total variously estimated at
from $15,000,000 to $20,000,000
to Charles Ponzi in his money
making; scheme, postal officials
said to-night. Inspector Mosc
ley said:
"We have obtained conclusive
evidence that there has been no
abnormal issue or redemption

There is no means by which a
man can manipulate interna
tional reply coupons. Ponzi's
claim that he has made millions
in this way is simply a Stupen
dous fraud, with nothing upon
which it can be based.
"The entire, issue and redemp
tion of international reply cou
pons throughout the postal union
for the past six years would not
aggregate $500,000."

London, Aug. 12. The dispute be
tween the coal miners and the Govern- j
ment has now reached the stage where
It seems very likely there will be a coal
strike early next September. A con
ference of miners' delegates at West
minster has Just decided unanimously
to call on the miners to take a ballot
whether there shall be a general strike
to enforce a reduction In the price of
domestic cosl and an Increase of wages
to the amount of fifty cents a day. The
vote will be taken shortly.
The conference turned down the sug
gestion to demand only Increased
wages, dropping the demand for re
duction In coal prices. It preferred to
fight on the original demands made at
the Leamington conference. Labor
circles consider the oltuation ns very
grave.

Within a stone's throw of 10 Down

of Tub Sun and New York Hbraj.d
was told by two persons who usually
speak authoritatively two widely di

first declared that the Reds would
soon make the necessity for the re
uniting of the Entente "violently evi
dent." The second asserted that all
misunderstandings between Great
Britain and France were capable of
being straightened out by mere ex
changes of views, a personal meeting
between the two Pr tnlers not being
necessary.
However, neither of these men de
