Bank Law Repeal Asked
Senator Lockwood and other mem
bars of the committee believe that
legislation passed in " 1916 permitting
savings banks to lend on bankers' ac?
ceptances and bills of exchange should
be repealed.
Investigation at the office of the
State Banking Department yesterday
revealed that the deposita in the sav?
ings banks of the state on July 1 of
this year were in excess of $2,398,000,
000. Of this amount more than $1,227,
OOv.COO, or 61.1 per ctnt of the total
amount on deposit, was loaned on bond
and mortgage. On that same date the
loans on bankers'acceptances were $30,

The service generally yesterday was
better than at any previous time dur?

seven surface lines of the company are
being operated and other additions, it
was said, would be made within a few
days. >>
-Air. Garrison and Federal Judgo Ju?
lius M. Mayer remained firm yesterday
iii their stand that no negotiations with
officers of the Amalgamated Associa?
tion are to be conducted.
Mr. Garrison made it clear that those
men who have returned to work since
Wednesday noon had done so without
i-oniority privileges and insisted that
those who come back in the future will
do likewise. All, however, receive the 8
per cent increase given by the court,
which has now become the basic scale.
In spite of the expressed determina?
tion of the receiver those in close
touch with tho situation conjectured
that if the men on strike accept the
terms laid down by tho court an ar?
rangement may bo made whereby they
may resume their former status.
Six Thousand^Still on Strike
Company officials estimate that not
more than six thousand men are still
on strike. Originally only eight thou?
sand went out, they say. Amalgamated
and union officials, however, iniist that
inpre are still out.
Kline, whose death yesterday was the
third to result from the strike, was
stabbed by strikers who attacked him
and left him for dead at Broudway and
Stewart Street. He was found by pas
sersby and carried to the hospital,
where he died.
The body of Osterhout was found by
a fisherman, who. notified Patrolmat
Walter Shea yesterday morn<ng. Li
bore no marks of violence, but tho
police are not satisfied that the mat. :
was not killed by strikers. An investi?
gation is being conducted by detectives
under Sergeant^John Ryan.
Three thousand strikers attended a
meeting last night at Palm Garden,
Wilson and Gr??enc avenues, Brooklyn.
Little ?nthnsia?'rrt was shown. Louis
Fridiger praised the strikers for their
courage and loyalty. Frayne also
spoke. He urged the strikers to refrain
from violence.
Women B:R. T. Employees
Launch Attack on Union
Amalgamated Accused of Com?
ing to Brooklyn With Record
of Sex War in Other Cities
Members of the Women's B. R. T.
Equal Opportunity League, an or.ir.ani
zatirtr. of women employees, yesterday
launched an attack on the Amal?
gamated. They charged that the as?
sociation came to Brooklyn with a rec?
ord of "sex war" behind it.
The attack, which is signed by Mary
A. Murray, president, and Amy Wren,
counsel for the association, says, in
"The issue in the present strike on
the B. R. T., so far as the women are
concerned, is, shall a decent, self-re?
specting woman, forced to earn a live?
lihood, be permitted to work at a
healthful, profitable occupation?
"The Amalgamated Association of
Street and Electric Railway Employees
of America, which ?3 directing the j
present strike, says: No; not it it is
railroading. i
"The said Amalgamated Association |
came to Brooklyn a year ago to or- |
ganize the B. R. T., with a record of a
sex war behind it. In Cleveland, I)e
troit .and Kansas City this union
forced tho railroads to discharge their ?
Members of the organization, most !
of whom are employed as ticket sell?
ers,' did not participate in the strike. !
A few women, however, whose affilia- I
tions are with the Amalgamated, did
go out, company officials say.

Building Trades Council
Accused of Discriminat?
ing Against the Union;
1,800 Are Out of Work
Van Men on Picket Duty
Plumbers Say Conferences
Just Begun Will Give
Strikers Their Demands
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, and
Hugh Frayne, general organizer, Were
requested yesterday by representatives
of the House Wreckers' Union of New
York to compel the Building Trades
Council to cease its alleged discrimina?
tion against their organization.
Petitions wore presented 'to the
labor leaders by President A. d'Ales
sandro. of the International Hod Car?
riers' Union, with which the House
Wreckers' Union is affiliated, at in?
formal conferences in tho Hotel Con?
tinental and at the .offices of the fed?
eration. Mr. (iompers also was urged
to bring the controversy to the atten?
tion of the Central Federated Union at
its weekly meeting to-night.
It was announced yesterday by labor'
leaders that 1,800 wreckers have been
locked out by their employers for the
last ten weeks on jobs under control
of the Building Trades Council. The
wreckers' representatives say that was
done at the instance of tho council after
diff?rences had developed between of?
ficials of the two organizations, which
are both affiliated with tho American
Federation of Labor.
Says Men Are Locke- Out
According to Pincus Hockstein, sec?
retary of tho wreckers' union, the
men were locked out chiefly through
the efforts of Robert P. Brindell, di?
rector of the Building Trades Council.
He said that yesterday sixty-two men
were locked out by Jacob Volk, an em?
ployer, with headquarters in Seventy
third Street, between Broadway and
Columbus Avenue.
He also made public a letter from the
Gowanus Wrecking Company, Hamilton
Avenue and Sixteenth Street, Brooklyn,
. to Mr. Frayne. In it the request was
. u: , c. m ?): "?? I??-: allowed to
deal with the House Wreckers' Union,
because the men supplied bv the Build?
ing Trades Council, through Robert P.
Brindell, were "green" and were "dish?
washers, waiters <:nd bolt washers, and
anything but house wreckers."

Refuse to Deal With Workers
Although Mr. McKenna said he was
conferring with independent owners,
the Van Owners' Association of Great?
er New York issued a denial. It de
clared its 200 members at a meeting
Wednesday ni^ht had decided to stand
pat on their policy of having no deal?
ings with the union.
The owners' statement recounts the
incident' which led up to the ;nrike.
It snys that in August the employers
met with the union's representatives
and reached "a definite agreement asi
to wages and conditions for a yearl
from /'igust 15, 1020." The conditions!
were that there would be no shortening
of hours, but an increase o? $3 would ?
b?1 granted. The men demanded an I
eight-hour day and a weekly increase
of $.". According to the employers the
union's representatives did not sub?
mit the agreement to the van drivers.
Instead they are said to have none to
a convention of their orcanization at
Binghamton, N. Y., and obtained sanc?
tion to declare a strike. That they did
on August 31.
"This proves conclusively," the em?
ployers' statement concludes, "that the
union never intended to keep faith
with the Van Ownors' Association."
Plumbers Hold ConfCTenceB
Three important conferences were
begun last night between representa?
tives of the striking plumbers, steam
fitters and helpers and officials of the
Alteration and Jobbing Plumbers' As?
sociation of Greater New York. These
sessions, according to Walter J. Kelly,
secretary of the Amalgamated Metal
Workers of America, have as their ob?
ject the clearing up of final details
..hereby independent, master plumbers
of the city, as well as a number of
employers who have broken away from
the Master Plumbers' Association,
agree to meet all the strikers' de?
Mr. Kelly said the result would not
be announced until to-day should a
settlement be reached. He declared
also that approximately 1,800 of the
2,000 men who have been on strike are
now back at work as a result of set?
tlements with individual master
plumbers in which the latter obtained
all their demands. These consisted of
an eight-hour day, a forty-four-hour
week and a $9 a day wage.
Secret Art Treaty Charged
VIENNA, Sept. 9.?The Vienna Mu?
seum Association is demanding publica?
tion of a secret treaty alleged to have
| been made with Italy by Dr. Karl Ren
I ner, the Foreign Minister, for the de?
livery of a great number of art and
historic treasures and manuscripts not
I included in the St. Germain treaty.
! Among the treasures is said to be the
famous Cross of St. Theodore from the
1 collection of bronzes of the Duke of
j Este.
i According to reports, Italy in return
agreed to support Austria against the
' secession of Austrian states, and on
j various questions before tho Allied com
! missions. It is understood here that
: the Reparations Commission also is in?
quiring into the existence of the alleged
! treaty, owing to the possibility of the
! agreement involving Austrian assets af
fectcd by provisions of the St. Germain
i treaty.
.William Howard Taft
Cox's Slush Fund Charge
By William Howard Taft
; PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 9.?Governor
Cox has begun the real campaign. The
academic League of Nations issue was
good enough to attract a considerable
body of high minded persons who sin?
cerely cherish the league as a great
advance and who hope that in some
way or other the block of holdover Re?
publican Senators can be removed. But
Governor Cox realizes that the votes
of such persons cannot control the
election. He must make available for
the Democracy the industrial unrest
of the country. He must stir class
feeling. He must mass the labor vote
behind him. He must cause ? radical
uprising against capital and business.
Ho must fasten on th? Republican
party and candidatees a plan to give
the government over to selfish capi?
talistic interests to be used to oppress
That is the real issue Governor Cox
proposes to push into this campaign.
The Wilsonian issue?"The league with
Article X or no league"? may be good
enough to catch a number of "high?
brows," but the masses are to bo moved
by sterner stuff. He ' has secured a
lot of circulars and publications pur?
porting to be issued by a bureau of
the Republican National Committee
charged with the collection of funds,
and he produces a paper which on it3
face is a statement of how much is
expected from tho large cities, which
makes a total of over $8,000,000. As
this does not cover the rural districts,
he assumed that nearly double eight
millions is to be raised. Ho introduces
bulletins, issued by the bureau to
subordinates, encouraging them by re?
ports of quotas raised to renewed vigor
in making collections.
No one can be mistaken as to what
theso documents evidence. The silly
words used in them are the lingo of
tho professional publicity man of the
war drives. They revive the memory
of those days when no language of
appeal could be too extreme or fan?
tastic, so that now the success which
for other reasons attended those drives
has fastened on the present suffering
generation the infliction of having the
same outrageous methods of publicity
adopted in every public movement in
which money is sought from any con?
siderable body of people.
Do these papera establish that $15,
000,000 or $8,000,000 will be collected
or that the Republican committee ex?
pects to collect such sums? Of course
not. The use of a so-called quota is
as a stimulant only, not an assurance.
Mr. Hays and Mr. Upham, Republican
chairman and treasurer, say there was
no such quota to their knowledge.
That might well be, for quotas like
this were part of the property of the
histrionic machinery of those profes?
sions! "Whooper-Uppers" to whom the
work of collection was assigned. Mr.
Hays and Mr. Upham say under oath
that tho general plan was to make
collections not exceeding $1,000 from
each subscriber; that in only thirty
eight cities out of 12.000 had that plan
bot?n departed from, and that of the
thirty-eight only one subscription ex?
ceeded $5,000.
In other words, they do not intend
to rely on large subscriptions from a
comparatively few men to carry the
campaign. They wish to avoid placing
the party or its candidates under heavy
financial obligation to any men at the
head of great corporate enterprises
having axes to grind in the next four
years. The plan of campaign, experi?
menting and silly as its methods and
language were, shows conclusively
that the purpose of the committee to
solicit small subscriptions from many
was being carried out, and excludes
altogether the inference that there
was reliance upon the contributions of
rich men with great interests.
There is no showing as to how much
of the total of quotas can be realized.
Mr. Hays and Mr. Upham produce a
budget of probable expenses of some?
thing more than three millions. Some?
thing over a million has already been
Bpent, and as much more will be need?
ed for state organizations.
If the Republican committee ean se?
cure the money, we may assume that it
will spend more* than this budget. The
campaign of 1916 cost $2,500,000 or
$3,000,000 on each side. The increase
in the cost of everything since then
and the enormous growth of the elec?
torate through woman suffrage and the
more t'->or->u?rh orwanisp.tion att>'mpted
will justify a doubling of amounts used
in previous campaigns without the im?
proper use of a dollar.
These are the facts disclosed. Upon
them Governor Cox makes the charges
that the great moneyed interests of
this country propose to buy the elec?
tion and an underhold on the govern?
ment, and that, having bought the
Presidency and presented it to Mr.
Harding, they will use him to send
bpyonets to settle industrial difficul?
Governor Cox has not yet adduced
any evidence to Bhow, first, that im?
proper use of campaign funds is con?
templated; second, that men represent?
ing large financial interests have con?
tributed more than $1,000 each; third,
that there is any purpose to use mili?
tary forces to oppress labor. He has
turned up a mare's nest in professional
publicity methods, and that is all. But
he has secured in the lingo used in
them phrases and terms which he can
use in every speech to supply his woe?
ful lack ,of evidence to Bustain his se?
rious charges.
This is only the beginning of his
campaign in seeking to rouse bitter
! ness in the ranks of wage earners
against capital. We shall have attacks
against Mr. Harding and Mr. Coolidge
for their stand for law and order.
The reference by Mr. Cox to bayonet3
in industrial disputes is itself an in?
sidious attack on tho maintenance of
law and order. It is an invitation to
labor men to believe that with a Demo?
cratic administration needed power
will not be exercised to preserve peace
and order against organized violence.
Governor Cox has manufactured the
issue o.ut of whole cloth. He has
lugged it in by the hair of tho head.
With no facts to sustain its discussion
as an issue, with no evidence to brand
business intere7-?ts with criminal pur?
pose to buy elections and terrorize
labor through a bought government, he
rushes through labor centers from the
East to the West and summons spirits
of unrest and lawlessness to aid him in
his chase for office. It will, it must,
recoil on him, as he deserves. Men
who have praised his declaration as to
the League of Nations and his high
ideals will come to realize the des?
perate opportunism and the reckless
demagogery with which the Democratic
campaign is being carried on. They
will feel uncomfortable under such
leadership. Not in this way can the
burden of Mr. Wilson's regime be
avoided. Not in this way can the
idealist support of the academic issue
of the league be incongruously united
to elements of unrest which threaten
socially, or. with labor men who would
rely on violence for the advance of
their cause.

Special Dispatch to The Tribune
HARTFORD, Conn., Sept, 9.?From
10 a. m. until 4 o'clock this afternoon
586 delegates to the Republican State
Convention fought over the selection
of the state ticket to run with United
States Senator Frank B. Brandegee, and
then, in a dramatic climax, Everett J.
Lake, of Hartford, formerly Lieuten?
ant Governor and a famous hp.lfback
for Harvard, won tho nomination for
Senator Brandegee was renominated
by acclamation earlier in the day. He
had no opposition for the nomination.
The state machine was badly trimmed
to-day and J. Henry Roraback, boss of
Connecticut for eight years, was nerv?
ous and twitchy as he sat on the plat?
form behind the permanent chairman,
watching the delegates over whom he
had once exercised complete contal
break away and follow their own in?
nations. It was apparent that the or?
ganization under .T. Henry Roraback
and Buckley, of the Governor's office,
had seriously overplayed the old game,
notably on the blockade of the Federal
suffrage amendment.
Following the unexpected nomina?
tion of Lake there "had to be a hasty
rearrangement of plans for th?; rest of
tho ticket, with this result: For Lieu?
tenant Governor, Charles A. Temple
ton, of Waterbury; Treasurer, G. Har?
old Gilpatrick, of Putnam (renomi?

Warner, of Salisbury; Comptroller,
Harvey P. Bissell, of Ridgetield.
National Platform Indorsed
The platform adopted subscribes to
the national Republican doctrines, eu?
logizes Harding and Cool'id^e, but
omits any mention of the present Gov?
ernor Marcus H. Holcomb or the lead?
ing political issue of the campaign.
It was 5 o'clock this morning when
a series of conferences between party
leaders was concluded. AH effort:;
of Roraback, Jos?*ph Buck?ey, secretary
to Governor Holcomb, and others to
force the withdrawal from the Gov?
ernorship contest of Speaker James F.
Walsh, of Greenwich, were in vain,
chiefly because Attorney General Frank
E. llealey, elected two years ago for
a four-year term, insisted that his
own and other leaders' pledges be made
Shortly before the convention as?
sembled this afternoon it was learned
that Walsh himself realized the futility
of encountering tho story of woman suf?
frage opposition being aimed at him
and had passe?! tho word to his big
block of delegates to vote for Healey.
The Attorney General got 213 votes on
the first roil call, whereas Walsh got
but one, with Lieutenant Governor Clif?
ford B. Wilson of Bridgeport scoring
102, Colonel William H. Hall, .100, and
others scattering. During the second
roll call delegates who believed that
Healey had little more chance of olcc
1 tion in November than had Walsh, and
for about the same causes, organized
under Robert Scoville, of ?Salisbury,
who broached to Lake the proposition
that he permit his name to be entered,
and that a coalition of the Wilson and
Hall forces be maneuvered. Ten years
ago in the same hall Lake lost the
nominaion for Governor over night and
later his winning competitor lost tho
Lake agreed to stand if the Wilson
and Hall supporters desired, and pan?

gates when Colonel Hall aroso to re?

stage, where he was perceptibly em?
barrassed, but in a brief speech of
thanks, referring to ten . years ago,
when he .was prepared.to make the ac?

Copyright, 1920. New York Tribun? Inc.
BERLIN, Sept. 9.?Telegrams from
Munich reaching here to-day say that
the overflowing of South German riv

owing to recent heavy rains, is having
serious consequences. Scores of vil?
lages are under water, bridges have
been swept away and the entire coun?
tryside is flooded.
The damage done within the last
forty-eight hours will extend to many
million marks. The River Isar, which
; runs through Munich, is rising danger?
ously outside of the city, and the local
burgomaster has issued a proclama
! tion that if the river continues to rise
?vacuation of the outer suburbs by the
inhabitants may be necessary.
Thousands of country people, whose
