MCALESTER. Okla., Nov. 14.—* Not a union mine in Oklahoma is working today, according to reports received by J. A. Wilson, commissioner for the Oklahoma Coal Operators' Association. All local union officials concede that they received an order from Indianapolis cancelling the strike but they declare it is not authoritative because it is not 'stamped with the International Seal of the United Mine Workers of America. Neither it it signed by John L. Lewis, acting president, and the signature of W. M. Green is typewritten, it was pointed out. Furthermore the order merely cancels the strike call for Nov. I, they say, and does not say anything about returning to work.
Pittsburg mines belonging to the McAlester-Ed wards Co., have 170 non-union men working today. Convict labor has been withdrawn from other mines and this is the only coal being produced.

NEW' YORK, Nov. 14.—Federal Judge Hand today refused to grant an injunction restraining the enforce iuent of the prohibition act.
And have two other loyal Americans sign it. Then send it to the editor of The Evening News for transmission to our representative in congress. Do it today.
To Senator Thomas P. Gore, Senator Robert L. Owens,
Representative Tom D. McKeown.
Not content with an insidious campaign to overthrow our government, members of radical organizations such as the I. W. W. and so-called Communes have resorted to murder, assassinating three of our Great War Veterans at Centralia, Wash. These skulking hounds have made it all the clearer that the evil conspiracy of the bitterest enemies of our government—OF OUR COUNTRY—intend to keep up their dastardly attempt to kill and maim in their warfare upon civilization, humanity and the government of the people, by the people and for the people.
We, as loyal American citizens, believe it is time to act. And as our representatives in congress we respectfully request you to urge and support the most stringent legislation tending to eradicate these enemies of our country.
