In- - general, railroad nd steam-shi- p msri wers inclined to.thlnk that the Eastern railroads and steamship lines wculd not feel the shortage as quickly as railroads and manufacturing plants In the.mlddia Western States. , Another development which tho strike has probably accelerated Is the growing tendency toward the use of fuel oil la place' bf coat In both etemhlps and manufacturing plants. The recently an- nounced plan Of tho Shipping Board to convert tho 1ovlathan Into an oil burner, and the now being made by the Cunard Line as to the economies Which may be obtained from the in- stallation of oil furnaces ln the Maure-tan- la and Aqultonlo, are only examples bf the trehd toward the new fuel Which was so successfully used during tho wark To Instal Oil Burners.

GOVERNMENT READY TO PRESS FOiR WRIT Miners io Seek Dismissal or Modification. InbiXNaPoLis; Nov. 7. There woa no indication here that a effort would be made to have Injunction pro- ceedings against the striking coal min- ers, set for hearing, In Fed eral Court, postponed, and attorneys for the Government declared they were pre- pared to carry out their programme. Attorneys for tho miners stated they would moke no effort to se- cure a continuance .of tho hearing, but that if their efforts, failed to secure dis- missal of the case they would ask for a modification of the Injunction to allow Use of the etrlke benefit fund. Officials of the United Mine Workers of America at International headquarters hire also refused td\ dlsc'.ss tho court action or the possibility of settling the etrlke outside of the courts. John U Lewis, acting president of the organisation, when asked about the report that Samuel Gonipers, presi- dent of the American Federation of La- bor, had communicated with him con- cerning his conferences with Attorney-Gener- al Palmer would only re- ply that he had nothing 16 tny. When the injunction proceedings come up' in court morning it Is ex- pected the first-- ' argument will be on' the miners' motion for dismissal of tho Government's petition for Injunction. This motion attacks the Government's right to interfere In the strike situation and declares that President Wilson ex- ceeded his authority In reestablishing' the National Fuel Administration. If this motion Is overruled by the court the Government's petition for a temporary Injunction to prevent mine workers' leaders from participating in the conduct of tho strtno will be argued. This. petition. In addition to asking that the present restraining order be mado a temporary Injunction, asks for a cojrt Order to Compel the miners' hoada to Withdraw their strlka call. It was pointed out to-d- that, al- though the Government's petition asks only for a temporary Injunction at this time, Judge Anderson, If he thinks ad- visable, may make tho Injunction per- manent In their defenco agnlnat that part of the Government's prayer for a manda- tory order to rescind the - strike the miners, It Is understood, will bring up the question of whether or not the union officials can call off the str ike 'If ordered by the court. The miners have con- tended at all times since tho Etrlko call Was Issued that a the walkout- was ordered by the Cleveland convention they were powerless to arrest It and that Only anothor session of the conven- tion could authorize the, miners to re- turn to work. The union's lawyers also will Invoke the Clayton law of 1914, Which, they soy, prevents. Interference In any disputes between employers and emMovee on wages. Two points to be pressed by the Gov- ernment are that tho Lever law for the control of fuel la In effect despite the miners' contention that It would not apply because tho war had \ceased pro- gressively,\ and that since the railroads are guaranteed a certain Income by the Government the United States would be forced to pay the railroads In ex- cess Of the amount necessary If opera- tion were continued as usual. Tho lat- ter point presents tho question of prop- erty right and Injury, which Is said to be necessary to secure the restraining order. The Government's case will be In charge of'C. B. Ames, Assistant Attorney-G- eneral, who arrived y from Washington. e i FREER-MOVEMEN- OF COAL IS ARRANGED Priority. List Changes Are Or- dered by Mines. Washwoton, Nov. 7. Slight changes were made ln the Railroad Administra- tion's priority list by Director-Gener- al Hlnes. The changes ordered make the movement of coal freer and avoid some delay In the despatch of coal shipment. Under tho nerv regulations, shipments consigned under the first four divisions of the priority list will be permitted on etralrfit consignment without permit flits Includes, besides the railroads them selves, Government departments, the army and navy and State Institutions and some Industries. Appeals of sugar refiner in Cuba forcoal Were met conditionally through orders Issued by the Railroad Admini- stration's central coal committee, which modify the original export coal embargo. Under the new regulations tho Cuban re- finers will be permitted to buy coal here provided they sign agreement to ship their eugar production to this country. The .sugar shortage In the United State Was admitted to have been the deciding factor to change the commit- tee's embargo.

The visit came as a surprlsd at a moment when the labor delegates were putting fofwrard amendments to tho con- - ventlon on hours of work. Announblng that he spoke for nobody but himself the told the delegates he occupied \the most unique position of any official on the face or the globe\ for the reason that \I am without power or authority or Influence. Mr. Marshall stated that he did not know enough about the problems before the conference to discuss them Intelll- - utiles eneush of my own,\ he said, adding amid laughter nnd ap- plause, \I preside over tho Bcnato ol the' United States.\ \But I do have somo Idea as to hew tho many wrongs which oxlat In the relations of labor and capital are to be solved,\ he Said, \and I cannot help saying thla to you : For Grid's sake, get nt tho ablution of these problems ln a spirit of amity nnd concord and friend- ship and common human sympathy. The nt objected to re- ferring lo legislation In the Interest of the \laboring class\ or any other class, saying \I object to classes In a world where God made men.' lie pro- ceeded to classify legislation nto two groups, the first being that which, lacks the support of the peoplo ahd therefore creates trouble and turmoil, and the second or successful sort \which seeks to crystallize Into the law of the land the public opinion of the country.\ His closing statement waB n wish that a \golden mean\ might be reached ,ln the conference after \radicals and conserva-fives- \ had expressed their vlows. a.

Ho argued Hint It would btf \suicidal for Canada to take action so long as un- certainly exlsti ns to whether the United States will ratify the treaty of peace, and In case of ratification, whether reservations may be adopted Imposing restrictions oh labor legislation. Tho labor group y Introduced Its amendments to the proposed draft con- vention submitted by the organizing committee. The changes were read and explained by Leon Juhaux of Franco and T. Bhaw t Oreat Britain. The two principal changes suggested were that tho legislation should refer to \commercial undertakings\ as well as to Industrial establishments, nnd that tho eight hour day and forty-eig- ht hour weak would be laid down ns maxima In- stead of a simple declaration for the forty-eig- ht hour week. Saturday half holidays and a forty-fou- r hour week were recommended. N. Y. FARMERS OPPOSE UNION WITH LABOR Demand Representation in ial Conference. Special DtlpdtcS lo Tn Sex. Stracvse, Nov. 7.
