemen claim
with their reserve of ?1,500,000 ($7.
500,000) to be able to pay each striking
member one pound a week for three
weeks, before which timo they' are
confident they will win.
The English Channel steamers and
railway boats plying the Irish Sea
probably will be tied up, cutting^ off

ON" BOARD THE PRESIDENT'S
TRAIN, COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 27.?
President Wilson, following his pros- ,
tration from nervous exhaustion at
Wichita, Kan., early yesterday, .-pent ,
to-day in bed after passing what Ad?
miral Gary T. Grayson. his Physician, |
called a "fairly restful night." Dr. |
Grayson added that Mr. Wilson's con- |
dition is about the same as it was
early yesterday, when all of the Presi?
dent's engagements, were cancelled on
account of his illness.
Two bulletins, we're issued to-day
by Dr. Grayson. The latest, given out
in the afternoon, saic?.
"The condition of the President
this afternoon shows no very material
change since this morning, but he
has benefited from the sleep and
rest of the early hours of the day."
Has a Restful Night
The first bulletin was issued just be?
fore the Presidential train, which is
speeding toward Washington, reached
Indianapolis. It read:
"The President's condition is about.
the same. He has had a fairly rest?
ful night."
As the train neared Pittsburgh, run?
ning at a rate in excess of most ex?
press trains. Dr. Grayson objected to
the pace, and it fas decided to slacken
it during the night. It was understood
Mr. Wilson became uneasy at the way
the train was speeding, and that Dr.
Grayson decided a slower pace would
be advisable in the interests of the pa?
tient's comfort.
At the rear-end of the train, the
President's private car had the hard?
est jolts as the special cracked around
curves and bumped over switches. Un?
der the. new schedule, no attempt will
be made to reach Washington until 11
o'clock to-morrow morning."
Still Has Headache
Dr. Grayson issued no further for?
mal bulletin, but he told inquirers late
to-night that the President was doing
"as well as could be expeted." "He
still suffrs from headaches and ner?
vousness," said Dr. Grayson. "but he
has secured a little refreshing sleep
and retained some nourishing food. 1
believe he will respond to the simple
treatment of completo rest."
The President to-day notified the
State Department, ?:: the advice of;
Dr, Grayson, to have some one other
than the President welcome King
Albert of Belgium upon the Belgian
ruler's arrival at New York.
It is understood that the President
will take a rest for about a month and
in that time he will not, unless he
rapidly improves, be allowed to do any
routine work that can be put off. He
may stay in Washington, where he will
arrive to-morrow morning, or he may I
go to some nearby spot, where it will
be impracticable for him to be dis?
turbed with matters of state.
Crowds at Stations
Things around the President's car,
the Mayflower, are kept as quiet as
possible. There are small crowds at al!
the stations and salvos of cheers are
heard above the clinking of the wheels,
but the President, in spite of the racket,
with the help of Mrs. Wilson and Dr,
Grayson, gets in a little sleep.
Dr. Grayson is entirely frank in his
talk with the correspondents, and does
not try to conceal his apprehension
over the President's condition. His of?
ficial bulletin described the ailment as
"physical exhaustion," and the feeling
is general that the President may be
in for a long sick spell. His cough
doe3 not abate. He contracted it in
Paris, and during two of his addresses
he stopped to apologize for it. It is
not yielding to treatment as Dr. Gray?
son would wish and prevents sound
slumber. .
By remaining in bed nearly all day
the President was said to have regained
some of the loss ol* strength which fol?
lowed hi* nervous attack of yesterday,
Mr. Wilson sat up a short time dur?
ing the early afternoon, but Dr. (?ray
son, enforcing strictly his rule of abso?
lute rest, did not permit his patient to
give attention to executive affairs or
to exert himself in any other way.
The physician spent virtually the en?
tire day with the President and in?
sisted on keeping his mind away from
the cares of his office and of the treaty
fight.
Wife Acting a? Nurse
During the entire day Mrs. Wilson,
too, was in constant attendance upon
her husband, insisting upon acting as
his-nurse and ministering in person to
many of hi* wants.
Dr. Grayson seemed particularly
pleased at the rest which the Presi?
dent was able to get during last night
and this morning. Throughout the
evening and early night Mr. Wilson
had been restless, but in the early
morning he fell into a sound sleep
which lasted for several hours. Al?
though still weak, h rest during the
night helped him to pass a more com?
fortable day.

Wilson Blamed
By Tittoni for
Italy's Unrest
:\1 in ister Says He Hoped De
parture of President From
Paris Would Facilitate
Task of Rome Delegation
ROME, Sept. 27 (By The. Associated
Press).?-Tomasso Tittoni, Foreign Min?
ister, speaking in the Chamber of Dep?
uties to-day, devoted most of his at?
tention to the status of President Wil?
son in the peace activities. The For?
eign Minister said he had suffered
dai!y anguish' over the delay in the
settlement of Italy's problems, declar?
ing it was thought that the departure
from Paris of President. Wilson would
facilitate the task of the Italian dele?
gates.
On the contrary, Signor Tittoni as-,
serted, it had been made more serious
and complicated, as the American peace
delegation had to communicate with
the President by cable, which made
delay inevitable.
"The question of our relations with
President Wilson will have to be
cleared up some day," the Foreign Min- .
ister continued. "The inquiry must
not, be limited to the period commenc?
ing with the opening of the peace con?
ference, but must go back to the time
of the intervention of tho United
States in the war, and even further. ;
"From the time of President Wilson's
manifesto in November, 1916, it was.
clear he intended to become an arbiter
between the combatants. After the
intervention of the United States, this
characteristic of arbiter became accen?
tuated from December 27, 1917, our
foreign ministry was informed that
President Wilson would be considered
in Great Britain as the supreme arbi?
ter, be it for continuation of the war
'<r for the drafting of peace terms.
Some of our diplomatic agents warned
the government it was necessary to
secure without delay President Wil?
son's support for our national claims "
Signor Tittoni said thai when the
war was ended with victory, he was'
convinced Italy would he given recog?
nition of her national aspirations pro?
portionate to her sacrifices.
"On the contrary," he added, "the
Italian peace delegates had to engage
in a daily struggle to obtain merely
partial lecognition of Italy's national
programme. The peace conference had
to forego its principal task of drafting
peace terms and change, itself into an
assembly to settle the fate of the
whole of Europe, to create new states,
to fix new frontiers and to govern
Europe. If the peace conference is
not or cannot be replaced by the league
of nations, it is impossible to foresee
when the activities of the conference
will end."
Germans Ordered

Allies Demand Withdraw?

PARIS, Sept. 27.? Tho Supreme
Council decided to-dav to send to the ?
German government, through Marshal
Foch, a note demanding the evacua?
tion of Lithuania by German troops
under drastic penalties for non-com?
pliance.
The note informs Germany that her
provisioning will be immediately
stopped and the financial arrange?
ments she has requested be held up if
Lithuania is. not evacuated.
Mob Tears Up Bibles
In "Mission to Jews"
Jews mobbed the Williamsburg Mis?
sion to Jews at 235 South Fourth
Street, Brooklyn, again yesterday.
Smashing a pane of glass they gained
entrance to the place during the tem?
porary absence of the police guard,
tore up two Bibles and broke furniture.
The Rev. O. S. Hinz and his assist?
ant, John Englander, were attacked
on their way to conduct services last
nigh, and reached the cordon of
patrolmen about the mission dis?
hevelled and panting. Six patrolmen
stood gaurd outside while thev con?
ducted services within.
The Jews attacked the place, the
police say. because they regard it as
an outpost of Christianity in their ter?
ritory, which is tryir-s to win converts,
and becau.--e of their objection to a
sign above the mission which is in?
scribed: "Jesus Christ. Israel's Mes?
