Purine the tlrst part of the week the nnthraclto miners and operators will endeavor to coneludo their bufl neis, ttcglnntng Thursday the bitu minous miner and operators, who have been conferring In Mobile without uc cess. 111 meet hero to continue their ef fort., toward an understanding. The miners arc nakltig for an fight hour day. recognition of their union and, In the ca.v of the anthracite workers, a lo per cent. lncreae In wagos. The bituminous workers are reeking a 10 per cent Inerease. There arc other Is-' sues at stakv, but they are 6f minor, Importance. Wlillr llnpra for (nmprnmlir, John r Whle, president of the I'nlted Mine Workers, who established headquarters at the Continental Hotel jesterdij. Issiirit a statement covering the demands of the miners and explain ing why Increased wages are essential to their existence. He was not hope ful that the operators will aitree to the demands alre.idj- ilawn up, but he doe believe that an ultimate compromise can lie reached. The operators have signified In a recent publicity campaign that It will be impossible for them to grant the two chief demands, namely, higher wages and shorter hours, without Increasing the retail price of coal very consider abl Already they have Informally re fused to grant the demands. They ex plain that a oompk'te acceptance of the requests made by the miners would mean an Increase of lU.uOO.nOrt In the cost of mining coal, or about 30 cents a ton. te.-plle the fact that there Is likely to be soim'thiug like a deadlock from the very beginning of the conference, Mr. White does not think that a gen eral strike will have to be called. He explains that the union lias adopted a npn-sUie!islon jMilley, whi-h means that so long as there Is hope of a settlement a strike will not be ordered. "I'undltlon in the anthracite. Held have groxxn xxurse tnst.xid of better, 1--rjuw the cost of living has gone up faster than wages," sub! Mr. White. The axerage anthracite mine worker tfti far le than enough lo sup port his family decentlj-. Since 1902 wages haxe Increased 5 6-lu per cent. The cost of foo(I since that year has Increased IT per cent., according to the I'nlte.l States bureau of laltor statistics. Iletweeti liH'.l and 1!U the wholesale prices of clothing Increased 33 per cent., according to the same authorltj'. Many Ave mar fillHt a Vear. The only workers In the anthracite Industrj who nulla wore thin ITl0 a j ear are tho vontrac; miners, and thej" represent les than one-fourth of the total number employed. Tnc anual earn ings for miners' Uborers, other Inside men and outside workmen average not more than 1600 a year. The bureau of statistics estimates that a man cannot support his family In decency for less than ITiO a year." Tho miners acknowledge that the operator cannot pay thenj more money aim continue lo make the nanin profits without Increasing the retail price, but they lei.-, their nrgument for a right to higi.er wages on tho cround that the oxvnlng companies have been making more man Is their Just share. The railroads that own and control the anthracite. Industry," said Mr, White, "have paid big dividends on heavily watered stock and have laid up huge surpluses besides, tn 1913 the Heading earned IT.5T per cent, on lt common stock after tho payment of all expenses. ineiiMtng nxeil charges atrl nreferred dividends. Tho Central of Nexv Jerecy paid J6.T3 per cent., the lhlgh Valley lfi.90 per rent., the Lackawanna 31'.04 per cent, and the Delaware and Hudson 1 2.9-t per cent. That xxas in the. bad vear of 1913 before the present prosperity began. After paying these profits the roads were able to pile up ii surplus of llOO.OOO.OOn. The lehlRh alone had a surplus of I5.00,000 In 1913." Want to Avoid strike. It Is pointed out that the miners have the whip hand through the fact that the agreements under which both the bituminous and anthracite workers, have been operating expire on the tame date. March 31, So If the anthracite workers rinally decide to strike they will be able to call on their brothers in the bitumin ous, fields to strike with them. There was a strong suggestion In the attitude of Mr. White jestenlaj-, however, that ouo side woud not support the other If It came to a showdown. TTiwrc is no doubt that the miners do not want to strike and probably will agree to any reasonable compromise to avoid a strike. The operators in the bituminous Meld are understood to he willing to grant some of the demand of their men. Their discussion at Mobile led to an increase of o cents a ton on coal mliiid. Thl would mean an average Increase of about S or 9 per cent., which Is pretty nearly what the miners xxatit Some of the miners were ready to settle, on Oil basis, but others, held out and so the con ference at Mobile came to an end and will be resumed In this city "When wages were raised In 1911 less than 9 cents a ton." said Mr, White, "the Increase was added to the total lalor cost ami the consumer paid IJ cents a ton Increase Tills Is according to the I'nlted State- bureau of statistic. The anthracite companies assert that the Increase we are asking this J ear win mean an Increase to the consumer of tio cents a ton. The 191'.' figures Indicate how much of thin Increase will go to the miner and how far it will !c Justified. "As a matter of fact 1 don't believe the operating companies are willing to take advantage or tneir monopoly or mis enormously rich ami natural resource either to deny the Jut claims of the men who risk their lives underground or to grant their demands and then make It an excuse for gouging the public." NEW IDEA BY DISCIPLE The matrimonial agency at 3S5 West Knd avenue Is to continue doing busi ness at the same place, although Herr Dlrektor Krltr Fndsxus died on January 11. Some of his former clients arid associates have decided to operate the agency as a club, taking the. title of 'The Nuevo Beperanxa," or New Hope Club. The news was circulated among the former patrons of the late Urman agent of Ctrpld, who pent many years of his life Joining lonely bachelors and spin sters for a consideration ranging from $5 to i:S0. according to the dowry, by a circular letter mailed by John At- bertus. leader of the new club move ment. One of these circulars reached a married woman, although Alhcrtui said they were sent only to clients. She complained to the post office nuthorl- ties, saying Hint she did not wish to be annojed further. Yesterday nfternoon a reporter found Albertus In a bedroom In the rear of the agency parlor on the second floor of the dingy terra cotta building directly across from the handsome Apthorp Apartments on Weal Kud uvenue. In the front room xxerc a youth and two women. One woman was middle aged and the other young, apparently an immigrant. "There were something like H.OOO patrons of HeTr t'odszus on our books when he died," Albertus explained. "They had paid money, one mnn i much as K50. and had not got the satis faction they desired. 1 mjself. 1 paid him KO. and I have not been satis fled. So wc decided that these people shall either meet congenial company or get their monej- back from the estate and we formed the club to continue the gooil xxork of bringing young men and women together In this lonely cll.x-. The ivupants nnd owners of the apartment houses in the neighborhood had thought that when J'udsxus died the huge sign "Matrimonial News' would be taken down from the three story building at 3S3. When they learned that the business was to go on In n new form there were Indignant mur muri. At the Apthorp Apartments It was said that Wll'lam Waldorf Astnr, the owner, attempted during t'odszus't life to have him ousted on the ground that his agency w-as an eyesore, but tailed, as the matrimonial ngent owned the vropertj'. l'odius. It Is said, left similar agencies and valuable proper ties In Varls, Berlin and other cities lu Kurope.

Ho says that tho widespread and fraudulent naln of the so-called cures makes an Immediate counter action nccessarj-. "No one needs to be told that a to bacco cure Is a panacea for a malady that does not exist," says Mr. Werthelm. "You cannot spread statoments us thene quacks selling fraudulent nostrums have done dally without producing exactly the desired psychological cffeeit, upon many minds." Charles Puuhklnd, secretary of the ok snclation, annuunceri that he has speci mens of the fraudulent ailvertl-ements which may lead tn prtoecutlons, nnd that chemical unalysls of the nostrums will pioha-hly result in ttovernment prose cutlons under tho food and drug act, St. Nicholas Rink, Wednesday Evening, February 23 69 WEST 66TH STREET I'nder Hie ampliei of the New Vnrk Committee of the Commlnltin fnr'Rfllef In Helilum.

WHEN there arose, in the Tire Industry, a sound of Many Voices. each clamoring that its Owner had the very beat "Non-Skid" design that ever did happen on a Tire, our Professional Critic said, with much Chuckle, "Give us Traction without Friction !" We are ulad to have met that "Poser" more than half-way. Here's how and why. Makers of "Non-Skid" Tires, in a mad effort to produce maxi mum Traction, have done the very natural thing of being too suc cessful. Too successful in gaining Traction, not merely through "Non Skid" designs, but through providing a sandpapery texture in Tire Tread Rubber which grinds against the pavement, wearing out as it grinds. Of course such Treads HAD to be made very thick, and the Tires very HEAVY, in order not to wear out too soon under such constant grinding, with such constant strain on the Rubber Adhesive between the many layers of Fabric in their necessarily cumbrous construction. Of course, such Tires were hearg in that part of the Car beloxo the. Springs where Engineers say that every pound of weight counta as more than twenty pounds placed erxxr the springs. But beyond all this, their groat tliirkncxs, the many layers of Fabric, and the stout Tread of gritty, sandpapery. Rubber, made them naturally stiff, unyielding, hard to bend, and conform where obstacles were struck, hard to drire with moderate power, and slow to coast down hills (which proved all this). The intention was good, but the result was a relatively hot, stiff. Tire, with a Traction-wave to overcome that went far toward boosting the Sales of Gasolene. Well. Making the Silvertown Cord Tire, taught us a few lesson in the manufacture of lighter, cooler, more flexible and enduring FABRIC Tires. TI HE "Silvertown" Tire, you know, trains its marvellous Speed (and the Coasting qualities that demonstrate its Speed) primarily through havinc onht TWO laucrs of Cords, laid transversely. ' Of course, these TWO layers bend more readily than Five, Six, or Seven Layers of Fabric do (or of Cord would). But, we found it necessary, in order to conserve imt flexibility (in the Two-cord construction), to put a Rubber Tread over it which wits equally jlej'ible, equally strong, and elastic enough to act as a sort of spring between the' Earth and the Tire-casing, when Brakes were thrown on at stopping, or clutch thrown in nt starting. So, we had to devise practically o new Idnd of Rubber,--for this purnose TWO YEARS AGO. This new type of black "Barefoot Rubber" now does for GOODRICH Tires a work similar to that done by the wonderful Alloys of Steel and Bronze in modern Motor Car construction. It multiplies Rubber Efficiency, for Tire purposes, while decreas ing its Weight, and without increasing its Bulk, or its Cost to you. A S we cannot vet supply half the demand for "Silvertown Lord lias (until enough mantuactunng equipment can lie constructed) we decided to use this wonderfully efficient black "Barefoot Rubber" in all Goodrich FABRIC Tires for 19W. This makes them 'he most Resilient and Responsive-to-Power, the most Lonu-Livcd and Lively, of all FABRIC Tires, at ANY price, without increasing their price to you. We call this now Hyper-Rubber by the name and brand of "Barefoot liubbcr." Because, il CLINGS to the pavement for the same sort of reason that your bare foot clings to a slippery floor, while being flex ible, stretchv, springy, and light. TENACIOUS, resilient, enduring, this "Barefoot Rubber" you today nt't in all black tread Goodrich Fabric Tires, Goodrich Motor-Cycle Tires, Goodrich Truck Tiros. Goodrich Bicycle Tires, - Goodrich Ruhlxr Boots, Overshoes., Soles and Heels, and in none but GOODRICH products. Get a Sliver of it from your nearest Goodrich Dealer's or Branch. Stretch it thousands of times., but break it you can't. Then tet out a pair of these vers' moderately priced black tread FABRIC Tires-, and see ! New York Branch: 1780'Brondway.
