TRADE ILLS TO
BE DISCUSSED
AT CONFERENCE
Men High in Affairs of the
World's Nations at At
lantic City
Atlantic City, N. J., Oct. 22. —
Hundreds of the world's greatest
business "surgeons"—men high in
affairs in the United States, Great
Britain, France, Italy and Belgium
—met here to-day at the opening
session of a three-days' "clinic" to
diagnose international trade ills and
prescribe for their cure. The first
day was spent largely in the organi
zation of committees and other pre
liminiary work.
The International Trade Confer
ence, as it is called, is being held
under the auspices of the Chamber
of Commerce of the United Statep.
Among tlie notables who are invited
to speak Rro King Albert, of Bel
gium; Herbert Hoover, A. C. Bed
ford, chairman of the board of di
rectors of the Standard Oil Com
pany; Sir Arthur Shirley Benn, M.
P., of England; Eugene Schneider,
head of the Creusot works, the
"steel king" of France; Florimonde
Hankar, of Brussels, director of the
National Bank of Belgium, and Fer
nando Quartieri, formerly head of
the Italian delegation to the Inter
aUled Munitions Council.
Committees to Report
Ten committees, named by an
executive committee of which Mr.
Hedford is chairman, are to submit
surveys and reports on American
trade and financial conditions for
the information and guidance of the
thirty-six foreign delegates. The
topics are as follows: Credit and
Finance; Chemicals; Foodstuffs;
Coal; Oil; Metals; Shipping; Tex
tiles; Re-construction. Supplies and
Permanent Organization. Of all
these committees none, perhaps, is
• lore important .-than the one on
credit and finance, headed by James
S. Alexander, president of the Na
tional Bank of Commerce of New
York.
Discussing the objects of the
Credit and Finance Committee, Mr.
Alexander said: "It is to study the
question of re-establishing normal
trade relations between the United
States and the nations of Europe, to
provide an opportunity for a frank
discussion of facts and an exchange
of views with our visitors from Eng
land, France, Italy and Belgium.
Neither the foreign delegation nor
the American committee is in any
sense official."
Will Carry Weight
While it is a fact that the dele
gates to the conference are not em
powered to pledge their govern
ments in any way, their recommen
dations are expected to carry great
weight. The conference, it is said,
has the "sympathy" of each nation
represented. England, France, Italy
and Belgium, as well as the United
States, has in attendance an official
"observer," who will report to his
government and, where such a
course is desirable, it is expected
necessary "enabling legislation" *vill
be passed to put the recommenda
tions of the conference into effect.
Stabilizing of foreign exchange is,
perhaps, the most vital topic up for
consideration. One delegate put it:
"We must stabilize exchange or we
won't have any foreign trade at all.
Europe need:> vast quantities of raw
materials, semi-finished as well as
finished goods, and the United
States as the storehouse of the
world must extend -credit to put
Europe back upon an industrial,
buying basis."
Two recommendations will be
made at the conference, among oth
ers, for the stabilization of exchauge,
one of an "international currency,"
by Marshall Stevens, of England,
one of the founders of the Man
chester Ship Canal, and the other
for a guarantee by American banks
of foreign railroad and industrial
securities to encourage their pur
chase by American investors.
Plane Again Unable to
Seek Boy, Due to Haze
Hammonton. N. J., Oct. 22.—Ow
ing to hazy conditions the biplane
which was to have arrived from the
Pennsylvania Military College -at
Chester. Pa., did not attempt a
•light. Efforts will be made to have
the same come here the day the
United Boy Scout forces enter the
woods and attempt to discover lost
"Billy" Dansey, or some clue as to
his fate. This will probably be to
morrow or Friday.
It is understood that fully three
hundred scouts will be in service
and that they will be under the
rection of George D. Pettitt, of New
York, a national field scout commis
sioner, assisted by Scoutmasters
Herbert N. Etter, of Camden, and
Harold V. Feyl, of Atlantic City. The
lines of an entirely new theory
to solve the mystery will be
attempted to-day, but the details of
this will not be made known until
later.

Print in Ocher Cities
By Associated Press.
New York, Oct. 22.—Plans were
on foot by New York periodical pub
lishers to-day to break the press
men's strike by temporary publica
tion of their magazines in cities far
removed from the trouble zone.
Authorization of this move was
made last night by the Periodical
Publishers' Association in a letter
to William Green, chairman of the
labor committee of the Printers'
League section of the Association of
Employing Printers. It was under
stood that a large amount of the
work will be taken temporarily to
Cincinnati, where conditions in the
printing Industry are said to be ad
mirable.
Overtures to end the strike were
reported to have been made yester
day by officials of the Press Room
Executives Association. The en
voys were informed, it was stated,
that the only terms on which the
strikers and workmen locked out
could obtain re-employment were
disbandment of their independent
locals and affiliation with the inter
national union from wheh they re
cently seceded.

more than that to the west coast,
principally because of the accident
to M&ynard's machine, which nearly

said. "He collected data which will
prove very valuable to airmen who

not merely a dream, but is very prac
tical and can be easily accomplished."
Two Aviators Are
Fighting For Fourth
Place in Air Race
By Associated Press.
Chicago, Oct. 22.—The flght for
fourth position In the army endur
ance and reliability airplane race to
day was the most interesting fea
ture of the twice trans-continental
contest. Lieutenant Earl Manzelman
and Captain Alex. Pearson who
spent the night at Cleveland, 503
miles from their goal, planned to
reach Mlneola, N. Y., to-day. They
still had as an added incentive the
possible bettering of the actual fly
ing time, as yet not reported offi
cially of Lieutenant Belvin W. May
nard, the "flying parson," who was
first to retrace the course across
the country. Captain J. O. Donald
son, who followed him to Mineola.
and Captain Lowell H. Smith, first
man to complete a San Francisco
to New York and return flight.

the 5,402-mile flight, eight were on
their way to home hangars and

Lieutenant Alexander Pearson, No.

Promises to Return
Work Fails to Bring
Out Longshoremen
New York, Oct. 22.—Not a long
shoreman went to work on the Chel
sea piers in response to 7 o'clock
whistles this morning.
Although hundreds of dock work
ers were congregated in the vicinity
of the big trans-Atlantic steamship
piers there at an early hour, prom
ises to return to work in the Chelsea
district, one of the most important
of the New York waterfront,
brought no result.
It was on the word of tli Chelsea
longshoremen that officials based
their prediction of a break in the
strike here.
T. V. O'Connor, president of the
International Longshoremen's Asso
ciation to whom the promise to re
turn to work had been made, ex
pressed surprise when informed this
morning of the failure of the Chel
sea longshoremen to resume work
on time. He said that failure of the
riggers' local to resume labor prob
ably was the reason for the long
shoremen's inactivity. He explained
that inasmuch as the riggers operate
the tackle and lines on the ships
and piers, It would bo impossible for
longshoremen to begin work without
them.
Foremen's whistles were blown
for resumption of work at piers
along the North River water front
from the Battery to Twenty-third
street as was customary before the
strike in summoning the men to
work. Not a man moved towards
the piers in response to the sig
nals.
In the Chelsea district are located
the great trans-Atlantic steamship
piers, including the Cunard and
White Star lines, the Clyde Steam
ship Company and the General
Trans-Atlantique.

SHOE PRICES TO
REMAIN AWAY UP
Congressman Kreider Sees No
Relief; Only Hope Is to Hold
Them Where They Are
Congressman a/s. Kreider, head
of the A. S. Kreider Company, manu
facturer of shoes, does not look for
any reduction in shoe prices and lays
the difficulty to the sharp advances
in the prices of all kinds of leather.
Leather is scarce and immense quan
tities have been used in the war and
more recently have been sent to Eu
rope. *3y conservative action it is
hoped to keep prices where they
are," he says in a letter to the Har
risburg Telegraph. The letter was
written at the request of J. Frank
McElwatn, president of the National
Boot and Shoe Manufacturers' Asso
ciation, who was recently misquoted
as saying that shoe prices are due
for an early fall. The communica
tion follows:
"Many of the metropolitan and
other newspapers have recently been
carrying large headlines as follows:
'Price of Footwear Drops 20 Per
Cent Another Tumble Due After
Christmas Holidays." The articles
go on to quote that J. Frank Mc-
Elwatn. President of the National
Boot and Shoe Manufacturers' Asso
ciation is responsible for the state
ment, etc.
"As a matter of fact, Mr. McEl
wain had been misquoted, and in a
personal letter to me, has asked me
to try and assist him in correcting
the erroneous impression created by
this article.
"Under date of October 15, he
says: 'My remarks at the Middle
States Shoe Wholesalers' Convention
in New York yesterday have been
misquoted in the papers to-day.
" 'The fact is that there has been
a decline of approximately 20 per
cent, in the price of hides and from
the high point reached in August.
It, however, must be borne in mi,nd
that shoe prices have never reached
the high peak represented by the
August price of hides, and have in
reality been based on hide values
no higher, and in many cases con
siderably lower, than now prevail.
" 'Shoe factories have to-day a
larger volume of orders on hand
than can be taken care of during
the next three or four months. Dur
ing that period they will require a
large quantity of hides, leather, and
other supplies. Desirable leather Is
extremely scarce and cannot be
quickly obtained.
" 'There is, therefore, no indica
tion of a recession in the price of
shoes in the near future. It is my
opinion that the prices for spring
will be no lower than at present.
"'(Signed) J. F. McELWAIN.'
"I wish to say that it is my can
did opinion that prices of footwear
will not be lower in the near future
on account of the extreme scarcity
of raw materials, and the large de
mand. If there is any change in
price, it will be an advance rather
than a decline, but it is to be hoped
that further advances may be avoid
ed by conservative buying on 'h e
part of the retailer, the manufac
turer and the tanner, for it must be
remembered that, after all, the basic
product is hides and skins, and if
these should be fprced to higher
level, by an abnormal demand, of
necessity prices of leather and shoes
must follow. By conservative action,
it is hoped these advances may be
avoided.
"Yours truly,
"A. S. KREIDER."

the Chamber of Commerce and the
Klwanls Club also to appoint workers
for the loans. Both resolutions had |
the endorsement of Rudolph K. Sptc
er, of the public affairs committee and

the Metropolitan Life Insurance Com
pany in Harrisburg, who has Just
completed twenty-five years In the
service of the company, and Mr.
Heathcote and Walter L. Metz, an in
dustrial insurance and group policy
expert, spoke on the business of the
Company. Mr. Heathcote said that
"there is nothing In Insurance too
big and nothing too little for the
Metropolitan, ' and he spoke at length
of the welfare work being done in
the industrial department, where ex
pert nurses are constantly at work
among policyholders, their services
being free, and of the great educa
tional work along health lines con
ducted by the company. He said that
in Harrisburg the Company had paid
out more than four hundred claims
due to the influenzt and pneu
monia, and that for the year to Sep
tember 1, 506 death claims had been
paid through his office. The increase
of premium income yearly through
his office since he took charge is con
siderably more than 6300,000, he said.
Mr. Metz spoke at some length on
group insurance, by which Industries
are enabled to insure all of their
employes without physical examina
tion, s< > that in case of death, the
employe leaves from one to two
thousand dollars to his family at no
, cost to himself. This is proving pop
ular in many places, the Philadelphia
Rapid Transit Company being one of
the corporations that recently have
taken out policies. He and Mr. Heath
cote also spoke of the company's sav
ing system t6v employes, whereby.by
the company adds 50 cents to every
dollar saved by the employes, and

health measures which the company
has worked out for all its employes.
After the meeting refreshments were

ORGANIZE TO
BOOST SQUARE
Businessmen Propose to Look
After Interests in City's
Center
The Market Square Association,
composed of the businessmen who
have their places of business on the
Square was formed last night at a
meeting held in the Tenn-Harris.
The organization winch has as its
purpose the betterment of conditions j
in the Square elected David Kaufman!
president, I'aul Johnston, vice-presi-l
dent, and Stanley S. Zimmerman sec
retary and treasurer.
The association has no selfish mo
tive against any other section of ths
city but intends to work out their own
problems of Market Square with an
eye to bettering conditions as much
as possible. One of the first things
to bo taken up will be the improve
ment of the Square from an artistic
point of view, so that it will-become
more of a municipal asset.
Five businessmen were appointed
last night to make a thorough inves.
tigation of the problems which con
front the Square. They will get the
opinions of all men who are. have
been, or expect to be connected with
the Square in any way. and endeavor
to deduce from these many opinions
Just what tile best steps would be to
follow out In making the Square a
bitter place.
At a later meeting of the Associa
tion this committee will turn in its
report, and although it is expected
that the personnel of the committee
will be able to submit a report which
may be a-ted on, it is also thought
that the advice of experts may be of
benefit in the problems, which must
be solved. It is the opinion of the
committee that the Square will be
come in future years even more the
•central point of the city than it is
now, and unless it is adequately
treated, Harrjsburg will lose a con
siderable asSet from many stand
points.
Traffic regulations will be consid
ered and suggestions put forward as
to the best way of regulating the con.
stantly increasing flow of vehicles.
The establishment of an isle of safety
and a public comfort station will also
be among the questions taken up. A
number of men expressing their
views at the meeting last evening,
said that they thought the traffic
problem the most serious one which
demands the attention of everybody
immediately.
Mr. Kaufman will shortly appoint
another committee of three to draw
up a set of rules to govern the asso
ciation.

case of the German Kmperor.
I). S. Denies Justice
to Poor Is Charged
New York. Oct. 22.—With the in
dorsement of Elihu Root in an accom
panying foreword, the Carnegie
Foundation yesterday issues a report
entitled "Justice and the Poor," which
"finds that the present system of ad
ministering Justice in country
fails to give adequate protection to
the rights of poor citizens and im
migrants and recommends the estab
lishment of certain new types of
courts and the rapid extension of le
gal aid organizations and of defend
ere in criminal cases so that the de
nial of Justice which now exists may
be speedily ended.
The report was written by Regi
nald Heber Smith, of Boston, and is
! based on a study which embraces his
investigation di first hand of courts
and legal organizations throughout
the country during the last three
years and his experiences as counsel
for the Legal Aid Society in poston,
in which capacity during five years
ho represented about 15,000 clients ,
consisting of the poor persons and j
immigrants in that city.

U. E. RALLY IN ,
BIG CAMPAIGN IS
WELL ATTENDED
Raise Million Dollars For
"Forward" Work Is Goal
Set by Denomination
Many United Evangelical memberr
attended the "Vorward Campaign"
rally held in the Harris Street United
Evangelical Church, the Rev. W. S
Harris, leader of the Harrlsburg
group, presiding. The gathering wa:
opened with congregational singing
and prayer by Bishop W. H. Fouke,
of this city.

ed on the program by reading scrip
ture: Dauphin delegation, 85 in num
ber, the Rev. W. S. Harris leading:

"Forward Movement" was the sub
ject of the address of the evening,
delivered by the Rev. E. E. Stauf
ifer, professor of Albright College,
Myerstown. He emphasized the im
portance of the forward movement
work in the church to-day. He
said in part:
"The disputes of labor and capi
tal fall in a crucial time. The thing
as issue is not the quest of wages
but the question of morals. During
the past year there were sixty-three
strikes in the United States. Fifty
three strikes were called because
men did not stand by the agreements
made. Only sixteen strikes were
legitimate. Somebody slipped at the
moral end of things.
"The golden rule of Jesus Christ
should be the rule of commerce and
business as well as in the home life.
Our whole social basis to-day is en
tire pagan and unchristian.
"One million dollars is the aim for
the United Evangelical Church for
five years.
"Japan is becoming rationalistic,
he said, as he quoted a missionary.
"Our aim and duty is first to make
China Christian. Here we have a
large field established under the sup
ervision of the Rev. C. Newton Dubs,
"Unbelief is crowding into our col
leges and high schools and is also
undermining the pulpits of to-day.
The tendency is to gradually put the
denominational college to death.
Salvation is needed in the denomina
tional colleges. The life of the world
Is the Cross of Jesus Christ."
Bishop W. M. Stanford, D. D., of
this city, closed the meeting with
prayer.
