OE PARALYZED IN THIRTY DAYS AFTER COAL STRIKE IS STARTED Such Is Opinion of Government Experts—Labor Secretary Determined to Prevent a Walkout at Almost Any Cost 'Washlntgon, Oct. 16.—Industrie* throughout the United States will be paralysed a month after the coal strike goes Into effect November 1, govern ment experts estimated today. Most of the country will feel Jhe r.'rlke seriously long before a month expires. It was said, even with good weather. With cold weather two weeks was given as the minimum be fore the public feels the strike. C. K. Lesher, a coal expert of the geological survey estimated the pres ent production at from 11,000,000 to 11.500.000 tons of coal a week. There are on hand about 30,000,000 tons. This, lusher said, probably would last a month. Railroad reserve coal Is variously es timated. Figures submitted to the sen ate recently show a ten days' supply on hand. Other figures, also given to the senate show a month's supply in re serve. The latter figures show 12, 600.000 tons on hand and an average yearly consumption of 130,000,000 tons. Because of urtequul distribution of coal many sections of the country would be hit by the strike within a week, it was declared. TO PREVENT STRIKE. Washington.

Brewster, president of the j coal operators will confer in an effort to reach a basis of settlement. Secretary Wilson lias been informed ' that Lewis believes only a definite agreement between the employers and workers can prevent the strike going Into effect as scheduled. Should an agreement be reached at Washington through Secretary Wilson's mediation; aud signed by Representatlevs of both side* the strike will be held ofr until a miner's convention can be called to ratify or reject the settlement, accord ing to the understanding here today.

Senator Kellogg, Minnesota, speaking against the Shantung amendment held that our "hands off" policy in Shan tung for 20 years during Germany's possession of it should be continued.

When the history of the war has been written, the work done by the women at home will Impress Itself upon this nation as few even now real ize. Literally millions of women left their homes and took up war activities Into which women had never before been called, and many more at home devoted long hours at work In knitting and preparing surgical dressings for the boys "over there." Some may have worked at the expense of health and are now suffering from headaches, backache, dragglng-down pains or some derangement. It should be re membered that Lydia E.

Tho treaty is the best that can- be rxpected at pres ent, he concluded, and It will not bear euch drastic changes as the Bhantqgn amendment. Townsend would be sat isfied with reservations, but unless they clearly state America's position on the Shantung transfer he will vote against the treaty TODAYA Y SEE (Continued from Pago One) Republican leaders believe that a res ervation expressing dissent from the transfer of Shantung to Japan, and re serving complete freedom of action on the part of the United'States in any controversy that may arise between China and Japan will pass by a ma jority vote. Following the Shantung* vote an hour's reading of the treaty will bring the Johnson amendment before the senate. This proposal which would give the United States six votes in the league assembly will be rejected, ad ministration leaders believe. Although possibility of adopting a reservation is admitted. Such a reser vation would declare that In any con troversy Involving the United States only one vote could be cast by the British empire. Administration leaders believe that no amendments to the treaty can be passed. Announcement In Paris that an Indefinite delay will be required before the treaty is put Into effect was not held to change the publication in the senate. SOME INDUCEMENT.
