nepref.entntlw.1 of the United Mine
Workers of America and of the coal
mine operator will meet nt the McAlpIn
thV morning at 10 o'llock to try to
reach un iiRreement by which they may
ro on amicably working together after
March .11, when the agreement now ex
IJtlng will expire.
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,
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."
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
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

shall either meet congenial company or
get their monej- back from the estate
and we formed the club to continue the

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

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

Said the Critic-
"Give us TRACTION.
without Friction!"
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
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
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.
Making the Silvertown Cord Tire, taught us a few lesson
in the manufacture of lighter, cooler, more flexible and enduring
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.
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
This makes them 'he most Resilient and Responsive-to-Power,
