The whole nation isaen the verge of a complete tie-up of freight trans portation, officals of railroad em ployes' unions predicted today, fol lowing the unauthorised walkout of 300 trainmen and yardmen in the Po tomac yards. A distinct sentiment in favor of a walkout in the Bkington yards. which handles most of the food and supplies for Washington and vicinity, also was reported today, although railroad officials declared no trouble was expected. Officials of the trainmen issued statements that they would not be responsible for the actions of the Members of their organisations after the end at this week should the Unit ed Sttea Labor Board, now sitting in Cbi i. fail to hand down wage Og .the See men who took "raea tions" in the Patemac Yars yester day and this m rathg, about 100 had aeturood t work at noen today-a sufficient number.

The Department of Labor today mored to settle the "outlaw" strike in the Potomac, Yards by sending Chqrle. Badheim, commissioner of conilation, to confer with the "strik ers" and the railroad officials. Bendheim addressed a group of about 150 men at the yards at noon today and said: "I want to see you men go back 100 per cent strong to night." "Minus 99 per cent." yelled back some of the "strikers." Officials of the trainmen conferring with Bendbelm, declared they had pleaded with the men to return to work and given the labor board an other opportunity to hand down their awards, but had been unable to handle the situation. H. M. Cousins, geneial chairman of the Richmond. Fredericksburg and Potomac railroad, spent all of last night at the Potomac yards trying to influence the men to return to work. He failed. LEADERS URGE MEN TO WORK. Joe Morgan, chairman of the train men's local at the yards, urged th" men to stand by their jobe until they were better organised or until the la bor board had handed down its de cision. Henry Chichester, chairman of the steamfitters, went to work this morn ing with the $ o'clock shift, but when his fellow workman failed to show up for work, he left the job and devoted his time conferring with in dividual 'strikers," telling them to stiek on their job. "The labor board alone can head off a nation-wide tie-up of freight transportation," Walter la. McMeni men, deputy president of the Brother hood of Railway Trainmen, declared today, when reports reached his of fce fromt varteen railredd centers. "Offlelals of the railroad employs wili be helpless to held the men if an awrard is not haded down by the board by the end of this week," he added. "The patience of the employee has been exhausted.

Walters, a negre taxieab driver, of 210. West 187th street, drove Joseph Bowne Elwell home about- 2:30 o'cleek on the merning of Friday, June 11. Assistant District Attorneys Talley and Dooling said last night they had no official information of this de velopment, which, if true, places the murdered turfman in his home six hours before he was diecovered, fatally shot, in the reception room. WENT TraAIGUT NOME. According to the story, the negro chauffeur was driving his "Independ ent" taxi along Forty-second street about 2 o'clock on the morning of the murder and was hailed by a man in evening clothes whose description answers that of Hlwell. Walters, according to the story, said he rec ognised Elwell from photographs published recently. He drove the whist wizard from the New Amsterday Theater building to Sixty-sixth street and Broadway, where his fare stopped him to pur chase a copy of a sporting newspaper. He then drove to No. 244 West Sev entieth street. arriving there about 2:30 a. m. This story would mean that Elwell, after parting from the Lewisohn din ner and roof garden party at about 1:40 a. m. on the Forty-second street curb, went immediately home. Ac cording to the story, Walters was positive in his identification of a photograph of Elweil which was shown to him, and his description of his fare before seeing the photograph, was complete. He said ELsrell paid him 76 cents for the ride. UWOMAN IN GRAY" KNOWN.

June 24.--Ca. and HitehseL That was the ticket tentatively agreed upon at an early morning co ferenes today between supporters of the Presidential boom of Governor James A. Cox of Ohio, and adherents of Senator Gilbert IL Hitchcock of Nebraska. While Hitchcock's name as a Presi dential candidate will be presented to the Democratic convention, the Sen ator is willing to accept second place If a man forovered is nominated for President, Eari B. Gaddis, of Omaha. the Senator's secretary said. Hitchcock Is not coming to the con vention, Gaddis announced. Beyond that. Gaddis wouldn't permit himself to be quoted, but others of Hitchcock's friends allowed it to become known that despite the Senator's absence, his fued with \William Jennings Bryan would be carried to the convention Boor. IN ACCORD WITH COX. Hitchcock favors a "liberalisation" of the Volstead act. He also stands for a ratification of the treaty of Ver sailles and the League of Nations cov enant without "nullifying" reserva tions. In that respect, his friends pointed out, he is in complete accord with Governor Cox. Their pact with the Cox men that Hitchcock should become a candidate for Vice President instead of Presi dent, it was said, was made on the sole condition that the Senator could not be named as the head of the Democratic ticket. Hitchcock and his friends would support Cox if the early balloting gave the Ohio governor the lead. They regarded Cox's record as governor of Ohio as one the Democratic party could indorse, and the American peo pie would approve. WOULD DLOCK URYAN. The coalition between the Cox and Hitchoeck forces could be regarded as another move to block Bryan's avowed determination to carry the "wet' and "dry" and the league issues to the floor of the convention. if he were unable to have his way in the framing of a platform by the resolu tions committee, it was explaine4. Bryan will be chosen Nebraska's representative on the resolutions com mittee even his Nebraska opponent. concede. He will be elected to the committee by a vote of either 10 to 4 or * to 7. it wasi said. Beyond that his strength, insofar as his own dele gation is concerned, will be more lim ited, it was predicted. On the "wet" and "dry" issue the Nebraska delegation will be evenly split-U to I.

"I bring no formal anossage from the President and I have no draft of any planks that the President has pre pared. I believe I have a cleareot idea of what the President wants, however.

While Senator Glas refused to make any flat statement as to whether the President had voiced his opposition to prohibition or Irish planks, he intimated strongly that such was the case and that he was prepared to inform Democratic lead era to that effect. WILL FIGHT FOR WILSON. Senator Glass is prepared to ight for the administration's viewpoint on the platform and anticipates that there will be a struggle between the administration supporters 'and a group led by William Jennings Bryan on the question of a League of Na tions plank. - "Mr. Bryan has pretty clearly In dicated what he intends to 'do, and we won't have to wait much longer to see what the result will be," Sena tor Glass said. The Virginia platform which Sena tor Glass will propose as the Prei dent's idea of party platform pro vides for ratification of the Treaty and the League of N en with nothing more than interpreta tive reservations. Mr. Bryan is op posed to such a plank and favors ratification upon the best terms pos sible. BAKES NO DEMANDS. "The President isn't making any demands upon the convention," ben ator Glass said. "I have a few ree ommendations which I will make to the resolutions committee, and they will get the President's views, whiob . are all Incorporated In the Virginia platforms." "The Virginia platform agee, everythle that Is necessary," Senator Glass ootlnued, "and the President has formally Indorsed it; so It see to me that the President's platform views are pretty well known." Senator Glass Is slated by the Ad ministration forces to be elected chairman of the resolutions commit tee, which will draft the platform. Senator Glass refused to take seri ously reports that Senator David Walsh, of Massachusetts, who is op posed to th.e league of nations, would be elected as chairrean of the resolu tions committee by anti-Adnministra tion forces. "They were electing Senator Walsh In Washington when I left, but the contention Is here," Senator Glass said. GLAss DINES WITH CUMMINGS, Homer 5.
