Force Used by Miners Keep Volunteers Out of Mines. to London, April 7.—(By the As sociated Pirn)—A complete breakup of the conference be tween representatives oi the min ers, the owners and the govern ment with the view to settling the coal strike was announced in the house of commons by Premier Lloyd George this afternoon. London,' April .-—(By the Associ ated Press.)—With the breakdown of the confereijcc between the coai# own* 'era and the striking. miners- concern ing the wage dispute this morning, and the almost immediate, decision of the railway men to join the transport workers in supporting the miners, Great Britain this evening wa» trembling- on the edge of an indus trial preclpicc. The prime minister, Mr. Lloyd George, who had attempted media tion announced the. complete rupture of the negotiations to the house of commons at mid afternoon, adding the significant statement that the is sue raised was much wider than that of wages. This was interpreted gen erally aa meaning tii&t the govern ment and the miners, to all intents and purposes, were again at grips over the old question of nationaliza tion of the mines! A Kay of Hope. Some ray of hope appeared in tho subsequent debate in the commons when J. R. Clynes, chairman of the parliamentary labor party, and others pleaded with the prime minister to call the miners and owners again 'to gether, with neither side ottering conditions as the basis for the re opening of negotiations. One of the members. of the miners' executive body, Samuel Finney, declared the miners were willing to negotiate on this basis and the debate generally showed a desire to make every effort to bring the contestants together again. Meanwhile, the representatives of the railway men, the transport work ers and the miners were.conferring to decide what immediate steps should be taken to enforce the miners' de mands. Both the railway and trans port mei} had stated their intention of givJffls "ijhe'tnltiers full support, but no InUfm&feji was forthcoming as, ta whether mis would mean a nation wide 'strike. The government, on the other ployment Jf all the facilities of the army and np-yy. Force Is Used. London, April 7.—Reports from many mining centers say that- the strikers were adopting a more ag gressive -attitude to make volunteers stop keeping the collieries free from water. In numerous instances force Was used. At Borrowsto.unnes, Scot land, miners today threw bombs at a pit head to intimidate volunteer work ers in the mine. No material dam age was done. London, April 7.—:(By the Asso ciated Press)—The National Union of Railwaiymen today unanimously de cided to support the coal miners in their strike. 'V Pumpmen Still Out. London, April 7.—(By the Associat ed Press)—Leaders of the miners' union, who conferred with Prime Minister Lloyd George this morning, reiused to order pumpmen and engi neers in mines affected by the coal strike, to resume wqrk, pending, nego tiations with "the mine owners. As the result of this refusal, the miners and tht4r .employers will not meet to day. Await Decision. Leaders of the transport workers' l'ederat On,' which already has de cided to support the miners, met this morning, but adjourned until 4 o'clock this afternoon in order that they might learn the result of the confer ence of- the miners and the prime minister before deciding what form the support will take. The National Union of Railwaymen also convened during the forenoon, but it remained in session to hear the result of the premier's confercm-" The conference of the prime min ister and the minors' leaders lasted upwards of two hours. Mr. Lloyd George, who was accompanied by Sir Robert S. Home, the chancellor of the exchequer Thomas J. MacN mara, minister of labor, and officials :of the mines department, urged the rfilners to accede to the owners' con dition that pumping be resumed pend ing negotiations.

Bottle Of "Evidence" Explodes Court Is Thrown Into Panic New York., April 7.—New York's night court, busy as a re sult of the police department's first drive at enforcement of state prohibition laws, adjourned temporarily in disorder early to day when a quart bottle of con fiscated liquor exploded in the pocket of a detective. The detective stood before the magistrate supporting a man, who, with bowed' head was con fessing that he had partaken too freely of the brew that intoxi cates. "Where's the evidence?" asked the court. The detective's hand moved toward his pocket. Ibere, fol lowed a loud report, some one shouted "Bomb" and a rush for the exits began. The detective was hurled to the floor, as was his prisoner. The magistrate and others In the court gathered outside, returning only when apprised of the cause of the ex plosion. The next defendant on the docket, a father of ten. still trembling as a result of the ex plosion scare, took a pledge to abstain "forever and ever."

Chicago, April 6. Compulsory pooling of grain thrust itself forward today as the big issue of the meeting called for ratification of a national co-operate grain marketing plan worked cut by the Farmers' Grain Marketing committee of seventeen. Decision on this question, as well as on the plan as a whole, .went oyer until tomorrow. Advocates of compulsory pooling asked that one third of the grain handled for pooling by farmers throuh the propsed national market ing agency be held. Recommenda tion of the committee was that pool ing should 'be left optional with each farmer. Sentiment for compulsory pooling grew rapidly under the determined attack on the optional plan In the closing, minutes of the day's session, and on the strength of its advocates. The issue was opened by C. O. Moser of Dallas, Texas, secretary of the Texas farm, bureau federation. He moved an amendment to the plan presented by the -Committee of Seven teen requiring each grain grower joining the national association to agree to the pooling of one third of all the wheat he delivered.

The. attacks, on optional pooling centered on the ground that co-oper ative marketing, of grain' on a na tional scale such as is projected can not succeed unless the national pool, whleh is an integral part of the plan, be jifromoted by compulsion. Other ways, of: selling grain,, similar to those at present in use but differing only in that they are on. a co-operative basis, are provided in the committee's plan, also for use at option.

Attitude of Administration Set Forth in Notes to Allies. Washington, April 7.—The right of the American government to partici pate in the peace settlements affecting the former overseas possessions at Germany has been stated anew by Secretary Hughes in similar note* which are now before the Japanese, British, French and Italian govern ments. Continuing a correspondence be gun by the Wilson administration, the new secretary of state specifically *®^s these governments to reconsider tjje award of a mandate to Japan for lhe Paciflc island of Yap. Mr. Hughes argues that the failure of the United States to become a party to the treaty of Versailles has not affected its rights in the overseas possessions, th« titles in which Germany renounced in the peace treaty to the principal Al lies and associated powers. The attention of the four Allied governments is again called that President Wilson at the meetings of the council of four in Paris during the framing of the treaty specifically made reservations affecting the future status of Tap. Furthermore, Mr. Hughes embodies in his not a mem orandum from Mr. Wilson to the state department under date of last March 3 in which the former president de clares he never agreed to a mandate for Japan over the island and that it was his understanding that the ques tion of the disposition of the Island was to be deferred until the question of cablc communications was settled. Washington, April 6.—Failure of the United StateR to ratify the treaty of Versailles will not be allowed to detract from this country's right to participate in peace settlements. Sec retary Hughes declared in notes ad dressed to Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan. The text of the note to Great Brit ain. which is similar to that to Franca and Italy, follows: "With respect to the mandate to Japan, purporting to have been con firmed ,and defined in its terms by the supreme council of the League of Na tions. of the German possessions in the Pacific ocean, lying north of the equator, this government deems it apr propriate to state the fundamental basis of its representations and the principles which, in its view, arc de terminative. "It will not be questioned that the right.to dispose of the overseas pos sessions of Oei ini&tiy Was acquired only through the victory of the Allied and Associated powers, and it is also believed that there is no disposition on the part of the British government to deny the participation of the Unit ed States in that victory.
