I DESK TO KELP IT E John Hammond, Returning From the Orient, Says Island Kingdom Would Stop Wars. Honolulu, Oct. 20.—John Hammond, mining engineer, arrived from Japan Thursday suffering from an attack of ptomaine poisoning contracted during n three months' tour of Japan. Mr. Hammond's condition is not. serious, although he is confined to his state room. Ile will continue his journey to the mainland Friday. That the business inen and finan ciers of Japan are sincere in their expressed desire to maintain peace in the Pacific, was the opinion expressed by the American mining expert. He pointed out as an argument in sup port of this conclusion that the United States buys four times the amount of goods from Japan purchased by the remainder of the world. "The military element in Japan still must be considered," Mr. Hammond paid, "but the Japanese people are amenable to reason, especially owing to ihe achievements of the United States -in the world war. Also the pacifist element throughout the coun try is strong. "The principal complaint in Japan is on the score of taxation. The fi nanciers realize that war with the United States would be costly, par ticularly in view of Japan's adverse trade balance and the difficulty she would face in obatining credit abroad. The militarists know that Japan is safe from invasion and they also realize that the United States is similarly immune." Mining Congress Discusses Question of State Taxation Chicago, Oct. 20.—State taxation of mining properties was a subject of es pecial consideration Wednesday at the national mine tax conference being held here in conjunction with the 24th annual convention of the American Mining congress. McKinley AV. Kreigh, chief of the tax division of the American Mining congress, in defining the purposes of the conference, declared that the "greatest waste in the mining indus try today is that resulting from the to tal loss of enormous tonnages of ores which could lie mined at a profit if it were not for high taxes." Increased taxes in many states, in stead of augmenting state revenues, actuilly reduced the volume of taxable proMTty, make valueless rock of an enomious tonnage of ore and destroy vast present and potential sources of revenue." " Bloodless Surgery" of Face Described by Scientific Paper Philadelphia. Oct. 20—Use-of "Wood less surgery'' on the face was described in papers read Wednesday before the convention of the American Academy of Ophthamology and Otolaryngology. Radium needles are among the instru ments used in this work, as explained by Dr. E. K. Hecke and Dr. William R. Clark of Pittsburgh. With them, according to the doctors, birth marks, tumors and other malignant growths may lie made to disappear. It was said the advantages of this method over knife surgery were that the growths seldom reappeared. Plastic surgery on the face by which new eyelids are grafted and even rib bones inserted in the face to build it up, was discussed. I)r. Walter H. Ii. Parker, Detroit, was elected president. Minneapolis was chosen as the next convention city. Indiana Mine Operators Will Seek Wage Cuts Terre Haute. Ind.. Oct. 20. — The first authoritative statement that mine operators wiil declare for a reduction in pay for mining coal when the new scale is negotiated in 1022 was made Wednesday by Phil H.

' "There's a Reason" for Postum Sold by all grocers Miner's Union Has Lost Public Confidence Says Official of Coal Company Chicago» Oct. 20.—A high wag« scale on paper with no work will not help the miner, but « fair wage scale with regular work will build his yearly earnings to a basis of American living and allow the coal operator to offer cheap fuel to the consumer and reduce the producing cost of all commodities, Harry N. Taylor of Kansas City, vice president of the Central Coal and Coke company, told delegates to the American Mining congress here Thursday. Asserting that he personally had the h ghest regard for labor unions "fairly conducted," Mr. Taylor said the unions had an op portunity to play a leading part in the national readjustment and urged that they take advantage of it. "If, however," he said, "the miners continue their efforts to make a readjustment of an abnor mal wage scale and on April I call a nation-wide strike, the operators must assume ?. public duty of standing for the public rights, and the thinking men . of this country must stand behind them in the hpttle for the good of American industry and American freedom against a labor autoc racy." Mr. Taylor declared that he had learned from observation that the labor unions had done much for the wage earner and had, in many instances, brought him comfort and contentment ttyat otherwise could not have been produced. "But the miners' organization must be purged," he said, "of the rad cal and revolutionary leader ship that has sprung up in many districts before it can hope to re gain its standing in public es teem. Many of the leaders, in their greed for power, have be come more and more unreasonable until they are making it impos sible for many mines to operate. Perhaps only when they have WILE HELPJOBLESS Peace and Good Understanding Among Powers Is Vital Declares Lloyd George. London. Oct. 20.—Following closely upon the British government's an nounced determination to aid in solving the unemployment situation by the ex tension of extraordinarily large credits and the declaration that no Briton is to starve. David Lloyd George, the prime minister, delivered a notable ad dress in parliament outlining the gov ernment's policy both with regard to trade and unemployment. The premier declared that the entire situation was the result of the world war and that a good understanding between nations, together with trade rehabilitation, was the essential remedy for a cure. In outlining the government's pro posal to alleviate unemployment, Mr. Lloyd George made the following dec laration: "Peace and a good understanding among nations is vital. Let us get out of the atmosphere where if you talk about a German without a frown on your brow you are no patriot. Trade cannot start in such an atmosphere. If you intervene to make peace, your mo tives are misunderstood: but if Great Britain will not do it. who will? We stand for stability. We want to see the nations begin again the tasks of peace." The entire speech was a plea that the country is suffering from the results of the war, and a declaration that restoration rests upon the revival of industry and the rehabilitation of the purchasing power abroad, and that a revival in trade depends largely upon the bringing about of a good under standing among nations. BILL PROHIBITS LYNCHING Washington, Oct. 20.—The Byerand lynching bill, imposing heavy penalties on persons involved in mob action re sulting in the taking of life, was or dered favorably reported by Ihe house judiciary committee Thursday. driven the mining industry to the open shop will they learn that through their greed they have lost all that the conservative leaders of former years had gained for them." Support of his bill, pending in the senate for creation of a new executive department of the na tional government to be known as the department of mines and pre sided over by a member of the cabinet, the secretary of mines, was urged by United States Sen ator Samuel D. Nicholson of Colo rado, in an address .before the American Mining congress. Senator Nicholson reviewed the confusion which arose in Wash ington during the war when, he said, "it became necessary to create new bureaus in order to stimulate production of the mines, the output of which was essen tial to the prosecution of the war." "Because of the raoid growth of the mining industry and the position of increasing importance that it has and will continue to assume for the nation as a whole, there should be no question but that it is entitled to cabinet rep resentation," Senator Nicholson said. "It should now be apparent that, notwithstanding the abund ance of our agricultural yield, we have over five million men whose unemployment largely resu.'iis from the depressed condition of the mining industry. Many con structive laws have been enacted for tho benefit of the agricul tural industry and I contend that the welfare of the mining indus try is as fundamentally important to the general welfare and pros perity of the nation as the agri cultural industry, and that con sideration should now be given the request of that industry for a department of mines with cabinet representation." IE T0ST1RT0PHI Fifty-four Yards Will Come Under Control of Agricul tural Department, Nov. 1. Washington.

Drug Habit Growing at Alarming Rate Says Sarah Mulhall Philadelphia, Oct. 20. ; —Sarah Gra ham Mulhall, former deputy commis sioner of the narcotic control board of New York, told the American Humane society here that conditions resulting from drug addiction in the United States were "appalling" and that the habit was spreading "alarmingly" among public and private school children.
