Britain Threatens to
Lay Off Spinners;
| Grain Supply Short
Throughout Russia
1 Cable Editor, The Associated Press
Shadows are deeping over the in
dustrial workers of England and |
Russia, In the one case work for
the unemployed and continued jobs J
for those who have them, in the oth
er the problem of getting bread to |
the city workers, are engaging the
attention of state councils.
A report from a British govern
ment board said flatly that 200,000
coal miners must be moved from
their present abodes as they have
no chance to make a living where
they are now domiciled. Then rail
way workers and managers got to
gether and accepted salary and wage
cuts from the highest to the lowest
ranks in order to help their com
panies bridge the chasm of dwin
dling traffic.
Spinnera to Quit
A third great basic industry of
the home land of the British em
pire, the cotton spinning mills of
Manchester, faces a complete shut
down. Mill owners have seized upon
an individual's dispute with his
union as an excuse for threatening
a lockout of 800,000 mill hands, but
back of this is a condition of de
► pression in the whole industry that
has defied the best thought of the
mill owners. English mills must ex
port most of their product and new
factories in Japan, India and China,
where cotton goods are the regular
clothing of much of the population,
has reduced the English market by
a third.
If these half million mill workers
are locked out, the English unem
ployed total will jump to around
l,7.r>0,000. The situation got into
parliament when Ramsay Macdonald,
laborite and former prime minister,
moved a vote of censure against the
government because it had failed to
find an answer to the problem. But
the house defeated the motion. Mr.
Macdonald has started a vacation
trip to Canada.
Russia Short of Grain
Russia is struggling with a short
grain crop, the third in succession.
The peasants apparently are unwill
ing to let got of their product for
the benefit of city workers at
government prices. Increases :n
prices have been ordered and
the peoples’ trade commissariat has
been instructed to see that ‘‘a time
ly supply of industrial goods” is
sent to the country districts.
The Russian moujik seems disin
clined to worry about the state of
the cities so long as there is mut
ton. black bread and / ,i in the lard
ers of his own village.
The ‘‘town and country” feeling
showed from a different angle in
M cxico where the agrarians declar
ed a war of political extermination
against the labor party.
Light, widely scattered showers
occurred within the last 48 hours in
the cotton belt, the middle Mississip
pi valley, and in the Nortnwest. It
was rather cool throughout the re
gion of the Great Lakes .nd the
Ohio valley this morning, but else

Must Get Court Order
For Place on Run
Off Ballot
The name of Thomas B. Love of!
Dallas, candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor, will not be printed on the run
off ballots in Cameron county unless
the decision of the fourth court of I
civil appeals is reversed by the su-j
preme court.
A statement to this effect was made
Monday by Judge Volney W. Taylor,
Cameron county democratic chairman,!
following the announcement that Bar-;
ry Miller was leading in the race for
the lieutenant governorship, with
Lovei n second place.
Cameron cor-*;* rr ifficial returns*
show that 516 voters wrote in the |
name of Love on the lallot in the i
Saturday primaries.
“The decision of the fourth court
of appeals still holds,” Mr. Taylor
said, “anud the name of Mr. Love will
not be printed cn the run-off primary ■
ballot uni ■ » ordered by the court." !
Mr. Taylor e-ipre sed the opinion
that similar action would be taken by
a number of other counties in the
event the state committee should
certify the name of Love to the coun
ty committees.
J. D. Parnell of Fort Worth is third
on the list, according to the unof
ficial returns, and it is understood
he will inaugurate a contest to elim
inate Love from the run-off. and in
the event this succeeds he will Is
Barry Miller's opponent.
W hile the legal phases are not
clear, it is probable that the state
committee will be called upon to take
action. It is believed that in view of
the decision in the Cameron county
rase, the state committee may refuse
to certify Love as a democrat. Re
ports prior to the election were to
the effect that a number of members
of the state committee would oppose
certification of Love in the event ho
received sufficient votes in the first
primary to place him in the run-off.
“Mr. Parnell has the right to con
test the placing of Love on the run
off primary ballot.” Judge Taylor
said, “and in view of decisions of the
supreme court in a case in which
virtually the same principe was in
volved, I feel assured the contest
would be successful.”

Railroads Win Award
Of 60 Million In
I. C. C. Decision
Railroads carrying mail for the post
office department were awarded an
ircrensed pay of approximately $13,
000.000 per yesr under terms of an
Interstate Commerce Commission or
der today, and in addition granted a
lump sum of approximately $45,000,
000 for underpayment which the
commission held the government had
made since July, 1925.
A majority of the commission held
that trunk line railroads were en
titled to increrses of 15 per cent over
the present compensation to become
effective August 1.
The petitions for the increase hav
ing been filed in July, 1925, the com
mission ruled that the carriers would
be entitled to collect the new rates
from that time. Independent short
lines operating over distances of un
der 100 miles were granted an in
crease of 80 per cent over their pres
ent compensation, but the commis
sion refused to allow n change in the
system of making mail rates and de
nied a railroad proposal to group
such charges by territory. Some
minor changes were made in the
present methods of calculating the
mail charges.
Commissioners Lewis. Porter, Mr
Manamy, Taj,lor and Eastman dis
sented in part or in whole from the
majority ruling, ror.-.missioner Lewis
objected particularly to the retro
active awerd while Commissioners
Eastman and McManamy declared
that the accounting methods by
which the increases were decided
upon were unsound.

NEW YORK, July 80.—Fifty
persona were injured, three proba
bly fatally, when a heavily loaded
seven-car elevated train crashed into
a stalled train on the Sixth avenue
line at Columbus avenue and Sixty
ninth street last night. More than
1,000 passengers on the two trains
were thrown into a panic. Fire ac
companied the collision.
Trains carrying home excursion
ists from seaside resorts were run
ning in close succession shortly be
fore 10 p. m, when a fire started in
the wheel box of a car two trains
ahead of those that crashed.
The passengers of the train in
trouble were ordered out. The fol
lowing train attempted to push the
stalled train into the yards near the
Polo grounds. The heavy burden
was too much and a short circuit
resulted, throwing out the power on
the whole line.
A following train also was stalled
and then the fourth train, traveling
under its momentum after the cur
rent went off, crashed into the
stalled train just ahead. The rear
