Resolutions introduced at today's session of the convention of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and En ginemen here, included a plan for establishing, on a gigantic scale, co-operative stores for the bene fit of the railroad brotherhoods. As proposed to the convention today, the plan met with hearty approval, but was recommended back to the committee for the pur pose of broadening its scope, mak ing it to include all unions, if they cared to join the venture. The ultimate idea of the plan is not only to act as a distributor and eliminate the middleman, but also to obtain land for the production or produce.

Presentation of the peace declara tion proposals lead to no debate, al though issues of the league fight, had been discussed earlier in the day in connection w ith the insertion of mat -ter relating to it in the senate record.

Hold Admiral Responsible LONDON, June 23. -The sinking of the German fleet at Scapa Flow is re garded by most editorial writers as a fresh example of German faithlessness.

After having ppromised to meet the allied demands, the spirit of recalci trancy apparently prevailed for a time in the government of Herr Bauer, but this seemingly later was overcome and now everything points to the signing of the treaty at Versailles during the present week. An indication that the peace con gress will not defer much later than Thursday, a meeting with the .German plenipotentiaries for final action, is obtained from a report from Paris that the steamer George Washington, on which the president has traveled to and from France, has been ordered put in readiness to sail Thursday.

Whether Vil la was with the force could not be ascertained. Although there was a rumor to the effect that he was, this was disbelieved by the federals, who regard the first arrivals as the van guard of the main Villa army. Up to the time of the departure of the mes senger from the Chihuahua end of Oji tos Pass, no violence had been offered by the Villistas toward the Mormon colonies of that district. As far as could be ascertained during the first hours of their arrival, the Villistas had no intention of attempting reprisals, it was stated. The Villistas appealed to be very- tired and very badly demoralized by the crossing of the Americans, when they considered the battle against the federal garrison ol Ciudad Juarez all but won. Among the arrivals were several slightly wounded men, the message stated. General Francisco Martinez, in com mand of the federal forces in Agua Prieta, stated today he intended to dis patch troops to garrison El Tigre. He did not specify how many men would be sent or the exact date of their departure. He intended that for the present one garrison would be all that would be sent and he would re tain the remainder of his force intact in the border port. of thj treaty. .They declare congress has constitutional authority to de clare peace as a natural corollary ot" the authority to declare war. On the same ground, they say. the peace dele gation would not require the presi dent's signature, as do ordinary joint resolutions. These views, however, are expected to be challenged in the stormy deba e sure to be aroused by the proposal. The president's supporters in the trea ty f.ght are planning to oppose the peace declaration stubbornly, charac terizing it as a plan of league oppon ents to relieve themselves of blame for delaying ratification of the treaty. Senator talis resolution was re ferred to the foreign relations commit -tee, which probably will consider it at its regular meeting, Wednesday.
