They will be introduced by Stnator Stone of Missouri. They asked to talk with the president on business condi tions and trust legislation. The president's statement in support of Paul Warburg and Thomas D.

W. Parker, f the I nited States Geological Survey. .More satisfactory labor conditions, bet ter transportation facilities, and an im provement in market conditions were evident in the coal trade of Tennessee in 1013, and the effect of these three influences is exhibited in an increase in production of 430,556 short tons and ."03,S11, or nearly 7 per cent in both quantity and value, compared with 1W12. In neither 1012 nor 1013, however, did the production reach as high a figure as in 1910, when the maximum of 7.121,380 tons was obtained. On the other band, in' both of the later years the average value per ton was higher than in 1910. The principal market for steam coal from the Tennessee mines is afforded by the railroads traversing the southeastern states, mot of which buy some of their coal from Tennessee mines. The railroad purchases in 1013 were somewhat larger than in 1012, and one of the important systems, which for several years had been buying its supply from another source, again became a buyer of Ten nessee coal. The coal mines of Tennessee were not entirely free from labor troubles in 1913, as there were 8,"7 men on strike during the year, with an average of ;0 days each of lost time. The total number of men employed in 1913 whs ll,2rt3 and the average production per man was 613 tons for the year. The quantity of coal washed in 1013 was 707.773 tons, which yielded R2t,42ti tons of cleaned coal and 83,347 tons of refuse. Most of the coal washed is slack used in the manufacture of coke. The coal-mining fatalities in Tennessee in 1013. according to the bureau of mines, was 3.1. compared with 18 in 1012. The I 'nited States census of 1840 states thftt 5."8 short tons of coal was produced in Tennessee in that year. It is-probable that very little was mined in the state prior to that date. Pv 1800 the production had increased to l5.300i tons, but after that date development wa retarded by the Civil war. Since 1870 the production of Tennessee ha in creased rather regularly, but not so rap idly as tbat of Alabama. The Attorney Generalship. We have no sympathy for the loud call for the abolishing of the office of attorney general, which certain of the state paper are indulging in. The office is a most important one and just because its administration in the present instance has been extravagantly conducted is no reason for abolishing it. We hope the present criticism mill re sult not in doing away with the office of attorney general, but in curbing the questionable practice of employing at wholesale the servii-ea of foreign detec tive agencien, except in the moet impot tant. case. If each county sees to it that the bet men are elected to the oflice of sheriff and state's attorney this proposition will adjust itelf.

St. Jcansbary Prpublx-an. Louisiana's Sugar Revolt. Whoever lays a hand on the sugar schedule save in the way of kindness Is certain to provoke revolt in Louisiana. It was ever thus. When Cuban reci procity was under consideration Louis iana protested, declaring that a reduc tion of. the duty on Cuban sugar was testimony to the heartless indifference of the Republicans to the great industry of a Democratic state. Cuban reciproc ity came, and Louisiana managed to "get along" somehow. The damage in flicted by the Republicans was as noth- j ing compared wiin ine mow ixuiisiaim received in the house of its friends. Louisana had felt dut' bound to labor and pray for In wearv vears for thu coming of a Democratic national admin istration. The Democratic national ad ministration came and brought free sug- r with it. Louisiana's protests were disregarded. To-day its great industry is prostrated, and the state wonder If wedding itself to a party idol has not worked it. ruin. From its mood of bit ter rumination has issued a movement intended to punish the Democratic ad ministration and to break that solidity of the South which is the great asset of the Democracy. The form which the. revolt has taken is characteristic of a community which wants to be anti-Democratic without be coming Republican. In the third, or sugar district, now represented by Senator-elect Droussnrd, where the banner of revolt has been raised, leading Demo cratic workers and organizers whosi prominence is vouched for by .Mr. Hrous sard himself, have announced their de termination to support the Progressive candidate for Coneres;; and in other sec tions of the state Democrats will follow suit. The Republican candidate in the, third will withdraw in favor of the Pro gressive candidate. If these plans bring about the desired result the appearance of an anti-Democratic congressman from Louisana will be portentous. Two or three Ixwisinna. conirressmen of this per suasion will mean that the state is in clining to that protective issue, which if it can be dissociated from the race question has been counted on to break un the solid South. 1 he South is solid only because of its sectional hostility to the Republicans. The Louisiana in surgents take the name of Progressives not because they love Roosevelt, hut be cause it haa a sound less rcpellant to the wavering than Republican. j The South 'a aversion to everything Re- j publican is wors than childish it is calamitous. If southerners would divide on national lines like other people, the Souths reward woul" be immense indus trial development. It would cease to make the poor showing it now makes in the corporation and iin'ome tax return. Anv movement like that in I.oiii-ihii.1 is and which is between Governor Blease and the anti-Bleasitcs. Boston Transcript. Ulster Compromise. What the majority in the House of Lords understands by compromise is the making . of concessions by the British Liberal, Labor and Irish National par ties. iot one of the concessions offered in the home rule supplementary bill has been accepted. Each has been struck out; for the substitution of a larger demand. It was not the wish of the British cabinet or of Ireland to exclude any part of that country from the benefit of national self-government, vet for the sake of peace the cabinet offered to exclude each Lister county that might vote for its exclusion. That offer was absolutely fair. But the Cnionist peers refuse it. They know that probably not one-half of Lister would vote for ex clusion that the province, would be di vided into a home rule section consist ing of five counties and one county liorough, and an anti-home rule section of four counties and one county borougltu The proposed limit of six years for ex cluded counties was of no great moment, but the permanent exclusion of the whole of Lister, as demanded by tin) peer., may be fraught with dire results. Where is the justice of it? If to includo under the system of Irish parliamentary government the counties opposed to it would have been unjust, surely it is equally unjust to exclude from that system the counties that have voted for it at every election. The plan will not bring peace to l ister. It will not set tle the Irish question. If the Liberal leaders agree to it they will inevitably lie accused of yielding to the l.'nionist threat of civil war and betraying the 'Irish cause, and thev will onlv be ahla to carry it into law bv an alliance with the Unionists in the Commons, agninst all the Nationalists and many Liberal and l.abor representatives. Compromise may wisely jro far in order to avert the clash of armed forces. But what the peers propose would involve a throwing of political piirties into the mclling-pot for a time, with ultimate advantage to the Union ists. By sacrificing the home rule coun ties of Ulster the government miht sacrifice itself. Those are some of the grave considerations that fai-e Mr. -As-iiuith and his colleagues. Possibly their 'decision will le mutually made for them by events in I'Mcr within the next few days.
