From the zone of most activity in connection with the strike of approximately 400,000 bitu minous coal miners, - headquarters of the "United Mine Workers of America here has been, transformed .in the last ttperify-four hours to, perhaps the most lethargic. - '. ' ' . The lack of activity; however, is not due to disinterest in the strike,' but is the result of "the "sweeping-provisions of the restraining order issued yester day by Federal'Judge Anderson." com pelling the miners' officials to refrain taking any part, in conducting or en couraging the strike of the miners which, according'-. to dispatches, has been carried - tout almost to- a man among the union soft coal workers of th eountryv . vitinersr leaders , at headquarters thus far, apparently have obeyed the restraining order to the letter. They not only decline to give out state ments and reports - concerning the strike, but will not discuss their plans for combattnig the action of the gov ernment in the courts, and unless the restraining order is violated by some of these against whom it is directed,, miners' headquarters probably will re main quiet, at least until the govern ment's injunction proceedings again come up in the federal court Novem ber 8.

PENSACOLA, FLA. national of a total of 615,000 men em ployed in that industry were today on strike in response to the general strike call, effective at midnight last night, according to reports, In some instances estimated received by union leaders. Despite the federal injunction issued at Indianapolis against the strike, the leaders who generally stated they would disregard it, asserted the strike today would extended to more than 500,000 miners. Exact strength of the walk out prob ably will not be known until Monday, since in many of the country's mines Saturday has been recognized , as at least a half holiday and work sus pended altogether in others on Sun days. Mine operators early today had an nounced no plans for carrying on min ing despite the precautionary steps taken and promised by the federal and the different state governments. Neither -had they given out an esti mate of the number, of men on strike. Throughout the country the putting into effect of the walk out was or derly. No reports of violence or de struct'n of property were received and in many Instances a sufficient quota of union men' was left at the various properties, to prevent accidents or damages that would result - from stopping the machinery. .

About a week ago he got into a row with his brother, a police officer, and was arrested by the 'city authorities. I do not know of my own knowledge why this row resulted, but I have heard it stated that Mr. Hall was angry with his brother for arresting some negroes for shooting craps. As stated above, Mr. Hall was not a deputy sheriff at that time, and is not a deputy sheriff now, and hai not heen a deputy sheriff in two months, so you will understand that I have nothing "whatever to do with him In that respect. "2. With reference to the correspon dence between Commissioner Pou and Admiral Plunkett, I beg to say that I have read same with Interest. That was a controversy between Mr. Pou and the admiral, in which I had no concern. "3. With reference to the reports that liquor has been Imported into this city and has been bootlegged around the city, I beg to say that I believe this to be true, and part of it I know to be true .because there has-' been: sev eral arrests by me and my deputies for the illegal sale of liquor and because we have confiscated quantities of liquor from time to time, and because the United States authorities have also confiscated quantities ' of liquor im ported through : this port. The . very fact , that you Have heard about these things is proof conclusive that we have made a determined effort to detect violations and apprehend the" offend ers. The only cases that the public ever hears of are those in which ar rests result, because liquor is always sold secretly and the public never learns of it until the arrests have been made.'. . "I might say that doubtless consid erable liquor is being sold here, about which neither you nor I hear anything. l-Such sales are always in secret and doubtless exist. I suppose liquor is being sold all over the state, and per haps all over the country.,. It is im possible, to prevent, absoltely the sale of all liquor. All that I can do is to make a determined effort to stop - it and to arrest all offenders that come under my obesrvation and ta seize all liquors possible.

Turkish fields are said to resem ble. It has become necessary for us to look far afield, to safeguard the future. The value of this great .min eral wealth can faily be stated as three to one for sea use as compared with use on land. "The picture of what America ac complished In shipbuilding during the war became familiar to all. But what America has been doing to convert to the needs of peace the great fleet it built for war has not been in the, spot light. Th conversion of coal burning steamships to oil burners has attract ed no more attention than has the quiet establishment of these stations ' for supplying them with fuel."
