The anthracite committee of the United States fuel administration has made a clear statement concerning the anthracite situation. Anthracite and fuel of all kinds are in greater demand than ever before. The war has drawn down the anthracite mine Workers from one hundred and seventy-seven thousand to about one hundred and forty-five thousand. A fur ther reduction in the force seems certain. There were no carried-over stocks of anthracite when the present coal year began. The men respon sible for carrying on the industry are working with full knowledge of the facts. They know that every ton of anthracite that can be pro duced between now and next spring will be needed. Every effort will be made "to utilize every process to increase to the maximum the quantity which can be used in domestic con sumption." It is important that the labor power be increased in volume and effectiveness. The public—consumers and dqfc-lers—must co operate with the fuel administration in meas ures to prevent waste or needless use of anthra cite. In no other way can a coal shortage and suffering be prevented. The committee while giving timely warnings of the seriousness of the situation, takes a hopeful view. It says there is a shortage of steel, of rubber, of cop per, of wheat, of a hundred and one things. An thracite is not an exception, it continues, but it believes that with due public consideration of the facts concerning supply and distribution all actual needs can be supplied. This last state- ,.HM .UM '$ A oversight. ment i§, in a way, encouragement for the peo ple" of Iowa, who were, according to reports, to be denied a supply of anthracite this coming winter. That the ruling against this state may be revised in a hope held out in the statement of the anthracite committee, and the protest presented to Fuel Administrator Garfield by the entire Iowa congressional delegation probably will bear the desired fruit. Evidently the com mittee is doing the best it can and certainly it is entitled to all the help the public can give, barring anything that has the appearance of discrimination, hfcfc. .11 SIPOBS NAVAL BATTLE IMPEND? i| Early this'month Rear Admiral leaves in formed that the British navy had reason to expect that the German battle, fleet would soon come out of hiding for a trial of strength upon the sea. By way of Italy eomes a rumpr that the hour for this attempt is so near that Ger man officers on shore leave have been recalled to their ships which have been ordered to stand ready for immediate service. It has long been considered probable that the German navy would come out for action when the decisive battle was in progress on land. If that im pends or has begun, the clash on the sea may be imminent. If the Huns are staking their all upon their drive, it is hardly thinkable that they will permit the war to go against them without using the navy of which they have boasted so much. Conceivably they would sooner see their ships sunk than to surrender them without a blow. But there are heavier odds against tliem now than ever before, for the United States is there, according to Admiral Gleaves, with one hundred Mid Germanv bombed Paris on that same dav. fifty war craft manned by forty thousand men. Advices from Hamburg to which London at taches some importance are that Germany has three large and four small U-boats on our coast. She evidently would like to have us think sc and to call home our war fleet, if she is plan ning a battle c.n the sea. But, according to Washington, we shall nq£ do this but keep our ships in European watefs. Better to meet the pirate peril as best we can than to weaken the allied cordon which holds the enemy fleet in check. ri.., S& PEWTER AND PROMISES. In 1905 Emperor William awarded to the American winner of an ocean yacht race a mag nificent gold cup which he said was worth five thousand dollars.' It was recently auctioned aad reanctioned in New York for the beriefit of the Bed Crass until it brought one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars, when it was |broken up in an audience in which President iWilm was present, the gold remnants to be pald for the benefit of the Red Cross. It was I found to be made of pewter with a thin gold shell and worth about forty dollars. f't/'* There certainly is something symbolic about the kaiser's "gold" cup. The cup may or may have not been made in Germany but it evidently was a good piece of wormanship. This famous yachting trophy was won by an American vessel and treasured by its owner. It was not intended to be devoted to Bed Cross purposes certainly not to be broken up for re covery of the "precious metal" it contained. But it was so treated and the pieces came back from the purchasing jeweler with the message that they were worthless to him since he was no alchemist. There are certain nations which might easily find in this circumstance a fable fitting their experiences with the kaiser and his government. Treaties and promises have been beautifully laid on to the solid metal be neath. But the metal was cold steel. Ask the Poles, the Finns, the Russians what a German promise looks like when it begins to work out in practice. Ask even President Wilson how a German agreement in regard to U-boat sink ings looks when the first few weeks of war is given it. The kaiser's cup served its purpose and it was pewter. The kaiser's promises have served his purpose and they have been lies. Germany nas lett anytnmg undone to prove the-which worthlessness of her 'word, it is seemingly an "With all the German divisions massed on the western front, the peace-loving bolsheviki can now devote themselves to the peaceful work of I murdering the Finns stltute for wheat.

Philadelphia Public Ledger: Indi rect control may be as good as direct If it accomplishes the same purpose. The plan of the food administration to keep retail prices within limits la •based upon the licensing system for wholesalers. There is no authority to fix maximum prices for retailers. But they can be disciplined by the simple expedient of cutting off their supplies. With "fair price" li«ts, compiled toy local1 authorities and adapted to local conditions, consumers will have matters In their own hands. They will know at once whether they are being overcharged or not. No doubt difficulties of one sort or an other may arise in the execution of this plan, but it Is essentially simple and practical. The complaints of ex cessive prices are too frequent to be unfounded. Whenever an article ot food, especially, is recommended for consumption, it Is edvanced by leaps and bounds, as in t^e case of fish. War makes inevitable some advance In the cost of living hut an artificial advance is another matte?.
