Gary said "anybody has the right to form a union." "You recognize the right of men to organize and you have no objectjon to unions 'in your shop, but you re fuse to recognise their officials and confer with them." said Senator Walsh. "Of what good is that?" Gary countered: "If 19 per cent can organise, should they have the right to drive and influence the 98 per cent to JoinV "If labor unions had control of In dustry in this country it would not only mean the closed shop, but re stricted output and increased cost of labor," Gary said.

Wotrid Bncoaraxre the Vieiesu Gary said that "any encourage ment given the present strike would be encouragement given a very vici ous element behind it." He ex pressed the fear that the Senate investigation of the strike might "eneourage" the strike and give a "viofeus element" a chance to air views and propaganda not in ac cord with American institutions." "If there "should now be a dis claimer of amy indent to put into force in your plant the closed shop, would you he willing to talk with those people about the twelve points?" asked Senator Jones. "A statement of that disclaimer would not satisfy me," said Judg? Gary. "If they made any such dis- laimer, it wouldn't be long before they would he eliminated from labor union work and others would be sub stituted." "If we can eliminate the closed shop, it seems we ought not to be fery far apart." said Senator Jones. "At least, with the men whom you call a small minority."

Further steps toward securins a public library for Southeast Wash ington were aken oday when Con gressman Carl E. Mapes introduced in the House a bill authorizing the acceptance of money and a site for that purpose. The Carnegie Foundation has of. fered $50,000 with which to erect the building and several sites in the Ana costia district arc available. The Mns bill would authorize the District Commissioners to accept the! Carnegie fund and with the trustees f the Public Library to agree on a site. v A commission to suporviseaheercc tion of the buildinjr is created by the bill. This commission would consist; of the District Commissioners, tne chairman of the library trustees and the librarian of the Public Library. Under the provisions of the bill and in keeping with the conditions tinder which the Carnegie fund would be accepted. Congress would provide an appropriation for the maintenance of the library, along with other branch libraries of the District.- Dr. George F. Bowerman. librar ian of the Public-Library, at whose request Mr. Mapes offered the bill in the House, explained that with the passage of the measure no -obstacles will remain to delay erection of the proposed new library. Honorably discharged soldiers, sailors, or marines will be employed as far as possible by the Government in taking the 1920 census. The Unit ed State Civil Service Commission issued the following call to the War Department today: "Nearly 90,000 persons will .be en gaged in the work of collecting the facts and figures about Uncle Sam's gigantic family after January 2, 1920. as that is the date set for beginning the' enumeration of the population of the United States. In this project nearly S0.000 workers will be engaged in field work, while .the balance will comprise the Washington office force, where the tabulation, "'clasiincation aid statistical, work' will be done from the information secured from representatives of the Census Bureau in the field. . . "In this, as in every-other Govcrn- meit activity, oldicr, sailors, and arines win De given preiqrence in appointments. This is accomplished giving all service men preference th ed by the Civil Service rules and uiations and the Civil Service mmissioner announces an examina tion for Census Bureau cleWts on .October IS and November 16," "Phis' is made possible as -a. result of ,the "Veteran Preference.

The office of tho Assistant to the Secretary of War has issued this bul letin: "Ex-service men who desire such appointments should make inquiry at tho local board of examiners of the Civil Service in their city, where full information will be obtained. There arc 3,000 of these boards, one in nearly every city of the United States. Men living in communities where there are no boards should write the nearest one or to the Civil Service Commission.

King Al bert, on landing, delivered the fol lowing message to the American people: "At the moment of setting foot on. American soil the King of the Belgians desires to express to the people of the United States the great pleasure with which the Queen and he are coming to its snores at the invitation of Presi dent Wilson. "The King brings to this na tion of friends testimony of the profound sentiments of gratitude of his countrymen for the power ful aid,- moral and material, which America gave to them in the course of the war. The name of the Commission lor. the Relief of Belgius will live eternally in the memory of Belgians. "The King rejoices in the pros pect of visiting the cities whose hearts fought with the cities of Belgium, and whose continued sacrifices knew no measure. He is. happy that he will meet the eminent citizens, who. animated by the highest thoughts, placed themselves at the head of organ izations for relieving the suffer ing of war. "The American people, their splendid army, and their courage ous 'navy nobly and powerfully served a great deal." BURYYANKSENU.S., WAR MOTHERS URGE Resolution Asking That Bodies Be Sent Home Adopted By Convention. Before adjourning their second an nual convention at the Willard Hotel this morning, the American War Mothers, adapted a resolution calling for the return of the bodies of .Ameri can soldiers in France to their native soil. They also urged the placing of naval -and army nurses on an equal basin, and indorsed a petition to be submitted to Congress recommending that a. small working capital be graft ed discharged service men. The association also, after a hard fight, succeeded in having stricken the word "white" from their consti tution, with regard to admittance of members. rfWhich. opens' thei ranks to the colored "war mothers of the coun try. " " The resolution calling for the bring ing "back of the bodics"'of American heroes- who gave theii lives "over tlierel' was adopted following a gen eral discussion of the project. Some 'mothers ex"presed opposition to' such an idea, declaring that "75 per cent of the mothers whose sons died in France v acrae with Mr Roosevelt that their soys i-ho .haiffif fought and,died in foreiafc lands anuuiu i;uijiiiitu iu ausi iuui l. Want TJiem Back. But this opinion seemed to be in favor: "They are pur boys; they be long to us?" and we want them, home. Wo sent them to France, and they gko up their lives, and the least thing the Government can do is to give us back their bodies." A petition calling upon Congress to present discharged veterans of the war with ?a30 as a working capital, was drafted. The resolution recommending that navy nurses be placed on the same scale as the army nurses, was passed by a large majority. It was stated that the' navy nurse have to buy their uniforms while the army nurses are furnished theirs, although they both arc paid the same salaries. Twelve prominent speakers ad dressed the mothers today, among them being Justice Walter I. McCoy, whose son is buried in France. The organization tabled a nsntn. I'tion asking that Ameriran soldiers now policing foreign countries be re turned as soon as possible. Tbe ma jority of delegates believe the Go -ernment is best fitted to decide on the issue. Another resolution parsed supports the American legion and exprctt.es hope foi its continued success. TlcMRlt Of Balloting.

S S, EXPERT TESTIFIES IZ Outlines Evils of Over-Capitalization and Reckless Financing. ' The overcapitalization of traction companies held the center of the stage at the hearing of the Federal Electric Railway Commission this morning. when the Amalgamated Association of Street Railway Employes continued the presentation of its case. . Stiles P. Jones, former secretary of the Minneapolis Voters' League and an authority on municipal problems, was the chief vness. He laid before the commission a study of twenty leading traction companies in which official valuations had disclosed over capitalization and reckless financing for many years. Of Its Owa Maklag. "The present predicament of the street railway industry in'the United States is one in large part of its own making." said Mr. Jones. "It is cre ated primarily by past financial mis management, over which the public had no control and for which it can not justly be held responsible. "A study of t.e financial history of I many representative companies dis closes an amazing story of financial manipulation clear through the life of the properties, the results of which have been to load them down with a staggering burden of overcapitaliza tion to constitute a permanent charge against operating revenue. The inge nuity of the financial management In creating new sources of capitalization has been without limit. Nothing has been overlooked upon which to hang new issues of securities. The inevitable, result is seen in the present undermining of the financial structure of street railway invest ments in this country. The credit of the industry is so Impaired that It can no losger finance its enter prises on possible terms. It is facing collapse through its own devices. Frame Sordid Backgrsand. The methods and agencies by which this unfortunate situation has been brought about frame a sordid background of ruthless exploitation of a great public-serving industry to make financial killings for ma nipulating insiders. Unwarranted promoters' rewards, excess construc tion costs, consolidations, mergers, reorganizations. leases. stock bo nuses, have all been made the me dium for capital inflation. Fran chise value, excess earnings, pros pective future earning capacity, dis counts on securities, even operating deficits, have been capitalized to fur ther 'add to the burden. Everr op--erating improvemen. the increased efficiency of employes, the growth and development of the community and of Industry have been to a large extent used as a means to absorb fictitious issues. "The effort 'to protect the integrity of these false values has absorbed the efforts and resources of the compa nies In such measure as- to make It impossible for them to fulfill their rhnaryi function as public-serving ilnstltutiefjig Indeed, the oneratinn of Xhe Properties the vital point of I the public interest in the street rail way question has been seriously af fected by the financial mismanage ment. Excess operating costs and bad service have gone along hand-in-hand through the years with bad financial management, . while just wage in creases have been held up because of the prior claim of the investor."
