K MINES EXPECTED
Massacre Declared Likely
to Be Re-enacted. .
REGRET FOUND LACKING
Officials of Williamson County
Said to Hare No Support
in Making Inquiry.
CHICAGO. June 24 (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Mine riots in the
Heroin, 111., coal district are likely
to be resumed on the Ifeast provoca
tion and the massacre of Thursday
way be re-enacted at any moment,
Arthur S. Lytton, attorney for the
Sout)hJ-n Illinois Coal company, as
serted today upon hte return from
Mr. Lytton went into the section
on Wednesday when the first out
break occurred, visiting Carbondale,
Marlon and other towns in William
"Remorse and regret, over the
massacre of miners Thursday are
entirely lacking in Williamson
county," Mr. Lytton said. "During
my entire stay in the region and
after talking to scores of people I
never heard one person say they
wre sorry the men had been killed.
They were afraid that K might cost
tine county a lot of money and there
was a lot of speculat'ion about what
the damages "would be. -That was
the greatest concern.
Officials Lack Support. ,
"No investigation that can be
made by county official and no in
vestigation in which the evidence of
Williamson county is considered ex
clusively, will amount to anything.
The county officials cannot do it
alone and they do not have any sup
port." On the way to Marion Mr. Lytton
received several telegrams and; upon
hts arrival there the train crew
pointed him out to the populace as
the new mine superintendent, he
"I am very certain that I would
liave been the subj-ect of violence
had my real identity become known,"
Mr. Lytton said.
"I talked to substantial citizens
of the community. They are afraid
to express whatever sentiments they
may have. A man who dared, to say
that he believed the wounded men
should not have been allowed1 'to re
main unattended in the, road, was
threatened and told to nundi Ms own
business. A grocer who expressed
een'tfiments not to the liking of
miners has practically been driven
out of business, I was told."
Troops Declared Needed.
Mr. Lytton said the temper of the
people was proved by the fact that
they returned to the Herrin mine
yesterday and destroyed a safe,
"about the only thing that was in
tact." "I tried to get a man to go to
Herrin and remove thei body of Su
perintendent McDowell, which was
terribly mangledt. I could not se
cure a person to make the trip.
They all told me that: they had to
live there and that an attempt to
remove the dead body would be con
strued as unfriendly to the strikers.
"There are union men acting- as
property guards at some of the
mines down there," he said. "Who
knows at what minute this mob,
fired by its past success and' full of
the blood lust, will turn on these
men? A clash is possible at any
"Troops are needed in Wiilliamson
county and they are needed at once.
It is a situation that calls for action
by the start.."
ocrat, Montana, speaking In the
senate, described the Herrin dis-'
orders as "more horrible than those
committed by the Germans during
the war" and said they resulted
from "the domination of an organ
ized minority." '
President Harding, it was pointed
out, was in Leesburg, Va., for the
week end as the guest of B. B. Mc
Lean, Washington publisher, while
both secretaries, Davis and Hoover,'
were in Wilmington, Del., as the
guests of friends. None, it was
said, would probably return to
Washington before late tomorrow
The purposeof the visit here of
John L. Lewis, president of athe
United Mine Workers of America,
was unrevealed in both govern
ment and labor circles tonight. If
his coming here from Cincinnati ia
for a conference with government
officials,, it was believed no action
would be taken till Monday be
cause of the absence of officials
from the city.

HERRIN, I1L, June 24. (By the
Associated Press.) With the de
parture of Governor Small's special
military commission, beaded by Major-General
Milton J. Foreman, and
the announcement of Its recommen
dation that no troops be sent into
Williamson county at the present
time and that thoso national guard
units which had already been mob
ilized and held in readiness be or
dered home, the situation in the
coal fields was easier tonight.
General Foreman, after an active
day of Investigation which began
at 4 o'clock this morning, declared
that ho was satisfied that no good
purpose would toe served by calling
out troops at this time. In his
statement he declared he believed
that the disturbed condition in the
county had been permanently re
lieved and that it would not refcur.
The only thing, he asserted, which
would cause a recurrence would be
a renewed attempt to mine coal, and
-this he did not believe would be
Non-e of the old and established

UNION BLOCKS MINE WORK
Nonunion Men in Fulton County
Induced to Quit Some Flee.
CANTON, 111., June 24. (By the
Associated Press.) Swooping down
upon the strip mines of Fulton coun
ty, automobile loads of union miners
by the mere show of force this aft
ernoon had stopped the work of all
nonunion coal miners in the coun
ty. They met quietly this morning
at various points of the county and
visited every mine operating.
With the memory of Herrin in
mind and in some cases with an evi
dence of fright, the workers stopped
work immediately. Some of them
fled, but most quietly laid down
their tools. Thousands of tons of
coal have been taken from these
strip or "wagon" mines of Fulton
county each week and shipped to
Chicago and other points.

modern building structures. The
variation now is from. 45 pounds the
square foot to 150 pounds, the latter
requirement involving unnecessary
expense in construction.
The next place of meeting was
left to the executive committee, as
opinion il divided between holding
the convention at a resort, which
was tried for the first time this
year, or in a city, as has been cus
tomary. Dean Vincent of Portland led a
fight for the adoption of a policy
providing that one-half of the re
sources of the association shall be
devoted to the organization of local
associations. As a result he was
elected a member of the board of di
rectors, after he had refused to
run against another representative
from the Pacific coast.

master and a fine tribute to the city
of Portland and the generous way
