Central Field Practically Dis-
m.IJ no Ditinn Unit hu
Action at Joint scale
Committee Meeting.
Cleveland. Aug. 19. Miners at
tending a conference of the joint
scale committee of the central com
petitive field held a policy meeting
today following failure last night of
the joint conference to agree on the
miners' demands for increased
wages and adjourned sine die after
voting unanimously that miners in
each of the four states' concerned
will seek to make a supplemental
and' separate agreement with opera
tors in the field. This practically
disrupts the central field as a basing
Inasmuch as the joint conference
was called by President Wilson,
operators and miners sent separate
telegrams to the president advising
him of the failure to reach an agree
ment. t
The telegram sent by the opera
tors was a statement of the fact that
the joint conference had failed to
idjtrst the controversy after five
days of almost continuous confer
ence. Hope for Settlement.
The minetf' telegram was opti
mistic in tcme, saying the miners
would endeavor to make separate
and individual agreements with the
operators in the various states.
"We have found it' impossible to
reach an agreement with the coal
operators of the central competitive
field bearing upon the issues in
volved," the miners' telegram, signed
by President Lewis, said:
"There is no controversy affect
ing any principle, but merely a dif
ference of opinion as to what con
stitutes an inequality and the degree
to which it should be adjusted.
"As a consequence, the point inter
state conference adjourned last night
without decision. While this, civ
rur.jstance mav be regarded as un-i
fortunate, I am of the opinion that
the-e is no necessity for any public
"There are reasonable grounds
for the belief that the questions at
issue between the operators and
miners may yet be harmonized
through the instrumentality of
agreements which may be consum
mated in the individual coal produc
ing districts without inconvenience
to the public. The sincere efforts
of the representatives of the mine
workers will be promptly exercised
to the application of this policy."
Miners Refuse Offer.
The operators' telegram, signed
by Michael Gallagher, chairman, de
clared the operators proposed to ad
vance the day and monthly men to
the equivalent of that granted the
tonnage men :n machine mining, but
that the miners refused to accept
and demanded an advance of $1.50
per day, "which, if granted, would
have created further inequality to"
the disadvantage of the tonnage
"The operators then proposed,"
the telegram said, "that the question
:n dispute be submitted for final set
tlement to a commission, as suggest
ed in the report of the bituminous
coa! commission. This proposition
was also rejected by the miners.
Finding ourseives hopelessly dead
locked, we reptet to report that we
were compelled to adjourn sine die."

Boston, Aug. 19. Charles Ponzi,
discredited prophet of high finance,
again was the object of the attention
of crowds today. He was taken be
fore a federal commissioner for a
hearing on charges that he used the
mails to defraud. Ponzi waived ex
amination and was taken back to
jail in default of $25,000 bonds.
Trial was set for September.
In the throng which filled the
court room was John S. Dondero,

creditors several days ago. He

Ponzi told deputy United States
marshals his downfall was due to
withdrawal of support by a man
prominent in the city's financial
circles. If given his-liberty tinder
guard for 60 days, Ponzi asserted
he could make good dollar for dol

Question of Supreme
Court Vacancy Is Up
To Attorney General
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 19. (Spe
cial.) Secretary of State D. M.
Amsberry is preparing to ask At
torney General Clarence A. Davis
for an official opinion as to whether
the vacancy caused by the death of
the late Supreme Judge A. J. Corn
ish can be filled at the general elec
tion this fall.
Mr. Amsberry has expressed his
own private opinion that the non
partisan judiciary ballot law makes
no provision for filling a vacancy
except through the primaries and
by appointment at the hands of the
governor until the next general elec
tion. Judge Cornish died April 19, one
day before the primaries this year,
and too late to nominate primary
candidates. The governor several
days later appointed District Judge
L. A. Flansburg as his successor. It
was the understanding at that time
that Jude Flansburg would serve
two years.
Supreme Judge S. H. Sedgwick
died during the Christmas holidays
last year, and District Judge George
A. Day was appointed in his place,
fudge Day and William C. Dorsey,
supreme court commissioners, were
candidates at the April primaries for
this vacancy, and since under the
nonpartisan ballot system two can
didates are nominated at the pri
maries, both are in the race for the
election to fill the vacancy in No
vember. Banks Receive Orders to

tion at the close of business Mon

Senator Harding Is
Opposed to Autocracy
(Coot in aed From rage One.)
Senator Harding after commenting
on his early legislative impressions,
"for public men to forget the oath
of office. Somehow there has been
a tendency of late to ignore this
obligation. It is not easy for me
to forget the oath I assumed when
I entered the senate It was the re

me in opposing the unreserved rati

covenant as written and be faithful
to that oath. ,
Senate Saved Nationality.
''I do not hesitate to say that the
senate saved American nationality

proposed to surrender it. The sen

future place in the activities of the

again. We need it to save Amcr
ica. It submerged itself for the pe
riod of the war and surrendered to
the executive because we wanted to
marshal all of oiir forces and re
sources under one authority, but we
are at peace today and we need res
torations of constitutional govern
ment as much as we need restora

"If a republican administration is
chosen, you can be certain that the
senate theoretically, if not actually,
will have something to say about the

part of the house, because that body

"This thought may well be ap
plied to the proposal that this re
public can subscribe to Article 10
and enter the league of nations and
submit to the rule of a council of
foreign powers, on the theory that
only congress can make the declara
tion of war. It is true only congress
can make the declaration, just as it
is true that only congress can make
an appropriation of money to carry
out a covenant with a foreign power,
but if this nation agrees to accept
the decision of a foreign council,
then we should be guilty of a bad

hold aloof from international rela

Grant Packers Extension
Of Time'to Dispose of Yards
Washington, Aug. 19. A plan un
der which the big five packers
would dispose of their stock yard
interests has been submitted to the
Department of Justice for approval
and probably will be filed in the
District of Columbia supreme court
by August ol.
The plan was drawn up in accord
ance with a decree entered in the
local courts early in the year and
under which the packers within two
years must disassociate themselves
from unrelated lines of business and
confine themselves to the wholesale
meat trade.
The plan for selling the stock yard
interests was to have been filed to
day, but the court extended the
time until August 31 in order that
the Department of Justice might
have time to examine it thoroughly.
The decree agreed to by the
packers and the Department of Jus
tice was the result of a compromise
between the packers and the govern
ment growing out of the anti-trust
action begun by the Department of
Justice last summer.

Unable to Account for Ap

On Beaches.
By The Auwiated PreM.
New York, Aug. 19. The mys
terious yellow phials containing t
while substance, identified as cal
cium hydroti'iorine, used to purify
water, which have been appearing
in the surf for two weeks, continued
today to be cast up on the beaches
ne:sr here.
Boys are enjoying a belated
Fourth of July, combined with a
miniature trench warfare.. "Bomb
ing raids" are popular, because the
phials explode with a bang when
crashed against stones. The distin
guishable smell ol chlorine gas, re
leased when the "bombs" are broken,
add the thrill ot a gas attack.
A chemical analysis of the con
tents of a phial today by an army
officer here confirmed previous
analysis. The officer said there wa$
evidence of decomposition, which
caused the explosion. He urged that
thi phials be d:stroyed, as they
were not exactly safe playthings.
1 he source of the phials is still
mystery. Officers' of the army
po"t of embarkation said there had
been no shipments of the chemical
to Europe sim:e the war. Neither
s there any reco'd ot a shipmeeM

Nebraska State Law Requires
Advance Certification to
Get Names on
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 19. (Spe-1
cial.) If chairmen of national po
litical parties should overlook certi
fying their presidential candidates
to Governor McKelvie 30 days be
fore the November election, their
names "will not go on the official
ballot in Nebraska.
Such certification unknown in
any other state is required under
the law passed by the 1917 legisla
ture, authorizing the substitution of
the names of the actual presidential
candidates instead of the party elec
tors, according to- Secretary of
State D. M. Amsberry.
State committeemen in Nebraska
will be notified by the secretary of
state of the provisions of the new
law in force for the first presidential
election since its promulgation.
Tbe secretary of state says he has
no 'authority under the law to put
any nationaj candidates on the ticket
who are not certified to him by the
governor within the required time.
The law calls for a gubernaoriai
proclamation on the subject 30 days
before election.
No official steps have been taken
to get on the state ballot the names
of candidates outside the demo
cratic, the republican and the pro
hibition party. The drys got their
ticket nominated at the primaries
by having the names written in at
the last moment.
The secretary of state has re
ceived a formal notice from Eva

of the state socialist party, that a
mass convention has been called in
