This ,8 gurprising and proceeds, I am sure, from failure to unders and what legislation is now available for the protection of the public against interference with the suffi ciency of coal supply for the nation. There are some ten thousand soft coal mines open and shipping coal. These mines are fully equipped with underground haulage ways, ven.ilating systems, mechanical equipment and employta, so that u.ey can produce some iOO.OOO.OwO tons yeany of bituminous coal. This is 30 per cent more coal tnan the country usually needs. With 7,000 producers operating 10,000 mines in 26 different states, it is nonsense to talk about combi l,oaia ouviiv v,sus a bituminous coal nations among ;no SUccessful combinaUon among producers for the restriction of pro duction unuer such conditions any more than the farmer can success fully combine to put up the price of wheat, corn, cotxin or other ag ricultural commodities. . You ask, then, what causes these periodical shortages of coal. Just two things : Poor Transportation. First, some deficiency of trans- portation which, for a period makes it impossible to ship from the mines the tonnage of coal needed to meet current demands. That is a matter, it may be argued, against which the public should be safe guarded and protected, I agree. What is not generally understood, however, that this already has been done and the public now, through ample legislation, is fully protected .. . U . Ll-J . r u-'h: " transporUAm act.

Clearly, then, no more legislation is needed to protect the public against that kind of inter ruption in its coal supply. ' Strikes Intemni. ' Now the only other serious inter ruption to coal supply arises from strkes. This may come from strikes not tn the coil industry at all. but among railway employes, dockmen, truck drivers, etc.. as well as among coal miners. So far there is no protection to the public against that kind of interruption of its coal supply. . Let me say. therefore, that" with the legislation now on the statute books, it i clear no further law Is reeded for the control and regula tion of the production and distri bution of coal.

There are two ways in which the Unite! States can assist to accom plish this great object. First, by offering the example within her own borders of the will and power of democracy to make and enforce 1. nl. ava nnnaotinnahW 111 ct Ti. i V- 7li- its full right to labor and yet at the same time safeguard the integ- rF nrne ami r,arnniariv nf that nronertv' which is devoted to the development of industry and the increase of the necessary wealth of the world. Second, by standing for right and justice as towards individual nations. The law of democracy is for the pro jection of the weak, and the influ ence of every democracy in the world should be for the protection of the weak nations, the nation which is struggling towards ' its right and towards its proper recog nition and privilege in the family of nations. The United States can not refuse this role of champion without putting the stigma of re. jection upon the great and devoted " "1 men w..DUE"u!..?"T"a.r ... . of .imnSt universal on: into existence a.uu esLauusueu it ti,,,, and intrigue even in the face of wanton force, as, for exam pis. against the orders in council of Great Britain and the arbitrary Napoleonic decrees which involved us in what we know as the war of 1812. I urge you to consider that the display of an immediate dis position on the part of congress to remedy any Injustices or evils that may have shown themselves in our own national life will afford the most effectual offset to the forces of chaos and tyranny which are playing so disastrous a part in the j fortunes of the free peoples of more man one part oi tne woria. - ine United States is of necessity .the sample democracy of the world, and the triumph of democracy de pends upon its success.

The total ordinary re ceipts of $6,694,000,000 for the fis cal year 1920 exceeded those for 1919 by $1,542,000,000, while the to tal net ordinary expenditures de creased from $18,5lf,000,000 to $6,403,000,000.

SPIRIT WANT TARIFFS COVERING ALL FARM PRODUCE Protection Demanded By Farmers On "From Pea nuts to Wool" List. Indianapolis, Ind., Dec: 7. (Unit ed Press.) Demands for protective tariffs covering farm products from peanuts to wool, were demanded by i delegates to the convention of the j American farm Bureau federation in session here today, President J. R. Howard declared ; sentiment from all sections ot the country was solidifying behind a tariff program, though in the past the farmer has been regarded as a "free trader." "Our tariff demands are not radi cal," Howard said. "All that we want is equality in tariff legislation as it pertains, to industrial and ag- j ricultural products.' The proposed duty oa foreign peanuts is not intended to make the bags at the ball parks smaller, but merely to afford protection for southern growers who turn much of their product into oil. They are now facing serious i competition from foreign imports of vegetable oil. Delegates from Michigan and Cal ifornia, the largest bean producing states, are clamoring for a duty on Japanese beans, contending that shipments from that country where labor js comparatively cheao are ruining the industry in this coun try. Canadian shipments of pota toes also are worrying American larmers. Canadian farmers can place potatoes on the Detroit mar ket cheaper because of the freight ducers In that my. Howard said". Sheep producers are' vigorously opposing shipments duty free of wool from Australia and meats from Argentina, claiming the sheep industry In the United States is endangered by this competition.
