panies by the National 1 ar Labor
His announcement came after the
War Labor Board had received a. tele-
(ram from Xewcorab Carlton, president
f tha western Union, refusing; to com
ply with the board's request that the
company refrain from discharging- em
ployes who Join the union until after
the board could hear both aides to the
controversy. Mr. Carlton screed to ap

tha union.
No reply was received from the Postal
Six Uassrea Reported Dlaaslaaed.
Mr. Konenkamp told tha labor board
taday that 0O telegraphers had been
discharged since Sunday. The situation
la particularly critical on tha Pacific
Coast, he said, where the service Is
badly crippled. In Seattle, ha said. 200
telegraphers have been discharged.
Earlier In the day Mr. Konenkamp
teld the board that the question of a
strike reated with tha men and that he
would go to New York and Chicago to
confer with them. In announcing: later
his compliance with tha request of the
board not to sanction a strike. Mr.
Konenkamp aald the men appreciate
that "this Is not the time to accept
challenges to fight If peace can be had
y other means.
His statement follows:
"The labor members of tha National
War Labor Board hare urged me not
to sanction a strike, d'-splto the attitude
of tha telegraph companies In refusing
to establish a truce between now and
next Wednesday, and I have consented
: to await the decision of tha labor board.
f!abr Board llaa Power.
"The labor members laid stress upon
the necessity of complying with the
Presidents proclamation, even though
ench a course Involves even greater and
mora extensive lockouts than have al
ready taken place, so that It might be
shown to the Nation that labor is loyal
to tha Uovernment at all times.
-la taktnr this step I reallxa that It
will meet with some criticism from our
members who resent the arrogant at
tftude of the ofrt-tals of the Western
T'nlon and Postal Telegraph companies.
The assurance that ' the board has
power to sustain Its decisions, how
ever, will give our people confidence
that their rights will bo recognised."
The Wsr Labor Board adjourned to
night until next Wednesday, with an
announcement by Frank P. Walsh, Joint
chairman with former President Tsff,
that It would take no action In the
controversy antil then.

verified this and vouch for Its truth:

fish hooks and lines and a couple of
Jolly boats snd allowed to go among
the rocks and catch fish. Each boat,
of course, was In charge of an armed
sentry. After fishing they would re
tarn to the Wolf each night.
Ob the night before the Wolf was to
sail two men, the chief mate and first
assistant engineer of the steamship
Turltella, dropped overboard and swam
for shore. Tha next day the Wolf
started as per schedule, and these men
were not missed- for three days. When
their loss was finally discovered there
was a great rumpus, and as a punish
ment all the prisoners were kept below
deck for 2S days, only being allowed on
deck for one hour each day for exer
cise. The British Captain said that
those were the worst days he ever ex
perlenced In his life, and that each
day he and the rest were getting per
ceptibly thinner. ,

from the sentry that the prisoner off!

not the prisoner officer, but the mine
officer. Lieutenant Dedrlck, who proved
to be a humane officer and champion
of the prisoners.
Dedrlck came down below into the
hell hole and got ona good lungful of
the rotten atmosphere and went Im
mediately to the commander and re

Commander Nerger at once called
both doctors and accompanied them aft
on a tour of Investigation. The next
day everybody was chased on deck and
the hell hole below was cleaned out
and painted and better ventilation ar
ranged for. Also the captured Cap
tains and ships officers were given
quarters for themselves, while the
whites and blacks were separated. On
the whole, conditions for these 200 men
were Improved 100 per cent.
The prisoner officer was confined to
his room for five days for letting such
a condition exist. Nerger had Inspected
these quarters before, but only when
the men were on deck and the place
freshly cleaned out. Personally I do
not think ha knew how bad conditions

It Is also a violation of the asplra

enemies of the Deople and adepts- in
exploiting them under the protection

Marvelous Duo Art
Requires No Pedaling
In the Duo Art, the air chamber is kept filled with air
without pedaling. This enables the one playing to devote
his entire attention to interpretation, thus making the
instrument a pleasure instead of a labor.
The Duo Art is ideal for Dancing:, as no attention is re
quired after the roll (any make) is inserted. Because of
the superior Tone Coloring, Time Control, and Solo Ac
centing features, the Duo Art dance music is perfect.
The Duo Art is far ahead of all other Players in these
vital features.
1 Tone Gradation having practically twice the number
of Tone Gradations of any other player instrument,
producing perfect "tone color impossible in any
other Player.
2 'rTime" Control which not only regulates the time
but instructs and guides the one playing, assuring the
correct interpretation of the selection.
3 Accenting the Solo bringing out perfectly the solo
(or melody), but at the same time controlling the ac
companiment so that it properly supports the Solo.
4 Simplicity of Construction No complicated' or trouble
some mechanisms, as in other - Players.
5 Reproducing the actual playing of the Great Pianists
with the wonderful Duo Art Rolls, as perfectly as
the Victrola reproduces the voice of Caruso and
other great artists.
There are so many interesting things about the Duo Art.
We cordially invite you to come in to see and hear it.
