RAIL WAGE
ISSUE HELD
FOR M'ADOO
? ?
8-Hour Day Point for Final
Decision When Director
Comes Back.
Decision of the Railway Wage
Commission is being held up until
the return of Director General Mc
Adoo from a short* outing in Virginia j
It was learned yesterday. Chairman |
Franklin K. Lane's commission has
closed its hearings and,*It is under- ,
stood, reached tentative agreements,
on ail points but one?whether the i
eight-hour day shall be granted to
the employes of the roads other than i
members of the brotherhoods.
These employes, who outmumber the
brotherhood members four to one, |
were left out of the eight-hour law. I
Having been left out. they organised
and carried their light to Washing
ton.
Boat on Men Head Campaign.
Two Boston men have had charge
of the campaign. They are Earl H.
Morton, president ot the Order of
Railroad Station Agents, and P. J.
Coyle, grand president. Brotherhood
of Railway Station Employes. Both
testified before the commission.
"The commission gave us a fair
hearing,** said Morton last night. "We
have every reason to believe it will
rule justly in our case. We feel, how- j
ever, that It is a case of now or never
with us. If the government, after
recognising the eight-hour principle
so readily and generously elsewhere, j
does not apply it to us. our case may
be lost for good. We are asking only i
for the eight-hour day.'*
The railroad companies are
afraid that if the government gives
us the eight-hour day they will never j
be able to put us back on the old;
eleven and twelve-hour system,"
Coyle said: "They are looking ahead
to the time when they think they will
be operating the roads again."
Representative Fred W. Dallinger.
of Massachusetts, yesterday joined
Representative Peter F. Tague in
calling the attention of Chairman
Lane to the claims of unskilled rail
road laborers. Dallinger, who aided
the postal employes in their eight
hour day fight, wrote to Chairman
Lane as follows:
"I am writing to you, as chairman
of the railway wage commission, to
urge upon you as strongly as I can
the justice of the request of the great
mass of railway employes outside of
those already enjoying the privilege,
fbr a basic eight-hour day.
liieritMd Law Was General.
"I happen to know that, when the
Adamson law was enacted a great
many people understood the law af
fected all employes of the railroads of
the United States. As a matter of
fact. It only affected about one-fifth
of the railway employes, and that
fifth consisted of those already re
ceiving the very highest wages. The
other four-fifths certainly are as
much entitled to an eight-hour day
? as their more fortunate brethren.
"As representative of a large indus
trial district, I shall greatly appre
ciate your favorable consideration of
this very reasonable request."

Mothers can rest easy after giving'

they become tightly packed, liver gets

PHILADELPHIA
MAY BE MADE
BIG DRY SPOT
Military Authorities Will
Enforce Prohibition to
Protect Soldiers.
Failure of any city or town to aid
the military police in stamping out
vice and the illicit sale of liquor will
be considered as grounds for a Fed
eral^ order forbidding the sale of in
toxicants in the slacker communities*
according to Raymond B. Fosdick,
who as chairman of the Commission
on Training Camp Activities, recently
urged that the Navy Department
exert pressure on the city officials to
bring about reformi in Philadelphia.
Unless the city government of Phila
delphia takes steps soon to protect
soldiers and sailors, it is intimated
that the city will be "dried up."
Recent orders of the -Navy Depart
ment which closed all saloons In An
napolis and in towns near naval train
ing stations have established the fact
that the war administration will not
hesitate to proceed against any city
which fails to accept the responsi
bility of supporting the regulations
imposed by the army and navy upon
the nation's fighting forces.
It is admitted that enforced prohi
bition of a city as large as Phila
delphia would be a drastic .step and
that such a measure will' not be
brought into play until all other
means for reform have been tried.
"Thousands and thousands of young
men are In training at army or navy ,
stations at or near Philadelphia," said j
Mr. Fosdick. "Most of them visit |
Philadelphia when given liberty. It is i
possible that the Navy and War de
partments might rule that men should
not visit Philadelphia when on liberty
leave, but this would work a great in
justice on men who have worked hard
and faithfully to win a few hours
vacation and who crave the theaters
and the crowds of the city.
COLORATURA SOPRANO

was originally booked at the National
Theater on Friday.
The sensational songbird who has

M'CORMACK DRAWS
CAPACITY AUDIENCE
Great Lyric Tenor Fills Poll's; Is
Asked to Return.
John McCormack, Ireland's great
lyric tenor, drew a more than ca
pacity audience to Poll's yesterday
afternoon.
It was the largest crowd that has
this season flocked to hear any artist
in Washington, filling not only the
350 extra chairs on the platform, but
also the rear silsle. where stood hun
dreds who had been unable to pro
cure seats. So many were disap
pointed at being turned away that
Mrs. Wilson-Greene has arranged a
return engagement for April 26.
It was McCormack's second appear
ance here this season, for he had
given a series of recitals during the
early winter for the Red Cross.
Mr. McCormack's voice still has
those qualities which have endeared
him to his audiences. Its strength
and beauty of tone and the artist's
perfect control combine to make Mc
Cormack's voice entrancing. That
the charm and appeal of His singing
are best appreciated In the ballad
type of song Is shown by a compari
son of the applause for his Handel
number with that aroused by
'?Mother Machree.' His group of
Irish songs brought forth a storm of
applause, and the audience showed
much appreciation of his generosity
with encores.
Andre Polah, a young violinist, 'the
assisting artist, played effectively.
The Wieniawski number was well re
celved and deserved Its encore. Ed
win Schneider proved a capable ac
companist.
The program follows:
Recitation and air (Handel), "Deep

Ark., April I to May 8. An editorial
In the women's official magazine,
out yesterday, aays In part:
"We have made clothes a pastime.
While rebelling at the Waste of time
and money in following fashions,
we have not been sufficiently cour
ageous to brealc away from our
traditional ways.
"Many of our styles and gowns
have been artistic and beautiful;
Many have been inartistic and hid
eous. We have been willing to be
(jldeously in fashion rather than
beautifully out of it."
The editorial declares that while
all dresses should not be alike,
women's street clothes should be as
similar as men's suits.

I For those leading a quiet life at home it is often the unexpected
that happens. It may be that we are mysteriously attacked by pain
in our back or limbs, lumbago, "neuralgic" pains?shooting any
where. Backache of any kind is often caused by kidney disorders,
which means that' the kidneys are not working properly. Poisonous
matter and uric acid accumulate within the body in great abundance,
overworking the sick kidneys; hence the congestion of blood causes
backache in the same manner as a similar congestion in the head
causes headache. Perhaps you become nervous, despondent, sick,
feverish, irritable, ha-fe spots appearing before ? the eyes, bags under
the lids, and lack of ambition to do things. The latest and most
effective means of overcoming such trouble, is to eat sparingly of
meat, drink plenty of water between meals, and take a single An-nric
Tablet before each meal for a while, or until recovered.
Simply ask your favorite druggist for Anuric Tablets (donble

i "The appointment of these re

co-operation between the Bureau of

ernmental revenues and accord
equitable treatment to taxpayers.
No effort has been spared in our

ministrative regulations.
"With this organization taxpayers
may be assured of intelligent and
painstaking consideration of their
returns and of an impartial and
equitable application of the law

of Internal Revenue.
Late Returns Allowed.
"Collectors have been directed to
permit delinquent taxpayers to sub

PLANS AWAIT
APPROPRIATION
Shipping Board Prepares
Specifications for Stand
ardized Steamers.
Standardization of a 3,500 deadweight
ton concrete seagoing steamship has
been completed by the United States
Shipping Board, It waM learned last
night.
In addition to these finished plans
and specifications, others are ready
for a program of concrete seagoing
tugs, harbor tugs, oil tank, tow barges
and cargo tow barges. *?
Ready to Expand Program.
Everything is ready now for an ex
pansion of the Shipping Board's ten
tative concrete ship program, now lim
ited to four steamships, one of 1,000,
I two of 3,500 and one of 7,500 deadweight
tons, but the plans and specifications
will not be made public for bidding till
Congress makes a further appropria
! tion to the board for concrete ships.
The reports of the engineers of the
I concretc division of the board. It was
said, has not lessened the enthusiasm
of both btfard and Emergency Fleet
officials for the concrete ships. In fact,
the reports have so impressed the gov
ernment shipping officials that they
have decided to build tugs and harbor
craft of ferro-concrete construction.
However, the original appropriation
for shipbuilding did not contemplate
a concrete program, and. moreover,
most of the ship contracts contemplat
ed In the original program already
have been awarded or are an Integral
part of future arrangements.
Wants C'ongreaa to Deride.
For these reasons. It was said, and
because there is pressure from Con
gress itself, through its Individual
members in behalf of constituents, to
force the board into a program not yet
tested by the experience of a big con
crete ship at sea. the entire matter
of concrete ship construction is to be
threshed out before Congress In a re
quest for a specific appropriation.
If that appropriation is granted, bids
will be asked at once upon the plans
and specifications now ready. Four
concrete yards are already at work,
at Redondo Beach and Redwood City.

Lame and Achy Every
Morhing ?
It's hard to have to start off every day with a lame,
aching back, but you can expect little peace if your
kidneys are weak. While at fir* there may be nothing
more serious than backache, headaches, dizzy spells and
kidney irreg#arities, the longer you delay helping 'the
kidneys the more danger there is of worse troubles, such
as dropsy, gravel, arterial hardening, heart trouble, or
Bright's disease. Use Doan't Ktdneg Pill*. They are
helping thousands. You can believe what home people
say about them.
