ANOTHER SUIT FILED AGAINST NEWCOAL BODY Specific Shipment Clause Held Unconstitutional by Chi cago Company. SAYS ORDERS CONFLICT A°suit testing the validity of the action of the Special Coal and Food Commission of Indiana in ordering coal companies to make specific shipment* of coal to cer tain Indiana concerns in specific amounts and on certain dates, was filed before Circuit Judge Harry Chamberlin today by the J. K. Dering Coal Company of Chicago. The coal company in its petition, asks that the orders transmitted by Jesse Kschbach, as chairman of the special commission, seeking to compel the com pany to ship carloads of coal from its Indiana mines in Vigo County and Ver milion County, he declared null and void and be ordered vacated by the court. CONFLICTS WITH BASIC LAW OF r. S.. CHABGF.. The Dering Coal Company claims, in the suit, that the actions und orders of the Special Coal and Food Commission are illegal and Invalid because it con flicts with Section 1 of Article 14 of the Constitution of the United States which provides that no act shall “deprive any person of liberty or property without due process of law." and the coal com pany claims the actions of the Goodrich coal commission does deprive them of the “liberty and freedom of contract in re spect to property.” The complaint sets np numerous or ders of the coal commission ordering the coal company to make specific ship ments of coal on certain dates. The company claims that some of their coal is suitable only for use in by-products, gas. coking aud metalurgtcal work. COMPANY BOUND BY FORMER. CONTRACT.

The company also Is under valid orders of the Interstate Commerce Commission to deliver coal to cars furnished by the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Kailroad. The plaintiffs contend that the State coal commission can not legally Inter fere with former contracts and orders of other commissions when it is impossible for the coal company to make the ship ments as ordered by the State Coal Com mission.

Expressions of opinion obtained from Indianapolis men representing many different lines of endeavor all agree on the real saving tlint Is to he obtained through the success of the Community Chest organization and policies. Different reasons have been advanced for the support of the chest by different advocates, hut all agree that In the abandonment of Innumerntde drives In favor of one drive for all the community 13 best served. Edward A. Kahn says: Nearly fifty different solicitations are combined In the one campaign for funds for the Community Chest, to be con ducted during the week of Nov. 29 for the support of charitable and philan thropic institutions of Indianapolis. Through the one campaign, the sub scribers to the chest protect themselves from many appeals. Indianapolis cifl sens should appreciate this fact, and liberally contribute to the Community Chest. There Is no better way !n iny opinion of financing the various Institu tions than through a centralized bureau. Mgr. Francis If. Gavlsk says: What Is the Community Chest for which there will he an organized drive for funds during the week of Nov. 29? It Is a common purse of fifty or more benevolent and philanthropic agencies In Indianapolis. It Is the united expression of the community towards Its charities. Better one big collection for all the char ities than fifty solicitations for fifty good works. All of us have our favorite charity. Even that one will fare better under the Community Chest than under the separate canvass for funds. During the drive week, let us not limit our vision to our political, church or racial horizons. As members of the great community of Indianapolis let us expand the view to the entire field of community welfare. Let every one share in filling the Community Chest as we did two years ago with the War Chest. It Is a worthy undertaking, and Indianapolis al ways puts through that sort of thing. Evans Woollen says: I am heartily in favor of the'Com munity Cheat for Indianapolis and Its campaign for funds, for the support of charitable and philanthropic Institutions which will be conducted during the week of Nov. 29. I f.s-1 sure that the Com munity Chest will meet with the general support of Indianapolis citizens. In my opinion this is the best way of financing charitable and philanthropic institutions —by combining some forty or fifty char itable individual campaigns into one gen eral campaign—thus relieving the sub scribers from a multitude of appeals. Stoughton A. Fletcher says: If for no other reason, the Indianapolis Community Chest campaign for funds should he supported by Indianapolis peo ple generally, because It will take tha place of many campaigns by Individual institutions. It would be a bad thing Indeed for the city If the various char itable and philanthropic Institutions were to be compelled to make separate cam paigns as was done In former days. I am heartily in favor of the Community Chest and its campaign for funds, to be conducted during the week of Nov. 29.

PASTORS OF FOUR STATES WEB IN THEIR PRAISE Four Ministers, Though from Different Parts of the Coun try, Have the Same Attitude With Regard to Nerv-Worth. They W r rite Letters Recom mending It, and These Letters Offer Indisputable Evidence. Nerv-Worth gives real results and Is a real medicine. It does not act as a mere stimulant, nor depend upon alcoholic stimulation to produce re suits. The ministers whose letters are reproduced below have tested Nerv-Worth, and found that It is really a preparation of highest merit, and because they know that It gives results, and has real medicinal value, they recommend it to others. Noth ing could be more convincing than a group of statements from gentlemen or the cloth. Read what they say: Rev. Mr. Tate, Pontiac Ave., Dayton, Ohio “For five years I was In a very nervous condition,” said Rev. Tate. "I couldn’t find any relief, it seemed, until I took a bottle of Nerv-Worth. I didn't have any nerve force to di gest my food. I could eat only a few things. 1 was advised by my doctors not to eat any cold lunches. Gas would form ou my stomach, and cause terrible bloating, my blood was also in very bad condition, and my circulation poor. My legs would get cold and numb, and my hands would also get the same way. I am now nervous no more, and 1 can eat any thing any time. My stomach and digestion are tn fine condition, I have no more bloating, my circulation is good and there is no numbness and cold feeling in my legs and hands. I am feeling fine, and have regained mv health and vigor. Nerv-Worth changed everything." Rev. H. Malone, Meadville, Pa. “I was in a terribly run-down con dition. had no appetite, and couldn’t sleep. I was very nervous, and my stomach xvas bad. Gas would form Kill That Cold With CASCARA || QUININE FOR AND Colds, Cough* QLa Grippe Neglected Colds are Dangerous Take no chances.

It is now apparent that the demorali zation of Wrangel's soldiers had been under way for some time before the collapse. Twenty-four hours after the faU of Simferopol and Sebastopol local soviet governments were administering all public affairs. They had been es tablished a month previously, but had to conduct their affairs by underground system. The first telegram from the Crimean soviet government was received by the Moscow government Tuesday night. At that time It was not known definitely that General Wrangel had escaped to Turkey upon a ship, and the message aroused some expectation here that Wrangel might be a prisoner. Red soldiers captured an order of the day signed by General Wrangel saying, that as the allies were giving him no further military assistance, ho extended permission to all his soldiers to sur render themselves to the Reds. Military experts writing In tha local newspaper, Pravda, say that the Impor tance of the victory in Crimea can not be overestimated. ~. ■ ..... j FOE Grip, Influenza, Sore Throat Humphrey*’ Borneo.

After 'taking one bottle of Nerv-Worth, 1 felt a change and after taking the second bottle, I can cheerfully say I feel fine. As to my appetite. I am almost ashamed to tell, but in fact I can eat anything and everything. I am no longer bothered with flutter ing of the heart. I am thankful for Nerv-Worth for the benefits I have eceived from it." Rev, John T. Hickman, Salem, W. Va. “I take pleasure in saying that as a general tonic, Nerv-Worth is the best I have ever used I now sleep more soundly, my appetite is better, and my stomach is in better condition than for years before. No one needing a tonic should fail to give Nerv-Worth an honest trial.’’ Rev. Mr. Jenkins, Cumberland, Md. "I have used Nerv-Worth in my family with the result that I am will ing to give this testimonial, believ ing it will help the suffering wherever it is possible for Nerv-Worth to reach the case,” said Rev. Jenkins. “I am doing this for the good of others, and in giving this testimonial to the effectiveness of Nerv-Worth. I have not been influenced by any argument for Nerv-Worth doing what it claims. I am, in truth, as far as I can discern, speaking of the prop erties of Nerv-Worth.” Nerv-Worth does not contain any artificial or alcoholic stimulation to deceive the user. It acts in a sensi ble way through real medicinal value to give the desired results. Nothing ■ould be more convincing than the letters from the ministers above. If you suffer, try Nerv-Worth. Give it a trial, and you will find that it will give you results. It is sold on a money-back guarantee.
