evacuation of Asia Minor by the
Greeks as a result of the successful
offensive against their army by the

Actual orders for the evacuation

Optimistic Over Prospects
for l"' Settlement of
.1 'Key Roads
.s gton, Sept. 8. (By A
voN ' -i the bam of personal reports
.crtain admiiiiktration leader, a
.ore optimistic view of the railroad
strike nidation wa apparent ill gov.
eminent circle than in the past week,
Several omcials who nave been in
clone personal touch with strike de
velopment declared that settlement
of the labor controverty on a number
of road wa a "probable" result of
the teries of conferences which they
understood to be in 'progress in Chi
cago, T he extent to which the negotia
tions might go toward affecting a na
tional settlement was not forecast in
these circles, but the hope was ex
pressed that a partial peace with
"key" road might serve as wa the
case in the bituminous coal settlement
a a starting point for a general set-
j Willard Given Credit.
I The Chicago meeting were said to
have been largely a a result of efforts
on the part of Daniel Willard of the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad, who was
understood to have associated with
him representatives of about 85,000
miles of operated track.
Attorney General Daugherty said
the government vyas not a party to
any negotiations between the rail
road and their employes hut declared
that such negotiations would not be
interfered with by the temporary re
straining order issued at Chicago.
"The government is not a party to
any negotiations between the railroads
and the employes, if any are in prog-
tress, Mr. uaugncrty said, l ne sug
gestion that such negotiations would
be interfered with by the restraining
order granted by Judge Wilkerton is,
in my judgment, wholly unjustified.
The only concern of the government
is industrial peace and the restoration
of transportation. Any conference
between the railroad executives and
their former employes to adjust their
grievances is in the interest of in
dustrial peace and would not find any
obstacle on the part of the govern
ment," No Action Taken.
There was no development in con
nection with the legal backfire started
by the International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers one group of the
striking crafts through a petition for
a restraining order to prevent enforce
ment of the govenment's tempoary
injunction. Conferences were held be
tween counsel for the union apd Unit
ed States Attorney Gorden, with a
view to postpone the hearing on the
petition set for Saturday, but no de-
ctsion was reached.
Efforts to obtain an official state
ment at the White House as to the
president's views on the situation re
sulted in an authorized statement that
they could not, with propriety, be dis
closed at, this time. It wdas pointed
out that the situation rests in the
hands of a number of lersons, gov
ernment officials as well as railroad ex-.
ectitives and labor leaders, and it was
indicated that any discussion by ad
ministration officials might embarrass
those who are seeking a settlement.
While the rail situation was under
stood not to have been included in the
subjects taken up for extended discus
sion at today's cabinet meeting, it was
understood that some retcrence was
made to the status of the govern
ment's injunction in view of oflicial
statements that a modification of the
temporary order would not be op
posed when the case would be called
m Chicago Monday.

Fate Without Tremor of
Fear Joke on Eve
Bids Mother Good-Bye
Fort Madison, la.. Sept, ft. tBy
A. P.) Without a tremor of fear Ira
Pavry, Sioux City gunman, paid with
his life for the murder ot Claude
Leturr at noon today.
Sheriff Synliorst of Orange Cily
pulled the trap at exactly noon,
I'avey, hit arms strapped to hi
side, his feet bound and with black
hood over hit face shot through the
pare in a drop of eight fret and
spun at the end of the rope. ,
"So Long, Everybody."
Pavey mounted the step to the
gallows with a smile on hi lip.
"So long, everybody," ha said, as
they fixed the mailt over his face.
"Warden, tell my mother goodby."
Pavey was without fear a the end
drew near. He was led from the
barred room where he had spent his
last hours, with his mother, Emma
I'avey of Kansas City, and his two
sitters, at 10 minute to 12. He re
fused to be accompanied by a priest.
He walked to the corner ol the
prison yard, where the gallows stood,
smoking a cigaret. At the foot of the
gallows he laughed and joked with
Warden Hollowed and the guards.
Mother Wins Race.
Travel worn from a three days'
automobile trip from Kansas City,
Mrs. Emma Pavey and her two
daughters. Fern and Bessie, the
mother and sisters of Ira i'avey,
arrived at the penitentiary early to
day, winning by a bare three hours
their race with death.
The voice broken with tears. Mrs.
Pavey asked Warden T, P, Hollo-
well to take her to her son. The
woman, exhausted from two sleep
less nightt on the road and the
knowledge of her son's fate, was
near the breaking point.
Jhe three women were taken to
the death cell where they were talk
ing to the condemned man as the
death hour drew near.
Pavey spent his last night in un
broken sleep. At 4 this morning he
arose, asked his guards to turn on
the lights and began writing letters
At 6:30 he ate a hearty breakfast.
According to Sheriff Hugo Syn-
borst of Sioux county, the con
demned man's nerve, instead of
weakening as the end drew near,
Last night he was served chicken
and ice cream for supper. Eugene
Weeks, Orrie Cross, William Oland
er and Earl Throst, the other occu
pants of the death cell, also received
part of the special menu.
1 he treat s on mc, boys, Pavey
called to Weeks.
"I'd just as soon they'd hang some
one here every week if they would
'feed us like this."
Curious Turned Back.
At dawn today for the first time
in 12 years a wooden gallows stood
in the prison yard of the peniten
tiary here, erected last night to hang
Pavey, sentenced to death for the
murder of Claude Letner of Sioux
county. The trap was sprung by
Sheriff Synhorst of Orange City,
Sioux county, the county in which
the crime was committed ' and in
Pavey was tried and convicted.
Curious knots of people gathered
about the prison walls this morn
ing, drawn by morbid curiosity. Al
though several announcements have
been made that the hanging will be
private and no persons admitted ex
cept the official witnesses, prisou offi
cials, county officers from the north
Iowa county, the prison doctors and
the priest, scores applied at the
gates to see the hanging and were
Dispersed by Guards
A group of more than a dozen of
the curious who bad gathered on a
high hill directly behind the prison
walls in the expectation of viewing
the grim scene were dispersed by

ready with ample funds from the
