Washington. Oct. S. Representa tives of the public evinced a spirited desire for action, rather than orator', at the opening session today of the in- ujstria: conlcrtnce call by President VV :!son. Apparently with the determination of d.fTerenuating this conference from many similar gatherings held in Wash ington, the publics delegates demand ed mat sessions be held night and day. if necessary, to establish a basis for harmonious relations between capital and labor during the present abnormal economic conditions. ' Bernard M. Karuth of New York, one of these dele gates, was active In dire'tirtg the af fairs of the conference, which was con sidered significant in view of his close friendship with President Wilson and hi freqaent visits to the White House. After the appointment of committees rvo nominations and ruies. the confer ence adjourned to meet tomorrow morning. Gavin McXab of San Fran cisco, a representative of the public, was mentioned prominently for perma nent chairman of the conference, but members of both committees declined to indicate what their recommenda tions would be. A motion to adjourn by W. D. Ma rion, one of the delegates of the Amer ican Federation of Labor, brought the first indication that the men named to represent the public were prepared t oforee results. Thomas L. Chad oume of New York, who sat with Mr. Baruch. took the floor immediately. "AI! the men on both sides and in the middle of this hall." he said, refer nrf to the seating arrangement, whereby the delegates of capital and labfr were on either hand of the public representatives' seats, "are here to work as rapidly as possible and to ad- iKurn as little as possible: and I know that the men in the middle of this sit uation want to carry on these confer ence day and night if necessary, to get through. I would like very much to see the motion changed so we can meet arain this afternoon or evening." Vr. Mahon explained that a meeting of the executive council of the federa tion had been called some time previ ously which it was impossible to post pone, and Mr. Chadboume withdrew his sugsestion. Later on, however. Mr. McXab took the floor with the me thought as that expressed by Mr. Chadboume. "In view of the fact that this con ference is in the interest of harmony." !a;d Mr. McNab. "suppose we set the rxampie of working harmoniously and rot making the principal and first fea ture of it a desire to adjourn."' He declared the conference should show the people of the country how to work, but did not press the point, and the motion to adjourn was carried. Virtually every delegate was in his w-a: when Secretary Wilson called the meeting to order in the Pan-American union buildings beautiful Hall of the Americas. John Barrett, director-general of the -union, in welcoming the delegates to the use of the building, erected through the generosity of the late Andrew Carnegie, called attention to the fact that this conference en -davorir.g to stabilize industrial peace was meeting in a structure devoted to ma.ntainirg th" peace of the western hmusphere. The very decorations of the ha!!, he pointed out, bore the word "Pax." ' May I emphasize." Mr. Barrett said, "that the Pan-American union is a great, practical, working league of na tions the only league of nations the on:y league of nations in the world that that has long been and is a going con tra. It. !ts governing board, its staff, it; equipment and this building form also an actual industrial plant that manufactures and distributes products good will and Information that make for permanent peace and wlefare of the western hemisphere and hence of all th world. -rurir-g the last thirteen years the ipreme council, composed of Latin -m-ican diplomatic representatives in a.-ninrton and the secretary of state of the United States, which gathers every month, has prevented through its moral inuence six wars between 1," governments and peo- j I OS.' Secretary Wilson to!d the delegates thy had been given opportunity for r ndid achievement and wished them Ciodspeed on behalf of the president. The only discordant element affect ing the conference was the absecne of John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers, who is engaged in wage ne gotiations that threaten a strike, and Frank Duff of the carpenters, who was said to have declined to attend . the conference. Officials of the American Federation of I.abor. however, said that as representation in the conference was not on the basis of trade-, both .-niners and carpenters might be said to have spokesmen in the other labor trade J. All of the railroad unions sent delegates. -Ater the roll had been called. Paul I- Ffw of Cleveland announced from the public delegates' section that- his name had been omitted in the calling. With seme embarrassment, the tempo rary secretary. Rowland B. Mahany. of the denartment of labor, replied that he had been informed there had been death in Mr. Fe'ss" family and as it was not known --hether ir twas teh delegate hrr.sTf. his mme had been nitted. Mr. Fei smilingly accented The explanation and assurance from Fertary Wilson that his presence ln th fleh was verv welcome. The following statement van !sued h v Magnns W. Alexander, managing director of the national industrial con ference board, at the conclusion of the sewion: "Secretarv of Labor Wilson voiced the sentiments of the employers when h declared in hi opening address that the rrnrf productive we are the foonor w will replace the watar of war, re "ii fi to normal price levels, and abol jh the porronitv for nndue proflteer . a,nd his further declaration that the tifeTnce has hefore It the op. nut t unity for promoting the welfare of rountrv ami of all mankind.

"I go home," Cardinal Mercier said, "recompensed and fortified by your sympathy, and when I tell my people they also will be fortified. 1 can say to you that America has become a sacred name in Belgium. "More than one year ago, before the signing of the armistice I gave in structions to all my clergy that as soon as we got peace I would see that in each parish church of my diocese one should be keptand on that stone should be engraved an inscription to commemorate America's sympathy to Belgium. There will be erected in my country a monument, a church dedi cated to the United States of America. "What I consider one of the factors in our victory was the self-abnegation of that great man General Pershing. Owing to this .self abn ration we finalLy attained in our armies the un ity of command which had powerfully contributed to the success of the Ger man armies. We owe another debt of gratitude for the work of relief for Belgium under Hoover, a man of character." An illuminated address "a testimon ial to the wonderful power of'your in fluence towards great and noble ends the . re-establishment of peace, jus tice an liberty." was presented to the Belgian primate by the New England Belgian Relief Committee.

Allen of the committee of seven, authorized by local officers and Gov ernor Brough to investigate the trouble, charging that the affair was anorganized negro uprising, fostered by a negro who preyed On "the ig norance and superstitution of a race of children for monetary gains. Mr. Allen, who was one of the ieadr irig men marked for death, after hear ing confessions, examining circulars and other evidence procured by state and military officers in connection with the work of the committee, is sued the following statement to ex plain what the committee had found to be the situation leading to the kill- 1 ing of . five white men and upwards of. a score of negroes: "The pt-esent trouble with the ne groes in Phillips county is not a race riot.' It is a deliberately planned in surrectibn of the negroes against the whites directed by an organization known as the 'Progressive Farmers and Household Union of America,' es tablished for the purpose of banding negroes together for the killing ?of white people.' .This union was started by Robert L. Hill, a negro 26 years of age, of Westchester, Ark., who saw in it , an opportunity of making easy money. He ; had been a farmer all his life 'but lately had been posing as a 'private detective - doing work in this and all foreign countries." '"Hill' started his first union work in April of this year," Mr. Allen said. "He told the negroes It was neces sary for all members of the union to arm themselves in preparation for the day when they should be called upon to attack their white oppress-1 ors. , "Negro men were charged $1.50 en trance fees and negro women fifty cents," Mr. Allen said in his state ment. "Another 'form of extortion was to sell shares of $10 .each to all the ne groes in a' proposed building to be erected by the union. at Winchester,"' the statement says. "Hill would find out what negroes possessed thrift stamps and Liberty bonds and, would issue a certificate stating that so many shares had been purchased at $10 per share and all negroes buying shares to the amount of fifty dollars or more were told that their names would be engraved in the building. In other words he had so planned his campaign that any negro possessing from fifty cents, to fifty dollars was given an opportunity to invest in something connected with the union. "Another scheme used by Hill to obtain money was to appoint two lead ing negroes in each lodge as a 'pri vate and foreign detective,' furnishing them large nickel plated stars and a pair of nickel plated handcuffs for which they paid $50 each. "His meeting at Winchester in Au gust was attended and addressed by wnne men. He simply played upon the ignorance and superstition of a race of children most of whom neith er read or write. - "I have cross-examined and talked to at least one hundred prisoners at Elaine. They belong to different lodg es in that section. The stories they ten are almost Identical as to the promises and representations made toy im. He even told the mthat prob ably some of the negroes would be called upon to die before equil rights would be assured but they must look upon themselves as crusaders and die if necessary to secure the freedom of the other members of their race. "All lodge meetings were required to maintain armed 'outer guard' of six sentinels. Hill's usual expression was Get . your racks filled for the day to come. "As far as oppression is concerned many of the negroes Involved own mules, horses, cattle and automobiles and clear money every year on then crops after expenses are paid." Authorities Hoday continued their search for Ed Ware, alleged ringlead er of a band of twenty insurgents.-who is still at large. Hill has not been captured.
