Omotokyo, which popularly Is supposed
to preach Socialistic and even anarchistic
igeas under the cloak of loyalty to
the imperial house, is cited as dangerous
to society and alarming to the military
authorities because It is affecting many
officers and men of the army, especially
the reservists. The opposition politicians
claim that, despite the fact that
it is fortified by a majority In the House
of Representatives, the Hara Cabinet Is
unpopular because of Internal conditions,
including uneasiness concerning the economic
and financial situation and high
prices growing out of unemployment.

Government receipts for the month
totalled $911,000,000, while expenditures
fell below $500,000,000. Ttiis difference,
which was larger than usual,
was explained as due to a decline In the

Officials said, however, that the same
ratio between receipts and expenditures
probably would not be maintained
next month. They expect the railroads
to come In for larger sums, as they will
have tnade a final accounting of profits

their earnings were guaranteed by the
railroad law. As soon as this accounting
has been made the Interstate Commerce
Commission will pass on the

Winnipeg, Oct. ?Western Canada's
great soft coal mining district, located
in southern Alberta and eastern British

Experienced miners In this district
now earn between $12 and $15 a day
and common labor $7.50 a day. They
I demand an increase of $1.50 a day.
Back of this demand is the organization
of the United Mine Workers of America,
which is fighting for supremacy in this
The Canadian Minister of Labor has
been in the coal mining field for a week
trying to avert a strike, but to-day
mine owners were pessimistic and declared
the Minister of Labor had been
able to do nothing save to promise protection
by the police and military if
they will undertake to operate the mines
in the face of a strike. However, the
mine operators declare they must grant
the demands of the men in so far as
wage increase is concerned or play into
the hands of the leaders of the United
Mine Workers of America, which, in
j addition to the wage increases, seeks
| recognition and abolition of what is
I known as the check off system.
I The local union confines its demands
1 to the wage increase.
A strike has been called for next
Monday, and mine owners say they must
grant this increase to members of the
lccal union of miners In order to
strengthen it in its fight against the
United Srfine Workers of America, which
is greatly feared by the operators.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER; 3,
GERMANY SEEKING I
TO SAVE INDEMNITY i
Continued from First Pag<.
)?n use that the United States, Engand
and Franco are assured of having.
Herr Hue avers that England has attained
8* per cent, of her peace time
;oal production and France 90 per cent.,
shile Germany has only 67 per cent.
He ohurges that France is not using all
aer coal but la accumulating It, and
this has a depressing e/fect on German
labor, which under the Spa agreement
s forced to work for France In prefersnce
to working for Germany.
Typical German Complaint.
The following quotation from the
Bourse Gazette Is typical of the complaints
heard In many quarters here:
"The fact that until now Germany
tins fulfilled the Spa agreement seems
to have created the Impression that her
:oal losses, after all, will not affect
German Industry. Obviously this Is an
Illusion, as Is shown by reports from
the Ruhr region Itself, the heart of the
:oal fields of Germany, where the shortige
of coal is making Itself felt.
"A largo plant there manufacturing
brass, bronze, copper and mining and
shipbuilding supplies purposes to close
down Its foundry and mechanical department.
A factory making agricultural
Implements has already stopped production
and limited Itself to repair work
because In August It could not obtain a
single ton of coal.
"River boats are hardly being operated,
most of them being Idle, their
[ rows discharged. The only plant In the
r-ntlre Ruhr region making mineral oils
for railroads and mines will be closed
down soon. One of Germany's largest
steel plants has extinguished the fires In
rleven of Its nineteen blust furnaces. As
the production of Iron decreases there is 1
a decrease in the amount of resulting 1
slag, which Is so desperately needed by t
German farmers for fertilizer. c
"Besides the furnaces mentioned, sev- c
cral sheet iron plants, rolling mills and f
foundries had to close down, while the f
suspension of one steel mill reduced the i
monthly output of ship plates by 2,600 f
tons. One iron ore works consuming 1
4,000 tons of coal a month received less t
than one-flfth of this tonnage in August. <

The Spa agreement, however, constl.uted
a concession to Germany, but the
Sermans, anticipating the Geneva meetng,
despair of any comprehensive, oon rgtc
results being achieved there. Howver,
even If the result were "tantanount
to bankruptcy" for Germany It
vould not save German Industry quickly
>r place German finances on a healthy
The peace treaty Is not to blame for
:he colossal deficit In the German
judget, which represents chiefly the cost
>f the war. Of the 57,000,000,000 marks
ihort this year the Versailles treaty was
esponalble for aDout zt>,uuu,uuu,uuu
narks. Of the 132,000,000^000 mark^
n Indemnifications to Germans (not Including
the reparation figures to bo set
i Geneva), the Indemnification delverles
under the peace treaty made up
>nly a small shace. Ninety billion marks
50 to repay Germans for property confiscated
In enemy countries during the
var. Such Items are beyond the scope
>f the Geneva meeting.
Thus the Germans see they are within
1 vortex of forces which lie beyond their
control. They cannot balance their
jooks because Ffance and England can:iot
balance theirs. The start towards
reform, If there Is to be reform, must be
uade in America, they say.
Prominent German officials declare it
s their personal opinion that the only
mlvatlon lies In the United States cancelling
the British and French loans,
rhese officials grant that this Is a
Irastlc method .and they do not pretend
lhat It will be resorted to, but once the
[.Tnlted States makes up her mind to lose
:hls war Investment the endless chain of
>enury In Europe will, they declare, be
jroken. Unless It Is broken these men
lo not see any real reconstruction In
Europe or lasting peace for America.
