NO 8-HOUR DAY IN
Proposal of Federal Mediation
Commission Is Rejected
EARLY ACTION IS RECEIVED
Lumbermen Point Out That .They
Cannot Have 8-Hour Day in
.Northwest and Compete With
Cheaper Labor of South.
Efforts of Secretary of Labor Wilson
nd the Federal Mediation Commission
to induce the lumber manufacturers of
the Pacific Xqrthwest to adopt a basic
eight-hour day with the prevailing 10
hour pay for the shorter day have
failed. The lumbermen have unitedly
decided against the proposal. They
have taken the position that they will
Tatify such a programme only when the
eight-hour day is made National n
scope by legislative or administrative
action and applicable to all lumber
manufacturers throughout the United
Lumbermen of the Pacific Northwest
opposed thep lan to impose the shorter
workday exclusively in- this section of
the country for the reason that the
iSouth. which competes in shipbuilding
and in pine , manufacturing-, employes
negroes at $1.50 for an 11-hour day
and white men at $2 for the same
length workday. They assert it is
manifestly Unjust to permit that con
dition to continue and at the same
time ask the lumbermen of the Pacific
Northwest go on -an eight-hour basis
with the 10-hour pay of $3.50 a day.
They -urge, furthermore, the objection
that to place 'the industry in this sec
tion on a basic eight-hour day would
undoubtedly result in reducing the out
put of the lumber camps at a time when
the Government is seeking in- every way
to encourage a maximum production of
Plaa at First Favored.
At the request of the Federal Medi
ation Commission the Western Pine
Manufacturers' Association held a
meeting at Spokane, Wash.. Decebze,r
7. to consider the eight-hour day plan.
-At this meeting arguments were pre
sented in behalf of the commission in
favor of adopting a basic eight-hour
day, meaning the present 10-hour pay
for eight hours' work. A considerable
majority of the 30 manufacturers in at
tendance at this meeting voted in favor
of the proposition on patriotic grounds
as it was represented to them that the
adoption of the eight-hour day would
.help to speed up the production of lum
ber for military use and for the further
reason that their example would prob
ably be followed by the fir and spruce
manufacturers of Western Oregon and
Five days following the Spokane
meeting, December 12, Secretary Wil
son and the members of the Federal
Mediation Commission met jointly
with a large number of Douglas fir
manufacturers of Oregon and Wash
ington at Seattle. After a long con
ference Secretary Wilson asked these
manufacturers to agree to a proposi
tion similar - to that which had been
adopted by the pine manufacturers at
Spokane, The lumbermen, however, re
sponded by submitting a counter prop
osition, in which they agreed to the
shorter day provided it was made Na
tional in its scope. This proposition
was submitted in the following form:
"In accordance with the two primary-
requests made by the President's
Mediation Commission, we have to the
best of our ability disclosed to th
Commission the troubles from which
the lumber industry in the PaWc
Northwest has suffered, and now offer
as a constructive suggestion, based on
our experience as operators and look
ing forward to the uninterrupted pro
duction of that part of our product
which the Government may need, the
"We believe there is not a general
demand that we operate on less than
a. 10-hour basis, which basis is neces
sary and -will be required if the mate
rial needed by the Government is
produced. and propose that the
Government co-operate with us by
"1. Stamping out the activities of the
I. W. W. or other seditious organiza
tions or individuals. , ...
"2. Continuing to return loggers and
mill workers from the Army to the
camps and millsas long as the shortage
of labor continues or as long as the
Government needs our product.
"3. In the event it is found neces
sary, exempting men- in the mills and
camps from the draftr
Sdi Met, Is Opinion.
"We trust the commission 'win give
due consideration to our opinion that
this programme, if carried out. will
meet all the needs of the Government
at this ti me in the event, however,
that the commission does not fel that
it can work with us along thse lines,
but believes a basic eight-hour work
ing day should be established, we an
nounce our willingness to assist in put
ting the industry in this section on a
basic eight-hour day (although our
firm conviction is that the result will
be a reduction in output) whenever it
can be made National in scope by leg
islative or administrative action or
"If our principal competing producers
remain on their present standard of a
10 and 11-hour workday, we believe
that the Commission will not feel that
in Justice it should attempt to use Its
power to put into effect a regional
eight-hour day in our industry. We be
lieve the above expresses the Judg
ment of the industry in the Pacific
Learning of the action of the fir
and spruce manufacturers at the Seat
tle meeting, the Western Pine Manu
facturers' Association yesterday called
another meeting at Spokane and re
scinded its former action in declaring
for the eight-hour day with 10 hours'
pay. It was reliably reported last
night that the counter proposition, pre
sented to the commission at the Seattle
meeting, was read and approved by the
Spokane meeting yesterday..
JLUMBERMEX DROP 8-HOl'R DAY
Move Conflicts With Western Pine
SPOKANE. Wash.,. Dec. 2S. (Special.)
The action of the Western Pine Man
ufacturers' Association here December
7, voting to put into effect the eight
hour day in the lumber camps and
mills of Eastern Washington and Ore
gon, Northern Idaho and Western Mon
tana, today was rescinded by the asso
ciation, it was announced tonight by a
committee of members.
Announcement made public tonight
by J. P. McGoldrick, Spokane: D. C.
Eccles, Baker, Or., and E. 11. Polleys,
Missoula, Mont., as a publicity com
mittee for the Western Pine Manufac
turers' Association, said:
"A special meeting of the Western
Fine Manufacturers' Association, called
by tie airectors, today considered fully
the action of the meeting of December
7 on the matter of the eight-hour day
and found this action Xo be illegal, un
der the constitution and by-laws of the
association. The action of December 7
was. therefore, declared to be null and
void. No further action was taken."
.The basic eight-hour day will be
come effective next Tuesday, in the
lumber plants of 20 companies in East
ern Washington and Northern Idaho, it
was announced later by Mr. McGoldrick.
These include practically all the plants
in the district except two, which are
owned by Montana concerns. The
Washington and Idaho lumber men are
acting as individuals, it was declared.
Mr. Polleys, speaking for the Oregon
and Montana lumbermen, declared that
their position was that installation of
the eight-hour day would curtail pro
duction and that their action was the
patriotic one to take.
SHIPYARD NEEDS 200 MEN
Coos Bay Company Wants Ship
wrights, Also. Unskilled Workers.
J1ARSHFIELD, Or.. Dec. 28. (Spe
cial.) James H. Polhemus, manager
of the Coos Bay Shipbuilding Company,
has announced the company is desirous
of engaging 200 additional men as
quickly as they. can be obtained.
The yard is constructing four Gov
ernment vessels and employing 225
men. The new workmen desired,. Mr.
Polhemus says, are largely skilled la
borers, but there is room for young
men who are not experts. In speaking
of the suddeni need, Mr. Polhemus said
the yard is anxious to speed up the
construction and before the present
vessels are completed he expects to
have 600 men working on the ships.
The Coos Bay Shipbuilding Company
wants in particular,' shipwrights, and
pays the Government scale.
ALLIED- CAUSE MUST WIN
(Continued From First Page.)
George the British Prime Minister, was
read. After thanking the conference
for a resolution of the parliamentary
committee of the trades union congress
and the national committee of labor
which partly suggested that Great
Britain make a declaration of the war
aims of the entente, the letter said:
"A statement in regardt to the war
aims of 'the allies can, of course, be
made only in agreement with the other
nations who are fighting in alliance
together in the war. The question of
issuing a fresh joint declaration on
this subject is one which is constantly
kept in view by the allied govern
ments, but it is not one about which
it is possible for the British govern
ment to speak by itself.
Russian IVews Lacking;.
"We had looked forward to an inter
chang eof views on this subject with
delegates .appointed by the Russian
government to attend the conference
held in Paris, but to our regret the
absence of any representative of Rus
sia at that conference made any such
As to Great Britain's war aims, the
Premier referred the conference to his
speech on the adjournment of Parlia
ment and expressed the hope that this
speech would remove any misunder
standing. Mr. Lloyd George's letter said that
to his mind "the ideals for which we
are fighting today are precisely those
for which the British Empire entered
the war." ,
"We accepted the challenge thrown
down by Prussia," the letter continued,
"In order To free the world once and
for al) from the intolerable menace of
militaristic civilization and to make
passible a lasting peace by restoring
the liberty of oppressed nationalities
and by enforcing respectful those laws
and treaties which are thep rotection
of all nations, whether great or small."
Thfe Premier concluded that he was
never more convinced that the purposes
for which the allies were continuing
the war were not imperialistic or vin
dictive, but that their achievement was
essential to the future freedom and
peace of mankind.
Joseph Havelock Wilson, president of
the International Seamen's Union, char
acterized the memorandum as the most
contradictory document he ever had
seen presented to a trades union con
gress. "Until we have made the German
nation feel that it has made a grevious
mistake anS it has repented of its
crimes and foul murders, our aims
should be to carry on the war," said
James Henry Thomas, assistant gen
eral secretary of the Amalgamated
Society of Railroad Servants, said that
when peace was discussed it must be
a world peace. He added that if Ger
many did not agree to labor's war aims,
labor must fight on to secure what
labor believed to be right.
Attempt to Amend Falls.
An attempt to amend the motion to
consider the memorandum was made
by Stephen Walsh, parliamentary sec
retary of the local government board
and a labor member of Parliament.
Mr. Walsh contended that as many
branches of the national labor move
ment had not had an opportunity to
consider the memorandum further dis
cussion of it -should be adjourned for
a month. The proposed amendment
was rejected by a vote of 2132 to 1164.
STEVENS CALLS FOR FAITH

to commandeer food, and a famine
threatens for which the peasnts large
ly are responsible. There also is a
coal famine, and the production is only
one, third of normal because the miners
are refusing to work.
"At Vladivostok the supplies of all
kinds arecarefully guarded. The port
authorities have erected large ware
houses and there is not much -deterioration
of j the supplies. The Bolshe
vik! are hr possession and tly? soldiers
maintain order, but laborers are un
easy at the .prospect.
"Siberia is not so much disturbed as
Russia, and it Is the people's desire to
support any government appearing to
be stable. The uncertainty In Russia
rests in the vast preponderance of the
130. P00. 000 persona in the peasant class.
If Germany is allowed to finance and
advise them the situation is lost."
Mr. Stevens said that everywhere he
found the people well disposed toward
America. Even when soldiers stopped
his speical car and entered it they
apologized and withdrew on learning
that the passengers were Americans.
The American influence is strong, pos
sibly stronger than that of any other
of the allies, and Mr. slevens thinks
it now should be exerted to the ut
most, but that the application of phys
ical force in any degree is not advisa
ble. In conclusion Mr. Stevens said:
"Not for a moment should the allies
relax their sympathy and help, but on
the contrary, should quadruple their
efforts. The best sentiment in Russia
is with us, but the question is how to
give in such a manner as to maintain
the sympathy of the intelligent classes
and offset the German influence. We
should earnestly beg the allies not to
punish the Russian people, who love
their country, nor to abandon them to
"We are going back and will stay
there as fong as we can be of any as
sistance to the Russian people."

DEATH HATE SIXTEEN
Fatal Conditions Avoidable, Com
mander Testifies at Hearing, if
Clothing. Tents, Hospital Sup- .
plies Had.- -cnt. .
WASHINGTON. Dec 28. Disease epi
demics and clothing and equipment
shortages at Camp Bowie, Texas, and
Camp Doniphan, Okla., were described
to the 'Senate military committee by
the respective commanders of those
National Guard cantonments, Major
Generals Greble and Wright.
Both officers said the epidemics at
their posts were under control and
that adequate supplies of overcoats had
been received, but they gave dismal
pictures of earlier conditions. They
told, too, of enormous shortages of
rifles, machine guns and other equip
ment, still existing. Food has been
plerjyful, they said, and of good quality.
General Greble's story showed condi
tions at Camp Bowie to have been the
worse. He declared the lives of many
men who recently died there ( would
have been saved had Winter clothing,
sufficient tents to avoid overcrowding
and proper hospital facilities and sani
tation been provided.
Twelve Crowded Into One Tent.
He told how the War Department
ordered 12 men housed In each tent
whereT he said., they were "so thick
you couldn't walk between them."
During November, General Greble
said, 8000 men, or about one-third of
his command, passed through the hos
pital with deaths from pneumonia,
measles and other diseases averaging
16 daily. At one time 1800 men, he
said, were crowded into a hospital built
to accommodate 800 and that without
a sewerage system.
In September, the Gerreral said, he
protested against the crowding of 12
men into a tent, and gave warning that
sickness would result. Before more
tents arrived the epidemic broke out.
Now, however, he added, there are only
800 men on the sick list.
Relief Steps Taken.
During the hearing the committee
also1 received from Secretary Baker a
letter in reply -to Its resolution re
questing immediate action to relieve
clothing shortages in the cantonments,
stating the necessary steps -had been
taken and that he would report fully
as soon as all camps were heard from
Each of the camps investigated today
has about 25,000 men, with Missouri
and Kansas -lational Guardsmen large
ly composing the personnel at Camp
Doniphan and Texas and , Oklahoma
Guardsmen thn at Camp Bowie. Health
conditions at both,-were recently re
ported by Surgeon-General Gorgas,
whjm General Greble said today had
made a correct report of conditions at
the Texas cantonment.
The two camp commanders were be
fore the committee all day, testifying
for three hours behind closed doors
regarding conditions among -General
Pershing's forces, which they r-cently
inspected. They said General Pershing
is short of no supplies except motor
trucks. Wright's Men Well Clothed.
Although all the m'en at Camp Doni
phan now are well clothed. General
Wright said his command still was
short for overseas service. However,
he felt confident .that he would get
sufficient clothing upon starting for
Most of the men at (he camp are
under canvas, the witness said, but the
tents are well floored and are heated
General,' Wright said the death rate
was low,' while the sick rate was not
large, considering thtyf many cases of
measles were brought to camp by
draff men from Camp Funston.
Most of the pneumonia cases at Camp
DonipWan, General Wright said, are a
result of measles. Army officers were,
not surprised at the amount of sick
ness, he added, especially measles.
Meningitis and scarlet fever, however,
were" unexpected developments.
Food supplies he pronuonced "fine."
General Wright said his troops had
not used broomsticks or wooden rifles.
Despite the bayonet shortage at Camp
Doniphan, bayonet training. General
Wright said, was continued.

the squeezing of small dealers out of
competition by the alleged grasp of
the big packers upon the meat, render

the country was given today by wit
nesses before the Federal Trade Com
mission. Francis J. Heney, special counsel for
the commission, said, the packers con
trolled the rendering business from its
collection of butchers' waste to the
manufacture of valuable by-products.
By their methods of gaining control of
meat scraps, fat and bones, he added,
the commission sought to show that
the man who bought a steak or a roast
paid an unnecessarily high price for
Witnesses engaged in the rendering
business asserted that the packers sti
fled competition for the sale of waste
products by bidding up prices beyond
the reach of the independent dealers,
by resorting to the scheme of giving
short weight for refuse, by giving bo
nuses to retailers to break contracts
with competing rendering firms, by fo
menting agitations against the erection
of new competing rendering plants and
by dividing territory among themselves
by "gentlemen's agreements."
John Glennle, of North Andover, a
man of the rugged type, stated that he

This offer was made, he said, when
the "trust" tried to put him out of
business. They resorted first to the
usual methods,, he said, of bidding up
prices for war materials,' by hiring
away his men and by "leasing" away
his customers by the bonus system.
"Finally." he said, "a representative
of the combine' came to me and said
he was sorry, but if I persisted in be

Commissioner Victor H. Murdock, who
presided, "that you refused the differ

the sake of a fight?"
"I was. out to earn a living," Glennie
said, "and if it is necessary to fight
for it, I'll fight. I built my business up
with my own hands and I won't have
it bought away from me by any such
methods as that. What I get I'll earn

them that price for ship lumber, and
they withdrew their offer.
Admiral Bowles did not know
whether the standard- average price of
ship lumber on the Pacific Coast had
ever been advanced beyond $35 per
thousand. Without naming specific
yards. Admiral Bowles testified that
the construction of wood ships ..on the
Pacific Coast had been delayed in some
instances because of the inability of
the yards to get lumber as needed.
Questioned by Senator Jones, he ad
mitted he had no personal knowledge
of the condition, but that the informa
tion had come from Captain John F.
Blain, of Seattle, district officer of the
Chairman Hurley, of the Shipping
Board, today notified Senator Jones
that contracts for- two more wood
ships will be awarded Wright Bros.,
of Tacoma. This is the second new
contract Senator Jones has secured for
Washington yards as the result of
facts he has developed at the investi
gations. PRICES DECLARED TOO HIGH
Admiral Bowles Says Coast Ship
builders Demand Too Much.
WASHINGTON, Dec 28. Rear-Admiral
Bowles, assistant to the general
manager of the Emergency Fleet Cor
poration, testifying today before the
Senate committee . Investigating the
shipping situation, declared that Pa
cific Coast shipbuilders were anxious
to get contracts but only at very high
prices. Pacific Coast plants, he said,
have increased their demands $15 to $20
a ton ir., . ..ps, making the prices
asked from" $180 to $185 a ton, while
some even are asking $200 a ton.
Mr. Bowles made these statements In
connection with an outline of legisla
tion wanted by the Shipping Board,
one portion of which was a suggestion
that Congress protect the shipbuilders
from operation of the war excess' profit
tax law, or at least modify the law as
it pertains to shipbuilders. Mr. Bowles
said operation of the law now was so
uncertain that the board is having dif
ficulty in placing contracts at a rea
sonable price, as the builders claim they
will have nothing left from the profits
on the ships after paying the tax.
Mr. Bowles denied he had stated the
wooden ship programme was a flat
failure. He said he. believed the ship
ping problem would be solved by build
ing steel ships and that wooden snips
should be built only, when tonnage
could be increased more rapidly by that
