tion hotels; (6) under existing con
ditions, it is recommended that the
license be revoked.
One peculiar snag in the,, case is
that Funkhouser implies he had trou
ble in getting information from
Johnson while Capt. Reh'm and Serg't
Tierney report in writing that John
son "always assisted them, the offi
cers.
Two days after Johnson's license
was revoked Al Tearney started up a
big brand new dance hall, with bar
adjoining, near Cottage Grove and
35th streets.
Johnson refuses to talk about- his
case at this time. He says that later
on he may give out some information
and when he does he will have a long
er report with more names and dates
than are in the Funkhouser report.

50,000 MINERS TO SUSPEND
OPERATIONS TODAY
Columbus, 0., Mrch 31. Fifty
thousand men will suspend opera
tions late this afternoon because of
the failure of the miners and opera
tors to reach a new wage scale-agreement.
The present wage agreement
expires tomorrow.
Neither operators nor miners
would predict how long the suspen
sion will continue. It was admitted,
' however, that the duration of idleness
is dependent on the outcome of fur
' ther negotiations for a wage scale
agreement mutually satisfactory to
both factions and a test suit to deter
mine the constitutionally of the Ohio
mine run basis payment law, which
becomes effective May 15.
The operators declare . that the
Ohio mine screen law, granting min
ers pay forall coal mined instead of
that portion run through screen, was
passed by the Ohio legislature back
ed by mine operators of general com
petitive field.
Thousands of miners in the Hock
ing, Jackson, Crooksville, Zanesville
and Pomeroy mine districts of Cen
tral Ohio laid, down their tools today ,
not waiting for a general suspension
agreed upon by the operators.
Philadelphia, Pa. The conference
between the soft coal operators and
the miners of Central Pennsylvania
may be brought to a close today with
out final settlement.
Pittsburgh, Pa. Talk of a coal
strike in the Pittsburgh district took
flight today, following a meeting be
tween the operators and representa
tives of the miners at which the form
er agreed to make concessions in re
gard to improving certain local con
ditions in return for a renewal for
two years of the present wage scale.
As the miners some time ago drop
ped their demands for an increase in
wages, the tentative agreement
reached yesterday was held as equi
valent to a settlement. The miners
will submit their local demands on
May 1.
2,000 MINERS QUIT
Wheeling, W. Va., March 31.
Two thousand miners in the Belmont
county fields of Ohio quit work yes

HAVE PICKED PLACE FOR PART
OF WORLD'S FAIR FUND
Five thousand dollars the annual
interest on a fund derived from the
sale of souvenir spoons at the Chi
cago world's fair will be used in
maintaining three new infants' wel
fare stations to be established in the
congested sections of the city, it was
announced today.
Mrs. Potter Palmer was custodian
of the fund of more than $100,000.
Recently an inquiry was started as to
what had become of the money. Mrs.
Palmer finally appointed a committee
of three Chicago clubwomen, who an
nounced plans for the welfare sta
tions today. The principal, it is un
derstood, will ultimately be devoted
to building a working girls' home.
