WASHINGTON. Au;r. 4- President
"Wilson returned to Washington early
today from a week-end trip down the
Potomac on the Mayflower. Late to
day he went to the offices of the fed
eral trade commission and spent come
time in conference with William B. Col
ver and Victor Murdock, members of
the commission. Although the subject
of the conference was not announced.
It was understood that the high coat of
living situation wa discussed.
Recommendations to President V il
eon as to how the government should
proceed in its efforts to lower the cost
of living are expected to result from
the second meeting tomorrow of cab
inet members and their officials called
into conference by Attorney-General
There still was no indication tonight
of how the conference would view the
problem. Director-General of Railroad
Hiloe. Assistant Secretary of the Treas
ury Leff ingwell and Chairman Colver :
of the federal trade commission, ap- j
pointed a committee to present sugges- .
ttons to the conference, have been en-
gaged in an exchange of memoranda, j
but it was said authoritatively they had !
reached no decision as to what step
should be taken. I

Attorney-General Palmer has sum- i

Mr. dyne's visit was regarded as
significant also because an early deci

as to whether information sub

warrants prosecutions against the "big
five" packing companies.
High prices and the resulting unrest

cupied much of the time of the senate
today, Senators from wheat growing
s fates asserted that the government
guaranteed price of $2.26 a bushel was
not responsible for the high cost of
bnead, declaring that wheat was sell
ing at terminals at higher figuree.
Chairman Gronna of the agriculture
committee announced that he had
called a committee meeting tomorrow
to discuss measures to reduce the cost
of living. He said he had no remedy
to offer, but declared that increase of
wages and decrease of working hours
was not a panacea nor would govern
nvent ownership or control of utilities
solve the problem.
Great Profit Scored.
Relation of the price of wheat to
the cost of living wan debated by
several senators. Mr. Gronna denied
that the government's wheat price
guarantee causes undue prices for
bread. He was supported by Senators
Kellogg and Nelson, republicans of
Minnesota, who said wheat was being
old far above the government's guar
antee at the principal terminals.
Senator Gronna declared that the
packers and all dealers in food prod
ucts "never made higher profits" than
they did under the food administra
tion's licensing plan during the war.
Senator Smith said if there was
profiteering, the Sherman act afforded
an opportunity to break it up. He add
ed that extravaganace by most persona
was one cause of present conditions.
Senator Bora h, repu bl ican, of Idaho,
. said it would be no task to find the

"If we can't feed ourselves we ought

corporation to finance and feed Europe,
and our government through the league
of nations is to undertake this plan.
We are to drain this country of its
money and its goods at the very time
our people are clamoring for relief."
Senator Thomas, democrat, of Colo
rado, observed that the high cost of
living was world-wide and asked if any
senator could suggest how one nation
alone could change conditions.

Governor of North Carolina Asks for
Extradition of Horace B. Witt,
Now in Rakersfield.
SACRAMENTO, CaL, Aug. 4. An ap
plication from the governor of North
Carolina for the extradition of Horace
B. Witt of Randsburg, CaL, on a charge
of murder in connection with a shoot
ing that took place March 30, 1902,
near the North Carolina - Tennessee
state line, was taken under advisement
today after a hearing in the governor's
office here. Affidavits were presented
in behalf of Witt, who is detained in
Bakersf ield, CaL, to show that he
killed two men in Monroe county, Ten
nessee, in performance of his duty as a
county constable. The indictment
charged that the shooting took place in
Cherokee county. North Carolina.
Witt said in his affidavit that he
shot Emery Flowers and his son, both
of whom he had gone to arrest on a
warrant issued in connection with dis
possession proceedings. He used a double-barreled
shotgun, loaded with
buckshot, the affidavit said. The son
was killed instantly and the father
died later. Both men leveled guns at
him before he fired, Witt averred.
Witt said he remained in Monroe
county until April 6, 1902. but when
because of ill feeling between residents
along the border of the two states, it
became apparent that it might be
necessary "to kill some more people,"
he decided to leave and went to Los
Angeles. From there he went to Rands
burg and later to A Task a. When he
returned from Alaska his wife told him
that she had divorced him and married
W. E. Mann in Los Angeles
Later, according to correspondence
presented at the hearing, a Los Angeles
police officer "received information
from a man" concerning Witt's where
abouts and the charges against him.
This information was communicated
to the North Carolina authorities, who
requested his arrest.

PROBLEM UP TO MR. BROWN
(Continued From First Pajce.)
WASHINGTON. Aug. 4. President
Wilson was told today by B. M. Jewell,
acting president of the ra ilway divi
sion of the American Federation of
Labor, that all railroad employes were
opposed to the proposal made to the
president by Director-General Hines
that congress constitute a committee
to pass on questions of wage increases
for the men. He said this process would
be too slow and because of the rising
cost of living speedy relief was neces
sary. Mr. Jewell was accompanied to the
White House by the heads of the six
big railway shop crafts, who pointed
out to the president that thousands of
shopmen were now on an unauthorized
strike, and that unless the demands
of the men approximating 25 per cent
presented . last January were granted
promptly the situation would get be
yond the control of the union officials.
, Strike Only After Vote.
Efforts are now being made by the
union leaders to get the strikers to re
turn to work, the president was told.
If a strike should .become necessary in
order to enforce the demands of the
shopmen, the president was informed,
union offioials felt it should be con
ducted only after a vote by the union

announced. The vote will be tabulated
Mr. Jewell declared emphatically that

posed by Director-General Hines "we'll

"So union men could ever be gotten
to sit on such an investigating body
as contemplated by the director-general
and the president." Mr. Jewell added.
Mr. Wilson, the union official said,
listened sympathetically to what the
union officials had to ay, but did not
ind icate any intention to recede from
his attitude that he had not the power
to grant the increases.
Time Needed, ayi President.
"President Wilson told us frankly."
said Mr. Jewell, "that while every
agency of the government waa work
ing on plans to bring relief from the
high cost o living, the country could
not expect a reduction to pre-war
standards for a good many years to
come. He made clear that what the
government now was doing would take
time and immediate relief should not
be looked for and that it would be a
long time before there was a marked
CHICAGO. Aug. 4. A tieup eoon of
freight traffic in the central west as
a result of the strike of railway shop
men was the prediction tonight of L. W.
Hawver. president of the Chicago coun
cil of the federated railway shopmen
union, after he had received reports
from many additional points telling of
the walkout today of shop employes.
He said that a total of 200.000 shop
men were now on strike and that be
fore Wednesday night 75 per cent of
the members would be out.
"All work in the shops of the Chicago
& Northwestern lines is tied up, Presi

ness phones and did not affect resi
dential or rural service.
A little later the city of Portland,
through its officials, filed suit in the
circuit court, for Multnomah county,
questioning the authority of the public
service commission to grant an in
crease in rates and fesking that its
order be rescinded. This case now is
pending in the courts.
Following closely upon the filing of
this action came the strike of the tele
phone operators and electrical workers
for higher wages. The telephone com
pany charged that the granting of the
demands of the strikers would amount
to more than $250, 0U0 a year, and upon
this showing appealed to Postmaster
General Burleson for relief. A few
days later the Burleson schedule was
adopted by the company and the sec
ond increase in charges within a period
of a few months became effective.
Under the terms of a congressional
act, a copy of which has been received
by the Oregon commission, the Burle
son schedule is to remain in effect for
four months, unless changed by the
public service bodies of the various
Situation Complicated One.
Now that the wires have passed from
government to private control, the
members of the Oregon commission see
a chance whereby they may rescind the
Burleson schedule and restore the rate
in effect prior to August 1. Before this
can be done, however, the act of con
gress under which the Burleson sched
ule was authorized mast be so con
strued as to give the commissions of
the various states jurisdiction. It is
this question that will be referred to
Attorney-General Brown, and upon his
decision depends action of the com
mission. While it is agreed here that the city
of Portland acted in good faifh in
bringing its suit to question the au
thority of the commission, certain state
officials believe the action has so com
plicated the situation that serious re
sults may follow.
For Instance, should the city win Its
suit against the commission, thereby
depriving the latter body of jurisdic
tion in fixing the rates of the telephone
corporation, it is argued that the com
pany could easily declare the Burleson
schedule in effect as from November 6.
1918. the date of filing the tariff, and
collect back charges from patrons of
the service from that time. Other equal
ly complicated questions are said to be
involved in the case.

than likely that such an order will be
forthcoming. To do this, however, some
of the officials believe it would first
be necessary to hold a public hearing
and give the telephone company an op
portunity to defend its present rates
and the legality of the Burleson sched
ule. Although none of the commissioners
would comment on the contemplated
action of the body today, 'it is a cer

15,000 and 17,000 silk workers are esti
mated to have struck today in response
to a strike call involving all the silk
mills of Paterson. The total number
employed by the mills is between 25,

strikers were reinforced by some thou
sands of workers who were locked out
when they reported for work 40 min

put into effect a 44-hour week.
The question of a 44-hour week is
the principal contention between the
workers and the mill owners.

Burke miners voted overwhelmingly

their demand for eight hours it will

Officers Say Man Has Record of Op

Here Also Charged.
Information was filed in federal
court yesterday charging Dorothy Riley
and Joseph E. Riley, her husband, with
counterfeiting". They are under $2500
bonds each, pendinjr their hearing-,
which has been fixed for August 25
