Although the peace terms
which the allied and associated
nowers are to present to the
Austrians are virtually complete
and report says that next Wed
nesday has been chosen as the
day the Austrians will be called
before the peace congress, ne
gotiations may be delayed by
reason of tjhe fact that Hungary,
where extremely unstable con
ditions still exist, has failed to
appoint delegates to go to St.
Germain. . ... , . .

Sponsoring of Ship "Welka"
p is Reported to Have Start
ed Trouble -600 At Mass
. Meeting.
.... ' .
A mass meeting of union ' men in
sympathy with -the walkout i at - the
ship yards yesterday morning of wood
workers was held last night, at the
W. ' O. ' W. hall on Romana street.
About 600 men were J . present and
President - Allen of the district coun
cil Of carpenters and "joiners presided.
Chairman , Allen e stated that the
meeting had been', determined upon
the previous night, and that the real
action of the unions was taken at that
time, ..the' -.second meeting being held,
for the purpose , of providing means
to. carry out the decision made, ati the
first meeting .namely, i to send, a, com
mittee to lay ; their "': grievances , before
the proper --federal -: authorities,, at
Washington. : '
Chairman Allen further stated that
the walk-out at'jthe yards in the morn
ing was not in any sense of the word
a" strike, but was the individual ac
tion of men who ..believed they were
acting for principle, and he said that
while he had no definite check on the
number who walked out, his advices
were assuring that the number was
above 150.
, Those who wished to support the ac
tion, of the unions in sending a com
mittee to Washington were requested
to come forward and leave their con
tributions. Meanwhile speeches on the
matter at issue were made by a num
ber of members . of " the-- organization.
It was explained from the platform
that the trouble resulted over the
choice of a lady to sponsor the ship
"Welka". ; After the launching of the
first shin from the yards, the company
decided it was .contended,' that the
secondship launched should "be spon
sored by the wife, daughter or other
near relative of some man who had
worked on the ship, the selection to
be made by the shop committee. This
decision was made known to men in
a letter from the company, which
was read at the meeting. Acting on
this notification, the shop committee,
after a canvas of the different crafts
engaged oh the ship, selected 14 names,
from which the name of Mrs. Harry
Pel Campo was chosen by ; lot.; t Mr.
Del Campo was a foreman , engaged
on the ship. He sent for hi-wife to
come from Philadelphia for the
launching. i '. - '-
It was stated by the speakers that
upon .the selection of Mrs Del Cam
" o, 'the company suddenly - changed
I'm mind and selected the wife of Pres.
Sweeney ' f or the , honor, and ' that Mr.
Iel Campo was invited to c withdraw
fhs wife's name as .aicandidate-Mr.
Del Campo took the position that tho
matter, was .. not,, in his hands but in
the hands of the' shop, committee, and
fce refused to take", the action" indicat
ed to him. Thereupon, it was stated
he was notified that his 'services wou."C

rany. .-' r" -v, - ;-'";'..

Bill Seeking - to Place Re
. spohsibility . on , Probation
Officers is Pending in
- Tallahassee, ', May 1 15. Whether or not
the office of state labor Inspector should
bi abolished and the needs for child labor
legislation in ' Florida. wer ' discussed In
the senate when the bill by Senator Carl-tpn-on
the subject was reached .on second
reading . with amendments recommend 1
by the ., organized . ' labor committee of
which' Senator Russell, is chairman.
The " bill provides . 'for raising the age
limit to sixteen years, and 'increasing the
salary of v the state ' labor inspector six
hundred dollars," paying him $2,400 a year
instead of 1,800 as at present. It also
provides for an assistant labor inspector
at a salary of ji.SOO. The amendment by
the committee, - which Senator - RusseU
t'aid was unanimously recommended, abol
ishes the state labor' Inspector and , a:s
proposed assistant and : places the in
spection' in , the hand's of the probation
officers of the state. The bill does not
affect towns of less than 5,000 inhabitants.
The question was on the adoption of ihe
amendments, but on motion of Senator
Carlton the bill was Informally pass-ia
over for the purpose of amendment later.
Senator Carlton said that ' only four
counties had probation officers and the
passage of this bill , with . the suggestoa
amendments would greatly cripple the
work which had progressed well in ."3-
J cent;, years. He said the committee ha.1
admitted .the inspection was necessary 1y
providing that it be done, by the proba
tion officers.
Senator, Russeii said the . amendment
had been unanimously adopted by the
committee, that the original bill sought
to Taise the salary of the state labor in
spector six hundred dollars and give him
an assistant, that- the Senate itself -was
violating, the proposed law . by employing
pages, all of whom are under the ag
limit, that the probation officers couli
easily do this inspection work, that Flo, -ida
was an agricultural state and he
no crime in the boys of his town selling
the Saturday Kventng Post, which wouia
be prohibited by this act.
Senator Turner stated there had been
at least three deaths of children in the
cedar mills of his county and he had am
putated a quart of children's fingers as a
result of acidents in tnese pencil facto
ries. (He is a physician.. Indemnity
Insurance would not protect a child undor
sixteen years, he said, .and he .wanted to
amend the bill to apply-to every county
and city in the state. He asked that .13
til' be temporarily passed for tne purpose
of amendment at a later date. .
"Childhood is not the producing period
of life," said Senator Carlton, "and if
we interfere with this work we will find
out later that the working of-the citizen
in youth has decreased his usefulness in
maturity, and we shall regret it."

That the American Greeks are whole

Wilson, and the others of the American
representatives - at; the peace confer
ence, with reference to the Italian issue
and that they stand ready to face,
with the Americans and the allies, any
emergency that might arise, in that
connection, is the sentiment voiced by
leading Greeks, who are much inter
ested in an international movement
protesting against suppression of the
national will of the Greeks of the
Dodocanesus and Northern Spirus.
The movement has already taken the
form of mass meetings in many of
the large cities of the United States

ujtil the recent war were for many

into the hands of the Italians, whom
it Is claimed are no more considerate

land than were the Turks.

be augmented by a mass meeting in
Pensacola at an early date at which
American born and Greek descendants

the unbearable conditions of oppres

of these lands, with the mother-country,
Greece, will be urged.
In connection with the movement
the following interesting story, sent
out from Salop ica, .after having been
verified as authentic, is being circu

and men gave lives during clash with
