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.

IN INCOME SURTAXES
Reduces Maximum Rate From 65
to 32 Per Cent and Lowers
Other Figures.
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

Hoover Announces Program Has Prac

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.

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

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

peal, was agreed upon by the Senate
Finance Committee revising the
| house revenue bill.
