circuit court of appeals at Chi

Mine Workers of America, it was
Counsel for the Indiana oper
ators who also opposed the in
junction suit, will not join in the
appeal because of the walkouts
of 25,000 miners having forced
a shutdown of practically all In
diana mines and the attitude of
the operators was to let the uniou
fight out of ths case.
Formal application for the
granting of an appeal also will
be made at Chicago by the union
but this was said by counsel to
be a perfunctory proceeding that
might either be brought before
Judge Anderson or any judge of
the circuit court.
Failure to get complete sus
pension of the injunction, the
union's counsel was said to be
prepared to press for a ruling
that only Indiana operators were
affected. Aside from favorable
court action, union officials re
garded further strike develop
ments as hinging on the action of
operators in discontinuing the
check-off. President John L.
Lewis was advised that the execu
tive board of the Pittsburgh dis
trict would meet tomorrow to act
on district President R. R. Gib
bons' decision to call a strike on
Ionday. Approximately 40,000
miners would be affected, offic
ials said. Elsewhere in coal pro

Doubt as to the interpretation
of the original strike telegram
expressed by Frank Farrington,
president of the Illinois miners,
was not removed by Mr. Lewis'
answer sent today to the Illinois
leader. Farrington, who was an
anti-administration leader at the
miners' convention, accused Lewi3
of trying to "pass the buck" in
calling the strike and Lewis' re
ply was that "detailed instruc
tions" would be sent whenever
Illinois operators declare their
stand of stopping the check-off.
The answer did not disclose the
nature of the instructions, but
it was said authoritatively that
they would include a strike order.
COLUMBUS, Nov. 3. Ohio
miners who ceased work in pro
test against the federal injunc
tion abolishing the check-off sys
tem were ordered to return to
work by the executive board of

ers of America, after meeting to

trict, was instructed to notify ail

North Salem Situation
Editor Statesman: Replying to
Sunday's Statesman. Relation ot
Property and Proposed Viaduct.
After reading in Sunday'
Statesman, and noting the values
you have placed on our properties,
that are adjacent to and will be
affected by the proposed viaduct
on the Silverton road, we, the
property holders feel we have
been done a great injustice.
We notice where the Commer
cial club of this city and the realty
association are going to a BTeat
deal of expense and time, to in
duce easterners as well as others
to come to our city and invest and
make a greater Salem.
From your attitude of publish
ing values on our property, you
show that Salem is going back
ward, which, we all know to be
false, further, you discourage the
incentive for a larger and better
business in North Salem as well
as kill residence sales.
We think you should have come
end interviewed at least some of
the owners that will be affected,
if this viaduct is constructed in
Etead of jumping at conclusions.
In every instance where you
placed an appraised value, you are
ent'rely out of reason.
Quite a number of years aso
when the Southern Pacific rail
road was buying to double track
their system, they paid from
$1000 to $1200 per acre, and
surely values have not decreased
Using that as a basis, you have
not even taken under considera
tion any of the improvements on
any of the property affected, not
to say anything as to business
v th -nroDertv owners, oi
both the Silverton road and Pacif
ic highway feel that you should
n ake a thorough investigation
and make amends as far as possi
ble for the wrong you have done
W are all taxpayers and teei
that we should have some vo!ce in
matters so important to us.
We the nroDerty owners do not
feel that the taxpayers of Salem
and the state of Oreeon ned bear
the unnecessary expense or malt
ing for the Southern Pacirtc rail
road safer and better crossings.
The Silverton, road ha3 ue?n
raved for several years, yet the
Southern Pacific crossing remains
This will apply to other south
ern Pacific cross:ngs in Salem, as
If the crossings ar a menace

The impression that such a
method may not lead to an imme
diate agreement has been given
color by the apparent intention
of some other powers to pursue
an opposite course and enter the
conference setting a high figure
aj the measure ot the naval arm
ament they consider requisite to
their national safety. Japan has
indicated she would suggest the
necessity of maintaining a navy
equal to any which might enter
her sphere in the Far East, a
proportion which naval experts
say is well in excess of her pres
Naval Question First
The naval armament question
is considered certain to be the
first to occupy attention of the
conferenca, but it is not the ex
pectation of officials that the live
problems of Far Eastern diplom
acy will remain long in the back
ground. As the conference is
viewed In prospect, it is believed
that the diplomatic and armament
angles may develop simultane
ously so that Instead of having
a fixed program of consecutive
subjects the delegates will fall
into the practice of considering
this or that problem as occasion
may bring it to the front.

the children were taken from the

Af a meeting held yesteday of
a special committee appointed by
the school board. Dr. J. O. Mat-

and Miss Grace Taylor, school
nurse. Both will begin their du

Due to the fact that the school

with which to work on. there has
been no school physician or nurse.
But at the last meeting of the

appointed with power to act.
This will be the first work of
