ACTIVE BUT NOT
YET OUT OF BED
Able to Formulate Message to
Secretary Lane for Transmis
sion to Labor Conference
Washington, Oct. 21. While pres
ident Wilson was able today' to
formulate a message to Secretary
Lane, for transmission to the na
tional industrial conference, novef
fort was made, either by Read Ad
miral Grayson, his physician, or by
White House officials, to create the
impression Jthat the action was in
dicative of a decided improvement
in the president's condition.
Writing of the message, however,
was pointed to by members of the
White House staff as further refut
ing reports that Mr. Wilson was
unable to transact any necessary
business that might require his at
tention as chief executive. The sit
uation confronting the national in
dustrial conference, or which may
face it at any time through danger
of its dissolution, was considered as
constituting such a necessity.
While the president, it . was said
at the White House, was no worse
today, his condition did not show
any decided change for the better,
as might be inferred from his in
creasing activity in governmental af
fairs. Dr. Grayson made it plain he does
not propose to let the incident of
the message serve as precedent for
lowering the bars to all who may
have affairs of state to bring before
the patient The gradual improve
ment in the president's condition
has been noted, but it was again em
phasized the daily change is so
slight as to be almost imperceptible
and is to fce measured at first more
by the absence of complications
than by signs of returning strength.
KING OF BELGIANS

Springfield, III; Octv 2l.-i-Albert
of the Belgians placed a simple
wreath upon the . sarcophagus of
Lincoln a& dusk was falling here
Tuesday. -Profoundly reverent and
deeply moved, the gallant leader of
a brave people sought within the
twilight of the tomb new strength
to face the trials of the future.
His bronze face grave and his
lips sternly . set the first king of
Europe to seek lessons in America
uncovered as he stepped within the
shadow of the . tomb . bearing his
wreath of white chrysanthemums.
He bowed three times and crossed
himself as he stepped over the
threshold and laid the flowers upon
the marble slab. The king stood
motionless, his head bowed and his
lips moved as though in silent
Queen Reverent Also.
No less reverent, Queen Elizabeth,
bearing herself with the dignity be
fitting the consort of a monarch as
well as a gentleman, followed her

prince. Even the lad of 18 appear
ed to feel the solemnity of the mo
ment The stay within the tomb was
brief, the three , royal' Belgians
bowed deeply before the ashes of
the immortal American as they
stepped backward into the open air,
their eyes upon the sarcophagus.
Without preliminaries, standing in
the. shadow of the great granite
monument, the king paid tribute to
the president. No less than Lin
coln he kuew all the horrors of war,
but from the spirit of the homely
son of Illinois he asked guidance in
: "We who are here today, coming
from a far distant country, can never
forget what President Lincoln has
done," he said, "and may we find in
his noble example the strength and
firmness which make a ruler worthy,
to be dedicated in his country to
that always unfinished work of prog
ress, welfare and ideals which this
great man has so nobly advanced."

by Rejecting All Collective
Bargaining Resolutions as
Well, as Strike Intervention.
PUBLIC GROUP JOINS
HANDS WITH CAPITAL
In Adjourning Session Secre
tary Lane Says Conference
Has Produced Nothing and
Advises Several Days Rest.
Washington, Oct. 21. After a day
of uncertainty, during which Presi
dent Wilson sent to Secretary Lane,
chairman, a message of conciliation
to be used as a "last resort," the
national industrial conference to
night cleaned its slate by rejecting
all collective bargaining resolutions
as well as the labor proposal for
intervention in the steel strike.
The public group aligned with
capital on the vote against both the
original collective bargaining and
steel-strike resolutions, although the
declaration on collective bargaining
was proposed by the public 'dele
pates. Prior to the vote on the
original declaration the employers'
substitute and two new,amendments
by Thomas L. Chadbourne, chair
man o? the conference's central
committee, . met defeat. Only the
employers favored the substitute,
and labor, and capital united in the
opposition to the amendments.
Makes No Headway.
When the conference reconvenes
tomorrow it will be in, practically,
the same position as at the opening
on October 6. In adjourning the
session tonight. Secretary Lane der
clared that the conference had pro
duced nothing and advised; it to

several days while a co-ordinating
committee of not more than six
members framed a program of acr
Defeated in every point, and hav
ing lost the support of the public
group; which heretofore has been
on the side of the workers, the la
bor delegates left the conference
hall disheartened and feeling, as
some of them . said, that little could
be gained by further meetings.
However, a meeting of the group
has been called for tomorrow morn
ing and individual members will be
bound by action taken at that time.
' Should labor show a disposition
to bolt the conference Chairman
Lane undoubtedly will use the pres
ident's letter in an effort to avert
the crisis. Reading of the letter
was said to be entirely discretionary
with the chairman, who declared"
that he would not produce it unless
the situation became acute. Al
though labor may force the disclo

predicted tonight that the workers
would not withdraw. The presi

Bay State Governor -Praises
Conduct During Riot
Northampton, Mass., Oct. 21.
(Special Telegram.) In an address
given before , the Hampton county
organization of the Boy Scouts of
America during their annual field
day exercises , here Tuesday, Gov.
Calvin Coolidge of Massachusetts, a
resident of this city, paid special
tribute to a Boy Scout of Omaha
in the following words:
"During all the time the mob was
at its work in the recent disgraceful
riot at Omaha a Boy Scout, aged
12, stood at a prominent street in
tersection and directed traffic. He
stayed on the job all night and well
into the morning when nearly every
one else in the city was senselessly
giving vent to passion.
"While common citizens and of
ficials alike were utterly forgetful
of duty this lad took up a task that
no one had assigned io him merely
that he might contribute what he
could to the maintenance of order
in a topsy-turvy situation. It was
no passing whim the boy had for
a moment or two and then laid aside
because of difficulties. He was no
quitter. All night and well intothe
morning, the report says, he stuck
to this post' There was pluck and
endurance in full measure.'
' "Omaha had one citizen to be
proud of that night,' a very young
citizen -who had within him. the
stoutness of heart to stand and di
rect the surging mob instead of be
ing swept along with it to aid in its
shameful work. . The hope of Amer
ica is in the boys of that quality."
The boy to whom Governor Coo
lidge referred is Verne Joseph, 14-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. E. A.
Joseph, 3319 Grand avenue, to whom
was given a money prize by Frank
Brighton, editor of a New Rochelle.

While the full scale committees
representing miners and operators
were fighting their battles today be
hind a closed door, a strike storm
raged in the senate .and federal
agencies looked up the .law, firmly
convinced it would have to be in

told distress and suffering, with
mines shut down and less than - a
month's stock on hand to keep fires

Filing out of the' meeting place,
the miners arid operators, nearly 100
of them, went their separate ways
to' discuss the crisis, the former led
by James L. Lewis, president of the
United Mine Workers of America
and the latter by Thomas T. Brews
ter, head of the Coal Operators as
sociation. Leaders and members of
both groups are very reticent Both
Brewster and Lewis refused to dis
cuss the situation beyond saying
there had been no 'change in the
attitude of either group.
Informed of the attack on the
unions in the senate by Senator
Frelinghuysen of New Jersey and
reports from many quarters that the
government might intervene, strike
leaders said there was a bare chance
of some encouraging development
tomorrow, but that the strike order
would stand. - , , '

The treaty opposition forces, an
nouncing at last a complete agree

the senate majority, brought the.
situation to an unexpected issue by
servintr notice that their proposal
would go before the foreign rela-
tions committee tomorrow, when
the administration leaders would be
asked to go on record definitely as
accepting or rejecting it
Ultimatum Equivalent , '
Described by the majority spokes
men as n the nature of an ultima
tum, the announcement was fol
lowed by a conference on the ad
ministration side which lasted all
day but resulted in no final decis
ion Sen? tors present said that
while some of the leaders stood out, '
determiitdly against any compro- .
mise, there was an apparent dispo
sition oil th6 part of Senator Hitch
cock ana others to consider serious- .
ly the practicability of such a step.
The "eservation program as it is
to be presented to the committee
for approval was not made public,
but it was understood to embrace
nine reservations, .evolved from sug
gestions gathered fr-om many
Subjects Covered. i
The subjects said to be covered
were tin- following: - H
The right of this country to judge
whether its obligations had been
fulfilled in case of withdrawal from
the league, of nations, the unim-
paired power of congress to decide
questions of peace or war under
Article y); domestic decision of all
domestic ouestions; preservation un
affected of the Monroe doctrine; re
fusal to be a party to the Shantung
settlemnt; equalization of voting'
power inthe league; congressional
selection of American representa
tives in the league; limitation of the
powers of such representatives and
those on international commissions,
and nullification of the right of the
international labor conference to
challenge the eligibility of American
repres-utatjves in international la
bor bodies. ; . .
One disturbing element in this
program for the administration lead
ers was the fact that they had heard
the .article 10 reservation followed
closely the language of one pre
sented in the senate duing the day
by Senator McCumber, republican,
North Dakota which in turn was
almost the exact language which
President 'Wilson announced in his
Cheyenne Wyo. address would be
regarded by him !s a rejection
of the treaty."
Republicans Back It
Behind the majority's proposals,
it is declared by their sponsors, will -stand
all of the 49 republicans and
at least six democrats leaving as a
maximum 41 democrats opposing
them. In 'these circumstances the
administration managers were told .
their only hope of defeating the
program was to vote against ratifi
