W. Archbald, of the Commerce Court, re? lating to interviews the Jurist had obtained with them about coal deals. George F. Baer and W. J. Richard? son, of the Philadelphia and Heading Coal and Iron Company; Fred W. Jones, connected with tho Delaware and Hudson Coal Department, and others, testtJlcd. Ail but Mr. Baer told of Interviews with the jurist. Mr. Bier said tho Beading Rail? road Company was not connected with the Philadelphia and Beading Coal and Iron Company, of which he Is also president. The policy of the company, he said, was not to lcJsu Its culm bunka. "Did Judge Archbald. to your knowl? edge, intercede with you or our com? pany to lease a" culm bank to Fred Warlike, of Ecranton?" asked Chairman Clayton. "Not with me." Vicc-Prestdent Richards, of the same coil company, testified that on Novem? ber 25 or 27, 1911. Judge Archbald called on him at Pottsvllle and asked for the situation In regard to the pro? posed Warnke lease. "1 told him the matter had been considered and was practically closed and that the culm bank would not be leased," said Mr. Richards. A letter written from Ecranton by Judge Archbald arranging tho Inter? view was read. It was written on a letterhead of tho Coramerco Court. Mr. Richards asked If his brother was offered $3,000 to get him to change' his mind so Warnke could get the lease. "My brother had nothing to do with It. Warnko wrote him about threi years ago to use his influence with me." Fred Warnke told ef buying an In? terest In a lease of n Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company culm bank and of unsuccessful ?ndeavora to renew It, as the company considered him a trespasser and not n tenant. He related negotiations .with the company concluded when Vice-President Rich? ards refused to see him or answer his letters. Then he asked Judgu Arch? bald to aid him, the Judge consenting to talk to Richards. A month later Judge Archbald In? formed him that he had seen Richards, but could tlo nothing. "If tu succeeded, what did you ex? pect to give him?" ? "Only friendship." The witness aded that not until this inquiry arose did It occur to him that he had done wrong In asking Judge Archbald to do him this favor. Last December Warnke said he asked Judge Archbald about title to a coal till at Pittston. Tho judge responded he could not act as attorney, but Warnke said he just wanted hlr, opin? ion. The judge told hlin, he said, the title was good. After closing the deal he told Judge Archbald ho wanted to j pay him $501'. but that tho latter was j not willing to take it at first. Last March, howaver, Warnke drew the note. ' signed it by his company, made ptiv able to the members of tbe company and Indorsed by them. L?atcr Judge Archbald called for It. Fred W. Jones, of Ecranton, of the coal department of tha Delaware an* Hudson, told of the sale of the Pltts [ ton fill, which Warnke Anally bought I He. said he told John Henry Jones of the till, and later Jones told him that Judge Archbald had gotten an option on the Mil. The witness said he never saw such nn option, but he understood the judge got It two or three days after i ho told Jones about It. The witness declared hp understood Judge Archbald would be able to get a right of way from the Delaware and Hudson t<^ draw the coal out. In April, 1911, Jones testified that ho and John Henry Jones met In Judgu Archbald's office and talked over the leal. The witness said It was agreed that lie. the witness, should he com? pensated for "discovering" the fill, and it was agreed that Jones should go to City Attorney Davts's cftlco to draw up an agreement. Tin paper was read. "Why did you and Jones go to Judge Archbald's ofll< e?" asked Representa? tive Norris, "Well, I understood ho had the op-i tlon and I 'was to ho compensated,' responded the witness. "What did the Judge say?" "He said It would be all right to compensate me." Fork I'nlon Arademy Finals, I Special to.The Tlmes-Dlspatch.'j Fork Union, Va..

The first special order to be consid? ered at tho afternoon session was the report of the Judiciary committee. Tho report-of this commutes was lead by Rev. YV. R. Dobyns, chairman of the committee. The item of the report that was considered tirst was tho com? plaint of tho j^asion of Lafayette Church against In* Synod of Louisiana, and tho committee recommended tliut this complaint be not sustained, for the reason that ono church court can- j not enter a complaint against another i church court. Jlon. Allen G. Hall, a member of th?' commlttoe, explained that In a com-] plaint to tho assembly one party te the complaint must be an individual, otherwise the complaint Is that of tno Presbyterian Church In tho United States making complaint against the Presbyterian Church In the United States, lie explained further that one court of tho church can appeal from i the decision of a lower court to tho; Ceneral Assembly, hut that this mat- ; tcr was not In the form of an appear, j but in the form of a complaint. This statement provoked .'iscuss'on, I anJ the hour for recess having arrived,! the assembly took recess and carried the report of tho Judicial cummltteo over until tho evening session. W.

Tl?s committee has con? sidered all of the Judicial casOd of the assembly, and among tho number is the Sinnott case. It Is known that the committee will report not to sustain the request of Mr. Slnnott, and tho request embodied In several overtures and a memorial for a rehearing of his caso or for re? voking the Judgment ct thu assem? bly of mo. held In Lewisburg, W. Va. This report of tho committee will bo based upon opinion that the assembly of 1911 was sitting as a court when It rendered Its decision, and theroforo that decision was final, and no subse? quent assembly can revoke that de? cision or reopen the case. Should a similar case come beforo another as? sembly, and thut ussembly should be convinced that a different Judgment! than that rendered In the Slnnott case should bo rendered, It cnti follow that j course and render a different decision, but the committee will argue that no assembly can change the Judgment In ! the Slnnott case.

INDIGESTION Mi-O-Na Stomach Tab? lets Quickly End All Stomach Distress and Tone Up the System. People go on suffering from little stom? ach troubles for years and imagine they have a serious disease. They overeat, overdrink and force on the stomach a lot of extra work. Hut they never think that the stomach needs extra help to do extra work. If these people would take one or two. MI-O-NA tablets with or after meals, or' whenever distressed, it would be a great big help to the stomach in its strain of overwork. No matter what you cat or drink, MI-O-NA tablets will sweeten your sour stomach and stop gas belching, heaviness, sourness, fermentation or any stomach misery in a few minutes. And MI-O-NA not only promptly re? lieves all distress, but if taken regularly will absolutely cure indigestion by build? ing up the flabby overworked walls of the stomach and making them strong enough to digest the most hearty meal. Druggists everywhere offer MI-O-NA stomach tablets for 50 cents a box. The Tragic Drug Co. guarantee it. s MAIL ORDERS FILLED.
