Would Have Miners Return
to Work at Wages Received
April 1 Pending Negotia
tion of New Scale.
Prompt Answer Is Asked
Washington, July 10. (By A. P )
President Harding submitted today
to the bituminous and anthracite
operators and miners, gathered here
in conference, a proposal that the
miners return to work at the wage
scaie in existence when work was
suspended on April 1, and continue
to work on that scale until August
10, meanwhile an arbitration board
being appointed to negotiate a new
wage scale.
The commission as outlined by
t he president would consist of three
members appointed by the United
Mine Workers of America, three ap
pointed by the operators and five
representatives of the public named
by the president. The operators
and miners were understood to have
been asked to give their response to
the proposal by tonight.
The arbitration commission would
be expected to have its award ready
by August 10, but if unable to ar
range a new scale by that date the
scale which expired April 1 would
be continued from August 10 to
April 1. 1923.
In Form of Letter.
President Harding's proposals were
put before the operators and miners'
union officials in the form of a letter
and both sides in the bituminous in
dustry left the White House to con
sider them at separate meetings. The
anthracite operators and miners re
mained, however.
In outlining his proposal (or gov
ernment arbitration, President Har-
ding said:
The information has come to me
that your conference is deadlocked,
or, at the best, attempting to agree on
plans which will require extended
time to work out. I have said here
tofore that the government prefers
you who are parties to the dispute
should settle it among yourselves be
cause you best understand all the
problems involved. The government
cannot settle it for you. It will force
no man to work against his free will,
it will force no man to employ men
against the free exercise of an em
ployer's rights. The government will
nt be partisan, but the government
is concerned with coal production'suf
ficient to meet the industrial and
transportation requirements of the
country and to safeguard against a
fuel famine when winter comes again,
and it is desired to have production
resumed at once.
"Your government does desire to
be helpful."
The commission then was outlined
and the president continued:
"The commission shall investigate
exhaustively every phase of the coal
industry. It shall reveal every cost
of production and transportation. The
president will ask congress to con
fer authority for the most thorough
investigation and make appropria
tions necessary to do such work. The
commission shall make recommenda
tions looking to the establishment
and maintenance of industrial peace
in the coal industry, the elimination
or waste due to intermittency and
instability and suggest plans for de
pendable fuel supply.
"I have taken this short cut to a
'resumption of operations because I
believe it to be to the interest of the
public welfare. It is that simple form
of adjusting disputes which answers
the call of good conscience and a just
civilization. When two great forces
do not agree there must be a peace
ful way to adjustment .and such an
arbitration opens the way.
"I do not expect agreement with
out due consideration. Please take
the proposal to separate conferences.
I wish you to appraise the situation,
observe your responsibilities and then
answer this proposal as you wish to
be appraised by American public
opinion. I am speaking first of all
in the public interest, but I am like
wise mindful of the rights of both
workers and operators."

Intangibles in Tax
Reports Increase
Reports of 15 Counties Show
Approximately $3,000,000
More Than Last Year.
Lincoln, July 10. (Special Tele
gram.) With 15 counties reported,
intangible property under the new
revenue law, amounts to approxi
mately $3,000,000 more this year than
a year ago, according to a report to
day by W. H. Osborne,, state tax
Intangibles in the 65 counties a
year ago were $9,614,159. This year
they are $12,606,612. Other com
ments of Osborne on the working
of the new revenue law follow:
"The total personal value of these
15 counties for 1922 is $102,559,756 as
against $1U,747,U1I in lyzi.
"There is a uniform slump in all
the counties with respect to live
stock, grain, merchandise and per
sonal property in general.
"The real estate assessments with
a few exceptions, are coming down
to the state board at approximately
the values fixed by the board in 1921.
"The net increase in railroad valu
ations in the state as fixed by the
state board will approximate $8,000,
000. .
"It is evident that the total values
of the state this year will fall con
siderably short of 1921, but notwith
standing this fact, it is believed that
the state levy will be decreased from
that of 1921 for general purposes.
"Douglas and Lancaster are not in
cluded in the computation of the
above 15 counties. It is expected
that Douglas county will return an
increase over the 1921 -assessment,
but the press a few days ago indi
cated that the Douglas county board
had reduced dwellings in the city of
Omaha 20 per cent, which, roughly
estimated, is approximately $18,000,
000." Gothenburg Candidate
Spends Monday in Omaha
W. M. Stebbins of Gothenburg, a
candidate for the republican nomina
tion for state treasurer, spent yes
terday in' Omaha. Mr. Stebbins, a
former legislator and a member of
the constitutional convention, is
waging one of the most active cam
paigns of any candidate for a minor
state office. His candidacy is based

chant at Gothenburg, plus his public
service at Lincoln.

mission for Credit of 1,000,

Situation Is Critical
Copyright, MSI.
Berlin, July 10. To help relieve
the present financial panic, Germany
wants a 4.000,000,000 gold marks
($1,000,000,000) loan, and Secretary
Bergmann, who has just been sent to
xaris, nas dcch authorized to ask the
reparations commission for this
amount, according to reliable sources
This loan, coupled with a request
for the immediate meeting of the
Morgan bankers' committee, and ar
rangements for a moratorium con
stitute Germany's plan for stabiliza
tion. The first reports from the German
delegates at Paris, according to
members of the reichstag, give some
grounds for optimism, inasmuch as
they indicate that the French diplo
mats have taken the subicct under
consideration without protesting.
Situation Critical.
This one hopeful ray, however, has
not changed the feeling that the sit
uation is the most critical of any
since the 1918 revolution. Two ele
ments, industrial and political, are
helping to intensify the pessimism.
In the Ruhr district small groups of
coal miners are already going on a
strike instead of waiting until the
first of August, when the wage strike
begins officially. In the political
situation the opposition of the mon
archists to the government's meas
ures tor the "protection of republican
law" is growing stronger.
Chancellor Wirth has declared
himself against dissolution of the
reichstag and the calling of general
elections, declaring that the nation's
relations with foreign countries
would be endangered thereby. The
republicans, who are pressing for
elections, are assured of a republican
victory, but the chancellor, as well
as the cabinet, feel that America and
the entente feel the German situ-
tion would be more dangerous if the
general elections were called.
Deny Threats of Revolt.
The cabinet and the reichstag.
however, deny reports in America
and in entente countries that Ger
many is threatened by a red as
well as a monarchist revolution. For
the present, officials declare, there
is no danger of a red uprising. The
entry- of the independent socialists
into coalition with the administra
tion strengthens the government.
However, danger from the mon
archists persists. This could be bet
ter fought if the coalition was
strengthened by more socialist par
ties joining, which would enable the
government to clean out the monar
chists from, the army, police, militia
and courts as well as wipe out the
secret murder organizations.
A striking feature of the monar
chist situation is the fact that the
republican members of the reichstag
are coming to the meetings carry
ing loaded revolvers. All have seen
the monarchist murder list with their
names following Dr. Rathenau.
Farmer and Boy
Killed in Tornado
Vicinity of Sargent Swept by
Severe Wind and Hail
Grand Island, Neb., July 10. Tom
Rose, 35, a farmer, was killed and his
barn and poultry house wrecked by
a tornado that struck near bargent,
Neb., early tonight, according to re
ports received here. Rose's body was
found 50 feet from the wreckage of
the barn. Other members of his
family escaped injury, according to
meager details available here.
Later reports from Sargent declare
that the path of the storm was three
miles wide and 12 miles long.
This entire territory was visited
by a severe wind and hail storm, but
the storm did not reach tornado pro
portions except in a small area.
North of Sargent, however, the
storm caused a second death when
the wagon driven by Sam Wineman,
12, and his mother, overturned. The
driving hail frightened the horses
and they turned about, overturning
the wagon in a ditch filled with
water. The boy was drowned.

try. Hearings will be arranged later,
the order said, and a plan of
procedure outlined.
Though freight rates were reduced

Enters Critical Stage.'
Chicago, July 10. (By A. P.)
The nation-wide strike of railroad
shopmen entered its 10th day on
Monday, with those in close touch
regarding the struggle as entering
upon its crucial stage.
Ultimatums sent by a majority ot
the roads to their striking employes,
declaring that all seniority and pen
sions rights would be forfeited by
strikers who did not return to work
today, expired at noon.
Both the roads and the shopmen
apparently stood firm in their posi
tions. A deadlock in the dispute con
tinued. No machinery for re-establishing
peace was in motion.
The railroads generally were pre
pared to open their shops with what
ever labor was available, accepting
returning strikers where their serv
ices were offered and endeavoring to
fill vacancies with imported workers.

Lincoln, July 10. (Special Tele

safe and sane farmer that is pushing
to i ne tore is L. 11. GuNtaUon
Wliile he was at work in his Chi
cago headquarters on marketing
pronicms ne was dratted by a group
ot old triends in Nebraska to run for
the republican senatorial nomination.
For many years, whenever con
gress has needed information on ag
ricultural nroblems. Mr. Gustafson
has been called to Washington for
testimony and advice. In this way,
although a private citizen, he has
been instrumental in shaping much
legislation for the benefit of the mid
dle west. He has a wide acquain
tance among the senators, and if
elected would find himself in the
midst of old friends.
Served in Legislature.
Eleven years ago Mr. Gustafson
was sent to the state legislature from
his farm in Saunders county. Those
who served with him in the iy 1 1 and
1913 sessions remember him for the
persistent way in which he stuck on
the job. He always voted dry and
in favor of woman suffrage.
Yesterday Mr. Gustafson was vis
iting his family in Lincoln. Today
he will be back in his office in Chi
cago. It was not politics that
brought him on this flying trip, but
the business of the organized farm
ers. As president of the United
States Grain Growers, Inc., he has
spent the last few days her and in
Omaha arranging for the opening
of a terminal sales agency for this
co-operative concern.
He is not making any political
speeches, and does not intend to
make one, although he is one of the
most effective speakers among the
farm leaders. He isn't spending any
money on his candidacy, but is de
pending on the support of his friends
among the farmers and business men.
Wife Likes Country.
Mrs. Gustafson. looking on while
her husband explains his position,
says that she is glad that he is not
depending on money to put him in
office. She wouldn't want it to come
that way.

$46,000,000 worth of wheat, corn,
oats, grain sorghums and broom
corn is destroyed each year by
chinch bugs, Department of Agri

Barriers of various kinds, they as
sert, are one of the most effective
ways of controlling chinch bugs at
wheat harvest time, when they mi
grate from the small-grain fields to
the row-crop fields. Millions of the

An mdrr restraining striking rail

operation of lturlinitton railroad
simps or trains at 15 Nebraska
puling, including Omaha, was signed
by Federal Judge Woodrough yes
terday morning.
The Burlington assigned as rea
sons for the immediate necessity of
the restraining order that strikers
have "induced city authorities to ap
point as peace officers, plaintiff's
former employes who unlawfully
picket and refuse to protect company
The railroad further charges
strikers with unlawfully entering
passenger trains to search for pros,
pective strikebreakers; with threats
to maim and murder watchmen:
with assaults on trainmen engaged
in transporting mechanics to take
places formerly occupied by defend
ants; and with depredations in the
way of cutting air brake hose and
putting sand and gravel into car
journal boxes.
Prohibits all Violence. v
All these acts are in restraint of
interstate commerce, the petition al
leges. '
The order is similar to that ob
tained by the Burlington and North
western railroads in Council Bluffs
Saturday through Judge Wade, and
prohibits all violence and limits
picketing to one man at each en
trance to railway shops.
Union Pacific officials announced
they would ask for a similar order
after a conference with Judge Wood
rough. These temporary injunctions
are effective for 10 days, on the ex
piration of which a hearing is to be
held on whether a permanent in
junction will be issued.
Will Not Fight Order.
Union leaders said they would not
fight these injunctions, declaring
pickets have been instructed to use
only peaceful methods.
Despite this assurance, soldiers of
three militia companies, about 240
men in all, slept with their arms it
hand in the Council Bluffs armory
Sunday night. Dr. M. A. Tinley,
brigadier general of the Iowa Na
tional guard, declared, however, that
if the men were mobilized it was
simply a precautionary measure to
guard their own property." He added
that the mobilization probably was a
test of efficiency.
The companies were ordered to ai
semble again last night between '7
and 8.
Burlington and Union Pacific of

Few Men Back.
The Burlington ultimatum that un
less old workers return yesterday
morning before 8 they would lose
seniority rights resulted in the return
of few men, C. L. Gray, assistant to
the general manager of Burlington
lines west, admitted.
"But we're beginning to hire new
men, said Gray. single men who
went out on strike are beginning to.
drift about the country. They won't
go back to work . where they went
out, but in many cases they are will?
ing to take jobs elsewhere."
