G Increase in Freight Rate Asked New Insurgent Unions in Last April's Strikes Do Not Share Award Made to Eighteen Groups CHICAGO, July 20 (By The Asso? ciated Press).?Whether the specter of a nation-wide rail strike has been ?aid by the $000.000,000 wage in? crease granted to-day to more than 1,800,000 railroad employees re? mained undecided to-night. Brotherhood officials, after all-day conferences, made no attempt to con? ceal their disappointment that they did not get all of the billion-dollar increase they had asked. The belief pew, however, in the absence of any talk of an imm?diate strike, that the ani?n officials would submit the ?ward, probably without recommend to a referendum of the men. A decision on this point was prom? ised to-morrow by W. G. Lee, of Cleveland, grand president of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen. Railroad representatives accepted ar philosophically, and im tely set about plans for pass? ing the $600,000,000 addition to their ?age budget along to the ultimate eonsuraer, in this case the man who pays the freight. Roads \sk Rate Advance Armed vanee knowledge as to what the award would provide, the railroads had their figures ready. Judge P.. M. Barton, chairman of the Railroad Labor Board, had hardly Handed down its decision when E. T. Whiter, representing the more than 400 carriers involved, announced that '.he roads would need an increase of IS per cent in freight rates to meet The Interstate Com? merce Commission will be asked to spread the increase over both freight ?r.d passenger rates. The $600,000,000 awiwd represents a 21 per cent increase in the pay of the I men. For the first time in history the roans' pay rolls this year billion dollar mark. Mr. Whitei stimated the 1920 pay rolls more than double the :r. 1916. The board's ??ward was made retro lay 1. with provision that ? three months falls' due ' 1. when 5100,000,000 is to be addition to the regular pay. Yard service engineers, firemen F-'??! hi received an hourly increase of 1- cents, will get the btg -: pay checks, their three ' awtftd totaling $110.16. Percentages Are Uneven In its decision the board followed the broad general policy laid down by the Lane Commission, appointed in l?iS, that the man who received the least should get the most. On a per ttntage basis the biggest increases *ent to the unskilled and semi-skilled tabor, whil he conductors, engineers and shop crafts, the so-called "aris? tocracy of the road." received smaller The ble exception to this rule was the yard service men, ?ts an hour increase topped Here, the board explained. rs were the extreme i limb and degree of Today's award, if it is accepted by we men, will bring to a close, at least lor the present, the board believes, the Irly endless cycle of wage de? mands from the railway workers. Start? ing with the demands of 1916, which ?ere met for a time by passage of the damson law, there hns been an almost continuous procession of rail unions before various government boards and commissions, all demanding changes in Pay. U. S. Had Asked Truce Tjen the government took control y the roads in December, 1917, it pending requests from many ?mons for more money. The Lane Com? mission responded with a graduated ??ale ranging from a 43 per cent lli "ease for the poorest paid men to nothing for those getting above $249 a month. A series of adjustments fol? ded. Less than a year later, in Jan ??17, 1919, Director.

Pennsylvania Road Accepts Wage Award PHILADELPHIA, July 20.?It was announced by the Pennsyl? vania Railroad to-day that "in accordance with the transporta? tion act of 1920, creating the Railroad Labor Board, the Penn? sylvania Railroad will stand by the award. It will, however, in accordance with that same act, expect the Interstate Commerce Commission to take this wage in? crease into consideration in de? ciding pending rate cases so that the railroads may be enabled to meet such increase."

C. at Once ; | Quick Ruling Expected From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, July 20.?Railroad i executives will ask the Interstate Com m er ce Commission to increase passen- | ger fares one-half a cent a mile to pro vide a part of the funds needed to meet I higher wage costs. The railroads are confronted with the necessity of raising $600,000,000 a year as a result of the award of the Railroad Labor Board in Chicago, an? nounced to-day. The executives, it is understood, believe that not more than half this amount should come from freight rate increases. Tax on Pullman Seats Passenger fares, at three cents a mile, now yield approximately $1,200, 000,000 annuiilly. An increase of half a cent a mile would add $200,000,000 to this amount. Another hundred million would be derived from other sources. A surtax ! of half a cent a mile on Pullman travel, | it is estimated, would produce $50,000. 000. Higher commutation rates, bag- | gage charges, higher express rates and j other sources, it is figured, can be made to produce $50,000,000 more, That would leave $300,000,000 to come from freight rates, and would mean an increase of approximately 9 per cent. This would be in, addition to the re- j quests for rate increases now pending i before the Interstate Commerce Com? mission. The Eastern and Southern roads are asking 30 per cent and the Western roads 23 per cent. The executives are planning to go before the commission as soon as pos? sible. They are now' determining just how the award of the Railroad Labor Board applies to the roads in the dif? ferent territories. Law Is Mandatory The .ransportation act stipulates the commission shall fix rates at a point to yield 5\b per cent, or more, on the value of the railroads. The law is mandatory in its direction that in? creased labor costs shall be met by an adjustment of rates. It is expected the commission will hand down its decision on the requests now pending, as well as for those to be made as a result of wage increases, at the same time. The Federal guaranty of pre-war income expires September 1, by which date it is ex? pected higher rates will be in effect to prevent further operating deficits. -? Mother and Child Perish in Flames Two Other Children Die After Being Rescued in Jersey City Blaze - Fire overwhelmed Mrs. Piaseda Pol ski and her three small children as '. they slept last night in the three-story ! frame house at 611 Summit Avenue, | Jersey City. The mother and one of I the children were burned to death as j they lay in bed. The other two were j rescued by firemen, but died shortly after reaching City Hospital. The woman's husband keeps a saloon ' on the first floor of me building. It j is there that the blaze started. It is j said it was caused by an explosion of alcohol. By the time the engines arrived the flames, rushing up to the second floor, had driven out seven persons who had been slumbering. Mrs. Polski and her children had not appeared. Firemen at the risk of their lives ventured into the furnace and brought out a little girl, about three, whose first name is not known, and a baby boy, about a year old. They were dying even then and succumbed only a few minutes after the ambulance reached the hos pita!. Polski, who was in the saloon when I j the exposion occurred, made his escape. ; The body of his wife and his oldest daughter, Leokadya, ten, were found in the ruins. The burning house is near the Five Corners, a traffic center, and the crowd that gathered taxed the patience and strength of the reserves to keep them in order. Only one alarm was turned in. The blaze was confined to the single building. Republicans Raising Huge Sum,Says Cox Declares Size of Fund To Be Used Against Him Will "Stagger Sensibilities of Nation" Pledges His Party To an Accounting George H. White Chosen as National Chairman to Succeed Cummings COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 20.?Charges that the Republicans were raising a campaign fund "sufficient to stagger the sensibilities of the nation" were made to-night by Governor James M. Cox in an address to the Democratic National Committee, which perfected organization for the campaign. The Democrats, Governor Cox de? clared, will insist upon continuance of the Senatorial investigation of cam? paign collections and expenditures and also will make frequent and detailed accountings of their finances. The Democratic platform, he de? clared, is "a promissory note" which will be paid in full. He closed his ad? dress with a prediction of a November victory. Whito Named Chairman Governor Cox's address, together with brief supporting remarks by Franklin D. Roosevelt, his running mate, fol? lowed the election of George H. White, former Representative, of Marietta, Ohio, as chairman of the Democratic National Committee and manager of the party campaign. He succeeded Homer S. Cummings, of Connecticut, who has served for eighteen months and who desired to be relieved for other campaign duty. Mr. White was chosen after Edmond H. Moore, Ohio national committeeman, had declined the chairmanship because of personal reasons P.r,d made possible Mr. White's election by resigning from the committee and giving way to him. Much of the campaign details were left to Chairman White. He was au? thorized to appoint a special campaign sub-committee, probably of fifteen members, and to arrange other details. The committee did not fix the dates for notifying Governor Cox and Mr. Roosevelt of their nominations, but the candidates and the new chairman ten? tatively chose Saturday, August 7, for that of Governor Cox at hia home, Trail's End, at Dayton. The following Monday, August ?.*, was selected for similar ceremonies for Mr. Roosevelt at his home at Hyde Park, N. Y. Governor Cox's statements regarding Republican campaign funds and his pledge of Democratic conduct were made in a half-hour address upon the retirement of former Chairman Cum? mings and the induction of Chairman White. "We purpose to deal with eminent good faith with the electorate with reference to platform pledges," said Governor Qpx, who was cheered re? peatedly. "We do not want publication of ex? penditures after election. We want the voters to be fully advtsed as to every circumstance of the collection and ex? penditure of funds in order that they may understand that when Democracy continues its duty it assumes it with? out any obligation except the con? science God gave us. Budget of Full Details "Let us make up a budget that will carry the fullest details, render an accounting weekly or monthly. "And, more than that, we shall in? sist on the Senatorial committee in? vestigating campaign funds continuing in session until the ballots have been closed in November. "You all know full well," Governor Cox continued, "that a campaign fund sufficient to stagger tlie sensibilities of the nation is now being formed. If they believe that is proper God speed them in their enterprise. It will be one of our chief assets in the cam naiirn." Governor Cox asked the national ] committee members to take assurance j to all local orijanization leaders and1 also "the men in the front trench that j the platform of the Democratic party is a promissory note." "I shall see," he said, "that it is paid in full, every dollar and every cent. "We enter the campaign not hope? fully," he continued, "but in absolute confidence of victory, because we de? serve to win. We are confident be? cause we have fought for progress be? fore and we have met and conquered reaction before. The stronghold be? fore us is not new to us. Nor is theie anythSng new in the antagonist before, us (Senator Harding, the Re? publican candidate), magnificent gentle? man that he is, our friend and neigh? bor. In 1912 he fought for the cause of reaction. We won because we stood for progress. And we shall win again." All Cards on Table "I will carry the cause to the people," said Governor Cox, in conclusion. "We are not ashamed of the doctrines we proclaim. I assure them that as God gives me strength I will justify the con? fidence that has been reposed in me."

New Note Threatens to Stop Trade Negotiations Unless Poles Get an ! Immediate Armistice Cabinet in Long Session Denial Made That Soviet Message Flouted Allies for Their Ultimatum LONDON, July 20.?The British gov? ernment's reply to the note of Georg Tchitcherin, Russian Soviet Foreign Minister, regarding an armistice with Poland, will be dispatched to-night. It intimates that if the Russians ad? vance further into Poland all negotia? tions for trade between Great Britain and Russia wili be broken olf. From The Tribune's European Bureau Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc. LONDON, July 20.?The Cabinet held a long session to-day to consider the Russian reply to the note suggesting an armistice with Poland. The Down? ing Street government is much annoyed , by the interpretation placed on the Soviet's reply by the Northcliffe press i and has declared unofficially it was in? accurate to say that the Bolsheviki had flouted the British. As reported previously in these dis? patches, the Foreign Office considers that the reply amounts to an accept? ance of the principles outlined by Pre? mier Lloyd George. It was the intention to publish the reply to-day, but late this afternoon at.other Cabinet meeting was called and Andrew Bonar Law's contemplated statement to the House of Commons was abandoned. Cecil Harmsworth, representing the Foreign Office, an? nounced in Commons that negotiations with the Bolsheviki were continuing anii that the Foreign Office had decided to await their conclusion before pub? lishing the Soviet's note. It is declared authoritatively that the Bolsheviki are insistent that the j Poles make direct overtures and then \ they would be willing to consider the ? general question of peace. The reply ! does not reject the proposition for an i armistice, neither does it accept, and ? the Bolsheviki are at pains to show ; their desire to deal with the British. It appears certain that the British I will urge the Poles to agree to a cc:* j sation of hostilities. Also it can be j said that the British policy toward re? opening trade relations with Russiu remains unchanged. Special Cable to The Tribune (Copyright, lit?O. New York Tribune Inc.) PARIS, July 20.?Amid violent pro?. tests from the Left, Premier Mille ! rand to-day told the Chamber of the \ situation which ans arisen as a result ! of the "impertinent" Bolshevik refusal to heed the British demand for an : armistice. "The Allies have agreed to support I Poland in every way and with all their j power," he said. "France will keep her ! word, just as Great Britain will keep ? hers." The Premier said that before enter I ing into negotiations with the Soviet i Fiance would Tequire recognition of the foreign obligations of former Rus? sian governments.

Resolute and the Minute Hand Race for the America's Cup It Wasn't Shamrock, but the Indicator on a $2 Timepiece, That Was Contender at Finish After Challenger Crossed Line By Heywood Broun An old man came up out of the sea yesterday and raced with the yachts. His name is Time, and the old gaffer is a dangerous adversary, because nothing ever happens to his throat halyards. We might go on and make some picture of him in which the long gray beard would figure as a balloon jib, but as a matter of isct we didn't see any old man. In? stead, we watched the minute hand of our watch. That was the tiny piece of tin which stood between Resolute and the .silver cup. In all the years which we have, spent* at sea nothing has thrilled us quite so much as the race between Resolute and our minute hand. With Shamrock across the line, the American defender had still seven minutes and twenty nine seconds of srace for victory. The breeze came fresher. The big boat heeled in the new wind and came spinning out of the haze, with the waves jumping this way and that to give her room. But the spirit of competition was not. lacking in our watch. There was no fury in the effort, but still the minute hand seemed to know what was expected of it. Perhaps it didn't heel ! over, and certainly it tossed no flying spume, but it kept moving. We would ! like to say that our watch sprinted, ! but we are not sure of that, although we have suspected it at times of paus? ing for a few minutes and then going | extra fast for a round or two to catch Yesterday's triumph was rather one ' of persistence. Looking up we would see Resolute with all its brave show of ! white canvas and whiter water. It was ; so big and fine a thing that the con ? test between yacht and watch seemed unfair. We little knew our watch. It was not to be daunted by odds. No | whistles and no salutes were waiting, i but it realized what was expected of 1 it. Duty was a steady and an inspiring ! wind. It plugged al?n??. Closer came Resolute, but the watch was not unnerved by the hu^e Btraining , mass of canvas. It never missed a beat. Five, six, seven minutes it tolled, j and then hand over hand it climbed ! up to the eighth minute. Resolute was : beaten. Shamrock had won. AH the whistles and sirens in the world were cheering, and so we failed to hear the i slight crunch in the works. In fact, i we were so intent upon the celebra? tion that it was not until some time ; later that we discovered what had hap : p.ened. At the very instant Resolute's. last minute of time was up our watch stopped. We wound It and we shook , it without result. It will never go ? again, we think, but there was a smile on its face. With all its pomp and pride the mighty Resolute was beaten j yesterday by the minute hand of our i two-dollar watch. It is only fair to say that, for all the glory of its exit, our watch was not j perfect. It was not a watch by which men ] should be hang'?d, and, as a matter of ? fact, we were always careful never to I offer it for such purposes. It was never the same after ihe day we used it to time eggs and dropped it in the.! pot. During the last years it was es- ' ?entially a soft-boiled watch. It was an approxirnater rather than a time piece. There was some talk yesterday that ? our watch had nothing to do with the : i victory and that the result was decided ! by a shiny gold watch on the judges' boat. To be sure, this watch gave a i decision, but ours was the first to ; speak. That is victory enough for any $2 watch. When the news that Resolute had lost was bawled across the water by the flags we were not thrilled, for it was an old story to us. Still, our curi? osity was constantly aroused by the i signaling. Say it with flags was the motio of ; the day. We never knew such chat- j tcring emblems. Our boat was forced to employ the international code for "Is that so?" no less than seven times during the afternoon But getting back to our watch, there is no reason why wc should belittle it. Time, its stepfather, is not invincible himself. Shamrock had to beat him to make the race official, and in a score of plays and novels and moving pictures we have seen him get the worst of it. Again and again heroines, laden with pardons, have galloped up and cheated him out of executions. The young lady who swung in the belfry had much the better of him, and within a few months nn entire community has successfully organized the theft of one of his hours and accomplished the feat without re- - taliation.

Victory Brings Lipton's Life Ambition Near Sir Thomas, After Race, Says He Believes He's Justified in Hoping the Cup Will Go to England Is Given Great Ovation Surrounded by Friends Aboard Yacht, Baronet PraisesU.S. Sportsmanship "I am now justified in the hope that the ambition of my life will be at? tained." In the dramatic moment when Sham? rock passed over the finish line yester? day Sir Thomas Lipton uttered these words. As ho spoke tears welled up in the aged sportman's eyes. Dr. Ethan Butler, in the uniform of a United States Army major, suddenly ; emerged from the crowd upon the biidge of the steam yacht Victoria. "Ladies and gentlemen," he began, addressing the other guests on the forward deck, "you all know Sir' Thomas Lipton as a dead game sport, but I know him and Mrs. Donnelly nere knows him under the circumstances of war. We know him under circum? stances that probably will never be adequately told. We know how he cared for our sick and wounded boys, and the care he bestowed upon Dr. Don? nelly, who lies beneath the soil of Serbia, a victim of typhus he fought. It was what he did for our American boys and nurses in the war that makes us admire and appreciate him." Lipton Acknowledges Tribute This speech came as an unexpected break in the dramatic situation that followed the first time that a challeng? ing yacht has won two international races. It wrought a profound change uDon the weather-beaten face of the Irish baronet. Coming forward to the rail of the bridge, he said: "What Dr. Butler has just said has gone straight to my heart. That is a very big thing indeed for me. It means just as much to me as would the winning of the America's Cup." In the midst of the tumultuous re? joicing that followed the Shamrock's crossing there came the warning ?ex? hortation from Commodore Aemilius Jarvis on the Victoria's bridge. "Wait a moment," he said. "We have not won yet. This is a handicap tace, and we must see how quickly Resolute crosses the line before we know who wins." This had a dampening effect upon the guests, but only for a moment, be? cause it was plainly evident that Roso iute could not cross the line within her handicap limit. Stiil quietude reigned as the guests stood with watches iri hand counting the minutes as they sped by Then (. ommodon: Jarvis cried nut from the bridge, "Now you can cheer!" and Resolute was stiil some consider? able distance from the lightship. There followed another outburst of cheering. Honor for the Loser Sir Thomas waited until Resolute passed the line and then ordered his captain to sound the foghorn in honor | of the losing yacht. This done, he : came down on deck and began to un i burden to the newspaper men those ?Continue?! es m* S) Burton Wins Over Critics; Yachts Meet Again To-daVj Skipper,CondemnedAfter Previous Race, His Sails Tangled at Start,'Comes Back' in Light Breeze One More Victory Will Get the Cup Languid Contest for Two Legs Is Stimulated on Final Stretch, Challeng? er Taking More Canvas By W. O. McGeehan The blunt nose of Shamrock IV pushed past the red and white Am? brose Lightship Relief yesterday in a light breeze 9 minutes and 27 sec? onds by actual time before the trim prow of the defender Resolute came by the mark, winning the second race of the series for the America's Cup. With all time allowances de? ducted, Shamrock won the race by 2 minutes and 26 seconds. Once before, in the early seven? ties, when Livonia was the challen? ger, the British boat won a race in the series, but Sir Thomas Lipton, the most persistent challenger of them all, now has two races to his credit. One more race and the his ? toric cup that was lifted by the ! America in 1851 will go back to | England. The yachts will race again to-day, and the America's Cup may pass from its place in the New York I Yacht Club. Captain William P. Burton, the ama? teur skipper of Shamrock, whose sea? manship was derided by all the expert? after Saturday's race, sailed the British sloop to victory yesterday. His wife sat beside him in the cockpit and shared the triumph of her husband as a mem? ber of the crew. Sir Thomas Lipton, owner of Shamrock, whose heart's de? sire is the winning of the cup, gambled upon the ability of his skipper in spit? of the fact that the experts to a man had challenged his competency, and Lipton's luck won. Or was it Lipton's shrewd judgment of men? Challenger Gets Poor Start Immediately after the start Sham? rock seemed to be in trouble. A bal? loon jib, raised as the sloop went by the starting mark, refused to break and the canvas of the challenger was tan? gled up like a twisted and knotted clothesline. The balloon jib was dropped and a thin spinnaker was shot up. This dragged and flapped about in a futile fashion. Shamrock had crossed the line firtt, but, while the crew was juggling the confused canvas Resolute came up and passed her. The experts again began to chuckle over the plight of Captain Burton. They declared that the race was over, that there could be no fair test of the sloops under the circum? stances. But when the two twisted pieces of canvas had been dropped to the deck of Shamrock a new sail was hoisted that puzzled the experts. It filled and it held and Shamrock began to pick up immediately. It was agreed that thin quaint, triangular piece of canvas was a fiddler's jib. It was the first time a sail of this sort ever had been tried in a cup race. But this canvas, -the very name of which sounded ridiculous, carried Shamrock steadily along in the lightest of breezes. Drama in Shamrock's Cockpit The race was lacking in any dramatic elements externally. It looked like no [ race from the start, for the wind was ' almost as light as it was Saturday. : All of the drama was in the cockpit of Shamrock, where Cantata Burton stood , at the wheel of the challenger, white | his wife sat with a stop watch in her ! hand. Burton had given his word to | Sir Thomas that he would bring Sham? rock through to victory, and h:s reputa? tion was at the mercy of the same fret? ful sort of winds that had tricked him Saturday. On the second leg, with a lead that seemed to mean the race if it could be ! held, Shamrock was in trouble again. ; They shot out that balloon jib again ! and it ripped near the coiner, tearing a gaping triangular hole. With a fresh . ening breeze the canvas might have ; ripped thro_gh entirely. But Captain Burton gambled on the ? strength of the canvas and the chancs ? that the wind would not rise. Glasses : were set on the green sloop and they i watched for that sail to come down. j But it stayed up, and Shamrock con j tinued to gain slowly and steadily, with ! her canvas wallowing and shapeless as the week's wash on a line, while the trim little defender became a faint out? line behind. Languid Race for Two Leg? Through the first and second legs it seemed a languid contest. Starting ; south-southeast from the red and whit? lightship, there was a reach for the first leg but in such a faint brees?
