Deadlock en Peace Treaty
By EDWARD W. PICKARD.
Alarm over tho condition of Presl-
dent Wilson wns considerably allayed
by the favorable reports Issued last
week by ids physicians. He was kent
quiet, In spite of his protests, and was
not permitted to pay any attention to
the mass of public business awaiting
him. The result of this treatment was
his steady Improvement, though ho
may not he able to resume his ofllcinl
duties for some time. The Inactivity
Irked him greatly and Mrs. Wilson and
the doctors hud to exercise their In-
genuity to keep him from getting In
communication with public men.
Of course the president could not
nttend the opening of the industrial
conference which ho had summoned,
but it began Its .sessions. In the Pnn-

present, equally divided nmomr the

suggestions of all sorts und from nil

Ihe somewhat hazy but mlghtv task
set for this conference Is the discovery
of somo method of accomplishing In,
dustrlnl peace, of bringing about an
understanding between employers nnd
woricers, or ending or lessening strikes
und lockouts so that production may bo
increased and high costs lowered.
Every group, and probably every Indi

If Samuel Gompers and the other
conservatives who have dominated,
and presumably still dominate the
American Federation of Labor, are
wholly sincere, they must bo secretly

steel strike. It Is becoming more and

forced and is being tnannged by the
radicals who have been trying to gain

Senator Cummins says his commit
tee on interstate commerce Is going to
force a vote in congress on two great
labor questions compulsory arbitra
tion and the right of organized labor
to strike regardless of tho public wel
fare. This Is to be done by a favorublo
report on the Cummins railroad bill.
The measure has provisions prohibit
ing strikes and lockouts on the trans
portation systems nnd creating a board
before which disputes between tbo
workers and the corporations must be
taken for settlement. This board
would have four member from each
side, and In case of n deadlock the
question at Issue would bo referred to
i board of five named by the president.
Mr. Cummins predicted the senate
would approve of tlio nntl-strlke fea
tures of the bill, despite the opposition
of the American Federation ot Labor
and the railway brotherhoods.
The predicted deadlock In the sen
ate seemed last week In a fair way to
become a reality. Little progress to-.
ward a vote was made and Senator
Hitchcock told Secretory Tumulty to
let tbe president know there would be
nothing concerning tbe treaty requlr
lug bis attention for some time. The
probnblo date of Until action on the
pact has been advanced to November
10 and there Is n chance that tbe dead
lock will tiot be broken until much lat
er. The Democratic senators who fa
vor the treaty as it stands, being nu
merous enough to defeat ratification,
seem determined to compel at least tho
adoption of the very mildest of reser
vations Instead of the Lodge program.
Mr. Hitchcock has admitted tbe neces
sity of somo sort of a compromise, but
whnt tho president will be willing to
accept, in view of his uncompromising
statements, Is unknown.
