to Confer With View to Ad
THE MORNING OREGONIAN, FRIDAY, MAT 28, 1920

rants was averted late yesterday,

board of the three unions involved.
the soft-drink dispensers, waiters
and waitresses and cooks, visited F.
W. Beach, secretary of the Portland
Caterers' association, and asked for a
conference with a committee repre
senting the caterers.
The caterers will meet at the Cham

The following committee was named
by the union leaders: R. R. Hatch,

and O. Hunt, secretary of the soft
drink union; Ernest H. Williams, sec
retary of the waiters union; J. N.
Butler, C T. Frederick, secretary of
tile cooks' union.
Strike Not Contemplated.
"First of all, we want to assure the
caterers and the general public that
we are just as much interested in
the Shrine convention as any other
group of citizens; secondly, there will
be no strike or walkout as antici
pated by the catering industry and so
declared by them in the newspapers,"
Mr. Johnson said to Mr. Beach.
"We want to reiterate that our
agreement will be lived jip to by the
culinary workers of Portland. We
feel our employers want to be fair.
We want to meet them at least half
way and in the same spirit of mutual
"We are, therefore, asking our em
ployers to appoint a committee to
meet with the sub-committee of the
joint boards to discuss the entire
situation eo that the minds of the
skeptical may be, eased and to see
what can be done to promote our
mutual best Interests and the inter
eats of the many thousands of peo
ple who will be here in June."
Request Goes to Board.
"And if there is any member of our
committee who cannot understand
those principles we shall put him off
and elect someone else," Mr. Butler
Mr. Beach asserted he was but the
mouthpiece of bis organization, but
that he would put the request of the
joint board, which had been before
that body yesterday in the form of a
motion, before the caterers in a spe
cial meeting today.
"And if they appoint a committee
we can meet with them as soon as
their session is adjourned We shall
be able to get our men together in a
few minutes," added' Mr. Johnson.
There are 1650 members of the
unions involved In Portland and 220
eating establishments have signed the
original agreement with the unions.
Sixty-five restaurants and hotels are
members of the Caterers' association,
Mr. Beach said.

SI orris Silverman Held IjO Grand
Jury Under $5000 Bonds
Morris Silverman, a Portland money
lender, was held to the federal grand
jury under $5000 bonds yesterday on
. i charge of purchasing altered war
tavinpa stamps. The stamps which
:Ue government alleges were pur
:hased by Silverman are a part of the
oot taken when bank robbers robbed
he Bank of Dayton several months
I Silverman is said to have admitted
f to Operative Walters of the United
States secret service that he pur
chased the stamps in Portland. After
holding the stamps for two months
or more, Silverman, according to As
sistant United States Attorney Reames,
went to San Francisco where he dis
posed of them through several dif
In the complaint filed against Sil
verman and on which he was heard
yesterday before United States Com
missioner Drake, he is accused of
having purchased 140 of the stolen $5
war savings stamps, but federal in
vestigators said this is but a small
part of the number which were stolen
from the Bank of Dayton and which
were sold at San Francisco.
The three persons in San Francisco
to whom Silverman is said to have
sold the altered stamps will be brought
to Portland early next month to ap
pear before the grand jury when it
makes a complete investigation of the
case. It was said yesterday at the
federal building that others probably
will be Involved.
Evidence at the commissioner's
hearing yesterday developed that the
tamps were purchased in lots of 100.
The stamps were not attached to the
certificates when bought, and the
mucilage also had been removed, thus
indicating plainly that they had been
In addition to the lack of mucilage.
It was shown that the registered num
bers on all stamps had been removed
by acid. Under a strong glass the
register numbers can be read, thus
giving the government positive proof
that they are a part of the large num
ber of stamps stolen from the Bank
