FARMERS' THREAT

Preparing1 to Make Demands
for Higher Prices, Hnlsey

Benjamin 8. Hnlsey of the Sheffield

looked worried yesterday when asked
If there was likely to be a ehutdown by
up-State dairymen on the milk supply
for New York city, lie. Insisted, how
ever, that he knew little about If except
what lie hud "seen In the papers." Later
he admitted up-State superintendents of

farmer were preparing to take drastic
methods If the dealers didn't Increase
their prices,

of prices Is posted In October anyhjw.
"The farmers say that yw price, of
everything they use has gone up. Well.

Peed for our horses, harness, every
thing costs more and m)re all the time.
It Is all a part of the rice In tho cost of
living, and I don t know where It will
end. But If we are compelled to pay
,ore ,han our average of three and
three-quarters cents a quart for milk
the consumer will have to pay, more.
It cin't be helped."
Mr. Halsey said there was small hope
of other cities bi log able to ship much
mill; to New York In the event of a
strike of dairymen, though he hoped I
the supply would be greater In October
than now, as there is a shortage at
present.
We re shipping milk to uoston now,
te said. "There Is little chance that
they could spare us any. During the
producers' strike In Chicago we sent
irllk there. They might ship us some.
We would always try to see that the
hospitals didn't suffer, and we give
customers with babies the preference."

Opening, Indefinitely Delayed

. . .tor October 1.
DEATHS' AT HIGH RECORD
Day's Total Is 57, With 183
New Cases Warning
Against Catskills.
The public .schools will not be opened
September II, as scheduled, because ot
tho Infantile , paralysis epidemic. The
date for ending the summer vacation
has not been set, but It probably will not
be before October 1.
The action 'concerning the schools was
taken at a meeting of tho medical art.
lory board of 'the Health Department,
at which were present William a. Will
cox, .president 'of the Board of Educa
tion, -and a number of physicians who
have been fighting the epidemic. It was
the unanimous opinion of all present
that It -would be Inadvisable to bring
children together In the schools while
the' disease Is i' prevalent as It Is now.
Yesterday brought the greatest num
ber of deaths from Infantile paralysis
In 'the present epidemic, fifty-seven, and
this (f act 'doubtless strengthened the ed
ucators and physicians in their stand.
Will Await an Abatemcal.
.The exact dale of the opening ot
the' schools' Is to be determined after
further conferences of Commissioner
Kmerson with, the Mayor's Committee
on Infantile Paralysis. The date will
be fixed at a time when the epidemic
Is abated and the danger to the school
children Is at a minimum. President
Willcox also asked that It be left In
definite, In order to give him the op
portunity to get In touch with his su
perintendents and settle the executive
problems connected with the postpone
ment. Mr. Willcox after leaving the
conference presided over a meeting of
the Board of Education, where a reso
lution was adopted empowering him to
fix a date for the opening based on the
recommendation tof the Department of
Health, whlph leaves the matter In the
hands ot the department.
.Faroefclal SeHoola Also.
The Rev. Josefrh Hnilrh. who is super
intendent of 'parochial schools In Man

last night that the Institutions under
Catholic patronage would follow what
ever action Is taken by the public
schools. "
"I have not talked with the Health
Commissioner," said Father Hmlth, "be
cause I havw been out af toTvti. To-mor
row morning I will get In touch with 1
him. Whatever regulations he sots for

gladly by us."
None of the heads of Manhattans

Teachers employed In these schools said
that If the school opening Is deferred
by order of the Health Commissioner In
struction probably will be given In camps
or In temporary schools out of town.

asked the Federal officials to warn ap
plicants for health certificates against
going to this section of the Catskills
and to refuse to Issue certificates to
those who go by way of New Jersey

a means of controlling the spread of
Infantile paralyals and particularly
among the refugees from tho city.
Many .ew Cases In The llruox.
The 'death roll of flfty-eeven reiwrtcd
to the Hoard of Health yesterd.iv ex
ceeds the previous high record of August
t by two. There were nrty-two deaths
from tne disease on the day previous.
There were reported to the department
183 new, cases, which was tho same
number given In the report of the dy
before. .The total number of cases In
the five boroughs Is now 6,852. Tho In

In hospitals.
There wHs a marked Increase In the
number of new cssca In The llronx noted
In the report, while new cases In .Man
hattan were on tho decrease, and In
Urooklyn stutlonary. The disease in
Richmond seems to have run Its course,
as there was only one new case und no
death reported yesterday. Total deaths
to date have been 1,351,
Commissioner Emerson's comment on
the day's repl of the epidemic was '"Not
encouraging."
Another difficulty encountered In the
rXht against the epidemic Is that many

many of'whom do not speak English and
have no comprehension of the effort
that are being made to protect and save
their children. There Is a belief among

MEDIATION STARTS
IN RAILWAY DISPUTE
Chances of Averting Strike
Brighten as Federal Hoard
Takes Up Task.
UNIONS FOR QUICK WORK
Government Agents Called In
at Request of Roads' Con
ference Committee.
Chances that the big railroad strike
will be averted looked better yester
day than at any time, when mediation
got under way. The four rullwny
men's unions accepted the offer of tho
Federal Board of Mediation and Cn
dilation nfter the committee o! the
roads had asked the board to mediate.
Late In the afternoon the three
members of the board. Chairman Mar
tin A. Knapp, Judge W. L. Chambers
and O. W. W. Hanger, met the nine
teen railroad managers who compose
the National Conference Committee
of the railroads at the Manhattan
Hotel to hear their side of the eight
hour day question. The mediators
would make no statement as to whut
was done.
I'robably this morning the mediators
will hear the side of the four biother
hoods presented by A. II. Uarretson, W,
S. Stone, W. (J. l.co and W. S. Carter,
brad." of the conductors', engineers',
trainmen's and firemen's union.
To llrow t p Agreement.
Without telling either side what tne
'other ha stated as Its 'Million, the me
diators will then try themselves to draw
an agreement, which both "111 s&n. Sev-
eral talks with each side may l,e neces-,
sary, and perhaps a meeting uf both
sides with the mediators.
If that falls
they will try to persuade both iddwt to
consent to arbitration by a i-otnmlmlon
of elx, under the Now lands act. The
unions do not favor arbitration. If the
refuse It the situation wilt le the same
as It was yesterday before mediation be
gan, and the only hope of ircvcnttiig
the strike will be a backdown by either
side or 'Intervention by I'resldeni Wil
son, lie ban no lejal power, und can
only exert pressure.
The beginning of mediation wn
brought about at a meeting yesterday
morning of the railroad committee and
the union leadora at the Engineering So
cieties Building. Ellsha Lee. chairman
of the railroad committee, told the union
leader that after talking over thflr de
mand and the announced vote of 94 per
cent, of the 100.000 members to strike If
they were not granted, midlatlon was the
only way out. The demand would mean
too many chansps In railroad operation
he Fad t0 1)c ffttrl ,y ro:,Us and men
without the assistance of the Federal
i,,inrrf
I.ee Heads Statement,
Mr. Lee then read a statement saying
the railroad' committee wlnhed to do
what It could to avert a strike. Tin
men's demands, however, "involve such

us a little more than half way. Df course

and then If the mediators tonus to us we

This was'Just what was d me. Mr.

Mr. Onrretsnn'a view of the mediation
was that it munt be quick. He expects
that within five days the result will be
known. He thinks. In fact, that all usual
expedients will be. exhausted In thre.)
days. Mr. Uarretson would say nothing
for quotation about the possibility of the
unions accepting arbitration If the me
diators recommended It. but he does not
think much of the success of recent ar
bitration from the men's viewpoint.
Will Keep Mllrnee.
Until the railroad commlllea and the

TTALIAN official reports yesterday announced that the Austrlans
had been ejected from nil their positions on the west bank of the
Isonzo P.lvcr. The most important of these positions were Monto
Snbotino anil the villaRo of Podfrora, which is on a high ridg-e and
linked to Monte Sabotino by an elaborate system of trenches. The
Italians took also Monte Sun Michcle, on the cast bank of the stream,
south of Goritz.
To the south and reaching toward the cast, between the Isonzo
and Trieste, is the high Citrso Plateau, which offers good defensive
positions to the Austrlans. The work of clearing- it is under way, and
now that an easy crossing of the river has been made possible for
Italian troops they also can advance from Monfalcone on the road to
Trieste, twenty-two miles away.

narrow sector, but a methodical and
comprehensive action from I 'lava,

of twenty miles ulong tho Isonzo

at daybreak Sunday, the Italian fleet
