BENDER United Press Staff Corresg>on<lent. Washington, Dec. 15—The whole subject of peace and the part America can play, if any, will undoubtedly be threshed out in this afternoon's cabinet session. Confidential information from secretary Grew of the American Berlin embassy despatched with Germany's proposals will be presented to the members, along with other data giving versions of foreign attitude toward peace. The state department was reliably understood to be collecting this forenoon all its past information bearing on the subject of peace. This, taken with news messages, indicated a sentiment on the allies part against yielding up the struggle to diplomacy at this moment. Meantime, German officials hint here, pointed to a willingness to talk of at least a partial disarmament and likewise a willingness for introduction of a world guaranty of peace. The administration now feels that there may be instructive discussion of the peace proposals among the allies, but has no reason to believe that the present proposals themselves will at once point the way to peace. Petrograd's semi-official sta*cment that Germany is deluding her own people and trying to cast the responsibility for continuance of the war elsewhere ls regarded as a general allied viewpoint. In these circumstances President Wilson and his advisors are admittedly still puzzled to know just what attitude and what action, if any to take. It was expected that the cabinet sessio would serve to clear the official atmosphere and that it might be productive of some definite information to the public as to what this government proposes to do. Ottawa, Ont., Dec. 15—The names of three more Americans today appear in the Canadian casualties list. They are: Wounded — Private S. Snow (mounted rifles) Green, Maine; Bomardier H. Turland, (Artillery), Detroit. Seriously 111—Sergeant T. Nivin (Engineers), Detroit. i AMER AMERICAN RED CROSS WILL SOON MOVE INTO FINE NEW BUILDING il -'•' TRAFFIC TIED IN NEW YORK'S HEAVY SNOW U.S. SUBMARINE CREW MEMBERS ARE RESCUED Eureka, Calif., Dec. IB—Plans to drag the U. S. submarine H. 3 out of tbe breakers where she has been rolling and pitching for 24 hours, were rushed to completion today by- Lieut. Commander Wm. B. Howe, following the rescue of the twenty- eight members of the crew through the medium of a breeches buoy. Despite the divers perilous position, Howe declared today he believed she can be taken off little damaged, if a storm does not blow. In response to a request sent to the Mare Island navy yard for a vessel with gear for handling the submarine, the coast guard ship McCul- lough came here today with a large force of men prepared to expedite the work. The two officers and 26 men who were taken off just before night fall yesterday were suffering today from severe bruises and some with broken hands but none was in a condition requiring more than temporary aid. From the stories told by them it was clear that the submarine lost its way in the dense fofi and drifted into the breakers when the engines developed trouble. Members of the crew said that until they were rescued they had no definite idea as to the location of their vessel. eSo dense was the fog that it was impossible to get their bearings. She began to scrape on the sand and the engines went out of commission. This left the craft entirely helpless. For hours, she lurched about wildly at the mercy of the waves. Several times the con CONSENT TO GRANT ! HIM SAFE CONDUCT London, Dec. 15—Acceding to the request of the United States the allies have consented to grant Count Tarnowski, the newly appointed Austro-Hungarian ambassador to Washington safe conduct to America.

New York, Dec. 15.—Ocean liners with delayed conditions were rapidly approaching a traffic tie-up and streets were being clogged with snow here today, as the first real storm of the winter gained headway. Starting at 5:30 this morning, a heavy snowfall continued for hours. At noon, several Inches of snow had ■fallen and there were no signs of abatement. Twenty-two liners, foreign and domestic, were due at quarantine early today. Only six appeared. The others were delayed by the storm. Tugs and other small craft made their way about the harbor with greatest difficulty. WAGON WORKS GRIPPED BY DESTROYER By United Press. Lansing, Mich., Dec. 15.—The Lansing Wagon Works, one of the oldest concerns in Michigan, was burning -this morning. With the mercury registering below zero the Lansing fire department battled desperately and early this morning a call was sent to Jackson for help. A section of the Jackson fire ed- partment started for Lansing at 7 a. m. sharp was the angle at which she reeled. But the crew suffered no Berious discomfort until water got into the batteries and chlorine gas was released. This deadly gas forced the commander to shut his crew off in a tiny room in the conning tower. There the 28 men sat huddled. They were so exhausted when the life lines were shot aboard that they did not bave the strength to make them fast and they would never have been rescued had it not been for the courage of Surfman Werner Sweinns. He leaped from the surf boat to the slippery deck of the submersible and finally made fast a line after he had twice been washed off and twice had fought his way back. Commander Howe declared today that he expected to have salvage work well under way before noon and that he believes the H. 3 would be saved. him against possible French raiders. He talked with officers and told them Marion, 0., Dec. 15—Three persons were probably fatally hurt this morning when an elevator cable at the Uhler-Phillips dry goods store broke and the cage dropped three its regular count today when a boycott of northern Ohio producers became effective.

Statements from the east indicated winter has caused no let up in Russia's offensive in the Carpathians. Nor has there been any diminution of the fighting in Rumania. The German advance is slowly losing its momentum in the face of Rumanians strong rear guard resistance, made as they retreat to the strategic line of the Buzeu river. Before long there will be complete consolidation of the Buzeu river line of Rumanian defense with the Russian Carpathian line of offense. Russia is likely to strongly reinforce this whole line. Great interest was manifested here in a despatch from Paris connecting up Monday's violent German attack on the French lines nearest Paris with Von Bethmann-Hollweg's peace proposals of the same day. The assault was declared to have been carried out by the flower of the German, troops and with a force of probably 10,ft00 men. The attack has not been specifically mentioned in official statements. Apparently bitter fighting is still going on in Macedonia with the allied forces under General Serrail continuing satisfactory progress. England looks to see diversion of German forces to aid the Bulgarians i here very shortly—with a consequent increase in the intensity of the' fighting. Evansville, Ind., Dec. 14—That holding an employe in any service against his will is neither necessary or just and is slavery in the strictest sense, W. G. Lee, president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen today condemned agitation for compulsory investigation of disputes in speaking before the central states rail and waterway conference here today. "We hold to the right to work or to quit as we decide will be for our best interests," said Lee. "Our wel- 1 fare, decently expressed and fairly insisted upon is our flrst interest, although it may inconvenience the public. If it comes to an issue as to whether the public be inconvenienced or we be forced to work for wages we believe unfair and under conditions we do not like, we are within our rights in deciding in favor of our own welfare first. "Compulsory investigation means compulsory service which we oppose. Employers will insist on their right to hire and discharge and the employe on his right to work or quit. "It is certain that the present methods or arbitration have outlived their usefulness. Both sides are suspicious of the result of arbitration and we are not in favor of continuing the present plan." In speaking on government ownership of railroads, Lee stated: "The right of the government te take over railroads under stress of military necessity is one the employees will not question as long as it holds strictly to that proposition. We believe that authority now exists but if for making the purpose quite clear, further legislation is necessary, the employes will not object to it."

Columbus, Dec. 15.—Ohio shippers and consignees today started an organized fight against proposed increased demurrage rates in Ohio which were ordered recently for interstate commerce by the interstate commerce commission. D. F. Hurd, traffic man for the Cleveland chamber of commerce; G. M. Freer, representing the Cincinnati chamber and J. G. Young, on behalf of the Columbus chamber were among others who lined up against the railroads in a hearing here today before the state utilities commission. The proposed demurrage boost would tax consignee sas high as $5 a day for freight left unloaded, instead of the present uniform charge of $1 a day. Railroads claim it is necessary to prevent speculation by brokers and to relieve the car shortage. Freer, representing Cincinnati shippers, said railroads themselves are to blame for the car shortage in their slow movement of freight and the "bunching" of cars in such great numbers that consignees can't unload them ln the "free time" allowed.
