I HE SHOULD WORRY ABOUT THE COAL STRIKE, THE H. C. L. AND SUCH By the Associated Press WASHINGTON, Nov. IO.—Labor leaders predicted today that international officers of the United Mine Workers of America meeting at Indianapolis would not call off the strike as directed by Federal Judge Ander-; son, whatever the legal consequences might be. One of the spokesmen of the miners’ organization! said he doubted if Acting President Lewis and his asso-i dates had the power to comply with the court’s man-; date.    _ “The strike was ordered by a delegate convention in the event the operators refused to grant our demands,”! the spokesman said, “and Lewis merely carried out instructions in ordering the strike. It must be called off bv the convention.” Frank Morrison, secretary of the American Federa-l tion of Labor, would not add anything to the statements last night of the executive council supporting the striking miners and demanding that the government withdraw the injunction proceedings. The Federation secretary had been asked for a statement in view, of the opinion in some quarters that the pronouncement of organized labor was a notice to the striking miners to stand pat “There is nothing to add,” Morrison replied. “That question has already been asked a number of times today and if you want an answer you will have to assemble the council.” Federation Endorses. WASHINGTON, Nov. IO.—The American Federation of Labor stood before the country today as an unqualified indorser of the strike of soft coal miners, bitterly opposed to the actions of the Government in pretending to end the strike through an injunction, which action is characterized as “so autocratic as to stagger the human mind.” Indorsement of the strike was announced last night in a statement issued by the executive council of the Federation which pledged to the strikers to give “indorsement to the man engaged in this momentous struggle.” The use of the Lever Act, under which the court proceedings were instituted, were severely condemned, as “an injustice to all liberty-loving Americans.” Committee in Session.

Final Figures Are Reducing Harreld*s Lead LLOYD -GEORGE’S SUGGESTION GOVERNMENT RECOGNIZE RUSSIAN BOLMHRVIKI BRINGS RETORT. B WED OR TEXAS OIL TOWN IS SWEPT OFF THE EARTH WHEN BURNING OIL FLOWS DOWN THE STREETS. By the Associated Press LONDON, Nov. IO.—Great Britain has no intention of opening peace negotiations with the Bolshevik government of Russia until the house of commons has had an opportunity to discuss the subject. Mr. Bonar Law, the government leader, declared in the house of commons .today. Premier Lloyd George’s hint in his Guild Hall speech Saturday night in favor of an attempt to negotiate peace with the Bolshevik! has created a stir. The anti-Bolshevik press is uniformly angry over the suggestion. The Daily Mail characterises the idea as ’’shaking hands with a murderer” and generally denounces the suggestion. , The Telegraph and the Morning Post are also hostile to the proposal. Referring to the passage in the speech dealing with the possibility of peace with Russia, the Chronicle, always the special champion of the! premier, declares it is not “free from obscurity:” The Daily News, which is antagonistic to the premier, accuses .Mr.] Lloyd George with inconsistency and insincerity in all his dealings with J Russia. By the Associated Press WICHITA FALLS, Tex., Nov. IO. —Searchers for bodies were expected today to explore further the path of a spectacular fire at Waggoner City, a small oil town near here which yesterday suffered property loss estimated at $1,000,000, when lightning exploded thirty-eight 1600 barrel tanks of oil, and burning streams poured down the main streets, setting fire to everything with which they came in contact. As far as was known early today, only one person, an unidentified man* was killed, but many received burns and upward of 1,000 were made homeless. About fifty buildings and residences were destroyed and hundreds who were living in tents lost their place of shelter, in addition to personal belongings.

DISCHARGED EOD KILLING BRADY Paul Combs was discharged from Custody this morning after his prelim nary on a homicide charge in Justice Brown’s court.    , Combs was the star participant in a gun fight in Darktown on September 26, when one Brady teas killed and Black Bess was wounded. Combs himself was shot during the melee but not seriously. From the testimony submitted at the preliminary it appears that Brady went gunning for Combs and got the worst of the argument. REM WIK IN FIFTH DISTRICT OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. IO. (Special.)—Practically complete returns from the seven counties of the fifth congressional district give J. W. Harreld a lead of about 1,300 over Claude Weaver, the democratic nominee.

Weaver’s majorities in Cleveland, McClain, Garvin and Murray coujjties was considerably lighter than in former elections. Less than one-third of the registered vote of the district was polled, nearly 75,000 voters remaining away from the polls on election day.

I Records Show Results of Closing The Saloons H HERE is what the records show has been the result of four months without saloons in Los Angeles: FUtST—-In the four months of July, August, September and October of 1917 there were 5660 cases of ‘‘drunk and disorderly” places on the police blotter, against 2,170 in the same months of 1918, when the saloons were restricted, and 804 cases for the corresponding time of the present year, with saloons closed. SECOND—The number of families under the care of the charitable institutions of Los Angeles have decreased during the four months that the saloons have been out of business from 3,400 to 2,084. The number of patients received at both the County Hospital and the County Farm have decreased, but only slightly.    ' THIRD—The work care of drunken of taking men and women by the Salvation Army, Volunteers of America and Christian Mission in this city has been made almost unnecessary, and the efforts of the men and women of these institutions has b en directed into other channels. FOURTH—The birth rate and the death rate in Los Angeles have not been very greatly affected by the absence of the saloon, apparently. There have been less births recorded and also fewer deaths. FITTW—Marriages have been greatly stimulated. The number of marriage licenses recorded during the four months of the present year that have been saloonless was 3,515. Last year, during the same four months 2,598 licenses were issued. « ;
