MOSES BREAKS WITH LEADERS ONTARIFFBILL i Gives Notice He Will Fight Extension of Dye Embargo. FORDNEY UPHOLDS VALUATION IDEA Says Public Favors Plan For Assessing Duties On Imports. Republican leaders hare failed to line up their full party strength in the Senate in support ot the emergency tariff bill. Senator Moses, of Vew Hampshire. Republican, who fought the bill in the last session, made this plain yesterday when he served notice in the Senate that before the debate is closed he will make a speech against it. He said he was especially opposed to the provision of the bill which extends the embargo and license control over imports of dyes now exercised by the War Trade Board. Senator Moses made his position clear after Senator Harrison, of Mississippi. Democrat, had read to the Senate a quotation from an address by the New Hampshire Senator attacking the measure during the last session. Questions asked by Senator Stoses during yesterday's debate had given Senator Harrison the impression that the former had changed his position. His Poaltlaa I'aehaagvd. "I suppose the Senator is seeking to wring from me an admission that T have recanted." said Senator Moses, after Senator Harrison had read from bis speech. **I have no Intention of changing my position, and before this debate is closed I shall express my views again in a few well-chosen words." "Every amendment added to the bill has tended to increase still higher the cost of living." said Senator Harrison. "Nothing has been added which relieves the burden of the people. "All agree that so far as the anti-dumping provisions are concerned It will increase the cost of commodities. The worst part of it is that It does not spply only to agricultural commodities, but to everything. So the bill Is worse than It was before. Whatever excuse there may have been for voting for the bill before, there Is none now. "If this anti-dumping provision prevails It may. if circumstances arise, take articles from the free list and Impose a tax upon them, thus burdening the farmer that much more." Saya Ptblle Approve*. Representative Fordney. of Michigan. chairman of the House Ways and Mean* Committee, issued the following statement: '"The proposal to adopt American valuations has met with great and growing approval as the full significance of the change Ik being better anderstood. The necessity for the change is becoming more and more apparent. The collection of Information as the true wholesale market values in all the countries of the world has shown Itself In the past to t?e extremely difficult and recently practically Impossible. Favor* Stability. "We must have stability and certainty In our method of collections of revenues if the country is to meet the heavy expenditures which now face it. While n. the past. aK a prosperous natiou without heavy tax burdens, we could or raiher did overlook this necessity of certainty in our revenue collections, we now realise that the full revenue from this source must be collected and not left in the jiands of the foreign manufacturers, or by permitting undervaluations to widen the profit of his adnata, the importers in this country. "The extraordinary conditions abroad have accentuated beyond measure the necessity of protecting the American working man and killed artisans <n his employment which can only be done by two things: (I) So adjusting the tariff that It makes up the difference between low standards of wages and living of the foreigner and the American standard which we must preserve at all costs.

"Devising a means whereby American industry will be protected against the persistent undervaluations of the past, so the revenue Congress determines upon will be readily collected and the degree of protection it deems necessary to give American Institutions will be real rather than fictitious. Thl? can only be accomplished by baaing the rate properly readjust, ed upon the American wholesale value. "A hearing was granted last Tuesday at which both sides of the question were discussed by representative busifiess men and which tended greatly to clear the atmosphere." "An extraordinary fact developed during the hearing and that was that the concentrated opposition which had centered in the activities of a great commercial organization was discovered to be without1 foundation in fact. The members of the organisation which had been 1 Invited by the Ways and Means Committee to express its opinion had never been consulted.

Miss Butterworth disappeared on ' Tuesday night. Recovery of the ; body, with grappling hooks, followed the finding of her hat in the water that fills the pit. Medical Examiner Whitney said an examination revealed nothing that would be contrary to a suicide theory. Senator Redfield Proctor, brother of Miss Butterworth's employer, was in charge of the search at the quarry. It is believed that after leaving ! her boarding house, the Boston uni| versity graduate walked two miles j over the country road, climbed a I fence and then plunged to her death i in the abandoned quarry shaft.

SHIPPING Sailors Accept Six Out of Seven Issues in Controversy. NORFOLK. Va., May 7.?A strong guard tonight/-was thrown around the American steamer Willlmatic, lying: partly sunk at her pier at Newport .News, alleged to he the work of striking seamen. The vessel was discovered with twenty-two feet of water in her hold today. Agents of the steamship company operating the ship declared that the seacocks had been opened, and the strikers were accused of attempting to scuttle the vessel. This charge was indignantly denied by John Nelson, president of the Marine Union of Newport News, and other officials of the seamen's organization. Tngmen to Strike. Simultaneous with this incident, it was learned tonight that engineers on every tug boat in the harbors of Norfolk and-Newport News will quit work tomorrow in sympathy with the marine engineers, who have been on strike for the past week. About 100 tugs operate here and in most cases three engineers are employed on each vessel. The Willimantic was to load 8,000 tons of coal for London and had 6,000 tons on board when she was discovered sinking, most of the coal being ruined by the water. Arrests la Brooklyn. NEW YORK, May 7.?The strike of marine workers continued here tonight with violence threatening along the water front. Three arrests were made today in Brooklyn where pier workers said they were threatened by striking firemen. Police said the prisoners: were armed with clubs. To guard against repetitions of interference with ship workers, police guards were increased and shipping companies put more watchmen on duty. Strikers will hold a ma*s meeting here tomorrow afternoon to vote on what is reported to be the sole remaining point of difference between them and the American Steamship Owners' Association. The meeting was called after a communication had been received at headquarters of the International Seamen's Union from T. B. Healy. one of their representatives in Washington, transmitting what he described as "the final offer" of the owners' association and the United States Shipping Board. The telegram said that six of the seven points offered had been accepted by the union delegates. The seventh was said to be: Establishment of a bonus plan In connection with the proposed 15 per cent wage reduction. As the answer to all propositions wss said to have been promised by 10 o'clock Monday morning, tomorrow's mass meeting was called Immediately. The other six points, said to have been accepted by the union, were: Reinstatement of all strikers: retention of the basic eight-hour day; overtime to be paid pro rata on the basis of the eight-hour day; retention of the 1920 ship tonnage classification; one hour overtime daily for the most efficient engineers; elimination of the proposed "open shop" principle. Striking seamen and marine engineers who stopped work one week ago. last night were being polled by leaders in the Atlantic ports on the newest proposals of Secretary of Labor Davis to end the strike. Under the proposal, which is a compromise between the demands of the men and the position of the ship owners, the workers would consent to a 15 per cent decrease and receive an eight-hour day, while the employers would abandon their demand for an open shop. The ships then would continue to operate under the present three-watch or eight-hour-day system. The result of the poll of the port strike leaders will be transmitted to Secretary Davis tomorrow. Chairman Healey, of the Atlantic Coast division of the strikers, described the situation as "much worse." however, after an hour's conference with Secretary of Commerce Hoover. y" 'y Z5h& THeralft TODAY CONSISTS OP EIGHT (8) SECTIONS 1?Fint News Section, including Washington and Telegraph, Sport and Automotive News, Financial and Markets. 2?Classified Ads, Real Estate and Fraternal News. 3?Theaters and Motion Picture*. 4?Society, Club Affairs and Special Articles. 5?Special Features and Fiction Section. 6?Weekly Review of World Events. 7?Comic Supplement of four pages, in full color. 8?The Herald Motion-Play Magazine, eight pages in rotogravure. ?'J British Labor I Returning to * * Spreading Unrest Thi With Forces of Re Opposed, I B J SIR PHILIP GIBBS.

That news has reached the United States day by. day. but It is perhaps unlikely that the meaning of this struggle has been clearly explained. Something is happening in England bigger than the "down tools" ac| tlon by the miners, though that has been serious enough.

Labor Changed by War. Let me examine first the psychology of tho laboring men and women. They were profoundly changed by the five years of war conditlona For the first time In j their lives they enjoyed some little j margin of wealth and luxury. The j government needed labor desperate- j ly and was willing to pay any, wages demanded by workers. They , demanded more and more, striking j and winning always when they : learned their value and power. | The government yielded time and again to keep them good-tempered and industrious while the war lasted. The workers acquired new tastes, dressed better, and were lifted out of the squalor of their old slums; spent their fine wages prodigally and saved not a penny for a rainy day. ' Long after the war the government continued to control the Industries, and subsidies out of the 1 public money were used to sustain | wages while the cost of living stayed high. Challenge Confronts Miners. It was bound to stop, as was shown by brutal figures, but wis- | dom would have used the time since the armistice to climb down grad- j ually with full warning and ex- j planatlon Instead of Issuing a sud den and staggering challenge. That ' has now happened to the miners, as it soon will happen to other Industries, and not only the? miners but all labor in the RritlsH Isles must he confronted with drastic wage cuts. It is no spirit of revolution which is arousing their resistance. There are revolutionary groups active in i many industries, but so far without j much of a following and opposed to j I the Instincts of the vast majority, j Not a desire for revolution, but or- 1 dinary psychological laws after the ' mental advantage of the war are I the cause of the workers* refusal to accept lower wage scales. Revolt Agnlnat Old Conditions. They revolt against the idea of! returning to prewar conditions of life, which for millions of them meant foul slums, rags and tatters, hare subsistence on the edge of psuperdom. \ The home-coming soldiers, now again in the Tanks of labor, learned a larger life in the war. They lived out of doors under the great sky. They had leisure for f ntertainment outside the breast lines of trenches. They looked forward to a life after the war. if they i j had the luck to live, as a good reI ward for gallant service. And un> ! COXTIXriP OlTpiG* TWKLV*.
