WAR STRIKE BILL Is FasscO .After Amendment to Permit Bonn fide Walkouts. By Associated Preaa. WiASHINGTQN, JMarch 7.- minisir'ation bill declaring that Ziroval of the defense council. Tbc pathfinder'car, Mr. Connell has been notified, is preparing to start.on a return trip over Ujc National Pike and he has offered, to meet the car at any point on the pike to accompany it over the proposed route. The car is making the*trip to determine the best- route which tho government could u s e j from.the Central Stales to the sea-i board. William Howard Taft, ex-president of the United States, who will address the Fayette County Bar association at Uniontown tonight, went through Connellsville at 11 o'clock this morn- Ing on a special West Penn street car. It had been the intention of the reception committee to make the trip from Greensburg to Uniontown by automobile, but the machine sent for the speaker broke down before it reached Groensburg. A quick change of plans was necessary and a special West Penn street car was chartered. There was no demonstration in this city, the car stopping for only a few minutes. There was only a .small crowd at tbe "West Penn station to meet the car, it not being generally known here that Mr. Taft was going through via the West Penu. Some members of tho county bar association boarded the car here. On the special car were Senator W. E. Crow, Judge J. Q. Van Swearingen, Judge E. H. Reppert, Judge J. C. Work, R. TV. Playford, M. H. Bowman. John Lynch, K. E. Umbel, A. P. Austin, G. S. Harah and A. C. Hagan, composing the reception committee which met Mr. Taft in Greensbnrg. A crowd of several hundred person- had congregated at Broadway and I'ittsburg street when .the former came to the platform of the car, beaming as he always does; waved a greeting to the assemblage and made a brief speech. Like in all his public discussion he urged the people to stand shoulder to shoulder to win the conflict, .eclar- inr; there is no doubt as to the outcome with a united America facing the .kaiser. It may be necessary; : for the people- to endure many hardships in the next three years, but asserted there is no other road to victory. A notable feature of the visit was the presentation to the former president of a small American flag in behalf of the Scottdale Red Cross. Tho presentation was made by Miss Caro- eipectal that at least 200 farmers will attend the banquet at which the chief topic will be securing of farm labor and the assurance of curb markets in the city tho coming summer. .
