DENIES ANY AFFRONT
Howell Government Has
Been Very Courteous in Tut-
Ankh-Amen Case.
?:jr in? Associated Press.
* CAIRO. Egypt. April 2.—The Anier
-5 -an minister to Egypt, J. Morton
Howell, in the course of an interview
declared he had l»een advised that
;■ dispatch had been sent to the
.American press to the effect that the
American minister had sustained an
affront at the hands of the Egyptian
government while engaged in an ef
•ort to settle the dispute over the
tomb of Tut-ankh-Amen.
T wish to say that the United
' htatos government is in nowise era
‘"roiled with the Egyptian govern
ment, either with respect to the tomb
dispute or any other matter," said
the minister, "and there has been no
iffront in the case. I used my good
dices in an unofficial way to assist
Prof. Breasted (Chicago University)
and other parties interested in
science here in an edveavor to ar
. rung" an amicable settlement of the
dispute, and if some of those inter
ested in the settlement of this con- ‘
troversy bad been more discreet in !
their language and in their altitude,
toward the Egyptian government. ;
matters would have been rendered
mueh less arduous for those of us
t hto are leading our best efforts to
, effect a compromise .
"I wish to express appreciation of i
the courteous treatment accorded me
by the Egyptian government, an ex-!
pression in which J am sure Prof. |
Breasted heartily concurs.”

j by the Associated Press.
Kansas CITY. April 2.—Forty
j thousand coal miners in Missouri,
Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas are
idle today as a result of the failure
1 of representatives of the Southwest
■ ern Interstate Operators’ Association
land miners to reach an agreement
on a new wage scale before their con
! 1 fcrence here ended last night.
) The operators demanded a lower
I wage scale, while the miners asked
1 a threo-yera contract, which caused a
| deadlock in the conference shortly
: after it began last Thursday. Uou
' Terence representatives of the miners
! placed responsibility for the cessation
I of work upon the operators for their
j refusal to permit the miners to con
j tinuo work under the 1923 wage con
! tract, pending arbitration,
j Without a new contract the miners,
I tinder the union constitution, are pro
hibited from continuing work. How
j ever, they are permitted to work for
: independent operators who agree to
j the three-year contract plan.
