PORTLAND. Ore., Sept 15.
President Wilson arrived in Port
land today with Ms later policy ful
ly determined. He apent all of yes
terday afternoon secluded ia hia
apartment 'in the hotel in, Seattle.
All of that time he spent utilizing
the famous little tpyewriter upon
which he has writte&all of his war
messages to Congress. As. a result,
it is expected today that the invita
tions to attend vthe coming labor con
gress in Washington will be forth
coming the present week.
Position Peculiar.
Not a single word regardlngscsteats
will be forthcoming until the Presi
dent's message is made public. How
ever, it Is possible to Estate that the
President plans to make the leaders
of the labor movement Ja the UaMed
States, thejCapltallsts whose aasaee
talk wheavsnoney Is mentioned, sad
the farmers who hold the balance ,af
power in the- UnlWfl States, gat -out
into the" open and ay what.4b6r.aff
willing-to donrtnjg-tha'assaTrjar1"
restore the economic stability of the-
world and the Ualtea-fcSUctes -r -"-.
The position of the President fs
peculiar. The radicals In the labor
movement have claimed that he Used
up with them as a result of speeches
In Omaha, Sioux Falls and Spokane.
Sasse Claim by Capitalists.
The radicals in the ranks of capi
tal have claimed that he lined up with
them In his address In Seattle, when
he declared he would never consent
to government by the minority.
In this section .the minority has
been claimed to hold the radicals who
are favoring government along the
soviet system. Thlt Northwestern sec
tion is the heart of the radical move
ment and in part, at least, so far
as It is officially mentioned, it Is
a "minority rule."
However, the President's position,
so far as can be learned. In no way
backs up the contentions of either
camp. He will. In explaining the call
for the coming convention, outline
exactly the dangers that are sow
facing the United States. And he will
call for concerted action, concessions
to each side, to meet the situation.
On the question of unions for civil
servants the President will take a
very strong position.
"Without Foundation.
Suggestions that the President in
his call for the conference in Wash
ington might tako a position regard
ing the situation In the navy, where
many of the best men are being forced
out. through the inability of the de
partment to meet outside offers of
money, were declared today to be
without foundation. On that 'subject
he will address Congress or the Sec
retary of the Navy.
The President's train reached Port
land shortly after 6 o'clock this morn
ing, but It was held on the side track
uhtil 0, when the party detrained for
a long motor ride, which is to Include
Inspection of the Columbian highway
During the afternoon the party will
be guests of Colonel Jackson at
luncheon and tonight the President
will deliver a set address.
Eight Thousand Brooklyn
Ship Workers Discharged

NEW YORK. Sept. 15. Eight thou
sand shlpworkera who "automatic
ally" established the forty-four-hour

ting, found themselves without jobs
when they reported for work today In
Employers declared the men had
"automatically resigned" by their ac
tion .Saturday, and announced all
strikers would be paid off this after
noon. The trouble arose when the shipyard
workers demanded the forty-four-hour
working week, with Saturday after
noons off. Their demands refused by
Viinvsrrl owners, the men declared a.
strike for every Saturday afternoon.
The owners niiea tne vacancies with
other workingmen.
The unions started picketing today,
and called a meeting to decide further
action against strike breakers.

Hiram Johnson arrived here from
Kansas City today to resume his
fight on the peace treaty.
" "It is obvious from the- Tespoase
of the people to the Issue I ara pre

day. "Its proponents desire to have
it hurriedly approved before our

"I do aot consider there 'has been

LONDON. Sept. 15. Another of

The government is under the most
severe strain as a result of the sud
den and simultaneous maturing of
three or four political and ecomonlc
movements, each containing the mate
rial for a crisis. 'These developments
were outlined as follows:
The administration In Ireland Is
trying to crush the Sinn Fein move
ment. Labor has delivered an ultimatum
favoring the nationalization of mines
and the danger of a political strike is
ever present.
The Russian question remains criti
cal, with demands continuing for the
return of British troops.
The consistent defeat of coalition
ists in bye-elections is diminishing
the cabinet's prestige.
The victory of Arthur Henderson
was the seventh decisive loss suffered j
by the coalition in almost as many j
In addition to these elements, lti
was pointed out. Lloyd George is faced
with the possibility of changes within
his cabinet.
These problems await the premier's
solution. Whether he will be able to
save the day by his personality, elo
ouence and sheer force, as" he has done
In the past, is a question absorbing
all Britain today.

Sir Bobert Home Fores
Bright Future After.
Bscent Troubles.
LONDON, Sept. 15. "After a perH
oua journey British labor is pasaiac
into quieter waters, having hee
steered away from the dangerous
shoals." . .
This declaration waa made today by
Sir Robert Hora,'lnister of labor
and Premier Lloyd George's right
hand" man in adjusting the labor sit
uation on a peace basis.
"If British labor had lost It "head
durinir the critical periods of the$pasC
seven months, causing aa upheaval ia.
England, the result would have bee
it throughout the whole of Burope.
where certain countries probably
would have collapsed," said Sir Rob
ert. "But the steadiaes of the aver
age British worker aad his inhereat
sanity tided England over the stoat
critical periods. There is a calmer
tone in the whole labor situation new,
and the outlook is far from menac
ing. "War has broadened the workman!
outlook. His status has been, ad
vanced In five years to a point that
probably would not have been at
tained in fifty years if conditions had
been different.
"There is every indication that
British labor will make qutalc strides
forward in individual development
along sane liaes, avoiding the. shoals
of communism, as well as the extrem
ist pitfalls.
"I am glad to hear that President
Wilson has summoned a national
conference of workers and employ
ers. Vast good ia bound te result if
each will listen to the other aad try
to comprehend the other's viewpoint;
as the two did here. The British la
bor conference was the first of its
kind ever held. Such a meeting for
analyzing Industrial conditions pro
vided Parliament with exhaustive in
formation, of which the first fruits
were the forty-eight-hour week aad
minimum-wage bills."
PITTSBURGH, Sept 13. Denial of
the report that the nation-wide strike
of steel workers set for September 22
had been called off was made here to
day by William Z. Foster, secretary
of the organizing committee of the
American Federation of Labor.
"There is absolutely no truth la tha
report. No rord baa been, received
from President Gompers," said ras
