WASHiNOTOjf, Oct. 11. 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

Conference not to forget that the In

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

of them.

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. In six months.
No Escape for Lull or.
tLabor2 cannot escape the respon
sibility for much of this Increase. In
living costs from 98 per cent In March
to 128 per cent. In September. 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

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

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
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
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

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

Members of the committee) here pointed
out that conference action would be use

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

negotiated the contract and Its settle

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.

cost to build less than $30,000 each.
The company withheld records no that;

l'luns for Outside Proposals,
Proposals sent by the League for In

made public to-day. The conference
has decided that proposals of this na
ture from outside agencies will be fur

are at liberty to bring them up for die

One of tho measures proposed would
mane It unlawful for any. person or cor

other would make It a misdemeanor

Prof. Emerson Shows by Anal
ogy Mistakes Being Made.
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
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

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."

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
"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
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

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
A habeas corpus writ was taken out.

that such a condition should be possible

Luncheon in City Club for
"Inspiration Seekers.
A party of British social workers and
writers seeking to obtain American in
splratlon for the labor movement In
England along with other social reforms
was entertained at a luncheon yester
day In the City Club, C7 West Forty
fourth street, by a reception committee
consisting of John Lovejoy Elliott, Mr.
and Mrs. Raymond Robins, Herbert
Croly, Mrs. Charles L. 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. Ewer, poet and foreign
editor of the London Daily Herald; F.
W. Pethlck-Lawrcnce, a worker for
woman suffrage; B. 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.

How to make 15 to 1 adjustment
After filling the gasoline tank
with Tydol, run tho engine until
warm. Then lift tho hood.
