Porter, head *of the American delegation, tonight declared the British proposal submitted by Lord Cecil today at tho reopening of the International opium conference, as a possible solution for the far eastern opium problem to be "quite unacceptable." This problem is one of bringing about the gradual suppression of opium smuggling in the Tar east in fulfilment of the terms of the famous Hague opium convention. The United States wants opium smoking stopped entirely within ten years. Great Hrltaln, through Lord Cecil, announced she stands ready to stop it In fifteen years, but upon a condition. And it is the condition to which Mr. Porter takes exception and which seemed tonight to Imperil the success of the present conference. Great Britain's condition is that the fifteen years will begin to run only on tho time when. China shall have suppressed her growth of opium to that stage which will remove the dan ger of opium smuggling from China into olhor far eastern territories. The American position is that danger of crime generally may be always said to exist; hence, tho likelihood the danger of the crime of smuggling may continue to exist indefinitely, thus postponing forever the inauguration of the British suggestion. Mr. Porter explained his dissatisfaction was not alone confined to the opium smoking problem, but extended as well to the committee recom- endations concerning cocaine and the establishment of a board for the control of narcotic drugs. | Next to the presentation of the :British suggestion, the outstanding feature of today's session was the .lining up of Great Britain, Frnnce land Holland against tho American motion to resume the work of the first opium conference and thereby take up at the present conference the question of opium smoking. Lord Cecil, M., Dalndier and Dr. Loudon all declared the first conference alone was entitled to discuss opium smoking. That conference has concluded its labors, but no power has signed the convention drawn up by it. Lord Cecil, however, coupled his disavowal of the present conference's incompe­ tency by introducing the new British declaration on the opium smoking question, and British spokesmen explained tonight Lord Cecil's idea is the suggestion might be added as a protocol to the convention elaborated by tho first conference, which was restricted to countries having far eastern possessions.

JANUARY TERM FEDERAL COURT TO OPEN TODAY The regular January terms of the United States court for the southern district of West Virginia will convene in Bluefield this morning at 10 o'clock, which Judge George W. Rtc- Cllntic 1B presiding. Ira II. Mottershend, clerk of the court, accompanied by several deputy clerks and stenographers, arrived yesterday and put in tho day at the federal building shaping the docket for the spelling today. Judge Mc- Cllutlc, the attorneys and other court attaches, will arrive in Bluetleld this morning on train No, 4. The hotels of the city last night took on a congested appearance. Jurors who hnvo been summoned for this term, witnesses and numerguB officers had made their way to the city so ns to be on time when court was opened this morning. Considerable interest was shown here yesterday in the reports from Marion,, Vn., to the effect Roy Patrick, aged twenty-seven years, was being held in the Marlon jail without bond on a charge of being responsible for the collapse of the muck dam at Saltville, Christmas eve in which eighteen persons perish. Patrick was arrested Saturday morning, at Saltville, and is said to bitterly deny the charge and claims he will be able to prove an alibi, according to reports received here. He is married and has two children. The authorities declare they have evidence that lends them to believe Patrick used several sticks of dynamite to dislodge the mountain of lino muck stored in the huge dam back of ilie town of Saltville. It is alleged ho made threats against the Mathleson Alkali Work because of failure to get employment'there. Heports from tho jail at Marlon last night said that the prisoner was held on the second floor.of the jail and carefully guarded. Threats against Patrick are said to have been heard at Chilhowic and one or two other places Saturday night but it 1B now believed that there is no further probability of violence. .Evidence not disclosed in detail by the officials is said to indicate that several sticks of dynamite were discharged on tho dam about 8:30 o'clock on the night of December 24, while n number*of families in the little valley underneath t)jp brow of the dam were joyfullv making preparations for ChrlstmaB. An hour or so later thousands of tons of lime refuse poured from its moorings engulfing a wide expanse in the river bottom and sweeping human beings, homes and outbuildings into the Northfork of the Holston rT>ar nearby. It is said that suspicion first rested on Patrick when several persons recalled having >rard him make threats against the Alkali Works. Patrick declares tho charge is the result of anmosity of persons who "have it in for htm." He is rehement in. his denial of guilt. , Patrick has recently been working at North Holston, Va. His father re sides at Plasterco. The arrest of the young man has caused a sensation in Saltville and that vicinity. It was revealed yesterday that many persons there have been of the Im- .pression that tho disaster possibly has its inception in the mind of a vicious character who songbt means to wreck the vengeance for a fancied wrong. The fact that the collapse of the dam appeared to be timed for Christmas gave strength to this conjecture In the minds of many. As soon as Patrick was arrested the officers deemed it the better part of wisdom to remove him to Saltville. There has been no sign ot attempted violence in Saltville, however, and none is looked for. No effort will be sflared to make a thorough investigation of the case. It is also expected that careful inquiry will be made into reports that Patrick possessed a quantity of dynamite on the night of the disaster.
