EXPECT MEETING TO SMOOTH
GERMAN-U. S. TENSION
Washington, Sept 13. German
American tension expected to . be
largely smoothed out by appoint
ment German Ambassador Bern
storff had today with Sec'y Lansing.
Bernstorff was here on two-fold
mission development of Arabic ne
gotiations and explanation of his own
and t his military aide's, Capt Von
Papen, connecutioh with the James
F. J. Archibald incident
Because of the wide discretionary
powers given him to settle submarine
warfare issue, presentation of new
proposals was thought probable.
State department officials awaited
word from Ambassador Penfield re
garding American request for Aus
trian Ambassador Dumba's recall.
They would not guess what action
would be taken if Austria failed to
appoint successor to Dumba, but it
was doubted if American Ambassador
Penfield would be recalled unless
dual monarchy should leave post
here vacant for an unreasonable
length of time.
Foreign mails were expected to
bring early in the week two sets of
important documents further affi
davits regarding Allan liner Hesper
ian's destruction and copies of papers
taken from Capt Archibald.
Officials intimated that the Hes
perian case was far from settled and
may yet play in important part in

SEAMAN KICKS ON TREATMENT
ON LAKE STEAMER
Salt pork with grease dressing to
eat and hard boards to sleep upon.
That was the "board and lodging"
that Chas. Smith says accompanied
his job as able seaman on the steam
ship Virginia of the Goodrich line.
And Smith says he only got half the
pay that was promised him.
"When I was hired," said Smith,
"the agent said I would get a dollar
a day, good meals and a soft bunk.
I was assigned to the Virginia and
put to trucking fruit and freight
"Our meals were mostly grease in
which some rank food had been dip
ped by way of flavoring. Night came
and our 'bunk' proved to be the deck
floor without even a blanket
"Work was so hard that I was so
stiff and sore I nearly cried in pain.
When I went to collect my pay and
quit, I was given 50 cents a day.
When I kicked for the promised dol
lar a day the officer hit me in the
face and tore my coat half off my
back. All I got was 50 cents a day."
