A republican sub-committee of five senators, headed by Senator J. J. Davis, Pennsylvania, former secretary of labor, was appointed (o consolidate Republican Ideas and put lhe proposed changes into ' legislative form.

Davis, "Puddler Jim" of the steel mills, was appointed lo head the sub-committee because of his knowledge of the steel industry, In which the threat of a general strike was approaching a crisis at a Pittsburgh convention of ,steel workers.
