Harrisburg Hospital physicians
late this afternoon announced that
the conditions of both Eugene C.
Bowers, Liberty Aero Service Cor
poration pilot, and William Shaf
fer, his passenger, who were badly
injured in an airplane crush late
Saturday afternoon, had showed
much improvement. Both will re
cover, they say.
Bowers, a former army pilot, was
performing stunts near Dauphin,
where the landing field of the Lib
erty Corporation is located, when
he swung the plane nose first into
the ground just as he was recov
ing from a spiral drop. He had
misjudged his distance from the
ground. Shaffer was jammed for
ward into the engine and Bowers
was hurled into the controls of the

Men Show Disposition
in Most Cases to Await
Results of Conference
By Associated Press,
Chicago, Nov. 17.—While operators
and union leaders had predicted re
sumption to-day of mining on a largo,
scale in the bituminous coal fields
lof the country where more than
i 400,000 miners have been on strike
| for 16 days, only in West Virginia,
j were both sides confident that. "all
the men" would be back at work
j during the day.
In the other large producing fields
| the men showed a disposition in most
I cases to await further results of the
! conference at Washington of oper
ators and union officials over a new
wage agreement, before returning 1o
, work.
In the meantime a threatened coal
! shortage in the middle west has
| caused the regional coal committees
ito consider means of conserving fuel.
In Indiana an order prepared by,
jtlre public service commission, reviv
ing lightless nights and heatless days
of wartime, is to go into effect to
night as a means of preserving coal
supplies. The railroad administra- j
I tion to-day took off a dozen pas- J
senger trains on the Chicago, Mil
waukee and St. Paul railroad here
and at Milwaukee, and it was said
that further curtailment of railroad ;
service both in the passenger and 1
freight departments would result if
coal supplies continue to be depleted.
Members of the fuel committee also |
said that unless production is fe-,

NOVEMBER"! 7; 1919,
Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs
Guests of C. of C. to Hear
Noted Lecturer
"Japan will never fight America,"
Dr. Homer B. Hulbert, diplomat,
traveler, editor, lecturer and former
envoy of the Korean emperor, told
members of the Chamber of Com
merce, the Rotary Club and the Ki
wanis Club together at luncheon in
the Penn-Harris Hotel to-day.
"Japan never bets except upon a
sure thing," he continued. "1 know
that in the army of Japan for the
past ten years t hey have been saying
that if Jn'pan could take and hold
the Pacific coast states for ten years
she could hold them forever, but
| that they are not sure they could
; do it so they have decided not to
| try."
Hoarded Emperor
Dr. Hulbert has had ample oppor
tunity to study the conditions of the
Par East. He was for years adviser
jto the Korean Emperor and when
the Japanese sent gunmen into the
j emperor's palace and a mob of thou
sands of Koreans gathered about the
I building he and two other Americans
J stood guard over the emperor and
prevented his assassination by the
The Koreans have accepted Chris
tianity and are learning its precepts
"from the Hiside out. while the Japs
have taken it from the outside in,"
said the speaker, who paid a high
compliment to the Americanization
and Christianization efforts of
American missionaries in the coun
try. The Japs have clothed them
selves in the habiliments of Christian
civilisation but are ruthless at heart,
the speaker said, while the Koreans
have become Christians at heart.
Japan Did Nothing
Speaking of the Japanese invasion
of China and the Shantung incident.
Dr. Hurlbert said that if any coun
try outside of China is to have Shan
tung, it should be the United States.
"Japan took Shantung as her price
for going into the war, hut she did
nothing, while tlie United States
came it? and won the war, which
means that Japan did not pay the
purchase price asked of her." Tho
Japanese in Shantung are simply
robbing the Chinese, he said.
Dr. HurflSurt said that America
must look to the markets of China
to absorb our surplus products in the
next ten years. "We must sell
$8,000,000,000 worth of our stuff
there in ten years if our increased
manufacturing capacity is to be kept
going to the full," the speaker as
serted, and added that all over Chiu-.i
American goods are being sold and
as soon as railroads are run to the
interior ttiis demand will be rnagni
lied many times. He said tlie Japs
had cheated us out of $20,000,000
worth of foreign trade in Korea and
will do the same in China if we per
mit her.
"Rut we have no need to fear Ja
pan," said Dr. Hurlbert. "Japan al
ways yields to a bluff and never un
dertakes a war she is not certain in
advance of winning. She will never
fight the United States."
He predicted that in the course of
the next ten years Japan will face
a grave crisis from (within, the gov
erning classes being at swords' points
with the common people to an extent
that bids fair in a decade or so to
turn tlie autocracy into a democracy.
Attacks on Japanese
Dr. llulbert told his hearers of the
vicious attacks of brutal Japanese
upon liberty-loving Koreans, how
they had stolen their land, murdered
Christians, tortured patriots and
ravaged their women. lie offered
proof for all the charges and accused
Uie American Government of sup
inely ignoring the Treaty rights of
Korea and letting Japan have l.er
own way there. 'Why, men," he said,
"if the. Japanese had done to tho
American people what they have
done to the Koreans we would have
risen up and died to the last man in
our efforts to throw them out of the
HP made a strong plea for trade
relations with the Far East and re
peated that in that direction lies not!
only our own prosperity in the days j
to come, but tlie progress anil nd-i
vancement of the Chinese and the >
Koreans as well.' He. like many
other observers just returned from
the Orient, predicts that the efforts
of the Japanese to dominate China
and Korea will end as disastrously
for Japan as the Kaiser's assault
upon Europe did for Germany.
Dr. Hulbert came to the eity
through the instrumentality of Wil
liam Bennett, whom he met while
the two were doing "Y." work In
France. E. J. Stackpole, president I
of the Chamber, presided and
George E. Foss, secretary of the
State Chamber of Comhierce, an old
friend of Dr. Hulbert introduced the
Mining Delegates
Censure Labor For
Demanding Short Days
fly Associated Press•
St. I,mils. Nov. 17. Emphasizing
increased production as a means of
decreasing living costs, delegates to
the American mining congress, which
opened here to-day, censured labor
for demanding shorter work days.
Action against radicalism cannot be
toe drastic, the delegates said.
I "Production, which America needs
most of all at present, cannot in
crease if labor obtains a workday two
hours shorter than the present stand
ard." said Blukeley Wells,, of Denver,
piesldent of the congress. "It is evi
dent that not nearly as much can be
produced In six hours as in eight or
nine. The eight-hour day will go a
long way toward relieving the high
j cost of living."
E. P. Mathewson. of New York, a
' director of the organization, urged
j that the congress be prevented from
I taking on a class character. "We
must represent the general public,"
| he said.
