Both Miners and Operators AreNow Deadlocked in Controversy
ATTORNEYS POR MINE WORKERS WILL SOME TIME TODAY FILE MOTION FOR DISSOLUTION OF RESTRAINING
By the Associated Press
CHICAGO, Nov. 6.—The dispute between the na-) tion’s bituminous mine operators and union miners, which resulted in cutting off, virtually the production throughout the country at midnight Friday night, today remained in deadlock with leaders of both the pro- j ducers and miners agreeing that the blunt refusal of the I department of justice to withdraw the injunction proceeding against officers of the United Mine Workers of j America had swept away all hope of immediate settlement of the strike.
As the approximate 125,000 miners remained idle for the sixth day, further steps have been taken to reduce ! the menace of a threatened coal shortage in some sections.
General conditions surrounding the strike today re-! mained virtually unchanged. No disorder or vandalism was reported.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov. 6.—Attorneys for the1 united Mine Workers of America some time today will file a motion in federal court for dissolution of the restraining order to prevent officials of the union fromj issuing instructions to the strikers.
The officials were in conference this morning with, their attorneys and it is understood have completed the( writing of the motion.
Such motions in accordance with court rules must be1 filed two days in advance of the arguments. The hearing of the government’s petition for a temporary re-j straining order has been set for Saturday and today is the last day for filing motions in the case by either side.

TOPEKA, Ran., Oct. 6.—Probably the most interesting subject which will be presented at the business sessions of the annual state Teachers’ Association, which will open to day in four sessions, on each at Pittsburg, Wichita, Salina and Topeka,, will be the resolution on the formation of a school teachers’ union and whether or not such union should affiliate with the American Federation of Labor and be subject to strikes to achieve its aims. This resolution is but one of 27 which

The Miracle Man” At the Liberty a
OKLAHOMA CITY. Nov. 6—J. A. Whitehurst, president of the state council of defense, yesterday tele-raphed chairmen of all county councils unng that meetings of local organizations be held in each county of the state Friday afternoon for the purpose of laying plans for the beginning of the fuel survey which is to embrace the entire state.
The purpose of the survey is to ascertain the amount of coal on hand and the vicinities where there is plenty of wood for use instead of coal if the use of a substitute is needed.
.he real pinch of a coal shortage as a result of the strike has not , bee.i felt yet, due to the exceptionally warm and fair weather of the past few' days although an actual shortage is reported to exist in some places.
It is the intention of the council of oetense to urge the use of substi-t ut sa, such as coal and fuel oil where available, in order to conserve the supolv of coal now on hand. It is believed that if steps are taken immediately to use these substitutes much suffering that would otherwise ensue will be averted.
First attempt at the use of convict labor in the mines will be made tomorrow on four mines located on the prison grounds at McAlester. Water. which had flooded the pits during the recent rain was pumped out yesterday and Warden Switzer advised Governor Robertson last nigh' that the mines would be ready Friday to be entered by the miners.
The governor announced yesterday that the plan of putting unskilled men in the mines will be held iii abeyance until after final action on th* government’s injunction in Indiana.

Donahue, will move Thursday morning to the pits southeast of the city and the same afternoon the convict camp assigned to work the roads of Pittsburg county will be moved there and put to work. Other convicts will be brought from the penitentiary, giving a worce of fifty or more laborers.
Convicts volunteered yesterday to act as engineers for the steam shovel and experienced men are available for other positions requiring skill.

Lease Wording Is Given New Meaning By Supreme Justice
OKLAHOMA CITY. Nov. 5.— (Special.)—Justice k. IC. f jNeill of the supreme court, in a Jissenting opinion in the cases of Charles M. Prowant et a1., and Morton G. Custer et a1, vs. the Magnolia and Fortuna Oil companies, decisions which were handed down a week ago, takes issues with the majority of the court on the intent of the contract regarding the leases involved. The majority opinion construed the words of the leases, which required drilling, to mean that where the lease was being developed, though no oil found, that it pro-’onged the term of the lease over the giv&n date of expiration. Justice McNeill does not agree to this.

COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 6.—Late returns from Tuesday’s prohibition election appeared to upset the predictions of Secretary of State Smith that the drive l\as carried the four prohibition proposals by a majority running as high as 75,000.
Unofficial returns from fifty-nine counties, including all of the wet towns and big cities, showed wet majorities on all four proposals and an unusually wet majority against the Crabbe prohibition enforcement act on the ratification of national prohibition.
Fairly complete official returns from fifty-nine of the eighty-eight counties, gave the wets a lead of
14.000 on the repeal amendment,
27.000 op the beer proposal, 48,000 on ratification and 78,000 on the Crabbe bill.
