American Mediation Informally Sug
gested By Fern, But Chile
Acquiescence is Awaited.
W'afihingtcm, June 8. An ap
proach toward American mediation
in the Chilean-Peruvian conference
here has been made informally by
Peru, but Chile's acquiescence In the
step is still awaited.
The tangled affairs of the confer
ence are understood to have been
laid before Secretary Hughes In de
tail by Ambassador Pezet for the
Peruvians, among whom It was said
tonight that the Chileans had ex
pressed their Intention of making a
similar move throush the Chilean
ambassador, Senor Mathieu.
OScials of the Chilean delegation
declared, however, that they recall
ed no such agreement, and that It
had not been decided whether an ex
ercise of "good offices" by Mr. Hnghes
shouli be suggested. Senor Mathieu
it was understood, so far bad made
no appointment to see the president.
In this situation the state depart
ment was silent, but officials indi
cated that no move by the Washing
ton government could be expected
until both sides had shown their
readiness for It. Should the Chileans
second the Peruvian suggestion, how
ever, the department is ready to
render whatever service It can to
avert an open break.
Ambassador Pezet's explanation of
the Peruvian side of the case to
Mr. Hughes is understood to have
been entirely informal, and to have
omitted any definite request for me
diation. At the same time, it is said
to have been strongly indicated that
Peru would welcome heartily the
friendly and Impartial aid of the sec
retary in breaking what appears to
many diplomatic observers to ap
proximate a conference deadlock.
Why Suffer from Rheumatism?
Do you know that nine out of
every ten cases of rheumatism are
simply rheumatism of the muscles or
chronle rheumatism, neither of which
require any internal treatment? The
pain may be relieved by applying
Chamberlain's Liniment thus making
sleep and rest possible, and. that cer
tainly means a great deal to any one
afflicted with rheumatism. Weyrich

HiGH COURT OF
THE LAND IS ASSAIL
ED BY GOMPERS
Labor Leader Interprets Colorado
Decision as Negation of Rights
of Unions to Strike.
Cincinnati, June 9. Protests of
organized labor, as voiced here to
day at preliminaries for the annual
convention next week of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor, centered
against the supreme court, the con
gress and state legislatures in gen
eral. Samuel Gompers, president of the
federation, in addressing a club of
business men, interpreted the su
preme court decision in the celebrat
ed Coronado coal case as a negation
of the right to strike, and declared
that organized labor would appeal to
congress for new legislation setting
aside the decision.
Will Not Dodge Fight
In criticizing the supreme court,
Mr. Gompers said that he expected
to be "taken strictly to account" for ,
his utterances, adding that "I do net
run away from a fight."
"But. it ha scome to a pretty pass."
he continued, "when an American!

ed congress and state legislatures as
enemies of labor, and declared for
labor's active preparation in the fall
campaigns in an effort to elect its
friends regardless of their politics.
In his speech Mr. Gomper3 said
the Coronado decision made interna'
tional unions, endorsing strikes, lia
ble for damages, and he asserted this
meant the unions must withstand
"constant litigation or get out of
business." . ...
"If yon compel men and women,
regardless of conditions," he contin
ued, "to work against their will, you
have re-established slavery. Some peo
ple seem to think now Is the time to

ple, reduce wages and break up their
organizations and under the 'open

In this connection, he warned
against "driving the bargain too
hard," asserting that a "day of reck
oning will come." and adding that
the organized workers are the "great

try. Referring to rail union chiefs,
he said they prevented strikes, which
