WASHINGTON, Nov. 7.—The
strike of bituminous coal miners in particular and the industrial situation in general were discussed by President Wilson’s cabinet today at a special meeting called by Secretary Lansing of the state department. Fuel Administrator Garfield and Director General Hines of the Railroad Administration were present.
Before the cabinet assembled administration spokesmen reiterated that the government was unalterably opposed to the proposal of Samuel Gompers. president of the American Federation of Labor, that the injunction suit against United Mine Workers of America be withdrawn as a preliminary to the negotiation to new agreement between the miners and the operators.
Officers said that the government’s offer to arbitrate the controversy as soon as the strike order was withdrawn still was open and that unless it was accepted and the strike ended there was no course for the government except to press the injunction suit.
WILL ACCEPT RESERVATIONS TO PEACE TREATY IF THEY DO NOT NULLIFY THE COVENANT.
By the Associated P
WASHINGTON. Nov. 7.—President Wilson today told Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, administration leader in the senate peace treaty fight, that he would be entirely satisfied with any reservations supporters of the treaty might feel justified in accepting, provided they did not nullify the league of nations covenant and were designed for the purpose of interpreting the terms of the treaty.
The President, Senator Hitchcock said, expressed "his very strong approval" of what had ben accomplished to date and agreed that no compromise would be offered unless a deadlock was reached on a resolution of ratification.
Senator Hitchcock outlined his program as first an endeavor to defeat the reservations reported by the foreign relations commitee, and if that failed, to vote down the resolution of ratification containing these reservations. His next move will be to present a resolution of ratification and should a deadlock ensue to attempt a compromise with republican opponents. Senator4Hitchcock said if a resolution of ratification containing the committee reservations were adopted that would settle the fight so far as the senate was concerned. He declined to specie as to the probable course of the I iesident in such a case.

CHICAGO, Nov. 7.— Present hign prices for men’s ready-to-wear clothing today were blamed on the amalgamated clothing workers of America by Nichols Michaels, assistant state’s attorney, in whose hands were books and records of the organization taken in a raid on its headquarters.
More than $500,000 listed as fines and settlements was taken from the clothing manufacturers by the union, the state’s attorney’s office charges.
Various small factories and shops were driven out of business and the industry in general was compelled to pay tribute, according to Mr. Michaels.
According to information obtained by Mr. Michaels girl button-hole workers have been paid $50 a week and more skilled workers considerably higher wages under the scale formulated by the union. First class coat makers, it is said, received from $100 to $125 a week under the piece work system.

CHICAGO, Nov. 7.—Curtailment o* passenger service, discontinuance of the use of coal for * our own vessel? at American ports, restriction in some places of the use of public utilities and appeals for coal for various cities as the strike of approximately 4 25.000 bituminous coal miners today rounded out its first week, gave the nation further indications of the distress in store, should there be a protracted suspension of mining operations. Other disarrangements of the country’s outine was expected today, with little change in the ‘ general condition surrounding the strike itself.
Government agencies still remain hopeful that developments tomorrow' at Indianapolis, when the motion Hied by attorneys for the United Mine Workers asking dissolution of the restraining order will be argued, may open the way that will lead to an early settlement of the strike.
While it was officially announced by the director general of railroads that no general curtailment of train service was contemplated, sixtv-six trains today has been annulled in the central west. Regional directors had orders to eliminate service where it was not absolutely necessary in the public interest.

ong clerks on account of lack of proper supervision, bad system, •poorly arranged stock—which resulted in losses and leaks in the business, and finally caused the merchant to become disheartened and about to give up the struggle. The merchant’s career changed, however, after he adopted a system that gave him a proper check on his goods and money, rearranged His store and goods so that they attracted customers. and taught his clerks how to become more efficient through being courteous and attentive to the trade. The lecture and pictures bring out many other ideas of interest to the merchant, and are instructive as well as entertaining.
These pictures have been shown before some of the largest state and national conventions, under the auspices of Chambers of Commerce, Board of Trad*^ Merchants’ Associations and otfi busiess organizations, and have received the highest commendation and endorsement.
The lecture and pictures have been secured through the courtesy of the National Cash Register Company. of Davton, Ohio. There will be no charge for admission, and every merchant and clerk in the city will, no doubt, take advantage of the opportunity offered and attend.
