NEW BOARD TO MEET AT CAPITAL TODAY Nominations of President Ex pected to be Made by Senate Today Board Will Sit at Washington. XKW YORK, July 19. The east ern railroads engaged in a wage con troversy with their SO, 000 trainmen a -d conductors indicated Friday night their willingness to leave with the board of mediation and conciliation appointed by Pres. Wilson the decis ion of which questions are to be sub mitted for arbitration under the New lands act. In a letter to the leaders of the trainmen the conference committee of managers said it seemed to them '"that the immediate difference of opinion relating to the points to be fcubmitted tor arbitration is a matter to be considered by the board of me diation and conciliation." The managers had reference to their demands that "all questions of pay and working conditions" be set tled along with the men's demand for better wages. The managers in their letter of July 10 setting forth their eight grievances referred to them as the ones which the railroads "intend" to have incorporated in the agreement to arbitrate. The roads in their let ter to the men Friday '"ght, while describing their position as un changed, expressed themselves as 'willing" to refer their demands to the mediation board. Claims u Modification. Pre?. Ie of the Brotherhood of Trainmen commented upon the change, in wording. He expressed be lief that a comparison of the phrase ology of the two letters indicated that ii modification of the roads' position lias taken place within the last 4$ Lours. In their letter the managers quoted from the record of the meeting be tween the conference committee and the trainmen's officials on July lt when A. B. CJarretson, president of the Order of Railroad Conductors, had asked that the men's attitude in regard to mediation be not misun derstood. The managers apparently quoted this with the intention of showing that the trainmen themselves had fuggested possible differences in framing the arbitration stipulations and had regarded the mediative body ns the proper one to which such dif ferences should be referred. Roth the managers and the train men's committee will hold conferences Saturday morning, the men to discuss the letter received Friday night from the roads. Roth sides are marking time pending the calling of a meet ing with the mediation board after Its members have been confirmed by the senate. The men reiterated their purpose to demand that this meeting be held at once and indicated that a t-trike would be called within 12 4 hours fitter if the roads retused to sign a triplication that only the men's de mands was to be submitted for arbi tration. The men hope the meeting With the board can be held Monday. IIOAKD MMins TODAY. WASHINGTON. July IS.

WAR CLOUD HOVERED OVER THE CITY MIL Turk and Five Assyrians Al most Come to Blows in Argu ment Over the Purchase of a Silk Shawl. War clouds hovered over the city hall Friday night. For a few minutes it appeared that a whole section of the Ralkan em broglio was to be dumped all over As sistant Chief Chappell's office. One lonely Turk was .matched against five of his most hated enemy, the Assyr ian. Before things quieted down it was feared real Turk and Assyrian blood would be spilled over the carpets of Chappell's suite. This is how it started and, by the way. it isn't finished yet. It appears the Turk, whose name as it was de ciphered from his license is Lusko sowa, peddles silk shawls, neckties and scarfs, one of the Assyrians al leged he bought a shawl from the ! Turk in front of a downtown cigar store on the condition that if his wife liked it he would keep it; if not, he would return it. It appears the Turk agreed to the terms. The Assyrian then says he went around the corner to show it to his wife. Apparently she didn't like it for he brought it back and wanted his three dollars back that he had paid the Turk for it. At this point the war cloud hove in sight. The Assyrian charged the Turk refused to give him the money back. The Turk charged back that he never sold anything to the Assyr ian in question. When he refused to give back the three dollars, the As syrian called Oflicer Stull, who brought the Turk to the city hall. Accompanying him was the Assyrian buyer and four of his countrymen. They came as witnesses to the trans action. Denies the Charge. Upon arrival at the assistant chief's office the Turk began a hysterical de nial of any sale and of any knowl- j edge of the man he was alleged to have defrauded out of three dollars. Rowing and salaaming all over tho oflice, he excused himself at least 100 times for taking Chappell's time, but insisted he did not know the As syrian. It was difficult to understand him. Chappell inquired of him what lan guage he could speak. He answered Turkish, Arabian and French. Whtn one of the other Assyrians stepped forward to talk Arabian, the Turk im mediately said he did not know how to speak Arabian and refused several questions put to him in Arabian. The Assyrian then evidently made some cutting remark about Turks in general and the Turk immediately flew up and answered in a tirade of Arabian. At this point the declaration of war seemed Imminent. The Turk opined as to how Assyrians were not worth "one damn." The Ass;-ians denied this and re taliated will the shot that the Turks were not even worth that much. They began to edge in on the Turk. Re porters standing near began edging out of the firing zone and to make ready for bulletins. Chief Chappell entered at this point as The Powers and suggested that the matter be taken before Prosecu tor Montgomery. So the war cloud blew over and the Assyrians decided to see . the prosecutor Saturday morning. PROSECUTE MOB WHO RODE WOMAN ON RAIL Victim nces to Clilcngo Says Cos sips 'cre Wrong in Comments on Her Conduct. CHICAGO. July 3 9.

After spending the night hidden in a hotel here, Mrs. Richardson went to the home of her sister, in Chicago, and is now under the care of phy sicians. Mrs. Richardson declared th?t the gossip linking her name wkh that of her brother-in-law, William Dunnill, arose from the fact that she frequent ly came to Chicago with Dunnill to buy goods for her husband's store. She said that neighbors who saw them in Chlcutro circulated erroneous stories about her. Sft RS CLEAN P AT SEATTLE Industrial Workers' Headquar ters Wrecked and Furniture Used to Start Bonfire in the Street. SEATTLE, Wash., July 19. That the attack on tho headquarters of the Industrial Workers of the World Fri day night was due directly to an ad dress by Secy, ol Navy aniels, the night before, was the declaration made Saturday by Mayor Cotterill and his supporters. They assert that the sailors who smashed up the I. W. W.'s were in spired by Daniels' denunciation of any mayor who would permit the red flag upon the streets. Mayor Cotterill has permitted in dustrial workers to speak on the streets, but not to display the red flag. On the other hand Secy. Daniels' friends declare that he knew nothing of tho I. W. W. troubles in Seattle and that his reference to the "red flag' was only an aside that follow ed a tribute to the American flag. Word was conveyed to the sailors that Daniels had publicly denounced tho maqor, it is said. Rear-Admiral Reynolds, command er of the reserve fleet, said Saturday he had no othcial report of the riots. SEATTLE, Wash., July 19. A party of United States marines and sailors from the Pacific reserve fleet, most of the sailors wearing the name bands of the cruisers Colorado and California, started Friday night to "clean up the town", as they express ed it, by attacking socialist and Indus trial Workers of the World headquar ters. A second party of men from the Pacific reserve fleet attacked the big Industrial Workers headquarters on Washington st. in the southern part of the city. The contents of the build ing were, dragged into the street and a bonfire made of them. A provost guard of 50 men from the fleet was hurried ashore in cutters to arrest all of the crew on shore. Secy, of the Navy Daniels was din ing on tho cruiser West Virginia, the guest of Admiral Reynolds at the time the rioting began. Dozen in First Party. About a dozen men of warsmcn, all young, were in the flrst wrecking party to get under way. They were aided by several members of the Washing ton Naval militia and by a hundred young civilians, who made most of tho noise. Waving United Statrs flags the storming party swooped down on the cart newsstand of Millard Price, a socialist orator at the intersection of Fourth av. and West Lake boulevard, the busiest night corner of the city. Tho cart was broken to splinters in a moment and the big stock of socialist papers and magazines were torn, toss ed into the street and jumped upon. The mob then rushed to the ;store room occupied until recently by iho Industrial Wrorkers of the World at Fifth av., near Stewart. The wreckers found the place deserted, the tenants had moved. Then the mob went to the socialist headquarters on Fifth av., near Stewart, smashed in the plate glass front and nailed American, flags on the front of the building. Two policemen smiled complacently upon the wreckers. The sailors tore the signs from the front of the build ing and broke them to pieces, and then started to drag the furniture and hooka into the street, but the police men stopped them. Leaders Volunteer. There were demands that the In dustrial workers be hunted down and a young civilian in a white suit tried to induce the party to go to the head quarters of the Moderate Socialists in an old church near Seventh st. An other self-appointed leader led the party toward the old Unitarian church on Seventh av., near Union St., which had just been vacated by the Mode rates. As the naval men were crossing Pike st., at Sixth, they were overhaul ed by an automobile full of police men, headed by a big captain who told the sailors that if they did nt dis perse he would arrest every one of them. The policemen by maneuver ing separated the men in uniform and scattered them. The men shouted to the police: "Your mayor won't do anything to protect the flag, so we are saving your city." A young civilian who had been endeavoring to incite the sailors, kept shouting to them to "go and get Mayor Cotterill". No arrests were made. The mob later re-formed in the north part of the city after it had been dis persed and went back to the socialist headquarters on Fifth av. and Vir ginia and sacked the place, destroying the furniture and a large quantity of socialist literature.

Married men live longer than bachelors, or widow ers, because they have loving wives around to say "One nips enough, John," and to see that hubby gets out his dose of quinine when he comes home with wet feet.

A clever woman has declared that all of man's supposed superiority over woman is because of the numberless pockets in his clothes. With the in troduction of the pants pockets wom en will have a chance to demonstrate the truth of this. day. The journal also comments on the fact that married men, deprived of their wives by death or the divorce court, pine away and die at a speedier rate than the bachelors. "Unquestionably the lower death rate among married men is partly due to the fact that married men live much more regular lives and conse quently avoid many of the dangers of irregular living," says the Journal. "This view would seem to be corrob orated by statistics a3 the mortality among men who have lost their wives either by marriage or divorce. The mortality rate among widowers and the divorced is almost double that of married men of the same age." OKLAHOMA GIRL GOES TO BUFFALO TO MARRY BUFFALO, X. Y., July 13.

FACTORY LEAGUERS WATCHING SINGERS Winning Streak of Leaders is Broken and Ball Bands Hope to Take Another Game. "What is going to happen to the Singers?" is the big question around the Factory league. The sewing ma chine men went to Mishawaka Satur day to play against the Ball Hands, and the outcome is being awaited with interest. Even though the Singers lost this game, they would still be in the lead by 100 points. This w'ould then make their standing eight won and two lost, giving them a percentage of .800. The Ball Bands would then have seven won and three lost, and a standing of Although the two teams who are fighting for second place are not playing each other, there is still a battle. Studebakers and the Ball Bands are tied now for the second division with .667. Should either of these two teams lose and the other win, the real owner of the position will then, of course, be settled. Xow that the Plow boys have a team strengthened pretty well and have at last broken into the "won" column, they may be expected to make a good showing against the Dodges at Singer park. Out at Springbrook the Wagon makers and Watch Co. will meet. Like the Ball Bands they are anxious to get a clear title to second place in order to be prepared to jump into the lead if anything should happen to tho present leaders. PUT UNSPEAKABLE ES UP Tfi B ATHENS, July 19. Authenticated details of massacres, mutilations and a verible holocaust of rapine and mur der visited upon the inhabitants of Seres and the surrounding country by the Bulgarian troops reached here Saturday in the form of a long state ment from the Austrian consul at Salonika. The official charges several Bul garian officers and he gives their regiment and company with having dishonored his wife in the presence of scores of soldiers and hundreds of Inhabitants who later were shot down or bayonetted. The Austrian consul's story of the appalling autrages by Bulgarian sol diers includes in many instances of notables burned to death. cruciiH d, hacked to pieces or terribly muti lated and left dying. A special investigation body sent to Seres has also reported, confirming the charges by the Austrian consul. Toward the evening of the last day of murder, according to the report, about 8 0 women and girls were found hidden in the basement of a ware house by a company of soldiers led by 1 lieutenant. (iirls are Dishonored. It it declared that after the younger women, some of them girls of tender age, had been dishonored, the sol diers secured several barrels of pe troleum oil from a nearby house, poured It over the women, locked all exits and set tire to the place. The bodies of the dead were found by the investigating committee. Some of the bodies were hadless, others had been dismembered. In a large public hall, twenty officials and wealthy men of the town were herded by the soldiers who stabbed them with bayonets and swords ' and then carried them to a trench and covered them partly with earth. Several were alive when cast into the trench. One man. terribly slashed about the face and body lived to tell the committee of what had happened. The committee reports that the number of massacred vill never be known but that it will reach thou sands. Property damage through fires and the looting of stores and private residences, the committee believes, will reach close to $20,000,000. Much of this was portable and included money, jewelry, silverware and rare tapestry and metal from the churches that were sacked. BRYAN OIT TO WINONA WASHINGTON. July 19. William Jennings Bryan, lecturer. Is speeding toward Winona, Ind., on his vacation and on Sunday nii,'ht he will deliver one of his much discussed Chautauqua lectures. As secretary of state, Mr. Bryan gracefully submitted to cross-examination from the newspaper men be fore he left. He protested against being placed in a false light over his lecture business and promised face tiously on his return to make public all his receipts and expenditures. "Has any one ever refused to come to one of your lectures?" Bryan was askeO. by an inquisitive scribe. The secretary smiled satirically and arched his heavy eyebrows. "I never lectured exclusively to newspaper men," he answered. "Therefore I have always had a couple of people. The reception com mittee has already been there any how." "Of course the janitor was around, too." it was suggested. "Oh. yes." said Bryan. "The janitor Is always there." With fine sarcasm, the secretary promised that he would account to the "newspapers" for every cent he made. "Then." he said, "you can have a fine story. I'll tell you just how I divided. Last year I got a guarantee of $250 and a percentage of the gate receipts. The Chautauquas always always have a lot of season tickets T- WLD N THERE WON'T BE AND THERE W LL BE G.U.P, TICKET Central Committee Decides to Throw Strength to the Citi zens' Ticket at Friday Night's Meeting. MINORITY MEMBER SAYS THERE WILL BE Leaves Meeting and Announces That Present Committeemen Will be Ousted and Others Put in Their Place. Will there be a republican ticket in the held this fall? The central committee which met Friday niht at tl e Oliver hotel de cided there would not and further re solved to throw the support of the central committee to the citizens' movement. Hut "You can say for me," said one of the committeemen after the meeting, "that those committeemen who uo not favor a republican ticket will 1 e ousted from the committee and re publicans who do favor a republican ticket will be put in their places." And so the matter stands. Dr. Kdgar L. Meyer introduced the resolution that caused the trouble. The first paragraph was to the effect that the committee was unfavorable to the republican ticket and that none should be entered in the race. It was the second paragraph that caused the trouble. This paragraph read that the central committee should throw its support to the citi zens' party. '1 ho Trouble Starts. Here's where trouble started. 1. C. Fergus moved that the last paragraph be stricken out and that the body on ly decide not to place a ticket in the lield. 1 Bob Rogers st'ongly opposed the resolutions. He said he would not be bound by any such resolution. He said he was elected by the republicans and si-1 id that the republicans should see that a ticket was entered in the race. The matter was then put to a vote and the resolutions were carried by a vote of 11 to u. The chairman, John Delia ven, was not called upon to vote. Dellaven stated later that most of the members were in favor of no re publican ticket, although some of them were not in favor of throwing their support to the citizens' party. Deliberations Secret. The, committee deliberations were secret. Dr. Ldgar L Myers, candi date last fall for corcner, moved that the committee's action was not a pub lic matter. The debate, however, had begun before the meeting opened. Bob Rog ers taking the position that the com mittee had no power to decide on whether the party should be repre sented in the election. "The committee's duty is to support the candidates of its party," he said. "If any committeeman feels that he can't support his party candidates, ho should resign from the committee." "That's what I intend to do," spoke up two other committeemen quickly. (leorge Currise, however, took is sue with Hogers. "We agreed to call a mass meeting and barn the sentiment f the party and to follow their wishes," he suid. "If we don't do this we are not keep ing our word." lAtl of Bull Moo-ors. "The sentiment of the party," re torted Bogers. "The sentiment of a lot of bull moosers. you mean. I am talking about republicans." "Well, what bull mooters made any speeches Wednesday except Noah Lehman?" demanded Currise. "Councilman llice for one," an swered Rogers. "Well, how did you know Rice was a bull moosr? I am not sure that he was one." "Well, I know he was," said Rog ers. "The people who elected me to the committee don't want a republican ticket in the lield. so 1 don't want one." announced Dr. Myers. "Well, the people who elected me do want one, so I am for a party ticket." said a member from the fourth. During the discussion Committee man Rogers paid his respects to the Tribune. "It is the j.rst time in my life," he said, "that I ever heard of a rarty organ denouncing it own party as a bastard party," h said, quoting from the former republican organ's editor ials and news articles.
