QUICK RELIEF V, -V) v55 WAGE PARLEY : AT WHITE HOUSE iPresidentWilson Receives Heads ! cf Brotherhoods. WOULD END LABOR DISPUTES Railroad Wage Adjustment Board Said to Be the President's Plan For Settling Controversies Over Wage Increases Congress Likely to Take Up Question of Ownership and Operation of Railways. Washington, Nov. 22. President Wilson's plan to solve the demands of the railway brotherhoods for wage Increases is a wage adjustment board. It is said acceptance of this arbi tration principle by the employes' leaders at the White House confer ence today would stave off drastic legislation the president will ask of congress if all other plans fail to pre vent a tieup of war transportation. The wage-fixing board, according to the president's advisers, will b modeled after the shipyard and can tonment agreement between tho American Federation of Labor and the government. The decision of the board would be binding. The rail roads have accepted this principle. If the brotherhoods also agree to it, there can be no nation-wide strike. Congress will meet a demand for virtual ownership and operation of the American railways when it con venes a week from next Monday. The pressure will come from the people of the nation who are dependent upon the roads for the transportation or of the neoeesarles of life as well as from the country's great Industries. Whether definite action will result depends on the administration. It is understood that the president has an open mind on the question as to whether more drastic measures must be taken to increase the effectiveness of the railroads. He realizes that the committee of railway executives who have been co-ordinating the country' systems since the war commenced has done s wonderful work. The organized labor leaders are ex pected to favor complete government ownership. W. G. Lee, president of the Brotherhood of Trainmen, has al ready publicly declared that govern men control is the only remedy for labor troubles. He and other leaders' believe. It Is understood, that such control would allow the general wage advances which the majority of the! railroad workers now demand. Do you get up at night?

WEEKLY WAR REVIEW From Russia the latest dispatches report Premier Kerensky In flight, jafter having been defeated by the Bol ;sheviki (radical Socialists) and de 'eerted by the greater part of his own Jofficers and men. One report attrib utes the premier's defeat to the inter vention of Lettish forces, 30,000 'Strong, on the side of the Bolsheviki. j The Bolshevild are in control of the Russian capital and apparently in I control of Moscow, where the provi sional government's forces are re ported to have been penned within the Kremlin under artillery bombard ment. Unconfirmed reports say the bombardment was followed by the ar rangement of a truce between the hos tile factions. During the week the Italian armies have been making a heroic stand against the Austro-German masses thrown against them in. desperate at tacks along the line of the Pave river and in the mountainous region from the Piave westward to the edge of tiie Trentino district. The river line has not been broached at any point, while the thrust of the Austrians southward from the hills in an attempt to drive a wedge through to the plains behind the Piave line is making slow prog ress. It Is now more than a week since the Italians, retreating from the Tag liamento, crossed to the west bank of the Piave and took up their defensive positions behind it. The German com mand lost no time in attempting to force a passage of the stream and the enemy efforts were pressed on a scale of increasing intensity during all the week. Near the Adriatic the water barrier to any Austro-German ad vance toward Venice, raised by the opening of the flood gates into the swampy region, is being reinforced by the work of the army artillery and the guns of Italian warships on the Adri atic. Military operations in the other war theaters were on a comparatively small scale. The most important move was made in Flanders by the British, who pushed further north on the Goeburg spur, northwest of Passa chendaele, capturing a strongly forti fied redoubt known as Vocation farm.
