Tl , iSTemarj oi i.anur ayt mere Is I rocpert ot Coal Shortage Due to Mine Strike. Operators Are Criticized Wa.hiiiutoti. March 30. While Mating that a general strike in tin-! ionized coal mines is certain to he pin Saturday, Secretary of Labor J. J. Davis declared in a statement to night that the situation leaves "no txcuse for advance in coal prices" and no prospect of coal shortage for the public. Reviewing the government's effort during the last two months to reach a settlement, Mr. Davis expressed 'keen disappointment at the failure of certain operators to fulfill the terms of their obligation" to confer with miners for the making of new wage agreements which might have prevented suspension of work. "All the go-ernmcnt's efforts in the prof er of mediation, eonuh.i- , tion and compromise, mi fty ftrAiittcA cam "have failed to save the country from the national strike test of economic strength between em ployer and employe in, the coal in dustry. In this eilort. the president and myself have neither right nor personal desire to dictate any pro gram. Our one desire has been to induce, by persuasion and urgenee, the operators and miners to dis charge the obligation they assumed themselves, to confer again for the shaping of a new agreement." Miners Willing to Confer. The miners, the secretary said, had always been willing to confer through their union representatives, but the operators, although for dif ferently assigned reasons in several localities, have "turned their backs on a chance to lay bare, not only to the miners but to the public, at least, their reasons for declining a new wage agreement." "A conference for the operators," he added, "would have removed any stigma of bad faith". "There may be faults on both sides of this bituminous dispute," he de clared, "but the side that openly re pudiates its written and signed obligations has crippled its case be fore the bar of public opinion." The agreement repudiated, the statement explained, was that con tained in the wage contract between operators and miners in the central competitive field, including Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and western Pennsyl vania, which has constituted th& basic wage contract for all other coal fields in former years. The situation as to anthracite mining, it was added, "forms a pleasing contrast because operators and miners arc meeting di rectly together. Further. complications in the coal industry, Mr. Davis continued, were due to the existence of over produc-' tion, amounting to "fully 30 per cent over development in the-bituminous fields." One result of this, it was pointed out, was to leave available in storage now stocks of coal esti mated at 10,000.000 tons for anthra cite and 65,000,000 tons for bitu minous. No Action Taken. The wisdom of asking President Harding to invite representatives of miners and 'operators to meet here tomorrow in an eleventh hour effort to call off the strike was considered by the house labor committee but with out action being taken. Believing there still was hope of preventing the shutdown m all fields set for tomorrow at midnight, two members of the committee pro posed that the president be requested to take a hand-and for a time it ap peared as if a resolution looking to this end might be adopted. Word had come from the senate, mean while, that Chairman Borah of the senate labor commitee. had such a proposition in mind and the house committee went at once to suggest joint action. Chairman Borah explained, how ever, that members of the committee had not been advised as to such a vote, that he did not feel at liberty to take up the question alone and it probably would be best to let the question go over. He intimated that he might call his committee to con sider it later. Buffalo County Treasurer Dies at Home in Kearney Kearney, Neb., March 30. (Spe cial Telegram.) J. C.

On Verge of Breakdown. Miss Stone seemed on the verge bl a complete breakdown as she gave her testimony. Once a five-minute recess was taken to permit her to recover herself.

Five days after she went on the case, she said, he proposed mar riage and she accepted. On the steps of the city hall, she said. Kinkead told her that there was another in Cincinnati who had a claim on him and that he could not go through a formal ceremony just then. He slipped a wedding ring on her finger, she said, and told her that he was so prominent a lawyer that (Turn to Pace Two. Column Tiro.)

Transatlantic Flight Started by 2 Portuguese 2 Naval Captains Plan to Make Flight From Lisbon to Brazil iu 60 Hours . Flying. Lisbon, March 30. (By. A. P.) Capts. Sacadura and -.

(By A. P.) The attempted flight from Lisbon to Pernambuco. Brazil, was started this morning, the naval captains, Sacadura and Coutinho. taking the air at 7 o'clock. They hope to make the transatlantic passage of more than 4,000 miles in 60 hours actual flying time. ... The first stop will be at the Canary islands: thence the route is by way of the Cape Verde islands and Fer nando Noranho, a short distance northeast of Pernambuco. The flight from the Cape Verde islands to Fernando Noranho is at tended with considerable risk, as the only precaution taken for the safety of the aviators has been the station ing of three Portuguese cruisers along the line of flight. The machine in, which the aviators are making their flight is a hydro- airplane. It is of comparatively small dimensions, and this, in connection with the great distances to be trav eled over water and the scant provi sion for patroling the course, ' has caused the expedition to be regarded as extremely hazardous. - '. The first two jumps the Portuguese aviators have planned to take are more than 1 ,000 -miles each, to the Canaries and, then to the Cape Verde islands, while the last stage of their contemplated flight, to the Brazilian coast, is nearly 1,700 miles.. This, final jump, if accomplished, will be second only" in overseas distance to that of Capt. Sir John Alcock in his notable transatlantic flight from' Newfoundland to Ireland, more' than 1,900 miles, in the summer of. 1919. The flight "of " the American, naval seaplane NC-4 from New-! foundland to 'the Azores' earlier, in, the same year was approximately; 1,200 miles. .?,';. .y .' . I ' j Prohibition Sleuths Start.
