Bodies of 28,000 have been recoveredi a death toll that triples former estimates and cuts in half the former population of the native city. These figures were given in a circular issued by the Swatow chamber of commerce from its branch in Hongkong. Rude coffins have been hammered together with lumber salvaged from the wreck of the city. But these cannot be knocked together fast enough tc dispose of bodies which are a sanitary menace to the health of the living. Gunnysacks and mattress bags have been made into crude shrouds. Graves are hurriedly dug in the alluvial flats on which the port was built, that bodies may be interred as they are recovered from the wreckage. Shortage of food may prove another menace. British in Hongkong already have sent $10,000 for relief to the British consul at Swatow. Rice is being shipped from the British colony to the Mutyphoon survivors.

There was a lull Thursday in peace maneuvers in the railroad strike. Rail men were reticent and there was no forecast of where the next peace effort would originate. Strike leaders turned their attention toward Washington, where President Harding had a telegram, sent by the shopmen, accepting his peace proposals upon condition the unions interpretations of the settlement suggestions be recognized. Railroad executives were also awaiting news from the capitol, after their acceptance of all the presidents proposals exceptof ing that regarding restoration seniority rights to strikers. Railroad men noted the invitations of the Southern railway to striking shopmen to negotiate for a settlement based on President Hardings plan, but made no comment At Dallas, Tex., the Texas division headquarters of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas, announced union men, now on strike would be employed only as new men. Violence was reported from six cities in as many states during the fight Carl Spradley was killed during an exchange of shots at Van Buren, Ark., between guards in the Missouri Pacific shops and men said to be strikers. The dead mans brother,' Will Spradley, .was wounded, but will recover, physicians say.

Eighty strike sympathizers attacked more than sixty workers in the Chicago Great Western shops at Des Moines, la. One man was severely injured and a dozen of the workmen were missing when police stepped the fighting. Three special guards of the Southern Pacific at East Bakersfield, Cal., were fired on.

Unless the coming week brings substantial improvement in the coal and rail . situations the administration is expected to move promptly along the following lines: Coal strike Take over the large key mines in the unionized bituminous fields, place them under heavy military guard ,as a precaution against disorder and call upon the miners, to rewhether union or turn to work as employees of the government pending the settlement of the strike. Rail strike Assume control of roads, particularly those in the coal producing regions, whenever it becomes apparent that as a result of the shopmen's strike they are unable to properly serve the public. non-unio- Senator Smoot said he wanted the senate and the country to know that this propaganda that has been spread from one end of the country to the other Is a continuation of the fight against domestic sugar producers by the sugar refiners. "They have made up their minds, he added, never to be contented until they destroy the sugar producers in the, United States. It they succeed the American people will pay dearly.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 12, 1922. portant sections of the tariff bill to be disposed of before the closeof the week was in effect Monday when the senate settled down to its job again. Although it had been found impossible in the struggle last week to formulate a successful program for fixing a definite date for disposing of the bill itself, the agreement finally evolved Saturday, it was hoped would expedite so a final vote could be had before September 1. The agreement to get the more important items still in dispute cleaned up this week, so far as amendments are concerned, came during debate on the sugar schedule. It will serve to curtail sharply discussion on many points and was worked out by several hours of conference between majority and minority representatives. As the senate program now stands, the sugar schedule is to be disposed of by Tuesday, and before adjournment that day a vote will also be taken on amendments to paragraphs dealing with potash and white arsenic. On Wednesday the leather schedule, boots, shoes and hides will go through the mill, and on Friday will come action on sections proposing a flexible tariff adjustment and also on "scientific" tariff proposals.

Senators will work on a time limit during the entire debate this week, being restricted to an hour on any of the amendments included under the schedules named in the agreement. Senator Harrison asked unanimous consent to call up the resolution, but Senator Smoot objected, and then Senator Nicholson (Rep.1, Colorado, made a motion that the sugar schedule be laid aside until there had been an investigation. A point of order by Senator Smoot that this motion was out of order was upheld by Senator Cummins (Rep.) Iowa, who was presiding. Senator Nicholson declared that very serious charges had been made in articles read to the senate Saturday by Senator Harrison, and that he felt the senate should not proceed with the consideration of the sugar schedule until there had been an in vestigation. Borah Urged to Lead New Party Washington. Senator Borah of Idaho is becoming the involuntary center of a third party movement, which is beginning to be marked by the insistence of its demands that Borah step out and lead a political revolt. Letters are pouring into Borahs office from men and women of almost every shade of political ppinion announcing their dissatisfaction with the two old parties and urging Borah to take the lead in uniting the politically restless in the United States under a new organization banner.
