The American Federation ot Labor, through its railway de partment, placed its stamp of dis approval on the unauthorized strike and urged all members of affiliated organizations to refuse to obey the walkout. A meeting at Kansas City last night, the biennial convention of the organization endorsed Presi dent Wilson's appointments to the labor board and declared its belief that labor could confidently expect Justice through the law creating the board. The industrial situation in Ohio became more ominous today with more than 100,000 men out of work in Columbus and virtually every coal mine in the state closed. PENNSY HEADS RESTORE MORE DAILY TRAINS i Philadelphia, Pa., April 14. Of ficials of the Pennsylvania road early today reported an improve ment in the strike situation in the Philadelphia district. Nineteen more passenger and express goods trains were operated during the last 24 hours than were tun the previous day; and it was announc ed that the company expected to move some freight today. The Reading railway reported service practically normal. Freight interruption was due, it was stated, to the embargoes of connecting lines. A ray of hope for the settlement of the strike in this state was seen in the agreement of the Pennsylva nia railroad to a proposal made by the state bureau of mediation and arbitration to have its general manager meet representatives of the strikers, provided they can speak for all the men who are not working and that the representa tives of the unions also shall be permitted to be present Railroad officials, however, did not appear very optimistic over the prospects. SUBSTITUTE FOR NEW PEACE BILL GIVEN TO SENATE Washington, April 14.

He announced that he would bring it before the special meeting of the foreign relations committee called fDr-tomorrow, to consider the house resolution. Lowden WILSON HOLDS SELF RESERVE FOR PRESIDENT Lawrence Explains Atti tude On Ground of Isolation. BY IIATID LAWRENCE. (Special to The Argus.) Washington, D. C, April 14. An extraordinary, almost incredible, situation exists inside the Demo cratic party with reference to the next presidential nominee. The true story has been known to few. It has been kept quiet for a num ber of reasons. It explains a mul titude of queries that have been puzzling the political world includ ing the mysterious silence of Presi dent Wilson himself on a third term. Here are the main points, but the relationship arid significance of each to the other must be con sidered : First: President Wilson directed Secretary Tumulty to advise both Attorney General Palmer and for mer Secretary William G. McAdoo on the same day that he had no ob jection to their candidacies in deed they were quite "agreeable" to him. Second : The president did not say he would not be a candidate for a third term himself if the Demo cratic party wished to draft him for service once more. Not a word on this phase of the matter was de livered by Secretary Tumulty. Nobody Knows. Third: Neither Mr. Palmer nor Mr. McAdoo nor anybody in Wash ington knows the president's own purpose with respect to the Demo cratic presidential nomination. It was for a long time suspected that Mr. McAdoo knew the president's mind but he doesn'U Fourth: Although Mr. McAdoo has made several visits to the White house in recent weeks and has spent the night tbere, he has not had the opportunity to talk! with President Wilson. Whether j this is due to the president's desire j to remain absolutely neutral in the presidential nomination fight in which his own son-in-law is a re ceptive candidate or whether -it is due to Mr. Wilson's unwillingness to see anybody with whom he might be tempted to "talk shop' or public business when his physicians insist that his attention be given only to the most vital matters is something which is puzzling everybody. It is not unusual for gnests at the White house not to see the president. And the circumstances of Mr. Mc- Adoo's relationship is considered a plausible factor in the effort of the president not to appear to be ap proving or disapproving, anybody's candidacy. Even though the treaty and League of Nations covenant has failed of ratification since the pres ident sent word that he did not ob ject to the candidacies of Palmer or McAdoo or others, there has been no word from Mr. Wilson to indi cate that he would like to be a can didate himself. Nevertheless after a careful inquiry among friends of the president, persons who have followed the trend of Mr. Wilson's reasoning in politics for some time, the writer has become convinced that President Wilson for a long time did not wish a third term nor did he court the" burdens of an other campaign. The treaty, how ever, is dear to his heart. The League of Nations is in his judg ment an ideal worth laying down his life to achieve. He doesn't con sider himself physically too weak (Continued on page four). WAR VETERANS TO GET MORE PENSIONS Washington, April 14.

Plurality C1EXIC0 TO FIGHT BOLT MORA Folk Held as Rebels and Face Immediate Action by Gen. Carranza. BY RALPH II. TTRER. (United Press Staff Correspondent.) Mexico City, Mexico, April 14. Members ,of the Sonora legislature,! and others participating in the al leged secessionary movement in that state will be regarded as rebels and immediate action taken accordingly, it was learned offic ially last night. General Dieguez, commanding federal troops which were prepared to enter Sonora when the state first protested such action, arrived here last night from Guadalajara. He was called by President Car ranza to confer on plans for a cam paign against the Sonora forces. The president also has called t3 the capital Governor Cantu of Lower California, who has express ed his loyalty to the government. Cantu probably will be asked to take a leading part in the move to snppress the incipient revolt. Uree Mediation. A movement for mediation was started today by a group of promi nent citizens of Sonora, who were in the capital. They were headed by Roberto Pesquera. former Mex!- can financial agent at El Paso and Washington, and widely known in the United States. Pesquera asked an audience with President Car ranza. "There is only one hope for sal vation from national disaster," Pesquera said in an interview with the United Press. "That is media tion or compromise. "If the president grants us an audience we will propose that Gov ernor De La Huerta (of Sonora) come to the capital for a confer ence. The governor is williug. Then we will suggest that the gov ernment withhold troops from Sonora territory until they actually are needed there. Sees Hope of Break. "Should that" be agreed on. I am confident the Sonora government will modify its attitude toward one of recognition of the federal gov ernment. But if the federal gov ernment refuses I am fearful of the consequences, because the people of Sonora are unanimously behind their legislature. . 'There are 12,000 armed men in Sonora who will resist to the last." Another movement was under way seeking settlement through mediation by the federal courts. The supreme court was to give its decision on the legal aspects of the case in the near future. Both General Alvaro Obregon and General Pablo Gonzales, rival presidential candidates, were scheduled to testify in the case of Robert Cejudo, former bandit lead er in Vera Cruz, at this afternoon's session of the court martial trying the bandit. Federals Advance. El Paso. Texas, April 14. (By the Associated Press). Eight hun dred Mexican federal troops in com mand of Colonel Fox left Juarez to day over the Mexican Northwest ern railroad for Casas Grandcs, Chihuahua. The Carranza troops arrived in Juarez Tuesday from Chihuahua City. More federal troops are enroute to Juarez, ac cording to information received there today. It was stated that the troops which left today for Casas Grandes and which are cavalrymen, will march overland from Casas Grandes into Sonora and on to Agua Pneta, opposite Douglas, Ariz. SRRINGFLELD HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ADOPT OVERALLS (By United Piwwi. Springfield, III., April 14. Sev eral hundred students of the local high school today joined the "over all brigade" and appeared in the class rooms wearing jeans and jumpers as a protest against mountir g clothing prices. The movement was well organ ized and as the boys arrived at the school they were met by the ring leaders and urged to "beat it home and change your school colthes for something common." In many instances overalls were not to be had and the boys came back with khaki trousers and blue shirts or anything but their school clothes. The organizers of the movement hope today's demonstration will spread through the city and lead to the organization of an "overall club" in Springfield. Girls were preparing to don aprons and gingham dresses. Is STRIKE FOR PRISONERS GRIPS ERIN Terror Spreads as General Tieup Cripples Larger Cities. BULLETIN'. Koblin, April 14.

American, was shot while trying to escape from prison, it was learned today at the state de partment. This announcement was made shortly after the government re ceived confirmation ot the report that De Mott had been killed by the Germans. De Mott was accused by the Ger mans of participating in radical activities. He was sentenced to death, according to reports here, but the German government in re sponse to a request by the Ameri can representative in Berlin, agreed to delay his execution. Meanwhile, however, it is alleged by Berlin that De Mott tried to escape from prison and was sht by guards. 8 GOBS DROWNED IN CUBAN WATERS Havana, April 14.

April 14. Despite Governor Frank O. Lowden's vic tory in the Illinois primary. Major General Leonard Woo.', apparently i continued to lead today in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Assuming that 35 of Illinois' del egates will vote for Lowden, 14 for Wood and one for Senator Hiram Johnson, the standing on instruct ed delegates today would be Wood. 64; Lowden, 47; Johnson, 41. Eight additional delegates will be chosen in Illinois at the state convention later. On the basis of claims of support of unpledged delegates figuring that Kansas' 20 would go to Wood and Wisconsin's 2t to Johnson, after the early ballots for Gover nor Henry Allen and Senator Rob ert LaFollette, respectively the standing" would be Wood, 137; Low den. 105; Nicholas Murray Butler of New York, 8S; Johnson. 67; Judge J. C. Pritchard of North Car olina, 2S. Johnson Surprises. To political observers, the real surprise of the Illinois Republican primary was the large number of written-in" ballots for Johnson. The only names printed on the bal- ( lots were those of Lowden and Wood, but incomplete r2turiis showed that ' Johnson, who had made no campaign in Illinois, had!tion to Cook, but all the other 98 polled about 40.000 votes. At I counties went to Governor Low- Johnson's eastern headquarters here yesterday it was stated that he "might possibly get 50.000 'writ-, ten-in' ballots. The name or Herbert Hoover also was written in on some Republican ballots. None of the Demoiratic candi dates was entered in the Illinois primary and that state's 5S dele gates joined the already large num ber of uninstructed delegations.

Lowden of Illinois won the Republican presidential prefer ence primary in his home state yes terday by a plurality of 64,574, on returns from all but 430 scattered precincts, although General Leon ard Wood carried Cook county (Chi cago.) by 27,443, and Senator Hirari Johnson of California, whose name had to be written on the ballot, surprised political leaders hy run ning up a vote of 45,193 votes, in cluding 40,881 in Cook county. There were no Democratic candi dates on the ticket, but several names were written in by a few hundred voters. Thompson Sweeps Chicago. Mayor William Hale Thompson of Chicago, Republican national committeeman for Illinois, carried every ward except one for com mitteeman, thereby gaining com plete control ot the Cook county organization for four years. While less than half the vote In the state was cast, and only a sixth as many women as men went to the polls, feminine thrift added to the pluralities by which four bond issues for $:!4,000,000 for municipal improvements were de feated in Chicago. On the primary candidates, the proportion of wom en to men was about the same for the two leading candidates, but on the bond issues, the female per centage ran much higher on thu negative vole. Where Wood Leads. General Wood, the only candi date to make a campaign in the state, carried McDonough, Alexan- j der and puiaskj counties in add ; den. who on the incomplete unof- j neial returns scored a majority of i9,3si over his opponents. The 'governor rolled up a vote down- state that reached a margin of as high as seven to one in one or two counties, bringing him to the Cook county line with nearly 100,000 lead over General Wood. ; Johnson Vote Surprise, - i The surprise of the primary, ac-' cording to supporters ot.both Gov ernor Lowdea end General Wood was the large number of voters who wrote in the name of Senator Johnson, who had made no speeches in Illinois, and had no organisa tion. . Supporters of both regular candidates asserted that the John son vote hurt their candidate to the benefit of the other.
