WILSON CALLS ON
(Continued from Fage One.)
The telegram says:
"Discussion of the matters involved
ia the threatened railroad strike has
reached a point which ssakes it highly
desirable that I should personally con
fer with you at the earliest possible,
moment and with the president of any
ether of the railways affected who may
be immediately accessible. Hope you

Kef use Eight Hour Day.
The president's action resulted from
the attitude taken by the railroad man
agers in a statement left at the White
House last night by Elisha Leo, chair
man of their committee. In this they
strongly indicated they would not con
cede the eight hour principle even for
the proposed trial period and that the
strongest coacession they would make
would be to submit the whole matter
to arbitration, the president to nnue
Today the managers showed no dis
position to recede from this position.
Several of them declared they saw poli
tics in the president's effort, since ac
cepting this plan would mean putting
the whole matter over until after elec
tions. The commission could not ac
complish anything tangible before next
spring, they said.
The managers apparently are unmoved
by arguments of the president that his
proposal would result in a system that
would probably enable them to avoid
sudden strikes in the future.
Three ballots have been taken in the

time the managers have voted down

Meeting May Be Historical.
Washington, Aug. 17. The historical
East room of the White House was
ready today for the enactment of which
may be one of the closing incidents in
the titanic struggle between the four
powerful brotherhoods of railway em
ployes and the operators of the rail
ways of the United States.
Six hundred and forty district chair
men of the railroad workers are here to
meet the president this afternoon in the
East room. The president has ready for
them hia suggestion of a solution for
the situation that has menaced the
country for the past several weeks.
The definite terms of the president 's
proposal are not known, but the basic
idea Is an agreement to be made be
tween the railroads and the brother
hoods, whereby the eight hour day
shall go into effect at once. With this
in effect, the question of methods of en
forcing it whether by means of the
time and a half overtime, or by some
other means will be mnde the subject
of investigation aud adjustment, with
the federal government perhaps taking
part in the adjustment,
The railroad brotherhoods have in
sisted steadily that there is no other
effective method of enforcing the eight
The Main Problem.
The president's problem, if the rail
roads definitely concede the eight hour
principle to the extent of agreeing to
give it a trial seems to be to convince
the railroad men that the time and half
overtime issue should be held in abey
ance during the trial period.
Iuterest rested chiefly in the solemn
session this afternoon in the beautiful
room celebrated only for affairs of so
cial splendor, from the days when Dolly
Madison duneed, down to the present.
The gorgeous state furniture was remov
ed and camp chairs crowded closely to
gether on toe polished floor.
The session beginning at 3 o'clock
was expected to last one hour aud pos
sibly two or three.
The employers' representatives were
serious and for the most part, silent as
the time approached for their gathering
at the White House. What they are pre
pared to eoucede, none would say. borne
of the leading members of the general
committee iudicated their belief that a
way was about to be found to prevent
the clash that seemed inevitable less
than a week ago. But what the way
might be they would not discuss.
Nothing to Debate.
They jammed the corridors of the old
time Pennsylvania Avenue hotels near
the eanitol where they have made their
headquarters and strolled back and
forth along the avenue, keeping always

close to the hotels to be ready in case
of necessity to confer. For the most
part they wore the manner of men who
had reached a conclusion and there was
little debating among themselves.
Occasional groups developed argu
ments all on one side over the merits
of their fight, but the greater num
ber of the district chairmen seemed con
cerned with the task of seeing as much
of Washington as could be seen from
the sidewalks of the avenue.
The employes' sub-committee went
into secret conference at the National
hotel this foreaoon. Judge W. L. Cham
bers of the United States Board of Me
diation and Conciliation was present for
part of the conference but left early.
Judge Chambers brought to the
brotherhood heads during the morning
a question from President Wilson,
based, it is said, on the last communica
tion from the railroad mauagers, oppos
ing the eight hour day. He remained
only seven or eight minutes during
which time he was given his reply.
At 11 o'clock, after conferring with
the employes, Judge Chambers went to
the White House. He took some addi
tional statistics to the president, further
data showing the effect of the applica
tion of the eight hour day to railway
revenues. He says the president, in
formulating the proposition he will
make to both sides, desired full details
of the possible effect on both the work
ing conditions aud railroad incomes.
Want Responsibility Placed.
As to the outlook Chambers would not
Chambers' message from the presi
dent to the employes today asked how
the men understood his proposal. This
was carefully explained and Chambers
informed them that they had not mis-.
taken the chief executive's position.
One of the foremost leaders of the
employes said: "It appears very much
as though the mauagers intend to stand
pat. We are perfectly willing theyi
should do that, as long as the president
stands as judge between the parties.
One little statement from him placiag
the responsibility for any failure to get !
together would be something that neith
er side can afford to face. As for us
we came here with the idea of accept-1
iug what President Wilsoin regarded as .
The employes will accept no tempo
rary settlement of major issues, another
leader said. The question of the eight
hour day, he said, must be determined
finally, though he admitted that per
haps a board of investigation on other
subjects of less importance, would be
acceptable to the men.
When informed that the president
had summoned the railroad presidents
to appear, one of the leaders said: "I
had been expecting that."
May Appeal to Stockholders.
A meeting of the district chairmen
was called for 1 o'clock this afternoon
at the Bijou theatre. In this meeting it
was planned to consider fully the presi
dent s position.
That the president, in summoning the
railway heads by telegraph did not con
sider that he has yet appealed to -the
"ultimate authority," was learned aft
er a long conference he had with Judge
Chambers of the United States Board
of Mediation and Conciliation this aft
ernoon. The expression "ultimate authority"
was used by Chambers. Exactly what
the president has in mind is not known,
but it was thought possible that he may
appeal over the heads of the railway
presidents to the stockholders them
selves, or ask a new referendum vote
by the employes on the proposals he has
made for a settlement.
Khaki Skirts '
Immediately following bis conference
with Judge Chamber the president re
turned to hia library to complete tbv
proposals he is to muke to the 640 rep
resentatives of the brotherhoods when,
they gather in the historic East room of
the White House this afternoon.
Is Against Settlement

Northwestern railroad, was handed
President Wilson's invitation when he

Evanston. Two hours later he was on
his way to Washington.
John M. Glenn, publisher of the
Manufacturers' News, today directed
an appeal to manufacturers to message
President Wilson, upholding the atti
tude of the railroads.
"The Unions took advantage of the
situation existing at tbe time of the
breaking out of the European war and
were given concessions and they now
take udvnntage of the peculiar condi
tions which our country faces. Bight
must be maintained. The issue is a prin
ciple. It may cost something to enforce)
it but it must be enforced sooner or Int
er," the appeal reads.
