sentative at Budapest, according to
dispatches received here.
The test of the statement, accord
ing to report, follows:
"There are 250,000 workmen in
Budapest who are only 'awaiting
for the Rumanians to leave Hun
gary to immediately take the situa
tion into their own hands, which
means the return of Bolshevism.
The Hungarian government cannot
depend upon the Entente powers
for assistance, for those powers
have withdrawn all their troops
from Russia, and America is unwill
ing to send a single soldier. We do
not trust the Entente, which wants
only to humiliate us. We are will
ing to withdraw our troops, if nec
essary, starting to-morrow morn
ing, but we will carry off every
thing and strip the country just as
Field Marshal Machenzen did Ru
mania. #
"The only grudge the Entente has
against us is that we refuse to have
English and American capital domi
nate Rumania. Hungary must fol
low Rumania's policy in not accept
ing English and American capital.
Whatever would remain after the
Rumanians retreat would be taken
by the Entente anyway. The En
tente idea is to have Rumania and
Hungary fight and destroy each
other, the Entente thereby getting
all. There is only one policy for
Hungary to pursue, that is a junc
tion between Hungary and Ruma
nia, ruled by the Rumanian king.
We do not care what the Entente or
Premier Clemenceau of France
wants to do or is doing. We will
follow our own policy.

duke Joseph, head of the govern

answer is not received by that time,,
we shall inform Bucharest, which

Supreme Council Does
Not Have Rumanian Reply
By Associated Press.
Paris, Wednesday, Aug. 13.—The
Supreme Council considered the
Hungarian question this afternoon
but as replies have not yet been
received from Rumania, the coun
cil had no official advices from that
country concerning its attitude.
Dispatches from the Interallied
Military Commission containing in
quiries as to that body's powers
were considered and the council
sent additional instructions to Buda
pest. It is understood that the mis
sion was advised that orders are
not to be given to the commanders
of the Rumanian army, but that
members of the mission should hold
themselves in readiness to confer
with Rumanian officials preparatory
to an adjustment of the strained

rental some of the carriers would
have turned in a surplus for di
vision between employes and tl.e
Mr. Walter said the financial
structure of credits depended upon
the legislation enacted by this Con
gress to deal with the railroad
problem. The association, he said,
used the property investment ac
count of the carriers as the basis
upon which to apply the per
cent., because the Interstate Com
merce Commission had found that
the only available basis for prompt,
determination of sufficiency of the
return upon investment.
"It was a fundamental of the
Warfield plan, the witness said, that
labor should participate in the
earnings of the carriers.
I.abor and Public to Share
"We believe," he declared, "that
capital is entitled to its return of
six per cent.: that labor is entitled
to a fair wage and that the excess
earned by the carriers after paying
fair wages and six per cent, on cap
ital should be divided with labor
and the public. Labor's share should
be used for the establishment of the
insurance system or for profit-shar
ing. By reason of the largely in
creased duties which will fall upon
the commission the security holders
ask Congress to create six- regional
Interstate Commerce Commissions,
subordinate to the commission, but
with all the powers of the Inter
state Commerce Commission in their
respective territories.
"Our plan contemplates that these
regional commissions shall act as
boards of conciliation in settling
wage disputes, being a body close
to the employes, the carriers and
the shippers.
Operate Without Profit
"The issuance of securities of all
carriers engaged in interstate com
merce would be vested exclusively in
Federal authority.
"This plan would create a cor
poration operated without profit to
the railroads and managed by the
nine Interstate Commerce Commis
sioners and eight railroad men se
lected by the railroads. This cor
poration would furnish expert ad
vice to the commission in the oper
ation of carriers, would unify term
inals. would operate equipment such
as has been built by the railroad ad
ministration and allocated to the in
dividual railroads. It would furnish
a great clearing house for railroad
operation and in times of emer
gency would constitute the directing
force for the handling of the rail
roads as a single system."

Rumania Does Not
Favor Archduke Joseph
By Associated Press.
Paris, Wednesday* Aug. 13.—Ru
mania does not favor the installa
tion of Archduke Joseph in power in
Hungary, according to a declaration
made to the Temps by Victor Anto
nesco, Rumanian minister here.
"The Bucharest government has
no reason for sympathy, either for
archduke personally or the reaction
ary regime which he represents."
M. Antonesco says. "Rumania cer
tainly will not support any govern
ment In Budapest which is not ac
ceptable to the Entente.
In discussing the alleged seizures
of supplies in Hungary by Rumanian
forces, the minister says: "The Ru
manian army's requisitions do not
nearly approach those of the Hun
garians in Rumania during the war.
Rumanian representatives in Buda
pest have received strict Instructions
to examine this question in accord
with Entente representatives."
M. Antonesco continues by saying
that the "happy result" of Ruma
nia's intervention has been to per
mit allied and associated represen
tatives to re-enter Budapest and the
suppression of Bolsheviki propa
ganda. He says that it now is the
task of the Allies, with Rumania's
assistance, to install in Budapest
a government with which a definite
peace may be concluded.
"I am sure," he concludes, "the
Allies will find our representatives
devoted to friendly collaborators.
The bonds of union, between France
and Rumania especially, are too
strong ever to be broken for mere
questions of form."

Philadelphia. Aug. 14. lf the

sumption and if possible increase
the amount of cereal foods they nor

entered the war and restrictions
were placed on the use of bread

"Food substitution during the war
accomplished much, guided by the

Mr. Barnes. "Is it possible to use

and secure not only a reversion to
our normal cereal consumption, but
perhaps an increase?"
Week of Fasting Is
Urged to Break Food
Price by Physician
Connellsvillc, Pa., Aug. 14.—Fa
yette county physicians, or at least
some of them, are advising a fast
of one week to cause a reduction in
food prices. The physicians state
that any one above 16 can fast a
week with beneficial results and that
a half million dollars would be saved
by Fayette county folks in that
The physicians suggest that only
water be taken in the six-day fast.
In discussing the proposed fqst. a
physician said:
"Such a fast will positively not
injure any one. I would be willing
to undertake a trial fast of a week
with other Connellsville people sim
ply to demonstrate the feasibility of
the plan and its beneficial results
physically. Water, of course, is to
be taken, but, thank heaven, that
costs little. If there are any per

People Demand Costly
Shoes, Plaint of Makers
Boston. Aug. 14.—Shoes retailing
for $6 and $7 a pair are a drug on
the market, according to witnesses
who appeared yesterday at the
grand jury investigation of the high
cost of living. They testified that
customers demand a more expen
sive grade and that as a result
profits have to be made on the finer
grades of leather, while there is no
call for parts of hides formerly used
for manufacturing cheaper shoes.
The needs of iore'ign governments
after the war began and the in
creased demand for shoes after
America became a party to the con
flict were among the causes of the
increased price, according to other
witnesses. Tanners and manufac
turers, it was asserted, were all anx
ious to have prices drop.
Witnesses examined included El
mer Bliss, president of the Regal
Shoe Company: James L. Devaney,
an employe of the Armour Leather
Company: Louis Jolles. James R.
Gormley and Ernest G. Howes.
