'Treasury Gets Surplus.
Not all of the enormous price ob
tained abroad for coal goes to the
owners or miners. The foreign par-
chaser must pay the extra wage of
the miners and the strictly controled
profits of the owners, but most of
the swag goes Into the treasury

by the government under the
profits act.
"If France and Italy cannot pay us
their debt," remarked a government
official to me, "this is the only way
we can get out of them what they
owe" The treasury is getting It oat
of them at the rate of something like
sj.vo.euv.wv a year.
Most ef the bitterest controversy- in
the coal strike centered about the
question of output. It is Claimed by
tne government ana oy tne mine own
ers, and by the uoner dafM srener-
ally. that the wages of miners have
gone up so maeb during and since the
war tnat tney will not work fan
time, that the output has thus fallen
off and that the whole country suf
fers through the laziness of the over
paid workers.
Americans can understand the argu
ment better If a few .figures are gives
showing the comparative output and
wages here and In the United States.
In England in 1S8S the cost of
wages of mining a ton of eoal was

Those figures should be considered
In conjunction with the annual out
put of the average miser in the two
countries. In 181C the American miner
produced 4 OS toss, the English lit
tons, which means that the relative
wage paid to American 2nd Baelteh-
men 34 years ago for the work done
was approximately the same. But this

There are a million coal miners in
this country. ' With their families
they amount to between, four and five
million neonle. about one-tenth of the
entire nation. Their case, as I have

ers. In that they are not responsible
for the decline Is output and that
their standard of living is lower than
that which prevailed in 114. The in
crease in wages they have obtained
do not. they claim, make up for the
rise in prices, and the average ot the
miners In Wales is lower than the
recogaized minimum earned by street
sweepers and dustmen In London.

The essentials of the argstneat, so
far as it Is an economic Quarrel, have
been presented and are veery simple.
The position In the coal industry ie
regarded by opponents of government
ownership as a striking object lesson
in the evils of too ranch government
interference. By setting the price and
control ing profits, the government, it
is claimed, has prevented new capital
from being pat Into the mines. This,
in tarn, has restricted output, so the
only way the industry can be con
tinned on a paying basis is by st'll
further bleeding the unfortunate con
sumers in France and Italy. The day 1
may come when these conn tries will
be unable to pay, even though their
industries appear doomed without
English coal.
But back of economic Issues In the
coal conflict are Important political
ones. South Wales Is a center of Bol

very large proportion, if not a ma
jority, of the 600,006 miners In this
area are extremists whose aim is to
