Two hundred employees of the Smyser Machine Works, at 12J John street, Brooklyn, went on strike yesterday with tho workers who are out at the Arbuckle Brothers Company sugar refinery. Tho strike there has been In' progress for two days and it Is claimed by union leaders that 2,100 have quit work. The Hmyser company does all of the elec trical And machine work for tho Ar buckle plant The employees of the lat ter concern have presented no demands but will not return, It Is asserted, until the Arbuckle strike Is settled. Tho atrlkors said the Arbuckle re finery was completely tied up yesterday. They also charged that natives of the Philippines, who aro enlisted men In the navy and at "present on furlough, received, double time as strikebreakers. At tho navy yard it was said that It was entirely possible for the sailors to don civilian garb while on futlough. John Furey, president of Local 1100, of the harbor boatmen and terminal work ers' union, said he Intended to appeal to tho commandant of tho navy yard to take action. Chris SInnott, business ngent of the lccal.'charged yesterday that the police were Interfering with the meetings of tho strikers and that unless they re frained from further action of this sort, he would ask the courts for an Injunc tion against them.

Declaring that labor could not escape responsibility for much of the Increase In living costs since last March, and that curtailment of production Is responsible for much of the present Industrial situation, Sena tor Calder of New York to-day In the Senate called on the present Industrial Conference not to forget that the In terests of capital and labor are subor dinate to the Interests of the general public. The conference cannot be a success. tfco New Tork Senator said. If only tem porary measures of relief are provided and If steps are not taken to go to" the very heart of the trouble. Every act of the conference, he declared, should be based on the public Interest and on industrial stability. Sketching the present situation. Sena tor Calder said: "At the cessation of hostilities prices had risen, according to the llureau of Labor statistics, to 107 per cent, above pre-war levels. On tho early prospects of an abundance of labor and possible overproduction, prices receded by March, 1919, to 98 per cent over the pro-war level. Labor, however, was de termined to' hold the status quo In wages and working commons, or make them even (more favorable. Strikes were of Increasing frequency until we ore having an unprecedented numbtr of them. Ileal Reason for Strikes. MORE REDS SEIZED IN RAIDS AT GARY Stockade Being Built' to Hold Military Prisoners.

'These were and are strikes not only for higher wages but for shorter hours.' producing idleness, lack of effort and reduced output. During the six months succeeding the armistice the production of peace commodities, even with the release of machinery and labor from war production and with the returning soldiers to recruit the force of pro ducers, has been estimated by some authorities as but half the production of peace commodities during the six months preceding the armlsltce, when our maximum effort was concentrated on war activities. "There are other Influences of course the ;deral Trade Commission asserts one of these Is the abuse of storage facilities and possibilities entering Into the Increasing costs of living, but labor disturbances, resulting In decreased pro duction, have largely been responsible for sending the price level up again, untir to-day It is 128 per cent, above the prices current at the beginning of the war, an Increase of 30 per cent.

Tho effects of currency Inflation and of ex port business had largely spent them selves by March and cannot properly be counted as factors In the Increase In living costs from March to September. The lack of production Is the major cause, and this has resulted In the main because labor has ceased to produce and has brought Ite economic power to bear on the solution of what it holds to .bo a more equitable division of the wealth already extant. 'While we are quarrelling we are consuming, and soon the monkey of con tention will have consumed the cheose. and If at last .we agree on an equitable dlvlBton we will find there Is no cheese to divide. Every one In his senses realizes. that we should bo creating new weaiui rather than concerning ourselves with divisions of wealth already created. Whether such division bo made through barter, speculation or wage adjustments,, still It is dividing and not creating. "Public welfare clamors for Increased production at once; Industrial welfare demands a permanent policy of bargain ing, so that the minimum of uncertainty as to future costs be had." Senator Calder declared It would be better to defer attempts to meet the situation thanito devise temporary reme dies. Temporary llemeUlea Opposed. "Temporary conditions In Industry," he said, "are not the real Issues, Tem- Bpecfal Despatch to Thi Scs. Washington, Oct. 11. Washington Is being beset by fears of a blowup and ut ter .failure of tho National Industrial Conference as a result of lack of prog ress and the apparent opposing Interests of employers and employees. That there la no real basis for this pessimism Is plain even to a superficial observer, much less those who have given close at tention to the conference and' Its devel opments. There Is scarcely a delegate to the conference who Is not honestly optl mlstio as to the outcome and outspoken In his or her beliefs. Tho conference Is beyond doubt facing a serious problem In the steel strike settlement resolution of the labor group. Members of the conference who aro the moving spirit In the effort to bring re sults are a unit In scofllng.the Idea that there Is any such thing as an Impasse or even a situation approaching one. They point out not for quotation that thoso who expected labor and capi tal would bring the same viewpoint to the conference or that they would reach a common viewpoint even before discussion In the conference was under way, to put It mildly, need something by way of Industrial or economic educa tion.' They are inclined to laugh over the apparently serious statements that labor and capital aro far apart and both determined and unwilling to make any concessions. Real Start Not Yet BLdc. Ono of the leaders In the conferencn movement and an active participant pointed out to-day that neither capital nor labor, employers or employees, have had a good opportunity yet to unbend, and that" much has been and will be ac complished In this direction In a short time. Up to the present time employers and employees have each advanced a set of principles. ' As usual there am some uncontested points in each, but for tho major part they represent opposing positions, but lack anything startling, new or radical. Neither the conference nor tho general committee of the con ference has yet reached discussion of these principles and has made no at' tempt to bring together the opposing views stated. In this situation many delegates who were In Washington to-day, while ob Jocttng to an exposition of personal views, agreed that there was scant foun datton for repeated reports that the con ference faced disaster and could only be saved by an appeal to the President. So far as could be learned there has been no definite move made by tho con- fevtr.co for an appal to the President or for any form of. reorganisation. Xhere are thoso who are frankly determined to reform the rules of procedure, if pos etble, to break up continued and binding group action on every subject. It was learned on good authority to day that there Is an apparent preponder ance of opinion among the employers' croup that nothing could be gained through an appeal to the President, at least so far ns the employers are con cerned. They take the position that there Is thorough understanding of the purpose of the conference, and that It could not be further enlightened. This position Is taken with regard to the conference, however, and not the steel strlKer The forces of lapor represented In tho conference might obtain sympathetic sup- port from the President on the steel strlko issue, as the Chief Executive has made his pfiltlon plain. Ho urged set tlement by arbitral. n before the confer ence met. lJecause of opposition from the employers and possibly from the public group, however, It seems that any nppeal to the President on the steel strike resolution would come from the labor representatives and not from tho conference. Interest In organized labor's effort to obtain Intervention by the conference In the steel strike shifted to-day to New loric ana steel centres, wnere members of the steering committee of fifteen which came to a deadlock over the reso lutlon yesterday, are endeavoring to se cure sufficient concessions from the stoel corporations to enable tho committee to agree upon a report to lay before the conference Tuesday. Members of the committee) here pointed out that conference action would be use less unless the United States Steel Cor poration was willing to accept mediation by the conference and agree to relnstato the striking workmen pending the report or tne adjudication committee of six pro posed by (Mr. Gompers. Judge E. II. Gary returned to New York yesterday following the session of the conference, and Is expected to confer w(th the directors of the Steel Corpora tion, of which he is chairman. Standard Steel Car Co. Got Big Sum, Is Charge. "Washington, Oct. 11. Charges that the War Claims Board In settling Gov ernment war contracts with the Standard Steel Car Company, of Hammond, Ind., allowed the company Jl, 832, 654 more than It Is entitled to was made before the House War Department Expendi tures Committee to-day by L. J. Blakey, Government cost accountant. During the war Mr. Blakey was Government Accountant In the car company's plant. Evidence was also presented by Mr. Blakey purporting to show that Col. Ev erett S. Hughes, ordnance officer, who negotiated the contract and Its settle ment, withheld from the board Mr. Blak cy's audit of the company's war work, Which shows the Government should have paid the company $1,167,346, In stead of $3,000,000, as has been done. In addition he claimed that the company all during the war misrepresented Ha production costs. "Tho Standard Bteel Car company," he Bald, "received a 'procurement order for tho manufacture of gun carriages for 9 Inch howitzers, none of which It completed before tho armistice, but 00 of which were completed after tne armistice, at a total cost to the Gov ernment of $59,000 each, although they cost to build less than $30,000 each. The company withheld records no that; tho Government accountants were unable to obtain nil the figures with exactness. The War Department also permitted the company to keep material which had cost the Government $2,000,000 and which Is needed and could be used by the Watortown Arsenal, for which the company allowed tho Government only $100,000."

SEES SOLUTION OF UNREST IN BIOLOGY l'luns for Outside Proposals, Proposals sent by the League for In dustrlal Bights to the conference were made public to-day. The conference has decided that proposals of this na ture from outside agencies will be fur nished each of the three groups, which are at liberty to bring them up for die cusslon In the regular way. One of tho measures proposed would mane It unlawful for any. person or cor poratlon to "support any strike, lock out or other kind of Industrial welfare,' before the parties Involved have had time to act upon the terms demanded. An other would make It a misdemeanor for policemen or firemen to affiliate with any labor union not composed exclus Ivoly of fellow employees. The three women members of the nubllo group began formulating de mands to be presented on behalf of women. The delegates Ida M.

Greater attention to the natural bio logical laws by which humanity exists was proposed as tho remedy for the pres ent Industrial unrest by Prof. Harring ton Emerson In an address last evening on "Those Economic Principles We Must All Grasp to Correct tho Crooked Think ing That Extends from President to Pau per," at the first bi-monthly conference of the National Association of Employ ment Managers, held In tho Pennsylvania Hotel. Prof. Emerson contended that collec tive bargaining by either capital or labor would fall at this time without a code of morality to which either party might turn for precedent. A code, he said, might be devised by a commission con sisting of such men as Cardinal Mercler, Gen. Gorgas and Charles W. Eliot, presi dent emeritus of Harvard, who would re spectively advise capital and labor on mo rality. Hygiene and vocational aptitude, Both employees and employers are to day Issuing ultimatums to one another on -which neither Is qunllfled to pag, but with which such ' a commission could deal, he said. "Dr. Eliot Is aa great an authority on education as he is not a great au thority on profit sharing," Prof. Emer son said. The professor reduced to-day's In dustrial situation by a series of anal ogles to elements comparable to those making up the human body and even went so far ae to say that the Steel Corporation had a "heart." A collapse equalled only by that of present day Ilusela was predicted by him unless the nation would turn for Its advice to men suited to deal with the phases of human and biological re lationships.

" ENTERTAIN BRITISH SOCIAL WORKERS This winter Is golngTb.be a nipper. It won't bo as savage' as" the chronic blizzard oM917, but It will be a whole lot colder than last winter,' EllaB B. Dunn says so and Ellas has been right often, enough (as weather prophets go) to compel respect for his prognostications. When he paid his seasonal visit to Tub Sun early last June he opined that the country was In for a cooltsh summer. His calculations proved to his satisfaction that the mer cury wouldn't climb above 90 degrees more than ten times In the whole sum mer and probably wouldn't get that high more than six times. It went above 90 Just six times. Farmer Dunn everybody calls him Farmer" since the days before 1898 when he was the official weather prophet In New York made his pre-wlnter call on The Sun last night and submitted the prediction of a long, cold spell be ginning the latter part of this month and enduring until about the middle of May. "Deductions from my system of sea sonal forecasting Indicate," said the Farmer, "that the coming winter will be long and cold, with heavier and more frequent snowfalls than tne average winter brings. Freezing temperatures are likely to begin the latter part of October and will continue urilll about May 12. The cold will be relieved occa sionally by short periods of mild weather, periods of two or three days at a time. I reckon that tho minimum temprature will not get below sero more than three times, however," Like most all wizards, the Farmer is clos'emouthed about his methods of wizardry. He calculates upon the basis of the records of many years fifty or sixty and takes into consideration the peculiarities of the current year. He sniffs at the hit or miss methods of nature, faker wizards, guesses based on the observations of squirrels storing nuts earlier than usual, because ho dis covered years ngo, bo says, that such methods nrd very fallacious. "When I was In tho Government ser vice," sa,ld Farmer Dunn, "we spent a lot of time and money collecting a record of these local, rustic superstitions. We made a list of all the farmers' beliefs and tho sailors' beliefs, and we submitted them to Investigation. The result was .that wo found that they Just don't work out. The study of weather is an exact science -which cannot be left to squirrels or nuts." Prudent people would do mighty well this fall to lay In a big coal supply early, Farmer Dunn thinks, and to take other reasonable precautions against the stiff, sharp winter he believes to be due.

A pitiable figure Btdod before Justice Hendrlck of the Supreme Court In the latter"s chambers yesterday afternoon and pleaded for his freedom. The man waB collarless and his shirt was worn threadbare nnd patched In several places. His clothing, also patched In many places and worn thin, seemed to hang on his spare frame. Dark circles around his eyes accentuated the unnatural pal lor of his face. His only offense was the lack of $500 or friends who would be willing to go surety for him for that amount The man was David Qoldhaber, -frequently referred to by the officials In charge of the Ludlow street Jail as the president of the Alimony Club. He Is the oldest member of that unique gath ering, having been ,in Jail since April, although six months' confinement Is sup posed to be the limit, and unless he obtains the relief he seeks through the habeas corpus writ upon which Justice Hendrlck heard arguments yesterday he may bo forced to remain In prison ror the rest of his life. Tears streamed down his face as he extended his hands to tho Justice, de spair was written on his face and In his nvery movement. His eyes sought the floor as he brushed his face with the back of his hand. With one shoo he tried to cover ur a hole In the other throuKh which his bare foot could be seen. The clothing he woro , comprised thft sum total of his possessions. "Please help mo, Judge," he pleaded. 'I cannot help myself while I am In Jail. Let me go again as a free man and I will do anything she wants me to do." Across the Toom eat a well dressed woman. Her clothing was of good qual ity and About her neck was an expen sive summer fur. She listened to the Irian's entreaties with an air of Indiffer ence which amounted to boredom. Sho was Mrs. Anna Qoldhaber of 148 Essex street, on whoso complaint her husband was arrested and 1b being deprived of his liberty, Qoldhaber rwaa arrested for contempt when he failed to pay his wlfo the ali mony' awarded In a separation suit. Justice Tlerney placed liU surety at $500, and when It became apparent that the man could not, provide this bond after he had been In Jail for several months Samuel E. Miller, an attorney of 90 Nassau street, became Interested In the case and took up cudgels In bo- half of Qoldhaber to tvohlm from life Imprisonment. A habeas corpus writ was taken out. Justice Hendrlck listened, to the argu ments, frequently expressing surprise that such a condition should be possible In a matrimonial action. When Mrs. Qoldhaber refused ' to relent the court reserved decision. Goldhaber was re turned to the Ludlow, street Jail. MEXICO YIELDS ON PASSPORTS.

Tiffany, 'Mrs. Victor Forban, tho Rev. Percy Stlckney Grant and others. In the visiting party were Alford Knight, a lawyer and publisher inter ested In opening tho British bar to women: W. N.

Langdon-Davtes, examiner of tho Scottish Board of Edu cation, and Mrs. Monica Ewer, a Lon don dramatic critic Mr. Langdon-Davies said the party had come to seek sympathetic liberal thought in America. "We want to bor row some of your energy and vigor," he said. "There Is a complete lack of civil liberties In England. Under the Defense of the Realm Act the individ ual never knows where liberty starts or ends, or when he Is secure. The Lloyd George Cabinet, In my opinion, will see the end of Its existence after tho next budget In April. Labor is winning all the byc-elcctlons and It Is reasonable to believe that It will rule outright In two or three years." Mr. Pethlck-Lawrence said the wom en of England were chiefly Interested at present In their political duties and reform In the divorce law. Mr. Knight, sneaking of Infringements of personal rights In England, said he thought Americans receive more Justice because they are entitled in all cases to a civil trial. In England It Is possible- to In flict Imprisonment without a charge or a trial, he said.

Rather than devise passing pal liatives and defer the final reckoning it would be prudent, In the opinion of some, to adjourn the conference and permit economic pressure to write Its ruthless solution." Nor would selfishness be permitted to enter into the settlement, declared the New Tork Senator. "The public," he said, "will have little patlenco In seeing Its Interests subordi nated and Its production held In abey ance, while either employer or employea perfects machinery or systems for self ish protection or exploitation.
