Principles That Embody Judge
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. Deadlock
In the committee or 15 or the "steer.
Ing committee" over labor's proposal
to arbitrate the steel strike, brought
about adjournment today of the na
tional industrial conference until
Tuesday. In the meantime the "steer

tempt to agree on a report to lay
before the conference when it reas
Adjournment came after the con
ference had received the proposals of
the employers' group declaring for
the principle of the open shop and af
firming that "no employer shall be
required to deal with men or groups
of men who are not his employes or
chosen by and from among them."
The latter principle created quite a
stir and was considered by some of
the delegates as approval of the stand
taken by Judge Elbert H. Gary, chair
man of the United States steel cor
poration, in refusing to meet the
Sympathetic Strikes Opposed.
Other principles enunciated in the
declaration of the employers include:
Acceptance of the right of strike
or lockout, excepting in the case of
government employes: opposition to
sympathtic strikes and lockouts; In
sistence on the function of the man
agement in directing industry; em
phasis of shop unions as opposed to
the industrial councils proposed by
organized labor; and a declaration
that co-operative relations betwee
capital and labor should be worke
out in individual establishments with
due regard to local factors, instead
of along the lines of entire Industrie
as suggested by labor.
'High industrial efficiency was
stated by the employers as the touch
stone of sound industrial relations.
After receiving the proposals of th
employers, an hour's recess was take
to permit the committee of 15 to bnn
in a report on the one resolution
which, it was announced, was unde
consideration. On reconvening, how
ever, the committee informed the con
ference that it was unable to agree
on a report and after objections ha
been registered by Samuel Gompers,
of the labor group, and Thomas L.
Chadbourne. of the public representa
tives, adjournment was taken.
Capitalists Are Gratified.
With the fundamental proposals by
the "right' 'and "left" groups before
the conference, as well as a number
of important proposals by representa
tives of the public, members of the
conference tonight expressed their
satisfaction with the result of the
first week's deliberations. In ex
planation of the employers' attitude,
M. W. Alexander, managing director
of the national industrial conference
board, in a statement tonight said:
"The statement of principles which
should govern the employment rela
tion in industry presented to the con
ference today was originally prepared
by the delegates appointed by th
national industrial conference board
and assented to after discussion by
the employers' group, including the
delegates of the United States Cham
ber of Commerce, the farmer associa
tions, the investment bankers and the
"This document will become historic
because it is the first concerted dec
laration by industrial leaders of these
fundamental principles, under the op
eration of which alone American in
dustry must live and move and have
its being if it is to achieve its high
est destiny. It is a constructive, rea
sonable statement of economic laws,
phrased in language sympathetic and
"The employers' group was grati
fied at the many expressions of ap
proval from representatives of the
public in various walks of life which
followed the presenting of the state
ment to the conference."
Anderson, occurred yesterday after
noon at about 4 o'clock. Anderson,
who lives at Fifteenth and Savier
streets, tells an unusual story.
He was engaged at the Eastern &
Western lumber plant, he says, when
he was approached by the two men
who claimed to be officers. The men
told Anderson that he was under ar
rest and took him to a waiting auto
mobile. They then drove him out the
Germahtown road, handcuffing him
and searching his pockets for valua
bles. Stopping the car along a desert
ed stretch of the road, they took
Anderson out, handcuffed his hands
behind a tree, and drove away.
Anderson, after considerable effort,
he says, finally succeeded in getting
free by climbing the tree, which was
only a sapling, and reaching his hands
over the top. . With the handcuffs
still fastened to his wrists, he rushed
to the St. Johns police station to tell
his story. At the time of the robbery
Anderson had but little of value upon
him. but is said to have left a con
siderable sum of money and some
liberty bonds at his rooms.
Anderson's theory is that the men
knew of the securities at his rooms
and took him out of town, hand
cuffing him to a tree in order to be
able to return to town and rob his
quarters. Police officers began an
investigation at once, but up to a
late hour last night had not reported
as to the extent of the robbery at the
man's rooms, in case any robbery oc
curred, nor had they secured a clew
as to the identity of the men, nor
confirmed Anderson's story, except
his appearance with the handcuffs
still on his wrists.

Don't Experiment With Catarrh;
It Often Leads to Serious Trouble
You Will Never Be Cured by
Local Treatment With Sprays.
Catarrh Is a condition of the blood
and can not be cured by local appli
cations of sprays and douches; this
has been proven by the thousands
who have vainly resorted to this
method of treatment.
Catarrh should not be neglected or
experimented with. The wrong treat
ment is Valuable time lost, during
which the disease Is getting a firmer
hold upon its victim, and making it
more difficult for even the proper
treatment to accomplish results.
Though Catarrh makes Ms first ap
pearance In the nostrils, throat and
air passages, - the disease becomes
more and more aggravated and finallv
reaches down into the lungs,' and
everyone recognizes the alarming
conditions that result when the lungs
are affected. Thus Catarrh may be
the forerunner of that most dreaded
and hopeless of all diseases, consump
tion. No local treatment affords per
manent relief. Experience has taught
that S. S. S. Is the one remedy which
attacks the disease at its source, the
blood, and produces satisfactory re
sults in even the worst cases. Catarrh
sufferers are urged to give S. S. S. a
thorough trial. Jt is sold by all drug
