Harding Urges Operators
And Miners To Settle
Differences or Govern'
ment Will Act.
Washington, July 1. Miners
and operators numbering about
fifty and representing both the
bituminous and anthracite coal
fields in which work has been
suspended since April 1 met at the
White House today with Pres
ident Harding in an endeavor In
stttuted by the government to
find a basis or negotiating a set
tlement of differences.
President Harding opened' the
conference in executive session
with an address to the two parties
speaking only about ten minutes
The conference then was ad
journed to a meeting room in the
interior department and there con
tinued in executive Bession.
Conference Organizes
A. M. Ogle, president of the Na
tional Coal association who
representative of the bituminous
operators was elected chairman
and William Green, general secre
tary-treasurer of the United Mine
Workers was elected secretary.
President Harding In convening
the conference advised both pari
ties to arrive with' measureable
promptness at an understanding
"for your mutual good and the
country's common good."
The president declared the
present was no time for the
"militant note of the radical" and
reminded the conference that
"toleration, fairness, the spirit to
give and take and finally a
sense of the larger obligations to
the public are essential to success
ful conference.
Coupled with his appeal and
admonition, the president uttered
what was regarded as a warning
when he said that if the operators
and miners could not "Bettle this
matter in a frankk recognition
mutually of your Interests then
the larger public Interest must be
asserted In the name of the people
where the common good Is the
first and highest concern."
"We wish you who best know
the way to solution to reach It
among yourselves in a manner to
command the sanction of Ameri
can public opinion," the president
"Failing in that, the servants of
the American people will be called
to the task in the name of Amer
ican safety and for the greatest
good of all the people."
Another pointed statement In
the president's address was:
"Labor has the right, capital
has the right and above all ihese,
the American people have the
right to be freed from the recur
ring anxxleties (strikes) no mat
ter what the causes are. That free
dom must be established."
Since President Harding's call
for the conference , to consider
possible methods for settlement of
the controversy, it has been In
dlcated by administration officials
that it was the desire of the gov
ernment that the meeting should
be held above the controversial
issues involved and rather lay ths
basis and safeguard the way for
another conference fully author
ized to deal with these It was
reiterated as the administration's
purpose today to give the partici
pants free opportunity at the start
to attempt to work out their own
plans for a settlement.

the conference, half are miners

driving the popular priced car.
He must nave oeen short of sight
for he drove right past the "stop"

back pleasantly when the officer

for him to- halt. Too, there was

territory are already sending out
distress calls for pickers to help
them save their crops and offers
to advance the prevailing picking

made by many today.
With the continuance of' the
hot weather the berries are rip

that they will lose a big jpart of
the crop if pickers are not secur

Morale of Anti - Treaty
Forces Believed Broken
With the Capture of
Two Leaders Friday.
Cork, July 1. (By Associated
Press.)- There seems good reason
to believe that the republican
forces are mobilizing this evening
preparatory to a move to take
possession of the ctiy and occupy
strategic points. Several buildings.
including the general postoffice,
are indicated as likely to be taken
over by the insurgents.
Dublin, July 1. (By Associat
ed Press) The provisional , free
state government turned today to
the task of clearing out the re
malning nests of insurgents, fol
lowing the fall of the four courts,
the chief stronghold of the anti
treaty forces
The surrender this morning of
more than 60 rebels who had
been holding out in the Capel
street area was hailed as evidence
that the morale of the republi
cans had been weakened by the
yielding of Rory O'Connor and
Llam Mellowes, two of their
strongest fighting leaders.
Surroond Insurgents
The plan of action against the
irregulars, who have established
themselves in hotels and other
premises, will probably assume
the form of an encircling move
ment with intense fields of act
ion in certain areas.
The total casualties in the
three days fighting have not yet
been ascertained, but it is esti
mated they will not greatly ex
ceed 100, the fatalities being
placed at about 40
The next area to receive atten
tion will be the Sackvllle district
probably, several blocks east of
the Four Courts, where the re-
Publicans last night took over a
post office and the Gresham
Granville nd Hammans hotels.
De Valera Leads Hebela
It is reported on good authority
that Eamonn De Valera Is in per-
a0nal charge of the Sackville area
for the republicans, who are re-
norted to be makine elaborate
preparations to repulse any at-
tack, even breaking through the
side walls In order to connect all
the buildings. This morning the
windows bristled with rifles.

Soviet Envoys Ask Credits
Totaling One Billion Six
Hundred and Twelve
Millio nGold Dollars,
The Hague, June SO. (By As
sociated Press) The sum of 1,
612,000,000 gold dollars Is the
total amount of credits the cen
tral soviet government would
like from the powers to inaugur
ate the Immense task- of recon
structing Russia.
Expressions of astonishment by
the European experts were voiced
when Maxim Litvinoff, Russian
spokesman, announced the figure
today. Further details were asked
by the experts and these will be
presented later in writing.
Purposes Outlined
M. Litvinoff divided the credit
requirements into four headings
first, transport, including rail
way, water and motor transport
and the repair of ports and roads
$525,000,000; second, agricul
ture, Including irrigation, re
placement of seeds and model
stock farms, fertilizers, machin
ery and motor tractors, $462,-
000,000; third, industrial recon
struction, including textile, metal
lurglcal and timber Industries,
$375,000,000; fourth, commer
cial and bank credits $250,000,-
The oil Industry was not pro
vided for in the estimate because
it would be possible to lease oil
areas to concessionaries who
would furnish their own capital
M. Litvinoff said.
Original Sum Cut
After declaring that Russia's
pre-war wealth of 75 billion gold
dollars had been reduced through
war and foreign intervention by
five twelfths, M. Litvinoff point
ed out that the estimates submit
ted today had been cut two
thirds from the original figures.
They represented Russia's ur
gent needs and would permit res
toration of her economic life to a
point where imports and exports
could be balanced and interest
could be paid on loans. .
Medford, Or., July 1. Answers
to the action of Benjamin F. Lin
das,- attorney of Medford, who
brought suit recently in circuit
court for $25,000 for alleged dam
ages as the result of an affidavit
alleging that Mr. Lindas sought
but was denied admission into the
Ku Klux Klan here, were filed
Friday in circuit court by John
Jeffrys, attorney of Portland, act
ing for the organization, and H
E. Griffiths, one of Its kleagles
stationed in this city.
Interest In this case is further
enhanced by the fact that late
yesterday Mr. Lindas, who has
been a bitter foe of the local klan
for months past, announced his
formal candidacy for mayor.
Mr. Griffiths In his answer as
serts that the "affidavit was and
is true," and further alleges that
Mr. Lindas "seeks public notori
ety" In filing the suit and also
"political power and prestige
among the opponents of the Ku
Klux Klan." ,
-The Ku Klux Klan, as an or
ganization filed a short answer,
stating that the seat of the order
is at Atlanta, Ga., and that there
Is no branch in this county, hence
no legal action Is possible except
in Georgia.
It has long been common taie
here that Mr. Lindas intended to
run for mayor at the fall election,
hence when his nominating peti
tion, signed by 30 citizens, and
platform were filed the action
created no surprise. He is the
first candidate to aspire for the
mayoralty to succeed Mayor Gates,
who many months ago announced
that he would not seek nor accept
a re-election. j

there may be a duel meet with the
Simpson college debaters. Their
first team will be traveling west
at the same time the Willamette
men will be going east. It it can
be arranged, their traveling team
will meet the home team here the
same evening that the Bearcats
meet their home team at In

that the local team will be able to
meet the University of Pittsburgh
team at some eastern point. They
will be making their western tour
at the same time that the locals
will be eastern bound.

strike was felt. Between 200 and
300 men left the Cedar Hill shops
of the New Haven road in Con

out of the Boston & Albany shops
at Springfield, Mass.; and reports
from Worcester and Boston were

and apprentices of the crafts. The
walkout means vie suspension of
equipment repairs. The effect on
