Improves Social Conditions. -Mr. YeiUev went over the housing I proi/iem generally from a community tuandpoint. quoting many facts show i the difference in health, social and <-.\.c conditions between good and bad housing districts. He also touched strongly upon the labor question as It applies to every concern In the country today, warning that, although the nation was entering a period of the greatest prosperity it has ever known, the employment problem is one of the most serious industry had ever confronted in America. It was pointed out by Mr. Savllle that the houses being erected in the Middle West, by corporations similar to that being formed here, compare tavorably with those in Barton Heights and Ginter Park. "They really aro ideal places to live." he stated, "and they are being occupied rot by the factory managers, but by 1 the workmen themselves." tlonHrs Rented or Sold. It appeared to be the plan of the men who purchased stock yesterday to develop similar communities in Rich mond. the houses to be sold or rented, according to the convenience of work ers. Purchases of standard parts, but not the erection of standard houses, or homes htr.lt entirely alike, was advocated by the experts and others j at the meeting. Mr. Savillo told the Richmond men that they must, take immediate action j if they were to compete with the Northern and Western industries in the labor market. Concerns elsewhere, he pointed opt, have "scouts" in Vir- I ginia at this time, ana have had them | for months, urging men to come to their communities and work, promisfcig and providing them with suitable homes, which they may either buy or j rent. Mr. Saviile stated that the great J automobile concerns of the Middle West have learned beyond question that it is to their benefit to provide proper housing conditions for their j employees, and declared that it be hooved Richmond to carry out its hous ing corporation plan if it hoped to ; compete with other industrial centers and keep at home its present workers, I attract others, and bring to the city new industrial concerns. To Make l'lann Today, It is planned to form a temporary organization of officials at a meeting to he hel'i at 12 o'clock today at the First National Bank, when those who sub scribed stock at yesterday's meeting will outline plans for raising of Ji, 000,000. the goal set as the capital of the corporation. Confidence was ex pressed at yesterday's meeting that this amount of stock would be sub scribed, as It was pointed out that the corporation was an investment propo sition and reports from similar asso ciations elsewhere showed 5 per cent dividends. Many phases of the corporation's purposes and probable activities were discussed at the meeting yesterday. It was pointed out by Mr. Velller and others that the corporation must work with a large vision, not necessarily large finances. Not less than tiftv acres of land was recommended as the primary purchase of the corporation, and this property should be developed along most modern lines, namely, that the old idea of wide paved streets, eimed a useless expenditure, be aban doned, and that the streets be narrow er. ? hat alleyways be eliminated as a nu'sance and that the land be plotted and lail out in an attractive form and manner. Section* Are Crowded. Mr. Veiller pointed out in his address that he had visited many parts of the city during the day and that lamenta ble conditions existed in certain sec tions. particularly in the colored dis tricts. Much of the. city's laundry work was done, he learned, in these communities where families are crowd ed together and disease Is prevalent, and he showed the ease with which this disease is spread throughout the city. He quoted figures and instances where model cities, devoid of slums and crowded districts, had been built in this country and in England. The death rates aro far lower in the cities of good housing conditions than in those with inadequate provisions. "America is destined to face Its greatest period of prosperity during tho next few years." he said. "The markots of the world aro literally at our feot But Industry faces one great problem?the shortage of labor, both flkllled and unskilled.

Sands, of Richmond, chairman of the committee of taxation, stated, in, part: It has been the endeavor of your committee to convince the lawmakers that bank shares are intangible property, and. therefore, they should not be taxed at a higher rate than other intangible property in the same State, "amely. a maximum of SI.03 upon the S100. and 1" view of the additional fact that Jverv dollar invested in bank shares, rilus*all accretions in the form of sur plus and undivided profits, is assessed, not 1 cent escaping.

Sisson. vice-president of the Guarantv Trust Company, spoke on "Invisible Tariff," his address dealing entirely with our foreign relations as they affect our economic arrangements and the opportunities that lie at America's door as a result of the war. He also touched briefly on the. issue be tween capital and labor, declaring his belief in the progressive principle that labor was to reap a larger part of the proceeds of its toil in the future.

Mr. Wooley, in his address yesterday, declared: "Return of the railroads to private operation during the readjustment period would occasion a necessity for increased freight rates that would mean a rise. In prices in this country, j the a'iex of which no man could pre dict."' Owing lo the cut in railroad revenues rauscd hy diminishing traffic during the readjustment period and other con ditions. said Mr. Wooley. the Inter state Commerce Commission would be forced to grant an increase in rates if the roads were returned to permit them a fair revenue. For these readjust ment conditions would prevail, he said, regardless of whether operation of tho roads was retained by tho government or relinquished to tho owners. "Isn't it far sounder economics," said Mr. Woolley. "to tako care of any deficit from carrier operations out of the National Treasury, whose coffers aro replenished through taxes levied where they can best be borne, than to force by their return an increase in rates?" Vrgen Continued Federal Control. The. opinion is held by railroad of ficials generally, said Mr. Woolley, that a rate increase of at least 30 per cent would be necessary upon return of the roads. This, ho declared, would mean another swing through the "vicious circle" of mounting prices, estimating thnt such a rato advance would be re flected "fourfold" in tho price of finished commodities to the consumor.

"He was a direct secret service em ployee. bearing the number 963152637, given him by the imperial War Minis ter." said Mr. Choate. "He ramc hero, became a citizen under orders from his government, and led the espionage an<l propagandist movements till his death in November. 1917." In the report, which was forwarded to Count von Hernstorff, Dr. Schweit zer declared that the German dye in dustry would have no dltliculty in holding the American market in the face of tiie 30 per cent ad valorem duty, but that the specific duties im posed under the law would be more troublesome. He added the Germans must sell more than 40 per cent of the derivatives and dyes in the American market, so the President could abolish the specific duties, as the law pro vided would be done It 60 per cent of the home consumption was not pro duced in America. A hostile dye industry. Mr. Choate declared. is an Ideal center of espionage and propaganda. A native dye industry is necessary, he said, as it controls the fate of $3,000,000,000 a year of American goods which can not be made without its products, it alone can provide and keep available in peace time an inexhaustible source i of explosives and poisonous gases needed for national defense, it alone can insure due progress in industrial chemistry, and it alone can provide both personnel and material needed for the advancement of scientific and medicinal chemistry.

KING EMMANUEL IN DECISION C ?GE Situation May Se. usly Affect Action of Paris Peace Conference. Hl.VS MAY HOLD PLEBISCITE Feeling Grows in Germany That Treaty Terms Must Be Accepted I?y Delegates. PARIS, June If.?Advices received tonight from Rome state that the ! Italian government has resigned, fol lowing an adverse vote against ft in the Chamber of Deputies. Pemler Orlando, in announcing hla resignation and that of the Cabinet, said King Victor Emmanuel' had re served decision as to acceptance. The Chamber of Deputies had, by a vote of ^.">9 to 7S, rejected Premier Orlando's motion in favor of discuss ing the question of confidencc, which related to the. foreign policy of the government. In secret session. Prior to the vote Premier Orlando, in addressing the chamber, said: "Italy's peace with Germany and Austria lias been solved in a manner with which, on the whole. I feel sat isfied." Insisting on the necessity of a secret session, the Premier declared that the government needed greater confidence, and would treat his motion for a secret session as a question of confidence. The Socialists Immediately opposed this. Signor Orlando. In his address, said Italy's position had been considerably aggravated by international events during the second fortnight of April. He referred to President Wilson's message regarding the Adriatic ques tion. The Italian delegation at th8 peace conference, the Premier adde-d, had followed this policy: "First. Maintain with firmness all the essential points of the Italian claims, without which Italy Is con vinced peaco will be neither just nor adequate to the immense sacrifices suffered. "Second Remain faithful in your duties toward the allies. "Third. Avoid any blind form of ob stinate intranslgeance. Indeed, facill t4*te conciliatory suggestions capable of producing accord in the conference over the problems concerning Italian frontiers. Signor Orlando urged Parliament to separate the discussion of foreign af fairs troni the internal policy of the country, the latter being virtually ab sorbed in the grave question of the High cost of living. Past history showed, lie said, that internal pertur bations were transitory anil that et*n.. 'uni soon would be regained. 1 he govorument, the Premier con tinued. was determined to strengthen tlie defense of consumers against the cupidity of speculation, which had as sumed almost the form of folly. The government intended to suppress to the utmost possible the machinations of the middleman and aid in bringing about co-operation among consumers. Having complete control of bread, rice, cereals, sugar and petroleum, he added, the government would sell them at low fixed prices. Meat would be imported, he said, and distributed at the cost without profit and without tax. In summing up the situation, Signor Or lando said: "The deep unrest throughout! tho world leads to pessimism such as was never experienced during the war. Im mediately after the armistice was signed the peoples in general. Italian in particular, never went through such dr.rk days as now. This is the moat acute pharte of the Immense crisis aris ing from the war. Nevertheless, I am not discourager}, believing as I do that the situation gradually will ameliorate." Situation I.h Sertoli*. A political crisis arose several weeks ago In Rome and caused three members of the Orlando government : to resign. The Premier returned to I Rome from Paris and was able to ad just the difficulties. The labor and food situation in Italy has not been of the best since the ! signing of the armistice, and a geti ! eral strike began in Rome Tuesday j night. Last week there were strikes and disorders in Spezia, Turin and Milan. While the members of the German , peace delegation are still reported un 1 officially as violently opposed to sign I ing the treaty #ml the greater part of ; the German Cabinet to bo of similar ; mind, latest Indications are that tho I general feeling in Germany is lending i toward recognition of the fact that j the allied demands must be met.
