UNIONKHARGE
VV. Jett Lauck Present Position
of Men to U. S. Railway
Labor Board
Chicago, April 20.—Charges thiit
"capital combine," headed by 12 New
York financial institutions inaugurate.!
a policy of nation wide shut downs,
was made today before the United
States Itairoad l,ubot* by Jett Lauck,
economist, for the unions which are
(ighling any reduction in hearings be­
fore the United States Railroad Labor
Hoard.
\lr, Lauck named ahout 100 men
who through interlocking director*
ship, he claimed, centered in these
dozen institutions control of the ma­
jority of the country's important rail­
roads, and of basis raw materials. He
charged that:
"This inter related capital group de
liverately deflated the farmers and
then undertook by precipitating indus­
trial stagnation, to deflate labor."
The ralroads, he asserted, were the
chosen vehicle for this labor drive
Lay-offs ol repair men on railroads in
recent months, he charged, were mr/.e
deliberately, while much of the repair
work was let to outside companies
who charged the roads about twice
what the same repairs would have cost
in their own shops. One purpose, he
said, was to get this portion of rail­
road labor out
0f
government jurisdic­
tion by forcing it to work, for the out­
side concerns. These concerns, he said,
were largely under this same finan­
cial control as the roads.
The document that Mr. Lauck pre­
sented, made about 12!".,000 words. It
was prepared by the American Feder­
ation of Labor Bureau of Research,
Railway Employee's Department, and
entitled, "Human Standards and Rail­
road Policy." ?...
The dozen New York financial insti­
tutions as named were:
Mutual Life Insurance Company of
N. Y.
First National Bank.
Equitable Trust Co.
J. P. (Morgan and Co.
Guaranty Trust Co.'
Equitable Life Assurance Society of
United States.
American Surety Co.
National Surety Co.
Mechanicsfe petals National 'Bank.
.National City Bank.
•New York Trust Co.
Chase 'National Bank.
Mr. Lauck charged that these banks
had directors in 92 Class One rail­
roads, and in 20 railroad equipment
companies, that their directorships
reached 24 coal railroads and coal
companies, and that through non
banking directors this alleged capital
combine was still further interlocked.

BY MARIAN HALE.
New York, April 19.—"Where is
Greenwich Village?"
Echo answers "Where?"
For the passing of Greenwich Vil­
lage is almost accomplished. The
sound of dancing feet is stilled and
the buoyant artists sing no more. The
tea rooms are empty, save for a few
sad uptowners, who came to catch the
bird only to find it flown.
And where have they flown to, these
delightful bohemians?
Where but to Paris!
New York was made to work in not
to dream in and so they have gone,
Constantinople. The New York Greek
daily, Atlantis, gives the following
statement of the reason for the war
which is the Greek view of the case:
The Greeks are fighting in Asia
Minor. A^ter thirty months oif a futile
and useless armistice, Turkey which
laid down her arms in utter defeat on
that fateful day of October 30th, 1918,
is today battling against Greece with
arms and ammunition and money and
no doubt, with the military advice of
the selfsame powers that defeated her
more than two years ago, and with
the help of the most undignified propa­
ganda, that ever was carried in favor
of the unspeakable Turk.
REINDEER TO
BE PROFITABLE
Pargo, N. D„ April 20.—The pre­
diction that within a year the reindeer
industry will replace the gold indus­
try as the industry of Alaska, is made
by Carl J. Lomen of Nome, Alaska,
who is a visitor in- ^argo. He says
that a large and increasing surplus of
reindeer meat is now available each
year in Alaska and this surplus must
be shipped arid sold within the United
States.
Development of a special market to
absorb it is necessary, according to
Mr. Lomen.
