; convened Comptroller Craifc moved that
the budget of |851f548,9l3.34, fixed nt
1 the close of" Saturday's session, aug
i minted by the additions of Monday and

objected to this procedure aid made.?
roint of order that there was nothing
[definite before the body for action.
There was an argument, i;nc;ea by
! some acrimony, between Comptroller
j Craig and Mr. Curran before the Mnvor
! ruled that Mr. Curran's point of o;
j der was poorly taken. Then the Comp?
troller substituted another motion,
: that the board adjourn until to-day at
4 o'clock.
M. E. Connolly. President of the
! Borough (if Queens, objected to this
; and amended it to read that the ad?
journment" be taken until 12:05 this
I morning. That motion was passed
? after F. H. La C?uardia, President of

I During the adjournment, which
j lasted from 11:66 last night until

Truce Fails

return to the mines and leave the basis
of a settlement to a tribunal.
The miners are trying to make a
holiday out of the strike, organizing
coursing races and playing football.
Food Supply Still Adequate
The government's supervision of the
distribution of food supplies is prov?
ing eminently satisfactory, but there
necessarily must be a considerable dis?
arrangement when the train service is
curtailed. The heaviest blow to the
nation is in the matter of production,
for it cannot be denied that a gradual
paralysis is creeping over the indus?
trial areas, especially among the steel
manufacturers. The effect of this shut?
down will soon be felt in the ship?
building industry, particularly at
Clyde, where the tonnage was higher
in September than it had been since
pre-war days.
With one exception the mines are
still manned with pumpers detailed to
see that water tloes not rise above
normal. No violence has been reported
from f;ny section. On the contrary,
the strike is temarkable because of
the orderliness of the workers.
The government has made no at?
tempt to take advantage of a flock of
volunteers, who are anxious to help
break the strike, and no troops have
been moved into the mining districts.
The Whitehall riots of yesterday had
no connection with the coal strike, but j
they served to impress the people with '
the amount of unemployment and the |
temper of those who have been seeking
work in vain.
LONDON, Oct. 19 (By The Asso-!
ciatcd Press). -The Parliamentary de?
bate on the coal strike to-night, al?
though it disappointed hopes of any :
immediate settlement of the dispute,!
nevertheless, owing to its extreme1
moderation and the conciliatory tone '
of the Premier's speech, has left much 1
brighter prospects that a settlement
erelong will be found.
Jhc Premier especially emphasized
that no question of amour propre
would prevent the government from
honestly, fearlessly and sincerely ex?
amining any project promising a set?
tlement, having due regard for the
public interest, and he expressed per?
fect willingness to consider increysed
remuneration for the miners, provided
it meant a larger output.
Temporary Concession Proposed
William Brace, Labor member for
?he Abertillery Division of Monmouth
I .
shire nnd president or the South Wales
Miners' Federation, suggested that the
two shillings the minera demanded!
should be granted temporarily, pending1
the creation of a permanent wsges
board, and the whole matter reviewed
. by the end of the year. He asserted
there was evidence that the miners had
purposely restricted the output t?nd de?
clared that if it was to be a fight to a
finish every man must be withdrawn
from the mines regardless of the dam?
age and lois involved.
James Henry Thomas, of the Na?
tional Union of Railwaymen, support?
ing Mr. Brace's suggestion, aaid it was
I no secret that seventeen days ago a
I special meeting of the railway dele?
gates decided by only one vote not to
strike forthwith, after he had made
the utmost efforts in favor of peace.
After Mr. Brace's spflech, a Cabinet
council was held to consider the situa?
tion. Hence, it was late when Premier
Lloyd George rose to reply. He began
by complimenting the House on the
moderation and absence of bitterness
with which the question had been dis?
cussed. He then referred to Mr.
Brace's suggestion, which he com?
plained was in many respects obscure.
He raid if a settlement was to be
attained it must be on something more
definite, which would not merely post?
pone the dispute to the future but
sow the seeds of further trouble, not
only in tfro mining but in every other
The first untoward incident directly
connected with the coal strike occurred
at Ton-y-pandy, in South Wales, at
midnight last night, when some young
colliers collected and started to sing
"The Red Flag," causing the police to
intervene. Some stone-throwing oc?
curred, but the crowd dispersed upon
appeals by the police, although lai/*
windows in police stations were
The rioting was renewed at midnight
to-night. Windows were stoned and
broken and four policemen were in?
jured. The rioters were dispersed by
the police.

Fire Ties Up Subway Trains
?????? ;
Thousands Temporarily Im?
prisoned in Interboro Tubes
Traffic through the Interborough
tubes was tied up for an hour last
night when fire broke out shortly after
7 o'clock in a brier: structure half way
between the Fourteenth and Eighteenth
Street stations. The blaze, caused by
defective wiring, ignited a quantity of
grease, and a suffocatitrg smoke filled
both east and west tubes for miles.
Unable to locate the difficulty, an
alirm was sent in, and Fire Chief Mar?
tin Callaghy, of the 6th Hattalion, re?
sponded. Reserves from the Hast
Twenty-second Street, station formed
police, lines from Fourteenth to Eigh?
teenth Street on Fourth Avenue, and
traffic on surface lines was suspended.
Meanwhile the firemen opened grat?
ings in Union Square Park and from
these fought the blaze. Thousands of,
persons were imprisoned temporarily :
and scenes of excitement followed. No
injuries were reported. i
U. S. Agents Accused of :
Not Enforcing Dry Law
Prosecutor Angered When Chi?
cago Commissioner Refuses
lo Hold Three Policemen
Special Divalch to The Tribune
CHICAGO, Oct. 19.?After an alter?
cation with Assistant District Attorney
John Kelley, United States Commis?
sioner Lewis F. Mason to-day threw out
of court the cases of three policemen
accused of taking bribes to protect a
saloon man in the saic of whisky.
"The government wants these men
. held as conspirators," Kelley shouted
hotly. "If the government does not
prosecute tiem Chief Garrity won't!
He's had six months to bring charges
and he hasn't done it."
At virtually the same moment Chief
i Garrity was emerging from a confer
| ence with district captains, at which.
i he had said he was going to tear the
? department wide open with bootlegging
charges. He said he had mentioned the
matter to the captains. The chief's
[ personal stenographer, however, was
; present at the hearing in Commis?
sioner Mason's office.
Later Kelley obtained Federal war?
rants for the arrest of two other
policemen on charges of conspiracy to
violate the prohibition law. It is
charged these men took bribes to per?
mit Frank McGovern, a South Side
saloon keeper, to sell whisky.
In Judge Landis's court prohibition
enforcement was the subject of more
discouraging talk. He denounced dry
agents severely for apparent indiffer?
ence and said this monkey business
must stop.
At the close of the morning's hear-!
ings of charges by McGovern, that
! three policemen had shaken him down,
Commissioner Mason announced that
no evidence had been brought out to
?.varrant holding the policemen.
