Tho present scale of wages In thes districts, which was agreed to Febru ary 14, was to continue In effect six months, making a readjustment possible on August 14. The I-abor Adjustment Hoard held a series of conferences with the various J Lhlnvard craft unions in Auvust. durlne which wage adjustments were discussed at length.

Senators Rap Qlnlrf I?nirlc Utlllivci Jklttlto Continued from race One advised him that department was re sponsible. Senator Johnson, nf California, de clared the New Lork round-up was con ducted for the purpose of spreading "terrorism," which would never be ex pected to occur in a republic, but only In a country like Oerniany.- "This ter rorism," he added. "Is the same sort that makes It Impossible for the news papers of this land to print what they i deslro and to permit u man to say , from the platform what he wnats to I say." ' Many of tho men taken Into custody In New York, Senator .luhnsiui asseite.i. i were arrested simply because tlW ! looked as though they might be within , the draft age. and although that was , age. anu aitnough that was , crime charged against them, i held for hours by the authorl- ! tne only en they were He I Senator Johnson declared tho onlv place throughout this countrj" where lib- j ' erty of sneech exists N on the ftnne nf the United States Senate and as long , as he was a member olm intended tn i protest every time "militarism runs ram pant." Compared With fieniinn Incident Senator Sherman, of Illinois, asked Senator Johnson If the writ of habeas corpus had been suspended and tho California Senator replied that In tho draft raids, that and every other writ had been Ignored. "Is this one of the ways of making the world and the United States of America safe for democracy?" Senator Sherman Inquired, Replying, Senator Johnson said that while he knew Senator Sherman was among those disturbed over socialistic ventures he, himself, was1 not so dis turbed over "material things" as those affecting personal rights. The discussion ended with recital by i Senator Sherman of the alleged lncl- dent In Germany before the war in which a German officer wa. court-mar- tlaled for stabbing a citizen who failed to get oft a sidewalk. "Is there any material difference," Senator Sherman asked, "between this militarism and Kalserism in Berlin and t the bayoneting of Innocent men In the streets of New York?" Tolndexter Defends ItuiiU While regarding It as unfortunate any innocent man should have been appre hended, Senator Volndexter, of Wash ington, In reopening1 debate later, de- clared there had been a "good deal of looseness in the assertion of facts" by .Senators, and that the New ork au thorities were simply performing their duty In rounding up slackers. He de fended the action, as a "Justifiable mili tary proceeding," and said there was nothing to show that the rights to a writ of habeas corpus had been sus pended or that any man caught In the raid had made any effort to resort to this legal procedure. He added that there was nothing to show any great hardship was imposed on any of the men, and that there had been an exaggeration of tho whole affair.

SEPTEMBER 5, ? 1918' : 4 v- J4V4vV VV'?; PENROSE AND BONNIWELL DENY TRUTH OF PALMER'S CHARGES Continued from Tiute One n few sclf-constltuted officeholders Is seldom witnessed In the management of nny party. The prjscnt Democratic leadership In Pennsylvania has never been deep-rooted or In any way In ac cord with tho real Democratic strength of the State. It Is based solely on the control of Federal patronage under tho Wilson administration. "Few of the real Democrats who hold electlre olllee from Democratic sections arc In any kind of harmony with tho Pnliner-McCormlck-Guffey leadership. It seems strange that any political leader ship should so pers'stently Ignore and drive away such Important party ele ments, but ijucIi Is the fact. I'"ew Are Klected "Tho holding of Federal office Is tho chief iinalllleallon for participation In the councils of the Pnlmer-Guffcy-Mc-Cormlck coterie. The members nro all nppolnted and few arc over elected to anything. Hence, the Democrat to party In Philadelphia and Pennsylvania has been demoralized. The slato arbitrarily set up by the Guffcy-Palmcr-McCormlck outfit was repudiated at the primary election by the real Democratic voters o ftlo Slntc. "Tills Is the actual Democratic situa tion, fwhlch tcsulted, lrtually In the dls bamlonmeiit for the time being of a great paity. "President Wilson has ostentatiously announced upon a sqlemn occasion In a speech to the Senate nnd House that politics should lio adjourned, and Mr. McAdoo has recently called upon the employes nf the railways to get out of politics. .It would bo befitting, becom ing nnd decent, If Palmer, McCormick nnd Guffey were called off and ordered to attend strictly to the supposed non partisan duties of their positions. "Palmer pailicularly holds a position of high financial and Industrial Import ance, dealing with property amounting to many millions, and he could well abstain from partisanship nt this time and int permit his activities to sink to the level of a village postmaster holding office as the result of partisan service. .Should AdmlnlMer Ofllee" "Certainly the duties of alien property custodian arc exacting enough, and he should administer ills office for tho good of the whole people and on strictly nonr partisan lines.

So fur as his reported re marks affect any conversation I 'may have had with him at any tlmc, they aro untrue. Ho Is reported as saying, "Jolm Slu. nott, president of tho Pennsylvania Wholesale Liquor Dealers' Association, Or en stein ' r Notice is hereby given that the undersigned, A. Mitchell Palmer, Alien Property Custodian, has revised the terms of sale and has postpohed, until September 12th, 1918, the sale of the property of the Orenstein-Arthur Koppel Company, and will offer for sale to the.highest bidder, at public sale, on the premises at the front door of the central office building of the Orenstein-Arthur Koppel Company, at Koppel, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, at 3 o'clock, P.M., on Thursday, the 12th day of September, nineteen hundred and eighteen, all the property and assets of every kind and description be longing to Orcnstein & Koppel-Arthur Koppel Aktiengesellschaft, regis tered under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as Orenstein Arthur Koppel Company, asa going concern, including all the real estate, buildings, machinery, modern plant for the manufacture of mine and indus-, trial cars and portable railway equipment, patents,' good will, supplies, finished and unfinished' material of said Company; and also all the real estate, property and assets of the Koppel Land Company, Beaver Connect ing Railroad Company, "Koppel Water Company, Pennsylvania Car and Manufacturing Company, Orenstein-Arthur Koppel Company a corpora tion of Pennsylvania, Universal Railway Products Company, and Koppel Sales Company, together with all the capital stock of said companies which 6aid capital stock is owned by Orenstein & Koppel-Arthur Koppel Aktiengesellschaft.

I did not make that statement. Neither did I make any stntement from which such a conclusion could bo drawn. It Is untruo, Mr. Palmer Is further reported ns saying, "Sinnott, a Pcnroso lieutenant, said Penrose selected Bonnlwcll." 1 did not use Senator Penrose's nnme In any way during tho conference to which he refers. The statement is without foundation. It Is false. Tho only fact connected with the' whole story Is only that part of the statement which say tho ."object ot my visit was to persunde him to co operato with Judge Bonnlwell." This fact, I argued, could be done for har mony and without Injury to his leader ship In the Democratic party. Referring to all tho other reported sayings In tho articles which appeared In yesterday's afternoon Philadelphia papers, Insofar 'hs they purport to be a conversation with me. anil so far a they further purport to put sayings Into my mouth, they nro untrue In toto, nnd nro absolutely not the facts tit any conversation 1 ever had with Mit chell Palmer. Ryan Inuei Drnlnl Mr. Palmer yesterday said Sinnott fold him that he (Sinnott) had paid Michael J. Ryan's campaign expenses In curred (n tho gubernatorial campaign of 1014. , Mr. Ryan today denied Sinnott had paid his campaign expenses.. He said ho did not know SlnnoW, would not know him If ho saw him, and that Pal mer's charges. In so far an they related to him, were without foundation. He knew nothing of the other allegations inadu by Pa'mcr nffectlng BonnlwolL The Tubllc Service Commissioner, without showing visible nngcr, gave the Impression of being deeply inccpsed at Palmer's references to him, PLAN FEWER TROLLEY RUNS Reduction in Number "of Cars Per Hour llcing Considered The Slate fuel administration Is con sidering a suggestion to reduce the number of trolley cars an hour during certain oft houra .throughout Pennsyl vania. It was stated by K. L. Cole, assistant lo Fuel Administrator Poller, that the plan advanced by New York transit In terests that all service bo s'topved be tween midnight and 5 a. m. was out of tho question for Philadelphia or for any section of the Slate. "Thero arc too many night workers for this suggestion to he feasible in Pennsylvania." Mr. Cole said, "hut as for cutting down the number of car runs, Investigation has shown that where cars ran eleven minutes apart tho commu nity would be served Just as well by running them fifteen minutes apart. In t her cases where cars are run at seven minute Intervals during slack periods, in ono would be greatly Inconvenienced if the cai" were operated at tcn-mlnute intervals." BIGGEST U.J.
