Amount Is Fifteen Million Embargo On Shipment to Aus

(United Press staff correspondent.)
Washington, Aug. 28. Fifteen mil
lion dollars bulge in the war cheat of
the railroad brotherhoods.
Thii amount about equally divided
among the four unions is ready today
for distribution among the men should
they need strike relief. It is to be
doled out in portions of $10 a month
among the 40(1,000 men who would be
involved in a national railroad tie-up.
How long it would lust is problematical
for relief might star with the opening
of the strike or might be delayed until
. As the brotherhood men view it, their
mighty war cheat probably would not
be touched in the forthcoming strike
for they believe it would be so brief
that the men would not feel the pinch
.This great war fund has been gather
ed through weekly contributions, cov
ering a long space of time. ' The assess
ment varies according to the members'
earning, but tho total sum per year is
written in fixed thousands. -
One little coda word wired from
Washington to every railruud center in
the country is sufficient to precipitate
the strike. The more than 000 broth
erhood delegates, who left for their
posts yesterday, carried instructions for
running a strike.
Trains on the line will be run to the
Dearest junction; fires will be banked

Ho made the statement to tobacco
growers' representatives who had called
ut the capitol to urge a formal protest
against England's embargo on ship
ments to Austria and Germany, effec
tive Thursday. Confronted with a loss
of $10,000,000 to 15,000,000, tobacco
growers in five states ire panic strick

The English concessions, in conjunc
tion with the embargo on tobacco, the
growers declared, will menu the British-American
company can reduce the
prices paid American growers who will
have no other outlet for the big export

Only 24 of tho biggest brotherhood

i their version they must stand pat on

Tho feeling in the men's quarters is

Fort explained that on information
received at tho state department that
Great Britain would not include tobac
co in embargoed products, farmers had
devoted increased acreage to tobacco.
Placing of tobacco on tho embargo list,
he said, had thrown the growers into a
panic. Unless rcdresB is forthcoming,
Fort said, tobacco prices would drop to
Senator Swnnson urged a drastic pro
test by the state department.
"England doesn't care anything

president again in the near future but
before leaving the committee pointed
out to him that if, as reported, the
date for declaring the strike had been
fixed for September 4, it would force
an early conclusion of the negotiations
and compel tho president to return to
their properties to prepare for the
Order for Strike.
Tho body of the order the executives
"This is to advise that the vote of
the employes in train and engine serv

overwhelmingly in favor of a strike.

Washington. Aug. 28 President Wil
son arrived at tho senate office build
ing at 8:53 p. m. and went into session
with the senate steering committee in
the latter 's committee room.
Senator Reed was in the committee
room alone when the president arriv
ed. The other members of the commit
tee, Kerns, .Taes, O 'Gorman, Thomas,
Cliuherlttin, Owens, Williams and Mar
tin arrived very soon thereafter.
There can be no denying that the
administration feels the railroads thus
far have indicated no desire to con
sider any fair proposition other than
arbitration of the whole dispute, which
the president has not the power to en
force. Ou democratic senator today said
the railroads knew that if a strike were
called they would be beuteu "and ad
mit that the eight hour day would be
forced upon them." He said their in
tentiou then was to say they had been
"coerced into accepting, it,'"

General John Adams of Cincinnati
said, adding that failure of the rail

Here, however, the choicest weather
prevailed, the maximum temperature
yesterday being 08 degrees.
Indications point that this will be
the last national encampment. Sam

that encampments be not held en mas

paid by the encampment.
Commander Brown said it wa9 only
a year or two until the majority will
