LONDON, Jan. 31. There was still no
prospect loqay or oenenneni in ine
labor situation in the United Kingdom.
If anything, the situation, both at Glas
gow and Belfast, has become more se
rious, particularly in Belfast. The
strike movement is spreading to large
industrial establishments and there are
undoubtedly signs of coming disorders
which may entail the proclamation of
martial law.
Cabinet Hesitates to Act.
The situation was discussed at a spe
cial meeting of the Cabinet yesterday.
The Board of Trade also is active in
an effort to bring about settlements.
Tha view taken by the Government
is that any governmental interference
now would be unwise and perhaps dan
Kerous. The strike movements are lo
cal and against the advice of the re
spective trade unions. Moreover, there
is infinite variety in the various de
mands advanced in the different locali
ties. It appears to be generally be1
lieved that the absence of strike pay
for the men will soon bring about
the collapse of the movement.
It is further considered that the
strikes are largely promoted by a few
agitators with political motives. Hence.
the Government is determined to Unfit
its action to the prevention of intimi
dation and the maintenance of order.
Thus far the railways have not been
affected. The Board of Trade has de
cided to grant an eight-hour day to
i ill- .11 1 1 . i v 1 1 -ctrauAaj A, u u I
Vere again is dissatisfaction among the
laiiiway employes concerning the ques
tion of meal times being included in
the eight-hour period, which may lead
to difficulties.
Belfast Situation Bad.
Telegrams from Belfast depict a. sit
uation there which seems akin to that
which recently obtained in German
ities under revolutionary rule. The
governing power has been usurped,
:-ays a Belfast dispatch to the Mail, by
the strike committee, and the city is
governed from the humble Artisans'
"There is no outstanding personal
ity," says the dispatch, "but there is
k capable committee of trades union
leaders, most of whom are moderate
nd restrained. Nobody can do any
thing unless he comes, cap in hand, to
this committee. Even the police are
helpless, and the chief of police has
asked the strike leaders to co-operate
with the constables in preventing dis
orders. "Many discharged sailors and sol
diers are co-operating with the strik
ers. "It is reported that shipyard men and
engineers at Londonderry are arrang
ing to follow the example of the Bel
fast strikers."
Work of Food Administration Is Be
ing Gradually Reduced and
Will End Soon.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 31. Removal of
all restrictions on margins of profit on
foodstuffs except cottonseed products
and eggs and cancellation of most
license requirements of importers and
distributors, effective tomorrow, were
announced today by the Food Admin
istration on authority of a proclamation
slimed bv President Wilson at Parts.
The following only remain under
licenses: Importers and distributors of
wheat, corn, oats, rye, barley and ele
vators and warehouses storing these
grains and rice.
Importers, manufacturers and distrib
utors of fresh, canned or cured beef,
Dork or mutton, cottonseed, cottonseed
oroducts, lard, butter and eggs and
Importers and manufacturers of rice,
rice flour, wheat flour and wheat mill-
feeds and cold storage warehousemen
The margins still allowed are: Ke-
tail cold storage and fresh eggs, 7 to
8 cents a dozen; cottonseed lard substi
tutes at wholesale, 1 to 2 cents ;i
Dound on more than 50-pound pack
ages. 8 to 10 per cent on less than 60
pound packages and 5 to 6 cents and
18 to 22 per cent at retail. W holesale
margins on eggs differ according to
the number of services performed by
the wholesaler or jobber.
In addition to the regulations can
celed by the proclamation, all remain
ing special regulations governing man
ufacturers and distributors of butter
were repealed.
In making the announcement tne
Food Administration warned dealers
NEW YORK, Jan. 31. Four of
America's aces, one of them Captain
Edward V. Rickenbacher, of Columbus,
O., who is officially credited with
bringing down 26 enemy airplanes, ar
rived here late today on the British
steamship Adriatic. The others were
Major James A. Meissner, of Brooklyn,
officially credited with eight machines;
Lieutenant Paul F. Baer, of Mobile,
eight, and Captain Douglass Campbell,
of Mount Hamilton, Cal., six. All wore
decorations awarded them by the
American and allied governments.
Captain Rickenbacher, prior to go
ing to France, was a well-known
driver of racing automobiles. His first
experience abroad was as chauffeur to
General Pershing, but he soon was
transferred to the air service. He
soon led America's airmen in the
number of foes downed.
"There is no comparison between the
automobile and the air," Captain Rick
enbacher said today. "I am through
with the automobile, and I stand ready
to place my skill and talents in fly
ing, if I have any. at the service of
my Government, commercially or other
"In my flying I had no particular
system that I can describe and my
victories were simply 60 per cent luck.
in all my work I used French ma
chines, as did most of the boys."
Lieutenant Baer. who spent eight
months in a German prison camp .be
fore being released after the signing
of the armistice, said he was brought
down during a fight with four enemy
machines at a height of about 12,000 feet.
when his machine was disabled by a
machine gun bullet and he himself
wounded. Ho said the Germans
treated him reasonably well.
Captain Campbell took part in the
fighting at Chateau Thierry. His
most thrilling experience, he said, was
his escape with a broken wing after
a right with six enemy machines. He
credits Captain Rickenbacher with
saving him by driving off the foe.
Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, of New York
who went to Europe to further the
Zionist movement, returned on the
Adriatic, declaring that the success of
the project was assured.
Among the 2878 passengers were Sir

This action by the President virtu

The American attitude, it is declared,

American attitude, it is held in some
quarters, might be such that It prob
