ARE BROKEN OFF Settlement of British Coal Miners' Strike Is Delayed s CONFERENCE BREAK UP IS COMPLETE So,Premier Lloyd George Told House of Commons , London, April, 7 (By the Associated Press). A complete breakup of the conference between representatives of the miners, the owners and the govern ment with the view to settling the coal strike was announced in'the House of Commons by Premier Lloyd George this afternoon. , The failure of the conference, Mr. Lloyd George declared, came as a conse quence of the refusal of the miners' federation to allow the pump men to return to work until th? miners' condi tion of a national wage system and a national profits pool had been accepted. He added that since it had been made clear the miners' federation Would not consider any settlement except on the conceding of their demands in fill the government, relying on the assistance of the great mass of the people, must take every means in its power to meet the situation. The view of the miners' federation. he asserted, was that to permit 'he pumpers to return would be to relin quish the weapon with which the min ers hoped to bring the government snd the mine owners to a speedy acceptance of their terms. Amid cheers, the premier declared that the issue wus much wider than that of what wages should lie paid. The government, he said, had always kept an open mind on the question of wages and was prepared:' to use its good offices in reaching a solution. He regretted extremely that the miners bad taken o grave a decision, involv ing injury and misery to their fellow rtizens throughout the countrv as well as to themselves.

HUGHES AKS FOR A RECONSIDERATION Notes Addressed to JaparL, Prance, ftaly and Great Britain Washington, D. C, : April 7. The right of the American government to participate in the peace settlements affecting the former overseas posses sioits of Germany has been stated anew by Secretary Hughes in similar notes which are now before the Japanese, French, British and Italian govern ment a, i Continuing a correspondence begun by the Wilson administration, the new secretary of state specifically asks those governments to reconsider the award of a mandate to Japan for the Island of Yap. He argues that the fail ure of the United States ,to become a party to the treaty. of Versailles has not affected its rights in the overseas possessions, the titles in which Ger many renounced in the peace treaty to the principal allied and associated powers. The attention of the four allied gov ernments is again called to the fact that President Wilson, at the meetings "hf the council of four in Paris during the framing of the treaty, specifically made reservations affecting the future statute of Yap. Furthermore, Mr. Hughe embodies in his note a mem orandum from Mr. Wilson to the state department under date of last March in which the former president de clares he never agreed to a mandute for Japan over the island and that it was his understanding that the ones tion of the disposition of the island was to be deferred until the- question of cable communications was settled. It has been contended that the man date over Yap was awarded to Japan by the council of four while I resident Wilson was at Paris.
