President Purdy said that In view of the declarations of Premier Lloyd George and President Wilson, Germany could claim no longer that she was fighting a defensive war.-------- . ... . r "We see no signs yet,1' he added, "that Germany and her allies are willing to accept .Jhe princi- \ pies enunciated and Mr. Wilson party."

The conference is larger in point ot membership than its predecessors. It Is attended by 800 delegates representing nearly 2,500,000 members ot| trades unions.

The action was taken'on the recommendation of A. H. Smith, assistant director general in charge of transportation in the east. No reference was made to the recommendation for an embargo submitted last night by Fuel Administrator Garfield. The embargo is temporary and is expected to last only a few days. At the end of the five day restriction period no official could say today just what were the effects of the industrial shutdown, except that it had got coal to., seaboard for ships. Homes in many parts of the country still were without fuel, although at the fuel administration it was said that complaints of lack of fuel for household needs were fewer than they had been for wejeks. Railroad congestidn has not been much relieved, but It was impossible to say whether the cloying order helped or not". Bad weather nullified much: qf the good effects the^ general closing might have had in clearing the railways and there was a wide difference of opinion as to whether the shutdown woulf have assisted materially in moving freight even if tho weather had been good.
