SPECIAL COUNSEL
OPPOSES PLAN

WASHINGTON, Aug. 5 W illiam A
Wimbish of Atlanta, special counsel ,
for the Southern Traffic league, told I
the house interstate commerce com I
mlttee today it should all tight and
proceed with Investigation of the rail
road problem just as if organized labor
had not demanded trl-partite control
of the roads
"Unless you are working on a plan
which includes the return of the roads
to prhate management what 1 may say)
to you will be of no value whatev r."
Mr. W imbish said before taking up his
general statement "If you are gome
to adopt government ownership or ifj
congress is going to surrender to the j
demands made upon it which is un-
thinkable and lie down supinely and)
let one class dictate, then I am in(
no position to help. I don't believe
you will. I believe there is enough pa
triotism, enough ourage in this con
gress not to be stampeded and intimi
dated and forced to do things that
fail to meet its approval. I cannot be
lieve that these extremely radical
propositions represent even the
thought of intelligent workingmen."
Mr WMmbish in his brief said ht; had
not deemed it appropriate to submit
any plan "to be added to the multiude'
now before you."
"The situation." he added, "is entire
ly too serious, for suggesting new theo

BUENOS AIRES, Monday. Aug. 1
Diplomatic relations between Great
Britain and Argentina as a result of
the purehase by Argentina of the Ger
man steamship Bahta Blanca; are del
i-lcare," according" tn Ea Naclori.
In tomorrow's edition the newspaper
will say :
"Regarding rumors which from the
beginning have been founded on more
than supposition, we have received
versions, the gravity of which are self
evident and according to which the
return to London of Sir Reginald Tow
er, British minister to Argentina and
I the departure of Francisco Alvarez de1
Toledo Argentina minister to England,
from London are not disconnected. On
the contrary it appears the retirement
of both ministers is traceable to the
purchase by Argentina id the -.uamer
Bahia Blanca from the Germans, which
purchase the British government re
fused to recognize."
Another newspaper. Las Noticias.
says :
"The occasion for the present situa
tion .is the refusal of the British gov
ernment io recognize the purchase of
Bahjl Blanca, but the real .!:-- un
aerlying the crisis is the Argentine
j government's hostile attitude toward
British capital invested in Argentina"
When the great war broke out the
'Bahia Blanca, a ship owned by the
Hamburg-American Steamship com -l.tn.

For Reducing Cost

BARNES JS CALLED
Wilson to Take Up Mat
ter of Free Wheat
Market.
W ASHINGTON. Aug. 5 Attorney
General Palmer expect? to be ready to
present a preliminarv report to Presi
dent Wilson today concerning possiuie
:-teps to be taken by government agen
cies in the effort to reduce living
costs.
Julius H. Barnes, president of the
United States grain corporation, has
been called to the White House for
late today and it is understood the
president will take up with him a pro
posal to restore wheat to a free mar
ket, with the government making good
the difference between the market
price aud the $2.26 guarantee to the
farmers.
Conferences with Republican and
Democratic senators on the league of
nations have been definitely aban
doned by the president until the prob
lems of the high cost of living aie
solved. Secretary Tumulty announced.
The president, Mr. Tumulty said, "is
going to give his whole time to the
question of high cost of living."
Administration officials feel that
one way to decrease the cost of liv
ing Is to Increase production and Presi
dent Wilson Is understood to feel that
strikes now or threats of strikes will
interfere materially with any solution
of the problem sought by government
agencies.
Whether the president will go be
fore congress to recommend slops de
Bigm d to relieve the situation in which
the country now finds itself, will de
pend, Mr. Tumulty said, on the na
ture of the report to be made bv Mr.
Palmer.
Members of the president's cabinet
went into conference early today with
Mr. Palmer to receive the report of
the special committee appointed last
week to tabulate the various sugges
tions thus far advanced. The confer
ence was expected to continue until
Just before the regular Tuesday cab
inet nieering al the White House.
Mr Palmers report was to be sub
mitted at ihe cabinet meeting and the
president then planned to diSCUSS a
free market for wheat with Mr.
