Premier Polncare and members of bis cabinet are In London this week, the date of the conference with Lloyd George having been advanced. Pre-mier Theiinls and others of Belgium also are there. The general subject of reparations and war debts will be considered. without the services of the striking shopmen. Roads unable to do so, par-ticularly carriers reaching Into the producing bituminous tields, may be taken over nnd opeiuted by the.fed-eru- l government pRKSIDENT, LEWIS of the mine workers maile a definite move for settlement of the coal strike by calling a Joint wage conference of operators ami miners of the central competitive 'jltumlnous field, to be held In Cleve-land August 7. Unfortunately, the op-erators, or most of them, refused to attend. Meanwhile Henry B. Spencer, who wos appointed federal fuel distributor, and bis committee and subcommittees began functioning actively. According to Mr. Spencer's plun, the federal or-ganization will cover the distribution of avuilnble supplies among the rail-ways, federal institutions and states, and the governors of the states will handle locnl supplies. State fuel com-mittees were called on to report at once the consumption of coal In their territories by utilities, Industries and households and to submit a list of those who should receive priorities. These state committees are also made entirely responsible for the prevention of profiteering and extortion. In the sale and distribution of coal within their respective states. Governor McCruy of Indiana took the most vigorous action yet reported In the mutter of getting out coal. The Milners of the state refused to Issue permits to sufficient men to operate the mines for emergency purposes, so the governor opened two strip mines In Clay county under the protection of 800 state troops as a preliminary measure and declared a state of mar-tial law to exist in that potf of the county. These mines are In the hands of a receiver appointed by the federal court, and the governor called atten-tion to the fuct that this places the United States government behind them. Mr. McCray also called a con-ference of the governors of Pennsylva-nia, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky nnd Wisconsin. Governor Preus of Minnesota says the coal situation In the Northwest Is more threatening than ever, and he has asked the gov-ernors of Iowa. Wisconsin and North and South Dakota to meet with blm In St. Paul August 10. In Wisconsin the bottom of the coal bin is In sight and, at the request of the state fuel commission, all ornnmcntat and dis-play electric lighting has been discon-tinued. By EDWARD W. PICKARD , for the ending of NEGOTIATIONS were at least temporarily halted again last week when the plan of President UanllnR falb'd of complete acceptance. Optl- -' mlstlc prophets of Immediate peace were confounded. As expressed by himself, the Pres-ident's plun comprised these stipula-tions: First Railway managers and work-men, are to agree to recognize the validity of all decisions of the rail-roa- d labor board' and to faithfully carry out such decisions as contem-plated by the law. - Second The carriers will withdraw all lawsuits growing out of the strike and railroad tabor board decisions "which have been Involved in the strike may be taken. In the exercise of recog-nized rights, by either party to a rail-road labor board for rehearing. Third All employees now on strike to be returned to work and to their former positions with seniority and other rights unimpaired. The repre-sentatives of the carriers and the rep-resentatives of the organizations espe-cially agree that there will be no dis-crimination by either party against the employees who did or did not strike. The railway executives were the first to act on these proposals. They accepted the first ; agreed to the Sec-ond with the urdersiMiiding that the strike be first ciu&O off and thnt the representatives of the strikers pledge themselves and the strikers against violence In any form against the men now at work ard the property of the carriers; declared It was Impossible for them to agree to the first sentence of the tb'J-- proposal. " Having placed themselves In a strategic position by awaiting action by the executives, the representatives of fie striking shopmen met In Chica-go and voted, though with expressed reluctance, to accept the President's proposals. This was conditioned up-o- n recognition of the union Interpre-tation of the plan, which, among other things, would require the Pennsyl-vania railroad to abandon its fight for tin pe-- i s.iup. The shop crafts also liiMi, on the ffctubliftiiuiciit of a na-tional board of adjustment which would relieve the labor board of all llsputes except those Involving wages. Some roads have agreed to regional boards, but probably all of them are apposed to orM national board which would prescribe uniform condition re-gardless of needs of various localities. Seemingly the r ill executives are In Jead earnest In their refusal to aban-don their stand m. seniority rights. They notified their local employe; and other workers thet they would be protected and guan tevd permanent employment, and we;.-- ahead with the task of filling the pit vs of the strik-ers. In New York It was said their decisive stand resulted In a rush of applicants for Jobs. Public opinion Is widely divided concerning this attitude of the railway executives. Many per-sons feel that It is only Justice to the men who have remained at work and those who have responded to the call for workers to take up the tools the strikers laid down. Those who sym-pathize strongly with the demands of organized labor take the position that the action of the railway beuds Is a part of a campaign to destroy the unions. It wus predicted In Washington that President Harding would do nothing more In the mntter at present, giving the railroads an opportunity to prove Uut thej eouli rperate effectively DOINGS of the Greeks In Turkey disturbed the allies. First, King Constnntlne formally asked per-mission to iecupy Constantinople. This was probably "for home con-sumption," but the allies, much excit-ed, refused the request and sent a lot of troops into Thrace, forcing the Greeks to withdraw to six miles from the Cliatnlja lines Then Constan-tin- e suddenly proclaimed Smyrna and Its hinterland an autonomous state un-der protection of the Grek army, de-claring the occupied regions In Asia Minor should not bo returned to Tur-key. He thus upset the pluns of the allies for a peace settlement between Greece and Turkey, possibly believing that In this way only cun he keep the Greek people from again driving him from the throne.

Some 20,000 employees of the surfuce and elevated lines quit curly Tuesday morning and no attempt was made to take the cars out of the yards. Motor vehicles of all descriptions were called Into service and on the first day there wus a terrific congestion of trufllc. By Wednesday the police, motor clubs and Individual motorists had worked out a system that brought the situation almost to normal, nnd many a Chlca-gon- n began to wonder If the city couldn't Pet along without the noisy street and elevated cars. Also they learned the worth of one-wa- y street regulations In the business cetiter. Toward the end of the week pence negotiations were resumed, but the lo-c-president of the employees said be saw no prospect for an early settle-ment. The men are fighting not only a proponed wage reduction, but a nine-hou- r day. Chunces of an order by the state public utilities board reducing fares and politics enter Into the Chi-cago situation, ond It was frequently and openly asserted that the strike was a "put up Job" to prevent the fare reduction and to deal a blow to Mayor Thompson and bis organization. The mayor has long promised a fare and last week tried to take steps to-ward the establishing of a munlclpa' bus line to supplant the street cars.
