Strieker, the ; bfly of Theodore A. Ryerson jr., an j expert safe worker and salesman, has been disinterred and the visera turn? ed over to chemists fcr analysis to see j if death was caused by poion. Mr. Ryerson died suddenly April 14, wh?n ! apparently in the best of health. His father. Theodore A. Ryerson sr., de? clared in an affidavit in the hands of the prosecutor that in his belief his son came to his death by unnatural CF" - ? ! Disintennent of the body, which had previously been examined last April, was made last Saturday in the presence of the county physician, Dr. J. L. Suy- : dam, the county prosecutor, and three other representatives of the prosecutor's office. Prosecutor Strieker said to-night that unti' analysis had been made, which probably will take two weeks, he would take no action in the case and would make no public statement. Ryerson left an estate va'ued at about $75,000 to his widow. Mrs. Ryerson was in New York to-night and coud not be reached. Th? disinterment last week was the second mad.' sir.cr Mr. Ryerson s death. The first occurred a few days a ; r his death wir n it wa3 learned that he had been buried without either a d'Htn certificate o? burial permit. At this time accordirg to his father, ths coffin wa? oponed.and a diagnosis of death as the result of acute indi? gestion and heart failure made at the graveside. On Sunday, Arr'.l 13, Mr. and Mrs. Ryerson and another couple motored to Newark, returning about 9 o'clock that night. The day previous Mr. Ryer? son had had an attack of indigestion and had seen a doctor in Newark, ob? taining relief. On Sunday night lie seemed in the best o.' health and spirits, and after his return played pool for a while. He and his wife, another couple and two women'teachers rooming at ti.eir home then made about sixty scrambled e^< sandwiche.;, of which Mr. Ryserson ate six or seven. About midnight he became ill. Dead When Physician Arrived -Mrs. Ryerson cailed Dr. Charles Hults, Wi.o lived about a mile away, saying that her husband was ill, but did not, the story ^oes, say the case was urgent. Wher, Dr. Hults arrived he found Mr. Ryerson dead. Ryerson ?r. was informed of the death e r.y i.? xt morninj and the funeral, first arranged for Thursday, was held on the* fallowing Wednesday. Two aspects of the case which no county official would comment upon to? night were the length of time which e apsed between the fi fng of the elder Ryerson's comp.aint on July 1 and the second uis.nu.imem and the buria. of young Ryerson in the first p ace with? out a death certificate or burial permit. Mr. Ryerson was an expert safe worker and salesman for the York Lock and Safe Company, of Maiden Lane, New York, and other larga concerns. In 1910 Mrs. Ile en M Walters, a young widow of Chicago, obtained a verdict of $3,000 against him in a $50 000 suit for breach of premise in the Supreme Court in New York City. His defense was that he feared he would not bo able to maintain his future bride in the circumstances in which she was accustomed to live.

Discov? ery of a "Red" plot to slay officials with explosive Christmas mail puck- ? ??ges was announced this afternoon by, Superintendent of Police James Robin? son. Information of the plot, which he considers reliable, indicates It Is na? tion-wide and directed against Federal, state and city authorities who took part in the roundup of radicals plan? ning the overthrow of the government. Immediate steps were taken to pre? pare Federal investigators, postal au? thorities and police of large cities for action against the "mail terror," which is scheduled to begin operation during the Christmas holidays. A memorandum issued by the bureau of police, announcing discovery of the plot, is as fo'.lows: "Superintendent of Police Robinson is in posse sion of reliable information that ni ?rr.bers of a radical organization with headquarters in principa! cities are preparing to send out. prior and during the Christmas holidays, pack? ages which might be considered gifts to national, state and municipal gov? ernment officials whose duties have re? quired them to tike an activo part in the . uppTcssion of Bulohevik and an? archistic movements.

Egypt Is Granted A Constitution Self'Government for MaU \ ta Also Is Announced as Remedy for Unrest LONDON, Nov. 19 (By The Asso- ; ciated Press).?A constitution for Egypt and local self-government for Malta, both of which were announced to-day, are designed to meet the un? rest in those countries, which have been demanding application to them? selves of the self-determination theory. The extreme Egyptian Nationalists demand complete independence, and Cairo messages say the Cabinet, has re? signed as an answer to. Field Marshal Allenby's statement of the British p ars One of the Egyptian complaints has been that Great Britain has published its intention to maintain n protec? torate, but has kept the Egyptians in the dark regarding what is meant by a protectorate and how it is to be car? ried on. Great Britain's action in pre? venting an Egyptian Nationalist dele? gation from going to the Paris con? ference has been another cause lor complaint. The government's justification be rore charges of neglecting Egypt has been the load of other matters on its hands. The Milner commission, which is to investigate the causes of unrest in Egypt, has not yet started, and the native threaten to refuse to give in? formation. .Malta was in a state of tumult for several weeks in the summer, but there were no casualties.

Need, Must and Will Have" Fuel Operators Talk but Make No Progress Producers Profit 46 Cents a Ton in 1918: Average Paid to Miners $1.50 WASHINGTON. Nov. 19?Prospects of a coal famine drew nearer to-night, with negotiation? between operators and miners apparently at a standstill A subcommittee of the joint wag. scale committees was in session three hours, but it was announced after the meeting that only the general situa? tion was discussed and the operators did not submit counter proposals to the miners' demands. The conference will continue to-morrow. "No progress was made. The opera? tors submitted no proposals. We are still in a receptive mood." said John J. Lewis, acting president of the United Mine Workers, as he came out, of the hotel room where the confer? ence was held. The operators' committee remained in session an hour longer. At the end of that time Thomas T. Brewster, chairman of the operators' committee In the central competitive fi?ld. spoke optimistically, declaring this was the first attempt at real negotiations since the miners and operators met at buf? falo. For that reason he said only general matters were discussed. Hint Received from Garfield The decision of the joint wage scale conference to continue its negotiations through a smaller group, in accordance with the usual custom in making wage agreements, came after the. owners and workers had heard from Fuel Adminis? trator Garfield that as long as the gov? ernment stands "the people of the United States need, must, have, and will have coal, and they will not be prevented by anything the operators and miners may do." The consuming public, the chief party in interest in the present con? troversy, Dr. Ganield said, is not in a mood to tolerate either cxccbsive prices or prolonged stoppage of pro? duction. The sub-committee is composed of two minero and two operators from each of the f?ur states in the central competitive district, together with Mr. Brewsuer an-1 Mr. Lewis. Pinch Felt in Cleveland While the repr?sentatives of the contending industrial factions were mai king time here the city of Cleve? land shuf ijff the coal tuppiy of all in? dustrial plants within its limits except those c assed as public utilities. Retail dealers were instructed no: to seilcoal to ary manufacturing p.ant wit!.out obtaining the consent of the city's coal committee. At the same time virtually all the territory south of the Ohio and Po? tomac rivers and east of the Missis? sippi River was put on 'a war-time coal-rationing basis, limiting pur? chases for home use to a single ton. The situation further was compli? cated by unexpected walkouts of min? ers in West Virginia, where men who had gone back since the strike order was recalled quit again because op? erators insisted that all contracts with the United Mine Workers were can? celed. A second strike was called in Cuioiado af'er a vain attempt at an agreement, and many miners who re? cently returned to the pits have been ordered to cease work to morrow. Hines Nut Discouraged Despite t.ie discoura.ing ivborts, Di? rector General of Raihctacis Hines, w?o has been conferring with regional di? rectors in Chicago, stiil believes the problem is mainiy one of judiciously distributing the coal on hand and avail? able. He author zed a statement assur? ing the public that there wou d be fair warning of any drastic curtai ment, measures. The statement made here to-d?y to the operators and miners by Fuel Ad? ministrator Garfield was largely statis? tical. It brought out. that in 1918 the rverage cost of produc.ion of coul was $2.15 u ton, leaving to the operator an average margin of 46 cents a ton. This margin, he j: id. included interest charges, selling expen-es and Federal taxes as well as profit. "I represent the people of the United States in a different sense from the Secretary of Labor," Dr. Garfield said. "It is part of Mr. Wilson's function to effect conciliation, it is njy sole function'to. exercise those powers con? ferred on the fuel ?administration; to see that an adequate supply of coal is furnished the people of the United States and to see that in times of stress, such as we are still unhappily in the midst of, the prices asked and received for coal are not excessive.

Superintendent of Schools has al? ready rued that ""or a teacher to be a Communist is sufficient ground for his or her dismissal. We obtained the ? names of these fifteen teachers during our recent investigations. We do "ot condemn them in advance, but we have sufficient evidence to warrant calling them in for a hearing." Summary dismissal was ordered by Dr. Ettinaer yesterday in the case of Sonia -C'msoerg 1215 Ferty-first street, Brooklyn, a probationary teacher in Public School No. 170, who admitted she was a member of the Communist party. Dr. Ettinger said Miss Gins? berg's license to teach would be re? volted. Some of the questions put to Miss Ginsberg and her answers were: "Are you a member of the Commun? ist party?" "I am. But when I joined I did not think it stood for the overthrow of the government by force." "Are you satisfied with our form of government?" "I am not. I think it is open to a great many improvements. It is run : in the interest of the capitalistic class. It should be run in the interest of the workers." "Recommended for dismissal," wrote Dr. Ettinger on Miss Ginsberg's pa? pers. The recommendation later was adopted by the Board of Education. Dr. Ettinger, commenting on the case ! said: "Any teacher who is found to pro? fess the same princip'es will be dealt with in the same way, provided he or i she is on probation. Charges will be preferred in cases where teachers have regular licenses and they will be tried | in th> usual w y. "It is a crime for a teacher profess? ing such sentiments to be in charge of innocent chi'dren. It is really an as? sault on the menta it y of children, worse than an actual physical assault."

War-Time Laws Stand as Result Treaty Defeat No Lifting of Prohibition Han Before Next Session Unless President Does It by a Proclamation New York Tribune Washington Bureau WASHINGTON. Nov. 19.?All war? time legislation, passed for the period of the emergency, will stay in effect as a result of the failure of the peace treaty to be ratified, it was said to? night. This includes war-time pro? hibition, which will remain in effect unless the President by proclamation ?hould lift it, which the Attorney Gen? eral has ruled he has no legal right to do. War-time prohibition ?Would be lifted legally by the passage of a resolution by Congress aeciaring the war at an end. such as was introduced to-night by Senator Lodge, just before adjourn? ment, but this cannot be taken up even in committee until December 1, and the Administration would probably make a light against it then, thus hold? ing on the "dry" ?id. Failure of the treaty to be ratified, thus continuing the technical state of war, also continues in effect the" Lever food and fuel control bill, failure of which might prove embarrassing to the government in dealing w:th the coal strike situation. It is under this bill that the power to fix the price of coal is granted the Administration. Another act which will be continued as a resu't of the treaty failure, which is considered of great importance by Senator? in its immediate effects is the espionage act. Acts which expire with the ending of the war are: Fuel and food control act. War Trade Board and export control act. ? Act creating office of Alien Property Custodian, with certain limitations.

The treaty is dcr.d until and unless the President resubmits it to the new session of Congress beginning December 1. Before adjournment a concurrent resolution was introduced by Re? publican Leader Lodge and referred to the Foreign Relation? Committee, declaring that a state of peace exists with Germany. This will be taken up in the next session of Congress. The first vote came on the Lodge resolution of ratification, which was voted down, 55 Senators voting against ratification and 3f* for it. Later, on the same question, the original vote having been recon? sidered, the Senate voted 51 against ratification to 41 in favor. Four Democratic Senators refused to follow President Wilson's advice as expressed in a letter to Administration Leader Hitchcock, and which was read at the Democratic conference parlier in the day. The President advised that the Lodge resolution be defeated. The four who refused to follow his advice were Myers, of Montana; Owen, of Oklahoma; Pomerene, of Ohio, and Smith, of Georgia. Democratic votes with the ! "irreconsilables" beat the treaty. Senator Lodge, after this vote, withhe'd a point of order to permit th< much talked about direct vote to ratify the treaty without any reserva tions whatever. Unconditional Ratification Beaten, 53 to 38 But unconditional ratification, supported by the Administratio* was defeated by a greater vote than the Lodge ratification resolution Not only all of the "irreconcilables," but the entire Republican strength with the single exception of McCumber. voted against it. Offsetting the one defection on the Republican side, the following Democratic Senators voted against unconditional ratification: Gore Reed, Shields, Smith, of Georgia, Thomas, Trammell, and Walsh, of Massa chusetts. The vote was 53 against ratification to 38 for. This vote was obtained by Senator Underwood, who contended that it required a two-thirds vote to dispose of a treaty one way or th-j other Mr. Lodge permitted this vote to be taken, but afterward, when anothei attempt was made to compromise, he made the point of order, and Vice President Marshall said the Senate had already decided this questior. several times, theioby shutting off further resolutions of ratification. As a climax, Mr. Lodge noved_ to reconsider the vote by wh'ch the Underwood motion for unconditional ratification was adopted, and ther moved to lay that on the table, which was done by the same old line-ui of all the Republicans, except McCumber, with a handful of Democrats President May Withdraw Treaty Senator Lodge said the President could, if he wished, withdraw the peace treaty when the Senate reconvenes and could then resubmit it ; The ;?ct of withdrawing it, he said, would be a technical admission tha' j the treaty had been finally disposed of, as the Senate rules provide tha after a treaty has been finally disposed of by the Senate the Presiden! can withdraw it. Otherwise unanimous consent is required in order for i President to withdraw a treaty. Senator Hitchcock, Administration Leader, declared to-night thai j the treaty was not dead. "The President can send it back to the S-'r.ate ! and there is no question that it will be on hand when the Senat? meets again December 1," said he. Senator Hitchcock made a last minute effort to have mild reservation adopted in place of the Lodge reservations, but the Republicans, wit] Senators Gore, Reed and Shields, Democrats, stood solidly against him. Senator Hitchcock moved that ihe treaty be referred to the cone mittee of the whole of the Senate with instructions that it be reporte to the Senate with some of the leservations previously introduced b Hitchcock attache 1 to the resolution of ratification. Republican Leadc I odge demanded a roll call on the motion. The Administration leader | effoit then was defeated, 50 to 41. Previous to Senator Hitchcock's attempt to weaken the reservatioi Senator Pomerene. Democrat, of Ohio, moved that the treaty be refer? 1 to a "committee of conciliation," to be composed of six Senators, indu* ing Senators Lodge and Hitchcock, appointed by President Wilson. Th special committee would "report to the Senate a ?esolution of ratificatk that could be adopted by the Senate.'* Pomerene Conciliation Plan Is Tabled Senator Lodge made a point of order against consideration of tl motion, but while Vice-President Marshall was preparing to rule on t! point of order Senator La Follette of Wisconsin moved to lay the Poi crene motion on the table.

He moved to ad? journ. "Vote it down!" shouted V'r. Lodge to his side, and they did. every Repub? lican down to McCumber voting against - ny interruption of the battle. Three Democrats?Gore, Reed and Shields ? voted with the Republicans against ad? journment. The vote was 51 to 42 Hitchcock Attempts Compromise Mr. Hitchcock then attempted to put in a compromise resolution of ratifica? tion. Mr. Lodge made a point of order, and the second test of strength re? sulted just a-? the first. 51 to 42 against the Administration, with no change in the lines. The vote came on overruling the Vice-President's decision that Mr. Hitchcock's motion could be received. There were cries of "V^te! Vote!" and it was held that the vote, if taken then, would be on the Lodtre resolution itself, which w*uld mean the final death of t^e treaty if it failed to get a two thirds majority. "I will say that Senators on this side are ready to vote," declared Mr. Hitch? cock, "and ready to vote just as they did before." The threat that the Democrats would -g:ee to kill the treaty without chance for re*reat at this session did not seem to disturb the majority. Calls for a vote persisted, but Mr. McCumber attempted to get a vote to reconsider the vote by which the preamble was adopted. Senator Pei.rose made a point of order that Mr. McCumber could not make such a motion, since he had voted against the preamble in the first placa. The romt was sustained. Mr. McCumber did net protest.
