WASHINGTON, March 4 is the belief of Champ Clark "ami other leaders of the democratic majority in the house of representa tives that the bill just introduced, by Congressman Lee of Pensylvania, may avert the ugly threatened strike of anthracite coal miners. It pro poses to extend1 the (provisions of the 'Erdman act which applies mere ly to the settlement of disputes "in which, railroads are involved, to theagainstdistricet owners and operators of coal mines their agents and employees who are "engaged in the mining, preparation and tjrans]portation of coal," whldh enters into interstate commerce. One strong reason for the. espectlal favor with which the bill has been received is the fact that it has been framed along lines advised by Judge Knapp, uhief of the Commerce court, one-time chairman of the interstate dommerce commission, ancty one ofGrace the "mediators" under the Erdman act. Lee. held back the bill until he felt that a strike could not be avoided. Reviewing the seriousness of the situation, Congressman Lee says: "In my opinion bill which would make coal mine owners and miners subject to the terms of the Erdman act would avert the threatened catas trophe in this case,'r have consulted the party leaders, and they are fav orable to the MIL Members of the judiciary committee, who will con sider the measure, are ready to take if up at once, and to expedite its passage through the House. "Speaker Clark has assured me that the bill will be handled in thesociation. house as a party measure and I believe, anyhow, that it will meet general favor there, and also that ft will be popular elsewhere. Should it pass the house, no such disastrous thing as the threatened strike could occur, and we all want to prevent such gJganjttc controversies in the trade and labor matters." RETURNED TO CAPITAL. Deputy secretary of state Andrews returned to Bismarck Friday after noon from LidgerwoodV where he went to cast his ballot, in the pref erential primaries of Tuesday. mm?* •fr BANK WAS BLOWN.
