WASHINGTON'. Feb. 11. Director
General Hines, failing to reach an
agreement with the representatives
of the more than 2,000,000 railroad
employes on demands for increased
. i ,j . i i- . .. . . i : l.
r wages, osciucu lomgni iu ouuiuii iu
case to President Wilson for de
cision. The appeal to the president Is to be
taken at the request of the union
leaders after they had conferred with
Mr. nines for two hours late today,
and after he had Informed them there
was no hope of an agreement under
present conditions. Mr. Hines will
send to tho white house the state
ments of the unions, together with
his own representations In the Con
troversy. The president thus is called on to
determine whether the government
will grant the increased wages or
transfer tho wage demand contro
versy to the corporations soon to re
gain control of the properties.
Break la Sfot Final.
Submission of the claims and argu
ments to the president, while tempo
rarily ending the general negotia
tions, does not mean a final break,
railroad administration officials ex
plained. Neither members of Mr.
Hines staff nor tho union spokesmen
Indicated that they felt that ada4,

cussions were ended. Regardless of
the president's decision in the mat
ter, the difficulties could be ironed
out after return of the roads through
machinery likely to be set up by pend
Mr. Hines' refusal to grant the em
ployes' demands apparently was based
entirely on the fact that federal con
trol soon will cease. The director
general was understood to have kept
this angle consistently before the
union men. together with theargu
ment that it would be unfair to the
thousands of owners of railroad etock
to Increase the expenditures of their
corporations, when , tho government
would be responsible for the revenues
obtained for so brief a period. .
Inane Vp to President.
In explanation of his action. Mr.
Hines issued this statement:
"Since February 3 the director-general
has had frequent conferences
with the chief executives of the rail
road labor organizations for the pur
pose of devising means for disposing
of the pending claims for wage in-
). creases. During these conferences tho
executives of tho labor organizations
have expressed their views with great
abilily and frankness. N
N"The director-general has not been
able to agree with thorn as to how
ine problem should be disposed of in
view of the early termination of fed
eral control, and is now laying before
the president the representations of
the executives of the organizations
and also his own report for the pur
pose of obtaining the president's deci
sion in tiie .premises.
"In any event the conferences have
been decidedly helpful in bringing out
a clearer development as to the real
issues Involved and as to ; the char
acter of evidence pertinent to those

has bicn characterised by courtesy as
well as candor and with a sincere
purpose on the part of all to. try to

Lifting of Veil of Secrecy Reveals
President's Illness Is Blood
Clot on Brain.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington. Feb. 11. From this time
on Washington will be skeptical of
reports given out as to President
Wilson's condition. There was an ap
parent willingness to accept the state
ment of Dr. Hugh H. Young of Johns
Hopkins university that Mr. Wilson
had practically recovered.
But, if there should be any recur
rence of the president's illness, which
it is the unanimous hope will not
come, the most alarming reports will
be believed. The lifting of the veil
by Dr. Toung discloses the fact that
the most alarming of the rumors
which circulated for weeks regarding
Mr. Wilson's condition were true. Yet
those who gave currency to these
reports were' denounced as knaves.
Administration newspapers severely
criticised those who intimated that
Mr. Wilson's illness was due to any
thing more than a temporary exhaus
tion and Dr. Grayson either directly
or Indirectly denied euch rumors.
Virtually the only report that Dr.
Young's statement does not confirm
is one to the effect that Mr. Wilson
suffered a brain lesion. And how
near to the truth was this report, for
which Senator Moses of New Hamp
shire was pilloried by administration
friends and newspapers throughout
the country, is shown by this passage
from the physician's statement:
"As you know, in October last we
diagnosed the president's illness as
cerebral thrombosis which affected
his left arm and leg."
Webster's dictionary defines Vthrom
bosis" as "a clot of blood formed in
the passage of a vessel and remain
ing at the site of coagulation." Those
contemplating this condition will not
wonder at reports that he had suf
fered a brain lesion. Whether he suf
fered cerebral thrombosis or a brain
lesion will strike the average In
dividual as a difference not worth
quarreling over and today there was
the very common realization that,
after all, the public had been duped.
"And, after all. it was all true,"
was a comment heard on every hand,
expressed with some feeling of dis
When Dr. Young began the part of
the statement quoted above with as
you know in October last we diag
nosed the president's Illness" as so
and so, he was practicing a cunning
Ait of artifice. It was pointed out to
day, because, as he knows, the public
was never permitted to know any
thing of the kind.
No one could be found today who
had ever seen a White House bulletin
conveying any such information, or
had ever heard of euch admission
even privately from the president's
physicians or attendants.
In view of the disclosures the pub
lic will be convinced that Mr. Wilson
is recovering or has recovered when
he is again seen upon the streets and
at the theaters.

Judge Overrules Request for Alien

BY BEN HUR LAMPMAN.
MONTESANO, Wash., Feb. fl.
(Special.) Through the admission in
evidence of two confessions, alleged
to have been made voluntarily by
Loren Roberts, one of the 11 I. W. W.
defendants, on trial in superior court
for the murder of Warren O. Grimm,
the state today ripped the veil be
hind which moved the action pf the
Centralia armistice day attack.
Scarcely secondary in importance
was the testiniDny of Bert G. Clark,
attorney, Seattle, an expert on ball
istics, who identified the caliber of
the bullets which killed Warren O.
Grimm and Arthur McElfresh. Grimm
was slain by a .38-55 caliber bullet,
testified Clark, while McElfresh met
death by a .22-caliber high-power
missile. . ,
The state has offered in evidence a
.38-55 rifle, of which the defense has
dented all knowledge, and has alleget
it was fired from the Avalon hotel,
killing Grimm. Loren Roberts, from
Seminary hill, .Is alleged to have used
the only .22-caliber high-power rifle
possessed by the I. W. W. riflemen.
' Uvidence Ruled In.
Almost the entire day was given
over to argument anent the admissi
bility of the confessions and to their
reading. Judge John M. Wilson, pre
siding, ruled the documents admissi
ble as evidence and denied the re
quest of tho defense to produce tes
timony at this time in support of th
contention that Roberts was- insane
when he made the statements, and is
insane even now.
The first confession, uttered at
Olympia November 17, had been
signed and sworn to by the defendant.
The second and supplementary con
fession, uttered at Centralia Novem
ber 24, bore no signature, testimony
showing that Roberts had refused to
sign it Both are amplifications of
the original confession made by
Roberts on the night of his surrender,
and published at that time by The
Juror Are AdmonlMhed.
Judge Wilson, in ruling on the ad
mission of the documents, admonished
the jurors that the statements herein
must be considered only insofar as

Fourteen - Year - Old Farm Lad
Probably Saves Many Lives
and Is Rewarded.
What might have been a disastrous
train .wreck costing a'heavy toll of
lives was narrowly averted three
miles this side of Hood River yes
terday afternoon when Homer Lovell,
a 14-year-old farmer boy, leaped in
front of the on-rushing O.-W. R. & N.
passenger train No 5 from the east
and by frantic signals brought it to a
halt within a few feet of a heavy
rock slide which barred the way.
.. The lad came upon the slide just
a few minutes before the passenger
train was due to reach that point.
Rushing back up the track until he
saw the train approaching, he stood
on the inside of the track and made
a frantic effort to signal the nreman.
Unable to attract the fireman's at
tention to his danger signal, thej
youth jumped across the tracK just,
ahead of the train and waved .his hat
desperately at the engineer.
Sensing the danger, the engineer
brought his train to a stop. The en
gine crunched to a complete halt just
a few rods from the heavy boulders
of rock weighing several tons, which
barred the way.
In appreciation of the boy's hero
ism, which the passengers eaid averted
a catastrophe, they took up a collec
tion at the suggestion of Mr. Adams
and procured a purse of $50 to pre
sent to the boy.
The money was turned over to

Candidate Believes Traditional

Should Be Fully Safeguarded.
CHICAGO, Feb. 11. General Leon
ard Wood, replying today to the re
quest of Senator William E. Borah
for views of republican party candi
dates on the league of nations and
the peace treaty, said he believed
"that we should accept the league of
nations as modified and safeguarded
by existing Lodge reservations.1
General Wood declared that in hia
opinion the people at large had indi
cated they favored the treaty, pro
vided America's rights were fully
safeguarded, and that he did not be
lieve it necessary to delay considera
tion for a general election.
The reply, made public tonight, fol
lows: "I believe that we should accept
the league of nations as modified and
safeguarded by the existing Lodge
reservations," reservations that Ameri-
canize and safeguard our traditional
poi(;icai reservations which leave
America absolutely free and untram-
meled to follow the will of her own
people in all questions of foreign and
"I, of course, at all times favor get

country where it is practicable. How
ever, in view of the fact that the
people have clearly indicated as I
see it that they are in 'favor of the
treaty if our traditional policies, In
terests and freedom of action are ful
ly safeguarded, it seems unnecessary
to delay this most Important ques

shall continue to be in favor of, one
well-established foreign policy of this

BIG UNION FUND AVAILABLE
Railroad Brotherhoods Could
Easily Raise $4,000,000.
McARTHUR DEFENDS ACTS
Oregon Representative Considers
It . Honor to Be Opposed by
Railroad Strike Advocates.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington, Feb. 11. Representa
tives Webster of Washington state
and McArthur of Oregon who are
marked for defeat by the American
Federation of Labor, according to
the political programme announced a
few days ago, have some distinguished
Frederick Gillett, speaker of the
house, also has been placed on the
blacklist by reason of a recent speech
which stirred President Gompers of
the American Federation to a sharp
reply. There is no doubt that labor
will make the fight which has been
threatened, and there will be a cam
paign in several districts such as has
never been witnessed before.
There will be abundant funds for
the fight it having been privately
boasted that it would be possible to
throw $50,000 or more Into any con
gressional district where labor seeks
to unseat a representative to do the
bidding of Mr. Gompers. This boast
is warranted by the facts, because the
railroad brotherhoods will be at the
fore In the fight, which is to be
directed with the most pressure on
those who have supported anti-strike
legislation or who voted against the
Anderson amendment to the Esch
railroad bill confirming all of the
present high wages of the railroad
workmen.- . ....
Hum Fund Available.
The Plumb plan league, which is
more Interested than any other ele
ment In the fight, can raise $2,000,000
by the assessment of only $1 on each
member and by making it $2 the enor
mous sum of $4,000,000 can be raised.
The league could hardly spend even
half that amount legitimately in Its
plan to secure control of the railroad
properties, therefore much would be
left for the prosecution of Its fight
on independent members of congress.
As there are less than 100 districts
In which a fight is likely to be made,
it can easily be seen that very large
sums will be available where needed
most. Even $100,000 could be expend
ed against Representative Webster or
McArthur, who are said to hold pre
ferred positions on the union black
list, and leave abundant money for
Some one will ask how they can
spend so much without running coun
ter to the law? That will be simple.
As an organization it Is possible for
the American Federation of Labor or
the Plumb plan league to expend
$1,000,000 In a single district, or as
much more as is available without
fear of prosecution under the corrupt
practices act. As long as the money
Is not placed in tho hands of the can
didate, tho law cannot reach those
who use It. A candidate for the house
can spend only $5000 under the law.
McArthur Makes Statement.
Representative McArthur issued
statement today, in which he said: "1
am not surprised that I am on the
American Federation blacklist I am
really glad I am on the list, for it is
'quite an honor to be opposed by those
forces who wish to set up a class gov
ernment In this country. The ultimate
end and aim of the federation is a
government in which no man without
a union card would have a voice. The
radical element In control of the fed
eration will find that the American
people will not take kindly to such a
scheme. Half of the membership of
the unions will oppose it in the
secrecy . of the election booth.
"The labor union people are opposed
to me because I advocate anti-strike
railroad legislation In the Interests of
all the American people. If they wish
to make a campaign issue out of this
at the coming primaries, I accept the
challenge. Let them trot out a candi
date or indorse one who is willing to
go on the hustings and tell the peo
ple that the strike is preferable to the
settlement of labor disputes by a gov
