JAILORS WILLING TO

Coast Conference of Journey
men and Employers Asked.
PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED
Ban Francisco Union, on Strike
Since September 2, Wants
General Agreement.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26. (Spe
cial.) Journeymen tailors' union No.
SO, whose members have been on
ftrike since September 2 for $44 a
week of 44 hours, yesterday voted on
the question of submitting the follow
ing proposition to the Pacific Coast
Merchant Tailors' association:
That the journeymen tailors now
on triko in the various cities of the
Facific coast at once return to work"!
at the wasres and .hours for which
they are now on strike; that they re
main at work under those conditions
for a pfriod of 30 days, during which
a coast conference of journeymen and
merchant tailors be called, at which
shall be selected a committee of 10,
live employers and five employes,
which snail go into session for not
longer than five days for the pur
pose of reaching an agreement as to
hours and wages of journeymen tail
ors on the entire Pacific coast, and
that such agreement, when reached,
h.tll be binding on all organizations,
both of employers and employes, on
the entire coast.
If the local union agrees to this
proposition today it will then be sub
mitted to the employers and the way
will be paved for ending the strike.
The proposition is an answer to one
emanating from the Pacific Coast
Merchant Tailors' association and re
jected by the union, which provides
that the men now on strike return
to work at wages and conditions ex
isting r""ir to the strike, pending a
permanent settlement similar to that
outlined in the proposition voted on
today.
Whatever may be the result of the
union vote on the proposition, it is
believed that as a result of several
conferences held this week between
represerv tives of both parties to the
controversy some way will be found
to bring about an amicable settlement
of the strike.
Journeymen tailors' union has es
tablished a tailoring shop on the co
operative plan in a building here
where they are doing work for the
smaller tailoring firms which have
signed a new agreement with the
union. Plans are under way to get
all local unions interested in the
proposition and to establish a number
of stores throughout various coast
cities to handle all classes of tailor
ing until a settlement is reached.

by American Force.
COPENHAGEN. Sept. 26 (By the
Associated Press.) America-n marines
landed from a torpedo-boat destroyer
to compel the Italians to evacuate
Trau, Dalmatia, according to a dis
patch received here from Spalato, a
short distance east of Trau.
The dispatch aaas that the Italians
left after the inhabitants fired on
them and that Jugo-Slav troops took
over the town from the Americans.
The di-pateh, which is dated Sep
tember 25, says that a Jugo-Slav de
tachment began to advance towards
Trau when the American - destroyer
entered the harbor to compel the re
tirement of the Italians. The inhabi
tants of Trau then opened fire on the
Italians, who hastily departed.
The Italian commander and three
men in an armored car fell into the
hands of the Slavs. In the meantime
200 American marines with machine
guns' landed and took over the ar
mored car and the prisoners, who
subsequently were transferred to an
Italian ship. Then the Serbian troops
arrived and were enthusiastically
welcomed. The Americans .. handed
over the town to the Jugo-Slav troops
and re-embarked. The destroyer will
remain in the harbor for a few days.

Julius H. Barnes. United States
wheat director, has made public his
reply to the statement issued by
Senator Gronna, chairraan of the sen
ate agricultural committee, reflecting-
on Mr. Barnes and the United
States Grain corporation, in their ad
ministration of the ; wheat guaran
tee act.
Mr. . Barnes' answer is -contained
in the following letter sent to Sen
ator Gronna: -
"My. dear senator:
"I note through the public press
your statement of August 12. I
greatly desire, in the difficult prob
lems of this office, the sympathetic
co-operation of your committee. Be
fore this task of national adminis
tration should be again embarrassed
by charges of manipulating, tending
to undermine public confidence, please
grant me the opportunity to examine
statements of presumed facts made
before your committee. Jn this case.
was there proper effort at verifl
cation?
"I refer particularly to your state
ment: 'They should know that owing
to manipulation in administering the
grades and standards, together with
the damage done by hot weather to
the maturing crops, the winter wheat
producers are receiving as low as
$1.15 per busheVfor their wheat, not
the $2.05 which- Mr. Barnes gives as
a theoretical average, and that this
year's crops may average not over
H.50 per bushel.' -
"That $1.15 statement originated as
the uneasy apprehension of a Kansas
editor. It is as if, distracted, one
anxiously sought insurance against
one's home catching fire at the same
instant that a cyclone wrecked it,
lightning struck it, earthquakes
shook it. and a flood swept it away.
All might conceivably happen at once,
but it is not likely. Out of 80,000,000
bushels of wheat marketed in the
southwest since July 1 our records
fail to indicate even 1000 bushels
wheat so priced. Of 16.000 car
loads of wheat received in Kansas
ity only six cars sold below $2, and
he lowest was $1.92. Less than 6
per cent has sold below the stand-
rd price for No. 3 at $2.11.
As to the $2.05 w-hich Mr. Barnes
lves as a theoretical average. me
department of agriculture gives,
monthly, the actual average farm
rice received by the grower, includ
ing actual prices for damaged and
inferior qualities. Those official re-
orts allow the following calcula-
ions: Corn" -of.. 1917, 423,000,000
bushels, marketed at average grower
rice of $2.02. Crop of 1918, 729.-
000.000 bushels, marketed at average
grower price of $2.06.
The .weighted average for the two
rops is $2.04d9, and was the basis
for my statement.
AS to the- producer not receiving
the full measure of the guarantee.
i interesting to note that the
average farm price July 1, was $2.20,
and on August 1, $2.17, between which
dates there was marketed 150,000,000
ushels, evidently at 12 to 15 cents
bove the average price obtained dur
ing two years of tne lair price control.
"In view of this, the anxiety 'that
this year's crops may not average
over $1.50' seems premature.
The wheat guarantee is expressed
in standard grades promulgated by
he express direction of congress.
The guarantee is expressed in prices
at certain market terminals, and to
insure that a fair reflection of those
erminal prices reach the producer

With a view to inaugurating a
"home industry and buy-at-home"
campaign, Herman Von Borstel. presi
dent, and W. J. Crossley, secretary,
of the Portland Realty Board, have
formulated a plan of giving away
some article manufactured in Ore
gon at each weekly meeting of the
board.
'Our purpose is to get people to
think," said Mr. Crossley. "The ave
rage business man goes Into a store
and asks for in article, say carbon
paper. The chances are that unless
he asks for the Oregon product he
will get an article manufactured in
New Jersey or some other state. On
the contrary, if he but knew it there
is a good grade of carbon paper pro
duced right here ' in our own state.
The same is true of many other
articles, the only problem being to
get people acquainted with the Ore
gon product."
Mr. Crossley said it was hoped that
all the civic and business organiza
tions of the city would co-operate with
the realty board in a big campaign
for the use of home products, which
would mean bigger payrolls and bet
ter business conditions.

corporation asked the millers and
ealers at country points to accept
as final the Judgment of the disin-
erested government agency in cases
where the producer felt grades or
rices did not properly extend to him
hat guarantee. For the first time
n the age-long dispute between buyer
nd seller the producer can get a
isinterested decision, binding on the
oyer, at the expense of the post
ge stamp. To the credit of the
trades, these contracts have been
generally accepted, and the usual
rade rights of individual judgment
urrendered to the common good.
'he producer apparently is satisfied
with his treatment, for with two
million wagonloads of wheat mar
keted, we have received, in all our
offices, less than 100 appeals against
grade or price offered.
'If your suggestion is that the
grain corporation prices on damaged
wheat are relatively too low, fair
discussion on that phase is welcomed.
Those discounts are the judgment of
20 men of lifelong grain experience
actuated by the same high ideals of
national service as yourself. We aim
to establish these discounts as gen
erously as soundly possible in the
relief of such producers as suffer
from nature's disfavor and shall not
hesitate to recast them when con
vinced of error. Nor shall we hesi
tate to provide correction and resti
tution by dealers in such cases a

properly treated. The competition of
thousands of individual mills and
dealers affords additional security
to the producer. This competition
is real and active.
"Nothing in many years of private
experience and nothing in two years
of experience in public control war
rants me in accepting, without pro
test, such expressions as 'manipula
tion in administering the grades and
standards' or that 'the producers
are thereby defrauded and the con
sumers receive no benefit.' It is i

Where Can I Find Relief From
Itching, Terrifying Eczema?
This Question Is Ever on the
Lips of the Afflicted.

no reason to despair. You simply have
not sought the proper treatment, that
is within your reach.

who have suffered as you have to
guide you to relief. No matter how
terrifying the Irritation, no matter
-how unbearable the itching and burn

reach the seat of the trouble. Give it
