Washington, June 6. A resolu

cerning an alleged fund for the pur-j
pose oi conducting a publicity cam
paign, was introduced today by Sen
ator Heflin, democrat, Alabama.
The preamble stated it was charg
ed that such a publicity fund exist
ed and that the board used the mon
ey to pay for "propaganda praising!
while condemning senators who dis
agree with the board."
Mr. Heflin asked for immediate
consideration of the resolution, but
Senator McLane. republican. Con
necticut, chairman of the banking
committee, objected and considera
tion went over until tomorrow.
The Home of the Soul
In olden times, it was believed
that the seat of the soul was the
stomach, most likely for the reason
that a man is never so completely
used up as when his stomach is out
of order. For the cure of ordinary
stomach troubles, there is nothing
quite so prompt and satisfactory as
Chamberlain's Tablets. They streng
then the stomach and enable it to
perform its functions naturally. They
only cost a quarter. Weyrich & Had

Cincinnati, June S. President
Harding will be appealed to by the
leaders of 1.200,000 railway work
ers, part of whom have already re
ceived wage cuts from the railroad
labor board, due July 1, in an effort
to stave off further reductions in
treir pay envelopes, it was decided at
a conference of rail union heads to
night. Leaders of the 11 railway em
ployes organizations which decided
Tuesday to take a strike vote of their
memberships, agreed tonight to out
line a letter to the president present
ing their argument for higher wages
or at least no further reductions. A
committee of union executives was
appointed by B. M. Jewell, presi
dent of the railway employes depart
ment of the American Federation of
Labor, to draft the letter.
Cut Due July 1
Approximately $ 110,000.000 will
be lopped from the payrolls of the
400.000 shopcrafts and the 500.000
maintenance of way men under or
ders of the board July 1. The new
rates were branded as "starvation"
wages by union leaders and it is their
intention, in a letter to President
Harding to demand whether the
country's chief executive thinks these
wages sufficient "to maintain an
American standard of living and
properly sustain a family."
It is understood that the letter
will contain specific figures on what
the railroad men consider an ade
quate wage and will endeavor to re
fute the position of the railroad la
bor board as set forth in their re
cent wage reduction decisions.
Plan to Avert Strikes
Is Urged at Convention
Cincinnati, June 8. Establish
ment of national agencies to elimin
ate strikes and solve other troubles
of the building industry was favored
by John Donlin. president of the
Building Trades department of the
American Federation of Labor, who
told the department's annual meet
ing here that the "whole nation is
tired of strikes and lockouts and dis
gusted with institutions that make
them possible."
"Unless the industry remedies its
troubles," he said, "we must admit
the industrial court is necessary."
For solving the strike problems
Mr. Donlin advocated a board of la
bor union officials with responsibil
ity for strikes, and he compared its
authority in strike control with that
of congress in making war. For oth
er troubles of the industry, he favor
ed periodical meetings of the union
chiefs to promote harmony among
the various crafts and also the crea
tion, under supervision of a govern
ment department, a council of all
elements in any way connected with
the industry.
"The only way to minimize strikes
and lockouts is to minimize such au
thority as can order a lockout or
strike,'? he said, adding that persons
responsible for strikes in cities are
"always in the minority" and often
include "hired disturbers."
Two other departments of the fed
eration also held their annual meet
ings, the gathering of the metal
trades union delegates being marked
by the adoption of a resolution ap
proving President James O'Connell's
report complaining that the govern
ment; administration was hostile to
labor and added that President Hard
ing favored a national board found
ed on the principle of the Kansas
industrial court.
Lincoln. June 8. Announcement
today by Governor McKelvie that he
intended to have the special primary
and election to elect a successor to
Congressman C. Frank Jleavis of this
district held at the same time the
regular primars- and election are
held, has caused much concern among
the five republicans and two demo
crats seeking the nomination.
They don't know whether to file
for the unexpired term and the regu-
jlar term or whether to file merely
for regular term and permit someone
who wishes to have the word con
gressman attached to his name for
the remainder of his life, to get the
honor unopposed.
The fear is that if their names
appear as candidates for two offices,
it will confuse the voters.
Lieutenant Goveronor P. A. Bar
rows, one of the regular candidates
for the nomination, took the bit in
his teeth and filed for the unexpired
term. Other candidates were con
sulting with political advisers on the
wisdom of the Barrows course.

Senator Borah, of Idaho, Declares In
vestigation Will be Launched
If Methods Ineffective.
Washington, June 9. Congres
sional investigation of prices charg
ed by bituminous coal operators and
retailers was promised by Senator
Borah of Idaho, chairman of the
senate labor committee, at a confer
ence with Secretary Hoover of the
Department of Commerce, if the basic
price scale established at conferences
between Mr. Hoover with committees
of producing operators are made the
basis for profiteering.
Secretary Hoover was said to have
assured Senator Borah that in fur
ther conferences with operators and
dealers he would do his utmost to
prevent profiteering and to obtain
price adjustments to protect the pub
lic, and Senator Borah was under
stood to have agreed to withhold any
investigation pending the outcome of
Mr. Hoover's action.
The subjects discussed between
Secretary Hoover and Senator Borah
were said to have been the price
agreements negotiated through Mr.
Hoover and possible congressional
action, including legislation.
It was said that Senator Borah
had no desire to interfere with Mr.
Hoover's price negotiations, so long
as they were not made the means
for charging excessive prices, but it
was said Senator Borah had ques
tioned the legality of the Hoover
price agreements.
The conference lasted an hour.
It was understood that Mr. Hoover
would proceed forthwith to securing
adjustment of prices based on a
maximum price of $3.50 a ton and
also to take steps to prevent opera
tors from charging unreasonable
prices to retailers.
Freight Bates and Bailroad Wages to
be Dealt With from Stand
point of Patrons.
Chicago, June 9. Freight rates
and railroad wages will be dealt
with from the point of view of ship
pers and carriers by the newly orga
nized associated traffic club of
America, in an effort to influence
public opinion and policies, accord
ing to an outline of its objects made
by the officers here today. Those
who have promoted theorganization
sav that its work will be much the
same as that contemplated in recent
proposals of a national transporta
tion institute, supported by both
shippers and carriers, "for the edu
cation of the public and the support
of wise transportation policies."
They announce that the organiza
tion hopes to impress upon the presi
dent and congress "the kind of men
that should be appointed to the in
terstate commerce commission," al
though it will refrain from recom
mending individuals.
Some of the questions to be con
sidered will probably relate to the
value of the United States railroad
labor board; proposals to amend the
rate-making section of the transpor
tation act so that "there shall not be
a mandate to the interstate commerce
commission to make the level of
rates such that the carriers will earn
an adequate revenue; restoration of
power of the state policy in respect
to a merchant' marine, and the pro
posed St. Lawrence canal.
It is estimated that there are twenty-five
or more "industrial" traffic
clubs in which shippers, but not
carriers, are represented.
The association which was organ
ized at a meeting attended by fifty
representatives of twenty-five of the
seventy-five or eighty traffic clubs in
which both carriers and shippers are
represented, will seek to Induce th
industrial clubs to become eligible to
membership in the association by ad
mitting representatives of carriers.

Aberdeen. S. D.. June 8. Competi
tion in business is coming back into
the world with a vengeance, and the
merchant, manufacturer or banker
who expects to get ahead from this
time on must realize that lie must
fight his -way upward, declared Geo.
Woodruff of Chicago, vice president
of the National Bank of the Republic,
in an address before the South Da
kota bankers' association here today.
"Advertising a Bank" was the sub
ject cf Mr. Woodruff's address.
Advertising, he asserted, is the
most effective of all weapons in the
fight for business, and among the
various kinds of advertising news
paper advertising is unquestionably
the "Big Bertha" of them all.
"The big idea." said Mr. Woodruff
spelling the word "idea," "is to ac
complish four things. These four
things may be easily remembered be
cause written in acrostic style, they
spell the word idea.
"The four words for which the
letters stand are Interest. Desire,
Enthusiasm and Action."
Newspaper advertising must be
supported by more direct advertisinc,
he continued This, he said, can be
done through house organs, personal
appeal letters, blotters, folders, book
lets, calendars and novelties.
"Bankers who do not believe that
advertising pays are steadily retiring
to the background," Mr. Woodruff
continued. "This is surely not to
the advantage of our country, fur
bank publicity is daily turning
spenders into savers and creating
that spirit of universal thrift upon
which the future economic stahility
of America must necessarily bo
