Interest turned to a meeting of the international executive board Wednes- , day at Indianapolis summoned before' the president " statement was if.u-d, to diSCUSB strike plans It could not be determined whether any attitude, toward President Wilson's "uliimat-i urn" would be assumed by strike lead ers prior to the executive board con f n nee Mr. Lewis expressed the hope 1 that the power of the government "would never be used to throttle and! crush the efforts of the toilers to Im prove their material welfare and ele-j vate the standards of their citizen-1 ship."

Morning news papers give much space to the Amcrl cau labor crisis and parallels are draw n with the present situation across the Atlantic and industrial events in Grt al Britain since the first of the year "The general resemblance is re markable," says lhe Chronicle, which I suggests some profound underlying ;rthin In the causation of labor un rest." The Daily News remarks upon the coincidence of the strike in the Ameri can bitumlnoufl field al which wat in nounced the same course that British miners begun their campaign for na tionalization of mines at a meeting held in Manchester. "As far as American workers are aiming al a resonable improvement in I the standard of living, this coiii'i denco Is satisfactory," says the news p'a per. The labor organ, The Harold, sas: 1 "Tbe industrial revolution is taking place. The first deprived a man of his Individuality and made him part I f a machine to manufacture profits ;the second- is an organized cO-oper-jatlve movement to restore Individu ality and insure a man the results of hls own labor and of his master's ma chine. That i the explanation of the American tiniest and of similar unrest j in our count ry." Preparing for Strike. INDIANA! 'ti LIS, Ind.. Oct 27.

Flotchor, ambassador to Mexico. Is being discussed as the succes sor of Thomas Nolson Pago, who recently withdrew from diplomat ic service by resigning the Ital ian ambassadorial posU the proposed conference of governors of coal producing states in Indianapo lis. The fact that John L. Lewis, actin? president of the i'nited Mine Work-, ers of America, had called a confer once of union officials at Indianapolis' for Wednesday, Mr Harding said, might have some bearing on th gov ernor's conference In a message to President Wilson, Governor Harding said whatever pow- ' r and influence his office had was at the president's disposal, first to set- ( tie tbe threatened strike and if ef forts at settlement fail, then to pre- vent It. WASHINGTON. Oct. 27 Measures to meet the situation which would re sult from the threatened strike of bitu minous coal miners Saturday were con Bldered today by administration oltt cials No reply from officers of the United Mine Workers of America to the de mand of President Wilson that the strike be called off Is expected until after the miners' executive committee meets at Indianapolis Wednesday, but meantime officials took cognizance of the statements of union leaders that it would be physically impossible to withdraw the strike order by Novem ber 1. The administration's program for dealing with the strike naturally will not be disclosed until the .strike has developed "To announce now what the goern ment will do in the event of a strike." said one official, "would be to play into the hands of the Bolshevik element. If you an- going to start a great of fensive you do not tell the other fel low what you are going to do." While it is the purpose to keep a "strong hand" on the radicals, offi cials made ii plain that caution could be exercised not to antagonize the more conservative element. In this connection thev said that many of the miners' demands might be just. "Il is the means they use to obtain their demands to which we object." said one high official.

' i Prof. Maiorana Declares Experiments Upset Gravitation Laws. ROME, Sunday. Oct. 36. Newton's theory of gravitation, as attacked by Professor Maiorana. today before a meeting of prominent scientists here. He declared experiments he had per formed had unset the hitherto accept ed laws governing the motions ot ce lestial bodies. Newton's theory while hitherto con sidered absolute, h? only an approxi mate hypothesis, accordlne to Profes sor Maiorana. who supports this as sertion by showing that a ball of lead rioating in mercury becomes slightly lighter. From this the professor deduces four things: First, that bodies have both a true and an apparent mass, the true mass of the sun being double tne apparent ujubb, Second, that the stars attract other bodies with forces entirely different from those thus far ad mitted to exist. Third, that the solar heat of stars Is generated by the force of gravitation emanating from inter ior strata. From this he argues thp solar system has had an im mensely longer life than has been believed. Fourth that the evolution of the world has been closely linked to the phenomonen which he has discovered Or Maiorana explains by this mesne the fact that all stars are more or less luminous and claims that his theory will bring about a revolution in astro physical science.
