the leaders in the fight for the in

had been sent to all supporters of
the amendment to return here Tues

Chairman Kelley, in charge of the
bill, would insist on a separate vote
on the amendment. Under the rules,
one-fifth of the members on the
floor would have to stand up for a
roll call in order to obtain it.
Some of the members supporting
the committee bill were doubtful
whether the vote yesterday of 177
to 130, could be changed if another
poll was taken. Mr. McArthur de

were satisfied a new test would show
an even wider margin in favpr of it.
There was no accurate count as to
how the democrats divided on the

Men Back to Nonunion

Springfield, 111., April 17. "The
miner is not responsible for the ills
f throat industry and it Js poor
industrial leadership "that" carT 'cSv
ceive industrial improvement . only
through-a debased manhood and a
pauper level of existence," said John
L. Lewis, president of the United
Mine Workers of America, in an
address delivered before the Springfield-Midday
Luncheon club. M,r.
Lewis spoke in part as follows:
"The present strike in the anthra
cite and bituminous coal industry
is the natural sequence of the organ
ized effort of the coal operators to
beat the miners backward to the
level of subsistence obtaining in the
nonunion fields. The miners will
not retreat. The -human values in
volved are of infinitely greater con
sequences than the profit margins of
"Miner Not Responsible."
, "The miner is not responsible for
the ills of the coal industry and it
is poor industrial leadership that can
conceive industrial improvement only
through a debased manhood and a
Dauoer level of existence. Approxi
mately 5,000,000 of the population of
our nation are directly dependent on
the mining industry and it is God's
Will that the children of the mining
camps be fed, xlothed and sheltered
to the same degree as those of other
The principles at issue in this great
strike will not be compromised by
the mine workers. .The dream of the
coal operators that the mine work
ers will engage m a multiplicity of
conferences and negotiate, independ
ent district agreements will not ma
terialize. The union will not dissi
pate its strength or betray its mem
bers by such tolly, the problems
of the coal industry are national in
scope and organic in nature.
Claims Issue Is National
"When the present strike is ended
the issues must be settled in a na
tional way. Either the base must
be fixed by the 'central competitive
field in the manner heretofore cus
tomary, or a national joint confer
ence must be assembled with joint
representation of each producing
field in the bituminous coal industry.
"The competitive relationship of
each producing district would then
be considered and the interest of
each be fully protected. An agree
ment thus settled would apply in all
districts whether union or nonunion
and would be a contribution to the
stabilization of industry. Such a
plan would doubtless be met with
wails of protest from . those whose
special interests might be affected
but the logic and sound judgment
of ?uch a . plan would appeal to
thoughtful people." :

It is at the' request of Epperson
that the committee isto visit his

Head of Farmers'
Benjamin Marsh Says Whole
Schefne Is to Permit
Manufacturers to Con
Omaha Bc Iail Wlrr.-
Washington, April 16. "The
tariff bill reported by tbc senate
finance committee is the worst of
the many gold bricks hajided farm
ers by" the present "administration,1
declared- Benjamin C. . Marsh,
managing director of the farmers
National, Council, ' in a statement
"If the drafters of the tariff bill
really wanted to give farmers the
same help as they do manufactured
products, the duty on wheat would
have been placed at $1 a bushel in
stead of 30 cents;, on green hides at
least 6 cents a pound instead of
cents a pound; on eggs in the shell
at least 35 cents instead of 8 cents
a dozen, and on wool 45 cents to
50" cents instead of 33 cents. Of
course, wool being a staple product
in the home state of President Har
ding (Ohio) it fared a little better.
"The whole scheme of the tariff
bill as reported in the senate is evi
dently to permit high priced manu
facturers to continue the same prof
iteering which they carried on dur
ing the war. Whatever the text of
rThe tariff bill, it is clear that the
duties levied on manufactured prod
ucts are on the American basis cost
o production, while those levied on
agricultural products are on the
basis of foreign cost of production.

be the goat fpr the profiteers.
