CHIEFS THREATEN TO TAKE DISPUTE INTO DIN RANDS 18 PAGES PHOENIX, ARIZONA, TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 30, 1920 18 PAGES VOL. XXXL, NO. 21? Brotherhood Leaders Issue Warning They Will No Longer Try To Hold Men In Check; Demand Action Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ CHICAGO, Nov. 29 Representatives of the 16 recog.vlzed railway labor unions today asked the railway labor poara to rind some Plan throueh which differences between tho roads and their employes, other than wage disputes. couia be settled. The union heads de clared that unless some satisfactory plan "was forthcoming immediately. the men would take the settlement of such disputes in their own hands. During federal control of the rail rods, disputes which did not involve wage agreements were settled by boards of adjustment known as No. 1 2 and 3. These boards went out of xistence when the roads were returned to private ownership, and the employes want them re-established. The roads contended when the mat ter came up in recent wage hearings before tho board that the board had power only to deal with wage questions and that consequently It could not rule on other differences. ' The board took tho plea of the em ployes under advisement and an nouncement that if .lt decided to go Into the matter an early hearing would bo held. Appearing before the board with of ficials of 15 other recognized railway unions, Mr. Stone announced that, after being classed "for 17 years as an ultra consei ative, I have arrived at the point where I am through making ex cuses to the men." "There must be some plan found somewhere, some place, whereby we can get results for these men," Mr. Stone continued. "The locomotive en gineers have carried the load of re sponsibility, for years. We have tried to embody your board' decision of last July in agreements with 35S rail roads, but only four of tnese agree ments have been signed. The roads refuse to sign until the board passes on the question of rules." With Mr. Stone appeared officials of tho other employes' organizations, ask ing that the board hold a hearing to decide on tho creation of national ' boards of adjustment which would hear and pass on controversies other than wage disputes. The matter had been pending for some time, due to the fact that adjustment boards creted under United States government control have no Jurisdiction over disputes arising since the roads passed to private con trol. The board agreed to an immediate executive hearing on the request and 1f It decided to comply, an early hear ing will he set. A motion passed unanimously by the executive committee of the 16 em ployes' organizations, was read by E. H. Fitzgerald of the Brotherhood of Railway and Steamship Clerks, Ex press and Station Employes. The mo tion resolved to submit an ex-patre statement of disputes with railroads on the matter of creation of national boards of adjustment and asked for an Immediate hearing. Mr. Fitzgerald told the board that the situation was urgent. W. R. Lee, president of the Brother hood of Railway Trainmen, explained that the request concerned national boards which could hear and pass on controversies;. "Action to change tho present situa tion Is necessary' declared Mr. Lee. ''I do not refer to your Jurisdiction or authority. I believe the majority of controversies is not concerned with your decision of last July and the oper ating officers feel that they are not bound by that decision. "The chief executives of the men have told them they must .adhere to the railway act. that they must submit er.v (ontroverav to the board before taking a strike vote or interfering with traffic. But if the operating officers are not bound, there is nothing left to do but go back to the old method. That we do not want to do if we can help it." Speaking for the Brotherhood of Railwny Conductors, L. E. Shepherd, prerident, told the board that the re quest concerned a board auxiliary to the labor board, to which can be re ferred questions not involving wages, with a view to lightening and expedit ing the present board's labor. --o Lithuanians Hold Two Women Relief : Workers in Kovna Republican A.

Two lorry loads of recruits in training for the black and tans auxiliary police were ambushed last night by from 80 to 100 men near Kilmichael and 15 of them were killed. The bodies were brought here this evening. Already reprisals have begun and reports from the village of Johnstown, between Macroom and Dunmanway. state that scarcely a house there is undamaged and that most of the shops in the district have been set afire. The residents are fleeing from the place in terror. Hero shops have been closed and all business Is suspended. Large parties of auxiliaries bearing rifles and revolvers are patrolling the tor n and the people are apprehensive that the auxiliaries will take vengeance. Tho cadets, under District Inspector Crake, were patrolling in two lor ries when they were ambushed. The auxiliary cadets arc recruits in training for the "black and tan'' auxiliary police. Greenwood Reports Murders LONDON, Nov. 29. Dispatches relating to the killing of 15 auxiliary police cadets near Kilmichael were read in the house of commons by Sir Hamar Greenwood, chief secretary of Ireland, during the Irish debate today. The party which ambushed the cadets had been disarmed and brutally murdered; their bodies were rifled of all money and valuables and even clothing was taken from the corpses. Arms and ammunition also were taken and the lorries burned. Tho secretary thought that, with 15 former officers of the late war thus lying dead, the house would not wish to continue the discussion. He termed the affair a challenge' to parliament and civilization. The subject then was dropped. Auditor Testifies Ten Per lent Ot Seven Million Dollar Repair Bill of Shipping Board W as urai INITIATES SUIT FOR SUM SAID DUE UNDER TRANSPORTATION ACT Republican A. P. Leased Wire PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 29. Radi calism in labor circles, unrestricted Immigration and the movement in this country for support of Irish indepen dence were denounced today by Bishop Adna Wright Leonard of San Fran cisco in an address before a meeting of Methodist ministers. Immigration, he said, should be re stricted to those who were calculated to uphold our constitution. "While the United States has always taken a liberal attitude toward the man who desired to come to" this country to make common cause with the people and advance the interests of the na tlon," he declared, "it was never in tended as a refuge for people with ideas destructive of the people of Americanism.' Speaking of bolshevlsra. he said It was now threatening organized labor, "I am the friend of the laboring men and believe that wages are superior in their claim to interest and profit," he said. "But there Is no denying the fact that friends of labor are being alienated in large numbers by the at titude that has been taken during the last two or three years, and more re cently in support of certain radical movements that are not other than bolshevistic. I have had in different states In this nation prominent local leaders in the labor groups tell me that radicalism within their own organiza tion Is becoming a great menace to the Interests of working men." Bishop Leonard characterized the movement in this country in support of Irish indfoendence as un-American and aimed at the destruction of the friendship between America and Great Britain. "But." he added, 'whatever have been the mistakes of England In the past and whatever be her attitude now on this question that is internal and dem ocratic, the friendship of those two Anglo-Saxon nations must abide for ever in order to safeguard human free dom and to protect the Christian civi lization of the world." o German President Wires Recognition to Huerta Regime Republican A.

Adams, also an oste opathist, who committed suicide. At his trial evidence was given that she had admitted to him improper rela tions with Dr. Harris. Upon learning of her death, Atwood went to Harris' apartment and shot him five times. The parole is recom mended on the eround that the court ship of Dr. Adams and Atwood had been "exceptionally idealistic" and that Atwood killed Harris in a fit of remorseless brooding." o One Democratic Representative; 53 Republicans Republican A.

Man damus proceedings against the secre tary of the treasury were instituted today in the. District of Columbia su preme court by the Grand Trunk Western Railway company to require payment of an interstate commerce commission certificate calling for $500,000 as 'due the road under the guaranty provision of the Transporta lion act. justice Mccoy Issued an order returnable December 7. request ing Secretary Houston to show cause why the writ should not be granted While the Grand Trunk company is the only petitioner in the case, ap proximately $400,000,000 claimed by tne railroads is involved In the litlga tion, according to a statement issued tonight by the Association of Railway Executives. "This proceeding grew out of the opinion rendered October 30 by the comptroller of the treasury," the state ment said, "based upon certain cer tificates presented by the interstate comnierce commission to the treasury department in favor of the Grand Trunk Western Railway company and the Detroit, Grand Haven and Mil waukee road, in which opinion the comptroller of the treasury held that partial payments could not be made by the secretary of the treasury to a carrier m advance of final settle ment,. ......... "The comptroller held that the In terstate commerce commission was empowered to issue only one certifi cate to each carrier, which certificate must be for the full amount of the final settlement. While in this pro ceeding the Grand Trunk Railway company is the only petitioner, yet tho result of the decision rendered in this case wil involve the payment of ap proximately $400,000,000 now due to railroads of this country under the guaranty provisions of the transporta tion act. "This proceeding is a test case de signed and necessary to settle what the law Is In respect to that authority and obligation of the treasury depart ment to make partial payments under the guaranty when amounts are cer tified by the interstate commerce commission as certainly and in all event due, without waiting, before making any payment for the result of final accounting which cannot be ac complished for a very considerable time." Secretary Houston said today that no course was left the treasury but to follow the dicision of the comptroller unless a contrary decision should be rendered by the courts. The comp troller's rulings, he said, are binding on the treasury and at present there is no alternative." o Mandate Mission Members Will be Chosen on Merit Republican A. P. Leased Wire GENEVA, Nov. 29 Removel of the mandates' commission as far as pos sible from governmental influence was the task undertaken by the council of the league of nations today. It was de cided that all members of this com mission shall be appointed by the coun cil on personal merits and competency and that they shall not occupy any po sition involving dependency upon their government. The mandates question occupied al most the entire session and necessarily postponed the election of a successor to Sir Reginald Tower as high com missioner at Danzig. M. Viviano rep resented France instead of B. Baur- geoise, who was obliged to make a trip to Paris, and Signor Tittoni also was replaced, as his return to Rome for a few days was imperative. The French government will be in vited to arrange for the transportation and sustenance of the military expe dition to Vilna, The mandate -commission will in clude one member named by the inter national organization who will attend all the meetings In an advisory ca pacity only when questions of interest to labor are discussed. Mandatories will be required to submit annual re ports through duly authorized repre sentatives setting forth the situation in territory under their jurisdiction. The reports will be examined by the man dates commission which will decide what points therein shall be called to the attention of the council. The man dates commission will sit in Geneva. The sub-committee on blockades to day passed a resolution proposed by Lord Robert Cecil delegate for South Africa, that the council be asked to name an international commission on blockades whose duty it shall be to re port to the assembly the measures it finds necessary to put an economic blockade into effect. This is regarded as quite likely to put off a definite so lution of the blockade question until the next meeting of the assembly. o WALSH INVESTIGATING COMMITTEE HEARS MORE EVIDENCE OF RECKLESS WASTE OF TAXPAYERS' MONEY; BOL LING ON STAND TODAY.

Garland, who was a- wealthy clubman and yachtsman of Boston, to day made, a formal statement of his reasons for rejecting the money. His statement, he said, was duo to the fact that the many reports of his failure to accept the legacy had failed properly tc present his position. "I refuse to accept the money be cause it is not mine," Garland said. "A system which starves thousands while hundreds are stuffed condemns itself, A system which leaves a eick woman helpless and offers its service to a healthy man, condemns Itself. It is such a system that offers me a mil lion dollars. 'It is blind to the simplest truth the money. It is the man who gives food to the hungry who does good, not the dollars given in exchange for the food. I would be happy to be the man if I had the food to give but I cannot lend myself to handling the money that is not mine even though the good that might bo done is possibly great.'' Many people have written to tell him what could be done with the money, he said. "They seem almost possessed to point out the power thai I have in my hands but it is the most pitiful thing they could point to. You cannot serve God and Mammon! So many people are ready to serve the dollar, means so many less to serve God. The.'-e are great opportunities to do good but they are in men's hearts, not in my cheek book.

F. Bledsoe of the United States Dis trict court to the United States attor ney, J. Robert O'Conner, made public by the judge today. The judge, who had under consideration a motion of the defendants to dismiss the action, suggested the government might amend the complaint In making public the letter the judge said he had been in formed "that the United States will take advantage of the opportunity ac corded to it. The letter, dated Nov. 24, opened with the statement: "In the matter of the suit of the United States government against the California Associated Raisin company and others, my conclusion is that the case sought to be prosecuted by the government against the defendants possesses sufficient basis in fact, per haps, but within the rules of pleading which I feel constrained to follow, is not adequately pleaded in the bill here." After referring to decisions quoted in Rrgument, the judge said he was "im pressed with the thought that what ever else may have been done by these defendants in the matter of securing a monopoly of the manufacture of raisins "in California, unless the dofend- Republlcan A. P. Leased Wire NEW YORK, Nov. 29. Testimony that 10 per cent of the $7,000,000 ship ping board repair bills in the South Atlantic district was "graft" was given here today to the Walsh congressional committee examining into shipping; board affairs. The allegation was made by Charles Banzahf, a traveling auditor of the board out of New York. It was contained in a letter written by the witness to the general comp troller of the board last July, read to. day by Chairman Walsh and identi fied by the witness. Means by which the. alleged '"graft" was made possible, the witness testi fied, included lack of inspection, fail ure to check repair work, overcharges for materials and labor and unneces sary repairs. He cited an instance of a repair engineer who, he said, had sat in a pilot house and approved repair tills amounting to "thousands of dol lars" without ever looking at the work. He declared inspectors had beea told that "costs" were none of their busi ness and that there was a spirit of make, rather than cut down, repair work. German Ships Costly Two of the former German ships were brought into the inquiry for the first time by Banzahf. He asserted he had been instructed to check up bills for the re-conditioning of the former German liner Hamburg, now the New Rochelle. This ship was sold on a charter purchase contract to the Bal tic Steamship corporation. The sale price, he understood, was approxi mately $985,000 and the shipping board had advanced for the re-conditioning of the ship about $400,000. The bill of npairs for this ship, he added, was about $1,500,000, which an audit of ac counts reduced approximately $337,000, The discrepancy between the. sale prica of the ship and tho cost of re-con-dltioning. he said he could not explain without the contract of sale, which he did not have with him. Te contract for the re-conditioning. he said, was awarded to the Morgan Engineering company of Jersey City. He also testified the steamer Mercury, formerly the Barboes, was taken to the same yard for re-conditioning, but after $175,000 had been expended work was stopped because of lack of funds. Charoe Labor Not Employed Up to six or seven' months ago. he continued, repair work in New York yards, generally speaking, showed many Irregularities including charging of hundreds of hours that were not rendered, excesses of class labor and excesses in materials. Wooden ship construction promul gated by the Emergency Fleet corpora tion in the early days of its organiza tion were gone into by Eads Johnson, who was district officer of the fleet. Johnson generally condemned the wooden ship idea and said he resigned because he could not conform to it. In describing an experience with a southern contractor who wanted to build such ships, Johnson said tho idea seemed to be "build one million wooden ships that would take one million Ger man torpedoes to sink." Sales of surplus material now aver aging about $1,000,000 monthly. G. D. Watt, manager of the eastern division of the sales and warehouse stion. testified. The payroll of the division is about $200,000 a year. Watt said that if the present ratio of sales continued, it would require about 80 months to close out the prop erty. It was said by members of the com mittee that R. W. Boiling, Lester Sis ler, former secretary, and Alonzo Tweedale, now general comptroller of the shipping board, would appear be fore the committee tomorrow.

His brother Charles said today that he understood Hamilton also was considering refusal to take his share when he became of age. Their ideas on the subject were somewhat similar, he said, although the influences of education and environ ment were not identical. Garland indicated that his refusal to take the money was not based on any question attached to the origin of the Garland fortune, saying lie did not know from what source it was de rived, but ho believed it cyme iluun i from his grandfather.
