London, Sept. 28. There is no end
of -war in sight. Any step at this
time by United States, Vatican or any
other neutral in direction of peace
would be construed by England as
an unneutral, prq-German move.
These statements are on no less
authority than that of British man
of hour, Rt Hon, David Lloyd
George, secretary of state for war.
Britain has only begun to fight;
the British empire has invested thou
sands of its best lives to purchase fu
ture immunity for civilization; this
investment is too great to be thrown
away," was the Welsh statesman's
size up of the situation.
"More than at any time since the
beginning of war there is evidenced
throughout England a popular suspi
cion toward America, a' suspicion
that did not exist a year ago. This
feeling appears directly attributable
to notion generally entertained by
man ori streets that Pres. Wilson
might be induced to butt in for pur
pose of stopping European war. A
similar suspicion of Spain and Vati
can is also manifest"
How to make a big downtown trust
company leak inside confidential in
formation was brought out "before
Judge Landis yesterday. A. L. Web
er, lawyer, testified he sent a circular
to all creditors of busted Paisley
banks. He .told creditors he could
help them get 100 cents on the dol
lar. What bothered Judge Landis
was how Weber got the names of the
creditors. The list is supposed to be
secret. Robert C. Goldbeck, custo
dian for Central Trust Co. in Pais
ley bankruptcy, testified David Jet
zinger, attorney Central Trust Co.,
directed him to hand over list of cred
itors to Weber, Jetzinger admitted,
under quiz of Landis, that he had
pulled this peculiar stuff. So Landis
ousted Jetzinger from the case. Court
ordered him to bring in names of
lawyers who work a double-cross be
tween banks, depositors and credit
ors in bankruptcy proceedings.
New York, Sept 28. Second day
of what was to have been a general
strike of union workers in New York
revealed no change early today in
situation, marked yesterday by prac
tically complete failure of men and
women to whom the call was direct
ed to respond.
Best estimates showed that a bare
handful of workers went out on sym
pathetic strike. Larger unions have
contracts with employers and hesi
tate to break them.
Interest today centered in possibil-
ity that subway and elevated'motor-
men, who have heretofore refused to
join the traction strike, might be
called put A. B. Gridley, organizer
of Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers, with which some motormen
are affiliated, attacked leaders of
street car, union and declared officials
of Jnterboro company would be
called to account for their refusal to
treat with representatives of broth
erhood. v
Unions with membership of 164,
000 were voting on question of re
sponding td sympathetic strike call
today. Leaders still claimed major
ity of, these would go out
They also claimed more than 150,
000 workers walked out yesterday,
but admitted most of these were
Jewish workers who would have re
mained away from work anyhow because-
of their holiday.
