Cabinet Still Functions.
Berlin, May 5. (By The Asso
ciated Press.) The cabinet of Chan
cellor Fchrcnbach, which last night
tendered its resignation to Presid 'lit
Ebert, was continuing to function
today in compliance with the presi
dent's request that it remain in office
until a new ministry was organized.
Informal conferences were in prog
ress today among the coalition party
leaders. Whether the present party bloc
will be able to send another cabinet
to the government's bench in the
Reichstag to sign the entente repara
tions protocol is the subject of lively
conjecture in parliamentary circle?.
It is known that Foreign Minister
Simons counted himself out 'of the
office when the delay to the reply to
his appeal to President Harding indi
cated a negative answer. That
Chancellor Fchrenbach and the rest
of the cabinet would automatically
disappear with Dr. Simons was a
foregone conclusion, as the ministry
had staked its exigence on the suc
cess cf its attempt to win President
Harding for mediator in the repara

beets to be raised this season al

a sugar refining company in Nc-.

Profits To Blame
For High Prices
Union Chief Savs
Official of Railway Men De
clares "Life is Con&lant
Struggle"' for Unskilled
Chicago, May 5. Pleading hie is
a "constant struggle, with the odds
always against them," for the un
skilled labor on the railroad.-,
George Easily, vice president of tlv:
Brotherhood of Railway and Steam
ship Clerks, Freight Handlers and
Station Employes, urged the railroad
labor board to refuse any wage re
duction at this time.
"Capital never goes cold and hun
gry," he sajd. "We are ncre plead
ing the cause of human oemgs who
need food, clothing and shelter every
day of the year. To them, the spectre
of tmemploymcnt is a ghost never

Mr. Eastty declared the public has
been deceived when it was told high
wages were the cause of high prices.
Profits, he said, were the real cause
of high prices.
Takes Shot at Schwab.
"A few days ago the chamber of
commerce wanted to know what was
the matter with business, so it sent
for Mr. Schwab," Mr. Eastty con
tinued. "The philanthropic gentle
man, who heads the Bethlehem Steel
company that marvellously good
j"3n who receives a new certificate
of virtue every 90 days and who ac
cepts medals and crosses from Euro
pean monarches and double crosses
American labor answered the call
and said high labor costs were to
blame and that wages in all lines
must come down.
"It never occurs to Mr. Schwab
to suggest profits come down. Mr.
Schwab did not tell the public that
after the wage increases had been
paid the price of finished steel was
only 41 per cent higher in 1917 than
it was three years before the war,
while the increase in net profits per
ton of finished product was 220 per
cent." " ,
Closing the unions' argument, E.
F. Grave of the maintenance of way
employes, declared that the mem
bers of his organization were the
lowest paid group of the railway
workers. He asked that the labor
board establish a minimum subsist
ence schedule, of $1,800 a year for a
family of five.
Urges "Standard of Living."
W. J. Lauck, economist for the
unions, occupied most of the day in
presenting exhibits, in all of which
the plea for an "American standard
of living" was stressed. He con
cluded with an analysis of figures
presented by the railroads, intended
to show reductions in the cost of
living and the wages of outside labor.
In his analysis, he pointed out
what he called "defects" in the car
riers' exhibits, pointing to the fact'
fhat they did not take into consider
ation the number of hours worked
peri day and declaring that only
basic industries should be used in
: His conclusions, he said, were that
the railroads testimony did not af
ford "a sufficient or fair basis, for
compamg rates paid in outside basic
industries" and that they should be
"rejected almost in entirety as evi
dence." 2,000 Indian Reservation
