You needn't worry about getting "dirty" coal or "slatey" coal if you buy Harrisburg (Saline County), Illinois coal. The veins from which our supply comes are unusual in their freedom from foreign matter. A ton of Har risburg (Saline County), Illinois Coal is all coal all heat. Perhaps it isn't quite as good as Pocahontas or your favorite eastern coal but there will be no eastern coal in South Bend this year, and Harrisburg (Saline County), Illinois coal is The Best Goal You Can Get The government controls production, trans portation and prices on coal. The government has devised a zone system to avoid another coal famine and to help win the war by cutting out long hauls. Every coal dealer knows that Harrisburg (Saline County), Illinois coal is the best soft coal that will be sold in South Bend this vear. If von order it now, you can get plenty. If you wait, you probably wiP have to take inferior coal from Indiana or Kentucky tields. We Can Fill Your Bin Today With Fresh Mined Coal.

Xo public hearings are to be given on the many resolutions introduced in the house on the Irish question. Chairman Flood of the foreign af fairs committee .oday notified all those who have asked for hearings that there will be none because they would be an interference and an em barrassment to a co-belligerent of the United States. A letter setting forth this Jecision has been sent to large numbers of individuals, organizations and other.s who asked for hearings. John J. Curley, city collector of Boston, was Jone of these. Chairman Flood's letter to him follows: "Some days ago I received a let ter from you addressed to me as chairman of the committee oi. for eign affairs, in exactly the srnie phraseology as a letter sent nie on March 14 by Mrs. Hannah Sheeny Skefi.ngton of Ireland, which letter was signed by a number of ladies and gentlemen from New York. Philadelphia and other places. Since receiving your letter. I have received a number of thse letters, and will probably receive many more of them. "In your letter you call the atten tion of the committee on foreign af fairs to resolutions which have been introduced in the house of repre sentatives, recognizing the political independence of Ireland, and dealing with other phases of the Irish ques tion, and requesting that a date be set for a public hearing by the com mittee on foreign affairs to (a) those representatives whose reso lutions on the Irish question have been referred to the committee on foreign affairs for consideration, and (b) to the representatives of re sponsible and patriotic organiza tions of Americans who have filed petitions with the speaker of the house and with the committee in behalf of those resolutions. "I have given careful considera tion to your communication, and the other letters of similar charac ter, as well as to the resolutions to which they refer; and have reached the conclusion that it would not be for the public interest, at the pres ent time, to grant your request for such a hearing. The serious con sideration by the committee on for eign affairs of these resolutions might well be considered as consti tuting an interference in the internal affairs of another nation, and that nation one of our co-belligerents; and could scarcely fail to prove a source of serious embarrassment to a nation associated with the United States in the war. Turn Down Itcquost. "I therefore regret that my sense of duty, not only to this country, but also to a nation associated with the United States in the war. irakes it necessary to give an unfavorable answer to your request for such a public hearing." Congress has been bombarded ttith pleas in various forms for ac tion on the Irish home rule ques tion for many j-ears, and the move ment of the Irish organizations and individuals became acute at the last session of congress and was renew ed in the present session. Speaker Clark, Democratic Lead er Kitchin, former Chairman Fitz- C raid of the appropriations com mittee, Reps. Gallivan, O'Shaugh nessy, Ithode Island, Ienroot. Wis- . consin. Webb. North Carolina, and ! approximately 135 other democratic and republican members of the bouse, together with the socialist member, joined in a messace which they cabled on AprIT 28 of last year, to Lloyd George, urging settlement j of the Irish quetion. I "We, as members of the Ameri j can congress," they cabled, "sug J crest th.it m thing will add more to i the enthusiasm of America In this war than the settlement now of the Irish problem. We believe that all Americans will be deeply stirred and their enthusiastic effort enlist ed if the ttritish empire will now settle this problem In accordance with the principles announced by Pres't Wilson in his address to con gress asking it to declare war on autocracy for the world-wide safety of democracy and of small nation alities." Irish nationalists at a meeting of 2.000 persons in Huffalo last April, to commemorate the first anniver sary of the Irish (Kaster week) re bellion of 1916. and as a memorial for those executed, adopted resolu tions which besides pledging sup port to America in the war. request ed that congress demand of Knuland that she immediately declare Ire land's independence, the psycho logical effect of which action on the American soldiers of Irish birth or extraction would be resolutions said.
