HUSBAND’S Win CAIRES OI Well Fed in The English Prisons PROPOSALS OF COAL STRIKE SETTLEMENT BY SECRETARY OF LABOR WIL-SON AKB REJECTED. PERPETRATOR OF PLOT ADMITS THAT HE RECEIVED MONEY FROM GERMANY FOR PROPAGANDA. By th* Associated Press WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. — The United Mine Workers of America today formally rejected the proposal by Secretary of Labor Wilson for a settlement of the coal strike called for Nov. I. John L. Lewis, president of th^ Miners’ Union, announced that the proposal was indefinite and inadequate and failed to meet. the demands of the mine workers. Be added that he would so report to the next meeting of the miners. By the Associated Press STRASSBERG, WeU, Oct. 22.— The conspiracy for a revolt in Alsace-Lorraine, having for its object the establishment of a republic here* is assuming greater proportions than at first anticipated. Roessler, the man alleged to be the arch conspirator, and who has been placed under arrest, has, according to the military authorities, made a confession admitting that he received 500,000 francs from Germany since last May. The funds were sent to him from Baden-Baden, it is said. Acting as intermediary between Che Berlin foreign office and the conspirators here* according to. Koess-ler’s revelations, was a relative of former Imperial Chancellor Von Bethmann-Hollweg. Literature siezed at Koessler’s home was for the “New Republic of Alsace-Lorraine” and called upon the population of the two provinces to separate from France as well as Germany. WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.—The proposal of Secretary of Labor Wilson for settlement of the coal strike will be rejected by the miners, officers of the United Mine Workers of America announced today on their way to a meeting called to formulate an answer. This was taken to mean that the joint conference with the operators this afternoon would end abruptly unless Secretary Wilson was prepared to submit an entirely new proposition. John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers, reiterated that his union would consider no offer of settlement that failed to grant the demand for a five day week. Members of the Miners committee said their meeting this morning would merely ratify the informal    .    . agreement reached last night to re- Frank Stevens wafc acquitted of a ject the offer.
