Slay we not hope that America's altruism has made manifest to all peoples our unselfish de- sire that liberty, Justice, and will prevail throughout the world? AVhnt (he GlHh Fought For. \This city Is particularly proud of the record of Its eons In the war, but to you we take a special pride In mention- ing tho Irish regiment, dear to the hearts of us all, the glorious old Sixty-nint- h. The regiment was In the thick ot the fighting on the Lorraine .front, In the Champagne, at Chateau-Thierr- St. Mhlel, tho Argonne and tho River Ourcq. Hundreds ot Us gallant- - members freely effered their lives on the altar of patri- otism, loyally defending the flag of the CiQverninent under which they lived. We know that these brave soldiers who fought tho battles for Great Britain, France, Italy, America and all the Allies were sustained by tho conviction that when peace came It would be a perma- nent peace because founded on Justice.\ \The slgnincance of tho reception ex- tended to me by tho official head of this great city will bo thoroughly understood by tho people of Ireland, for whom It Is Intended,\ President de Valera replied. \I thank you,. Mf. Mayor, nnd the Board of Aldermen and the people of this city for the welcome given me. The welcome I was given here when I first .arrived was, I feel sure, In a large meas- ure responsible for the success of the cause of the Irish Republlo In thla coun- try. \fng IJve the United States and long live New York her greatest city.\ RED FREED AS AN AMERICAN.

Workers Snld to A will t lleturn to Private Ownership. Washington, Jan. ,VT, Railroad Ad- ministration officials Indicated their be- lief y that wage demands ot tSt rallwav brotherhoods nnd shopmen probably would remain quiescent until Ihn termination of Federal control. A canvass of tho general situation was said to show a sentiment among the union membership to await tho return of the roads to their owners before submitting demands for revision of the wage contracts. It was said that none of the wage questions would be pressed upon tho Railroad Administration Immediately, although somo may yet get beforo the wago boards. MSB AND OSHOHN Sl'JSAK .ProgTiuuIno Advocated In- cludes Supervision by Government. The National Republican Club launched yesterday an nttuck op the Admlnlstra-tlo- n for the shortcomings of tho Federal rnllrond control and advanced n pro- gramme for tho restoration of roads to prlvato owners. Tho chlof points of the plan wnro theso: Continued general supervision of the roads by the Federal Government. Division of the powern of tho Inter- state Commerce Commission Into admin- istrative and Judicial. llnactmcnt of legislation fixing a fair and reasonable scale of wages for the railroad employees, Legislation to provide that no lockout or Htrlko shall take place In the trans- portation ecrvlco until after an Investi- gation of grlcancea by an Impartial com- mittee and the reporto f tho committee has been published. Tho report discusses tho probability nf mnnv rnnflti hnlnfr rntllrnfil tfl nrlvatC control In an Impoverished condition, and states that Congress should maku such terms as would provide a reason- able return upon tho Investment, and further guarantee an agreed return upon railroad securities. I.ee Attacks U. S. MniinBciiicnt. Beforo the adpptlon of the report the railroad situation was gono at with cudgels by Ivy L. Lee of the Association of Railroad Executives, William Church Osborn, chairman of tho cxecutlvo board of tho Texas & Pacific Railroad, and Jacob Gould Bchurman of Cornell Uni- versity, Mr. Leo said tho roads were \decaying\ and that there was no plainer Instance of tho Government's In efficient management than the statement which hc quoted from a recent Rail- road Administration report that I15, 000,000 had been cut from tho salaries of railroad executives, and $1,000,000,000 added to the payroll by salary Increases grunted to tho workers. Mr. Leo said the need for railroad elllciency was never so great, and that the need for expansion Is compelling. Of the 300,000 miles of, trackage In tho country only 30,000 miles aro double tracked. \I think this Indicates clearly the underdeveloped condition ot the railroad system,\ said Mr. Lee. \Some of our big executives arc going Into the mov- ing plcturo business rather than remain connected with such mismanagement. Tho Government should not delay If It expects tho roads to return to their former position In handing them back to private owners. The only way they can como bacli then will bo by the Issuance of securities' to heep the system running. Congress must grant authority for that Issue.\ Mr. Osborn eald It was hopeless for tho railroad men ot y of' to expect tho system of individualism In the mitnagement of railroads to be reinstalled. It was this spirit which built tho roads and made them great, he said. From tho experiences of Fed- - oral railroad operation Mr. Osborn said it was Imurobablo that men of foresight and leadership like those who marked tho old school could be developed under such a system. Tho old days of profit making In railroads have passed, the sneaker said. In their place uro tho days of railroad expansion for public bcnoflt. Mr. Hchurman's appeal was for a method of devising an appeal to new blood and new capital to restore the' railroads to their former standards. Kntlru Problem Reviewed. Tho commltteo recommendations for railroad legislation were accompanied by a review of tho entire railroad problem In which It was emphasised that It was tho tendency of tho Interstate Cora- - merco Commission to respond more readily to demands extended In behalf of railroad employees than to tho claims of tho owners of railways for a fair re turn on their investment. Tlio point of the Government's weak- - ness in yielding so completely to the demands of tho workers was pressed homo with this statement: 'The Government has encouraged the expectation on the part of organized groups that by a sufficiently aggressive action wages could be raised without re- gard to Injury or to tho service or to tho rights of tho public. With this situ- ation those who operate tho railroads after their return to their owners will bo confronted. 'Tho Government has no right to leave this matter to be settled by tho processes of Industrial war between the railroad owners and tho railroad em- ployees, a process In which the cost falls In tho long run mainly upon the unorganized public. Thero should be enacted by Congrats such legislation as will secure fair treatment to the em- ployees of tho railroad system, but which will make clear also the tact that tho railroad employees no less than the railroad managers and superintendents servo tho public, and that neither of ficers nor employees aro nt liberty to combine, and by a practical stoppage of railway traffic bring down upon the great body of the people suffering and loss. In tho last year railway strikes have beeu used with recklessness and Injus- tice. Thesfl strikes have arisen at times from real grievances, at times liora fan- cied grievances and at times In part from tne exigencies of tlio politics of tho unions themselves. No matter what the grievance, whether Just or fancied, the public has a- - right to demand that the Government snail lay down some form of procedure under whtch the railroads shall bo conducted without making tho public a victim of every dlspu( which may anso in tne railway service\ EXHIBITIONS fcf SALES AT THE ANDERSON GALLERIES PARK AVENUE & 59 STREET, NEW YORK j EXHIBITIONS 6PEN WEEK-PAY- S 9-- SUNDAYS pTmT AN IMPORTANT AND BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION JAPANESE COLOR PRINTS INCLUDING MANY EXTRAORDINARY PRINTS FROM AN OLD SAMURAI FAMILY IN TOKIO BROUGHT TOGETHER BY THE WELL-KNOW- CONNOISSEUR ' BUNKIO MATSUKI , Tob sold Monday and Tuesday evenings, January 19 and 10, at 8:15.
