TRY TO BELITTLE BREAK IN HARMONY JJnion Officials Explain Why Separate . Ballots Were Sent to Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen. 3 Chicago, Aug. 29. An apparent break in the harmony among the rail road brotherhoods and the switchmen's Union of North America in connection with the taking of strike ballots to the membership to-day was niiminized " by union officials. . 'Strike ballots were mailed to B,"0,000 railroad workers yesterday and to-day, but the ballot of the brotherhood ot railroad trainmen, comprising about l.tO,0tH) workers, went on a separate sheet. The trainmen . withdrew because, their officers explained, the ballot drafted by the other four organizations "did not in our opinion, contain an lm r partial and unbiased recital of all that is involved, nor did it convey the as surance that the wishes of the men if against working reduced wages, would determine the question, and that they would be permitted to leave the serv ice." The joint ballot declared that if the members vote to reject the wage reduc turn it wan understood they would be permitted to withdraw from the service of their companies unless satisfactory settlement can be reached under the laws of the organization." The wage reductions authorized by the I'nited States railroad labor board In July averaged about 12 per cent an estimated ravin? to the railroad of about $400,000,000. Some union leaders asserted to-day that in their opinion it wa not the wage regulation, but working rules and Agreements that would be the final bone of contention and particularly the time and a half for overtime clause recently restricted by the railroad la bor board.

Dublin, Aug. 29 (By the Associated Press). The members of the Irish re publican cabinet gathered at the Man sion house here this morning coming direct from the country where they spent the week end, but, according to an official report no formal meeting was held. Kamonn De Valera. the republican eader, did not remain at the Mansion house long, spending lees than half an hour with his colleague. It was stated that nothing could be expected regard- ng the reply of the cabinet to rremier Lloyd George's latest communication until Tuesday at the earliest and prob ably until Wednesday. The delay in sending the reply to the latest message from Llovd George ha caused much curiosity here. It U due, it is thought, to the refusal of the republican cabinet to he rushed. New from London this morning said the British government had deckled upon a general election should the Iritdi republican cabinet refuse it offer. Should this occur, although it is not expected here that it will become neces sary, the Sinn Fein wonld nomimtte a candidate in each constituency for the imperial parliament under the home rule act, and as these candidates would undoubtedly be elected, could put this forward as really being the result of a plebiscite on the British terms. The disturbances in British India are being made much of here and the belief is expressed in high Sinn Fein quarters that England will find herself so busy there she will be willing to leave Ireland alone.

George V. Mc Laughlin, state superintendent of banks, to-day confirmed reports that the National Thrift Bond corporation, which has $700,000 worth of thrift bonds outstanding with workers in southern New England and elsewhere who purchased them by weekly pay envelope deductions, had placed its affairs in his hands August 1. The corporation is insolvent, he said but it deposited a group of govern ment, state aud municipal securities in a trust fond at the Equitable Trust company to secure the thrift bonds, and if the holders of these wait until their maturity, between 1943 and 1954, they should receive the full face value. At this time, Mr. McLaughlin asserted, the market price of the securities averages PO per cent below par. The thrift bondholders, said to lum ber 11,000 workers, are scattered through the industrial regions extend ing from Pennsylvania to Massachu setts with others at Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago. Included among the cities where employes of industrial plants invested part of their pay in the thrift bonds are Albany, Troy, Buffalo. Niag ara Falls, and parts of Long' Island in New York, Bridgeport, Beacon tails. New Haven and Norwich, Conn., and Providence and Central Falls, R. I. Several prominent Wall street men are directors of the National Thrift Bond corporation, which began bus iness in 1917. Mr. McLaughlin stated he had been informed by lngulls Kimball, who con ceived the corporation as a source of capital aud an instrument for inculcat ing the saving habit among working men and women that many industrial leaders had agreed to relieve their em ployes of their bonds so that they would not sutler any losses.

People Occupying Automobiles Had Trying Experiences. Numerous automobile accidents of Saturday and Sunday in the vicinity of Barre have afforded the local garages work enotigh to keep them working to the limit until the next week end. Though in almost every instance the cars were damaged considerably, in no case was any of the occupants serious ly injured. Two autos collided yester day at Dewey park, without serious casualties to either the machines or the people. A gray Overland roadster, reported to have left Barre Saturday night for Springfield, Mass., at pres ent lies, in the center of a mass of pokes and telephone pole remains a hort distan.ee up the Graniteville road, having lost its right rear wheel as well as a considerable amount of its dignity. At the three mads in Graniteville a imilar accident occurred on Saturday. The auto, reported as belonging to ean I heratilt of BMrre 1 own, managed to ascend about eight feet of pole be fore it could be coaxed back to earth again. Though the car was somewhat of a mess the people escaped with nothing more serious than a severe jolting. The largest, and probably the most thrilling accident of the week end oc curred in Williamston-n gulf Satur day afternoon. A B'ord, turning out past a truck, is alleged to have collided with a Buick touring car coming from the opposite direction. Another car, which wa following the Buiek very closely, was unable to stop in time, and added it own body to the pile. AH three cars were badly damaged, but fortunately none of the people was in jured. The names of the drivers and occupants are not known. A.F.OF L. KEEPS ITS HANDS OFF Will Not Mix In Dispute Regarding the 7 'lroad Wage Redu in BUT WOULD vND AID IN AN p GENCY Decision To 'g told Aloof Was Madet Atlantic City Conference Atlantic City, N. J., Aug. 29. The executive council of the American Fed eration of Labor has decided to take no action regarding railroad wage reductions. Members said to-day, however, that the council stood ready to assemble in special conference and give any aid possible should it be requested to do so by any of the organizations of the union railroad workers. The council, in accordance with in structions of the Denver convention, is working on a plan to bring about "pub lic ownership and democratic control" of the nation's railroad system. But nothing definite in this regard can be" be expected for some months, labor leaders say, as it is impossible to ar range conferences with chiefs of the railroad unions now when they are oc- cupied with the wage reduction situa tion. Investigation of salaries bemir naid lo.n.mu c.iwMiioei is oeing made by the council with a view to bringing pressure to bear to have these salaries reduced "until other wage earners on railroads are paid a wage sufficient to keep them in decency and comfort." Details of the proposed investigation into the use of workers' savings by banks and insurance companies wera announced to-day. The council pro poses to inquire into the "present credit system of the country" and to study the Kenyon rural credit bill. Consider ation is also to be given to a proposal to organize the proxy voting power of workers who hold policies in mutual insurance companies.
