WHETS OF U. S.'
M W MS . BY WILLIAM T. ELLIS (Special Dispatch to The Journal and the Chi cago Daily News —Copyright, 1921.) WASHINGTON. Dec. 1. —An eastern proverb runs, “you cheat me once, shame on you; cheat me twice, sflame on me.’’ Americans who are troubled by a confusion of rumors concerning recent diplomatic maneuvers at Washington may be reassured that whatever may or may not have been “put over” On the United States at Paris this coun try will not be caught napping in the present conference. In the light of widespread intima tions, mostly unwarranted, that cer tain foreign delegations are playing a subtle, mysterious game which will outwit America’s broad purposes, there is evidence of the existence of considerable uneasiness through out the country lest the experience of Paris be repeated. . There is not the slightest danger of anything of the sort. The big four of the American con ference organization of veteran men of affairs, understood the sinu ous and subterranean ways of the old diplomacy, even though they do not walk them. * These men are than an ag gregation of stars; they are giving a superb exhibition of team play. The discerning saw this when at the opening session of the confer ence, the president deliberately agreed to “blanket” his own great speech by the sensational pro posals of Chairman Hughes. In the nature of things the secretary of state with his straight-forward, fear less and practical propositions, is oftenest to the fore: /But he is put there and sustained by the whole team. But that is not all of the Ameri can outfit. The three men from this country who had the most extensive and important personal relations with the highest officials of the foreign powers during the war are General Pershing, Mr. Hoov er and General Dawes. They all frequently had to come to grips with eminent representatives of the al lied nations when these tried to use America in ways that did not seem to them either right or reasonable. Every one of the three could tell tales of hectic sessions of plain ■peaking when the European poten-. tates were outfaced and defeated by these forthright Americans. Still greater tribute to the size of the three is that, despite all disputes and disagreements, they re main sincere friends of the allied nations and leaders. All that these veterans of many diplomatic bat tles with European officialdom have in their possession, of experience and wisdom, is day by day at the service of the American delegation. On the whole, nobody need lose any sleep over the state of Ameri can preparedness for this battle of peace. '? ■ Ten Railroads Confer ♦ With Commerce Board On Foreign Contracts WASHINGTON, Dec. I.—Repre sentatives of ten American railroads today conferred with the interstate commerce committee of the ship ping to the termination of contracts x entered into between American railroads and foreign ship ping lines. Commissioner Frederick L. Thompson, of the shipping board, presided, assisted by Commissioners Edward Q. Plummer and Meyer Lisner. ' According to figures compiled by the interstate commerce commis sion, 2,500,000 tons of freight was interchanged between American rail roads and foreign shipping firms both for inward and outward bound* traffic and cargoes in 1920. The shipping board feels that this busi ness should be diverted to American merchant marine, and calls the con ference for the purpose of reaching an amicable agreement with the railroads. While no definite plan was announced, it is believed that the railroads will be asked to abro gate their agreements some of which may be terminated after a notice of a year or* more. The railroads represented at the conference were: The Chicago, Mil waukee, and St. Paul; Baltimore and Ohio; Atlanta, Birmingham and At lantic; Pennsylvania; Northern Cen tral; Southern; Mobile and Ohio: Grand Trunk; Great Northern and Boston and Albany.

The allies, it is held by French officials, have full authority under' the terms of the treaty of Versailles to take Germany’s affairs in hand and to administer her resources on a. manner similar to that pursued by the T urk ish debt commission. Former President Poincare, who is much talked of as the probable suc cessor of Premier Briand, in the next governmental change, recalls in his weekly reviews of the political situation that the treaty of Ver sailles gives the allies the right, in case Germany defaults, to control her customs dutjes, taxes, exporta tions and coal production. He says this must be demanded if the repar-1 ations commission thinks it is obliged to give Germany further , time. I The negotiations understood to be going on now in London between the British government and repre sentatives from Germany are regard ed in French official circles as a re prisal for the alleged separate ac tion of France in making an agree ment with the Turkish nationalist government at Angora. Much anx iety is expressed lest France should find herself faced with comp’ete ac cord between Great Britain and Ger many. !• was declared iny arrangement arrived at by Great Britain in the absence of French representatives would be resented. The situation of the entente is regarded fimong French government officials as exceedingly precar'Cus, in vjew of what they describe as nerv ousness shown by Great Britain and Italy. Carolina Farmers Capture Fugitive AUGUSTA, Ga., Dec. I.—John Lacy, 17-yeas-old negro, for whom Georgia and Soulh Carolina posses have been combing the state border since last Friday, was captured early last night by three South Carolina farmers near “Jackson ville,” a negro settlment four miles from Langley, S. C. He was brought here and lodged in the county jail to await trial on charges of attempt ed attack, upon aij eight-year-old white girl of I)his city. and then let the governor sit astride his travel partner, “Pet,” for a short time. Then Gulick was j)ff on his journey again. He has covered 2,700 miles of his 13,000-mile trip. ' The outdoors’ is the place,” says Gulick. “Pet and I are great pals.

He was reared on a ranch in Wyoming, and looks it. < GEHMfiiy PEOPLE SEE imwwE ■ I BY GEORGE WITTE (Special Dispatch to The Journal and the Chi cago Daily News —Copyright, 1921.) BERLIN, Germany, Dec. 1. —The ray of hope for which the whole German people has been praying to brighten the future sterns at last to have broken through the dark clouds which now have for three years hung over Germany’s political and economic situation. The news from London that upon the recom mendation of German, as well as English financial experts the Brit ish government has emphatically come out in favor of granting Ger many a two or three-iyear moratori um has been received here with uni versal rejoicing. The fact that British passports were granted recently to Hugo Stinnes, Walter Rathenau and Bank er Mendelsohn when only a few months ago they were denied per mission to enter England is general ly, accepted as an indication that Britain and in a secondary way the United States are alarmed over the financial catastrophe threatening Germany. Still another point upon which the newspapers are laying stress is the sudden rise in the value of the mark yesterday from 275 to 239 to the dollar. This sudden turn in Ger many’s fortunes is being attributed in part to the developments at the Washington conference, where an inclination has been manifested to give Germany a brand-new deal as the result of investigations made by British and American experts. Germany is looking forward with great expectation and some anxiety to learn what the attitude of France will be towards this new and start ling development in the internation al situation. Public opinion does not expect smooth sailing so far as Premier Briand is concerned, but it is hoped that the pressure which Britain and the United States may bring to bear op France, and espe cially the influence of the United States in the matter of the war debts, will result eventually in her giving up her opposition to the moratorium. The chief motive behind the plan Is said to be an urgent desire on the part of Britain to halt the flow of German paper money, which, ac cording to British banking and in dustrial circles is beginning to ex ert an unwholesome influence on the international industrial situa tion. Business Men Plan To Take Charge of Lexington Railroad ATHENS, Ga., Dec. I.—Several Athens and Oglethorpe county busi ness men have under consideration the taking over of the Lexington Terminal railrcad, provided the com pany is wiling to lease or sell the road. Some of the Lexington business men paid a visit to the Athens Chahmber of Commerce, asking their aid in preventing the discontinuance of the runnipg of the trains on this road. An application for the discontin uance of the service was made to the interstate commerce commission, but the men interested had much rather buy or lease the road than to see it scrapped. The committee, representing the chamber of commerce of Lexington, was composed of the following men: G. A. Barron, C. R. Crawford and Earl Reynolds. The hearing will be held in At lanta, December 14. The Georgia railroad bought the Lexington branch from the McWhor ter estate in 1898. The railroad claims that it is operated at a loss. The people of Oglethorpe are very much aroused over the possibility of the road being scrapped. Millionaire Burglar PARIS.—M. Ernest Boitier, the Orleans millionaire who turned burglar “just for the fun of the thing” and was caught robbing a grocery, was given the option by the court of going to prison for three years or under going treatment in a sanitarium for Insani ty. Boitier chose the sanitarium. NEW RAILROAD LABORRULES TO SAVE ROADS HUGE SUMS 400,000 Men Affected by Order Effective Thursday. Supplants Agreement En tered Into in 1920 ■ CHICAGO, Dec. I.— (By the Asso ciated Press.) —New working rjules for the 400,000 railroad shopmen, including at least two important changes, were handed down today by the United States railroad labor board. The decision supplanted the agreement entered into by the em ployes and the United States rail road administration, September 20, 1919. The rules were passed unanimous ly by the board, including the vote of A. O. Wharton, of the labor group, who cast a dissenting vote upon the last wage cut. One of the most important changes was the permitting of apprentices to do certain repair work formerly restricted to jourheymen in that craft. Another change provided for representation of minorities in the presentation of grievances to meet the contention of the railroads that old national agreements practically forced a closed shop on the railroad. It will result in an estimated an nual payroll saving of $50,000,000 to the railroads and form the basis upon which adjudication of all fu ture wage disputes between rail roads and their employes will be based. The new rules become effective Thursday, December 1, and take jurisdiction over approximately 400,- 000 men immediately, although a still larger number will be affected when the normal traffic conditions are restored. Ear-reaching changes in the rules, which supplant the national agree ment made during federal control, were designed to afford a basis for permanent stability in the railroad shops of the country and were de clared -by members of the labor board to be the most important work yet done by the board and of much greater sigiyficance than any decision in the past, even including wage scale adjustments. Expect Economies Large economies are expected to result from revision of the classi fication rules, which were made more elastic, and hereafter will per mit members of certain crafts to do minor jobs previously done by members of other crafts. Statisti cians attached to the labor board estimated that economies in opera tion, increased efficiency and larger output, would approximate $50,000,- 000 a year. Provision for the representation of minorities who may have griev ances is another important item of the new rules. Under the national agreement, negotiation for employes was placed almost wholly in the hands of labor organizations, with the result that the railroads and many Industrial and civic institu tions declared that the agreement forced a closed union shop on the roads. Non-union men found it im practicable to attempt to bring their grievances before the board and as the rules worked out, union officials handled the cases, taking their prec edent from the national agreement negotiations in which union officials acted for the employes in drawing up the agreement under federal con trol. “The principle of the open shop established by the new rules,” a statement by board members said, “will, in fact, be more theoretical than practical at the present time, since a large majority of the rail road shops are unionized and the existing unions are recognized by the board and by the transportation act as representative of the major ity. “Most of the older working rules, functioned by the experience of years, are preserved in full effect. Many of the more rigid rules, how ever, were considerably relaxed in favor of the roads, although the rec ognized rights of the men are fully protected and the principle of col lective bargaining and union recog nization is retained, as contemplated by the transportation.” The rules controversy dstfes back to May 1, 1920, .when the railroads emerged from government control. Strenuous objections to the national agreement were made in a hearing which began January 10, 1921. After several .months of testimony, the rules were referred back to the in dividual roads with instructions to negotiate such new rules as they could with their employes to replace the federal government rules. Rules More Elastic Numerous rules were thus agrecyl upon on individual roads, but on no road was it possible to draft an entire new set. The rules disagreed upon were then sent back to the la bor board, and the rules promul gated today will replace any such rules not agreed upon by the roads and their employes. In any case where a rule has been agreed upon by the carrier and its employes, that rule governs, everr though the labor board rule may be entirely differ ent. The majority of the changes ef fected by the new rules is in the classification of the work to be per formed by the various crafts. Al most without exception these classi fications are made more elastic. Un der previous agreements with the shop crafts, including the national agreement, it has been the custom to define in detail the various types of work belonging to each craft. The carriers have complained that the national agreement set up in such minute detail the classifica tion of duties that work not requir ing specialized skill in any craft was assigned exclusively to a par ticular craft. For example work not requiring a mechanic’s skill was as signed to a skilled mechanic, thus making efficient and economical op eration impossible, according to the railroads. The rules effective today broaden the scope of each craft’s work. The machinist working on running re pairs may connect or disconnect any wiring, coupling or pipe connections necessary to repair machinery or equipment. This work was previous ly assigned to electricians and sheet metal workers only. Under the new rul«s, engineers, firemen and cranesmen are not pro hibited from making such repairs to equipment on the lines of the road as they are qualified to per form. The new rules thus allow train operatives to perform repair work even though it is ordinarily considered shop mechanic’s work. Boiler makers’ helpers under the new rules are given the job of re moving and replacing grates. Un der the national agreement* all grate rigging work was assigned to jour neymen boiler makers. The classification of the work of the sheet metal workers, electrical workers and car men has been changed to gillow some of the work previously performed by them ex clusively to be done by their helpers and to mechanics in other crafts, where the needs of the service re quire it. Under the national agree ment car men were exclusively as signed to wrecking crews. Under the new rules, wrecking crews, ex clusive of engineers, will be com- posed of carmen, where sufficient men are available, but when ed, men of any class may be taken as additional members of wrecking crews. Another important change affect ing car men is that which allows common laborers to dismantle wood en freight cars hereafter. Under the national agreement, only quali fied carpenters were allowed to do this work. Aboirt 68 per cent of the country’s freight cars are built of wood. The new* rule will permit employes getting $3.25 to $5.00 a day to do work previously required to be done by car men receiving $5.84 a day. New Apprentice Type An entirely new rule promulgat ed by the board, for the first time, creates a new type of apprentice to be known as “special apprentice.” Previously there have been only two kinds of apprentices in the skilled shop crafts, regular and, helpers’ ap prentices. Regular apprentices are youths entering the service between the ages of 16 and 21 years-and serv ing four years’ apprenticeship, and helper apprentices are those appren tices selected from the ranks of the helpers. Special apprentices are to be selected from young men between the ages of 18 and 26, who have had a technical school education, and they will be required to serve only three years’ apprenticeship before becoming journeymen mechanics. Rules which required certain standards of force and equipment to be maintained for doing certain kinds of work have been modified and some discontinued, thus elimi nating the expense of maintaining unnecessary men on the rolls. Other rules have been changed to allow the use of forces assigned to particular classes of work on other work, when there is no work of their particular class to be performed. Many of the rules are highly tech nical in character. Much time was spent on the rules regarding electri cal railroads, which at present apply only to a few roads like the Pennsyl vania and New York Central) but which will become of increasing im portance as the electrification of the steam lines proceeds. The six shop crafts, employes In volved are the carmen, sheet metal workers, machinists, blacksmiths, boilermakers and electrical workers. They were represented at the rules hearings by the following organiza tions: Brotherhood Railway Car men of America, International Alli ance of Amalgamated Sheet Metal Workers, International Association of Machinists, International Broth erhood of Blacksmiths, Drop Forgers and Helpers, International Brother hood of Bpilermakers, Iron Ship Builders and Helpers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. All these are af filiated with the American Federa tion of Labor and are enrolled in the Railway Employes’ Department of that organization. The national agreement, supplant ed Thursday by the new rules, was entered into with the employes by the United States raliroad adminis tration September 20, 1919. From the first it was strongly criticised by the railroad managements and others because they contended it im posed unecohomic methods of opera tion on the railroads, limited the dis cretion and control of the manage ment and greatly increased the cost of operation. The railroads also complained that they had no voice in making the national agreement which they declared was "wished on them” by the railroad adminis tration. The employes have main tained that a very large part of the national agreement had been put into effect on various railroads, prior to federal control, by the voluntary act of the managements, and that it fairly represented current enlighten ed thought of the carriers and em ployes as to working conditions and rules. . In two previous decisions the board disposed of twenty-four shop craft rules mainly concerning over time pay. Thursday’s decision prac tically completes the rules for these crafts, with the exception of a few minor matters on which an agree ment is probable. These the board has referred back to the roads and the employes for settlement by them. No Poison Is Found In Carolina Well; Water Contaminated COLUMBIA, S. C.» Dec. I.—Abso lutely no trace of poison was found in the water of the well on the Lee plantation at Beldoc, S. C., accord ing to a report frdm pr. R. F. Par ker, of Charleston. It was claimed the sudden deaths of several members of the family were caused by poison placed in the well from which the family drinking water was drawn. Farm animals also were made sick, it was reported. The report shows that the water of the well was greatly contami nated. There was a large amount of larvae, but these proved to be mosquitos. The water was very dirty, and the health authorities have advised relatives of the Lee fam ily to this effect. The deaths are said by the health authorities here to have been possibly due to influ enza or some other similar disease, but could not have been due to a deposit of mineral poison in the well. At the time so the Beldoc tj-agedy, Mrs. Lee and three of her children died. Mr. Lee was taken to Augusta in a critical condition and his con dition remains unchanged. Income From Liberty Bonds Would Not Be Taxed by New Law WASHINGTON, Dec. 1. —The in come from all holdings in Liberty bonds and other government obliga tions by corporations are exempt from taxation under the new reve nue law, senators and experts who framed the measure stated today.
