Watches Fereral Trade Board For several days the President ha given his attention almost entirely ti the work the Federal Trade Com mission is doing. Officials with whoa he has consulted are of the opinior that a definite price policy will b formulated in the very near future Coal probably will be Anally disposed o first and steel next. Th? Trade Commission'? steel inres ticntion revealed that it will be almos' iir.possil.'u* to fix a prie? for steel, ai was done in the case of coal. Varyin* eoata in different plants make it :m practicable, it is said, to make a fiai and, too, costs are continuais ring. The plan most favored by the Trade Commission members is or.? ? which the government would de? termine the cost of producing definitf orders, and would pay a fair percentage of profit on each order. The chief disadvantage of this sug gestion is that it provides no plan for protecting the general public in its purchase/: and. protection of the public, the President has emphasized, is one of the chief aims of the Ad? ministration in enforcing a reduction In prices. The Administration, how? ever, || understood to be standing be? hind the Pomercne bill, pending in Con? gress, which would give the govern? ment virtually the same powers in fix? ing prices on steel and other materials as it now has in the case of coal. Anthracite To Be Taken I'p To extend the government's control over co?l the President yet has to fix bituminous wholesale and retail prices and must issue regulations governing distribution and apportionment as be? tween different parts of the country. Anthracite, too, it is understood, will be taken up, and prices fixed through? out the industry. At present anthra? cite prices at the mines are kept down under a voluntary arrangement reached some months ago by the producers with the Federal Trade Comrul?sion, but no way has been adopted for deal? ing with wholesalers and retailers. Extension of coal control will bring with it, it is understood, the appoint? ment of a coal administrator, whose relation to the coal industry will be about the same as that of Herbert Hoover to the production and distribu? tor of foods. So far the name of H A. Gnrfield, president of Williams College, is the only one that has been mentioned for the place. President Wilson, it was said t?? richt i* greatly pleased with the pro made by the Trade Commission in i's investigations and hopes to set? tle the price question soon. Coal Operators Plan To Fight Price Scale Fixed by President fPpecH" CerrenricndtrtMl WAHINGTON, Aug. 22.- The coal operators of the country met in the office of the Coal Production Commit? tee to-day and called a meeting of all bituminous operators in the I'nired States to discuss the abnormal condi? tions they are asked to labor under by virtue of the President's price-fixing decree of yesterday. The operators' meeting Is set for Pittsburgh next Wednesday. It was ordered by the National Association of Coal Operators, which perfected an or ganirat.on this morning, with H. N. Taylor, of Kansa- City, as chairman. While the operator? were diplomat!? in the language of their call, they gave utterance to private protests against some of the tentative prices for various coal producing districts fixed by the President. The West Virginia opera? tors were particularly exercised. E. V. Knight, one of the operators who at? tended to-day's meeting, said: "The price scale for West Virginia mines is too low; something has got to he done or the operators cannot ??urvive." Garfleld May Be Named. Following the President's conference Tith the trade commission, no of? ficial announcement was made, but there is general understanding among operators that Pr. Harry A. Garfield Y-aj agreed to accept the post of coal pdmir.istrator. He did not participate ?n any coal conferences to-day, how I ever, and will not discuss the forthcom ' ing appointment. The call to the operators for an emergency meeting is regarded here as i n forerunner of an effort to induce the ? President to revise the scale of coal \ prices as soon as the permanent coal ' policy is perfected. In fr.et, is is very ?probable that the Pittsburgh meeting' ! will appoint a committee for that pur- , pose or designate the committee un j coal production to present their claims. The members of the executive com- j j mittee of the BSSOClatlOB, which issued | i the call for the operators' meeting, are i the follcawing: 11. N. Taylor, Kansas City; E. C. Honnold. Chicago; H. \V. Ogle, Terre ?Haute; George N. Barker, Columbus, | Ohio; RemVandt Peale, New York; J. j II. Wheelwright. Baltimore; Howell J. Loavis, Knoxville, Tenn.; w. K. Field,! ? urgh, and .1. J. Tierney, Phila- I delphia. The text of the call sent out ad- j dressed to all bituminous coal operat? ors, associations and individual oper- ? ating concern?, not members of coal ? operators' associations, is as follows: "In view of the action of the Pr?s- ? ident wieh reference to th<? bituminoua ' coal industry of the country as re potted in the morning press, it is I deemed of the greatest importance that , the coal producers of the United States moat as soon as possible for the pur-1 pose of disenssing and considering thf fihnormal conditions under which the industry is now asked to labor. "Accordingly the National Associa? tion of Coal Operator?! extends an in- I vitation to all bituminous coal pro- | dneers of tho country to meet at the William Ponn Hotel, Pittsburgh, Pcnn , I at 10 a. m. Wednesday, August 29, 11917." I Wilson Coal Decree Pleases Naval Men WASHINGTON, Aug. 22. .The Nary* Department felt fully vindicated to- ! day in refusing to pay the price fixed j by the coal committee of the Council or National Defence for its coal by the announcement of the President's act in fixing a rate of a little more ; than $2 for run of mine coal. The committee's recommendation was $2.95 at the mine, which would have meant $4.36 delivered at Hampton Roads. Last year the navy consumed 1.000, 000 tons of coal, paying for It $2.85] delivered at Hampton Roads. It is ex-1 pected that, under the President's de- J cree, the nary will pay more this year. hut not $l.f.O per ton more as proposea by the conl committee. When the disputo with the coal Operators crystallized. Secretary Dan- | ieh announced that the Navy Depart meat would pay $2.33 per ton, holding I that sum would not only pay the cost : of production but yield the operators a fair profit. The ?price of $2.33 was ? decided upon after an investigation of ; the cost of production at the mines by the Federa] Trade Commission. The coal committee's recommenda? tion also provided for additional costs t> the navy, involving an increased price to be governed by raises in wages | and by higher freight rates. The navy i this year will consume tremendously, more coal than ever before. In Fome quarters it was estimated | that the navy would consume 2,000.000 tons of coal a year during the war owing to constant active duty and the : increased number of ships constantly, in every kind of war duty. Food Ban Aids Belgium WASHINGTON. Aug. 22. -Negotia? tions are under way by the food con? trol board to divert to Belgium a con? siderable portion of the foodstuffs and | other supplies consigned to neutral na? tions and held up at American ports By the exports council. Representa tiens made to the board are that there : is urgent need in Belgium for such supplies. Beefless Days in Chicago CHICAGO, Aug. 22.?"Beefless days" in Chicago will become a reality in September. Thousands of Chicago res tnurants and hotels have agreed to in? stitute beefless Tuesdays, beginning next month. In addition to the beefless dajs. at least 10 per cent of some other kind of flour rye, potato, banana, corn or nee - will be used in white bread and rolls as a means of saving wheat. Young animals, such as real, bahy lamb and suckling pigs, will no? b? served at all. Ham and bacon will be : sr-rved only at reakfast. The portion ! ?f bread find butter to each diner will be lessened. Whitman-Perkins , Forces Expect to Win Food Fight Governor to Insist on His Choice for Adminis? trator Insurgents Weakening Party Whip Seems to Have Had Its Effect During Recess ALBANY, Aug. 22. The appointment of Georg? W. Perkins as head of the proposed State Food Control Commis? sion is apparently th? only stumbling block to the passage to-morrow by the Legislature of the food bill sought by Governor Whitman. Elon R. Brown, majority leader of the Senate and chairman of the War Committee, insists that Mr. Perkini should elim? inate himself from t^e situation, and some of the Republican leaders in the Senate express doubt that his appoint? ment could be confirmed by the Sen? ate. Governor Whitman, however, ac? cording to the best information, is de? termined on the appointment of Mr. Perkins. "If Mr. Perkini wanta to do a ser? vice to hit country," said Senator Brown, "he should enlist right now. It would be a patriotic thing for hirn to itep aside In this food situation. The upstate people do not want him." The friendi of the Goremor, on the other hand, are confident that the food bill not only can be passed, but that Perkins, should he be nominated, would be confirmed by the Senate. After Governor Whitman was In? formed this afternoon of the state? ment of Senator Brown he said: "This is no time for personalties. The only way this fight will be settled is by parsing the bill as it is." Whitman la Determined This assertion by the Governor is taken as an indication that he will brook no interference with his power to appoint the food control commission and that he il still determined to ap? point Perkini. The insurgent Republican rural leg? islators, who held out against the food bill last week, showed signs of the ef? fect of the party whip on returning to Albany to-day. The call of the various county bosse? to his aid by Governor Whitman had the desired effect so far ai the passage of the bill Is concerned, but their willingnesi to itand for Per? kini is still in doubt. It is expected that this will be settled at a con-1 ferenre of Republican legislators to- I morrow morning. Both houses of the Legislature held ! perfunctory sessions to-day and ad? journed until to-morrow morning. In j the Assembly, where the principal fight against the food bill is expected, there ?rare present only 27 Republicans and 11 Democrats. Speaker Sweet told ! those present that he had sent tele-1 grams to all the others to be in Al- I bany to-morrow and to be prepared to ! finish up the business of the. extra ses- \ ?ion. He advise<4 the members to I bring their dinners wiih them, because! he would insist on the ?eSsion being! completed this week. At a conference this afternoon Speak- ! er Sweet assured Governor Whitman that he had enough votes to pass the ' proposed food bill. The Speaker, how-1 ever, would not discuss what action I the rural legislators would be likely to take in case Governor Whitman in- I sisted on the appointment of Mr. Per- ' kini. Democrats May Line Cp. There is now a possibility that the' Democrats, in the end, trill support the j hill agreed upon by the Governor and tha legislative war committee. Rnhert ; }'. Wiigner, the Democratic leader of tho Senate, said to-night that because Of the sentiment m the cities the i Three Years of the Great War by FrankHSimonds You need it! THE first concise, authoritative account of the world war to date. This 58-page book, by the widely read Associate Editor of The New York Tribune, reviews the fighting in Europe from the German advance through Belgium to the short-lived Kerensky-inspired Russian of? fensive. Mr. Simonds is acknowledged, here and abroad, to be the greatest military critic de? veloped by the war. His weekly articles are followed by hundreds of thousands and his annual reviews have been eagerly awaited. Now for the first time you can obtain a com? plete history of the first three years of the war, composed of Mr. Simonds' reviews writ? ten at the end of each yearly period. Every American, in particular those who expect to go to France, should get "Three Years of the Great War" and follow the military movements leading up to the present situation.

"The originil Whitman bill is. of course, the bt'\ bill," said Senator Wag Irer, "but if it is impossible to get th:s i bill through the Democrats may be [willing to accept the bill the Governor now wants." Several amendments will be offered to the food bill in the Assembly to-mor ?ow. One by Coior.ei Walla, of Brook? lyn, trill Specifically mention milk as r'ne of the necessaries to be plac-d un? der the control of the proposed com? mission. Colonel Wells said that the ? ur had agreed to accept this amendment. He declared that in view of the continually mounting price of milk and the importance of this prod , uct there should be no doubt that milk |enme under the jurisdiction of the food control commission. Another amend? ment will probably call for the estab? lishment by the state of pasteurization plants in the various cities. .-se-.ator Brown reitera'*-d h;s belief to-night that in spite of the objeci?n of New York City the provision in the hill for the purchase of market ter? minals for the cities, to be paid for half by the s'ate and half by the cities, can? not be improved upon. He held that New York City would lose money by purchasing its market terminals with? out state aid, and that because of the proximity to it? debt limit it could not afford to do this. Mayor Mitchel and the New York City authorities had protested that for the ?late to pay half of the cost of th? mat? keta 'or the cities. New York City would be paying nearly ~'> per cent ef this cost, aid an amendment ?rat proposed i that the cities pay for their market ter? minals without state aid. During the brief legislative session, Senator James A. Foley, a New York Democrat, introduced a bill to appro? priate $100,000 for the erection of a dehydra'ion plant and to provide means for encouraging the study of scientic drying processes. Wheat Conference Urges Drafting of All Unemployed Committee Named to Frame ' Law for Conscripting Idle Men and Women ' KANSAS CITY.'Mo., Aug. 22?Draft? ing of unemployed laborers for work upon farms, the importation of Mexi? can labor, improvej labor conditions and the control of the supply of seed wheat were suggestions mudo for the increase in wheat acreage at the Mid? dle Western regional wheat and rye conference, which was held here t? day, at the request of Secretary Houston of the Department of Agri? culture. Many of the representatives report? ed a ahortage of labor, due to the draft The use of improved farm ma? chinery and tractors as a means of eliminating labor was also discussed. Nebraska representatives told of the organization of the schoolboys of that state Into a harvesting' association. The Oklahoma delegates declared that the I. W. W. constituted a men? ace to the labor situation in that state which must be met. Colorado is pro? viding laborers with transportation and positions through a state bureau, its representatives asserted. R. A. Oakeey, chairman of the Seed Stocks Committee of the Department of Agriculture, advised the organiza? tion of state and county committees to supply the required amount of wheat for fall planting. A committee to frame a resolution ? asking for a law drafting all unem- | rloyed men and women for war emer? gency work was appointed. A second ' committee to draft recommendations for marketing and milling plans was also designated. The thirteen - represented, all have pledged them? selves to plant the 47.000,000 acres of winter wheat and R,000,000 acres of rve asked by the Department of Agricuk ure through Dr. Raymond A. Pearson, Assistant Secretary of the department, who is conducting the meeting. The conference will close to-morrow, and the Federal representatives will go to Spokane, Wash., where the fifth and last wheat ind rye conference of the nation-wide campaign will he held. Control of Exports Taken From Redfield WASHINGTON, Aug. 22. The Prosl dent by OXOeatiTO ord?r to-day trans? ferred the Administration control of exports from the Exports Council, of which Secretary Redrield of the De? partment ?if Commerce ?a.? chairman, tn the administrative board of the council, which is headed by Vane ('. McCormick. The administrative board ! comprises besides Mr. McCormick, who I represents th? Iiejiartment of State, j Dr. Allison K. Taylor, representing the ; Department of Agriculture; .1. B. | White, the Food Administration, and ! Thomas D. Jones, the Department of I Commerce. The Shipping Board will have repr? ' sentation on the Administrative Board, ] but Chairman Hi.rley has not yet se? lected the man for the post. He stated ; to-day that he was trying to get a prac | tical shipping man to accept the place. To-day's chan?;e m the export control administration means that the Admin? istrative Board, which up to this time has been advisory to the Export Toim eil, will now become the predominant body. The Export Council itself will become little more than a formal or? ganization. The War Larder After a careful study of results re? ported both from the laboratory and the field, the Home Economics Depart? ment of the State College of Ariculture recommends as the surest way of can? ning peas, beans, corn, pumpkin, squash, greens and asparagus the use of the intermittent, or three-day. method of sterilization, instead of the continuous, or or.e per.od, method, ex? cept where sten.m pressure is used. These particular vegetables ruquire special treatment, for three reasons: They are closely packed and therefore difficult to penetrate by heat; they lack the acid which protect.-) tomatoes and the fruits from bacterial attack, and they are likely to have on them certain soil bacteria, which form resistance spores. These spores are often diffi? cult to destroy by boiling in the water bath, even for a iong continued period. A case i? reported on good authority in which activ? bacteria were found in corn which had been boiled continu? ously in the water bath for twelve hours. The intermittent method of aterilisa i tion calls for boiling the vegetables in tho water bath after they have been ? placed in the jars an hour each day for , three days. This allow? alternate pe 1 riods of rest, in which the dormant r#"ist/inee spore? may lay off thrir ! heavy protective wall and begin active growth. In the growing state the bnc ? tcrla are easily destroyed by the next | period of boiling. For quart and two quart jar? a daily boiling of one and ? I half to two hours is recommended. Coal Price Fixing Means Little to Consumers Here Most of Bituminous Used in City Is Contracted for Three Years Ahead May Lower Anthracite Dealers Believe Wilson's De? cree Will Drive House Fuel Cost Down The plain citizen of this city failed to get excited yesterday over the an? nouncement that President Wilson had fixed the price of bituminous coal?not that soft coal is unimportant, but be? cause bituminous plays little part in ! the domestic life of people in this sec? tion. Despite that fact, it was pointed 1 out by dealers, one-third of all the coal consumed in New York City is bi I luminous. However, only large industrial plants, i such as the Interborough Company, the I electric light companies and oil and ! sugar refining niants, burn soft coal, and most of them aro well taken care | of by contracts which are usually made from on? to three years in advance. So it was pointed out by the trade that the only ones likely to be affected by the fixing of prices in Washington ! would bo the smaller plants which | failed to contract for next year's sup I ply last April, when euch agreements ' are usually made. With the price of bltumlnoue coal fixed at $2 at the mine, and with price? [ last April ranging from ?3 to $5, those ', familiar with the coal trade In this | city predicted that the tendency of the 1 coal operators would be to leave .he concerns without contracts in the lurch. Unless the President goes a step fi.r ther, according to a prevailing opinion, and either takes over the coal mines or their total output, and distributes coal throughout the country, there will be an extremely irregular distribution, with the regular customers who have contracted to pay from $3 to $5 great? ly favored all around. May Lower Hard Coal Cost. The small consumers in this city, the apartment house or tenement house owners, and the dwellers in private honaoa. use anthracite coal almost ex? clusively, and are, therefore, not con- j cerned with the vicissitudes of the ? soft coal industry. The indications are that hard coal at retail will sell as low as $S next winter under the in direct control of the Federal Trade ' Commission. Many anthracite coal dealers In New York do not think the . President will fix prices of hard coal, (.?though some hold the contrary view. "Bituminous coal dealers," accord? ing to F. W. Seward, editor of the "Coal Trade Journal,' "are completely up in the air regarding the new situation. If the factory owner who has not con? tracted in advance for coal il to be protected, it would seem that the Gov it.iment would have to act in his be-i half. There is a conflict in the 'ood control hill, which gives the President rower to regulate the coal industrv, so it is difficult to foretell what will hap- : I en. Price fixing practically puts the mid? dleman out of business, for the margin of profit will be too small to permit him to take a share. With the price fixed by the President a?. $2 at the mine, bituminous coal will probably be worth $IJ?O at the unloading port and $3.00 at its final destination, until two years ago bituminous coal was worth between Jl and $l.fiO at th? mine. The rise in price is due chiefly to the1 tremendous increase in demand for coal since the war business itartod, and ?No to the lack of freight cars to deliver coal. Means Mttle Difference Her? "Last year about 500.000,000 tons of bituminous coal were mined, and this year the output will probably be larger. But about 80 per cent of this is sold far in advance by contracta, and only 10 per cent at the most Brill be avail able to the buyer in the open market. i That means that the majority of hi I tuminous coal buyers will continue to u?e coal at the higher rate for which 1 they contracted, and the coal dealers ! won't be hit by the new low prices very , much for about a year. The consensus ! of opinion among the operators seems ' to he that there will be an extremely small profit n -*2 coal. If this is true, ; the mining of mal trill be discouraged j by the fixing ef prices, when the crying t need i? for stimulation of the produc i tion to meet the unprecentedly enor 1 mous demande " Floyd W. Parson, editor of "Coal [ Age." expressed the belief that the President would appoint an adminis? trator foon to fit trie prices of hard coal. "It is ?ikelv," he said, "that anthracite coal will be regulated just as bituminous and a hard coal admin? istrator be appointed. The Federal Trade Commission has already stated, however, that the price received for ! anthracite coal at the mines is fair, and i it is certain that there will be little re-, ! duction in this quarter." Illinois Retail Coal Prices Are Promptly Cut CHICAGO, Aug. 22.-The Consumers* Company, of Chicago, said to be one of : the largest retail coal dealera in the i ; world, to-diy announced a slash of ! I from $1 to $1.80 on soft coal, effective j ? immediately. This is In line with the j ; price fixed by President Wilson. Other ? I dealen will make similar cuts at once, '? it was said. It was estimated the re- ; ! ductions would cut Chicago's coal bill by $3o,oo?,ooo. It was announced that coke had been i increased 10 cents a ton. the change having b*en duo to increased produc? tion costs which would have forced the faiaa September 1 in any event. Illinois officially recognized price? for coal in this Htate. fixed by Presi? dent Wilson, when Governor Frank O. Lotraen to-day telegraphed congratu- , lations to the President on his action, i The Governor's telegram says: "Pleaie accept my heartiest conjrrat- ? ulotions upon your action yesterday in j , the coal matter. You hav? saved Amer ] lea from a ?itustion which would hav? greatly embarrassed us in the eonduct | I of this war, such ai hi? embarrasied , | every belligerent nation of Europe."
