Attorney General Palmes had pre- pared on extensive fceport to lay be-, fore tho cabinet, resulting from Inves- tigation of tho striko by agents of the Department of Justice and United States district attorneys, The attQi 1 - ney general made no secret' of the fact, that much of this evidence pointed to an attempt Upon the part of some ex- tremist leaders t o foment' a general [strike which niignt lead to even more grave national difficulties. Whether the government shall ac t in the present crisis, will-be very large ly determined by the cabinet today. There was evident a tendency upon the part of* some administration ojtHa- IHs to fdrestall government intervals tion as long as possible, fearing that action hy the government, would sim- ply add fuel to fires which extremists are fanning.

FOOD SHORTAGE THREATENS MARKET CENTERS OF EAST .HIGHER WAGES ASKED Controversy Grew Out °f Miners/ Failure in Fight. to Nationalize Mines London, April ii— The British min- ers' referendum vote on whether to accept the government's compromise force their full demands, is scheduled to be made public tomorrow? Because the Miners' Federation's rules, require a two-thirds majority to proclaim a general strike in the cord fields, authorization of a strike by tho referendum is„not expected b y Frank- Hodges, the miners' secretary and other officials who have been conduct- ing th'e negotiations. No recommendation for a strike was contained in -the ballot. The South Wales miners are expected to show a. majority for g. strike, but the either coal fields are less radical. By strik- ing 1 the miners would stand to gain less than a dollar per week more than the government offers. Estimates show that the govern- ment's 'wage concessions will meaa that the 900,000 miners' payroll bo boosted some 36,000,000 pounds annu- ally. They have been contending fi>! a 43,000,000 pounds increase. Saw a Chance „for Wage Boost The whoje controversy grew out of the miners' fight, for nationalization of the mines.

Mayor Hague of Jersey City, Mayor Mylan* of New York and Health Commissioner Cope- land were to sit in a t the meeting and lay the case of the public before the opposing factions. Shea was confident today that the end of the strike is in sight \Too op- timistic,\ was the way th e strikers termed his attitude. They blamed him for the announcement^ oT a \settle- ment\ which was made at the conclu- sion* of the first conference yesterday. Shea predicted today, however, that the strike will \end' as quickly_as it arose.\ * ' • Similar optimism -was-put- forth by L. C. Grifflng, vice president of the. Brotherhood of Engineers. He said the strikers' grievances were real, but to reauce tno price ot expurt^coSTTwo\ pounds, about $8) per ton, thus wip- ing out the possibility of superior pro- fits. The excuse given was that the reduction would cheapen imports and the cost of living and incidentally aid France. The miners retorted by demanding a wage boost of three shilling^ daily j for every miner over 16 years of age and half that for boys. The govern-, rrient eminferori with n ^\ nrn \ tp e \ f *»• 20 per cent wage increase, or two shillings daily, to miners over 18 years of age and offering one shifting daily more to miners between^16 and.l.sj years \of age arid nine pence-to boys. There was a flat vote by the miners on both propositions. During the referendum the miners' leaders urged tho men to accept the government's offer. Carrying put the guarantee means that the government either will have to restore the former price of export coal or increase the price Of home consumed fuel. In the highly improbable event of a strike being authorized, there would bo further conference between the go^erhlnent and the miners' delegates and in no case would the strike come into effect before May.
