- CUNTON PETITION DENIED
IS'o Fair Play Designation in Fifth
When President Judge Audenrlcd and
Judges Cair and Flnlettcr in Court No.
T today considered the application of
Kimiuuel (.'Clinton, congressional candi
date in the Fifth District, to compel the
County Commissioners to give hlni the
designation of the Fair Play party 011
1 ho nillclal ballots. It was found that
his petition was lacking In averments
o.-seutlal to tustaln It under the law. The
court tlu-retoie dismissed tho petition.
Jainea M. Dohan, Democratic counsel,
who had presented It, declared he uould
limneillatelv appeal to the Supreme
oun. Clinton's name still remains,
nowever. on the Democratic column.
It appeared that when his name was
icrtltled for the ballot as a congies
slonnl candidate by the assistant Secre
iry ot the Commonwealth, the Fair
Play designation was omitted through
an oversight. In the Sheriff's procla
mation tor the election, Clinton was
deborlbcd as candidate for the Town
.Meeting and Democratic pal ties. Hut
when the Commissioner:: iMiitu to com
pile the ballot they discovered thev had
1111 rlgnt to place his name on the "Town
Meeting party, so the only, ticket he got
on was tho Democratic, the Fair Pln
not halng been certified to tho Com
missioners. Tho Commissioners explained that It
would cost about $6400 to reprint the
ballots as desired by Clinton. Judgo
Audenrlcd said It was an unfortunate
mistake that deprived Clinton of the
place on tin, ballot, but the court did
not think It fair to burden tho county
Sfi'mm'0 wllha expenditure of over
$6000, especially when the petition In
the case was so defective.

TO CONSUMERS ASKED
Pennsylvania Operators Say
Wage Increases of Employes
Make Rise Necessary
Illclier prices to the consumers for
anthracite coal bine been tf-ked by the
Pennsylvania pioducers for the purpote
of absorbing the wage Increases given
Statistics on costs of production laid
beforo the fuel administration tend to
show that the present fixed prices on
hard coal at the mines will not permit
higher wages to be paid without con
siderable loss on each ton of coal turned
The wage advances that have been al
lowed Increase the daily pay of miners
$1 to $-', In addition to rises for other
employes nt the mines not directly en
gaged In producing coal. Present prices
of hard coal at the mines range from M
lo Jl.CO a ton for the larger companies
and seventy-fix ecentH it ton above thi'se
figures for t lie Independent operators.
Doctor Garfield ihas not reitdried a deci
sion In the application for higher prices.
The new wage scales became operative
ycsiernay ana two Hours nrter they went
into effect a committer rcpicsentlng the
operatois put forth an appeal for ad
vanced prices tit the mines. Dr. Garfield
has not reached a decision concerning
the appeal, but otliclals of big anthracite
companies in this city are conldent that
lie will grant "reasonable advances."
An onicial of the Lehigh Coal and

The closing da.vs of the campaign,
which promised to be dull and without
much Intenst, upset the earlier calcula

The President's appealfor the election
of Democratic majorities In the Sennit'
and House transformed the situation
hit n real- old-fashioned political light.
The effect of tho appeal, to the cha
grin of Democratic matiagt rs, apparent

the reaction produced bcnellted lit publi

In Missouri the Republicans have let

In Montana tho situation was cmiipll
