From the headquarters of the first federal reserve district has been sent out the following notice: "The war is over, but the victory is not yet won. Europe is suffering from fcur years of underfeeding. In this country ' the symptoms of what is known" as discontent point directly lo hunger not hunger for food in Amer ica so much as for the contentedness which can come cnly from normal con ditions. "The basic trouble is simple there is not in all the world food enough or cloth enough or enough of anything j necessary to simple living to enaum t-v. eryone to live as he or she lived betoro tho war. The way to solve the problem is almost equally obvious. Everybody each one of you, has got to see that nothing is wasted. Only by conserv ing every resource can the nation hast en to return to normal conditions. "The people of tho United states re sponded to tho appeals and suggest ions of the food administration, as a war measure, in a way that showed better than almost anything else how deep and how true is the spirit of idealism which has dominated the country. The national government, through this committee, appeals lo yon individually now to continue the oco- . P . .,,, Hothlmr and t.n, o v. n money. It hogs or you to no tins, roc as war measure, and not primarily for the sake of our national prosperity, but. for tho sake of your own sellish welfare. It is tho only way in which the cost of living can be brought back to a lower average. It is the only way in which the industries of tfiis country and the rest of the world can catch up with the dead loss of the past four years. Until they can rupply the normal demand under nor mal conditions, labor and all other con dltions must be unsettled. For "your own sake therefore ,as well as for tlie sake of everyone else in America and Europe be careful and thrifty." BRITISH STRIKE IS CALLED OFF BY AGREEMENT London Startled by Suddeness of Termination GENERAL SATISFACTION Compromise Is Made Nation Appear ed to be on Brink of Revolution London, Oct. 6. General relief and satisfaction are expressed 'by news- papers over tho settlement railroad strike. Most of the people maintain that neither side is entitled to claim victory, but several declare the re sult has shown that organized work men are "unable to intimidate the nation." London, Oct 5. Ixindon was starll eu, but greatly pleased, ty the sudden announcement, this afternoon, that the great railway strike, which ap peared to have brought the country al most to the brink of revolution, was settled, and that the strikers would resume work as quickly as.possible. The terms of the settlement are in the nature of a compromise. The na tional union of railway men agrees to call off the strike, and the govern ment consents to a renewal of the ne gotiations, tho continuance of the existing wage scale for another year, instead of six months, as previously offered, and the establishment of a minimum wage of 51 shillings while the cost, of living is 110 per cent, above the pre-war level. The settlement was the result of a long conference today between a trade union delegation, including rep resentatives of the railway men's union and Premier Lloyd-George and Andrew Bonar Uw in the famous con ference room in Downing street. Prior to this there was a cabinet meeting. It is conceded on all 'sides that the settlement is the outcome of the mod erate, but determined efforts of Jhe executive of the transport workers' federation and men like Arthur Hen derson and John Robert .Clynos, who throughout have set their faces steadi ly against the idea of a sympathetic strike until every possiblpj avenue of mediation had been explored. Tlw official terms of settlement are as follows: First Work shall be resumed im mediately. Second Negotiations will bo re sumed on (he understanding tliat they shall be completed before the end of the year. Third Wages will be stabilized at the present level until Septem ber 30th 1920, and at. any time after August 1 they may be reviewed in the light of circumstances then exist ing, j Fourth No adult railwaymen in Great Britain shall receive less than 51 shillings per week while the cost, of living is 110 per cent above the I pre-war level. Fifth The railway union agree that their men will work harmonious- ly with the men who returned to work or who remained at work durin the strike. Nor shall there be any Utilization of strikers. Sixth Arrears of waues will vic- be paid on resumption of work.

CAPITAL1 AND LABOR TODAY Aim Is to Arrive at Some Com mon Ground of Agreement LANE MAY HE CHAIRMAN No Well Thought Out Program Wil son Had Given General Idea of Procedure Washington, Oct. 6. Interest in tha nation's industrial situation centered here today when representatives of tho three great elements in national life, capital, labor and " tho public, were to set in conference. Their aim, as expressed by President Wil son in calling the meeting, will be to arrive at "some common ground of agreement and action with regard to the future conduct of industry." The conference was to begin at two thirty. Washington, Oct. 5. The National Industrial Conference, summoned a few weeks ago by President Wilson to onsider "fundamental means of bet tering the whole relationship of labor and capital." and originally planned to be held in tho White House, will con vene tomorrow morning in the Pan- American Building, with many repre sentatives of labor ibsenC. At mid night it was not certain whether tho. Brotherhoods of Trainmen and Firo- men would be represented and the rnited Mine Workers Union has no tified Secretary of Labor Wilson that it will not have a representative at the conference. The calling of the steel strike in ad ance of thi conference agalust the request of president - Wilson, which is brought to a sharp isue many or. the matters of disputes that, naturally would bo discussed by the conference has developed a very tense situation between union labor and capital. This is giving Secretary of Iabor Wilson and Secretary of the Interior Ixine great concern. Both are not certain just whether this issue can be avoid ed and if it comes to the front early ;t is feared that "the conference will end in failure: Thus far there is no well-thought out program for the conference. Pres ident Wilson had carefully considered the matter and had given his general idea of what should be done, not only in his speech before Congress on May 20 last, but in the call for the confer ence. But his sudden illness has com polled other members of the Cabinet to proceed slowly. RAIN PREVENTED SUNDAY'S BIG GAME Cincinnati Shut Out Chicago in the Fourth Contest of World Series.
