Washington, D. C.; Aug. 17 (By the Associated Press). President Harding to-day derided to defer his address to Congress on the industrial situation until to morrow or a later date. New York, Aug. 17 (By the Associat ed Press). Five brotherhood leaders ronrpsmtin!? the runnine trades of . -r . ra - American railroads to-day went " into formal conference to draw up a pro gram for ending of the nation-v.-ide shopmen's strike to be submitted this afternoon to executives representing railroads. ' ' The formal conference, which had been preceded by a more informal as sembly, was failed upon arrival of Wrr.n K. Stone, president of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers What would be proposed by the broth erhood chiefs, assuming the role of mediators, couTd not be learned from them when they closed the doors be hind them. ' . Representatives of the stationary trades, who were watching closely the brotherhood conference, indicated that they expected the running crafts not to suggest any compromise on the matter of seniority rights, which haa proved the big stumbling block in peace efforts thus far. While the strike leaders would not permit themselves to be quoted, they indicated that they did not expect the brotherhoods to suggest any patched up compromise to the executives, nor did they expect the brotherhoods to promise to exert their influence to get the shopmen to return if seniority rights were not guaranteed strikers. The members of the committee are Warren S. "Stone of the engineers, L. E. Sheppard of the conductors. W, X. TVk. representing President Lee of the trainmen; H. K. Robertson of the firemen and E. C. Cushcn of the switch men. Representatives of nine other Onions have arrived here to keep in touch with the conference. ', -These unions include some of the striking shop crafts, and their approval will be asked of any plan the mediating brotherhoods may agree upon with the rail executives. One possible plan by which the roads ing loyal and new employes with sen iority "preference over returning strik ers, and still effect a compromise with the shopcrafts, appeared in the mass of unofficial discussion in railway cir rles prior to the conference. Such a plan, which it was believed, would be acceptable to the crafts, was outlined by certain executives as follows: 1. That the railroads, instead of b Ing bound by the majority action of the Association of Railway Executives, be permitted to take back as many of ha strikers a needs of individual rad dictated. This would assure jobs to all the strikers on most of the roads in the. country, particularly in the southeast and throughout the west. 2. That the roads and unions scree to recognize the seniority rights of loy al employes who refused to strike. 3. That th seniority status of 're turning strikera and so-called "new men" be fixed through agreement be tween unions ana managements of in-1 dividual rosis. governed partly hv j standards of efficiency and individual employes in both classes. 4. That all pension rights be r etored to the pre-strike status. No official sponsor appeared for th't plan, however. Members of the execu tives' committee declined to discuss its merits, and tha Big Four representa tive took a similar attitude. When President Harding f,rt pro posed restoration of strikers with full seniority right, the executive reject ed the turretio-i. When the rre'xient pt forward bis second program for a rail peace, he !irtt() that the earner take be k their striking b-r irtn and let the raJ mad 1Vt Hoard de. -d the str -.f ajority.

Only trains which were made up and delivered to crews outside the railroad yards were moved. - Settlement of the trouble with the trainmen resulted in an immediate movement eastward' of fruit whipments and other perishable freight marooned m California. Bombs were thrown at a Santa Jet train which left San Bernardino for the first time in ix days. "The first bomb exploded in the railroad yards and two more were hurled at the train as the engine wheels spun over oiled rails in rolling out of the city.

Bethel, Aug. 17 Guy Brink, aged 19 years, has not been seen ndr heard from by his parents, nor so far as they know by anyone else, since two weeks ago last Sunday, when he had words with his father over a debt, and bought a ticket for Barre at the local Central Vermont railwsy office. He had been employed at the farm of Zenas G. Smith and was to have re tnmed that evening, but did not.

The mothet is much agitated and fearful for het son's fate. In general, local opinion .regards him as alive and probably in ermont. - SESSA BERINI, New York Granite Dealer Come to Barre for Bride.
