The strike, which was expected to
end October 1, is Mill in progress. The
strikers claim that the reason for
continuing the strike was the fact
that all men on strike were not prom
ised employment when work was re
rumtd. On September 22 the compa
nies announced their readiness to ac-
vt the terms agreed to between the
federal mediators and the operators.
Tiie strikers were expected to resume
w ork October 1 and had notified the
operators, through the grievance com
mittees of this intention. However,
:t was decided to continue the strike,
pickets were put out and efforts made
to present the men from returning to
thf mines.
Many of the craftsmen and other
American employes reported for work
at the concentrators and smelters, but,
because of the inability of the com
panies to operate the mines, the plants
could not be operated. Mexicans and
Spaniards appear to be in control of
the situation, with the Italian element
remaining neutral. Indications now
notnt to an indefinite shutdown.

Says Government Has No
Case Against Indicted
I. W. W. Leaders.
Chicago, I1L, Oct. 3. Whether an
organization can go on strike during
war time and whether members of
organizations can stay on a strike
when that strike was initiated be
fore the war started, are the two
paramount issues between the United
States government and the 166 in
dicted members of the I. W. W., ac
cording to Otto Christensen. attorney
for the organization. He is in Chi
cago investigating charges against
the I. W. W. and preparing for the
legal battle which will open soon.
Sweeping denial of each of the
charges named in the indictment was
made by Christensen.
May Charge Will Fall.
"The government charges cannot
stand up." he declared. "The L W. W.
at no time has taken a positive po
sition in regard to the war. Some of

LONDON. Eng.. Oct. S. A crowd of
poor people In the southwest dis

the Daily Mail, for reprisals against
Germany for the air raids on London.
The premier shouted to the crowd:
"We will give it all back to them

shall bomb Germany with compound
The crowd cheered the promise
wildly. The premier had just com
pleted a tour of the area damaged hi

Government to Act,
The Evening standard states "on the
highest authority" that the govern
ment is paying special attention to
the question of reprisals for German
air attacks on London and other
places. It says:
"There is no qualification about the
decision of the government to under
take very effective reprisals at the
earliest moment consistent with the
advice of the hish military command."

Greece Gets No Money,
Pays Big Interest and
Loses 8,000,000.
Athens, Greece. Oct. 3. The Ger
man advance of 320.004,004 to the re.
cent government of king Constantine
was a financial transaction quite oat
of the ordinary, as now developed
under the fierce scrutiny of the Ven
izelos government which displaced
the Constantine regime.
As summed up hy It. Venizelos
himself, the peculiar features were:
While a huge sum was involved, yet
no real money passed from Berlin to
Athens, as It was all a credit tran
saction to be settled "after the war."
Also, although no money passed.
Greece finds herself obligated for
this J2fl,eO0,0C, and is paying inter,
est on it at 6 per cent. Finally, as
stated by Teniaelos. Tire OevrecW

000. Was Secret Transaction.
The German advance was made
about a year ago, at the time the
Constantine ministry needed funds to
pay the army vhich had been mo
bollzed. For some reason, however, it
was decided to make it a secret tran
saction, and not Inscribe it in the
budget or report it to parliament
along with other loans. This was
about the time the entente allies pre.
sented an ultimatum demanding the
demobilisation of the Greek army,
which probably accounts for the loan
being kept secret.
Was Merely a Credit.
In laying before parliament details
of the affair. X. Venizelos said that
Germany had in effect said: "In these
critical times, we cannot advance
actual money. But you can order
your government bank to print JJO,
00.000 of bank notes, and we will
order our bank to open a credit for
320,000,000. payable not today but at
the end of the war."
This was actually carried oat. Mr.
Venizelos explained, the printing pres.
ses of Athens turning out the $20,
000,000 in bills, based on the Berlin
deposit, but without any transfer of
money. The interest began to run at

Will -Study Shell Shock.
One subject to which much atten

"shell shock," which has proved very
troublesome to both the British and
French medical officers. Neurologists
attached to the various American
units will study the problem at
French and British hospitals and af

fellow medical officers, both in the
hospitals and attached to the troops
in training.

There is no more pitiful object in
the world than a man actuall suffer,

been used frequently as a care for

Shell shock often causes deafness,

remarkable thing about shell shock
cases is that none occur during a bat

the continual roar of battle. They
often become absolutely oblivious of
exploding shells under these circum

Shell shock comes when the men
