International Conference Is
Seeking to Eliminate Un
fair Trade Practices
By Associated Press•
Atlantic City, N. J., Oct. 20.
Establishment of a permanent inter
national organization of businessmen
for the purpose of eliminating un
fair international trade ' practices,
working out a better system of credit
and finance in the international ex
change of goods and acting as a
clearing house for ideas with regard
to manufactures and commerce, is
expected to result from the inter
national trade, conference which is
to be held here this week. Informal
conferences and subcommittee meet
ings were begun to-day, and will con
tinue until the formal sessions begin
Wednesday night.
This new organization probably
will supplant the international con
gress of chambers of commerce and
commercial industrial associations
which for 14 years have been a com
mon clearing house for the business
ideas of the world. Its functions
having been suspended since June.
1914, the suggestion is now made
that on the invaluable experience of
this organization be erected an even
greater and more closely knit struc
Edward A. Fillne, of Boston, who
was one of the three American dele
gates of the permanent committee of
the International Congress, has pre
pared plans for the new interna
tional body which will be submitted
to the conference for consideration.
Under the tentative plan of the
American delegates, the new organiz
ation will endeavor to bear the same
relation to the League of Nations
on commercial subjects as the Inter
national I>abor Conference, soon to
convene in Washington, will have
regarding labor problems.
At tho first open meeting of the
delegates this morning, the various
foreign missions met the correspond
ing American commissions and de
cided on methods of procedure. Al
fred C. Bedford, of New York, chair
man of the executive committee of
the conference, called, the meeting to
order and introduced John H. Fahey,
of Boston, who delivered an informal
address of welcome and outlined the
work of the program committee, of
which he is chairman.
Lieutenant James M. McMahon, of
the New Cumberland Army Reserve
Depot, sufered a broken right leg
yesterday when thrown from an elec
tric truck.

i Attempt to End Strike Con
gestion on the Piers
By Associated Press.
New Y'ork, Oct. 20.—Five hundred
soldiers of the Regular Army were
landed here to-day from the trans
port George Washington to attempt
to end the congestion at the Army
piers in Brooklyn caused by the
longshoremen's strike. The men are
under orders "to shoot if necessary,"
according to a statement made by
Brigadier General Peter Davison,
•chief of troop movements at the
port of embarkation. The troops
will aid in moving transports or
whatever else is necessary," said
| General Davison.
The soldiers were landed at Ho
boken and immediately transferred
to Governor's Island preliminary to
duty at the Army piers in Brooklyn.
They comprised two battalions of
the Twelfth regular infantry, First
Division,, which was first in Frapce
and first in the fighting. Many had
overseas chevrons and wound
The troops-were under command
of Col. Jeffe M. Cullison, who com
manded the Twenty-sixth infantry
of the First Division in France and
received several decorations. He also

Washington. Oct. 20. —Secretary
Baker to-day refused the request or
Mayor Hylan, of New York, to post
pone the use of troops at New York
until further efforts could be made
to settle the strike of longshoremen
Mr. Baker said maintenance of
Army transport service out of New
York was a part of the war opera
tions of the government and that he
intended to continue the operation
of the ships. He added, however,
that he was willing to co-operate
with Mayor Hylan in any possible
way "to bring about an adjustment
of the strike difficulty."
N. Y. Bank Charges France
Got 20,000,000 Pounds of
Sugar by Blunder of U. S.
New York. Oct. 20.—Simultaneously
with the prediction by Arthur Wil
liams, Federal Food Administrator,
of a sugar famine in New York by
next Tuesday, unless the longshore
men's strike is settled, the Harriman
National Bank published a paid ad
vertisement in a newspaper asserting
the surplus war material recently
sold by the United States to France
included 22,000,000 pounds of sugar.
"tl is obvious" said the advertise
ment, "that inquiry need go no far
ther to discern that the high cost of
living is in a great measure due to
the inefficiency of official Washing
The advertisement added that the
war, material "sold for about $400,-
000,000 and estimated to be worth
$1,750,000,000 included almost every
thing in the list essential to our
present day needs. The report of the
committee on expenditures of the
War Department, to be made to Con
gress should show precisely why so
valuable a quantity" of material was
virtually presented to France at the
expense of the American taxpayer."
America Nation of Tenants,
Says United States Senator
New York, Oct. 20. The United
States has fought all her wars "to
preserve the home" and yet probably
6u per cent, of her people are tenants.
This was the text selected by United
States Senator Calder in an address
before the New York Real Estate As
sociation's convention urging the ne
cessity of a national campaign for the
creation of homes.
''lt has been pointed out that the
United States has been at war on an
average of once in 20 years since the
Constitution was adopted," the Sen
ator said, "and that the object of each
of these wars has been, in the last
analysis to preserve the home. Yet
we find that to the majority of people
ir. this country "home" means little
more than a dwelling for which they
are paying rent."
