PHILADELPHIA. June 2S. "If an In
sane thins not to recognize organizations
of labor," said John Wanamaker today,
In giving further testimony before the
Untied .States commission on Industrial
rotations. He made this statement In
reply to a question whether employers
should recognize labor unions. On the
general question of unionism Mr. "ATana
maker said he believed labor had "suf
fered frightfully" In tho past became of
poor leaders, but added that he is le-.lng
a better class of leadership coming in.
Commissioner Welnstock of California,
who presided today, asked the witness It
he could supply the missing link thut
would bring capital and labor toge'.'i.-r.
Mr. Wanamaker said:
"I believe that labor and capital havo
the right to organize. On the one side,
capital, there Is responsibility, and on
the other, labor, there Is none. There
you stop. The missing links, t believe,
are prejudice and misunderstanding,
which must be overcome.
"One of the ways to wipe out this
prejudice and misunderstanding Is to un
hitch labor unions from political parties."
Rockefeller Made mistake.
Speaking of capital, Mr. Wanamaker
said John D. Rockefeller, Jr., "mado a
great mistake when he put President Wil
son in the position of sending troops into
"I might be mistaken In this," he said,
"but that la the way I feel about It."
Contact with the employes Is a remedy
for much misunderstanding, the witness
said. "There are labor unions' which have
no other purpose than to protect their
wages. Men who spend their time get
ting their salaries raised generally fall."
Commissioners Lennon of Illinois and
O'ConnelL of. Washington who. are th.a
representatives of workmen on the com
mission., piled Mr. Wanamaker with
many questions. Asked whether he was
nn advocate of the eight-hour day, he
replied: "Eight hours or less."
On the question of minimum wages for
women, the witness said that ns an ex
periment It should not be condemned.
Public Ownership Coining.
Discussing public ownership ns a means
to reduce Industrial strife. Mr. Wana
maker said he was an "absolute believer"
in government ownership of public utili
ties. "I believe the government Bhould
own the railroads," he said. "It would
prevent conditions that havo existed In
the I.ew Haven road and In the Rock
Island system. Government ownership
would bring one-cent postRgo because the
government owned the means carrying

During the discussion of public owner

Average of Human
Life is Increased
ATLANTIC CITY. N. J.. June 23.-.U
tho first general session of the sixty
fifth annual convention of the American
Medical association here today Dr Victor
C. Vaughn was installed as president of
the association, succeeding Dr. John A.
Wltherspoon of Nashville, Tenn.
Dr. Vaughn made "The Service of
Medicine to Civilization" the subject of
his Inaugural address
"In the last century tiie average of
human life has been Increased by fifteen
jears, and this increase could be dupli
cated In the next twenty years," he said,
"If the facts we now possess were ef
"Tho further developments of medicine,
both curative and preventive, depend on
scientific investigations. The public is
the beneficiary and should In every way
encourage medical research. Tho federal
Fovernmcnt and the states should sustain
and promote scientific research. That
government Is the best which secures for
Its citizens the greatest freedom from
disease, the highest degree of health and
the longest life, and that people which
moBt fully secures the enjoyment of these
blessings will dominate tho world.
"We boast of a great civilization, but
this Is Justified only within limits. The
historian of the future will havo no dlt
llculty In convincing his readers that
thosa who lived at the beginning of the
twentieth century were but slightly re
moved from barbarism, as he will tell
that the school, saloon and house of
prostitution flourished In close proximity;
that the capitalist worked his employes
under conditions which precluded sound
ness of body; that the labor union man
dynamited buildings: that while wc sent
missionaries to convert the Moslems and
the Duddhlst, ten thousand murders were
committed annually in our midst, and
that a large percentage of our mortality
was due to preventable disease."
Crisis Over Home
Rule Bill Enters
LONDON, Juno 23. The crista In con
nection with the granting of home rule
to Ireland, entered another stage today
when the Marquis of Crowe, liberal leader
in the House of Lords, introduced a bill
to amend tho Irish home rule bill.
The terms of the amending hill are
Identical with those offered on March, 8,
by Premier Asqulth and contemptuously
refused by Sir Edward Carson, the Irish
unionist leader, who described the pre.
mlor's proposal as a "hypocritical sham."
By the new bill the- parliamentary elec
tors of each county In Ulster are to he
allowed to decide by vote whether the
county shall be excluded from the Pro
visions of the home rule bill for a period
of six yearri' from the first meeting of
the new Irish parliament.
The situation has never been paralleled
In parliamentary procedure In the British
Isles. Never before has a bill been pre
sented to Parliament to amend a measure
not yet on tho statute books. This was,
however, the only means of overcoming
the deadlock, as the House of Ixirds re
fused to consider the main bill until the
full proposals of the government were

NEW YORK, June 23. Officers nnd
men of the battleship Utah, sunburnt

Republic with Surprise.
LEADS TO MUCH SPECULATION
EnToy'a Difficulty In Spenklnir

" from llrlnir Entirely
WASHINGTON, June 23.-Attempts by
German Interests to outbid the United
States for rights to construct an Inler
oceanlc canal across Nicaragua were re
vealed today to tho sonata foreign rela
tions committee by Nlcaraguau Minister
Cammoro. The minister said Germans
had urged that the J3.000.000 offered by
the United States for canal rights and
other concessions was not enough.
Sonor Camraoro's statement was re
ceived with surprise and led to much
speculation among members of tho com
mittee after he left the capltol. Some
members understood htm to mean that
Germany had officially approached the
Nlcaraguan government and the minister's
difficulty In speaking ngllsh prevented his
statement from being entirely clear.
Think nnnkera Iteaponallile.
Members of the committee who did not
believe that Germany had made any offi
cial suggestions to Nicaragua were In
clined to the opinion that representatives
of German bankers were responsible for
anything that had been done or even that
Nicaragua might not bo averse to play
ing the American game of bluff.
It was recalled tonight that no nation
could expect to liulld a canal across
Nicaragua to rival that at Panama with
out expending hundreds of millions of
dollars and the opinion was expressed that
Germany hardly would be likely to en
gage In such an enterprise. hTat private
bunking Institutions, no matter how
rich, should seriously contemplate such
an undertaking when there Is some que.
Hon as to whether the canal across Pan
ama ever will pay was regarded us ex
Senor Chamorro was not specific about
tho German offer but he'tfjed'to make
it plain that whoever made it took pains
to show Nicaragua that the United States
tt'us to get milch more than ii was en
titled to for $3,000,009. He appeared before
the committee particularly to speak nf
the political effect upon Nicaragua of
the provisions in the treaty by which
the United States would assume a. pro
tectorate over the country and guarantee
fair elections thero as in Cuba. His tes
timony, members said, was most Inter
esting. House Votes to Sell
