- Scrambles for Safety.
"I was in the coach, the fourth
car," he related. "I understand the
car had been condemned at Chad

in an instant. There was a heavy
grating sound the coach sagged and j
crashed through the broken bridge.
The lights went out. Water poured
through the broken windows. There
was a mad scramble of passengers
for safety. Really, the women were
1 the bravest. The screams of the men
could be heard above the women's
faint cries for help.
"I was dashed forward over sev
eral scats and found myself near an
Vaged woman entangled beneath
Abroken seats. Water was pouring
Yover her."

Here Warnecke described the
aged woman's rescue how he and
another passenger dragged her
through an aperture in the flooded

Labor Votes to
Support Fight
Of Meat Cutters
Further Wage Reductions in
Packing Industry Will Be
Opposed by All Organ
ized Crafts. -
Denver, Colo., June 17. The
American Federation of Labor, in
convention today, unanimously
pledged its support to the packing
house workers of the country in
their fight against further wage re
ductions. The "big five" packers were con
demned for attempting to reduce al
most 1,000,000 workers and their de
pendents "to a degrading state of
poverty with all its attendant depriva
tions, and thus cause an 'unfor
tunate condition that because of its
far-reaching results will also impede
the progress of the nation."
. The executive council was instruct
ed to "leaVe nothing undone to aid
to the utmost the workers in the
packing industry."
.. After declaring the packers were
again 'taking advantage of the pres
ent period of business depression and
unemployment to reduce the wages
of workers," the resolution saidt:
Oppose Company Unions.
"The workers in the packing in
dustry are-threatened with- a -recurrence
of prewar conditions and
an efTort is made to lure them into
joining so-called company unions,
which in reality are for the company
only, established, managed and con
trolled by the packers, who hypo
critically are proclaiming that they
are bringing democracy to the work
ers, a democracy with a string tied
to it."
Copies of the resolutioin were or
dered submitted to President Hard
ing, Secretary of Labor JJavis, sec
cretary of Commerce Hoover, Sec
retary of Agriculture Wallace, Sen
ator Kenyon and other legislative
representatives interested in the
packing industry and the packers.
In makfng an appeal for organized
labor to keep up its fight to free
Thomas Mooncy and Warren K.
Billings, convicted in connection with
the San Francisco preparedness day
bomb plot, John Mooney told the t
convention that these men were kept
in prison by a "criminal conspiracy
on the part of the state of California."
Attack Califon "s.
The speaker, who is a u Mother of
Thomas Mooney, said that the
chamber of commerce of San Fran
cisco had engineered this, conspir
acy." He also mentioned two United
States senators, one of whom he
accused of having contributed $1,000
"in blood money to aid the conspir
acy." The other, he said, got $10,000
for coercing a witness in the Mooney
case. ...
Mr. Mooney said that when his
brother comes out of jail he will
again take his place in the ranks of
organized labor as "he believes in
only one organized labor movement
in the United States that is the
American Federation of Labor."
He declared that Billings is "under
going cruel and inhuman torture" in
Folsom ptison in California, and "is
not allowed to see a visitor or
friend." - -
"Tom wants the labor movement
to carry on the agitation," said the
speaker in concluding his appeal, "so
that we will eventually smoke out
the crooked officials of California."
Interest in President.

president of the United Mine Work

Lincoln, June 17. (Special.) The
North Platte river is swollen again
and ; water is pouring over the
Whetan dam near 'the Nebraska

There are 20 state aid bridges in this
Major damage was done to the
bridge at Minatare, where two of the
12 piers were washed out.
The old wooden bridges, however,
failed to withstand the flood and a

that requests for state aid bridges
will be numerous at the state depart
ment -i i the near future.

Washington, June 17. President
Harding and his cabinet decided to

The first step or. the part of the
administration will b: to ask con
grcss for .specific authority to carry
out this plar when it is worked out
in detail by the treasury.
This is one phase of a "ast and
complicated project for the financing

only the $20,000,000,000 loans of the
allied and associated nations to each

The proposals of the French and
British governments for a mutual
cancellation of war debts among the
allies have been rejected by the
United States and are considered
definitely shelved.
Allies May Follow.
If the Harding plan for the re
funding of foreign loans and their
absorption by the people works suc
cessfully, it is believed that a similar
course will be adopted by the allies
in dealing with their debts to each
The Amercan government's loans
to the rllies:
To Great Britain. $4,210,000,000.
To France, $2,750,000,000.
To Italy. $1,625,000,000.
To Relgium, $400,000,000.
To Russia, $190,000,000.
To Jugo Slavia, $100,000,000.
To other allies, $175,000,000.
Total, $9,450,000,000.
Nearly $1,000,000,000 more is now
due from the allies in the interest on
these loans which has riot been paid
tor two years and will not be paid
for another year at least.
Will Increase Interest
Under the Harding refunding plan
these loans to the allJfcs, which are
now in the form of 5 per cent ac
knowledgements of indebtedness,
would be refunded into bonds matur
ing 30 or 40 years hence at a higher,
rate of interest. . The increase in the
interest -rate aboveS per cent would
be sufficient to yield the additional
amount due to the United States in
defaulted interest.
These allied government bonds
then would be placed on the market
by the United States government
from time to time and sold to inves
tors. The proceeds from the sale
of bonds to individual ' investors
would be employed by the govern
ment to retire Liberty bonds.
This proposed treatment of the
defaulted interest differs from the
Houston plan, under which the
amount in arrears would be made
payable in 12 equal annual install
ments. .The Harding plan for treat
ment of the defaulted interest is
likely to meet opposition in con
gress, particularly on the part of
those who contemplate employing
the back interest, when paid, to
finance the soldiers' bonus.
Guarantee Undecided.
Whether the allied bonds, when
sold to the people, should be guar
anteed by the United States is an
other question that will come up in
congress when the authorization bill
is considered. One suggestion hith

"Bear' Telegram
Is Explained in
Stillman Suit
Counsel for "Fifi" Says Mes
sage Was Prearranged for
Information of Her
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
Poughkeepsie, N. Y., June 17.
"Little black bear has arrived."
This was the text of a telegram
sent by Mrs. James A. Stillman
from the Woman's hospital, New
York City, to Fred Beauvais, the
half-breed guide in Canada, a few
hours after she had given birth to
Guy Stillman, the boy whose parent
age is denied by James A. Stillman,
the banker.
Mrs. Mary Olive Gilligan, . a
trained nurse who attended Mrs.
Stillman at the hospital, sent the
telegram, which was dictated by
Mrs. Stillman, she testified today in
the hearing before Referee Daniel J.
Gleason in the Stillman divorce suit.
Apparently counsel for Mrs. Still
man were prepared for the testi
mony of Mrs. Gilligan. After the
morning session of the hearing they
admitted the telegram had been sent
and offered an explanation.
Explanation Is Given.
The explanation is that in the
summer of 1918, while Mrs. Still
man was in Canada, the prospective
birth of a child was discussed be
tween her and her children, Anna
and Buddy Stillman, and Beauvais.
It was agreed by Mrs. Stillman and
the children, counsel contends, that
if the child should be a boy,
Beauais would be advised by wire
that a little black bear had arrived,
and if it should be a girl, the code
called for announcement of the ar
rival of a little white bear.
Mrs. Gilligan was "employed in
November, 1918, to act as day nurse
to Mrs. Stillman by Dr. Warren
Hildreth, who attended the banker's
wife in her confinement. The child
was born on November 7, 1918.
"Did Mr. Stillman call on his wife
at the hospital?" the witness was
"Not between the tme of her ar
rival and the birth of the child," Mrs.
Gilligan replied. "He came for the
first time on November 8. He saw
his wife, but did not ask to see the
baby. He came again on the 9th,
10th and 11th.
Sent Her Flowers.
Mrs. Gilligan testified that Ir.
Stillman sent his wife flowers every
day while she was in the hospital.
When Mrs. Stillman left the hospital
with her baby she went to 270
Park avenue, then the Stillman town
house. Mrs. Gilligan went with her
as nurse and remained until the mid
dle of January.
The witness testified that Mr. Still
man lived at home and saw his wife
and the baby frequently. His con
duct at home was described by the
witness as "normal."
The unfavorable aspect of Mrs.
Gilligan's testimony particularly
"the little black bear" message
was partly offset in the afternoon
by cross-examination of Dr. Rus
sell, Buffalo osteopath. Attorneys
for Mrs. Stillman and Guy succeed
ed in wringing from Dr. Russel ad
missions that his memorandum book
contained entries showing that Mr.
Stillman was at "Mondanne," his
Pleasantville (N. Y.) estate on Jan
uary 6 and 7 a little, more than 9
months betore Guy was born.

Packer Bill
Is Passed
By Senate
House Draft With Slight
Amendments Approved by
Vote of 45 to 21 Insert
Publicity Section.
Norris Fights Measure
Chli-aco Trlbunc-Omaha, n I.Mned Wire.
Washington, June 17. After radi
cal members failed in further efforts
to substitute a more drastic mea
sure, the senate today passed the
meat packers' control bill substantial
ly as it came over from the house.
Some amendments were added, how
ever, including the adoption of the
publicity section of the senate com
mittee bill.
The final vote on the passage of
the bill was 45 to 21. Previously the
senate rejected the substitute pro-
Bised by Senator Sterling tf South
akota by a vote of 31 to 33.
The senate also, by a vote of 31 to
34. again rejected the senate com
mittee bill, which met defeat yester
day. Charges that attorneys for the
packers had a hanfl in drafting the
house bill were repeated during the
bitter debate which preceded the final
action. Senators LaFollette of Wis
consin, Norris of Nebraska and Ken
yon of Iowa fiercely assailed the
packers. Senator Smoot of Utah
came to the defense of the packers
and read a letter from one of the at
torneys for Wilson & Co. ex
plaining the part played by him in
conferences relative to the framing of
the house bill.
Authority Vested in Secretary.
The same forces which supported
the senate committee bill lined up for
the Sterling substitute. The chief
difference in the Sterling bill, from
the senate committee bill, was that
control over the packers was placed
in the hands of the federal trade
commission instead of a live stock
commissioner under the Department
of Agriculture. The bill as shaped ,
vests authority directly in the secre
tary of agriculture over both packers
and stockyards.
It is not expected that the differ
ences between the house and senate
bills will prevent a speedy agreement
and that the bifl will reach the pres
ident wthin a short time. It is the
expectation that President Harding
will sign it, although it is regarded
bv many members of congress as
contrary to his slogan of "less gov
ernment in busmeti.
Non-Edible Products Exempt.
One amendment adopted by the
senate to the house bill over the pro
tests of the radical group exempted
the manufacture of by-products.
which are not edible, from govern
mental supervision. This amend
ment was adopted by a vote of 33 to
30. Another amendment adopted
struck out horses, mules and goats
from the section defining live stock.
The bill as passed gives the secre
tary of agriculture jurisdiction oyer
packers, stockyards, commission
men, traders, buyers and sellers in
the yards. The secretary of agricul
ture is given the power to prevent
them from engaging in unfair, un
justly discriminatory or deceptive
practices. He is given the power to
regulate and prescribe the practices
in the stock yards and to prescribe
all rates, fees and charges for ser
