Voters. By DAVID LAWRENCE. (Special Despatch to The Reformer.) Copyright 1922. WASHINGTON. Aug. 26. Congress has begun its brainstorm on tlie coal strike. ; For months the .situation has been drifting without intervention by the government. Now that coal supplies are low and the deadlock between the min ers and operators in the anthracite fields continues, the outbursts from individual members of congress arc fiery. It is typical of other crises nothing is done till the situation is acute and then there are all sorts of accusations as to who is responsible for allowing the crisis to develop. Tlie Democrats are blaming President Harding for procras tination. Members of congress of both parties are reluctant to pass any legis lation just before the coming elections. They expect the chief executive to set tle the trouble and get coal. In the midst of it all there has broken out another conflict between the two schools of thought who believe respec tively in centralized government and the anatomy of the states. Senator Bo rah is as vehement a champion of states' rights s any Jcffersonian Democrat. He recommended the action of Governor Miller in calling the state legislature in social session to handle the coal emer gency. President Harding and members of the cabinet, like Herbert Hoover, believe this is a situation for. the individual states to. handle. They recognize the doubt which exists as to the constitu tional right of the federal government to seize any eor.l.mine. They acknowledge that no such doubt prevails with respect to the power of the several states. Governor Sproul . of , Pennsylvania, in whose state the big anthracite field lies, is one of the state executives who is known to be ready to exercise his powers to the fullest extent to supply coal to the nation. If the deadlock is unbreak able, action from the governor of Penn sylvania can be expected and it will have tlie warm moral support of the White House.' - . ' No Seizure of Mines. Seizure of the oa mines by the fed eral government can be dismissed as un likely. The most the President wants I to do is. to regulate the price of such coal as. is produced and to do this under the constitutional prerogatives relating to interstate commerce. Congress is reluc tant to grant price-fixing powers on any thing just now, though the pressure of public opinion may change that attitude any moment, for as the reflex of popular discontent over the coal situation is car ried back to the national capital the po litical value of energetic action instead of evasion will become- apparent.

WALTER HHAIGH 39 Washington Street see .the. political advantage of being on the side which does something instead of nothing in the emergency. It is doubt ful whether the. passage of' the WInslow bill merely appointing a commission of inquiry will, .suffice, though many mem bers of congress are hoping that is all they will have to do. With the unsettled conditions on the railroads due to the shopmen's strike and the certainty that the country will Miffer hardships next winter on account of the coal tStrike, congress is restlessly trying to find out what it ought to do. The prediction can be made that unless both strikes are .settled this week all sorts of drastic projiosals will find ex-. presdon in the senate and house. Ship Subsidy Withdrawn. The .President recognizes tlje temper of congress and has quietly withdrawn' the ship subsidy bill from the calendar: of urgent business and permitted it to go over until the next session. Fear that congress would shelve the measure and administer an untimely defeat to the White House is unquestionably at the bottom of the move, but when the No-, vetnber elections are past, the President will renew with vigor his effort to cre ate a merchant marine along the lines of his recent message to congress. Another reason for deferring ship subsidy is the President's own absorption in the indus trial situation. He lias been able to think of little else and he realizes that lie. could- not focus public attention on the merchant marine bill while so many other vital matters are acutely calling for consideration. ... . The. rail and coal strikes have unset the president's plans. There are indica tions that they will upset the plans also of members, of .congress who have bee counting on an early adjournment... If congress should get entangled in the rail and co;il strikes there is no telling how soon this sr?ssiont will end. Congress gives1 the impression of just now realizing tlie seriousness of the in dustrial situation and while there may be relatively little action, at least there will be the usual emission of oratorical steam and political recrimination.
