    Cooler Weather Credited With Aiding Recovery of President Who Is Allowed to Sit Up |
Creation of Arbitration Board
by the President and Con
gress Also Advocated at
Washington Conference
Labor Delegates Want It End
ed; Representatives of Pub
lic Propose Means to Allay
I nrest; Gompers Suggests
By Associated Press,
Washington, Oct. 9.—An im
mediate industrial truce to con
tinue three months; creation of
an arbitration board by the
President and Congress, and
immediate arbitration of the na
tion-wide steel strike were the
proposals made to-day to the
Industrial Conference here. The
first two were presented by rep
resentatives of the public and
the last by the labor group.
Bernard M. Baruch, chairman of
the public group, made the proposal
for the industrial truce, while Sam- j
ucl Gompers, president of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor and chair
man of the labor group, proposed
arbitration of the steel strike. Mr.
Gompers' plan contemplated imme
diate return of the steel strikers to
work pending the outcome of efforts
to arbitrate the dispute.
Permanent Board
Gavin McXab, of San Francisco,
proposed a permanent arbitration
board, bis resolution which had the
approval of the public group, pro- :
Mding that ail living ex-Presidents I
be members.
Mr. Gompers' board of arbitration •
of the steel strike would be com- !
posed of six members, two to be ap- i
p'ointed by each of the three groups
in the conference —capital, labor :
and the public.
Mr. Gompers also presented a res
olution embodying eleven funda
mental principles, which he em
phasized had the unanimous ap
proval of the labor group, including
the representatives of the four rail
road brotherhoods.
They were:
Right of*wage-earners to organize.
Right of collective bargaining.
Right of wage-earners to be rep
resented by representatives of its
own choosing in negotiations with
Freedom of speech, of the press,
and of assemblage.
Right of employers to organize
and bargain collectively.
Minimum eight-hour day with one
day of rest in each week, and with
a half-holiday on Saturday encour
aged and overtime discouraged.
Payment of a living wage.
Women to receive the same pay
as men for eaual work.
Prohibition of labor for children
under 16 years of age.
"To secure a greater share of con
sideration and co-operation to the
workers in all matters affecting the
industry in which they are en
gaged," a national conference board
was proposed to provide for the sys
tematic review of industrial relations
and conditions, the board to consist
of an equal number of representa
tives of employers and workers, hav
ing due regard to the various sec
tions of industry and classes of
workmen. Formation of the board
will be encouraged by the Depart
ment of Labor.
Prohibition of all immigration for
at least two years after the declara
tion of peace and at such times
thereafter as there may be an ab
normal condition of unemployment.
At no time would immigration be
permitted to exceed the nation's
ability to Americanize the incoming

Washington, Oct. 9. President

For the first time since lie was
called in a week ago, Dr. Sterling
Rulfin, of this city, was not present
at this morning's consultation. Dr.
Francis X. Dercum, the noted Phila
delphia neurologist, who was sum
moned to Washington when the
President's condition took a turn for
the worse more than a week ago,
probably will sec the President
again Saturday.
The President continued to-day to
have a good appetite and according
to officials at the White House had
a very good night—one of the best
lie has had.
Cool weather was credited to-day
by President Wilson's physicians
with aiding in his recovery, which
has now reached the stage where lie
is able to spend part of his time
sitting up. The unseasonable heat
during Ihe last few days was de
clared to have greatly retarded the
patient's progress, and with the
change he is able to slpep and to
gain more strength from his rest.
The President still was prohibited to
day from doing any work, although
his physicians said he was well
enough to resume the duties of his
office should any emergency arise.

Pittsburgh, Oct. 9.—A clash be
jtween negro workers and foreign-
I born strikers at Donora to-day. re
sulted in two men being shot and
wounded and a number injured.
The crowd was scattered by the State
Police without serious casualties.
The State Troopers were assisted
by local police and deputies.
According to the Burgess of Do-
Inora there were about 20 in the
attacking party who lay in wait for
I workers going to and from the plant
I here of the American Steel and Wire
Company. When a party of eight
or ten workers, whites and negroes,
! came along they were assailed by
all kinds of missiles. The workers
, fought back and there was some

; police and a call was sent in for
Ithe State Troops. The clash lasted
| but a few minutes and it was found
| that two men. alleged to have been
i members of the attacking party,
' were shot in the legs. The men,
after their wounds were dressed,
were arrested.
Many Arrests Made
A number of other arrests were
made, and the Burgess said more
would follow before night. A
thorough investigation is being made
by the borough authorities.
The shooting to-day followed a
number of small outbreaks between
workers and strikers and their
sympathizers, according to the

to-day who left S2O at Chamber of

By this campaign it is proposed to

The eighth game of the world's;
championship baseball series will be. |
played here this afternoon, unless
all indications fail. The sun broke 1
through the clouds shortly before i
noon and shone down brilliantly. ;
An extremely high wind sprang 1
up, however, and unless this abates j
at game time, the fielding end of the !
contest will be decidedly uncertain. :
The scene at the ball yard to-day !
appeared more natural for a world's
series. The vast stretches of bleach
ers were more than three-fourths ;
filled two hours before game time [
and a constant stream of humanity
was pouring through the gates. The
pavilion seats were also well oc

The Reds came on the field a min- |
ute later and went through the ,

ular position in the batting practice ;
and appeared certain to be Gleason's .
choice in the box.

Claude "Lefty" Williams, twice de-I
fcated by the Reds but holding them !
to an aggregate of eight hits in the
two games, was expected to be Glea- I
son's selection for mound duty.
Williams' pitching was of high or
der, but each time he opposed twirl- [
i rs before whom the White Sox heavy i
hitters virtually were powerless. With!
the assertion that "his boys" had re
covered their batting eyes and fight
ing spirit, as was evidenced yester
day and Tuesday when they batted
from the box Reuther and Sallee, who
oyercame them in the first two bat
tles, Manager Gleason was confident
his star left bander would pitch a
comeback game as did Cicotte yes
Murnii Confident
Manager Moran, while somewhat
surprised that his charges had failed
in two attempts to assume the Na
tional League champions possession
of the 1919 world's championship,
merely pointed to the breaks of the
, game as responsible for what he
termed the "postponement." He
seemed confident to-day would end
I the series, making unnecessary the
I ninth game to-morrow at Cincinnati,

"Red" Faber, hero of the 1917
I world's series, was mentioned as a
; White Sox pitching possibility to-
I day, but the consensus of opinion was
I that Williams would be given the
j honor. Faber is said to have recov
! ered form though he was virtually
I on the retired list all the season.
In their renewed hope that the
| White Sox yet would win the series,
i local enthusiasts began to cast about
' for precedents to fortify them in what
I some others regarded as a rather far-
I fetched desire. •
It was found that the American
League representatives would have
to establish yet another record in this
record-establishing series to be re
turned winners. In no world's series
has a club won four straight games
when its opponents needed but a
single contest. In 1907 Frank
Chance's old Chicago Cub machine
took four straight from Detroit after
the tirst game ended in a tie, the re
search divulged. And four straight
victories by the Boston Nationals over
1 hiladelphia Americans and by the
Boston Americans from the Philadel
phia Nationals after the latter had
taken the tirst game, also were found.
"Can lie Hone"
Regarded as most reassuring in its
value as directly concerning the
White Sox, however, was the record
of the 1912 city series when the Sox.
with their backs to the wall after
the Cubs had taken three straight,
fell on their National League rivals
and won the necessary four games.
That showed it "can be done" some
Few wagers on the outcome of the
series were reported to-day. Prevail
ing odds on the series result appar
ently were 2M to 2 and even money on
to-day's game.
