. v Heavy Vote Polled.
' St. Louis. Aug.; 1. With an ex
ceptionally heavy primary vote from
all parts of the state, Missouri men
and women today selected their par
ty nominees for United States sena
tor. Congressmen and a host of state
and county officers. This was the
first primary in which. the women of
the state have voted.
Because of the large vote and the
' length of the ticket, the counting is
proceeding slowly. The polls closed
' at 7 p. m. central standard time.
In St. Louis, police estimates indi
cate, approximately 115,000 of 247,
689 registered . votes would be cast.
The voting was exceptionally heavy
in the strong republican south side
wards, where reports are that num
bers of. known, republicans asked for
i Wets Are Active. .
It is in these wards that friends of
Senator James A. Reed have predict
ed wet republicans would vote for
Reed for -democratic nomination for
Uniftd States senator. His principal
opponent, Breckenridge Long, third
assistant secretary of 'state in the
Wilson cabinet, has the endorsement
A of the Anti-Saloon league.
Weather conditions throughout
most of the state favored a heavy
vote Rain fell in some southwest
districts, in the Ozark mountains,
but not in sufficient quantities to in
terfere with -transportation.?
In St. Louis and Kansas City the
day was clear and hot. These are
the Heed strongholds.
Political writers here figure that
Reed will need a majority of 40.000
to 50.000 in these two cities and other
Reed strongholds to overcome the
Long vote in the rural districts.

Head of U. M. W. Asks Mine

Miners on Wages at Cleve
Federal Bureau Busy
Philadelphia, Pa, Aug. 1. (By A.
P.) A joint wage conference of op
erators and miners of the central
competitive bituminous fields, to be
held in Cleveland next Monday for
the purpose of negotiating a basic
agreement designed to terminate the
present coal strike, was called today
by John L. Lewis, international
president of the United Mine Work
President Lewis also summoned
the general policy committee of the
union to meet in Cleveland at the
same time for the purpose of acting
promptly upon developments as they
may occur in the joint wage confer
ence. All men will remain on strike
until an agreement or a definite un
derstanding is reached.
Telegram to Operators.
The following telegram was sent
today to the operating interests in
the central competitive fields, which
includes western Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Indiana and Illinois:
"Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 1, 1922.
"In behalf of the United Mine
Workers, I am herewith inviting the
coal operators of the central competi
tive field to meet in joint interstate
conference at the Hollendon hotel,
Cleveland, O., at 10 o'clock a- in.
Monday, August 7, 1922, for the pur
pose of negotiating a basic wise
agreement, designed to terminate pres
ent suspension in the mining indus
try. I express the sincere hope that
the interests represented by you will
find it possible to participate in the
(Signed.) JOHN L. LEWIS.
"President United Mine Workers of
Lewis Issues Statement.
In connection with the call for the
interstate conference, President
Lewis gave out the following state
ment: . -
'"In issuing an invitation to the coal
operators of the central competitive
held to assemble in joint conference
hrCleveland on August 7, 1 am actua
ted by the highest consideration of
public welfare and , the impelling
necessity for an earlv adjudication
of the issues involved in the
bituminous and anthracite coal fields.
This 1 strike, unparalleled in its
magnitude, is now in its 18th week
and constitutes an industrial con
vulsion which menaces the financial
and social fabric of our nation.
Aside from the tremendous personal
sacrifices so bravely endured by the
mine workers the strike is exact
ing penalties from every citizen of
ouf land and is clogging the chan
nels of commerce and disturbing the
realms of finance and credit through
out the civilized world. Its effect
will continue to be felt long after
its termination and the burden will
fall heaviest upon those least able
to bear it.
Where Reason Will Predominate.
"In consideration of these "facts.
and notwithstanding the powerful
position of advantage now enjoyed
by the mine workers, we have Re
solved to again attempt to assemble
conference where passion will be
allayed and reason predominate. We
are able to fight indefinitely, but
much prefer the pursuits of peace to
the ills of industrial warfare. We
feel that the American public will
support our offer to meet at the conference-table
and will encourage the
corporate interests involved to have
their representativs present. - .
"The making of a basic settlement
in the central competitive field will
permit of an immediate following
settlement in all of the outlying bi
tuminous coal districts and should
pave the way for an immediate ad
justment in the anthracite coal fields
as well." '
"Those who, block the success of

by Traffic Out-of-Town
- Jitneys Flock to Rescue.
Chicago, Aug. 1. Twenty thou
sand motor1' men, conductors and
guards on surface and elevated lines
went on strike at 4 o'clock this
morning and the greater-part of the
working portion of Chicago's nearly
3,000,000 persons was forced to seek
As usual all rolling stock available,
including every variety of wheeled,
pullable, pushable or motorized
vehicle, was inadequate and the
brunt of the traffic fell on "shank's
mare." Thousands started early
afoot and from well before dawn,
streets and avenues leading to the
business and manufacturing districts
seethed with pedestrians. Streets in
the downtown district automatically
became one-way thoroughfares. But
even that action by the police -department
was not enough to avoid badly
tangle jams of traffic.
Jitney Buses on Job.
Hundreds of jitney buses from
surrounding towns were on the job
with the break of day having been
summoned days ago, by Charles C.
Fitzmorris, chief of police, when a
strike appeared to be inevitable.
The walkout really began at 11
last night when the surface car men
ending runs at that , hour, took their
cars to the barns. From then on,
as runs were finished, the motor men
and conductors -left off work, and
in the early hours of the morning,
the number of cars on the streets
gradually' dwindled to zero.
Negotiations have been under way
between the surface line workers and
the" surface line owners for several
davs. after costing of -an order -for a
wage reduction of approximately 17
per cent All efforts to bring about
an agreement between the company
and the workmen were announced as
failures late y Urday.

Early today carpenters went over
the elevated lines, boarding up the
entrances to the stations. The sur

cago river also were boarded up and
guards placed around the entrances.
i here was no statement irom com
pany officials as to when an effort to
resume traffic would be made, but
the Chicago Herald and Examiner in
copyrighted news story published
today said the strike meant a war
to the finish between the lines and
the employes. : The newspaper said
the advance guard of an armv of 50.-
000 potential new employes had been
in Chicago three weeks and that
plans had been perfected for an at
tempt to break the strike quickly.
City authorities have prepared for
use at any moment the entire police
force of approximately 5,000 men, and
it is understood certain Units of the
state national guard have been or-

Washington, Aug. 1. The text of
President HardWs proposal lor
ending the railroad strike was made
public at the White House today
after the cabinet session and after
the executives in conference in New
York and the striking shopmen lead
ers in Chicago had begun considera
tion of it.

This was revealed in an announce
ment from the White House giving
the basis of the executive's settle
ment plan as follows:
1. Railway managers and work
men are to agree to recognize true
validity of all decisions of the rail
road labor board and to faithfully
carry out " such decisions as con
templated by the iawr--ryr
2, The aerier will 4W all law

White House Gives no Indie
tiori of Action Planned
to Meet New Con
ditions. Careful Study Expected
Washington, Aug. 1. By A. P.)-i
President Harding had the rail strike1
problem back on his hands tonight
as a result of the refusal of the rail
way executives, at their meeting in
New .York, to accept the administra
tion' settlement plan to far as the
seniority issue is concerned. There
was no indication at the White
House as to what move, if any, the,
government planned to take in thej .
situation. It was considered prob
able that Mr. Harding would study
carefully the text of the executives'
reply and that expected from the la
bor leaders meeting in Chicago, be
fore reaching a decision.
The tbne of the replies and the1
circumstances under which they were
made, it was indicated at the White
House, undoubtedly would guard Mr.
Harding to some extent and there
was another intimation that publicity
could not always be helpful in the
difficult and delicate negotiations in
to which the administration has been
drawn by the industrial situation.
From the government ' viewpoint
the railroad strike is regarded as im
mediately serious, only because of the
existing stoppage of coal production
and there have been constant intima
tions that the administration would
be disposed to force a quick settle
ment of the railroad difficulties in or
der to cope with the coal stoppage,
even at the cost of some re-establish
ment qf the former control of rail- ,
Contrast Seniority Views.
Cabinet members and associates
of th president have sharply em
phasized the contrast between their
view of the "seniority issue" and
that taken by the railroad execu
tives as expressed in public state
ments. Public statements of rail
road .heads that the granting of the
strikers' demands for a .return of full
seniority rights would necessitate the
discharge of scores of thousands of
efficient workers hired to take their
places have been flatly denied in in
formal discussions with newspaper
correspondents, said to be exaggerat
ed and otherwise stamped as ' unre
liable. It has been further repre
sented in some government quarters
that such men as have been hired
would not generally be of a character
and capacity which would make them
suitable as permanent employes.
That this was the president's view
was further indicated by the pro
posals transmitted to the unions and,
executives meeting in that on the
crucial point of seniority rights the
proposals would give the strikers a "
more complete rehabilitation in the
service than was suggested in any of
the unofficial summaries made pub
lic in advance. The president's view
of the situation, it was said, that the
acknowledgement by the railroad
world of the supremacy of the rail
road labor board was the chief ob
ject of the government at the mo,
ment. New Laws Suggested.
The possibility that new legislation
will be sought in congress as a re
sult of the strike test of the trans
portation act which would make the
labor board's decisions bindinz and
penalize violation of them by either
employes or employers was again
suggested in official circles today.
Chairman Hoooer of the railroad f
labor board was expected to argue
for increases of the board's power be
fore . congressional committee when,
the issue Came uo.
sion has been constantly in touch
with the actual status of the strike
through its inspection division, which
cnecics up on the sufficiency of re
pairs given to locomotives and rol
ling stock and through the continu
ous reports made to the commission
by a number of men at work in all -departments
of Class 1 roads.
British Blame U. S. for
Inability to Cancel Debt
.London, Aug. 1. (By A. P., The
British government's reported deci
sion to send a circular note to the
allies and the United States in refer
ence to the war debts has been dis
cussed in political and financial cir
cles for some days. It is said there
has. been a strong division of opinion
in the cabinet over the question and
a section of, the press today sharply
criticises the -government decision. "
The act purport of the note is not
very clearly defined in the newspaper
reports, but the Morning Post says
that it "in substances places upon the
United States the responsibility for
Great Britain's inability to cancel or
to treat indulgently the debts-owed
this country by its European allies."
in his speech before the house of
commons on May 31, Prime Minister
Lloyd George declared for a com
