HAT ASK WILSON TO ACT itfew York, Aug. 11. After deliber ating the grater part of the night, Commissioners William A, Cham bers, Martin A, Knapp and G. W. W. Hanger of the United States Board of Mediation and Conciliation, were to day no nearer a 'solution of the "dead lock" in the dispute between the four railroad brotherhoods -of the country and their employers than they were yesterday. The efforts of the mediators to avert a nation wide strike were vir tually at a halt due to the fact it was reported that the railroads refused to grant any concession other than arbitration, while the men persist in their firm stand for an unequivocal granting of their demands for an eight-hour day and time and a half overtime. . ,.-.; May Ask Wilson to Act. - A formal request for a twenty-four-hour delay in. the negotiations was made by the federal board to the union men today when they assem bled to receive the mediators, and it was reported that the board, unless there was an unexpected change' in the situation in that time, was pre pared to suggest to President Wilson that he intervene. Mr. Hanger, who asked for the' de lay, took pains to point out, how ever, that no particular significance had been attached to the sudden change in their plans. i : 5 ; "It must be remembered, he said, "that the question at issue involves hundreds of railroads and thousands of men and the mediators cannot gr rive at a judicious conclusion as to the merits in the case until they have thoroughly assimilated the situation." Mr. Hanger added that the board expected to cotinue its deliberations today and might reach a decision- by evening as to the time of the next meeting with one or the other side m the dispute. i Men Becoming Restive. ' " "We do not intend," said W. S. Stone, chief of the Brotherhood, of Railroad Engineers, "to wait very long on the mediatois. The tem per of the men is such that they would not have waited a minute if we had not persuaded them to give the mediators a chance. Personally, I do not care to carry'the strike vote around in my pocket for any extend'd period. It is like a stick of dyna mite' . , ' . - , Since its organization in 1913, through-an act of congress and up to September ZU, rjli, the board has sat on forty-seven controversies be tween railroads and their employes. In every instance the board has suc ceeded in securing an Ultimate adjust ment of i the differences, thirtynine cases having been settled by media tion alone and eight by arbitration. Italian Troops Occupy the Entire Doberdo Plateau Rome, Aug. 11. (Via London.) The Italians have occupied the entire Doberdo plateau,' the. war office an nounced today. J. he Italians also have captured Rubbia and San Martino del Carso. They -have reached the line of the Vallone river, ire Austrian3 have retired to the east of. the town of Vallone. By their new victories the Italians appear to have taken an important step toward clearing the salient formed by the bend of the Isonzo, below Gorizia. The Doberdo Plat eau was the scene of heavy fighting early in the war. but the Austrians obstinately withstood efforts of the Italians to win this important posi tion, i This fighting took place on a front som. distance berow Gorizia, the capture tf which enabled the Ital ians to push forward in the direction of Triest in this region. San-Mar tino del Carso is six miles southwest of Gorizia. ;t is about twenty miles from i nest ( Russians Take Stanislau. Petrograd. Aug. 11. (Via London.)

CONTENTION OF THE TURKS Washington, Aug. 11. Turkey has refused to grant the request of the United States that u neutral com mittee be permitted to undertake re lief work in Syria, where thousands of native Christians are reported to be starving.' . Charge Miller of Constantinople, in a cablegram received at the State department today, said the Turkish government had imormed him relief operations, in Syria were considered unnecessary because crops there were better than anywhere in the empire. He added that although he was told thedecision was final, he had not dropped the subject, but would . continue to press for favor able action. ' , Miller, Will Try Again, t On Juiy 5 -the department in structed Charge Miller to call atten tion to the fact that there had been no action in this matter and to say to the Turkish foreign' office that continued failure to j:ed the request would put a severe strain on the re lations between the United States and Turkey. . .. . jtx..j - Turkish officials' -contended,' Mr. Miller said, that while food shortage existed to some extent in all bellig erent countries, there was no serious famine condition in Syria; that the outlook for fall crops was good and that locusts had damaged only fruits. Funds Already Raised. ' ' Syrians in the United States have raised considerable funds to purchase relief supplies for their countrymen, and have been waiting for months for permission to have them distributed. It was said at the State department today that Abram Elkus, the new am bassador to Turkey, who leaves for his post August 17, probably would take up the Syrian question personal ly upon his arrival at Constantinople. Defends His Efforts to Eeward Deserving Demos Kansas City,, Mo, Aug. 11-Wil-liam J. Bryan, former secretary of state, replied here today to criticism of his attitude toward civil service, made by Charles E. Hughes, the re publican presidential nominee, In a statement in which he said he had "enforced the civil service law to the letter " Mr. Bryan challenged the republican nominee to state whether he had given appointments to "de serving republicans" while governor of New Vork. - The statement was made in answer to recent speeches of Mt. Hughes, which quoted a letter Mr. Bryan had written to Receiver of Customs Vick in Santo Domingo, inquiring as to what positions could be obtained te "reward deserving democrats." " Mr. Bryan admitted the letter as it had been quoted. - "I am not ashamed of it." the state ment read. "The letter was written to an appointive officer, whose office was not under the civil service and the inquiry was made in regard to offi ces which were not under civil service. There was nothing in the letter to indicate a desire or intention to se lect men who were incompetent On the contrary,' inquiry is made as to 'what is requisite. " The statement, after declaring Mr. Hughes to have "shown himself quite prompt in discharging obligations," declares: "As an official, I enforced the civil service law to the letter-and, upon my resignation, received from the employes in the state-- department, more than 90 per cent of whom were under-the civil service, a watch-which I prize as a priceless treasure. But, while I observed the civil service law wherever it was in force, I felt my self free to aid in rewarding de serving democrats wherever it cou'd be done without detriment to the service. My regret is that I was able to reward so few of the multitude who are deserving, measured by their po litical sesvice, by their capability and by their fitness for the work to be done. "The 'deserving democrat' is not to be despised he is as much en titled to recognition as a 'deserving republican.' " David Kahn, Banker of New - York and Paris ,ls Dead New York, Aug. 11. David Kahn, head of the International banking house of Lazard Freres, whose .r',h. in Paris was reported in a cable dis patch today, was an American citizen. He was Lorn in France about seventy years ago, came to this country as a young, man and was naturalized. He went first to New Orleans, later to San Francisco, where, in 1884, he es tablished the London,: fans and American bank, which is now th An glo and London and- Paris National bank. Mr. Kahn severed his connection with that institution in the early '90' and, returning to Pans, joined the banking hrm of Lazard Freres, of which It: later became the senior member. mm asiiss ii rfV rgrv... tj-fJ VOTE FOR TAX OH MUNITIONS OF WAR . i . . - s ! v . ; w ..... , . : Senate Committee Substitutes Ten Per Cent Tax on Net Profits for House Section. UP TO CAUCUS TONIOjT BULLETIN. Washington, Aug. 11. Threatened revolt in the democratic senate cau cus over reduction of the. income tax exemption was averted late today when democrats of.ihe finance com mittee reconsidered their previous action lowering the exemption from $4,000 and $3,000 for married and sin gle persons to $3,000 and $2,000, re spectively. ' ... -y '- , ! Washington, Aug. 11. A 10 per cent net profit tax on manufactures of munitions of war was agreed upon today by democrats of the senate finance committee as a substitute for the munitions taxes proposed in the house revenue bill. The committee completed its con sideration of the house bill, for sub mission to thexaucus tonight, the net revenue to be derived from the meas ure being estimated at $198,000,000, or $11,000,000 less than the house bill. Specific duties on munitions proposed in the house would have yielded $72, 000,000j Under the senate amend ment the revenue to be derived from munitions will be only $45,000,000. The proposal to levy a net profit tax on excess profits of manufactur ers of all goods sold to foreign gov ernments, as proposed last night, was rejected by the committee after a prolonged fight. . The amendment strikes out all the munitions taxes contained in the house bill, including the much pro tested copper tax, and provides that every corporation manufacturing gun powder or other explosives,' and all munitions of war and articles going to make up munitions, including mo tor boats and submersibles.'shal) pay for each taxable year a tax of 10 per cent upon net profits accrued from the sale of such goods manufactured in the ' United States. The proposed tax would become in operative a year after the close of the European war and would be op erative from January 1, 1916. Anglo-French Forces Take Bulgarian Post Paris, Aug. 11.
