Washintrton. Aug. 30. Govern
ment operation of the Ration's rail
roads is the aim of two million or
ganize! railroad workers. Secretary
Davison of the international associa
tion of machinists frankly declared
here today in an analysis of the rail
road situation. The transportation
law gives' the government authority
to take over the railroads in case of
a strik-j or other emergency, accord
ing to Davison.
"All railroad workers cf the coun
try now are taking a strike vote,"
"The private managers cf the
roads, on their side, are trying to
force a strike with the hope of mak

Government officials today claimed
not to be anxious over the possibil
ity of a railroad strike. The rail un
ions have taken strike votes before
without a walkout, they pointed out.
The present strike vote, they be

ers more authority in negotiations
with the roads which ' they hope to
bring about. '

The state house dome is closed to
all visitors. This was the order is
sued Tuesday by the board of edu
cational lands and funds. The order
will disappoint thousands of state
fair visitors but the board deems it
best to enforce the order at this time,
not because of any danger of the
structure tumbling down, but merely
because of the danger of accidents
incident to crowds trying to ascend a
winding stairway. To properly care
for the visitors it will be necessary
to hire an extra man or keep a regu
lar janitor on duty at the entrance
to the dome and to limit the number
of visitors at one tinje to twenty.
The board believes this attempt
would cause more trouble than the
absolute closing of the dome. So it
is absolutely closed. It will no long
er be possible for visitors to go to
The opinion of head janitor Beekly
that the dome leans toward the sun
ny south and the blowing down of a
false pillar at the bottom of the dome
did not influence the board.

The proclamation was issued by
the president after conferences with I
Secretary Weeks, General Bandholtz i
and Major General Harboard. assis- j
tant chief of start". A West Virginia;
delegation was also in conference
with the president and Secretary'
Weeks and strongly urged immedi-1
ate despatch of troops.
The intimation was given by ad
ministration officials that if troops
were sent there would be an ade
quate force, and that "there would
be no child's play.
Text of Proclamation
The proclamation follows:
"Whereas, it is provided in the
constitution of the United States
that the United State3 shall protect ,
each state on application of the'
legislature, or of the executive,!
against domestic violence; and.
"Whereas. by the law of the
United States in pursuance of the
above it is provided that in all cases
of insurrection in any state or of"
obstruction to the laws thereof, it,
shall be lawful for the president to
call forth the militia of any other!
state or states or to employ such part j
of the land and navi.l fores of tho(
United States as shall be judged
necessary for suppressing such insur
rection and caning the laws to be;
dulv executed; and, I
"Whereas, the legislature of West'
Virginia is not now in session, and
the executive of said state has made
due application to me for such part
of the military forces of the United
States as may be necessary and ade
quate to protect West Virginia and
the citizens thereof against domestic
violence and to enforce due execu
tion of the law?, and.
"Whereas, it is required that when
ever it may be necessary in the judg
ment of the president, to use the mil
itary forces of the United States for
the purpose aforesaid, he shall forth
with, by proclamation command such
insurgents to disperse and retire
peaceably to their respective homes
within a limited time;
"Now, therefore, I. Warren G.
Harding, president of the United
States, do hereby make proclamation
and I do hereby command all per
sons engaged in said unlawful and
insurrenctionary proceedings to dis
perse and retire peaceably to their
respective abodes on or before twelve
o'clock noon, the. first day of Sep
tember, 1921. and hereafter abandon
said combinations and submit them
selves to the laws and constituted
authority of said state.
"And I invoke the aid and co-op
eration of all good citizens thereof
to uphold the laws and preserve the
"In witness whereof. I have here
unto set my hand and caused the
seal of the United States to be affixed."
While some disquieting reports
came today from West Virginia of
ficials, there was apparent a feeling
among government officials that the
people commanded by the president
to return to tlu ir homes would do so,
and that Thursday noon would see a
restoration of order, which would
make the presence of troops unneces
sary. At the same time, however.
there was a firm determination by
the administration to meet any seri
ous situation that might arise.
Denver, Aug. 30. Oliver Shoup,
; governor of Colorado, today directed
letters to sixteen western states ask
ing them to join with Colorado in
efforts to bring about a reduction of
railroad rates. Late this week Gover
nor Shoup also announced, the trans
portation committee of Colorado,
named last March to attempt to bring
down the cost of living by a reduc
tion of railroad rates, will file a com
plaint with the interstate commerce
commission asking the commission
to re?cind its order of August 2U,
1920. which granted the railroads an
increase in fares:
The petition also asks that the
rates in effect prior to August 26,
1920, compel the railroads in case
they wish an increase in rates, here
after to show that they are "hon
estly and efficiently managed."
The governor has asked for the
governors of the following states to
join with Colorado in the petition:
Washington, Oregon. California. Ne
vada. Idaho. Montana, Utah. Arizon.
Texan. Oklahoma. New Mexico. Wy
oming, North Dakota. South Dakota.
Nebraska and Kansas.
In his letters to the governors, the
governor of Colorado states the rea
sons that compelled him to authorize
the proceedings before the interstate
commerce commission in the follow
"Transportation charges are so vi
tal a factor in the commerce of the
country that it does not seem possi-1
bio for a full resumption of normal!
businsss to occur unless every impor-j
tant industry is enabled to distribute!
and market upon transportation!
charges which the traffic can pay:
and still show a profit. Our position j
is that reduced rates will produce in-
creased traffic and .should conse-'
quently produce increased revemise." j

Korea considered as "one of the most
vital matters to be adjusted" by the,
disarmament conference according to"
Doctor S. Ithee, head of the Korean
mission, who returned today after a
year in the orient.
"I have'returned because the Kor
ean case will necessarily be consid

armament, then the Korean question
is one of the most vital matters to
be adjusted. It is international.
"Freedom, independence and the
'open door' in Asia, for Korea is the
breakwater against the tide of Ja
panese imperialism and autocracy."
