Nestos asked President Harding to use such means us he deems consistent to persuade the United Mine Workers of America to settle the North Dakota problem In that way. President Lewis of the mine work-ers was not disturbed, apparently, by the promulgation of the President's plan. He said that an Immediate re-sult of any uttempt to operate mines by non-unio- n labor would be the qult-tin- R of the maintenance workers, which would mean the speedy flooding of the mines. This .would need no strike order. , Harding Asks That Coal Mines Be Reopened and Promises Federal Protection.

Russian dele-gates, after ull their stubbornness and ufter refusal to meet with a com-mittee, at a plenary session went bo far as to offer to submit proposals to Moscow under which the bolshevik! would agree to recognize debts to for-eign natlonnlS as well as to furnish satisfactory compensation for selr.ed property through private negotiations, regardless of whether or not credits were received. But they spoiled all this by notifying the British dele-gates that the soviet government would expect Immediute de jure recog-nition. Immediately thereafter the allies and neutrals adopted a re sol u--1 tlon definitely ending the conference. The allies and, neutrals, finding all thoughts of a generul agreement with UuBslu futile, did not see any usr In risking u break among themselves, but each reserved the right to resume sepurate negotiations with ' Ilussiil after The Hague conference. f, head of the soviet delegation said; "Itussla,, will attend no morv Negotiations to End Railway Strike , Run Against Seniority SnagFranca Consents to Moratorium for Ger-man- y Conference at The Hague Ends In Failure. By EDWARD W. PICKARO PRESIDENT HARDING'S last plan termination of the coul strike failed of acceptance by the miners and by a considerable number of the operators. ' It was that the wines should be reopened under the old scale and that a commission should arbitrate a nutlonul wage scale. A large majority of the opera- - tors agreed to the plan, but it could not go through unless the acceptance was unanimous n both sides. Then the President put forward his proposal fr prevention of the fuel famine with which the country Is threatened. This la that the mines be reopened at once ami with what-ever labor can be procured, and that the state governments In the respec-tive states protect these workers and give assurance of the maintenance of order. This Mr. Harding set forth In a long telegram to the governors of the states, and he promised them the "prompt and full supjMtrt of the federal government whenever and wherever you find your own agencies of law, and order Inadequate to meet the situation." . . Responses by the governors were In the main highly satisfactory. That of Governor Kendall of Iowa, Is typical: As chief executive of the state of Iowa I pledge every resource of the state to the support of the program you have Inaugurated for the relief of the fuel sltuutlon." From two governors Morrison of North Caro-Un- a and Ritchie of Maryland came responses expressing outright dissent from the President's program. The former said In part: "Your position Is practically to use the power of the government, against the strikers, and they will naturally have little confi-dence In the Impartiality or fairness of soldiers or other agencies of force, however good the reason for such a stand may be." Ritchie declined to take Immediate action, say'ng he would not send the Maryland National ; Lewis added that there were more ineti out tiir.n when the strike started sixteen weeks ago and that they wojild continue to refrain from work. "In; peaceful and orderly fashion." That their methods are not always peaceful was demonstrated at Clifton-vill- e, W. Va., where a lame band of marching strikers from Pennsylvania encountered a sheriff's posse and killed the sheriff and four other men. FOR several days It looked as If the strike might be settled amicably through the negotiations In-stituted by Chairman Hooper of the labor board. Assurance was given, specifically to the maintenance of Wiif men, that the board would grunt on wage disputes, und it wuS "believed this not only would keep those workers from going out but also wduld be made applicable to the other dlxuft'eeted unions. Moreover, Presi-dent Grublo of the maintenance men said Senator Cummins, who Is chair-man of the Interstate commerce com-mittee of the senate, had advised him that "be Is going to hold hearings Im-mediately on disputed points of the transportation act, principally to ascer-tain how the law may Uj amended so thht the living wage principle would be, made clear and so that every em-ployee would be guaranteed a living wage. - ' .; , All this looked very auspicious, and then up Jumped the question of senior-ity und put the negotiations on the bllhk. 1 The shopmen Insisted that. If they returned to work their seniority rights must be restored, and the car-riers flatly refused to yield to this de-mand. Both sides set forth their arguments on this point, which have been heard before In many a strike, and as both stood firm, Chairman Hooper Issued a statement saying that the negotiations had had no result "and are now at an end." Added to the seniority barrier to peace was Jewell's demund for a national board of adjustment. Though It was believed the strike of the maintenance of way men would be averted, the numbers of the strikers were increased by several thousands In various purts of the country. There were muny disorderly Incidents, but none of great moment. The govern- - conferences. Genou and The Hague have been enough for us." PREMIER LENINE of Russia has again, this time ac-cording to a Swedish correspondent in Riga. Ills story Is that Lenlne was poisoned on a train when on his wuy to a Caucasian bathing resort and bis body wus thrown Into the River Don. An accomplice of the assassin is said to be Impersonating Ienlne ut the re-sort. Soviet olllcluls say the premier Is in Moscow and almost well. TRISH FREE STATE officials an-- 1 nounce that their forces are now In control of twelve counties but are strongly opposed ,ln Donegal, Sllgo. Galaay, Limerick and Tlpperai.r-- , Waterford, Cork, Kerry and Mayo, they assert, are In "subjection" to the Guard to the coal fields until all peaceful methods bad failed. He did not state what peaceful methods re-main to he tried. Governor Allen Of Kansas said the iiniusti!ij Couit ordered the resumption of mining and that about 50 per cent of the stute's needs was now being produced. In Illinois there ls a situation, pre-viously described, which seems to block the Harding plan In that state. Tlie law provides that no one shall work as a miner without first obtaining a certificate of competency, and no miner can get such a certificate unless he can submit evidence that he has had at least two years' experience us a miner or with a miner. Moreover, the 00.000 miners of the state nre 100 per cent organized. There bad been some chance thnt their president, Frank Farrlngton. would at the proper time push the Idea of seperate state agreement, but operators' said this hope was dispelled by the springing of the Washington plan. North Dakota Is confronted with a crisis that Is causing almost a panic among the residents, and the con-ditions there are peculiar. The state depends almost wholly on lignite from the mines within Its borders. The miners, according to Governor Nestos, quit on the national call and not be cause of any local grievances. The lignite fields, be says, have no cco-- ! noinlc bearing on the bituminous or an thraclte fields, and he believes If tlie could be placed In a separate category nut ilm (monitor pT!iilttd to deal ment's determination that the mails shall not be Interfered with had Its effect and Attorney General Daugherty sa'd they were delayed In only a few localities. He added: "It appears, however, that there Is a re'atlonsh'p between the railroad situation und the coal, strike. Whether this relationship Is' conspired or Inspired I do not care to say ut present. One thing Is cer-tain; the fault Is not ull on one sid:?." This lends strength to the belief, ex-pressed In Washington, that the policy the government will follow In dealing with the railway situation depends largely on the results of Its action In relation to the coul strike. IN CHICAGO tlie employees of the surface and elevated roads were all ready to quit work and spent much of the week awaiting the pcrmiss!i:i of their international president, W. D. Malum, who was in the east. Ills de-lay was taken to mean that negotia-tions might be resumed and the strike averted, but before this reaches the reader It Is likely the people of Chi-cago will be making their way ah .tit as best-the- can without the aid of the street cars anil elevated trains.
