Rules Divide White House Conference
Disagreement on Mode
of Voting Decisions
Causes Rift.
Washington, Oct. 7.—Disagreement
over rules proposed for the governing of
ihe industrial conference called by Presi
dent Wilson resulted in the conference
adjourning eventually until tomorrow.
Franklin K. Lane, secretary of the in
ferior, had been elected permanent chair
As proposed' by committee, the rules
provided that all conclusions and deci
sions must be arrived at Dy unanimous
vote of the three groups representing
capital, labor and the public, while the
decision of each individual group would
be by a majority of the members of that
group. The rule was attacked by John
Spargo of New York, a delegate rep
resenting the public.
Might As Well Quit ,Says Spargu.
Mr. Spargo declared the conference
might as well adjourn if the provision
of the rules was adopted whereby a ina
jority vote of any group was necessary
tiefore a member of the group could in
troduce any subject for discussion. Such
a rule, he asserted, hindered especially
the public group, which was not com
posed of delegates representing a homo
geneous interest, like the labor group,
but contained men and women of diverse
activities. He objected particularly be
cause. he said, there was no provision for
minority expression.
Thomas L. Chadbourne, of New lork.
replying for the committee, declared the
provision was believed necessary to
obtain efective action instead of debate.
Each Group to Consider Rules.
On motion of Frederick P. Fish, of
the employers group, the conference ad
journed to allow each group to consider
Ihe rules separately.
Other provisions of the rules reported
by the committee were that the meetings
be open to the public and the press and
that there be two daily sessions, from
a. m. to 12:30 p. m.. and from
2:30 p. m. to 5:30 p. m. It was expressly
stated that there should be no meetings
wn Sunday, indicating that the conference
:vas expected to continue two weeks or
The rules were presented by W. p.
Hahon, of the labor delegation, chair
man of the rules committee.
Committee to Sit on Resolutions.
A committee of 15 was named to re
commend for or against all resolutions
The employers group was the only one
ready, lmder the rules, with any busi
ness, Frederick P. Fish, of Boston, of
fering a resolution, declaring the need of
the industrial situation was "increased
production, adequate compensation for
I services and just return on capital." and
" that each delegate should be guided in
his actions by the good of the country as
a whole, rather than by the interests of
his particular group.
Motion then was made to adjourn,
which evoked quick protest from dele
gates who have been demanding strenu
ous action from the conference.
Business First Day Barred.
(»avin McN'abe. San Francisco, a rep
resentative of the public, said he would
offer another resolution to give the con
ference something to do, but. John Spar
go made a point of order that the res
olution had not been presented to the
group first, and Mr. McNabe was forced
to desist. It then was suggested that
the committee of 15 hold a meeting and
the groups also get together, as a means
of cxpeditirg business, but this was
deemed unwise, as the committee mem
bers would be absent from the group
meetings and besides the conference had
no business before it. except perfunc
tory election of its chairman.
After much discussion about the ruj.es,
it was decided to adjourn to meet at 0:30
tomorrow, when each goup is expected to
have something to offer for considera

Washington, Oct. 7.—Presentation of

Brandegee, republican, Connecticut, said

The communications, he said, showed
how the league was spending money in
an effort to force ratification of the
peace treaty without amendment.
A number of the telegrams asked that
the recipient telegraph his senator and
demand ratification "in a positive and
conclusive manner."

Sheriff and Posse.
Wiertorv W. Va., Oct. 7.—Swooping
down on alleged I. W. W. headquarters in
an old barn on the Hancock county road,
a quarter of a mile south of here, today.
Sheriff Armour Cooner and a squad of
50 deputies arrested a number of the
supposed ringleaders and confiscated a
large quantity of literature, books and
papers of the organization, including a
membership roll.
The sheriff then arrested ISO men
whose names were on the membership
roll, marched them to the public square,
forced them to kneel and kiss the Ameri

After this 180 of the men were re
leased and driven out of town, while the
other six were taken to the New Cum

by the federal authorities.
The coup was carried out without se

Chicago, Oct. 7.-—Handling the throttle j
t'L the locomotive of his special train
-Äis a diversion for King Albert of the ;
Belgians, today, as he sped across Ohio, Î
Indiana and a corner of Illinois, passing :
around the main part of Chicago tonight.
The king, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke
of Brabant were traveling unofficially !
on the way to the Pacific coast.
Much of the time. Albert wore a flan- j
ne! army shirt and a cap and few of the j
townsfolk« recognized him as his train !
stopped or slowed at stations along the :
route at many of which school children,
cheering or bringing flowers were o:i j

At Wauseon. Ohio, he took the throttle i
from the grimy pilot, who stood close by j
for an emergency, but his majesty needed
no assistance, for he showed a thorough -
knowledge of engineering. He ran tr.c
heavy train without a polt for ten miles :
and then returned to bis car to wash up
for dinner.
At Toledo, the royal party was driven
from the statiou to the museum of art, .
where there was an address of welcome
by Mayor Cornell Schreiber, a brief talk '
by Albert, and a few words of greeting
to his townsmen by I'resident Brand '

Cincinnaai, Oct. 7.—Cincinnati
took the game in the first half
of a ten-inning contest today,
then Chicago took it for one
run more in the latter half,
and the task of shinning up the
Redlands park staff and mea
suring it for the championship
bunting of 1919 was given a
set-back. In other words, Chi
cago refused at the critical mo
ment to surrender the world's
baseball championship series, and
the matter now rests four games
to two in favor of the Reds,
who, had they won today, would
have taken the pennant.
Cincinnati looked like a cer
tain winner in the third and
fourth rounds, when four Red
legs crossed the plate. In the
fifth, however, the Sox turned
two passes and a single into a
tally, and in the sixth, two dou
bles and two singles were the
major factors in the three run.«
which tied the score.
To Buck Weaver, sterling
third baseman, who wielded a
mighty stick, fell the distinction
of recording the winning run in
the tenth. He was the first man
up and doubled to center, his
second two-sacker of the game.
Ruether Forded Oiit.
The partisan crowd became bushed and
then began to chant encouragement tr.
Ring, who had displaced Ruether as
pitcher for the Reds.

nothing, singled and Weaver scored.
In the tenth the Reds went out in
one, two, three order, and the day closed
with the series standing four victories
for Cincinnati and two for Chicago.
.Gleason Gives Team Lecture.
The Cincinnati team entered the field
confident that they had so drubbed the
visitors that the last ounce of fight had
departed from them. The latter, how
ever. had been hauled over the coals 'n
unmistakable fashion by Manager Glea
son during the forenoon, and they came
on the field looking desperate rather than
"Dutch" Ruether, who became a local
idol by his great pitching and perfect
batting in the first game of the series,
in which Chicago was humiliated 0 to 1,
was trotted out to deliver the coup de
grace to the American leaguers. The
crowd gave him a rousing welcome. Al
though he held his adversaries hitless
during the first three innings, experts
noted that the Sox were slugging him
savagely into the outfield or down the
foul line.
Sox's Winner in Box Again.
There were none out in the sixth when
Manager Moran. more in sorrow than
anger, sent Ruether t» the bench and

the Reds to a 2 to 0 victory at Chicago,
