The development or the day at strike headquarters In the Washing ton Loan and Trust Building Included: Issuance of a statement by the gen eral committee declaring that labor conditions in Washington were, great ly to the disadvantage uf street car employes compared with other cities. The announcement that at a .meet ing tonight with the Central Labor Union arrangements "wrlll be made for a mass meeting for next Sunday to de termine future action by the strikers. Announcement that theTocal union strikers will meet at 10:30 a. m. and 8:30 p. nu tomorrow In Typographical Temple to take action of financial mat ters of the union. The Illness of C. A.

Garth Calderhead. financial secretary of the union, declared that regulations of numerous unions prohibited members t from patronixlsg street cars operated by strike breakers. The penalty for 'vio lation ranges from a line of $5 to expul sion from the union. Organizer McMorrow Issued a state ment declaring the amalgamated asso ciation Instructs all Its members to law fully conduct themselves and not at tempt the destruction of property. The' official statement signed by officials of the strikers' organization was as fol lows. ' "The situation today Is very good. Our men are standing firm, and we are becoming better organized every day. We now have our membership divided Into seven districts, to which the men report every day. These dis tricts are handled by two committee men, who direct the pickets In their work. "Meetings of the men are held each day at the respective places In the districts. There will be a. meeting this evening between our -committee and the executive committee of the Central Labor Union of Washington, for the purpose of arranging a dem onstration and public mass meeting to take place next Sunday at some point to be agreed upon by these committees. Eneonraglttg Stand. "Many citizens not connected" with the labor unions are (railing on us every day, encouraging us to stand united -and not to give' up our fight "and assuring us of their co-operation and support. "We note in the adver tisement that Mr. King, president of the Washington Railway and Elec tric Company. Is still claiming that we had demanded that all employes should become members of Our union. Mr. King well knows that that propo sition was withdrawn and that we offered Co accept on that question the same proposition that was granted the Capital Traction Company and accepted by their employes. "Bui we note, also, in .the King advertisement that he does not Inform the public that prior to the time of the formation ot onr union the com pany did have what they called a beneficial organization, to which they compelled every employe to join, and If they did not he lost his Job. tind was dismissed from the service of the Washington Railway and Electric Company. "Wo again repeat that the Issues In this struggle are clear. We are de manding the right of dealing as a body, of collective bargaining which the company Is opposing for financial reasons. "The condition of our employment up to last Sunday was that we had to serve an apprenticeship of ten years before we reached the maximum of 27 cents per hour. This Is prac tically the longest period and the low est wages prevailing In America, Ask Comparison. "We would ask you to compare the maximum pay after ten years pre vailing In Washington, which is 27 cents per hour, with that paid to the members of our association In some of the other cities, where the em ployes are organized and have estab lished the right of collective bargain ing. "Worcester, Mass., after three years In service, pays 34 cents per hour. ' "Detroit, Mich.. . after eighteen months In the service, pays 35 cents per hour. "East Uxerpool, Ohio, after three years In the service, pays 32 cents per hour. "Pittsburgh. Pa., after four years In .service pays 35 cents pr hour. "New Castle, Pa., after two years In service pays 33tJ cents per hour, "Youngstown, Ohio, after two years In service, pay 33 H cents per hour. "Troy, N.

"Cleveland, Ohio, afte r one year In service pays 34 cents per hour. In San Francisco, the men men on municipally owned and operated lines receive from the time they enter the service 34 cents per hour. "We could go on with cltr after cUy-'throughout the United States and Canada, showing this condition, which to our minds la absolute proof thst the real Issue, and reasons for Mr. King to oppose us Is his determina tion to destroy our organization and place us back In Individual positions, ind thereby rob us, of the rights of collective bargaining.

The German retirement around Bapaume under British pressure may presage aban donment of the entire line from Ba paume' to Bauralns, near Arras. "Viewing the fall of Bapaume as cer tain within the next few days, mili tary experts today pointed out that with the British occupying this im portant strategic point, the loop In the front to the north between that city and the German lines opposite Arras was likely to be untenable for the enemy. It would constitute a con stant Invitation for an encircling. flanking movement from British forces southward from Arras ami northward from Bapaume. England was vastly Interested to day In the explanation of Major Mo raht, printed In the Berliner Tage blatt, according to Holland dispatches. It elaborately explained the welV known strategical tactics of Von Hln denburg, as exhibited in previous cam paigns on the eastern front "In order to gain ample space for strategical movements? and was construed here as designed to prepare the German public for a German withdrawal on the western front on a huge" scale. Moraht declares the ground evacuated by the Germans Is poor terrain for flchtlngv Meanwhile the British forces are pushing steadily ahead, methodically strengthening their positions on the newly won ground.

CASTOR I A For Infants and Children In Use For Over 30 Year Always bears the fQDaweqf 7sZSaZ INTRIGUE MAKES JAPAN OUR FRIEND Result of Germany's- Efforts Now Clear to Lansing and Ambassador Sato. Japanese diplomacy, working In hearty cooperation with the American State Department, haa now effectively checked and exposed the efforts of the German government to create mutual distrust between Japan and the United States. The net result of Germany's efforts Is now clear to Secretary Lansing and Almaro Sato, the Japanese ambassador here. It has brought about a more friendly relationship between Toklo and Washington and a more candid under standing than probably has ever before existed. Summary of Results. The direct results of the Zlmmer mann note may be authoritatively summarized fs follows, so far as the relations between Japan and the United States are concerned! First It provided Secretary Lan sing with an Ideal opportunity most favorably to Impress Japanese public opinion by stating officially and with? out Qualification that he had every confidence In the friendship of Japan and scouted the Idea of Japan enter taining any suggestion or an alliance with Germany against the United States. Second ft provided the Toklo For eign Office 'and the Japanese .Premier wyh an excellent opportunity to as sure the American people that Ger many's Intrigue -would be Indignantly ejected by the Japanese government.- which' wpuldenter into no com pact with an enemy 'against a friendly power. Third It haa brought the United States and Japan Into such close re lationship that the' two countries virtually will occupy the role of allies In the Far East the moment hostili ties break out between Germay and the United States. Attention To Atlantic This 'friendly attitude of Japan will, It Is explained, enable President Wilson to give his whole attention to the Atlantic without the necessity of keeping an eye on the Pacific. In diplomatic circles It Is not be lieved that the persistent efforts of Berlin to make It appear that Japan sdner or later will be 'a. German ally Is based on belief In the German for eign office that there Is any real prospect- of this. At first there was undoubtedly a fixed Idea among Germans that they could count ion the assistance of Japan. But this Idea has !een dlssl- J pated and. the present German pro . natmnilA concerning JaDan Is simply being put out In the hope ot mislead ing public .opinion in Germany ana in the United States. - - - (NOTHING IN tETTING 'EM OUT All Coming In anjl Nothing Going Out on ML Pleasant Line.

Two bells started It again, when a sweet feminine voice from the center called out, "Walt. I want to get off here." One more bell, and then two again; a grunt from the conductor, and an other from the motorman. On the sixth occasion of this kind, the con ductor growled: "Vou'H have to go to the next corner."

TARIFF BOARD NAMED Prof. Taussig, Chairman, Former Congressmen Members. President Wilson has selected mem bers of the new tariff board as fol lows: Prof. Frank Taussig, who will act as chairman; W. S. Culbertson. Kansas; William Kent. California; David J. Lewis, Maryland; E. P. Coatlgan, Den ver; and Daniel Roper, of McCall, 8. C Taussig has held the chair of political economy at Harvard. Kent Is a progressive Democrat who Supported the President at the last elec tion. Culbertson has been In the legal de partment of the Federal Trade Commis sion and il considered an expert In tariff matters. Lewis was defeated by France for the United States Senate at the last Mary land election. Roper Is a Democrat, and previous to the last election he did active work on the national campaign committee under Postmaster General Burleson. Culbertson Is a Republican, Lewis a Democrat and Costlgan u Progres sive. President Wilson sent the nomina tions to the Senate today. The fact that two are Independents, two Demo crats, one Republican and one Pro gressive Republican gives the com mission a complexion regarded as very elastic on the tariff question. As a matter of fact, there are no out-and-out high tariff advocates, so called, on the board. SENATE TO TA'KE UP STMT CAR STRIKE May Summon King and Men's Leaders In Caseof Probe By Subcommittee.

One of these resulted from a horso falling Inln m Nllurav Yrnvatinn at Fifth and G streets and another occurred when a Maryland line car .took me wrong switch at Fourth street and Rhode Island avenue northeast. The F street. Mt. Pleasant, and Georgetown lines were held up more than half an hour by the fallen horse and the cars from Rlverdale, Hyatts vllle and Berwyn were tied up for more than an hour. Mere Than They Could Handle. Durmg the rush hours the lines of both railway companies had more pas segens than they could handle. Crowds of early morning riders wait ed on corners rather than walk In the unpleasant weather, but many braved the drizzle and walked to work. During the middle of the day the service on practically all the midclty lines seemed to be aa good as usual and enough cars, were run to give the Impression that no strike was on. . Despite the rainy weather, however, comparatively few passengers were seen on the cars of the Washington Railway Company, and car after car passed with only one or two passen gers. A number of minor tie-ups were quickly adjusted, but very few of the strike breaking motormen 'seemed able (o keep up the schedules on which the striking car men formerly operated. Runs from terminals in the residential district to the center of the city took anywhere from four to ten minutes longer than under the former schedules. Wrecking crews that worked late last night and early this morning picked up several hundred pounds of Junk which they claimed had been thrown Into the tracks by union men. The Junk Is being stored In a divlsiosj room of the railway company at Ninth and G streets. It consists of all manner of metal parts of cars, wire pickets, chains and other material. Three Hundred Trips. Supervisor of Tracks Jr. Jackson claimed he had made more than 300 trips In tho'last two days to points where Junk had been thrown Into rails and slots. A number of galvanized park pick ets thrown on the tracks near the Capitol grounds, he rUlmcd, had been taken from the flower bedx In the Capitol parkx. A river drag found In the tracks on the Anacostla bridge wai claimed to have been stolen from the pjllce boat. Service on the Eleventh street-Ana-costla line seemed to be less satis factory than that given yesterday. This was one of the best lines In point of service yesterday, but fewer cars. It was estimated, were running on this line than any other today. The Columbia line, running from the Treasury to Fifteenth nnd II streets northeast and Kenlluorth, was the same this morning as yexter day, and It was estimated at a little better than normal after the morn ing rush period was over.

This, I believe, would be going a great way toward bringing suc cess to the movement and securing reliable persona to cultivate such dif ferent pieces of vacant ground. This Is the procedure we are en deavoring to follow In the .Mld-Clty Citizens' Associations and on every lot we have donated to us, and we have the promise of several, we propose to erect a sign reading as follows: "Lot Loaned to the Mld-Clty Citi zens Association, Under Cultfvatlon by- Private Property. Please do not trepass. Use Street Sweepings. "A piece of ground that has never been planted will require so much fer tilizing that the cost would 'be rather high. I think that expense can be readily overcome by the use of street sweepings as fertilizer,, which .will Answer the purpose here aa Is done elsewhere. Thla fertilizer can easily be had,- aa the Commissioners are only too willing to co-operate In this movement. The sweepings ean 'be obtained readily by asking the street sweeping- department at the District building. "We expect to have our list of va cant and obtainable lots complete by this evening. We will then be In a position to assign them-to the first applicants, and will-agree to furnish seed for planting of the first piece of ground assigned for gardening pur poses. Work Has It Ileward. The entire product of each piece of ground cultivated will, of course, go to those planting and looking after the same. Judging by what is being done along this line In other cities, axid by what was accomplished here some few years ago. It Is safe to predict that those cultivating and planting not only vacant lots, but their- back yards, will be' amply re paid for their efforts and labor. Th malorltr of our residents have been devoting their time and at tention to the planting ana growing; of beautiful and attractive flowers and shrubberies.

Cultivate the vacant lot near your home and learn thrift, was the advice given by Miss Anne Beers .super vising principal ot the eighth divi sion, at a meeting of the Welghtman section of the Grant-Toner-Welght-man Parent-Teacher Association, at the Welghtman School yesterday. t Thrift and saving were stated to be entirely different. Actual money In the bank dqes not of necessity mean thrift. Miss Beers said. Persons without any money In bank were sometimes thriftier than those with large bank accounts, she asserted. Mrs. Giles Scott Rafter .president of the Mothers' Congress, said that In stead of the schools becoming social centers, the home should take that place. "The home," declared Mrs. Rafter, "should be the dearest spot on earth." Pupils of the school took part In a musical program. George Vermillion, an eighth grade pupil, sang a solo.
