IN
DAUGHERTY CONFERS
The Attorney General Holds
That a Coal Shortage Will
Interfere With Transporta
tion and That on These
Grounds the Government
May Have a Say So.
Washington, Mar. 23. Warning
that the federal government would
tolerate no violence to prevent coal
nroductiondurlng the coal strike was
issued by Attorney General Daugherty
today.
Mr. Daugherty declared he was
making no threats and he believed e
man or set of men have the right to
strike in an orderly manner but they
did not have the right to interfere
with those who took their places.
The attorney general did not dis
close the government plan for the
miners' walkout but it is understood
he conferred with President Harding
and Secretary Davis on the possibility
of a public appeal by the President to
avert the strike.
Mr. Daugherty said he did not be
lieve the government would have to
wait until there was an actual coal
shortage before it could take action.
His stand be explained was that since
fuel was an indispensable part of
transportation the government had
the same power to act In the case of
any interference to coal production
that it would In the event of any in
terruption in the nation's transporta
tion.
The attorney general without elab
orating on his statement then pro
ceeded to say that action by the gov
ernment in connection with a coal
strike would be a little farther step
than had been taken by any other
country a little more drastic and a
little' more specific but his mind was
set upon it and only a court could
block it. He added that it was pos
sible one minute past midnight on
March 31 the Justice department
would have something to say on the
strike subject.
Mr. Calvin Young went to Kenly to

AMERICA FINDS A
NEED FOR BOARD
ON REPARATIONS
A POWERFUL BODY
And Mr. Harding Sees That if
America is to Have an Au
thoritative Word in Her
Claim for Rhine Expenses
and the Dye Question This
Nation Wants on Board.
(By David Lawrence.)
(Copyright 1922 by The Daily
; Til 3s.)
Washington, Mar. 22. The United
States will take its place at the table
ot the Reparations Commission before
very long.
This conclusion is inescapable after
the developments of the last 24
hours here the expression from the
White House that Congress Bhould
authorize American membership
and the decision today to make pub-
lln tnmnrrnw the full text Of the
American note to Great Britain,
Trance, Belgium, Italy and Japan ask-
ine that the claim for $241,000,000
for payment of the expenses of the
American army of occ pation on the
Rhine be considered by the Allied
powers who are doling out German
reparation money
No less a person than the President
himself has told Congress that the
situation over the import of dyes
from German-American textile Indus
try is so serious that American par
ticipatlon in the deliberations of the
Reparation Commission is absolute
ly essential. Mr. Harding now puts
the issue squarely up to Congress and
says the responsibility for the ab
sence of an American member on the
Reparations Commission lies with
Congress. ,
This is a new tack for the Execu
tive. Heretofore the initiative in in
ternational cooperation has been with
he President or Secretary of State but
so jealous has Congress become over
all dealings with Europe that Mr.
Harding Is not apt to project the
question especially at a time when
the treaties negotiated by the Arms
Conference are having such hard
sledding. ;
It is significant that both Senators
Lodge and U ulo.'wood, leaders of the
R;ablican -inl Democratic parties
respectively in the Senate are crying
out against the Allied neglect of the
American claim for $241,000,000 and
are Insisting on its payment. The
claim would not now be in question
if the.United States had been repre
sented on the Reparations Comrais
sion but he has hinted as much and
the chances are that he will permit
the country to believe Congress rath
er than ttie Executive is responsible
Incldentaly, the pressure for Amer
can representation on the reparations
commission comes from many differ
ent sides. The textile manufacturers
who say they are unable to obtain cer
tain dyes not made in this country
are insisting that the American gov
ernment exercise its rights and get
those dyes from Germany through the
reparations commission which is in
full charge of what is done with
Germany's dyes. It would be possible
for Instance to take dyes in payment
of a part of the $241,000,000 owed
America. These dyes would then be
sold to American firms by the United
States government which would credit
the receipts against the original sum
expended tt maintaining the army on
the Rhine;
ntll last November, the Textile Al
liance, an organization created by the
textile industry, was getting German
dyes by virtue of an arrangement with
thf-topartment : ot State which in

"Mo Commission." The De-
SOLDIER BONUS
ASSURED OF PASSAGE IN THE
HOUSE BEFORE ADJOURNMENT
PARTY LINES ARE UPSET
The Vote for Suspension of
Rules in Consideration or the
Measure Was Taken in the
Midst of a Great Hub Bub;
a four Hour Discussion Was
Launched With the Speak
ers given One Minute or
Two or Three for Their Dis
cussions. Washington, March 2 3. -Passage
of the four billion dollar soldier bo
nus bill by the house before ad
journment 'was made certain today
with adoption of the resolution pro
viding for consideration of the mea
sure under suspension 6f the rules.
The vote was 221 to 121 and was
without a roll call. Previously the
house had adopted a motion for the
question by roll call vote ot 276 to
126. As the roll call proceeded there
was more than the usual hub hub on
the floor, and those in the galleries
unused to the procedure in the house
looked down in surprise as the mem
bers milled about talking and laugh
ing while the clerk read the 335
names on the list. Those voting
were forced to shout at the tops of
their voices in an effort to have
their vote heard at the clerk's desk.
There was a breaking of party lines
on the vote on the suspension reso
lution. Many of the Democrats who
voted in the negative on this motion
were counted upon to support the
bonus on the final vote, and leaders
were confident that more than the
two-thirds majority would be ob
tained. Chairman Fordney of the ways
and means committee was at once
recognized by Speaker Gillette for a
i
motion to suspend rules and pass the j

members were given only one min
ute, others two, others three but by
unanimous consent all nad leave 10
extend their remarks in
the Con-
gressional records.
The Miners Have Little Hope
That the Strike Will Be
Averted, Scheduled for April
First.
New York, Mar. 23. In an
eleventh hour attempt to halt prepar
ations for a nation wide strike In the
coal industry the arbitration commit
tee of miners and operators sat be
hind locked doors.
The committee was composed of
eight men, four miners and four op-
rators. With them sat two non-voting
neutrals, a chairman and a secretary.
Upon the conference will depend
whether the 200,000 anthracite work
ers will proceed with their 400,000
brethren in the bituminous fields and
prepare to drop their tools April 1st.
while their 19 wage demands are giv
en consideration.
The miners representatives enter-
led the meeting with' little expectation
of an agreement.
Representatives of the .. operators
declined to make any predictions as
to the outcome.
