LuW Insistent That Industrial Hurley Mediate Steel Strike Washington, Oct.. 15.?After a hen led all day, session Uevwted a' mo>:t entirely to discussion of lal or's proposal io arbitrate the t-ieel strike.- during which two attempts at postponement and a substitute resolution by Thomas L. Chad hcurne, cf the public vroup, rnc-t with defeat, the National Industrial Conference adjourned last ni^ht without having taken other definite action than the appointment of three subcommittees. Another attempt to'.obtain adtion in the steel controversy, however, will be made by members cf the ? public .croup, headed by Berjiard M. i Baruch, through a; new compromise j proposal when the conference re-j sumes its sessions today. The labor resolution was laid be fore the conference yesterday with out. recommendation by the central committee, but with an amendment proposed in committee bv Samuel Gcrnptrs, presidentv cf the Ameri can Federation of Labor, providing that the arbitration committee be chosen by the conference groups ''from aixemlbers or non-members" of the conference. In re-porting the resolution Chairman Chadbourne an nounced that while the resolution was favored by a. majority cf the members of the cornmitte". it had receive I the negative vote of two groups and therefore could not be favorably reported. A substitute resolution offered by ?Mr. Chadbourne failed to receive the approval of any of the three conference groups, ? although it'was framed' so as to avoid mention of the steel strike. The substitute proposed acceptance of Mr. Gom 'peiV convmit'tee of six to adjust all all "serious labor disputes." its de cision to be final, aftrr ar attempt to reconcile differences had been made by a joint committee of em ?ployers and employes. The labor representatives would be chosen both by those "out on strike and those remaining in the employ cf the sev eral companies." The climax of the day's tense sessions, r.no of which was lecessed in the midst of conclusion, came late in the day when Sanriel Gom ?pcrs, lender of the labor delegation, made an impassioned plea for in tervention in the steel strike ?ml "reviewed ihe negotiations leading: in> to the calling of tne strike on ?Sciptomiber 22. Looking directly at Jud re Ellbert \ II. < iary. chairman of the United ?State's Steel Corporation, seated with the public group less than 1"> feet a.way, the labor leader declared that the Steel Corporation had ""acted like the Bolshevik!" in re fusing to meet representatives of ?the other party in dispute. Judge 'Gary kept his eyes fixed on the la bor leader's face throughout the speech, but made no reply when Mr. Gcnvpers concluded. * ' s v ? ?? ?v ' ' '"'V |ii?;i!ir<'S'.iiu* tiirinliiilix' i:?*:i#? wiifiv <*?-l t-: pnirio! l*i:*t siM'l l;:H Mirir ijhiu-s for his iniiepoudci:t (";*? -:-!n?
