RE VES Imtermatlonal News Serviee. LONDON, April 12--The final decisiou of peace or war was again thrown upon the shouldirs of the miners by Premier Lloyd George this afternoon. After separate conferences with the miners and mine owners, the Premier submitted to ahe miners' federation a proposed basis of set tlement. Upon its acceptance or refusal depends the question whe ther the triple alliance will call Its threatened strike at midnig. UXPEOY ODURI's RUFUSAL. Since the premier's proposition is at wide variance with the miners' de mands., its refusal is looked for. The government and the mine owners flat ly reject the miners' moot insistent condition, that of gRooling the min owners' war profita. It soon became apparent that the miners would oppose the new basis to the last and that It had done nothing more than create a new deadlock. Negotiations, however, are continuing and the door to peace remains open. Frank Hodges, miners' leader, this morning formally reiterated the federation's request that the trp.e alliance cail a strike, but It is net known whether the Premier's new offer affects this attitude. A member of the miners' executive body, after reading the Premier's of fer, said that the miners are im movable in their demand for a na tional wage scale and the pooling of war pronits. NINE OWNERS' BlAsKS. Here is the mine owners' basis, backed by the government, as sub mnitted to the miners at 1 o'clock this afternoont with the expiration of the triple alliance strike ultimatum eleven hours off: 1-Firm refusal of the miners' demand for the pooling of Jthe mine owners' war profits. 2-Refusal of the demand for the establishment of a national wage scale. Instead, it is offered to di vide the country Into large dis tricts, inclusive of good and bad mines, with boards of revision to readjust wages on a district, not national. basis. 3-Assistance by the govern. ment's treaty until August of cer tain unprofitable mines, which otherwise would be forced to close. aMm U-w.a p..re-. aod ..r..fla SEEK WATFl FAIR MEER Trastion Hads Say Pgpoo and W., R. & LMWte Combnt ed as Fr Sep.

BLOW ates Can ys Presi Here Presi First Messag The full text of Presiden session of the new Congress In sentatives today is as follows: Members of the Congress: -Tou have beei called in extraorl! nary session to give your considera tion to national problems far to pressing to be long neglected. %74 face our tasks of legislation and ad ministration amid conditions as dif feult as our Government- has evei Contemplated. Under our politica system the people of the United States have charged the new Congress vai the new administration with the so lotion-the readjustmetkts, recosrstrue tion. and restoration which must fol, low In the wake of war. It may be regretted that we were so illr prepared for war's aftermath so little made ready to return to the ways of peace, but we are not to be discouraged. Indeed, we must be th< more firmly resolved to undertake out work with high hope, and invite every factor in our citisonship to join is the effort to And our normal. onw.ird way again.

Ins at home toan to- restrict our na tional expenditures within the limits of our national income, and at ti.e same time measurably lift the bur. dons of war taxation from the shoul ders of the American people. One can not be unmindful that ecen amy is a much-employed cry, most frequently stressed in pre-gletcien at peals, but it is ours to make it an outstanding and ever-impelling par. pesa in both legislation and adminmi tration. The Unrestrained tendency to heedless expenditure and the at. tending growth of public indebted. ness, extending from Federal author. ity to that of State and municipality and Including the smallest political subdivision, constitute the most de.n gerous phase of government today. The nation can not restrain excest In its own activities, but it can be axemplar in a wholesome reversal. The staggering load of war debt Iunst be cared for in orderly funding Lnd gradual liquidation. We shall tasten the solution and aid effectively n lifting the tax burdens if we striki res. 'utely at expenditure. It Is far more easily said than done. In the fever of war our expenditures were so little questioned, the emer gency was so impelling. appropria ion was so unimpeded that we little toted millions and counted the rreasury inexhaudtible. It will *trengthen our resolution if we ever ceep in mind that a continuation of such a course means inevitable dis Later. Our current expenditures are run sing at the rate of approximately lye billions a year, and the bdrden a unbearable. There are two agencies o be employed in correction: One is Igid resistence in appropriation and he other is the utmost economy in administratlon. Let us have both. I iave already charged department eads with this necessity. I am r~ure !ongress will agree; and both Con fress and the Administration may safely count oni the support of all ight-minded citizens, because the surden is theirs. The pressure for *xpenditure, swellIng the flow in one ocality while draining another, is sure to defeat the imposition of just surdens, and the effect of our citizen hip protesting outlay will be witote some and helpful. I wish it mterht ind its reflex in economy and thrift mgong the people themselves, be ause therein lies quicker recovery and added security for the future. TE EVENVUE NUCESSARY. The estimates of receipts and ex senditures and the statements as to he condition of the Treasury which he Secretary of the Treasury is pre ared to present to you will indicate Irhat tevenues must be provided in rder to carry on the GIovernm ant's susiness andt meet its current re iuirements and fixed-debt charges.

A prompt an( thoroughgoing revision of the inter.

It is earnestly hoped. there fore. that the Congress will be abl4 tW enact without delay a revision o the revenue laws and such emer, gency tariff measures as are neces sery to protect American trade ni industry. It is of less concern whether in. ternal taxation or tariff revision shall come frst than has been popularI imagined, because we must do both, Dut the. practical course for earliesi accomplishment will readily suggesi itseif to the Congress. We are com mntted to the repeal of the excess profits tax and the abolition of in equities and unjustifiable exaspera tions In the present system. The country does net expect and will not approve a shifting of bur dens. It is more interested in wipias out the necessity for imposing. them and eliminating confusion and coal in the couieeion. 36 RAW 1U11 1. b r peoplet t Is for the emergency only. can tol be tWe much emphasised. I believe in the protection of American in destry, and it is our purpose to pros per America first. The privileges of the American market to the fore!gn rroducer are offered too cheaply to. day. and the effect on much of out own productivity Is the deqtructiom C* our self-reliance, which is the foundation of the independence and good fortune of our people. More. over. imports should pay their falt share of our cos't of government.

Today Amnericasm ariclture is menaced, and its prod ucts are down to prewar normals, yet we are endangering our funds mental industry through the high cos of transportation from farm te market and through the Influx of foreign farm products, because we offer, essentially unprotected, the besl market in the world. It rculd be better to err in protecting our basic food industry than paralyse our farm ectivities in the world struggle for restored exchanges. The maturer revision of o-r tarifi laws should be based on the policy of protection, resisting that se!fishness which turns to greed, but ever con cerned with that productivity at home which is the source of all abiding good fortune. It is agreed that we can not sell unless we buy, but ability to sell is pased on home development und the fostering of home markets. There Is little sentiment In the trade of the world. Trade can and ought to be honorable, but It knows no sym pathy. While the delegates of the nations at war were debating peace terms at Paris, and while we later de bated our part in completing the peace, commercial agents of other na tions were opening their lines and establaling their outposts. with a for ward look to the morrow's trade. It was wholly proper, and has been ad vantageous to them. Tardy as we are, it will be safer to hold our own market secure, and build thereon for our trade with the world. BUUtWUB SIBl NUIENTIAL..
