SURVEY SHOWS COAL ENOUGH
TO MOVE ESSENTIAL TRANS
PORTATION TWO WEEKS.
Washington. July 21? (By the As
sociated Press)?The government h
prepared to "stand l>at for aP- i
or ten da>s to two weeks lt) lls at._ ;
ti:de tow aid the coal strike, tt w s
dicated today, in order to a9^rla^
whether sufficient production will oe
obtained through the reopening o
bifuminous mines under ruarant*
federal protection to assure the fuel
requirements of essential ind s ?
In the meantime, however, plans fo
distribution of the curtailed suppl> oi
coal are to be pushed, it was said
Secretary Hoover announced tonight ?
that he had called a meeting here next
Monday of representatives of pro^"
In* districts in Pennsylvania. W est
Virginia. Tennessee. Kentucky, A
bamiSd VlrKiniA .0 the pro
loosed "rationing" plan and to fon"
| late a policy desigued to restrain j
profiteering.
While all three parties to the re-1
cent conferences in W ashington, ?
government, operators and un on. ,
seemed satisfied that the situation as
il now stands was hopelessly dead?
locked, a new move for restoration or
(peace in the coal fields was seen in,
the resolution introduced in the sen
ate today by Senator King. Democrat,
("Utah, who proposed creation of a
mission of five to Investigate both
sides of the controversy and report its
'findings. No provision was made in
'the resolution for enforcing the flnd
?ings made by the commission, but Mr.
Klog expressed the opinion that such
& body set up by positive legislation
'would have more authority than did
i th?> conference approved by the Presi
dent. . ^ i .
Two Weeks' Coal Supply.
\ survev of remaining coal stocks
|was said to have convinced the ad
ministration officials that these were
!sufficient to permit a fortnight of
waiting to develop the response to the
^presidential invitation to the
ors to resume operation without add
ing unduly to the danger of an indus
trial shutdown through lack of fuel.
1 Secretary Hoover's program for
iemergency distribution was saul to
> contemplate the organization of a
? central committee here which would
IRCt through local committees in the
'.principal coal producing sections.
' "Plana have been formulated. -Mr.
iHoover said, "for ro-operation o f the
'department of commerce and the in
terstate commerce commission and
ithp department of justice, by which
[with the co-operation of ? responsible
! operators the control of prices and
distribution <-an be effected. The plan
lis.now before the department of jus
tice for their consideration, and it in
lvc4ves the pooling of coal in each dis
trict and the distribution of cars un
!der the authority and direction of the
government, with the co-operation of
tbb operators' committees."
. Power of the government to act
through the Interstate commerce com
imission under the Interstate com
merce act was understood to be the
'legal point before the justice depart
ment which is the effective force of
the administration's emergency coal
scheme.
To Check Profiteering.
With the coal In each producing dis
trict pooled. It was believed that tho
?central committee could direct
idistribution of fuel to needy points
through the assignment of cars ani
could facilitate coal movement by
priority orders from the
commerce commission, while at
same time keeping a cheek on undue ;
prke advances.
There were strong indications in
administration circles tonight that the i
government expected to'rely on the i
distribution of coal being produced in !
the non-union holds to supply the _
railroads and necessary consumers !
during the emergency. . ]
Tiie aim of the administration, it
was understood, would be tlrst to in* ?
sure sufficient fuel to keep the wheels
of the country's transportation system
turning, and then enable the distrlbu- j
t:on of coal to the other more ueces- i
sary industries, bearing! in mind the .
peculiar needs of the northwest and
N( w Kngland states.
Tendency to Raise Prices.
There has been evidence that the j
plan already adopted for restraint of i
coal prices to the liarfield basis
thieatens to break down, .Mr. Hoover ?
said today.
Hans will be discussed at the Mon* j
day conference, he said, for making
the voluntary restiain of profiteering ,
effective in the otic or two districts
which have refused to co-operate and
are now demanding $3.50 a ton fo:
coal at the mine, and farther to make
it effective agaiust the minority of
Irresponsible operators iti other dis
tricts who have broken away from the
agreement.
Offer $8 at Mines.
"The responsible operators are
holding to the price," Mr. Hoover
continued. "On the other hand, some
panicky railway buyers and others are
sending out orders today offering
at the mines."
Reports at today's cabintt meeting
on results to date of the President's i
appeal for opening of mines in strike .
territory did not indicate substantial
new production .but more time was !
[said to be needed for a test of its .
success.
King Presents His Plan. , I
Washington. July 21.? Senator i
King, Democrat, I'tah, today present-;
:ed to the senate his plan to settle the !
,coal strike, when he introduced a ;
!resolution providing for a statutory;
[committee appointed by the President }
ito investigate the coal strike and,
'make the findings to be proclaimed by j
the President, but without any provi-j
sion for enforcing its findings.
The resolutions would appropriate ,
$100,000 for expenses of the commls- >
jsion. - |
t'nder Senator King's resolution the j
[committee would be composed of five
j members, tl would hear representa
tives of miners and operators, "make ;
findings as to the piaterial or control- j
ling facts in the controversy." make ;
j recommendations as to wages, and re
port its findings to the President. !
Senator King said he thought a >
statutory body such as he proposed I
(would have more weight than one j
merely appointive. The resolution
was referred to the labor cimmittee.
