(1 LIVE PLACE, Railway Brotherhoods Agree to Mediate Their Differences With Railroads of the Country. New Toik, Aug. 9.--The threatened strikeot' the 400,000 railway employes of the United States was averted today when the railroad brotherhoods accepted a proffer of the United States board of mediation and conciliation to mediate with the rail- 'crcnce of railroad managers today again ·ejected the demands of the four rail- ·o'ad brotherhoods for an eight-hour day and time and a half for overtime and jropotod submission of their differences w i t h the mon to the. United States board of mediation and conciliation. This proposal A. (i. Carretbon ,in behalf of the brotherhoods, rejected. Klisha Lee, f h a i r m a n of the i ail road Conference, in proposing that their differences be mediated by the federal board called attention to the fact that the br i.horhoods had previously declined irbitration under the New-lands act, providing for six arbitrators, but that the railroads saw no other way out of their difficulties than thiough ne.liation.

Washington, Aug. 9.--The second effort of the administration's government shipping board to undertake rehabilitation of the American merchant marine began in the senate today under conditions in marked contrast to those which characterized the hotly fought losing struggle in the last congress. When Senator Simmons called up the measure there was no quorum present and the sergeant at arms had to seek aid. Before a quorum developed Senator Penrose moved that the senate adjourn and it was more than half an hour before sufficient votes could be mustered to defeat the motion. With democrats united on the bill and no party revolt in prospect ssiich as accomplished defeat of tho bill before the issue was apathetic. Senator Simmons notified his colleagues that he had little to say that had not been said before. Informal conferences of republicans and democrats early in the day regarding the prospect of adjournment of congress disclosed that republicans were anxious to dispose of the shipping bill and all other pending legislation as rapidly as possible. Senator Harding, of Ohio, who w i l l direct opposition to the shipping bill for the minority, said he thought the measure could be disposed of in less than a week. Senator Kern informed him that nn effort would be mado to dispose of nil pending business that congress might adjourn by Sept. 1. Senator Harding explained that the republicans hope adjournment might be reached as early as Saturday, Aug. 26. Washington, D.

DEMANDS REJECTED. New York, Aug. 9.--The national con- , the organization for furnishing workmen in cases of strikes, was apparently indifferent as to results of the trial. He brought the largest diamond ever displayed in police court on the middle finger' of his right hand when he sauntered in and took his seat beside his attorney. --»»--- Hephaestus Disappears; Whereabouts is Mystery Hephaestus has not visited Fort Wayne for many « day. He took his departure o'clock on from our midst the morning of at 4:10 July 31. Since t h a t time nothing has been hc;i»l of his whereabouts in this vicinity. It is the opinion of many that he is now enjoying his summer vacation. This is the fir«t time in many years that he has taken as long a vacation as the one this year. At noon today he had been gone nearly 22o hours, a record for the summer months. And moreover, no one in the city is wishing for his return un- less it be the schoolboy who is yearning for some excitement. This important personage, known to the students of Greek history as the Uod of V'irc, has been very kind to the firemen of the city during the recent hot spell. Not even as much as a small chimney fire or'a fire at tho city dumps has been reported to the firehouses in the city since a week ago last Monday. August as a rule is a month for fires, hut this year it has proved to be an exception. The cause cannot be explained, except it be that no one has stirred up the ire of his lordship, Hephaestus. The oats and wheat crops of the farmers of Allen and adjacent counties are not as good this year as was expected earlier in the season. The wheat was exceptionally poor in most cases, while the oats was only fair. One farmer reported that the ir'ieat only averaged ten bushels to the acre, which is very poor. He stated that this did not even cover one-third of the cost of sowing and harvesting it. His oats crop averaged thirty bushels to the acre, which according to his estimation, was only fair. This is not only the statement of one farmer, but of many. A few country gentlemen report good crops, but these are very few. Threshing is going on in full blast in nil sections of tho county.

Second Lieutenant Howard Miller and three other memben of company K, of Fort Wayne, will verj likely return to this city to take charge of the station here which was opened a few days ago by Captain John K.

The dispatch from the young of- I ficer was directed to his wife at 1104 West Jeffcison street, and was to the effect that lie had left for the capita! citv of Indana. ' Xo official outers have been received for the action that the government is Northeast of Verdun the bitter * taking, but it is very likely that the liseo Arredonclo, General Garranza'3 ] ' " ambassador designate, has been au- hcrizcd to arrange with Acting Secretary Polk details as to tho time and place of meeting. Mr. Arredondo called at the state department during he day and gave further assurances ot tho willingness of the de facto government to have the scope of the coni- nission's discussions as broad as the Jnitecl States desires. General Caranza prefers that withdrawal of American troops from Mexico and steps to prevent border troubles be taken up first, but Arredondo said he .vould not object to having other qucs- .ions considered.

After three days of violent fighting, in which the cavalry was finally brought up to reinforce the infantry, all the defensive works of the city which had resisted the advance of the Italians fell into their hands. Reports show, the correspondent says, that the retreating Austrians arc now being pursued by Italian cavalry. NEWS IS CONFIRMED.
