Victory Coliseum is
Proposed as Tribute

A movement for the establishment
of a "Victory Coliseum." as a tribute
to the St. Joseph county men who
have served in the great war, at

A committee appointed at the last
monthly meeting of the council has
drafted a set of resolutions favoring
the project and advocating that tho

The Mibjet t was broached by llev.
Dr. A. .M. Keils, vice president of tho
council at the last meeting, follow
ing the inaugural address by YV. K.
Miller, president. 1. M. Hammer
schmidt also endorsed the project.
The latter ascribed much of the po
litical unrest of phe age to the fact
that different factions of the people
do not understand tach other and
asserted that class prejudice would
be eliminated through the use of an
assembly hall where labor and oapi
tal could meet together on a com
mon ground and reach a satisfactory

In fauruhing the proposal Dr.
Kell said in part:
"There are under consideration
several suggestions as to the nest
method of common' 'rating th.e alor
of tear soldiers who have responded
to the rail of the colors. The .sug
gestions all indicate a worthy desiro
to offer a titting tribute for ervice

of those warriors who have pone

monument now and it is not "a

are inadequate it would be much;

Investigation by Senate Man

WASHINGTON, Nov. .10. Legis
lation to prevent the recurrence of
coal shortage in the United States
at any time in tho future, and bv
increasing the supply to reduce th5
price, will be introduced and vig
orously pushed in the senate as the
result of the coal investigation now
being conducted by the senate man
The investigation, begun at tho
suggestion of Mayor Hylan of New
York, when he was prevented from
buying coal in the open market to
be supplied to the people at cost,
has widened the scope until it ha?
now taken in practically every" as
pect of the coal situation. Threi
suggestions for dealing with tho

fore the committee today. Kacn

barred from transporting coal upon
which the producer has been com
pelled to pay more than 30 cents

prohibited from transporting coal
for any lessee who Ins held coal
land undeveloped fo more than five
H That railways be forbidden to
;arry coil of companies that prevent
independent operators from min
ing territory adjacent to their hold
ings that can be mined to better ad
vantage by independent companies.
In addition there is the ugeestion
put forward by one member of the
committee that the government tt-ke
over the coal mines and either op
erate them or lense them under the
secretary of the interior. While Sens.
Kenyon and Tarda man may he
counted upon to vote that such leg
islation be recommended to the sen
ate, the remainder of the commit
tee is expected to vote against it.
The committee has come upon
evidence that its members say war

tion. The probe, which was ex
pected to come to an end after fuel

authorities of New York hail been
heard, now will continue indefinitely.

The increase in the price of these papers is made necessary by increase in tiie
