OPPOSES WILSON'S It. 11. PLAN
TO SAVE SMALL INVESTORS
Bankers Beg President Not to Grant
NEW YORK, Aug. 21. In n letter ad
dressed to President Wilson, signed by Lewis
B. Franklin, president, and John K. Blunt,
chairman, representing tho railrond bond
committee of the Investment Bankers' As
sociation of America, mndo public at 1
o'clock today, a strong objection Is made
to granting an increaso In pay of railway
employes without arbitration.
The letter declares that should an in
crease In wages bo granted tho cost would
comJ from the pockets of small Investors,
which would seriously endanger tho security
of millions of outstanding bonds.
The letter. In part, follows:
"In tho Interest of Investors holding bil
lions of railroad securities, most of them
t citizens of moderate means, we respectfully
protest to your Excellency against any
effort to Induce or compel railroad olUclals to
grant an Increase of wages approximating
$50,000,000 a year, unless the Justice of
such Increases be determined In advance
"Tho right to grant or refuse such aii
Increase In expenses should not be deter
mined by any form of compulsion such ns
"Sis now threatened. If this right can be
adjudicated by arbitration under the super
vision of tho Interstate Commerco Commis
sion, any Increase granted will furnish a
Just basis for an Increaso of rates that will
V be fair to all parties, Includ ng tho public.
"Capital for railroad development nnd
upkeep cannot be obtained if railroad earn
ings are to be dissipated at the Instance of
combinations of employes enforcing their
claims by compulsion and refusing to sub
mit to arbitration.
"Right, not might, must govern in labor
disputes If there is to bo any stability In
our social organization."

TRADE BOARD STARTS
'BREAD TRUST' PROBE;
BIG PACKERS BLAMED
Commission Considers Repre
sentative Rainey's Allegations
of Conspiracy to Raise Price
of Staff of Life
WASHINGTON. Aug. 24. Chairman Ed
ward II. Hurley and f his colleagues, of tho
Federal Trade Commission, today began
tho probe of accusations by Representatives
Ralncy, of Illinois, that tho western pack
ing Interests, by absorbing control of cer
tnln concerns In the so-called "bakery
trust," were tho powers behind the move
ment for Increasing the prlco of bread
throughout tho country. The commission
called In Assistant Attorney General Todd
for a lengthy conference as to possible pro
cedure by tho Department of Justice.
Tho commission debated the expediency
of recommending Immcdlnte enactment of
Representative Rainey's bill, removing tho
old war tax on mixed flour. The commis
sion has been flooded with appeals from
scores of western milling concorns for a
public hearing on tnls proposition beforo
decisive action Is taken. Several commis
sioners frankly asserted their belief that
the proposed law, which would give Federal
sanction to tho mixing of wheat and corn
flour with certain restrictions us to label
ing, would enable the small commercial
bakers to produce a better loaf at n much
lower cost than is now possible.

FOUR TURKISH DIVISIONS
ROUTED ON TIGRIS RIVER
Russians Capture Two Whole
Regiments of Ottoman Troops,
Together With Rich Booty
PCTROORAD, Aug. 24. Russian troopi
havo defeated four Turkish dhlslona (80,-
000 men) In a grent battlo near the ill.
lngo of Rachtn, near Mosul, capturing two
entire Turkish regiments, It was officially
announced today. Much cannon and other '
booty was taken.
The Russian victory near Mosul Is of
great Importance as far as tho situation
on tho Asia Minor, or, to speak more pre
cisely, on tho Mesopotamia field of battle
Is concerned. Mosul Is on tho right bank
of tho Tigris, on tho way to Bagdad, from,
which It Is about 220 miles distant.
Not only Is Mosul Importnnt from the
military point of view, for Its capture by
tho Russians would clear for them the way
to Bagdad from tho north, but It Is also
from the moral standpoint, ns the city la the
capital of the vlllayet of Mosul and, though
by no means holding the commercial Im
portance It had In former times, still had'1,;
a considerable caravan trade. It has a
population oi nearly uu.uuu. j -
