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." Two Candidates File for Kinkaid's Term Lincoln, July 10. (Special.) D. M.

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 commissioner. 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."

TUESDAY, Genrriv to Hies ;v .or Loan Secretary Bergmann Author ized to Ak Reparations Cora mission for Credit of 1,000, 000,000 Cold Marks. 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 here. 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 Storm. 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. I. C. C. to Investigate Express Rates Over U. S. Washington, July 10.

Though freight rates were reduced July 1 generally 10 per cent from the highest levels reached during the war. express charges have been maintained substantially unchanged since 190.

Although warned by the road that they must return to work by this morning or J lose their seniority rights 1,800 Bur lington strikers stood out today. Lone before the whistle summons, the striking shopmen formed a great ring about the shops and began a silent circling of the plant area. Every street and approach to the shops was cut by the moving ring. The marchers were not more than 20 feet apart and links in the chain in some instances shortened to five feet. No one attempted to pass the cordon. Members of the local company of the Iowa National guard in uniform have been drifting towards the armory in Council Bluffs all morn ing.

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.

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.
