According to tho local dealers there is little coal on hand in the city now. "only enough to keep the equipment of the industries going." said one of the leaders, "and there are going to be many people freez ing in South Hend this winter."

Chicago Price High. One of tho dealers said he could get plenty of coal in Chicago if he wanted to pay tho price for it. but he could not afford to pay what they asked, as he would have to retail it at a price the consumer would not care to pay. The coal is on an open market, he said, 'and the industries get it because they pay the price. They are bidding for the coal and get it because we cannot compete with them. The mine operators claim they can produce more coal if they are given more cars. The poor facilities in transportation were the only rea son known to the local dealers for the scarcity in coal production, and now that the railroads have secured their increase they will be able to put on more cars to cope with the situation. Not all the local dealers were in sympathy with tho chambers p'an and voted sending one of their rep resentatives to Indianapolis on Sept. They thought it was safer to hope that the present situation would take car of Itself rather than fight for what they wanted. Population of Nutmeg State Shows Increase Ir A?ecLited Press: WASHINGTON.

Cox, voicing the democratic party's stand on the League oi" Na tions, declared for tho league and criticized the plan put forth by Sen. Harding, Ohio's third presidential candidate, in his recent speech. Mr. Watkins, prohibition presidential candidate, criticized both the plans sponsored by His two opponents and also criticized both the re-publican and democratic parties for not tak ing a stand on prohibition, which he declared to be the paramount issue. Mr. Roosevelt epoke very briefly of agricultural progress made by the west. He left Tuesday night for New York. Issues Statement Earlier in the day Gov. Cox had issued a statement replying to testi mony offered by Will M. Hays, chair man of the republican national com mittee, before the senate sub-com- initteo investigating campaign ex penses, in which the governor de clared ai "absolutely untrue and false" Hays' alleged assertion that it vas tho policy of the republican j committee to hold campaign contri butions to ono thousand dollars each. Gov. Cox based hit assertion on what purported to be an offlcial document j issued by the republican committee and which he stated, showed that subscriptions were to be sought in ex cess of $5,000. In his discusaion of the League of Nations in his state fair speech Gov. Cox made reference to approval of the plan recently announced by Sen. Harding', his republican opponent, by Vlserount Grey, former foreign sec retary of England. ."Well." the gov ernor said, "we are not going to permit Viscount Grey or any other Engrlish statesman to write our agreement. We are not for an Eng lish league. We are for a world League of Nations." Previous to his, declaration on the League of Nations, Gov. Cox had bpoken of the suffering and misery in Russia, Germany, Austria and other European nations, asserting that things would start toward normal as soon as a definite indemnity had been fixed for Germany to pay. Eng land and France he asserted, were divided on the amount of indemnity and it would require the voice of America to decide the controversy. Germany Waiting "I may surprise you," Gov. Cox n'aid "when I say that the people all over Germany are hoping and pray ing that the voice of America will be asserted in the international affairs of the world and that America will cast the deciding vote and determine what the indemnity ought to be." Dr. Watkins declared the league of Nations should not' have been made a part of tho peace treaty, but he resorted "the time is at hand for a resil, not neiminal nor pretended Ieague of Nations." He declared there will bo a league, of Nations and that the United States will be a party to it, addin "mark that prophecy and the politicians can not prevent it. It only remains a question of what kind of a league and what shall be our attitude towards it, but the league when It takes its final form, will be mado in time peace, and not be tsed as a club to b" waved over the heads of legislators to compel action on a treaty designed to end present conditions and bring peace for the time being."

UPHAM ADMITS PARTY DEPENDS OK OUTS ORGANIZATION W HARDING FAVORS DEVELOPMENT OF WESTERN COUNTRY G. O. P. Presidential Nominee Delivers Speech to Group of Governors. By Associated Press: MARION. O., Aug. 1. The Roosevelt policy of conservation to develop the went and insure an ade quate food supply was advocated by Sen. Harding here Tuesday in a speech ta a delegation of republican governors. The republican presi dential nominee also suggested that many soldiers of the great war might be provided homes in the undevel oped western country' and declared the duties of reclamation and devel opment rested both on federal and state authorities and on public as well as private financing. Gov. Frank O. Lowden. of Illi nois, who was a leading candidate for the presidential nomination at the Chicago convention, was spokes man of the delegation of Kovprnors, and in a short speech praised the "dignity and the self respect" with which the senator had conducted his campaign.

Harding pledged himself to exert his influence to prevent encroachments on the sev eral states of the Union.

Ho asserted that peril to the nation would result unlrs.s there were a greater development of ag riculture, in comparison to the growth of tho city population. "It was against profligacy," he said "that Roosevelt raised his voice and exercised the veto power. II started the great reclamation move ment. Roosevelt performed a great service to the nation and what he did for his time wo must carry for ward to the future." Guard Against Monopoly. Sen. Harding abl declared that in its conservation policy the govern ment must guard against private monopoly but said he had "no par ticular preference" between tho em- ployment of private capital and pub lic funds to attain tho highest pro ductivity of natural resources. He asserted that the country needed a resumption of the republican con servation program inaugurated by Roosevel: bit "neglected since 19U." Eight republican governors and several gubernatorial nominees were in tho delegation which included be sides Gov. Lowden. Governors Sproul, Pennsylvania; Goodrich. In diana; Reeckman. Rhode Island.

The governor added that h- could only say that "I am going away extrem-ly wc-'I satisfied with his attitude and un derstanding rf tho whe.lf situation." In hLs address Gov. Lowden prais ed Sen.

IZxplnlns IXcmocratic Talk. Efforts of Sen. Edge to get former Chairman Cummings to admit the legitamacy of the Hays-Upham bud get of $3.079.000 submitted to the committee, succeeded to the extent that "such expenditure would be. legitimate if legitimately expended". If this was to be in addition to state , county and independent campaign funds, employed to promote the presidency, through local organiza tions and "Independent propaganda societies", however, he added, "it may prove only a breastworks for larger expenditures from the rear". Questione-d as to recent democratic contemplation of a campaign fund or $10,000.000. the former chairman said it had been spoken of. "bnt only as a probable necessity to cope with the huge fund that the republicans were raising". He said democratic leaders figured that they ought to have at least 66 cents for every re publican dollar. Treas. Upham flushed warm when Sen.
