Questions at Issue Between Sailors and1
The worldwide strike of seamen and
firemen has been fomenting for some
time. A year ago the Seamen's union
of Great Britain asked the Internation

organization, to agree to the formation
of a national conciliation board, so that
questions at Issue might be discussed.
The federation refused. It is said that
300,000 men are involved.
The general strike ultimatum con
tains the following demands:
The constitution of a conciliation
National minimum rate of wages.
Manning scales for stokehold, deck
Abolition of medical examinations by
doctor privately appointed by the ship
Abolition of the engagement of sea
men in the shipping federation's offices.
Right of seamen to a portion of their
wages in port during a voyage.
Right of seamen to have a represent
ative present when signing on.
Hours of labor and rates of overtime
to be fixed.
Improved forecastle accommodation.

Stewart frankly admitted the other
day before the house committee on the
civil service that clerks had been dis
charged from the government service

were good clerks, . Stewart said, but
