Says China's Claims Are Selfish. Sen

Another Grave Situation
(Special United Press Wire to The Bulletin,)
Paris, April 29.-Japanese delegates atd tilhe "big
threo" failed to reach an agreennt reglardig terri
torial concessions in China. Japan refused to make any
concessions other than to abandon claim to. Kiao Chau,
insisting on retaining the rich railway and( other (011
cessions in the Shan Tung peninsula and a north port
hilat was not lanile 111i tlhe
The finial decision will not
be made until after the
treaty with Germany has been
It is predicted that the controversy
between Japan and China will reach
a climax today. The Japanese rep
resentatives have decided on a show
down and are insisting on their
rights to the valuable concession:
in the Shan Tung peninsula, which
they say are given them by terms of
a secret treaty with Great Britain.
It is.now thought that President
Wilson will take the same position
in this matter as he did on the Ital
ian question. It is generally acceptcd
that the president's statement last
week concerning the Italian claims
is intended to apply to all nations
who attempt to exceed the terms ol
Japanese Demand Shan Tung.
The Japanese representatives meet
ing President Wilson prior to con
ference are reported to have laid all
cards on the table and demanded that
they be given Shan Tung. Because of
the secret treaty with England, the
Japanese believe that Britain must
sulpport their claims, if she wishes
to redeem her pledges.
The .lapanese say that China's
claims to Shan T'ung are selfish and
untenable; they declare that China
was willing for Germany to retain
possession of Kiao Chau and that
the fact that Shan Tung was taken
during the war does not invalidate
the Japanese claim.
The sentiment in Paris is that
President Wilson is facing another
grave situation and it is believed that
he will have to make another mo
mentous decision in the next few
days, as he refuses to recognize
seolet. treaties unless they are based
on right and justice.
Fiume, April 28.-National coun
cil has sent a telegram to Wilson
notifying him that Fiume had form
ally declared itself united with Italy.
The message said:
"The population of Fiume, assem
bled under Italian law, in presence
of representatives of the glorious
Ame.rican army, replied to your
proclamation by conferring full
power over the city upon the repre
sentatives of the Italian government.
In the name of our dead on the Piave
and the Isonzo, we express to you
our greatest gratitude for provoking
with your attitude the highest, most
solemn manifestation in favor of
Italian sentiment which this city
could make before the whole world.
We inform you that Fiume's union
with Italy is an accomplished fact."

the peace treaty have been an
nounced by the state department.
The clauses declare that the wage
earners' well being supreme, and of
national importance, and declare for
right of organization by labor, eight
hour day and equal pay for women
and men. Among other reforms for
which labor has fought.

D)enver, April 29.-Walter Hiner,
director .e.neral of the railroads, an
nlunced tlhar he was willing to re
sutue11 (',nferenles on prices with the
industrial board at a definite date in
lan eiforl to inaugurate a general
Buitle Miining company and
all men employed under
P1'Oull1d oil the company's
prI(l' ti 's at the Speculator
and (ranite Mountain shafts and at
thei Sarsfield tunnel today were giv
en thi be nefit of the bonus system.
According to Manager Norman Bral
ey. the bonus arrangement of the
North Butte company as at present
conosittlled afflects only those men
'lloyed utnderground: the ar
irangllllent, however, he said, will be
'st ended wvilhin the next few months
until every enmploye of the company
in whatever capacity employed will
re'ceive its benefits. Approximately
two-thirds of the company's em
ployves are underground workers.
Empnloyes Get Surprise.
Today being pay day for the week
enlldinig last \Wednesday, many em
iployes of the company who drew
their wages today were given the
agreenble surprise of finding more
moiney in their envelopes than they
had expected. No announcement of
th.le adoption of the bonus system was
madei until yesterday, following a
conference between Manager Braley,
Sucperintendent Lester Frink and
P'rcsident Robert Linton of the com
pany, who had arrived from New
"Tl'he adoption of the bonus system
by the North Butte company," said
BManage'r Braley today, "marks, in
my ol)inion, a long step forward to
ward giving satisfaction to 'the men
employed by the company. Under
this systeml all the miners and other
nlll rIgrlound milploycs that it affects
are sure of their weekly wages based
ion the scale for an average day's
work, atnd in addition, where they do
better are paid extra for it.
"The adoption of the system was
wholly voluntary on the part of the
companlly, and is a surprise to the
greater majority of the employes, al
though the plan has been under con
sidcration by the company for
monthls. Tlhe bonus is being paid to
day on work done last week."
It was learned that for months
past officials of the company had
been minaking investigations of the
amount of given work accomplished
in various operations in the mine in
one shift. T'he same work under
varying conditions was investigated
and an average for the mine set. This
average constitutes what the com
Ipany officials estimate as an aver
age day's work. All employes who
do more than the average are given
credit for such extra work and are
paid bonuses accordingly.
Another new departure introduced
by the North Butte company recent
ly is the abolition of favoritism oe
seniority in making appointments of
shift bosses. Under the direction
