COAL STRIKE PUT UP TO PRESIDENT Today How Bees Divide Sugar. Two Parasites. Kill Both. Industry Is War. Let Him Plot. By ARTHUR BRISBANE. (Copyright. 111*.) Three thousand pounds of sugar ?r? ordered sent to Massachusetts to feed starving bees- One single county will need at least thirty or forty thousand pounds. Its bees Bust have had a bard Summer Ifecause of the rain. It is a r?m fort to know that when the bees get tbe sugar they divide it up fairly. Raeh gets bis share. Early in the season they killed Kali the drones, non-workers. ly one bee gets more than the others, and H is not a bee that puts the Uttle bees to work and lives on the profits, nor is it a be? that watches others while they 'I work and takes the product away from them, giving them just enough to live the next day. T%e extra amount is given by the bees to the mother bee, called by human beings the queen bee. Only one bee in the hive has dmv She sees her husband only once- in her whole life, on which occasion he dies. Then she raises little bees while all the others work. This seems a just, although ? rather dull, arrangement ? especially dull for the father bee.) Things are managed differ ently in the human hive?too much sugar for a few, not enough for many They were going to invite Cooiens, Mayor of Detroit, to Can- . ada to make a polite bow before , The Prince of Wales. Suddenly faithful Canadian sub jects told Mayor Couzens that he need not come. The change wsi made because the mayor had of f;* tally received Eamonn de Valera, prudent of the Irish republic. That is an interesting little piece of news. It would interest wm* of the American old-timers, Pel rick Henry, Pranklin, Jefferson, i ?nd other gentlemen now nearly ?? t of date. A mayor in a repub- ] lie that established its independ ence by fighting against England ventures to receive politely a man who represents the effort of Ire ir.nd to establish a republic in the tam way. And as a punishment this mayor is told that he can't *hake hands with the Prince of Wales, some day to be successor to our old friend George Third. There are some near the top in England that would tell the Ca nadian gentlemen they acted foolishly. The time hasn't YET come for telling mayors of Ameri Vcsn cities whom they may receive without offending Groat Britain. rfr Bedford, chairman of the hoard of the Standard Oil Com pany, soolce eloquently at Atlantic C'rty about "a common foe, an enemy within us, a parasite born of the war." He meant Bolstev ism. alias (ttscontent and thought it important to kill that parasite. ? It is important, but another para s't- was born of the war, named "Profiteering." And the profiteer ing parasite ig" the father and mother of the parasite of discon tent. Cut down prices, check profiteer big, that people may live decently on what they can earn decently.

The result was well and briefly described by young Mr. Lawrence as follows: ''Labor ask ed for everything, and got noth ing." labor probably got what it ex cited Now the great conference is "off" Capital, which deals with e-'JiTthing and everybody col lectively, said politely to labor: "We won't deal with YOU collec tively, We prefer to consider work ingmen a* individual, separate atoms attached to our organiza tion." Labor said: "Good-bye" New the stormy petrels, so-called "oublic group." that hover between the capitalistic paradise and the other place, are a.-ked if they can't do aomething and are going to see about it The President in his letter to the Industrial Conference, asks: "Are we to confess that there is bo method to be found for carry ing on industry except in the spirit ? and with the very method of war?" A method may be found and is earnestly to be desired. But it has not been found yet Workingmen have fought labor-saving machin ery that improved their condition and their wages, employers have fought labor unions that would stabilize industry fnd make the employer secure. t)n one side ?tone* and clubs have been used, on the other shrewd lawyers, strikebreakers, private detectives ?nd the weight of money. The history of labor comintr op from the day when the slave was chained to his oar in the galleys, worked under the lash in Egypt, slaved in the cotton fields or in the sweatshop has been a history of war. It WILL change, hut it would be too much to hope ?hat one single, well meant con f -?nce would change it. Make industry attractive.

X A. F.L CALLS CONCLAVE; JOHN DJR,PLANS TRUCE Today's developments in the industrial crisis were: Gigantic coup planned by organized labor and initiated by the American Federation of Labor in calling a general labor conference in this city "at an early date." John D. Rockefeller, jr., chairman of the committee of five, began work on tb* treaty for industrial peace to be sponsored by public group of the adjourned confer ence. Secretary of Labor Wilson fails in final effort to bring miners and operators to agreement and puts crisis up to the President. House members indicate that anti-strike law planned in Senate may be stricken | out of House bill. LABOR PLANS COUP TO WIN FIGHT WITH CAPITAL Girding for t finish fight with capital, the American Federation of Labor today announced that a treat labor conference would be convened in Washington in the near future. Samuel Gompers will call his hosts to this city, probably early in No vember, to survey the situation snd prepare fl&r what they think will be a long siege of industrial strife and discord. AU Unions Represented. The m tnteraattoiwrt union*. th* four railroad brotherhoods. and the United Mine Workers wlllbe ?ented.

This dispatch via sent to Gompers after the withdrawal of the labor group from the industrial conference. Call la Lab*r*a Aaawer. The call is labor's announcement to the country that It will fight to the end In the steel strike and In the other industrial conflicts that are coming. The most Important factor in the conference Is that scores of delegates from the International unions will bear instructions from their con stituencies to insist upon a far more radical policy than that which the present leadership In the federation now sanctions. In asking Mr. Gompers to Issue this call, the Illinois Federation stated: "One of the objects of the confer ence should be the levying of an as sessment upon every organised worker In the United States and Can ada of not less than one-fourth of his net earnings; and upon every of ficer of organised labor not less than 60 per cent of his salary until the ob jects of this drive be accomplished."

HOUSE TO MODIFY CUMMINS RAIL BILL Anti-Strike Teeth Will Be Drawn Is Belief of Leaders. Virtual agreement has been reached by the House Interstate Commerce Committee today in its framing of a railroad bill, not to include the dras tic anti-strike provision of the Cum mins bill now before the Senate. While the labor provisions of this bill have not been oompleted, the House program apparently is being formulated along these lines: Compulsory arbitration of all dis putes between railroad operators and employes by a Government arbitra tion board, to be formed Moillar to the War Labor Board. The dispute must be submitted to the board before any action such ns a strike or a lock out. Enforcement of the findings of the board Is left largely to public opinion, and the arbitration does not bind either party's later action. Sentiment In the House subcommit tee apparently does not favor the Cummins plan of calling all railroad strikes Illegal. It Is thought to be constitutional, but Impractical of en forcement.

Rockefeller, jr., son of the richest man in the world. Is in the limelight today as the dominating figure of a final effort to avert indus trial war In the United States. Out of the wreck of the National Industrial Conference, the public group alone remans; and this group, s committee of five has been appoint ed, with Mr. Rockefeller as chairman, to determine upon policy.

At yesterday's meeting many mem hers expressed the belief that ths break-up of the conference, which followed the walkout of the labor group, had caused the whole affair to | take on the aspect of failure as far as public opinion is concerned. They are anxious, if the public group at tempts to carry on the work of the whole conference, that the group be given a new standing, or be reorgan ised so that It shall not be handi capped by the failure of the confer ence a* a whole to get results. Css Make Old Salt nt Rockefeller, in a speech which was described as "safe, conservative, mod erate. and sane," likened the problem before the public group to that of a tailor trying to make a new garment out of an old suit of clothes. He liked to work with new cioth, he said, but declared that the old garment could be used as a pattern. As a result of this feeling, the group may ask President Wilson to give it a fresh start as an industrial peace conference by reorganising It and giving it a new name. The employers' group, before dis ! banding, issued a statement in which I it was emphasized that the confer ; ence had achieved certain results, and | that "collective bargaining, an ac cepted and desirable polcy in Indus I try. has been brought more promi | nently before the country and will influence a sincere effort on the part | of innumerable manufacturers to And | an acceptable medium through which | this collective relationship m.iy be secured and maintained in the indus I trial establishment."
