congress in which he will recommend
completion of the railway legislative
program outlined by him at the last
session. These recommendations in
clude provisions for the enlargement
of the Interstate Commerce commis
sion and for compulsory investigation
of proposed strikes. The latter is
bitterly opposed by the brotherhood
Railroads to Speak First.
Railroad. executives figured only in
conspicuously in today's activities
here. Their representatives appeared
before the senate interstate commerce
cemmittee and learned that their
spokesmen would be heard first on the
railroad problem generally on next
Brotherhood representatives may
appear before the committee later, but
so far have not indicated formally
their intention to do so.
President Wilson told members of a
committee of the Evansville, Ind.,
Chamber of Commerce, who called
d.uring the day to tell him there would
be a , middle states conference on the
railroad situation in their city early in
December, that he l.op,? there -would
le similar discussions of the problem
in other sections of the United States
and that he wished all business men
would investigate the question in an
open minded way.
Not Certain About Strike.
After their fifteen-minute confer-1
ence with the president the brother
hood heads would admit only that they
had congratulated Mr. Wilson on his
re-election. W. S. Stone, head of the
engineers, declared that he could not
tell now whether a strike would be
called if the eight-hour law was not
put into effect January 1.
Representative Adamson went over
jdans for railroad legislation fully
with the president. Afterward he said
that he had no doubt that the eight
hour law would be upheld by the
courts as constitutional, contending
that the measure was very carefully
framed by lawyers fully familiar with
the situation and with the constitu
tion. Amendments for Bill.
'"I have a bill prepared for addi
tional legislation to meet the situation
which I probably will introduce as
soon as congress convenes," he said.
He added that he believed the inter
state commerce commission, under ex-

isting laws, already had the power to
take wages into consideration in fix
ing freight rates. President Wilson
embodied a recommendation for legis
lation giving this power when address
ing congress on a threatened strike,
but the Georgia representative said he
believed the president would agree
with him in the end.
. 4'I do not think there is anything
in the talk that the railroad men will
call a strike if the eight-hour law is
pending in the courts," said Mr. Ad
amson. "In doing so they would be
running directly contrary to public
opinion and that no man or body of
men can afford to do."
Freight Rates Concerned.
Mr. Adamson also declared it was
his personal opinion that the suits to
test the constitutionality of the eight
hour law were I brought in a further
effort to secure advances in freight
rates and that if any definite assur
ances of increased rates were given
the cases would not be pressed.
The brotherhood heads, still quite
as uncommunicative and mysterious as
they were at the time of the confer
ences which resulted in enactment of
the Adamson law, appeared well
pleased with the situation tonight.
They were particularly elated over
their talk with the president, and the
prospects of addressing mejnbers of
the federation in Baltimore tomor
'0f course we said nothing to the
president but a few words about his
re-election," W. G. Lee, head of the
trainmen, said with a laugh. "Natur

Among the 'notable doings of the
week has been the union of the two
Masonic lodges of this place, which
was consummated on Monday evening
last. It seems to have been the opin
ion of many members of the frater

hard times, the fact that many cf the
founders of both lodges have either
passed away or left town, it would be
more conducive to harmony and lessen
expenses, to unite the two lodges in
one strong, united body. Under a dis
pensation from the grand master, Ma
coy lodge surrendered its charter and
the members thereof almost in a body
were made merbers of Flattsmouth

it was for Macoy to surrender its
charter in preference to No. G was
because No. G owns t the property
known as Masonic block, and it seemed
advantageous in every way that they
should retain this property and the
whole bodv of resident Masons became
interested therein. i
CHIEF OF FOLIGE BAR
CLAY NABS GOAT TKIEF
This afternoon Chief of Police Bar
clay rounded up a sneak thief at the
Burlington station just before time for
the departure of the eastbound train,
No. 2-!, and on which the gentleman
was preparing to make his getaway.
This stranger, who apparently was a
hoboe, was discovered in the act of
lifting a hunting coat from the office
of W. W. Wasley, the automobile
man, in the Wetenkamp building, by
Herbert Ransom, who was driving
past on a wagon at the time, when
he saw the stranger conceal the hunt
ing coat beneath his other coat and
start down in the direction tof the
depot. Just about this time Chief
Barclay came along and Mr. Ransom
related the circumstances of the case
to the chief, who hastened down to
the depot and landed the light-fingered
gentleman and pieced him in jail. The
stolen coat was discovered on his per
son. It was certainly quick work or.
the part of both Mr. Ransom and the
chief of police in landing the man.
There are few persons who can com
mit any offense and get away from
Chief Barclay when he starts after
them, as he most always has them
safe in jail before many minutes

CIS JOSEPH DEAD
Death Occurs at Schoenbrunn Castle
in Vianna, Says Dispatch
London, Nov. 22. (:J:41 a. m.) Em
peror Francis Joseph died last ni.q;ht
at i) o'clock at Schoenbrunn castle,
according: to a Reuter dispatch from
Vienna, by way of Amsterdam.
The first intimation received here
that Empercr Francis Joseph's health
was again the subject of solicitation
was contained in a dispatch dated
November 12, emanating from a
Vienna newspaper agency, which re
ported that the emperor had been
suffering for some days from a slight
catarrhal affection. Subsequent re
ports from various sources, more or
less conflicting, represented that his
condition was becoming worse, but
none of them indicated that his ill
ness threatened to reach a critical
stage, and from Vienna came assur
ances that he was still able to give
audience to one or more ministers
Hint of Grave Condition.
What gave some credence to the
suspicion that his condition was
much graver than the official bul
letins indicated was the report, which
still lacks official confirmation, that
it had been decided to associate the
heir to the throne, Arch Duke Charles
Francis, in the government of the
country and that he was to assume
the position December 2d, the' GSth
anniversary of the emperor's ascen
sion to the throne.
So far as is known here Arch Duke
Charles is still at the front, in com
mand of the army.

Retreating Rumanians, Outflanked,
Appear Now to Ie Trapped
London, Nov. 21. Autro-Uerman
forces in southwest Rumania have
captured Craiova and the Rumanians
are retreating, according to the an
nouncement of the Berlin war office.
In the Jiul valley Rumanians are
outflanked at Craiova, and seemingly
must be caught in the vise of the Aus-tro-Germans
from the north and south.
The Teutonic allies are advancing in
the Alt valley, where Petrograd ad

According to Paris, the entente al
lied troops north of Monastir are still
pressing the Germans and Bulgarians.
West of Monastir Italians have re
pulsed counter attacks delivered by
the Teutonic allies. An unofficial dis
patch from Saloniki says the Serbians
have captured seven villages west and
northwest of Monastir.
No Doubt in London.
The occupation of the Rumanian
town of Craiova, reported by German
official headquarters tonight, has not
yet been confirmed from the entente
side, but the fact that no Rumanian
official report has been issued since
Sunday leaves little reason to doubt
The official reports from both Ger
man and Russian headquarters 'the
ast two days had prepared the pub
lic for this news of the success of
the central powers' thrust at Rumania,
but it had been hoped that Russia,
which was known to be sending rein
forcements into Rumania as fast as
possible, might be in time to avert
