scores of public men and to every

The Retail Liquor Dealers' Assosia-

Riordan president at a meeting of the
association yesterday. John V. Flynn,
M. J. Collins, and F. O'Sulllvan were
chosen vice presidents; James Richard

John Trant, and William Collins were
made members of the executive board.
Opponents of President James M.
Lynch, of the International Typograph
ical Union, slated for the position of!
Government Printer, are discussing to-i
day the matter of sending a protesting
delegation to President Wilson. Strenu
ous opposition has developed over night,
and both District Democrats and antl
Lynch union printers are up in arms
against the proposed appointment.
Announcement of the fight over Lynch
in The Times yesterday was one of the
sensations In District circles today.
Democrats, who did not know the Inside
of the proposition, are in many cases
lining up with the Insurgents. The
American Federation of Labor, however.
is prepared to put up Just as stiff a
fight as the Democratic printers and
The District Democrats, opposed to
Lynch, are not unfavorable to the pay
ment of a political debt by President
Wilson, nor opposed to the establish
ment of a strong labor following by
reason of a prlntery appointment, but
they are making one of their strongest
arguments against Lynch on the ground
that for nearly twenty years he has
been a professional lasor union man,
and not a practical printer. Employes
of the prlntery, except the Republicans
in the Lynch element of the union, are
saying that a practical man should have
Judge Foil First Used
Anthracite as Fuel
The first man to use anthracite coal
as a domestic fuel was Judge Jesse
Foil, who was born in Buckingham, Pa-.
J62 years ago today. Experiments with
anthracite had been previously made by
two Connecticut blacksmiths, namd.
Fore, in 1768. but it was not until 1S09
that Judge Foil demonstrated the gre-it
commercial possibilities of the coal,
which Is, except the diamond, the pur
est form of carbon known.
In Judge Foil's day, anthracite w.is
called "stone coal," and the early ex
periments with it as domestic fuel are
amusing in the light of the present.
As anthracite kindles with difficulty,
and requires special furnaces, gratc
bars,.and other fixtures, it was consid
ered absolutely worthless before the ex
periments of Judge Foil and others
proved Its great commercial possi
bilities. The annual production Is In the neigh
borhood of 90.000.000 tons, and the value
of the mines about $175,000,000.
Just a little care and small expense,
that's alL Isn't ? head of rich,
heavy hair worth while?
