WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.—Four hun dred thousand men—earn'ng annually $400.000,000—employed on 250,000 miles of railroad—these are the fig ures involved in the threatened strike of the railway brotherhoods. A strike would mean, according to the bureau of railway economics today, the greatest transportation tto up In the history of the country with accom panying prostration of commerce that may send the financial loss to the nation soaring into the billions of dol lars. Advance reports reaching Washing ton, indicate the railway employes will vote overwhelming to go ahead with the strike unless their demands are granted. If the strike comes, half a dozen resolutions of forced arbitration will instantly .be presented to congress. Many of them have been drafted for weeks, but withheld on the possibil ity that the trouble will be averted. They order, on the ground of public emergency, an immediate settling of the strike by mediation. Should these measures be pressed, congress appears due for one of the hottest fights the capitol has seen in years. The four brotherhoods are determinedly opposed to mediation and have given notice that men who seek to force it on them, will feel the full political power of 400.000 organ ized voters In the fall elections. Their fight will be led by Senator LaFollette, who has prepared an ex haustive speech charging tremendous "watering" of stock by railroads. Counter offensive probably will de mand an immediate physical valua tion of the roads. The railroad faction will insist that a national strike means widespread food shortage and actual starvation in some of the larger cities. Insist Upon Demands. CLEVELAND, Ohio, August 2.— "Sentiment among the 400,000 mem bers of the railway brotherhoods, Is overwhelmingly In favor of insisting that their demands be granted," Wm. O. Lee, president of the Brotherhood of Railway. Trainmen said here today before he left for New York where the strike vote is being counted. "Railroad officials are trying to make the public believe that by grant ing our eight hour demands, trains will be stalled between terminals," said Lee. "That is not true. The men can still continue to work six teen hours a day, as federal regula tions allow, but they will get over time pay." Miss Beatrice Whitehead and Miss Nellie Watson are spending the day in Fort Madison and Burlington. 'Vr~«- .-vi get rena&v ^fWvi their vertisements putting forward side of the controversy. The strike vote, if it results as pre dictions .indicate, will force four heads of railroad unions to call a general strike in demands for eight hour day and time and a half for over time. "This Is the biggeBt labor movement in history," said Shea. "It's the larg est in number' of men involved and covers a wider latitude of territory than any other labor move In history." Charges that the railways offered to settle the difficulty either by arbitra tion or conference to the interstate commerce commission and the offer was refused by employes, the nation al conference of the railways today started an advertising campaign in support pf their position. Copies of advertisements to be used in various sections of the country were sent out by the committee. The advertisement addressed to the public, is headed "Railroad wages—Shall tkey be de termined by industrial warflre or fed* eral Inquiry?" "The railroads are in the public ser vice—your service," reads the ad copy. "This army of employes is in the pub lic service—your service. "Ton pay for rail transportation three billion dollars a year and 44 cents out of every dollar from you goes to the employes. 'A 1100,000,000 wage Increase for men in freight and yard service (less one-fifth of the employes) Is equal to live per cent advance In all freight rates. "The managers of the railways are trustees of the public.and have no right to place this burden on the cost of transportation to you without clear mandate from- the public tribunal speaking for you." W«er i&tedSfest C, Vi TO REGAIN FARM Former Well-to-do Lee County Man Files Action to Recover 1,189 Acres, Deeded for Mer cantile Business. J.. HIS SEASONS &m The tragedy of misplaced confi dence is written in a petition of seven pages filed in the district court hero today by O. O. Newberry, a former well to do land owner of Lee county, against Walter I. Manny, John B. Connor and Dan Rariden. Mr. Newberry in his petition filed by his attorneys, Holsteen and Hill of Bur lington and F. O. Hutton of Bloom field, asks that the warranty deed conveying his farm of 1,189 acres be rescinded and that the title be for ever quieted in him he asks for an accounting from the defendants tor the land, and on this accounting that the court award him judgment that the defendants be enjoined and re strained from disposing or all or any part of the land acquired, and for other relief. The petition sets out that Mrs. Helen V. Newberry, wife of the plain tiff, finding that they had lost their farm, brooded over the matter and that she became 111 and«died as a result. Plaintiff sets, out that through the alleged transactions recorded in the petition he has lost all of his farm in Lee county, and that it is being occupied now by Dai. Rariden, one of defendants, and that he has reason to believe that the defendants are endeavoring to dispose of the holdings. The First Transaction On April 25, 1913, and prior there to, according to the petition on file today, plaintiff was the cwAer of a certain farm in Lee county compris ing. 1489 acres. Defendant Walter I. Manny, It is aleged in the petition represented to plaintiff that he owned a certain mercantile business which was located at Mt. Sterling, Ill„ and which would invoice at $20,000 and that the stock and good'will would selKat forced sale any time for this amount. TbiJ1representation, plaintiff alleged in che petition was fraudu lent, and that defendants realised this. Plaintiff was induced, he alleges In paragraph three, to make a trip to the Illinois town and was introduced to John B. Connor who represented that the good will and the stock of the goods was worth $20,000. Plain tiff alleges that defendants knew he was not fc.n'illar with mercantile busi ness and that they induced him and his wife Helen V. Newberry, to enter into a written contract for the ex change of plaintiff's farm for $46,000 and that the deed was made. The Texas Land Trade. it is further alleged that the plain tiff was told that a certain D. A. Haws of Decatur was the owner of land in Texas which was worth |2& per acre, the land amounting to 440 acres. Plaintiff alleges that he was persuaded to trade his stock of mer chandise for this Texas land. When he went to have the deed properly recorded he alleges he found that Haws- was not the owner cf the land, but that D. W. McWilllams was. As a result, the petition sets out, plaintiff has nothing left and has com pletely failed. When plaintiff's wife learned the truth, she became ill and died, the petition sets out in another paragraph. Plaintiff alleges tfyat he has rea son to believe that the farm is now being rented by Daniel Rariden, and that defendants are trying to dispose of the farm. What He Asks. For these reasons plaintiff asks the court that the warranty deed be re scinded and that the defendants be required to form a reconveyance of the 1,189 acres of farm land and that the title be quited in plaintiff. That the defendants be required to make an accounting of the income from the land. That the defendants he restrained and enjoined from conveying or at tempting to convey any or all of the land. That Rariden be enjoined from pay ing any rent or money for land with out consent of plaintiff and court. That a writ of attachment issue. Attached to the petition are several exhibits. F. O. Hutton, attorney for plaintiff, was here today looking up some records in the mater. The firm Which represents Mr. Newberry had charge of the prosecution of the Metz Brothers in the federal court two years ago in a ho-se trading case in which the Chicago men were found guilty.

For it has sadly tampered" with this ancient and honorable game of golf as played on the local Country club links. .• There is hardly a green blade of grass left on the entire course and the result is that the once green covering of the links is now dried and burned and slip pery. The consequence is that the course is too fast for accur ate playing. Where a player could former ly judge the distance his ball was to'travel on the tender .• greens, he now trusts to fate for on tie sun-dried, slippery links, the ball rolls and rolls and rolls, defeating the most accurate paying.
