extended until they covered the val

which lie on the sooth side of, the
Platte, extending east to a point
south of Lexington. The remainder

In any event the Greek note de

Rail Strike
Man in Close Touch With
Situating Says Peace Terms
Reached in Shopmen's
Ratification Is Assured ,
Chlcaco. lulv 30 fBv A. P.,
rPeace terms already have been agreed
I to In tht country-wide railwal strike
and formal ratification haa been as
sured through President Harding's
efforts, it was asserted 8unday night ,
by a man in close official touch with
the aituation. ' . r
AU that now remains befors the
strike which hat coat the workers up
ward of 140,000,000 in wages puses
into history, it waa sasertcd, was the
formal endorsement of the terms of
settlement by the railway executives,
meeting in New York and the strike
leaders who will convene in Chicago
at the same hour, Tneaday.
, Omaha Ba Iteaa Wlr.
Washington, July 30. The admin
istration looks confidently to the pres-
eat week to mark the passing of the
industrial crisis.
Conferences already called or likely
to be called in both the rail and coat
strikes will have before them plans
which it is believed will furnish t v
basis of settlement;
Feice in the rail strike lunges upon
the outcome of the conference in
New York of the railroad executives
and in Chicago of the shopmen.
The way to end the coal strike may
be found at conferences which Presi
dent Lewis of the mine workers and
a peacelully inclined taction ot tne
bituminous operators are endeavor
ing now to arrange.
Flaw in Outlook.
The chief flaw in the outlook Is
the continued attitude of a group of
eastern railroad executives, headed by .
President Loree of the Delaware Sc
Hudson railroad, who are unwilling
to yield an inch in their stand against
restoring seniority rights to the strik
ing shopmen. '
Admission was made in official cir
cles that some anxiety is felt that
Loree may, be able' to swing a sum j
cient number of executives into line
against acceptance of the president's
plan to block the way to settlement.
Loree's stand against, compromise
on the seniority issue has won somt -support
among other rail execu
tives and considerable sympathy
among large employers all over tht
country. J O - '
Outlook Optimistic.' -
However, the general feeling in."
-Washhiatort is that-the-rail execu
tives in the end will ' yield. Mr.
Harding had repeatedly ' asserted,
that the public interest is para
mount in the industrial situation
and he is understood to have taken
the position that the seniority is
sue, however important, does not.
compare with the necessity, for set
tling the rail strike and keeping
the railroads running. :t
If conferences during the coming
week do not show the road to settle
ment of the coal strike, thi period ot
marking time by the federal govern
ment in this phase of the industrial
situation will come to an end. Set
tlement of the rail strike would also
place the administration in a better
position to deal with the ioal situs-.
tion. ; '. ' r ' ,
It is frankly admitted W official
circles that the president's "invita
tion" to the coal operators to reopen
their properties and resume the prot
duction of coal has not led to any
very encouraging results, and that
unless the contending factions soon
come together voluntarily,' some
more effective means of intervention
by the federal government must be
found. The principal lack Of success
of Mr Harding's invitation plan is .
to be found in the weekly report of
the geological survey.'which showed
that the gain in production amounted
to only 200,000 tons for the week.
