states which have large bituminous i
deposits will be expected to mine their I
own coal instead of obtaining it from I
other fields under the emergency order. t
N ILLINOIS the prospects for end- c
Ing the mine strike were slightly
brighter. President Farrington of the t
Illinois miners, always an advocate of t
separate state agreements, came to the
conclusion that the time for putting
that policy into action had come and
called a convention of delegates of
every local union in the state to meet
in Peoria August 3 to consider peace
proposals of the operators. Next day
he rescinded the call because of "pre.
mature" publicity. Acting Governor
Sterling asked Farrington to consider
the proposal that the miners of Illinois
return to work at once at the wage
scale and under the working condi
tions existing when operations ceased
April 1 last, pending a readjustment
of the same by an agreed tribunal,
and that representatives of the miners
and operators of Illinois should meet
and endeavor to arrive at a settlement.
Farrington replied that this plan was
Orders for immense quantities of
coal have been placed in England by
Americans but not all of them are be
ing accepted because of market condi
tions there. Prices of coal and ship
ping and freight rates have advanced
sharply in Great Britain. The British
miners may refuse to mine coal for
America, and American dock workers
may refuse to handle it it it comes.
O NT . Cleve Dean, chairman of
the railway employees' publicity
association, sent to President Harding
ai telegram biltterly attacking the sup)

Stoward the two great strikes. lie saId:
"F"or you or any governor to attempt

milItary forces or to attempt to draft
men into minIng or railroad service
Iwouild be an attempt to estabilish in
1voluntary servitude," andl he predicted
such an attemplt wouldl bring on the
"long predictedl war between campital
Sand labor." lie assertedl, also, that
the Republican party was hostile to
the American farmer and labor and(
that "the hard times that now exist is
a m premeditated planr to bring the farm
er and labor down to their knees."
Mr. HardIng's rpyto this ubrt
while dignifiedl, was a scathing rebuke
of Dean's "political partisan refer
ences" and of his false assumptions.
The President explained at length the
attitude of the government and as
sorted its intention to speak and act,
not for any one class alone, but for
j"thme American people as a whole and
tihe common good of all Its citizenship."
lHe madle it clear that while the right
to strike was recognized, the govern
me'nt wouldI fully protect those who
de(slred to work. The latter, he saId,

work accomplished by the ladies than
by affording them the opportunity of
meeting and greeting the most distin
