START SECOND EN- TRANCE TO MINE Former Butte Digger May be Hero; Loose Rock in Tunnel Gives Hope to Workers Jackson, Dal.—A new effort has been started for the rescue of tin* 47 men entombed in the Argonaut mine here since last Sunday night. While work was continued at the dif ficult task of reopening away from the 3,600-foot level of the adjacent Kennedy mine into the 4.209 foot level <»f the Argonaut workings, other crews set to work to break through a wall ot rock and dirt fn.:n tb;- Kennedy’s 3,900-foot level, which would admit of entrance Into the Argonaut shaft at a depth of 4.650 feet. Mining Experts directing the rescue work would not estimate the length of time required to reopen either of the unnels, but the belief was prevalent hat neither crew could hope to reach he imprisoned miners in J< • < than 48 hours. Practically the only hope lies in find ing the men in air pockets in the lower ’evels formed by bulkheading the en ’rances to drifts to prevent gas fumes from the burning mine from reaching hem. If the men had the strength and presence of mind to bulkhead the mine they could live for several days, and ’nay yet lie found alive. Ernest Miller, one of the entombed miners, accomplished a similar feat in Butte, Mont., some years ago. when he saved himself and 25 companions from death through sheer courage and pres ence of mind. In the Butte disaster. Miller counseled with his conrades and ♦hey bravely set to work walling them selves in. chinking the cracks with mud and effectively cutting off the gas fumes. On the fourth day rescuers reached them. VETO EXCUSE FOUND Hi LAND BONUS BILL Backers of Measure Beg Enemies Not to Load Measure Down tor Harding’s Axe Washington.—All pending amend ments to the soldiers’ bonus bill have heen disposed of by the senate, but whether a final vote would be reached soon depended upon the number and length of speeches. With favorable action assured, the paramount question in the minds of friends and foes alike was the recep tion the measure would receive at the White house. There still was no offi cial word from the president, but cull ers who discussed the subject with him said they gained the Impression that the addition of the land reclamation project and the provision for the pay ment of the bonus out of the interest on the foreign debt, had made the bill even more objectionable than It was in Its original form. Leading proponents of the hill urged throughout the debate that the senate refrain from “loading <?»wn” the meas ure with additional amendments which might furnish further ground for a veto. All proposed changes were re jected by decisive majorities. First the Burst! m amendment to pay the veterans half cash immediately and the remainder in five years, was voted down. 44 to 27. Then, without a roll call, the Smoot proposal to pay the bonus with a manufacturers’ sales tax was disagreed to. Senator Smoot presented and argued at length in favor of his plan to give each veteran a paid-up life Insurance policy, maturing in 20 years or sooner at death, but this was rejected, 46 to 18. Before offering it. the Utah sen ator eliminated the sales taxes pro vision. Shots Start Village Fire Missoula. Mont.—The village of Hu son, 25 miles west of here.

FORD SAYS WALL STREET TO BLAME SITUATION WILL END WHEN CONDITIONS RILE ABUSED PUBLIC INTO ACTION DETROIT FACTORY TO CLOSE Thousands Will be Jobless; Coal Short- 22* ** Cause; Country Must “T irow up Its Hands in Surrender” Detroit.—lndustry, the country over, must "throw up Its hands in surren der,” within a few weeks. If the rail and coal strikes continue, Henry Ford declared in announcing the decision of the Ford Motor .company to crose its plants here and in many other cities September 16, because of tlie fuel sit uation. Mr. Ford held financial interests re sponsible for the industrial tie up. de claring the “money barons” were man ipulating the labor unions and that public officials, state and national, were impotent in the crisis. The strikes would end. he continued, “when the majority of the people are cold and hungry enough to resort to drastic action.” “Continuance of those disturbances tn the economic life of the nation is due simply to the greed and avarice of Wall street,” Mr. Ford asserted, adding that these interests “dominated the railroads, coni mines and public utili ties of the country.” The deadlock in strike negotiations indicated, he declared, the existence of “a plot to unload the demoralized and rm-down railroads onto the gov ernment at their own price and to mulct tlie people through excessive coal prices.” Ong hundred and five thousand em ployes of the Ford Motor company throughout the country will be without jobs after September 16 and in addi tion several hundred other workers employed in industries furnishing ma terials for the Ford plants will be af fected.

In a sharp gain in production, a figure as high as 9.000.000 tons a week being mentioned as likely to he realized In tlie immediate future. On the other hand, it Is pointed out that tlie government’s schemes of priority must remain in force for some time, particularly until the needs of the northwest have been taken care of. so that the steel industry is likely tn feel the restriction Imposed by fuel short age for some weeks to come. The 20 per cent Increase In steel wages meanwhile Is Interpreted as In dicating that steel manufacturers ex pect to be able to dlsjinse of all their available production this fall at fa vorable prices, a conclusion which Is reinforced by the present restricted scale of operations as compared with the rate of activity dnrlng the spring and early summer. Whether or not steel prices will rise materially above present levels, however, remains to be seen. Arguing from the Increase in wages In the coni nnd steel Industries which nre symptomatic of shortage of com mon labor, and the higher prices of coal and steel products, some observers conclude that the country Is entering a period of “Inflation.” While deflnl- Itons of this term vary considerably what Is probably meant Is that some thing like a booin. short lived or other wise is to be bred of a general rise in commodities prices Sweden Stays Wet Stockholm lncomplete returns In the referendum on the ipipstion of pro hibition Indicated strongly against It The ballot thus far reported iKS.OOo voted against nnd 129.000 for such n measure.

The fire has risen from the 3,000-foot level to the 2,400-foot level. A portion of the main shaft be low the 2,700-foof level caved in. and workmen can remain at the 2,400-foot level to the fight the flames only a few minutes at a time. The men are be lieved to be on the 4,500-foot and lower levels. It has been definitely established that there has been a cave-in In the tunnel connecting the Argonaut work ings with the nearby Kennedy mine, so that, even If it were possible to break through the massive concrete bulkhead closing this tunnel “it would take a month,’’ according to one of the miners, to get into the Argonaut’s levels by that route. The Argonaut mine, one of the fa mous gold producers In California, was opened 25 years ago. The mine is con trolled by New York men and is a short distance from Martell, in Amadore county. The Kennedy mine adjoining, was opened In the 60’s and always has been productive. If the tunnel In the Kennedy has collapsed, little if any hope It* ex pressed for the entombed men.
