I., April steam ship Ontario of the Merchants and Miners' line is afire off the coast be- tween Block island and Montauk point.

Philadelphia, April hundred and seventy-five thousand idle authra- cite mine workers and numberless thousands of other interested persons will turn their eye toward Philadel- phia this week hoping that the con- ference to be held In this city Wednes- day between representatives of the men and operators will result in a new agreement and speedily end the suspension of mining inaugurated April 1. The eagerness shown by both sides to meet again has caused the miners to feel that with concessions on both sides there will be little-. diflij culty in reaching a satisfactory agree- ment. When the suspension began many of the men felt that a compromise in- crease in wages would be granted, thus ending the troubles, but evidence has cropped up that the union officers will insist upon some sort of recogni- tion of the organization. It the con- ference splits on this question a long suspension is likely. WOULB CREATE FEDERAL OFFICE Corporatlw Commissioner Sub- mits Auuil Report, DOUBTS ALWE POWERLESS Herbert Knox Smith Strongly Urges Creation of Administrative Bureau to Supervise Interstate Industrial Complexity of Big Interests and Constantly Chang- ing Business Conditions Present Se- rious Problem. Washington, AprtK creation of a federal administrative office to supervise interstate industrial corpora- tions is strongly urged by Herbert Knox Smith, commissioner of corpora- tions, in his annual report. Mr. Smith maintains that it is Impossible to en- toree effectively any real system of restraint upon business through the courts alone because of the vast com- plexity of corporate interests and, the constantly changing business condi- tions. As a "convincing object lesson on the need of sucb. an administrative systeia" the commissioner of corpora- tions points to the disintegrated Stand- ard Oil and American Tobacco com- panies. The purpose of these dissolu- tions was broad reform in economic conditions. "And Mr. Smith freely de- clares, "the country has no effective of ascertaining how far the de- eired reform will really be carried out. No one can foresee the future of these new units in the two great industries. It will be purely an economic and financial process. No judicial ma- chinery is adapted to handle this novel problem." The report In part is; as follows: Federal Act. "The'aetual dissolution of two great corporate combinations, ordered by the- saprjernfi. court in-the Standard OH company and American Tobacco com- pany eases, -has thrust forward1 the w hole problem of our policy toward in- dustrial corporations If it'was not plain before it is certainly clear-now that the -federal government must have a permanent administrative office through which to supervise interstate corporate .buslueaB. "There Is little. djspute as to the object of our cprporate policy. We want a business.machinery of high ef- ficiency, serving the best interests of the citizen and returning ample re- ward to the abrtlity and industry of those who use that machinery fairly. But the means to this end are now in debate. "Two great restraints may be im- posed upon business. One is the au- tomatic regulator, competition; the other, direct governmental interven- tion. It is Indeed true that under some conditions even fair competition may result ia combination. The fur- ther question is then.raised: How far Is it desirable to enforce competition by dissolving such, combination? That question, however, need not be dis- cussed here. Permanent System Necessary. "Wnatejrer shall be our ultimate policy, 'however1, whether 'or preserv-' Ing competition, of enforcing competi- tion, or of dlrefct -governlnental regula- tion of or wheth- er, is perhftp'sf more likely; our pol- icy will be a combination of these va- rious In any event such a permanent adnijnristratlve system is a necessary part of it. "That system must have broad pow- ers of investigation, taking continuous policy, however, whether of preserv- industrlal corporations. Such admin- istration Is necessary for either of the foregoing policies described, while it does not exclude the others. "By publicity and supervision It will preserve competition and provide equal opportunity; by am expert knowl- edge of current bujinees conditions It will display the workings of competi- tion, and the cases, if ,any, where this fails to be of will always be is a position to furnish, thrpugh its permanent force of trained the Information needed for legislation or regulation. It als.o have >the knowledge and data may be" re.quirjedl properly to en- force competition and to carry out the Intent, of any decree of, dissolution en- tered under the anti-trust law."

Chicago, April believed to have been employed by political enemies stole a case containing wear- Ing apparel and important private cor- respondence an4 papers from the apartments of Governor Woodrow Wil- son at the Hotel Sherman. He depart- ed for Syracuse, N. Y., with only the clothes he wore. The presidential candidate was dis- turbed when he discovered his loss, but asserted there was nothing in'the case that he would fear to show to any interested persons or to the coun- try at large. "The robbery will greatly inconven- ience he said, "but Whoever ob- tained the papers and correspondence will be greatly disappointed. While the correspondence is of a nature necessarily should ba consid- ered private between the writers aim myself there nothing but inay be published without doing me harm. great deal of the correspondence deals with the campaign T am waging, as do the other documents which were stolen." Governor Wilson hesitated to sug- gest that any political antagonist was back of the theft, although conceding its appearance was most suspicious.

It was learned that a tall, slender man, carrying a suitcase answering the description given by the governor, had been seen leaving the hotel. He was accompanied by a smaller man who carried a small handbag. The two engaged a taxicab and were driven to the Northwestern station, remarking that they wanted to catch ".the Mil- waukee train." Besides the correspondence and, pa- pers In ths suitcase were Governor Wilson's evening clothes, an assort- ment of linen and several scarf pins, which he said had a sentimental as well as intrinsic value. There was no name on the suitcase. Formerly the governor's full name had7 been printed on It, but the lettering was so large and conspicuous that erased them some time ago with al'y'o- hol, leaving a sort of smudge would enable him to easily It. Three New Breaks Occur in Levee South of Thousand Square Miles of Territory Are Now Inundated and the List of Drowned Numbers way Traffic Practically Paralyzed. St. Louis, April thousand persons homeless; two thousand square miles of country Inundated, thirty persons drowned and a financial loss of constitute the re- sult of a two-week flood in the Missis- sippi valley. These figures were arrived at by government engineers aoid officials of state levee boarns engaged in fighting to maintain the Mississippi levees from Illinois to threatened points in Mississippi and Arkansas. Water is pouring into ArKansaa through three neir breaks ta south of Memphis. These- gave way and several hundred square miles are flooded. Railroad traffic in these sections practically is paralyzed. Hundreds of persons still are menaced by the river at points in lower Missouri, North- west Tennessee and Arkansas, They are marooned in housetops. In trees and on anchored rafts. The most dangerous point in the flood situation was at the Lake, Ark., levee. A break at Golden Lake would mean the inundation of a section as .large'as that flooded Saturday by collapse of the wall at the St. Claire.' loop, 700 j square miles, with the probability that the water from the crevasses would join.
