body formed tor the purpose.
Secretary Tumulty issued the fol
I he president spent an hour and
half this morning with the repre
sentatives of the .railway managers.
After the conference he said that it
was impossible as vet to report on the
results; all that he could say was
that a very candid and honest discus
sion was in progress about practica-

Plan May Not Be Feasible.
Whether this plan can be worked
out will not be known until President
Wilson presents it to the brotherhod
leaders. The railroads are under
stood to be ready to concede the prin
ciple of the eight-hour day, providing
concessions be made by the employes
so too heavy a burden will not be
placed upon the railroads.
The men take the stand that they
principally want the eight-hour day
on conditions that it shall be enforced
whenever possible. The railroads are
said to believe it impossible to ac
cept the eight-hour day unless a work
able system of application can be
built up. Members of the managers'
committee said they had no plans for
the future and did not know whether
they would be called to the White
The managers took the position
that the eight-hour day and the col
lateral issues are inseparable and that
it would not be practicable to accept
the eight-hour day and submit the
other question to arbitrati ji.
Representatives of the brother
hoods heard of the proposal with in
terest but insisted, however, that the
proposition was not a new one.
None ot tne orotnernooo oinciais
would commit himielf on what the at
titude of the employes would be to
ward such a proposal, but they did
not appear optimistic over the likeli
hood of it proving acceptable.
It was pointed out by the, em
ployes' representatives, however, that
if such a proposition were tendered
in concrete form to them they could
onlv refer it to the general board.

After an hour and a half of con
ference with the president the mana-
Sers' committee left the White House
y a side door, hoping to evade ques
tioners. ; Elisha Lee, the chairman,
"We are entirely in the president s
hands and have agreed with him that
he will make any statement"
While the managers were at the
White House, the brotherhood lead
ers conferred among themselves and
awaited the call for their conference.
The general opinion among them was
that the president was putting the
burden of averting a strike up to
the railroads and that the prospects
for a settlement were good. Having
agreed practically to the principle
of arbitration, the brotherhood lead
ers inclined to the view that the con
troversy could be settled by the rail
road granting tha basic eight-hour
day abd arbitrating tha demands for
time and a half for over time; or
bjr eliminating tha double compensa
tion features and having the railroads
make a flat agreement to put in the
Tha attitude of the managers as

make no appeal whatever, but it is
extremely difficult to find anyone ut
terly lacking in musical instinct.
"Therefore I claim that the great
art of music is the one solid ground
for a true internationalism, tne one
realm in which matters of politics, of
commercialism or of petty hostility
can be transcended. For if we do not
find concord and harmony in music,
where on earth is it to be sought?

Rockefeller Industrial Plan

to the convention of the federation
The so-called "Rockefeller Indus
trial plan," adopted by the Colorado
Fuel and Iron company, is declared
to be an "unqualified failure." The
Industrial commission and workmen's
compensation laws of - Colorado are
severely criticised in some respects
and praised in others. Conditions in
the coal mining fields are reviewed
and a glowing report is given of the
growth of unionism in the state and
legislation deemed necessary is out
Generally, the report savs. better
feeling appears to prevail between
employer and employe in the state
and in the coal fields improvements
noted are credited to the results of
the strike of 1913-1914.

as a cure-all for labor's ills; but it
has in reality failed to cure anything.
