Washington, July 25.-Th
eminent will take definite st

out a muddled coal situation.
The interstate commerce c
sion will issue an order for j
of movement in the transpo

Officals of government ag<
concerned in the straightening c
the coal tangle today read the
ment issued by John L. Lewis,
ident of the United Mine Woi
in Indianapolis last night, bu
dined to comment. Mr. Lewis i
statement declared that any si

would modify the basic inter
agreement under which the m
of the central competitive field
are working would result in a

Mine Workers to bring about a

The association denied that the

was from $3.50 to $4.00 and s
speculation and competitive bidd

at any price had boosted prices
from $12 to $15 a ton.
The question of coal costs J
prices was covered by the fedc
trade commission in its fou
monthly bulletin on bituminous c
costs issued today. The commissi
er's review of the bituminous ind
try for April showed that 1
average sales realizing of the 8
operators reporting for that moi
was $3.26 a ton while the aivera
reported f. o. b. mine cost amount
to $2.76. Of the latter amount $2.

A quiet Sabbath was had today by
Governor Cox. After an early horse
back ride, he attended Christ Epis
copal church with Mrs. Cox and
James W. Gerard, of New York, for
mer American Ambassador to Ger
many, who stopped here en route
home from a visit in the West.
Word of a strong swing in the
West toward the democrats was
brought to the governor by Mr. Ge
pard, who urged a vigorous western
campaign. Mr. Gerard promised his
aid in every way and place desired.
"r was very much impressed with
the governor," said Mr. Gerard. "He
will make a strong appeal to the
country, particularly the progress
ives of the western country. When
his record of progressives legislation
in Ohio is known, I am sure his
strength will grow even more."
The league of nations and other
international affairs, including Mr.
Gerard's experiences in Germany, j
were discussed at length with Gov-1
^emor Cox and Mr. Gerard said he j
felt sure the governor's positioa on
the league would be one of the
