The report contended that the in dustrial world was "in ferment," the financial word in doubt and com merce halted, while delay on the Treaty had been caused "by a ma jority of the committee known to be out of hrmony with the ma jority of the senate and the major ity of the people." This was de clared to be government by obstruc tion as well as by minority. Trade Suiters Export trade, the report said, had suffered because of delay in ratifica tion; that private credit waited for peace, and that this government, which har been advancing to Euro pean governments has about reach ed the end of its authority given it by Congress. Private enterprise, it said, from now on must keep up American commerce \>ith Europe. Answering the the report said exports to Germany since the armistice amounted to only fourteen cents worth of American products for each person tn Germany, or two cents per person per month. Condemn Reservations "Referring to the action of the majority of the committee," said the report, "we unite in opposing and condemning the recommendations, both as to textual amendments and as to proposed reservations. As far as the proposed textual amend ments are concerned, we see no rea son to discuss their character at length. In our opinion they have no merit, but whether they be good i bad or Indifferent, their adoption by the Senate can have no possible ef fect except to defeat the participa tion of the United States in the Treaty. None of them could by any possibility be excepted, even the great nations associated with the United States in the war and none of them could by any possibility be dictated to Germany. To adopt any one of them, therefore, is equivalent to rejecting the Treaty. * * "To adopt an amendment or to reject the Treaty means that tho United States will sacrifice all of the concessions secured from Germany by a dictated peace. Among the concessions which the United States would sacrifice may be included the following; Sacrifices "First, Germany's acknowledge ment of responsibility for the war and her promise to make restitution for damages resulting from it.

Germany's agreement that the proceeds of the sale of these properties may be used to compensate our citizens in Germany if Germany fails to dd so, or to pay j debts which Germany or Germans j owe to American citizens, or to pay American pre-war claims against I Germany for property destroyed and lives taken similar to the losses be cause of tthe destruction of the Lusitania.

Tn no way can the U. S. assure itself against discrimination in German imports and financial policies unless wo have a member upon this great reparations commission. "These are some, but by no means all, of the valuable concessions which the United States would In evitably sacrifice by failing to ratify ! the Treaty.

BAR.RISBTTR.O TELEORSPH The closing sessio i of the Penn sylvania Millers' State Association was held this morning at the Penn- Harris. After an address by A. P. Husband, secretary of the National Millers' Federation, the reports ol" the nominating committee were heard and officers for the coming year elected. Mr. Husband, who is a man of nation-wide reputation among the millers, gave a most interesting talk on the problems of to-day. He sug gested several ways in which the State millers might better theit trade, and told of the manner in which they should go about it. The election of officers was taken up after Mr. Husband's speech and resulted in the reelection of every Pennsy Shopmen Vote Against Wilson Plan Trenton, N. J., Sept. 11.— Ninety eight per cent of the employes of tho Pennsylvania Railroad car shops have voted against President Wilson's plan to postpone for 90 days their demands for increased wages. This means that they favor an immediate strike unless the mechanics are given 85 cents an | hour and the helpers 60 cents an hour. President Wilson, urged that action on the question be postponed for three months in order that the government authorities might have an opportuni ty meanwhile to so reduce the cost of living as to possibly alter the wage situation. The vote on this request by the President is being taken all over the country. Announcement of the vote by the Trenton shopmen was made yesterday by F. J. Schnorbus, president of the Trenton branch advisory board, Fed eration of Pennsylvania Railroad Em ployes. Accompanying the announce ment was this explanatory state ment: "The time has arrived when the Pennsylvania Railroad shop employes can no longer exist on the wages now being paid. It seems to be the im pression of the public that railway employes are making big money and therefore are not justified in asking an increase in pay." Car Shortage Worries Reading Railway Officials , Rending, Sept. 11.—The accumula tion of shop cars continues to worry officials of the big railway companies. This matter is reported so serious that it is feared the shortage of equip ment during the fall and winter may greatly interfere with the business.

New York, Sept. 11.—Announce ment of the proposed strike of steel workers caused heavy selling and violent declines among leading in dustrials at the opening of to-day's stock market. Trading in U.

Steel common opened with a block of 12,000 shares at 101 to 102 1-2, followed by smaller offerings at 102 7-8 and 102 5-8, as compared I with Tuesduy's final price of 105 7-8.

After yes terday's great parade General Per shing and Cardinal Mercier of Bel gium were asked how the demon stration had impressed them. General Pershing, his lean cheeks flushed and his eyes sparkling, said: "I never saw anything like it, and I never expect to see anything like, it again, it was the most enthusi astic, patriotic outburst that could be imagined. I can't say more than that." Cardinal Mercier, who viewed the parade from the stand at St. Pat rick's Cathedral, said: "Not only is the enthusiasm of the people wonderful, but the order and dignity of the boys is splendid. I have enjoyed this hour immensely, and shall never forget this day. I feel so refreshed about twenty-five years younger." Before he left the stand he gave oU . t .jF e fo|]o% yinir signed statement: The American Army won the war. General Pershing is a genial leader. To him, our respect.

"The prospects are getting brighter every day; I will be nominated by a decisive vote," he said to-day. Al derman John 11. Shaner, of the Sev enth ward, also a candidate for mayor, is also getting around and his friends say he is stronger by far than at any time since he got into the race last spring, while Mayor Keister again denied the report that lie had some thought of getting out of the race and reiterated that he is in the contest to the -finish. The Mayor has not been too busy with the duties of his office to spend some time in campaigning. Nip and Tuck On the Democratic side Dr. G. W. Hartman is having his work cut out for him, William B. McNair, the labor candidate, giving him a hard run for the nomination. McNair should have had the nomination un opposed and would have had it if the Democratic bosses had left their hands off. He was the only candi date for mayor in the field on the Democratic side until the last min ute, when the bosses got together and decided he. wouldn't meet the requirements of the Democratic ma chine. He was too independent, they said. So they hustled around and got Dr. Hartman into the race, much against his own inclinations, it is reported. McNair is now being advertised as the head of the Labor Party ticket, representing the ma chinists' union. A deal of interest has been arous ed in the vigorous contest for the city treasurership on the Republi can ticket, with Harry F. Oves, chairman of the city committee, and C. E. Weber, present city treasurer, making the fight. Oves, by reason of his long service as city chairman, of course, has organization support, and another bid for the place is the fact that he has had experience as city treasurer, having already serv ed a short term. He is getting around the city every day and this morning expressed the opinion that he will be nominated by a decisive major ity. Weber also is confident. He, too, is letting no grass grow under his feet, but is making a very active canvass. He tells his friends he is basing his candidacy on his record in office. For controller DeWitt A.

Gross lias not been in good health and has not been able to get about as much as the others but feels confident of winning, while the other three councilmen express themselves as certain of being re nominated by even larger votes than under the old nonpartisan system.

On the Democratic side the coun cilmanic fight is extremely chaotic. The Democratic bosses disclaim credit for any of the candidates and the orders from headquarters are to let hands off as none of the men in the field can be elected anyway and if elected are too independent to take orders. The contest lies with Harry H. Grant, William S. Rhoads. also on the Labor Ticket, representing the bricklayers' union; Calder B. Shammo, Lieutenant George J. Shoemaker, the only sol dier candidate out for city council, and Toomey, who is out for all the party nominations. All five are making a gallant fight for the three places and it is anybody's contest up to this time with Shoemaker run ning well to the fore on account of his Army record. The county contests, which have not been attracting so much atten tion in Harrisburg, are beginning to loom up tn the city as they have in the county and considerable activity will be displayed In the next day or two. Indian Ministers to Talk at Christ Church At the Church of Christ, Fourth and Delaware streets, Sunday evening, two famous Indians will be a part of spe cial services. Chief Red Fox will give a lecture of unusual Interest, and BlZack Hawk will sing. Both are or dained ministers, the former having been ordained in First Christian Church at GFeensburg, May 25, this year; and the latter at Church of Christ, Lancaster, August 10. In 1914 Ited Fox rode his pony, "Montanna," from Montanna to tho White House, covering a distance of 4,006 miles. He bore a petition from his people to the President, to grant to all American Indians full citizen ship for "American Indian Pay," fourth Friday in September in eacli year. He rode his pony back to the Northwest accompanied by Clack Hawk, his cousin. Chief Red Fox lectures in the pic turesque Blaekfoot costume, embel lished with millions of heads. Black Hawk is noted in singing "America" in the tribal Indian tongue. Red Fox was tho first to organize the Indian Boy Scouts in America, at tAre You Losing Your Grip on Health? Physician's Prescription to Increase The Health and Strength of Anaemic, Run down Men and Women As a result of the tremendous Strain which the war has put Upon so many people, the nerve cells have become devitalized, the whole system weakened and thousands of men and women are to-day losing their - grip on health siihply because their blood is thinning out and possibly starving through lack of iron. It is through iron in the red coloring matter of the blood that life sustaining oxygen enters the body and enables the blood to change food into living tissue, muscle and brain. If people would only keep their blood tilled with strength-giving iron by taking Nuxated Iron when they feel weak and run-down, they might readily build up their red blood corpuscles and quickly become stronger and healthier in every way. If you are not strong or well, you owe it to yourself to make the following test: See how long you can work or how far you can walk without becoming tired. Next take two five-grain tablets of ordinary Nuxated Iron three times per day after meals for two weeks. Then test your strength again and see how much you have gained. Nuxated Iron will increase the strength of weak, nervous, "run-down" men and women in two weeks' time in many instances. The manufacturers guar antee successful and entirely satisfactory results to every purchaser or they will refund your money.
