T RICHMOOT) LAOTTJM E WAR RIGIDITY EXCEEDED BY COAL ORDERS Most Extensive Shutdown of Industry in History Faces Nation if Coal Strike is Not Settled Soon. FACTORIES MAY CLOSE (By Associated Press) CHICAGO. Dec 2. Restrictions on the use of coal already put into effect by regional coal committees where he pinch of necessity had been felt, to day were extended throughout the nation under an order of the federal fuel administrator. The most exten sive shutdown of Industry In history 'was in prospect and domestic consum ers were preparing to endure priva tion and discoiufort as the strike of bituminous coal miners entered its second month. Only in Kansas where volunteers worked in the strip pits under protec- '3 lion of state and federal troops, and the New River fields of West Vir ginia, was there prospect today of in creased production In the former 7 pits were worked and in West Vir ginia operators said normal produc tion was la sight by the end of the week. Throughout the remainder of the eowitry, however, miners apparently remained steadfast in their determina tion not to return to work under the 14 per cent Wage increase ordered by the federal government and acceded to by the operators In Wyoming new labor troubles threatened to decrease the email amount of coal being brought out. Ex cept for brief shut-downs at the be ginning of the strike and twice since, the mines in that state generally had maintained operation. Members of the railroad broth er- Tioods in Kansas today were expected to act on a resolution adopted last night to request authority to refuse to handle coal mined by non-union work' ere. Fuel Further Curtailed. Under the sweeping order of Fuel Administrator Garfield, limiting deliv ery of fuel or power only to essential consumers In the first five classes of the war priorities list, curtailment of production was in prospect in factor les turning out boots and shoes, brass j. and- b roaze manufactures,' clothing. machinery, except where . specifically , exempted, iron and steel, jewelry, marble and stone products, musical instruments, paper goods, newsprint excepted, rubber goods, cigars, wag ons and carriages, wood manufactur- ers, sheet and metal productions, leather goods, mattresses, paints and Varnishes, photographic supplies and miscellaneous non-essentials. Theatres, motion picture shows and all other places of amusement faced complete shutdown. Churches and schools also were included in the category although efforts were being made to postpone closing schools as long as possible. Bakeries, except those producing only bread, also fen under the ban. as did confectioners and certain pack ing plants. In some, of these industries, how ever, an immediate shutdown might be forstalled if the regional coal com mittees allow them to operate until their present supply of coal was ex hausted. Many operators today toped work 3n the mines would soon be resumed runder inducement of the- increased "wage scale and the government and rpublio appeal. On the other hand, -John I Lewis, acting president of the miners, declared the government must redeem "Its pledge to the miners of -a SI per cent increase.' Lewis said that the situation was unchanged as Jar as the miners were concerned. He would not predict the next move to end the tie up. No Suffering Yet. Despite low temperatures that have spread over the west for the last few days but little actual suffering be cause of the fuel shortage today had been reported. In Nebraska where near zero weather prevailed, Kilgore had been without coal 10 days. West ern Kansas, also without coal several days, today were to obtain an emerg ency supply, the first taken from the strip pita of that state.

Mr. Frick suf fered an attack of ptomaine poison ing early In November. He had near ly recovered from this when compli cations developed. He was 69 years old. His fortune is estimated at $200,000,000. The career of Henry Clay Frick has formed one of the most fascinating chapters in the romance of industry in the United States. At 10, a boy on a farm in a family of only ordinary means, he was at 60, a man of so many millions that his fortune, like those of Carnegie and Rockefeller, was largely a matter of guess-work even to himself. It has been said he was worth more than $100,000,000, per haps as much as $200,000,000. Mr. Frick built up the greatest coke business in the world, and acquired such vast Interests in steel that be was also one of the principal mag nates in that industry, and In round ing out his career he became known as one of the world's greatest collect ors of master paintings. Mr. Frick was born December 19, 1849, at West Overton, Pa. His fath er attempted farming, but did not make a remarkable success of it and as a result young Henry Clay Frick was practically adopted into the Over holt family when he was about 12 years old. He received a good basic schooling, but there was nothing in his boyhood to indicate the remark able ability which characterized his later life, except hia eagerness to get into business. For a time he was bookkeeper in his grandfather's dis tillery, and from this position he went to Morgan and Company, coke dealers, and at about 21 years of age he ap peared in Pittsburgh as their agent. The coke industry was in its in fancy. The iron masters of Pittsburgh MISSOURI MAN MADE COMMERCE SECRETARY (By Associated Press) WASHINGTON. Dec. 2.

D., Dec. 2 A three ring political arena was thrown open here today to receive the hats of the various office seekers, from candidates for president of the United States to minor state positions. Three state conventions, held simul taneously in the capital city brought not only one of the greatest gather ings of South Dakota politicians in history to Pierre, but also attracted a number of national political leaders. The fact that each convention was to nominate candidates for United States senator, congress and state office, was overshadowed by the fact that the Re publican and Democratic conventions might endorse candidates for pres ident. Despite the fact that some of the minor candidates of the Republican party had made sharp fights for other candidates it was considered certain that the Republican majority was ready to indorse Major-fJeneral Leon ard Wood for the presidential nomin ation. Leaders of the state organi zation formally announced that Wood was their choice. The Democrats af ter a conference, decided to indorse President Wilson for a third term if he decided to become a candidate. Further indorsement by the Demo- crats would be contingent on the at-1 titude of the president, it was under stood. The non-partisan league, which has j a party status in South Dakota, also neia a siaie convention itaay. i state delegation is smaller than the ji t .i groups attending the other conven tions and may not nominate a full slate.

One dealer thinks that the price of eggs has about reached its limit and that dollar-a-dozen eggs will not be popular if prices go that high.

PRESIDENT DENOUNCES RADICALISM Right of Government to Pro tect People, Above the Right of Any Class, Says Reference to Coal Strike. ASKS ANlARLY PEACE (By Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Dec. 2 General recommendations on legislation to combat the cost of living, labor un rest, radicalism, and a readjustment of the nation to peace time basis. were the features of President Wilson's an nual message to congress delivered today. The peace treaty, the president told congress, will be discussed in a sepa rate message later, as will the railroad question. For the second time only since the president established the practice of addressing congress in person, his message was read today by the clerks. Asks Budget System The president's principle recom mendations were: Establishment of a budget system for the national finances. Reorganization of the taxation sys tem with simplification of the income and excess profits. Readjustment of the tariff system if necessary to meet changed world conditions, and make the system con form with the fact that the United States is "the greatest capitalist In the world". Recognition and relief for veteran soldiers of the world war, particular ly in the way of government farms as proposed by Secretary Lane. Proper measures to foster the dye stuffs industry built up during the war. to keep the United States inde pendent of foreign supply. An enlarged program for rural de velopment, in recognition of ihe farm ers' part in the war. Measures which "will remove the causes of political restlessness in our body politic". Unrest is Superficial. At this point the president made his most extensive reference to the peace treaty by saying the causes for the unrest "are superficial rather than deep seated," and that they "arise from or are connected with the failure on the part of our government to ar rive speedily at a just and -permanent peace, permitting -return to normal conditions; from the transfusion of radical theories from seething Euro pean centers, pending such delay; from heartless profitering resulting from the increase of the cost of living, and lastly from the machinations of passionate and malovalent agitators. With the return to normal conditions this unrest will rapidly disappear." The president renewed his recom mendations for legislation to deal ef fectively with "those persons who by violent methods would abrogate our time-tested institutions." Several recommendations, some re newals of previous ones, were made by the president to bring down the cost of living. Among them were ex tension of the food control law to peace times for the emergency; reg ulation for transportation of foods and inter;mte commerce; a cold storage law Modeled after the law in New Jersey; a law requiring marks to show the lengths of time foods are kept in storage and a law to secure "competitive selling and prevent un consciousable profits" by federal li cense of corporations selling foods in interstate commerce. Asks Democratic Industry. A long portion of the message was devoted to a discussion of the condi tions and rights of labor. "A definite program to bring about an improve ment in the conditions of labor, and bring about a genuine democratization J of industry," was recommended. 'The only way to keep men from , ogitatine aeainst erifvan ic i move tho irripvani-ot " u!H - i i 7 - dent s message. At another point it is declared, "the seed of revolution is repression." "The establishment of the principles regarding labor laid down in the cov enant of the league of nations, said the message, "offers us the way to industrial peace and soncilliation. No other road lies open to us. Govern ments must recognize the rights of men to bargain collectively for hu mane objects. Labor must no longer be treated as a commodity. Right to Strike Recognized. "The right of individuals to strike is inviolate," continued the message, "and ought not to be interfered with by any process of government, but there is a predominant right, and that is the right of the government to pro tect its people and assert its power and majesty against the challenge of any class." The president was referring to the government's recent injunction against the coal strike. The message closed with a pointed reference to radicalism and red doc trines, and referred to "Russia today with its blood and terror" as a "pain ful object lesson of the power of mi norities." "There are those in this country," said the message, "who threaten di rect action to force their will upon a majority. It makes little difference what minority it is. whether capital, or labor, or any other class: no sort of privilege will ever be permitted to dominate this country." Orderly processes, the message de clared, wer the only ones by which relief and reform could be obtained "Those who would propose any other methods of reforms are enemies of this country" the message said. "Let those beware who take the shorter road of disorders and revolutions."
