Exclusion of Political Ap
pointees From Arbitration
Rortics Is Suggested.
That nn unprecedented nmount of
thought In preparation for tho Repub
lican National Convention 1ms been
given to tho problems of Industry anil
Kiclal justice Is indicated by two reports
of the Nntlonul Commlttco's advisory
ciimmlttfo on policies and platform
made public yesterday.
In searching for a plnn for tho settle
nicnt of industrial disputes tho commit
tee has considered tho Industrial Itola
Vons Court established In Kansas
fl through tho effort of Oov. Henry J.
Allen, also tho plan of voluntary media
tion, conciliation and arbitration, nnd,
finally, the method of applying cconomlo
pressure. This Is tho commlttco's con
clusion. "Tho results of tho answers to our
questionnaires Indicate a widespread be
lief among employers and tho general
public, with some measure of acquies
cence from a fow ropreacntatlves of
labor, that eood will inside the plant Is
a more valuable cconomlo factor to all
concerned than the kind or quality of
materials, inanimate machinery or any
other factor of business organization
and management.
"That this cannot be developed di
rectly by legl.ilatlon, hut that a sympa
tnetlo atutudo on tho part of govern
ment will so far to making conditions
favorable for its development, and that
no agency can contribute more than tho

nnd similar devices for bringing together
tne representatives of employers and
tmployee3 as frequently as possible and
developing mutual responsibility for and
consideration of tho numerous and com
plex details that enter into and consti
tute a fundamental human relationship.
,o Simple Solution.
"A review, analysis and study of the
numerous official and unofficial In
quiries concerning the Industrial situa
tion In tho United States In recent years
furnishes no conclusive and simple solu
tion to the problem of Industrial unrest.
A consideration of the numerous reports
of the experience of other countries,
where a similar industrial situation ex
ists, yields tho same results. The spe
cial Inquiry made by our advisory com
mittee and the results of the question
naires, which express the opinions of
thousands of representative Americans,
do not point the way to any certain road
to Industrial security and peace.
"The answers to our questionnaire in
dicate the following opinions:
"(1) That in tho Government service,
strikes can legitimately be forbidden
provided that the rights and interests
of the emplojees are protected by means
of Impartial tribunals.
"(2) In so far as public utilities are
concerned, there appears to be a division
of opinion as to whether strikes should
be made Illegal, and the decisions of
commissions or tribunals be made legal
ly binding, or whether provision should

are concerned, .whllo many hold that
thnro Is no need for Government action,

opinion favor tho creation of some form
of tribunal or commission composed of
representatives of employers, employees
and tho public, to whom disputes may

services. This last provision Is a recog
nition, of course, of the puhllo Interests
affected by violent Industrial disturb
ances, oven In private employments.
To liar Out Political Inflnence.
"In so fur as tho membership of these
tribunals, commissions or boards Is
concerned, It is essential that tho repre
sentatives of employers and employees
should bo freely chosen by tho parties
themselves through soma form of so-
crct ballot, rather than that they be
uppnlntcd by public officials and so be
subject to the vicissitudes of political
Influence. A national board to supervise
and curry out such a plan and servo us
a court of last ,rcsort would appear to
uo an exception to such a ruio."
in Its application to Government em
ployment the general principal of the
Kansas Industrial Court Is favored by a
large majority of thoso answering the
committee's: questionnaire. A majority,
hut not a largo one, .favors the applica
tion of this principle to public utilities.
llut when It comes to prlvnto employ
ment tho majority Is adverse. On this
point tho committee notes:
ino refines opposed to tne application
of the prlnciplo of the Kansas Industrial
Relations Court to private employments
come for tho most part from persons
resident outside tho State of Kansas, and
therefore probably without full knowl
edge or cxpcrlenco concerning the exac'
scope or operation of this law. lluslness
and commercial organizations very gen
erally throughout the Stato of Kansas
havo adopted resolutions Indorsing tho
Industrial Relations Court."
The commlttco says that all types of
nomcompulsory legislative remedies for
strikes and lockouts are found In Ameri
can States. About twenty States have
provision for boards of inquiry for com
pulsory Investigation and publication of
findings, but they have rarely been
utilized. This failure, the committee
says, Is duo In part "to tho neglect to
provide adequate machinery, but more
largely to tho extension of this principle
to too many Industries not much affected
with tho public Interest or having much
relation to public comfort."
Machinery for Settlements,
Regarding the settlement of disputes
by economic pressure, with a minimum
of Governmental supervision and with
out compulsion except as a matter of
voluntary contract, the committee finds
that a good deal of machinery for this
has been developed and that a very large
number of employers feel that this can
bo strengthened and made more effective
without Governmental Interference. And
the representatives of the American
Federation of Labor, answering the
questionnaire, said :
"Where the machinery offered by the
trade union movement Is accented and
applied with Intelligence, good will and
earnestnes". every desirable object Is
achieved and every fair demand Is
met. . . . The practical application of

What docs it mean? Just ttys:
Wc have reduced the price of every fancy
suit in our regular Burlington Arcade stock.
By "fancy suits" we mean cverything'that
is not a plain shade.
This takes in all our finer suits; and it means
that no matter what kind of suit you choose
you will get a good, substantial fabric and the
right kind of tailoring. The Wanamaker
standard guarantees both features.
Understand, please
that a sale of regular Wanamaker stock is
much different from an ordinary sale of odd
lots. There is no skimping in variety no lack
of sizes no questionable patterns and color
ings. Every suit was chosen by us originally
for regular Wanamaker patrons men who
come here season after season because they
know and want Wanamaker clothes. The
BEST we have goes into this sale.
It is not customary
to reduce prices so early in June; but the
heavy demand for Wanamaker clothing since
the 20 per cent, deduction went into effect has
broken some lines, more or less; so we're taking
the entire remaining stock and reducing it ac
cording to the above prices AND giving
you the additional 20 per cent, saving besides.

Child Labor Lnnlnlutloii,
The roport credits tho Republican
party with leadership In legislation for
tha protection of childhood, cites the
plank In the 1916 platform, "Wo favor
tho enactment and rigid enforcement of
a Federal child labor law," and says
that If tho present child labor tax law
should bo declared unconstitutional
other means should he sought, even if
tho Constitution has to ba amended.
Tho committee favors tho continuance
of tho women's bureau, under u woman
chief, In tho Department of Labor, and
says that tho principle of equal pay for
oqual work could bo more effectively
recognized by tho Federal Government
us tho largest employer In tho country.
It also .speaks encouragingly of a pro
posal already before Congress to pro
vldo flnnnclul aid to tho States through
tho children's bureau for educational
work to reduce Infant mortullty and
provide maternity protection. A Fed
eral employment agency and authorita
tive national study of social Insurance
aro recommended.
Tho report gives considerable space
to tho "amazing" ndvnnco of tho negro
In America nnd says without comment:
"Tho participation of negroes In polit
ical matters In the South does not seom
to havn increased. Some statistics In
dicate that in the Southern States the
Rcpubllcun vote Is small where the
negroes nro In large numbers, nnd large
where they aro In small numbers."

Washington, June 2. Tho tentative
draft of the Republican national plat
form reeived Its finishing touches nt con
ferences) here to-day. Senator Watson of
Indiana, who has been In charge of tho
taBk, will leave for Chicago to-morrow
to confer with prospective members of
tho convention's resolutions committee.
The plank on Mexico was added to
the draft to-day. It was written by
Senator Fall (N. M.), who headed the
Senate's special sub-committee on Mex
ican affairs, and later was revised In
some minor respects nt n conference at
tended by Senator Watson, Senator
Lodge (Mass.), the Republican leader
of the Senate, and a number of other
prominent Republicans. It Is under
stood to follow In general the recom
mendations made by Senator Fall In his
report to tho Senate, declaring that un
less conditions In Mexico are Improved

All mention of prohibition Is omitted
from the tentative draft, and It was un
derstood that those who conferred here
would recommend against any declara
tion on the subject That Issue, It was
suggested, should be regarded as set
