COAL SITUATION GRAVE.
"Full realization of the import of
the coal production suspension," says
President Lewis of the Mine Workers,
"has not yet dawned on the American
public. The accumulated coal re
serves of the country are being rapid
ly diminished and the much heralded
non-union production is totally inade
quate to carrying for the nation's
needs. In the anthracite '/coal fields
155,000 men are on strike and produc
tion of anthracite coal is completely
The country is beginning to realize,
however, that the strike is a mine op
erators' strike against the public rath
er than a miners' strike against the
operators. The operators forced the
strike in the first place by being un
willing to live up to the terms of
their contracts with the employees
and by continuing' to refuse, since
that time, to have any dealings with
representative* *f these employees.
It is probable that the miners
would have consented to some reduc
tion in pay, hut the operators have
absolutely refused any negotiations
looking toward that end.
Of course the strike enables the
coal operators to force new contracts
from consumers at prices beyond
what would have been warranted by
cost production and the supply of the

Washington, D. C.Freight reduc
tions of 10 per cent ordered by the In
terstate Commerce commission to be
effective July 1st, will not apply to ag
ricultural products nor will they ef
fect passenger and Pullman fares.
Thus the farmers can gain by the
new decision only on materials which
they buy and it is likely that increases
in prices will absdrb the decreases in
freight rates on those commodities.
The reason given for not getting
the rate on agricultural products is
that reductions effecting these prod
ucts have already been put into ef
fect. The commission refers to the
lower rates on coarse grains and hay
and to the voluntary reductions in
agricultural products, which were to
last for 6 months unles large re
ductions were made in the wages of
Another part of the decision fixing
5.75 per cent has a reasonable rate of
return on actual capital invested also
has immediate bearing on the farm
ers. The guarantee which expired on
March 1st fixed the rate as 6 per cent.
This new rate is undoubtedly too
high in view of the fact that many
conditions point to a 3 per cent rate
on call money in New York and 4%the
per cent on good commercial paper.
If the public is to guarantee a rate of
return, it certainly should be no more
than what is paid on good private se
In addition the railroad executives
have full power to pad costs and thus
make hidden profits as they have in
the past. Wide open cost padding will
flourish until the public gets actual
control over costs to public owner
ship. The interstate commerce com
mission has to take the figures of cost
of operation as presented by the com
panies and allow freight rates which
will give a reasonable amount of re
turn after paying all these costs. Ev
en corporation income taxes are sub
tracted before profits are figured and
hence the earnings allowed are really
something over 6 per cent.
Commissioners McChord, Lewis, and
Cox, who have all taken a progressive
attitude, urged sharper reductions.
Chairman McChord likewise dissented
from the 5.75 per cent profit and
Commissioner Potter wanted reduc
tions in passenger rates.
The addition of ex-Congressman
Each to the interstate commerce com
mission, who helped frame the Esch
Cummins act was sufficient to give
the commission a reactionary major
The decision is worded in such
shape as to allow conservative organ
isations to make extravagant propa
ganda claims to the farmers but as
a matter of fact the farmers get no
reductions in rates and on the other
hand have a new profit guarantee
forced upon them practically equiva
lent to the old guarantee. In fact it
is worse because the present money
rates are at least 2 per cent lower
than they were when the Esch-Cum
mins act was put into operation.
Farmers can hardly expect any dif
ferent treatment so long as Wall
Street financiers are given a free
hand to manipulate our vital trans
ing steadily and are cutting in serious- ter of concealing and protecting wai

Representative Voigt of Wisconsin
introduced the "pure milk" bill a year
ago. Extensive hearings were held
by the house committee on agriculture
and the measure was reported favor
ably. Condemning "filled milk," which
the Voigt bill would put out of busi
ness, the committee said:
"The committee is of the opinion
that the traffic in the article should
be stopped now, before irreparable in
jury is done the health of the nation
and serious damage is done the dairy
After weeks of persistent fighting

ASKS JAPS WITHDRAWAL.
England has served notice upon Jap
an to retire from Siberia according to
recent announcements from London
and if the retirement is affected an
other warring zone in a troubled world
will become tolerably peaceful.
The United States and England
were active in getting Japan into Si
beria under the plea of supporting the
Kolchak expedition against Soviet
Russia. But in spite of Japanese aid
Kolchak expedition failed after
great slaughter of the local inhabi
tants. The American forces with
drew and Japan has since been trying
to get in a position to monopolize Si
But neither American or English
business desires to see Japanese busi
ness established in Siberia and be
cause of the rivalry the Russian peo
ple who live in Siberia may be able to
secure peace and a fre trade outlet
for their products to the world. Con
siderable trade between America and
Russia will probably develop if Japan
were out of the Eastern terminal of
the trans-Siberian railroad-Vladivostk.

law which would except farmer immi

Under the Steenerson plan, aliens
experienced in agriculture upon filing
on embarkation a sworn statement of
their intention to settle upon public
lands and farm it, or to cultivate oth
er property, would be admitted with
out regard to percentage restrictions.
Such alien, however, would be requir
ed to deposit $200 for himself and
each adult member of his family and
$50 for each minor child, this money
to be returned with interest by the
government upon satisfactory proof
that his declaration had been complied
with. Failing to give such proof the
fund would be used for deporting him
and his family.
WAR GRAFT PROTECTION.
Attorney General Daugherty after
being forced to take some action on
war grafters, made a grand flourish as
to how he would "expose national per
sonages in the Wilson administration"
who had knowledge of fraudulent war
transactions and "were personally in
terested in concealing them."
It is common knowledge of course
that Attorney General Palmer's chief
business in office was concealing war
grafters, and that a vast amount of
shady dealing was connected with his
administration of alien property.
Everyone also knows that war graft
was nonpartisan and that Republican
machine is just as much interested as
Democratic machine in covering up
In fact Senator Caraway has brought
before the senate facts relating to
Mr. Daugherty, which would call for
his immediate resignation if grafting
and concealing grafters did not have
the nation so thoroughly by the
Captain H. L. Scaife, an attorney,
was detailed by the department of
justice to investigate the government
dealings with the Bosch Magneto Com
pany. After thorough investigation
Scaife recommended action against
the company to recover at least $2,-
000,000. Daugherty did not act and
Scaife who felt himself bound by his
own personal oath to support the con
stitution and laws of the United
States, gave the facts to two congress
men and these congressmen brought
the situation before the House recent
ly. Scaife was fired by Daugherty
for "disloyalty to the department." In
the meantime two men who had oper
ated privately with Attorney General
Daugherty tried to hire Scaife as at
torney for the Borch Magneto Com
pany in Its defense against the gov
ernment suit. In other words, the
government agent who made the inve
tigatlon and who should have had a
leading part in prosecuting this alleg
ed war grafter was to be used to de
fend it and thus deprive the govern*
ment of his knowledge of the case.
Perhaps Harding cannot well get
rid of Daugherty because Daugherty
engineered the campaign which secur
ed his nomination at Chicago and is
the practical political boss of the G.
O. P. administration.
The daily papers have had much to
say about Daughertys illsmelling con
nections with the Morse pardon, but
