Blf&eeijth-es Said to Have Given Up

Washington, Aug. 22.?Bight presidents

I "were in almost continuous session today
and tonight without solving thei*
problem. Late tonight three of th3
committeo, Hale Holden of the Burlington,
R. -S. Lovett of the Union Pacflc
end Daniel Willard of the B. ^
O discussed the situation vrith President
Wilson. They were at the V/hi e
House for more than an hour and on
[ leaving declined to talk about their
* visit further than to say theyt had
efeed for the conference to "discuss
general situation," and expected
to see ?he president again.
Although, some of the 60 or more
presidents are showing a disposition
to prolong the negotiation in the hope
that the sentiment of business men
et the country -will be shown to be
opposed to the idea or an eight hour
day, there was a general feeling tonight
that a definite answer to President
Wilson's demand can not be
(much longer postponed. The president
is understood to have indicated
that he desired his proposal to be
fuHy debated by the executives', but
tfcer conferences among themselves
I have failed so far to develop ony conI
crete plan likely to win approval.
Insist on Arbitration.
So far as the presidents would discuss
the situation tonight theyf still
"are insistent upon an arbitraton of
the eight hour day and iall other Is
I sues with the employes. As the conferences
continued there was less
talk of action which would lead tc
a strike, but some dt the executives
are expected to fight to the 1-ast ditch
any plan which would force an eight
hour day upon the roads withoui
?ome form of arbitration.
' It wns understood that the ?W5iite
House conference tonight did not de ekrp
any actual plan, but that the
executives wished to get Pres!den\
Wilson's viclvs on various phases o!
the natter, so that they could be outlined
to the rest of the commtttee tomorrow.
The executives are said to
realize that Mr. Wilson can not recede
from the position he has publicly
taken, and some of them are convinced

Case for the Public.
The railroad executives who are
counting upon winning the president
to their position in the negotiations
say that the case after all is to be decided
by public opinion and that this
will be found to support arbitration j
and condemn the eight hour day.
The cabinet 'discussed- the situation '
at today's meeting and in the opinion
a* some of the members the danger!'
o* a strike lias been greatly lessened.
It is understood that the chief object
of the visit to the White mouse
wias to ask the president to state specifically
how lie expected the railroads
to make up the millions of dollars
; which the managements say it will
cost them to put into effect the eight
hour basic day they are asked to
grant. What the president said in
i . ,,
reply none or tne committeemen
would reveal. Heretofore, according
to the railroad men, Mr. Wilson lias
' dealt with this phase of the subject
; only in the most general terms.
Besides IMIessrs. Holden, Lovett anl
I7vlll<ard, the committee of railroad
! presidents includes Fairfax Harrison |

Discontent over being held in
Washington without prospect or
prompt action by the railroad managers
caused some of the brotherhood
men to protest today at one of their
j two meetings. "W. G. Lee, 'head of
! the trainmen's brotherhood, silenced
! objections, however, by assuring the
j men that in his belief they would not
j be held here more than 48 hours
' longer. There will De ianotner meet[
ing tomorrow morning.
I An invitation to visit the capitol,
extended the men today by Vice President
Marshall, was accepted by a
| large number. The vice president adj
dressed them cordially.
The brotherhood heads in the first
formal statement since arriving In
Washington replied to various con-,
tentions of the railroad managers anc
j presidents who are urging arbitration.
[ The statement declared that the rail|
roads never had shown a desire to
I resort to arbitration unqualifiedly for
settling their differences with em
ployes. As proof of this they named
64 railway lines, all of which, the>
maintained, are controlled by larger

managers, the employes 7 of which
never have been offered the advantages
of arbitration by the roads because,
the statement declared, theiiowners
do not fear the results 01

| The statement said in pirt:
I "It is true that the executives of

"The sincerity of this new horn and
loudly proclaimed belief, as expressed
f by the spokesman of the railway presidents?'It
is essentially the common
right of every citizen, of whatever
station in life, to be heard, to have
his day in court,' and, 'We stand for
the principle of arbitration for the
settlement of industrial disputes,' ana
the further statement by the chair
man of the conference committee of j
managers, 'If we are to throw arbitration
into the scrap heap, what
hopes can there be in America for
industrial peace in the future?' is
best shown by the attitude of these
railway companies who are loudly
proclaiming the virtues of arbitration
and their undying adherence thereto;

Here folor;ed the list of 64 propertits

"Therefore the richt to their '<3ay

committee would not apply on

of the conference committee and of
the presidents above them is that on
lines where the men are not strong
enough to force a hearing there is
'nothing to arbitrate,' while on lines
where a costly contest could he precipitated
arbitration becomes the
dcp.rest principle connected with flie

"It might be pertinent at this timfc

all felt that it wias good to travel on
Newberry's streets again.
Eterly Tuesday morning, August 3,
eight Newberry boys set out by the
wagon route for Russells, S. C., about
20 miles above Walhalla. The first
stop was made at Chappells where
three more boys (including "Snow,"
the cook) joined the gang. After this,
stops were made at Ninety Six, Greenwood,
Hodges, jHonea Path, Belton
Anderson, Pendleton, Clemson, Seneca,
Wklhjalla and Mt. Rest. Everywhere
the boys were shown many
favorsf and received many smiles
which of course helped to smooth
out the knots and kinks received at
the hands of the wagon. The?

afternoon -and immediately

With reluctance Thursday morning
camp stakes were pulled! up and
tracks were made towards home. The
conduct of the boys throughout the
trip was very commendable. And
seemingly they made very favorable
impressions ini every town visited.
Especialy is this true of one of the
boys, for lie had nar-aiy reaoutru

Kay F. McNaJrmara, piloting a Maxwell
car, recently made some remarkable
records on the western coast,
adding to the reputation this make
has established for all-around efficiency.
He broke all speed records in a
run from Spokane to Seattle in
stock /Maxwell roadster. The elapse 3
fme for this run was eleven hours,
fifty-five minutes. The Maxwell bett
red the train schedule betwaen these
points by more than an hour and
lowered the former automobile
record by five hours.
McNamara averaged thirty-two
miles an hour across the desert lands
of eastern Washington. He crossed
the dangerous Blewitt Pass in the
iAtenatchee mountans and the Snoqualmie
Pass in the Cascades after
midnight and arrived in Seattle early
in the morning.
This record run was checked offi
cally by the newspapers of 'Spokane
and Washington.

I Another record for speed and efficiency
was hung up by McNamara on
a run from Portland to Spokane. Tin 1
distance is 458 miles and the elapsed
time was fifteen hours and thirty-oin
minutes. The best previous record fo" j
this run was made last May, when a
motor car did the distance in twenl '
hours and thirty minutes.
McNamara attributes the success of
both runs to the quick acceleration.
