R. SHOPMEN | VOTE TO STRIKE Mil Defer Action Until New Work- ■ ing Rules Are Passed on by Labor Board. . 3IG FOUR GOING TO HELP.' Jnions Demand Labor Board Include All Remaining Rules —Juiy Wage Cut Rejected Majority for Quitting on That Question, . | Chicago.—Railroad shopmen belong- j .ng to the six federated shop crafts anions have voted to strike against :he general railroad wage reduction of July 1, 1921, but will defer any action inril the promulgation now pending of working rules by the Uuited States Railroad Labor Board, when another vote will be taken on acceptance or re jection of the rules. This announcement was officially pale by B. M. Jewell, head of the shop crafts' organization, at a mass meet ;ug of Chicago simp workers. Belief that a stronger fight could be made if a strike is called, with preser vation of the working rule as one of :he goals, led to the decision to with hold a strike call for the present, Mr. Jewell said. He and other speakers counseled the men to wait until the entire wage and rules situation w r as before them rather than rush into a strike, which Mr. Jewell declared the railroad management desired. “We can make a real fight on the rules proposition, when we might not have the full support of other branches of railway employees on a wage fight alone,” Mr. Jewell said. “If we want to protect our best interests we must wait until the time is opportune. But if the Labor Board releases all the re maining rules to be acted upon at one time, then we will have the whole mat ter before us. We will need only one vote —to accept or reject the rules —to determine what will be done.” This announcement was greeted with applause and questioners jumped up iu all parts of the hall to press for fur ther details. Answering one question, Mr. Jewell asserted that tiie shop crafts would have the co-operation of other organizations, including the Big Four Brotherhoods, if a strike were called, and urged his audience to pre pare for action. The strike vote, completed August 1, .was announced as showing a con stitutional majority against the wage reduction which went into effect July 1. This was tiie first official confirma tion of the result, which has been ru mored for some time. Condemnation of the operations of the Labor Board and of its decisions was voiced by all speakers. Mr. Jewell charged that the railroads were at tempting t use the board to take an unfair advantage of the industrial sit uation. The board's method of draft ing rules to supplant the national agreement, a wartime measure under which the employees work at present, was asserted to be impractical, be cause only 7 of the 186 rules had been substituted. Mr. Jewell said he would demaud of the board that “for once it meet a sit uation in a practical way" and an nounce the remaining rules simulta neously instead of piecemeal. “When the board announces the substitute rules, our committee will tke a bal lot,” Mr. Jewell said. “If tiie rules are not satisfactory and the ballot says so, we will take the result to the railroads. If they refuse to grant our reasonable demauds, they will have to stand responsible and answer to the American people.” N. P. Good, chairman of the Penn sylvania System Federation of Shop Crafts, said he thought that the Penn sylvania had been selected to make a fight for the open shop as the first step ! n such an agreement amonz all railroads. The piecework system-was condemn ed by Edward Tegtmeyer, vice presi dent of the Blacksmiths’ Union. He said the attempt of the roads to re instate piecework was an aggravation to strike. “Tiie railroads have been ex pecting us to strike,” he said. “They want us to strike so they can put us out of business. We want your sug gestions and advice, and when the time comes tie your hats on. We're going-down the line, and going all the way.” Cleveland. —Cleveland members of six railroad shop crafts at mass meet ings here pledged themselves to obey the orders of the Railroad Department of the American Federation of Labor. Machinists, boilermakers, car repair men, blacksmiths, sheet metal work ers and electrical workers attended the meetings. They agreed not to engage in any sporadic or local strikes and to follow implicitly the program as arranged by the union chiefs. The fight now rests on tiie shoulders of their officers. WASHINGTON SHOULD CUT NAVY Hopes Conference of Great Powers Will Do It. Geneva, Switzerland. Admission that the forthcoming conference on tlu limitation o farmaments to be held ir Washington is better qualified to deal with naval disarmament by the pow ers than is tiie League of Nations was contained in the report made by the Commission on Disarma ment, named by the council and head ed by Rene Viviani of the French re public. LOUISVILLE BARS KU-KLUX Regard Those Who Attend Meeting as Unpatriotic Citizens. Louisville. —The Board of Public Safety “served notice on all citizens to remain away” from a proposed meeting of the Ku-Klux Klan. “Should any attempt be made to hold the meet ing in defiance of this order,” the 1 hoard’s announcement says, “any per son who attempts to attend it will be regarded as an unpatriotic citizen 1 and a law violator, and will be dealt with accordingly.” AND SOUTHERN MARYLAND ADVERTISER- UPPER MARLBOROUGH MD.. FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 30, 1921. ij — DR. H. F. BIGGAR : : I; Rockefeller’s Physician Says !; ;; He Will Reach Centur/. |[j TV.

Washington.—The Senate Finance Committee failed to finish considera tion of the revenue bill, but adopted a farreaching provision on income | surtaxes winch reduces the yield from income taxes provided in the House bill by $18,000,000 and effects a total reduction iu the income tax payments of $178,000,000. The rates agreed upon will reduce the taxes of the small tax- j payer considerably, but the greatest reduction is made in the taxes of the rich through reducing tiie maximum surtax rate to 32 per cent from 63 per cent. Tiie bill is virtually completed and 1 witli one or two exceptions follows the essential details of the House measure. Excess profit taxes are repealed as of next January. The agreements reach ed by the Senate committee depart 1 only slightly from the House proposals, except that the Finance Committee proposes a repeal of the tax on capital stock, effective July 1, 1922. Two controversial matters remain to be disposed of the proposal of Senator Smoot to offer a substitute bill, the chief provision of which is a sales tax, and tiie proposition of Senator Calder to place a heavy lax on beer. Substantial reduction in the income ; surtaxes are recommended by the Fi- j nance Committee. These reductions will mean a saving to the taxpayers of j $18,000,000 from tiie amount they j would lie required to pay under the House proposals. The greatest saving | in the Senate os well as the House j proposals comes to the wealthy through the reduction of the maximum surtax rate to 32 per tent. Those who have incomes approaching $1,000,000 and over, it is estimated by the ex perts, will have a saving of 35 to 50 per cent. i j I; WORLD NEWS IN CONDENSED FORM i; CHICAGO. —A statement was issued by Chief of Police Fitzmorris forbid- j ding an announced parade of the Ku j Klux Klan.

WORK CONFERENCE Cabinet, Industry, Labor, Busi ness and Educational Fields Have Representatives. PICK NOTABLE PERSONNEL Hoover Announces Program Has Prac tical Measures, Not Charity, for Pol icy—Group Plan Discarded in Se lection—Meetings Will be Public. Washington.—Announcement of the names of men and women who have ac cepted President Harding’s invitation to take part in a national unemploy ment conference here was made by Secretary Hoover. The list includes Secretaries Hoover j and Davis, Julius Barnes of Duluth, i Samuel Gompers, Charles M. Schwab ; and John L. Lewis of the Mine Work ers. The three women are Ida Tarbell of New York. Mary Van Kleeck of New York, connected with the Russell Sage Foundation, and Elizabeth Chris tian of Chicago, an officer of tiie Na tional Women’s Trade Union League. Hoover has been appointed by Presi dent Harding as Chairman of the con ference, which, it was said, would at once dissolve Itself into special com mittees for the formulation of definite plans for submission to the conference as a whole. These committees, Hoover asserted, would no doubt seek co operation from other representatives of labor, employers and civic bodies in j the formulation of their views. “In naming the members of the con ference,” Hoover said, “it has been the desire of the President to secure geo graphic representation, and at the same time have regard to the different elements of the community who are in terested and can be helpful in the problems, without any attempt at pro portional or particular groups. “Those of experience in those indus tries where there is the largest degree of unemployment have been called upon in larger proportion than from trades where there Is less unemploy ment difficulty. It was impossible to include representation of the whole i of some fifty trade groups in the con i fereuce and hold its size within work able limits.” An economic advisory committee of twenty was appointed in advance of | the conference and. Hoover stated, has j been at work on the preparation of unemployment data and upon a work ing program for the conference. This committee, lie added, will be among the special committees to be appointed by the conference. Secretary Davis also has been co- j operating in formulating the confer ence plans, he said, and has been di recting renewed survey of unemploy ment throughout the country for the • use of the conferees. + + + + + + 'M , + + 4 , 4 , + + + 'H' 4* + + HOME MADE “WINE” + + CANNOT HAVE KICK + t | + + + Washington.—Warning that the + j + making of intoxicating “home 4* j + brew” is illegal was issued 4* j + by Prohibition Commissioner 4- |4* Haynes.

MuCKLMXrGOir' TRIAL FOR MURDER . I Manslaughter Charge Laid Aside by Prosecutor in Case Against Comedian. San Francisco.—ln the presence of a big and Intensely interested audience D strict Attorney Mat hew Brady an nounced in police Judge Lazarus’s courtroom that Roscoe (“Fatty”) Ar buckle, motion picture comedian, would be tried for murder, and not manslaughter, in connection with the death of Virginia Rappe, screen ac tress, as the supposed result of a party in the actor’s rooms. The determination of the District attorney to proceed to trial on the murder charge was announced just be fore tiie court proceedings began. It | was reached after a series of confer ences with his staff, and his reasons I therefore were set forth in a statement which he issued after the court ses sion. Through the prosecutor’s action in deciding to stand by the murder warrant sworn out by Mrs. Bambiua Maude Delmont Instead of the man slaughter indictment found by the I grand Jury, Arbuckle must remain In ! his cell without bail privilege. | Arbuckle’s attorneys had made every | preparation to have the comedian re- I leased on ball. Five thousand dollars j in cash Imd beer, deposited with the Police Department for immediate use if Brady had decided to act on the manslaughter charge, or if at the con clusion of the police court preliminary examination of the case had taken j such a turn as to warrant them in applying to the Superior Court for the prisoner’s release on ball on the man slaughter charge, a matter, which would rest in the discretion of the court. But the police court hearing was continued and Arbuckle can en tertain no hope of release during that time. Arbuckle had uo advance informa tion on the prosecutor’s decision. He did not hear it until the same moment j that the hundreds of strangers who formed a wriggling mass of humanity in the courtroom heard it. ij LATEST EVENTS AT WASHINGTON ij 7j**w**************l Service costs absorb 49 cents of every dollar the consumer pays for gooda and commodities, says Representa tive Sidney Anderson, Chairman of the Joint Congressional Commission of Agricultural Inquiry. This com-, mission, which has been studying for many months the problems con fronting farmers and the consuming public, is about to recommend to Congress remedial legislation, having found that the temporary farmers’ tariff has done little to better the conditions of the farmers of the country. It is said that other measures are necessary. A spirit of conciliation on the part of the great powers which will partici pate in the international conference in Washington is becoming apparent through the exchanges taking place between them with reference to the agenda. Major General Charles T. Menoher, who has been chief of the army air service since 1918, asked Secretary of War Weeks to reliev him from that office and assign him to command troops in the field. This is the di rect outgrowth of dissension and friction which has prevailed in the army air service. Agitation for open sessions at the com ing disarmament congress is to be resumed in the Senate as soon as Congress reconvenes. Senator Har rison, of Mississippi, said that he would introduce his “open sessions” measure. President Harding has found support among the ranks of the World War veterans for his statement that he was “not much concerned” about the cash bonus for rnen who suffered neither wounds nor other physical impairment, which he made in ad dressing the Fifth Division mem bers. The war department announced that the Eighth Corps area had been di rected to provide tents and other supplies for the several thousand flood sufferers of the disaster at San Antonio, Tex. Retention of freight and passenger transportation taxes at half their present rates and those on express shipments and oil pipe ' nes at their present rates for another year and continuation of many miscellaneous taxes, which the house voted to re peal, was agreed upon by the Senate Finance Committee revising the | house revenue bill.
