Oregon, one ot. the leaders in the fight for the in crease, announced that telegrams had been sent to all supporters of the amendment to return here Tues day.

No Retreat for Miners, Asserts Chief in Speech Lewis Declares Effort to Beat Men Back to Nonunion Level Was Cause of Strike. 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 the operators. "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 citizens. 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." : Fifteen Hundred People Shake Hands With Harding Washington, April 16.

Hf The JtwarlaM frti. Genoa, April 16. Then Russian delegate Mere tW to answer definitely yet or no a to whether they will put into practice the con dition of the Cannes resolution and the guarantee contained in the Lon doit experts' report, according to French communique issued subse quent to the adjournment of a lengthy meeting between the allied leader and the Russian. It seemed impotniblc. said the French statement, to get anythiu? tangible from the soviet delegates, who astonished the allied representa tive by demanding 50,000,000.000 gold roubles a the amount due Rus sia because of foreign intervention. This it two and a half time greater than the amount the allies claim from Russia. Italians Not Pleated. An Italian statement regarding the meeting was more optimistic. It pointed out that the subjects dit cussed are more vast in scope than was dreamed of when the Genoa conference originated. "Thi," says the statement, "it an attempt to bring about the coexist ence in the world of finance, econ omy and commerce, of two opposite regimes capitalism and commun ism. This morning the experts were ntniffolitic in a kingdom of figures and in the afternoon the allied lead ers took the discussion hack into the kingdom of principles.'

McAdoo to Enter Race for Presidency, Rumor n Washington, April 16. Former President Wilson's letter repudiating the message given to the New York Hemnrratic dinner bv Joseph P.' Tumultv and the 'Consequent break between Mr. Wilson and his leng time devoted secretary are regarded here by some democratic leaders as certain muicauuns umi ""' - McAdoo is olannine to become a candidate for the democratic presi dential nomination in 1924. Mr. Wilson's " repudiation of the message to the Jefferson day ban quet was actuated, in the opinion of leading democrats, not because of the wording of the message oe livered by jSk, Tumulty as coming from Wilson, Thut because of the im- nression created that it was an en dorsement for the renomination of James M. Cox. Mr. Wilson, his friends say, is not for Cox for another nomination and does lean favorably toward the nomination; of his , son-in-law and former secretary of the treasury. who was runnerup to Cox at San Francisco in 1920. Party leaders insist that McAdoo is quietly man euvering for the nomination next time and that this was one of the reasons for the recent removal of his residence from ; New York to Cal ifornia.

It is at the' request of Epperson that the committee isto visit his county and investigate good roads conditions there.

The committee will give every man, woman and child- with idea or a kick on road building an oppor tunity to present them at a public hearing' at the courthouse and also will view the federal roads of Clay county given such a black eye by Epperson.

Head of Farmers' Council Scores Tariff Measure Benjamin Marsh Says Whole Schefne Is to Permit Manufacturers to Con tinue Profiteering. 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 made public. "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.
