FRIENDS CHURCH PROSPERS
Tioard Seems to Have Considered
Contract Reinstatements With Xo
Provision for Payments.
OR EG ONI AN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, June 12. Testimony of John H.
Kosseter, director of operations of the
shipping board, before the senate com
mittee on commerce today revealed the
fact that while the board has con
sidered reinstatements of canceled
ship contracts on the Pacific coast,
there has been no provision for paying
for such work.
When Mr. Rosseter told the commit
tee ,that reinstatements' aggregating
Ji'5.000,000 to $30,000,000 were considered
Senator Lenroot wanted to know how
tii is money was to be obtained. The
witness seemed to think that the money
could be taken from the appropriation
of $673,000,000 . asked from congress
Senator Lenroot called his attention to
the specific statement in Chairman
Hurley's letter to the house appropria
tions committee that all contract sus
pensions were to be treated as cancel
Hearing TVot Sat inf net ory.
After a second thought the witness
staid that the money derived from the
Kales of ships might be devoted to re
instatements, which caused Senator
Lenroot to remind him that money so
received must go into the treasury and
could not be . expended except by
authority of congress.
The brief hearing, today was not at
all satisfactory, because the committee
adjourned without any clear under
t standing of the board's policy, as indi
cated when the first testimony was

more definite policy in the matter of
ship operation than it has with regard
to ship construction.
BullrirrM Kutlmatea Sought.
After the hearing Mr. Rosseter again
railed on representatives of the Pacific
roast shipbuilders tsubmit estimates
as Xo their best prices for building un
der reinstatements. It appears to be
settled fact that no yard building ships
of sh than 7500 tons has any chance
of receiving reinstatements, which
would exclude one yard at Portland, Or.
Pacific coast shipbuilders may find
consolation in one discovery made to
day. That is, that much more sweep
ing cancelations of contracts had been
intended until they came here and
started the fight which has kept the
members of the shipping board busy an
swering questions and making explan
tions for the last two weeks.

Robertson, federal minister of labor, ar
rived today, and it was intimated at
citizens' committee headquarters that
he is armed with wide authority in con

NEW YORK. June 12. Represent

ties of radicals in this state, guarded
by several members of the state con
stabulary, late today raided the offices
of the Rusnian soviet government in
this city and took possession of books
and papers found there.
Mr. Frayne expressed the opinion
that the I. W. W. favored the overthrow
of government by force and the con
fiscation of private property. He
pointed out literature of the organ
ization and described speeches made
by its leaders in support of his claim.
The attitude of the I. W. W. toward
the American Federation of Labor was
"one of extreme antagonism." he said.
A similar attitude, he asserted, was
maintained by the Workers interna
tional Industrial Union, which, he, paid,
while aiming at the public ownership
of industries, was willing to adopt par
liamentary methods to obtain them

tunity to make them forcibly promised
