Federation Advises Unions to
Return to Work.
Yorkshire. Coal Miners Today Will
Make Final Ceclslon on New
. . Piece Hate Proposal. -
LONDON, July 25. The miners' feder
ation today accepted the government's
offer of new piece rates for coal mining
and recommended that all. the miners'
unions accept the proposition and re
turn to work. The Yorkshire miners
will meet tomorrow and decide whether
they will accept the proposition. It is
believed that they will do so.
The government is leaving navy men
at the mines where the men have gone
out until work is generally resumed
and the railways are continuing their
preparations for increased services
should there be -any such settlement;
The government's piece rate offer ac
cepted by the miners' federation, ac
cording to Robert Smillie, a mine
workers' leader, coincides with the
resolution adopted by the miners' con
ference at Keswick. It removes a
jrrievance which was the direct cause
of the Yorkshire strike.
Other Grievances Remain.
There still remain other grievances
f the miners which may be the cause
of trouble. The first of these is the
omission of the government to take
eteps in the direction of the recommen
dations in the recent Sankey report for
the gradual nationalization of mines,
and the second, the government's re-
lusai to grant the demands of the
miners for an impartial expert inquiry
into decreased output, which the miners
assert is due largely to the failure of
xne mine owners to keep their mines in
proper working order.
The strike of approximately a quar
ter of a million men threatened to para
lyze many industries.
The government proposition, based on
xne interim report of the Sankev r.oa!
commission that the reduction of out
put through reduced hours would be
less than 10 per cent, carried a gov
ernment assurance that piece workers
should not suffer any loss in earnings

"Mr. Taft's suggestion for preserva

declined to discuss their talk.
The subject of reservations also
continued under discussion today at
conferences of pro-league republicans,
nnd the legal effect of any qualifica

the senate. Senator Pittman, Nevada,
h. democratic member of the foreign

The foreign relations committee
made such progress today in its read

thought it might be completed at one
more meeting. Adjournment was taken
until Monday, however, and It was de

Tomorrow Chairman Lodge will see

When the president presents the

The president paid an unexpected
call on Secretary Baker in the state,

noon. He did not communicate his
intention to White House attaches, and
crossed the street from the White

After conferring half an hour with
Sir. Baker, the president called on

Ex -i President LI regretted Japan's
dealings with China during the early
part of the war, and he used bitter
words against the Japanese demands
contained in the historical 21 articles.
He eeemed to misunderstand Japan's
declaration as to the return of Shan

Japan's sincerity on that point. Mr.
Tamamoto continued:
"Mr. Lt contrasted American conduct
in China to Japanese. The United
States was peaceful and generous and
showed in everything she does that she
is truly China's friend, with no motive
of aggression. This is why America is
