Instructions have been sent to the
United States attorney at Chicago,
the attorney general said, to notify
counsel for the union that leading
official of the shopmen' organiza

records, would be required before the
court when the case i agin called.
Both in government and labor cir
cle, complete ignorance was asserted
of any actual or impending negotia
tion looking to the settlement of the
strike. It was a matter of common
knowledge, however, that several
railroads still held views in favor of
separate agreements expressed at the

Senator Watson, republican, Indi

course, asserting that it was the only
action possible in the emergency
which the country faced.
The suggestion that settlement ne

through third parties was seen in the
statement of machinist officials that
their organizations was not invited

A. P.) Return from 1.51)0 precincts

state senatorial nomination today
gave Senator La Follette 20,464; W.
A. Ganricld, 80,920.

Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 6. Senator
Robert M. La Follette has been re
nominated by the republicans of Wis
consin by a majority that at midnight
was figured around the 150,000 mark.
Gov. John J. Blames plurality
ranges around the 100,000 figure and
probably will be larger than that. He
was the La Follette candidate. Ap
parently the entire 'La Follette state
ticket has been swept to a victory by
the primary results which are of the
landslide variety, as viewed by
"Hob's" supporters. The only office
at issue is that of attorney general.
Milwaukee was swept into the La
Follette column when the first figures
began to appear from the notably
"labor" sections of the city. The
senator's lead in Milwaukee over W.
A. Ganfield, the. candidate of the
La Follctte opposition, is estimated
at between 20,000 and 25,000.
May Mean Election.
It is now a serious question as to
whether the democrats or the so
cialists polled sufficient votes to per
mit either one of them to show as a
"party" under the Wisconsin law in
The democrats had no contests
worthy of mention and there has
been little tabulation, at the mid
night hour, of the democratic vote.
The party needs 25,000 votes record
ed officially in today's primary to get
a place on the November ballot. The
sole democratic candidate for United
States senator was Mrs. Jessie Jack
Hooper. Unless 25.000 is shown in
the official returns, Senator La Fol
lette will have no opponent in No
vember and his nomination yester
day is equivalent to election.
Senator La Follette gets the great
est majority than he ever has se
cured in a direct vote in Wisconsin.
He was permitted by the course of
the campaign to get all the wets,
most 'of the drys, the railroad men
and the bulk of the labor vote.
Nevada Vote Light.
Reno, Nev., Sept. 6 The primary
election vote in Nevada yesterday
was light, reports received last night
indicated. It wa estimated that not
more than half of the 33.000 register,

Hot Weather Damages
Nebraska Corn Crop
Washington, Sept. 6. Excessively
dry, hot weather in nearly all sec

terioration in the condition of many
crops, according to the semi-monthly
crop reports of the Department
of Agriculture. Preparation of the
ground for fall seeding, however,
has made considerable progress and
farm work has advanced satisfac
torily. Corn is maturing rapidly and be
ing husked in the southern states,
but this crop has deteriorated in the
central and eastern states, with the
setback severe in Missouri, Kansas
and Nebraska, due to heat and lack
of moisture. Thrashing" of small
grains has been virtually completed
in the south and middlcwest .but

Big Mileage Is Involved'
Chicago. Sept. d- (Hv A. l'.)-A
call for an immediate meeting of the
policy entiimittee of 90 in Chicago,
probably next Monday, wa sent out
tonight liy Jolin Scott, secretary ot
the ktrikmg railway tliopcraftn
The telegraphic aitpcat wa in
code and wa addreed lo the reg
ional general chairman of the organ-
nation in nil put of the country.
It wa expected that it would be
several davs before the ycould arrive
in Imago, and ior that reason no
general ejioti were expected be
fore the firt of next week.
The meeting wa called, it wa in
timated, to consider plans for a et
tlemeiit of the strike on separate
roads representing about one-third
of the country's mileage. It fol
lowed reports of rotvlcrence be
tween B. M, Jewell, head of the
striken and rail executives in the
Shopmen Meet Executives
Chicago. Sept. 6. Seven represen
tatives of the striking federated
shopcrafts were declared by Joint
Scott, secretary of the railway em
ployes' department of the American
Federation of Labor to be in Balti
more today for a lonferende with
tailroad executives on a proposition
to end the strike.
Scott intimated that a proposal on
which it was hoped the strike could
be halted had been prepared, but he
would not outline tt. The confer
ence, he said, was o have been se
cret. Should the meeting produce a
favorable result, Scott said the policy
committee of 90 union representa
tives would be summoned to meet in
New York, Sept. 6. If any con
ference it being.. held in Baltimore
between striking shopmen and rail
way heads it involves only a few in
dividual roads and does not look
toward settlement of the strike on a
nation-wide basis, it was said today
at headquarters of the Association of
By George F. Authier.
(Wanlilnstdn CorrrMwndent, Tba Omaha
Washington, Sept, 6. Reports per
sist in Washington today that Bert
M. Jewell of the shopmen's union has
been in the east for the last few days
conferring with rail executives with
the view of a strike settlement and
that he would return to Chicago,
where he will call a meeting of the
executive and policy committee of the
union for the purpose of ending the
This corroborates the confident
statement made yestterday by Attor
ney General Daugherty that the strike
would be ended within a week, even
if Mr. Jewell has not adopted this
Strike Seems Lost.
It is apparent to the forces of or
ganized labor that the shopmen's
s.rike is lost. Only a combined ac
tion on the part of labor could win it
now, iu view of the fact that the
brotherhoods have refused to join,
the coal strikes have been settled and
in view, also, of the utter impossi
bility of calling a general strike.
According to the information ob
tained here, the labor leaders pro
pose at their Washington meeting
of the executive council of the Ameri
can Federation, next Saturday, to
consider recommending a protest
sympathetic strike ot 24 hours
throughout the country. The federa
tion can recommend only and not
order. A general strike would re
quire .10 days to engineer, as all of
the organization memberships would
have to vote on it.
Any yielding on the part of the
shopmen would be explained on Ihe
liround that the striker yielded to
tote majeure on the part of the gov
ernment. It will then bend every
efiort to secure the election of a
democratic bouse in the approaching
rongrtitiunal elections, making it
ptam that the winning Humbert
ovved their election lo the aid ot ot
1i would b for the purpoit of
rebuking the Harding a limniittatiou

prevent the pssibthty m the tnacl
