uOn behalf of 3,700 manufac

hold to the principle of arbitra

and firm a purpose as anyone, but
that unfortunately there is no
means now in existence by which
arbitration can be secured. The
existing means have been tried
and have failed. This situation
must never be allowed to arise
again but it has arisen. Some
means must be found to prevent
its recurrence, but no means can
be offhand or in a hurry or in
season to meet the present nation
al emergency. What I am pro
posing does not weaken or dis
credit the principle of arbitration.
It strengthens it rather. It pro-
poses that nothing be conceded
except the 8-hour day, to which
the whole economic movement of
the timeeems to point and the
immediate creation of an agency
forueterming all the arbitration
elements in this case in the light
aoi of predictions or forecasts
but of established and ascertained
facts. This is the first stage of
the direct road to the discovery
of the most permanent basis for

RUSSIANS IN SIGHT OF HUNGARY.
Fighting on Crest of Carpathians Overlooklnz
the Plains, Have Pushed Across Stokfiod.
Sunday's dispatches say in the
east the Russians are apparently
centering their efforts on their
new drive toward Kovel. Berlin
admits that General Brussiloff's
troops have crossed the Stokhod
at one point and Petrograd says
that the Russians have pushed on
beyond the river and captured a
series of heights on the road to
Kovel. Fierce fighting continues
on the crest of the Carpathians,
where the Russians are battling
within sight of the Hungarian
plains. No indication has been
given however, of the strength
of the forces engaged in this re
gion and it is uncertain as yet
whether General Brussiloff is
making a serious effort to invade
The offensive on the Saloniki
front is slowly developing andthe
fighting is growing in intensity
on the 150-mile battle line from
Lake Presba to Lake Doiran.
Both sides claim minor successes
but apparently no action of first
importance has occurred. An
interesting feature on this front
is the advance of Bulgarian de
tachments toward the Greek sea
port of Kavala. This port is well
to the east of the allied front and
the purpose of the Bulgarian
move is not made clear in the dis
patches. On the western front the French
continue to press forward in the
neighborhood of Guillemont and
Paris reports the capture of a
strongly fortified wood- between
that town and Maurepas.
In the Verdun sector the Ger
mans are. fiercely counter-attacking
in an effort to regain Fleury,
the loss of which they concede.
The British report the repulse of
German counter-attacks and the
capture of a portion of trenches
north of Bazentin-le Petit.
