Berlins Challenge
II nlfr.l l'r,.»« l.rn.r.. Wlrr.l
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept.
28. —Opening the campaign for
the second Liberty loan of $3,
--000,000,000, Secretary McAdoo
today called upon the bankers of
America to fling back the German
-hordes on the batUeflelds of
finance.
The failure of a single issue of
government bonds, McAdoo told
life American Bankers' associa
tion, would be worse for America
than a disaster upon the field of
battle.
America's forthcoming bond
issue, he said, is pitted against a
corresponding loan in Germany.
Quoting a Berlin manifesto which
boasted of a successful subscrip
tion campaign In the Teutonic em
pire, McAdoo declared:
"Let us meet that challenge by
a subscription to our second Lib
erty loan on the 27th day of Oc
tober, nine days after the close
of the German loan, which will
make clear to the German mili
tary despotism that America mar
shals not alone her brave soldier*
upon the field, her Invincible navy
on the high seas, her industries
thruout the length and breadth of
the land, but as well ht>r finan
cial resources, and that sh* is de- |
termined to use them all without
stint and regardless of sacrifice to
vindicate American rights, out
raged too frequently by German
infamies." -
Before June 30, 1918, the IT. S.
will have to raise by additional
bond Issues between 13 and 14
billions Of dollars, McAdoo said.
Approximately five billions of this
will go as loans to our allies.
The second Liberty loan, said
McAdoo, will be more attractive
to the "small man" than the first.
The new bonds will bear four per
cent Interest and will be exempt
from all taxes encept sugar-in
come, excess profits and Inherit
ance levies.
Let McAddoo Decide
Suggestions that Secretary of
the Treasury McAdoo be greeted
with a mass meeting at the Taco
ma theater Oct. 9, a meeting of
Liberty bond committeemen in
the evening at the Elks auditor
ium, and a dinner, have been sent
to McAdoo's private secretary by
Ralph S. Stacy, chairman of the
Icx-al entertainment committee,
subject to McAdoo's preferences.

MAY TIE UP SHIPYARDS
Spread of the coast shipyard
strike to Tacoma appeared certain
Friday.
The Metal Trades council, the
shipwrights' and the carpenters'
unions, In joint session Thursday
night endorsed the boycott of 10
--hour lumber by a vote of 235
to 5.
An official vote on the boycott
will be taken by the Metal Trades
council Friday night. The vote
of the shipwrights wili t>« taken
next Tuesday and that of the car
penters at their meeting next
Thursday.
Every shipyard In Tacoma, with
the exception of the big Todd
shipbuilding plant, will be affeot
ed lr_.case they refused to handle
10-hour lumber and the strike is
called. The Todd plant already
has refused to handle anything
except 8-hour lumber.

However, It was learned today
that the metal trades. In addition
to voting the lumber boycott, may

Negotiations for the new wage
scale which Is causing the diffi
culty in Seattle, have been pend
ing in Tacoma for some time, >Jt
w.i-p learned.
" The. Seaborn shipyards, the
Wright shipyards, the Tacoma
Shipbuilding Co. and Babare Bro..
all are declared to be handling
some 10-hour lumber. Officials
of the Seaborn Shipbuilding Co.
admitted Friday they might be
affected by the boycott.
Nick Babare, of the Babare
Bros, plant, declared It was so
hard ot get lumber at all now
that he'd use anything he could
get. "If I had a chance to get
lumber on which men had worked
2<uin'urw a day, I'd use It," lie
said.
The union timberworkers say
they have traced- 10-hour lumber
<o all the Tacoma shipyards ex
cept the Todd plant. Most of It
has come from outside the city,
from the B. A M. Co. at
Lake Tapps and from Ostrander.
No. St. Paul mill lumber is being
used, they say.
The demands of the shipyard
workers here probably will be
similar to- those made on the Se
attle shipyards. The employer!
will be asked to put up a $5,000
cash bond to guarantee that no
10-hour lumber will be used.
The tfmberworkers were Jubil

Anthony S. Corbiere, a Tacoi-an,

ambulance unit No. 71, soon to
go overseas, has more than one
reason for Impatience to reach

Tony, as he was known on the
university campus, hopes to Bee a
brother, a p.oilu in a machine gun
company, who has been in the
trenches three years. A few
weeks ago Tony received a letter
from umW brother, breaking a
silence of nine years. He has had
three since.
"In fact, I didn't know what he
looked like, until he sent me hie
photograph," Tony told a friend.
"The last time he wrote me he
told me he was writing amid the
noise of bursting bombs, seven
meters (24) feet from the Boches.
He had been that close for 32
days.
"My brother has been twice
wounded, once at the famous bat
tle of Verdun, at Mort Homme,
where so many men lost their
lives. There he was wounded in
the leg; another time it was In
the foot. Both wounds were
from bursting shrapnel. But he
tells me he is as good as ever.
"Wouldn't It be exciting to see
a brother you haven't seen since
you were six years old and he
was four?"

BREAD AND
MILK OUGHT
TO TUMBLE!!
Tacoma bakers today are left with no
shadow of an excuse for continuing the ,
present exorbitant price, of bread. «
Tacoma dairymen, when their association,
meets Saturday night, can't vote to raise the ]
price of milk to 15 cents a quart without de- •
liberately branding themselves as highway
robbers and purse snatchers. ;
Ilciv's a new reason why:
Pacific coast flour prices for family put- ;
cuts wer cut to .+K>.2(> i barrel wholesale at
I meeting of Pacific ('oast millers in Port- j
land Thursday night, at which T. B. Wilcox,
chairman of the millers' committee <>f the
food sdministration on the Pacific coast, ;
presided. The new price is $8.60 below the ;
high mark set several months ago, and $1.40
less than the price at the time the govern
ment announced a hasic wheat price of ;
$2.05 a bushel.
A reduction of $3 a ton in the price of mill
feeds Mas also announced.
Tacoma bakers have been giving "the
high price of flour" as an excuse for charg
ing us 15 cents for a 22-ouiice loaf of bread,
while Los Angeles has been able to get a 24
--ounce loaf for 11 cents, and England an even
lower rate.
Tacoma dairymen have been complaining
of "the advancing price of feed," in boost
ing Tacoma milk prices to eight quarts for
a dollar and planning a still further Increase
to 15 cents a quart.
NO MORE EXCUSES WILL GO. THE
BOTTOM HAS DROPPED OUT OF
THEM. THE TACOMA PUBLIC WILL
NOT BELIEVE THEM.
in the light of the prices set by the millers
there is no decent choice \efjt for the bakers'
association but to cut the price of bread, i
There is no decent choice for the dairymen
Who control prices here but to lower, rather j
than raise, milk prices.
Watch them—these dairymen and bakers
both. By their actions now they will have
to show whether they are Tacoma's enemies
or friends; whether they are loyal citisens
or robbers; whether they are backing Uncle 1
Sam or the kaiser. !
