A Firm Stand Tot American
Again has the United States
demanded that tin' German
government give assurances
that the rights of Americans he
recognized and that the lives of
iioii-combntutits, whether pas?
sengers in ueutral or belliger?
ent merchant vessels, not lie put
in Jeopardy by the unwarned
destruction of ships on peaceful
errands. The note sent to the
Herman government in answer
to the flerninn answer, is no
whit less firm in its demands
thuii tho original note and it
puts the matter in so clear a
light that there etui he no mis
taking its sincerity or tlie de?
termination of its authors.
Tho United States, in the
hope for a peaceful ideating up
of the situation, relies upon the
principles of humanity, the mil
v eibully recognized understand?
ings of international law, and
the friendship of the (lei man
nation. The United States has

the note makes it plain to all
who read that the franters of

Kovurtimelil to answer yes or
no. The German government
must either place itself upon
r.eord as Homing the humane
demands of this country or
must put a stop to the harbor
ons warfare for which the tier
in in navy has become infamous.
The avenues of in hit nil ion are
closed and the Germans must
So plainly does the note show
the rectitude of the attitude of
the United States government
that we cannot see room lot
further quibbling on the part ol
Germany. The note shows so
absolutely the wrong of the
German navy that we cannot
understand the deutle for fur?
ther continuance of the warfare
upon merchant vessels and the
murder of nou combatants.
Above all things, however,
the note shows the altitude of
the United Suites regarding
tlm rights of American ship
masters and American citizens
upon the high seas. There
must be no abbreviation of those
rights for which the patriots of
76 gave their lives. They tut?
among (he fundamental posses?

ready to dufeiid them with Ins
In ibis time of stress ami tu
mult, when the average citizen
is appalled and amazed at the
carnage of Klimpe; when it hau
become the fashion to deplore
and condemn war und blood?
shed and all things which
might lead to war, the note
brings hack to the true Ameri?
can ihu realization of national
honor and the uatioiiul buinlli

Good Coal Year
The production <>f coal in Vir?
ginia in 1914 was7,059,536short
tons, valuer) at $8,082'448. Thin
wan 808,638 tons less than in
1918, with a decline in value of
$920,206, yet tin- output wns
greater than in any year pre
vious to 1913, according to fig?
ures compiled by (V K. Loslior,
in cooperation with Hie Virgin*
ia Geological Survey, and just
mailt1 public by tin- United
States (ioological Survey. The
decrease in quantity was 0.8
per cent and in value 10.3 per
cent, and is attributed to the
smaller demand from tin' iron
business for coke, us show it by
lhe fact that the doorcase of
coal made into coke represents
7il per cent of the total decrease
for the State, and to the small?
er quantity needed to meet the
requirements of the railroads
and cotton mills normally sup
phed by Virginiu coal.
In the Geological Surye) bonl
reports for IU11 and 1912 Vir
giniu and other States of the
Appalachian I'rovinee were
compared unfavorably With oili?
er Slates as to the quantity and
percentage of coal shot off the
solid. A marked improvement
in thai respect was noted in the
report for 1013 and a furllll r
improvement is shown in the
returns for 1014. Ill 1912 the
powdortnined coal amounted to
3,741)633 short ions, or 17 7 per
cent of the total; in 101)1 to 'J,
870,108 tons, or 32 0 per cent ol
the total, and in 1914 to Only
2,420,601 tons, or 30.0 per (sohl
of the total.
fror auS eral years Virginia has
stood relatively high in the
quantity of coal produced by
each man employed, and 1'.'] I
was no exception to the rule.
The number of men employed
in the coal mines of the Stale
increased from 9,102 in 1013 to
0,183 in 1914, unit the average
working time decreased from
280 days to 235, The average
production per man in 1913 wns
904 toiiB and hi 1914 was 808
tons. The average daily pro
dtictioil per man was greater in
I'M I, being 8.59 tons against
8,44 tons in 1913.
