Fetta, former member of the Palladium editorial staff, and Daily News correspondent for the Lon don conference. Early in the conference it was de cided to send a message to the world and a committee to frame this was ap pointed. Dr. Rufus M. Jones of Haverford college, and Clarence Pickett of this city, general secretary of the Young Friends' association of America, are members of the message committee. A number of suggestions came from 111.1 S. Ill KJ- 1 U.7 1.W A V, V 111 U1V I 11 cv l. i shall be contained in the message to j me woria, wnicn conference delegates I hope will be powerful enough to meet the present world situation. Urge Unity in Crisis Unity at the present crisis is urged and some concern has been felt by a. number of Friends 'regarding the differences which arose in the So ciety of Friends during the war, when a certain element joined military ranks. That religious education in Friends educational institutions in America is progressing rapidly, was one of tho outstanding statements. It is the be lief of Herman O. Newman of Chicago, that the American delegation will re ject the League of Nations covenant not because the U. S. senate has propagated an anti-league feeling, but because the majority of Americans feel the covenant is full of faults. A'Britlsher, responding to the Amer ican speaking against the covenant, lauded the speakers generosity in finding only 37 mistakes, but said that fully knowing the fallacies of the document, it was an instrument that could be used and without it, all hope of betterment through internat ional co-operation was lost. Dr. Walter C. Woodward of Rich mond, editor of the American Friend, made the opening address at one ses sion in which the relation of Friends to the civic and international situation was discussed. H said that our con ception of state was an archaic policy wrong in principle. Believe in Conscience. The necessity of state is conceded by Friends, who also believe that the freedom of the conscience is an es sential factor in human welfare, and that the individual must, give alle giance to it in order to insure pro gress and avoid decay. F. C. Pollard, of London, discussing the great steps that njust be taken to gain freedom, stoutly declared that reason and war do not go hand in hand, and that one cannot be had at the same time as the other.

The joint scale conference of min ers and operators adjourned sine die late last night after being in session five days.

The operators offered a resolution in which they proposed recommend ing to President Wilson that he ap point a board of inquiry and adjust ment of seven members to settle the controversy. It was unanimously adopted by the operators, but the min ers rejected it. The resolution would have asked President Wilson to name the chair man and two members, and the oper ators and miners two each. Rejected by Both In opposing the resolution, John L. Lewis, president of the miners, said it was merely a recommendation and that it had been rejected by both the operators and miners when the pres ent wage agreement was made in New York last March. While Ellis Searles, of Indianapo lis, spokesman for the miners, paid early today that there will be no strike, the operators were not so op timistic. One prominent operator said "anything might come out of the sit uation."

Both Democrats and Republicans had been invited by the legislators in charge of the dele gation.

The Republican nominee spoke first to a group of American Indians, who brought to him a plea for extension of their racial rights. The second address was delivered to the local lumbermen's association and was a plea for a forest conserva tion policy that would insure a tim ber supply to meet domestic needs and thus raise the standard of American housing conditions. The federal gov ernment, he said, should turn Its at tention to cultivation of forest crops just as it has concerned itself in the past with the growing of food.

"This will legally end the war; it will help to re-establish credits. A call will be made upon our mineral wealth and our productive skill. We will have the ships to sail every sea; the supply of life's essentials will be equal to the demand; living costs will be reduced. What we would otherwise be spending for guns and powder and ships, will be applied to our war debt, and above all, we will be happy in the consciousness that war is practically Impossible.
