Notes Increase in Small Package lusi ness Past Two Months. The express business is a good bar ometer of trade, according to L. K.

Fluctuation in the express business, according to Mr. Stafford, usually pre cedes like changes in general business by several weeks. The express people are confident that business resumption is near at hand. At their New York ( thee, it is stated that an unusual num ber of bujers have visited New York city recently and that many concerns have a full corps of travelling salesmen on the road. The express company is getting ready for a return of the small package busi ness, and the first two months of the year showed a noticeable increase in this traffic. As the first step in the preparations made for business increase, the express company is experimenting with steel col lapsible packing trunks, which are ex pected to s;ivv even greater protection from crushing, soiling, damage bv nmis- "' lUUl V""'"" MI inents. In addition to thi. the carrier has purchased 1.IHM1 packing trunks, which are used, not only for protective pur post.

COAL STRIKE SURE; EARLY PEACE LIKELY Government Taking No Steps to Avert Suspension of Anthracite Mining April t. Says Davis. NKW YORK. Mar. h 17. The govern ment will make no effort to avert a sus pension of mining operations in the an thracite coal fields on April L Tin Msi tion of the Wa-hiugtoii admiui-tratiou was made clear here yesterday by Secre tary of Labor .fames .1.- Davis, who said that the government had adopted a '"hands-oft"" Milicy toward the wage nego tiations between the hard coa' miners and operators now in progre-s in thi- city. "If the negotiations are protracted.'" sjtid Secretary Davis, "a ml the strike is of such length as to cause suffering and hardship, the government of course will act. I am hopeful that the miners and operators will get together and adjust their own difficult ies." Secretary Davis said that the govern ment contemplated no new move toward preventing a strike of bituminous miners until after all replies had been received to his request sent the operators of the central competitive field asking them to meet the operators in joint conference. Dr. F. G. Davis, government concilia tor, who has been following the anthra cite negotiations, said yesterday that sus pension of work in the hard coal region was a certainty, but he expected the ne gotiations to progress smoothly toward a new contract. I'nless the public become panic-stricken, he said, and buys coal far in excess of its actual requirements, the suspension will not cause a shortage. There is a seven weeks' supply of coal in domestic sizes on hand at this 'time and a larger supply of steam coal, he said. ltepresentativcs of the Fnited Mine Workers in a formal statement said that a reduction in the wages of miners would not mean a reduction in the selling price of coal. "Coal operators are busily tell ing the public that coal prices are too high aud that they, must come down." said the .statement, "If the operators were to reduce waves per cent it would mean only a reduc tion of alxuit 4 per cent in the selling price to the consumer, who would not ret a lower price. I'.ut it would mean a great neai to tne miner to have his earnings cut -0 per cent. There is no scoot I reason in the world why coal should sell for five linn's the cost of production." THE WEATHER.
