BROTHERHOODS TO -.
JOIN JEDER ATIOK
Oo-0peration in Eight-Hour
Fight Will Be Unofficial Un
til After Conventions.
GOMPERS AND LEE SPEAK
Baltimore, Md., Nov. 21 Affiliation
of the members of the American Fed
eration of Labor and the four big rail
road brotherhoods for effecting the
general betterment of labor, was urged
today before the federation conven
tion here by the brotherhoo'd heads
and President Samuel A. Gompers.
Delegates, who crowded the hall,
cheered all of the speakers enthusias
tically. "We must hang together or we will
hang separately," W. G. Lee, spokes
men for the brotherhoods and head of
the railway trainmen, declared.
"It is a great comfort to know,"
President Gompers said, "that the time
is not far distant when the greau
brotherhoods will be a part of the
American Federation of Labor."
Lee explained that the laws of the
brotherhoods now prevent an official
affiliation with the federation until
after their convention Is held, but he
insisted that between now and that
time the organizations could co-operate
with the same purpose as if they
were affiliated. He also made it plain
that the brotherhoods were not bring
ing their eight-hour day "troubles" to
the federation for support.
"I am about anarchist enough," he
said, "to say that we are going to
work for the eight-hour day for all
classes, If we can't get it peaceably,
we will fight for it."
Lee said that some sort of affiliation
should be effected to fight any pro
posed arbitration legislation which
might be unfair to labor. President
Wilson plans such legislation, Lee
said, and it should be carefully
watched. He declared that congress
had no right to pass any law compet
ing a man to work, provided he was
not in prison, if he did not want to,
and he did not think it would do so.
Prolonged cheering followed praise
of President Wilson by Lee.
"It took more courage for him to
write across the front pages of the
newspapers, of this country that he
was for an eight-hour day than it
would have taken for him to have
written that this country was at war
with Mexico," he said.
"Our principal object now is to help
the president and the then in both
branches of congress to make good
their promises to us. I believe they
will do it.
"It is absolutely necessary for us
who are organized to get together
and I say that we shall go the limit
to obtain better conditions, particular
ly for the men on the railroads that
the companyiwill-not permit to or
ganize. We will not strike or go out
to help them, but we will use our best
efforts to obtain hetter conditions for

W. S. Carter, president ' of the
Brotherhood of Railway Firemen and
Enginemen, declared ina speech that
the danger that confronts all work
ing people today is "the coercion or
subordination of the public press by
the master class."
"The coming of penny papers," he
added, "has done more than anything
else to place the press under the dom
ination of advertisers. Unfortunately
labor has but little to do with adver
tising practically all the advertise
ments come from the master class."

Court Will Give Opinion Today,
So Matter Can Go to the
BROUGHT TO QUICK ISSUE
Kansas City, Nov. 21. Legal skir
mishing in the fight of the railroads
of the United' States against the Ad
amson eight-hour law was brought
to a sudden issue today by a motion
filed by the government in the
United Stares district court here,
which, it is expected, will result in a
decision on the constitutionality of
the law by the supreme court of the
United States before January 1, when
the law is to go into effect.
"Prolonged litigation should, if
possible, be avoided, otherwise in
jury may result to the public and the
roads and their employees," the gov
ernment says in its motion as a rea
son for its action.
The Two Requests.
The government's motion, which
was directed against Alexander New
and Henry C. Ferris, receivers for
the Missouri, Oklahoma and Gulf
railroad, embodied two distinct re
quests of the court as follows:
"1. The government asks an im
mediate decision on the injunction
petition filed by the receivers of the
Missouri, Oklahoma and Gulf, in
which the Adamson law was attacked
as unconstitutional, and an order re
quested forbidding its enforcement.
The government contends that the in
junction petition should be dismissed
because the law is constitutional,
therefore leaving the railroad no basis
in equity for its action.
"2 Should the law be held un
constitutional, the government asks
that the court direct the receivers
for the railroad to join the govern
ment in getting the case advanced
immediately to the supreme court of
the United States for final decision."
Will Decide Today.
Judge William C. Hook, sitting in
the case, announced that he will ren
der a decision tomorrow. Judge Hook
stated from the bench that if the
motion were granted he would re
quest the receive- of- thf Missouri,
Oklahoma and Gulf to invite the le
gal representative of all the rail
roads in the United States to take
part in the proceedings.
Should the law be held constitu
tional by Judge Hook it is expected
that the railroads will appeal from
the decision in favor of the govern
ment in an effort to stop the laws de
cree before January 1. In an case,
the government plans to have the
question of constitutionality of the
law before the supreme court when
that tribunal reconvenes December
4, and to urge that it be advanced
for immediate hearing.
- Can Be Ordered.
Action in the case was taken on
the injunction petition of the Mis
souri, Oklahoma and Gulf rather than
on similar petitions of other roads
throughout the United States, be
cause the Missouri, Oklahoma and
Gulf is under the direction of the
federal court. - That enabled the gov
ernment to ask the co-operation of
the railroad in obtaining a final deci
sion of the case before January 1.
This assistance can be ordefed by the
court, and, as indicated by Judge
Hook, will be so ordered if he de
cides to grant the motion. Had the
government proceeded against a rail
road not m receivership it was point
ed our oy a memoer ot ine govern

University of Nebraska Man
Tells ' How Farmers Made

TALKS BEFORE GRAIN MEN
How the College of Agriculture, of
the University of Nebraska co-operated
with the office of markets of the
Department of Agriculture, Washing
ton, D. C, and made a quarter of a
million dollars on potatoes for the
farmers of three counties in north

afternoon by Professor H. C. Filley
before the convention of the Nebras

Live Stock association In session at
the Hotel Rome.
Professor Filley said the two de
partments were ready to do similar
jvorky for. the grain-mew.. -
. It was at the request of the three
county agents of these ' northern
counties that this system was worked
out in regard to potatoes a short
time ago. 'Professor Filley said po
tatoes there had been selling for 65
cents a bushel until this co-operative
marketing was organized.
"The price of potatoes to the farm

cents in three weeks, and all this
time the wholesale price in Omaha

to get more for their produce, with

marketing of about 1,000,000 bushels
Professor Filley also made a plea
for a better system of bookkeeping
for the farmers. He said the federal
office of markets, has worked out an
effective system of cost-finding and
cost-accounting for farmers, and that
this is being extensively used in Kan
sas and Minnesota. Next spring, he
said, the University of Nebraska will
institute a course in this cost ac
counting system, so that tflbse who

German submarine Deutschland,
which started again from New Lon

noon, passed here tonight moving
eastward through Block Island
Sound. It was without convoy ten
miles off shore. As the Deutschland
passed this point at 4:18 p. m., it was
though that it would probably not be
sighted again before daybreak. By
that time, it was estimated, it would
be in the vicinity of Nantucket South
Shoals lightship. Coast guard sta
tions along the coast were under or

said, to reveal no observations of the
submarine which they might make.

troops was announced by the war of

Craiova apparently clinches the Aus-tro-German
hold upon a large section
of western Wallachia and probably
means the cutting off of important
Roumanian forces from their line of
retreat by railroad. ,
Craiova lies on the main line be
tween Orsova and Bucharest, about,
120 miles west of the capital. The
Roumanian army retreating in the
Jiui valley was falling back toward
this town and was reported in the
Petrograd official statement of Tues
day to have reached the region of
Filliash, about forty miles northwest
of Craiova. - -.-.
If General von Falkenhayn's troops
have beaten it to Craiova, as seems
probable, its railway line of retreat
thus is severed. Likewise it would
appear that the Roumanian force
which has been operating in the Or
sova region was seriously imperiled, if
not cut off by this new Teutonic suc
cess. Craiova before the war had a pop
ulation of nearly 50,000 and was an
active center of Roumanian trade.

Regarding the increase in the num

"Itis a question of life or death.

In paying a tribute to Mr. Balfour's
personality the paper adds: "But he
is nearly 70 and it is time for us to
tell him plainly that the country is
not sure that he is more vigorous
today than when he retired from the
leadership of the Unionist party in
1911 owing to indifferent health.
Charm and amiability do not, unfortu
