DELEGATES ILL TAKE LEAD IN PROPOSAL TO CUT ARMAMENTS Presentation of Concrete Plan To Reduce Arms Will Be Among First Details of Conference Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, Nov. 3-The policies and program of the American delega tion to the armament conference are beginning to assume definite outline, and if the expectations of official Washington are realized, the opening day will see a sequence of develop ments something like this: Presentation of a concrete Ameri can plan for far-reaching reduction of naval armament. Consideration of such troublesome problems of the Far East as may nat urally project themselves into the pic ture. Meantime an effort by the United States to keep the negotiations in the open so that public opinion may exert its pressure toward practical accom plishment. Salient features of the American naval armaments proposal have been established and although details re main to be fixed there is reason to believe the reductions suggested -vill be sweeping enough to convince tho world that the United States meant business when it called the confer ence. ' It would cause no surprise if lead ing naval powers found it necessary to submit the plan of this government to long study before they determine on their course. Should the reduc tions proposed prove unacceptable it is believed likely that the Amcricm delegates, having once taken the Ini- tiative, would invite the powers to some concrete counter pro- present posal. All evidences surrounding the con ference of the American big four wiih their naval advisers have pointed to inclusion of a set of maximum re duction figures in the plan to be pre sented by this government no offi cial has been willing to reveal details but there has been apparent a desirs to lay bare at the outset of the nego tiations, the full extent to which the United States would be willing to go in limitation of armament. The impression that such a method may not lead to an immediate agree ment has been given color by the ap parent Intention of some of the other powers to pursue an opposite course and enter the conference setting a high figure as the measure of the naval armament they consider requi site to their national safety. Japan has indicated she would suggest the necessity of maintaining a navy equal to any which might enter, her srmere in the Far Last, a proportion which naval experts say is well In ex cess of her present power. Tho naval armament question is considered the first to occupy atten tion at the conferena", but it is not the expectation of officials that the live problem of Far Eastern diplom acy will remain long in tne DacK- - , . . . f round. As he conference Is yewed in prospects it is said diplomatic and armament angles may develop simul taneously so that instead of having a fixed problem on consecutive sub jects the delegates will fall Into the practice of considering this or that problem as occasion may bring it to the front. o- FORMER TIJUANA DEED FOR THEFT OF Sill FUND Republican A.

Nov. 3 The premier had an audience with the king this evening this was not due to devel opments In the Irish negotiations, but followed the customary practice. It is believed however. Mr. Lloyd George reported on the progress of the negotiations. There was not meeting of either the full conference or the committee today and no definite arrangements for the next meeting have been made. Members of the Sinn Fein confirm the announcement that Sir James Craig. Ulster premier is coming here on the- government's invitation to consult with the ministers only but they say that no mere technicalities will be allowed to prevent the Irish delegates from meeting him, should it be so decided. The Ulster question is not merely one of the counties ot Tyrone and Fermanagh, but ot othe separable Nationalist districts under the north ern parliament, in which a plebiscite is being urged by districts. The re sult, according to estimates of au thorities probably would be to south ern Ireland Londonderry, South Down, South Armagh and parts of Tyrone and Fermanagh. The Ulster view is that this would leave the northern parliament with insufficient territory. The alternative suggestion is to give the northern arliament all the nine counties ot Ulster. The northern Ireland cabinet, how ever is unwilling to accept all of Ulster, it appears, asserting that it could count only on an uncertain minority and fearing that one of the first acts of an all-Ulster parliament might be to dissolve itself and join with southern Ireland. o Hungary Premier Presents Bill To Dethrone Charles !

Aside from favorable court action, union officials regarded further strike development as hinging on the action of operators in discontinuing the check off. IVesident John L. Lewis, was advised that the execu tive board of the Pittsburg district would meet tomorrow to act on Dis trict President R. R. Gibbons' deci sion to call a strike Monday. Ap proximately 40,000 miners would be affected, officials said. Elsewhere in coal producing states the miners were said to be awaiyng the decision of operators whether to stop the check off. Doubt as to the Interpretation of the original strike telegram expressed by Frank Farrington, president-of the. Illinois miners, was not removed by Mr. Lewis' answer sent today to the Illinois leader. Farrington. who was anti-administrtaion leader at the miners' convention, accused Lewis of trying to "pass the buck." in calling the strike, and Lewis' reply was that "detailed instructions," would be sent whenever Illinois operators declare their stand of stopping the check ofr. The answer did not disclose the rature of the instructions, but it was said authoritatively that they would include a strike -order. Colorado Not Affected PUEBLO, Colo, Nov. 3. Opinion that the recent injunction issued by Judge A. B. Anderson at Inclianapoli j proscribing the check off cyctem. is without effect outside the state of In diana, was expressed in a te'egram today from John D. Lewis, presider.t of the United Mine Workers of America, to John P. McLennan, pres ident of District 15 of the mine work ers organization. No suggestion is made in the tele gram recommending definite action to be taken by the miners of Colo rado In event operators attempt to abrogate the check off system. The text of the telegram follows: "John P. McLennan, ITesident Unit- - ed Mine Workers District 15: "It is to ba hoped that no attempt will be mad by the coal operators under contract in District 15 to abro gate any part of existing agreements by abandonment of tho check-oi system. It is the opinion of our at torneys and several attorneys for operators that the injunction granted by Judge Anderson is not binding outside Indiana, the limit of his juris diction. Operators of Iowa have an nounced they will not suspend the check off. Oklahoma has taken sim ilar action and several other districts are planning similar announcements. (Signed) "JOHN L. LEWIS." President McLennan estimates that only about 2500 coal miners in the Colorado district are now affected by the check off system. They comprise the men working at mines which aro fully unionized and working under agreements between the union and the mining companies. ORDER OHIO MEN TO WORK COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 3. Ohio miners who have ceased work in pro test against the federal injunction abolishing the check off system were ordered to return to work by the ex ecutive board of District No. 6. Unit ed Mine Workers of America, after a meeting today. Lee Hail, president of the district, was instructed to notify all coal oper ators that compliance with their con tract, whsch includes provision for the check off system of collection of union dues, is expected and that vio lation of it wiil result in a strike. Strikes, should they be called, would not be general, it was said, only against such companies as had discontinued the cheek off. The of ficials took the position, they an nounced, that the injunction was ef fective only within Judge Anderson a distrirf and not throughout the coun try. This conforms with an opinion expressed by miners' officers at In dianapolis. The order for the return to the mines of miners who have gone on "unofficial strikes" will affect be tween 3u00 and 400 men in Ohio. Three thousand or more miners in the Hocking field were reported to have quit work and one mine in the eastern I part ot the state was said to have oeen luie loaay. CLOSE INDIANA MINES INDIANAPOLIS.
