Concessions and Employers .
Suggest Only Arbitration.
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
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.

Syrians Here Raise Large
Sums With Which to
i V Purchase Supplies.
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,"
"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.' "

Senate Committee Substitutes
Ten Per Cent Tax on Net
Profits for House Section.
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.
