Here la an example of th? old adage
"?OU can't keep a good man down."
It la a ?tory of a Washington pa
triot who. after having received nine
wound? In battle, la going hack to
d?* some mor? fighting.
Th? neun? of the patriot la William
B. Covert who. although only 21
year? old, saw six-months' service In
the front-line trenches, took part in
the ?torming of Vimy Ridge, had the
back of his head torn open, his ears
punctured and his shoulders battered
with ahrapnel. was discharged as phy
sically unfit for future servie?, was
expatriated, tried to volunteer after
returning to America, was rejected,
and I? now callad In th? draft.
Three years ago Covert lived at 302
V street northeast. He waa working
In th? composing room of The Wash
ington Herald. One day he disap
peared. Thi? waa long before America
entered th? world war.
Went te Fraaea?
Soane time later Mr. Covert wrote
from France. From Washington he
had gone to Canada. He wa? an
American, but ?aw that England and
France were fighting a common foe.
On September 1, 1915. he enlisted in
the Eighty-sixth Machine Gun Bat
talion. After he arrived in France he
waa transferred to a Lewis gun sec
tlon In the Twenty-ninth Battalion.
Covert first saw service In the
Souches sector. Then he was trans
ferred to the Vimy Ridge battle front.
It waa during the storming of this
ridge by th? famous Canadian regi

PAY FOR LABOR
BOARD RULING
Decision on Rate for C. T.
C. Trainmen Is to Be
Arbitrated.
Capital Traction trainmen have
agr?er, to let the National War Labor
Board settle the matter of their
wage?.
The men are asking for a wage In
crease to a maximum of 48 cents per
hou?. The present maximum is Ml
cents per hour. They state that the
trainmen In other cities receive 48
cents, where living conditions and
prices are no higher than In Washing
ton.
At the time the employes submitted
the wage Increase demand to the
company they announced that there
would be no strike if It were not
granted, as the men are now working
under contract which is not subject to
revision before next spring.
Comaaay Saggeat? r?ntpromlse.
The compromise on the decision of
the War Labor Board Is made at the
suggestion of the company's officials.
They suggested that as the National
War Labor Board had been created
for the purpose of regulating such
matters during the war period, the ap
plication for a wage Increase should
properly be referred to that board.
The union was represented by a
committee consisting of M. W. Poole,
president; J. H. Cookman and W. t?.
Pollltt.
Application has also been made to
the Washington Railway and Electric
I'ompany for a maximum wage scale
of 48 cents. Officials yesterday said
the matter waa still under advise
ment.

MEXICO MAY
TAKE OILFIELD
OF AMERICANS
Uys a Confiscalory Tax
Which May Bring Serious
Situation for Allies.
The Mexican government'? arbitrary
refusal to consider th? British protest
against oil tases brought out here yes
terday that a similar communication
from the United States has been en
tirely Ignored by Carranza.
The reuslt was an announcement by
accredited representative? of American
oil companie?, which control th? bulk
of the Mexican oil fields, that they
have decided to Ignore Carranza'? oil
decree.
The executive officers and represen
tatives of the oil companies have been
meeting la Houston, New Tork and
Washington to consider all phases of
th? situation. The final resolution
waa to refus? payment of rentals im
posed and the consequent recognition
of the very much more vital confisca
tory features of the decree.
Caald Seise Oil Lands.
One effect of the failure to pay the
new land rentals will be to throw oil
properties open to denouncement, it Is
declared. This means the Mexican
governai -nt will be left free to seize
? he oil field? and dispose of them to
o'hers, unless protection Is afforded
by the Interested governments.
Such a situation has not been over
looked In Germany, It la said. It gives
added significance to the recent boast
of Albert Ballin, president of th? vast
German shipping syndicat?, and ?of
Herr von Riedemann, the petroleum
king, that they poaess "definite pros
pects of exploiting oil fields in certain
overseas countries.??
Statements obtained from Important
producers of petroleum In Mexico fol
low:
Sfexlea Dodge?.
"Mexico'? reply dodges the Issue
Recent oil decrees Issued In Mexico
are based on the latest constitution
of Mexico, which attempt? to vest In
the nation, oil deposit? acquired law
fully by American, British and Dutch
companies, on which the allies' oil
supply depends. Incidental mention
of conflscatory taxes was made In
the BTitlsh and American note?, but
the proteets were distinctly directed
against the confiscation ot oil.
"As stated In the American note:
The United State? cannot ?cquiesce
in any procedure, ostensibly or nomi
nally In the form of taxation, but
really resulting In confiscation of pri
vate property and arbitrary depriva
tion of vested right?.'
] "Foreign Minister Agullar ?tate?
that the oil companies must exhaust
their remedies in Mexican court?. This
they are doing, with smsll hope of
success. In view of the statement of
the Mexican chief Justice that he and
his colleagues are first revolutionists
and then Judges.
False Gaaraateee.
"HI.? statement that the Mexlcsn
government gives guarantee? to th?
oil producers f?cilitating their devel
opment Is not in accord with the
facts. Since February ??, this year.
House. Mlllnrd. Dunn, ?paula. Coop
er, Mesa and Stevenson, unarmed
American employes of American com
panies, and ten Mexican employe*
have been murdered: eleven Amer
ican employes wounded in murder
ous assault by armed Mexicans or
soldiers, and 1120,000 stolen from
American paymasters In thirty-one
separate robberies In the oil terri
tory controlled by his government.
Law? Cave Title.
"The former laws and governments
of Mexico for more than thirty years
recognised the title of foreigners as
well as of Mexican citizens to oil
under the surface. Inducements to
develop these oil lands at great ex
pense have been offered to foreign
ers, have been accepted, and scores of
millions of dollars expended in lands,
leases, material and labor, to prove
the existence of oil In these land?
and to develop. These contract.? were
made by governments of Mexico,
fully recognized by all civilized no
tions.
"As to the rebuke which Aguilar.
in the note, administers to the Brit
ish government, and. by Inference,
also to the American government,
which has filed notes similar to that
of Great Britain, astonishment and
surprise are the only emotions whlc'.i
It can evoke."
KING OF HOBOES TELLS
2,000 OF FRONT SCENES
The atrocities of the Germsns and
the part which the American Red

waa vividly Impressed by first-hand
Information from "Jeff" Davis. "King
of Hoboes." at a monster and en
thusiastic Red Cross rally last evening
at Cbapel Point, under the auspices
of the La Plata Chapter.
More than 2,000 persons were in at
tendance, and It was one of the big
gest gatherings of Ita kind ever held
In that vicinity.
One of the features of the evening
was the address of "Jeff" Davis. He
has spent some time at the front and
drew a graphic word picture of a
Red Cross nurse carrying a wounded
soldier, more than two times her
weight, across No Man's Land amid
a rain of German machine-gun bul

Mr. Davi? left late last night for

TAX ON PROFITS
IS DISPUTED.
IN COMMITTEE
Treasury Holds for Present
Rates; Committee
Wants Increase.
Notwithstanding Secretary Mc
Ailoo's argent plea to th? Ways and
Means Committee to accept the Treas
ury Department's scaie of rates for
the war profits and excess profits
taxes In the revenue bill, the close of
yesterday's session found tne commit
tee and the Treasury officials aa far
from agreement as before.
It waa firmly stated by members or
the committee that it would not agree
to allow the excess profits rates to re
main the same as they are in the
present law. These rate?, it was
stated, will be very materially ln
cre.-iscd, and this Is the very thing to
which Secretary McAdoo ?a ?o
strongly opposed.
Moreover, the disagreement will
make It lmposaible to have th? bill re
ported to the House next Monday aa
had been planned. Chairman Kltchln
announced that because of the
wrangle over these rates he would be
unable to Introduce the bill before th?
following Monday. This will postpone
final action on the bill, which Secre
tary McAdoo insists must become law
before the opening of the next liberty
loan campaign on September 28.
Treaasury I'rge? SB Per t eat.
The committee ?pent the entire
day in conference with Treasury
experts, who u,rged that the excess
profits 'rates should be the same
as In the existing law, and that the
war profit? tax be fixed at 80 per
cent. Dr. T. 8. Adam?, on? of the
Treasury experts, asiured the com
mittee that if this suggestion were
sdopted the bill would produce the
required maximum of 18.000,000,000.
Members of the committee and tbe
committee's own expert disagreed
with him and declared that unless
the excess profit? rate? were raised
the total would be fully 1300.000,000
short of the desired figure.
Chairman Kltchin's announcement
of th? committee'? action said:
"The committee no doubt will re
port a bill that will have the en
dorsement of the Treasury Depart
ment. However, the excess profits
rates will be increased In the lower
bracket?, while probably In the
higher brackets there will be little
If any Increase."
It le understood that among the
suggestions made to the committee
is one to compromise on the excess
profits rstea by fixing them at SO,
40 and 70 per cent instead of SO,
60 ad so per cent, as proposed by
the committee. The existing rates
run from 20 to 60 per cent only.
Internal Revenue Commissioner
Roper was before the committee with
a request for an appropriation of
S25.OOO.O00 to adminlater the new law.
Thl* I* S7.5OO.OO0 more than he I? al
lowed by the preient law. He ex
plained to the committee that If he
could increase his present force of
field agents and accountants from
9.000 to 12.000 he could guarantee an
Increased return 1n taxe? paid Into
the Treaaury of at least SI.000.000.000.
Thl? would be accomplished by ferret
ing out and compelling payment from
peraone and firms which now escape.
The committee, on motion of Mr.
Garner, of Texas, authorized the ap
pointment of a ?ub-commlttee te look
Into the tariff and see whether some
money could not be ral?ed by Increas
ing the Import duties. The committee
consists of Chairman Kltchln. Repre
sentative? Ralney and Dlxon. Demo
crats, and Representative? Fordney
and Moore. Republican?
Democratic member? ..f ?? ?ommlt
tee agree that fully ha'f ? Mill?n
dollar? could be raised by ? .Teasing
the tariff on non-competitive artlclea.
such as coffee, tea and c>coa. The
Republicans, however. Insist that If
the tariff rates are changed it ahould
be on a protective tariff.
